Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. This game takes place shortly after the events of its prequel, Epic Mickey. Unlike Epic Mickey, this game features co-op action where player 1 plays as Mickey Mouse and player 2 plays as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

 

In this game, Mickey returns to Wasteland (a realm where forgotten toons reside) only to find it has become inert (due to the damage caused by the quake) as well as finding that the Mad Doctor has turned over a new leaf (which is in fact an act of deception for a much grander, evil scheme). As such, both Mickey and Oswald work together to save Wasteland and Stop the Mad Doctor. The game has two endings (the game’s ending  as well as the fate of the Mad Doctor depends on your actions in the game).

 

The main protagonists in this game are Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Ortensia and Gus the Gremlin. The main antagonists in this game are the Mad Doctor and Prescott the Gremlin.

 

The multiple versions of Pete we see in this game are Big Bad Pete, Pete Pan (Adventureland version of Pete), Petetronic (Tomorrowland version of Pete) and Small Pete (It’s A Small World version of Pete).

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be both magically heartwarming and spiritually, wonderfully amazing. Truly, this is a one of a kind Disney game that has touched and forever will touch the hearts of children throughout the ages.

The cast of playable characters in this game are Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapons: Dagger/Elven Blade-Sting/Stones/Mithril Shirt/The One Ring), Aragorn (Human)(Weapons: LongSword/Sword of Kings-Anduril the Flame of the West) and Gandalf (Wizard)(Weapons: Elven Blade-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic-Fire Blast, Chain Lightning and Heal).

 

The protagonists in this game are Samwise “Sam” Gamgee (Hobbit),

Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck (Hobbit),

Peregrin “Pippin” Took (Hobbit),

Tom Bombadil,

Glorfindel (Elf),

Lord Elrond (Elf),

Arwen (Elf),

Bilbo Baggins (Hobbit),

Boromir (Human),

Legolas (Elf),

Gimli (Dwarf),

Lord Celeborn (Elf) and Lady Galadriel (Elf).

 

The antagonists in this game are The Nazgul “Ring-Wraiths”,

Barrow-Wight,

Wargs,

Trolls,

Orcs,

The Watcher in the Water (Sea Monster),

Gollum,

The Balrog of Morgoth “Durin’s Bane”,

Uruk-Hai and the Fell Beasts.

 

In conclusion, I liked how they based this game on its novel counterpart instead of its movie counterpart. It was truly in fact an incredibly, ingenious/imaginative accomplishment on their part as well as an honorably, utmost praise to J. R. R. Tolkien himself.

Image result for lord of the rings the return of the king game

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the videogame version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.

 

In this game, the LotR characters you play as are Gandalf the White (Wizard)(Weapons: Staff/Sword-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic),

Aragorn (Human)(Weapon: Sword-Anduril the Flame of the West),

Legolas Greenleaf (Elf)(Weapons: Twin Elven Daggers/Bow of the Galadhrim),

Gimli (Dwarf)(Weapon: Double-Headed Axe),

Samwise Gamgee (Hobbit)(Weapon: Westernesse Dagger) and Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapon: Elvish Blade-Sting).


The game’s storyline begins during the Battle of Helm’s Deep with you playing as Gandalf. Afterwards, the game’s storyline splits into three different paths. The 1st path is The Path of the Wizard where you play as Gandalf, the 2nd path is The Path of the King where you play as Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli and the 3rd path is The Path of the Hobbits where you play as Sam and Frodo.

 

The levels in The Path of the Wizard are Isengard where you help the Ents defeat Saruman the White, the Top Wall of Minas Tirith where you aid in Gondor’s defense and Minas Tirith’s Courtyard where you hold the line as you usher civilians to safety.

 

The levels in The Path of the King are The Paths of the Dead which you explore as you seek both the The King of the Dead as well as the Undead Army of Dunharrow, Gondor’s Southern Gate, Pelennor Fields where you aid the Armies of Rohan against the Witch-King of Angmar as well as the Armies of Mordor and Mordor’s Black Gate where you make a final stand against the Dark Forces of Mordor.

 

The levels in The Path of the Hobbit are Osgiliath where you attempt to escape from Faramir and his Ithilian Rangers, Shelob’s Lair where you try to find and rescue Frodo from Shelob the Ungolian Spider, the Fortress of Cirith Ungol where you try to rescue Frodo and Mount Doom where you must both defeat Gollum as well as destroy the One Ring of Doom.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to not only follow it’s movie counterpart in perfect sync, but also make the story concept more action-packed/adventurous/mystically dramatic thus in turn making this a perfect game-related choice “For All Free Peoples”.

Sonic Unleashed (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Unlike other Sonic the Hedgehog games, Sonic will have two forms consisting of his standard form during the daytime and his Werehog form during the nighttime.

 

In this game, Dr. Eggman unleashes an ancient evil known as Dark Gaia which in turn shatters the planet into seven pieces, transforms Sonic the Hedgehog into Sonic the Werehog and renders the seven Chaos Emeralds grey and powerless. In his Werehog form, Sonic’s speed is diminished and yet in turn gains both immense physical strength as well as stretchable limbs. Now Sonic must restore the seven Chaos Emeralds, fix the planet and defeat both Dr. Eggman and Dark Gaia to break the curse of the Werehog placed upon himself.

 

The nine locations you visit in this game are Apotos (based on Greek Mediterranean architecture-Greek island of Chora, Mykonos Greece/Greek city of Santorini),

Spagonia (based on western European architecture-Italian city of Siena),

Mazuri (based on Africa),

Holoska (based on Alaska),

Chun-nan (based on China’s architecture),

Shamar (based on a Middle Eastern desert-Petra, Jordan),

Empire City (based on New York City),

Adabat (based on Angkor, Maldivian, and Southeastern Asia),

Eggmanland and the Planet’s Core.

 

The cast of characters are Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic the Werehog/Super Sonic,

Miles “Tails” Prower,

Amy Rose,

Dr. Eggman,

Professor Pickle,

Dark Gaia and Chip/Light Gaia.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to showcase the eternal conflict between light and darkness that takes place in the world as well in each and every one of us. But as long as we all stay true to ourselves, the light in us will illuminate our lives and the darkness in us will be in turn suppressed forevermore.

In this game, Sonic & Tails team-up with their past selves to rescue their kidnapped friends, defeat both Dr. Robotnik and Dr. Eggman (Dr. Robotnik’s future self) as well as prevent an evil entity known as a Time Eater from erasing all of history.

In conclusion, I found this game to showcase Sonic’s greatest, most historic hits as well as completely live up to its 20th anniversary declaration thus we should in fact feel the need, the need for “Sonic Speed”.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview Star Wars-Jedi: Fallen Order for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

 

The story setting for this game takes place a few years after the events of Star Wars-Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. In this game, you play as a surviving Jedi Padawan named Cal Kestis.

 

The protagonists in this game are Cal Kestis (Main Protagonist)(Jedi Padawan),

BD-1 (Protagonist)(Cal’s faithful Droid companion) and Cere Junda (Protagonist)(a former Jedi Knight and Cal’s mentor).

 

The antagonists in this game are the 2nd Sister and the 9th Sisters (Main Antagonists)(Inquisitors “Force-wielders personally trained by Darth Vader and tasked with hunting down/exterminating any and all surviving Jedi).

 

In conclusion, I believe that this new game will be a Rancor-sized hit with Star Wars fans in turn causing the game’s popularity to soar as high as a Death Star in high-orbit. “May the Force be with us.

Medievil 1 & 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review both Medievil 1 and Medievil II for the PlayStation 1. Medievil 1 was first released on October 21, 1998 and Medievil II was first released on April 30, 2000.

Image result for medievil II

In Medievil 1, The evil sorcerer, Zarok resurfaces in the year 1386 and casts a spell that plunges the entire Kingdom of Gallowmere into an Eternal Night.

Thus, allowing Zarok to steal the souls of the living as well as raise his undead army.

An unintended side-effect of Zarok’s Spell though is that it also revives the heroic champion of Gallowmere, Sir Daniel Fortesque thus allowing him a second chance to finally and successfully defeat Zarok once and for all and finally earn his place as a true hero.

 

Medievil II takes place in Victorian London circa 1886. In this game, An evil warlock named Lord Palethorn rediscovers Zarok’s spellbook and recasts the spell Zarok used to reanimate the dead which as before also revives Sir Daniel Fortesque who must now stop Lord Palethorn from reclaiming the pages from Zarok’s spellbook that went missing.

 

The locations in Medievil II are the Museum, Kensington, Greenwich Observatory, Kew Gardens, Wulfrum Hall, Whitechapel and Cathedral Spires.

 

The cast of characters are Sir Daniel Fortesque (Main Protagonist)(Medievil 1 Weapons: Small Sword/Magic Sword, Throwing Daggers, Crossbow, Longbow/Flaming Longbow/Magic Longbow, Spear, Club, and Axe)(Medievil II Weapons: Small Sword/BroadSword, Flaming Crossbow, Pistol, Bombs, Hammer, Cane Stick and Gatling Gun),

Zarok (Medievil 1’s Main Antagonist/Evil Sorcerer)(Weapon: Magic)

Lord PaleThorn (Medievil 2’s Main Antagonist/Evil Warlock)(Weapon: Magic),

Professor Hamilton Kift (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Magician, Inventor and Master of the Occult),

Princess Kiya (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Mummy and Sir Daniel Fortesque’s future love interest),

The Count (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Vampire)(Location: Wulfrum Hall) and Jack the Ripper (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Demon)(Location: Whitechapel).

 

In conclusion, I found Medievil 1 & 2 to be one of the best Pulse-Pounding, Heart-Racing, Senses-Shattering and Horror-Themed game series to ever be released.
