    Nostalgic video gaming that money couldn't buy. Shame it's a bit streamlined.

    Mass Effect 2

    Nostalgic video gaming that money couldn't buy. Shame it's a bit streamlined.

    The first game must have been one of the best 3rd person RPGs of its time on the Xbox 360. This long awaited sequel really took the ME story to a whole new scale. Bioware has really tooks the faults from the ME seriously... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider: Legend

    It's good despite it's flaws, and I love it.

    I've reviewed the Xbox 360 version of this game, but I had this game before my 360, back when my PC wasn't pimp enough. The graphics in comparison to the 360 version? A lot better. If you run a game as old as this on ... Read Full Review

    The best RPG I have played for the PS2 and I love it.

    Dragon Quest VIII: Sora to Umi to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi

    The best RPG I have played for the PS2 and I love it.

    This game is really good for many reasons. First off it has a really brilliant story. You start off as a nameless Hero who has to travel across the DQ8 world; to chase down a jester by the name of Dhoulmagus, who has pla... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy X (Mega Hits!)

    The first Final Fantasy game for the PS2 and they messed it up spectacularly. But it isn't without some good points.

    I like Final Fantasy, don't get me wrong. It's a bit obvious from my user name. But FFX has been, well butchered. The story at first was a nice start, but then the end left the kind of empty and confused feeling that mad... Read Full Review

    It's good, but it's hard.

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

    It's good, but it's hard.

    Final Fantasy VII has probably been overated, but it sure was a successful game out of the series made by Squaresoft. To be this much successful for over 10 years and to have made some prequels, sequel and a CG movie. Cr... Read Full Review

    Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei

    It's fun but a litlle frustrating.

    A nice sequel that actually is a proper sequel. It relates to the GC Wind Waker quite nicely. The graphics for the DS is good but it could have been better. For a sequel to Wind Waker, they made good use of the art desig... Read Full Review

    Good gameplay, good co-op.

    What better way to spend boys/girls' night in by failing on teamwork.

    A slightly better sequel, with a few additionals to spice up the gameplay. It also has some nice unlockables if you completed the first game. It depends on how much progress of the first game you played through. My frien... Read Full Review

    I have two versions of this game, one on Xbox 360 (already reviewed) and another on PC. To be fair, I did buy this first, but my PC wasn't powerful enough. Now that my PC is on Windows 7, I can review it finally after al... Read Full Review

    A nice game to play, if you like that sort of cheese.

    A game that finally cranked up the difficulty and subjected me to extreme torture.
