Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis)

Castlevania: Bloodlines review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 07, 2003

For once, Lord Dracula, sent to the blazes of Hell by another pawn bestowed by the Belmont blood, hasn't come back through means beyond human comprehension. Rather, he is preparing to make a baneful reappearance through the aid of Countess Elizabeth Bartley, who is willing to sacrifice humanity for her startling uncle. On the verge of being resurrected, Dracula represents a menace to humanity, a plague that will in time reduce it to mere puppets. The setting is appropriate; ...

Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube)

Super Mario Sunshine review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 04, 2003

Are We Disappointed Yet?

A release like that of Super Mario Sunshine brings with it some pretty high expectations. The last time Nintendo gave us a Mario game (and a rushed one at that), it was so spectacular that most would wonder if it could be surpassed. At the same time, even those filled with doubt must also be filled with anticipation and longing for another display of that spectacular genius. The rule of thumb seems to be that one shouldn’t approach any big-name ga...

A Tear in this Old Man's Eye

In my heyday - back when polygons stayed in geometry class where they belonged - the American entertainment industry first became host to what would become perhaps the most powerful symbiotic entity ever to come over from Japan - the Nintendo Entertainment System. It wasn’t long until everybody and his grandma owned one. But while most of the NES-owning kids cared more about Tecmo Super Bowl or Double Dribble, there was one enchanting game that spent ...

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings Volume 1 (SNES)

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings Volume 1 review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2003

Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings have earned well-deserved praise and respect from just about everyone except nit-picking Tolkien purists. However, some of us may remember the other LotR film, made in 1978 by Ralph Bakshi. This version was pretty much universally derided and despised by both critics and Tolkien fans alike. The Lord of the Rings: Volume 1 for the Super Nintendo is the videogame equivalent of the Bakshi movie. The other Lord of the Rings videogame.

Contra (NES)

Contra review (NES)

Reviewed on January 30, 2003

Over time there have been multiple Contra titles. Contra is a sidescroller shooter in which you have an unlimited amount of regular ammo, plus powerups, in which to work your way by yourself, or with a partner, to defeat millions of foes. Contra is not an indepth game, but like many NES games it was just for fun, and it did it's purpose well.

Doom 64 (Nintendo 64)

Doom 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on January 28, 2003

In the Beginning…

…there was Doom, and it was good. Since then, the SNES, Playstation, 32X, Jaguar, Saturn, GBA, and even the 3D0 have all had Doom ported to them. Any Doom connoisseur can probably appreciate any of these ports on some level, but none could deny the plain fact that they are not, nor do they strive to be, anything but straight ports of the original games. Sure, “Doom Custom Playstation Edition” brought us a few new levels, some ambient background audio and colored...

Darkwing Duck (NES)

Darkwing Duck review (NES)

Reviewed on January 27, 2003

As all of you should know, Darkwing Duck was a duck who walked and talked like any human and wore a purple suit, and was supplied with various devices from his sidekick Launchpad McQuack and his neice Gosalyn. He had enemies galore, including the fearsome five, which spurred on this seven staged game in which seven of his greatest enemies lurked to stop Darkwing Duck himself.

Star Fox Adventures (GameCube)

Star Fox Adventures review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 27, 2003

Charming, and Somehow Familiar…

Like many gamers, I have a history with the Star Fox franchise filled with fond memories. So when I heard that the game was switching developers and genres for a trip to the Gamecube, I was very intrigued and at least a little worried. In any event, this was one game I didn't intend to miss. And while I can say that my fears that Star Fox might be ruined were dispelled, it's not because Star Fox Adventures lived up to my hopes ...

Genma Onimusha (Xbox)

Genma Onimusha review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 26, 2003

About four years ago we first heard about the ''ninja Resident Evil''. I was excited about the idea at first, but it all but left my mind when I played and was disappointed by the similarly-marketed Dino Crisis. Now that the eventual result of this idea, Onimusha, has come to my native console, I am happy to be able to praise it as being good as or better than any Resident Evil game ever.

The story of the game is set up nicely. You play as Samanosuke, a noble Samurai who fights for no c...

The thing about Tarot cards is that someone who actually believes that they are a gifted reader will offer their services for free, while the quacks are the ones jumping to charge you large sums of money to reveal your fortune and the meaning of life. Yay to Nintendo for being the quack.

Evert & Lendl Top Player's Tennis (NES)

Evert & Lendl Top Player's Tennis review (NES)

Reviewed on January 26, 2003

The idea behind Top Player Tennis was that it featured the top male and female tennis pros of the time, Chris Everet and Ivan Lendl (shows how old the game is), who would give you tips and lessons on how to play the game of tennis as you progressed through various tournaments. However due to poor gameplay, mediocre graphics and the lack of a high fun factor, Top Player Tennis turned out to be one huge lesson in frustration. Oh, and they pronounce Ivan Lendl’s name wrong.

Bad News Baseball (NES)

Bad News Baseball review (NES)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Often times, things don’t make much sense at all. For instance, there’s a popular expression that says, “A penny for your thoughts.” But there’s also a saying that says you have to “put your two cents in.” With these two statements, it’s obvious that someone out there is making a penny. But who is it? We have no idea, we’re just left to assume that these phrases are simple sayings that apply to us and not some vast greater idea.

Fish Dude (Game Boy)

Fish Dude review (GB)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Fish Dude is a simple game of “eat or be eaten.” The game takes place in the ocean, and you control a fish who is somewhere around the middle of the food chain. He’s pretty small and has to look out for bigger fish who will eat him, but he can also snack on the fish he finds that are smaller than he is.

Super Monkey Ball Jr. (Game Boy Advance)

Super Monkey Ball Jr. review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

At first glance, Super Monkey Ball Jr. brought horrible flashbacks of Marble Madness and the 3-D wooden board game Labyrinth—both of which I hated and sucked at. The resemblance was just too uncanny: navigate a little monkey in a plastic ball around a course to the finish gate by angling the terrain to make him roll a certain way. After playing a few rounds of it and continuously losing control of the monkey and watching him plummet off the edge with a heart-wrenching little shriek, I was read...

Crystal's Pony Tale (Genesis)

Crystal's Pony Tale review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Into the midst of all the shooters, macho beat-‘em-ups and blood-spurting fatalities galloped Crystal the pony, and showed everyone that little girls wanted things to play too. The fact that this title is now an obscurity doesn’t say much about the state of girl-games, and it’s truly a shame that girls today are tossed Barbie, Mary Kate & Ashley and Britney Spears games to “enjoy” when there were at one time innovative and intelligent games like this being made for them.

Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen (SNES)

Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 25, 2003

Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen is a game of many faces. Looking at it in retrospect it was a well made game, and did what I guess it was supposed to be. It made strategy a part of gaming, and made it crucial to being a victor. Problem is, that is only in retrospect. While playing the game I was bored beyond reasonable belief, and truly have no desire to play this game EVER again in my life. It would take me a full day to beat a single level, just cause I'd pause it for so many breaks. Ogr...
