    Grandia III is nowhere near perfect and it's definitely not one of the better rpgs on the system. But the battles are so much fun that most won't really mind when the story falls to pieces. [JPN Import]

    For an RPG, I would expect better characters, something mildly interesting in the story and original landscapes, but here this is pretty much as average as you can get.

    Irregular Hunter X will satisfy your need for some side-scrolling shooting. The game is exactly the same as the original although with a few changes to keep things fresh. [JPN Import]

    I challenge you to keep a straight face while playing Monkey Boxing... Which is what SMB:BB is all about, delivering a load of insane fun to keep you and your friends happy for hours and hours.

    If you want a taste of the same old Virtua Tennis or have yet to experience the best Tennis game mechanics ever created, then youll be fine with VT3. Although if youre a veteran of the series this is a rental at best. [JPN Import]

    Do you like football games? If the answer is yes, then purchase it, if the answer is no, then dont.

    While a classic puzzle game like Tetris allows you to manipulate every block freely, Gunpey tries to limit you too much making the action feel rigid and slow and, the little variation it offers in the form of a few extra modes just doesn’t really make up for it. [JPN Import]

    The best playable disaster game you can get (though there isn’t much competition out there). Running through a city while trying to stay warm and alive presents some of the best thrills you can find in on the PS2. It’s not a perfect game by any means, and hopefully they’ll iron out the framerate issues by the time the series goes next-gen, but for those who liked the original or are just looking for a good disaster game, ZZ2 is it.

    The dishes and ingredients are all very detailed and look just like they should and Mama comes across as the tough extremist she is. She exudes her “Cook or die” mentality in every scene she graces. [JPN Import]

    One thing that I must warn people about is that this games difficulty level at starting is rather high, with the amount of damage the monsters can do.

    Fans of Pokemon who want a different adventure with all the monsters will surely enjoy this product, but so will people who like Dungeon RPGs. [JPN Import]

    Overall Bullet Witch is a bit short at 5-10 hours your first time through but its definitely worth a rental if it comes to your neck of the woods. [JPN Import]

    The game takes 5 hours at most to complete, and it has very little replay value, unless you didn't get the best ending the first time around and you want to see it.

    So while the first game was a fun mindless DS launch title the sequel turns out to be more of the same with a bit more polish. This is the type of game where if you love it you love it and if you hate it you hate it. [JPN Import]

    Raiden III is a good shmup. Its solid looking, has good bullet patterns/enemies, and the levels are set at just the right level in terms of fun and difficulty (there are also multiple difficulty options available from the start).

    Offers gamers plenty of hours of gameplay. From the realtively short Campaign mode to the vastness that is the Sub-quest section. If you felt you were disappointed with "Dynasty Warriors" then you can get your fix here. [JPN Import]

    Mediocre at best gameplay coupled with graphical bliss and a lengthy story guarantee huge sales, but you’d be much better off waiting a month and getting FF XII as this is no RPG and it’s no picnic. [JPN Import]

    New 25 man limit dungeons in the end game open up things to most everyone but require a ridiculously expensive flying mount to get to them so there will still be some silly gold grinding when you get to 70.

    When heading online you’ll find some much needed variety that wasn’t present in the single player game.

    This game has a lot of things to keep you coming back. You can play the single player or Ko-Op mode again with a new set of characters (we will keep them secret for now) and the unlockable arcade version of MKII is a nice addition for the fans.

    The difficulty is low due to the puzzles being about as tough as a play through the board game clue and the replayability is nonexistent. It's a great unique rental for sure but not one I would rush out to buy.

    PoPoLoCrois tries not to overwhelm the player with story and focuses a lot on the fun, rich gameplay that the player comes to expect from a portable title.

    [EM]-eNCHANT aRM- has a predictable, yet entertaining, plot featuring a small cast of likeable characters, a moderate sized world that will take about 40 hours to explore, and a good battle system. Sure the graphics are a mixed bag, music is strangely absent, and the encounter rate is high, yet it's still a nice start for next-gen rpgs. [JPN Import]

    Take one part classic Call of Duty scripted FPS action, add in two parts improved level design, another one part updated graphics, and just about four parts upgraded multiplayer and you’ve got the ultimate Call of Duty stew.

    It's a lot of fun while it lasts, and if you have the skills required to get the coveted 'no stopping' bonus then there's plenty of mileage to be had out of beating your own high scores and comparing your progress to your friends over Wi-Fi.

    All this Action and RPG goodness doesn’t take place in a cell shaded world though as developer Cavia decided that realistic graphics were appropriate this time around. Fans of the series might be put off by this at first but after a while it’s easy to get used to. [JPN Import]

    Then - oh, as if Kororinpa hadn't lied to us about how much it has to offer - getting to the first 45 levels unlocks another 45 levels, but they're just the same levels reversed. Not played from back to front, just mirrored. It was about at this point that our heart broke, and we couldn't do anything but weep softly. [JPN Import]

    For me, I think the new age mode brings some nice things to the table, but might not be enough to warrant a purchase.

    There’s a ridiculous amount of replayability and for those looking for a good deal in the length department you won’t be disappointed. Honestly it does grow on you and can turn out to be a great purchase or rental if look past all its many shortcomings.
