    A breath of fresh air when it comes to your every day RPG.

    Magna Carta, to me, is something I look for in all my role-playing games. It's not "cute-sy" and has more of a mature look to it. Despite the fact that the main character looks oddly like a woman, the story, visuals and ... Read Full Review

    A great title for action-RPG fans and classic RPG fans alike

    For me, RPG's are a way of life; all other titles are second runners-up. I am always in the market for a new RPG, but there are just so many Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest clones out there that it can be difficult to fi... Read Full Review

    Magna Carta, easily overlooked and not exactly a bad thing.

    Magna Carta, another mediocre RPG released in 2005. With the tough competition of Dragon Quest 8, this has no chance of striving up. But it's abysmal? No, it's good, and that's all. Firstly the gameplay seemed very ... Read Full Review

    Better then made out to be!

    Ive read many of the reviews found on here and Ive come to these two conclusions... 1. People didnt like the game because of the fighting system, or 2. People didnt like this game because of the fact that the main charac... Read Full Review

    Dont judge a game by it's theme song.

    I bet alot of the low scores this game got is due to starting off on the wrong foot with a generic slow pop song. It does not fit the game's mood at all and sorta throws me off. So i started playing the game by skipping ... Read Full Review

    Magna Carta: Tears of Blood could be the best rpg of 2005. I enjoyed the star ocean series, and am still enjoying the Final Fantasy series as well. And i love this game because it is a mix between those to. Improveme... Read Full Review

    I wasted my time on this game, make sure YOU don't waste yours!

    What the hell is up with developers nowadays,eh? It seems as if the English market for games is getting the short end of the stick. Is it fashionable to release games one year after they’ve been out for the Japanese mark... Read Full Review

    Dance Dance Revolution RPG

    Beautiful intro movie with decent music. Once into the game you have no camera control, a very hard to read font for the text display, and Dance Dance Revolution combat. You CANNOT EVEN ATTACK unless you can time 3 but... Read Full Review

    Not all that bad.

    From some of the reviews that I've read I think this game is under rated. It is a bit okward and slow at times but overall its pretty good. It has a uniqe battle system to it. I'm sure most people have heard about it alr... Read Full Review

    An appatizer, Magna Carta will hold you over until the main course (Final Fantasy XII) arrives

    If you go on looks alone this is easily on Final Fantasy's level. But a very linear story, lack of side quests, and a sometimes annoying battle system, really hurt this game's value. It is strange when you can go through... Read Full Review
