Lost Magic – Review

My favorite videogames are the ones most people don't think to make. I'll spend money just for the chance to run a farm, to whack frogs into holes with golf clubs, to rain destruction upon my enemies using calligraphy. Heck—innovation-lust is the reason I bought a Nintendo DS in the first place. But after playing Lost Magic, I have to wonder: is innovation enough to make a game any good?

Makai Kingdom – Review

By now everyone's heard of the surprise Strategy Role-Playing Game (SRPG) smash Disgaea. Developers Nippon Ichi made a name for themselves overnight with Disgaea's mix of humor and excellently localized dialogue, immensely deep customization, and solid tactics play. It sent a jolt to players and reminded them that this thinning niche hadn't died quite yet. However, their subsequent releases have failed to keep the momentum going with the same meteoric impact.

Hammer & Sickle – Review

In what might be considered an alchemical achievement, Nival Interactive came out of nowhere in 2003 to release a game with a perfect engine. Silent Storm combined the two greatest games in the squad-level turn-based strategy (yes, it's a genre) genre, melding the realistic combat gameplay of Jagged Alliance 2 with the massively complex, completely destructible environments of UFO: Enemy Unknown.

Generation of Chaos – Review

I'm just not having much luck with review material lately. First I had to suffer through Drakengard 2 (which made me fall asleep—no joke), and now, a game lands in my lap which actually ties with Unlimited SaGa for the lowest score I've ever awarded a game in my entire career—Generation of Chaos on the Sony PSP.
