Killer 7

What an irritating experience I just had! Even in the first levels, my irritation standard reached a new level. What’s the deal with those stupid monsters with no A.I whatsoever? They run, and run, and run, just to blow up in your face without leaving a trace. Nothing to do but shooting of arms and […]

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

Everyone of course knows the Street Fighter games that come from Capcom’s stable. A lot less known however is the Darkstalkers series from the same makers. Not so extraordinary seeing that these games were released for arcade halls and the Dreamcast. Just like their more famous brother these were pure 2D fighting games and especially […]

Viewtiful Joe 2

When Viewtiful Joe 2 was delivered chez casa Zwan, my first reaction was “Wow, what have we here? A Cube-top game ? Apparantly the miracles haven’t perrished from the world!” A man would jump a hole in the air for less as with the rather thin offer on great GC games (compared with that for […]

Haunting Ground

Haunting Ground is a new survival horror game from Capcom who seem to be specialised in this genre. Let’s see whether I got some shivers this time You play Fiona Belli, an 18 year old girl that’s well foreseen with ears, legs and other things we men like to see jumping up and down (which […]

Shadow of Rome

I suppose everyone remembers the history lessons or Latin classes that talked about the Roman Empire. What started out as a poor farmer village on the Tiber river, expanded and turned out into one of the most powerful, most sophisticated civilisations Western Europe has ever seen. Under the reign of Caius Julius Caesar the Empire […]

Resident Evil 4

I’ve never been a big fan of the survival-horror genre which was practically invented with the first release of the Resident Evil series. On top of that, the series has also brought forth a bunch of crap, side-steps, and even remakes. In short: the whole has been bleeding to death. It was therefore with some […]

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening

Dante, the half-demon with coolness written all over him, first appeared in Devil May Cry, one of the very best first-generation PS2 titles. Two years later, the half-baked sequel Devil May Cry 2 appeared and Dante was soon forgotten. Now, our hero has arisen again to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and he’s all out […]

Capcom Fighting Jam

Is the world waiting for yet another 2D fighter ? That’s the question I posed when Capcom Fighting Jam arrived in my mailbox. What can the old Capcom heroes do next to the Tekkens and Virtua Fighters of this next-gen world ? Especially since we really thought this genre had had its best after the […]

Mega Man X8

Capcom has always been kind of an oddball. Sometimes they make truly wonderful games, just think about Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe. They’ve also got a lot of amusing titles, take the recent Shadow of Rome or the older Maximo for instance, but they also excel in publishing true rubbish, like Devil May Cry […]

Mega Man X Command Mission

You know, this game really damaged my self-confidence and made me lose some necessities to be a good reviewer, that is of course if I ever had any of these. However, after I read “Who Took My Cheese” and got some pep-talk from our most laudable editor-in-chief, I found the strength to start writing again. […]

Crimson Tears

Crimson Tears, what does that title remind me of? Think, think, think … some WW2 arcade flight simulator I guess but what was it? That is it: Crimson Skies, one I have to put on my list as I still want to play it some day. There are also Crimson Sea and sequels of both […]

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection

Street Fighter is one of those series everyone gamer has heard of but especially those gamers that are now in their 20’s will vividly remember the original game from the arcades. It’s been 15 years that one of the classics amongst fighting games saw the light and to celebrate this event, Capcom released an Anniversary […]

Resident Evil: Outbreak

Resident Evil is nicely split in two parts. The first is the ‘main’ part, which continues the normal story every time and is hailed by the fans. The other is the ‘spin-off’ part, which gives you some background information about unimportant characters and is not so well received. But there’s always hope. Now there’s Resident […]

Viewtiful Joe

Viewtiful Joe, Capcom’s highly innovative, cell-shaded 2D-platformer turned into a rock-solid hit on the GameCube console. After a year of waiting in patience, PS2-gamers FINALLY got this straight-A title. Well, better late than never they say! Nobody should miss this ubercool videogame. Why am I so enthousiastic, you say? Read on and you’ll find out. […]

Under the Skin

I am not in the mood for a fancy introduction and neither do I have the time because after the extremely calm period in which almost nothing was released, games are now rolling in by the dozen. You could compare it with all these nature documentaries that describe one year in a climate that goes […]
