    A great single-player experience. I can understand why this game was so popular two years ago, but without a graphical update and multiplayer modes, it just falls a little short in competition with games like Halo and the new breed of FPS coming out on the consoles.

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

    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.

    Don't be fooled by the Disney-esque look of the game - underneath is a brutally violent action game with a lot of depth in the combat system.

    A great game with just a few beefs: poor use of great licensed music, slightly lacking implementation of the Gamebreaker feature, pointless hype about all the style moves (they're best used for taunting and bragging rights), and an insane difficulty curve in the Challenge mode which may send you to the store to buy new controllers.

    While there isn't much story in this game (which seems like going back to the FF:1 days) the game is incredibly addicting.

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

    I would not recommend this to anyone new to the genre. Play "GT3: A-Spec" instead - it costs the same amount and is a much, much better experience.

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

    If Otogi's tale was the bread it's gameplay is the butter. It mixes the best best of both the action and rpg genre... Much like "Ico" and "Panzer Dragoon Orta" it will go down as one of the most memorable experiences of this generation.

    The game is short. Even after completing the entire side quest and upgrading my creatures to the max, my time only left me with about 15 hours.

    Gun
    Graphically, Gun is one of those games that looks great for the most part, but does have a few rough edges that keep it from being in the same class as, say, "Resident Evil 4" or "Ninja Gaiden."

    There are some things to unlock, but the game itself is fairly short.

    Easy to pick up and get into, and the controls are sharp and responsive. While the main game will take most around 8 to 10 hours to beat, there are more than enough secrets to find to make it worth your effort to go back for more.

    While the game is quicker-paced and more interactive than most in the genre, it is ultimately a fine representative of a genre that's heavy on lengthy battles and a lot of invested time.

    For fans of the old arcade games, this proves to be a nice handheld diversion, especially if you no longer have an arcade nearby.

    In spite of the simple story line, the awful voice-acting, and the unpolished graphic engine, I still urge Anime fans to check this game out.

    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.

    If you have ever been a fan of the Twisted Metal series, then getting this game is a no-brainer. It's easily one of the best in the series and gives fans pretty much everything they've wanted out of the series.

    The best stealth game and ninja game on the market today. This is my choice for 2003's Game Of The Year. [Grade = A+]

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

    Adding lots of enemies and huge bosses only makes the game more frustrating. Expect veins to pop out of your cranium, and a few broken controllers. Although I did have a tough time getting through the missions, I did have fun.

    Traditionalists may find the new game too different for their liking, but gamers looking for a challenge with a great battle system should look into this title.

    The weak link of the game is the single player mode.

    Suffers from the fact that once the story really gets going, the game ends, leading into the upcoming sequel. This is a shame as the slow build up starts to really feel rewarding and then... BAM! Too be continued.

    I found the character design and model of the lead character to be severly clich├ęd and the least interesting in the game.

    It's the Simpsons theme that gives it so much spunk and even though you can't kill people the game is still a blast to play.

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

    Casual gamers will get into this game for about an hour before being overwhelmed by the choices. Experts of the previous games will love it, even with the odd control scheme.

    If there's anything that can be held against Republic Commando, it's that the main story is short and doesn't have all that strong of an overarching story. Fortunately, the gameplay and audio package makes the overall experience worth the time and effort. Republic Commando is certainly one of the better Star Wars games to come out this generation.
