Primal Rage (Genesis)

Primal Rage review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 06, 2007

Welcome to Planet Urth! No, this post-apocalyptic wasteland is not the Earth that you used to know and love. Not too long ago, a giant meteorite crashed into our world, casting ruin and destruction across the globe. The impact shook the planet to its core, triggering severe earthquakes, tsunamis, and even (gasp!) global warming. Between the searing heat of the explosion and the radical shift of the continents, billions of people were killed in the catastrophe. Indeed, mankind as we know it has g...

NetHack (PC)

NetHack review (PC)

Reviewed on May 06, 2007

There’s a saying in the NetHack community that the DevTeam thinks of everything, and it’s true. The game is so deep and fully realized that it’s impossible to put down. Once you’re hooked, you keep coming back no matter how frustrating it gets sometimes, because NetHack isn’t just a game. It’s an addiction.

Cybernator (SNES)

Cybernator review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

Call it Assault Suits Valken, call it Target Earth 2, call it Cybernator. There are lots of things you can call this confusingly and frequently redubbed mech romp, but the sane among us who've played it will settle for awesome! On a system whose unsung sidescrollers shine the brightest over shallow Contra III and pushover Castlevania IV, Valken is at the very head of the pack, a system seller that never sold a system and a buried treasure that's o...

Pokémon Pearl Version (DS)

Pokémon Pearl Version review (DS)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

As the sun rises over the Sinnoh Region, children are leaving their homes by the hundreds. They aren’t attending school, nor are they running away from tough family situations and domestic abuse. In fact, their parents are waving goodbye from their doorsteps, secretly wiping tears from their eyes and hiding their emotions. They know that they may never see their sons or daughters for months, years, or ever again. Yet they allow the children roam free across the land, exploring every dank cave, w...

Wii Play (Wii)

Wii Play review (WII)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

All things considered, Wii Sports is one of Nintendo’s best ideas in terms of promoting their new console. The game features a handful of games that anyone, regardless of their age and endurance, can actively play and enjoy. By using the WiiMote controller in place of actual sports equipment, you get to experience the games without the hassle of actually leaving your home. The best part about this little ensemble is that it comes free with the Wii; no sane consumer should have to shell ou...

Streets of Rage Remake review (PC)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

Being a cop has to be the most boring job on Earth. As an avid videogame player, I have to come to this conclusion, as I can think of no game that portrays this career with even the remotest sense of accuracy. I mean, c’mon. Firefighters got Roscoe McQueen. Even postmen got Cliffie, the Beer-Drinking Postman. But every cop game either has you be a Ninja Cop, cop who has a super-tricked out spor...

Resident Evil Gaiden review (GBC)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

Ask any video game fan on the internet what he (or she, if you aren't of the belief that women do not exist on the internet) thinks about the Resident Evil series. Every answer is the same: The first game was kinda-okay-ish. The second game was the greatest thing on the Playstation until Capcom saw fit to re-release the game a mind-boggling six

Ganryu (NeoGeo)

Ganryu review (NEO)

Reviewed on May 05, 2007

The infuriatingly generic Ganryu manages to disappoint on every level. At its very core, one can only assume it is meant to be a nostalgic throwback to the 2D side scrolling ninja slice-a-thons of yore. Despite being made in 1999, it plays even worse than Shinobi did over a decade earlier, not to mention there are no bizarre 14-dimensional alien bosses or hi-tech tomfoolery, no relentless waves of enemies to fend off. Every aspect is stripped down to a uniform plain of vani...

JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox)

JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 29, 2007

Jet Set Radio Future is an easy game to like even if it's an impossible game to love. It's dripping with the sort of self-consciously hip style that only Sega could pull off, and were it human, I'd expect nothing less out of it than oldschool checkerboard Vans and a garish blazer to go with 'em. Funky, pseudo-cartoony graphics lend developer Smilebit's graffiti/skating hybrid an impeccable sense of popping, colorful style, with areas like nightlife hub Benten Street brought to life by its orient...

Mega Man X Collection (GameCube)

Mega Man X Collection review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 29, 2007

As X walks along a deserted city street, he kicks up dust and moves around the rubble. There aren’t any other people around. They either died in yesterday’s massacre or fled underground. It’s not like running will help mankind, though; now that most of the robots around the world have gone berserk, there’s little chance that society will recover anytime soon. In the meantime, the city continues to crumble into dust. The arched overpass has been ripped to pieces, leaving chunks of gray debris str...

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 29, 2007

When thinking about Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, one mundane locale sticks in my head. It’s a simple airship port nestled on the side of a mountain. We view it from such a distance that the gnarled rock inhabits most of the left side screen. Gigantic faces are haphazardly sculpted into ledges, their eyes closed against punishing winds. Purple lightning flashes periodically, followed by distant thunder claps. Billowing clouds surround and speed by the cliff, close e...

Deus Ex: Invisible War is made by Ion Storm and published by Eidos. It's the sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. Invisible War, like the original game, is a first-person RPG/FPS.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves (Wii)

WarioWare: Smooth Moves review (WII)

Reviewed on April 27, 2007

Videogames, when you get right down to it, are all essentially the same. There is movement, and conflict, towards an end. The methods of movement may alter, the conflicts may be disguised, and the ends are many and varied. However, even with all these variables, there is ultimately little difference between Pong and World of Warcraft. The two games are merely at opposite ends of the same definition.

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

Reviewed on April 24, 2007

The 2005 release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney captured hearts with sensational mysteries, humorous characters, and witty dialogue. In this second installment of the graphic adventure, subtitled Justice for All, Capcom’s most famous lawyer returns for more of the same. The sequel presents a quartet of tragic cases that will put your analytical ability to a moderate test. More important, it continues to expand on the characters so carefully developed in the first game. The fam...

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

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

Reviewed on April 24, 2007

The Legend of Zelda series has always been a staple among the gaming community and is an essential franchise of Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past has achieved a particularly vast fan following of the series on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It has been raised from mere 16-bit adventure to near cult status. The success and endearment of A Link to the Past is perhaps due to the superior logistics of the Super NES when compared to the original NES. The graphical aspec...

Virtua Tennis 3 (Xbox 360)

Virtua Tennis 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on April 22, 2007

The first time I played Virtua Tennis 3, I wasn't that thrilled with it. I avoided the World Tour mode and went straight to an exhibition match to get a good feel of the gameplay. Well, after about three or four matches... I was bored, and I was just about to give up on the game at that point. And it's not due to it being a tennis game, where you basically hit a ball back and forth, because I enjoyed Table Tennis. It's just... you can pretty much figure out how most of your opponents play...
