X-COM: Terror from the Deep (PlayStation)

X-COM: Terror from the Deep review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 04, 2008

You start the game with bloody harpoons guns! The only way to close the vast technologic gap between races is to slaughter in mass number, steal the weapons from their corpses, and have your boffins at home make you human-friendly versions.
Wow (PC)

Wow review (PC)

Reviewed on November 02, 2008

At first glace, itís just an empty room. After moving around for a while, it remains an empty room. You will decide it is an empty room and is the epitome of awful .wad construction. You will be proved wrong. Against all odds, it manages to get worse. Worse than an empty room.
SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 (PlayStation 2)

SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 01, 2008

SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 does a commendable job of bringing you more hits than misses in its library of sixteen titles, and carries along with it a few surprise packages in game you would have never played but far from regret spending time with.
Doodle Hex (DS)

Doodle Hex review (DS)

Reviewed on November 01, 2008

Rarely are the nuances of a game so succulently wrapped up in a gameís very title; Doodle Hex is all about slinging spells, curses and arcane incarnations through sketching runes on the touch screen in a frenzied attempt to out-wizard emo rock fairies, millennia-old, pre-teen Norse goddess, Valley-girl witches and flaming djinns hailing from Brooklyn.
Boing! Docomodake DS (DS)

Boing! Docomodake DS review (DS)

Reviewed on October 27, 2008

Welcome to my new dilemma. It's called Boing! Docomdake, and it's clearly after my sanity.
PDC World Championship Darts 2008 (PSP)

PDC World Championship Darts 2008 review (PSP)

Reviewed on October 25, 2008

What weíre given overall is serviceable and commendable. Two words that perhaps donít scream game of the year, but the reality of the situation is that, no matter how I dress it up in eccentric Britishness, the topic of today is still a dartís sim. That sound you hear is the vast majority of the PSP consumer base stampeding towards the fire exits. Weíll throw in a metaphorical pause while they close the doors behind them before I slide in the dramatic twist -- PDC Darts 2008 is a fun little game nonetheless.
PDC World Championship Darts 2008 (Xbox 360)

PDC World Championship Darts 2008 review (X360)

Reviewed on October 19, 2008

No one held their breath in anticipation, robbing me of a sense of clichťd drama. Their loss. The 360 version doesnít really try to innovate or reinvent the original game; it simply builds upon it, gives you a create a character system of note, marries it up to decent career mode and throws the entire thing online.
The Political Machine 2008 (PC)

The Political Machine 2008 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 13, 2008

The presidential race is split into forty one weeks. This gives you forty one turns to play out in the same time as your opponent to fly all over America and convince as many states as you can to vote for you. By any means necessary..
Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King (DS)

Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King review (DS)

Reviewed on October 12, 2008

Ankh remains a game worth playing. Just not in this form.
Kolibri (Sega 32X)

Kolibri review (32X)

Reviewed on October 11, 2008

Arguably the best hummingbird/scrolling shooter hybrid on the SEGA 32X
Doom 3 (Xbox)

Doom 3 review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 01, 2008

It's pointless cosmetics-first-gameplay-last software at its worst.
Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions (DS)

Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions review (DS)

Reviewed on September 28, 2008

Iíll be honest; I had it all planned out in my head before the cart was even in the DS. We all already know what Mahjong is, so Iíd joke about having to met a word quota, throw in an obligatory and basic description on how the ancient Chinese tile-matching game worked then be all flippant while I padded the rest of the review out. Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions foils my plan by not being just another tile flipper aided by stylus prodding.
Jewel Quest: Expeditions (DS)

Jewel Quest: Expeditions review (DS)

Reviewed on September 28, 2008

Familiar because itís been seen before. Familiar because there are fourteen puzzle games released on the DS for any other genre and familiar because Jewel Quest has already been seen on XBLA and won the internet over when initially released by IWin.com online. Familiar doesnít always mean bad.
Nightmare Circus (Genesis)

Nightmare Circus review (GEN)

Reviewed on September 26, 2008

The worst of the worst.
Monster Madness: Grave Danger (PlayStation 3)

Monster Madness: Grave Danger review (PS3)

Reviewed on September 21, 2008

If you want a new-gen Smash TV with corpses other than slightly homosexual-looking guys in body-tight red jumpsuits made from latex, then your choices are already pretty limited. Monster Madness: Grave Danger is pretty much the only way to go, but thatís okay. As long as you donít belong in certain pigeonholes, you could have some fun here.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360)

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion review (X360)

Reviewed on September 14, 2008

This could have been a Skyrim review, but was backtracked to Oblivion.
Dream Pinball 3D (DS)

Dream Pinball 3D review (DS)

Reviewed on September 09, 2008

The table spans out on the bottom screen, the top sprawled with skulls, magic books and bumpers shaped like medieval castles. For some reason, a few of the bonuses unlock a tweeting bird song, but Iím willing to forgive it. Barely. Itís a very annoying side effect.
Quake III Arena (Dreamcast)

Quake III Arena review (DC)

Reviewed on August 31, 2008

Whenever I gained the ability of flight, there was always a watered down version of the Bitterman rule that slowly evolved. ďHeís flying again! Get him!Ē
Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (Game Boy Advance)

Lord of the Rings: The Third Age review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 22, 2008

Unlike the version hoarded across the XBox, PS2 and Gamecube (which got the odd third party title by what I assume was someoneís mistake), the GBA Third Age is content to take its material straight from the source. It doesn't steal mechanics from well-known Square games, it doesn't cock-slap the canon. It simply exists in the shadow of a lesser game, probably feeling very bitter and upset about the entire thing.
Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 1: Sarah Bryant (Saturn)

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 1: Sarah Bryant review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 20, 2008

The next shot is of her abandoned beech-towel and parasol. I start rooting for Sarah, hoping she can get away! She fails. We find her slinging a pair of flowers over her shoulder and snarling at the screen. Some people might mistake it for a light-hearted grin but, by now, we know better.
