Game Reviews

The Mark of Kri – Review

The shift in videogames from 2D to 3D has led to the development of many new and interesting concepts, but some old favorites have found that making the jump to the next generation has been tougher than expected. It's arguable that old-school shooters may have had the roughest transition, but in my view developers trying to recreate classic beat-'em-ups like Final Fight or Streets Of Rage are the ones that have consistently stumbled time and time again.

Arc the Lad Collection – Review

In the modern videogame industry, games are almost always created in Japan. Although most games are brought over to America and the other regions of the world, there are always a significant percentage of videogames that never make it out. Frequently, the only option for non-Japanese gamers has been to either buy a Japanese system or modify their American one, and then pay for imports that are largely incomprehensible to those who dont know Japanese.

WWF Smackdown!: Just Bring It – Second Opinion

While I certainly do have my own views concerning what I regard as "art", as would anyone, I do not share Chi's opinion for WWF SmackDown: Just Bring Its "Create-A-Wrestler" mode. I've always viewed these features as nothing more than extras designed to beef up a game. Such options would attract my curiosity for little more than five minutes, browsing around to see what they offered in terms of choice and originality, before I permanently left them alone.

King's Field: The Ancient City – Second Opinion

I personally feel that no review of a King's Field title would be complete without describing the injustice that has plagued the series since its inauspicious beginnings. Brad has done an admirable job of defending the honor of the King's Field games and I'll add that I share in his love of these wonderfully misunderstood gems.

EverGrace – Second Opinion

There's "open-ended," and then there's just confusing, and EverGrace falls into the latter category.

Lethal Skies Elite Pilot: Team SW – Review

Precision is a concept that requires not only patience, but also the right instrument. After all, would a painter be able to create a detailed portrait were he given nothing more than a paint roller? This example not only bears an obvious answer but also depicts a situation where precision is essential. Without its respective tools of the trade, accomplishing such a task would near the impossibility. Such is the dilemma with Lethal Skies for PlayStation 2.

Dragon Warrior VII – Second Opinion

We've all lost people we love. I'm not referring to the spectacular cataclysms of Hollywood fare, but to the more typical losses caused by errors of the heart—mistakes that we were too vain to foresee and too proud to atone. If you could revisit that moment of your past, try to win back that person's trust, would you go?

WipEout Fusion – Review

I'm not a big fan of racing games. I'll admit if I play a good one, but just in terms of personal preference I don't care for the genre. Like most sports games, I never fully understood what the appeal was.

Sky Gunner – Second Opinion

Somewhere in Sky Gunner there's a great shooter—unfortunately, it's buried under a small mountain of technical and design flaws that make the gaming experience seem more like a chore than fun.

Aggressive Inline – Review

I've never partaken in any "extreme" sports, although I enjoy watching these kinds of exhibitions on ESPN. Skateboarding has dominated the "extreme" landscape, thanks to the likes of one Mr. Tony Hawk, and the same can be said for "extreme" video gaming.
