Eternal Sonata, 20 Hours of Beautiful Environments and Evolving Gameplay

I was able to play Eternal Sonata because my brother recently bought himself an Xbox 360 and have packed away his PS2 (which means no P4 for me unfortunately). It was the beautiful graphics and interesting looking battle system that caught my attention on this one. Originally known as "Trusty Bell: Chopin' no Yume", the story is...


Coded Soul: Uketsugareshi Idea, 12 Hours of a Monolith and Pet Monsters

Here's an ARPG I just stumbled across and decided to play because it had a tint of MegaTen feeling to it when I saw its screenshots. "Coded Soul: The Successor of Ildea" developed by SCEI. The story begins when a mysterious monolith is found in the depths of the Bermuda oceans. After scientists found that it was composed of a material...


Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, 13 Hours of Wiimote Goodness

I didn't really have my eye on "Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure" because the story and adventure puzzles didn't seem all that appealing. Then the game reached the Western shores of NA and many good reviews, video clips started to crop up on the regular gaming sites I read so, I decided to give Capcom's first foray into the world...


Pangya Golf with Style, Fantasy Courses Hours of Fun

There's still around two months until anything else good gets released for the Wii and having finished Super Mario Galaxy, I decided to find another game to play. Pangya started off as a free and downloadable online Korean PC game from Ntreeve Soft but later, Tecmo decided to take the game and reproduce it adding in their own animations...


Suzumiya Haruhi no Yakusoku Review, First Official Game

I can't believe the number of people who have been searching for a place to download the first official Suzumiya Haruhi game, "The Promise of Haruhi Suzumiya"over the past few days and arriving here. Well, sorry to disappoint but there's no downloads here. Otherwise I could really get into trouble with Wordpress. Maybe you can check...


Those Cheeky Heroes, Demon King and God of Destruction Teams Up

Take a look at this screenshot. When you compare it to what other PSP games such as FFVII: Crisis Core has to offer, it kind of puts you off doesn't it? Well, don't let the visuals fool you because it's another very fun game where you play the bad guy. The full title is "Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaiki da!" which translates roughly to, "Those so...


Super Mario Galaxy in 8 Hours, Fun Enough for All Stars?

So it's been about a month since Super Mario Galaxy was launched over here and how I highlighted its secret and warning messages. I've finished the story now but haven't quite managed to push on for that second ending. There's plenty of reviews out there by now but here's my version. After their first half exciting outing on the Wii, the...


Endless Ocean Review, A Peaceful Swim with the Ocean Life of Manauria

One of the rare games that Europe gets first before NA. Otherwise known as "Forever Blue" in Japan, Endless Ocean allows you to explore the fictional ocean depths of Manaurai while learning about real sea creatures. I'm sure the beautiful blue boxart alone already catches attention. Starting the game, you're given a divers...


Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, I Really am Bored of Shooters

I know I said I probably wouldn't going get Metroid Prime 3: Corruption but, since Elebits didn't last very long, I decided to get it anyway while I waited for another good title on the Wii. For some reason, even though I had the latest 3.10E update, the game icon wouldn't load and I still had to perform an update off the DVD before the game...


Archaic Sealed Heat Review, 38 Hours of Hironobu Sakaguchi's Latest SRPG

When I first loaded up Hironobu Sakaguchi's latest game "Archaic Sealed Heat", I have to admit I was put off by the somewhat "bad" balance between the 2D sprites and 3D graphics. They just don't look quite as impressive as S-E's recent offerings on the DS. However, after giving it a few hours of play, I found there was much more to this...
