Urban Chaos: Riot Response Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 8.0 out of 10

Have you ever dreamt of fighting off a horde of terrorists in ski masks who can jump from building to building as if they've seen the matrix a hundred times? If so, then you may want to look into Eidos recently released shooter, Urban Chaos: Riot Response. The setting takes place in the middle of an Urban War and it's up to the T-Zero squadron to save the day. Read More.

EyeToy: Kinetic Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 7.6 out of 10

It's been quite a few months since Sony introduced the Eye Toy to the North American market, a USB camera that captures a player's movements on screen. While most of the games that take advantage of the technology have felt more like tech demos than well-rounded titles, EyeToy: Kinetic aims to change all that by bringing fitness to the small device.

Armored Core: Last Raven Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 6.7 out of 10

Ever since the days of the original PlayStation, the Armored Core series has been the perfect outlet for fans of robot battles. It borrows a lot from the Japanese anime culture and lets players everywhere live out their fantasy of piloting a giant robot. The series tries to emulate the feel of piloting a giant mech and trades fast-paced Gundam-style action for a more realistic approach. Read More.

Tourist Trophy Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 7.6 out of 10

The Gran Turismo series is one of the biggest racing franchises out there. It continues to be a hit with gamers even after four iterations in the original PlayStation and the PlayStation 2. Gran Turismo applies a formula of technical simulation driving, while still making the gameplay fun for players. Read More.

Sonic Riders Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 5.0 out of 10

Sonic the Hedgehog is likely one of console gaming's most beloved characters and has been the mascot for Sega for many years. A host of games featuring the speedy blue rodent in red-and-white runners have graced a variety of platforms to date and not all of them have been hits. Read More.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 7.9 out of 10

Many platformers have graced the PS2 with a variety of gimmicks. Despite the mess of titles out there for the console, a few games have managed to stand out above the rest; fortunately the same can not be said for Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. The Sly series manages to combine great platforming play, with outstanding cell shading graphics. Read More.

The Suffering Ties That Bind Review (Xbox)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 7.8 out of 10

Midway shocked the gaming world when, in March 2004, The Suffering was unleashed on an unsuspecting audience. The game had great action moments and was more than just an average horror game. Instead of just using bizarre monsters to scare gamers, The Suffering took an approach seen in a lot of Japanese horror movies and attempted to frighten the gamer psychologically. Read More.

Ninja Gaiden Black Review (Xbox)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 9.3 out of 10

Ninja Gaiden has been a fan favorite ever since the early days of the 8-bit Nintendo. Building on this cult favourite, Tecmo decided to put a modern spin on the original and released Ninja Gaiden for the Xbox last March. The title was widely hailed as a new classic and the best game that could have been made using the franchise. Read More.

Ultimate Spider-Man Review (Xbox)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 8.0 out of 10

The gaming community has been blessed for the last few years with decent Marvel game titles like the Spider-Man and X-Men Legends series. While the Spider-Man series has largely been based on the movies, Ultimate Spider-Man breaks away from the movie franchise and focuses on the new line of comics. Read More.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review (Xbox)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 8.1 out of 10

Mortal Kombat is one of the most popular games from the arcade era of the 90's. The fighting system was innovative and the brutal ways to kill your enemies "with fatality" were challenging and fun to watch. Over the years, Midway has released a few new titles to continue the franchise, notably MK Deadly Alliance, Deception, among others. Read More.

World Tour Soccer 2006 Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 5.7 out of 10

World Tour Soccer 2006 is a new soccer game produced in-house by SCEE's London Studio. There have been previous attempts in the series, some successful while others fell short. Having said that, World Tour Soccer 2006 tries to improve upon its predecessors but just doesn't seem to get the job done properly and feels like a very cheap game overall. Read More.

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Review (PS2)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 8.9 out of 10

Devil May Cry 3 is the newest game in the DMC series from Capcom. The first game in the series is considered by many to be one of the best action games in the PS2. The second one in the series however, did not really offer the same amount of fun as the first, a somewhat average game. Read More.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down Review (PC)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 6.3 out of 10

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is the fourth game in the NovaLogic's famed Delta Force series. The original Delta Force was a great game for its time; unfortunately Black Hawk Down is just not up to the challenge once you put it through the ropes. It is an average tactical shooter without much innovation or fun to bring to the table. Read More.

Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich Review (PC)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 8.9 out of 10

Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich is the follow up to the innovative Freedom Force title published in 2002. Developed by Irrational Games, it promises to deliver the same comic book action as its predecessor. Although the sequel retains the same combat system from the previous game, it offers a great new story, new characters, and a variety of innovative new powers for both heroes and villains alike. Read More.

Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space Review (Xbox)

By Eduardo Araujo () - 6.0 out of 10

Blinx 2 is the follow-up title to Microsoft's 2002 release Blinx: The Time Sweeper. Developed by Japanese company Artoon, the series features a time-travelling feline, although surprisingly you won't see much of him in this sequel. Blinx 2 is an action platform game similar to the highly popular Sonic series. Read More.
