The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS) Review

  The 3DS is one powerful handheld, not quite Vita powerful and yet its power lies somewhere between the Wii and Xbox 360/PS3’s capabilities. Star Fox 64 3D, has bump mapping in some levels, and the remake of the great and legendary, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, is further proof of this. There… Continue reading The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS) Review

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/GC) Review

  Nothing in this world is perfect; everything that was or is has flaws. It’s the law of nature; it’s the law of life. This law also applies to videogames because humans who are hindered by those laws create them. That being said, something very special, in fact, something quite extraordinary (some would say nothing… Continue reading The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/GC) Review

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (N64/GC) Review

While the 16 bit era came and went with only one Zelda title, the legendary A Link to the Past, the 32-64 bit era was a bit kinder to Zelda fans as it featured two great Zelda titles. One of them was of course (Arguably) the greatest game of all time Ocarina of Time in… Continue reading The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (N64/GC) Review

The Legend of Zelda (NES/GC) Review

This was the game that began everything, not just the Zelda series, but everything. Every RPG, especially Action-RPGs that came after the original Legend of Zelda, took gameplay and level design ideas from it. In 1987 this game was nothing short of revolutionary, a lot like what Ocarina of Time was in 1998. However I… Continue reading The Legend of Zelda (NES/GC) Review

The Legend of Dragoon (PS1) Review: A Bad FF7 Clone

Legend of Dragoon arrived on the PS1 with much fanfare

The Legend of Dragoon is an RPG that had seemly everything going for it: Three plus years in development, 100 plus men development team working on its creation, a massive add campaign, and a multimillion dollar budget coming out of the deep financial pockets of Sony itself. With all of this behind it, what could… Continue reading The Legend of Dragoon (PS1) Review: A Bad FF7 Clone

Tales of Vesperia (XBOX360) Review

MAYBE THE GREATEST J-RPG TODAY! I have played the Tales Series for about three entries, Symphonia, Legendia and now the 10th installment (in Japan) 2008’s Vesperia. I must say that it is perhaps one of the few long running RPG series that has maintained high standards of quality in terms of staying true to traditional… Continue reading Tales of Vesperia (XBOX360) Review

Tales of Legendia (PS2) Review

As readers of this website know, I am a firm believer that the Golden Era of Traditional RPGs occurred during the 32-bit epoch, a time that saw the release of many good titles that even today two generations later, can be enjoyed and appreciated by faithful hardcore RPG maniacs and new comers to the genre… Continue reading Tales of Legendia (PS2) Review

Suikoden IV (PS2) Review

The Suikoden Series hasn’t made the transition to modern consoles; Suikoden I+II are legendary, mostly because they are hard finds unless you go on e-bay. There are also many Suikoden spin offs on different systems. Konami definitely had, at least until the 3rd installment, a decent RPG franchise. Suikoden 3 made its debut on the… Continue reading Suikoden IV (PS2) Review
