Castlevania: Curse of Darkness – Review

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness is the newest game in the venerable Castlevania series, and it leaps forth in another bid to bring the dark world of Dracula into three dimensions. It obviously builds upon the foundations set by Lament of Innocence, while addressing lessons learned there—particularly that Lament was far too short. Curse of Darkness attempts to give the modern gamer something he can really sink his teeth into.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness

Game Description: Castlevania: Curse of Darkness delivers an entirely new storyline and main character to the classic game world. In Castlevania the story always revolved around the Belmont family and Dracula, but now there's a new character with new abilities: Hector, a Devil Forgemaster who once refined his skills under Dracula. Fueled by revenge for the murder of his girlfriend, Hector sets off to confront the evil forces of the night. Armed with the powerful skill of Devil Forgery, he must find his way back to the ruins of Dracula's castle and uncover an intricate web of deception—completely unaware that it is all a sinister play, orchestrated to lure him home.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow – Second Opinion

The GBA games were high-quality titles, and on the DS, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is no exception. I definitely agree with Brad in this regard. Yet, for all the quality of the work, I feel Castlevania has finally—for now—run out of steam.

Lost in Blue – Second Opinion

I strongly suspect that the gameplay of Lost in Blue, which has a lot of hidden depth and open-ended options, can be radically different depending on how a player approaches the game. I can't say for sure that Brad and other critics that made similar complaints would feel any differently had they shared an experience closer to mine.

Suikoden Tactics – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Cartoon Violence, Mild Language

Suikoden Tactics – Review

Ah, Suidoken. When is this series ever going to get back on its feet? Pound for pound, I would say that the first two games in the series can hold their own against any other role-playing games (RPGs) out there. Suikoden II in particular still ranks as one of the best RPGs I've ever played, period. With such a strong start, I seriously don't understand how it's possible that the developers behind the more recent installments keep dropping the ball. III was painfully slow and IV was a bizarre seagoing deviation leaving most fans with a bad taste in their mouths. Striking out in a different direction and hoping to revive this flagging series, Konami brings us Suikoden Tactics.

Suikoden Tactics

Game Description: Suikoden Tactics takes you into the world of the popular role-playing game Suikoden, for incredible strategy and combat simulation gaming. See this world through the eyes of Kyril, a young adventurer who investigates the sudden appearance of hideous creatures in the Island Nations. As you explore and battle with him, you'll discover the secrets of the legendary Rune Cannons—and try to destroy them before they destroy the world.

Lost in Blue – Review

I loved it. I hated it. I still can't make up my mind. Lost in Blue is a rare game: one that has brilliant vision and dismal design choices in perfectly equal amounts. Its good and evil halves are so finely balanced, in fact, that I can't decide whether I should celebrate or revile it.
