Space Tunnel Atari 2600 Review

This game is absolute garbage.  Number one, you barely have any movement.  Number two, it is not even challenging.  Number three, it is so repetitive that you can literally sleep will playing it.  The only good thing about the game is that you can fire in four directions. It is borderline unplayable.  Overall, I give it a 1 out of 10 stars.  It is just horrible, especially for a shoot em up.

Times Of Lore NES Review


This is supposed to be an RPG, however I found no way of leveling up while playing it.  The game is terrible.  It is slow, repetitive and hard to control.  The game play is horrible, borderline unplayable.  The game reminds me of a slower, easier, Hydlide.  You have to bring a menu up to talk to people and to pick things up.  The path from town to town is linear so there is no exploring.  Graphics and music are both sub par for the NES.  Overall, I give this game a 2 out of 10.  Horrible, don't even bother with it.

Robowarrior NES Review


This game is almost identical to Bomberman.  I am not a big fan of either.  This type of top down puzzle action game is not really one of my favorites.  The game play is tedious and not very fun in my opinion.  Boring, boring, boring.  Simply put, I don't like this game at all.  I give it 2 out of 10 stars.  The only thing that is remotely good about it is there is a huge amount of power ups.  

Final Fantasy VIII PS1 Review


Released in 1998 on the PlayStation.  A lot of people dislike this second installment on the PS1.  I don't dislike the game, but it is not one of my favorites either.  The story line in this game is pretty good and the CG animations are awesome for the time.  The characters are alright, nothing special.  Game play is pretty decent, and the battle mode is turn based like all the Final Fantasy games up to this point.  The game is kind of weird though because you mainly use physical attacks in the random battles but rely heavily on Guardian Forces for boss battles.  Boss battles are really easy because of this.  Guardian Forces are summoned and come out and do heavy damage to enemies.  Another strange thing about this game is that you have to use a draw command to draw magic out of enemies, stocking it, and junctioning it to your character.  A lot of elements of this game turn people off due to the tediousness of playing.  That is the beauty of Final Fantasy games though right?  Every game has something different and new to do.  The music and CG animation in this game is extraordinary and the game play is good.  As you get towards the end of the game on the 4th disc, it just seems to wear at you and never end.  Overall, I give the game 7 out of 10 stars.  If you are a RPG gamer, you definitely have to play through it at least once.
