Final Fantasy IX has undoubtedly gone back to the roots of the title that have always been appealing characters, a great story with engaging battles, and an impressive gameplay presentation. Final Fantasy VII was a great RPG game on its own that boosted the market for Final Fantasy VIII, but Final Fantasy VII is definitely a game that turned to its roots.
Medal of Honor is a title that DreamWorks has revitalized from the ground up and introduced something new and exciting into the realm of first person shooters. A first person shooter with a storyline is amazing, even if it is widely distributed, and not to mention this is the first decent shooting title a console has yet to see since GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64 platform. The only thing that is disappointing about this title is the incapability of its mission structure. It forces you to do necessary things than feel the heat of the battle, and while you get a feel for the battlefield – it is not all there.
Capcom’s Resident Evil is back, with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and it is quite possibly the scariest game we have ever played. Ever.
Final Fantasy VII was an excellent title and matching something that sets a high bar in terms of storyline is difficult to accomplish. Final Fantasy VIII’s release has been undoubtedly anxiety ridden and filled with some doubt whether it would it be a return to the series’ roots or something different. After everything, SquareSoft has supremely impressed and understood how to get rid of design flaws and much more. Final Fantasy VIII is a masterpiece.
Resident Evil, our highly revered franchise of horror and thrills is back again with more acerbic violencne to satiate our devious and knaving pleasures. Resident Evil 2 is simply a cinematic experience than a video game. After the events of the first game, RE2 sees the entire town of Raccoon City hit with the devastating virus that is now filled with zombies at every street corner. Leon Kennedy, and Claire Redfield, sister of Chris Redfield from the first Resident Evil, have to save themselves from the crapshoot and any survivors. It is a tough battle to get out and escape, one that Capcom makes all too clear.
Allow me to begin by stating that everyone who likes RPG should buy this title. Never before have I seen technology, playability, and storyling combined as well as in Final Fantasy VII into a beautiful work. Square Soft’s effort results in a game that enriches and entertains despite occasional design problems that can be very distracting when compared to the greatness of the rest of the work in every other category.
