gaming since 1997




Calling Psychonauts a majorly innovative game might be a bit too much credit for the latest baby by Tim Schafer who we know from games like Full Throttle and Grim Fandango. After all, it remains an obvious platform game. However, it’s one that shines so much fantasy, original findings and variation that you can’t deny […]


Tak: The Great Juju Challenge

When I was a little boy, I had the right game. The only game I had ever owned but it became better with every play and it became more intense day by day. The protagonist became a hero all by itself, not an infallible one as is proven, but those years he was the man. […]


Kameo: Elements of Power

A new day, a new X360 review. With some delay but certainly not less important, we today take a look at the second launch game from Rare. Next to Perfect Dark Zero they had also finished Kameo: Elements of Power. A game that has been in development since the time the Nintendo64 was the top […]


Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission Las Vegum

Do you remember the time when the Asterix and Obelix comics were really good? Neither do I. Keeping that in mind; do you know how easy it is to make something bad out of something that wasn’t that good in the first place? This game for instance: take a stereotypical plotline, mix it with outdated […]


Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer

How to impress a girlfriend as a young native American? That is the problem Brave is wrestling with in The Search for Spirit Dancer. Deep in the rainforest, there are no juiced-up cars to cruise with, or fancy clubs to show off your moves, so you can only decide to become a warrior. Shaman Grey […]


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 […]


Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

Abe has always known to tickle my senses. That little fellow farted more often than my grandma and he did it with his conscience in full effect. On my orders he made the most incredible sounds a man can squeeze out of his high knee, amazing, isn’t it? Abe however is no more among us. […]


Legend of Kay

A platformer with a cat as the main character. What do you mean, not original? But, it has to be said, JoWood is probably the only developer/publisher daring to create new platformers. All the rest are yet another sequel of a previously successful game. So -if you feel like playing a brand new series- you […]


Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space

Xbox has had a rough time to get a decent platform game on the market. When Blinx: The Timesweeper was released, it wasn’t too bad, except for some options you couldn’t use optimally. Blinx 2: Masters of Time&Space had to improve that so let’s see what has been cooked up. A nest of cats with […]


Super Mario 64 DS

Thé launch title for the Nintendo DS is without a doubt Super Mario 64 DS. It’s a brushed up version of the original and well-received Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo64 but more expanded due to the addition of a multiplayer mode and addictive mini-games. Has Nintendo already found a topgame already for their new […]


Ratchet & Clank 3: Up your Arsenal

The Ratchet & Clank series, together with Naughty Dog’s Jak (& Daxter) games, rule the present day platform-genre, a genre dominated by Sony’s PlayStation 2. For the third year in a row, Insomniac brings us a new game featuring the beloved duo. In this third episode Ratchet the fox and Clank the clumsy robot need […]


Jak 3

Jumping Jak came back and once again he and I are more grown up. However, I still remember the day I saw the first Jak and Daxter commercial followed by the third place slogan. It was poured into the living room and into my brain on a Saturday evening when I was watching some dumb […]


Ty The Tasmanian Tiger 2

My initial reaction was: why me? The answer is quite simple: nobody showed interest in this somewhat “suspicious sounding” title (rescuing president Bush?) so give it to Mario. Well, they couldn’t be more right. All the great games of the last months made me long for mediocrity. Now I’m not a big fan of prejudices […]


Sly 2: Band Of Thieves

One of the “things” I despise most are pickpockets because they steal from people on the most cowardly way. In addition, most of us don’t even realise that they have been robbed and consider the possibility that they lost their precious watch passed down from generation to generation. Therefore it is not so much of […]


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. […]
