Splatterhouse (Arcade)

Splatterhouse review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 21, 2007

The wanton cruelty of SplatterHouse is what really makes it worth sinking one's teeth into, much like the famished parasitic leeches that soon bore out of the surrounding rancid flesh to feast upon Rick’s warm, tasty blood if given the chance.

Exit 2 (PSP)

Exit 2 review (PSP)

Reviewed on July 20, 2007

Sorry, but I've not played the first Exit and unless you're a big puzzle enthusiast or Japanese (in which case, konichi wa!) odds are, neither have you. Despite racking up respectable review scores, Taito's PSP brain teaser/action hybrid didn't fly off shelves. If the sequel is anything to go off of, that's really a bit of a shame.

Lifeline (PlayStation 2)

Lifeline review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 18, 2007

Lifeline’s notorious gimmick is the near-complete neglect of the controller. Instead, it relies upon voice recognition through the PS2 headset. Since you are stuck in the monitor room and Rio has the analytical mentality of a first-grader, you have to guide her every move through the space station via vocal commands.

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek (PC)

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek review (PC)

Reviewed on July 17, 2007

As a mystery story, White Wolf is somewhat dry. Nancy has been hired to investigate a series of dangerous incidents, including a few explosions, at Icicle Creek Lodge, but in order to fully investigate she’ll have to pull triple duty as a maid, cook, and detective. The plot unfolds steadily enough, but there’s never really the level of intrigue or danger that it so desperately tries to achieve. Sure, there are bombings—but nobody dies. Yeah, everyone’s a viable suspect with possible motives—but, really, so what?

Leisure Suit Larry 1: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards (VGA Remake) (PC)

Leisure Suit Larry 1: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards (VGA Remake) review (PC)

Reviewed on July 17, 2007

The outlandish visuals are obviously a major leap forward – the world of Lost Wages has been completely redefined in 256-color VGA to the point where it looks like a zany cartoon. Those lovelorn ladies, on the other hand, go for sultry realism . . . except for that one time when you have to get it on with a deluxe model blow-up doll, but that doesn’t really count.

Sex Vixens from Space (Amiga)

Sex Vixens from Space review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on July 16, 2007

Simply based on the title, you might expect this game to be a bad ripoff of the legendary text adventure Leather Goddesses of Phobos. Or you might be whipping out the Vaseline and old gym socks. But oh man, either way would you ever be WRONG! Unlike the pile of bad adventure games that are merely forgettable, Sex Vixens From Space actually manages to be noteworthy thanks to reverse achievement. Whether pretty graphics, raunchy humor or rugged sex appeal, there’s no start to its good points.

Vapor Trail (Genesis)

Vapor Trail review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 13, 2007

In Vapor Trail you can take three hits before blowing up while your pilot’s WONDERFULLY digitized voice utters something along the lines of ”A gin olt gi!” (possible translation: “I can’t hold it!”). Oh, and this isn’t just a case of giving a player one plane that can take three hits — you have three lives, as well. Sure, the next life will start out with no weaponry beyond a weak gun, but this game still is far more generous than the average shooter.

Marvel Trading Card Game (DS)

Marvel Trading Card Game review (DS)

Reviewed on July 12, 2007

The nice thing about card games is that they allow for an absurd number of characters to be included, even if their roles are nearly meaningless. This lends itself nicely to a world like Marvel, where characters already exist in spades, and don't have to be created to suit the game. Everyone can find a home in a deck of cards.

Attack on Pearl Harbor (PC)

Attack on Pearl Harbor review (PC)

Reviewed on July 11, 2007

Choosing to play as either a Japanese or American pilot, you'll follow the tale of a single air force member from start to finish. The single-player game involves following a clever mission-based campaign mode, fighting the real battles of the war in the South Pacific.

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree (Wii)

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree review (WII)

Reviewed on July 10, 2007

It's hard to find a title explicitly set on teaching that players will want to get better at and that everyone in the family can enjoy together.

The King of Fighters 2006 (PlayStation 2)

The King of Fighters 2006 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2007

When you buy this game, you will be holding in your hands the game that you really hoped the first one was. You will have the game that you wanted, that you needed, and that you deserved.

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille (Wii)

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille review (WII)

Reviewed on July 06, 2007

It also happens to be a title that was clearly developed with the PlayStation 2 in mind. The game works like a charm on the system, and there are times when the Wii version feels clunky by comparison. Fortunately for the Wii, the inverse is sometimes true. For example, there are many places where Remy will run along a series of wires, or jump across a series of poles suspended high in the air. With the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, it’s easy to pull off such daring moves.

The King of Fighters XI (PlayStation 2)

The King of Fighters XI review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

It's the mediocre games that are destined to be forgotten about, confined to the great recycling centre in the sky, leaving a trail of average reviews in their wake. Sadly, King Of Fighters XI is one such game. Check out our review to find out why.

The Legend of Silkroad (Arcade)

The Legend of Silkroad review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

Every single time a player loses a life and either starts their next one or continues the game, not only do all enemies on the screen get knocked down (a common procedure in these games), but they also lose a noticeable amount of life. Technically, it is possible for a player to defeat even the toughest bosses in this game WITHOUT lifting a finger. Sure, it’d be completely lame for anyone to consider this an acceptable way to win fights — but the simple fact it’s possible to advance through powerhouse foes in this manner is shocking to me.

Armored Core 4 (Xbox 360)

Armored Core 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on July 04, 2007

Don't let the number on the end of Armored Core fool you: here we have a series that's run a lot longer than the aforementioned '4' would have you believe. Totalling eleven titles thus far in, FROM Software have steadily marched their mechanical army into the homes of players since the early days of the PSX. Armored Core 12 4 is the first game to feature on the newest wave on console, but it’s very much a case of not straying from the beaten track.

Return to Mysterious Island (PC)

Return to Mysterious Island review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

This will please fans of the book, as will how faithful the game remains to Verne's pre-written legacy. While exploring the island, you'll come across key locations such as the mill, Granite House and the littering of sulphuric pools that dot the island. You'll find numerous references to the original party that called the island home as well as an appreciated (if not rather hackneyed) explanation as to how the start of the game links in to the finale of the book.

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille (PlayStation 2)

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 02, 2007

You just never know what a mission will involve until you accept it. Some have you completing mini-games, others have you sliding down huge slides and collecting stars, others have you rushing to the highest points of an area and still others ask you to run toward through cluttered environments while an enemy chases you. If you don’t feel like completing a mission at the moment, you don’t have to.

Tortuga:Two Treasures (PC)

Tortuga:Two Treasures review (PC)

Reviewed on July 02, 2007

The damage engine in particular is exceptional, as you can see individual sails being ripped, and holes appearing in the sides of the ships due to cannon fire. Honestly, it is quite an impressive sight. The sea itself is handled very well, with sharks circling for snacks in the form of men overboard!

Ancient Wars: Sparta (PC)

Ancient Wars: Sparta review (PC)

Reviewed on July 01, 2007

While Sparta may look nice, it feels as though somebody took great elements from all over the RTS genre and put them all together in one game. It's a case where the whole is less than the sum of its parts, probably due to the fact that most of the parts are quite dated.

Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition (PSP)

Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 28, 2007

In the original Final Fantasy, frequent encounters meant that players had to carefully execute each dungeon assault. Preparations sometimes required an hour or so of play time, just because each labyrinthine complex posed such a risk. On the PSP, the frequency of those battles has been toned down by something like 50%. You’ll still find moments where your avatar leaves one battle behind and takes only two or three steps before finding another, but such instances are infrequent.
