    A PS1 review after all this time

    Ape Escape

    A PS1 review after all this time

    Ape Escape. The platformer that redefined platformers, by forcing you to use a dual shock controller. Some people really hated that. I loved it, because I have only ever used dual shocks. Enough about that. Gameplay:... Read Full Review

    An evolution, but not a revolution.

    Firstly, I have played the last three PES games, and also FIFA 04. FIFA 04 is the least realistic for gameplay, but best for graphics in stadia, and some faces. However, PES 4 seems on the face of it to be the best to da...

    Rule China with Tao Qian!! Or not.

    Shin Sangoku Musou 3 Empires (w/Mushouden Premium Box)

    Rule China with Tao Qian!! Or not.

    Dynasty Warriors games tend not to change very much if they can help it. This is possibly a good thing, and possibly not. Like other series that sell well, innovations are at the surface. Think Final Fantasy, the Mario g... Read Full Review

    Enough to remove GT4 from the pedestal as greatest PS2 racer? Maybe, if the number of delays is anything to go by.

    TOCA Race Driver 2: The Ultimate Racing Simulator

    Enough to remove GT4 from the pedestal as greatest PS2 racer? Maybe, if the number of delays is anything to go by.

    Codemasters are the masters at sleeper hits. Not so much hits in the UK and Australia, where many of their games are targeted, but they sell well in the US and Japan too. TOCA/V8 Supercar Race Driver 2 is in this categor... Read Full Review

    Mostly harmful (to other characters!)

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    Mostly harmful (to other characters!)

    GTA: San Andreas. Never has a criminal simulation game garnered so much interest. And never has a GTA escaped the Australian censors unscathed. Until now. I have to admit, there are some issues I do have with San Andr... Read Full Review

    Probably best not to play this after playing DMC1. By all accounts, the game seems worse when you do that.

    Devil May Cry 2

    Probably best not to play this after playing DMC1. By all accounts, the game seems worse when you do that.

    DMC2. A much maligned sequel. Innovations that fall flat. As you can see, the complaints about this game stem from a comparison to it's predecessor. I had the fortune/misfortune not to have played the original before pla... Read Full Review

    An amazing experience after all this time. I still get a kick out of it.

    Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

    An amazing experience after all this time. I still get a kick out of it.

    You know my play by play review style? Well, I break games down into parts and then look at the whole at the end. Legacy of Kain is one of the top games for the PSX ever. Gameplay: I wasn't a big fan of the 3D adventu... Read Full Review

    More twists and turns than you can poke a stick at. Will turn some RPG fans off, but attract others.

    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

    More twists and turns than you can poke a stick at. Will turn some RPG fans off, but attract others.

    Star Ocean. It feels like an inventors mixture of Final Fantasy, Star Trek and assorted components from other places. At times, this will annoy you; at others, the narrative will surprise you at how well it pulls you in.... Read Full Review

    Crying out for innovation.

    Athens 2004

    Crying out for innovation.

    It's a low score. The game deserves it. I bought it and returned within 3 days, and got my money back. So my value for the game should be higher for a game costing $0. But it's that bad. Gameplay: A few good games amo... Read Full Review

    The resolution (hopefully) to a great collection of Civ 3 games

    Civilization III: Conquests

    The resolution (hopefully) to a great collection of Civ 3 games

    Civ 3. Greatest turn based strategy game ever. Period. Conquests just adds to the game, and fixes the bugs that were present in the original civ III and PTW. Gameplay: Very accomplished. Only loses a ten because I ... Read Full Review

    Very, very disappointing. Why did George Gregan and INXS get in on this?

    Rugby 2004

    Very, very disappointing. Why did George Gregan and INXS get in on this?

    I've never found EA Sports to be great at most sports. The FIFA series, Cricket and Rugby have all let me down. It's a sad indictment, when the best game from that stable was ice hockey (NHL 2002), and I'm selling that t... Read Full Review

    You really need the original to enjoy this.

    Dynasty Warriors 4: Xtreme Legends

    You really need the original to enjoy this.

    The very hard stems from the new difficulty level VERY HARD (or xtreme as they call it in this series). No offence, this game is a good expansion pack, but it suffers from the fact it tries to stand alone but relies t... Read Full Review
