Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – Second Opinion

With the glut of incomprehensible storylines, system-crashing bugs, and—most offensive of all—misspellings and bad grammar found in games these days, it seems as if in the mad rush to fill store shelves, a growing percentage of publishers and developers are getting increasingly lackadaisical.

Final Fantasy Origins – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence

Final Fantasy Origins – Review

The Final Fantasy series has developed as one of the most popular and stylized franchises in videogames. Beloved by millions, the Final Fantasy games have managed to develop an almost baroque formalism in terms of both mechanics and narrative. There have been many milestones in the history of the series, but none that have been so momentous and yet nearly forgotten as the first two entries.

Import Horizons - May 2003

Welcome to Import Horizons at GameCritics.com. Savvy gamers are aware of the gaming scene in Japan, but language, access and playability have been the bane of those looking for diverse titles from the East.

Puyo Pop – Second Opinion

I first fell in love with Puyo Pop when it was known as Kirby's Avalanche way back on the SNES, and it's been a favorite ever since. (This game has been around for years and years under one title or another, though it's more well-known in Japan.) One reason behind my affection for the little colored blobs is that I see Puyo Pop as a flawless example of the correct way to design puzzlers.

Post Mortem – Review

The reason I'm mentioning all this is to point out that Microids' Post Mortem strikes me as being somewhat similar to Frankenstein and much like the monster, despite a noteworthy effort, fails to be seen as a good game.

Ikaruga – Review

Ikaruga's patterns of alternating colors and the constant flipping of the ship are not unlike Tetris at its most complex levels (at least in terms of being forced to concentrate fully, react as quickly as possible with complete precision, and plan a few moves ahead). This really brings an extra dimension to the game in terms of mechanics as the title asks gamers to not only shoot and dodge, but also focus on finding the best path through each stage.

Amplitude – Review

The more I play Amplitude, the less inclined I am to simply call it a music game without adding a hefty disclaimer. Both Amplitude and its predecessor, Frequency, take the player to another more intimate level of the music creation process.

Amplitude – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Lyrics
