The spiritual successor to Konami's classic arcade games like TMNT, Simpsons and X-Men, and a true modern classic.
Let me get this out of the way off the bat: Castle Crashers is an instant classic that will stand up against the test of time and is easily worth a full retail price against top flight titles. That ...
Dr. Mario Online RX
Dr. Mario is back better than ever and yet just like old times.
Wii Ware is a great service for smaller publishers and gamers alike in that its a way to get games that might not otherwise secure publishers let alone receive shelf space, and instead allows instant ...
Ambitious back when that wasn't overly risky.
Nowadays EA is known as being the biggest or baddest or worst or whatever angle you want to take on it, but bottom line they are the A-list of the A-list as far as gaming companies. Its the moves the...
Major League Eating: The Game
Surprisingly deep and strategic given what it is!
OK, so first they announce Major League Eating for the Wii. Then its WiiWare. This was pretty stunning as WiiWare seemed to be building as the place for either revamped classics like Dr. Mario or fo...
The Adventures of Batman & Robin
Hugely underrated and absolutely amazing for the era.
The mid-1990s saw the classic Nintendo and Sega systems outpowered by the new Super Nintendo and Genesis systems, but the machines were still relatively simplistic in that gameplay was key, only now t...
Beneath a Steel Sky
One of the last old-school adventure games of that era.
Adventure games dominated the PC because, lets face it, you couldn't do them on the consoles of old, the NES or Super NES, Sega Master System, Genesis, etc, and not even on the latter systems either l...
Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
More an experience than a game in the truest sense, but still a must to play.
King Kong is a thrilling amazing experience of a game, and there's something that needs to be said off the bat: there'd no on screen indicators of health or ammo or anything. This will throw some of...
An interactive cinematic masterpiece.
They don't make games like Indigo Prophecy. They should. This game has some of the best acting, characters, story, emotion, and heart, not to mention direction, cinematic feel, music and control, ev...
Spider-Man: The Movie
It looks right, it feels right, it plays right, its outclassed by 2.
As far as movie games go, Spider-Man is quite good. The usual expanding on the plot to get more gameplay mileage is here of course, and we've got some core film members reprising their roles, but ove...
WWE Wrestlemania X8
Saddled with a few small flaws and one huge one, this has aged horrendously.
I was at WrestleMania X8 in Toronto. Its still my favourite to this day. I was amped for the Gamecube game since the roster at the time looked pretty solid. It almost delivered. The game looks g...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
Amazing graphics can't overcome the intense difficulty.
I wanted to like this game so very much, eager to try the stealth genre for the first time after hearing so many amazing things about it. Though it has some amazing graphics and great kills, the game...
Unique and awesome.
This game is hard to describe, but "great, fantastic, unique" all work. You start off as an imprisoned lunatic with no idea of what's going on. You slowly learn who you are and why you're ...
Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30 (Platinum)
Awesome potential with a brilliant mechanic that's seriously flawed thanks to that mechanic not working.
I love WWII games. Not sure why, but they just have the right blend of intensity and action that really appeals to me. One of the series I was most interested in when I got a PlayStation 2 was the B...
Medal of Honor: Rising Sun
It's hard to believe this came AFTER Frontline.
Medal of Honor Frontline was the first game I bought for my Gamecube. The opening level solidified me on this console generation, my having skipped the N64 and dedicated to the PC for a good decade. ...
Dead to Rights II
Brutal. In good ways and bad.
Dead to Rights was one of the best action games on the Gamecube. Dead to Rights II wasn't released on that system. This was a travesty, but after playing it on the PS2, perhaps it was for the best. ...
Dead to Rights
This game kicks ass. I only wish it would have kicked even more.
Sporting easily one of the best anti-heroes in a long while, Dead to Rights comes in kicking ass from the opening cinematic, with an absolutely balls to the wall hero and the best sidekick in a long t...
Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure
Fantastic production with great action and style.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd like Getting Up. I'm not interested in the street art culture, hip hop, rap, or any of that. This game sucked me in with its fantastic music (both soundtra...
True Crime: Streets of LA
It's hard to fault a game for trying too hard, but...
True Crime is a Grand Theft Auto-style game. These are becoming a genre all their own, but anything not GTA immediately has to prove it isn't a GTA clone. Few have been able to, and True Crime proba...
Rise to Honour
Cinematic, literally insane action, unique control and a cliche story, the most frustrating kind of fun you can have.
Rise to Honor looks like a kick-ass Jet Li action movie. It also IS one, since this game is beyond cinematic with awesome moments ripped right out of Hong Kong's best and worst. You'd be hardpressed...
One of the awesomest easy games out there.
OK so most movie games suck, but as of late there's been some nice surprises, and almost all of them look DAMN good. EA's track record is quite good actually, with the Lord of the Rings games and 007...
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
CSI has the style and feel, but unfortunately has to hold you by the hand to achieve it.
As someone who thought slow-mo cool-music montages of people scraping things and looking into microscopes was ridiculous, I ended up hooked on CSI during its syndication on Spike thanks to accessible ...
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow
A promising game that instead feels like an endless tutorial.
Gamers missed out in 2003 when everyone overlooked the potential powerhouse franchise that Pirates Of The Caribbean would become, but that's because nobody expected it to not only be that popular and ...
As far as movie games go, this is one of the better ones, as the action holds up so well it doesn't need the license.
Movie games used to always suck. Then they started being able to add gameplay innovations that tie into the specifics from the movie, and... then they still sucked. Still, some sneak through, but t...
A criminally underrated classic of its time.
Ultimate Wizard was a Jumpman clone, but it became so much more than that. This game has innovated level design like the Jumpman series, and yet added magic as you now controlled a wizard who had to ...
UFC 2 Tapout Final Spec.
Long out of date and yet still compelling, and very playable 5 years after release.
UFC Throwdown was a 2002 Gamecube title from Crave, and generally regarded as one of the better UFC games out there, and aside from the PS2's Pride FC, that makes it one of the better mixed martial ar...
A great late entry into the PS2 action catalogue, well worth the time and a steal at the bargain price.
Considering it was released late in the PlayStation 2's lifespan, even the lowest expectations for a title like Rogue Trooper are pretty high. Add the fact that its a third person shooter and it runs ...
Aside from the ending that leaves you wanting so much more, this game is amazing in every way.
Gun is a third-person adventure game which, as the title implies, has you shooting quite a bit, but I'd refrain from calling it a shooter since there's stealth, hand-to-hand and other elements that ma...
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2
A hunting game with a story mode that replaces the hunting aspect, creating a major missed opportunity.
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2 is a hunting game with a survival/action aspect, where the animals aren't just docile deer that run away. Instead the lions, pumas, bears, and even crocodiles and a strange...
