Grandia III (PlayStation 2)

Grandia III review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

I'll say it right now. Grandia III is my first game in the Grandia series, so I won't be comparing it to any other game in the series. However, the Grandia franchise is mostly known for its battle system, which is arguably one of the best there is out there in todays market. But a great battle system alone doesn't make a great RPG, and I think that Square Enix may have forgotten that.

Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

Let's face it. In today's gaming world, a lot of people have ripped on games that are on the 2D surface. Games like Atelier Iris 1 and 2 come to mind as good examples of this. However, just because a game has 2D Sprites doesn't mean it's going to be a bad game, and I wish people would accept that fact. Enter Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia.

Dead Rising (Xbox 360)

Dead Rising review (X360)

Reviewed on June 05, 2007

If the living dead ever manage unionise, Capcom are in for some trouble. The software giant has made more than a few pennies from violence and general discrimination against walking corpses and clearly has no plans to buck the trend; Dead Rising features zombie genocide on a grand scale. While the Resident Evil series has concentrated on shocks and scares, the focus of Dead Rising is the oft overlooked positive side of the zombie apocalypse; the chance to beat the absolute crap out of the undead...

Bug! (Saturn)

Bug! review (SAT)

Reviewed on June 04, 2007

There was something oddly familiar about BUG! when I played it for the first time. It reminded me of another game. But as I made my way through the first area, going in and out of the background on a maze-like, narrow path, I couldn't put my finger on it. I just kept going through these long acts, collecting blue crystals scattered everywhere, jumping on top of various bugs with unusual designs (one's outer skin falls down when you attack him, revealing his boxers), and venturing into sim...

Gears of War (Xbox 360)

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on June 03, 2007

Upon its explosive debut on Microsoft's next-gen console, Gears of War was almost universally lauded as a classic of its genre, the "killer app" for the 360. Its lineage is certainly impressive, with Epic having previously done the immortal FPS Unreal Tournament -- which still remains just as stunning and addictive almost a decade after its release -- before tackling the tactical shooter with Gears. Visually it's a masterpiece, an impossibly beautiful piece of technical wiza...

Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 02, 2007

Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia is the latest 2-D RPG from the developers at Gust, who are mostly known for the long-running Atelier series. The game was released in North America by NIS America, over a year after the Japanese release. The release was originally scheduled for a much earlier date, but the game was delayed several times due to NIS America not realizing just how much dialogue needed translating.

Spider-Man 2 (DS)

Spider-Man 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on May 31, 2007

If you have been keeping up with the flow of DS reviews that have been trickling out of my head recently, Spider-Man is a name that should be firmly embossed inside yours. There are 4 Spidey games currently available on the DS platform, and Spider-Man 2 was the first one released, back when the DS made its sketchy debut. I now bring the quadrilogy of reviews to a close by spilling my guts on this launch title. Bear in mind that it’s quite disgusting – my guts that is.

Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X review (PSP)

Reviewed on May 31, 2007

What happens when you remake one of the best games ever, substituting classic 2D sprites with more modern 3D polygonal models? Well it can no longer be considered one of the best games ever anymore. Close enough though.

Just Cause (Xbox 360)

Just Cause review (X360)

Reviewed on May 31, 2007

Just Cause starts out in spectacular style ; It throws you out of a plane! As you hurtle towards the island of San Esperito, you can't help but think "This is cool." Upon landing, you are thrust straight into a gunfight with several assailants attacking your friend, with your job being to save his life by ending theirs. Then, before you even have time to catch your breath, you jump on the back of a truck which speeds off towards your destination. Cars chase you, and even helicopters join ...

God Hand (PlayStation 2)

God Hand review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

The first thing that will strike you about God Hand is that the story is god damned insane. The initial cinema alone has the main character telling a his really hot female companion that some rough looking Road Warrior type male thugs are “sexier” than she is, which is followed up a little later with a scene where he tells two blatantly homosexual boss characters in gold & silver bikini armor that he “isn’t that kind of guy”. Those two scenes are pretty tame though compared to some of the most...

Egg Monster Hero review (DS)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

The Almamoon Kingdom is in trouble. No, there aren't invading troops led by an evil warlord. There is no famine, pestilence is under control, and the only epidemic around is the flu during wintertime. The problem lay with Almamoon’s leadership (or rather, the lack of it). After inheriting the position from his father, the prince of Almamoon has been shirking his royal duties. He spends his days snoozing on the throne, chowing down everything edible in sight, and completely ignoring his education...

Dual Blades (Game Boy Advance)

Dual Blades review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 27, 2007

Meet Alperen. He’s the villain of Dual Blades, the wielder of a powerful weapon of the same name. He doesn’t actually use two swords, though; he somehow stumbled across a mystical blade, sold his soul to claim it, and thus created the legendary sword. In return, the Dual Blades granted him immortality, leaving him doomed to wander the Earth as an ageless swordsman for the rest of his existence. Of course, the possibility of such power has led several other warriors to defeat Alperen and g...

The Punisher (NES)

The Punisher review (NES)

Reviewed on May 27, 2007

"A hitman is just another fighter waiting for The Punisher's knockout punch," says the titular hero, strangely referring to himself in the third person like one of his many eccentric nemises. This would seem to indicate right away that LJN, notorious for exclusively developing horrible licenced titles, is conducting business as usual, this time on Marvel Comics' vigilante demi-god. It's clear they just don't get much out of the material, other than "shoot criminals", just like the makers of Dolp...

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed: Battle Assault review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 26, 2007

Gundam. For anime fans, that name should conjure up images of massive robots decked out with laser cannons and energy blades. Since its inception in 1979, the franchise has spawned multiple series featuring these hulking mechs and lives of their pilots. Gundam SEED follows in the tradition of its predecessors by portraying an ongoing struggle between the Earth’s military alliance and ZAFT, a group comprised of the united space colonies. This series focuses more on the issues of genetic en...

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance review (GBA)

Marche Radiuju has a problem. As the new kid in St. Ivalice, he is both shy and withdrawn from his fellow classmates. Instead of experiencing his childhood, he spends his time caring for his younger brother Doned, whose crippling illness has left him stuck in a wheelchair. Then there’s Marche’s friend Ritz, who is utterly insecure over her appearance (because having weird hair is so much worse than being handicapped for life). Lastly, there’s Mewt, a wimpy bully magnet with an alcoholic f...

Skies of Arcadia review (DC)

Like Ivana Trump, Skies of Arcadia really does have it all. If it were appropriate to give Christmas presents to games, I'd have a mightily hard time trying to pick something out for this one. From the epic storyline to the orchestrated music, the beautiful, huge world just waiting to be explored and the myriad of side quests and bonuses that add to the playing experience, Skies of Arcadia is un underground classic for good reason. This is one of the few relatively recently released games that h...

Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

The Shin Megami Tensei series isn't all that well known to the mainstream gamers of the United States or any other country outside of Japan. Infact, if you were to ask anyone to name one RPG franchise, the most likely response you would get would be "Final Fantasy". While no one can deny that the Final Fantasy series is one of the most popular RPG franchises, if not the most popular, the Shin Megami Tensei can hold its own in a conversation with Final Fantasy in it. To be honest, I had never eve...

Blue Lightning (Jaguar CD)

Blue Lightning review (JCD)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Recently I joined a very elite club: the group of Atari Jaguar CD owners. The Jag CD add-on was released very late in the Jaguar's brief lifespan, so there were relatively few titles released for it. Apparently only 20,000 CD units were manufactured, but those people who did buy one new received four pack-in discs: a music-only CD of Tempest 2000's 'soundtrack', a brief demo of Myst, the music/puzzle game Vid Grid, and Blue Lightning.
