Resistance: Fall of Man (PlayStation 3)

Resistance: Fall of Man review (PS3)

Reviewed on September 11, 2007

Dotting beds of marram grass are bullet-riddled sandbags and barbwire thickets, but look closer at the sandy, havoc-stricken dunes comprising the European countryside. A seesaw extends out in the overgrown brush, the limp corpse of a fellow soldier keeping it suspended ominously in the air. Another officer hangs drooped over a rusted swing set, gently rocking with the breeze. Across the eerily silent expanse stands a cold, steel slide, yet another sullen reminder of carefree times not so lon...

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GameCube)

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes review (GCN)

Reviewed on September 10, 2007

In 2002, then-unknown developer, Retro Studios, completed the first 3D Metroid game, Metroid Prime. Despite rampant skepticism on the part of critics and series fans alike, Retro succeeded in delivering what was heralded by many as one of the finest entries in the Metroid series and one of the best games of all time. Prime was certainly a tough act to follow, but Retro’s sequel, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, makes it clear that the quality of the first game was n...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All review (DS)

Reviewed on September 10, 2007

For starters, there is no need to bother with this one until you've played and finished Ace Attorney. The story picks up from the events of the past game, with just enough flashbacks to be able to play it separately if you must, but you'll get more out of it knowing what led up to the events here. The gameplay is also virtually identical, and there a recurring characters and locations to boot. Essentially, Justice for All feels like 4 new cases in the same game.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on September 10, 2007

It is completely linear, it involves a lot of reading, it has an annoying bit here and there where you're wondering how to convince the story to move along, and once you've finished it, any replay will be precisely the same...and I'm still absolutely in love with it.

Wii Sports (Wii)

Wii Sports review (WII)

Reviewed on September 08, 2007

Nintendo’s number one priority with the Wii has been to make gaming accessible to the masses, including those who have never played a game before. To accomplish that, Nintendo introduced Wii Sports, a bundle of very simplistic games, as a pack-in with the system. While the game is most certainly accessible, it is also a meritless compilation of dreck.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PlayStation 2)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 08, 2007

A Grand Theft Auto game is self-explanatory really, a large (or in this case, massive) free-roaming world, run around killing pedestrians and gangster’s whilst slaloming with the police while completing missions, and stirring up massive controversy in the media at the same time. The original GTA game was released in 1997 and appeared most notably on PC and PSone, in which you played in a birds-eye perspective. 2001’s GTA3 was the first GTA on PlayStation 2 and gave us some real 3D action which c...

Super Castlevania IV (SNES)

Super Castlevania IV review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 07, 2007

If you’ve been playing games for any length of time, you’ve probably heard of the Castlevania series. If you haven’t… well, that’s absolutely tragic, because aside from being one of the most memorable franchises from the NES era, Castlevania is still one of the most enjoyable series around today. Thanks to the Wii’s Virtual Console, it’s possible for people who missed the older, pre-SOTN games to finally experience those classics, and there are few entries more worthy than...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife (DS)

Trauma Center: Under the Knife review (DS)

Reviewed on September 07, 2007

My first patient in Trauma Center: Under the Knife was named Kevin Turk. He was riding a motorcycle when he suddenly lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a glass door. The accident left him with lacerations in his upper right arm, and they were starting to hemorrhage. The man also had shards of glass lodged deep within his right shoulder. This procedure would require me to remove all foreign objects from his skin, and then suture up any wounds.

Bujingai: The Forsaken City (PlayStation 2)

Bujingai: The Forsaken City review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 07, 2007

Do you remember the Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, and how Vin Diesel did the motion detecting, voice over, and modeling for the main character? Well Bujingai uses the same concept, except instead of Vin Diesel, it uses a Japanese musician named Gackt that you've probably never heard of. As odd as this sounds, the end result was not the failure that you'd might expect. Bujingai isn't a masterpiece by any stretch, but it's fun. It combines hack and slash gameplay with some cool p...

Luminous Arc (DS)

Luminous Arc review (DS)

Reviewed on September 04, 2007

As an institution that stands for goodness and light, the Luminous Church is quick to punish anyone and everyone. In the very first scene, an exalted Cardinal, second in Luminous command, seeks to imprison two monks innocently expressing doubts about the Church leadership. It will shut down trade and travel throughout civilization for its own purposes, imposing on the insignificant commoners. And above all, it hunts down and condemns Witches, the ultimate enemies of God. (Thus the capital ‘W...

Pretty Soldier Wars A.D. 2048 (PC)

Pretty Soldier Wars A.D. 2048 review (PC)

Reviewed on September 04, 2007

Certainly, efficiency is a key attribute of an effective soldier. For any member of the A.S.S.P., a unit of specially engineered female biosoldiers, it's an inherent quality. After only a few battles, and even fewer conversations, she won't hesitate to ask her superior officer out on a date. After a little walk to the park or a quick dinner, she'll jump right into bed. And after about two seconds, she’ll be fully dressed and focused on the next mission. Efficient indeed.

Bujingai: The Forsaken City (PlayStation 2)

Bujingai: The Forsaken City review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 04, 2007

Bujingai is the perfect example of the pros and cons of going to your favourite game store, skipping past the shelves full of God of War and Devil May Cry (also beat’em-ups) and heading straight for the bottom of the bargain bin, that one with the games based on local TV shows and other productions you’ve never heard of. As it so often happens with low-budget games, Bujingai is highly irregular: it has several flaws, but also certain points of interest.

Transformers: Autobots (DS)

Transformers: Autobots review (DS)

Reviewed on September 03, 2007

Transformers: The Movie is a seriously kick-arse film about a hyperactive kid helping out some colossal Japanese robots to cause one billion dollars worth of damage to the city, and in doing so, he also manages to score a goddess of a hot chick. Transformers: Autobots, one half of the official DS games of the movie, does away with all of that nonsense, and instead leaves us stuck in a Grand Theft Auto inspired sandbox... for better or for worse? We'll soon find out.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit (Game Boy Advance)

Mario Kart: Super Circuit review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 02, 2007

Mario Kart stand’s out as one of Nintendo’s ever-appearing franchises on all their 16-bit consoles onwards and all share the basic principle of being a fun, entertaining racer that anyone can pick up and play and compete against each other regardless of ability. Super Mario Kart started the franchise off on the SNES and was technically impressive s well as some top gameplay, while Mario Kart 64 bought the series into full 3D and while successful, was too easy for some.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 02, 2007

Your arm has been torn open. It could be worse; at least the wound wasn’t on your wrist. Of course, that doesn’t make the raw meat that was once your bicep feel any better. Somewhere in the lower recesses of your mind, you understand that you’ve gone into shock. You’re vaguely aware of the burning pain pulsing from your ruined limb, and of the blood dripping – no, pouring - out of you. Any second now, the monsters will swoop in and devour you like a flesh-flavored candy bar. As their vaca...

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (PlayStation 2)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 01, 2007

The movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a deeply moving epic drama in the form of a Chinese wuxia opera that happened to have memorable fight and action sequences. The PS2 game, on the other hand, is a pretty straight beat’em-up that is neither moving, epic or dramatic, offering lots of action and fight sequences but hardly memorable.

Bratz review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 30, 2007

You see a woman. Her platform shoes are bigger than her head. Her waist –perfectly visible thanks to clothes so small that they’re barely there- is inhumanly thin, to the point where it seems impossible that it could hold a person’s innards inside. Her lips show evident signs of having been stung by a particularly ferocious bee, and are painted with buckets of lipgloss that contribute to give them a stronger inflatable plastic look. Above those lips, two humid eyes inattentively look back at you...

GunValkyrie (Xbox)

GunValkyrie review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 30, 2007

Poor GunValkyrie didn't stand a chance. From Sega came a tough but gorgeous game where a hot chick flies around with a jetpack and blows shit up... alright, on a system whose raisons d'être were Halo and Dead or Alive, that was probably a good move. But development team Smilebit stupidly—wonderfully, valiantly, but really quite stupidly just the same—refused to cater to any modern gamer's taste, and predictably, gamers hated their game because of it. There's no instant satisfaction to be found h...
