Mystic Ark (SNES)

Mystic Ark review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 27, 2005

In the early nineties, Enix released an oddly named game known as Elnard to an otherwise unsuspecting Japanese public. A number of months later, the stateside release hit, and due to the fact that Elnard was a damn stupid name, the American release was renamed The 7th Saga. It made a mild splash in the gaming world, but fell into semi-obscurity under the thresholds of other, better games released at the time. Then, 1995 rolled around, seeing the release of memorable titles s...

Fantasy Zone (Sega Master System)

Fantasy Zone review (SMS)

Reviewed on March 25, 2005

A couple of nights ago, I was playing Fantasy Zone on the Master System. I leaned back in my gaming chair while in the item shop and found myself tapping my feet and drumming my fingers to the catchy music. Observing my actions, my wife asked what I was doing. So, I let her have a listen, she agreed the music was catchy and we did a little dance. It was a great, whimsical moment that likely will bring a smile to my face for many days to come.

Soul Blazer (SNES)

Soul Blazer review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

Once upon a time in a land far away, there lived a king. Formerly a kind and generous man, the monarch made a fateful decision to summon a powerful demon. When the foul Deathtoll appeared, the king traded the souls of every living being under his jurisdiction for one gold coin each. That money would wind up unclaimed, though, as the kingís soul was lost, too (he should have read the fine print). Just like that, Deathtoll erased all life from the world and turned it into a ruined and desolate pla...

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (Xbox)

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

After months of painful delays, Street Fighter Anniversary Collection finally arrived on the Xbox, and while it isn't perfect, itís a welcome addition to my gaming library. This amalgamation of the Street Fighter II-series games (World Warriors, Champion Edition, Turbo [Special Champion Edition on the Genesis], Super, and Super Turbo) in the form of Street Fighter II Hyper, combined with the final installment of the Street Fighter III series (Third Strike) crams a lot of fighting onto one disc,...

RoboCop (NES)

RoboCop review (NES)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

Robots are undeniably cool. Everybody knows police officers are totally awesome. It was only a matter of time until somebody decided to bring the two together. When it didÖ they called him Robocop. And he represented something; namely, the courage to keep going despite what you lost, and the ability to kick lots of ass. The idealism of it all made for a great movie, and this game that comes from it a fairly enjoyable experience as well.

Star Fox Assault (GameCube)

Star Fox Assault review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 23, 2005

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic Star Fox games, that game being Star Fox Assault. While it does have its faults, overall it keeps itself true to many of the key aspects of the frist two Star Fox game; that aspect b...

Dino Crisis 2 (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

To say I was impressed with the original Dino Crisis would be an extreme understatement, and would probably be a travesty to my feelings of the game. I enjoyed playing the original immensely, despite the fact I found it to have some flaws. Of course, I am one of those people that can find flaws in any game, but that does not take away from the fun factor I experience with these games, at all. I definitely enjoyed playing the original Dino Crisis, because it took everything I liked about Resident...

Legendary Wings (NES)

Legendary Wings review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

After reviewing Activision Classics, I realized just how many damn shooter ripoffs there were out there to choose from. Almost every Atari game was apparently a ripoff of Space Invaders. And there were a lot of vertical scrolling, and side scrolling shooters to choose from on the NES, as well. Legendary Wings was yet another example of this, but like most of the other ones, it's still a lot of fun to play. I've always been a big fan of the genre, and feel Legendary Wings brings a lot to the tabl...

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

Released in 1986, Metroid chronicles the adventure of a young bounty hunter named Samus Aran, whose mission is simple: to exterminate the remaining Metroids and bring peace to the galaxy. It's a pretty original storyline for its day, and it blends in well with the space-like atmosphere of the game. The storyline was even used as the focal point of later efforts, so more points to it there for actually starting a continual storyline.

Snow Bros. (Genesis)

Snow Bros. review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

Snow Bros.; Possibly one of the most bizarre yet unoriginal arcade style games to be ported from the arcade to the Mega Drive. Donít get me wrong though just because this game isnít original doesnít mean that it is a travesty! In fact Snow Bros is possibly one the most addictive two player games on the Mega Drive, due to its insane length and extremely durable gameplay.

NARC review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

As lowly officers working in narcotics, youíre given the objective to take a stroll through the shady part of town and basically eliminate any scumbags that happen to be residing there. The task wonít be easy; youíll have to confront dealers, addicts, killer clowns, and more as you struggle to make the streets a safer place for everyday citizens. Youíre also likely going to be outnumbered, and your only allies will be your machine gun, rocket launcher, and brightly-colored riot gear.

Karaoke Revolution Vol. 2 (PlayStation 2)

Karaoke Revolution Vol. 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 21, 2005

After several repeated plays of the various songs in the original Karaoke Revolution, it still hardly loses any of its charm. Practically a timeless classic, that one was. Still, deep down in our heart of hearts, the lot of us yearned for more. More songs to sing, and more ways to show that we got soul.

Two thousand years later, a demonic man named Dante unearths clues that reveal an attempt by the Devil to resurrect his rule. Somewhere within Dante lies ancient demon blood, the key to defeating the dark realm. The fate of the world now rests in Dante's hands. If he succeeds, the Devil May Cry.

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land review (GB)

Reviewed on March 20, 2005

Super Mario Land was one of the launch titles for the Gameboy and alongside Tetris, it may be the best game that the system has to offer. It took the basic Mario formula from the original NES classic, Super Mario Bros and added a few new ingredients to make it a little different from its bigger brother. It plucked our heroic plumber from the Mushroom kingdom, his usual base for his adventures and dropped him in the Sasaraland. Here, our chubby plumber was out to rescue Princess Daisy (What h...

Rockman & Forte review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 19, 2005

RockMan and Forte is sort of an anomaly in the vast field of Mega Man games. Released in 1998 for the Super Famicom, this game really doesnít fit cleanly into the Blue Bomberís initial series.

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Do you remember the music of the early nineties? It featured a wave of experimental genres and new hybrids, at least compared to the music of the eighties. From Seattle, the raw sound of Nirvana refined the rougher edges of punk, paving the way for later acts such as Green Day, which itself was a hybrid of British punk and ďnewĒ alternative. The Black Crowes tried a new fusion of Southern blues with rock and roll. Rage Against the Machine combined political protest lyrics with an aggressive ...

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...
