Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker | Review by Gambit

Hello gamers and welcome to the midway point of our 100 reviews in 100 days. I couldn’t think of a better title to mark the middle of this list. Sailing into the #51 position… The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker was the reason I owned a GameCube. Well. This and Smash Brothers. It’s also the reason I own a Wii U now. That’s right, a Wii U. Shocking, I know. Anyway, after its release in 2002 this game went on to consume the majority of my 2003.   A Beautiful Change Undeservedly, Wind Waker fell under a lot of fire,...

Super Mario Galaxy | Review by Exemplaris

Hello gamers! Welcome to day four, week ten of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown! Flying into the # 52 spot… An evil villain Dinosaur has stolen the light of the stars, kidnapped a princess and removed the energy that fuels a Comet Observatory that’s used to traverse the cosmos. The universe doesn’t call upon scientists or super heroes, because that would make sense. No, the universe needs a plumber to rescue the damsel in distress and save the day. But not just any plumber will do, of course. It needs Mario.   To The Stars! Super Mario Galaxy...

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night | Review by Thor

Hello gamers and welcome to hump day in week ten of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. Stalking the #53 position… The Castlevania series has had a mixture of blockbusters and flops. Symphony of the Night is easily the premier of the entire series, gaining critical acclaim that has surpassed not only the games in this series but in almost all of gaming. 1997 was an iconic year in gaming which brought Final Fantasy VII, Mario Kart 64, Gran Turismo and Golden Eye. Having a graduation class like this makes this game earning the Playstation game of the year...

Metroid Prime | Review by Exemplaris

Hello gamers and welcome to day two, week ten of our 100 reviews in 100 days. Rolling into the number 54 position… In 2002, Metroid Prime was released, and while I would normally say it was a risky move to take a game series from a side stroller to a first person shooter, they definitely knew what they were doing. Anyone who had played previous Metroid games could see the similarities, while enjoying a very new experience. After eight years without a Metroid game, it was time to adventure from the eyes of Samus Aran.   The Hunt The Bounty...

Mass Effect | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and welcome to the end of week nine in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’re rapidly approaching the midway point in our list and we’ve still got a ton of great titles to show you.  Exploring the universe in the 56 position… Talking about Mass Effect got tricky a couple of years ago. Mass Effect 3, which clocked in at number 96 on our list, was (unfairly or not) absolutely torched by fans of the series for what was widely held to be a subpar ending. Can you tell I told myself “phrase that last part...

Batman: Arkham Asylum | Review by Thor

Hello gamers and welcome to day four, week nine of our 100 reviews in 100 days! Crusading directly into the 57 position… There have been numerous super hero games in the past. Most of these games end up a major flop. For some reason capturing the awesome power of a super hero in a video game has been elusive at best. Batman: Arkham Asylum dodged this bullet by immersing the player in the same world we have all grown to love, and twisted it just enough to make a great game.   BAM! POW!! Batman: Arkham Asylum brings the caped...

God of War | Review by Exemplaris

Welcome, gamers, to day three of week eight in our 100 reviews in 100 days. We’ve got another titan on our hands today. Slashing his way into the 58 spot…. Think for a while, and come up with some of the greatest bosses possible for a video game. Come up with some good ones? I’d bet a couple of them were Gods, but for an action/adventure game, no other would do, than what you get in God of War.   Game of Legends God of War was released on PlayStation 2 and immediately made an impact on gaming. The story...

Halo 3 | Review by Thor

Hello gamers and welcome to day two of week nine in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown! We’ve got an EPIC game on the list today… Finishing the Fight in the #59 position… 2007 was a fairly big year in gaming. Bioshock, Assassin’s Creed, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare all came out along with the finale to the Halo Covenant trilogy, Halo 3. Halo 3 launched on the Xbox 360 exclusively and quickly became the bestselling video game of 2007. It was the first Halo game on the Xbox 360 and the last time that Bungie would...

The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask | Review by Exemplaris

Hello gamers and welcome to day one, week nine of our 100 reviews in 100 days. Just a reminder, we’ve teamed up with pwnrank.com to bring you the top 100 games that the internet is talking about. Walking us through the five stages of grief in the #60 position… Majora ’s Mask came out on Nintendo 64 with great expectations. Although, it wasn’t quite what a lot of players were expecting as a follow up to Ocarina of Time. Like the antagonist of the game, it was slightly….odd. Despite, or maybe because of, its oddities Majora ‘s Mask is known...
