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 – Consumer Guide

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

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 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

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.

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.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter – Consumer Guide

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

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter – Review

Ultimately, though, Breath Of Fire: Dragon Quarter is a slightly better than average game that coasts along on the fact that it tweaks the traditional RPG formula. The innovations in the title are a hit-and-miss affair that generally obfuscate the fact that the game is little more than a traditional dungeon crawler with a few new wrinkles.

Mega Man: Battle Network – Second Opinion

So here is a game that centers on a race of human mimicking robots, known as reploids. They are identical to humans in every way, save for the inner circuitry, and have even managed to display signs of emotions. They also happen to be struggling for their self-preservation due to the fact that a human government has ordered, seeing them as a threat, to dispose of every last one of them, an action referred to here not as murder or execution but as "retirement"...

Skies of Arcadia Legends – Review

Skies Of Arcadia: Legends is a welcome twist to today's "gray" RPG genre. Ported from the original version for Sega's deceased Dreamcast system, Skies is a unique story told in a world formulated by numerous islands in the vast skies of Arcadia. Players travel this world in massive airships and navigate the "seas" in search of new lands, adventure, and of course, treasure.
