Bone: Out From Boneville
Bone: Out From Boneville is a strange enough game to warrent something more than a standard review. That is why we went with a crazy rant in stead.
20 Sep, 2005
Bone: The Great Cow Race
Bone: The Great Cow Race takes the Bone series the right direction. Which is great.

CSI: 3 Dimensions of Murder
Telltale released their CSI game, and Mojo readers didn't get too excited. It is, however, a genuinely good game, and one that comes recommended, even for people who haven't seen the TV series. You see more, please.
02 Apr, 2007

The latest C.S.I. based game from Telltale is based in Las Vegas. The city's slogan is "prepare to be lowered into the depths of Hell."

30 Oct, 2010
CSI: Hard Evidence
Telltale Games, A.K.A LucasArts 2.0, publish their latest game baby based on the illustrious Crime Scene Investigation TV series. Here's a fact for you: there's only been one murder associated with The International House of Mojo, and in Spaff's defense, the person was being a bit of a prick.

Episode III: the game
You’ve seen the movie, now play the game! In this 3D platform lightsaber-’em-up LucasArts, or at least, The Collective, aim to cash in on the film and entertain you at the same time. That’s the plan, anyway - did it work out, or is this just another excuse for Lucas to print money? Find out in our review!

Mojo continues to review old LucasArts games that it should have years ago as they get re-released on the Virtual Console.

Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb Review
Chris "The Tingler" Cappel journeys into the heart of China to review Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Did LucasArts do things right? Is the game historically and culturally accurate? Find out the answers to some of those questions within!
10 Dec, 2018
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Reviewed
The last official Indiana Jones adventure game ever gets an official Mixnmojo looking to. The question is, does this sort of thing still cut the mustard now that we're living on the moon with robot slaves in the wondrous 21st century?
09 Dec, 2018
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine Review
We take a look at LucasArt’s action adventure Indy-em-up back from the dying days of the last millennium. What was life like back in the 90s? Were boy bands ever really that popular?
09 Dec, 2018
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
The oft-delayed much-hyped Indiana Jones game, released a year after the fourth film. Was it worth the wait? Do people still care? Find out inside!
14 Jun, 2009
Indiana Jones Reviewed

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures
The first three Indiana Jones movies were made into one super-whizzy game. Retro fun awaits the intrepid adventurer who braves its side-scrolling gameplay of doom.
04 Dec, 2009
Insecticide DS Review
From the makers of Curse of Monkey Island comes a combination of action-platformer and adventure game in the form of Insecticide.
15 Dec, 2018
Jedi Academy Reviewed
For one of the first (and probably last) times ever, we got an actual Star Wars gamer to review a Star Wars game. Despite being blinded by years of fandom and merchandise lust, Boba Rhett was still able to find a couple things to grumble about. All in all, he likes the game, though.
08 Dec, 2018
Jedi Outcast Review (PC)
To say that this game was wildly anticipated is quite the understatement. Ever since Mojo had the pleasure of viewing this game first hand at E3 last May, we could tell this game was going to be fun. Now, almost a year later, Dark Forces III: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast has hit the store shelves, but have the high expectations of the fans been met? Oh yes.
07 Nov, 2018
Jedi Starfighter Review
Not so long ago, Star Wars Starfighter made its debut on the PlayStation 2 as an impressive action game to showcase the power of a new console. Although the game had its shortcomings, it was generally considered quite a success. Now LucasArts has utilized this success to create a sequel, Jedi Starfighter.

Lego Star Wars
We take a look at the latest in game concepts - take Lego, the Danish brick with a thousand uses, and Star Wars, the well loved if oft-abused franchise, add in some platform adventure gameplay and a whole load of fun and bake in the oven for forty minutes. What’s the result of all this? A nice big cake. A nice big cake of Lego Star Wars. Read on to find out more...

Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga
A look at the bundled release of Lego Star Wars 1 (the prequels) and Lego Star Wars 2 (the original trilogy), as played on the Wii. Is Darth Vader still scary in lego form? Are lightsabers really that awesome on the Wii controller? Why are we all so old, all of a sudden? Where did my childhood go?

Monkey Island 1 Classic Review (PC)
Lemon Head does what no Mojo reviewer has done before (that we remember) and tackles The Secret of Monkey Island. ... Yes, of course it's good!
11 Dec, 2018
Monkey Island 2 Classic Review (PC)
Released in 1992, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revengs is quite likely the most important game of all time. That may be a lie, but it's definitely fun. If you've never played it (don't lie, now!), or if you just like reading these things for the sake of nostalgia, this review is for you.

Psychonauts
Psychonauts is, for those of you who have Googled their way in here for the first time, the latest game from Double Fine, Tim Schafer's post-Grim Fandango company. It's an action/adventure that combines elements from classic graphic adventures with platform games, while also throwing a bunch of other genres in to the mix for good measure.
21 Feb, 2012
Psychonauts (PS4/PS2)
Oi… Play the other platforms.

Review: Star Wars Bounty Hunter (GC)

Sam & Max Save the World
After Sam & Max 2 was cancelled by LucasArts, a number of renegade game mechanics broke free and formed Screw You, Assholes -- later renamed Telltale Games. A short while later, they released their own Sam & Max game.

Sam & Max: Season One Soundtrack Review
The first soundtrack was invented in Ancient Greece by the great thinker Archimedes, but he merely used it at symposiums to carry wine. It took the might of the Roman Empire to put the soundtrack to its true use: to play music. "Ade vencini decorium elevenus" were the famous words of Emperor Latius. A rough translation reads: "turn it up to 11, dammit."

Star Wars Reviewed
What happens when you drink 17 cups of tea in one go? Most people go on a killing spree and end up getting strangled by a paedophile, but Gabez wrote six Star Wars reviews instead. Six Star Wars reviews for Six Star Wars films. In retrospect and reference to the prequels. You do the math.
09 Dec, 2018
Star Wars: Clone Wars (Film)
It's hard to get excited about this, a spin-off movie that nobody asked for or wanted. It has been accused of being a superfluous trailer for the animated TV series, which is probably more than 50% correct. Perhaps, though, somebody might favour this underdog. Is there room in our hearts for one more movie?
16 Dec, 2018
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
The much hyped "return to diamond form" for Star Wars games, turns out to be "mostly fine." It's neither a slap in the rogers, nor a sexy weekend in France. It's somewhere in the middle.
16 Dec, 2018
Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People
After Sam & Max Season Two, the fiery eye of Telltale turned its gaze to the Homestar Runner universe of popular web cartoons, focusing on the character of Strong Bad. Whilst getting unreservedly positive reviews from across the board, some LucasArts type fans responded to this series without much enthusiasm. In true Mix’n’mojo fashion, we leap in several years too late and become very opinionated and unreliable. Score!

Tales of Monkey Island
No one would have believed in the last years of the decade that this web-site was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than our's and yet as mortal as our own; that as we busied ourselves with our LucasArts-angst we were being scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.

Telltale Hold'em Dealt Review
Telltale Texas Hold'em is exactly what it sounds like. It's a card game -- Texas Hold'em -- from recently established adventure house Telltale Games. But "WTF?" you type angrily. You're right, it's not an adventure game. It's a character driven, single-player PC poker game, built with the Telltale engine. Telltale Texas Hold'em stars four computer-controlled opponents, each one with different playing styles and personality traits.
