Red Faction II (PC)

Red Faction II review (PC)

Reviewed on June 16, 2005

Red Faction came along a while back and promised to change gaming forever. Usually, when a developer promises this, they fail. Red Faction didnít exactly fail, but the highly touted Geo-Mod feature which was included in the game that allowed you to destroy any part of the environment was sadly underutilized and most of the time pointless. Turns out, putting a big hole in the wall is just a big waste of time and ammunition when thereís an unlocked door that leads to the same point. ...
Half-Life 2 (PC)

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 24, 2005

You know, itís truly a testament to great game design when you beat a game and feel sad that itís over. Sure, I can always go back and play through Half-Life 2 again, and I will. But will it have that same "magic" like it did my first time? That ďwhat are they going to throw at me this timeĒ element of surprise; where I constantly anticipating whatís around that next turn or in that building? I know it will still be awesome, and I'll still love it and all that jazz, but is it possible to ...
Time Crisis II (PlayStation 2)

Time Crisis II review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 23, 2005

Time Crisis 2 is a simple game, but sometimes thatís a good thing. Iím a simple man; I donít always want to be bombarded with ridiculous amounts of options, puzzles, menus, and storylines that canít be skipped. Sometimes, I just want to shoot first, ask questions later, like Vin Diesel does in many of his films. Sadly, there are few options out there for people like me, but Namco steps up to the plate and delivers with their lightgun titles, including Time Crisis 2. When youíre han...
Vampire Night (PlayStation 2)

Vampire Night review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 13, 2005

I came across Vampire Night at an old arcade in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. I could tell that the arcade unit had seen some use over the years, but now, it was moved to a far corner, pushed aside and replaced with a fancier, brighter, properly working Time Crisis 3 machine. That Vampire Night game, with its calibration that was more than a hair off and a screen that was a little too dark, still seemed to cry ďplay me!Ē I only gave that unit a few of my quarters, but it gave me...
Barbie Horse Adventures: Mystery Ride (PC)

Barbie Horse Adventures: Mystery Ride review (PC)

Reviewed on December 12, 2004

The title Barbieís Horse Adventures could fit way more than a video game. They could turn it into the title for a movie, or perhaps a series of books. Maybe Mattel could make it into a set of dolls for all the little kids. Alternately, a guy named Steve could use the name for a pay-for-porn site and charge people to watch hot blondes get it on with our equestrian friends. Oh the possibilities. However, a Google search only shows Barbieís Horse Adventures as a game, so as of press t...
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube)

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 01, 2004

I sat down in the bathroom the other day (where all fans of periodicals go to read) and was reading MITís Technology Review magazine for July and August. Inside, there was an article on nanotechnology, and how itís going to change the future for all sorts of communication gadgets. There was also another article discussing a man in Utahís new exoskeleton that would allow soldiers on the battlefield to carry massive weight without being fatigued through the use of hydraulics. Itís very iron...
Serious Sam:  The First Encounter (PC)

Serious Sam: The First Encounter review (PC)

Reviewed on June 14, 2004

I can honestly say that only a few things have ever actually hurt my brain. One thing that I remember as a brain-hurter was when my friend Chris and I took apart this really old TV and broke a tube inside it that was labeled as dangerous. Suffice to say, I have worn glasses ever since. Another thing that made my brain hurt was Chemistry. Never knew what was going on in there, but after an hour and a half of learning it, my brain felt like it got sucker-punched by Muhammad Ali. The only thing els...
RLH: Run Like Hell (PlayStation 2)

RLH: Run Like Hell review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 21, 2004

I waited for this game for quite a while. But I absolutely refuse to begin this review in the same manner as every other review Iíve ever read for it. They all go along about the same thing: this game was announced before the PS2 was even announced, was in development for quite some time, blah blah blah. Yeah, it took a while to get here. And the end result wasnít as good as expected. Thatís the way it goes sometimes. So hereís a real introduction: Run Like Hell (RLH) is a third-person pe...
EyeToy: Play (PlayStation 2)

EyeToy: Play review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 19, 2004

The other day two of my buddies and I were just sitting in my room when all the sudden these ninjas come out of no where and started attacking us. At first, we kept getting hit but eventually we were able to stop their onslaught. It was pretty freaking crazy; we didnít even realize what was happening. Even worse, a little later we got attacked by this huge boxing robot. I donít know what the hell that guy was thinking, but we pummeled him just like we were Muhammad Ali. Three soft jabs with the ...
Rise to Honor (PlayStation 2)

Rise to Honor review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 15, 2004

Itís hard not to become interested in Sonyís latest action-adventure game Rise to Honor (RtH) because of the main character, Kit Yun. ďKit YunĒ may not be a familiar name, but Kitís character is built around the ever popular action-film star Jet Li, who was completely rendered, motion captured, and voiced for the game. Through the gameís introduction, weíre told that Kit is a bodyguard for a notorious leader of a Hong Kong crime syndicate. However, things arenít always so two-dimen...
Time Crisis 3 (PlayStation 2)

Time Crisis 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 20, 2004

I remember this last summer, a friend of mine and I ventured off to Maine on vacation. It was a fun trip with lots of little memories here and there, but one memory that sticks with me was the amount of time we spent in the arcades on Old Orchard Beach playing Time Crisis 3. The last shooting game weíd played was the disastrous Terminator: The Arcade Game, and after that Time Crisis 3 seemed like a gift from God. We never did beat the game, but the thirst for more was enough...
Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (PC)

Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2004

Iíve never played a game like Big Rigs. Itís a racing game, with trucks. You may first think that itís simply an 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker rip-off. If it tries to be, itís not. Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is honestly one of the worst games in all of history, for a variety of reasons that make themselves clear from the moment the game is started. I thought I knew what I was in for when I started up the game, because Iíd read all the reviews for it beforehand: many c...
Zone of the Enders (PlayStation 2)

Zone of the Enders review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 26, 2004

To begin this review, I'll indulge you in an anecdote, as I like subjecting my readers to them. I originally purchased this game entirely for the demo of Metal Gear Solid 2 that was bundled with it. I couldn't have cared less about the Zone of the Enders, I was more concerned with the sequel to which was arguably the best PlayStation game of all time (and as far as gameplay is concerned, MGS 2 will probably end up being arguably one of the best PS2 games of all time). Fortun...
Donkey Kong Country (Game Boy Advance)

Donkey Kong Country review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Every now and then a game comes along that you just can't put your feelings for into words. I find that those games are typically games that do nothing incredibly original, yet set a precedent for future games. I realized this just tonight as I sat down to review Donkey Kong Country (DKC) for the GBA. The game, stripped of all it's monkey shenanigans and banana collecting, is nothing more than a clone of Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. Even if it's just a clone, it's one ...
Dino Crisis 2 (PC)

Dino Crisis 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Few games make me actually interested in playing their sequel. The SimCity and Silent Hill series stand out in my mind as franchises that have always interested me, but recently after playing Dino Crisis, I found myself wanting more. While I was perusing the bargain bins at my local game store, I noticed that Dino Crisis 2 was a mere eight dollars, and I also figured that it would put my newly acquired gamepad to good use, so in a few minutes, the game was mine. I got...
Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Why does Nintendo do the things that they do? Seriously, sometimes it just really bothers me. When fans were calling for a 3D Pokemon RPG of epic scale like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Nintendo responded that they did have Pokemon games in the works for the Nintendo 64. Firstly, they had Pokemon Stadium, which took arguably the worst part of Pokemon, battling, made you do it over and over again, all for nothing, since you couldn't level up your Pokemon and transfer them b...
Dino Crisis (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Capcom claims to be the best in the business at creating survival horror games. It's true that they have made some very good survival horror games over the years in the Resident Evil franchise, however many people simply didn't care for the games or only liked a couple of them. Fearing that their franchise would grow stale and they'd lose a major money maker, Capcom set out to diversify its survival horror business. The result of the attempted diversification was Dino Crisis, a gam...
Grandia II (Dreamcast)

Grandia II review (DC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

The strong silent type, the kid on the run, the boy attempting to become a man -- all stereotypical character roles for RPG heroes not found in Game Art's Grandia II. Instead, you're treated to a foul-mouthed lead character, a talking bird, a naive Nun with a demon inside of her, a wise barbarian, and a delightful android, all trying to save the world while trying to get along with each other. Grandia II features a strong cast in a solid story, featuring a phenomenal battle ...
Super Mario World (SNES)

Super Mario World review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

As gamers, we all have a certain game that stands out among the others that we've played. There have been dozens of games that I've played through, but in only one of those I can remember how to beat every level. If I couldn't play this game for ten years, once my punishment was up, I'd still be able to pick up the controller and enjoy it, even if it isn't challenging anymore. That game is Super Mario World. A lot of people begin these reviews with a nostalgic story of their fond memories...
Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox)

Otogi: Myth of Demons review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 05, 2003

For a thousand years, the Imperial Court had ruled. But the Seal was broken, and its days of glory drew rapidly to a close. Clouds gathered overhead, and the land was engulfed in a perpetual darkness. The light of neither star nor moon could pierce the night, and a giant tempest rose from the eerie blackness to level all that stood before it. When the winds had passed, all that remained was a Court in ruins, and a city devoid of all life.
