Suikoden II – Review

"Suikoden Means War," cried the U.S. print ads for Suikoden II, though the translation was far from accurate. "Suikoden" is actually an English-Japanese transliteration for "Shui Hu Zhuan," the title of a fourteenth-century Chinese novel familiar to some as Outlaws Of The Marsh. But the mistake should be forgiven. Suikoden II is good enough to stake a new claim on an old word. It conveys the turmoil of war with the ring of truth.

Suikoden II – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes

Suikoden II

Game Description: An epic tale of friendship and treachery that can only be described as breathtaking, Suikoden II will leave you crying for a follow-up by the time you're done with it. With the power of the runes and the help of your allies, it is your task to derail the evil plans of Prince Luca Blight. Stocked with a dynamic battle system and tons of mini-games, this is truly an RPG to be reckoned with. Suikoden II will lead you through a roller coaster of emotions and just may change the way you play games.

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand

Game Description: Playing Boktai requires sunlight. The solar sensor responds to the player's environment and reflects the amount of solar energy (sunlight) in the game at real time. When there is strong sunlight, solar energy charges up quickly. When weak, it charges up slowly. Sunlight is required mainly to charge energy to the solar gun which is the player's only weapon, and to fight the boss at the Pile Driver. And during moments other than these, the sensor will detect solar energy, causing the game content to change. In Boktai, with the real time clock inside the cartridge, game contents change over time from daytime to nighttime, just like actual time in our world. The Undead that are active during the night stay quiet in the dungeon during the day.

Silent Hill 3 – Review

Horror is a delicate thing. You can't just set your game in a spooky house, toss in a few monsters with lots of teeth, and expect players to be terrified. Horror—real horror—is more fragile than that. It breaks easily. It requires expert care to grow into something that can touch us on our most primal level.

Silent Hill 3

Game Description: As a teenage girl named Heather, players must explore and unravel the mysterious connection between the god-forsaken town, her past, and her inner fears. With enhanced graphics detail, a more complex storyline, and even more grotesque monsters than the previous games, Silent Hill 3 promises to be the best horror adventure ever.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition Stairway to the Destined Duel – Review

It wasn't too long ago that I had a conversation with someone about Pokémon. Interestingly enough, he said that while the Pokémon Game Boy titles were accompanied by a popular card game, virtually no one he knew actually played the cards. The cards were just something on the side—collectibles. To get in on the real Pokémon action you'd really have to get the Game Boy cartridges.
