The power of choice from Gun A to Speech Z.

The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
House of the Dead returns in this light gun shooter.<br /> <br />

One of the defining real time strategy games exhibits why it is.<br /> <br />

Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy IV for the DS blends the old with the new quite well.<br /> <br />
Remakes are generally hit or miss for a lot of reasons. Sometimes, styles of game just don't make the transition because the trend is different. Other times, so much is changed that the original gam...
Rhythm based games can be fun and are even better when they're free.
Since the late 90s, there's been more and more rhythm games hitting the markets. The success of Rock band or earlier games like Parappa the Rapper is a testament to the success of these games and Aud...
Skies of Arcadia Legends
Exploration, pirates, and role playing all combined into one source.<br /> <br />
As a player of many role playing games, it is a little sad that the Gamecube's library doesn't seem to have a lot of these games. Back in 2003, this RPG-starved library was crying out for something g...
Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest
Simplicity doesn't mean it's good or bad, it's just simple.
Unless you've been living in a cave the last decade regarding video games, you would know that Final Fantasy is one of the most beloved and money making power houses in the video game industry. Once ...
Sid Meier's Civilization
The game that started the long running series is monumental in so many ways.<br />
After so many years of so many good games by Sid Meier, it's hard to believe that even now, it is easy to see the masterpieces for what they are after so many long years. Sid Meier has created many s...
Old School action RPGs might be a lost game form, but it hasn't lost it's appeal.<br />
Arguably, Diablo is the king of all action RPGs. It has teamplay, a good story, and so many items to go through with the randomly generated dungeons, that make each time you play seem like a new expe...

Story driven, this game showcases what an electronic novel should be.
If you've been playing the Nintendo DS for a fair bit of time, you're probably aware that it's appeal is mostly because of it's unique capabilities and different kind of games. Hotel Dusk Room 215, f...
Gyakuten Saiban 4
With added 3-D elements, and great story, the next game in the Ace Attorney series succeeds and fails the same.
The Ace Attorney series has garnered a lot of fans because of it's wonderful characters, well written dialog and the fact that when everything is put together, it's more like an interactive novel more...
Insurrection: Campaigns for Starcraft
Official licensed products made by a third party don't usually work out too well...<br />
The unbelievable success of Starcraft would obviously invite many things to the table. Toys, comics and legions upon legions of fans are just a few things to name but there is one more thing that pe...
An official expansion by another company makes for odd bedfellows.
It would be hard to argue that Diablo for the PC was not a runaway success. It sold millions of copies and the free play on the internet with random dungeons every time you went down to try to slay m...
Randomly generated dungeons with the ring of medieval sorcery at it's finest.
Back in 1996, very few people had heard of Blizzard entertainment. They had mild successes with Warcraft One but Warcraft Two seemed to open some eyes. By the time Diablo came out, everyone was list...
Turn based fun that doesn't do anything new, but does the basics real well.
Taito has released some pretty poor games and some pretty good ones. Lufia & the Fortress of Doom is probably more of the latter. If you've never heard of the Lufia series of RPGs, that's not that s...
Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone
Billy and Jimmy make a return in Double Dragon III but they really should have stopped at two.
Playing beat'em ups in the 80s and 90s, I was familiar with many of the games of that era and Double Dragon was one of the premiere beat 'em ups along with Final Fight and even Streets of Rage. Doubl...
The darker possibilities where magic and technology both play a role in Shadowrun.
Shadowrun is a Role Playing Game that started out in the Pen & Paper format just like Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs but slowly garnered a larger following. As a result, other people began to take...
Final Fantasy IV Easytype
This is absolutely one of the finest Role Playing Adventures there has ever been created.
Almost everyone who has spent any amount of significant time around RPGs has heard of the Final Fantasy. Before it became such a powerhouse in the gaming world, there were a few games to it's name. ...
Chrono Cross (PSOne Books)
The sequel to Chrono Trigger had large shoes to fill and maybe those shoes were just too large.
Back in the 1990s, there were a few RPGs that seemed to really be the heart of what an RPG was. Games like Final Fantasy IV (or 2... stupid renaming malarkey) Secret of Mana, Fallout, Phantasy Star I...
Starcraft: Brood War
The only expansion to Starcraft is monumental simply because it improves one of the greatest games of all time.
One has to admit that Starcraft has been a powerhouse of a game since it's inception into the video gaming world. Ever since the game came out in 1998, the gaming world still has a lot of people's he...
My French Coach
If you want to improve your French while you're on the go, this can assist a bit.
One goal that many people share is to know another language. Mostly, people want to be able to travel to new, exotic lands and to able to converse with people in another tongue but as most people kno...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Return of the Shredder
The Genesis definitely made a game that could compete with the Snes version. Definitely!
Turtles in Time for the Super Nintendo was and is a great beat'em up game starring our four turtle heroes but what did the Sega Genesis have at that time? Well the Genesis' answer was the Hyperstone ...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
A great arcade game that was successfully ported to the Super Nintendo in fine fashion!
Unless you've been living in a cave somewhere the last twenty years, you've probably heard of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in one variation or another. It would be hard to considering there was a...
Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Best Price!)
The 3rd installation of the popular courtroom drama doesn't add anything new but is still a satisfying experience.
For starters, if anyone is expecting this game to be groundbreaking or to introduce all new mechanics and concepts will be sorely disappointed. But what made the previous two Phoenix Wright games so ...
Mortal Kombat: Shinken Kourin Densetsu
The only question you have to ask yourself, is why they changed Sub-Zero's freeze combination.
Let me begin by saying that Mortal Kombat is an immensely popular series of games. Ever sense it came out in the arcade in the early 1990s, it's hard to deny that for a long time, it was MK or SFII f...
Phantasy Star: Sennenki no Owari ni
A fitting end to the series. The only problem is, I wish there was more!
Followers of the Phantasy Star series got a bit of a shock when Phantasy Star 3 arrived on shelves in 1990. The game did not show off it's predecessor's strengths and went the way of the previous gam...
Toki no Keishousha: Phantasy Star III
This game tries to do a lot of new things but fails at the old facets that made the previous two games so successful.
The Phantasy Star series has been very innovative in a lot of senses. It had vehicles in the first game and multiple planets. The second game followed with a great story and even the death of an imp...
Phantasy Star II: Kaerazaru Toki no Owari ni
After nearly twenty years, it's still an amazing game for so many reasons.
If you were lucky enough to play through the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo era of the late 80s and early 90s, you may have been fortunate enough to come across some of the greatest RPGs ever made. ...
One of the Original RPGS, this game definitely helped set the genre for many video games to come.
If you've heard of Phantasy Star lately, it's much more likely that you're aware of Phantasy Star Universe and possibly Phantasy Star Online. Back in 1988 on the ol' Sega Master System, this great ga...
A pretty tough and unforgiving game makes this more than frustrating.
If you're looking for a game with cars, guns and explosions in a high-paced frenetic frenzy, then this game is still probably not the game for you. Action Fighter doesn't really have much of a stor...
Alex Kidd: Tenkuu Mashiro
Forget this forgettable platformer.
Though the Sega Genesis was one of the two premier systems in the early 1990s, it sure did have a lot of games that were probably better left in the vault, locked away and secluded for all time to for...
It's time to save the girl... again.
Back in the 1980s, there was a wide selection of arcade games with every genre but platformers held the greatest spot in my heart. One game in particular I can still remember to this day and with Xbo...
Sid Meier's Civilization IV
There is simply no better world simulation yet to be created.
World simulation games have been generally, a small niche market. I remember back to the days of Populous or Sim City and those games were simply enjoyable because they were unique. Giving you so mu...
