Dead or Alive 4

Fun Factor:★★★★★ 

Dead or Alive 4 for the XBOX 360 was a great game when it was first out. You got more time to play the game instead buying DLC’s, but in this game there are no DLC’s at all. You have to work hard to unlock some of the characters, all of the outfits, and getting the endings.

This game was one best fighting of the games of all time and it was more challenging than other fighting games out there. I had a hard time unlocking characters and there outfits, and which I am still trying to do. I have already unlocked the characters, but trying to get their outfits. This game has 6 modes. Story Mode, Versus, Team Battle, Time Attack, Survival, and Online. I never played online on this and I don’t think it is available any more.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku

Fun Factor:★☆☆☆☆ 

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku is an okay game, but this game is not all that fun. This is first American DBZ game that they made. This game is like SNES version of Dark Alliance, because it is only for the Game Boy. You have your health bar on the top left corner of the screen and the gameplay almost runs like Dark Alliance.

You can fly in this game, but you have a limited number of times you can fly. Which that is really stupid! When you play the game, you will see that game isn’t like TV show. The developers took bits and pieces from the show, and put it in the game. In the game, you see photos from the show and 2 short video clips. This game basically on season 1-3. So, pretty much from the Saiyans and Freiza saga. The graphics in this game are ok, but I have seen better graphics on Game Boy. The quests in this game are really boring. You save children and animals to bring back to their parents and pick up objects to bring back to the right owner. The music is sound pretty good. It remind me of the track from the old Square Enix games that were on the SNES. That is the only good thing about this game.

Onimusha: Warlords

Fun Factor:★★★★☆ 

Onimusha: Warlords is kind of like one older Resident Evil game, but not. This game is set in feudal Japan, not in a mansion and you’re killing demons instead of zombies. This game has a good storyline. The story is about a samurai named Samanosuke. He kills demons to save his girlfriend, Princess Yuki. He has to kill demons so he can save her from Nobunaga.

Nobunaga is the leader of the demons. He gets help from a female ninja named Kaede. She looks your average ninja and she has tattoo on her leg. So, it like Kurosawa meets Legend of Zelda. It sounded like more Legend of Zelda when I was playing the game. The gameplay runs like Resident Evil. I had trouble with the controls. The controls are little bit easy, but not movement. To move your character, you have to use the D-pads instead of Analog stick. The analog stick is good for bow and gun. The graphics looks more like Resident Evil than PS2 graphics, but characters looks more like a normal PS2 game. The characters looks more detailed and look a little bit real.

WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania

Fun Factor:★★★☆☆ 

WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania is alot different than today’s wrestling. It is been a long time since I played a wrestling game. This game has all 40 WWE legends are on this game. Those are from late 80’s & early 90’s. Some of the these wrestlers in this game are still alive and some have passed on.

This game doesn’t have a storyline like Smackdown! Vs. Raw did. This game has Exhibition, Game Modes, and Create Modes, not Career Mode. Exhibition has the same matches in Smackdown! Vs. Raw does. You can import characters form WWE: Smackdown! Vs. Raw 2009 on WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania. The gameplay does run like same as Smackdown! Vs Raw but, the controls are different. In this game, you are pressing buttons. How boring is that is. Sometimes it hard to get weapon out of the ring.

Ninja Gaiden 3

ninja gaiden 3
Fun Factor:★★☆☆☆ 

Well, I just already played Ninja Gaiden 3 and one thing I’m going to say about this game. WTF is this? The last Ninja Gaiden game was great, but this game horrible. The storyline is awful, the graphics look low-rez, and this game is too easy and too short. The storyline is about Hayabusa helping JSDF to save the world, but there one problem. He has to save the world in seven days. If he doe not, he will die. The reason why Hayabusa is dying is because the dragon sword is in his arm. It is killing him slowly. This wasn’t a creation of Tomonobu Itagaki. If it was, this game would been a better game. This one was done by Masato Kato. Is he trying to kill the series?
