Twisted Metal Black – Review

April 19, 2002

The visceral experience of playing Twisted Metal Black is frenzied and addictive enough to keep you playing long after your eyes start to hurt.

Ico – Review

April 19, 2002

This is a very strange, very unique, very simple and low-key adventure. You are Ico, the girl, Yorda, follows you. You are human, she is not.

MX2002 – Review

April 19, 2002

MX2002 works well because motorcross is fun for the participant, the controls are smooth and easy to use, and because it has so many play modes.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 – Review

April 19, 2002

Virtual skateboarding at its best, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 is yet another incarnation of the king of extreme sports games, this time on a better game system.

Toy Story Racer – Review

February 22, 2002

Get behind the wheel as one of your favorite characters, from major players like Buzz Lightyear to comic relief players like Cliff Claven… er, I mean, Hamm.

The Simpsons Wrestling – Review

February 22, 2002

Worthy of the Krusty brand trademark, The Simpsons Wrestling trades on the popularity of the TV icons with an unremarkable product with little appeal.

Quake III – Team Arena – Review

February 22, 2002

An expansion pack for Quake III. It won’t work without the original and adds features that should never’ve been left out of the initial release.

Quake III – Revolution – Review

February 22, 2002

A valiant but insufficient effort to export a very popular multiplayer only PC game onto a console system that won’t have online capability for a year.

Onimusha – Review

February 2, 2002

Despite its unoriginal plot and brevity, Onimusha is great choice for new PS2 owners who want to see their system flex some graphic-generating muscle.

Championship Motocross 2001 – Review

June 1, 2001

Choose from two classes of motorcycles, 20 tracks, and 28 drivers for either a single race or a championship mode, where a series of races are linked together.

WCW Backstage Assault – Review

April 1, 2001

Have you ever had that primal urge to pick up whatever’s lying around and beat someone with it? WCW Backstage Assault may be for you.

Tony Hawk – Pro Skater 2 – Review

April 1, 2001

There’s enough fun and variety present to make this a prized title for a very, very long time, and will suck in people not generally impressed by video games.

Spider Man – Review

April 1, 2001

Spider-Man is a big step in the right direction for the long but superhumanly unimpressive list of video games based on comic books.

X-Men – Mutant Academy – Review

September 1, 2000

X-Men: Mutant Academy is a disappointing two-dimensional fighting game that does no justice to the thirty-year-old comic property it represents.

Shogun – Total War – Review

September 1, 2000

Best described as a highly-centralized, very complex variation on Risk, Shogun has the look and feel of an exceptionally complicated and challenging board game.

Dark Reign 2 – Review

September 1, 2000

Other than the dynamic and awe-inspiring but tactically useless camera, innovation in Dark Reign 2 generally tweaks rather than invents.

X – Beyond the Frontier – Review

June 1, 2000

Occasionally beautiful, oddly compelling, excruciatingly boring, and tantalizingly full of promise, this is a unique experience few will appreciate.
