Whenever I play Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, I'm always reminded of something a character once said in a cartoon show I used to watch a few years back. "New packaging, same product. Losers." While Code Veronica X does not deserve the latter part of this statement, the first sentence found in it pretty much sums up my opinion of this game.

While the hardcore fans of mech games will enjoy this, the steep level of difficulty that this title presents might turn off casual gamers.
Another year, another Armored Core. While the series still ranks high on my list of favored games, its getting harder and harder for this line to sustain the impact it once had. Since the originals debut stateside in 1997, there have been a total of five games released including this one, Another Age.

Now free from the burden of hardware manufacturing and in need of cash, Sega has been on a tear announcing any viable piece of software it owns for release on every conceivable gaming platform. It's for this reason that some may decry the release of Chu Chu Rocket! on the Game Boy Advance as nothing but an opportunistic business move by a publisher/developer trying to make a quick buck. But an objective analysis reveals this move to be one of the most beneficial towards gamers that Sega has made in a long time.
Nintendo's eagerly anticipated Game Boy Advance launched without a hitch this past June in the U.S. There were plenty of units and quality games available on launch day and the $99 price point was not at all prohibitive to potential consumers.
In the last couple of years, Sega has released a lot of games that had too many flaws to become classics, but had enough fresh ideas to make them worth playing. Sure, Shenmue was boring, but at least it wasn't rehashed. Although Phantasy Star Online might have been repetitive and shallow, nothing of its kind had ever been released on a console before. With the release of Confidential Mission, sadly, Sega has broken this trend. This title is simply mediocre, about as fresh as mold and as replayable as a hand grenade.

I'd like to start off by saying that Bomberman Tournament's title is deceiving. Though it does have a multiplayer mode within, Hudson Soft's focus lies squarely on its completely irrelevant single-player story mode.
