Steambot Chronicles – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol Reference, Crude Humor, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes

Steambot Chronicles

Game Description: Steambot Chronicles is unique open-ended gameplay and a more polished role-playing experience. Vanilla Beans wakes up to find himself lying on a sun-drenched beach. How did he get there—and who in the world is the girl standing above him? The girl introduces herself as Connie, and Vanilla begins the first busy day of a grand adventure. He'll take Connie home, meet the other members of her band (the Garland Globetrotters), and explore the town of Nefroburg. When a gang of bandits begins overrunning the town, you have a chance to be a hero—or not. What happens after today is completely up to you. Fight a multitude of enemies and gigantic boss mechs against overwhelming odds.

R-Type Final – Second Opinion

In many ways, R-Type Final is the ultimate shmupper's shmup. It sticks fast to its hardcore traditions even when they are in danger of breaking the game—which they will for the many players who are simply unwilling (or unable) to allow such ruthless, patience-testing gameplay to grow on them.

R-Type Final – Review

Solid gameplay will always trump fancy graphics, but that doesn't mean that 2D titles can get by without any sort of graphical enhancements. But what can be done with a traditional side-scroller like R-Type Final to make it appealing to a new generation of gamers who've probably never even played the original in an arcade? How about, for starters, giving it some sparkling graphics and a quasi-3D engine (similar to the one found in last year's Contra: Shattered Soldier) while retaining all the twitchy trigger-finger gameplay of the originals?

Sub Rebellion – Second Opinion

I'm with Brad all the way. Sub Rebellion is one of those perfectly solid, perfectly enjoyable games that unfortunately no one bothered to play.

Sub Rebellion – Review

Fans who have been starved for either submarine games or shooters are in for a real treat. Neither genre has been especially plentiful in the last few years, so when a game comes along that combines the best of both worlds, its a rare opportunity that needs to be savored. Being most famous for diabolically difficult shooters such as the cult classic R-Type series, developer Irem now brings its own brand of finger-blistering action 20,000 leagues under the sea.

Sub Rebellion

Game Description: Staying one step ahead of the enemy is critical as the Chronos sub battles evil using guided nuclear, ultrasonic, and acoustic torpedoes for underwater overkill or surface-to-air missiles and short- and long-range weapons for above-the-sea mass destruction. A total of 10 different subs are featured in the game. As a unique offering, players can upgrade and modify their Chronos sub by finding bonus items along the way or by purchasing powerful new engines, shields, skins, and torpedoes. Among the many great new features in the game are a fantastic display of hyperrealistic water physics, lighting effects, and gorgeous 3D animation.
