Capcom

Chaos Legion – Second Opinion

Brad's review hits all of the right notes. The game is stereotypical Capcom filtered through Square. The guys at Capcom have apparently let the success of the original Devil May Cry go to their heads and now spend lots of time working on games that attempt to ape that title's style. Unfortunately, like Devil May Cry 2, Chaos Legion is a pale imitation of Devil May Cry.

Viewtiful Joe

Game Description: In this fighting action game from Capcom USA Studio 4's Atsushi Inaba, players take control of an average, well, Joe as he's transported into his favorite movie. In his new environment, Joe discovers he has all the abilities of Hollywood action-hero when he becomes Viewtiful Joe. Using cel-shading techniques, VJ boasts a unique visual style that blends colorful 3D environments with a twisted take on traditional 2D gameplay. Joe's power stems from his skillful martial arts attacks, high-flying acrobatics, and time-bending special effects. Players can slow down or speed up time when attacking/ dodging enemies, as well as zoom in on the action to execute different attacks.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Intense Violence, Blood

Devil May Cry 2 – Second Opinion

The original Devil May Cry was the perfect antidote to the Resident Evil series. Instead of counting bullets the way a starving man counts bread crumbs, Devil May Cry gave me unlimited bullets. Instead of controlling the tank-like Resident Evil characters (turn, turn, turn, go forward), I had Dante, who moved with the style and grace of a Cirque du Soleil acrobat.

Chaos Legion

Game Description: The three sacred glyphs...the mythic and forbidden symbols of an ancient world torn apart. Only these mystic relics have the power to open the Gateway of Chaos and lead the people to the Red Moon. Legend says that when the three glyphs meet, the three worlds will once again be reunited.

Final Fight One – Second Opinion

Sadly, taking Final Fight One out for another spin proved to be a disaster and I took little joy in reenacting the old. The game is repetitive as Mike mentions, but that isn't what threw me for a loop. Even today, most contemporary games aren't as diverse as most people seem to think and repetition isn't necessarily the antithesis to engaging play.

Chaos Legion – Review

That's not to say that an emphasis on action is bad—far from it—but their perspective is so tightly focused that they're excluding elements that would make the games more enjoyably rounded. Chaos Legion is Capcom's latest in its recent string of thumb-killers, and though I dare say it's more successful than the last few, it shares the same stunted scope and narrow vision that holds back its siblings.

Clock Tower 3 Review

I'm a wuss when it comes to scary games. I don't know what it is, but playing them gets me seriously spooked. It's strange, because I wasn't always this way. Watching horror flicks is just fine with me, and the creepier the better. But with games it's a different story. Something about their interactivity gives me a palpable feeling of imminent danger; a more potent sensation than any film has ever induced.
