Ubisoft

Deathrow

Game Description: Deathrow pits two teams in a no-limits, no-honor, total-aggression arena battle. In Deathrow, there are no rules and full-contact aggression is not only legal, it is required! The fastest, toughest players are victorious and the slow and weak are defeated. The game combines the lightning-fast gameplay of third-person action games with the cooperative team play and gritty roughness of rugby, offering a unique combat sport experience.

Deathrow – Review

Deathrow graces the Xbox without much media hype or word of mouth, but its a game that should definitely create a buzz in the gaming community. It doesnt have a million-dollar ad campaign or an established franchise to move it off shelves, but it has a unique concept, polished graphics and sound, lots of options, and deceptively simple gameplay that is sure to challenge even the most seasoned gamer.

Grandia II

Game Description: Dive into a world of fantasy, combat, and magical intrigue in Grandia II for the Dreamcast. You are Ryudo, a young hero entrusted with a vital mission to escort the priestess Elena. In your epic journey you'll explore dank and dangerous dungeons, utilize powerful magic, gather precious items, and battle fierce enemies. Improve your skills, meet scores of colorful characters, and save the world in the beautiful, 3D, interactive, role-playing of Grandia II from Game Arts.

Grandia II – Review

Grandia II isn't a landmark game by any means, but it comes pretty close to being an amazing role-playing game done in the traditional style. It looks great, has solid gameplay, great characters and a well-written story, but it's basically as straight-forward a role-playing game as you're likely to find.

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

Grandia II – Second Opinion

After forcing myself to sit through Final Fantasy VIII and The Legend Of Dragoon, I appreciate any game or developer that does away with prerendered 2D backgrounds. Though not always as pretty, 3D graphics like those found in the game add a level of interactivity—and dare I say realism—that the aforementioned titles were missing.

Evolution 2: Far Off Promise – Review

The sequel to Dreamcast's very first RPG, Evolution: World Of Sacred Device, Evolution 2: Far Off Promise doesn't tell a particularly enthralling story, nor does it provide much of a break from the familiar RPG fighting. What it does do is take a more logical and fun approach to a genre that has changed very little over the years.

Evolution 2: Far Off Promise

Game Description: Mag Launcher and his crew are back for more role-playing adventures on the Dreamcast with Evolution 2. Delving deeper into the story and characters than did its predecessor, Evolution 2 starts by showing how Mag's dungeon-exploring exploits have gained him a little notoriety, leading Dr. Whitehead to invite him on a new expedition. This sequel adds a new character to the cast, Yurka, but there's reason to suspect his motivations. You'll fight battles both day and night, collect treasure, and solve puzzles that bring you further into the game's story. Evolution 2 features 3D characters, a third-person perspective, Visual Memory Unit support, and a turn-based battle engine that's easy to learn.

Evolution 2: Far Off Promise – Second Opinion

From Bens review of Evolution 2, I can tell he didnt play the first part. I know because the sentiments he expressed about the sequel are very similar to my critique of the original. Those exposed to the series for the first time—whether it be part one or two—are bound to have a positive reaction.
