Front Mission 3

Game Description: Using a turn-based combat system; the player controls giant fighting robots called "wanzers" in order to fulfill mission objectives or to defeat foes in mechanical warafre. Robots can be continually upgraded by purchasing or scavenging new weapons/ armor/ computers/ ect. This game takes a new approach to increasing the depth of the game creating the Double Feature Scenario which allows the player to choose one of two completely different character viewpoint within the same general plot of the game.

Front Mission 3 – Second Opinion

This game really surprised me. I generally don't get too excited about turned-based RPGs (I lost interest about midway through Shining Force), but I couldn't stop playing FM3, and it's difficult to explain why. Like Chi, I have mixed feelings about the game. FM3 left me feeling short-changed on several occasions. And yet, this game managed to pull me in and keep me interested. I found myself addicted to the fun battle scenarios, and the story proved just compelling enough for me to keep plugging away at this futuristic RPG.

Wild Metal: Reclaim The Future

Game Description: In Wild Metal, it is up to you to save mankind as you shred across enemy alien landscapes in your attack tank. Choose from one of five models, based on your opponents strengths and weaknesses and the landscape you'll be encountering. Embark on 21 levels as you avoid landmines, sentries, and other hazards in your quest to recover valuable power cores. With an extensive cache of ammo and the ability to fire the turret in almost any position desirable, you're sure to do some serious damage in Wild Metal.

Wild Metal: Reclaim the Future – Second Opinion

I have a fondness for games where simple, focused gameplay takes precedence over other aspects of a game. It's a trademark of DMA where graphics, sound and even plot take a backseat to the gameplay. One of my favorite games is a DMA title that was released on the Super Nintendo called Uniracers. There was no premise or plot, instead the whole objective was to race against other unicycles while performing tricks (similar to Nintendos Excitebike), and I loved it.

Wild Metal: Reclaim The Future – Review

Wild Metal for Sega Dreamcast, however, would definitely pique my dad's interest. There's nothing complicated here—it's a 3D shooter that puts you in the driver's seat of a futuristic battle tank and lets you blow a lot of stuff up. While the game comes up short in some crucial areas, its tight focus on convincing tank warfare is enough to get Wild Metal noticed.

Dead or Alive 2 – Second Opinion

When I first learned about the Dead Or Alive series, it was while perusing the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly Magazine; the editors were openly salivating at the overtly 'jiggly' nature of the female fighters in the game. This was a few years back when the first game hit the arcades and was then ported to the Sony PlayStation.

Dead or Alive 2

Game Description: Dead or Alive 2 brings more phenomenal fighting action to the Dreamcast with the gorgeous graphics and incredibly fast gameplay that Sega fans expect. Dead or Alive 2's character-against-character action takes place in gorgeously rendered locations ranging from a cathedral to a moving elevator cage. In a special twist, characters can battle in multiple locations in many of the areas and interact with the environment. This means that the cathedral window is more than just a pretty background—it's just waiting for an opponent to be hurled through it and onto the fighting platform below. Perhaps the coolest feature of all is the Tag Battle mode—available to one-, two-, and four-player games—that enables fighters to summon a teammate into the action. A total of 12 male and female fighters are available, each boasting a slew of basic and special attacks, tag-team combos, reversals, and throws.

Dead or Alive 2 – Review

Nearly a decade later and dozens of other entries into the genre, things have changed quite a bit. In Tecmo's newest Dreamcast fighting game, Dead Or Alive 2, the gender of playable characters has shifted dramatically to a near equal five to seven ratio; still in favor of males.
