Pirates of the Caribbean Review

When it comes to games based off of current movies they’re always hit and miss for responses from the masses. Sometimes this can be attributed to short playtime or just bad control systems or gameplay offerings. Bethesda the publisher commonly associated with the award winning series Morrowind has taken up the challenge of producing Pirates of the Caribbean for the PC and XBOX gaming platforms to go alongside Disney’s release of the feature film.

Morrowind Review

Most would agree that the RPG genre is going through another one of its periodic revivals at this point in time. Along with Dungeon Siege and the upcoming Neverwinter Nights, one of the most talked about RPGs coming out this year is definitely Bethesda Softworks’ Morrowind, the third game in the Elder Scrolls RPG series. Several years in the making after its first two successful predecessors (Arena and Daggerfall), Morrowind has had its fair share of hype and expectations.

Dungeon Siege Review

Famous for their hit RTS game Total Annihilation, Chris Taylor’s Gas Powered Games’ forges have produced the latest action-based RPG to hit the shelves; Dungeon Siege. Promising many hours of gameplay in a continuous world (i.e. no “zones” to load), lots of eye candy, and ease of modification for those who are so inclined, DS appears to be poised to become one of the top games to come out this year, at least on paper. Does it deliver on its promises, or is it merely (as some people describe it) a Diablo clone?

Dark Age of Camelot Review

Over the last few years we have seen the creation and rapid expansion of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game genre. Although Ultima Online didn’t really start the genre, it did a lot to popularize the idea of a virtual world where many people could congregate online and interact with each other. As if a game of this kind wasn’t addictive enough for some people, the transition from a 2D world to a 3D one surely made it so.

Final Fantasy X Review

When you’re playing a video game, there’s no bigger complement to pay it than to wish that it was over just so that you could play it all over again. That’s what I felt playing Final Fantasy X. This installment of Square’s flagship series makes good use of the PS2; bending some time-tested FF traditions while outright breaking others.

Arthur's Knights: Tales of Chivalry Review

One of the most enduring legends in the Western world is that of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Residing in mythical Camelot, King Arthur and his knights represented the chivalric ideals that people looked for during the Dark Ages and thus provided a basis for the popular image of what a brave and heroic knight should be.

You play Joseph, born with the mark of the summoner. Destined to bring havoc and misery to the land with a power that rivals the gods. When Joseph was still a child, he conjured a powerful demon to protect his village from raiders. But he was weak and lost control of the creature, and it rampaged through and slaughtered everything in its wake. Only Joseph, his friend Jekhar, and a priest-turned-beggar named Yago survived.
