Koei

Crimson Sea – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Suggestive Themes, Violence

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 – 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.

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.

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language

Saiyuki: Journey West

Game Description: As a young Buddhist monk in China, you’ve never had much cause for adventure in your sedentary life. Your life becomes very exciting when Lady Kannon, one of heaven’s six guardians, suddenly contacts you. Journeying through immense 3D maps, you’ll meet up with a host of amazing personalities in your search for the remaining five guardians of heaven. The object of the game is to bring the entire group to India; you’ll need all of the magic, weaponry, and reflexes you can drum up.

Saiyuki: Journey West – Review

Saiyuki is at it's a heart a turn-based strategy role-playing game (RPG) similar to games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Vandal Hearts. Whether or not this genre is appropriate given the source material is debatable, but it's an interesting route the developers choose to take nonetheless.

Saiyuki: Journey West – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence 

Saiyuki: Journey West – Second Opinion

Since Im not going to attempt to tackle the meta-issues or any cultural relevance here, Ill focus on the nuts and bolts of the game itself, irrespective of its historical background.

Dynasty Warriors 3 – Review

Dynasty Warriors 3 is, at its core, what many old-school gamers call a beat-em-up. In the tradition of coin-op classics like Double Dragon and Final Fight, a beat-'em-ups most distinguishing characteristic is usually the endless hordes of computer opponents a player must combat (usually with fists, weapons and anything else a player can get his hands on) and the repetitive nature of the gameplay which is usually tantamount to a wholelotta button-mashing.
