    Not for the faint of heart or the weak of mind.

    Manhunt

    Not for the faint of heart or the weak of mind.

    Some could compare this game to eating grits: you either like it or you hate it. For me, I at first did not think much of this game. I bought it when it first came out, played it for about a half hour and then it sat ... Read Full Review

    The arcade game given the proper console treatment.

    Double Dragon

    The arcade game given the proper console treatment.

    Not sure how everyone else got their copy of this great game but I remember sending in to Sega for it. And boy were we happy when it arrived. 2 player Co-Op just like the arcade! We couldn't wait to tackle it. And tackle... Read Full Review

    A great game hindered by lack of two player Co-Op

    Double Dragon

    A great game hindered by lack of two player Co-Op

    This game was considered one of the great Beat Em Ups of its time back in the days. I can't remember spending quarter upon quarter playing this game in the arcade. So when I heard it was coming out on the NES I was ex... Read Full Review

    A game that's slowly grown and gotten better with age.

    Fiesta

    A game that's slowly grown and gotten better with age.

    This an MMORPG that is semi hard to really classify. It's got a little of many more popular MMORPG mechanics (WoW, Guild Wars, etc). When beta started, the game was limited and did not have a lot of content. After the... Read Full Review

    One of the classics of CRPGing

    The Bard's Tale II: The Destiny Knight

    One of the classics of CRPGing

    This it the game that started it all for me. This was my first taste of CRPG (Computer Role Playing Game). I was in high school when I wandered into the computer lab and saw people playing it on the Apple IIs (which were... Read Full Review

    The best Resident Evil game on the PS1.

    BioHazard 2: Dual Shock Ver.

    The best Resident Evil game on the PS1.

    Sure there was Resident Evil, but Resident Evil 2 is what really kick started the series and shot it forward into infamy. Weighing in on 2 CDs, this massive zomebie filled game had you controlling not one but two diff... Read Full Review

    A classic PC game comes to the PS1, but doesn't quite translate the same.

    Diablo

    A classic PC game comes to the PS1, but doesn't quite translate the same.

    This classic PC game comes to the PS1. Overall the transition looks good but there were a few flaws and nitpicks I had with this. First, the game saves take up nearly an entire memory card on it's own. PS1 memory card... Read Full Review

    Action/RPG... on autopilot.

    Dungeon Siege

    Action/RPG... on autopilot.

    First a little background fact - The creator of this game, Chris Taylor, put a second mortgage on his house to see that this game was completed, that's how little funding was available. Did it pay off? Oh yes. It went on... Read Full Review

    Wild Arms

    Before Final Fantasy VII, there was Wild Arms

    This is an underrated gem as it actually released just a bit before Final Fantasy VII did in the US. While this may not seem like a big deal, it was a revolutionary game for its time on PS1. At the start, you are give... Read Full Review

    Different from the rest of the series

    Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

    Different from the rest of the series

    This is a game that took things a step outside the traditional Castlevania series. Of all the Castlevania games released on the NES, this one I have the fondest memories of. This one was set apart in that you weren't ... Read Full Review

    The first true RPG on the NES

    Dragon Quest

    The first true RPG on the NES

    Before Final Fantasy, there was Dragon Warrior (known as Dragon Quest in Japan). Who here remembers when Nintendo Power offered this gem of a game as a freebie for subscribing to their magazine? Wasn't that AWESOME?! ... Read Full Review

    A fun romping RPG/Action Beat-Em-Up

    Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari

    A fun romping RPG/Action Beat-Em-Up

    This is one of those little NES gems that fell into so many players laps back towards the end of the NES era. What made this game stand out was the fact it was easy to just pick up and get into. Add the stat building ... Read Full Review

    Earth Eternal

    It has great potential, but...

    Sparkplay definitely took on a nitch market when creating this game. Instead of the usual staple of elves, gnomes, trolls, and such they decided to go a new route with creatures (cats, dogs, etc) instead of humans/humano... Read Full Review

    A "game" that is not for everyone.

    Second Life

    A "game" that is not for everyone.

    You're going to find mixed reactions when you ask people about Second Life (SL). Like grits, some will hate it and some will just absolutely love it. Having been around this game since its beta days, I can say that SL... Read Full Review

    If you loved BurnOut Paradise, you'll love this

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

    If you loved BurnOut Paradise, you'll love this

    Easy to pick up and play. Those few words sum up the gist of this game. For those who have played Burn Out Paradise, you will find yourself in familiar territory, minus the multi-car crash ups, smashing through bil... Read Full Review

    Dead Rising 2

    It is a great game, but still has flaws

    I was very excited to get my hands on Dead Rising 2 when it was announced to be coming out. When I finally did I enjoyed most every aspect of it. The survivor has improved a fair bit over those in Dead Rising 1. The ... Read Full Review

    Great racing game for a casual player

    Burnout Paradise

    Great racing game for a casual player

    This is definitely one of those must have games if you love cars. In the old Burn Out games you were given a selection of events to play and as you beat those events, it opened more and you continued on and on. The sa... Read Full Review

    DOOM II

    A classic game with very few to appreciate it online.

    Boy does this game bring back memories. I remember the anxious anticipation waiting for the freeware demo to come out and when it finally did I played it to death. The next step was to buy the full game. Granted back the... Read Full Review

    Not the greatest game out there but it's got potential.

    Oneechanbara vorteX: Imichi o Tsugu Monotachi

    Not the greatest game out there but it's got potential.

    This is one of those games that is hard to categorize. It's mostly a game that represents the strangeness that gets released in Japan. How it ended up over here is beyond me. This is a game where you hack, slash, and ... Read Full Review
