    Contra: Shattered Soldier

    Contra gets a facelift...

    If you're a fan of Contra games, you'll love Shattered Soldier. This game retains the classic side-scrolling (sometimes up and down) shoot-em up action of the earlier entries in the series and combines it with a new 3D g... Read Full Review

    Chrono Cross is a gem that should not be missed.

    Chrono Cross (PSOne Books)

    Chrono Cross is a gem that should not be missed.

    Crono Chross is the sequel to Chrono Trigger on the SNES. The story isn't exactly what you would call a direct sequel but happens in the aftermath of the first game. The story between the two games gets more intertwined ... Read Full Review

    Unless you wonder how characters from Street Fighter 2 compare when fighting characters from newer games, don't bother.

    Capcom Fighting Evolution

    Unless you wonder how characters from Street Fighter 2 compare when fighting characters from newer games, don't bother.

    To begin, I'd like to say that I bought this game mistakenly thinking this was a compilation of Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3, Street Fighter Alpha, Darkstalkers and Red Earth (lesson is folks...don't buy games when... Read Full Review

    The rebirth of D&D RPGs on the PC...

    Whether you consider it an action-RPG or a faithful representation of a D&D RPG does not undermine the fact that this is a great game and that if you have any interest in RPGs you should play this game. This game gave... Read Full Review

    F.E.A.R.

    Great visceral fun...

    Not too many games can make you feel like your actually shooting a gun and not just clicking on what you want to die. FEAR is one of those games. The guns all have very quick and realistic rate of fire and recoil making... Read Full Review

    DOOM 3

    A truly atmospheric shooter...

    First lets get right to the first thing that strikes you playing Doom 3. The graphics are real pretty, textures are huge, models and lighting are state-of-the-art. As for the game itself, Doom 3 is very much a generic... Read Full Review

    The archetype for every platformer

    This review is pointless in nature as EVERYONE should have played this game before. This game caused the birth of many gamers including myself. The reasons for this are that this game twenty years ago was revolutionar... Read Full Review

    Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

    Great for casual gaming and a NES classic

    I'll start by saying that if you have never played Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!, go out and find it now. This game is reason enough to track down a working NES and cartridge but otherwise this game is good enough to be a just... Read Full Review

    First of all I would like to state that by the time I played Fallout 2 it had been patched and so bugs that were in the game at realease will not affect this review. The premise to Fallout 2 is an interesting one. Th... Read Full Review

    Do not be fooled by the familiar anime look, this game is as far away from familiar ground as possible. The game's main strength is it's story-telling. The complex and rich story is on par with the likes of Neon Genes... Read Full Review
