Onimusha: Warlords – Second Opinion

While I don't entirely agree with Brad's review of Onimusha, Im not exactly going to dispute much of it either. His points are for the most part valid. I just wasnt as annoyed or bored by Onimusha as he was (or at least not as quickly as he was).

Onimusha: Warlords – Review

I usually like to spend the first portion of a review talking about interesting concepts or ideas present in the game I am about to review. Sometimes it takes a more personal slant, other times it might be historical or relate to current trends in the game world and society at large. After playing Onimusha, I was at a loss.

The Bouncer – Review

Everything old is new again. A few hardware generations ago on older machines, there were a string of titles which were really nothing but a lot of low-quality full-motion video (FMV) packaged to fool people into thinking they were actual games. While the definition of what is or is not a "game" doesn't exactly have any rules carved in stone, it's pretty safe to say that those titles were more B-movie than anything else.

The Bouncer

Game Description: After Dominique is kidnapped, three of her friends who happen to be bouncers at a seedy bar called Fate set out to rescue her. You take control of Volt, Sion, or Kou as they engage in hand-to-hand combat with a wide variety of enemies on their quest to find their friend. When you defeat an enemy, you will earn bouncer points that can be used to buy new skills and improve baseline statistics. It’s up to you to save Dominique in The Bouncer. Experience action, adventure, and RPG elements as you fight your way through a shifting storyline in this Square-made brawler.

The Bouncer – Second Opinion

I struggled to understand where the game was coming from conceptually, and what it was trying to achieve as an interactive experience. Still, despite poor word of mouth from the press and gamers alike, I still gave The Bouncer the benefit of the doubt. In the process of playing through the game for the purposes of my review and enjoyment, I tried to look at it from different angles, but no matter which context I tried to look at it from, it still pretty much stank up da house.

SSX – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Mild Animated Violence, Mild Language

SSX – Review

What makes a person strap a piece of fiberglass to his feet and careen down a mountainside? Probably the same thing that keeps me seated safely in front of my television playing a game based on that sport. Snowboarding is not for the timid. At its very core, its a sport for the daredevil—anyone willing to go to the edge to show-off his skill or test his mettle. For the rest of us, SSX is the next best thing to being there. It takes a sport already bursting with attitude and bravado and cranks it up a few notches. The result is a game that provides a fun, wild ride and actually does its job in justifying the purchase of Sony's high-priced PlayStation 2.

SSX – Second Opinion

First off, let me say that SSX isn't exactly the killer-app that everyone makes it out to be. Like Dale, my experience with SSX also saw its highs and lows (and I'm not just talking about the slopes, either). At first, I too was blown away by the visuals, but I didn't initially see what was so great about the gameplay.
