Stylus action! (it's good) 0

   The World Ends with you is from the famous RPG developer, Square Enix most well-known for their Final Fantasy series.  However Squeenix (as I like to call them) took a risk with this new IP and it paid off for them.    Style.  That’s all that needs to be said about the visuals but I’ll delve deeper.  The World Ends with you is heavily influenced by anime art styles.  Each character looks refreshingly unique and what they wear really tells you a lot about their personality.  The enemies also l...

A solid sequel to the PS3's premier launch title 0

   Resistance 2 is a first person shooter by the well-known Insomniac Games.  It is hard to believe but this is their fourth game on the Playstation 3 (Resistance: Fall of Man, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, and Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest for Booty).  Resistance 2 is an improvement from the first game in almost every way, but the key word is almost.    Starting off, the game’s visuals are technically sound.  You might find some muddy textures here and there and the characte...

Out with the old, in with the new 0

   The original Prince of Persia came out in 1989 from Jordan Mechner. Fourteen years later in 2003, Ubisoft picked up the rights and revitalized the franchise with a trilogy of new games: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. All of them were a critical and financial success. That leads us to right now where Ubisoft has restarted the franchise once again with a new prince, a new story, and a new world in the aptly titled Pr...

The Definitive Console RTS 0

Ensemble Studios is a name known throughout the entire video game industry for their expertise at crafting fantastic RTS experiences such as the Age of Empires series and Age of Mythology.  Unfortunately, however, the studio has been closed, but it went down fighting.  Halo Wars is a huge success and a worthy last hurrah for the storied studio.   When I first saw the game, I was a bit skeptical of its graphics.  They didn’t look very polished and looked a little cartoony but they fixed that for ...

Mirror's Edge is a brave foray into a new genre with a few gripes 0

    Mirror's Edge is a first person free-running game from Battlefield veterans DICE Studios.  There has been much skepticism about the game thinking the gameplay and controls couldn't work.  Well they do and Mirror's Edge is worth the money.    Mirror's Edge is about a runner named Faith who is trying to find out who framed her sister for murder.  While the story isn't super deep, it does what it does well, with some decent looking 2-d cutscenes.    Like I said earlier, gameplay was a big quest...

An extremely fun game that was too harshly criticized 0

   Too Human is a third person action RPG by acclaimed developer Silicon Knights (Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, Legacy of Kain).  This game has been widely known for its development time and a lawsuit with Epic along with Dennis Dyack, the company's president, voicing his opinions.  Unfortunately that has skewed people's views and opinions about the game.  Some people won't even give it a try.  Hey... their loss.   The story takes place in Norse mythology with standby favorites Thor, Odin,...

Final Fantasy X is one of the best RPGs of all-time. 0

Final Fantasy X came out back on December 20, 2001. It was the first Final Fantasy to come out on the PS2 and caught the video game world by storm. With advanced 3D character models and voice acting, it was one of the most amazing role-playing games of its time and still is.The combat in FFX takes a step away from the traditional Active Time Battle system that the series is known for in favor of the Conditional Time Battle system. In my opinion, I think it is better. Instead of a meter filling u...

Psychonauts has a ton of comedy and fantastic gameplay. 0

Raz is slowly becoming psychic and his father who hates psychics starts to notice and makes him practice even more. Raz eventually gets his hands on a pamphlet about the Whispering Rocks camp to train Psychonauts. After that...

Madden 07 for the Wii is Awesome 0

Madden NFL 07 is the latest version of the long running Madden franchise from developer Electronic Arts. The past few years Madden has started to become stale. In my mind though, this version has revitalized the franchise with amazing gameplay.The gameplay in Madden NFL 07 for the Wii is extremely intuitive. If you are still having trouble, it has a great tutorial mode that teaches you everything. You actually throw in this game. It feels awesome. All you have to do is hold down the button of th...

GRAW is Very Solid, But Not Perfect 0

IntroductionTom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is a third person tactical shooter with some squad elements mixed in and overall, is a beautiful game that, most of the time, is fun to play.GameplayThe gameplay in GRAW is solid. The controller rumbles every time you shoot a bullet, are close to an explosion, or get hit. The campaign is decent sized at around 10-12 hours. On most of the missions, you will have a squad of three by your side. These three are smart (most of the time). You ca...
