Side Arms
Earth's future in intergalactic relations, if video games are to be believed, can be summed up thusly: We're the neutral, laissez faire good guys. The aliens are convinced that our otherwise mundane existence is somehow a threat to theirs. Real reasons are rarely given; perhaps they're like the Vogons, who needed to destroy Earth because it stood in the way of their highway. In the end, though, it …

NHL '94
It's a very off fact of gaming that there are so many sports video games that are good, but yet so few that become transcendent - memorable years after their initial releases and played fondly for many years afterward. Part of that, no doubt, is the fact that sports game developers tend to release editions of games for every league every year, so there's that sense of fatigue; developers know they …

Super Mario Bros. 3
Many gamers consider this the best game in the NES library, and while I won't say that since I don't think I've played a wide enough array of games for that console to come up with such a conclusion, I'll say that this is my favorite game with the Mario title on it. This is my favorite of all the Mario games since I think among Mario's "classic" games, this one is the …

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
You know what I hate about trendsetting games? The fact that they set trends. When the new hip character cashes in, everyone begins copying the formula with the hopes of cashing in themselves. So while the original game goes on to gaming superstardom and possibly gaming classicdom, the shelves almost collapse under the weight of wannabes, which almost always get overlooked in favor of sequels anyway. …

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Before I get on with the review, I have to share some nostalgia with you. I believe my first encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was at the nearest Wal-Mart back in the late summer/early fall of 1992 and I remember seeing the game on display in the videogame section, and I played the Emerald Hill Zone, and I couldn't wait for the game to come out. Fast forward several months later, and it's …

I'll admit that whenever I think of this game, I do get pretty nostalgic over it since this was really the first videogame I ever got heavily engrossed in, since I got this at the age of four on Christmas Day of 1991 (I honestly don't remember much of my life before then). However, the nostalgia factor does NOT influence the rating I have for this game, I'm strictly rating this game on …

Ya gotta love the brawler! The most stupidly fun genre of gaming during the 16-bit era, brawlers were everything video games were meant to exemplify back then: Walking around, just beating the living crap out of absolutely everyone in sight, not worrying about the potential consequences. With Streets of Rage 2, brawlers were at their greatest height as a genre, and Capcom's Final Fight and Sega's …

The legacy of Super Mario Bros. 2 is an odd one. On the one hand, it helped permanently define the Mario canon - the ability to pick up and throw enemies is in there in large part because of Super Mario Bros. 2. Birdo, Shy Guy, and Pokey also received their first introductions in Mario 2. It was Mario 2 which first cast Luigi as the tall, stringy, high-jumping brother of Mario. Yet, there are very …

Mega Man 3
Mega Man kept on rolling in the 90s from the 80s with Mega Man 3.  To me at this point, each game was an improvement over the other.  Maybe the soundtrack isn't as memorable as Mega Man 2's, or some of the weapons aren't as cool but the game offers far more game play with tightened controls and more levels over the other two games at a time when Mega Man was still fresh and …

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV Turtles In Time
Well I just talked about one classic SNES game, heres another one.      Back when we still had those things called arcades, arcade to home transfers really didn't get any justice till the 16 bit era rolled around.  Sure there were some decent ones like Atari 5200's Pac Man and NES's Gauntlet 2 were decent, there were plenty others that left a lot to be desired.  …

A trip down Super Nintendo Memory Lane isn't complete without remembering this gem.  Super Metroid was another one of those crowning jewels in the SNES library that will cement it as one of the, if not THE greatest system of all time.      When the Super Nintendo hit, a lot of sequels or what were later thought of as "remakes" got the "Super" prefix …

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.... Wait, those last two are no good. So how about this: Sonic, he can really move, Sonic, he's got an attitude, Sonic, he's the fastest thing ALIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! Now, since I just scared myself out of any sleep for the next month, I might as well kill my newfound spare time by writing about …

Sonic the Hedgehog
When gaming fist got off the ground again Nintendo pretty much dominated the world of gaming and Mario had become a more recognizable icon than Mickey Mouse at that time.  Seeing an opportunity to really add to variety of gaming, Sega developed Sonic the Hedgehog.  Notably enough (at least to most gamers) the entire conception of Sonic and Sega, for that matter was just done for the sake …

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
When the Super Nintendo came out in the early 90's many games that were big on the NES were remade or had sequels that were bigger and better over they're 8 bit counterparts.  Gradius, Castlevania, Mario and others all had big hits on the old console and jumped into the 16 bit lifestyle with both feet to great success.  Link, the hero of THE NES search and adventure game got the …

Super Mario Kart for the SNES is the first and some would say STILL the greatest in what started the Mario Kart racing franchise.  It was my first SNES game and I still find it dear.      Gameplay is great.  Pick a racer, a circuit with it's own challenging tracks and race for the finish.  Pick up power ups to race ahead of the competition or shoot them down.  …

The typical 16 bit treatment that Nintendo was giving it's old classics was NOT lost on Link and this game is a classic with more scary lands and dungeons to explore then before.
