Reservoir Dogs (PS2) –

  • Great addition to the story – extra info not seen in the movie –
  • The “control” of the police is a nice touch
  • Having 2 paths – psychopath and professional gives a tiny bit of replayability
  • The visuals are dated and look old
  • The driving portions are terrible
  • The action portions aren’t that great – trys to add stealth elements but fails
  • The soundtrack is the awesome “K-Billy super sounds of the 70’s”
  • Voice actors seems like they are trying to be the original actor and not the character.
  • Cutscene’s are CG’d scenes from the movie, mostly edited both for time and content.
  • This would make a great extra disk in the 15th anniversary edition (which is advertised in the instruction book) but not much more.

Final Fantasy XII – PS2

  • Much better than I expected, based on what I saw in the preview from Dragon Quest VIII
  • Story is fantastic! Fully imersive, great cut scenes, everythign done right.
  • The sound is stellar as always, VO is top notch
  • Graphics look dated. It’s an old console now and it shows. I’d love to see a version of this for XB360 or the PS3… won’t happen.
  • Colour palette is muted and everything kind of blends together.
  • The combat is the thing… It’s good, very reminisent of a MMO, but I miss the old style of fighting.
  • The extra that come with the collector’s edition are nice, but not… OMG I can’t lve without nice.

Download of the week

  • New “Nail The Trick” mode is awesome.
