Reviews: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, World Destruction

By Heath | July 15, 2009 at 10:39 am

At first I thought about writing dickish half-previews of these games that don’t tell you anything, but then I was like, “What the hell, it’s only once in a lifetime we get to JOG AT THE MOON,” then  finished them to write these reviews. I live to serve, kids. Remember that.

*World Destruction (to be named Sands of Destruction in America) import review.
*Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (to have the same retarded name in America) import review.

Black Sigil divides RPG Land reviewers

By Heath | July 12, 2009 at 10:35 am

Tim Olsen and Joseph Wartick have finished Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled and written up their thoughts. The two men seem to disagree with each other. Nerdfight? …Nah, we’re far too lazy.

Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard, reviewed

By Michael | June 25, 2009 at 12:24 pm

Guest reviewer, Timothy Olsen recently reviewed Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard for RPG Land. Here is the results.

For those who fondly remember the days of yore when the only story one needed in a game was the hook “Your party meets at a tavern,” this game delivers a truly wondrous dungeon crawl. For those expected a story to be told and characters to identify with, not even this game’s musical score will save the player from the unholy amount of tedium and pain they will face. The chance to overcome this game’s dungeon is the only reward Etrian Odyssey II offers, so players should judge their tastes before making a purchase.

Eternal Eden review

By Michael | June 17, 2009 at 9:29 am

RPG Land’s latest review is the new Indie RPG Maker game: Eternal Eden.

Eternal Eden is limited by the tools used to create it. As it stands, it’s a good game that definitely deserves a look, but it could have been so much more. The best way to describe Eternal Eden is to call it a game that is simple, carefree fun.

Super Robot Taisen Original Generations Saga: Endless Frontier review

By Joseph | June 8, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Super Robot Taisen Original Generations Saga: Endless Frontier Long title, boring game.

SRTOGS:EF is a game of “if only’s” and “could have beens”. If only they had made a story that made sense, if only the battle system showed greater depth, if only they’d attempted to do anything interesting with the graphics, the game could have at least been average. As is, however, it hovers at below average. It’s a game that, to RPG fans, will feel very “ho-hum.” It’s not bad enough to hate, not good enough to like.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood review

By Michael | June 5, 2009 at 12:50 am

Hopefully better late than never, check out RPGLand’s review of Sonic Chronicles The Dark Brotherhood.

Ultimately Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood falls into the category of “games that didn’t need to be made.” This reviewer really wanted to like this game, and there is some enjoyment to be had here, but overall it’s a shallow, slow experience.

Tough to put one final word on Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. So I wrote one for everybody: one that’s nothing but love, one that’s nothing but hate, and one that’s somewhere in the territory of an honest review. Here they are.
