Cannon Spike – Second Opinion

I think my main problem with the game is that it doesnt take enough chances. The arcade-style retro approach that the game takes is strikingly different from most games currently on the market, but the designers never exploit it in any remarkable way.

Cannon Spike – Review

Cannon Spike proved to be a good time for a short while thanks to the two-player mode, but it cannot escape the limitations of being an arcade port. Generic enemies, bosses and environments might have made the game progressively unenjoyable, but insufficient continues and a steep difficulty curve made it unbearable relatively quickly. It's amazing that after I set my sights low, expecting nothing more than a fun multiplayer experience, Cannon Spike still managed to disappoint.

Cannon Spike

Game Description: Battle a group of terrorist robots as one of seven characters from popular Capcom games, like Mega Man and Cammy. Other familiar characters include Charlie from Street Fighter, Arthur from Ghosts 'n' Goblins, and B.B. Hood from the DarkStalkers series. New characters include Shiva, an ex-snowboarding champion, and Simone, a fencing champion. The action-shooter gameplay contains both shooting and hand-to-hand combat, and features an isometric view. Players fly around by using "motor boots," and strategically avoid enemies' projectile attacks while counterattacking.

Grandia II – Review

Grandia II isn't a landmark game by any means, but it comes pretty close to being an amazing role-playing game done in the traditional style. It looks great, has solid gameplay, great characters and a well-written story, but it's basically as straight-forward a role-playing game as you're likely to find.

Grandia II – Second Opinion

After forcing myself to sit through Final Fantasy VIII and The Legend Of Dragoon, I appreciate any game or developer that does away with prerendered 2D backgrounds. Though not always as pretty, 3D graphics like those found in the game add a level of interactivity—and dare I say realism—that the aforementioned titles were missing.

Grandia II

Game Description: Dive into a world of fantasy, combat, and magical intrigue in Grandia II for the Dreamcast. You are Ryudo, a young hero entrusted with a vital mission to escort the priestess Elena. In your epic journey you'll explore dank and dangerous dungeons, utilize powerful magic, gather precious items, and battle fierce enemies. Improve your skills, meet scores of colorful characters, and save the world in the beautiful, 3D, interactive, role-playing of Grandia II from Game Arts.

Metal Slug X – Review

Looking at the differences between where videogames have been and where theyre going, youll often find some groups of people saying that they miss the good old days. "Old-school" gaming, as it were. For those of us with enough years under our belts to have been active players on more than one generation of consoles, its a mysterious and sometimes indefinable quality that some claim has disappeared from games crafted today, much to the loss of game players everywhere.
