    Sigma Star Saga

    Sigma Star Saga has many interesting ideas, but unfortunately fails to put these ideas together into a compelling game.

    Sigma Star Saga has what seems at first to be an incredibly exciting premise: play an RPG with a battle system that will remind you of games such as gladius. It was a game I simply couldn't resist picking up. Unfortun... Read Full Review

    Digital Devil Saga 2 is an outstanding RPG that is a must play for hardcore fans of the genre who can handle difficulty.

    Note: It is NOT recommended to play this game before you have finished, or at least played an extensive amount of the original Digital Devil Saga. It would be virtually impossible to fully understand many key story eleme... Read Full Review

    Mario and Luigi 2 is a highly enjoyable RPG. While certainly not flawless, it maintains a high level of entertainment.

    Shadow Hearts: Covenant is an incredibly unique RPG that is an absolute pleasure to play. I cannot recommend it more.

    Shadow Hearts: Covenant is a game that I long avoided. I personally didn't think it looked very appealing, and when people started saying it was better than Star Ocean, I simply took that to be fanboyish fantasies, as I ... Read Full Review

    World at War is an excellent introductory level wargame with a ton of depth and plenty of replay value.

    This is my first real wargame, and as such I'm reviewing it not as an expert with the genre, but as a newcomer. Please forgive any mess ups on terminology for war games or any errors I have with strategy in advance. G... Read Full Review
