Altered Beast (Genesis)

Altered Beast review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Altered Beast has become an internet nerd's whipping boy.

The Adventures of Batman & Robin (Genesis)

The Adventures of Batman & Robin review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

The feeling, when you want to like something, but can't- it permeates throughout the Batman and Robin experience. It makes you realize how great the potential for the game was, and conversely, how sad it is that it never reached it.

Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage (Dreamcast)

Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage review (DC)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Gattsu is a bad hero. Gattsu is a man who cares for no one, except the singular exception of his life's love, Casca. He searches the medieval wasteland world for the cure for her disease, his soul an otherwise vacant, purposeless being.

Soul Calibur wasn't always the Dreamcast's ''best'' game.

Cannon Spike (Dreamcast)

Cannon Spike review (DC)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

While it has played host to some great shooters and some generic shooters, the DC has really had a ridiculous amount of ''shooters with a twist.'' Realistically, every shmup developer claims their game has a collection of unique elements that makes theirs better- thing is, every now and then, it's not rhetoric. Such is the case with Psikyo and Capcom's Cannon Spike, the best ''twist'' shooter on the DC.

Mortal Kombat (Game Gear)

Mortal Kombat review (GG)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

My how times change. When I was around 12 and 13, all I ever heard from my friends was how awesome Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat 2 were. It seemed like I was the only boy in the world that didn't live in the arcades during the day learning all of Mortal Kombat's moves and then stay up all night playing it at home. To me, it was just OK. Fast forward 10 years and now it seems like i'm an outcast yet again! Ask nearly any other reviewer and they'll be like, ''OMG! MORTAL ...

Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

Super Mario 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on March 13, 2004

In 1985, Mario ushered in a new era of gaming. The platformer genre moved beyond the limited scope of Pitfall or Jungle Hunt as the original Super Mario Bros shattered the old way of playing these games. It set the standard, and every platformer afterward owed its thanks to this strange plumber. Eleven years later, Nintendo did it again. Once again, an entirely new style of games was created when Super Mario 64 burst onto the scene, and again the industry followed in its footsteps. But this time...

Metroid: Zero Mission (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid: Zero Mission review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 12, 2004

The original Metroid, released in 1986, captivated its players by providing a challenging and epic quest. Featuring Samus Aran, a female bounty hunter with a mysterious past, players navigated unchartered terrain on an alien planet in an attempt to destroy the evil that reigned within its depths. Collecting items was a key part of the quest, as certain doors and locations were impossible to pass without a specific powerup. Many players spent countless hours in the deep caverns of Zebes fighting ...

Strider 2 (PlayStation)

Strider 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 12, 2004

It saddens me to say this, but the 2D platformers genre is dying. Everyone remembers playing Super Mario Bros., Castlevania, and numerous other fine titles. But now all those games have evolved into 3D scavenger hunts. The fun of perfectly executing a challenging jump has been replaced by hunting for an endless amount of items or battling awkward camera angles just to land the easiest of jumps. Strider 2 is an attempt to recapture the former days of 2D excellence, but ca...

Dragon Warrior II (NES)

Dragon Warrior II review (NES)

Reviewed on March 11, 2004

The original Dragon Warrior was about as downgraded as a RPG can get. There weren't a lot of spells, or equipment. The world map was pretty small, and not tons of direction was given. To top it off all the battles were one on one. Enix had a lot to improve upon for their sequel, Dragon Warrior 2. They succeeded in many ways, but a few more problems were also created, keeping it from it's potential.

Panic Restaurant (NES)

Panic Restaurant review (NES)

Reviewed on March 11, 2004

Weird dreams? We've all had one or two. As far as their entertainment value goes, they lie somewhere in the middle. Certainly a dream as peculiar as playing soccer with a refrigerator, a talking warthog, and your third-grade teacher is preferable to the perennial nightmares of waking up late for an important midterm or witnessing the death of a relative, but it simply can't compare to those beautiful visions of paradise where you find yourself in bed next to Sarah Michelle Gellar smoking a fat c...

Mega Man 4 (NES)

Mega Man 4 review (NES)

Reviewed on March 10, 2004

It’s completely understandable if Dr. Wily was feeling just a bit of frustration by the time that Mega Man 4 rolled around. After all, as a three-time loser in his battles with the Blue Bomber, the not-so-good doctor was on the verge of becoming a joke like the infamous adversaries of the Harlem Globetrotters — the Washington Generals.

American Idol (PlayStation 2)

American Idol review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

What's that awful noise? A horrendous, mangled shrieking. A wailing and groaning punctuated by explosions of mocking laughter. Is some horrible torture taking place? No, unfortunately that's the sound of me playing the Pop Idol game very, very badly and being soundly ridiculed by a roomful of teenagers. Damn.

Herdy Gerdy (PlayStation 2)

Herdy Gerdy review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Every now and then a game comes along that is so original that it defies easy categorisation. Herdy Gerdy, developed by Tomb Raider creators Core Design, is one such game. You have to make controlled jumps like a platform game; likewise you need to collect items to progress to the next areas, again like a platform game. But the actual meat of the game is much more similar to that of a puzzle game. In fact at its heart, this plays very much like a glorified version of that early nineties classic,...

Dragon Tales: Dragon Seek (PlayStation)

Dragon Tales: Dragon Seek review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Dragon Tales - Dragon Seek is part of an evil plot by the powers that be to distort the fragile minds of children and turn them against videogames for good. You see Dragon Tales is a game aimed at very young kids, a cutesy, wutesy hide and seek game where you play either a nauseating boy or girl who go to the land of dragons to play with their little cute dragon friends.

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (PlayStation)

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Broken Sword for the PlayStation is a terrible game. It contains all the faults of the PC version with plenty more added due to it being such a terrible conversion. This was one of the first games to come out on the PlayStation and it is sure showing it ages. Clunky gameplay, horrific loading times, stupefying slow pace and unforgivable levels of frustration caused by lazy, glitchy gameplay all contribute to make this one of the most overrated and boring games ever.

Disney's Aladdin (Sega Master System)

Disney's Aladdin review (SMS)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

I have to confess something. Disney films have always left me cold. While I can appreciate the stunning technical achievements and superbly crafted storylines, the actual end products have never really appealed to me even as a youngster. I like cack-handed, shoddy ''oh the kids will buy it'' licensed games based on Disney films even less. In fact I could go as far as to say they are probably the genre of game I like the least. So having put my biased cards on the table early on you probably won'...

Worms (PlayStation)

Worms review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Ah worms, where to begin talking about a game so close to my heart? This simple, some might say primitive game that still exerts such a pull on gamers supposedly more into the million polygon delights of games like Shenmue, or long in-depth rpgs like Final Fantasy 9. Where then in this world for a simple 2D delights of Worms? A game that doesn't even support simultaneous multi player action. Surely it is better left to gather dust along with other relics of the PSX's early days.
