Valkyria Chronicles

In between all the gaming violence of the last couple of weeks there’s a game that sadly hasn’t gotten all the attention it deserves. Sega delivers a pearl of a game with Valkyria Chronicles. People who thought that November and December would be expensive gaming months could best relook their Santa Clause list and see […]

Golden Axe: Beast Rider

Forget everything you knew about Golden Axe. Forget that you played it with your friend or your brother and try not to remember the fun you experienced with it. Forget that it was an enjoyable game and erase the memory of what Golden Axe once was. There’s no room for nostalgic feelings here, because it […]

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Sonic is back in an RPG made by Bioware, known from many other excellent games in that genre. This can only be a good thing, we think then. However, what’s never certain is how far we go that side. The Chaos Emeralds have been stolen once again and the trails lead in first instance to […]

Yakuza 2

yakuza2

Sega didn’t too all too bad with Yakuza. A decent story, rock solid combat, beautiful surroundings and, unfortunately, a lesser sound quality. These elements together formed a whole that was certainly worth revisiting. Now, almost two years later, Sega has arrived with a sequel which has been available in Japan already for almost equally long. […]

Samba de Amigo

“Shake what your mamma gave ya!” is a shout that perfectly fits a game like Samba de Amigo. When you have to use the Wiimote and nunchuck as maracas and shake to the rythm of the music, everything stands or falls with the registered precision or lack thereof though… The idea of Samba de Amigo […]

Space Siege

Earth is wiped out and there are plenty of hostile aliens on your escape spaceship (which is stacked full of explosives). The ship’s AI sounds eerily cold and it doesn’t seem like you can trust every member of your crew. There are more pleasant circumstances to start a new game in but not so in […]

Iron Man

I broke up with her a long time ago. I didn’t like her anymore. The connection was gone and we were stuck in a rut. But as they all say: you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. The heartache became unbearable and I had to see her again. The gaming business that is. […]

The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return

Although the Wii and its pointing system is perfect for shooters, the number of great shooters is pretty limited. That’s why Sega decided to relaunch his classic arcade games The House of the Dead 2 & 3. Release the zombies! The House of the Dead 2 is situated in Venice, two years after the mysterious […]

SEGA Superstars Tennis

At Nintendo they’ve been doing it for ages already: bringing famous characters together in some sort of fight-, sports- or party game and then wait until the money comes pouring in. “We can do that too!”, they must have thought at SEGA, and the conception of SEGA Superstars Tennis was a fact. That developer SUMO […]

Viking: Battle for Asgard

You only have to mention the word fantasy and a lot of people will immediately think of elves and orcs. Yet the word fantasy consists of more than just these things and Creative Assembly had the same thought about it. Instead of sissy men and green beasts, we get tough vikings and hellish armies! Can […]

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer

Nowadays it seems to be a habit for developers to republish their old games, like Square-Enix does with the Final Fantasy franchise. In most cases, it concerns games that knew a large success in the past. Now Sega ventures an attempt to polish his antique. With Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer for the Nintendo DS, […]

Condemned 2

While Manhunt 2 is constantly in the news thanks to its violent content, Condemned 2 seems to silently sneak onto store shelves. Strange as this game tries to do three things well: shock, scare and fill your screen with as gruesome and bloody scenes as possible. Kids, moms and people with a faint heart know […]

Bleach: The Blade of Fate

Good fighting games for the DS are as scarse as politically engaged hookers in Teheran. Luckily the arrival of Sega’s Bleach: The Blade of Fate finally changes that. Finally is actually quite an understatement. Our Japanese friends got to check this one out already two years ago and one could get angry for less. That […]

Nights: Journey of Dreams

Nights: Journey of Dreams, developed by Sega, is the successor to one of the most popular games ever on the Sega Saturn. Personally I never got to play the original, let alone see it, so I have no clue what it’s supposedly all about. Anyway, I hope for all the fans of that old bugger […]

Bleach: Shattered Blade

I didn’t know it, but Bleach is a big hit in Japan and the Usa. Where I’m from, it’s a bit more difficult to find the manga or anime series but Bleach has fans everywhere. Not strange, as Bleach has mixed everything from Dragonball Z to Naruto. The average Japanese clash of the nonsense with […]
