Game Reviews

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven – Second Opinion

The Tenchu series may not contain the best stealth ever devised, but it's certainly near the top. When the first game debuted in 1998, I was blown away by its sneaky gameplay, the freedom to roam rooftops, and bloody assassinations.

Dr. Muto – Review

Admittedly, Dr. Muto looked interesting at first. Stylistically, it could have turned the platform genre upside down. Instead, the game ended up as nothing more than a half-hearted production. It lacked the focus and the daring to take a great concept to its logical conclusion.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Second Opinion

What I found most fascinating about Mike Bracken's review of Buffy The Vampire Slayer is that we both enjoyed the game equally, but for very different reasons.

Apex – Review

The racing genre has traditionally been one of the more staid and basic genres of videogames. Going from track to track, players work on buying new cars, upgrading the cars they already have and winning various competitions. It's a system that pretty much ignores the emotive and narrative aspects of videogames, usually concentrating on gameplay and graphics above all else. Apex, the new driving game being marketed under Infogrames' Atari label, represents an attempted step in a promising new direction for the driving genre by offering up more than just driving.

No One Lives Forever – Review

Personally, I don't believe in the adage that women need to be better than all the men around them in order to be accepted. By having a few chinks in her armour, Cate remains true to life...maybe even a bonafide Female Role Model.

Lunar Legend – Review

Calling Lunar Legend a port is at least somewhat misleading. This recent edition of the game features the same story (roughly), but also adds in a few new wrinkles in hopes of getting the hardcore fans of the series to shell out the cash for yet another version. In this regard, Ubi Soft is only partially successful—the new material seems more an afterthought than anything, and the changes that were made to make the game fit on a standard cartridge format are almost sure to displease the longtime fans of the game.

Haven: Call Of The King – Review

It's disappointing to see such an ambitious game unable to evolve into something greater than the sum of its parts.

Haven: Call Of The King – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Second Opinion

Well, it sure doesn't look that way at first, does it? To be blunt, the aesthetics of The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker are awe-inspiring. The decision to go with a cel-shaded style was widely and roundly derided by a videogame community increasingly enamored of 'realistic' graphics, but it winds up making this title truly special.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven – Review

Back in '98 there was what could only be described as a "stealth boom." Three games came out that year that, apparently by coincidence, all featured sneaking as their main gameplay and subsequently ushered in the age of stealth gaming.
