    What the Hell is going on?

    Project Sylpheed: Arc of Deception

    Rated on March 01, 2008 by Faroon

    What the Hell is going on?

    I found this in Zavvi for £10, and thinking that nothing can be all that bad for £10, and having seen some very positive user reviews, I stumped up the cash. I've spent the last 2 hours "playing" it....

    My childhood is finally revisited - all those afternoons winning cash and prizes.  Makes getting a 360 seem worthwhile!

    Smash T.V.

    Rated on November 25, 2005 by Faroon

    My childhood is finally revisited - all those afternoons winning cash and prizes. Makes getting a 360 seem worthwhile!

    I've been harping on about a re-make of Smash TV for months, if not years, and finally it's (almost) happenned. I have particularly fond memories of afternnons spent thrashing through Super Smash TV ...

    How hard was this game?

    Mad City

    Rated on September 07, 2005 by Faroon

    How hard was this game?

    Another review of an old school game, and another decision of whether to review it by today's standards, or the standards of the time. Well, if we take the former approach.... It's rubbish. Th...

    No XBox live means a graphical reworking of a 10 year old game for 40 quid

    Conker: Live & Reloaded

    No XBox live means a graphical reworking of a 10 year old game for 40 quid

    I don't have XBox live. I *do* have a 2Mb/sec broadband internet connection, but I've just never had the urge to connect my XBox to it. That's not true: I've had the urge, I've just never acted on t...

    Then - the best hockey game out there.  Now - a lughable attempt at football on ice.

    Blades of Steel

    Rated on August 29, 2005 by Faroon

    Then - the best hockey game out there. Now - a lughable attempt at football on ice.

    It's a constant amazement to me how computer games have advanced since I started playing them nearly 20 years ago. Maybe that should be the clue - it's been 20 years. My NES "Toaster-a-like" was my ...

    Could I be Spiderman?  It's more likely than finishing Gambit's Level on this game.  Easily the hardest SNES game ever.

    Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade's Revenge

    Rated on February 15, 2005 by Faroon

    Could I be Spiderman? It's more likely than finishing Gambit's Level on this game. Easily the hardest SNES game ever.

    When I was a litle kid, I wanted to be Superman. The Man of Steel was my hero. Then I realised that there was no way I could ever be Superman; I wasn't actually born on Krypton, Barnsley actually. ...

    You'd have to be the world's biggest Alias fan to get any enjoyment out of this dissapointing licence.

    Alias

    Rated on January 27, 2005 by Faroon

    You'd have to be the world's biggest Alias fan to get any enjoyment out of this dissapointing licence.

    Like most TV/Movie tie-ins, Alias seems to be made for conversion to a video game. Sydney Bristow, a sassy CIA agent works undercover using the latest gadgets, high kicking the bad guys and ultimatel...

    Perhaps the buggiest game I've ever played, but the continuation of Star Wars mythology makes it unmissable.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    Rated on January 26, 2005 by Faroon

    Perhaps the buggiest game I've ever played, but the continuation of Star Wars mythology makes it unmissable.

    To bastardise the classic "This is Spinal Tap", KOTOR turns the value right up to 11. I'm no gaming genius, but I'm no slouch either, and Bioware's first foray into the Star Wars franchise sucked 42 ...
