Review of Mischief Makers — Shake-shaking things up

If there was anything the Nintendo 64 was knee-deep in, it was platforming games. Not only was Super Mario 64 an absolute masterpiece in the genre, but there were a handful of second and third-party platform gems in the 64-bit console’s library. And no matter how obscure a game may be, you know it has […]

Review of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — Did you say “chocolate?”

Remember the 2005 film adaptation of the classic children’s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? That movie was heavily hyped up before it came to theaters, and for good reason. Tim Burton was in the director’s chair, Johnny Depp portrayed the internationally-famous Willy Wonka, and it was the first time since 1971 that Roald Doahl’s […]

Review of Super Mario Maker 2 — Can we make it? Yes we can!

I know we’ve been saying this to absolute exhaustion, but I’m gonna say it again because it’s a good enough article to do so — The Wii U came as close as possible to ending Nintendo’s time as a first-party game company. Due to things like bad business decisions from Nintendo and a small amount […]

Review of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled — All Crash and no burn

Few gamers would disagree that Crash Bandicoot was a very important piece of the PlayStation One’s library. Our orange marsupial hero starred in terrific platformers that went toe-to-toe with big franchises like Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. And let’s not forget about Crash Team Racing, Sony’s heavily-revered answer to the iconic Mario Kart 64. CTR […]

Review of James Bond 007: From Russia with Love — We will win this for Mother Russia…And MI6

It’s no secret that when a game company acquires a license to make games based on a movie franchise, the devs will do anything to make some extra dough before the next film is released. Take Electronic Arts and the 007 franchise, for instance. A year after Everything or Nothing took to the shelves, the […]

Review of Team Sonic Racing — What’s gonna work? Teamwork!

I know I’ve already said this in at least one review that I did, but I’m gonna say it again — I am a racing-game fanatic. Few things in videogames get my adrenaline pumping as much as fighting my way through a motor-filled hullabaloo. And after covering popular series like Daytona USA and Burnout, I […]

Review of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe — The Wii U clogs ’em, the Switch clears ’em

As we gamers know, Nintendo said they would do anything in their power to make up their losses caused by their Wii U console. Considering they only sold 13 million units and aimed to sell 100 million, you can’t really blame them to take on this kind of task with their latest console in the […]

Review of Pokémon Channel — Lights, camera, Thunderbolt

There’s always the chance that videogame IP’s can be great at one genre but stumble in another, and few franchises are as aware of that as Pokémon is. The globally-popular masterpiece has always been adept at the combination of turn-based strategy and role-playing, but the life-sim game Hey You, Pikachu left a bad taste in […]

Review of Daytona USA — Stock car racing discovers kansei dorifuto

It’s not like this needs to be said, but I’ll start this review by saying it — If you asked a big number of people what their favorite arcade-cabinet racing game is, a very common answer would be the game that picked up where Sega’s own Virtua Racer left off; The one that was less […]
