Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition (PSP)

Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

Like many older gamers, Final Fantasy on the NES was what initially got me into RPGs. It wowed gamers with its awesome graphics and playability, just as the series continues to do today. It’s no surprise that the franchise has grown to dominate the RPG genre. My taste for the Final Fantasy series has mellowed out since then (with a brief spike for VII), but the PSP remake really took me back and renewed my appreciation, having not played the previous PS1 and GBA remakes. What we have here is the...

TMNT (Game Boy Advance)

TMNT review (GBA)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

I'm sure the majority of us adults will surely remember sitting in front of the TV, watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles way back in the 80's or 90's. Infact, I'm sure everyone one of us at least had one Turtles merchandise, whether it was a shirt, or action figure. Turtle mania was so huge back then, video games were released for the series. Though the first game was a flop, the second game is arguably the best Turtles game, as is the fourth one. Both of them played like an Arcade Beat 'Em...

Tales of Legendia (PlayStation 2)

Tales of Legendia review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

You know, I'm pretty sure that some of the people that trashed Tales of Legendia were completly spoiled by Tales of Symphonia. That's not to say Tales of Symphonia wasn't a good game, because it was, but because of it, Tales of Legendia seems to get the silent treatment from a lot of people. I've seen plenty of people say that Tales of Legendia sucks, and then they say they only played it for about two hours before giving up. And that's what just infuriates me right there. They don't play long e...

Super Puzzle Fighter II (Game Boy Advance)

Super Puzzle Fighter II review (GBA)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

Anyone that knows me will tell you I'm not exactly the biggest puzzle guru out there. In fact, if I play anything that resembles puzzles or even a strategy type game, chances are that I'll suck at it. I can usually play the basic puzzle games like Tetris, Dr. Mario, and Bust-A-Move. However, that doesn't mean that I'm not always open to a new puzzle game. I had never heard of Super Puzzle Fighter II before, and when I stumbled across the game, I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot. To my sur...

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

By now, I'm sure the majority of gamers have heard of the two companies Squaresoft and Enix. Well, a few years ago, they formed into Square-Enix, which is widely known for its Final Fantasy franchise. Tri-Ace is also a popular company with gamers over the world. Star Ocean 3 was announced for the first time a long time ago, but the game was never released until 2003 in Japan, and 2004 in the United States. So with Tri-Ace making the game, and Square-Enix publishing the game, you'd think that wit...

Shadow Hearts From the New World (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts From the New World review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

Shadow Hearts. A series that really isn't all that mainstream, such as the Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, or Kingdom Hearts series. Back in late 2001, Midway took a gamble, and took the game Shadow Hearts over to American Shores. Though it seemed enough copies were sold, the release date was around when Final Fantasy X was first released. Midway then took up the Shadow Hearts: Covenant project. After it was released, many fans of the series claimed it the best of the Shadow Hearts series, which is e...

Shadow Hearts: Covenant (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts: Covenant review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

The Shadow Hearts series has been gaining ground in the world of video games lately, mainly with the latest addition of Shadow Hearts: From the New World. I remember I had never even heard of Shadow Hearts a few years ago, until a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of it. I recieved Shadow Hearts: Covenant as a Christmas gift from a friend in 2004, and not knowing what to expect, I played it. I was very glad I decided to try it, as Shadow Hearts: Covenant is easily one of the best RPGs f...

Shadow Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

I'm going to come out and say it. Shadow Hearts is easily my favorite RPG, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give it a 10 for everything. That would be close minded. I try to keep an open mind when playing a game and when reviewing it, meaning I try my best not to be biased at all. With that out of the way, I really do think it's a shame that Shadow Hearts was released around the same time as Final Fantasy X. That's most likely the main reason why this game was overlooked, and was only recently...

Koudelka (PlayStation)

Koudelka review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 09, 2007

In a time where RPGs became mainstream due to the success of Final Fantasy VII, the Playstation was in its glory days. With the success of Final Fantasy VII came some other great RPGs for the Playstation. Breath of Fire III, Parasite Eve (though not really considered an RPG to some), Final Fantasy IX (yes, even a Final Fantasy game). However, in the shadows of these games lurked an epic gothic horror RPG released by Sacnoth, a company of ex-Square employees. Although it's not as popular or well ...

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.

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 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...
