    The story payoff is there. Memoria is a good game for adventure gamers who are looking for that payoff and aren’t put off by the game’s occasional dry spells.

    Despite its length, occasional frustrating parts, less than stellar visual quality and odd gameplay anomalies, Warp is an enjoyable romp that will keep you playing until its conclusion. If you are looking for a new portal, this isn't it, but if you are looking for an interesting puzzler that doesn't overstay its welcome then you'll enjoy warp, even if 800msp is a little steep for how long it lasts

    While it may have some video issues Code Veronica is still a great time and worth looking into.

    Those without a Nintendo handheld system that want to know what the Fire Emblem noise is all about will find this to be a decent and competent, though not overly compelling, PlayStation analog.

    Zen Pinball’s South Park offering isn’t perfect but it will serve as a lovely addition to its already robust catalog of tables.

    Despite being a fun game, it's very bare, with few levels just relying on replaying for it to get any kind of lasting value. No matter how much you loved the game, though, replaying the same five is not enough for me to give this amazing, fun, beautiful game the high rank that it deserves.

    Fans of sci-fi action shooters and those seeking death defying thrills and spills need not apply, but parents of inquisitive youngsters are encouraged to check out what Starlite: Astronaut Rescue has to offer.

    The game is full of charm and little references that made me smile. From finishing a level and the leader saying “Controlling makes me feel good” a reference to the Ghostbuster’s song of the 80s. To potential employee names like “Mr. B” and “Bill Venkman,” It’s a game brimming with good fun. Pardon the pun.

    It’s the kind of the game that you can sit back and enjoy with an open mind, and be immersed in a world that seems so alien to western society.

    Life is Feudal - like many of its peers in the genre - is not enough fun or rewarding in the short term, and the long game is only for true devotees.

    It’s a competent but unambitious physics platformer – nothing more, and nothing less.

    To me Armageddon still is an enjoyable game, but is still one that does require a lot of patience to get into the controls and the game itself.

    Painballing gets its own video game, with smooth gameplay and decent visuals that will appeal only to fans of the sport.

    NASCAR Kart Racing is still a very well polished and nicely developed Kart Racer that may not be the best the Wii has seen but is enjoyable nonetheless.

    Ubisoft provides a glimpse of things may come for the flight sim genre, but sadly misses the mark with this unpolished title that just needed more time in the studio.

    Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims is a simple game that’s easy to pick up and play, though I don’t recommend playing it in long stretches (which I did), lest you grow bored with it entirely.

    In the end though, I put more time into each of the Age of Wonders III expansion packs than I put into Sorcerer King, because they were just better games.

    Developers Krome plays it safe with this solid Aussie-themed platformer, offering all the right ingredients, but not daring to explore new ideas.

    MotoGP 07 is not a vast improvement over last year's game, but it is a good solid experience nonetheless.

    The hockey season's here again, and the "old" console can still offer something for the fans, albeit with just an updated roster and slightly tweaked controls.

    Capcom has put out a partially broken full retial game. I had fun with it despite its flaws, but $60 is too much to ask for what this game is.

    Overall, it’s the same game as before but on a handheld, which worked very well for the gameplay.

    If a little more effort and refinement had gone into the game’s level design, those feelings would have been stronger.

    Rockstar continues to milk the GTA franchise with this PS2 port off the handheld original. Decent choice for those who want to complete their GTA gaming library.

    The multiplayer portion of the game is where the game does its best.

    Brawl is far from perfect, with an online multiplayer that appears to be devoid of other players and a single player campaign that halts your progress with an insane difficulty spike. Despite these shortcomings it is a solid party game if you have a friend or three that wants to play, and considering how rare it is in this day and age to find a game that supports this kind of multiplayer, I am impressed.

    There isn’t much in terms of actual content, and the developer promises to patch this in at a later date, but I can’t help but feel the game could have done with a few more months in Early Access.

    Overall, I’d recommend The Flame in the Flood for those looking for a new type of survival game, and those patient enough to deal with the interface.

    Only hardcore Final Fantasy aficionados need apply as the game won't sustain interest for those with a casual like for the franchise.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is not a perfect outing but dang is it a big improvement over last year’s outing and if your looking at this as a potential option I would say rent it first and make sure the style fits your needs as the game has plenty of content to take you outside of a rental period.
