Would only recommend to those who want the 1000 points, not kids OR fans of the Ninja Turtles.
I don't know how many people who would look at this and actually want to play it since it's based on a "kid's movie" and it's in no way at all like the TMNT of yore. Now, I'm not old by any means but ...
It's truly difficult to find anything wrong with this game besides the water = death thing.
Ok, so I beat Assassin's Creed just now, a few days after my mother who's going for the 1000 points. And I gotta say... this game is near perfect. I don't like saying things like that because I don't ...
Samurai Dou 2: Way of the Samurai 2
Not as good as the first, but still addictive and immersive.
I found it odd that the first Way of the Samurai played and looked better than this installment, but it didn't prevent me from having fun with it. Just like the first, you play a stray samurai who wan...
Final Fantasy Tactics: Shishi Sensou
A laggy and lossy copy of an otherwise perfect game.
Final Fantasy Tactics is perfect, for the PS1 at the very least. For its time, it was visually stunning and the music by Hitoshi Sakimoto kicked monumental amounts of ass, the story was top notch and ...
Great arcade shmup fun, but nothing new to get excited about.
Ahhh, Raiden III. Been a long time and I didn't know it was coming stateside so I imported it. Turns out, it's really not as much as I was expecting. I mean, it's more of the same, which is good, but ...
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War
An epic experience with the great gameplay you've come to expect from the series... Just like the last one...
Ace Combat Zero is kind of like the Dynasty/Samurai Warriors games that stay the same with every iteration but nothing truly changes with the gameplay or mission structure, which burns most players. B...
One very interesting idea turned into 3 different but equally as disappointing parts. Add bad voice acting and voila!
Th3 Plan is one of those cheap but promising things where you think some sleeper hits are gonna come out in the PS2's last glorious days and they'll prove to be at least a few hours of fun but proves ...
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Not as awesome as the PS1 GitS, but this game is a Stand Alone success in its own right.
Like Blood Will Tell and Bujingai, we've got a real gem here in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex underneath the dirty layer that most reviewers can't see past. Yeah, it's not Galerians: Advance...
Simple 2000 Ultimate Vol. 28: Bousou! Kenka Grand Prix, Drive to Survive
Straight up, this game is garbage.
There are some truly bad games in the world. Black Buccaneer. AMF Xtreme Bowling. Kingdom Hearts. Yes, these are bad but can Drive to Survive possibly be worse? Yes, yes it can. Do not attempt to play...
Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge
Not much but at least it isn't Horsez.
I don't know why exactly, but I've found it necessary to try to play as many horse games as possible. So, when I heard this game was coming out, I knew I was going to have to play it even if it was as...
Pippa Funnell: Take the Reins
Horsez (with a z) is so terrible, it made me vomit blood until I could see forever.
Ok, so I played some Horsez the other day and I refused to turn it off until I'd seen enough of it because these are the things I do to myself when I get lonely, I guess. But I'm alive and, as such, I...
Strange and wacky as hell, Incredible Crisis is a really fun ride while it lasts.
Incredible Crisis is a tale about an entire family thrown into chaos on their way home from work and school by way of aliens, spies, and bank robbers. There are no words that can help make sense of th...
It's good to be the king.
If you're like me and you love yourself a little bit of the Burger King, you owe it to yourself to play Sneak King. Go on, you deserve it. You see, Sneak King isn't just a video-game promotion for a f...
Final Fantasy XII
Turn-based battle is dead, long live turn-based battle! Best FF of all time, hands down.
Now, before you flame me for saying it's the best Final Fantasy ever, please understand that I have played FF games before VII. VII was great, I'm alright with X, X-2 had more Rikku but sucked, and my...
Elite Beat Agents
Save the world and travel through time with the magic of song!
Finally, a really good rhythm game for the DS. From the moment you turn on the game, you're thrown into its world, using your stylus to tap, drag, and spin in time with the music... why? Because you a...
For lovers of hard-as-hell games and sheer badassery, Fist of the North Surfin' USA's the game for you.
You've all seen the Fist of the North Star post-apocalyptic setting with comedic fighting to surf music. Admit it, you loved it too, didn't you? Well, I'm here to say that the whole game is just as st...
GTA: Venezuela - Really, there's no reason to play this if you have Mercenaries.
Just Cause... I didn't expect it to be stellar but I really wasn't prepared for it to suck as much as it does. The travel takes too long, the story's run-of-the-mill, the graphics aren't very good, bu...
NRA Gun Club
A good idea on paper, think America's Army without the fun. Or any presentation at all, really.
With the NRA carrying on about how guns don't kill people, people kill people, and Jack Thompsons all around ragging on the gamer public for turning to games like GTA instead of something more instruc...
Fun to play either to kill time or to practice your basic cooking knowledge. Simple and lots of fun. Al dente or die!
Finally a game that makes full use of the touch screen and the stylus that's a blast to play! Cooking Mama plays out in cooking-based minigames, using your stylus as a mutli-purpose culinary tool. You...
Ryuu ga Gotoku
One great game. The long wait and hype built up to one supreme experience that ~isn't~ GTA or Shenmue, guys.
Yakuza's a game for the Kinji Fukasaku fan in all of us! See, I love yakuza movies. Beat Takeshi, Fukasaku, lots of Miike movies. Love 'em. When I first heard of this game, I wanted to play it immedia...
Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run
007:EoN, now with worse graphics, less decent voiceover, stiff controls, and other disappointing hits from the 80's!
If you like 007: Everything or Nothing and The Rock, you'll probably waste your time on this game, but I think you'd be better off just watching The Scorpion King again. The easiest way to summarize t...
Yeah, sure, the game's just about bouncing breasts and "compromising" positions, but it's also pretty fun.
Ohhh, Konami. You never cease to amaze me. A firefighting 3rd person shooter with a hollywood story, the greatest RPG series of all time, Kojima always trying to out-fanservice himself, an RE-killer, ...
World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer - All In
Finally a decent poker game for the PS2. A good teaching tool with some style and substance.
I used to play poker when I was young but it wasn't like how it's played everywhere by everyone today. Back in the day, only knowing Five Card Draw was enough - you didn't need a Ph.D in poker. Well, ...
Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII
A cliche-laden FF7 fanfic about pretty people who save the world from futuristic nazis. Not good, but not bad.
I promise my intro rant will be short. Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII is named such in the same way that The Spirits Within was dubbed a Final Fantasy movie, just a way to tie in and make some m...
Pirates: Legend of the Black Buccaneer
I love pirates as much as the next guy, maybe even more, but this game is just bad.
This game wasn't covered very well by any sites, so I came into this in much the same way many did: Pirates! More pirate games for the PS2 is yay! then I finally got to play it... and no... no, this g...
The Typing of the Dead
You type to save the world from the undead. Yes!
Horrible voice acting, badly acted campy horror, birds and zombies with claws that attck you unless you TYPE quickly and accurately enough. Some might say this is the best game ever. I don't, simply b...
Firefighter F.D. 18
Looks, sounds, and feels like an arcade game. Wet and wild fun until the fire dies out.
The premise alone should be a reason to pick this up and give it a test drive but it would've been so much better if the gameplay weren't so sluggish. You play one of the city's bravest in Firefighter...
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
The best adventure/rpg-styled Castlevania ever. The PS2 versions would've done well to learn from this.
Don't get me wrong, the 2D platform whip-crazy stage based Castlevanias are great. In fact, Castlevania IV is beyond awesomeness. However, when Konami decided to do adventure platform or RPG versions ...
A decent racing game that's a blast to play. A must-play for Saturn owners.
Cyber Speedway was obscure even when it had just come out, it seems. I must've introduced this baby to a bunch of people and the response was not suprising: this game is fun. The controls took you a m...
Dennou Senki Virtual-On: Marz
Definitely not as good as any of the Saturn or Arcade installments. Left me with a bad aftertaste.
I'm a big fan of the original Virtual On for the Saturn. I have fond memories of playing it in the arcade with a broken wrist using the two sticks. So when I noticed this staring at me in a Gamestop, ...
ChuChu Rocket! (w/Controller)
A classic time-waster, awesome multiplayer game, and a quirky crazy good time.
If you've seen the commercial and/or have played this game once before, my review could simplified to just "Chu Chu Rocket is good." Chu Chu Rocket is damn good. The point of the game is simple. Get a...
SaGa Frontier (PSOne Books)
Play this game for its cool music and visuals and not for its 7 rushed stories, lack of guidance, or whacked gameplay.
SaGa Frontier isn't a BAD game, persay, but it's not a very good one... or at least, that's only because I can't play half of it without needing a strategy guide. You see, people complained about Meta...
Genso Suikoden (PlayStation the Best)
The first in the best RPG series ever and an ~amazing~ game, no matter how old it is. Ignore any ignorant 6.5 reviews.
Suikoden. Where do I begin? I can’t say it’s the best RPG I’ve ever played even though it’s in the best RPG series I can name, but Suikoden is the best gaming experience I’ve ever had. To this day, th...
AMF Xtreme Bowling
This game is not good. This game is very bad.
Ok, so I disco bowled once with my bad hand because my good one was in a full-arm cast, right, and I sucked of course. However, there was a chance of me doing better than abysmal because I could move ...
Ruff Trigger: The Vanocore Conspiracy
Not worth the $20. Yes, even if you're a furry, it's not worth the $20.
Ok, so I'll keep this one short as I've got things to do, which include not playing this. I don't know, I suppose there are worse ways to spend your money but this game is ~not~ worth your crispy new ...
Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo
Blood Will Tell. Is too damn good.
I remember PSM's review of this game... "Crap Will Tell." I laughed it off and moved on. Fast forward a year and a half later, I see this game for cheap and I decide "why not try it out?" After a good...
Culdcept II Expansion (PlayStation 2 the Best)
Card battling nerds and real estate tycoons of the world, unite and fight!
I'm not big on strategy games. I have to think when I play them and I'm a big Mercenaries fan, you see. I've tried Yu-gi-oh before but it turned into a collector's game rather than something you reall...
Sid Meier's Pirates!
Fan of the old Apple diskette, fan of the new Xbox version. Sid Meier is a god for remaking this game!
When I was a little kid and I'd started playing video games, sure I had the 3-in-1 cart for Mario/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet (yeah, baby, the 3-in-1, what what!) and I loved it but my first syst...
Devil May Cry 3
Hard but fun, a well-written prequel with cool characters. A Ryuhei Kitamura movie that you can play.
Ok, so this game is hard as hell. It's a blast to play, the music is rocking, the characters are badass, and it doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's just so hard - not just anyone can pick this...
Jade Empire: Hisui no Teikoku
Gorgeous, fun, detailed, cool battles, and lengthy - Definitely one of the best games of this year.
Ahh, Jade Empire. I didn't know what to expect when people said "this game is Kotor in ancient China" but I knew the result would be interesting. This game's soundtrack is what might be the first t...
