    Simplified, but still offers something worthwhile.

    Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest

    Rated on October 22, 2009 by Diamhea

    Simplified, but still offers something worthwhile.

    Those of your familiar with the Final Fantasy franchise have likely heard about the controversial attributes of this game. Featuring a "dumbed-down" version of the then-budding Final Fantasy formula t...

    Excessive difficulty and an underwhelming storyline mar what is otherwise a solid addition to the X series.

    RockMan X3

    Rated on September 10, 2009 by Diamhea

    Excessive difficulty and an underwhelming storyline mar what is otherwise a solid addition to the X series.

    I remember how excited I was as a youth when Megaman X3 first came out. Being a veteran of the first game in the series, I was beyond pumped to experience another installment of the splendid X series....

    Without a doubt the most impressive of the original Megaman games.

    RockMan 5: Blues no Wana!?

    Rated on September 08, 2009 by Diamhea

    Without a doubt the most impressive of the original Megaman games.

    Although I have memories of playing nearly all of the early Megaman games in my childhood (Except the first Megaman title), none of them stick with me quite as much as Megaman 5. At this point the dev...

    Another excessively hard NES platformer cashing in on a cartoon franchise. Never seen this before!

    The Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak!

    Rated on April 22, 2009 by Diamhea

    Another excessively hard NES platformer cashing in on a cartoon franchise. Never seen this before!

    The Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak is just another of many cartoon-based games pumped out during the early '90s as a veritable cash grab; bringing little to the table regarding innovation. ...

    A great dungeon-crawler for the N64, Gauntlet Legends is a great game to play solo or with friends.

    Gauntlet Legends

    Rated on June 12, 2008 by Diamhea

    A great dungeon-crawler for the N64, Gauntlet Legends is a great game to play solo or with friends.

    Gauntlet Legends is a classic on the N64 system. While it is a fairly direct port from the Arcade version it carves its own little niche and holds its own through hours of play. Hallmark of the Gauntl...

    No more than a history lesson for fans of the preceding games, the control set is the biggest detractor. Average.

    Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima

    Rated on June 11, 2008 by Diamhea

    No more than a history lesson for fans of the preceding games, the control set is the biggest detractor. Average.

    Not quite what its predecessors became, Adventure Island is a fairly sub-par start to the adventures of Mr.Higgins. Veterans of the preceding titles will notice many of the benchmarks of which the lat...

    Another broken top-view shooter for the NES, can be found residing in your local bargain bin.

    Deathbots

    Rated on June 10, 2008 by Diamhea

    Another broken top-view shooter for the NES, can be found residing in your local bargain bin.

    The cover art for this title is extremely misleading. You are blindly thrown into what appears to be a space station of sorts where enemies can see you through walls and mindlessly walk into them and ...

    A straight up no-nonsense shooter from the NES' heydey. Tiger-Heli is a solid, albeit generic experience.

    Tiger-Heli

    Rated on June 09, 2008 by Diamhea

    A straight up no-nonsense shooter from the NES' heydey. Tiger-Heli is a solid, albeit generic experience.

    What is so appealing about Tiger-Heli is its honest, straightforward gameplay. Sure, there are dozens of titles like this on the NES, but Tiger-Heli pushes itself towards the front of the pack with it...

    This relentlessly difficult sequel to Adventure Island 2 will keep you on your toes. Another great installment.

    Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima III

    Rated on June 09, 2008 by Diamhea

    This relentlessly difficult sequel to Adventure Island 2 will keep you on your toes. Another great installment.

    I recently reviewed Adventure Island 2 and garnered it with the honorable score of 9.5. I really, really enjoyed the game and went into AI3 expecting more of the same. You see, graphic and gameplay wi...

    Another subpar side-scroller for the NES. Avoid unless you desire a test in patience and mental stability.

    Captain Silver

    Rated on June 09, 2008 by Diamhea

    Another subpar side-scroller for the NES. Avoid unless you desire a test in patience and mental stability.

    Captain Silver is pretty much a joke, yet this sadly seems to be around par for side-scrolling action games of this time. As usual, no information is parlayed to you upon arrival into the game world, ...

    An obscure Japanese side-scroller with a unique art style and tight gameplay. A solid release.

    Kyatto Ninden Teyandee

    Rated on June 07, 2008 by Diamhea

    An obscure Japanese side-scroller with a unique art style and tight gameplay. A solid release.

    Kyatto Ninden Teyandee, or "Samurai Pizza Cats" is an obscure Japanese platformer with a unique art style and tight gameplay. I really enjoyed my experience with this title, right up there with solid ...

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    Rated on June 06, 2008 by Diamhea

    Embodies many faults in NES games. Avoid if you're looking for any measure of fun.

    This game embodies everything wrong with NES titles of the time. I'll explain, as much as I can, my experience with Roger Rabbit and his wacky world. I start the game up and am thrown into an offic...

    Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima II

    Rated on June 06, 2008 by Diamhea

    A fun, albeit generic, platformer. One of the best in the series.

    Adventure Island II is an underrated game, as is most of the series. Sure, the premise is childish and cliche, and the our hero's name is "Master Higgins". Regardless, what it always boils down to is ...

    The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon

    Rated on June 02, 2008 by Diamhea

    Solstheim awaits. With new quests, equipment, and enemies, Bethesda delivers again. Not to be missed by Morrowind fans.

    Taking place on the frozen wasteland of an island known as Solstheim, Bloodmoon proves itself an amiable expansion pack that yields many more hours of fruitful exploration, albeit only for more advanc...

    RuneScape

    Rated on May 27, 2008 by Diamhea

    Has plenty of faults, but is unfairly bashed due to its fanbase. A solid online experience.

    Runescape has made quite a name for itself, over 7 years after its inception. A guilty pleasure for some, acutely loathed by others; Runescape has grown into one of, if not the biggest free-to-play on...

    RockMan X

    Rated on May 25, 2008 by Diamhea

    The must have Mega Man title for the SNES.

    Without a doubt the most impressive Mega Man title on the Super Nintendo, Mega Man X raised the bar for games of its nature. Released long ago in '93, the game is far beyond its time. Taking advant...

    Graphically a little rough at times, Shadows of The Empire falls just short of classic status on the Nintendo 64.

    Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

    Rated on May 22, 2008 by Diamhea

    Graphically a little rough at times, Shadows of The Empire falls just short of classic status on the Nintendo 64.

    Shadows of The Empire was one of the first games released in the N64's lifecycle, and it shows. The graphics during some of the on-foot sections leave much to be desired. Extremely blocky character mo...

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Game of the Year Edition

    Rated on May 21, 2008 by Diamhea

    Although the game stumbles a bit in the A.I. department, a grand adventure awaits those willing to use their minds.

    Morrowind was Bethesda Softworks biggest accomplishment to date back in 2003. Although several Elder Scrolls games predated Morrowind, none of them would have the profound impact it did on the open-en...
