REVIEW – Frogger Hyper Arcade

A Buggy Frog Frogger has hopped onto next gen systems, including PSN and WiiWare, but winds up jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. The main Frogger gameplay elements that gamers have been playing for decades remain the same – move from one side of the screen to the other without coming …

REVIEW – Johnny KungFu (3DS eShop)

Mr. Game and Watch UFO is no stranger to the eShop having already released the repetitive but challenging Samurai Sword Destiny and their original undead rock title Zombie Slayer Diox.  Johnny KungFu continues the UFO streak of a lower quality gaming experience but fans of old LCD games should at least find an appreciation for …

REVIEW – Zuma’s Revenge

Ball Blasting Not too long ago, I wrote an article about the DS retail version of Zuma’s Revenge.  And just as I predicted, this color-matching sequel has transition to the XBLA with online leaderboards, 400 Achievement Points, and even a few different Avatar awards. Just like the DS version, this sequel’s biggest highlights are the …

REVIEW – Tomba! (PSOne on PSN)

Love Pink Cavemen. Evil pigs. Pink hair. Platforming. Ledge clinging. 2.5D. Side quests.  FMVs… Tomba could very well be one of the best games you never played. Known for reviving long lost cult favorite video games, MonkeyPaw has painstakingly brought back the pink hair caveman to the PSN.  This digital download is also the most …

REVIEW – Mad Dog McCree (3DS – eShop)

Mad Dog Crap This is a really, really terrible game and you should definitely not play it.  In fact, you should stay as far away from this game as possible and the five seconds you wasted of your life reading these two sentences is already too much time talking about this game. Ok, there.  I …

REVIEW – Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown (XBLA)

Straight Forward Virtua Fighter 5 was originally released on 360 and PS3 way back in 2007.  Proving its age, one of the highlighting features was online play.  But can a re-release of a half-decade old fighter go toe-to-toe with the other fighting games of 2012? Unlike Marvel Vs Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken, and even …

REVIEW – Prototype2 (PS3)

Hulk SMASH Prototype 2 is a decent follow up to the 2009 original but still has chore-like missions and boring clichés but entertaining mindless combat. In an interesting turn of events, the protagonist from the first game, Alex Mercer, has infected the new playable character with his appendage mutating super powers.  But as a typical …

REVIEW – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Here We Go Again… Modern Warfare 3, the latest game in the long running Call of Duty franchise, is stuck in a rut.  With only minor additions, like new gameplay modes, MW3 still retains the same glaring gameplay flaws that have been present since the franchise went Modern and can pretty much be viewed as …

REVIEW – Dragon’s Lair (XBLA with Kinect Support)

Die With Motion Control In its 30 year history, Dragon’s Lair has been ported to pretty much anything with a screen on it.  While the unique animation is welcomed, the nostalgia will bring back memories, and the invention of quick-time events was revolutionary, Dragon’s Lair simply does not hold up well in modern times, offering …
