Asghan: The Dragon Slayer

Asghan: The Dragon Slayer
2

Asghan: The Dragon Slayer definitely has to be one of the worst Tomb Raider clones of the 1990s. It boasts to have been “Inspired by the works of the great J.R.R. Tolkien” (the name Silmarils was directly lifted from his books), but in reality it feels like any generic fantasy world most of the time, […]

The Incredibles

The Incredibles
2

The not-so-incredible platforming game. It must be hard to translate the warmth, charm, and humanity of Pixar’s The Incredibles into a videogame, which probably explains why THQ seems to have just sort of thrown up their hands in the air and published a pair of modest titles – The Incredibles: When Danger Calls (a puzzle […]

Glover

Glover
2

A powerful wizard is messing about in his lab when he accidentally causes an explosion that supernaturally animates both of his gloves. While the good glove is thrown clear of the explosion, the other flies into a bubbling cauldron and becomes corrupted with the power of Pure Evil. Now, as Glover, you must go and […]

Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado

Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado
3

You won’t find many quality games based on movies, and those based on animated shows are even fewer. On the face of it, Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado, appeared to be among the few with real potential. Created back in 2000 on the animated movie with the same name, the game is […]

Police Quest: SWAT

Police Quest: SWAT
3

Police Quest: SWAT is one of those odd games from Sierra that is difficult to categorize. Based on the adventure game with the same name (technically it’s the fifth Police Quest game), SWAT is a simulation / adventure where you play as a fresh SWAT recruit, advance through the ranks, and make split-second decisions in […]

Planet of the Apes

Planet of the Apes
2

The best thing that can be said about Ubisoft’s adaptation of Planet of the Apes is that it’s based on the classic 1968 movie and not the old Tim Burton remake. Aside from that one reprieve, it’s exactly the kind of cookie-cutter movie spin-off we could easily survive without. Planet of the Apes kicks off […]

Simon the Sorcerer 3D

Simon the Sorcerer 3D
1.5

As with Escape from Monkey Island, Prince of Persia 3D, Earthworm Jim 3D or Quest for Glory V, Simon the Sorcerer 3D follows a long and twisted logic of changing hand-drawn, beautiful 2D games into ugly, crude and poorly animated 3D remakes that played like crap and made you barf. It was at that strange […]

Space Bunnies Must Die

Space Bunnies Must Die
2.5

Space Bunnies is a bad B-game with poor controls, mediocre gameplay and weak graphics. It appears that the majority of money spent on the game was directed at the soundtrack, art direction and advertising because Space Bunnies Must Die! is all concept, no execution. It’s a painful experience to make your way through the early […]

Zanzarah: The Hidden Portal

Zanzarah: The Hidden Portal
4

A bit like Pokem, but with fairies. Zanzarah isn’t a name that rolls off the tongue, so you’d expect a decent game to infuse a pleasant experience with such a wordy title. It’s half there, providing an unusual and strangely alluring fantasy world with the usual ‘save the world’ motif. You play as Amy, who […]

ODT: Escape Or Die Trying

ODT: Escape Or Die Trying
3

Unlike many action games, O.D.T. has a story line that, if properly developed and integrated into gameplay, could add much to the overall experience. Set in a fictional world ravaged by a deadly plague, O.D.T. casts you as one of four crew members aboard a prop-driven dirigible that’s crashed in uncharted territory while on a […]
