    The only real "drawback" I found with the game is the repetitiveness of the "random crimes". It won't take too long for you to have exhausted all renditions of the crimes. This wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the fact that you have to perform these duties to move from chapter to chapter. Luckily, the combat is fun enough to keep these from being overly tedious.

    While some elements of the game aren't perfect, the underlying adventure is more than worth the time.

    While the lack of extra modes or the theme of the game may turn some people off, most everyone else should enjoy the game.

    It doesn't seem like there is much to it but give it an hour to grow on you, its world will open up, and you just might be hooked.

    The graphics portion of the game is a pure gold mine of visuals. The game sports a lot of nicely rendered locations, finely detailed textures and some exquisite visual effects.

    The game is so story-driven that it becomes excessively linear. This is not to state that other action titles are so much more non-linear, but Eternal Darkness tends to have only one path through the whole game.

    Builds on the weaknesses of its predecessor, but at the same time falls short of its strengths. All in all, this is a great title that offers something entirely new to a series that didn't really need it.

    The strength of Shadow of Destiny lies in its well-scultped narrative which drives the game.

    At some parts of the game, you have great sound effects blasting through your speakers but at other parts, you have very sloppy sound effects. What I mean by this having sloppy sound effects is that you sometimes can’t hear what your character is saying.

    A throwback to the way RPGs used to be made before polygons. With anime-style characters and a firm story and gameplay, this game should be enjoyable for anyone who can get past the graphical weaknesses.

    A very good game, it's just hidden under a coat of blood and filth. The game engine is good, and the gameplay, graphics and audio are well done. If you can stomach the disturbing images and violence, you'll find a solid stealth/action game.

    If you can look past the shallow combat and limited interactivity, you'll find an enjoyable gothic experience the looks good and has a great story to tell.

    To make things worse, War of the Monsters has probably some of the cheapest enemy A.I. I've seen in some time.

    The action is quality and the story is told, even if in small portions and with very little in the way of depth.

    It's a shame that Ape Escape 2 is so easy and that there are so few new gadgets as the game is quite fun. With some more decent minigames (in place of the mundane Monkey Fables) and a little more challenge, I would recommend this to anyone.

    All the Simpsons characters and environments are lovingly and faithfully recreated, replete with references to specific events in episodes.

    It's hard to find a Dragon Ball Z game that's fun, fast, and enjoyable. DBZ nuts should savor this one. For every one else - it's a solid rental at best.

    If it weren't for both the slowdown issue, some minor glitches with the camera and the overall shortness and easiness of the game, this would be a must buy for most platforming fans.

    The score-based gameplay and actual event of singing in a group atmosphere more than outweighs the lackluster presentation.

    Most of the game is trial-and-error, leading you to play the same stage multiple times until you figure things out. Get seen by a shibito? Go ahead and die, because it's likely that running and hiding isn't worth the effort.

    Gone from FM4 is the ability to kill or eject pilots, meaning that you wont be swimming in excess Wanzer parts by a third of the way through the game.

    With a little more power for the engine and more refinement, this could have been a great game, but there is still a good time to be had here.

    Older or more hardcore gamers are probably going to scoff at the title, but there's something to be said about an adventure title that allows you to play with four people at one time.

    The combat is fun and there's a lot to do, so expect to invest a number of hours before you're done.

    If you like an average RPG tale with some fun combat and great Crafting, Blade Dancer is worth your time. The RPG genre isn't overly deep on the PSP and this title certainly fills a hole for JRPG fans.

    Most of the original game's elements have been realized in a pretty faithful replication.

    The game features a lot of loading, which is a little disappointing considering how linear and confined some areas are. Also, I would have liked to see more variety in the weapons and armor available.

    I really wish Sega-AM2 had utilized the Xbox controller a lot better. No matter how you change the controls in options menu, Ryo still controls stiffly.

    Look past the glitches and the mediocre puzzles and you can find a fun action/adventure for just about anyone.

    The single player experience is good for a short while, but the repetitiveness of it all may tire on some gamers.
