Duke Nukem Advance
I confess. Despite my faintest memories of playing Duke Nukem 3D with an old friend back in elementary school, I've never really followed Duke Nukem. I remember reading in Focus on the Family's media analysis magazine, P... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
I am so thankful that this game is on Gamespot's Greatest Games of All Times list, which is surprising because Gamespot, in general, hasn't been too friendly to anything done by SNK. Gamespot justified their bigotry on t... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Finally! I have the opportunity to sit down gather my thoughts and write about one of the greatest video games of all time! Now your first reaction should be a pessimistic one. That is... if your smart. After all, it's n... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
4 KBs of pure brilliance and an outstanding testimony of how well thought out gameplay exceeds graphical accomplishments
It seems that the games I expect the least from end up being the greatest games I've ever played. There is just something so extraordinary when a game that you don't expect to get much out of flips your world upside down... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Visible scanning lines, muffled sounds, flickering graphical blotches and terrible loading times = bad PS emulation!
It's almost 5 o'clock in the morning, so I'm going to make this quick. I feel like I have to warn people about this package from Sqauresoft. I bought it at a pawn shop for $6.99, and I didn't have to pay a thing because... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Bruce Campbell meets Deadpool in this slick, stylish, and hilariously cheesy B-class Japanese horror flick...
When our family first got back to the States from Africa in 2006, I remember entering Wal-Mart for the first time in 5 years and being blown away by all the games in the electronics section. While glancing through the ai... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Straight up, Syberia is one of the most mysterious, unique, and astonishingly original game worlds ever concieved. Picture each of these words in your head as you read them: lawyer, robots, Swiss Alps, funeral, mammoths,... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
Clunky combat, meticulous backtracking, dull boss fights and a goofy ending makes this the most overrated GC game ever!
After my first play through with Resident Evil 4, I remember thinking that I would donate my money and time solely to the survival horror genre. Back in high-school I spent hours playing and eventually beating Tecmo's wo... Read Full Review3 of 8 users found the following review helpful
The Sensible World of Soccer has to be the most disappointing game that I've played from "Gamespot's Greatest Games of All Time." Granted, I played it on DOS instead of the Amiga so I can't give a completely fair account... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Samus Aran is my long running favorite Nintendo character, so I was a little confused when my brother sent me an e-mail [referring to Team Ninja's recent Metroid: Other M] saying, "Nintendo is determined to ruin the lege... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This NES title screams for Co-op multiplayer and doesn't deliver! One of the worst ports from ARC to NES.
If I remember correctly, the reason why one of the greatest arcade games of all time was called "Double Dragon" was because two people could play at the same time. Billy and Jimmy are one of the most iconic arcade heroes... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Bioshock is one of the most innovative, unique, and immersive games I've experienced since my first play through with Resident Evil 4 back in 2007 (I know I'm behind in the times considering Resident Evil 4 was released ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Taking Mega Man and turning him into a tank isn't enough to make this title worthy of a replay... or of a download.
I felt completely misled after downloading this game. No matter where I looked, I had received nothing but postive reveiws for this game even though I had never heard of it till I saw it advertised on the Wii Shop Channe... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
This game is HARD! Normally, I like hard games because of the gratification that comes with it... but this game, I was more than ready to be done with it. Don't get me wrong. It was and is a great game. I do not at all f... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
The Revenge of Shinobi
This game alone should throw out any reservations you had about buying a Nintendo Wii... It is simply phenomenal!
Before I say anything else I need to say this: Throw out everything bad you've heard about the Wii! Go to the nearest retail store or pawn shop! Buy a Nintendo Wii! Connect to the internet! Go to Wii Shop Channel, and do... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
When I first played this game, I was more interested in increasing my strength attribute than my intelligence, so I chipped off some intelligent points to add to my strength. BAD MOVE!!! For the longest time I couldn't f... Read Full Review3 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Why do I like Ys Book I and II? I really can't figure that out. Technically, I shouldn't. The game consists almost completely of nothing but mazes. The story is as generic as any RPG can get. Other than the impressive cu... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Ys Book I & II
If you've played the NES version of Bionic Commando then you are well aware of the fact that this is one of the first video game protagonists who can't jump. Ever since Dirty Harry from the classic Atari game Pitfall and... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Mega Man 2
Mega Man 2 is "Just Right." There really isn't any other way to describe it. From its addictive platforming, to its quirky memorable boss fights, to its spectacular soundtrack, Mega Man 2 is nothing short of a phenomenon... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
It should be noted right off the bat that ActRaiser contains some of the most beautiful music in gaming history with the most impressive tunes during "sim" mode. I wikipedia-ed the game and was astonished to find out tha... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
If you enjoy commanding an army represented by one square with a pixelated hieroglyphic of what is supposed to be a man on it, then this game is for you. If you enjoy moving your army around, not with a mouse, but with t... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Lets just face it. If it weren't for the infamous fatalities and exaggerate dispersion of blood this game would have easily fallen into the passe within in the first year, maybe even into oblivion. The only thing that gi... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Hideo Kojima has created a masterpiece which largely depends on nostalgia, but I still bought into it. Yes, I've grown to love these characters, and their faces have largely impacted my mind and heart. The game is riddl... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Metroid: Zero Mission
Last year, I went through a severe mental depression that I just could not escape from. I was on three different kinds of medication, I was seeing a psychiatrist, and even reading the Bible. I would lay in bed and just t... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
If you enjoy pumping quarters to battle the same friggin' robots over and over again. This game is for you!
This game sucks. It sucks because it's a beat 'em up. It sucks as a beat 'em up because it has no variety. It has no variety because you battle the same robot sprites over and over and over and over again. Occasionally, ... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
What can I say? It's brainless, but so is the whole genre of "beat 'em up?" I announce you, Double Dragon, as the King of brainless gaming. I mean the game has the potential to be fun. For example, you and another friend... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
