WARNING! I don't really play video games though I have a Bachelor's Degree in Game Art and Design from the Art Institute of Portland. I am a Texture and Lighting Artist so what I will be mostly Reviewing the lighting and Textures. I also will talk about character design, story, and some game play though most of my Reviews will be from watching walk throughs rather then playing. I do play some rather nice games that friends have lent me and some games online so I will say if I did ever play them. If you have played any of the games, I would love to see your reviews about them. I will be listing them out more by game systems rather then alphabetical unlike my other reviews so you can find the game system you have.

Guild Wars: Prophecies (2005)
3D Fantasy Role-Playing Games, CORPG, Player Vs Player, Action RPG, Online,
Players: Multiplayers

CONSOLE: Windows

Played: YES

My thoughts: A really fun game! The textures are beautiful and stunning. The lighting is pretty good, though sometimes its hard to see one or two area's in the darker parts. Characters are beautiful and well detailed. Each character you can play has different magic that they can use, and you can pick two types of classes. Sadly, they only let you be a human, unlike WOW which you can be other creatures but at least this one is a pay once game. You get 4 character slots, so you can have up to 4 save points within the game, one for each character. You can't save and then go back if you do something wrong. My Character does get stuck sometimes on the rocks and trees and its hard to move around once in a while since you can only jump once. There are very few cut scenes, mostly you can run around and talk to people, do quests, talk to people on line, and do all the things you normally can do in RPG Online games. Sometimes mine lagged a little because of how many spells were being used but that's more for the fighting stance. I do somewhat like the fact that your alone in the sandbox if you aren't in a party. It saves you from having problems if there are two many people on screen but in the towns, I had to switch once in a while because again I was freezing.

Guild Wars - Eye of the North Expansion (2007)
3D Fantasy Role-Playing Games, CORPG, Player Vs Player, Action RPG, Online,
Players: Multiplayers

CONSOLE: Windows

Played: YES

My Thoughts: I actually am happy that I bought the expansion pack. The map I had in the first Guild Wars was a little small to me and I am normally one that likes to explore new areas. With this one, you don't get to have a new link in for it, you just add the code to your account and then play it within your game. The textures are the same as the first one, though there are new monsters in each area and new items I can get. I actually seem to have most of my time exploring the new expansion then going into the old part. The Expansion seems to have much more to do.

American McGee's Alice (2000)
Horror, Action-Adventure, Platform, Gore, Violence,
Players: Single Player

CONSOLE: Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

Played: NO (Walk through)


After Alice’s second time threw the looking glass, her house burned down accidentally, killing everyone but herself. As time goes on, her mind slowly loses touch with reality and is placed within Rutledge Asylum with her only possession, a stuffed rabbit, under the treatment of Dr. Heironymous Wilson. 10 years after being brought to the asylum, she somehow goes back to Wonderland though it has been twisted by her own broken mind. The white Rabbit had summoned her to help and the Cheshire Cat becomes her companion, giving twisted and cryptic comments.


My Thoughts: I like most of the textures in the game, though some are so dark that it’s hard to see. The character designs are stunning with that hint of serial that you normally would want in an acid trip to hell. The story line is a nice twist to the old Alice in Wonderland story, her being mentally ill. It's interesting that the rabbit seems to keep running from her even though she’s there to save Wonderland. The Demon self is also a interesting thing, almost like the star in Mario. What I have seen of the game play, it's pretty much a normal fight game, and acts as such, though I never saw him get stuck anywhere. Lighting needed a lot of work, it seemed to dark to even see where you were going but I liked the whole fun house feeling.

Horror, Action-Adventure, Platform, Gore, Violence,

Bonk's Adventures (1990)
2D Side scrolling Platform Game
Players: Single Player

CONSOLE: TurboGrafx-16, NES, Game Boy, Amiga, Virtual Console, PlayStation Network, Arcade

Played: YES (TurboGrafx-16)


Bonk is a strong cave boy who’s mission is to save Princess Za, a small pink Pleisiosaur, from the evil King Drool, a large, green Tyrannosaurus.


My Thoughts: One of the best that I have played on the TurboGrafx-16. The colors are bright and cheerful and the even though there really isn't much lighting, it being a 2D image, when you are at sunset, it does have a bit of a red tint to the characters. It feels strange that you never see another human, it's always Bonk and the dinos. The bosses are crazy designs and perfect for back in that time. Images are really nice to. Not really pixel-ated that badly.

Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: GameBoy Advanced

Played: NO


Pokemon Sapphire (2003)
Role-Playing Video Game
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: GameBoy Advanced

Played: YES

My Thoughts: Well, its pretty much the same idea as Emerald though I do wish one of these games had every single pokemon. I had problems with this since there were some babies that were not created when they made the game so I was getting eggs that hatched into fully formed Pokemon. It was same for Emerald and I feel its same for every game. I don't think they should make more babies because it just messes some of the games up.

Rating: 6 out of 10


Pokemon Fire Red (2004)
Role-Playing Video Game
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: GameBoy Advanced

Played: NO


Pokemon Leaf Green (2004)
Role-Playing Video Game
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: GameBoy Advanced

Played: YES

My Thoughts: It's fun that the story line is a little different then the others that came out for this console. It actually starts out the same as the older games like Yellow. The difference, is that you get to pick what Pokemon you want and the Pokemon doesn't follow you. I would of liked it a bit better if they did but I do have to say the graphics are much better. These have a crazy amount of color that is not seen in the Gameboy. Sadly, you have to go back and forward before you can start your journey. Game play is just like any other game so it's pretty nice for someone that has always played Pokemon but yet all the games are simple enough for beginners. Instead of starting in littleroot, you start in pallet town and the character for the male looks a lot like Red(Ash) and your rival is pretty much Gary no matter what name you give him. I think a nice change would be that you can chose what gender your rival will be. I personally would like to go against a girl and still be a girl sometime. But it's only a small difference since you don't really see them much.

Rating: 6 out of 10 because it is much like the old games with better graphics.


Pokemon Emerald (2005) Poketto Monsutā Emerarudo Pocket Monsters: Emerald
Role-Playing Video Game
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: GameBoy Advanced

Played: YES


You are a Pokemon trainer, trying to become a master by defeating the Gym Leaders and the Elite Four. Your family has moved to Littleroot in the Hoenn region to be closer to your father who is the gym leader of Petalburg, the next town over. You chose a pokemon first from Professor Birch and your rival will chose a Pokemon that is strongest against your Pokemon type.


My Thoughts: The game is rather nicely done. I had a lot of fun playing it, and actually beat the game in a sense. The only real way to beat the game is to finish everything including the easter-eggs from the company. One of the problems I ended up having was not wanting to restart after having so many pokemon leveled up so much that I didn't want to erase the data. This one, you can get all three of the legendary Pokemon Though it's a pain in the butt like normal. Fighting all of the trainers takes a lot of time so this isn't one of those breeze threw games, its one you can take your time on. It was rather fun for me since I like the turn base action and slow strategic style though I do find a lot of the NP's rather stupid. In some parts, I did have trouble fighting them though because I didn't raise my Pokemon's level right.
Gameplay is simple, you move your character with the control pad and press A for yes and B for no. You also press B and hold it to have running shoes. Problem with this though is that you get them after you are about to start going off on your own, so the first part is rather slow moving.
Another annoying piece is that unlike most of the Pokemon games before this, you have two types of bikes. One can help you get to one part of the map and the other can get you to another. You have to keep going back and forward to the bike shop to switch between the two bikes. It would be nice if there was at least two or three places to get the bikes switched. I did like the addition to the running shoes making it faster for me to get threw the maps when I didn't want to waste time looking for Pokemon.
The Textures are rather nicely done and the colors are bright. they took the time to see that it could be better then the older games. I feel a little strange that your rival seems to have to be the opposite gender, making it feel like there should be a little romance between the two but it never shows. All in All.... I like the game and how it plays.

Rating: About 7 and a half out of 10 stars. It's pretty fun, though it does have it's problems.

Brütal Legend (2009)
Action-Adventure, Real-time Strategy,
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

Played: YES (on PlayStation 3)


You are Eddie Riggs. Eddie is a roadie for a band called 'Kabbage Boy' that isn't really heavy metal. One day, his world is turned upside down when he is transported into a world of rock and heavy metal, where trees are Metal, hard core music is deadly, and the fights are brutal! Instead of trying to get back home, Eddie hooks up with a bunch of fighters who are trying to stop Doviculus from taking over. Eddie is the only one that can understand the titan's and gods language from so long ago, mostly music that cast magic.


My Thoughts: I LOVE IT! I did have some troubles with the hot-rod racing parts because I'm just not into racing games. Some spots on the map actually did get me stuck, such as a couple rocks put in the way and the bus going transparent on me a couple times. Some glitches need to be worked out but the textures were wonderful, capturing the world of Heavy Metal perfectly. One or two bumps needed a bit more work though. Voices were really well done, the voice actors matched what I could see them sounding like. Jack Black does a awesome job as Eddie. The character designs are awesome as well, though I would of liked some of the characters to have a bit more cut scene time so we could see just how nicely they had been created. I like the sandbox play, making it a game that doesn't have just one ark in a sense. There are small side quests and easter-eggs all over the place.
I had a hard time placing this game in one area of game play because its a lot of different things from note matching to racing to Fantasy battles. It really does live up to its name. I have a feeling that most people will find at least one part of this game that they like. You can turn off the gore if your really not into that thing which does help someone who would rather not see it. It's still really hard core violence though. Music was great, they picked good old metal to bang your head to though having the songs loop threw was a little bothersome to me. I wish they had more.

My Thoughts: I like this game like all the Pokemon series. This one has a sweet spot in my heart because it was the very first game that I played as a hand held game and came with my very first Gameboy. The animation is a little low by today's standpoints but the colors are still pretty nicely done. Game play is fun yet simple, and I did have fun trying to figure out how to get to some places. I still haven't gotten to every place. One big problem though is that the battery in the game card actually can run out and I can't seem to find where to go to get a new one around where I live. Again, these games take a lot of time but they are rather fun to play on long car rides.

My Thoughts: The Pixel art looks rather interesting, the gameboy did have limited colors, mostly blue ting to everything to use so they used a lot of little pieces to make the images detailed. It's done well enough that I understand what some things are. It is rather bothersome that you only get a Pikachu to start with. Your Rival is a real jerk. Gameplay is really good, just like the others. It's interesting that Pikachu follows you around and you can see what they think about you but I can't tell always what the pokemon is feeling. The Pokemon look a bit chubby to me.

My Thoughts: Looking at the artwork is amazing. Again, I'm not really happy about the 3D angle that they have for the camera. Surprisingly, the Pokemon actually do follow you around like in Pokemon Yellow. Lyra seems a bit stupid in a sense. The Animation is really nice and can see the people and Pokemon moving around the way they do. The Grass looks like bushes more then normal grass though. It's sad that everything else looks like they are 3D but the images for the battles and the character sheets are 2D. The story line seems to follow more of the Crystal story line so it's pretty much the same thing over and over but a couple new things too.

My Thoughts: It's interesting to me that this started out with a coronation of some king. It draws me into the story but it would of been better if it was not created so still. I would rather of seen it closer to what he normally see in a game, the game characters walking around and a little more info into it. The walkthrough I was able to see was a Fan Translation sadly so words were a little off. The artwork for the characters was actually really fun and lovable. I like that they gave you a new design. It's cool that you have two rivals so that the Pokemon you don't pick is not showing up. Also, you have more times you can level up though the characters personalities are really hard for me to like. Cheren, the boy, is a know it all nerd and Bel is really dense. They may have good reasons to go out but I would really rather never meet them again after the first part. I'm not so sure I like how everything feels 3D and slanted, also the tilt of the camera makes me feel a bit uneasy. The animation is much better though! I found it amazing how different it was from the Gameboy Color and SP. It has come a long way from the still animations. During the fight scenes, I could go without the commentary from the other player though. It just makes the battle drown out even longer then it should.

Super Smash Bros. 3 Brawl (2008)
Fighting, Action, Platformer, Versus Fighting,
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

PLATFORM: Wii

Played: YES

My Thoughts: Most of what I have to say about the game is for the Adventure area Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The Subspace Emissary. The designs of the characters are wonderful and fresh, the artwork in the details of each character are pretty spot on to some of the concept work I have looked at. I would of liked it more if the controls were a little easier, I had to use my controller for the gamecube to actually play, the controls for the Wii seem a little to hard for the game. There are a few small places in the game that I got stuck on, though I was able to wiggle out of it when I had to. It was interesting that I was able to get new characters to use in the main fighting arena while going threw the main story line.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009)
platform,
Players: Multiplayer,

CONSOLE: Wii

Played: NO (Walk Through)


While Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad are busy getting things ready for Peaches birthday, a cake rolls in and Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings pop out of the cake. They throw the cake on Peach and they loaded it onto Bowser’s airship, taking off as the others run after them. The other toads grant them access to Propeller Mushrooms, Penguin Suits, and other fun items that are scattered throughout the world.


My thoughts: The artwork reminds me of a better pixel game. It has the same feeling as the older Mario platforms with the same charms but the artwork is a little better. The colors are much more vibrant and the creatures are fun and designed well. This is the first 4 player platformer in the Mario series and I have to say, it looks pretty fun. You can fight against each other or work as a team to finish the common goal but ether way, it looks like the story still keeps going on no mater which way you play. It opens up a lot of ways for the players to make there own play. The last stage looks to be the hardest to do, with a secret to it. I suggest working together as it will make things much easier in the long run. I like that the credits are a came you can play and compete against your fellow companions.

Mario Party (1998)
Party,
Players: Single Player, Multiplayer

CONSOLE: N64

Played: YES

My Thoughts: The look is rather blotchy, all the colors seem to mash together and sometimes its hard to see green on green. They could of changed the color of the trees and ground a little so the characters could stand out more. It's interesting that each map has a story, making each one have a little different fun to it. The mini games look fun but the problem is that everyone else would just be watching them if its a single player mini game. The idea that you are against each other if your on the same color is fun and makes everyone step on tip toes but then they have to work together if some of them get on the same color. The idea is fun and exciting because you never know what will happen unless you set yourself up to land on a different color space. I like the board game aspect. Game play is fun and pretty simple, they always tell you how to do the mini games.The Animations are really badly done as well, most of the characters look broken when they do some things like Yoshi when doing limbo and Luigi's Dance.

Rating: 5 out of 10 for the textures and Animation.

Super Smash Bros. (1999)
Versus Fighting
Players: single player, multiplayer

CONSOLE: Nintendo 64, iQue Player, Virtual Console

Played: YES

My Thoughts: Where the artwork seems much better then anything that I have seen in Nintendo 64, the characters are very blocky and hard edged. The imaged for their pictures look nicer then the characters models which is to be expected though not as much difference as it is. The stages seem small for how big the characters are and though I can understand partly why it is like that, in of you can see the characters better, the game play is much harder to fight. The characters seem to be thrown off much easier then you would think. Gameplay is pretty much easy to understand, and mostly I could get away with just button mashing, a newbie thing I know but still, 'girl that doesn't play much games' here talking. Some characters seem to be a bit unbalanced, one or two characters seemed so much better then the others. I noticed that Mario and Ness were some of the stronger ones, though it could be more of the person playing. It's pretty hard to know weather the its the characters or the people playing them in games like this. Stages also seemed to be a lot more detailed and nice looking then the characters as well, more textures and gentler edges. Watching and playing all these N64 games makes me wonder and please PM me if anyone knows this but; Did they not have the right programs to make a good bumpmap on any of the games? I just keep watching and playing them, looking at the textures and they all look as flat as window glass.

Rating: 4 out of 10. I love the game play but it was hard for me as a texture artist to see all those textures go to waste.
