Lost Kingdoms II – Review

At first glance, the game appears identical to the first, which would have been a very welcome thing in my opinion due to the original's short playtime. However, this is not the case. Numerous changes to the formula have been made, and it pains me to say that almost all of them are poor ones. Lost Kingdoms II retains some appeal, though it's a clearly inferior sequel in several ways.

Lost Kingdoms II – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Violence

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.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

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.

Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 (Game Boy Advance) – Review

Extreme sports have never really made a mark on me. Whenever such competitions would air on television, it wouldnt take long before I decided to switch the channel. Considering this, it shouldnt be surprising to learn that my experience in playing the video game equivalent has consisted of spending a few minutes on different occasions trying out a Tony Hawks Pro Skater title on demonstration in a store.

Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions – Second Opinion

Wreckless reminds me of lesser Saturday Night Live spin-off movies like Meet Pat and Stuart Saves His Family. Often, what makes for a humorous gag in small doses lacks the depth to sustain itself for a full-length feature. Wreckless is like the driving sequences from Grand Theft Auto III, disembodied and turned into a gimmicky full-length game. While that is admittedly over simplifying things a bit, Wreckless is proof that some concepts have their limits.

Lost Kingdoms – Review

Lost Kingdoms is a fairly unique third-person action game, with the twist being that the main character, Katia, uses magically summoned creatures as weapons. The GameCube's analog stick handles her free movement, and the yellow C-stick adjusts the camera.
