    This game has a lot to offer and thankfully isn't very big in micromanagement.

    Sword of the Stars: Argos Naval Yard

    This game has a lot to offer and thankfully isn't very big in micromanagement.

    I bought the original SotS when it came out, before the expansions. It was fun back then and is just way better now. I have only played games where I set the parameters, having not tried any of the condition-based settin... Read Full Review

    The game that launched a series in the USA.

    What can I add that hasn't already been said for this game? I remember the Summer this game came out, toting around an issue of Nintendo Power or somesuch magazine that had a review of this game. I looked over this revie... Read Full Review

    As a stand-alone DnD game, it is ok.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun

    As a stand-alone DnD game, it is ok.

    I never did the pen and paper DnD nor was I fortunate enough to own a computer to play those very old-school ADnD games and I think I just totally missed on some of those NES DnD games. My first run in with this game was... Read Full Review

    Shadowrun

    A very revolutionary game for its time.

    I still can't believe they made a Genesis and an SNES version of Shadowrun, with both games being wildly different from each other. I rented each, certainly more than once each, when they came out. I suggest you go find ... Read Full Review

    Good for what it is. Don't expect it to be Phantasy Star II, cuz it is not. Still, very much worth playing!

    Toki no Keishousha: Phantasy Star III

    Good for what it is. Don't expect it to be Phantasy Star II, cuz it is not. Still, very much worth playing!

    One of the very few Sega Genesis games that I ever bought. Being a kid, I didn't have a lot of money to buy lots of games, so that means I rented a ton of stuff instead. I did rent this game before I bought it, and it wa... Read Full Review

    Sega Genesis swan song

    Phantasy Star: Sennenki no Owari ni

    Sega Genesis swan song

    I did own the Sega Genesis but never actually bought this game. I did rent it, though, and played it for hours on end, trying desperately to get far in this game. This game is far and above Phantasy Star III and is on up... Read Full Review

    An iconic masterpiece.

    Phantasy Star

    An iconic masterpiece.

    I can't believe this game came out such a long time ago in 1988. I never owned the Sega Master System. Instead, we owned the NES. Luckily, in the late 80's and early 90's, I had a close friend who did indeed own the SMS.... Read Full Review

    Interesting at first, but then becomes a slog.

    Royal Blood

    Interesting at first, but then becomes a slog.

    An interesting take on Koei's part, making a strategy country-management type game with a fantasy twist. That being said, the game is lacking. I first played this game when it initially came out. I rented the game and pl... Read Full Review

    I played Dawn of War II first, then Dawn of War. That was a mistake.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

    I played Dawn of War II first, then Dawn of War. That was a mistake.

    I've only played the single-player campaign so this is what my review is covering. This is pretty much your standard RTS fare, set in the Warhammer 40k universe. Your objective is to destroy the enemy and you do this by ... Read Full Review

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

    Really good single player campaign. Will leave you asking for more.

    This review is for the single-player mode, not the multi-player (cuz my internet service is horrible). I bought and started playing this game before playing the first Dawn of War game. After buying and then playing t... Read Full Review

    An improvement over it's PC counterpart. Fun to play!

    Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday

    An improvement over it's PC counterpart. Fun to play!

    I don't know how appealing people will find this game if they weren't around when it first came out. Renting an RPG is pretty much an exercise in futility. It's almost always impossible to beat the game by the time you h... Read Full Review
