|Taking the standard conventions of a Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game--such as character creation, monster combat, special abilities, and spells--and combining them with a persistent and always changing online virtual world, Sony Interactive's EverQuest creates an experience like no single-player personal computer game. In fact, EverQuest features no solo or story-oriented game; EverQuest requires, and certainly encourages, interaction with the tens of thousands of other players online. (As an online-only game, EverQuest requires the use of your Internet connection.) Check out the others in this series.|
|Everything that made the original Diablo great--nonstop action, wicked monsters, dark Gothic atmosphere, and fantastic magic items--has returned. But new enhancements such as the class skill system and cheater-proof multiplayer competition make Diablo 2 even better than the original. See others in the Series.|
|Pool of Radiance has been developed in close association with Wizards of the Coast (WotC), publishers of Dungeons and Dragons. The artists for the tabletop game have created a unified look for the product, and the art for the computer game has been informed by that unifying vision. The characters and monsters in particular animate the concepts presented in the Third Edition books. In addition, the artistic designers of Pool sought to bring the magic of the world more to the fore by creating dazzling 3D spell effects for the spells cast in the game. |
|The point of the game is to shepherd your fledgling civilization to world domination, using war, trade, and exploration. You start with the bare minimum to get going, and you've got to balance your people's needs with your desire to be a little Napoleon. The Age of Kings gives you a ton of new units and technologies to enrich your strategic options. Each scenario is placed accurately within history, but you're also free to create your own.

Online: This is the newest installment of one of the most
popular computer role playing games of all time. |
Nights: One of the latest and best games to come out with
the Dungeon's and Dragon's logo. |
III: This is the latest in the Warcraft series. Here, you
have the choice of 4 races and can play campaigns, custom games, or on Battle.net. |
of Fire IV: This is the fourth installment of the Breath of
Fire series. I also suggest players get Breath
of Fire III. Those familiar with the series will love these
games, those who aren't will become addicts quickly.
Fantasy VII: Not the latest in the Final Fantasy line but
arguably the greatest.
Cross: Those familiar with "Chrono Trigger"
will find this game a worthy sequel to one of the greatest RPGs of all
Fantasy Chronicles: This anthology has two great games from
before CDs were used for game systems. Both Final Fantasy II and
Chrono Trigger are wonderful examples of Role Playing Games. Even by
today's standards, these games are good.
Legends: Not a traditional RPG but still worth your
attention. You will waste hours playing this game in mindless
carnage, just what you need to unwind from a stressful day.
I'm not even going to try to describe this one, just get it and
play. You will not regret it.
Gladius: Great game. Very addictive and it has enough
diversity and customization to keep you going back to play yet again... and
again.. and again.
|Okay, I'll be brutally honest here. I don't
own a playstation2. I've heard good things about all the games that
my friends have bought/played but I don't have much experience with
them. Most of their games are beautifully rendered and if you look
for Squaresoft titles, you can't go wrong.
