Steambot Chronicles – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol Reference, Crude Humor, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes

Steambot Chronicles

Game Description: Steambot Chronicles is unique open-ended gameplay and a more polished role-playing experience. Vanilla Beans wakes up to find himself lying on a sun-drenched beach. How did he get there—and who in the world is the girl standing above him? The girl introduces herself as Connie, and Vanilla begins the first busy day of a grand adventure. He'll take Connie home, meet the other members of her band (the Garland Globetrotters), and explore the town of Nefroburg. When a gang of bandits begins overrunning the town, you have a chance to be a hero—or not. What happens after today is completely up to you. Fight a multitude of enemies and gigantic boss mechs against overwhelming odds.

Electroplankton – Second Opinion

From the perspective of someone paying money for this card, I think I would be more than a little disappointed. There are no goals in the traditional sense; no real progression. The average person buys a piece of interactive software and expects certain things, among them the kinds of structure and experience that are usually conveyed by the art on the cover of the box.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Second Opinion

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney isn't a game. It's a book. When you think about it for a second, it makes sense. A fictional mystery book has, by definition, a protagonist investigating a crime committed by one of several prime suspects.

Killer7 Second Opinion

The cel-shaded look and trance-like audio form a strikingly edgy and elegant whole. Jason's description perfectly captures the bold minimalism that permeates the game, from the chapter start screens that require the player to guide a laser sight over a black silhouette of the level's antagonist and blast it into a spatter of red dots, to the "game over" screens that consist of stark renderings of the characters' agonized faces that would look right at home in a contemporary art gallery.

Talkman – Review

Sony will have a hard time convincing people that this foreign language aid will be as essential a travel companion to them as their iPod, their Nintendogs or, presumably, their foreign dictionary.

Talkman – Consumer Guide

Talkman

Game Description: Thanks to TalkMan—and a large blue multilingual bird called Max PSP (PlayStationPortable) is on a mission to break the ice and tear down those barriers that keep nationalities apart.

LocoRoco – Review

Read review of LocoRocoEvery time I hit the Power switch, I'm reminded of why it is that Sony's cult platformer has won so many hearts. Quite simply, no game is as unfailingly happy to see me as LocoRoco, and I really can't help but beam a smile straight back at it.
