Earthworm Jim 2  
Action Genesis 91
An ordinary average earthworm named Jim goes about his normal daily life, cruising around avoiding crows and doing other general worm-like things. Until one day, Jim is suddenly struck by a very large Ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit. Through sheer luck, Jim rests safely in the neck ring of the suit. Suddenly, the ultra-high-tech space particles of the suit begin interacting with Jim's soft wormy flesh. A radical light-speed evolution takes place. Jim soon realizes that he is now in control of the suit.

Earthworm Jim 2's gameplay is similar to the first game, with Jim running and jumping through the levels. There are five weapons more than in the original game to collect. Characters like Princess Whats-Her-Name and Psy-Crow also appear.

Ecco the Dolphin  
Kids & Family Sega Genesis 5.0 (1 votes)
"Ecco The Dolphin, on the face of it, looks like a cute game. On first seeing it, you'd think of it as a platformer suitable for a younger audience, the sort of game you'd buy your kids. But then you'll get home, play the game and immediately see how hard it is. Because Ecco The Dolphin is Hellishly difficult, but, beyond the hardship, an excellent game.
Graphics: Ecco never really pushes the genesis although the graphics are nice enough, appearing dull to match the game's overall sense of impending doom.
Sound: One of Ecco The Dolphin's real strengths is the sound. While the effects are fine, it's in the musical department where Ecco's sound really excels. A wonderful mix of melancholic, dread-filled pieces and techno-style beats, all of Ecco's music is superb and was even released as a soundtrack (Ecco- Songs Of Time). The MegaCD versions, music is even better as it was completely remixed for the crisper and much more powerful CD format.
Gameplay: Ecco The Dolphin is a mix of adventure and puzzles, in which you play (believe it or not) as Ecco, a young dolphin on a journey to save his friends and his home from Armageddon. You can talk to other animals with your Sonar, and destroy enemies by charging into them. You have to bars- a health bar and an oxygen bar. You can keep your oxygen bar up by regularly resurfacing (although this sometimes gets in the way of the gameplay) and you can refill your health bar by eating smaller fish.
Some puzzles are devilishly hard, as are some of the games adventure and exploration elements.
Lifespan: Ecco The Dolphin has to be one of the most fiendishly difficult video games of all time, so it'll take you a while to complete. In fact, one of the final levels, entitled Welcome To The Machine, has to rank among the hardest video-gaming experiences of my life. And, like me, you'll probably want to play through Ecco again after you first complete it, so there's plenty to keep you going.
OVERALL: Ecco The Dolphin is an excellent game, at times hindered by a solid difficulty level and minor gameplay niggles, although overall it has to rank among the Mega Drive's best games."
Rating - 9/10

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion  
PLAYSTATION 3 4.5 (48 votes)
Oblivion is the quintessential role-playing game for the next generation and another leap forward in gaming. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. Oblivion is the latest chapter in the epic and highly successful Elder Scrolls saga and utilizes next-generation video game hardware to fully immerse you into the experience. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the main quest at your own pace or explore the vast world and find your own challenges.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim  
Action, Role-Playing (RPG) PlayStation 3 90
Two hundred years after the events described in Oblivion, the continent of Tamriel is in turmoil. The Emperor's throne remained without heir; the Blades, Empire's elite guards, have been disassembled; elven nations began capturing territory from the Empire. The assassination of the King of Skyrim, Tamriel's Northern-most province and home of the Nord race, led to a civil war between those who wish independence for Skyrim and those who wanted it to remain under the Empire's control.

A prisoner is brought to a small town, awaiting execution for alleged involvement with the Stormcloaks, a group that was founded by the king's assassin Ulfric Stormcloak. Just before the executioner's axe lands on the prisoner's neck, a dragon attacks the city, forcing most people to flee. The unexpected freedom leads the ex-prisoner into the snowy Skyrim, where the rumors of the dragon begin to circulate.

Like its predecessors in the Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim is an open-ended role-playing game with action-based combat. The player may explore the vast environments of Skyrim from either first- (default) or third-person perspective, being unrestricted in his or her travels and free to undertake any side quests in any order, or follow the main quest. It is possible to fast-travel to previously visited locations directly from the world map. The player can also opt to buy (or steal) and ride a horse.

There are ten races to choose from: Altmer (High Elves), Argonian (reptile people), Bosmer (Wood Elves), Breton, Dunmer (Dark Elves), Imperial, Khajiit (cat people), Nord, Orc, and Redguard. Each race has their own perks and limitations, such as Nord being resistant to cold, Khajiit being weak with magic, etc. Unlike the previous games in the series, the player cannot choose a class for the main character; rather, the latter evolves into any class-like combination gradually, according to the play style. When the protagonist reaches a new level, the player may increase his or her Health, Magicka, or Stamina and a new perk may be added to one of the skills. There are eighteen skills altogether, and each skill has several levels and perks which may be obtained. Most perks are only accessible after a certain level has been reached in said perk. For instance, in order to reach higher perks with Destruction, destructive spells must be leveled up. Skill levels can increase either through extensive use, skill books, or even paying for training from certain non-playable characters.

The game contains some features that were introduced in Fallout 3. Enemy level-scaling is done in a similar way, as opposed to the more intrusive system of Oblivion. The player may hire other fighters to follow the hero around and lend a helping hand in combat. Also, the lockpicking system of the previous installment has been replaced by the lockpicking methods of the recent Fallout games. Conversations with NPCs now occur in real time rather than "freezing" time as in Oblivion.

Players can craft, cook, or build any number of items depending on ingredients and skill levels. Alchemy allows players to make potions, Enchanting allows players to imbue armor and items with magical abilities (such as increasing the effectiveness of magic resistance), and Smithing allows players to either craft or improve weapons and armor. Smelting, tanning and cooking are also a part of this mix as well: Smelting is the skill of turning raw mined mineral ores into usable ingots for smithing; Tanning is the process of drying animal hides to make leather strips, useful in creating or improving armor and weapons; Cooking allows players to turn otherwise minimally useful food ingredients into much more beneficial meals.

Melee attacks can be performed using either two or one-handed weapons. Blocking reduces damage and allows for the opportunity to bash an opponent with a shield. Archery is also available for some ranged attacks, as is quite a bit of magicka. Each race also has a distinct magic-like power ability; only one power may be equipped at a time. For instance, a Nord power is to frighten enemies away for a while. New to the series is the Shout ability, which is a special power based on Dragon language. These require a special set of circumstances to unlock: first, the ancient words must be learned from Word Walls hidden all over Skyrim; secondly, they can only be activated by acquiring a dragon soul (from slaying a dragon).

Crimes may be committed by stealing, pickpocketing, murder or attacking innocent people, or even by trespassing. Generally this puts a bounty on the head of the player character, unless said character is quick enough to eliminate all witnesses. Fines and jail time, or a beat-down from authorities, are likely to ensue if the hero commits too many crimes or merely ends up getting caught. The protagonist can serve out his or her sentence on the jail bed, or pick the lock and escape; however, going to jail is likely to cause current skill progress to be lost.

As before, there are several groups, guilds, and the like that the player may encounter and join, each with their own advantages or disadvantages, each with their own views on the current events of the world, and each with their own quests. The abilities to become a werewolf or vampire are also present and have been somewhat streamlined: for instance, sunlight is not instantly deadly to vampires, and lycanthropy can be spread around.

Enemy Zero  
Sega Saturn
"A good idea that didn't come through as planned."

Despite the poor reviews many magazines gave it, namely for
being a slow moving game with weak shooting sequences, I actually enjoyed this game. It was a refreshing break from standard first person shooters, and I actually got nervous hearing the beeping of the radar letting me know that an enemy was nearby!

Graphics: 8/10
For a Saturn game, the graphics are actually pretty good. You can see little details, including the nail polish on Laura's fingernails, very clearly. Although you don't see the creature that you are after, the aftermath is rather grotesque, meaning that the weak of heart should stay away!
As for the acting, it's not the best, but it's not that bad either.

Sounds: 7/10
The music in the game sets a good mood for the alien thriller theme. As for sound effects, you hear the beeping of the radar device which indicates how close you are to an alien, which you can't see. If you get close enough, you'll hear it roar, meaning that it's time to move out of there or become the next victim! As for the voices, they are acted fairly well, but the conversations are all one-sided as Laura never speaks, save for when she's recording her progress.

Controls: 8/10
When you're in a room, it plays like you're on rails: That is, if you press forward, you'll move ahead a few steps, left and right turn toward the next thing of interest. You can examine objects and use items in rooms. Outside of the rooms, however, is a different story. You can run, shoot with your gun, and...get killed! Yes, if you get too close to an enemy, you will become the next victim of the game!
However, shooting isn't all it's cracked up to be. You must charge up your gun untill the right point, and then let go. If you don't charge enough, you'll miss, and if you charge too much, you'll overload and have to restart. In addition, you've got to be at the right distance to hit. It takes practice, but it gets easier.

Story: 8/10
It's kind of like an Alien movie: Laura awakes from cryogenic sleep to find something wrong, and then discovers that the crew is being killed by an invisible alien creature. Go figure. Then again, it's not that bad, either.

Replay: 6/10
Considering the difficulty of the game, some people may be turned away after a few test runs. With a little practice, though, you should be able to get further into the game and actually enjoy the storyline.

Overall: 8/10
True, Kenji Eno may not have made a blockbuster hit, but it is worth the time if you want a unique game. Try Enemy Zero at least once if you're a fan of Sci-Fi thriller movies. Just watch out for the enemy, which you don't want to get too close. Suddenly, my radar is beeping rather- AAAAH!

In both cases, your freedom is no longer your own...

Escape from Monkey Island  
Adventure PlayStation 2 80
Guybrush Threepwood has finally defeated the zombie pirate LeChuck, and married his sweetheart Elaine Marley. The happy couple is returning home from an exciting honeymoon. But as they arrive on Melee Island, they notice some very strange changes. A mysterious stranger who calls himself Charles L. Charles is organizing a campaign to become the next governor. The Australian businessman Ozzie Mandrill is turning the Caribbean into an attraction for tourists. And on top of that, Elaine's mansion is being demolished! Naturally, it's up to our hero to revert the things back to normal, even if that means traveling to exotic islands and solving puzzles on the way.

Escape From Monkey Island is a direct sequel to The Curse of Monkey island, and is the fourth game in the Monkey Island series. The gameplay relies mainly on inventory-based puzzles and branching dialogues, just like in the previous installments. The interface is similar to that of Grim Fandango: mouse is not used, and the interaction is done via context-sensitive commands that appear on the screen whenever you navigate Guybrush close to an object. The game utilizes pre-rendered backgrounds and 3D character models.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem  
Action & Adventure GameCube 4.5 (36 votes)
It's often argued that they make the best video games in the world, but one thing Nintendo aren't renowned for is scary games. If you thought "Luigi's Mansion" was frightening then quite frankly you've led a sheltered life, because "Eternal Darkness" is the real deal: it's scary, it's gory and it's really not anything like "Resident Evil" at all.
As the game starts you awake from a rather cool dream sequence to discover that your grandfather's had his clogs popped by some unspeakable monster of the night. While rummaging through his stuff (alone, at night, in his huge mansion, natch) you come across a jolly little hardback called the Tome of Eternal Darkness, and upon reading it you suddenly find yourself controlling a Roman centurion in Persia circa 26 BC. And this is how the game continues, with you finding and reading a passage of the book in the mansion and then controlling a series of 11 completely different characters over the course of two millennia.
Apart from the innovative structure of the game, "Eternal Darkness"' other big selling point is the sanity effects--every time you see a monster and fail to kill it your sanity will drop. If it drops too far you start seeing things: flies walking along the inside of your telly, messages telling you your controller is unplugged when it clearly isn't and all sorts of other clever freakery.
The game's not perfect, though; the combat is a little too fiddly and it's still not quite as scary as "Silent Hill", but "Eternal Darkness" is an unusual and rewarding title that should finally shut up those annoying twerps that insist Nintendo only do games for kids.--"David Jenkins"

Players will also have the opportunity to customize their duffers with hundreds of different articles of clothing and equipment that can affect the way they perform in addition to the way they look.

The Evil Within  
Action PlayStation 3
The Evil Within is an action survival horror game that draws inspiration from the Resident Evil series with a grimy look with exaggerated gore. The player controls detective Sebastian Castellanos who is called to a crime scene of multiple homicides at the Beacon Mental Hospital together with his partners Joseph Oda and Julie Kidman. When they arrive they find all police cars abandoned and almost everyone killed in a gruesome way. When reviewing security footage he spots a hooded man called Ruvik. The next moment the man is behind him and Castellanos blacks out. He wakes up in a world he does not recognize where he is held captive in the basement of a large, chainsaw-wielding man. After escaping he investigates what has happened in sixteen chapters set in different locations.

As a survival horror game Castellanos is often outnumbered, enemies are strong and supplies are scarce. Many confrontations can and should be avoided through sneaking. Enemies have an awareness level and can be lured away by throwing a bottle. Eye icons show when an enemy is nearby or has been alerted. A lantern is used to light dark areas. There are environment based puzzle elements involving items and notes, and small stone statues can be destroyed to find keys to open item lockers. Castellanos can perform melee combat and uses regular weapons such as a revolver and a shotgun, as well as grenades. Once the agony crossbow is discovered, multiple possibilities are opened up to take out enemies, for instance by freezing or poisoning them, or by creating harpoons or lightning traps that stun. Health can be replenished through a limited amount of syringes and matches burn defeated enemies, permanently killing them.

The camera hovers closely behind Castellanos. Many level parts offer multiple approaches, with the ability to silently sneak or to hide. While exploring jars of green gel can be picked up that act as upgrade points. By staring into a mirror Castellanos is transported to an asylum in his imagination. There the game can be saved and it has a chair where he sits down to upgrade weapons and abilities with up to five levels. Points can be spent to improve weapons with a damage multiplier, faster firing rate, shorter reload time, large clip capacity, improved accuracy or a larger chance for critical hits. You can also make more room for ammo or items, or use points to upgrade physical abilities such as more health, extended sprint time, more melee damage or large syringe recovery.

There are traps and bombs in the environment that can be disarmed to earn trap parts, used to craft crossbow ammo. Traps can also be left in a strategic way to limit the number of directions enemies can attack from. Enemies include animals, regular 'haunted' enemies, and a number of grotesque creatures. There are also boss fights. There are three difficulty levels.

The Evil Within 2  
Survival horror PlayStation 4
From Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within 2 takes the acclaimed franchise to a new level with its unique blend of psychological thrills and true survival horror. Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything, including his daughter, Lily. To save her, he's forced to partner with Mobius, the shadowy group responsible for the destruction of his former life. For his last chance at redemption, the only way out is in.

Evolution: The World of Sacred Device  
Action Sega Dreamcast 3.5 (42 votes)
Evolution was the first role playing game released for the now defunct Sega Dreamcast. Unlike many role playing games, this one can be completed in a relatively short amount of time (16 hrs vs 50+ for many RPGs). While the game has its high points, a number of low points exist as well.

The high points include better than average graphics, a decent storyline, and a wide variety of options available during the battle scenes. Normally the graphics of games released early for systems tend to be average at best. For the most part, this is not true, especially with the "cut scenes". The storyline is above average, but it is nothing compared to the Final Fantasy series' storylines. The battle scenes offer the player a variety of options when using technique points. Some of these options are offensive, some are defensive, and others are simply for laughs (Gre's food offerings to the enemies, for example).

The low points include boring, monotonous dungeons and a weak "big boss". The dungeons, which are randomly generated each time they are entered, are very drab and has the look and feel of some of the dungeon trawling from some of the RPGs available on Sega's Genesis system. Some dungeons contain one or two groups of monsters, whereas others have 20+. The player never knows until they enter the dungeon level. The "big boss" is somewhat difficult to beat the second time, but the character itself is a weasel-like nerd who is obsessed with learning the secrets of Linear, the blonde female character in the game.

Overall, the game is worth playing. Its level of difficulty is fairly low with only the dungeon bosses providing much in the way of obstacles. If you can handle the repetitious dungeons and like shorter RPGs, Evolution would be a good one to play.

Exit DS  
Action Nintendo DS
Exit DS consists of over 100 levels in which the player takes control of Mr. Esc who must rescue people from various conditions (Flames, Smoke, Ice, etc.). To do so, the player must move Mr. Esc and the Escapees, either with the stylus or the control pad, and have them perform various actions throughout the puzzle-like levels, such as moving boxes, extinguishing flames and breaking icicles.

Each different character possess a different set of abilities and problems. For example, Large People can push heavier objects, but need the help of two Adults to climb higher than 1 meter.

Each level has a timer that indicates the time limit for the current stage. Depending on how fast the level was completed, the player gets a score up to 100%.
