Disgaea is great and has a lot going, but I love and hate it at the same time. The humorous story and crazy characters really appealed to me, and gave me a strong incentive to see the next cutscene. There are dozens of (literally) laugh out loud moments, and the words "horse wiener" will forever be burned into my memory.

In Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, there are no princesses to save. There are no worlds to conquer, no aliens to thwart. There's only a dilapidated farm that a young man and his partner Takakura must turn into a thriving business. Players raise livestock, grow crops and remodel buildings. But those who think that virtual farming is about as much fun as watching corn grow should think again.

Ah, Future Tactics … currently a red-headed stepchild of the videogame review world. Saddled with poor cover art and positioned as a budget release, nearly every write-up I've read takes delight in putting it down, many of them aggressively. Not being independently wealthy, I held off on a purchase myself until I saw a demo running.
Game Description: The future looks grim for humans unless you've got what it takes to save the world. In Future Tactics: The Uprising you can lead your team of rag-tag human survivors against the multi-dimensional creature overlords who have taken over Earth. Game focuses on action, not stats, and the terrain is reformed as you attack blasting holes in walls, making craters out of meadows and sending boulders flying like toys. Customizable 2-player battle mode lets you modify handicaps, power-ups and victory conditions. Or play 19-level story mode and earn points to upgrade to more powerful weapons.

Mike did his usual great job covering the nuts and bolts of Gladius, and I agree with most of his observations. However, there was one line of his that caught my attention: "While Gladius doesn't do anything to redefine the strategy RPG subgenre, it does do just enough things well to keep players interested for the duration."
Game Description: In Goblin Commander: Unleash The Horde, you lead your goblin clans through ceaseless battle in the war-torn land of Ogriss, a world ruled by goblins. Advancing through dark subterranean caves, lush woodland cities and towering storm-swept castles; you wage war with an army of specialized goblin warriors and fearsome monsters.
