“After playinf Chains of Olympus I decided to give GoS a look, I will forever regret that I did so. Ghost of Sparta starts with Kratos suffering a nightmare and for some reason going to the city of Atlantis, where once he lands he proceeds to slaughter yet again his way trough the city killing civilians, soldiers or monsters, all because he is now pissed for a random reason. Once we find Kratos mother we learn that she knows somehow that his never before known brother Demios is *gasp* alive! But for telling that to Kratos Zeus and his pals transform her into a monster that Kratos has to put down, essentially mercy killing, but after doing the deed turns out there was no mercy, somewhere between the cutscene and the boss battle Kratos flew into a beserk rage... ok? This is a case of where show do not tell needed to be applied because the scene ends with Kratos horror, you fight and then he realizes he went into a rage, it's that bad. Oh then later we learn that Athena tells Kratos that Poseidon is...”

“I have heard several times how good and great God of War is, how awesome it is to go killing Greek Gods and Beasts. Sadly the entire experience is hampered by a poor narrative, a poor gameplay that attempts to be edgy and radical but it's not fun. Regarding the Narrative we have our protagonist Kratos, a spartan and General Ripper who made a deal with Ares in order to win a battle he would lose, but then Ares manipulated him into killing his own family and now he serves as the Gods personal hitman on speed dial. Kratos is less than heroic, he is an asshole with few redeeming qualities, he is all about revenge and killing things, oh and more revenge, did I mention the anger management issues and the revenge? Yeah, thats all Kratos is over several games he gains little development, simply switching the target of his hatred from Ares to the Gods then to himself, all in all a boring character. Athena serves as the omnipotent narrator of the story but it does not adds much beyond pointing the...”

“This is when Final Fantasy started getting really good. Let's recap before we begin to emphasize that fact - the first game was good for its time but was more about level grinding than anything as the story hardly existed until the last dungeon, the second game was overly ambitious with some dickish design choices amongst a good story, and the third game had some great ideas compounded by harsh difficulty. Where does Final Fantasy 4 get it right? By being a more character driven experience while introducing the ATB system that relies on quickness to add legitimate challenge to a game that otherwise relies on simplistic strategies. Through everything that it does, it opens up a new level of Final Fantasy, taking everything from the first games, irons out the flaws and plays to the strengths. It's not a perfect game, but it comes pretty damn close to the mark at the best of times and even at its worst, it's still a reasonably good game. Oh and there's the direct sequel somewhere that I'll also cover in...”

“Oh boy, another NES game given the HD makeover on the PSP to celebrate Final Fantasy's 20 years of existing! And it's one that wasn't released in English until Final Fantasy Origins was released on the PS1 in 2003! For once, it's not being released in the same CD or cartridge as Final Fantasy 1, but hey, we want to know what the real Final Fantasy 2 was like, so let's sink our teeth into it... I mean, you would hope that the only reason that it never got a domestic release was due to JRPGs not being profitable outside of Japan back in the 80s and early 90s, and maybe the first Final Fantasy's sales weren't good enough to justify even bothering for a domestic release of Final Fantasy 2 (and 3). After playing through this, it's clear that given some of the changes in the formula, it'd be hard to get non-Japanese people into it, and given the lukewarm sales of Final Fantasy 1, well, that just seals the deal. One such change is the story. Instead of it simply being in the background, it's a serious driving...”

“Has it already been 20 years? Well, technically, it's been about 26 years as of writing this review, but this was released on Final Fantasy 1's 20th birthday, so... let's just go with that. When you think about it, the JRPG formula has advanced quite a bit over these past twenty-something years, what with them being more story driven and whatnot. Sure, they still have the odd bit of grinding here and there, but they try to alleviate it by designing the game so that either little to no grinding is necessary (Final Fantasy X's linear design comes to mind here), quests mask grinding (Xenoblade Chronicles and Dragon's Dogma come to mind) or you actually get punished for grinding (The Last Remnant's battle rank system comes to mind). But 80s JRPGs... man, you pretty much had to grind in order to stand a chance against bosses and probably even enemies if they wanted to be particularly cruel, all in the name of extending the game's length as NES game stories were best served short and sweet. Hour long cutscenes...”

“Half-Minute Hero has six different storylines consisting of 3 Action RPG-style modes, one Real Time Strategy mode, a Shoot ‘Em Up mode, and a mode made out of Protect the King style of gameplay. However, the latter three of these are removed in the Xbox Live Arcade version and swapped with the Action RPG style, making the game feel stale and repetitive. Although originally the game hardly has a plot, it is dedicated to the bits of plot it actually has. For the three modes immediately available (Hero 30, which is one of the three Action RPG modes, Evil Lord 30, which is the Real Time Strategy mode, and Princess 30, which is the Shoot ‘Em Up mode), they each have an excuse plot at most, yet have moments that are surprisingly touching. The fourth and fifth modes each have a more complicated and considerably darker story, showing both character growth and a few plot twists. The sixth mode abandons a plot altogether and just has the closest thing the game has to a narrator mock you and dare you to beat it. The...”

“Hello!!! I´m Alex and i´m portuguese!!! Today here is my review of PES2013 for PSP. Graphics: Well, well, this is the worse part of my review.....the graphics are terrible!!! It´s even more outdated than PES1!!! In build face mode with skin 1 your player will look asian!!! But if you are an experienced builder of faces,you can do a face almost exactly like yours if you have experience building faces(the control method of building faces is like PES 5) Still,what to expect? They don´t care for PES franchise on PSP and PS2. I give the graphics 2.0 Gameplay:The more interesting part of the game is gameplay. Master League isn´t bad but it´s exactly the same as 2012 on PSP. That was the most surprising cliché in the game. In Master League:you hire scouts, send them, hire trainers, sign contracts, deal with fans and all that stuff. However Master League mode is really addictive even if it is an adaptation of a pre-existing game mode. I think this game is an "adaptation" game. Become a Legend mode is the...”

“Coffee and salt, beer and milk, women and driving, Justin Beiber and vocal cords. Some things just shouldn’t be put together, ever. Other things do work well together; Coffee and sugar, beer and pizza, women and iro… flowers, Justin Beiber and Sledgehammers, Disney and Final Fantasy. Who would have thought that the combination of the world’s most lovable animated characters would gel so well with the world’s favourite RPG icons? Over ten years ago, Kingdom Hearts worked, and as a result, sold millions of copies. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, many years on, attempts to refresh many of the aspects that made the original so popular. As a huge fan of the original, I’ll admit that I found a little enjoyment within the most recent instalment, but the magic just wasn’t there. The game is set ten years before the original game. Early in the game, main characters Terra and Aqua are sent to investigate the mysterious appearance of the Unversed. This narrative follows a very unconventional structure in that it...”

“Madworld was not made by capcom, it was made by Clover Studios that became Platinumgames and was sponsored by Sega. I could compare it to say No More Heroes 1 and 2, and NMH still comes ontop.”
