Dead Man's Hand – Review

The first person shooter (FPS) is by far the most maligned genre in all of videogaming (although, to be fair, this is just because there isn't a large "porno" genre… yet). Striving as it does to simulate for people the experience of shooting other people in the face (or groin, depending on the gamer's tastes), the FPS has been accused of everything from desensitizing the youth of America to training a generation to be heartless killing machines.

Dead Man's Hand

Game Description: Dead Man's Hand is a first-person shooter set in the Wild West. You assume the role of El Tejon, a master gunslinger on a mission of vengeance.

For the first time ever, you can experience the best elements of the Western genre, brought straight from the silver screen to the video game system.

Transformers – Review

"Weh-ooh-weh-eeh" is about as close as I can come to describing the sound a Transformer makes when changing shape. "Urrrgh" is the sound a game critic makes when playing a Transformers game that has the potential to be great, yet totally misses the mark.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 – Review

Fighting games are a bit of a strange contradiction, because they really seem like they should be the most accessible genre. After all, just jumping into a single fight is the epitome of the casual gaming experience. Of course, since most fighting games have incredibly steep learning curves, this doesn't work quite the way it should.

Kya: Dark Lineage – Review

Dear Kya, I'm writing this letter to tell you I was wrong, and I'm sorry. I know that I pride myself on being open-minded and I always try to give small games a chance, but I'm only human. Please forgive me for thinking that you were just another generic 3D platformer trying to keep up with some stiff competition. How could I have known?
