Role-Playing

Evolution: World of Sacred Device – Second Opinion

I agree with Dale that the impressive graphics, relaxed nature, and often-humorous settings of Evolution is what sets it apart from the dozens of other RPGs on the market. At the same time, the goofy antics of the anime-style characters and settings isnt what impressed me most about the game.

Evolution: World of Sacred Device – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco & Alcohol

Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator

Game Description: You are Maya, a junk scavenger, surviving on refuse dumped from above. Yours is a world of layers, in which continents orbit at different elevations around the planet. Those at the top, the Chosen, consume massive amounts of energy and dump their waste down to the layers below. Now, they have begun a descent to the Core, a living computer, in search of the Gift of the Creator, fabled to bestow great power. At first you stand in the way of the Chosen, fighting to slow their march to the Core and protect your homeland. But it is you who will ultimately discover Septerra's true nature, as you journey out of the familiar surroundings of your home country, and come face to face with the Legacy.

Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator – Second Opinion

Anyone who has followed the torrid development history of Septerra Core knows that this is labor of love for its creators at Valkyrie Studios. What started as an epic role-playing game (RPG) aspiring to the grandeur of Final Fantasy VII, almost became vaporware when its initial publisher, Viacom New Media, went under.

Evolution: World of Sacred Device

Game Description: Evolution is a classic RPG that acts in true RPG style: an engrossing adventure with a story that unfolds as you progress through the game. You play Mag Launcher, the youngest in a family of adventurers, who has a taste for danger and the courage to back it up. Mag and his group of ragtag explorers are in search of an ancient artifact known as Evolutia, and the search will take your party to dungeons, forests, and caves that house some of the deadliest creatures in the land. See if you can lead your party to Evolutia and continue the Launcher family tradition with Evolution.

Thousand Arms – Second Opinion

About the only thing I can see that will add to Chi's review is to further reiterate how meaningful this release is for the anime fan. It's is like an anime movie with RPG elements. All the standard elements are there from the submissive women to the stoic (and often cold) men who always seem to get the babes. The whole dating thing was a bit unsettling at first, but it was so simplistic that I got into it pretty easily and the results were more fun than not.

Thousand Arms

Game Description: After being forced to leave Kant, Meis Triumph makes his way to the capital city of Boyzby where he meets Sodina. Her brother, Jyabil, takes Triumph as an apprentice blacksmith. Unfortunately, the gang that forced Meis to leave his home is headed to Boyzby. Guide Meis as he tries to stop the rushing invaders using his blacksmithing abilities to improve the weapons and items that his comrades carry. Hopefully, that will be enough to help them save the world in Thousand Arms.

Thousand Arms – Review

Thousand Arms is a game that is so distinctively Japanese through every part of its fiber, that only a user base familiar and understanding of the cultural, Japanese nuances present in it will be able to comprehend and enjoy the game. Its localized release clearly signals that such a phenomenon has taken place in the United States.

Thousand Arms – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes

Grandia – Second Opinion

I must admit, early on in the game, I wasn't overly impressed with Grandia. I liked the overall production values with the exception of the terrible voice acting, but I had issues with other elements. I found manually rotating the camera-angles to be an awkward and disorienting experience for a console RPG.
