    Guardian Heroes

    Where to begin? Guardian Heroes was a revelation for it's time in side scrolling.

    *my review from gamefaqs* Where to begin? Guardian Heroes was a revelation for it's time in side scrolling. Although not boasting any true NEW technology it took all the good things about a side scrolling genre, tosse... Read Full Review

    The Adventures of Alundra

    This game was such a genuine challenge, i found myself gleaming with pride whenever i progressed

    Not to say that the game was the most insanely difficult game I ever played, but the game had its fair share of challenges, and I found myself consistently compelled to tackle them and progress the games very neatly conf... Read Full Review

    Half-Life

    FPS's were fun before Half Life, but it changed the face of them permanently thereafter

    There were legendary FPS titles before Half Life. Games like Doom, Wolfenstein and Duke Nukem 3D ruled the day, but then this bad boy came along. Half Life was new, it didn’t use pixels, but rather it used polygons, t... Read Full Review

    One of the many Squaresoft classics from the golden era of 2D gaming, this game really shines

    What an excellent treasure amongst its own series this game was. It had its predecessor released on the GB in the form of FF adventures, and the highly lauded title this one was never released stateside, a true pity. ... Read Full Review

    For many people THIS game was their first FF expereince of all time, and it was a great game to start the series on

    even in light of a new release on the GBA this game still holds its charm. with the only possibility being the 1st Final Fantasy on SNES, this was the one alot of american truly began their FF journey on. The game ... Read Full Review

    X-COM: UFO Defense

    This game had me occupied for such long stretched, it became an unhealthy addiction

    For its time this game was awe inspiring. It's one of those games where you'd just sit and tinker around with the fate of the world, and as you did the sun would set at a rapid pace and you'd realize you just spend almos... Read Full Review

    Diablo II

    Could Blizzard do it? Could they outdo there old Diablo with a sequel that they had been working on for so long?

    Well here it is, Diablo II, Blizzard had a lot riding on this game, and people were expecting a lot from it. Overall I say Blizzard delivered. They brought more of the same where people generally wanted the same and t... Read Full Review

    Diablo

    This is where it started for the big red guy, and although alot has happened since then, this game is strong

    Of course due to a completely overlapping updated sequel it's hard to keep this review in the modern context so I’ll do my best to go retro with this. Diablo was the type of game that, despite even initial high popula... Read Full Review

    The Sequel to the fabled Chrono Trigger, who's plot and sequel relation is wrapped in some serious enigma

    I have a lot of trouble with this game. Some days I wonder why it got a 10 in the GS review, or I find I need to re-read exactly what the heck had happened, and other days I lucidly gush over the game like it is the seco... Read Full Review

    Starcraft: Brood War

    starcraft gets a shot in the arm, not necesarily by a full blown sequel, but by an expansion pack

    This was pretty hefty for an expansion pack, with a significant amount of story as well as unit additions, making it feel closer to a sequel than an expansion. It definitely is a solid continuance of the Starcraft sto... Read Full Review

    One of the Lucas Arts adventure game classics that we sadly do not see from them anymore

    This was the first of these types of games I had played and what a way to start! Being introduced to one of the best in the genre probably spoiled me though. The voice cast was top notch, not forgetting the indomitabl... Read Full Review

    A refreshing and unique direction for a game to be taken

    Illusion of Gaia

    A very intruiging title, that really moved me in more ways than i ever expected it would

    I can never be quite sure what originally brought me to playing this game. It probably was due to the close relationship Squaresoft and Enix had at the time, which naturally made me keen on Enix titles as well. Suffic... Read Full Review

    Starcraft

    I beleive this game continues to hold the top stop for RTS superiority even to this day.

    First of all, I give much due respect to Blizzards other more senior RTS series, Warcraft, but after all, Starcraft was the last rendition of the traditional style RTS from blizzard before they went fully 3d with Warcraf... Read Full Review

    This game took it to the limit for its time, but is not always remembered for its greatness as much as it should be

    The 2d heydey of the SNES may have ended, but that didnt stop Konami from pumping out the best 2d Castlevania ever

    I dont know why this concept wasnt so obvious from the getgo, but systems after the SNES could make excellent 2d games that often could outdo their predecesors if done right, and in this case it was. The graphics were... Read Full Review
