StarTropics (NES)

StarTropics review (NES)

Reviewed on April 28, 2013

StarTropics provides a fun and fascinating combination of various elements, but one miscalculation results in the title being tragically overlooked or even completely forgotten by many of today’s players, even those who might frequently delve into retro gaming.

Willow (NES)

Willow review (NES)

Reviewed on April 28, 2013

When you get to a town, count on walking through about 20 screens to find the five or so homes that you can actually enter to find information, items or a place to rest. Midway through the game, when you have to scale a pair of towers, enjoy seeing the same few screens as you ascend each one's multiple, identical floors.

Dr. Chaos (NES)

Dr. Chaos review (NES)

Reviewed on April 25, 2013

This could have been one of those forgotten 8-bit classics, but the poor controls, repetitive item farming, and awful music keep this decidedly in the B-tier of NES games.

Super Black Bass 3D (3DS)

Super Black Bass 3D review (3DS)

Reviewed on April 23, 2013

Too clusmy to be a sim. Too slow to be arcade. Too ugly to get a second look.

Ice Climber review (NES)

Reviewed on April 22, 2013

Very nearly lands on the platform of greatness, but accidentally slips through the edge instead.

Hudson’s Adventure Island is Super Mario Bros. on steroids.

Gitaroo-Man (PlayStation 2)

Gitaroo-Man review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 21, 2013

Gitaroo Man is a dream for genre purists, and is destined to live on as a fondly remembered cult classic.

Excitebike (NES)

Excitebike review (NES)

Reviewed on April 21, 2013

Though it's solidly made, and features some slightly catchy tunes to go along with its somewhat-iconic NES visuals, Excitebike doesn't really offer players a lot of depth.

Golf review (NES)

Reviewed on April 21, 2013

Golf for the NES is one of those games that delivers exactly what it promises in the title.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - Soul Hackers review (3DS)

A brutal patchwork of exaggerations, underachieving and wasted potential.

Part brawler. Part run 'n gun. All lackluster.

G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor (NES)

G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor review (NES)

Reviewed on April 18, 2013

Typically, video game sequels are able to build upon the experiences that their predecessors offered. I tend to enjoy any follow-ups far more than I do the initial installments for that reason, but it was clear to me as I played through G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor that something had gone very wrong in the design process. The result is a sequel that is inferior to the original title in nearly every way.

Cursed Loot review (X360)

Cheat to win! Or, at least, to shamelessly rehash for fame and profit.

Snow Bros. (NES)

Snow Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on April 15, 2013

Snowmen are criminally underrepresented as video game protagonists.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct (Xbox 360)

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct review (X360)

Reviewed on April 15, 2013

The game spooked me on a couple of occasions and frequently almost has enough atmosphere to make its many shortcomings worth overlooking, but then you come across a walker staring at a wall, getting stuck to an object or running in circles due to pathfinding confusion and all immersion is shattered.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (NES)

Gremlins 2: The New Batch review (NES)

Reviewed on April 15, 2013

No one would blame you if you saw Gremlins 2: The New Batch sitting on a used game store shelf somewhere and quickly looked past it. There have been plenty of awful movie-based video games over the years, and the NES certainly wasn’t immune to this phenomenon. Look closer, though, and you’ll realize that this particular game was developed by Sunsoft, a company that produced some of the best software available for the original Nintendo console.
