Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Falsebound Kingdom – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

SOCOM II: US Navy SEALs – Review

Calling SOCOM II a sequel is being generous. The game feels more like a well-conceived expansion pack than an out-and-out new title. Yes, the game features a beefed-up single player campaign, new online maps (along with the ones from the original game), improved graphics, and a much more stringent cheater-catching system, but when one gets right down to it, this is more like SOCOM 1.5 than II.

Gladius – Review

Gladius is an ambitious title that attempts to take the arena-inspired games beyond hack-and-slash or chariot racing—by crafting a title that's a strategy role-playing game (RPG). Interestingly enough, for the most part the approach works. While Gladius doesn't do anything to redefine the strategy RPG subgenre, it does do just enough things well to keep players interested for the duration.

Gladius

Game Description: In the fantasy world of the game, the darkness of the Great War has passed and the lands of Gladius are peaceful once more. Now combat takes place only in the gladiator arenas, where schools from around the world compete for the title of Imperial Champions. You will follow the grand saga of two young heroes, Ursula and Valens, as they recruit and train a team of warriors and compete in the gladiator games. Battle with deadly weapons and powerful magic as you learn vital combat tactics while you enhance and customize your own characters. Strategic possibilities are nearly endless, with 16 character classes and over 100 unique character types from which to choose.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Game Description: Prince Laharl has awakened from a long sleep and has discovered his father's death and now he thirsts for vengeance and aiding him in this is the ability to unleash over 100 mind-blowing spells, a New Formation Attack System which allow up to 4 of your characters to do quadruple the damage on one enemy, over 150 character classes and monsters for customizing your army.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness – Review

The beauty of Disgaea is that it's many different things to many different gamers. Disgaea allows the player to determine how much he wants to experience of the game. With 150 different separate character classes, the ability to take characters to level 9,999, and a never-ending set of randomly generated battlefields, Disgaea is a game that can last for hundreds of hours.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance – Review

Thanks in no small part to the success of Final Fantasy Tactics, American gamers have been treated to a mini-renaissance in this niche genre. Games like the Game Boy Advance (GBA) version of Tactics Ogre, Atlus' recently released Disgaea for the PlayStation 2 (PS2), and the much anticipated Fire Emblem for the GBA are dishing out loads of strategy RPG goodness to a market starving for more.

Never one to miss out on cashing in on a craze it helped inspire, Square (along with new partner Enix) has jumped into the mix as well by releasing Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for the GBA. So, does this title live up to the legend inspired by its predecessor? Generally speaking, yes.
