Dragon Power (NES)

Dragon Power review (NES)

Reviewed on April 01, 2003

Dragonball was a huge series in Japan in the late 80's and early 90's. While it had not reached American shores in the same fanfare, a single game had found its way through the barrier. The game was Dragon Power. Most Americans who then found this game never really knew its roots. Years later the TV series reached American shores, but Dragon Power had died out and had become unnoticed. But the game itself was entertaining, even if the roots were unknown. It mostly resembles the more modern day G...
Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

I was expecting alot from Final Fantasy VIII when I purchased it earlier this year. Sure, FF8 was hated by many, and had recieved it's fair number of subpar reviews, but I had yet to experience a bad Final Fantasy game, and I did not think this would be the exception. As soon as I put in the game, I became very confused. The junction system boggled my mind, but I will get into that later on in the review. Basically, I could see why people disliked the game. It did not have the greatest feel at f...
Age of Empires (PC)

Age of Empires review (PC)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

Age of Empires was an interesting PC game. To conquer your enemies you needed to know exactly what you were doing, and the best method would be to set up the right amount of defence and attacking specialists, along with a useful collection of structures. Age of Empires is a true strategy game, cause to win you will need to use your wits, and hope your enemy does not.
Super Solvers: Treasure Cove (PC)

Super Solvers: Treasure Cove review (PC)

Reviewed on February 12, 2003

After Treasure Mountain, Outnumbered, Mathstorm, and Ancient Empires the Learning Company wanted to put up one last classic before vanishing from the scene. That game was Treasure Cove, which was basically the same as Treasure Mountain and Mathstorm, but underwater. This game was nearly as addictive as its predeccesor, and helped teach that same early education, although at the time I got this game it was very simple (seeing I was about 7, and the questions are made for like 5 year olds).
Avoid the Noid (PC)

Avoid the Noid review (PC)

Reviewed on February 09, 2003

Dominos wanted to advertise their pizza in more than just commercials on television, or in newspaper aids. Instead they created a classic videogame for the old PC, in which you would have to avoid the noid. A Noid was this little pink bunny like creature that would try to keep you from delivering your pizza to the 200+ story building (I have no clue how long this game actually went for). It was fun and addictive, and while it really didn't hook me into Dominos pizza I did love the game.
Contra (NES)

Contra review (NES)

Reviewed on January 30, 2003

Over time there have been multiple Contra titles. Contra is a sidescroller shooter in which you have an unlimited amount of regular ammo, plus powerups, in which to work your way by yourself, or with a partner, to defeat millions of foes. Contra is not an indepth game, but like many NES games it was just for fun, and it did it's purpose well.
Darkwing Duck (NES)

Darkwing Duck review (NES)

Reviewed on January 27, 2003

As all of you should know, Darkwing Duck was a duck who walked and talked like any human and wore a purple suit, and was supplied with various devices from his sidekick Launchpad McQuack and his neice Gosalyn. He had enemies galore, including the fearsome five, which spurred on this seven staged game in which seven of his greatest enemies lurked to stop Darkwing Duck himself.
Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen (SNES)

Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen is a game of many faces. Looking at it in retrospect it was a well made game, and did what I guess it was supposed to be. It made strategy a part of gaming, and made it crucial to being a victor. Problem is, that is only in retrospect. While playing the game I was bored beyond reasonable belief, and truly have no desire to play this game EVER again in my life. It would take me a full day to beat a single level, just cause I'd pause it for so many breaks. Ogr...
Super Solvers: Treasure Mathstorm (PC)

Super Solvers: Treasure Mathstorm review (PC)

Reviewed on January 19, 2003

Childhood stories, we visit again. The unprecedented success of Treasure Mountain lead to a very similiar game with just different subgames and a much more interesting environment. Instead of trudging up a tree filled mountain, you were trudging up snowy slopes avoiding getting hit by snowballs and collecting snowballs yourself. You had to work your way through the three levels to the top, and do so over and over against hundreds of times to beat this game. While I think this is possible the wor...
Battletoads (Game Boy)

Battletoads review (GB)

Reviewed on January 17, 2003

I remember sitting in that hotel in Toronto, with my parents and sister out on the city, sightseeing at some museum that did not interest me. I never enjoyed scenery, or for that matter vacation, but my sisters friend brought along a perfect companion for me. His Gameboy. That gray box seemed to shine like the sun, and there was one game that I played more than any other; Battletoads. Either punching warthogs with your fists, or hacking through them with your axe, or whatever other array of weap...
Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)

Metal Gear Solid review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 01, 2003

There are few games that really show themselves to be contenders for Game of the Year, the year it was created. One of these games is Metal Gear Solid five or so years ago (I am not good with dates). This is in no doubt a deserving contender, and probably the greatest game of that year. But many of you have heard about Metal Gear Solid II, but the original Metal Gear Solid was heads and toes above it's sequel (also a cool game). This is the true stealth experience. Trust me on this, you won't ge...
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 27, 2002

Zelda is one of the two focal points of Nintendo's fame, along with Super Mario Bros. Zelda: Link to the Past is at near the top of the series, only rivaled by Ocarina of Time. There is good reason why Link to the Past is at the top, for all the Zelda elements you loved in later game, is truly implement to it's finist in this game. This is what really put Zelda on the map, and made it into a legacy.
NES Open Tournament Golf (NES)

NES Open Tournament Golf review (NES)

Reviewed on December 21, 2002

My first golfing game, and truth be told it almost was my last. Looking back the game was not bad however, it just really tested my patience. It is the basis of almost all the Nintendo games after this, including Mario Golf 64, which was a quality game. This is basically just a normal golfing game, with nothing new to it, besides that Mario is the golfer.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge (NES)

Double Dragon II: The Revenge review (NES)

Reviewed on December 20, 2002

So what was their first console game you have ever played? I am probably one of the few people in the world who can say that the very first console game they owned was Double Dragon II for the NES. It came with the system that Easter morning, and it was the first game I popped in, even before that Super Mario Bros game (I think). And I loved it for so many years. The game was just fun, with the kicking, punching, and of course the cheap twirl kick. This game was entertaining, but very challengin...
Castlevania: Dracula X (SNES)

Castlevania: Dracula X review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 12, 2002

Castlevania: Dracula X is a game based on a PC Castlevania game that was a complete hit. However instead of bringing a direct port of the game to the Super Nintendo, they remade it drastically. Most say that this was a horrible thing, but I really do not know. I have never experienced the PC game, and Castlevania: Dracula X is a fun experience, and a middle classed game in this great series. It has the same feeling as the past games in the series, as you just move from point A, to point B while ...
Golden Sun (Game Boy Advance)

Golden Sun review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 09, 2002

Nintendo is a dominating company, but ever sense the Super Nintendo died out, so did their success with RPG's. Then the Gameboy Advance came out, a system very similiar in power to the Super Nintendo, and it was time to bring back the RPG's. However they didn't just port old RPG's. They created new ones. Golden Sun is such an example, and was a very succesful one. It create an immense quest and an original magic system known as Psyenergy, and little creatures known as Djinn. Immense puzzles, and...
Star Fox Adventures (GameCube)

Star Fox Adventures review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 07, 2002

To understand my disapointment in StarFox Adventures, you first have to understand my anticipation. First of all, when Dinosaur Planet was coming out on the N64 without StarFox, I was planning on picking it up. It looked like a very good game. Then when Starfox was linked to the game, I put that on the top of my list; next to SSBM. I love everything Starfox has ever done, and Rare has been the creaters of many great games. As soon as a release date was set, I preordered it. I waited those months...
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 06, 2002

Donkey Kong Country was a big hit, and a sequel was a definite money maker. Therefore Rare was on top of it, and soon enough we had another Donkey Kong Country game in the making, without the main hero. At first people were skeptical, but it still had Diddy and similiar gameplay. Donkey Kong Country 2 is a very good sequel that does the job well, and follows up a terrific game.
International Superstar Soccer 64 (Nintendo 64)

International Superstar Soccer 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on December 04, 2002

Alot of soccer games have come and gone in America, and had only a passing interest. Of course, they weren't even sold at Japan cause they have even less support for soccer there. When the N64 first came out, this was one of the games to appear very early on the system. As a soccer game it was ok. It is basically Fifa with just cheaper controls.
Breath of Fire (Game Boy Advance)

Breath of Fire review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 01, 2002

Breath of Fire is a classic RPG ported from the SNES to the newly made Gameboy Advance. They added a bit to the game, but kept the original entertainment that had always been there. I was one person who never got to experience any of the Breath of Fire series made by Capcom, before this game for GBA that I picked up, because it looked entertaining. At first this game bored me, and I put it away for multiple months, but then I went back to it, and I found myself playing it more than all of my oth...
