The Settlers 7: The Path to a Kingdom with DRM Review

The last Settlers game I played was Settlers 2 long ago. I remember playing the demo many times just like I did with the more recent, The Settlers 7: The Path to a Kingdom. I thought it was the full game because it lasted for so long! It seems the series have tried to go through many different routes since the second game. In the sixth, you...


Dragon Age Origins Awakening Expansion Review

Just 3 months after Bioware released their D&D Dragon Age Origins game, they release a brand new expansion pack and hints the true sequel will follow next year in 2011. Not a bad thing... As long as the game's quality remains more or less the same. In "The Awakening", you're now the Warden-Commander who is out to re-establish the Order of...


Zangeki no Reginleiv Review

In Nintendo's game published in a black box "Slash Reginleiv", Ragnarok breaks out and the war between the deities and their rivals the Giants begin. The humans in Midgard are caught up in the midst of this battle and are attacked by Giants. Many of the deities wish to help the humans but unfortunately they had to prepare their own...


What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? 3D Review

In case you're wondering, the "3D" doesn't stand for the late 3D glasses trend - It stands for 3 dungeons to beat instead. Slightly more areas to beat than before. The main mechanics hasn't changed much. You dig away underground to build up a good eco system, fertilising blocks and create monsters from them to help fend your dungeon from...


No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Review

The good news is you don't really have to fight through 50 different bosses. Just like the prequel, you're thrown into battle right away with hints about how to play. You can use the old Wiimote and nunchuk combination or the classic controller. The game plays fairly much the same - You're mashing the A button to attack most of the time...


Valkyria Chronicles 2 Review

The SRPG Valkyria Chronicles 2 takes place in early 20th century and the European War II is underway with Europe divided into the Atlantic Federation and East Europa Imperial Alliance. The Alliance invades keen to get a hold of the powerful "Ragnite" minerals from Gallia, a small neutral nation that stood between the two sides...


Perfect World International Review

Amongst the bigger paid MMORPG titles such as Blizzard's World of Warcraft and Square Enix's Final Fantasy XI, there's plenty of free titles out there. One of them is Perfect World (完美世界) from Chinese developers originally released back in 2005 in China before it hit the Western world in 2008. I thought I'd give it a try since it looked...


Dragon Age Origins Review

You start off the game by creating your character which means selecting a race, gender and a class. I remember how I kept dying in Baldurs Gate and ended up giving up on the game but now I know how to play, I enjoy the streamlined battle system where you can customise your party members skills and pause to issue out commands while...


Persona 3 Portable Review

Atlus has released a second remake of their popular RPG Persona 3. Dubbed Persona 3 Portable, the game is based on the first remake Persona 3 FES - The Journey, and brings over all the improvements Persona 4 had to the game system  but the biggest change is - Catering for the female fans by bringing in a new Heroine that you can choose to...


Borderlands Review

In the FPS/RPG hybrid Borderlands, you're on Planet Pandora where there is rumoured to be a "Vault" that holds all kinds of treasures and you just happen to be one of the hunters after it. Right after you arrive, it just so happens the mysterious "Guardian Angel" suddenly contacts and starts giving you instructions to follow to find the...
