Super Mario Kart (SNES)

Super Mario Kart review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 21, 2002

Now for this review to be honestly fair, you must understand where I am coming from. I was not one of the ones who had experience Super Mario Kart when it was first released, nor before I had even played it's sequel. I only got it around three months ago when I got my Super Nintendo, seeing I wanted the original Mario Kart. I was kinda dissapointed with the experience but that is understandable. I will try to understand this game when it was originally released, but really I guess I can't. Howev...

Devil May Cry (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 19, 2002

I know millions of people will be up and arms when I say this, but I think Devil May Cry was Capcoms greatest achievement. Here me out before you go out and get your pitchforks and torches. Anybody can play Devil May Cry, and anyone can have fun with it. There is only one real flaw in the game, and it is a great experience nonetheless. There is a simple combination of strategy, skill, and a large handful of pure action. A great combination for a quick pickup, and loads of fun.

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link review (NES)

Reviewed on August 16, 2002

The Adventure of Link is not at all like the original. They combined a 3D world with 2D areas. The fighting is more similiar to Castlevania then it is to the original Zelda. Really I do not understand why the original NES always changed the sequels so drastically from an already succesful formula. This is my least favorite Zelda game, for it could've been much better and I did not like how the game worked out, and the strange story.

Donkey Kong Land (Game Boy)

Donkey Kong Land review (GB)

Reviewed on August 14, 2002

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong had hit the scene in Donkey Kong Country, and the world loved it. So quickly a gameboy game was created with the same characters and the same idea as Donkey Kong Country. Surprisingly enough, however, it was not a complete port of the SNES version, and actually it was a completely different game. That is for better of for worse, for Donkey Kong Country was a better game, but that is because there was so much more put into it. However this was the original gameboy, and ...

Super Mario World (SNES)

Super Mario World review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 08, 2002

Of course when the SNES was released it had to debut with a character that all the world had grown to know. That character was Mario, who had appeared in four games adventure games before the SNES was ever born. Mario was the SNES mascot, and he rivaled Sonic of Sega. So here we go, the game that made the Super Nintendo a must own when it first debut, and a great video game too. Super Mario World was one of the peaks in Mario's industry, and a fun experience.

Final Fantasy IX (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IX review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 05, 2002

The Final Fantasy tradition continues for me. Each Final Fantasy game I play one ups the game I played before it. I thought it would end with Final Fantasy VII, such a great game that was, not likely to be beaten. And yet through the entire game Final Fantasy IX was right on it's tail, and it overthrew it with the perfect ending. See, you are basically buying a $20 movie with Final Fantasy IX, and a little bit of fun also. However I can think of millions of movies that are worse than the story s...

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube)

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 04, 2002

This is one of those games you wait and wait for, hoping that is everything you expected it to be. And it turns out it's not everything you expected it to be, it turns out to be so much more. Eternal Darkness is one of those games that stood out. Originally to be released by the Nintendo 64, then planned to be released on the early life of the Gamecube it kept being pushed off. Originally I only wanted this game because of the weak Gamecube lineup. That is why I bought the game, Gamecube really ...

Metroid II: Return of Samus (Game Boy)

Metroid II: Return of Samus review (GB)

Reviewed on August 03, 2002

Metroid had become a cult favorite, and an instant classic for the NES. Millions of gamers wanted a sequel for it, and the gameboy seemed the perfect place. They took the same strategy used to make the first one, and made Metroid II: The Return of Samus. However, like the first one, in my eyes it was a very overated game, not worth the money to buy it.

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on August 01, 2002

Metroid has rather rapidly become a videogame legacy. However before the truth came out that Samus Aran's and before the famous sequel, led by Super Metroid, there was the original Metroid for the NES. This game is what spurred on the series, and in truth I really don't know how. I got this game early on in my NES's life in a bundle of about 10 games. At first this game was fun, but then the difficulty set in. You have to search every little corridor a million times, just to try and figure out w...

Street Fighter II (Game Boy)

Street Fighter II review (GB)

Reviewed on July 31, 2002

Everyone at there point in life has played a Street Fighter game. In my mind, discluding Mortal Kombat, it is the most known fighting game in America if not the world. However being deprived of the more high tech systems, my only link to Street Fighter was my little gameboy cartridge. However that link was still a good game, although not up to par with the rest of the series.

Baseball Mogul 2003 (PC)

Baseball Mogul 2003 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 30, 2002

Ever watched a baseball game on television? It's quite a boring experience. A seven million dollar pitcher steps on the mound, shakes off a sign, shakes off another, before finally deciding on the good old number one. He's just about ready to windup when the batter decides to call time. Usually to scratch himself in a place that the television cameras can't film. Repeat this for four hours and you have the average baseball game.

Super Solvers: Challenge of the Ancient Empires (PC)

Super Solvers: Challenge of the Ancient Empires review (PC)

Reviewed on July 30, 2002

If you asked me what game I have put the most time in over my entire life, it wouldn't be some console hit or a simulatoion game, or anything of that sorts. No, it would easily be Challenge of the Ancient Empires. I played this game day in and day out for 5 years. I have beaten it on the easier mode at least 50 times, and on the hardest mode (and there is a differnece) twice. This game is not easy, and in truth the age group 10+ is perfect for the game, although I beat it all at 9 :-) So, sure t...

The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World (NES)

The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World review (NES)

Reviewed on July 29, 2002

Videogames coming off television shows usually are short and with little replay value with them. However the one that stands above those rules is The Simpsons: Bart vs the World (here on known as S:BVTW). This is easily the only really good Simpsons game in my mind, although it is really an above average game. Sure it has it's technical problems, but it has alot of moments among it.

Home Alone (NES)

Home Alone review (NES)

Reviewed on July 29, 2002

Home Alone is based on the movie of the same name. Well, most people hate movie to game video games, but I just don't see what's so terrible about them. I have to ask a question: Is Home Alone really all that bad? It had a cool idea, that no game tried to copy (except, well, Home Alone on SNES and Genesis, but they're the same game). And I don't care what you say, I think Home Alone is actually an OK game. Sure the graphics and sound weren't memorable, and it was hard as fuck, but for some reaso...

Ghostbusters (NES)

Ghostbusters review (NES)

Reviewed on July 29, 2002

Ghostbusters is, without a doubt, the worst game ever. No game is worse. Not only does it combine bad graphics, bland sound, lame control- but very (x200000000) bad gameplay. I doubt anyone actually played this game, but still I have to review a game that sucks, because it's easier to tell you why a game blows, then why it is great; that's my opinion.

Donkey Kong Country (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 27, 2002

Donkey Kong Country started a legacy of it's own. The original Donkey Kong game made over a decade ago, was about Donkey Kong kidnapping a beautiful woman. Now instead of Donkey Kong being the kidnapper, he is on the other side of it. So off he goes on a mission using typical side scroller skills (very similiar to Mario) creating a classic of his own.

Super Smash Bros. (Nintendo 64)

Super Smash Bros. review (N64)

Reviewed on July 25, 2002

Take your favorite nintendo characters and duke them out against one another. This is what Super Smash Brothers offers to the Nintendo 64 table. This game has deep gameplay, and is an addictive multiplayer fighter. I fell in love with this game when I first saw it advertised, and it was as good as I ever expected.

Bloody Roar: Primal Fury (GameCube)

Bloody Roar: Primal Fury review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 23, 2002

The Nintendo 64 had a very small collection of real fighters, and none that dominated the market. Well, the Gamecube knew that they needed to strengthen their fighting genre, and they signed on to Bloody Roar: Primal Fury. At first I thought this was to be some boring fighter, with just good graphics. However Bloody Roar is a very fun game, and definitely worth the buy if you are into fighters.

Mario Party (Nintendo 64)

Mario Party review (N64)

Reviewed on July 23, 2002

Truthfully, I never understood the fame Mario Party recieved. It is a good game with alot to do in it, however it really isn't that fun of a game when you have friends around and there are alot better games you could play. However Mario Party still was the party game to own for around a hundred different games were available to play throughout it. Many of them are button smashers, but a few scattered here and there are fun.
