Obscure: The Aftermath Review (PS2)

By James Ewert () - 8.0 out of 10

Obscure: The Aftermath lives up to its name as it melds the horror and gore aspect of Resident Evil 3, the teenage angst and youth stereotypes of Tony Hawk, and the music of what could be seen as Enya on crack. Mix all of these elements together onto one disk and you have a game that uses teenage horror movie cheesiness to tell a story about drugs, sex, and gory remains. Read More.

MX vs ATV Untamed Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 5.5 out of 10

MX vs ATV Untamed is a multi-vehicle racing experience developed by Rainbow Studios published by THQ for the PSP, PS2, PS3, X360, DS, and Wii. I haven't played any of the previous MX vs ATV games nor Untamed on any of the next generation systems; my experience with this series is strictly the PS2 and PSP versions. Read More.

MX vs ATV Untamed Review (PS2)

By James Ewert () - 4.5 out of 10

MX vs ATV Untamed is a multi-vehicle racing experience developed by Rainbow Studios and Incinerator Studios published by THQ for the PS2, PS3, X360, DS, and Wii. It should be noted that from my research Rainbow Studios was the developer on the various other systems with Incinerator being the principle developer for the PS2 version. Read More.

Godzilla: Unleashed Review (PS2)

By James Ewert () - 2.0 out of 10

Godzilla: Unleashed is the gigantic foam-suit flop available for the Wii and PS2 developed by Pipeworks and published by Atari. There's word online that a PSP version is planned for 2008 and I can only sacrifice so many Care Bears to the video game gods in hopes that this doesn't happen. Read More.

Swashbucklers: Blue vs. Grey Review (PS2)

By James Ewert () - 4.0 out of 10

Reading up on Swashbucklers Blue vs. Grey prior to it's release got me shivering my timbers on the poop deck in anticipation. The concept of an action RPG pirate game set in the United States during the Civil War era sounded intriguing. Alas, just like a Christmas with presents of socks and underwear, this budget title disappoints. Read More.

Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 8.5 out of 10

Some people just love Star Wars. I personally love Star Wars so much I spend every day at work contemplating deep questions such as whether hating Jar Jar Binks makes me an intergalactic racist or if Jawas had access to universal health care. Thanks to these truly deep questions I was excited for the opportunity to review LucasArts' Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron for the PSP. Read More.

Dead Head Fred Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 9.3 out of 10

Dead Head Fred for the PSP is a wild video game experience that raises the bar for PSP gaming entertainment. The title serves a unique blend of old school 1930's mob movies mixed with creepy environments usually attributed to Tim Burton. The game features killer graphics (no pun intended), and showcase the preeminent voice of sarcasm: John C. Read More.

Traxxpad Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 8.0 out of 10

Traxxpad Portable Studio is a game (although more like a software package) for your PSP. It allows you to create music with or without talent or soul using many of the computer-related assistance tools (most notably a quantizer) that major record producers use. Read More.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 5.5 out of 10

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas (herein just referred to as Vegas) is the latest addition in the Rainbow Six series. Developed and published by Ubisoft, Vegas has versions for the Xbox 360, PC, and PSP. The PSP version is not a port but was built from the ground up as a smaller side story to compliment the main story line found in the Xbox 360 and PC versions. Read More.

Infected Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 7.5 out of 10

Infected is a classic don't-blink-or-you're-dead zombie shooter for the PSP brought to you by Planet Moon Studios and Majesco Entertainment. It is a high-energy game that feeds off of constant action from every angle as waves of zombies test the limit of your intestinal fortitude. Read More.

MLB '07: The Show Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 8.3 out of 10

MLB'07 The Show is a high-octane baseball title developed by 989 Sports and published by SCEA for the PSP. The Show promises to raise the bar over their '06 title with Adaptive Pitching Intelligence, Road to the Show career mode, Pitch Command System, and Online Suite features. Read More.

Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 8.7 out of 10

As one of the most marketed games ever released for the PSP, Ratchet and Clank (R&C) Size Matters launched to an audience with high expectations and does not disappoint. This rendition of R&C is not a port from one of the previous PS2 titles but was developed by High Impact Games from the ground up specifically for the PSP. Read More.

Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner Review (PSP)

By James Ewert () - 6.5 out of 10

Monster King Jewel Summoner (herein known as MKJS) is an RPG developed by Gaia and produced by Atlus for the PSP. MKJS presents a fantasy world where a long history of respectful human/monster co-habitation has evolved into human fear and attacking monsters. The life force of the attacking monsters can be trapped into Jewels to be invoked by either a "Jewel Summoner" (the good guys) or nefarious supernatural evildoers known as "Abominations". Read More.
