    A spectacular experience, not an intellectual one. Do not search for subtleties here or in-depth plots here – this is not a game that will win awards for its storyline or richness of character.

    The result may be a shiny bauble of a new game, but under that thin veneer and Molyneuxite fan worship beats the heart of a truncated action title. Short on gameplay, long on flash. Short on true RPG depth and long on empty hype.

    All said, the nasty, evil puzzles gave me a terrible impression while struggling through the games mid-section, but the last chapter and the game's humor saved it from a dismal grade.

    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.

    A fun game that takes a while to fully complete, one filled with conspiracies in the world of vampires, tales of Gehenna, the vampire apocalypse, mysterious plots, and more. On the other, we've got serious problems that incredibly interrupt the gameplay, long and frequent loading times, and mechanical errors that make me want to cry.

    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!

    Despite the flaws, Persona offers a lengthy quest with a fun battle system, and an interesting system for character customization.
    • 75 Metascore

    One of the biggest flaws with the game is the character voice-acting. For the most part, the characters seem to lack enthusiasm and come off sounding horrible.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Due to some minor flaws here and there, and the fact that game is too short, it's difficult to recommend it for anything other than a rental.

    Hitman: Codename 47 does deliver a fair deal of excitement and suspense. The mysterious assassin, the stress on stealth, and a decent narrative make it well worth playing.

    While the game does a nice job of allowing the player to view Middle-Earth, it just doesn't seem to work well in other areas.

    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.

    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.

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

    While Goblet of Fire might be a more exciting and fun game than the rest of the Potter series, it still lacks many of the ingredients that made the Lord of the Rings-based games so much fun.

    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.

    If you enjoyed the first game, then you will more than likely enjoy its sequel.

    A decent multiplayer game that you and a friend can probably enjoy spending a few hours of your time with.

    Often too chaotic for its own good. Struggling to lock onto enemies and the clunky camera will often frustrate gamers. The action is repetitive, but you get a good feeling from being outnumbered 20 to one and walking out alive.

    In short, diehard Fallout fans will be disappointed by Brotherhood of Steel, and even fans of hack-and-slash titles have much better options available to them. It's a bargain bin-title by now, though, so it's at least worth a thought.

    It is a dated game and it shows, but I believe RPG fans can have a good time, if they can look past some flaws that can be frustrating.

    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.

    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.

    If you enjoy constant hours of hacking and slashing your way through enemies, then Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code is a game that is highly recommended. Otherwise, be careful.

    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some satisfying moments in the game, but it is so generic and bland that probably only fans of the story will find it very entertaining.

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

    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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The game is relatively short. For the most part it’s somewhat easy, too. The save points are pretty spread out, which can be really frustrating when you die, but you’ll probably only die at the bosses.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The graphics are really nice and distinctive, the back story intriguing and immersive. The stanza system a superb way of letting each player not only level his char but also create his own set of customised actions. No need to rely only on what the devs thought your char should have. The game has come a long way since the beta that left me unconvinced. Fighting is more exciting and gratifying than it used to be. But the game still feels a bit unpolished, incomplete and the devs would better deliver on all the promised content.
