Role-Playing

Car Battler Joe – Second Opinion

Over the last two years I have seen this game come up several times on the Internet categorized as a surprise hit or as the true definition of a sleeper. Since I'm always eager to investigate rumors that may lead me to my next obscure favorite, I decided to take all this enthusiasm to heart and buy a copy of Car Battler Joe to see what all the buzz was about. After playing through the entire game, I don't see it.

Shining Force Neo

Game Description: Shining Force Neo is a fast-paced action-RPG featuring a dramatic, character-driven story and a high gloss anime aesthetic. You become Max, a young traveller on his way to becoming a warrior or sorceror. Master martial arts, face the deadliest fighters around and prove yourself, in a wild, action-packed storyline.

Shining Force Neo – Review

To be fair, once the initial disappointment dissipates, Shining Force Neo is a damn good game—it's just hard for an old guy like me to get past the whole Shining Force not being a strategy RPG thing. Why call it Shining Force? Why must Sega continually toy with my emotions? What's next? A Nights RPG? A Phantasy Star card battle game…oh, wait, they actually did that. My bad.

Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir

Game Description: Full Metal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir is a prequel to Broken Angel. The game delivers the exciting storyline that made the anime a hit, with all-new transmutations and chimeras. We start in the desert city of Lior, where Edwin & Alphonse are investigating a cult called the Leto. When they encounter an inscrutable woman who gives them a ring, they're embroiled in a mystery involving vanished villagers and strange monsters.

Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir – Review

Fullmetal Alchemist 2 has proven to me that its parent anime is a good show. But I've yet to be convinced that Fullmetal Alchemist 2 is a good game.

Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut and Bose – Review

Xenosaga Episode II is chronologically the Jan Brady of its series: the bright, gangly and well-meaning middle child that must live up to its bigger sibling's legacy, which is rarely an easy task. Can this game hold its own when compared to its predecessor?

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines – Second Opinion

Upon its initial release Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines was such a rushed mess that it put its developer, Troika, out of business. Let me give you a little example to illustrate my point: Its physics engine allowed you to pick up various objects and throw them around. Among these objects were bottles. The problem is, the bottles wouldn't break when they hit the ground.
