Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits – Review

Arc isn't the game that will put games on par with film and literature (which have both been around for significantly longer time periods), but it is a step in the right direction.

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits

Game Description: Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits is the first game in the series to be presented entirely in real-time 3D, and breaks significantly with the connected storyline of Arcs one through three. Set some thousands of years after that story concluded, it tells the story of two brothers, one demon, one human, whose lives intersect across a 60-hour quest. The classic RPG expands onto PlayStation 2 in an intriguing storyline filled with strategic combat and adventure.

Phantasy Star Collection – Review

Eschewing the more popular fantasy settings of Square's Final Fantasy games and Enix's Dragon Warrior series, Phantasy Star goes for a futuristic cyberpunk feel. This alone made it intriguing to a niche group of gamers who were already falling in love with the genre. Even more impressive was the fact that the first Phantasy Star actually featured a story with relatively well-drawn characters. The first Final Fantasy game featured a party of four non-descript archetypes, and Dragon Warrior wasn't a whole lot better. In this regard, Phantasy Star was relatively ahead of the curve for what was being done in these games. This would continue in the sequels, which would feature even larger stories, more characters, and in the case of the third title, an adventure that spanned generations.

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.
