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 […]


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 […]


Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness makes use of the same formula as predecessors Blue and Red Rescue Team, but is the game equally good? Let’s find out! Just like in the previous episodes the game starts with answering a couple of questions. Depending on that you get a Pokemon assigned that best fits your […]


Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures


Many MMORPG players have kept an eye on Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Reasons for this were beautiful graphics, an adult setting and tons of blood. Hard facts or simple PR talk that is meant to hide another weak World of Warcraft clone? If you hear the name Conan, most people think about movies with […]


Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3


If there is one developer besides Square-Enix who are well known for their Japanese RPGs, then it’s Atlus. With the Shin Megami Tensei series, they have produced some of the best RPGs for the Playstation and Playstation 2 and it look like this won’t change real quickly, since they just released Shin Megami Tensei: Persona […]


Harvest Moon: Magical Melody

Two years ago, you could find Harvest Moon: Magical Melody for GameCube on the shelves, except if you lived in Europe. The game just wasn’t released over here. To make up for that, we get a port of the game for the Wii. Of course, the question is whether the game is still worth it […]


Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The Fire Emblem franchise knows a long history. It all began on the Gameboy Advance. Afterwards we could enjoy it on the GameCube and now finally it makes its debut on the Wii. Fire Emblem: Radian Dawn is a turn-based strategy game and as we know there aren’t many titles left in this genre. With […]


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, […]


Lost Odyssey

Japanese RPGs have always been a triumph card for the consoles of Sony and Nintendo. If you wanted a game where you could spend hundreds of hours on it, then you simply had to get one of their consoles. Microsoft Studios figured this out as well and to try and gain some popularity in Asia […]


Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom

The Kingdom Under Fire series has tried a lot of things and genres. Circle of Doom for the Xbox360 is the latest attempt in the series where just about all strategy is thrown overboard and the card of full hack&slash gameplay is drawn. Unfortunately it didn’t end up in triomph. A first disappointment already is […]


Guild Wars: Eye of the North

Eye of the North is the first real expansion we get to play for Guild Wars, the quite hard to define online RPG. This means that you need a Guild Wars game before you can play it ànd that you need to have reached a level 20 with you character before you can get going […]


Mass Effect

Saving the world has become so easy, but helping the entire universe out of trouble: now that’s a challenge! This is also what you are going to do in Mass Effect, the newest game of Bioware. For those who don’t know the developer, you can crawl back under the rock you came from, because they’re […]


Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria


Square-Enix seem to be the only ones still developing exclusive PS2-only games, and those are RPGs. We can’t blame them for delivering quality each time but it does make Sony’s previous gen system look like a cheap RPG bomb. Newest in Europe is Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria. Does this offer the quality we’re used to […]


The Witcher


Some time ago it all sounded like “Overlord is one of the best Action-RPG’s ever”. Well, it seems like the lord of darkness has met his match! The Witcher, a game by Polish developer CDProjekt, is some kind of mix between Diablo and a bunch of new RPG elements. One of the major improvements is […]
