Game Reviews

Tekken 4 – Review

Among the current contenders for the 3D fighting game crown, nearly every game is a kind of proof that this statement is true. Generally, the fighting genre has been suffering from a malaise of small innovation and unwillingness to change proven formulas. In turn, this has caused a slump in the number of games being released and a dwindling interest in what was once a hot and exciting genre.

Sub Rebellion – Review

Fans who have been starved for either submarine games or shooters are in for a real treat. Neither genre has been especially plentiful in the last few years, so when a game comes along that combines the best of both worlds, its a rare opportunity that needs to be savored. Being most famous for diabolically difficult shooters such as the cult classic R-Type series, developer Irem now brings its own brand of finger-blistering action 20,000 leagues under the sea.

Star Fox Adventures – Second Opinion

As Caleb points out, the game that eventually came to be known as Star Fox Adventures went through a rather lengthy, convoluted and dramatic development period. When a game treads an incredibly rocky path to retail like this one did, the end product is usually a cobbled patchwork being put on shelves to recoup costs, i.e.- not a very good game. Quite the opposite in this case. In fact, I can honestly say that I was surprised at the level of quality and polish that Star Fox Adventures possesses.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Review

As a game, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is incredibly faithful to the show it is based on. The sarcastic humor, tone, and atmosphere of the program are all faithfully recreated. The original castwith the exception of Sarah Michelle Gellar (who plays Buffy)has provided their voices for the game, giving the title the feel of the show.

Star Fox Adventures – Review

Hello Star Fox Adventures, a.k.a Star Fox Adventures: Dinosaur Planet, a.k.a. Dinosaur Planet. We've been expecting you for quite some time. What has it been, two, maybe three years since you first showed yourself on the Nintendo 64? How many delays has it been since moving over to the GameCube? Three, perhaps four? You've grown up rather nice over the years. Quite a glossy shine you have on your graphics and polished gameplay to boot.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader – Second Opinion

Caleb's Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II review brings up several valid points in regards to the titles beautiful graphics, lack of story and unoriginal missions. While I agree with his assessment for the most part, I feel a few points weren't stressed enough or overlooked.

Prisoner of War – Review

Prisoner Of War takes an ambitious approach to a unique concept and comes out with mixed but mostly effective results

Animal Crossing – Second Opinion

In Thom's review above, he touched upon the fact that Animal Crossing is structured to be played for about an hour or two instead of the longer, sometimes marathon sessions that other games inspire. This type of slower, more leisurely game design is a very new way of thinking in our field, but seems to be establishing a firm foothold.

Kingdom Hearts Review

Kingdom Hearts Screenshot

Kingdom Hearts was formally announced at the Electronics Entertainment Expo of 2000, which I was fortunate enough to attend. Most convention-goers (myself included) waiting in the mile-long line for the preview left stunned, amazed, or a quivering mixture of both. The game that was shown represented nothing less than a completely unexpected merger of two colossal forces, two seemingly invulnerable icons, each at the summits of their respective media.

Enclave – Second Opinion

There isnt much to add to Mikes review. He pegged all of the major problems and few highpoints Enclave showcases. Whether its the shoddy save and combat systems or the extreme difficulty, I agree with him. There are a couple things that I feel deserve further attention.
