TimeSplitters 2 (Xbox)

TimeSplitters 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 03, 2002

A few Christmasís ago (on the happiest Christmas of my life) I received a PS2 and the game Timesplitters. The game blew me away. The graphics were so much better than any other game I'd ever played at that time, the single player was cool, the multiplayer kicked complete ass, and there was hardly any work put into the story. Formula for a damn fine game, if you ask me. Thankfully, Timesplitters 2 for the Xbox is pretty much an exact copy of TS1 with graphical improvement, more characters, m...

Breath of Fire (Game Boy Advance)

Breath of Fire review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 01, 2002

Breath of Fire is a classic RPG ported from the SNES to the newly made Gameboy Advance. They added a bit to the game, but kept the original entertainment that had always been there. I was one person who never got to experience any of the Breath of Fire series made by Capcom, before this game for GBA that I picked up, because it looked entertaining. At first this game bored me, and I put it away for multiple months, but then I went back to it, and I found myself playing it more than all of my oth...

Kakuto Chojin (Xbox)

Kakuto Chojin review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 29, 2002

As a fan of fighting games, I've been kind of disappointed with the lack of games the Xbox has in this genre. As of a couple weeks, all the Xbox had was Kabuki Warriors, UFC Tapout, and Dead or Alive 3. One good game and two crappers. This week sees the release of two promising looking fighters; Kakuto Chojin and Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, so naturally I'm quivering with anticipation. I opted to pick up Kakuto Chojin over MK5, mostly based on the fact that I've already played quite a fe...

Donkey Kong Land 2 (Game Boy)

Donkey Kong Land 2 review (GB)

Reviewed on November 28, 2002

Instead of making it an entirely new Donkey Kong game, like they did before, this time they just ported the game as accurately as they could from the SNES. That was really not a bad mood, for Donkey Kong Country 2 was a very good game, and Donkey Kong Land 2 lives up to it nicely.

Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001 (PlayStation 2)

Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001 review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 27, 2002

Do we all remember Street Fighter from the good ol' days? I always will, as that is one series which shook the ground from under me. So when I saw that there was another fighter with the Street Fighter characters in it, I knew I had to pick it up. And yet after awhile I found myself using fighters that I have never seen before. That is the beauty of Capcom vs SNK. There are so many fighters to choose from, that there is a new one to learn each and every moment.

Metroid Prime (GameCube)

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 27, 2002

From the opening this game is a grabber and doesn't let go. This is, probably, the best crafted game that I have played since Perfect Dark.

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity (Game Boy Advance)

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity review (GBA)

Reviewed on November 27, 2002

F-Zero X was a grand game for the N64, and showed that there were more than just kart racing and car racing in the racing industry. Now there was the master of hovercrafts, who had appeared in two different games on two different systems. So why not make another one on the GBA. The GBA was as powerful as a Super Nintendo and the original F-Zero was good, so this one could be just as good. And it was good, but not great as it had some weaknesses.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (Xbox)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 26, 2002

Splinter Cell is one of the more hyped and anticipated games I've seen lately. People said it was going to be better than Metal Gear. People said it was going to bring an entirely new gaming experience. People said it was going to be the best Xbox game to date. The front of the box even says ''stealth action redefined''. Were they right? Read on.

Donkey Kong (Game Boy)

Donkey Kong review (GB)

Reviewed on November 25, 2002

The original Donkey Kong from the Nintendo industry was a huge hit. That is one of the things that put them on the board, and why not give people the chance to play it around a decade later on the new handheld gameboy. But you can't just give them the old Donkey Kong game itself. You have to make it bigger, MUCH bigger. And that is what they did, and they created a very entertaining experience.

Blood Wake (Xbox)

Blood Wake review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 23, 2002

I just picked up this game for twenty bucks on a bargain shelf. Why would I buy a game off the bargain shelf, you ask? Well, I only had twenty bucks, and I heard it was a sweet game (a while ago). Well, as it turns out, whoever told me it was a sweet game wasn't quite correct. He said it enthusiastically. It's not SWEET, it's merely...Okay. Good, even.

Grand Theft Auto III (PlayStation 2)

Grand Theft Auto III review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 23, 2002

Now and then there is a game that comes along that is like nothing else. A game that lets you live out your darkside, that everyone inevitably has. To be able to go ''whack'' some punk boy on the street, or go Kamikaze with cops shooting at you. Pedestrians at the sidewalk are at your mercy. You are in complete control in whether or not hundreds or people may live. And likely you won't let them live. That is Grand Theft Auto: 3. It is rightly rated Mature, as it is based on the darkside of the w...

Animal Crossing (GameCube)

Animal Crossing review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 22, 2002

Animal Crossing barely made it to America. Can you believe that... It was originally Animal Forest and released it to Japan. They then improved upon the game and set up a release for America. I was psyched, I love the Harvest Moon series, and I thought a game just like Harvest Moon without the farming would be a classic in itself. And that is what Animal Crossing, a game with such detail and such power that it is one of the must haves for the Gamecube and one of the most popular games to date, a...

Jacac (NES)

Jacac review (NES)

Reviewed on November 20, 2002

Buy big collections of games from various people, you always have the fillers, and that is what Jacac is; a filler. For a filler it isn't that bad, and it is very similiar to the much more famous Iron Tank. You ride around in a tank and shoot them from your barrels. Not something worth buying, but when you buy big collections you always have the no names and at least this one is somewhat fun.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance review (GBA)

Reviewed on November 20, 2002

I am a Castlevania fanatic, and follow each and every one of them like a cult member follows his leader. You could say I am a member of the Castlevania cult. The games suck you in with it's excellent gameplay, and keep you there with it's addictive entertainment. Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is no exception to this spectacular series. This is one of the tops in the series, although it is not the best Castlevania on the GBA. That doesn't change anything still, it is a must have for any GBA ...

Virtua Fighter 4 (PlayStation 2)

Virtua Fighter 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 19, 2002

There was a time when fighting games were as common as raindrops. Every day there were a few new ones released, mostly identikit, and mostly decidedly average affairs. This was due to the incredible success of Street Fighter 2, by Capcom. Clones were releaesed with frightening regularity, and the genre very nearly died due to over-exposure. The limits of what was possible were reached very quickly, or so people thought. However, nobody was prepared for what SEGA was cooking up in the background....

Jet Force Gemini (Nintendo 64)

Jet Force Gemini review (N64)

Reviewed on November 18, 2002

Some games get alot of fame in the press, but not in the sales, and Jet Force Gemini is the perfect game. It had quickly gained it's own cult fans, and was getting absurdly high reviews by professionals and minors alike. Did it deserve these high grades? Not one bit. There is nothing really memorable from Jet Force Gemini, not in gameplay, story, or graphical mode. Sure, it is mediocre in all those categories, but it follows the same formula that every Rare game takes. Exploring each and every a...
