Guitar Hero – Review

I don't usually like music games. They don't do much for me. I don't like singing along doing karaoke, I don't like sweating and stepping on arrows in Dance Dance Revolution, and I don't like anything that uses bongos… but I like Guitar Hero. Why do I like Guitar Hero when so many other audio-based games leave me cold? In this case, it's all about the controller.

Eyetoy: Kinetic – Review

Like Play and SingStar before it, Kinetic offers us a fresh and, crucially, fun new way to play with our PS2s. It's another casual revolution in game design that's destined to fly under the radar of dyed-in-the-wool gamers as they pore over shots of the next gen consoles' shiny plastic casings.

Donkey Konga: Jungle Beat – Review

I see too much potential in the DK Bongos to brand them a publicity stunt just yet. Hopefully Nintendo does, too.

Donkey Konga: Jungle Beat

Game Description: Donkey Konga is a fun music-based game for a unique kind of gameing experience. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong came across a pair of weird barrels on a deserted beach. They take them to Cranky Kong for an explanation and discover that the barrels are really a legendary musical instrument that plays music when you drum or clap. Now they'll try to become famous musicians and earn fame, fortune and lots of bananas!

Taiko Drum Master – Review

In the world of entertainment media, similar properties come out simultaneously all the time, usually as bandwagon hopefuls trying to cash in on whatever the hot topic of the day is. In 1997, Hollywood gave us Pierce Brosnan and Tommy Lee Jones battling molten lava in both Dante's Peak and the aptly titled Volcano. Today's bookshelves overflow with DaVinci Code wannabees. It happens in modern media all the time, and more so in gaming as it becomes an even larger player in the entertainment industry. Over the past few years, there have been five or six versions of Taiko: Drum Master put out before Namco finally released a North American console version of it in 2004 for the PS2 (around the same time Nintendo/Namco released Donkey Konga for the Gamecube). Having first gone ape playing Donkey Konga, I just had to see how the console version of Taiko stacked up comparatively. The short answer? It doesn't. But that's far too simplistic.
