  1. A great tower defence strategy game that'll certainly get the grey matter going. [Oct 2009, p.86]
  2. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord is, like the other two games with the name of the franchise from Square Enix RPG for WiiWare, one of the best deals of the virtual platform for original games for the Wii. With a perfect interface, excellent graphics and a attractive soundtrack, the game has worked tirelessly to bring, of the best possible form, to players its interesting and innovative proposal of strategy RPG that is its reason for being. The linearity of gameplay can be considered a problem to the game, because, with it, you lose the charm of the open world of My Life as a King. Still, My Life as a Darklord is extremely addictive, and can leave a taste of "want more" - that probably will be satisfied by Square Enix and its policy of launching countless DLCs.

    I love the game itself, but I refuse to pony up so much money for any game.

I am very offended by Square Enix (The Dark Lords themselves) deciding to use pay content "Expansion" options, things that would traditionally be unlocked within a game. Although I must admit, it ties into the concept of the game nicely. Full Review »

    Decent game but pretty frustrating to find out how little you get without buying tons of extras. The game is 1,000 points ($10) but there is Decent game but pretty frustrating to find out how little you get without buying tons of extras. The game is 1,000 points ($10) but there is 5700 points worth of extras ($57). These aren't cosmetics or fun add ons. They are real game play items that have a huge impact in the playability of the game. For 1,000 points you are getting a game that has been stripped down as far as they possible could while still keeping it playable. Expect no variety or advanced strategy to be there unless you pony up for a lot of the extras. Full Review »
