Final Fantasy series has always been about the characters first then battle systems and production. Does it deliver?
Moments I've experienced in the Final Fantasy series has always been about the characters. Say what you want about battle systems but without its characters and their personal nuances, those wonderful summon attacks or l... Read Full Review13 of 15 users found the following review helpful
Fighting games have tread the common ground of multiplayer first. Mortal Kombat breaks this trend and then some.
Nowadays, fighting games have followed the common trend of improving the multiplayer experience and it's completely understandable. Great fighting games boast a wide variety of characters that not only contrast in fighti... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
In a world cluttered with constant releases of military-based First Person Shooters, Portal 2 turns away from the tried and true prepubescent notion that body count, gun upgrades and health buffs are fun routines. Instea... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

The second attempt in this impending trilogy has embraced many changes and it works really well. A long review.
It's no surprise that the people at Bioware are great storytellers. Many game studios strive to reach this level of storytelling but providing a cohesive and memorable narrative can be tricky on popular franchises. Caref... Read Full Review7 of 7 users found the following review helpful
Mass Effect 2
Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy
A potentially good action game is marred with many issues that can frustrate even the most patient gamers.
The Bourne Conspiracy is simply an action filler for those who want to know what else happened in the Bourne timeline. The game plays like a bonus for Bourne fans and in some instances it does well. The game starts prior... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

The World Ends with You
For a first generation PS3 game, Heavenly Sword is a tour-de-force in cutscene graphics and high production values. It takes many pages from several well-known adventure games while complimenting them at the same time. M... Read Full Review3 of 6 users found the following review helpful

An important game that introduced turn-based RPGs. Although, there were other NES games before it that were better.
It's hard to fathom that this game is going to be 30 years old after its American debut. For those who have been gaming since the 80's, gamers understand how important this game was to introduce this type of genre to the... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
One of the better tactical shooters in the market with some flaws that fortunately take little away from the experience.
Rainbow Six Vegas (RSV) starts out strong and puts you right in the fire. You begin in Mexico trying to bring a criminal to justice. Sounds simple enough until you begin to go through the number of political twists and t... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Familiarity is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you will feel that this has all been done before. Same graphics and same gameplay mechanics. Gameplay is mostly the same as you sing, strum or drum your way through a var... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful

Resident Evil 4 has now been reincarnated for the Wii and if you haven't played the game yet, the Wii Edition is, by far, the best version (and hopefully the last) to date. In the original GameCube version, Leon Kennedy ... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful

When I completed this game a few months ago, I had a score in mind before I reviewed it. I decided to revisit the game to see if I would end up changing my score. Nope. I guess I was right the first time. StarFox: Ass... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
