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.

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?

The Graphics are amazing. The in car view shows various artifacts on the Windows, because a window is hardly ever perfectly clean.
The Cities look amazing, and for the first time the Spectators are full 3D and alive. I'm a big fan of the GranTurismo Series from the other Console. This Game may not have the depth of a game like that, but it is meant to be more of an arcade Racer.
The GothamTV Feature is cool. You can watch other racers competing online, which is great for picking up driving tips on various courses.
You can Race online, and if your good, you can end up being broadcasted live on GothamTV.
Talk about putting on the Pressure...

The AI Drivers are quite good. They will remember if you put them into a wall and seek their revenge.
The Replays are exellent. Several Views are available to chose from. You can save them as well.
Unless you bought the Core System, in which case Damn you, I am tired of telling my games to where to save.
The hard drive is there, there is no memory unit, where do you think I want to save Mr Gates.

The Sound is pretty awesome.
Damage Modeling is limited, but there are nice touches to it, like your side rear view mirrors getting cracked up progressively.
Oh Yeah... All three Mirrors reflect in Realtime. Oh Yeah Baby.
There is nothing I can complain about with this game, other than the fact that I need a wheel so I can really experience it. Why no Wheel at Launch? Come on, I only spent $400 on the system, $220 on games, $200 on extra Controllers and such. Where B My Wheel.
See ya on the Streets...
