The Sims | Review by Gambit

Hello gamers and welcome to the end of week eight on our 100 reviews in 100 days! I’ll admit, this week has been a little lackluster on the titles, but here we are at number 61. Simulating the number 61 spot…   So, if you’ve been following the countdown, you’ve probably noticed that each title is reviewed by someone that generally likes the game… This one got kicked around the office quite a lot before I ended up drawing the short straw and having to do it. The Sims, to me, is a gaming anomaly. I’ve never seen the draw....

Sonic The Hedgehog | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and welcome back to our 100 reviews in 100 days. We’ve come to day four in our eight week of the countdown and we’ve got an awesome 16-bit treat for you. Speeding into the 62 position… Let’s go back to the days of yore (and yes, at this point, the late 80s and early 90s are the days of yore. Anytime before the advent of the interwebs is basically the Stone Age now), when Sega was the Stallone to Nintendo’s Schwarzenegger. Like Stallone, Sega had some great titles to its name, but it could never get out from...

Space Invaders | Review by Exemplaris

Hey guys and gals, welcome to day three of our eighth week of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’ve got a genuine classic on the list today. Shooting for the 63rd spot on the list… We’re not talking about the flies you heard were buzzing around inside that cheerleader’s head back in high school. Dropping in is 1978’s arcade game, Space Invaders. One of the earliest shooter games, Space Invaders has had influences across gaming history. Gameplay Most people are familiar with how this game is played, but in case you haven’t had the chance, here’s a quick...

Wii Sports | Review by Gambit

Hello again gamers and welcome to day two in week eight of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’ve got a bit of a casual titan on our hands today. Casually Strolling into the #64 spot… Wii Sports is a difficult game to approach when writing a review. We’ve all played it… Most of us made the head first dive into Nintendo’s new innovative console, enjoyed it for a month and then gave it to our grandparents. What was it about Wii Sports that made everyone lose their minds? Do we hate it because it ushered in far too...

Kingdom Hearts | Review by Gambit

Hello gamers and welcome to the wrap up of week seven in our 100 reviews in 100 days. We’ve got one of my all-time favorite games on the list today! Unlocking the #66 Spot… Kingdom Hearts is a masterpiece that exists out of pure chance. I, not being a huge Final Fantasy fan, didn’t give it a second glance when I first saw Disney characters running around with Final Fantasy characters. In fact, I thought it was laughable. Fortunately for me, I had a girlfriend that wanted to play it. For ONLY this reason I bought a PS2 and Kingdom...

Counter-Strike | Review by Thor

Hello again, gamers! Welcome to day four in week seven of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. Modding into the 67 spot… Counter-Strike was one of the precursors to the modern shooter. In the wake of Rainbow Six, Counter-Strike was born from a Half-Life mod made by two guys that met from a modding community for Quake 2. They took their combined modding experience and created the game Counter-Strike. The game was bought by Valve in 1999 and released to the public in 2000.   Top shots Counter-Strike was a fairly simple game. The gameplay was straight forward, the...

Donkey Kong | Review by Gallifrey

Happy Hump Day on week seven of our 100 reviews in 100 days, gamers! Barreling into spot number 68… If you’re settling in for a detailed inspection of the gameplay of Donkey Kong, sorry. You’re about to be really disappointed. Not unlike Pong, which I reviewed a couple of weeks ago, there’s not a lot to discuss when it comes to the actual mechanics. Jump over all the barrels. The end. Not to say it isn’t challenging and fun, but it’s basic. What isn’t basic is this games lasting impact, because it’s been massive. More than three decades later, you’re...

Dragon Age: Orgins | Review by CodeMonkey

Hello gamers and welcome to day two of week seven in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. Protecting the #70 spot from Blight… Dragon Age: Origins is an incredible game that was released in 2009 from Bioware.  At the time, Bioware was just coming off the success of a recent new IP, Mass Effect, and had already established itself as a quality RPG developer with past successes such as Baulder’s Gate and the acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.  Bioware does an awesome job in their role playing games at building up the backstory to their worlds....
