Review: Goldeneye 007

Goldeneye 007 is a game that needs no introduction. Even if you’ve never played it, you’ve undoubtedly heard about it at some point. When looking over lists of the best FPS games of all time, Goldeneye is often found in the #1 spot. However, unlike many retro games, it seemed like the original Goldeneye was never going to be re-released...

Review: Mafia (Definitive Edition)

For my readers who follow my backlog reviews, I need to apologize. As you may suspect, my attention has recently been distracted by a handful of new blockbuster games and this has derailed my progress when it comes to grinding out older titles. But fear not! I haven’t been completely derelict on my duty of playing classic games – or...

Review: Diablo IV

Rarely do I stop working my way through my backlog to play a new release. However, there are certain franchises that I simply cannot resist. Diablo is one of those. When I started this website over a decade ago, the Diablo games were some of the first titles that I took the time to review. Diablo III launched shortly after...

Review: Chrono Cross

Ever since I played Chrono Trigger earlier this year, I’ve been extremely curious to see just how Square was going to try to top that experience. For me, Chrono Trigger represented the peak of 16-bit era JRPGs. It had all of the elements that I look for in an RPG and it delivered them with flawless perfection. With that in...

Review: Samurai Shodown V

Review: Blood Omen 2

I tried my best to have this review complete by Halloween, but I fell short by a few days. Despite missing my goal, I’m here with a review for yet another chapter in the Legacy of Kain series, this time with Blood Omen 2. If you’re a bit confused by the variety of sequels this series has to offer, don’t...

Review: Corpse Party

Happy Halloween friends! As many of my long-time readers know, I try to review a scary game in time for Halloween. Typically, I pick a spooky game from whatever backlog era I’m currently working on. For example, in recent years I reviewed Resident Evil 0, Fatal Frame, and Luigi’s Mansion – all games from the GameCube/PS2/Xbox generation. This year, I...

Review: Mortal Kombat – Deadly Alliance

The Mortal Kombat games have long been arcade staples. Next to the Street Fighter series, there’s very few arcade brawlers that could hold a candle to Mortal Kombat. I suppose that’s why the gaming industry took notice when Midway announced that the fifth entry in the Mortal Kombat series was going to be a home console exclusive. And true to...
