    Wild Arms 3

    Wild Arms 3 had some promise, but failed to entertain me.

    The battle system was kinda boring, since most of the moves took forever to work and it was way to flashy. There was way to many unneeded cuts during battle, it just gave me a headache, and also could confuse me if ther... Read Full Review

    Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean

    Albert Odyssey's crazy dialog makes it all worth it.

    Albert Odyssey is a special game. Not because of the battle system. The battle system is really generic, and frankly, boring at times. The graphics aren't special. They're just 16-bit graphics redux for a Saturn. Th... Read Full Review

    Suikoden IV was a decent return to form with some big flaws in the way.

    Suikoden IV seemed like a return to form in a sense. There was alot of throwbacks to the first two Suikodens from the battle system to the Unite attacks, to the world map, and loads of other things. This is definitely ... Read Full Review
