A Word from the Webmaster (September 26, 2003)

Summer is over, and the Fall rush of great games has begun. There are a lot of stellar titles just recently released, and many more in the works. There's the 3D update to everyone's favorite vampire saga in Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, there's the sudden renewed interest in ninja games (I-Ninja, Ninja Gaiden, and the sequel to Shinobi), and there are updates to classic franchises like Mario Kart, 1080, and even Prince of Persia. Not only that, but there are some new franchises like Beyond Good & Evil and Manhunt that are just itching to bust out. The problem now isn't finding a great game, it's deciding which to buy. Check back here for help with that, and be sure to submit your own reviews, too! more

Staff Reviews

Soul Calibur II (GameCube) by Jason Venter
Rather than force you to face nine million matches to unlock all the hidden characters and their alternate weapons, Namco went the story-based route. When you first begin this mode, you appear on a map and get to read some text. This leads to a battle with an opponent, where you'll quickly learn the basic moves that make up a typical fight. From there, you advance onto the next area, where there's more story to read and an excuse for another fight. more...

Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox) by Dirk Nowitzki
Otogi is really in a league of it’s own on Xbox. The closest game to it is probably Panzer Dragoon Orta, not because the action is similar but because both games deliver such a unique audio/visual impact backed with challenging, addicting gameplay. more...

Soul Calibur II (Playstation 2) by Jason Venter
When playing in Extra Arcade, you can change what weapons your characters use in battle, provided you have obtained new ones. This can greatly affect how balanced a fighter your character is. Tamil can find a weapon, for example, that lets her take out anyone almost without effort, or she can pick a different weapon that has some attributes that are great and some that are a disaster. It's amazing how many ways Namco found to keep gamers playing. more...
