Pokémon Stadium – Second Opinion

As I said before Stadium is not the finest example of a stand-alone game, but in all fairness, it was never to meant to be. It was to be used with Nintendo's very innovative Transfer Pak, and when linked with a Pokémon game, it offered new options and modes that enhanced the original games experience. With the exception of a true Pokémon sequel, I doubt fans really could ask for more.

Pokémon Stadium – Review

Sadly, what was so brilliantly executed on the Game Boy, was not as impressively treated here in the Nintendo 64 creation, Pokémon Stadium. Rather than trying to recreate that childhood past-time in another shape or form appropriate for the now-fledgling Nintendo 64 system, Stadium is nothing more then a companion piece for Pokémon trainers who already own the Game Boy version.

Pokémon Stadium – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence 

Taking Shots at X-Files "FPS"

With all the talk about virtual worlds and first-person shooters (FPS) I would have thought that the usually reputable X-Files crew would actually do some digging when it came to their videogame focused episode.

Soul Fighter – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Animated Violence

Soul Fighter – Review

The thing most noteworthy to me about Soul Fighter is that it serves as a reminder of how far the industry has gone. Years ago, no one would have cared if a game was released without a two-player mode because that was the norm then. But nowadays, if an action game doesn't have a two-player mode, a red flag goes up and the game will be judged harshly.

Vandal Hearts II: Heavenly Gate – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence

Vandal Hearts II: Heavenly Gate – Review

The current state of the industry still has game developers and publishers more concerned with testing gamers reflexes with action-oriented fare than they are with offering more cerebral experiences. Games like Final Fantasy VII helped change some of those perceptions by bringing the console RPG into the mainstream. Unfortunately, I cant say the same about Vandal Hearts II doing the same for more strategy-oriented games.

Vandal Hearts II: Heavenly Gate – Second Opinion

Vandal Hearts II is slapped with a mature rating and its not hard to see why after being exposed to a few minutes of the story. Vandal Hearts II's tale is focused on the lives of a group of characters and deals with all the harsh realities of war. All the commonly associated war horrors, in the form of executions, torture, rape, and pillaging, is all openly conveyed (though not vividly depicted) throughout the games story sequences (that take place in-between battles).
