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.

Saints Row 2 is almost like GTA: San Andreas. This game has a good storyline and fun activities you can do. This game take place after the first Saints Row game. Ultor’s take over Stillwater and the third street saints were broken. It you job to bring back the saints and take over Stillwater again. Whats different about this game is you need to do some activities before you do the next mission. That is different for me. When I was playing 3 & 4, I do the main mission and do the activities later, but Saints Row 2 is different than 3 & 4 is. Some gamers think Saints Row 2 is better than 3 & 4.

Halo Reach

Overall:★★★★★ 

Halo: Reach is one best Halo games that I have ever played in the series. This game has more action, more things you can do, more fun than COD series, and has a map editor. How cool is that? This was Bungee’s last Halo game that they made before 343 Industries took over the series. This game take place shortly before first halo game. The game begins with the planet Reach in the ruins, then flashes back to before the devastating invasion by the Covenant. When play this game, you will see Cortana as ancient artifact AI. I thought Cortana was made by humans, but she is an ancient. The graphics in this game are outstanding. They look more like a CGI movie. If this was movie, this will be great movie. The gameplay is more fun as well. The gameplay runs more smooth, but still lag every once from now. The soundtrack is really good. I sound like the same people who did Final Fantasy music. When I’m playing the game it does sounded like Final Fantasy. I would be cool if Square Enix did Halo. It would look like Final Fantasy XIII, the character would more like anime, and Cortana will look more like Yuna or Tifa. Now for the multiplayer. The multiplayer is really intense.

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is worst Elder Scrolls game that I ever played. This is one of their older games. This one is a year later after FF7 came out and FF7 totally blows off this peace of crap. I played this game about 2 hours and I was done. I can’t play it, because it looks really bad. This one is way worse than Saints Row 2 on PC. This game has bad frame rate, terrible gameplay, poorly looking graphics, bad voice actors, and DOS port.

Back in 98, everything went to Windows instead of DOS. I don’t why Bethesda put this on DOS. They should put on Windows because the game will probably run a lot better. The soundtrack is pretty good. It sound like a PSone or N64 game. The story is actually is pretty good. This game set before Oblivion and Skyrim. This game about this Redguard named Cyrus who is looking for his sister. The landscape in this game is Prince of Persia meets Pirates of the Caribbean. The story is pretty good, but this game should need to work on it little bit more.

Shadow of the Colossus is fun game and really hard. This game is one of the best games of 2005 and the best PS2 game of all time. When I was playing this, I had so many problems with the controls, but I got used to it. The controls are more of a pain than in Tomb Raider. I’m talking about the Tomb Raider from 1996, not one came out in 2013.

Shadow of the Colossus is an amazing game. It has good storyline, graphics that you will never think to be seen on the PS2, and really challenging gameplay. This game beats the Legend of Zelda series. The game is about a young man named Wander who wants to bring back his lover back to life. She is in a sleeping curse. So, he must kill these colossi so she can bring back to the land of the living. When I played this game, the story is like Sleeping Beauty meets giant monsters. The graphics looks so damned good!
