Game Reviews

Dragon Valor – Second Opinion

I'm not necessarily against action games that are on the easy side, but the sheer monotony and repetitiveness of Dragon Valor makes it a wholly undesirable experience.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc – Review

Ubi Soft seems to aim its humor at veteran gamers who have played dozens of platforming games in their time. It seems to be their way of making up for gameplay that is mostly standard, if well executed, platforming fare.

Devil May Cry 2 – Review

The most monumental loss is style. Too keep combat from being tedious and boring, Devil May Cry utilized an intricate system that encouraged players to take out enemies in some of the most creative ways seen in games today. Players were rewarded based on how stylishly they dispatched of their enemies.

Master of Orion 3 – Review

The Master Of Orion series has been held in high regard by strategy gamers alongside other turn-based gems like Civilization and Master Of Magic. In each, the player takes control as the leader of a tribe or race from its inception and attempts to guide it to dominance through accepted methods: military, espionage, technology, diplomacy, trade, and population one year, or game-turn, at a time.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven – Second Opinion

The Tenchu series may not contain the best stealth ever devised, but it's certainly near the top. When the first game debuted in 1998, I was blown away by its sneaky gameplay, the freedom to roam rooftops, and bloody assassinations.

Dr. Muto – Review

Admittedly, Dr. Muto looked interesting at first. Stylistically, it could have turned the platform genre upside down. Instead, the game ended up as nothing more than a half-hearted production. It lacked the focus and the daring to take a great concept to its logical conclusion.

Nightcaster – Review

Nightcaster wasn't a sleeper hit—it was just a snoozer. Less a role-playing game (RPG) and more an action brawler in the vein of Sword Of The Berzerk, Nightcaster is an action fantasy in which a mysterious evil has overrun a mythical land, and Arran, our hero, has taken upon himself to purge the world of this evil with an arsenal of deadly magic spells.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Second Opinion

What I found most fascinating about Mike Bracken's review of Buffy The Vampire Slayer is that we both enjoyed the game equally, but for very different reasons.

No One Lives Forever – Review

Personally, I don't believe in the adage that women need to be better than all the men around them in order to be accepted. By having a few chinks in her armour, Cate remains true to life...maybe even a bonafide Female Role Model.

Lunar Legend – Review

Calling Lunar Legend a port is at least somewhat misleading. This recent edition of the game features the same story (roughly), but also adds in a few new wrinkles in hopes of getting the hardcore fans of the series to shell out the cash for yet another version. In this regard, Ubi Soft is only partially successful—the new material seems more an afterthought than anything, and the changes that were made to make the game fit on a standard cartridge format are almost sure to displease the longtime fans of the game.
