Stella Deus – Review

Boasting a script from Ryo Mizuno (who penned the anime classic Record of Lodoss War), character designs from Shigeki Soejima (the mastermind behind the creepy demons of the Shin Megami games), a score from Hitoshi Sakimoto (of Final Fantasy fame) and a development team who worked on the ambitious (albeit tragically flawed) Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth one wouldn't be remiss in imagining Stella Deus standing as an SRPG for the ages. The end result, however, isn't even the best SRPG on the PlayStation 2 (Disgaea retains its crown in that category).

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones – Review

Is the Game Boy Advance dead? It may be easy to think so with all the post-E3 talk of next-generation systems, let alone the current struggle between Nintendo's new kid on the block, the DS, and Sony's eye-candy PSP. However, there are still a few GBA nuggets worth looking at trickling onto retail shelves. The second of Nintendo's long-running strategy series to be released stateside, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, is one of them.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Game Description: In Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, you'll battle to defend an empire against internal dangers and external threats. On another world, humanity struck a bargain with demons and ensured generations of peace. Now, suddenly and for no reason, the Grado Empire has invaded neighboring Renais. Twin heirs to the throne of Renais, Eirika and Ephraim, fight to free their kingdom and uncover the secret behind their former ally's treachery.

Metal Gear Acid – Second Opinion

I liked Metal Gear Ac!d about as much as Brad, but for different reasons. While Brad felt it stumbled out of the gate but gained steam later, I felt like it started out strong and became overwhelming as it got more complex.

Yu Gi Oh!: 7 Trials to Glory – Review

The artistry on display here is merely one of commercial function rather than aesthetic form, akin to that of, say, a successful McDonald's advertising campaign. Sadly, just like the big M's marketing execs, it'll probably do exactly what it sets out to do: sustain the brand and make plenty of money in the process.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 7 Trials to Glory

Game Description: Yu-Gi-Oh!: 7 Trials Of Glory World Championship takes you to all-new arenas for challenging tournaments in Battle City. Create and edit new decks and choose from multiple playing styles as you prove yourself to be the Duel Master. 200 all-new cards makes this the most extensive Game Boy Advance Yu-Gi-Oh! game ever.

Metal Gear Acid – Review

Clearly, the goal with Metal Gear Ac!d was to score once more by launching the new PSP hardware with a proven superstar. However, this time Snake's mission is quite a bit different than his past forays, and the results are mixed.
