Jet Force Gemini (Nintendo 64)

Jet Force Gemini review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

As a third-person shooter, the formula for JFG works perfectly. For instance, pressing the 'R' shoulder button will change the view to a semi-first-person view, with your character's body becoming transparent, and a crosshair appearing on-screen. You can move the crosshair with the analog stick, and/or move using the C buttons.

Final Fantasy III (SNES)

Final Fantasy III review (SNES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The Espers were another thing I loved. They were as powerful as Rydia's Summoned Monsters from FF4, but more useful in that they taught you spells. I also happened to love the spells (but then, is there anything I DON'T love about this game?)

Donkey Kong 64 (Nintendo 64)

Donkey Kong 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Donkey Kong 64 follows closely the tried-and-true Mario/Banjo-Kazooie action-adventure philosophy, and, to enter new levels, you not only need to defeat the bosses, but you also need to collect golden bananas, which you will get when you solve certain puzzles or perform special tasks.

Final Fantasy II (SNES)

Final Fantasy II review (SNES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I pride myself on my ability to guess plot twists, and some of the events in this game caught me totally by surprise. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of plot revealed in this game. After I finished the game, I was disappointed that I was finished--I wanted it to just keep going.

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete (PlayStation)

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Each character has conflicts to resolve, both outer and inner--such as the, uh, tempestuous relationship between Jessica and Kyle . . . Also, something else I appreciated is the fact that the characters were mainly original, and not stereotypes.

The Legend of Dragoon (PlayStation)

The Legend of Dragoon review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The Additions system was all right, but the Dragoon magic really annoyed me. First of all, in order to use the right spells, you have to have the right person in your party. There is no way for Meru to use a Fire spell, or for Albert to use a Thunder spell.

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Like the Materia system, you lose spells when you change Junctions and magic around. And I tend to forget who has what spell, so I go to have Rinoa cast Aura, and find out that not only did I give all of her Aura to Quistis, but Quistis isn't in my party. AAAAAAACK!

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Final Fantasy VII was Square's first attempt at a Final Fantasy for the Playstation. As an RPG, as a game, I suppose one could classify it as average. But given that Final Fantasy has a history of truly extraordinary games, ''average'' is hardly a compliment.

Final Fantasy Anthology (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy Anthology review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

However, another massive mistake Square made was in the emulation of the Super Nintendo games onto the Playstation format. There's tremendous lag time between when you push a button, and when you see the results on screen. It can take up to ten seconds to get in or out of the menu screen.

Final Fantasy IX (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IX review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I laughed, and even cried a little, at various points in the game. Not since Final Fantasy VI have I gotten so totally sucked into a game. This game will be within easy reach of my Playstation for a long, long time.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

If I have one major gripe with this game, it is the perspective from which you play. (Well, that and the ANNOYING little faerie who flits around being a complete airhead.) Sometimes it became difficult or impossible to really see what I was doing due to the perspective.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PlayStation 2)

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty review (PS2)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The level of realism in this game can really screw you over at times, but it also gives you so many different possibilities when it comes to making it through.

Sonic Adventure 2 (Dreamcast)

Sonic Adventure 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Where I find Sonic and Shadow's versus mode to be more fun than any of the others, I'm sure everyone will find something to like here. All the characters even have special moves that you can use after collecting so many rings, such as Shadow's Chaos Control. Very cool.

Wave Race: Blue Storm (GameCube)

Wave Race: Blue Storm review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

You press buttons and you wonder if you're holding the wrong controller and behind you, somewhere you can't see, there's a drunk controlling things. Your vehicle bounces about, into rocks, against walls...everywhere but where it should be going.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

And between every area you can grind, there's a smooth path that lets you manual. That means that, in essence, the only limit to your score is your lack of elite skills. I have a severe lack, there. Fortunately, there's a tutorial.

The Simpsons: Road Rage (GameCube)

The Simpsons: Road Rage review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Because The Simpsons Road Rage not only frequently equals Crazy Taxi in terms of playability but sometimes passes it, and because of the well-used Simpsons license, this is one title I have no problem recommending for at least a rental and perhaps even a purchase.

Luigi's Mansion (GameCube)

Luigi's Mansion review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

For the most part, you move from one puzzle to another, with little chance of dying in between. Enter a room and a ghost is present, but you have to figure out a way to make it appear long enough to defeat it.

Kuru Kuru Kururin (Game Boy Advance)

Kuru Kuru Kururin review (GBA)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

You can speed the stick up, change its direction using special springs found around the levels, collect certain items which allow you to customize your stick, rescue cute little ducklings, and even change the length of your stick.

Adventures in the Magic Kingdom (NES)

Adventures in the Magic Kingdom review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The end package, then, is a collection of half-arsed experiences that add up to a moderate flop. I say moderate because this is Capcom, a company that seldom if ever has produced pure garbage. But with such a high standard set in their other Disney efforts, a potential consumer has a right to expect a lot more than what this package delivers.

Spider-Man review (PS2)

If you're anything like me, you'll be wishing for more. If you've seen the movie, you're better off just playing the PSone titles.
