    Tales of Legendia offers an interesting story, but the experience is hindered by bad design choices and cliches.

    Tales of Legendia

    Tales of Legendia offers an interesting story, but the experience is hindered by bad design choices and cliches.

    I love the Tales series, and Tales of Legendia is easily my least favorite. This game came after Tales of Symphonia, and this was a HUGE step back for the franchise. Luckily, Tales of the Abyss later got the series back ... Read Full Review

    Tales of Symphonia

    This should be required gaming for all JRPG fans.

    If you like JRPGs, I'm sure you've head of this game at some point or another. It has just about everything that JRPG fans love about the genre. If you like Final Fantasy, Shin Megami Tensei, Star Ocean, or any similar J... Read Full Review

    Persona 3: Fes

    Persona 3 FES is a unique role-playing experience that's essential for just about any fan of the genre.

    Persona 3 FES is a unique, though flawed, role-playing game that integrates unique concepts, which in turn prevent some of its generic elements feel not-so-bland. The story revolves around an organization known as S.... Read Full Review

    Tales of the Abyss

    It's a little rough around the edges, but it's very addictive and enjoyable.

    I've played Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Symphonia, and I loved both of them. However, I didn't like Tales of the Abyss as much as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong-I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's just as addictive and fun... Read Full Review

    When at its best, it's a lot of fun, but it relies too much on the success of its prequel.

    When at its best, it's a lot of fun, but it relies too much on the success of its prequel.

    This review is spoiler-free. The good: -Combat is fun -Good plot -Explores the characters from Tales of Symphonia a little more The bad: -Monsters make the combat frustrating at times -Alice is one of the most... Read Full Review

    Sonic Heroes

    There are better Sonic games available nowadays, but Sonic Heroes is still worth a look.

    Aside form the portable titles (apparently those don't count), Sonic Heroes was the last good Sonic game before Sonic was molested by the hands of mediocrity. Sonic has recovered form the traumatic incident, which shows... Read Full Review

    A game that will forever withstand the test of time.

    Sonic CD

    It's a lot of fun, but...

    To me, Sonic CD was a bit of a departure from other Sonic games. It's undeniably fun, but it's really gimmicky, albeit obnoxious. This game isn't for every Sonic fan, but it's still a solid platformer in its own right. ... Read Full Review

    Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (Reprint)

    It has a few drawbacks, but it's overall one of the Blue Blur's better 3D outings.

    Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is a port of Sonic Adventure 2 for the Dreamcast, and the major difference between this version and the DC version is the added lackluster multiplayer (though it can be occasionally fun). If you ... Read Full Review

    Luigi's Mansion

    Its concepts fall victim to repetition, but its unique charm sustains the short adventure.

    Luigi's Mansion was ultimately a tech-demo to showcase what the GameCube was capable of. Overall, it's not that bad, but it's not great either. The story starts out with Luigi locating a mansion that he won in a cont... Read Full Review

    Tales of Vesperia is a compelling adventure that keeps you playing for hours, and it's one of the best RPGs on the 360.

    ***This review is spoiler-free*** When it was first released, Tales of Vesperia caused a sell-out of the Xbox 360 in Japan, and it was definitely good enough to cause a sell-out. The story starts off with Yuri Lowe... Read Full Review

    Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is arguably Mario's best GameCube outing.

    While it has a few notable problems, Sonic 4: Episode 1 is a decent throwback and a solid step in the right direction.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 is quite simply the best platforming experience on the Wii.

    At a first glance, Super Mario Galaxy 2 may seem like a sequel that offers more of the same, but I can assure it's most definitely not. It's everything its predecessor attempted to be and more. [Insert cliche joke abo... Read Full Review

    Donkey Kong Country ages well because it offers more variety than most platformers.
