Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

If I'm prey to anything, it's a good marketing ploy. And what a whizzbanger this one is! Pokémon Snap (Nintendo, 1999) follows the path of milking the pocket monster cash cow - or rodent, as it were - with little diversion from time-tested formulas. Aimed toward very small children who think that an N64 controller is a highfalutin teething ring, it's basically a photo safari on wheels, as you take the helm in a spherical steel vehicle that looks somewhat like a gold Pokéball with a headlight int...

Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

Smell that? Mmmm ..... sludge from the nearby subterranean cave network. Kid tested, mother approved. The first level of the game drenches you in the stuff, or at least puts it in very near proximity to your fragile body. You get an innocent enough introduction for such a quirky game: Sonic and Tails dip low in their trademark biplane to take out Robotnik's impossibly large fortress of doom, though in the twinkling of an eye, they're cleanly and mercilessly shot down. Tails manages to steer the ...

Normy's Beach Babe-O-Rama (Genesis)

Normy's Beach Babe-O-Rama review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

To call it a lapse of good judgment on my part would be a sickening understatement, because believe it or not, I actually had high hopes for Normy's Beach Babe-O-Rama (Electronic Arts, 1994). When a friend shows you such an off-the-wall game, there is an innate obligation to play it and see what it's like just to appease your friend's desires. This is what happened to me as I sat helplessly behind a barrage of praise including phrases like ''This game is hilarious'', ''You'll love this game that...

Ka-Ge-Ki: Fists of Steel review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

After hesitantly accepting the HANGEDMAN CHALLENGE, I figured out why this game is called Ka Ge Ki. To understand the title better, one must break these three two-letter words down and investigate them individually.

MLB SlugFest 20-03 review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

To the best of my foggy recollection, baseball was invented in the late 19th century as the result of a bet between James Naismith and Abner Cooperstown to see who could come up with the manlier sport. Naismith, of course, had the foresight to see past the peach baskets and ladders and realize what great media scandals and bad video games Allen Iverson and Shaquille O'Neal would spawn, respectively. That man was a genius. The best Abner could come up with off the top of his head was Darryl Straw...

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour (GameCube)

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour doesn't take itself seriously. Seeing as how last time I checked, Nintendo was still aiming for the fetal-to-crawling demographic, there's no reason why it should. The first game it reminded me of was the excellent Hot Shots Golf on the original PlayStation. That was the first game I can recall that made a cartoon out of the sport and yet still succeeded in being a magnificent simulation of the real thing. Now, here we are more than half a decade later, graced with a s...

WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgame$! review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

Do you have a short attention span? Do long, drawn-out adventures like Final Fantasy X hold your interest for a while and then gather dust on a lonely shelf with the rest of your unfinished games? Do you take pills because a talking head in a white coat brainwashed you and your parents into believing that your hyperactivity inhibits all normal interaction with society? If so, then you may not know it yet, but Wario Ware Inc.: Mega Microgames is screaming to you from the confines of its glass dis...

Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival (Game Boy Advance)

Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

If anything, Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival (Capcom, 2001) takes home the award for longest name of a Street Fighter game. Why, slap on some EX + Alpha Double Third Strike Zero X and you've got yourself a bona fide super jam-packed fighter! However, it's easy to see how such a game would be overlooked, seeing as how many people have already played SSF2 at some point in their lives if they dare to claim to be anything of a Street Fighter fan. This is in addition to the fact that many peopl...

Monster Rancher Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Monster Rancher Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

Monster Rancher is a series that has enjoyed a smooth ride with very few major hitches, and it is possibly even more of a smash hit than Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh if you consider that it has met with prosperity despite lacking any hype or a successful cartoon (obviously a very important quality) to back it up. Though there have been so many variations implemented as to make the games more suited to highly eclectic tastes, overall the trilogy and its spinoffs have been well-received by critics and high...

Tetris Attack (Game Boy)

Tetris Attack review (GB)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

Some months back, I took a look at Tetris Attack, one of the greatest puzzlers to honor a 16-bit platform with its presence. Branded as a Tetris game but strangely infested by Yoshi and his weird friends, it would have been one bland puzzler save for one great feature: the ability to eliminate groups of at least three blocks, causing the ones above it to fall to the nearest stable ground. This opened up the possibilities of simultaneous multiple completed sets. When set up correctly, you could s...

Donkey Kong review (GB)

In the first level, you progressed upward through a series of tiers while bounding over barrels and swinging a hammer - your only line of defense against the unstoppable rolling barrel squadron.

Battletoads (Game Boy)

Battletoads review (GB)

Reviewed on December 09, 2003

I'll be frank. I hated the NES Battletoads. Playing alone was as boring as watching a documentary about driftwood, except around the third level or so the driftwood repeatedly slammed into your face with the force of a thousand rhinoceros horns and caused you to expend your three valuable continues and have to start over from the very beginning of the game. I won't even try to claim old-school status here; Battletoads is just freakin' hard with no justification whatsoever. Although there were se...

Super Monkey Ball (GameCube)

Super Monkey Ball review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 07, 2003

Do you have fond memories of Marble Madness? Well, I don't. The concept was cool enough, but trying to make a game like that with the limited resources of the 80s was just a bad idea. What that game needed was some advanced technology. So here it is, and Sega reinvented the classic with its sleeper hit Super Monkey Ball. Same basic idea, just done correctly this time. Oh, it has its problems, of course. But this is still one of the most unique, refreshing, and pleasant games I've played i...

Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox)

Otogi: Myth of Demons review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 05, 2003

For a thousand years, the Imperial Court had ruled. But the Seal was broken, and its days of glory drew rapidly to a close. Clouds gathered overhead, and the land was engulfed in a perpetual darkness. The light of neither star nor moon could pierce the night, and a giant tempest rose from the eerie blackness to level all that stood before it. When the winds had passed, all that remained was a Court in ruins, and a city devoid of all life.

XIII review (PC)

Reviewed on December 04, 2003

David Duchovny probably never imagined himself as a voice actor. The former star of the popular X-Files series that aired on Fox a few years back probably never expected the scope of his acting career to be limited to mystery/dramas either. But, even after that show has come and gone, Duchovny is still being cast into roles of characters with grim futures and pasts full of unanswered questions. His latest endeavor has him cast as the voice of XIII in Ubisoft's game baring the same name, and his ...

Seicross review (NES)

Reviewed on December 03, 2003

They always tell you not to judge a book by its cover. Well, nobody's ever told me not to judge a video game by its label! That's just what I did with Seicross. Jeremy Scott, my best friend at the time, was the lucky owner of this game that had a label that caught my eye right away. It's a mossy sort of green with bikers crashing into each other while a futuristic background encircles them. Before I knew it, Seicross was all I cared about during my stay at my friend's house. Forget all the other...

Let me start off by saying that if you are looking for great graphics and being able to control all the on-field action, this game is not for you. This game may seem simple, especially with there being next to no pictures.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 (PlayStation)

Street Fighter Alpha 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 09, 2003

Street Fighter is really the only fighting series I like. The whole genre just seems boring and stale to me, but somehow this series defies that. As much as I enjoy my SNES cart, I was still only cautiously optimistic about this game. Yet it was still one of the major factors in my breaking down and buying a PSX. Fortunately, my optimism was justified. Why? Probably because this title is much more worthy of the name Street Fighter Collection than Alpha 3. After all, this game perfectly blends to...
