Review: Alien Syndrome (2007)

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

aliensyndromewii

Alien Syndrome was resurrected in 2007 for a sequel to the 1987 arcade original that came to Wii and PSP. In our review of the Wii game, we discover if it was worth the effort of bringing back such a long-dead franchise and whether developer Totally Games had anything interesting to add to such a simple formula.

Review: Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a surprisingly approachable fighting game that isn’t as convoluted as heavy hitters like BlazBlue or Street Fighter, but it has considerably more depth than something like Super Smash Bros.

The latest Sonic mobile title is a 2D endless runner, similar in scope to Pac-Man Dash and Rayman: Jungle Run. Sonic automatically runs through a Windy Hill-styled stage and you have to tap the screen to make him jump. That’s all there is to it.

Review: World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

1990’s Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse was an early hit for the Mega Drive. The SEGA-developed platformer was an excellent little game full of beautiful scenarios, smart level design and tight controls and it was gently dipped in that lovely, Disney goo that makes the experience all the more magical. A sequel was inevitable and the next two years saw Castle of Illusion making its way to Master System and Game Gear. An original sequel for the 8 bit consoles came in the form of Land of Illusion and then things came full circle with another Mega Drive game in the form of World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck (that title is quite a mouthful).

Review: Bare Knuckle III/Streets of Rage 3

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

The final Streets of Rage game is a polarising one. While the first two games in the series are universally praised as classic beat-em-ups, the third game just doesn’t get the same amount of love. This might be because depending on whether you’re playing a Japanese or a Western version of the game you’re in for a quite a different experience.

Another retro review! Today we’re tackling the Mega Drive port of perennial AM2 arcade classic After Burner II. Can the Mega Drive handle a faithful port of a game made for the slightly more powerful SEGA X Board?

Review: Alien Storm on Mega Drive

Alien Storm is an often ignored entry in SEGA’s beat-em-up history for reasons that aren’t particularly clear. Did the humour put off the die-hard SEGA fanbase? Were SEGA fans simply not interested in anything that wasn’t Streets of Rage or Golden Axe? Who knows. Regardless, we think it’s a game you should check out and now we have a review explaining exactly why we think it’s worth your time.

Review: Snatcher for Mega-CD

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Snatcher marks Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima’s second time as a video game director. The game was originally released in 1988 and was remastered and translated into English only once. The English language version of Snatcher appeared on the Mega-CD in 1994 and since Kojima’s breakout success with Metal Gear Solid, the game is become a highly sought-after title.

But is the game any good? Find out in our full review of Snatcher for the Mega-CD!
