Gekido (PlayStation)

Gekido review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

1989 was my favourite year in arcade games. Golden Axe arrived, Final Fight arrived, and just crossing the threshold of an arcade gave me a massive anticipatory rush. My friends and I were living through the glorious rise of the Side-Scrolling Beat-Em-Up, and cooperatively smashing a path through thousands of bad dudes in games with untouchable levels of spectacle, hilarity and gratuitousness (I JUST DESTROYED A PHONEBOOTH BY THROWING EIGHT PEOPLE INTO IT AT ONCE!) was the greatest thing ...

Dino Crisis (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Regina slumped against the medical room door. Relief that the horrors were locked out, at least for a moment, settled upon her with the same slow weight as the aqua neon glare. Dragging herself across the room, she was only now becoming aware of the pain from her wound as the adrenaline ebbed. Crimson splashes fell steadily onto the gleaming white tiles as she moved from the door to the bed.

I have grown to love Deathtrap Dungeon.
Darkstalkers (PlayStation)

Darkstalkers review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Though being highly aware of them all, I'm amazed to say I'd never actually played one of Capcom's cartoon beat-em-ups prior to this one, either at the arcade or on a console. When I saw this game going cheap second-hand, and that it had a mob of supernatural/mythical creatures (vampire, catwoman, a Frankenstein type, werewolf, succubus) scrapping in colourful 2D Street Fighter style, I thought it looked pretty cool and it was time to have a go.
Danger Girl (PlayStation)

Danger Girl review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

When Danger Girl sashayed past me offering not one but three hyper-gynoidal heroines to play, and hot lashings of stealthy action-adventure, I groaned and almost fell over at the prospect.
D (PlayStation)

D review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

One night in a downtown LA hospital under the gaze of a full moon, Doctor Richter Harris apparently goes insane and, without warning, carries out a mass murder of staff and patients.
Bust A Groove (PlayStation)

Bust A Groove review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

After an ongoing farce in which I kept trying to buy 'Bust a MOVE' second-hand, and kept failing miserably (right disc, wrong cover... right cover, wrong disc... you name it, it happened), I unexpectedly found myself the confused owner of the famous but untried-by-me Bust A GROOVE. And before I knew it, I was
Bushido Blade (PlayStation)

Bushido Blade review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Bushido Blade (BB) is Squaresoft's infamous samurai swordfighting game of one-hit kills. There are no health gauges, combo counters or special powers here. BB follows the impulse of realism: One properly executed stab to the head or torso will end life immediately. Blows to limbs maim those limbs, legs can be rendered useless so that your opponent is reduced to crawling or just lying on the ground, and the whole thing is confidently presented in status-free glory. There's no text, no mess...

For centuries, man dreamt of flight.
Akuji the Heartless (PlayStation)

Akuji the Heartless review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

If you were about to be married but suddenly had your heart ripped out in a voodoo ambush by your treacherous brother, who then proceeded to toss your soul into Hades, you'd be more than a little pissed off too. This happened to Akuji the Heartless, and provides the background story for the game. As Akuji, it's your goal to hack your way out of hell, achieving some weird kind of redemption en route, and to take revenge upon the people who cast you down. (See, they don't just call him 'the heartl...
40 Winks (PlayStation)

40 Winks review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

40 Winks aims its cute and dreamy self directly at one of the toughest arenas of gaming to crack - the nebulous zone in which young children and almost-teens swim together. Perhaps at the same time it hopes (in vain?) that the Mario-like powers of 'universal appeal' will embrace and hold onto the rest of the audience. The game is a wonder-filled 3D fantasy platformer in which a doe-eyed young sister and brother pair named Ruff and Tumble enter the worlds of their dreams to rescue the rema...
Master of Darkness (Sega Master System)

Master of Darkness review (SMS)

Reviewed on February 06, 2004

In the early 1990s some very imaginative game designer noticed that both the fictional Dracula story and the real-life case of Jack the Ripper took place in the 1880s and 90s, and decided to bring the two together. AT LAST!
Heroes of the Lance (Sega Master System)

Heroes of the Lance review (SMS)

Reviewed on February 06, 2004

If you wish to study the phenomenon of 'binary gamer polarisation', one of the classic case studies is the 1988 cross-platform fantasy adventure Heroes of the Lance.

Paperboy (Sega Master System)

Paperboy review (SMS)

Reviewed on February 06, 2004

Many Sunny Sundays in my adolescent years were spent at friends' houses after a sleepover just playing games on the Commodore 64 all morning. (Don't worry, I'll get to the MasterSystem in a moment.) You could wag your finger at me and say my friends and I should have been outside enjoying this sun, but such days often reminded us too strongly of the chart-busting Rick Astley song 'Never Gonna Give You Up'. We invented the term 'Sunny Sunday' to describe the smile-plastered lollypop-coloured exis...
