SNK Neo Geo CD Pad Review

by NFG - 29th February 2016 in Games, Hardware, Reviews

The Neo Geo CD pad is typical SNK: it’s strong, impact-resistant, supremely comfortable and utterly unique in its manufacture. It’s also fundamentally flawed and so prone to failure that you’re virtually guaranteed to get a flaky one if you buy […]

Review – Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved

by NFG - 1st April 2015 in Games, Review, Reviews

The problem with Geometry Wars 3 is that it tries too hard to be better, without understanding what made the prequels good. Geometry Wars is basically Robotron for the modern era, and the first GW games knew this. They adhered […]

Resurrecting the Dreamcast with GDEMU

by NFG - 21st March 2015 in Games, Hardware, Reviews

The Dreamcast has long been one of my top-5 consoles, along with the Super Nintendo and PC Engine, but Sega’s attempts to region-lock it made it less valuable to me as I bounced around the world from NTSC-U to NTSC-J […]

Review: Shantae: Risky’s Revenge

by NFG - 18th July 2014 in Games, Reviews

How long do you need to play a game before you decide you don’t like it? How many minutes are required before you say to yourself “Well, that was ten bucks wasted, thanks for nothing Steam’s Refund Policy.” For me […]

Android Review: Into the Dead

by NFG - 12th April 2013 in Reviews

Endless Runners are a pox upon the mobile market. They’re common, they’re easy, and who cares? Except once in a while they’re done right, like JetPack Joyride, or Temple Run (so I hear). Basically you run as far as you […]

Another ten year old game review: KoroKoro Post Nin, one of the first Playstation’s last releases: a Cameltry clone with incredibly cute style and gameplay that justified its $35 price tag. Barely.

MegaDrive Review: Herzog Zwei

by NFG - 23rd January 2013 in Games, Reviews

Originally published on NFGGames in 2001, updated in 2008 for Insomnia and, I think, destined for the one-issue-and-dead GameGo magazine… ‘Herzog Zwei’ means “Dukes Two” in German, the title indicating not only that this is a two-player game, but that […]

From the archives, a review of what might be fallen-giant SNK’s last attempt at something almost entirely original (ignoring for a moment it was a rhythm game with a style that looks very familiar…). Cool Cool Toon was a Dreamcast game that did everything right and still managed to suck.

Android Review: Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot Pinball

by NFG - 19th January 2013 in Mobile Devices, Reviews

Sometimes things surprise you. On the Zen Pinball forums someone mentioned this Rob-O-Bot pinball game and said favourable things about it. Others agreed, the developer chimed in, and so I went and had a look. I had seen the developer’s […]

Android Review: Super Hexagon

by NFG - 19th January 2013 in Mobile Devices, Reviews

There are games that are hard because they demand concentration and timing, and there are games where you’re not asked to do anything particularly complicated but your brain just freaks out and you die ’cause somehow, deep in your grey […]
