Ring of Red – Review

Few things can be truly credited with changing our world, but the things that do are generally agreed upon in consensus across the world. Language is probably the biggest one. Others would certainly mention the wheel, medicine and electricity as extremely significant. However, I also believe that one thing which may not be mentioned quite as often as other notables would be war.

Ring of Red

Game Description: What-if scenarios are popular among strategy games. The intriguing historical alternative to Ring of Red is that the Japanese didn't surrender in 1945, and, after decades of fighting, mid-'60s Japan is split between nationalist, Soviet-, and American-backed forces. Now what if those forces had giant, gas-powered battle robots, armed with machine guns, rocket launchers, and field artillery pieces, supporting their infantries? Players will pilot the battle mechs through real-time battles that feature day and night cycles, thousands of attack squad combinations, and detailed controls.

Shadow of Destiny – Second Opinion

There's a very special time when a new console system comes out, the time when developers dont have a clear idea of what they can or can't do with the hardware—a time that frees them to try new things.

Shadow of Destiny

Game Description: Experience the unique adventures of Eike who is given the ability to travel through time, alter his fate, and prevent his own murder! Travel through changing time periods and use clues from the past to change the dire destiny that awaits. With stunning true-to-life graphics, full character voiceovers, multiple story paths, and a riveting tale of mystery, Shadow of Destiny defines the next generation of adventure games.

Shadow of Destiny – Review

Time travel is an idea that has fascinated people since we as a species were able to mentally grasp the concept of time itself. Im sure nearly everyone who has ever lived has wished they had their own personal time machine at one point or another, and uncountable science fiction novels have sparked the imagination of those who havent.

Great Games – Snatcher

Among the many NES classics we've all played and forgotten about, Blaster Master is one that still manages to amaze today. I remember marveling at the game's remarkable special effects when it came out 12 years ago, and even as I play it now, I'm astonished at how cool the shots and explosions look.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Second Opinion

I agree with Chi's statement that Metal Gear Solid is a technical achievement for Game Boy. Konami did an excellent job porting an elaborate 32-bit 3-D game down to an 8-bit portable system. With that said, I felt the game was far less compelling than Chi did. I would find myself putting the game down after a game session and later having to force myself to pick it up, only because I wanted to get my money's worth.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Review

Without a doubt, the first thing that drew my attention was that despite the game being presented in a tiny little screen with 2-D sprites, virtually nothing was lost in the gameplay department. The perspective of the game is now locked down to a three-quarters overhead view (more like the original NES game) without the benefit of any 3-D camera panning or close-ups.
