NBA 2K – Consumer Guide

Grandia – Second Opinion

I must admit, early on in the game, I wasn't overly impressed with Grandia. I liked the overall production values with the exception of the terrible voice acting, but I had issues with other elements. I found manually rotating the camera-angles to be an awkward and disorienting experience for a console RPG.

Grandia

Game Description: An evil army commander is looking for the last remnants of magic in the world, and intends to use the magic to take over the planet. Take the role of Justin and his friends as they explore the world and try to put a stop to the madman. With 60 hours of gameplay, there are plenty of things to see and do. Can Justin and company unravel the secrets of an ancient race and save the world? Play Grandia and find out.

Grandia – Review

The battle system in Grandia is one of the best I've ever seen and this is all the more impressive when one considers that the game's two years old now.

The New Tetris – Consumer Guide

Bottom line, there is no reason to buy this game if you own a previous version of Tetris (or 3 or more like Chi and I do). The New Tetris tries to offer something new with the focus on forming squares, but it could be too much of a departure from the norm for Tetris veterans.

The New Tetris – Review

After all its different incarnations, Nintendo apparently felt Tetris needed a face-lift as much as Leatherface does. The New Tetris, as it's called, is probably the biggest conceptual departure from the original Tetris theme that any "Tetris" game has gotten. Since it's inception, Tetris has been about clearing the most lines and getting the highest numerical score to see who is the best. In The New Tetris, a high score is still desirable, but it is tallied differently; the actual number of lines cleared are the focus and not points given for each, as in the original.

The New Tetris – Second Opinion

Shifting the focus over to building world wonders with lines accrued makes The New Tetris the first Tetris in the franchise to reach 'biblical' proportions. Why 'biblical'? Because the sheer amount of effort it takes to build one of these mammoths made me feel like I actually was a slave in Egypt!

The New Tetris

Game Description: Go beyond all preconceived notions of the mind-boggling puzzle classic, as you take on all-new challenges in fresh environments. The aim is the same: place the falling shapes into lines, leaving as few gaps as possible. Once you complete a line, it disappears, giving you more space in which to operate. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the fabled Tetris series, you’ll appreciate the improved modes of play. With seven innovative environments and all sorts of new options and scoring possibilities, this is truly the next generation of Tetris.
