Dawnspire: Prelude (PC)

Dawnspire: Prelude review (PC)

Reviewed on June 04, 2007

Then the amount of people on the server dropped and the bots came. Playing Dawnspire with the bots is an exercise in tedium.

The Red Star (PlayStation 2)

The Red Star review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 31, 2007

One part shoot-'em-up, one part beat-'em-up, and all parts "old school," this adrenaline-fueled hybrid is a blitzkrieg embroiled in frenetic gunplay and hard-hitting melee combat.

Time Gal (Sega CD)

Time Gal review (SCD)

Reviewed on May 30, 2007

Time Gal is a frenetic romp that’s full of action rather than frustration as you hop back and forth along its chaotic sequence of time periods with our title character likewise bounding to and fro in her skimpy outfit – not that I have any problem with lithe adventuresses who meddle in the workings of time and space, no sir.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened (PC)

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened review (PC)

Reviewed on May 30, 2007

Remember playing Grim Fandango or The Longest Journey and getting stuck? Remember trying to find that needle in the haystack by moving your mouse and covering every inch of your screen, hoping to come across a hotspot and finding a key item or initiating an action? Well, those haystacks have grown exponentially thanks to The Awakened being played in first-person.

Silver Surfer (NES)

Silver Surfer review (NES)

Reviewed on May 30, 2007

I’m not sure who Emperor is or what his powers are, but if the best he can do is stand in back of a wall of guns and immediately give up the ghost after they are destroyed....well, he’s a pretty sorry excuse for a villain. Usually, boss fights are the awesome part of superhero games, as players are going against well-known bad guys with a slew of cool abilities and powers. Here, the Surfer is taking on a bunch of (for the most part) no-name chumps that really aren’t much more than regular foes that take more damage before falling.

LMA Manager 2007 (Xbox 360)

LMA Manager 2007 review (X360)

Reviewed on May 29, 2007

That’s not how I want a team under my charge to play, and it’s a shame that you can’t train you team out of such habits; it’s not their fault, it’s LMA 2007’s match engine that spits these problems out.

Doushin: Same Heart (PC)

Doushin: Same Heart review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

You've probably played games in the past where you made a choice and were greeted by hours of dialogue and suddenly found yourself thinking woefully that somehow, somewhere, you were missing out on an orgy. Not so here! Now you simply click to jump to one of the other sisters. If no one around her seems randy, well, click to the other. Surely, a zipper is dropping somewhere.

MinDStorm (DS)

MinDStorm review (DS)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

The worth of your brain levels are easy to call into question, too. They never decrease with incorrect answers and, if one set of puzzles prove too hard for you, you can dodge the harder incarnations of them and instead do several of the same puzzles on an easier setting to rack up the same promotion. In fact, after only about half an hour or so on the easiest setting, you can climb your level onto that of a PhD mind – which sounds very impressive for a few shape-nudges and math sequence algorithms.

Virtual Skipper 5: 32nd America's Cup - The Game (PC)

Virtual Skipper 5: 32nd America's Cup - The Game review (PC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2007

32nd America's Cup is a sailboat racing simulation, and a sailboat racing simulation by its very nature is pretty much the exact opposite of the white knuckle speed-thrill games (for comparison, the top speed I've seen in this game is around 45 km/h. Noticably slower than 2,000). So, instead of simply holding the accellerator down and making the proper turns, America's Cup requires planning ahead, a healthy understanding of weather conditions, constant knowledge of your position relative to your opponent's, and proper jib manipulation.

Devil's Crush (TurboGrafx-16)

Devil's Crush review (TG16)

Reviewed on May 26, 2007

Your ball may rocket about, violently colliding with bumpers and careening off flippers with all the reckless abandon of – well, a pinball – but no matter how chaotic things get it always feels like the real thing. Assuming one could find a real machine swarming with demons in miniature, that is.

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS (DS)

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS review (DS)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Naturally, placing cards isn’t as simple as sorting through all of your options and proving yourself clever. You are instead the victim of chance. Later matches even mostly come down to who draws the best hand from the start. Each round, a new card presents itself. You might find it useless or be stunned by its value.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT 2 (PlayStation 2)

Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Numerous customization options also mean that this game is a car fanatics’ wet dream. Those are almost more important than the cars themselves.

The Sacred Rings review (PC)

There is nothing like a good adventure game. Unfortunately, Aura 2 is nothing like a good adventure game.

Odin Sphere (PlayStation 2)

Odin Sphere review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 22, 2007

Odin Sphere is frustrating like that. The threat of exertion and the constant need to snack on restorative items exist throughout the entire game. Button mashing seldom leads to victory over even the simplest of adversaries. Instead, you must strike and retreat while dipping frequently into your bag of supplies.

Jeopardy! Teen Tournament (Game Boy)

Jeopardy! Teen Tournament review (GB)

Reviewed on May 21, 2007

Having two people there to answer questions instead of three really changes the dynamic, and not for the better. A lot of the strategy is removed. All you must do to win is beat out the one guy. That’s actually not too terribly difficult if you know the answers to a lot of trivia, as I apparently do.

Spider-Man 3 (PlayStation 3)

Spider-Man 3 review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 20, 2007

Such moments rock, but they’re counter-balanced by tedious missions. Early on, those revolve around stopping the various gangs that are battling for control of the city. Later, you have to take on super villains. The problem with these missions is that they’re not particularly fun, not when you could be out swinging around the city, riding on top of cars and whatever else interests you.

Bust-A-Move Bash! (Wii)

Bust-A-Move Bash! review (WII)

Reviewed on May 18, 2007

Rather than press ‘left’ or ‘right’ on the d-pad, you hold the controller toward the screen like a wand and turn it toward the left or right. This causes the launch mechanism at the bottom center of the television screen to shift accordingly. It’s truly a satisfying improvement that brings a new dimension to the game… when it works. The problem is that sometimes things go haywire.

Bone: The Great Cow Race (PC)

Bone: The Great Cow Race review (PC)

Reviewed on May 18, 2007

What the game lacks in complexity, it makes up for with simple charm. Bone quite nearly drips with personality. Every bit of dialogue is an opportunity for a wry quip or a zany grin-to-yourself kind of line, all of which are delivered with stellar voice acting. Where else can you find a stuffed chicken for a vendor who makes soup with 'a pinch of sawdust', or tangle with a giant honeybee that has a New York tough-guy accent? Nowhere, that's where.

7 Wonders of the Ancient World (PSP)

7 Wonders of the Ancient World review (PSP)

Reviewed on May 17, 2007

After all, the 8 levels you get here will probably last you around that many hours before you complete them, and you can then go back and play them for better scores. Really, it all comes down to how the game plays. Thanks to power-ups and cornerstones, it plays pretty well.

Ankh: Heart of Osiris (PC)

Ankh: Heart of Osiris review (PC)

Reviewed on May 16, 2007

Anhk: Heart of Osiris starts off directly after the original Ankh finishes. After a misunderstanding with Thana over a love letter sent by the spurned pharaoh’s daughter, he hits the tiles, gets wrecked and wakes up in a side ally with a killer headache and a conspicuous lack of Ankh. After being convinced by a clairvoyant bet-taker that his fate was inter-tined with the odd artefact, Assil is grudgingly forced to start a new quest all over again.
