Klonoa is a remake of the original and often overlooked PS1 platformer Klonoa: Door to Phantomile. During a time when cartoony mascot platformers were popping up left and right, Klonoa remained just under the radar despite its few sequels, critical acclaim, and quality.

The Mac attack is back!!! A childhood favorite of many makes its return after a long hiatus, but does this challenger have a glass jaw or the stamina to go the distance and claim the title?

It’s a question as old as male-female relations, and Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers dares to ask it again: How stupid is a horny male? Because when your game’s substantive content is women in bikinis running around slashing zombies to bits youre banking one thing and one thing alone… that sex will sell.

Ratings Guide

RRB Games uses a 5-point ratings scale. Here’s how it works.

Enshrine It

Philosophically speaking, video games cannot be perfect because they’re created by imperfect beings, us lowly humans, but if a game, despite its imperfections, simply outdoes itself and has left the reviewer in a catatonic state of awe, we award it with our highest possible rating. If we actually knew how to build shrines, we would build one for games that receive this award.

Praise It

Games can’t all be superstars, but they can still be excellent. They can still bring a smile to us even in our worst of days. Although these games may not be the zenith of gaming design or creativity or technical achievement, they’re still worth our time. To these games we award our second highest rating. These are the games we would talk highly of to our friends.

Play It

Greatness doesn’t come overnight. It is borne from uncountable number of trials of differing levels of success. As such, not all video games can earn our two highest ratings, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth looking at. These games may lack the quality or the polish of the great games, but these games still does it well enough to warrant some attention. In these cases, we say that they are still worth playing, if nothing else is available at the moment.

Forget It

Edison experimented with over ten thousand filaments before finding the perfect combination for the lightbulb. Although video games doesn’t have nearly as high a failure rate as Edison’s search for the perfect lightbulb, failures cannot be avoided. When a game simply fails to achieve that special, unknowable combination of design, execution, and imagination, we regrettably must use this rating. We value our time too much to be bothered by such failures.

Trash It

Nobody sets out to make a bad game. Or at least that’s what we try to tell ourselves when we ponder about the games that gets this rating. These games didn’t just fail. They offend the very box that holds them. Their stink wafts through the air like asbestos on a windy day. Karma’s mood must have taken the turn for the worst during the production of this game. Such abominations require far more than simple ignorance. Action must be taken against these “games”.

Sonic and the Black Knight continues the Hedgehog’s foray into the “Storybook Series” as the sequel to 2007’s Sonic and the Secret Rings. As you can guess from the title, Sega’s blue mascot is thrust into the world of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. This is a beautiful looking game…too bad I couldn’t stay awake long enough to truly enjoy the visuals.

Technically, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop is a downgraded port of the Xbox 360 original. The graphics look dated, far less zombies appear on the screen at once, and hero Frank West loses the ability to use his camera in-game. So what? This is still a fun game. Damn fun.

One of the first things that pops up on screen when you first start House of the Dead: Overkill is the dictionary definition of the word overkill.  It shows two definition for the word.  The first one, something along the line of destroying a target with more than is required, is what most people thinks of when they see the title of Overkill at first.  The second definition however is far, far more suitable.  ”Any excess of what is required or suitable, as because of zeal… or misjudgment.” [Read more...]

Where the hell are those 300 Spartans when you need 'em?

Where the hell are those 300 Spartans when you need 'em?

The only other Rygar title that I’ve ever played was the NES original, which was a pretty good but complex game that unfortunately lacked a save feature or passwords to continue where you left off. Rygar: The Battle of Argus is not a sequel but a port of 2002’s Rygar: The Legendary Adventure for the PS2. Of course, they now both have save features. Luckily, for those like me who missed The Legendary Adventure, we now have a chance to experience this genuinely solid and enjoyable action adventure game.
