    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 sc...

    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 ga...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 w...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...
