All Golf Games for All Platforms

Games of this style are based on the real-life sport of golf. Using a headed club, players attempt to hit a small ball into a hole that is usually hundreds of yards away, taking as few strokes as possible. While some golf games feature exaggerated play, or incorporate unconventional elements, they are still classified as this style. Games based on miniature golf are of a separate style, however.

Examples:
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003

Arnold Palmer Golf

Hot Shots Golf 3

Action: All Time Management Games

Time Management games require players to perform a series of increasingly complicated tasks as quickly as possible. The typical Time Management title finds gamers controlling a 2D sprite to perform fairly mundane real-world tasks, such as serving food, planting flowers, or running a business. Players can often purchase or win upgrades to make it easier to perform complex duties, and each game is usually set throughout four or more different locations.

Boxing Fever Review (2001 GameBoyAdvance Game)

Many games are hyped for months, even years, only to disappoint upon their eventual release. Then there are games like Boxing Fever, which fly in under the radar and completely surprise you. Created by first-time GBA developer Digital Fiction, Boxing Fever is an impressive fusion of stunning graphics and solid gameplay, making it a serious contender for the best arcade-style boxing game since Super Punch-Out!!

A more realistic take on the concepts introduced in the Punch-Out!! and Ready 2 Rumble series, Boxing Fever manages to blend serious boxing strategy with a colorful cast of characters that avoid becoming caricatures. These strikingly detailed boxers are so large they nearly fill up the entire screen, and unlike many portable games, there’s never a moment where you have to struggle to see the action or make out necessary details.

Everything is all right there in your face, with motion blur effects helping you feel the impact of a particularly nasty hit. The sound effects and music also add a lot to the experience — each environment has its own soundtrack, your punches sound sturdy, and the announcer who yells “uppercut!” and “body blow!” is an obvious homage to the memorable voice from Punch-Out!!

The surprisingly successful first-person perspective works because you and your opponent essentially stay stationary in the ring (although you are able lean to the left or right). This setup alleviates many of the problems that would normally arise in a first-person game, since you always know where your body stands in relation to other boxer.

The controls are responsive and easy to learn, thanks to a helpful training mode that allows you to practice the movements necessary for various punches and combinations. Boxing Fever is one of the rare games that emphasizes visuals but doesn’t fall short when it comes to gameplay. You might initially be drawn in by the graphics, but you’ll stick around for the powerful pugilistic action.

Graphics

Boxing Fever features simply stunning visuals, with largest characters in a portable game up to this point. The realistic backgrounds and great animation round out the package.

Sound

The game makes excellent use of music, sound and voice to deliver a high-energy, arcade-like experince.

Enjoyment

The controls are easy to use, and the first-person perspective really makes you feel like you’re part of the action.

Replay Value

Players can choose between single fight, championship, survival and training modes. The variety of boxers also extends the replay value.

Documentation

The black-and-white manual explains how to perform every punch and move, and lists the stats of each boxer.

All Hidden Object Games for All Platforms With Ratings

Games of this style involve finding specified objects that have been deliberately concealed in static, complex scenes that typically resemble still life paintings or slice-of-life photographs. A theme or plot line often ties one scene to the next, but the seek-and-find puzzles themselves are the focus of play, and the objects hidden in each scene often serve no purpose in moving the narrative forward.

Examples:
I Spy Fantasy
Dream Day Wedding
Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate
Hide & Secret
Big City Adventure: San Francisco

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee 2001 PC review

As might be intuited by the very name of the game, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee expresses the intent of the designers to create something a little bit different than the normal run of side scrolling epics. For anyone who thought that there wasn’t anything new to add to this type of game, think again. The GT Interactive designers have thrown convention to the wind and thrust upon the unsuspecting gaming world an enormously innovative, exciting, dare-to-be-different extravaganza that should act as a basis for rethinking future side scrolling designs.

The story is unbelievably involved for this type of game and once you get into it just a little way, you’ll be hooked. The game doesn’t depend on accumulating points to win (what!?!) nor does it bombard you with unconnected puzzle screens or mindless game play designed to merely extend the game length artificially. This is one deep continuous struggle by an oppressed slave (who didn’t realize he was oppressed until he overheard the gruesome plan that spelled out doom for him and his whole race of Mudokons) to save himself and other (sometimes) unbelieving fellow beings. Make no mistake, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is tough despite it’s cute and somewhat bizarre characters and environment.

The controls are fairly easy to learn as Abe can do over a dozen actions such as run, sneak, throw, jump, crouch, hop, roll, hoist, walk, mount, chant and use GameSpeak. This latter ability, Abe’s Mudokon language, consists of direction giving and rude noises. Learning when, where, why and to whom to use the eight possible GameSpeak options is an absolute necessity for completing the game. Locations within the game are just as diverse and craftily designed as the inhabitants of Abe’s world and include the RuptureFarms slice and dice meat packing factory where Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee begins, the territory that surrounds the factory (Stockyards and Free-Fire Zone), Monsaic Lines (holy caves of the Mudokons), Scrabania (a good place to practice moves), a couple of Temples that serve as homes to the Scrabs and Paramites (both on the endangered list thanks to the goons at RuptureFarms) and Paramonia, part of Oddworld’s threatened wilderness.

The charm of the game is enhanced constantly by the actions of the various species (friendly and non-friendly), each with fantastically designed individual traits and personalities who must be handled with care to make them function in a helpful way. An endearing feature of the game is the way Abe’s “death” is handled by simply plopping him back at the beginning of whatever section you were playing. Be prepared, however, to repeat these sections numerous times as more often than not the game springs a surprise that quickly ends in Abe’s demise and can only be learned through trial and error. (See Enjoyment section below).

Graphics

The innovative backgrounds and environments have to be seen to be believed. The consistency and plot-integrated cut scenes nearly exceed in brilliance any that I have seen before.

Sound

Every single being or creature that you encounter in the game has a unique blend of sound effects and the music is astonishingly linked to the action on the screen. Perhaps a bit more variety would have been nice but the exquisite way in which it merges with game play is uncanny. Abe’s speech is worth the entry fee alone.

Enjoyment

Overall presentation (from story to character actions) and intense game play far outshines any minor flaws perceived in the game. And those minor flaws (if any) are very difficult to identify. The game has nearly a perfect blend of sound, music, visual content, humor and nearly every emotion you can think of and all come into play during this game. If there is a flaw, it might be in the fact that the game is so frustratingly hard in places or that it forces you to learn of game traps by trial and error, thus guaranteeing sections will be replayed many times. If you are intent on saving all 99 of Abe’s Mudokon buddies, be prepared to spend a considerable amount of time glued to your computer. More than two dozen objects come into play and game play is not constricted to just repeating the same tired moves over and over. This game requires some mental agility to figure out the challenging puzzles and predicaments Abe finds himself in and not just tricky, slapdash, mindless puzzles either. There is an incredibly unique integration between Abe’s on-screen actions and the advancement of the story. Speaking of which, marvelously directed, meaningful and totally absorbing cut scenes splice the story together flawlessly and with flair. These amazing sequences have to be seen to be believed. To sum up, I have never been an ardent fan of side scrolling action puzzle games but in the case of Abe’s Oddysee I’m not only willing but downright eager to put aside my lukewarm feelings towards this type of game and unequivocally state that I hope the designer’s promise to fully flesh out other aspects of Oddworld in four more installments becomes reality. I, for one, will be at the head of the line waiting to pick up my reserved copy at my favorite software store.

Replay Value

The game isn’t really designed with replay value as a high priority. You’ll get enough replaying of most sections by the simple requirement to get through them safely. However, the game is so uniquely charming and fun, replaying it for pure enjoyment is a viable option.
