World of Goo
There were two great influences in my early youth. One was Disney, mostly the animated films like Beauty and the Beast and especially The Lion King. Later on, I got into videogames, mostly role-playing games. The most im... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories
Having been a fan of the original Disgaea, I automatically picked up the sequel. The Disgaea series (now spanning 4 consoles) is well known for doing things a bit differently from other games. It is a turn-based strategy... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
While it is a perfect assortment of games and a neat collector's object, I feel there are too many missed opportunities.
I recently got my hands on The Essential Collection. It's quite impressive! The box art is fabulous. Every game comes in a separate box with original box art from the series' artist. The three games included are the orig... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Final Fantasy X
The biggest comeback a series could hope for. Metal Gear Solid 3 will be remembered for years to come.
For about a decade now, I've been a huge fan of Hideo Kojima's work. I've played the Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders series, and even had the chance to play Policenauts. Now, trying to wrap my mind around the Metal Gea... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Harvey Birdman has got to be one of the best animated shows Adult Swim has had to offer. Translating what's good about the show to a game is a very simple task for that reason. Characters are terrific and the dialogue is... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Maximo vs Army of Zin
A good example of a sequel that improves on just about everything. Army of Zin is definitely worth a try.
Maximo is possibly one of the least known and least liked characters released by Capcom in past years. Much more interesting characters like Dante of the Devil May Cry series have taken the spotlight. Taht aside, the ser... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Many times, I've asked myself if one can truly consider videogames as an art form. Really compare it to poetry, film or music. If this were the case, then one could easily say that a good game, much like a movie or a boo... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
Games nowadays have taken on the trend of easening up on players, normally stripping games away from what used to be considered defining qualities. 2D platformers and 3D platformers alike almost never lacked certain trad... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Ratchet & Clank
Anyone's who owned a PSone has most probably played Spyro the Dragon once in their lives. If they haven't they most definitely should, because it a game that was ahead of it's time both in visuals and in aesthetic. Next ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Objection! A gripping story and a groundbreaking style of gameplay isn't all that make Phoenix Wright worth a try!
Phoenix Wright is what I consider an all round great game. It may not be necessarily flashy with its graphics, but it packs much more than that. It wraps you in from the very instant you start playing. The story is so we... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
Hilarious dialogue, interesting characters and a great story make it a must play for anyone with (or without) a pulse.
With so many great selections to choose from on the Nintendo DS, it's still somehow hard to find a truly original and inspiring title. Nintendo consoles have the sad knack of being full of franchise spin-offs of their mo... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
At first glance, Yoshi's Island DS seems like an uninspired rahash of an old classic. Well, looks can be deceiving!
If you're like me, then chances are you owned a Super Nintendo when you were younger. If you didn't I can happily say you missed out. But if you did, then you probably know what Super Mario World 2 is. It was the "Great,... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Resident Evil: Deadly Silence
Resident Evil is a game that has gone down in history. In 1996, it amazed people on the Playstation for being absolutely unlike anything else of its time. It was a game that almost seemed to be pushing the limits of narr... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Being the first game I ever played on any console, it's obvious that Super Mario Bros. has a very special place in my heart and of course, the heart of many others. When a game series happens to be rather uninventive wit... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Tekken 5 does exactly what it's predecesors have all done. It's just an extremely good fighting game.
The Tekken series has been around for a long time. When the first Tekken game came out, many considered it fresh and innovative. A 3D fighting game complete with sidesteps, grapples and a button dedicated to each limb. I... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
A very challenging, yet simple puzzle game. Probably not suited for anyone familiar with PopCap games.
I wasn't aware that Atlus released puzzle games. Perhaps they don't often and that would explain why this game doesn't stand out too much from others. Don't get me wrong, Droplitz is a decent game, it just doesn't have ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
My play through Puddle was interesting at best. I started it and was pretty surprised at how challenging I found some of the courses. The game is for free and actually downloadable here on the site, so there's really no ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Fanatics will find some great additions to a great game, but will unfortunately find themselves still wanting more.
I'm personally not the kind of gamer who could possibly play a game long enough to get bored and need an expansion of the same game. In fact, Oblivion still has this clutch over me, because there are so many corners unto... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
It's been a while since I don't write a review on such a tremendously large and time consuming game like Oblivion. I started playing it back in April, so it's easily been 3 months with the thing while I found the right w... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Here is a genre of games I personally have had enough of. It seems as though '05 was just booming with FPS games and most of them have already been forgotten. The ones that weren't had sequels made of them. So finally ha... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Portal (PC) If someone had told me that I was going to play a first person shooter/puzzle game about portals and cakes before I had the chance to play this, I probable would've played it anyway. It just sounds so int... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Keep in mind my classification. *Writes down "Best in Series" and underlines it until his pencil breaks.
Sometimes what makes a game hard to review are the feelings one gets from playing it. They are the expectations we get from getting our hands on the sequel to one of our favorite series. Sometimes nostalgia isn't enough ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Silent Hill 3
(Just wanted to point out before continuing, I played Fahrenheit, not Indigo Prophecy, but they are apparently the same thing aside from some adult content that was removed.) I've played many games since my stay here... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Devil May Cry
Devil May Cry doesn't redefine the action genre. Instead, it created its own world and became master of its domain.
My experience with Devil May Cry games is limited. I can only say that playing the original Devil May Cry had a bit of a two sided coin effect on me. It was something I felt could be described in few words. I'd say it's ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
