Rogue Galaxy review

Think PS2 RPGs are dead? This immensely addictive space opera will change your mind

To unlock those special techniques (which range from simple power-ups to massive group attacks), you'll need to tackle each character's "Revelation Flow," essentially a flowchart with empty slots for items. Fill all the slots for a particular ability, and you'll get a new move to bust out in battle, as well as clearing a path to the next set of skills. At first, the items used for Revelations seem like random crap, being useless baubles, hunks of ore and weird food items. But eventually, you'll find other uses for that stuff, and as those items get rarer and rarer, you'll start to get really choosy about how you dole them out.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
