Mickey's Ultimate Challenge (Genesis)

Mickey's Ultimate Challenge review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 21, 2005

The Kingdom of Beanwick is in turmoil! The sky is rumbling and no one knows why. Could this be the end of the world?! While the citizens are too busy not caring, Mickey and Minnie try to get to the bottom of this by going through a number of simple-minded puzzles. Only then will they be able to face Mickey's Ultimate Challenge (what? Minnie's name is absent from the title? I smell discrimination!): another puzzle!
Ninja Gaiden (Xbox)

Ninja Gaiden review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 05, 2005

Ninja Gaiden certainly had its share of delays before being released; a lot people were eager to take a stab at this action-adventure game by Team Ninja, and they finally got a chance in March of 2004. Was it all it was cracked up to be? Well, it's definitely not one of the Xbox's greatest titles, but you'll still have fun with NG. Just don't expect anything revolutionary as you take control of Ryu Hayabusa in his conquest to decapitate everything that crosses his path.
Mega Man Anniversary Collection (Xbox)

Mega Man Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2005

C'mon, you know you wanted this, to have all these classic Mega Man titles on one disc instead of having to go through the series on multiple consoles. And it would be an even bigger nuisance if you're just now going through the trouble of buying a bunch of used and dirty cartridges. Sure, Xbox owners are getting the compilation nine months after the PS2 and GC releases, but for just twenty-dollars, Mega Man Anniversary Collection is a great bargain title.
Crazy Taxi 2 (Dreamcast)

Crazy Taxi 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on April 02, 2005

Ya know, I used to hate Crazy Taxi 2, thinking it didn't live up to the first game's standards. So with that mindset, I was ready to bash the game in this review; but then, I started playing it again. And to my surprise, it's not as bad as I'd originally thought. Hell, it's about as equal to its predecessor, give or take a few differences. That's a good thing and, unfortunately, a bad thing.
Warrior of Rome (Genesis)

Warrior of Rome review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Julius Caesar was many things: a military leader, a writer, and a dictator. He also accomplished such things as being victorious in a number of battles and conquered a lot of countries. And then there was his death where he was stabbed a bijillion times. Even long after his demise, he is still being remembered through memorabilia such as his own coins, statues, and even movies. Which brings me to this strategy game, Warrior of Rome. Based on the events in 48 B.C. where he fights through t...
The King of Fighters '95 (Game Boy)

The King of Fighters '95 review (GB)

Reviewed on February 14, 2005

It's 1995, a new year, a new contest. The host of this year's King of Fighters contest, Rugal, has sent out invitations, to last year's participants as well as newcomers, in hopes that they'll all join in the upcoming tournament. All seems well on the surface, but the contest is actually just a ploy by Rugal to capture, brainwash, and turn the best fighters into his own personal soldiers. Give this man the person of the year award, ladies and gentlemen!
The Getaway: High Speed II (Game Boy)

The Getaway: High Speed II review (GB)

Reviewed on February 02, 2005

I like pinball, I think it's an enjoyable genre. Stay on the board for as long as possible and rake up as many points as you can. Yeah, I consider that entertaining. Now, pinball as a video game is a different story; trying to replicate the real deal into the digital form has been hit or miss. Sometimes developers nail it, while other times they fail miserably. Unfortunately, The Getaway: High Speed II falls into the latter category. Add to the fact that someone thought it was a brilliant...
OutRun2 (Xbox)

OutRun2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 25, 2005

Hey, remember OutRun Europa, Battle OutRun, and *gulps* OutRun 2019?......... Well, AM2 seems to have forgotten them. Or at least they want to forget, which is made more obvious with the latest sequel's title, OutRun2. And who would blame them? I mean, the quality of those previous games ranged from mediocre to just plain sucking balls. So, of course, it's no surprise they want the game to be the followup to the original classic, OutRun. And trust me, af...
Evolution 2: Far Off Promise (Dreamcast)

Evolution 2: Far Off Promise review (DC)

Reviewed on December 24, 2004

Sometimes, you just need to take a break from playing all those "complicated" RPGs. Ya know, the ones that span over fifty or sixty hours, and have battle systems that take at least an hour or two to get used to? Yeah, those RPGs. You need to escape from them every once and awhile and play something simple, something short, and something fun. Evolution 2: Far Off Promise could've been one of those games: it's short, it's simple...... but it's not fun. Which is very unfortunate, because it...
Qix (Game Boy)

Qix review (GB)

Reviewed on December 03, 2004

You're running down a narrow dark corridor, being chased by an ominous sparkling orb that just doubled in size. There's no worries, though, as you're able to outrun it, due to its slow pace. So every thing's fine....at the moment. Suddenly, another orb approaches you from up ahead. Now surrounded, they both take their time, savoring the victorious moment before they evaporate you. At this point, you're running out of options, and attacking them is out of the question, since they're pretty much ...
Soviet Strike (Saturn)

Soviet Strike review (SAT)

Reviewed on November 04, 2004

There's a crisis going on in Eastern Europe. Shadowman, an ex-KGB general, is in the midst of raging war against Russia, and he's got enough firepower to obliterate the entire country. That's where STRIKE comes in. Consisting of a masterful tactician, a highly skilled hacker, a news reporter that covers up STRIKE's tracks, and a number of ace copilots, their job is to stop potential wars before they even begin. And they need to stop Shadowman's cause while it's still just a rumor. Each of these ...
Hyper 3-D Pinball (Saturn)

Hyper 3-D Pinball review (SAT)

Reviewed on October 14, 2004

What? You didn't want to buy a digital pinball game? That's ok, it's understandable. You bought a Sega Saturn to play games like Virtua Fighter 2, Sega Rally, Guardian Heroes, NiGHTS, Panzer Dragoon Zwei, and so on. You didn't want to waste your time and money on a pinball simulation, especially one with a corny name. No, really, I understand. I didn't like Hyper 3-D Pinball myself, at first. At the time, I wanted to play something "better", instead, so ...
Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox)

Panzer Dragoon Orta review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

This game is amazing. No, really, it is. Panzer Dragoon Orta is one of the most impressive things I've experienced in quite some time.....graphically. It's a shame that the gameplay itself isn't as spectacular, because it could have been one of the best games in the Xbox's library. There are a couple of annoyances and problems that keep the main game from becoming very enjoyable. Thankfully, all hope is not completely lost. The slew of extras crammed into Pandora's Box rescues PDO ...
Gunbird 2 (Dreamcast)

Gunbird 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

Just by mentioning the name Psikyo, no doubt, you'll get a mixed reaction from gamers. Some will moan and groan about how hard their shmups are, being overwhelmed by the difficulty and having to face the usual on screen madness (entire screen being filled with bullets). While others will jump for joy at the challenge, being up to the task of taking on the insanity and attempting to dodge every bullet that rains down on them. Well, Gunbird 2 is no different. It offers you the same type of ...
Castlevania: Dracula X (SNES)

Castlevania: Dracula X review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

Okay, I have never played Dracula X: Rondo of Blood and probably never will. And even though others have said that the SNES version is a disappointment compared to the original, from what I played of CV Dracula X, it appears to be a very solid and fun ''remake'' for the SNES. Much, MUCH better then that other CV game for the SNES....
Shinobi (Sega Master System)

Shinobi review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

Shinobi. It's one of Sega's oldest running (and surviving) franchises that has spawned many sequels (Revenge of Shinobi, Shinobi III), spin offs (Shadow Dancer 1&2, PS2 Shinobi, NightShade), and even a parody (Alex Kidd in Shinobi World). So, after all these years, is the original still worth playing? HELL YEAH! What's wrong with you?! A fun and challenging game that will test your timing, reflexes, and even patience, Shinobi ...
Scramble Spirits (Sega Master System)

Scramble Spirits review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

I wanted to play this game for the longest time. Years ago, I bought this game after my SMS was gone, and it was pretty hard to find a new Master System back then. Recently, last year, I finally had the chance to try this game out. From the looks of the screen shots on the back of the box, I assumed it would play similar to Bomber Raid, so I had high hopes for this game. Boy, was I sorely disappointed once I played it. Although, there are many similarities to Bomber Raid<...
The Ninja (Sega Master System)

The Ninja review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

When I played this game for the first time, I thought it was too hard and unfair at times. I kept playing up till the river bank level where I lost and just gave up on the game, considered it as bad as My Hero, and started playing another game. But recently, I started playing the game again, took the time to learn what to do, figure out what certain things do what, memorize enemies patterns, and I then realized it wasn't such a bad game after all. But it still can be hard as hell sometime...
Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi (Sega Master System)

Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

Wow, deja vu. I was in this exact same situation when playing through The Ninja, I hated it at first, and thought the game was too unforgiving. I could get up to the end of the first stage, but then lose all my lives when I got to fighting the boss. After a couple tries, I just gave up and never attempted to beat the game. But recently, I started playing the game again and found out it wasn't so bad once I found out more stuff I can pull off with Joe. The game is still quite hard though, ...
Altered Beast (Sega Master System)

Altered Beast review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 11, 2004

Well, I'm pretty sure most of us have played the Genesis version of Altered Beast. Who can forget such moments like the beginning when the giant transparent floating guy with a crystal ball shouts out ''WISE FOM UR GWAVE''? Or when some drunken dude shouts ''POWER UP'' when you get a Spirit Ball and slowly turn into a manly man? Well sadly, most of what made that game so great is lost in this 8 bit translation, turning an already average game into a crapfest.
