Atari's Breakout is one of my favorite classic arcade games. It was a pretty simple game, pretty much just a single-player version of Pong but flipped on its side, with the paddle on the bottom of the screen and a wall o... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Everybody involved with the production of this game should be tortured by Jack Bauer to within an inch of their lives.
Like I said in my review of 24: The Game, I'm a huge fan of the 24 TV series. I own every season on DVD, I buy the paperback books, t-shirts, just, tons of stuff. I'm also a huge fan of the PS2, it happens to be my favor... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Fans of the show should definitely pick up 24: The Game. It's solid, fun and faithful to the license.
I believe that 24 is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. I'm such a huge fan of this show, I own every season on DVD, and plenty of 24 merchandise as well. As such, this review may come off as a bit biased. But, th... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
WWE Day of Reckoning was the third WWE game released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Gamecube owners had high hopes for it, because, like Xbox owners they had to suffer through two mediocre wrestling installments while PS2 ow... Read Full Review7 of 7 users found the following review helpful
I still love the PS2. Even though it's not the new system anymore, I play and own more games for the PS2 than any other system. One of my favorite franchises of all time is the Jak & Daxter series. It's a series that's a... Read Full Review14 of 16 users found the following review helpful
Tekken 5 came on the 10th year anniversary of the beginning of the series. This, along with the included Arcade History mode, has gotten quite a few fans to realize how little the series has changed over the years. Wi... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
This game is about as appealing as a terminal illness. It's so bad, I wouldn't even give this game to my worst enemy.
I remember like it was yesterday. Late 2004, I pick up a copy of Official Playstation magazine, and I'm discussing it with a friend of mine. We're both big Tekken fans, so it peaked my interest when I found out that a Te... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Even though it isn't a huge improvement over Tekken 3, Tekken 4 is still an incredible fighting game.
Tekken 4 was one of the first PS2 fighting games I ever played. For that reason, it has a fair amount of sentimental value with me. Other than the original Tekken, Tekken 4 is popularly considered by fans to be one o... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Mortal Kombat Trilogy, released in 1996, was a compilation game of sorts, containing every character that had appeared in the series up to that point. The game was wildly popular, and is still today considered one of the... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Rack your brain for all of the words you can use to describe a great game. I'd say all of them when describing Tekken 3.
Some people might be disappointed to learn that I didn't consider Tekken 2 as the best in the series. Well, don't think I wouldn't provide evidence to back up my opinion. Here's exhibit A: Tekken 3. In my Tekken 2 re... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
I've heard many people claim Tekken 2 is the best game in the series. While I don't agree with that assessment, Tekken 2 does have one distinction. It was probably the biggest improvement over its predecessor. Those w... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Tekken was a revolutionary game for its time. The first real serious competitor to Virtua Fighter in the 3D fighting genre, Tekken also appeased fans of the biggest 2D fighter of all time, Street Fighter. Tekken was fast... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Swinging around the city, the story, the characters, the visuals, it all comes together to make a pretty fun game.
It's hard to say anything bad about a game that makes it this fun to just swing around and explore. The running, the jumping, the web swinging, climbing up the sides of buildings, freefalling from huge heights, and zippi... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie is an unusually good game for a kids' game, not to mention a movie-based game.
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie for the PS2, while obviously being a tie-in to the movie, is also in many ways a sequel to the previous Spongebob game, Battle for Bikini Bottom. It was made by the same company, and the g... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Editor's Note: Opinions expressed do not reflect those of Gamespot, its employees, or its affiliates. A Bug's Life was a pretty good movie. At least, that's what I thought when I saw it, way back in the day. But, its... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Disney/Pixar A Bug's Life
Around 2008, many game companies started to realize that the PS2 still has life in it. So, many of them smartly decided to re-release some of their older games in boxed sets. They usually came with three games. Smackdown... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Very fun first-person shooter with an excellent story, unique presentation, and a few more features that set it apart.
XIII (thirteen), is a first-person shooter released by Ubisoft in 2003. I picked it up for only 2 dollars at Gamestop, which is one of the most inexpensive first-person shooters I've ever seen in a store. With that in mi... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Activision was the first true 3rd party video game developer. Founded by former Atari employees in 1979, they were the first company to make 3rd party games for the Atari 2600. Atari didn't like them because unlike today... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain
Anyone with even a passing interest in wrestling owes it to themselves to track down a copy of this game if you haven't.
Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain was the fifth game in the series, and the last of the "Smackdown" series (the series changed its name to "Smackdown vs. Raw" after this). I just finished and posted my reviews of the previo... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
All of Smackdown: SYM's good qualities come together to make it one of the greatest wrestling games ever made.
WWE Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth was the fourth game in the series. It came out about a year after Smackdown: Just Bring It. Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth can easily be classified as one of the greatest wrestling games ever m... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
it definitely could've been better, but overall, Smackdown: Just Bring It is a worthy addition to the great franchise.
WWF Smackdown: Just Bring It was the first in the series to appear on the Playstation 2. It was also the first PS2 game I ever played. It was a major leap, leaving behind the PS1 in favor of greener pastures. Despite som... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role
WWF Smackdown 2, oddly enough, was the second game in the WWF Smackdown series. It was the direct sequel to WWF Smackdown!, which was released less than a year earlier. Now, I loved the first Smackdown. It was an ext... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Smackdown almost single-handedly revived my interest in gaming. it's still outrageously fun despite its lack of realism.
I admit, it's going to be hard to write this review. Following the 16-bit era, I sort of lost interest in video games. In 1999, I became a pro wrestling fan, and in early 2000, I saw TV ads for the newest WWF game for th... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Doom 3 has a lot of little flaws that annoy me, but ultimately, they just keep the game from perfection.
I was always a fan of the original Doom. It's one of the only games I played on the computer, as most of my gaming was done on consoles. I played the PC version of Doom for countless hours, and I also played several diff... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Let me get this out of the way at the onset. I am a huge wrestling fan. I follow wrestling from all across the world, particularly Japan. But, I am not a TNA fan. I do love their talent. Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Christopher... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Mortal Kombat II for the Game Boy was a great game. With smooth, responsive controls and the perfect level of difficulty, it was a great shrunken down version of MK2 that was a lot of fun to play on the go. With how grea... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Mortal Kombat 3
Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom is a rare treat; A good licensed game for kids and kids at heart.
Despite being older than its target demographic, I love Spongebob Squarepants the TV show. I think the main reason for that is because Spongebob is sort of the heir apparent to Rocko's Modern Life, which was my favorite ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom
SvR '06 deserves a place in the ranks of the Smackdown series, but I was disappointed considering the expectations.
Okay, just to get this out of the way at the onset. I skipped the original Smackdown vs. RAW, so I'll be comparing this game to Here Comes the Pain far more than if I had played the original SvR. Alright, so, WWE Smac... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
