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...


Dissidia Final Fantasy Review

Ever wanted to see all the good guys of Final Fantasy team up together in one title to battle it out with the bad? Well, now you can in Dissidia Final Fantasy. The story begins when the Goddess of Harmony, Cosmos is once again at battle with the God of Dischord, Chaos. However, the balance is now tipping towards Chaos as he builds a great army...


Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles Review

Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles is an arcade shooter composed of a number of filler stories for Resident Evil Zero, One and Three. In the first scenario, we see Billy Coen an escaped prisoner and Rebecca Chambers of the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team working together, fighting through a train full of zombies unaware of what's going on. As...


Valkyrie Profile - Covenant of the Plume Review

Taking place in the kingdom of Artolia, Valkyrie Covenant of the Plume begins when Wylfred and his friend Ancel are fighting as mercenaries, fending the fort from the undead. It is then that Wylfred is badly wounded and learns of the power the memento plume he possesses can grant. Blaming the Gods for the misfortunes that befell his...


Trauma Centre New Blood Review

Yup, finally got my hands on Trauma Centre New Blood! Didn't pick it up for the RRP and ordered it off Play.com instead. Surprised Gameplay still don't stock it but, I'm presuming the demand is low and considering there's a credit crunch going on, probably best not to stock games that might make a loss. Anyway, moving on... Set ten years...


Wario Land The Shake Dimension Review

Been a while since I played any game on the Wii and since there was still a while before Trauma Center New Blood is out, I decided to pick up Wario Land: The Shake Dimension. I liked the first Game Boy game so I thought this should be interesting too. Right away, the WLTSD greets with a Anime introduction scene by Production IG (Ghost in the...
