Ys Seven Review:Ys Seven Review:

Roll Dogi roll!

For those who are familiar with the Ys series, you will know that it usually revolves around two adventurers: Adol the Red and his companion, Dogi. And for those of you who enjoy a good Action RPG but have never heard of the Ys series before, you should be ashamed of yourselves. But, if I just so happened to pique your interest in this title, and you own a PSP, then you can redeem yourself by picking up Ys Seven. I’m willing to let go and forgive.

Metroid: Other M Review:



Metroid: Other M Review:

Review: Metroid: Other M

‘M’ is for marvellous.

The latest title in the venerable Metroid franchise is finally upon us, and with it comes the greatest amount of hype and excitement that the series has ever seen. Hype created by the radical new direction that Nintendo and series newcomers Team Ninja have decided to take with Other M, both in the gameplay and in the storytelling. However, these changes beg the question: does this collaboration of gaming giants elevate the Metroid franchise to new heights or does it leave Samus a few charges short of a super missile?

undefined Clash of the Titans Review:

Kratos does it better.

Let's admit it, if you know anything about predicting the quality of videogames by now, it's that movie-based games are most likely not very good. Unlike other movie games, Clash of the Titans: The Videogame was delayed until a few months after the movie release, so perhaps some effort was actually put into this title, right? While I admit that the introduction of Hades as the sour villain in the re-released film adaption, Clash of the Titans, was potentially a change for the better, the movie still fell short. Being a fan of the original film, I owed it to myself to watch the movie and play the game. So, let's see how a videogame based on a poor remake of a great movie fares.

undefined Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow Review:

You got Diablo in my Blue Dragon!

As a franchise, Blue Dragon has seen its fair share of "re-workings" since it first made an appearance as a jRPG back in August of 2007 on the Xbox 360. It's simple, traditional, yet addicting gameplay shone through the multitude of shooters and 3rd-person titles that littered the console, garnering a generally positive reaction from the gaming community. With its success both in Japan and overseas, two different manga and an anime were green-lighted, as well as the real-time strategy, Nintendo DS "sequel" Blue Dragon Plus, and now most recently, Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow



 

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies ReviewDragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies Review:

Please don't run metal slime.

Dragon Quest remains one of the most popular JRPGs and it is the best selling series of its genre. Many have been anticipating a western release for over a year now, and even though games in the series are known to maintain core elements of their predecessors, Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies doesn’t really offer anything new, besides a limited character creator and a frustrating online multiplayer system.

Reading on the go!

When the Nintendo DS first came out everyone was excited about the world of possibilities it opened up. Indeed, as time went by players saw some truly fascinating and innovative game titles that redefined the videogame experience. So far, however, the possibilities the DS could offer outside of the gaming universe haven’t been exploited. 100 Classic Books falls in that tiny category; it’s not really a game, it’s much closer to being an application than anything else, in that it allows you to use the DS as a portable, electronic library, full of literary classics.

 



BioShock and Half-Life called, they want their ideas back.

And they’re not the only ones. To say that Singularity borrows heavily from other games within the FPS genre is a massive understatement. Indeed, I think you would be hard pressed to play Singularity without name checking some of most iconic games of the generation. This doesn’t make it a poor game though, not by any means. The ideas it takes from other games tend to be well implemented and it makes for a decent game, but it’s also one which offers nothing new or truly standout.

 




Blur Review:

Like Need for Speed engaging in a Glee-style mash-up with Mario Kart…but it could have used more of both.

Blur had a great marketing campaign. Cutesy little characters racing around in a faux Mario Kart or Mod Nation Racers style with cutesy little cars firing cutesy little weapons. Then one little ball of adorable pulls over, gets out, and watches real licensed cars racing asphalt streets with destructive weapons. The theme: Mario Kart grows up.

 

 



Green Day: Rock Band Review:

Green Day: Rock Band Review:

From punk to Broadway, Rock Band makes a must-have for Green Day fans.

In 1994, Los Angeles punk band Green Day released Dookie to immediate success. That album has since gone diamond, selling over 10 million copies. Green Day went on making punk music and experimenting with their style, finding new popularity with 2004's American Idiot and continuing that success into 2009's 21st Century Breakdown and now even a Broadway musical based on that album.

 

 




 

Tournament Of Legends Review:

Tournament Of Legends Review:

At least the box art is kind of cool.

When Tournament Of Legends was first announced (at the time it was known as Gladiator A.D.) there was a general level of excitement for the game; it was violent (see: very violent), it was set in an era that not many games had dared to explore, and the developers (High Voltage Software) were the talk of the hardcore gaming audience on the Wii, thanks to the recent success of The Conduit and the announcement of The Grinder. So where exactly did it all fall apart?

To help answer that question, here’s a quick crash course in what you should expect when you slide the disk into your Wii console: Tournament Of Legends is a 3D fighting game, similar to the ones that had their heyday back in the days of the Sega Saturn, Playstation and Nintendo 64, but today seem to have fallen to the side in order to make room for the current revival of the 2D fighting genre.
