Game Reviews

Turok: Evolution – Second Opinion

The Turok: Evolution is an interesting creature. It's story alone chews away at a person's suspension of disbelief—a Native American and a confederate get sucked into an alternate dimension, where dinosaurs have the upper hand on technology and territory. This is probably what would have happened had Mark Twain and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ever collaborated on a novel. Considering the story only has to go as far a setting a premise for the gamer to blow the heads off dinosaur-men, making complete sense doesn't really matter all that much.

Animal Crossing – Review

Anyone expecting bosses and bonus levels should be warned, as Animal Crossing is best described as a simulation of life in a small rural village. But it has many aspects that separate it from the simulation games that we are used to seeing and which make the game a unique experience. Uniqueness is not a good enough reason to play a game, however. Luckily, Animal Crossing is not merely unique, but also highly addictive and entertaining.

Sonic Advance – Review

To the new generation of young gamers, playing a Sonic The Hedgehog title on a Nintendo platform might not seem like anything that extraordinary, for it just represents another side-scrolling title. Yet, for anyone having owned a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis and still retaining a bit of knowledge of the early nineties’ console war, such a thing would have been unthinkable even two years ago.

Golden Sun – Second Opinion

Playing Golden Sun is like returning to your bedroom after being away for years. You'll still know where everything sits, and you can pretty much navigate the place with your eyes shut. Golden Sun presents that type of familiarity, especially with gamers who enjoyed the 16-bit era of role-playing games with the Super NES.

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy – Second Opinion

Deus Ex also earned critical acclaim for the way it seamlessly blended diverse gaming genres into a cohesive and entertaining whole. At first glance, the game appears to be yet another first-person shooter (FPS). Everything is viewed from JCs perspective and theres lots of running around and shooting. However, the game also incorporates an abundance of gameplay elements from role-playing games (RPGs).

Stuntman – Review

It's a nice idea—put the player in the movie. But movies are a passive experience. I felt like my time was wasted—the levels themselves were so frustrating that this delayed reward added injury to insult.

Armored Core 3 – Review

How many times can one person play the same game? At least six, evidently. While I still call myself a fan of FromSoft and their Armored Core series, I think I've finally reached my breaking point. I've taken all five of the previous games to 100% and beyond. Its safe to say that I know these games inside and out, and there's no doubt that I've enjoyed being along for the ride.

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy – Second Opinion

Ah, Jak and Daxter. I have a solid appreciation and more than a handful of fond memories for this disc.

Super Monkey Ball 2 – Review

Straight up—its hard for a sequel, ANY sequel, to score as high or even higher than the original game it was spawned from. We here at GameCritics.com hold ourselves to a higher standard than many, and "more of the same" (regardless of the quality of the original) isnt enough to justify a good score.

Vampire Night – Review

Where Vampire Night differs is the slightly slower paced action on screen. Rather than having enemies clutter the screen and overwhelm players, Vampire Night has a more calculated flow and enemies tend to exhibit more physical reactions and gestures than one might expect from this type of game.
