Dragon Ball GT Final Bout (PS1) Review (via Wayback Machine)

Didn’t expect this did ya? Here’s a very special gift from the depths of Wayback Machine; my first EVER review! Written wayback on July 26th, 2005 at IGN’s Reader Reviews section!

The site’s changed a billion times over the last decade plus and the section no longer exists natively. Thanks to Wayback Machine, I was able to dig it up, and screen-cap it in its original glory, typos and all!

I was 16 at the time and at my peak Budokai craze so I was VERY easy on the game despite its obvious poor quality (bar the music, that’s ABSOLUTELY amazing!). So with that, click on and have a look at the image with its Wayback Machine link at the end. Click the image to load it in a new window/tab for the full size!

Here’s a charming little 2.5D platformer starring a little blue guy with a propeller on his head named Heroki. This is created by a small team called Picomy who actually contributed to Level Design in Sonic Mania, true story!

In fact, this game originated on iOS and was even published by Sega. However the Switch version had no involvement from Sega, though Sega are still credited in the credits which you can view from the main menu. So how is this game? Does it fly or does it crash and burn? Let’s find out!

Release Date: June 19th, 2018 (NA)

This is a game by the creator of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. That game was made over at UTV Ignition and specifically Ignition Tokyo. Now that Ignition is no more, the creator decided to work with Kadokawa Games in Japan from Crim to make a more classic dungeon crawler-style game similar to Etrian Odyssey, but also with seemingly some visual novel elements. How does this game fare? You know the drill, time to find out!
