Role-Playing

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Second Opinion

Before the hate mail starts coming in for giving it an eight, let me say that Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic is a good videogame. It's doubly good on the Xbox, since it's the only substantial role-playing game for Microsoft's machine outside of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Metal Dungeon, and possibly Pirates Of The Caribbean, though it's safe to say that they all stray from what one usually expects of a console RPG. However, would I call it a great game? I guess that would depend on your love of the Star Wars license.

Wild Arms 3 – Second Opinion

Mike wasn't kidding when he says Wild Arms 3 follows standard role-playing game (RPG) conventions. Wild Arms 3 has the standard band of strangers, a strong, silent party member with a "mysterious past," lots of dungeons to explore and a predictable plot for the player to be lead through—and that's just to name a few. But it is Wild Arms 3's differences, subtle as they may be, that I think makes it a little more than an also-ran.

Golden Sun: The Lost Age – Review

The problem with most sequels is they're often poorly conceived—however, that's not the case with Golden Sun: The Lost Age. This follow up to 2001's Game Boy Advance (GBA) role-playing game (RPG) marks the second installment in a planned trilogy of games. As such, it picks up right where the first title left off, continuing a tale begun in that first story.

Everblue 2

Game Description: Explore the magic of deep-sea diving. Follow heroes Leo and Zucco as they explore the truth behind tales of the Caribbean’s Bermuda Triangle and Coral Reef in this expansive underwater role-playing adventure. Uncover the sea’s mysteries, as you freely explore sunken treasure ships, play with dolphins and other underwater sea life, wander the great Coral Sea and avoid shark attacks. It’s a fun-filled adventure for all ages!

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire – Review

Even with a predictable commercial stigma that 10-year olds can see coming a mile away, the game delights and triumphs as an irresistible pass-time. Nintendo hasn't forgotten how to engage a gamer and at its core, Sapphire/Ruby, no matter how familiar it looks, sounds and still feels like a good game.

Everblue 2 – Review

A few minor exceptions aside, most role-playing games have been wedded to the fantasy genre. This is no doubt due in a large part to the format's origins in the pen and paper world of Dungeons & Dragons. Whether you're smashing orcs over the head in Neverwinter Nights or defeating some ugly monstrosity with a fire spell in any of the Final Fantasy games, the setting is the same (albeit with small alterations). Rest assured that if you're playing a role-playing game (RPG), you'll be lost in a world full of mages, fantastic beasts and people who have names like Wakka.

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire

Game Description: Pokémon Sapphire and Ruby take place in an all-new region known as Hoenn. When the game starts, you get to decide to control either a boy or girl Pokémon Trainer. Whichever you choose, the storyline will be the same—your goal is to set out in the world and become the world's greatest Pokémon Trainer.
