Final Fantasy IX – Second Opinion

I've always thought I could enjoy any game so long as it was a feast of sight and sound, not frustratingly difficult, and filled with enough diverting gameplay to keep my mind off the responsibilties of day-to-day existence. I'm also a fan of the production values and atmosphere of console role-playing games (RPGs) in general and the Final Fantasy series especially. So when Final Fantasy IX was released, I was sure I was going to love it.

Critical Hit

It has occurred to the staff at GameCritics.com that it is not enough to develop new ways for analyzing videogames within the context of a review. Rather, it is equally important to talk about farther-reaching issues concerning videogames in other forums, especially in a time when they are still largely perceived as children's toys and scapegoated for many of society's ills.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Partial Nudity, Violence

Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis – Second Opinion

Let's get this out of the way: Tactics Ogre: Knight Of Lodis is an excellent game. Mike nailed most of the important points about this game. If I may, I would draw a parallel to another GBA game, Golden Sun. Like Golden Sun, Knight Of Lodis is a modern reinvention of 16-bit play mechanics.

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb – Review

Seeing Raiders Of The Lost Ark in a theater in 1981 was a seminal moment for me. I was 12 at the time, still two years away from kissing a girl, three years away from learning how to drive, and desperately trying to figure out How To Be A Man. My father, with his tendency to focus on my inadequacies, wasn't much help, but Indiana Jones—this swashbuckler, this cad, this charming rogue—was.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter – Review

Ultimately, though, Breath Of Fire: Dragon Quarter is a slightly better than average game that coasts along on the fact that it tweaks the traditional RPG formula. The innovations in the title are a hit-and-miss affair that generally obfuscate the fact that the game is little more than a traditional dungeon crawler with a few new wrinkles.

The Sims (PS2/Xbox/GameCube) – Review

For those whose should-know-better stubbornness can go round for round with that of the game's level designers, amazingly and in spite of its crudities and failings, Pursuit Force's pull factor never really wanes.
