Alter Echo – Second Opinion

After I managed to complete the final "rhythm" puzzle in Alter Echo (which requires near super-human hand-eye coordination to pull off), I found myself sitting in front of my TV, PlayStation 2 controller dangling from hand, craving more.

Tak and the Power of JuJu – Review

A sense of humor goes a long way, and Tak and the Power of JuJu is a pretty funny game. Of course, it is a Nickelodeon property so it brings with it the same kind of quirky, off-kilter humor as other Nick 'toons like Rocko's Modern Life and SpongeBob SquarePants. A big difference here though is that Tak doesn't have his own cartoon show (at least not yet). Anyway, it's a good thing that Tak is funny. The actual gameplay left me crying at times, and I really needed a good laugh or two.

Scooby-Doo: Night of 100 Frights

Guide Scooby through 12 huge levels that include a creepy mansion, a spooky cave, a ghostly graveyard, and a perilous pier. Help Scooby search for clues, avoid classic Scooby-Doo monsters, use wacky inventions, eat Scooby Snacks, and gather groovy power-ups. Do you have what it takes to foil the Mastermind’s plan to rid the world of Mystery Inc?

Scooby-Doo: Night of 100 Frights – Review

Nostalgia can be a dangerous thing. It has the power to cripple the critical mind, bathing it in the rainbow-colored reminiscences of a bygone era. Who hasn't remembered a certain movie from their childhood with a fondness that far outweighs the film's actual merit? For me, that movie was Krull, the tale of a brave fantasy warrior battling laser-shooting cyborg slugmen with a giant throwing star called "The Glaive." It's not a very good movie. It's taken me years of introspection and therapy, though, to even be able to admit that.

Alter Echo – Review

All kidding aside, Alter Echo is particularly interesting not only for its wet, squishy levels, but because of its release date. Like the way Hollywood often has competing films with similar content, Alter Echo hit the streets just after Capcom's Chaos Legion this past August.

Alter Echo

Game Description: Multiplast is the most important substance in the Universe because rare individuals called Shapers can physically shape it into all sorts of bio-machines. You play Nevin, a Shaper who works for one of the many Corporations that mine Multiplast. You’re not just any Shaper—you can also Time Dilate, something most Shapers can’t do. Your employers have sent you to Proteus because a Shaper named Paavo has created a new form of Plast and it’s gotten out of control. The new Plast (called Xenoplast) has become self-aware. It knows that humanity plans to exploit it and it doesn’t want to suffer that fate. To make matters worse, it’s figured out a way to retaliate. The last thing you wanted was to have to save humanity, but hey—if you don’t do it, no one else will.
