Dreamcast

Dead or Alive 2 – Review

Nearly a decade later and dozens of other entries into the genre, things have changed quite a bit. In Tecmo's newest Dreamcast fighting game, Dead Or Alive 2, the gender of playable characters has shifted dramatically to a near equal five to seven ratio; still in favor of males.

Dead or Alive 2

Game Description: Dead or Alive 2 brings more phenomenal fighting action to the Dreamcast with the gorgeous graphics and incredibly fast gameplay that Sega fans expect. Dead or Alive 2's character-against-character action takes place in gorgeously rendered locations ranging from a cathedral to a moving elevator cage. In a special twist, characters can battle in multiple locations in many of the areas and interact with the environment. This means that the cathedral window is more than just a pretty background—it's just waiting for an opponent to be hurled through it and onto the fighting platform below. Perhaps the coolest feature of all is the Tag Battle mode—available to one-, two-, and four-player games—that enables fighters to summon a teammate into the action. A total of 12 male and female fighters are available, each boasting a slew of basic and special attacks, tag-team combos, reversals, and throws.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes 

Dead or Alive 2 – Second Opinion

When I first learned about the Dead Or Alive series, it was while perusing the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly Magazine; the editors were openly salivating at the overtly 'jiggly' nature of the female fighters in the game. This was a few years back when the first game hit the arcades and was then ported to the Sony PlayStation.

Carrier – Consumer Guide

Carrier – Second Opinion

...there is one problem with Carrier that lowered its score, and that was its lack of originality.

Zombie Revenge – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence

Carrier

Game Description: Carrier takes survival horror to the high seas, as you play one of two government agents sent to investigate an aircraft carrier that has ceased communication with the mainland. You soon come to the horrific realization that the entire ship has become the host for a deadly organism, which has turned the ship’s crew into flesh-eating zombies. See if you’ve got what it takes to clean out the ship and put an end to this strange organism’s reign of terror.

Zombie Revenge – Second Opinion

When I first saw the score Ben gave Zombie Revenge, I thought two things: The new guy is out to prove something and he didn't bother to play through the game thoroughly. That's because I had relatively high expectations ever since I heard that Sega was going to be publishing it.

Zombie Revenge

Game Description: In a change from House of the Dead's first-person viewpoint, Zombie Revenge places all characters (including hordes of attacking zombified souls) in a third-person camera view. A perfect translation of the arcade game by the same name, Zombie Revenge also offers up an original mode that features a few small differences, including the option to play with powered-up guns or in bare knuckles mode (without the aid of handguns).
