Suikoden (PlayStation)

Suikoden review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The duals are extremely challenging indeed, and I found myself getting very frustrated over them! It is also a challenge to recruit all 108 party members; it was fun doing it. Most party members require you to do some sort of ''chore'' before you get them.

Frequency (PlayStation 2)

Frequency review (PS2)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Bearing a surprising number of similarities to Parappa the Rapper yet supporting style and substance all its own, Frequency manages to be a breath of fresh air the belongs on your shelf if you're a fan of the narrow genre in which it falls.

Tekken 3 (PlayStation)

Tekken 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

But other than that, they kept the original arcade mode, and added other modes like beach ball mode, Tekken street mode, etc... There's lots of stuff to do here, and tons of replay value.

Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (PlayStation)

Tenchu: Stealth Assassins review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The view in Tenchu is much like that of Tomb Raider. A 3rd-person back-view. You must creep your way through several levels, while fighting some truly tough bosses.

Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins (PlayStation)

Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

While some players may be tempted to just run out into the open, and run to the end of the level, they'll hardly get any points, and it'll be much harder. It's much more fun to take your time on a level (around 15-20 minutes), and try not to be spotted.

Vagrant Story (PlayStation)

Vagrant Story review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The graphics in Vagrant Story are some of the best I've seen in a while... very smooth and life-like animations, stunning cinemas, phenomenal lighting, detailed polygons... this game's got it all. There is nothing here that's 2D; the characters and environments are all fully 3D.

Vandal Hearts (PlayStation)

Vandal Hearts review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

They're very flat looking, and after playing FFT, it was sometimes hard for me to even see the characters and tell them apart on the battle map. There are no cutscenes, and the graphics are basically the biggest downfall in this game. Boring, sloppy, and not by any means eye-pleasing.

Xenogears (PlayStation)

Xenogears review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The gear battles are similar, and use the same system with weak, medium, and strong attacks. You can still do combos, but each turn you go without doing a combo, your attack level goes up... And the higher the attack level, the better combos you can do.

Mega Man X5 (PlayStation)

Mega Man X5 review (PSX)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Parts of certain levels are a real pain... It took me a dozen tries to get through some areas, but I always managed to find a way of proceeding. It just takes a bit of trial and error sometimes, and that's been a given ever since the first MegaMan game...

Advance Wars (Game Boy Advance)

Advance Wars review (GBA)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

What makes the game good is that there are such a wide variety of ways the enemy can screw you over while you are hunting him down. Some maps have snow, which the enemy always finds a more welcome element than you do.

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (PlayStation 2)

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy review (PS2)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Think Banjo-Kazooie come Mario and Crash Bandicoot, with superior level-design, graphics and control.

NHL 2001 review (PC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Season, of course, is where the meat of the game lies. Pick your team (including the Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jackets expansion teams) and play through their 2000-2001 schedule, attempting to grab the elusive Stanley Cup.

Zone of the Enders (PlayStation 2)

Zone of the Enders review (PS2)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

There are a lot of very well-done features in this game, which should not be overlooked, but also enough cons to lessen the pack of it's punch a great deal.

American McGee's Alice (PC)

American McGee's Alice review (PC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

After finding your first weapon (the Vorpal Blade), it will become quite clear that you're not just in Wonderland for sightseeing. This becomes even more clear when you are attacked by one of the Heart Queen's guards.

Sonic Adventure (Dreamcast)

Sonic Adventure review (DC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

See, the game isn't just about action stages. Taking a note from Mario, Sega decided to include a central hub that collects levels. This area is populated by people and wide open spaces where nothing is happening. To get from one area to the next, Sonic must traverse the extremely dull hub, and perhaps even solve a few puzzles along the way. Even if he happens to be retrieving some power-up, though, this portion of the game is downright dull.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (Game Boy Color)

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I remember when men were men and mushrooms were the villainous scum standing between us and a kiss from the princess. Nintendo’s efforts to reinvigorate the classic with new modes is definitely appreciated, but that shouldn’t make you buy the cartridge. Instead, pick it up if you like the idea of stomping mushrooms on the road. In the end, that’s what it comes down to.

Smashing Drive (GameCube)

Smashing Drive review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The minute you have control of your cab, things start happening. Cars are speeding toward you, jets are landing and taking off, ferries are moving across the water, a giant gorilla is scaling a skyscraper, and so forth. The environments always sport a good level of activity.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Though the world is massive and intricately-designed (and the dungeons too), there are likely to come several points where you find yourself groaning as you realize you have to make a trip back over most of the map. At such times, the map can seem a shade too sparesely populated by worthy opponents, or the number of rocks and holes you encounter may prove irritating.

Pac-Man World 2 (GameCube)

Pac-Man World 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The variety from level to level isn't so huge, but there are 6 different worlds, each of which is quite distinct. You have your usual intro levels, the forest world, the ice world, the fire world, the water world, and the boss world. Each world has 3 or 4 stages and a boss encounter.

Star Fox 64 (Nintendo 64)

Star Fox 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

This game has massive replay value. There are at least two dozen different paths you can take to the final level, meaning the game isn't linear by any means. There are secret routes, multiple endings to each stage, etc...
