Final Fantasy Type-0

- PSP

Before I begin my review I would just like to point out something for players that haven't played Type-0 but intend to with the impending HD re-release. A significant enough issue with Type-0 which I found was the lack of clarity for players in regards to side-quests and replaying the game on New Game +, namely what quests would remain open for you to do after you do a main mission and which on...

Tales of Xillia

- PS3

The latest of a slew of Tales titles due to hit the West in their translated forms, Tales of Xillia was initially released in Asia just a tad over 2 years ago. Xillia has gone on to be one of the most marketable (and marketed) titles in the Tales series for a number of reasons, including its sequel which is due to hit the lands of the West somewhere around the first or second quarter of 2014. W...

Killer is Dead

- PS3

Goichi Suda (better known as Suda51) is known for making some extremely quirky and at times bizarre games. The only one I had played before Killer Is Dead was Shadows of The Damned, and while it was a fairly simple game, I actually found it a lot of fun, and while the dialogue and penis and other sex-related jokes seemed to go on endlessly, they still added some of that typical Suda style to th...

Tales of Graces F

- PS3

The latest in the Tales series to be released to the West, Tales of Graces f follows a group of youngsters brought together by intertwining paths on a quest to save the world from some guy that is evil and stuff (how original!). OK it's not as simple or as cliché as that, although as you can guess since it's usually the case with the majority of JRPGs like this, it does at one stage turn into s...

E.X. Troopers

- PS3

There are lots of things that have disappointed me with modern gaming. Unfinished games, patches used to finish games which players still have to pay full price for on release, the awful milking of downloadable content (specifically disc-locked content), rehashes of various games, and an all-round bad approach from publishers and (some) developers to gamers - the people that, after all, keep th...

Tales of Vesperia

- Xbox 360

Developed by Namco Tales Studio in its long-running Tales series, Tales of Vesperia takes place in Terca Lumireis, a world full of differing lands and cities which is dominated by monsters. The people of the world utilise (and indeed come to rely on) blastia - items created by the Krityan race - which can offer various benefits to people, such as increasing combat abilities, providing and regul...

FIFA 13

- PS3

FIFA 13 is the latest instalment in one of EA Sports' most successful annual franchises. Truth be told, it's a pretty decent entry. Bare in mind that my last real full FIFA title was FIFA 10, as I had tried FIFA 11 but gave up after a few weeks after realising it was the same game as the previous two iterations bar some minor changes like different animations. FIFA, as always, is seen as the...

Shadow of the Colossus

- PS3

Shadow of The Colossus is the spiritual successor to Team Ico's ICO, but is a vastly different game. While ICO mostly focused on puzzles, Shadow of The Colossus is all about action and the great colossi which you have to take down. The game begins as the protagonist, Wander, and his horse, Agro, travel to a forbidden land in search of the ancient power of Dormin, an entity which is said to be a...

Shadows of the Damned

- Xbox 360

One of Suda 51's latest titles to grace the gaming world (with a helping hand from Shinji Mikami) is a horror-shooter set in the underworld, which follows demon hunter Garcia Hotspur and his attempt to free his girlfriend from the clutches of the demon overlord Fleming, who enjoys nothing more than feasting on a tasty human sandwich and who has stolen Paula from Garcia for his own pleasure. Gar...

ICO

ICO tells the story of a young boy born with horns, and who is taken to be locked away from his village because of it. As he attempts to escape the castle which he has been confined to, he stumbles upon a mysterious girl in white in a hanging cage. The girl is from another world and is barely able to communicate with Ico apart from simple signals (such as pointing, or a shake of the head) and s...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

The influx of Western RPGs in this generation of gaming has perhaps been a little worrying for those with a taste for the Japanese style of game, and so as we (possibly) near the end of this cycle of consoles how well does one of the earlier and least-talked about JRPGs of this gen hold up on the rather lightly-filled canvas of Japanese role-playing games? Is it just another attempt by Hironobu...

Mass Effect 3

- Xbox 360

Just as a note, there are spoilers in this review, and I will mark out where they will begin, but please be careful to not scroll down too far in-case you notice something you didn't wish to. "Space. It's huge." Oh wait wrong series... Mass Effect 3 was one of 2012's most eagerly-awaited titles by a long-shot. With EA's big advertising effort they aimed to draw in new players to the serie...
