REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

In No More Heroes you assume the role of Travis Touchdown, some anime style guy living in a motel, and he just happens to be the top 11th assassin in the world. When he wins a beam katana (make any connections there to anything else?) in an online auction he takes a vow to become the best assassin in the world by killing the 10 other assassins in front of him. While the story line is interesting, the action is funner than hell (for the first three missions at least).     you swing your sword by pressing the A button and when an enemy's health runs low you need to swing the wiimote in the direction an arrow on the screen points. If you pull it off, which you always will, you will be rewarded with a juicy decapitation or impalement.  But in between the tasty battle sequences you have the long, boring job missions that you complete in order to get enough money to get back to the good stuff. You will also notice the weird graphics that make everything look game-cubyish. So if the action wasn't so satisfying this game would be an easy                                                                                  D. 
                                        +awesome  action    
                                        +cool story
                                        + good humor         
                                         - bad motorcycle controls
                                         - odd graphics
                                         - boring side missions
                                         - some environments look the same
