Full Spectrum Warrior – Review

Full Spectrum Warrior wants to start an entirely new genre (one that I really plan to support wholeheartedly) that attempts to capture the dullness of reality. Okay, that seemed a whole lot harsher than I actually meant it to be. In fact, I've been one of the biggest proponents of making videogames, especially ones set in the "real world," more realistic (whatever that means), but FSW really brings that notion to a whole new level in simulating the military experience as long periods of stultifying boredom punctuated by sudden, horrible violence.

Realistic animations for squad members—motions for soldiers were modeled after combat veterans Xbox Live support for teaming up and facing terrorists and guerillas in realistic, amazing urban combat.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness – Second Opinion

Disgaea is great and has a lot going, but I love and hate it at the same time. The humorous story and crazy characters really appealed to me, and gave me a strong incentive to see the next cutscene. There are dozens of (literally) laugh out loud moments, and the words "horse wiener" will forever be burned into my memory.

Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life – Review

In Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, there are no princesses to save. There are no worlds to conquer, no aliens to thwart. There's only a dilapidated farm that a young man and his partner Takakura must turn into a thriving business. Players raise livestock, grow crops and remodel buildings. But those who think that virtual farming is about as much fun as watching corn grow should think again.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol Reference, Fantasy Violence, Mild Langage

Future Tactics: The Uprising – Review

Ah, Future Tactics … currently a red-headed stepchild of the videogame review world. Saddled with poor cover art and positioned as a budget release, nearly every write-up I've read takes delight in putting it down, many of them aggressively. Not being independently wealthy, I held off on a purchase myself until I saw a demo running.

Future Tactics: The Uprising

Game Description: The future looks grim for humans unless you've got what it takes to save the world. In Future Tactics: The Uprising you can lead your team of rag-tag human survivors against the multi-dimensional creature overlords who have taken over Earth. Game focuses on action, not stats, and the terrain is reformed as you attack blasting holes in walls, making craters out of meadows and sending boulders flying like toys. Customizable 2-player battle mode lets you modify handicaps, power-ups and victory conditions. Or play 19-level story mode and earn points to upgrade to more powerful weapons.
