Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels
Outstanding in its day
I am going to review based on memories of when I last played it. The intro sequence sets the pace with what can only be described as the best FMV produced in its day. On one side you have Blood Angel...
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08
Idiots will say its the best golf game ever
I finally made the decision to upgrade my TW 06 to a next gen version. Wow the graphics are cool & the sound is great, sadly thats about it. Nothing much else has been improved here. Shot shaping ...
Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000
A no nonsense serious fighter
I truly believe that this is better than Capcom VS SNK 2. The only problem is the controls! but I'll back to that. The game brings together the best from Capcom and SNK fighters through the years. ...
Guilty Gear X (DriKore)
Sammy Studios hits gold
I always enjoyed the Guilty Gear series and considering 2D beat em ups were running low on the Dreamcast I had to get this to try it out. I was pleasantly suprised that it improves on originals. The g...
NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
As good as Neo Geo fighters can get on PS2
I recently started investing in Neo Geo ports to the PS2. Ive always been a streetfighter fan and many of these conversions play terribly on the PS2. Nearly all the King of Fighters (except NeoWave) w...
WWE Day of Reckoning 2
Short term enjoyment
I got this in the bargain bin and dont regret it one bit. I have never been a fan of Yukes (developers) because the smackdowns seemed unpolished and too fast to realistically capture wresting tending ...
Bare Knuckle II: Shitou no Chinkon Uta
Awesome on every level
Side scrolling beat em ups don't get much better than this (exception to arcades - AvP , cadillacs and dinosaurs etc). A massive improvement on the Golden Axe twin that was Streets of Rage 1. Two out ...
Best so far but still not quite there
After 3 previous failed attempts EA has finally got it right (well sort of). Having both played and watched rugby for many years this was the one sports game I wanted to be true to its cause and EA ha...
Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War
Quality air combat
Namco is always a reliable company and this game will not diminish the respect I have for them. The action is fast and furious while maintaining the reality of air combat. Spread over 30 missions w...
Resident Evil 0
An average outing that lacks interest
Following the release of the remake resident evil 1 and the overall awesome effort put into it - it was presumed that this prequel would equal if not better its predecessor. It starts out with your ar...
Def Jam: Fight for NY
Thanks to AKI entertainment (WWF No Mercy) wrestling games have finally come back. Not only is this game visually beautiful it also has a touch of class with the roster swelling with Rap stars. The...
Resident Evil Outbreak File #2
What exactly am I supposed to do?
Bought this a couple of weeks ago anticipating it to be a marginal improvement on the original. I'm a huge fan of resident evil and thought that I could look over any imperfections. The intro is ve...
BioHazard 2 (Value Plus)
The greatest of the old generation Evil series
While this game is now 7 years old it still holds alot of power in my game playing life. The upgrade from Resi 1 is very evident from the off set. It contains more interesting characters (some prove f...
Way of the Warrior
Hilarious Garbage that you will enjoy
This game is really amusing. It arrived on the scene as another attempt to re-vitalise the idea of motion capture with CG backgrounds (without the success of Wing Commander 3s effort) From the firs...
Metal Slug 4 & 5
Good for 15 minutes and then file it away
Arcade perfect ports doesnt always mean that it is ok for companies to sell an ancient game at a high price. Metal Slug is the stuff of legends and remains probably the best 2D shooter of all time (an...
bleemcast! Metal Gear Solid
A dog that has developed fleas over the years
I was very interested with Bleem to begin with. While most people were playing Metal Gear Solid 2 on PS2 I had to be satisfied with Headhunter (not a bad substitute) or the original Metal Gear. I purc...
Commandos 3: Destination Berlin
Another GEM by Eidos and Pyro Studions
Having played series for over 7 years this was a natural purchase. While it lacks the depth of Commandos 2 (and the difficulty) fans of the series will persevere. Its a love it or loath it relationshi...
Super Street Fighter II X: Grand Master Challenge (for Matching Service)
The ultimate version arrives at last
From the moment the intro screen hits with Ryu there is an undiniable feeling that you are about to play an arcade machine from your sofa. While the game is now close to 12 years old it hasnt lost its...
Virtua Tennis 2
The more you play the better it gets
Visual Concepts does it again!! Another solid sports game that has more than meets the eye initially. I was a huge fan of the original and this followed suite. The graphics are clean and crisp, the so...
SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom
Not a bad effort using a flawed game engine
Difficult to review this one as I am not a normal fan of SNK beat em ups. While back in the day Art of Fighting and Samurai Showdown were absolute classics the franchise of Fatal Fury etc has become r...
Contra: Shattered Soldier
Trash of the highest order
15 years on and the same formula of gameplay is squeezed to death. Contra III was a classic and this gives the series a bad name. Admittedly the graphics are ok and the sountrack contains some fast pa...
The Perfect game has finally arrived
It has taken over 20 consoles and finally the perfect game has arrived. This is astonishing. The graphics are sublime, the sound is magnificent as is the music. The gameplay is rock solid and avoids t...
ESPN NFL 2005
Forget EA Sports - this is what NFL is like
Having played countless hours of ESPN NFL 2004 this was a natural purchase having become sick of EAs repetitive ugly slop called "Madden". For 20 bucks there is no better purchase. While the roster i...
Red Dead Revolver
A rip roaring journey into Spaghetti Western Celluloid
This game was a sleeper hit. Those who are fans of the Sergio Leone style of westerns will love this. The graphics are solid and bring the feel of western movies to gaming. The sounds are classic rico...
