Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro (PlayStation)

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Not very long ago, those kind people at Activision and Neversoft had a brilliant idea - an idea that became the really rather good Spider-Man for the Sony Playstation. If that game made your Spider-sense tingle, then you'll be pleased to know that there's a sequel out, and even more pleased to know that, hey, it's really not that bad either. Well that's good news...

Spider-Man (PlayStation)

Spider-Man review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Superhero games are never the most eagerly anticipated games on the release schedule. Gamers have learned the hard way, through years and years of substandard piles of junk such as the abysmal Superman 64. However, those superb people at Activision and Neversoft obviously have no idea about how downright bad Superhero games are supposed to be, because when they made Spider-Man for the Playstation, they made it... well... great.

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol (PlayStation)

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol isn't exactly one of the more highly-rated titles to have hit the Playstation. It (and it's sequels) in fact are generally thought of as being downright bad. And I'm not afraid to say that when this game was first popped into my grey box and played, I thought the same thing. I soon changed my mind, though, and here I'll try to explain why.

Silent Hill (PlayStation)

Silent Hill review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

What was that noise? It could have been a car backfiring in the street, but you think it seemed closer. Was that a creak on the stairs? Probably the wind in the trees outside, but you can't be sure. Hey, wasn't your door shut before? Now you're just being silly. Oh but look at you, you're very pale, you're jumping at the slightest thing, you're having sleepless nights... You've been playing Silent Hill again, haven't you....

Medievil review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Ah Tomb Raider, where would we be without you.... So many games today owe a great deal to the large-breasted one. Or, to put it another way, there are bucket loads of TR clones around. MediEvil, in a move that makes the preceding sentences relevant, is one of these games. Hurrah!

Hogs of War (PlayStation)

Hogs of War review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Pigs are fantastic animals. Where would we be without all the brilliant things they invented: sausages, ham, pork, bacon, and, if this game is to be believed, large quantities of weapons. Yep, the porkers are going to war, and it's up to you to help them. War has never tasted so good!

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

There's just something about the words 'Final Fantasy'. Those two words, when placed together, seem to send gamers everywhere into a rather exited state. In fact, it would be no overstatement to say that the Final Fantasy series of RPG games may well be one of the most revered in all of gamedom, right up there with Mario, Sonic and Zelda. So the pressure is very much on every time that Square choose to release a game in the series. And Final Fantasy VIII was perhaps under even more intense scrut...

Final Fantasy IX (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IX review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

The Final Fantasy series is one of the most revered in gaming, and with good reason. Picking up one of these epic RPGs is a beautiful feeling - you almost know that you're in for a great time. And Final Fantasy IX, the last original Final Fantasy game to be released for the PSX, is certainly no exception. Returning to the old-school styling, with a tale of wizards and warriors replacing the steam punk trappings of the last two games, Final Fantasy is getting back to it's roots, and in doing so t...

Fear Effect (PlayStation)

Fear Effect review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Every once in a while fantastic new technology is introduced to the game playing masses, and eager to show off this new technology designers can all too easily forget the fact that the new technical mumbo-jumbo is supposed to be used to help make games greater. A prime example of this is Fear Effect for the Playstation. The front cover proudly boasts that this game is 'Featuring Motion FX™ Technology'. What it neglects to mention is that this game is also 'Featuring intensely bad load times, rep...

Breath of Fire IV (PlayStation)

Breath of Fire IV review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Think Capcom, and what springs to mind? Resident Evil perhaps, or maybe Street Fighter. It's fair to say that they aren't really known for their RPGs. On the strength of this offering though, maybe they should be.

Apocalypse (PlayStation)

Apocalypse review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Bruce Willis has starred in a fair few classic movies, such as Die Hard and The Sixth Sense. However, he's also been in several that are downright average (such as The Last Boy Scout, and the bizarre Hudson Hawk). So which of these categories does his Playstation acting debut fall into? Although I dearly wish it were otherwise, this unfortunately falls into the latter. Apocalypse features the voice of Bruce, as well as a character made to resemble him as closely as possible. As the cover art sta...

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits (PlayStation 2)

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Life is anything but black and white; good or bad. Things are much more complicated, and in Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits (ATL:TOTS), they make that lesson very apparent. Instead you are thrown into a world where two races believe the other to be evil, and two people that tie them together. While they are of the same blood, you quickly learn that how they were raised effected their attitudes. Learning the traits of these protagonists is what makes Arc the Lad go on, and turns the newest i...

Legacy of Kain: Defiance (Xbox)

Legacy of Kain: Defiance review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

The Blood Omen/Legacy of Kain series of games is, at best, a mixed bag of tricks. Everything started off well with the first Blood Omen game. A rescently bitten Kain is striken with vampirism, and goes on a merry quest to lovingly impale those that cursed him. It played out like an adult version of Zelda. The adventure carried action, fair graphics (for it's time) and an intriguing storyline. Afterwards we're introduced to Raziel. Raziel was one of Kain's vampire lieutenants whom served under hi...

Air Gallet (Arcade)

Air Gallet review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 05, 2004

When it comes to the wild and wacky world of shooters, few things are as much of a sure bet as the simple fact that you’ve probably seen it all before. It may look nicer or be better executed in some games, but true originality is hard to find because every good idea ever made has seemingly been replicated over and over again by companies in the hope of squeezing as much money out of the concept before it becomes as stale as old bread.

Super Mario Kart (SNES)

Super Mario Kart review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 29, 2004

By 1992, Mario was tired and needed a long vacation. He had conquered the world of video games with engaging, classic platformers that all have his name on them. Super Mario Bros. had saved video games in thousands of people's eyes; Super Mario Bros. 2 was strange, yet classic nonetheless; Super Mario Bros. 3 became the biggest selling video game in history, and as many would argue, the best game ever up to this point. Finally, Super Mario World showed the world that ...

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 26, 2004

The first thing you will notice about Final Fantasy X is not the beautiful graphics, which show the great architectural structures or the beautiful lush green tropical forests or even the gargantuan mountains with winding paths covered in snow that you will become very familiar with. Nor will the first thing you notice be the voices, which bring each character to life, giving them a distinct personality. The first thing you will notice is the music, specifically, a quiet piano piece, dren...

Castlevania (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on February 25, 2004

You know, when it comes to video games, today’s kids have it easy. Do you remember back when you didn’t have fancy memory cards and saving your progress usually was done by scribbling down lengthy passwords (if that option existed at all)? Or when designers compensated for a game's lack of size by making it frustratingly difficult?

DemiKids: Dark Version (Game Boy Advance)

DemiKids: Dark Version review (GBA)

Reviewed on February 24, 2004

One must give credit to Atlus for trying to spark a little controversy. DemiKids comes off as the anti-Pokemon. The majority of your monsters aren't cutesy puff-balls of fluff. They're demons who'll only fight for you if the price is right, and look more like rejects from the old Beetlejuice cartoon. Not only can you recruit Lucifer himself but there's also noticeable phallic imagery and a naked woman or two. It's just too bad that for all the uniqueness the game offers it all turns out to be a ...

I have this friend I get together with every few weeks to simply hang out with and play games. A few years ago, the two of us had a great time with Resident Evil 2 and decided to find out if there were any other similar games on the Playstation.
