    With a bit of patience, an excellent RPG.

    Fallout

    With a bit of patience, an excellent RPG.

    A good RPG for me requires a few basic things. An interesting story, good characters, plenty of customisation and an interesting combat system. Fallout covers these fields for me. My first pro is its innovative. Its n... Read Full Review

    I liked it.

    Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee

    I liked it.

    The Abe series has always been a favourite of mine, but regardless of this, the second addition to the quintology, Munch's oddysee was a game I enjoyed. However, at the same time, I feel it lost alot of unique aspects o... Read Full Review

    A new Friends of Mineral Town, with a real disconnected feel to it..

    Bokujou Monogatari: Colobocle Station

    A new Friends of Mineral Town, with a real disconnected feel to it..

    Harvest Moon DS isn't bad. But I felt there were things missing. The game starts off with you getting a real weird plot and some bizarre lines that could be chalked up to bad translations, and then being dropped on yo... Read Full Review

    An excellent game.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    An excellent game.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is simply an excellent game. It has excellent replay value, a brilliant graphics engine with minimal loading time, a gigantic map, buckets of variety, a long, fun, immersive story with lots ... Read Full Review

    Yet another DS dungeon crawler.

    Pokemon Fushigi no Dungeon: Ao no Kyuujotai

    Yet another DS dungeon crawler.

    The Pokemon game genre took a steep step down after some of the more popular pokemon games lost their popularity (red, blue, gold, silver, ruby, sapphire, etc). Its no one's fault really. Perhaps I'm just tired of the DS... Read Full Review

    Little to nothing has changed. Barely even plot.

    Geneforge 3

    Little to nothing has changed. Barely even plot.

    Geneforge 1 had a nice plot, fresh graphics, a good levelup system, good interactivity and lots of possibility. Unfortunately, 2 games later they haven't changed a thing. They haven't even attempted to improve it. If yo... Read Full Review

    Smooth and sweet, yet far too short.

    New Super Mario Bros.

    Smooth and sweet, yet far too short.

    New Super Mario bros is a good game, no doubt. It uses an old gameplay formula but re-executes it beautifully, however it is extremely short. Graphics: 7/10 They're pretty nice. They're smooth and 3d-looking yet in 2... Read Full Review

    A complete flop to the crowd's expectations.

    Shadow the Hedgehog (Player's Choice)

    A complete flop to the crowd's expectations.

    Shadow the Hedgehog has what feels like a very linear and small set of levels with a attempted "bad dude" attitude that was executed so badly it can be difficult to finish the game all the way through. While t... Read Full Review

    Satisfying.

    Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!

    Brain training is a good game. Unlike some games, its actually intellectually stimulating and can be alot of fun to play for a while. Part of what makes brain training special is its designed to be played little by littl... Read Full Review

    Sid Meier's Civilization III

    Every now and then, I'll replay this game, and every time I end up getting sucked into the game for hours. I'm terrible at the game and always end up losing, but I still think its a great game. Graphics: 7/10 For its... Read Full Review

    It was okay. Not quite what I expected though.

    Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana

    It was okay. Not quite what I expected though.

    I finished Children of Mana recently and I can honestly say I was expecting a bit better. The game lacks complexity and is almost scarily linear. You are given one town and go on several dungeon crawlers to finish the ga... Read Full Review

    How could this game have possibly been so ridiculously overrated by all the official reviewers.. Its terrible compared to the original and its taken 4 patches to get it relatively playable on modern systems without runni... Read Full Review

    Oh.. Some abandoned facility you don't know the address of? Can't wait...

    Pokemon FireRed Version

    ...What exactly's so great about it?

    I can't believe half the reviews on here. You're all claiming it to be incredible when its a seemingly lazily re-done, way-too-short cop-out that could've been way better. Kanto had already been redone on gold and silve... Read Full Review

    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

    One of the better SNES accomplishments memorable even today.

    This game was superb for its time and even now. For the SNES the graphics are amazing. The gameplay is surprisingly immsersive and it would've made an excellent finale to the mario series. This is one of those RPG's that... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Oblivon is a sequel that makes you wonder why you liked the original.

    Oblivion is based on its predecessor, Morrowind and not only removes flaws and more disliked aspects of the game but improves greatly on both variety and the more liked aspects of the game. Oblivion introduced a brand... Read Full Review

    Good gameplay and weapon choice

    Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

    Jedi Academy has originality as far as the star wars series goes and has good gameplay to boot, however you could almost consider it a half life 1 port if anyone actually used anything but the lightsabre. (just a note: ... Read Full Review

    SoulCalibur III

    Brilliantly re-done with combined features and goodies of both 1 and 2.

    Soul Caliber 3 was expected to be just another repeat of the seemingly dissapointing 2, which lost alot of the gameplay value of Soul Caliber 1. This is not true however, there have been solid improvements on this game t... Read Full Review

    Sonic Shuffle did have some merit to it that made it a memorable and interesting game, despite popular Gamespot belief. The first notable feature is the new-style graphics. These graphics don't attempt realism but a ... Read Full Review

    New interface. Empire Earth 1 with new take-ins and outs for better and worse.

    Empire Earth was a great game. It had a refreshing multiplayer and broad campaign set. The repeat is just as good aside from some of the better little features of Empire Earth 1 taken out. The hype said that this game... Read Full Review

    With new features and a classic expansion to back it up, Hordes of the Underdark is the best expansion given.

    After the somewhat dissapointing Shadows of the Undrentide came the Hordes of the Underdark expansion to re-wet our NWN appetities. The features itself allow alot of new possibilities that player previously would've app... Read Full Review

    A strong new set of features but a weak plot to back it up.
