Throwback Review: Sonic…

696
While I can’t say for certain that Sonic Colors was inspired by the Super Mario Galaxy games, there’s times when it certainly feels like it. A bad guy kidnaps a bunch of cute creatures (Wisps, Lumas) and tries to create a powerful weapon (mind control ray, galaxy generator), so the protagonist…

Singularity Throwback Review…

661
It is the year 2010 and you are walking through the streets of Santa Monica when you pass by Activision headquarters. It seems like a normal day in the vicinity. A new CoD is being made to stand in for physical money printers that may give off the wrong…

Throwback Review: Soldier…

722
Price Paid: $5.98 At the risk of betraying the reviewing format, it must immediately be stated that Soldier of Fortune: Payback is one of the most mindless games you could devote your mind to playing. Released slightly more than a week after Modern Warfare revolutionized FPS gaming (before arguably…

Throwback Review- Sonic…

Welcome to the second and final installment in the Sonic Storybook series, in which Sonic, for whatever reason, appears within a fictional world and the story is retold with Sonic characters. As you can tell from the page image, this is the infamous “Sonic with a sword” game, but that’s…

Throwback Review: Skate…

Y’know, I wanted to talk about Oblivion, but…   You may have noticed for the past few years that a certain dormant game franchise has been long awaited by the public to return. No, it’s not Half-Life, they’ve been requesting a fourth installment of this particular series. No, it’s not TimeSplitters, although I wish it…

Throwback Review: Assassin’s…

665
I mentioned in my Sonic Generations throwback review that I’d be spending a decent chunk of this summer catching up on franchises I’d missed out on when I was younger, and Assassin’s Creed another series I’m working my way through. I started with the second installment because I’d heard the first…

Throwback Review: Sonic…

672
Sonic the Hedgehog, for whatever reason, wasn’t a childhood franchise of mine. I was too busy hanging around on the Comet Observatory or messing about in Scribblenauts to bother with the chaos emeralds, and my first time with the franchise was Sonic Advance 2 on an emulator during my senior year…
