Panzer Dragoon Orta – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Violence

Defender – Second Opinion

I have to admit it. Had I not chosen to review Defender, I probably never would have played this game. As I saw it, this title didn't appear to have much riding for it. Brad commented that one of the reasons why Midway decided to give this particular game a modern age overhaul is due to the immense popularity the original amassed.

Robot Alchemic Drive – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Robot Alchemic Drive – Review

There have been "Big Robot" games available as long as there have been consoles, but we've had a real bumper crop this year. I'm certainly not complaining, but the games in this genre typically share a number of traits, and with so many released in such a short time, it only magnifies their similarities. Don't get me wrong; I'm definitely a fan, but a greater amount of variety and divergence is needed.

Defender

Game Description:  Prepare for an out-of-this-world, 3-D flying experience with the remake of the arcade classic Defender. Players must defend and protect the human race from an alien invasion as they assume the controls of next-generation combat-ready Defender ships. Battling an onslaught of vicious aliens, players strategically pilot their ships through more than 14 treacherous missions spanning the solar system, executing dynamic tactical maneuvers such as barrel rolls, 360-degree loops, and spinning reversals in order to evade the enemy.

Defender – Review

Like the saying goes, everything old is new again. In recent years, weve seen a fairly sizable resurgence of classic titles attempt to make lightning strike a second time. Its pretty clear that some have been more successful than others, although I think the key to pulling it off is in retaining the core elements while also significantly expanding on them.

Phantom Crash

Game Description: In the year 2031, Tokyo is suffering from massive air pollution and thermal island phenomenon. The Japanese government has moved its capital to Neo Tokyo City, a shelter city built on an artificial island. Shinjuku and Shibuya of old Tokyo have been closed off to civilians to protect them from collapsing buildings, and the vicinity has been declared "Trash Area." And now in the middle of Trash Area a battle game called Rumbling has started, in which participants pilot Scoobee, a highly mobile close-combat vehicle, to destroy the opponent, earn the prize, and climb the ranking ladder. Since the day it started being televised, Rumbling has thrilled viewers with the excitement of destruction and suspense coming from the invisible danger of optic camouflage. In 2031, Rumbling has become the biggest entertainment in the history. The gladiators of this new era aimed for just two goals: strength and style.

Phantom Crash – Review

If you've been following the release lists for a while, Microsoft's Xbox has been looking like the place to be for fans of big robots. There were an amazing amount of laser-firing ironclad games announced early on, and for gamers like me that was great news. However, I'm starting to wonder how many of these titles will actually deliver high quality action thanks to the subpar releases seen so far.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader – Second Opinion

Caleb's Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II review brings up several valid points in regards to the titles beautiful graphics, lack of story and unoriginal missions. While I agree with his assessment for the most part, I feel a few points weren't stressed enough or overlooked.
