Splinter Cell Conviction Review

Feels like it's been a long time since I last played a Splinter Cell game and that was Chaos Theory so I've probably missed out on some of the story since then. In this latest title Conviction, Sam Fisher is out to find out what happened to his daughter who he had expected dead. However, he is contacted by an old friend Grim and learn it's time...


Tokyo Monoharashi Karasunomori Gakuen Kitan Review

I'm sure Atlus are well known for their Persona and Trauma Centre games in the West by now but what about their other titles? In Tokyo Exorcists - Tales of Karasunomori Academy, you play as senior high student Kazuki Shichidai who just like a number of other students. experienced an odd phenomena at the library. They all answered an odd...


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...


Runaway - A Twist of Fate Review

After 4 years since the sequel's cliff hangar, we finally get to learn what happened to Brian Basco in this third instalment of the Runaway adventure game series, Runaway - A Twist of Fate.

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

"What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord" doesn't seem to be getting much attention in the West and I doubt its name change after finding it clashed with an old Batman TV show helps at all. In any case, Japan gets their third title in the series otherwise known as Those Cheeky Heroes 3D (Yuusha no Kuse ni Konamaiki da 3D). A message arrives on...


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.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Review

No More Heroes 2 takes place in Santa Destroy 3 years after the prequel. The city has developed a lot since then with high rise buildings everywhere but there's also plenty of killings and Travis Touchdown has dropped to 51st place in the rankings. A brother of one of the assassins that he killed meets him on the rooftops for revenge which...


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...
