Soul Hackers 3DS Review

The Shin Megami Tensei series didn’t pick up much popularity in the UK during the 90’s, and it wasn’t until the persona series came out that the franchise grew its passionate fan base. This meant that games such as Soul Hackers flew right over people’s heads. But now, thanks to the re-release on the 3DS, players young and old can experience one of the games that defined the franchise.

Think back to the days of old, when Final Fantasy was the most ambitious and well crafted RPG of the generation. Those games were incredible.  Well Bravely Default has appeared to take us back to that time and show us just why RPG’s are so magical.

Fire Emblem Awakening review

fe-awakening

The Fire Emblem series has never been big in the west, often being overshadowed by other titles. The series has always kept a small but dedicated audience, but left everyone else behind. Fire Emblem Awakening hopes to fix this by being the most fine-tuned Fire Emblem game to date. And as it stands, Fire Emblem Awakening might be one of the best RPG’s in recent years.  

LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Review

220px-Lego_Lord_of_the_Rings_cover
Anyone who is a fan of the LEGO video games knows they are a decent puzzle plat-former. The games are aimed towards the younger generations, targeting children to young teens. Built around this premise, the objectives are straight forward and easily highlighted. The games are put together well, the controls handle nicely for the most part, and the formula stays pretty consistent throughout the games. Unfortunately, that consistency is what is slowly killing the franchise. With practically no innovation, the games are becoming a stale repetition with a setting and character roster change. The games may be advertised for kids, but there are a large amount of casual players that make up those sales figures. Eventually, the continuous use of that mediocre formula will simply cause the games to flop, and the time will come when relying on the low expectations of the consumer will be the end of the LEGO series.
