Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

Super Mario 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on July 22, 2002

Super Mario 64 did a move that few would've expected, and that was switching to a 3D type of game. Instead of basically depending of jump, Super Mario 64 is an exploring game. Really the only thing similiar with the classic Mario and this one, is the fact that Mario/Peach/and Bowser are in it. However with all these changes Super Mario 64 is definitely a great game, and met with much success when it was released with the N64. And well, it better have bee good, cause it was the only game at the r...

Mario Golf (Nintendo 64)

Mario Golf review (N64)

Reviewed on July 18, 2002

When people have too much money then they can handle, they start buying a few rediculous games. With $60 and nothing to do with it, I went out and bought Mario Golf. Why? Cause I had money, and decided why not get a golf game, even if I hate golf. And it turns out Mario Golf is one of the best games on the Nintendo 64 for good reasons. I guess this excess money is not such a bad thing. hehehe.

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (Game Boy)

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 review (GB)

Reviewed on July 18, 2002

Wario hit the gaming scene at the end of Super Mario Land 2, but he hit with popularity. Now Nintendo wanted to cash in on this new character, so out comes Wario Land, a game where you play as Wario instead of Mario. Little twist now, isn't it? You take a badguy to take on the badguys. Where are the heroes? Oh wait, they are letting Wario do their work. However Wario can jump on creatures like Mario, but why not bodyslam them for more fun. But he can't spit fire, so he is not at all like Mario r...

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins review (GB)

Reviewed on July 17, 2002

Mario had easily become the emblem of Nintendo, and possibly the most popular videogame character easily, rivally Sonic. So of course another Mario game came up on the gameboy, this one after they realized how to use the gameboys power for action games. This game kinda takes the ability of Super Mario World, as you pick your levels, and you may even choose what world to go to time to time. There are a good number of levels in this game. I don't know exactly but over 50, and gamepack saving for t...

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land review (GB)

Reviewed on July 16, 2002

Super Mario Land was one of the first tests of the original game. To get a smooth action game, unlike the puzzle games that started it off. This is no easy feat, for the gameboy was not powerfully tested, and did not have any action games. Then Castlevania Adventure and Super Mario Land came out, one showing why it could do action games, another why it is weakened. However Super Mario Land showed that an action game could be made. It mostly resembles Super Mario Bros 1, with the simple jump game...

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on July 16, 2002

Super Mario Bros 3 took the ideas in the first and expanded them into a much bigger, and a much better game. Sure, it isn't the first, therefor not the instant classic, however for most this is the Mario game they've put the most time in. At least it is for me.

Meet Roger Bacon. An elegant English gentleman, he enjoys tea, crumpets, and cricket. Oh yes, he also enjoys slaying priests who meddle with his plans for world domination. Above all, he is a gentleman though.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on July 15, 2002

Super Mario Bros 2 is definitely a strange game. Like Castlevania, Zelda and other great series the second game differed from the methods the series has already taken, and will take from here on out. This game is definitely innovative and a major hit still today. But really is it truly a Mario game, for it differs so much from the first and the third for it is not the jump on top of goombas and kill them and where is King Koopa. Of course Mario is in a dream in this game, so who knows...

Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt (NES)

Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt review (NES)

Reviewed on July 14, 2002

First of all this is for both Duck Hunt and Super Mario Bros as a collection, so if you want more information about my views on the original Super Mario Bros read my review on just that, for it is alot more detailed than this will be. However putting these two games as a collection is how most of us first experience Super Mario Bros. and the flash gun. So why not get them both at once, that is what I would do.

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on July 14, 2002

Super Mario Bros was one of the most influential games in the history of videogame history. It was the revolution with a simple plumber named Mario who wanted to jump on Goombas and save a princess. Now this is oldschool, and I mean oldschool. There is truly no story, just gameplay. That was when people minds were simple and did not need a reason to save a princess, just throw in a game and play for the good fun of it. However somehow with all the fancy technology and games where graphics and st...

Way of the Samurai (PlayStation 2)

Way of the Samurai review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 12, 2002

The year is 1878. The collapse of the Tokugawa shogunate has brought an end to the Age of Samurai. Born to a time that no longer needs or welcomes them, these samurai are a far cry from the heroes and legends that preceded them. This is a story of the Way of the Samurai in their final days. I am Kenji, a nameless Samurai to most whom has come to the Rokkotsu Pass on my way to Tokyo. Two factions vie for power in this area. Only I can decide the outcome of this conflict. I will use my combat skil...

Jeopardy! Sports Edition (Game Boy)

Jeopardy! Sports Edition review (GB)

Reviewed on July 11, 2002

Usually Jeopardy games become old fast, and even worse when it is on a portable system, with little to no ability to play two players. Sure you can stick to people on the same gameboy, but that gets annoying fast. Also you have to type in the answers by clicking each key which makes this game long and a hassle. However it redeems itself with it's tough but possible answers. This game is strange, that in most aspects it seems bad, and yet it comes off as an entertaining experience.

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 11, 2002

Final Fantasy 7 is the Ultimate Console RPG ever created. The storytelling is superb, and on the cutscenes are very good for it's time. Final Fantasy 7 had alot to live up to, sense Final Fantasy 4 and 6 were such great games, and well in my Final Fantasy 7 was equal too, if not better than both of them. At first I played through the PC version and beat it there, however my friends owned the Playstation so I gave a look through it, so I could fairly review that version too.

Pokemon Crystal Version (Game Boy Color)

Pokemon Crystal Version review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 08, 2002

Pokemon Crystal was a plan by Nintendo to make more money off their already popular series. They took the same game as Gold/Silver and seeing they couldn't add in special Pokemon or anything, they made it easier to catch Suicine, and gave him an inside story to keep you in it. Also for once you can be a girl trainer, which amazes me they never came up with this sooner. But in truth it is just the third game in the series, and one you really don't need to play to get all the Pokemon.

Pokemon Silver Version (Game Boy Color)

Pokemon Silver Version review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 08, 2002

With Pokemon Silver you will need to link up with Gold to catch all 250 of the Pokemon. In aspect this is what Pokemon is all about, and I love it. Looking back Pokemon Silver and Pokemon Gold respectively were probably the best games to sore onto the Gameboy Color, and although not technologically great games, the gameplay is what made Pokemon great.

Pokemon Gold Version (Game Boy Color)

Pokemon Gold Version review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 08, 2002

Pokemon Gold is one of those games that improves upon an already great game. The original Pokemon for gameboy was already a major success, and well they took that some recipe and added a few new ingrediants. This time there were 100 more pokemon, a way to breed them, and different times of day and night. Of course to get all 250 you would have to trade your Pokemon you already from the originals, and Pokemon silver. However the game is similiar, and yet so much better.

Fox Sports College Hoops '99 review (N64)

Reviewed on July 07, 2002

This is a dirt cheap game in stores, and well one day I had $5 and I saw it was that much, so I purchased it. At first I was pissed because there is no real college b-ball players. Instead you have players similiar to real life counterparts with rediculous names. I got it to see Jason Hart and Etan Thomas of Syracuse, and I was sadly disapointed. However I did put a good amount of time into this game nonetheless.

Pokemon Pinball review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 07, 2002

Yes I actually bought this game, for I sadly admit at one point in my life I was a Pokemon fanatic (however I never did play that card game). So when I saw there was a pinball game out, I was like SCORE more Pokemon. Hahahaha, I regretted that decision kinda, seeing they gave me $20 back for the game, I only lost $10 in the end, and that is actually a fairly good deal. This game is another Pinball spinoff, except you gain the ability to capture Pokemon while racking an insane number of points. T...

Warriors of Might and Magic (Game Boy Color)

Warriors of Might and Magic review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 06, 2002

I am not a typical PC RPG gamer, however I had heard good things about Warriors of Might and Magic, and thought it deserving of a pickup. I played it for about 2 combined hours, before bringing it back for about half the price. That was the biggest bust of my money probably in the history of videogames, so you can already see this is going to be a rating to rival games like Aidyn, and it will. However some might think that I never gave this game enough time, but boy did I try to and if it's impo...
