Gitaroo Man

Game Description: Gitaroo Man is an entirely new type of music rhythm game, in which your instrument is actually your weapon in the fight against evil. Unlike traditional music games that simply require the player to press buttons in rhythm with onscreen actions, Gitaroo Man makes players use both the analog stick and controller buttons at the same time, thus manipulating the onscreen characters with jumps, ducks, and attacks.

Gitaroo Man – Review

It's only March, and it's already been a great season for diverse gamers. For proof, we need look no further than the niche genre of music gaming. For a category of entertainment that had formerly been labeled too Japanese for western tastes, music games seem to be here to stay. It's funny to look back and see that such a thing was almost unthinkable even as recently as five years ago.

Gitaroo Man – Second Opinion

Gitaroo Man is probably the most demanding of rhythm games I've played and seems more improvisational in terms of working with beats than other music games like the flexibly challenging Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) series or Sega's more tempo-forgiving game, Rez.

Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland – Review

It is unfortunate that the simulation genre as it is known in Japan is not more popular in America. For years the Japanese game industry has enjoyed the success of many titles that define the term "simulation" with eccentric literalness.

Power Shovel – Review

Nobody can accuse the Japanese of being boring when it comes to their hobbies, interests, and obsessions. Anyone who dabbles in Japanese culture or frequents import shops can tell you that not only do the Japanese create all of the coolest toys, they also come up with some of the funkiest, craziest, and most off-the-wall stuff youve ever seen.

Power Shovel

Game Description: You’re the new guy on the construction site, and as luck would have it the foreman put you in charge of the power shovel. If you do well, he’ll give you a bunch of money. However, if you make mistakes, it’ll mean the end of a good job. In order to succeed, you’ll need to tear down buildings, win a speed-loading contest, and destroy a limousine in record time. With dozens of levels and cutscenes, Power Shovel is an entertaining original. Play alone or challenge a friend!
