Game Reviews

Persona PSP Review

Gameplay Just before reading on, you should note that I haven't played the original game and therefore, any comparisons I make here are based on what I've read around the internet. Those who have only been exposed to the Megaten series through Persona 3 or 4 will probably take some time getting used to the first person perspective...


Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock Review

Decided to pick up Guitar Hero III for the Wii because the whole controller game package was going for half price at HMV and I haven't played the Wii for a long time. Well... Maybe besides the fortnightly Mario Kart competition but they don't last long. I never went for it because it was expensive and the songs just didn't seem like my kind...


Last Remnant PC Version

Now the PC version has a number of features the Xbox360 doesn't have besides the higher resolutions and mainly have to do with the extra processing power they may have. The minimum processor expected is a 2Ghz dual core and taking advantage of this is being able to run through the battle animations in "Turbo Mode" allowing you to finish...


7th Dragon Review

I heard many good things about this RPG because it has Rieko Kodama as the producer who works with the Phantasy Star series, Kazuya Niinou from Etrian Odyssey and the music composer of the first Ys game Yuuzou Koshiro. Upon starting the game, you create your character by choosing a class out of seven and giving him/her a name. You then...


Chrono Trigger DS Review

Decided to buy the Chrono Trigger DS after all. A classic RPG with a rare bonus pre-order soundtrack CD was just too good to pass up over here in the UK even if it does only offer two orchestral tracks. Have to say I like how the full colour manual uses Akira Toriyama's illustrations. They look much better in print than on the tiny DS...


Bomberman Blast WiiWare

This is my second WiiWare purchase and I have to say it wasn't a very good one. Thought Bomberman Blast WiiWare would have a story mode so I went ahead and bought it before I found out I got it mixed up with the retail shop version. 1000 points (£7) for a game that only features a small number of simple single goal oriented modes on very similar...


Mirror's Edge PC Version

Again, just like Assassins Creed, the hype got me interested in Mirror's Edge and also partly because the idea was new. It wasn't just about shooting everything that moved. Tried it out on the PS3 in an HMV store and died so many times because I wasn't familiar with the controls and didn't know what I was supposed to do. Had to laugh when I...


Devil Survivor Review

And here is the mysterious "MegaTen DS" game that Atlus had revealed as part of its DS line up four years ago, Devil Survivor. Another spin-off title from their MegaTen series but also unrelated to the Persona series. It is the middle of the summer holidays in August. Your cousin Naoya has invited you and your friends Yuzu and Atsurou...


Assassins Creed PC Version

There was plenty of hype when Assassins Creed was announced for the Xbox360 over two years ago and, it's great that I can now play the "Director's Cut" version on my PC which contains a few new mission types such as assassinating archers. Turning up the settings to full and running the game at my monitor's maximum resolution of 1440x990...


Command and Conquer Red Alert 3

Been a while since I played PC games but after the upgrade, I just had to try out a few and see what I've been missing. My old setup could run Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 but only with the minimal graphics. Cranking them up to "ultra" with my new Geforce 9800 GT doesn't seem to change much except the water looks nicer. I had no problems with...
