EverGrace – Review

EverGrace was the only FromSoft title that had managed to consistently slip past my radar, and I was glad to see it on my review schedule after all this time. However, my initial joy was soon replaced by a fairly sizable amount of disappointment. Its unavoidable that even the best studios will make a misstep now and then, but with that possibility becoming a reality, my world has been shaken.

Headhunter – Review

If someone were to ask what the "Holy Grail" of videogames might be, one likely answer would be "A perfect blending of Hollywood storytelling with the player interaction of Silicon Valley." Like the Grail itself, this goal is currently (and may always be) out of reach. Developers made several attempts over the years, meeting with varying degrees of success.

Spider-Man: The Movie – Review

The transitional relationship between movies and video games can often be compared to that of oil and water. One simply doesnt mix in the other. Movie-based games often hide behind the illusion of presenting players with the chance to relive the motion picture story through the eyes of the protagonist. In most cases, however, the character is guided through a distorted version of the film that is barely recognizable in a game that seems to have been neglected in its production. Before I even started playing Spider-Man: The Movie, it already had two factors going against it—the first being that it is based upon a film. To this day I can still remember the movie-based atrocities released during the Super Nintendo/Genesis era that did little more than provide gamers with some horrendous gaming experiences. The other stereotype I blindly branded Spider-Man with was the expectation of playing nothing more than an ordinary 3-D beat em up. After all, the last Spider-Man game I played was on a 16-Bit console in which there was little else to do other than line up villains for beatings. To my surprise, Activisions take on Spideys movie proves that an exception to the rule is always possible.

Castlevania (Nintendo 64) – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes

Castlevania (Nintendo 64)

Game Description: Castlevania is a bloody-good 3D vampire-hunting experience that adventure fans won't want to miss. You take the role of either the whip-toting Reinhardt Schneider or Carrie Fernandez, a young girl with magical powers. Both characters have separate (though similar) storylines, complete with entirely different endings and a couple of stages that are exclusive to each character's quest. The game is set to a real-time clock function, so while slicing and dicing the bad guys players need to be aware of the time, because it wouldn't do to be caught somewhere dangerous after dark.

Castlevania (Nintendo 64) – Review

Certain transitions simply arent meant to succeed. Whether it is a book being adapted for the big screen, a singer tempting fate in acting or vice-versa, there will always be cases where the newly created product or effect will tarnish the initial reputation. As the Playstation and Nintendo 64 gradually left the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo to rest in peace, it became a common practice to take video game series, which had made themselves well known on 8 and 16-Bit systems, and to create three dimensional sequels for them. Among these sequels can be found highly successful titles such as Super Mario 64 or The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. This, however, isnt to say that every sequel to bring a series in the third dimension has been well received. When Konami followed in this trend, it did so by introducing, among others, its whip slashing, vampire hunting line of games known as Castlevania. The result, Castlevania 64, shows that the series is better off remaining a two-dimensional side-scroller.
