Kokuga review

Kokuga review

Slow and steady.

There's really only one significant niche that would find enjoyment from a title like this. That, to the ire of major publishers around the world, is not a mark against the game's favor, but the short of the matter is that unending, unrelenting challenge only appeals to a small minority. The likes of whom... read more

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team review

A sweet dream or a snooze?

When Super Mario RPG came out to critical and commercial success, Nintendo had a problem. Because its relationship with co-developer Squaresoft was strained for sticking with cartridges during the days of the N64, a sequel of sorts would be difficult to make. However, the split resulted in two new Mario RPG... read more

DuckTales: Remastered review

Did this Tale of Daring-Do need to be told again?

Most people who play video games are aware of an unfortunate fact. Like a lot of other merchandise, most games that are based on a license tend to... well, suck. So it came as a pleasant surprise in the days of the NES to find quite a few good games based on Disney properties, many developed by Capcom. Of... read more

Star Wars Pinball review

Star Wars Pinball review

No scum or villainy here.

Pinball games occupy a strange non-genre of virtual copies to antiquated experiences. Many of us look to pinball as a symbol of yesterday's primitive entertainment, vanquished by our new and improved games. The world simply doesn't need to flick around a metal ball now that we have high def shaders and force... read more

Crash City Mayhem review

Crash City Mayhem review

Massive mayhem leads to a quick burnout.

At some point, every kid has probably imagined being a super cool spy. Wearing expensive suits featuring all the greatest high tech gadgetry and, of course, driving a tricked out spy car.

EarthBound review

Say Fuzzy Pickles!

Releasing near the end of the Super Nintendo's life, EarthBound could be seen as a right game being released at the wrong time... at least in the western market. Not only was the game released three years before Final Fantasy 7 would make the genre 'cool' for console gamers, but it was also one of the first... read more
