You'll have to fight through them, and not only find out what happened, but if you're going to be able to survive the adventure.The graphics a very stunning, and also very eerie. You're going to be exploring a ship that will have it...

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 Review 0

For this version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour, for the Wii, you'll finally get the chance to use the Wii Motion Plus. You'll get to play as Tiger or many other popular golfers and take on several different courses. Sadly you won't be able to partake in all the courses right off the bat, nor all the golfers. You'll have to earn them through playing  courses and winning rounds. There are a couple of ways to unlock things in this game, a new thing by EA, you can either play to unlock or pay to unlock. P...

Killzone 2 Review 0

Killzone 2 is a first person shooter exclusively for the PS3. You will be taking on the part of Sev, a soldier in the army, who has been sent along with said army to try to capture a very powerful man. You'll have to go through several stages where you're always going to be outnumbered, but you're a real soldier and so it is your job to keep going.The graphics for this game are stunning. This is probably the best PS3 game I've ever seen. The character models, gun models, and level designs look a...

Sonic and the Black Knight Review 0

Sonic has never been the same since his glory days back on the Sega console., but in an attempt to keep the once mighty hero from obscurity SEGA has been more than happy to throw him into anything that will take him. So you have Sonic who is summon to Camelot by Merlina, and it is his task to defeat the once good now evil king Arthur. You will be going through a number of different locals spending most of your time sprinting and swinging your sword. Your sword is the only sword that could hope t...

Final Fantasy Fables Chocobo's Dungeon Review 0

Final Fantasy Fables Chocobo's Dungeon is the latest in a push to create Rogue-like games. You play as Chocobo traveling through different dungeons, all of which are randomly generated with a  couple of exceptions. The move to have this game on the Wii, in my opinion, was because that's what the contract was for. The Wii-mote's abilities are never used. This game utilizes the classic controller accessory, and it uses it well.The graphics for the game are exactly what you'd expect on Wii, there w...

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree Review 0

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree is the popular game's entry into the Wii console. You'll be doing learning exercises to help memory, math skills, logic, and more. The best part is that you get to do it with your Mii, the Wii Avatar you've created, and see your picture plastered all over all the records. This game definitely utilizes the Wii-mote, but on as a pointer system because of that its easy to see why the transition from the DS to the Wii was almost completely painless.Now this is an educat...

Condemned 2: Bloodshot Review 0

Condemned 2: Bloodshot has you once again coming back to the story of an agent who has to go up against things that can't be completely explained, and this time around you get to have a couple more gadgets to help you solve the crimes as they appear.The graphics have you freaking out, well at least I was freaking out because I play in the dark, they cast a lasting image in the brain and are overall crisp. The levels look exactly how you would picture rundown hotels, buildings, etc around a city ...

Trace Memory Review 0

Trace Memory was one of those games that didn't get as much publicity as I think it deserved. The game is a 3D third-person Mystery game. You are stuck on an island looking for those who have disappeared and trying to solve mysteries as you go along. A game that plays much like this one but in first person would be Myst, though this game has no where the length that a Myst would have.The graphics are your standard DS affair. It is done in a cel-shaded fashion and overall the backdrops that you'l...

Lumines Review 0

Lumines is one of those puzzle games that once you figure out the game you are addicted to. Of course once you are addicted to it you have those monumental moments of frustration, but you can't put the game down.This was pretty close to a launcg title for the PSP, if not one. The simplicity of the controls and the rules made it accessible to many different people.The graphics were too much to stare at, but this game didn't have to be graphically intensive. The different icons that you could setu...

Tales of Vesperia Review 0

Tales of Vesperia is the latest addition to the tales franchise. You will once again have to take up the mantel of a misunderstood hero who starts out on an adventure for their own motives, but ends up saving the world instead. This is the first Tales game to make it to the XBOX brand, and I'm sure after seeing the sales go through the roof in Japan, Microsoft will hope that this isn't the last.Teh graphics are pretty solid, they're not going to blow you out of your chair but the look smooth, an...

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth Review 0

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth is a remake/port of the popular but hard to fine PlayStation 1 game Valkyrie Profile. You will be taking on the role of Lenneth a warrior from Valhalla. You will be sent to earth to find and recruit warriors to help the gods combat ragnarok (the end of days basically). This is a 2D-ish sidescrolling RPG that has the power of Norse mythology behind it.The graphics are amazing in the cutscenes and seem to push the PSP just enough for a visual display that is plesant to ga...

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower Review 0

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower is the fighting game's entry onto the PSP. You'll get to play as one of the many characters of DarkStalkers. Just in case you have no idea what they may be there's a vampire, a werewolf, a frankenstein's monster, a mummy, and many more. Basically think of some of the classic monsters and make them a bit cartoony and there you go. This game, however, is not all that fluffy and nice as most fighting games are. There are several modes to choose from ranging f...

Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise Review 0

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise is the new release into the Viva Pinata universe. You will once again need to cultivate the land growing rare and common plant life, attract and now also capture pinatas to add to your garden, compete in competitions, and completely quests.Viva Pinata is a colorful and fun game whose graphics don't neccesarily push the envelop but look pleasing to the every day person. Each Pinata is unique in design, and this time around some of them can be outright humungous. T...

Ninety-Nine Nights Review 0

Ninety-Nine Nights is a game for the XBOX360 that when it came out everyone was hoping for an awesome game. Sadly what people got was a game that was repetitive in actions, and sometimes a game were just plain dumb luck would allow you to die or live to see another day.The graphics for this game were very pleasant to the eye, and the ability to stuff a ton of enemies on the screen with little slow down was nice too. The special attacks looked elegant and stood out as well. The models for enemies...

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions Review 0

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is an update to a very loved PlayStation game. Well it is sort of an update and then again its a port. It takes the game of old and puts some new shine on some places, and gives some additions to others. If you liked the game the first time around you're going to like it this time around as well. FFT puts you in the land of Ivalice where you will have to assemble a group of characters and battle to save a princess and a nation.The graphics are fitting ...

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords Review 0

At the beginning of the Puzzle Quest craze there was a DS and a PC version. Both of which had a pointer system (ie mouse or stylus) which seemed to just fit the game. The popularity took a bit of time to get off the ground but once it caught there was no stopping it. This game presented a different genre to most gamers a Puzzle RPG, and a damn good one at that. You create a character follow a storyline take on different types of creatures, and battle through a puzzle game on par with bejeweled. ...

Contact Review 0

Contact is one of those games that seemed to come out of left field. Its an RPG that revolves around aliens, or what someone thinks is aliens, traveling around a map, solving puzzles, and unlocking all sorts of items.The graphics don't do anything to really impress, they just get the job done. I do like the fact that changing the character's costume, which sadly can only be done on the boat, does actually change the appearance of the character, as well as the weapon that is currently equipped.Th...

Rock Band 2 Review 0

Rock Band 2 indeed starts where Rock Band ended. The game where you can become a world renowned drummer, lead guitarist, bassist, or singer has been made better. There are some things that I don't like about the game, but there are too many good things about the game which make me want to play it until I can't drum, strum, or sing again.The graphics are about the same as last time, but I think there is a bit more variety in certain areas. You'll notice that there a couple more places to perform ...

Resistance: Fall of Man Review 0

Resistance: Fall of Man was one of the first FPS games for the PS3 released. It basically gave you a slightly different twist around the World War II era. You are going to be playing a character that gets infected by a "virus", but yet doesn't have all the regular symtoms that most others experience. You will be left on your own from time to time fighting off mutated soldiers, and using an array of weapons.The graphics in this game are what you would expect from a PS3 game, and the environments ...

Fable II Review 0

Fable 2 brings you back to a world where every action that you decide will shape not only your character but the world around you. Become a pure and saintlike character or become a demon spawn, master the use of melee weapons, ranged weapons, and/or magic. If you are looking for a RPG to sink some time into this could possibly be the game for you.Graphics-wise this game looks awesome for the XBOX360. There might be some issues with the rendering of certain objects if you get the camera angle rig...

LittleBigPlanet Review 0

I've been trying to hold off on this review for a while now because every time I played I felt like I was getting opened up to new stuff. This is a game that starts off as a platformer where you will take yourself through a story mode and unlock goodies that you can then customize your starting spot with and your character. Your character is affectionately called a sackboy, but once you start getting items that you unlock by going through levels you'll see that you can definitely reinvent  it.Th...

Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode 2 Review 0

Penny Arcade's second episode into their adventure into video games was exactly what I expected this time around. I got to play a short game that was slightly over priced on XBOX LIVE ARCADE, where the language once again hurt the overall game, and the content was lacking in parts.The graphics are the cartoony and look crisp. You'll have to redesign your character once you start but the look you can give him is about the same from the first episode. The enemy models are different from the last e...

Endless Ocean Review 0

Endless Ocean is a game in which you will be scuba diving, identifying fish, and documenting underground areas. You will be utilizing the Wii-mote to swim, pet fish, feed fish, get assignments, etc. This game in my opinion really isn't a game, it is more of an aquatic simulation which is coupled with soothing melodies.The graphics are exactly what you'd expect for the Wii, well maybe in some areas a little less than you'd expect. There is going to be a variety of underwater creatures, structures...

Last Remnant 1

Square-Enix latest attempt to show diversity in what they can make that doesn't have the words "Final" and/or "Fantasy" in it seems to glimmer in some parts and cause frustation in others. Last Remnant is a RPG that will have you trying to save not only your sister, father, mother, but the world as you know it. the graphics are probably the biggest problem with the game. I have never seen so much visual refreshing of textures and mapping in my life. Square-Enix should know better than try to mak...

Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party Review 0

The Raving Rabbids series' latest entry is out and if you were expecting about the same with the addition of some games that allow you to use the Wii Board, you'd be right. In this version you have the single player mode, Party mode, training mode, and last World Contest.The graphics are exactly what you have grown to expect from the series. You are going to see a bunch of fat bunny looking creatures running around. You'll get to see some of them in different costumes, and as you play the single...

Yggdra Union Review 0

Yggdra Union is a turn-base strategy RPG for the PSP. You'll be slowly gaining an army to face an evil army that has taken over your country, but on the way you're going to have to discover what is going wrong in other places.The graphics are your standard affair for the PSP. The different models used in this 2-D game look good, a bit cartoony, but for the game it looks good. the actual terrain in the game bothers me. They look like NES graphics. Also it is so hard to figure out if you are stand...

FallOut 3 Review 0

Welcome to post-apocalyptic Oblivion, or at least that's how I feel when it comes to playing FallOut 3. The world has been torn apart and blown to small pieces. As the war really gripped the world some were lucky enough to escape into shelters, or Vaults. In one of these Vaults is where your story begins. If you've ever played Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, you're going to breeze through the learning of controls and such. The music and sound give you a creepy feeling. I really liked the retro radio st...

Persona 4 Review 0

Having never picked up any of the Persona series I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into, but after playing this game I can at least tell you my opinion of this PlayStation 2 RPG. You are a big city kid who has to spend time in a little country town of Inaba. There you create friendships as well as try to solve a mystery that only you and your friends can truly solve.The music and sounds really get old after a while. At first you are so into the game that you don't really notice that the ba...

Chrono Trigger Review 2

Chrono Trigger for the DS is the latest port for the game that many would say is the greatest game ever created. You will take on the role of a regular guy who ends up going all over time trying to right the wrongs, and gaining valuable allies along they way.The sounds were what you would expect from a SNES game that was ported on the DS. I'm not saying that is a bad thing, but what I will say is that this is one of the few games where I actually kept the volume on the entire time.The controls a...

Mirror's Edge Review 0

Mirror's Edge is an action game that has you running from roof top to roof top trying to solve a mystery, while at the same time trying to stick it to the man with your freedom. Basically there's a centralized government that everyone, but the 'runners' have conformed to. There are those out there that use the runners to run missions and errands. You are one of the best runners, Faith, and you have just recovered from a pretty bad injury.The controls are complicated, but at the same time aren't ...

Castle Crashers Review 0

Castle Crashers is a XBOX Live Arcade game in which you and/or your friends will be battling through a side scrolling adventure game, where button mashing isn't a requirement, but will allow you to get that much further into the game. This game was delayed several times, as the developer wasn't quite ready to release it, to the games defense the wait did not hurt the game.The graphics are what you'd expect from a good XBOX Live game. The animations are crisp, you're not going to see an blurring,...

Spore Review 1

Spore is the latest and greatest invention to come out of Will Wright's head. This game was delayed several times, but the following and need for this game would not go away. You will be in control of your own creation from the primordial ooze to intergalactic conquest. You will be able to give your creation as many arms, legs, mouths, eyes, etc that you can afford. This is a true god game, and no wonder different religious groups wanted the game banned. The one thing that this game has going ag...

Star Ocean First Departure Review 0

Star Ocean: First Departure is a PSP remake of the 1996 game of the same name. This is the game that started the Star Ocean series. You will be taking on the role of a tailed, reluctant, hero, as you will discover that you are not alone, and the life you had known isn't all there is out there. A strange disease has ravaged a town, and the cure is something out of this world.The graphics show that it is a remake of an older game, there's nothing that is going to blow your mind but you can definit...

Eternal Poison Review 0

Eternal Poison is a PS2 RPG from Atlus, a studio that is known for releasing some unique looking titles. You will be playing a group of characters that is traveling through the land, which really looks like Europe, but isn't apparently. Your mission is to rescue the princess that got kidnapped by the monsters that appeared when a mysterious monster city rose out of the ground. I promise you you'll be lost as soon as you press start, or actually play prologue, which after you've completed that wi...

Hotel Dusk: Room 215 Review 0

Hotel Dusk: Room 215, is a mystery game for the DS. The game makes you feel as if you are going through a choose your own adventure detective novel. You will play the part of Kyle Hyde, an ex-cop, who is now a salesman who is told to go to Hotel Dusk to pick up a package for your company. What you discover is that the hotel is filled with your past, and other mysteries that you're character gets drawn into.The graphics give me mixed feelings.

Too Human Review 0

Too Human is an action game with hints of RPG from Silicon Knights. If you remember this is the game that the company was suing Epic for because of its tool's limitations. I really don't know what the outcome of that part was, but I can tell you that as a result this was a game that got delayed several times. I think as a result SK finally just wanted to wash their hands of that game so they released it. If you ever wanted to see what a cybernetic Norse myth would look like, this is it.The graph...

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Review 0

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix for the XBOX Live Arcade is exactly what it sounds like. Its a Remix (Remake) of Super Street Fighter II Turbo in HD. I believe you can turn off the HD models for the characters, but I wouldn't recommend it. This is another game in the very successful franchise with some added twists.The graphics look great. You're going to see levels and characters redone to their HD equivalent. I don't really remember seeing that much movement and action in the background...

Gears of War 2 Review 0

Gears of War 2 is the quick sequel to the first game of the same name. When I first heard that this game was going to come out I thought it was too soon too fast, and that there wasn't going to be any real substance to it. I was completely wrong. This game takes where the last one left off and rocked my socks off. You will once again be playing the part of Marcus Fenix, or Dom. You'll have to deal yet again with the Locust that just don't seem to ever truly go away.The graphics are solid on this...
