    Fable: The Lost Chapters (Platinum Hits)

    Fable the Lost Chapters brings a new shine to Fable, but its really like applying fresh paint to a used car.

    When Fable was unveiled, with all the things that Lionhead studio trumpeted about being in it, you could almost hear a collective gasp amongst gamers. Of course, when the game was actually released this turned into somet... Read Full Review

    MK: Armageddon is the last game of the current generation. It’s too bad it goes out with a whimper rather than a bang.

    Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

    MK: Armageddon is the last game of the current generation. It’s too bad it goes out with a whimper rather than a bang.

    Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is one of those games that some people are going to rave and rant over and others are going to point and laugh at these people. It’s strange just how much a conversation about this game will pol... Read Full Review

    Odin Sphere is incredibly aesthetically pleasing but the gameplay is boring and repetitive.

    Odin Sphere

    Odin Sphere is incredibly aesthetically pleasing but the gameplay is boring and repetitive.

    Graphics have become a major source of interest in the current generation. To compensate for this graphical obsession we have had to fork out money for newer systems with enough graphical power to render character models... Read Full Review

    Phantasy Star Universe is a good game with fun combat laced with a terrible story.

    Phantasy Star Universe

    Phantasy Star Universe is a good game with fun combat laced with a terrible story.

    Note: This does not include the multiplayer aspect, as I cannot seem to get an account created. To those interested in the multiplayer, refer to the “extra mode” section of the review to get an idea as to what it’s like.... Read Full Review

    DMC3: SE is without a doubt an action game for hardcore gamers only. This is both its main failing and main asset.

    Devil May Cry 3 was easily one of the most talked about action games released for the current generation of systems and for good reason. Many a gamer was drawn into its beautiful visuals, fitting soundtrack, complete wit... Read Full Review

    An interesting storyline with an okay game… that seems a bit backwards.

    Final Fantasy VII is the most widely renowned of the storied Final Fantasy series. While the games were always known for each one being set in an entirely new world, it didn’t take too long for the popularity of the seri... Read Full Review

    Throne of Agony is a decent enough hack and slash it just gets really boring.

    Most people who play hack and slash games usually aren’t looking for the most innovative experience. Give players some cool abilities, multiple characters to choose from and a story that gets you from the beginning to en... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy VII is a really good game that brought bad changes to the series.

    I have always been fond of the Final Fantasy series. I played the heck out of FF 1, 2 and 3… well that is what they were called in the United States. Unfortunately after the release of Final Fantasy 3 I slowly lost all i... Read Full Review

    Fatal Frame

    Fatal Frame was a fair game, but it doesn’t hold up to time.

    I played Fatal Frame 2 before I played Fatal Frame 1 due to the fact that I couldn’t find the first one for the X-Box. At the time, I didn’t have much space on my memory card, so I got the second one and waited on the fi... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Oblivion is one of the best looking games ever and is geared towards all players.

    The Elder Scrolls series has been a constant, but overlooked, face on the PC market. While the games were incredibly innovative in their approach to RPGs they mostly seemed to appeal to a niche group. Not everyone was in... Read Full Review

    Valkyrie Profile Lenneth is one of the best games Square-Enix has ever made.

    The Con is a fun but incredibly simple game… a bit too simple.

    Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords

    Puzzle Quest is a good concept but a seriously flawed game.

    As a longtime fan of the puzzle genre, this game stood out pretty strongly to me. Not only was it a puzzle based game but it had RPG elements liberally sprinkled through it. This produced what amounted to a joy-gasm for ... Read Full Review
