Anno 1503: The New World. Max Design (2003) PC

(Released in Germany 2002) Anno 1602 was a sedate game, but on the whole I enjoyed it, so when I was bored and looking for games on Good Old Games I thought i’d give the sequel a try. And yes,

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 Millennium 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

Fatal Frame (Project Zero) Tecmo (2003) XBox

Fatal Frame (in the US), known as Project Zero in PAL, and just “Zero” in Japan is a Survival Horror game that I refused to give a chance. I have always had issues with skeevy Japanese schoolgirl fetish/anime shite, so I

UFO: Aftermath. Altar Games (2003) PC

UFO: Aftermath started off  “The Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge” by Mythos Games, but was eventually abandoned. It is an homage to X-Com, and is partly based on the abandoned X-Com: Genesis. It is *NOT* officially related to UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Bioware (2003) XBOX

There are games that come along every now and then that have blown my socks off. Silent Hill 2 is one of them, Final Fantasy VI is another. With that, Knights of the Old Republic is firmly in the socks blown asunder camp. I

Gunfighter II: Revenge of Jesse James. Rebellion (2003) PlayStation 2

I am going to do a top Light gun Games list soon, and to do that I want to get a few games out of the way. So apologies to the many people who don’t like On-Rails shooters as much

Silent Hill 3. Konami (2003) PlayStation 2

What better way to wrap up Konami month than with Silent Hill 3, on anniversary of reviewing Silent Hill 1! Silent Hill 2 is my favourite game, I honestly think it to be one of the few examples of a perfect

Resident Evil: Dead Aim. Capcom (2003) PlayStation 2

Every now and again I come across a game that blows me away and I really enjoy it. Maybe my expectations were low for RE: Dead Aim, but I found the game way more fun than it had any right

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Nintendo EAD (2003) Gamecube

Wind Waker has always been a strange one for me. I can remember the faux outrage over the cartooney graphics, and I can remember getting bored of the game around the plot twist. So originally (in two attempts), I never

Resident Evil: Code Veronica. Capcom (2000) Dreamcast

I previously reviewed Code Veronica X on the GameCube, and thought it was finally time to come and play the “proper” version of the game.
