WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos (PC)

WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos review (PC)

Reviewed on July 24, 2003

Few companies produce games like Blizzard. Years of development, endless play testing and character balancing, and unbelievable hype in PC gaming circles are all signs of a Blizzard game. They have yet to disappoint - the triple headed monster of Starcraft, Diablo, and Warcraft has dominated the sales chart. The long development phase ensures that every Blizzard product is polished right from the start.

The Sims review (PC)

Reviewed on June 24, 2003

Maxis has had a formula in place for developing video and computer games for the past decade. It has proven to be phenomenally successful. Their method is as follows: 1) Pick some aspect of life. 2) Craft a game around this aspect. 3) Slap the term “Sim” somewhere in the title. This formula has obviously worked, judging from all the Sim games on the market: SimCity, SimEarth, SimIsland, even SimFarm.
Super Metroid (SNES)

Super Metroid review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 05, 2003

It is always amazing to me how incredibly popular the Metroid series has become. The original was a deep and expansive game, but it didn’t have the personality of Super Mario Brothers or the mega-hit stamp of other games. The first sequel was relegated to the Game Boy, land of puzzlers, yet became an action game that survived and thrived. Continual growth was a calling card for both: they lurked and lurked on the Nintendo Power charts for years after their original release. Whe...
Altered Beast (Genesis)

Altered Beast review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 04, 2003

Timing is everything in the business of video games. A simple difference of a year can radically change everything. Just ask Sega; they’ve been on both ends of the stick with all of their system releases. The Genesis capitalized on a public that was fed up with constant delays to the Super Nintendo. However, the Saturn and Dreamcast both showed signs of being ill-conceived consoles that were not powerful enough to satisfy developers.
Legend of Mana (PlayStation)

Legend of Mana review (PSX)

Reviewed on May 30, 2003

Non-linear gameplay is an odd subject. Games such as Final Fantasy X are routinely villainified for their adherence to linear gameplay. The masses shout, “Give us freedom!” Yet games which do feature non-linear gameplay do not sell as many copies, the genre of MMRPGs excluded.

Mega Man 6 (NES)

Mega Man 6 review (NES)

Reviewed on February 27, 2003

At which point does innovation become necessary? When a long running series continues to rehash the same format, at which point should casual fans revolt over repetitiveness? This is a question that has plagued the Mega Man series. It is obviously the most flagrant offender; it dwarves even Tomb Raider in terms of games featuring remarkably similar gameplay with little innovation. When we are talking about the NES, it is clear that Mega Man 6 follows the Capcom formula –...

Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts (SNES)

Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 23, 2003

You know, you might get the impression that I’m not a feminist’s best friend from the games I commonly review. Nothing could be further from the truth; after all, it’s obvious a man like me knows exactly what a lady wants. Still, with the common female flesh orgies I review, I think it’s about time I give a little bit back. Ladies, just for you, I’m going to review Super Ghouls and Ghost, which features the sexiest, shadiest, Britishiest man ever seen in a video game.
Progress Quest (PC)

Progress Quest review (PC)

Reviewed on February 08, 2003

Progress Quest is funny as hell. It’s a mockup of role playing games and their fans, and it succeeds wonderfully at this point. You download it, and run it, and that’s it. It sits on your taskbar and goes through a role playing game for you while you do, well, whatever else you might want to do. A text window describes what you’re doing, like slaying a pillow monster with a dirty halibut, but no interaction is needed on your part past entering in your name and picking from some farcic...
Bad News Baseball (NES)

Bad News Baseball review (NES)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Often times, things don’t make much sense at all. For instance, there’s a popular expression that says, “A penny for your thoughts.” But there’s also a saying that says you have to “put your two cents in.” With these two statements, it’s obvious that someone out there is making a penny. But who is it? We have no idea, we’re just left to assume that these phrases are simple sayings that apply to us and not some vast greater idea.

Kana Little Sister review (PC)

Reviewed on January 19, 2003

One of the biggest knocks against video games is that they do not provide any redeeming social value. This point can hardly be argued; where is the social value and moral development in games such as Grand Theft Auto III? When was the last time you played a game with a mature storyline more suited for a movie house then a video game? The surreal plot of Metal Gear Solid 2 might jump to mind, but that correlates little to the real world. Instead, the stereotype of video games wi...

Kingdom Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 16, 2003

Disney and Square. It seems like a video and mainstream match made in heaven. One is a giant in the movie industry, famous for their children’s movies that have entertained generations, monopolistic policies that endanger the lives of poor workers in third class countries, and for introducing some of the most memorable characters ever by way of world class animation. The other is a giant in the video game industry, famous for bringing roleplaying games, formerly a pursuit of just the hardcore...

Suikoden III review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 08, 2003

Few things stir feelings more then the concept of nationalism. The idea that certain ethnic and religious groups are nationally entitled to a vague political boundary based on centuries old barriers is a constant factor in wars in the present day world. No country is immune; the United States prides itself on being the “best” in the world, yet the mere thought that another nation can have a bigger arsenal of weaponry then causes us to hurriedly develop weapons of mass destruction that would gi...
Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 15, 2002

Samus Aran has really big guns. In all senses of the word. That could perhaps explain her immense popularity among both sexes. A female role model due to her strong yet beautiful personality, and a knockout sex demon that shoots stuff keeps all gamers happy. Both the original Metroid for the NES and Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo capitalize on this fact. Even on the Game Boy, Samus remains a major Nintendo mascot. Lurking underneath layers of cybernetic armor is a softl...

Raptor review (PC)

Reviewed on August 28, 2002

Your plane lurches to the right, out of the volley fire of the incoming warship. Missile after missile pummels the body of the warship, imbedding it deeply with spikes before exploding. This barely chips the paint of the massive death cruiser, and it returns fire with an arsenal that would make George ''Dubyah'' Bush envious.
Baseball Mogul 2003 (PC)

Baseball Mogul 2003 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 30, 2002

Ever watched a baseball game on television? It's quite a boring experience. A seven million dollar pitcher steps on the mound, shakes off a sign, shakes off another, before finally deciding on the good old number one. He's just about ready to windup when the batter decides to call time. Usually to scratch himself in a place that the television cameras can't film. Repeat this for four hours and you have the average baseball game.

Meet Roger Bacon. An elegant English gentleman, he enjoys tea, crumpets, and cricket. Oh yes, he also enjoys slaying priests who meddle with his plans for world domination. Above all, he is a gentleman though.
Grandia II (Dreamcast)

Grandia II review (DC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Grandia 2 benefits strongly from the lack of competition on the Dreamcast. It's just that simple. If Grandia 2 was on the Playstation, it would be dwarved by other, better role playing games.
