Review List
Autumn Dream (demo)
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: 0 hours and 30 minutes
Overall: C-
"Believe me, there are plenty of things out there that are less desirable than playing Autumn Dream. Going to work comes to mind. Catching the flu comes to mind. Paying the bills comes to mind. But obviously there are plenty of things that are more desirable.

I think my final thought for this game is this:

“It needs improvement to be a great game, but it only needs a willing player to garner attention.”

Some gamers will enjoy this for the sole reason that it’s an RPG, and some gamers just like RPGs that much. Those gamers will love this game. The rest of us may only find a slight tickling during the experience and a sigh of relief when it’s over.

"This game is filled with so many flaws that it's disgusting, but the humor and style more than make up for that, so I would still agree that it's worthy of a few minutes of your time. It's not like you'll waste more than twenty minutes or so playing it, so there shouldn't be any real reason to be disappointed. I will say that games like this should only be released as a full version because demos cannot do it any kind of justice, but for what it offers, it's not too bad. It's not too good either, but check it out anyway because you're not likely to see anything else like it for at least a few months."

"For those who can get past the atrocious misuse of dialogue boxes, this game is very much worth playing and keeping. Everything about it is next to perfect, and an update should be the only option for its future. Great game. Most people know this already, but for those who have never given it a chance, give it one now. Go ahead, you know you want to."

"A fun game is a fun game, whether there's depth or not, so play this game if you want some fun. Also, play this game if you want to control a hero named Ampersand."
Endless Saga
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: hours and minutes
Overall: B
"I'm not yet ready to claim this game as an outstanding piece, but I am very impressed with what it's starting, and I highly recommend giving it a try for the plain and simple fact that so much can be learned about game design in just a matter of thirty minutes or less. If that's not a reason to check out a game, then nothing that gets a decent overall score is really all that great. So check it out if you're ready, and look both ways before crossing the street."

"There aren't a whole lot of great things to say about this game on an individual scale, but for some reason I still found it fun. I will say that this will not turn heads, and that it will not finish satisfactory. But, for a measely half hour or so, it's entertaining enough to try. Fortunately it's free, and the humor is worthwhile, so it's getting my seal of approval. Actually, I have to design a seal first, but consider it stamped anyway."

"If you’re looking for a creative method to fighting battles, then this is the game you want to play. But if you’re looking for something that isn’t OHR related, then why in the world are you even reading this?

Thought of the day: “How many times in a row can you say the name of the title without chuckling under your breath?”

Shifter
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: 0 hours and 25 minutes
Overall: B-
"Even though I’m rating this game much higher than it probably deserves, I think there are way too many hidden gems among the mess of inconsistency to justify overlooking it. I’m dissatisfied with the overall presentation (largely because I don’t want to edit somebody’s game in order to play it), but the graphics, the music, the dialogue, and the gimmicks are far too clever to pass this one over. It’s a hefty download, but great for ideas, so take a chance on Moris Shifter. You might be glad you did…maybe.

Thought of the Day:

Moris, the star, has no arms. Kloddwick, the buddy, has a head that disappears into big shoulders.



Has somebody been watching too much Homestar Runner lately?

"Even though this game has good potential, it's too unfinished (even as a demo) to call it a classic. Maybe an update will tell a different tale."
Duck and MJ 2
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: hours and minutes
Overall: B
"This is not the next Zelda or anything, but the fact that this game was better than my expectations made it a pleasant surprise. Add that to the fact that I actually had fun playing it, even though it's short and features a duck as its main character, and I can conclude that its worthy of a tryout."
Scary Game

"This is not recommended for anyone looking for an actual RPG game, but is recommended to everyone who wants something with solid replayability. The only thing it really needs to make it better is more stuff and more gameplay. Otherwise, it's a quite good game."

"Overall I think this game is really just a game. That means that the attempt to make it was noble, and I appreciate the risk involved in releasing it, but I'm really not so sure that it's likable. If I only had ten games to remember throughout the course of the coming year, this would more than likely not be on the list. However, for those who want to see something different, I would say go ahead and check it out, since story and graphics may not be such a big deal to everyone. However, I personally wouldn't recommend this one to anyone who has very little time or patience on his or her hands."
Legend of the Lost Ark
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: hours and minutes
Overall: F
"Right now this game has so little to offer that it's not worth the time, but the character graphics are at the very least good enough to learn something from, so it's worth downloading for educational purposes. I will admit that I look forward to see what becomes of this game in the future, so hopefully there is a lot of promise in store for it."
Dimensions 3

Overall: B-
"For all the annoyances that this game has, I still think it's a cleverly-made game that deserves attention. The areas that need work really need a lot of it, but there's still enough good parts left over to justify saying that the author put a lot of heart into making this. With that, I'll say give it a try, even if it's just to see the uniqueness of the design."

"What can I say? This game sucks. Wait. Who tricked me into saying that? Okay, let me restate my opinions in a different way. Does anybody remember the first time they saw Star Wars, the Matrix, or Raiders of the Lost Ark? What did you think about them? No, really, this is a serious question. What did you think about them? Mmm hmm, what's that? I see. Then what are you waiting for? The sequel? Yeah, well goodnight from Pepsi Ranger."
Ends of the Earth
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: hours and minutes
Overall: A-
"The flimsy story development costs the game's overall score to drop a little, but everything else is so on-target that it makes the experience worth it anyway. The fantastical elements of the gameworld are as good as a book from Greek Mythology, and the map design of each area keeps things heading in the right direction. Of course, the best thing of all is that this is a finished game. How many projects make it that far? If you've never played this game before, go ahead and play it now because you can't experience what hundreds of other gamers have experienced if you don't."
Ends of the Earth 2

Overall: A-
"I really don't know what else to say about this game except that everyone who cares about RPGs should check it out. It's perfected the Final Fantasy feel, and doesn't waste it with junky characters and a lame storyline. It's good enough to ask or even demand the creation of an Ends of the Earth 3, and hope all threads are tied by the end. Excellent game."

Rise of the Dragon Slayers

"For those who love great graphics, this game is a great choice to add to your collection. But, for anyone who cares about substance, then maybe it would be better to pass this one by. But, then again, this is the summer, so if Hollywood can pass off eye glitter and shallow plots as entertainment, then maybe the OHR can do it too."
Sailor Moon: Another Dimension
Reviewed by Pepsi Ranger
Playtime: hours and minutes
Overall: B-
"Okay, now for the big one. What can one really expect from a Sailor Moon game? If a fan picks this game up and gives it a serious chance, he or she may be pleasantly surprised. However, if a non-fan picks this game up and gives it a try...it would be wise to lock all doors and board up all windows, and hope he doesn't come looking for a way to break tension. So, to sum up the scores for the game's overall appeal, eight-year-old girls would gladly give it a ten, but guys like me would say four at the absolute best. The kid loved it, but I cheered when it was over. Anyway, here's the combined score..."
Planetoid Pengiuins

"When everything boils down to substance, this game seems to be lacking the rich ingredients. I think I could best compare it to McDonald's. Essentially, it's got enough to satisfy the hunger, but it ain't all that great. Oh well, at least it's cheap. So, play it if you want to laugh (with the game, and at it), but you won't be missing a whole lot if you let it go for now. The decision is yours, and yours alone. Make it or break it. Sing it or wing it. Okay, this just made me stupid. Sorry."

"I like this game for the most part. Rather, I'd like to see where it's going. I will say that for all the hope I had going into it, I didn't finish it feeling completely satisfied. However, I still found elements worth playing with and even thinking about, so I'll recommend it for educational purposes, and possibly even for some entertainment value. But I'd bank more on the education right now since the story isn't very interesting yet. Not too bad otherwise."
