Game Reviews

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. 7th Dragon tells of (as the name may suggest) dragons that have descended upon the world, growing poisonous plants...


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...


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...


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...


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...


DJ Max Portable Black Square Review

There's not much I can say about this latest title in the DJ Max Portable series because it is very much like Clazziquai Edition so this will be a very short review. Interestingly enough, upon starting Black Square it asks if you've played Clazziquai Edition before and if you answer yes, the difficulty is set to normal but if you answer...


Tales of Hearts Review

Tales of Hearts, as you may have guessed from the title, focuses on hearts. It centres around a world of Spiria, a crystal produced from the power of will power and the mind and, one exists within every person. However, some Spiria is going wild and an unknown disease is spreading. One day, Kohaku's Spiria is shattered and its pieces are...


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...


Bully Scholarship Edition Review

It's been years since I played Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto on the PC but, I haven't played any of the recent games because I got bored after Vice City but, I decided to pick up Bully Scholarship Edition because there's not many decent titles on the Wii at the moment. The game begins with a brilliant opening with some cheeky humour. James...
