REVIEW: TUROK 3: SHADOW OF OBLIVION (GAME BOY COLOR)

Something I don’t do very often when it comes to writing reviews is to look on what other people have written, a trend I broke with Turok 3: Shadows of Oblivion. I personally really loved the first Turok Game Boy outing, and while disappointed by the simplicity in its sequel, I still enjoyed it much more than…

REVIEW: DANGER GIRL (PSOne)

Growing up as a video game fan in the 90’s couldn’t have easy for a female. Sure, there was Joanna Dark to look up to and even Lara Croft was a no-nonsense, intelligent role model who was just as comfortable in a museum as in a shooting gallery, but all those qualities that made the…

REVIEW: X-MEN: MUTANT ACADEMY (GAME BOY COLOR)

Fighting games as a genre really took off in the 16-bit era due in no small part to the one, two punch of Capcom’s Street Fighter II and Midway’s Mortal Kombat. Getting games like that to work on 8-Bit devices where the input is limited to really two buttons was never really that good an idea, but it never…

REVIEW: X-MEN: MUTANT ACADEMY (PSOne)

REVIEW: TUROK 3: SHADOW OF OBLIVION (NINTENDO 64)

The year 2000. It use to sound so futuristic, but it’s hard to believe it was fifteen years ago. From the amount of things that were happening in the video game industry at the time, it really did feel like the future though: The Dreamcast was in its second year of life and championing online…

RIPE FOR REMAKE: SPIDER-MAN (2000)

A trend that has surfaced in gaming last generation and spilling into this one is companies either remaking, or remastering games. Chances are if you picked up a PS4 last fall it may have came with a remaster of the critically acclaimed PS3 title The Last of Us, or maybe you picked up an updated version…

REVIEW: SPAWN: IN THE DEMON’S HAND (DREAMCAST)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 10/29/2013 Capcom is no stranger to licensed games, having crafted dozens of superb games based on the Disney license in the 8 and 16-bit era that are still well regarded by many today. They’ve also been known to dabble in the Marvel Comics world as well: you might know of…
