Shining Force Neo – Review

To be fair, once the initial disappointment dissipates, Shining Force Neo is a damn good game—it's just hard for an old guy like me to get past the whole Shining Force not being a strategy RPG thing. Why call it Shining Force? Why must Sega continually toy with my emotions? What's next? A Nights RPG? A Phantasy Star card battle game…oh, wait, they actually did that. My bad.

Shining Force Neo

Turn the tide of battle with a range of weapons and skills to defeat an overwhelming tide of foes. Grow from novice warrior to awe-inspiring Hero and eventually Mythical Legend.

Sonic Gems Collection – Review

Sonic Gems Collection basically dares its audience to ask one question: does merely being old qualify a game for 'classic' status, or did the game have to be good in the first place? Sonic Gems offers three previously unrereleased Sonic games, as well as eight other 'bonus' titles, bringing the grand total up to 11. This shotgun approach is actually the secret of the title's success, because while the three marquee titles are a bit of a letdown, a few of the lesser titles are interesting and fun enough to make the game worthy of a look.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Cartoon Violence

Spartan: Total Warrior – Review

Well to cut a long story short, none of what I wanted came true. In a number of interviews Creative Assembly stressed that Spartan had little in common with the other entries in the Total War franchise. And they are absolutely right. The game's setting is more of a fantasy remix than an actual depiction of ancient Greece.

Gunvalkyrie – Second Opinion

I remember playing Gunvalkyrie when it first came out in 2002, and my initial reaction at the time was that I hated it. I loved the idea of having a cool-looking character boosting around in a high-tech jetpack, but the controls seemed harebrained and I gained nothing from it but frustration. Admittedly, I didn't spend that much time with it because my initial distaste was so strong.

Headhunter: Redemption – Review

While Headhunter was a good game with several major flaws, Redemption is essentially the same game with those flaws removed, leaving, if not a great game, at least a very good one that stands head and shoulders over the original.
