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.

Mega Man: Legends(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Mega Man: Legends for the PlayStation 1. The story timeline in this game takes place around 80XX which is sixty thousand years after the events of the classic Mega Man game series. Around that time, the world was mostly covered in water, save for several islands as well as some ancient ruins that are located either in the ocean or on the islands themselves.

 

The story setting in this game takes place on Kattelox Island. The locations on Kattelox Island that you visit are Kattelox City’s Cardon Forest/Market Street/Junk Shop(South), DownTown/Library(Central), UpTown/Museum/TV Studio/Hospital/Boat House/Lake Jyun(West), Old City/Main Gate ruins(East) and Clozer Woods/Bank/Police Station/City Hall(North).

 

The main protagonists are MegaMan Volnutt (Main Hero)(Digger: adventurers that explore ancient ruins), Roll Caskett (Engineer)(Spotter: an adventurer’s assistant who alerts said Diggers to oncoming dangers), Barrel Caskett (Roll’s grandfather)(Veteran Digger) and Data (a Robotic Monkey/MegaMan’s faithful companion).

 

The main antagonists are MegaMan Juno (MegaMan’s evil twin) as well as a family of pirates called the Bonnes which consist of Tron Bonne (Engineer), Teisel Bonne (Leader)(Tron’s big brother), Bon Bonne (a mechanized infant)(Tron’s little brother) and the Servbots (41 indestructible midget robots created by Tron Bonne).

 

The vehicles used by the protagonists in this game are comprised of an explorer’s van, an explorer’s boat and the Flutter (MegaMan’s personal AirShip).

 

The vehicles used by the Bonnes in this game are comprised of Ferdinand (Tron’s OctoRobot), MarlWolf (Teisel’s ultimate digging machine), Balkon Gerat (the Bonne’s mechanized Sea Serpent), Theodore Bruno (the Bonne’s mechanized Giant), Focke-Wulf (the Bonne’s mechanized Dragon) and the Gesellschaft (the Bonne’s Personal WarShip).

 

In conclusion, I found this MegaMan game to be one of the most highly challenging RPGs in the entire history of MegaMan.

Sony PlayStation

My name is Dallas I am going to talk about the Sony PlayStation which has got the controller, console, and memory card. The controller is gray and it has buttons on it which controls the characters in the game. The console has the reset, power, and open buttons and I plug the controller in the console so I can play it. I plug the memory card on the console so I can save my games so I can play where I left off. My favorite games are Resident Evil, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Army Men, and Disney games.
