    One of the best rpgs of its time. Great storyline. A bit too similar to the first, but still offers solid enhancements.

    Genso Suikoden II (PSOne Books)

    One of the best rpgs of its time. Great storyline. A bit too similar to the first, but still offers solid enhancements.

    [Introduction + Gameplay] The Suikoden series is half extraordinary new ideas and half very traditional rpg. First the unique bits- the selling point of this RPG is that there are 108 characters you can recruit, most ... Read Full Review

    Azure Dreams

  • Review Score:6.9
    It is ugly, flabbergasting, devoid of many demands of the genre.. but it was also so very addictive. Enough to be fun.

    Other Life: Azure Dreams (Konami the Best)

    It is ugly, flabbergasting, devoid of many demands of the genre.. but it was also so very addictive. Enough to be fun.

    When I first heard about Azure Dreams, I thought it sounded like it had all of the makings of a great gimmick title. There are monsters to collect and raise (like in Pokemon) girls to date (like in Harvest Moon or insert... Read Full Review

    The story is sophisticated in telling, ambitious with an enormous scope. All else is solid enough to impress.

    Xenogears: Elyhaym Van Houten Edition (Square Millennium Collection)

    The story is sophisticated in telling, ambitious with an enormous scope. All else is solid enough to impress.

    Storyline & Characters The storyline is easily the most impressive part of Xenogears. I don't even know where to start- it concerns so much. The initial focus is small, but it becomes pretty clear early on that th... Read Full Review

    A charming almost Lunar-esque storyline and very swift, enjoyable battle system are some of this game's major strengths.

    Grandia (PlayStation the Best)

    A charming almost Lunar-esque storyline and very swift, enjoyable battle system are some of this game's major strengths.

    Gameplay Grandia has a battle system that strongly reminds me of a cross between Chrono Trigger and Lunar. First of all there are no random battles. All enemies are on screen and if you run up to them before they detect... Read Full Review

    Tales of Destiny

    More than solid enough at the dawn of its release, Tales of Destiny is too rusty to make for a worthwhile venture today.

    Tales of Destiny (PlayStation the Best)

    More than solid enough at the dawn of its release, Tales of Destiny is too rusty to make for a worthwhile venture today.

    With the exception of the battle system, Tales Of Destiny sports a very traditional gameplay model. There is an adaquately large world map to explore, filled with dungeons and towns and some secrets and mini-games, and y... Read Full Review

    A wonderfully fun and fast new battle system. But the rest of the game is a mixed bag..

    The many screenshots I viewed and reviews that I lightly skimmed through couldn't possibly prepare me what this game actually is. It's a giant mix (well maybe not giant.. but pretty big anyway ^^) of various rpgs we've s... Read Full Review

    I wish there were more games like this.. a mix of music and timed button mashing. But it does feel incomplete somehow..

    Amplitude

    I wish there were more games like this.. a mix of music and timed button mashing. But it does feel incomplete somehow..

    Amplitude is not an average puzzle game set to music. Controls are as follows- you use the shoulder buttons (in addition to the R2 button) to hit one of three different types of nodes that glide past the screen. Nodes ar... Read Full Review

    Beautiful and unique style, I derived inexplicable fun from this quirky little game- despite its massive failings.

    One of the best rpgs out there. Addictive battle system, clever script, very high production values, massive and unique.

    -- Storyline In the first Shadow Hearts, it is only a matter of an hour or so before you are dragged into a very humourous horror-themed mini-story that is instantly engaging. This sequel takes a bit longer to pick up... Read Full Review

    A great balance of gameplay. As much a life sim as a farming sim. Very addictive with likable characters and activities.

    A little bit like Tetris- only hundreds of worlds better. An experiment gone so wonderfully right.

    Radiata Stories

    Great for 30 hours, but after that its weak points become more defined.. Overall, it's both enjoyable and dissapointing.

    This is a difficult game to rate. On one hand, it fails to deliver in the core gameplay that holds your usual rpg together. On the other hand, it impresses ambitiously by putting unusual amounts of effort into little thi... Read Full Review
