Final Fantasy Origins – Review

The Final Fantasy series has developed as one of the most popular and stylized franchises in videogames. Beloved by millions, the Final Fantasy games have managed to develop an almost baroque formalism in terms of both mechanics and narrative. There have been many milestones in the history of the series, but none that have been so momentous and yet nearly forgotten as the first two entries.

Final Fantasy Origins

Game Description: Final Fantasy Origins, a special package of the original Final Fantasy (released in North America 1n 1990) and Final Fantasy II (never before released in North America) have been remade for the PlayStation game console and feature new cinematic movies, opening theme songs, event scenes including updates of the original event sequences, enhanced graphics, improved sound quality and new gameplay modes. Together, these two titles laid the foundation for the series and spawned many hit sequels that have now sold over 42 million units worldwide.

Skies of Arcadia Legends – Second Opinion

I'm not sure what role-playing games Keith has been playing exactly. He seems to suggest that this genre is filled with deeply profound, ponderous epics painted in varying swaths of gray, and that Skies Of Arcadia Legends is somehow a sharp turn from these murky morality tales.

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht – Review

If Xenosaga is any indication, then Japanese game developers aren't yet ready to end their tawdry love affair with the cinematic effects pioneered in games like Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil. Rather, they seem to love these effects more than ever.

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht

Game Description: Thousands of years into the future, humanity exists only in deep space, facing an uncertain destiny as it unlocks the secrets of the universe in search of the ultimate truth. Brutally opposed by the Gnosis—a mysterious and hostile alien life form—the Federation works to expand humankind's reach throughout the universe... even by force where necessary. Based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s controversial theory of mankind’s "will to power," Xenosaga delivers a captivating message through its seamless story and character development. The stimulating graphics and attention to detail make Xenosaga the one role-playing game all gamers must own.

Lunar Legend – Review

Calling Lunar Legend a port is at least somewhat misleading. This recent edition of the game features the same story (roughly), but also adds in a few new wrinkles in hopes of getting the hardcore fans of the series to shell out the cash for yet another version. In this regard, Ubi Soft is only partially successful—the new material seems more an afterthought than anything, and the changes that were made to make the game fit on a standard cartridge format are almost sure to displease the longtime fans of the game.

Lunar Legend – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Final Fantasy IX – Second Opinion

I've always thought I could enjoy any game so long as it was a feast of sight and sound, not frustratingly difficult, and filled with enough diverting gameplay to keep my mind off the responsibilties of day-to-day existence. I'm also a fan of the production values and atmosphere of console role-playing games (RPGs) in general and the Final Fantasy series especially. So when Final Fantasy IX was released, I was sure I was going to love it.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Partial Nudity, Violence
