Twisted Metal: World Tour. Sony Interactive (1997) PlayStation

Known as Twisted Metal 2 in the US and fondly remembered by all… Continue reading

Star Wars: Flight of the Falcon. Pocket Studios (2003) Gameboy Advance

This game is a big fat phoney as there is actually not a lot of the┬áMillennium Falcon in it. But then I guess “Star Wars: Generic Space Combat Game” didn’t have as good a ring to it.

Now to give this game some context, it is so poor I literally couldn’t get anyone out of 20,000 to play it, and thus chucked the bastard game into a mosh pit at Bloodstock Festival and watched 75% of the game on YouTube. Continue reading

Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels. Key Game (1996) PlayStation

What better way to indulge my current two favourite hobbies of Warhammer (Horus Heresy) and Retro Gaming than to play a game that manages to combine the two?

Back in 1996 I temporarily collected Warhammer 40k and owned this game, and to be honest, I remember hating Space Hulk and can remember not getting very far.

So with that, let’s get nerdy, don the Terminator armour of the Blood Angels, and smoosh the faces of the Tyranids and see if Space Hulk has aged like a fine wine. Continue reading

Comix Zone. Sega Technical Institute (1995) Sega Genesis

To say this game is remembered fondly would be an understatement. Ask most people to do a “best Megadrive” list and 9 times out of 10 Comix Zone will feature in the top 5. But here at Games Revisited we like to shit on your nostalgia goggles.

And with that, how does Comix Zone stand up to our neck-bearded modern eyes? Continue reading

Resident Evil: Revelations. Capcom (2013) Xbox 360

Originally released on portable devices in 2012, Revelations got a proper full release on home consoles in 2013.

In a weird way, I quite enjoy being proven wrong about games. Capcom are responsible for over half of my personal top 50 games of all time, and this includes most Resident Evil games. However, none of Capcom’s games released after 2005 feature in my list. That isn’t to say EVERYTHING Capcom released since 2005 is crap, but a lot of it is. With specific regards to the Resident Evil series I won’t mince my words, Resident Evil 5 was crap, and Resident Evil 6 was an incoherent bag of wank, so jumping into a semi spin-off set between 5 and 6 I was not exactly expecting much.

Crash Bandicoot XS. Vicarious Visions (2002) GameBoy Advance

I am not sure which name is worse, Crash Bandicoot XS or it’s non PAL name Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. There would be a good argument the XS stands for excessive if you’re dyslexic, but “Huge” is certainly a stretch. Continue reading

WWF Superstars. Rare (1991) GameBoy

This game is so bare bones I beat it while on the loo. And not one of those epic loo sessions where time stands still and suddenly 2 hours have passed. One of those “your cheeks have barely touched the seat” visits. I could go into more graphic details but I reckon you don’t want to know. Continue reading
