Soul Calibur V is a good game, but it could have much more. It is a step backwards from what it once was.
When I became a member of GameSpot, the very first game review that I wrote and submitted was for Soul Calibur IV on the PS3. That was four years ago. Here I am now, at the threshold of a new year, talking about the la... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
A fitting entry in a franchise spanning 25 years, Skyward Sword isn't perfect, but it is one flight worth taking.
Long before the events that unfolded in Ocarina of Time, there existed a young man named Link; a greenhorn (no pun intended) of the Knight's Academy in the world of Skyloft, a floating island providence that sits high ab... Read Full Review8 of 12 users found the following review helpful
A fun arcade game in its own merit, and a great value at only 400 points, Shinobi might just get your attention.
I recall wanting to play Shinobi in the arcades so badly when I first got word of its existence. When I finally found an arcade machine, I went away only having played it once. A shame, really, because amidst a sea of ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
It's hard to believe it took five games to get to Street Fighter 3. This was only due in part because Street Fighter 2 became so immensely popular and, at the time, it underwent a menagerie of extensive tweaks, balancin... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
TMNT Turtles in Time is undoubtedly one of the greatest games of its kind ever conceived. I say this wholeheartedly because my friends and I used to play the game endlessly--both in the crowded arcades and the confines ... Read Full Review3 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Space Harrier 2 doesn't break any boundaries, and only ends up being a marginal cookie-cutter of the original game.
Space Harrier was quite the trip when I played it in the arcades. It was a vomit-inducing, heart-pounding 3D shooter that pulled no punches and showed no mercy. It even made me cry. Four times. My own personal memori... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Despite these games having Raiden in their titles, the games themselves don't bear too much resemblance to its fore bearers. But I don't hold that against them, seeing how fun they can actually be. After thirteen or so... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
The cries of an anguished, mountain-sized beast that echo across the expanse of a forbidden land as it collapses to the ground like a skyscraper after a horrendous earthquake. The uncertainty that has befallen the fate ... Read Full Review11 of 11 users found the following review helpful
A solid, no-frills update of the Nintendo 64 classic that's just as fun and engaging as it was fourteen years ago.
Exiled on the planet Venom, the evil scientist Andross has launched a full-scale invasion against the Lylat System. Responding to the cry for help from General Pepper of the planet Corneria, Fox McCloud and his mercenar... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful
A few issues get in the way, but Alice: Madness Returns is one rabbit hole you won't mind falling into.
Far removed from the pleasant atmosphere of the Lewis Carroll books and even furthest from the Disney films, Alice: Madness Returns is a morbidly twisted take on a familiar children's story. It just so happens to be the... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Although it isn't perfect, Uncharted is quite possibly one of the finest video game experiences available today.
Compared to most other video game characters, Nathan Drake doesn't wear any fancy duds or carry earth-shattering weapons and gadgets. He can't summon monsters, cast magical spells, or leap halfway across a football fiel... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Boasting improved production values and gameplay, Ninja Gaiden III is even more challenging than its predecessors.
Ninja Gaiden III wraps up an engaging trilogy involving a ninja, a CIA agent, a whole lot of deceit, and stupidly-cheap demons. It's also every bit as challenging and difficult as its fore bearers, unforgiving in its st... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
In an era long past, two Sisters were responsible for the creation of the World. But what they set out to create, they have also set out to destroy. Thus, a mysterious young man, haunted by visions of catastrophic ev... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Doing justice to the license, Arkham Asylum is quite possibly the greatest Batman video game ever made.
At the dead of night in Gotham City, a seemingly random attack by the eponymous Joker at the mayor's office sets a sinister plan into motion that threatens to besiege the shadow-stained metropolis within its core. Howe... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
I remember visiting a pizza place as a kid on a field trip with my elementary school class, having only a couple of minutes sitting in the Thunder Blade arcade machine (i.e. the mock video cockpit), flying through the fi... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Compared to Street Fighter 2 Turbo for the Super NES, the Genesis version for the VC is totally unnecessary.
When Street Fighter 2 was first ported to home consoles, it was generally perceived to have been exclusive to the Super NES system because Capcom made games only for Nintendo consoles. However, a couple of years later, ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
When I first owned a Super NES as a kid, I was excited when I learned the home port of Final Fight was going to be a launch title. Playing the original arcade game, I was looking forward to replicating that experience a... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Efforts much appreciated, Golden Axe III ends up being a watered-down, disappointing shell of its source material.
We only caught a brief glimpse of this Japan-exclusive third entry in the Golden Axe series when it was first introduced for a short time on the Sega Channel nearly 15 or so years ago. At the time, it was never consider... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
