it was just another plane ol Final Fantasy.
I'm not too fond of it either, but you can't say it was "just another FF". Yeah, same story direction, that stayed the same. Pretty much everything else about it has changed, and for the better, I think.

For one thing, it's not boring.

the Wii one?
or are we talking Shadow the hedgehog?
I thought the Wii one looked pretty good... but Sega does, indeed, have a recent history of spending about 20 seconds on controls before boxing it up.

i've gota disagree with Drakonis and partialy agree with who I can only asume is Magicman.

I find FFXII trumps anything else out there so far... the voice acting is spot on, the character development really makes me feel for some of the characters at key points in the game and their story-telling capabilities  have evolved quite beautifuly from what they used to do (see prior ff6... crystals.. so many crystals...)
and then all that jazz aside, the battle system feels a lot more fluent instead of so "ok.. battle.. ok.. stop... ok.. another battle..."
now the battles feel constant, without loading time in between each, since you're technicaly in 1 big one the moment you step out of town.

The Ninja Turtles review was incredibly funny. Okay so one game that comes to mind is Star Wars Demolition. I bought it for DC a long time ago and it sucked ass. It was basically a rip off of Twisted Metal and Vigilante 8. Also pretty much any Sonic game after SA2 for DC. Sega's destroying their mascot. :(

More to come when I think of them. :P

Another: Rengoku for PSP.

Now, Rengoku 2 is an amazing piece of work, one of the few things I actually really really like.

Rengoku 1 is shit. Unplayable. horrible controls, horrible graphics, bad level design, not enough items... it's really awesome how they managed to improve Rengoku 2 so much.

Doubtful.  :P

That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.
