Blood Omen 2 – Consumer Guide

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

UFC: Tapout – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains Blood, Violence

UFC: Tapout – Second Opinion

I disagree with Mike on his assessment of UFC Tapout's fighting engine. True, the standing game is not full of dazzling combos, but this is the point, to make a skill out of prediction. Its almost an art to watch for openings in your opponents attacks, and suddenly grab a limb out of the air to slam their body into the ground.

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates – Second Opinion

Once upon a time PC (personal computer) gamers had it much better than videogame console gamers. The PC was a more powerful machine, capable of giving users large 3D game environments and a load of titles console gamers could only dream of having on their 16-bit systems. Times have changed. Now home consoles, like the PlayStation 2, contain power equal to that of the standard computer, if not more. PC-style adventure games like Drakan: The Ancients' Gate just aren't impressive anymore.

UFC: Tapout – Review

I remember a number of years ago, when the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was still in its infancy, the violent and controversial tournament made its way to my hometown. The night of the show, a local, highly experienced and well respected martial arts instructor was asked for his opinion of the tournament. He replied that it is not real martial arts not because the fighters lack technique, but because the martial arts are not really about fighting.

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates – Review

This review is part two in my recent attempt to compare the recent spate of fantasy games starring females. At least two discs with cheesy titles hit shelves within a month of each other, and theyre very similar in a lot of ways. While Drakan: The Ancients' Gates was first to stores, Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat was right on its heels.

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates – Consumer Guide

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

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates

Game Description: In the ancient, decaying world of Drakan, the immortal Spirit Dragons are being held captive. Rynn, a brave female warrior, and Arohk, a fearless dragon, are called upon to save these spiritual leaders, as well as the last remnants of mankind. Embarking on an enchanted journey through eight vast, foreign environments, Rynn and Arohk use magical spells, resourcefulness, and more than 50 powerful weapons in their quest to save civilization. With an immersive story line, stunning graphics, and intense battles, Drakan: The Ancients' Gates places you within a world of magical creatures, mysterious lands, and courageous conquests.

Fatal Frame – Second Opinion

It pains me dearly to score a Tecmo game so low, but in all good conscience I just cant let them slide. Theyve always been known for extremely fun, solid and original games despite (generally) not having cutting edge graphics. Breaking with that tradition in Fatal Frames case, the graphics arent that bad but they seem to have gone astray when it came to the gameplay department. Very, very disappointing.

Fatal Frame – Review

Fatal Frame is a scary and original horror experience. While not a great game, it does deliver on its promise to explore the survival-horror genre from a fresh perspective.
