Command and Conquer: Renegade (PC)

Command and Conquer: Renegade review (PC)

Reviewed on September 08, 2004

Set in the game world of the original Command & Conquer RTS, Renegade is a first person shooter centering around a commando named Havoc and a simple plot unfolding over 12 missions. It is no way a ground breaking RTS, and in fact has a couple of flaws that leave it clearly a step behind the best in the genre. Renegade is mostly of an interest to fans of Command & Conquer due to the many similarities and tributes to the original game, but will likely only be of remote interest to those who have n...

Age of Mythology review (PC)

Reviewed on September 06, 2004

An angry army of Cylclops and Medusas has infested your town and is destroying all of your houses and civilians. Now... considering this isn't your normal everyday problem, you have several choices: A) Run around screaming and wetting your pants. B) Call your local exterminator. C) Attack the annoyances with your awesome army of Hersirs, after of course, freezing them solid with your Frost god-power.

Crimson Tears (PlayStation 2)

Crimson Tears review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 06, 2004

Considering the scant advertising and minimal hype that accompanied the release of Crimson Tears, I think it's safe to say that Capcom determined the project's chances of succeeding to have been dubious at best. But let's suppose for a moment that the corporation's head honchos turned their attention from Viewtiful Joe ports and Resident Evil rehashes, and decided to give this little beat 'em up a bit of support. Their efforts likely would have focused on the gorgeous cel-shaded visuals that T...

Deathrow (Xbox)

Deathrow review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 05, 2004

I feel it’s unfair for creatively good games to not be advertised in anyway or be released with over shadowing big name competitors. This usually causes unknown games to fall in between the cracks of genre rivals and its own obscure world. In the end, these games don't receive the attention they deserve nor does it normally give the game's fans a worthy sequel to look forward to. I believe Deathrow can be classified in this way. It features fighting/beat 'em up action combined with an innovative...

Do you like big swords? How about oversized muscle men in suspenders? If you answered yes to either questions, you’ll love Namco’s latest double edged serving of Soul Calibur II. Yum…giant steak knives…

NES Play Action Football (NES)

NES Play Action Football review (NES)

Reviewed on September 04, 2004

A good football game on the NES is a difficult title to gain. The NES's lack of power and overall simplicity made it challenging for football games, or any sports games, to capture a sense of the sport and be playable at the same time. Don't get me wrong; the NES did host a trio of football classics. Two being Tecmo Bowl (1989) and its sequel Tecmo Super Bowl (1991), both offered a football feel and easy to pick-up playability. NES Play Action Football is the other of these football classics. It...

Mega Man X4 (PlayStation)

Mega Man X4 review (PSX)

Reviewed on September 04, 2004

If there's one thing gamers know about Capcom, it's that they like to reap the rewards of a successful title. I mean, come on. Six Mega Man games on one console, countless Street Fighter rehashes and a remake of about every single Resident Evil game to exist? Out of those franchises, though, Mega Man has been the most popular. Most gamers have loved to play as the short blue robot, shooting bad guys and fighting for everlasting peace. And its most famous spin-off, the X series, has been j...

Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox)

Panzer Dragoon Orta review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 04, 2004

Panzer Dragoon Zwei didn’t waste any time. The opening scene violently hurled unsuspecting gamers into an enemy-infested outpost with the ability to destroy nearly any building for obscene amounts of bonus points. Branching paths were later introduced, culminating in the absurdly intricate Underground Canals. The sheer beauty of reflective turquoise waters enchanted players’ hearts, but the mis-shapen creature skulking beneath the surface chilled players’ spines. As Lundi and h...

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 01, 2004

If I were forced to come up with one flaw in Konami’s masterful Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Playstation, it would involve that game’s lack of difficulty. For a person who had nearly cried bloody tears after suffering his millionth death at the hands of Dracula, Death and pals in Castlevania III, the utter ease at which I was able to bully my way through C:SotN was a bit disconcerting.

Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

Super Mario 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on August 28, 2004

Nothing was new in the Mushroom Kingdom. The friendly Princess Toadstool had invited Mario the Italian plumber to the castle for some cake, and Mario couldn't resist. Eagerly jumping out of the large green pipe, he noticed that the landscape was slightly different--and that he could move in three dimensions. Mario, eager to stretch his legs, decided to jump around a little bit and kill some time. And he certainly did jump, easily leaping higher than the average human could dream of. However, thi...

Donkey Konga review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Life is full of surprises. Until recently if someone had told me that gorillas can play conga drums I would have laughed them out of the room. Peeling bananas and tossing fecal matter around the place is one thing, but hammering out a happening beat on a set of drums is something else entirely. Who would have guessed then that Nintendo's #1 gorilla was one hip dude? Luckily for us someone did and have chosen the big fella to fill the gapping, musical sized hole in Nintendo's software line-up. Wi...

Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Where brothers and sisters are concerned, nothing says unfair quite like being compared to your older sibling. Try as you might to match their achievements, invariably you're left standing in the corner as the dark shadow of someone else's success begins to fall across your life. "Why can't you be more like him?" your parents ask. "He knows what life's all about, you're such a disappointment to us all!" they claim. Yes, yes, I know how much I've let you both down. Now go away would you I'm tryin...

Splatterhouse 3 (Genesis)

Splatterhouse 3 review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Arising from the mediocrity that was Splatterhouse 2 came a sequel with that packed a little more punch and bled a little more blood. Namco picked up the rusty and cranky gameplay and polished it up a lot creating not only the best in the series but a great fun beat-em-up that was absolutely crammed to the full with challenge, a ton of unforgettable action and most importantly a pile of unnecessary violence and gore.

Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

In the beginning there was Interplay. Interplay begat Capcom, and Capcom begat Konami... between them, these 3 software giants were directly responsible for the creation, development and refinement of one of the world's most popular genres, survival horror. If it wasn't for the ground breaking release of Alone In The Dark for the PC, survival horror as a genre would never have been born. If Capcom hadn't pushed ahead with Resident Evil 1 and 2, the genre would have never reached the masses. And ...

Freedom Fighters review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Russians weren't always the jolly, vodka swilling people that we know them to be today. Not so long ago they were the Red Menace, as feared as they were ruthless. For decades, the fear of communism and the Soviets drove America and its western allies into a near constant state of paranoia, as a deadly game of brinkmanship drove the world to the very edge of nuclear Armageddon. Then one day, quite out the blue, something unexpected happened... they became our friends. With the collapse of the Sov...

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Something funny is happening to the world of anime licensed gaming. Whereby once the phrase ''based on the hit anime series'' spelt certain doom for a game, these days things are not so clear cut. While it may be true that there is still a fair amount of licensed crap polluting store shelves, the chances of happening upon something that's reasonably playable have been slowly increasing. This is partly in thanks to the efforts of Bandai Entertainment who, for the past 12 months, have taken some m...

23 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This will be your new home. A concrete cell no more than 6 feet across by 9 feet deep. It is going to be your future, it is going to be your hell. Locked away for your heinous crimes, all you have for company are your thoughts and a conscience that betrays you. For an hour each day you are let out of your cell to feed, exercise and shower... but this is no reprieve from the monotony... it is much worse. What should have been a celebration of freedo...

Since the advent of CD based gaming technology, insiders in the know and armchair experts alike have been predicting an ultimate merging of Hollywood and the game industry. This long sought after goal has been something of a Holy Grail for developers, and one that until recently may have seemed impossible to achieve. But just as surely as the sun inevitably rises each morning, so is new gaming hardware developed. The recent rise of the DVD format combined with the increased power offered by mode...

Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

If there's one thing that the average Japanese person fears more than the strange faced foreigners they sometimes see wandering their streets, it would have to be their demons. These faces of evil are so deeply entwined in local mythology and superstition that there would seem to be a demon for every occasion. From the mountain dwelling Tengu that torments lost travelers, to the Kappa water demons that drown hapless swimmers, there's a single universal constant that binds... a total and utter ha...
