Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne – Review

Highly regarded in Japan, the Megami Tensei series (sometimes referred to as MegaTen) is one of that country's most popular and long-running role-playing game (RPG) franchises. Despite spanning approximately seventeen years and over fifty titles, its religious imagery and moral questions are practically unknown on domestic shores with the exception of two overlooked PlayStation discs, Persona: Revelations and the amazing Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. Now, with the release of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, American players can sample a bit more of what they've been missing. It's delicious, but an acquired taste.

The Bard's Tale

Game Description: The Bard's Tale was the great-grandfather of modern-day Computer role-players. This updated version brings back the fun and adventure, as you play The Bard -- a hero who's only after coins and cleavage. Is a dragon attacking a village? He'll face it, for the right price. Has a princess been kidnapped? He'll save her, but only if she's hot. Comedy and fantasy action combine for a uniqe 3D role-playing experience!

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter

Game Description: Renowned for its innovative gameplay mechanics, this latest incarnation redefines the Breath of Fire role-playing game. The Breath of Fire series for the PlayStation 2 sports a whole new 3D-world look, an engrossing storyline, brand new stylized visuals and innovative gameplay features.

The Bard's Tale – Review

Playing like a videogame version of The Princess Bride (going so far as to enlist the voice talents of Cary Elwes), The Bard's Tale skewers RPG conventions with gleeful abandon at every turn. Rather than feature a character who's a good guy from the start, players tackle the role of The Bard.

Summoner: A Goddess Reborn

Game Description: One of the best-selling RPG's on GameCube, Summoner: A Goddess Reborn introduced RPG fans to an original and immersive fantasy universe. Queen Maia fights to save her people from the enemy and fulfill her destiny. Battle your enemies in real time with a party-driven combat system; craft deadly poisons, cast a meteor storm or devour your enemy's soul; transform into twelve powerful summons from the blood iuggernaut to the blade of sand; explore over 3D excite and imaginative 3D locales.

Summoner: A Goddess Reborn – Review

Being a game critic is a little like being a soldier. Armies keep their countries safe; we play problematic games so other people don't have to. Spending 45 hours with Summoner: A Goddess Reborn won't get me the Medal of Honor—Daniel Weissenberger deserves that award, hands down. Nevertheless, I hope that I can protect others from the game's badness. Don't get me wrong—Summoner: A Goddess Reborn has some good ideas. They're simply crushed by its technical flaws and boring, boxed-in gameworld.
