The Mark of Kri – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

The Mark of Kri

Game Description:  An intense and exhilarating fighting adventure experience, The Mark of Kri delivers graphic and gory fighting in a stylish cartoon universe. The gameplay is varied and involves exploration, strategy, and stealth, among other elements. With an engaging story line filled with conflict, magic, and discovery, the game follows Rau, a heroic warrior unmatched in skill and strength, as he battles through richly detailed environments to discover the truth about his family's dark secret. Featuring a completely new and innovative combat system, detailed character design, and clever gameplay, The Mark of Kri aims to breathe new life into the action-adventure genre.

Hunter: The Reckoning – Second Opinion

Mike is basically right when he compares Hunter: The Reckoning to classic run-and-gun games like Smash TV or Gauntlet. However, I wouldn't say that Hunter was an evolution, but rather, more like a genetic anomaly.

Way of the Samurai – Second Opinion

To illustrate his experience with Way Of The Samurai, Chi compared the game to John Woo films, specifically Hard-Boiled. The film is used to indicate his feelings that there are underlying themes of loyalty, morality and honor. I also thought of an influential filmmaker and film while playing this game. Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing was always on my mind.

Shadow Man 2econd Coming – Second Opinion

This new version of Shadow Man plays a lot like the old one—the graphics have been upgraded (the character models look a little more realistic, although they still look like first generation Playstation 2 graphics) and the core gameplay tweaked (theres a wider variety of weapons this time around); but those who played through the first game will find that 2econd Coming is very familiar, flaws and all.

Illbleed

Game Description: B-movie horror-film producer Michael Reynolds offers a million dollars to anyone who can survive his terrifying movie-themed park, Illbleed. Four teenage horror fans—Eriko Christy, Kevin Kertsman, Randy Fairbanks, and Michel Waters—receive invitations to the ghastly park. Filled with enthusiasm, Kevin, Randy, and Michel carelessly rush to Illbleed, leaving behind young Eriko, the main star of the game. Eriko eventually heads to Illbleed to search for her now-missing friends. As Eriko, you must find your friends and survive the horrors of Illbleed. Will you make it out alive?

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem – Second Opinion

With some minor tweaking, Eternal Darkness could have been a great game. The core ideaa horror story wherein the player takes control of a variety of different characters from different eras is an excellent one. The game's scope is nothing short of epic, which makes it a shame that the actual gameplay is so pedestrian.

Max Payne – Second Opinion

Looking at Max Payne, Im going to have to agree with nearly every point James made in his review, especially his view that the game falls short of being an "amazing, breakthrough" title. Is Bullet Time cool? Hell yes. Is it enough to carry an entire game? Hell no.

Way of the Samurai – Review

Way Of The Samurai is like an interactive Woo film in that forces players to make tough decisions regarding loyalty, morality, and honor much like the one Alan made in Hard-Boiled. And much like a Woo film, the game resolves its conflicts with blood-drenched violence.
