6 October 2010
  • Summary: The Sakura Taisen series is considered to be one of, if not THE best, RPG series of all time when it comes to consistent levels of excellence and nothing showcases that aspect more than when Nippon Ichi can take a five year old PS2 game, port it to the Wii and have it outclass every other RPG for...

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (Wii) – Staff Review

10 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love exists in a strange realm of intersections. It lies between dating sim and tactical mecha combat sim, between long-established Japanese tradition and familiar New York iconography, between the storytelling constructs we know as “video games” and “anime.
