Persona 4 is the kind of game that sort of goes all over the place and tries to be many things at once. It tries to be a JRPG with a murder mystery story, a dungeon crawler with a somewhat quirky rock-paper-scissors system, a visual novel and a high school student life simulator. That's quite a lot to try and be. The problem is that it honestly feels like two games haphazardly put together with sticky tape and glue sticks. As a result, the flow of one game constantly gets interrupted or slowed down by the flow of the other game. For a while, I never understood the appeal because I can go and play RPGs and visual novels with more depth and grace in its execution. It has all the makings of being a mediocre game as its dungeons start to run together, its enemies are mostly inconsequential and used only for grinding, and the visual novel aspects are threadbare. It's also insanely addicting. Due to its simplicity and fun albeit melodramatic and – at times – borderline pseudo-intellectual script, Persona 4...
Why I think Shadow of the Colossus isn't as perfect as everyone says it is...

I'm gonna be swarmed by angry fans aren't I..? *Sigh* Okay, well if I'm gonna die today, I might as well tell my assailants my reasons for not loving their precious game... Shadow of the Colossus is a VERY good game, in fact, it would easily make the top 3's in my top 10 favorite games if I made those lists, but, the game isn't perfect, in fact it is far from perfect... One of my more popular reasons for saying this is that this game is so confusing; I'm aware that Ueda said that the story (or lack thereof) adds to the "Romantic Appeal" of the game...okay, come on, we buy games to play them, not to sit back and stare at it like a painting, sure, it IS art, but it's not THAT kind of art. Either Ueda put all of his ideas and creativity into the expansive over world of SOTC, he just got too lazy, or got carried away with the idea that SOTC is an Art Game (I'm going for either the first, or third reason by the way, I just can't picture Fumito just suddenly losing interest in such a splendid game),...
Soul Calibur II is my #1 favorite fighting game of all time. It took everything from the blockbuster smash hit Soul Calibur and made it better. If you're a fan of the fighting genre, definitely purchase this game. Whichever version you choose, you will NOT be sorry. The story in this game is quite nice and some characters' stories will suck you in. Especially the new characters. It's not the best in the world but it's pretty close. There isn't really much to say about the story since it's a fighting game and let's face it fighting games never really have noticeable stories. The gameplay is really nice. The controls are tight and very responsive. Despite some glitches, the fighting system in Soul Calibur II is very good and complex. Some may say that it's too complex but I disagree. I like that the system isn't too simple but it's not too complex either. It's a good balance. Some of the characters are easy to master and some are not so easy. The characters in the game are quite a great colorful...
So, I am reviewing my favorite PS2 game of all time, Jak and Daxter. Gameplay: The main aspect of this game is to collect all of the Power Cells scattered across the levels. Some may be obtained through sidequests, reaching the end of a level, or just defeating a certain number of enemies. Another one, (which I am not too fond of) you must collect seven Scout Flies that are are also in every level, including the hub worlds. They can be difficult to get when on a Zoomer, (a motorbike used to travel across lava, or fire) because you have to be precise when you ram into it, or you might miss it and have to backtrack through the level again because when you miss one the Zoomer's damage counter is steadily rising up, which could mean death for Jak. I should mention the Power Cells themselves in this part. There are 101 Power Cells in total in the game. However, 100 are needed to see the secret ending. Overall, I think the gameplay was handled pretty well. The Zoomer is the only drawback to it, however....
We start off with the new villain Count Veger banishing Jak to the Wasteland, where Jak has a flashback of Haven's Palace being attacked. Once you start the game, you quickly meet Damas and Kleiver, the people that run Spargus. Plotline, yada yada. The missions aren't easy, but you never take 3 hours to do one either. Not all the missions tie directly to the plot, like finding artifacts, or corralling wild leapers in Dead Town. What I really like about Jak 3 is every button does something. L2=Light/Dark Jak. R2=Jetboard. L1=Crouch/Roll. R1=Fire. The thing about it is, not only is it easily accessible, you actually use them quite a bit. I use the Jetboard and Light Jak more than everything else combined. Anyway, time for a real review. Graphics: Greatly improved since Jak and Daxter, and better still than Jak II. Nothing is really that fancy or intricate, but detailed flawless nonetheless. Plot: The plot goes more with Jak and Daxter than Jak II, but the quality of the storyline never really goes...
Tekken 4 was the first Tekken game I've ever played. I bought it at a pawn shop when I was in 6th grade. Now that I've played all of the other Tekken games, I don't play 4 as much as I used to. But I still think it's a great game. The story isn't really much. All there is to know is that every character has entered the KOIF4 and for their own reasons. As for why, Arcade mode is there for that. The prologues are quite a nice addition compared to the previous Tekken games. Now you know why the characters are entering the tournament. Plot holes filled. Some stories aren't as exciting as others and some stories (and endings) are intertwined with each other. But if you wish to unlock more characters, you have to play through Arcade mode. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. The characters roster is small compared to Tekken Tag and Tekken 3 but I prefer quality over quantity. Kazuya Mishima returns (despite being killed off in Tekken 2) and he's better than ever! There are three new characters introduced in...
When I first played this game in middle school, I didn't really expect much from it. But as soon as I heard the amazing theme song, I was blown away! So blown away that I couldn't stop singing along to it. Right then and there, I knew I had a good game in my collection. The gameplay is very unique for a Sonic game. Something that I definitely appreciate. There are 4 teams: Team Sonic, Team Rose, Team Dark, and Team Chaotix. Each team consists of 3 members and each member has their own specialty: speed, fly, and power. You have to use each formation correctly in order to get past the stages and defeat Eggman. Each team also has their own difficulty: Team Rose is for beginners, Team Sonic is for medium-level players, and Team Dark is for intermediate players. As for Team Chaotix, let's just say they're in a class of their own. As for the story of the game, it doesn't really have one. Each team is after Eggman and for their own reasons. That's all there is to it. Not much of a story but hey it's a Sonic...
A wonderful RPG. Definitely a must-have for Final Fantasy and Disney fans!

Kingdom Hearts II is one of the best RPGs I've ever played hands down. It deserves all the hype and recognition it gets. The story is absolutely amazing, the characters are unforgettable, and the battle system is a vast improvement over the first game. There are some new worlds and some old ones. The new worlds are based off of quite amazing Disney classics such as Mulan and The Lion King. Which is definitely wonderful for me since I'm a big, longtime Disney fan. There are also various characters from the Final Fantasy franchise. Some will be your allies and some will be your enemies. The battle system has definitely changed a lot from the first game and rightfully so due to how frustrating the controls and camera were. The system in this game is easier to use and has all kinds of nifty new features that you will definitely love. The story in this game will confuse you at first and starts off rather slow and sluggish which may even turn you off but things soon heat up and you'll find yourself immersed...
