Combat (Atari 2600)

Combat review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Just like Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt was usually the pack-in game for the NES, Combat was the pack-in title for the Atari 2600. There couldn't have been a much better game to use to get the Atari 2600 rolling in the right direction than Combat.

Circus Atari (Atari 2600)

Circus Atari review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Ahhh Circus Atari, one of my absolute favorite Atari 2600 games. Circus Atari features clowns who are dying to get some major hang time and pop some balloons for a living. The idea of the game is to move a seesaw back and forth in order to propel frantic stick-figured clowns up to the three sets of horizontally scrolling balloons overhead. When these goofy clowns are propelled to the unbelievable heights of your television screen, they flail their arms in a hyper fashion, which in turn pops the ...

Chopper Command (Atari 2600)

Chopper Command review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I've experienced some great video game clones in my day. Lock 'n Chase for the Game Boy takes cloning to another level by being even better than its protégé, Pac-Man. Galaga isn't bad for a Space Invaders clone either, is it? And don't even get me to start mentioning the legions of great platformers that tried to emulate Super Mario Bros. If you're familiar with the classic game for the Atari 2600 called Defender, then you'll pretty much know what to expect from the semi-clone, Chopper Command. ...

Centipede (Atari 2600)

Centipede review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The Atari 2600 had more than its share of arcade classics that were made for the system. The majority of them turned out to be almost as great, if not better than the arcade titles themselves. Not to mention that with only a few exceptions, these arcade translations were usually the best sellers for the system. When I think of the best arcade gems that have premiered for the Atari 2600, the first ones I think of are Space Invaders, Crystal Castles, Missile Command, Frogger, Defender, Moon Patrol...

Casino review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

If you're one of the millions of people who have ever enjoyed playing card games such as solitaire, blackjack, or poker; whether in video games or in real life, you will probably like Casino for the Atari 2600.

Canyon Bomber (Atari 2600)

Canyon Bomber review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

For as long as I've been playing video games, Canyon Bomber has been one of my favorites for the Atari 2600. It's a very simplistic game that's not deep in the content of its gameplay, but it succeeds in being entertaining and addicting, which is what video gaming is all about.

Brain Games (Atari 2600)

Brain Games review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The name of the game says it all in the case of Brain Games. Instead of producing the usual arcade blockbuster, a knockoff of a popular television show or movie, or just a game that defined odd (such as Plaque Attack or Custer's Revenge), some developers decided to make a game called Brain Games that would attempt to give players' brains a workout while playing the numerous types of brain teasers included in the cartridge.

Bowling (Atari 2600)

Bowling review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The sport of bowling is a special game. God hasn't made many people who hate losing more than I do, at any game, but especially at those that I like a lot. I hate that side of myself, but I've learned to live with it. I've also learned to deal with the fact that I usually hate any game that I'm not really good at. It takes a special kind of game to keep me liking it even if I suck at it, and bowling is one of those. Rarely do I ever reach the embarrassing total of 100 points in an entire game of...

Basketball (Atari 2600)

Basketball review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Like all of the sports games for Atari 2600, Basketball is as basic as it can get. It looks absurd and it's terribly dated, but it can still be a little bit of fun, believe it or not.

Asteroids (Atari 2600)

Asteroids review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Like most of the popular arcade hits that were ever made for the Atari 2600 console, Asteroids is a pure classic. In Asteroids, you get to take the controls of a triangular shaped ship that is stationed in outer space. Surrounding the ship on all sides are huge space rocks called asteroids. Most of the asteroids are on the right and left side of the spaceship, which is directly in the center of the screen. These galactic rocks consistently move either up or down the screen. As they move up or do...

Adventures of Tron (Atari 2600)

Adventures of Tron review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Adventures of Tron is an adventure unlike any you have ever seen before. But then again, this is an Atari 2600 game, and back in those days, anything, no matter how mindless, unique, or out of this world it was, it was easily accepted and slid onto the store shelves.

3-D Tic-Tac-Toe (Atari 2600)

3-D Tic-Tac-Toe review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I'm sure most of you already know how to play tic-tac-toe. If you don't, I feel sorry for you because it's a classic time passer that can get somewhat competitive. By the way, it can also be fun.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader (GameCube)

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 28, 2003

Rogue Squadron was really one of the best N64 games out there. With high production levels, incredible graphics, and that special feeling you get blasting away TIE fighters in the Star Wars universe, I and many others immediately fell in love with it. And why not? Very few Star Wars games, at least on consoles, were any good before this one came around, and it was really the first console game that truly gave you the feeling of being in the Star Wars universe. Rogue Leader continues that tra...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 26, 2003

The year is 1986. Your heart is pounding, your breath shortened, and you simply cannot believe you finally won. The enchanted silver arrow embedded itself deep into Ganon's chest, and the monster exploded in a flash of light. All that remained was a pile of ashes and the Triforce of Power. Trembling, you walk over and pick it up. A doorway opens, and there you find Princess Zelda, trapped in her cell. You free her, and the end credits roll. You have mastered the most amazing game you ever saw, a...

Metroid Prime (GameCube)

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 26, 2003

Many people have commented on how Metroid Prime is the greatest game ever, lavishly heaping praise on every last bit. Many took their time gushing over the smallest details or how innovative the game was or how its perfect and all the whiners complaining about it being first person were all wrong. Others blasted the game, complaining about the controls or the scanning or whatever. But cut out the hype. Ignore the hyperbole and the bashing, and look at the game itself. Is it as good as some peopl...

Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PC)

Mortal Kombat Trilogy review (PC)

Reviewed on October 22, 2003

The CD-ROM format has not been kind to the Mortal Kombat franchise. Believe it or not, behind all that 'button-mashing' and 'one-dimensional gameplay', there is a game engine hard at work, constantly loading new material into the fight. Whether it's Shang Tsung and his power to morph into other fighters (with all of their moves, combos, AND fatalities), or the changing battlegrounds and background music, the MK engine, at most times, is too fast for the CD-ROM.

Bandits: Phoenix Rising (PC)

Bandits: Phoenix Rising review (PC)

Reviewed on October 21, 2003

Imagine a futuristic world where the government has fallen, one just like any other video game world. Further imagine that the only way to get precious supplies is through fighting, much like a multitude of other video game worlds. Finally, imagine that the fighting takes place as you drive around various sprawling environments in stripped-down dune buggies -- now that's something a little different all together. This is the way of life for the heroes in Bandits: Phoenix Rising. In a worl...

Captain Tsubasa III: Koutei no Chousen (SNES)

Captain Tsubasa III: Koutei no Chousen review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 19, 2003

I remember the first time I watched Captain Tsubasa. Football (or soccer) meant absolutely nothing to me back then, but morbid curiosity (or my tendency to try and make fun of everything) and boredom convinced me to watch the entire episode. And what I saw was very refreshing (as opposed to the usual decrepit anime). Captain Tsubasa had everything you could hope for: a good plot (albeit being a bit predictable from time to time), lovable characters (in most cases) and something else that ...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 16, 2003

When I first heard about Cel-Shading for Zelda, I was completely outraged. I harbored thoughts of giong to the Nintendo company and massacreing the man who thought of this idea. But as time went on, I got used to this idea, because Zelda still will be Zelda no matter what type of graphics it is in. So of course, the game was released, and I immediately purchased it. Once I started the game, I knew it was to be an enjoyable experience, and yet I didn't dive myself into it like past Zelda games. T...

Razor Freestyle Scooter (PlayStation)

Razor Freestyle Scooter review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 10, 2003

I'm a devoted gamer who will play nearly anything tossed at me. However, there's a particular genre of gaming that doesn't suit my gaming needs, and that is the sports genre. But, once upon a time, there was a little revolution in the sports genre, and thus, extreme sports games were born. And in that, I found entertainment through titles such as Cool Boarders and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (THPS). So, I naturally assumed that a purchase of Razor Freestyle Scooter (Razor) would ...
