    The control scheme works surprisingly well, with a fully rotatable camera and a map that allows you to view the entire battlefield and quickly warp to a specific location.

    The game features some really good concepts, but much of these could be easily overlooked because of the load times and slow-down.

    An interesting hack-and-slash RPG for the PSP. However, the game suffers drastically due to some long and extremely annoying load times.

    Easily one of the biggest problems with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is the fact that the game is way too short. The game can easily be completed in less than six hours of playtime, and there really is no reason for a replay, either-- no unlockables or anything.

    The game continues to share many of the same flaws as the original, but the long quest and the improved translation certainly help.

    While the game definitely isn't perfect, much of the action can be somewhat entertaining. That is if you can get past the annoying camera angles and sloppy lock-on system.

    Most would probably give up on their creations after 40-some-hours in the making. With that said, RPG game masters and RPG aficionados in general probably will fall in love with the incredible amount of customization available.

    If you're a fan of old-school dungeon crawlers, you're definitely going to like Mazes of Fate. It's a decent game, and while not for everyone, it can provide hours of entertainment for the open-minded gamer.

    Speaking of game length, don't be surprised if you can beat this one in a few hours.

    The game offers a unique and fun battle system and plenty of replayability. Unfortunately, poor graphics and sound and dull characters and story hurt the game.

    The trouble is doing any sort of action requires using 3 or 4 menus, which is okay in itself, but in InuYasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask, each menu takes twice as long as it needs to, dragging the battles horridly. Combined with a fairly high encounter rate, it seems to take forever to accomplish anything.

    While the game can be fun, and is very unique, the difficulty in truly understanding the game will more than likely turn away most gamers.

    While the game isn’t much more than an average RPG, chances are hardcore Gundam fans will really enjoy it. If you don’t mind the dated graphics and somewhat cliché story, then MS Saga: A New Dawn can be a fun and interesting game.

    Even though it is a beautiful game, the actual gameplay is somewhat hampered by repetitive combat, a difficult camera, and lack of exploration.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    While the voice acting isn’t exactly awful, it is a bit disappointing. On the other hand, the score throughout the game is done very well and helps create an entire epic feeling, which fits well with the game.

    Just isn't fun enough to keep you playing. With repetitive missions, no multiplayer and mediocre gameplay, it often devolves into a chore.

    Might be a step up from The Darkest Faerie that was released for the PlayStation 2 last year, but it still carries many of the same flaws.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The straightforward gameplay makes it an easy game to pick up and play, and the fact that you can respawn with full health right where you die makes it easy to overlook the camera flaws, even if they do cause you to die repeatedly.

    While the violence and gore of the film seems to have carried over to the game, the repetitive and dull combat and lack of replay weighs heavily on the total enjoyment and really makes it hard to recommend to anyone but the most diehard 300 fans.

    When it comes down to it, X-Men: The Official Game is exactly what you'd expect out of a game based on a movie... extra story for fans, flashy graphics and good voice acting, but shallow gameplay and a short playthrough time.

    The game falls short in areas such as voice acting, graphics, story and actual fun!

    If you like games like Harvest Moon, or you enjoyed the fishing portion in the Dark Cloud series, then this is a fun little game just for you. While it’s far from perfect, it’s a delightful adventure that both casual and hard-core gamers can enjoy. Just don’t expect anything epic.

    If you’re a hardcore fan of the films, then you might be able to overlook some of these flaws, but if not, then you may want to just give this one a rental.

    The story is almost insulting until nearly the end, I didn’t like the characters, and combat was by and large pretty boring with all too many encounters.

    In the list of Diablo clones – which includes the likes of Dungeon Siege, Revenant, and Nox – it ends up near the bottom for the simple reason that it lacks soul.

    The not-so-obvious story, sound and graphics take away from this excellent game. The game is definitely an experience worth trying, but don’t expect a long ride!

    A great example of how less-than-smooth gameplay can plague even the most interesting plot. Better design could have made this a classic. It is a tribute to just how well the story is woven that I kept hammering away at it, even while cursing the flaws and giggling at the funny combat sequences.

    Samurai Western is an OK action game with a unique Western theme and some cool RPG depth. Unfortunately, the camera is horribly frustrating, the characters are lame, and the constant button mashing will probably make your hands hurt.

    Many of the game's elements are dated, while others are just annoying and problematic. If you’re looking for a children’s game or you’re a die-hard fan of the Neopets, then you might find some enjoyment within this game. Otherwise, steer clear!

    The story is cute and simple, like all the Lunar games, but is held back by a questionable localization.
