Gitaroo Man – Review

It's only March, and it's already been a great season for diverse gamers. For proof, we need look no further than the niche genre of music gaming. For a category of entertainment that had formerly been labeled too Japanese for western tastes, music games seem to be here to stay. It's funny to look back and see that such a thing was almost unthinkable even as recently as five years ago.

Maximo: Ghosts To Glory – Second Opinion

After seventeen years of playing videogames, I somehow got it into my head that I was getting better at them. It turns out the games were just getting easier and Capcom's latest PlayStation2 title, Maximo: Ghosts To Glory, helped me realize that. I didn't expect much out of the ordinary when starting the game.

Saiyuki: Journey West – Second Opinion

Since Im not going to attempt to tackle the meta-issues or any cultural relevance here, Ill focus on the nuts and bolts of the game itself, irrespective of its historical background.

FIFA Soccer 2002 – Review

When it comes to sports games, Electronic Arts is the proverbial 800-lb. gorilla. If you can think of a sport, it's likely that EA Sports has come out with some high-profile game for it. In some cases, this results in game franchises that dominate their market. One of these franchises is the FIFA series. If you live in the U.S. and you like to play soccer games, it's more than likely that you've spent some time with a FIFA title. Always very popular, FIFA games have also been pretty much decried by any true fan of the sport. Offering unrealistic and unsatisfying gameplay, previous FIFA titles have racked up huge sales while remaining a negative blot on the American soccer consciousness. Recently, it's become increasingly obvious that other franchises, including Konami's high-quality series of soccer games, have been steadily eroding FIFA's grip on the market. In response, EA has come out with FIFA 2002, a groundbreaking game for the FIFA series.

Saiyuki: Journey West – Review

Saiyuki is at it's a heart a turn-based strategy role-playing game (RPG) similar to games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Vandal Hearts. Whether or not this genre is appropriate given the source material is debatable, but it's an interesting route the developers choose to take nonetheless.
