    Secret of Evermore

    Your average Sci-Fi junkie and his dog are sucked into a weird jumbled world called Evermore. Funny, funny stuff.

    This is a very old game that I will always remember fondly because it was just...funny. This was probably one of the most humerous RPGs I've ever played. Most RPGs back then had most translation partially Americanized so... Read Full Review

    Sword of Mana isn't the most complex RPG there is, but it's style of gameplay make it a unique find for GBA.

    I've always liked the Secret of Mana serise. Every one I've played has not failed to entertain me in some way and I've ended up playing most of those games more than once over. Sword of Mana is the first time I've seen a... Read Full Review

    Samurai Warriors

    Mow down the enemies like little ants they are.

    I don't know why this title doesn't have a larger fan base. Nothing beats totally carving a path though a seeming endless mob of warriors struggling to take you down. Just you and your bodyguards against the world. Feel... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Amazingly huge and detailed RPG, even if it's not as large as previous Elder Scrolls.

    Oblivion is the forth installment of the Elder Scrolls and one of the first REAL quaility XBOX360 games to really show of the system's potental. The graphics are breath taking, the voice acting was done perfectly, and th... Read Full Review

    A very Hot/Cold game. Custom Robo has some very interesting gameplay ideas in it, but one really screwed up a storyline.

    If you dumbed down an Armored Core game a ton and then threw in a good mix of Power Stone like combat you'd have something close to Custom Robo. If you never experience ether of the other games I've mentioned, well, let ... Read Full Review

    A good peice of gameing history and a fun if you have pals over, but it's really short lived.

    I liked playing Metal Slug at arcades whenever I was stuck at a mall or something. Somehow me and my freinds would drain our quarters on it. It was challengeing, involved teamwork, and full of chaos. Very enjoyable. Howe... Read Full Review

    It was a little slow for my taste, but the formula for creepiness is deffinatly there if you are into ghost stories.

    In short, I saw lots of pluses as this game acheived success doing what it set out to do. However, I also think this game takes an aquired taste for haunted houses, japanese culture, waliking and moaning ghosts. For me ... Read Full Review

    I expect this game to be the one to bring Sega back into the spotlight, but oddly enough it seems to limit itself.

    I'm not sure why but I thought sega was finally going to make a big splash with this one. It had only a moderate success, due to the fact that younger childern and die hard fans ate this one up. Who could blame them? It... Read Full Review

    A great start on learning just how much it can take to create a basic RPG.

    This is another "game" that's hard to rate simply because it more of a tool than an actual game. In RPG Maker XP you are given everything you can possibly think of to create your own RPG and it's succsess can only be det... Read Full Review

    Badly designed + Great idea = Sad, disappointing results. It would have been good if anyone tried in it's creation.

    There is really no other way to rate this game. It's more of a tool than anything else and as a tool, it holds different value for different people. I always loved games that allow for some kind of customization or desig... Read Full Review
