Review: Final Fantasy XI - PC

Title: Final Fantasy XI
Platform: PC
Author: Milkdud
Final Fantasy XI is not good, and while I miss the experience, I've decided that MMOs are not good either. I enjoyed many things I did and many of the people I met, but in the end, an MMO is only a glorified chat room that costs you $13 a month.

Review: Oddworld Stranger's Wrath - Xbox

Title: Oddworld Stranger's Wrath
Platform: Xbox
Author: Ed Zitron
"Short" is in the eye of the beholder; the game will at the very least give you 10 hours of rootin'-tootin'-shootin'-jumpin' action, with a fair dosage of swearing to boot.

Review: Phantom Brave - PS2

Title: Phantom Brave
Platform: PS2
Author: Pickle
Phantom Brave is a definite buy, a Snackbar Favorite, and one of my favorite games of all time. Pick it up and save it. People will be talking about it for a long time to come.

Review: Fighting Evolution - PS2

Title: Fighting Evolution
Platform: PS2
Author: EtDragon
It's really quite disappointing that something with so much potential turned out so poorly. I was so excited about this title when it was first announced, but the whole thing turned out to be quite a letdown.

Once I learned how to play the game, I really enjoyed it. Even if it takes you a few controllers to get used to playing it, you should definitely give it a try.

Review: Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 - Xbox

Title: Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30
Platform: Xbox
Author: Pretzel
I would say that Brothers in Arms is the number one FPS of 2005 so far. My suggestion is not to rent this game or borrow it from a friend, but buy this game. This game will have you at the edge of your seat the entire time.

If you're looking for a friendly squad-based shoot'em up FPS, this will definitely be your game.
