Panzer Dragoon Orta – Second Opinion

As an unabashed admirer of the Panzer Dragoon series, I find myself in almost complete agreement with Gene's assessment of Panzer Dragoon Orta. Being intimately familiar with the previous three games, I found it difficult to imagine how they could improve upon the structure of Panzer Dragoon Zwei, which I regard as one of the best shooters of all time.

Guilty Gear X2 – Review

Then there's Zappa from Guilty Gear X2 (GGX2), Sammy's sequel to the estranged Guilty Gear series. He may not be the main character of the game, but he remains a fighting game character nonetheless. And although his moves follow the basic principles that Ryu laid out more than a decade ago, everything else about him does not.

War of the Monsters – Second Opinion

Instead of featuring established Nintendo franchise characters, War Of The Monsters features established B-movie stereotypes, each with their own distinct fighting styles and personalities. The simple, two-attack-button control setup belies a deeper strategy, another feature that gave me a sense of Smash Bros. déjà vu.

1000 Game Heroes – Book Review

We don't do a lot of book reviews here at GameCritics.com. It seems like including more literature would be a natural fit for the site, but one explanation for our lack of coverage is that there aren't many books written about videogames in the first place.

Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball Second Opinion

If the game were truly about volleyball, or even about forming relationships, then there would not be random screens of the girls walking up and down beaches or lying down in poses that make them appear, as a friend so aptly put it, "freshly raped."

Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair – Review

Out of a virtually limitless number of videogames to choose from, only three have been inducted into the world-renowned Smithsonian museum. This elite gathering includes the unquestionably historic titles Pong, Pac-Man, and the inspiration behind the subject of this review, Dragon's Lair.

Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

The Document Of Metal Gear Solid 2

Metal Gear Solid 2 was not the "average" sequel. Those who jumped into Solid Snake's next installment were not simply re-introduced: though the game inherited a lot of characteristics from its forerunner in terms of gameplay (stealth action and polished cinematics among other elements), it also introduced a narrative that took the player outside of standard videogame convention.
