Game Reviews

Mega Man X6 – Review

The simplicity of some of these games is probably what makes them so memorable. With the Mega Man series, Capcom offered players some of the best platformers of their time, all the while avoiding complicated aspects.

State Of Emergency – Review

Given Rockstar's recent list of titles (Grand Theft Auto III, Max Payne and Smuggler's Run 2) and its latest PlayStation 2 venture, State Of Emergency, the company could be accused of poisoning the minds of young generations with videogames focusing on criminal and deviant behavior. While it may not be subject to legal "bad tendency," State Of Emergency outlines another kind of bad tendency among game developers: the tendency to stick over-the-top violence into videogames, for lack of more creative concepts.

Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat – Review

Looking at recent releases, there must have been some kind of competition among game developers to release B-class adventure games starring female characters. Two discs with cheesy titles hit shelves within a month of each other, and they're very similar in a lot of ways. While Drakan: The Ancients' Gate was first to stores, Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat was right on its heels.

Ecks Versus Sever – Review

Undoubtedly, Ecks Versus Sever is a very competent FPS despite being hampered by a very tiny view screen, barely serviceable controls, and limited 3-D rendering hardware. It has a uniquely conceived design premise based on the two playable perspectives of its opposing spy protagonists, Ecks (emotionally-scared father where the death of his family continues to haunt him) and Sever (heartless femme fatale who born and raised to kill).

Golden Sun – Review

While Role-Playing Games (RPGs) may have gained mainstream acceptance during the 32-bit era of gaming, most serious fans of the genre would agree that the best games invariably came into existence on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). For a number of years, the SNES was the RPG fan's system of choice—boasting a line-up of games that are still considered classic in this age of 3-D polygons and life-like graphics. Considering that the Game Boy Advance is essentially a portable version of the SNES, it's probably no surprise to learn it's also developing a reputation as a veritable haven for excellent RPGs. With ports of older SNES titles such as Capcom's Breath Of Fire series and entirely new creations such as Golden Sun, this genre is already well represented on the fledgling handheld.

WWF Smackdown! 2: Know Your Role – Second Opinion

Well, after reading Dale's review and considering some of his points, I must admit that I had a little change of heart and felt compelled to lower my rating on Smackdown 2. The game definitely has major issues that I needed to emphasize more.

WWF Smackdown! 2: Know Your Role – Review

Its no secret that developers dont have the best track record when it comes to producing videogame sequels. Some will attack the problems that plagued the original in a deliberate attempt to improve upon the playing experience. The rest will just add the prerequisite bells and whistles fans are demanding without giving much thought to how the entire package will fit together. That appears to be the case with Yukes sophomore WWF release, WWF Smackdown! 2: Know Your Role.

Maximo: Ghosts To Glory – Second Opinion

After seventeen years of playing videogames, I somehow got it into my head that I was getting better at them. It turns out the games were just getting easier and Capcom's latest PlayStation2 title, Maximo: Ghosts To Glory, helped me realize that. I didn't expect much out of the ordinary when starting the game.

Fatal Frame – Review

Fatal Frame is a scary and original horror experience. While not a great game, it does deliver on its promise to explore the survival-horror genre from a fresh perspective.

Gitaroo Man – Review

It's only March, and it's already been a great season for diverse gamers. For proof, we need look no further than the niche genre of music gaming. For a category of entertainment that had formerly been labeled too Japanese for western tastes, music games seem to be here to stay. It's funny to look back and see that such a thing was almost unthinkable even as recently as five years ago.
