NFL 2K1 – Consumer Review

World Series Baseball 2K1 – Review

I can't recall in recent memory a console launching with a sports franchise the likes of Sega Enterprises' Sega Sports. From the very beginning these sports titles showed off the power of the console at launch, and more to the point, they set new watermarks in their respective genre.

Monster Rancher Battle Card: Episode II

Game Description: Episode II, the sequel to Monster Rancher BattleCard, shares many of the same elements of its predecessor. The idea here is still to collect game cards and use them in "battles," where the cards represent attacks, defenses, and improvements to the player's skills. But this game has added a very interesting twist to the addictive trading-card-game genre. You can swap the Episode II disc out of your PlayStation console for virtually any other audio CD, CD-ROM, or even another PlayStation game to create new game cards that you can then save to a separately sold memory card and share with your friends. In Episode II, players are off on a search for the indispensable monster assistant, Colt, who has vanished to the Paradise of Monsters. To find him, you'll have to battle your way through a series of islands to collect all the cards.

Monster Rancher Battle Card: Episode II – Review

Taking the concept of playable and collectable cards one step further by bringing it to an electronic format and succeeding fabulously, Tecmo brings us Monster Rancher Battle Cards. Based on their two other virtual pet/monster raising niche titles, Battle Cards takes the same previously established world and characters and gives them an entirely different style of play.

Monster Rancher Battle Card: Episode II – Second Opinion

I wasn't interested in giving Battle Card 2 any praise when I first saw the game because I have come to view these "battle card" games as cheap opportunities for publishers to milk a popular franchise. But after playing it, I found that it held a few surprises that almost made me overlook the static 2-D graphics, inadequate translations, lack of a multiplayer and uninteresting cast of characters.

Giga Wing

Game Description: A mysterious object called the Medallion has been fought over by good and evil for thousands of years. It's up to four courageous fighters to seek out the Medallion and destroy this agent of power that has been blamed for every war that's ever been fought. You're one of these noble men who've been selected to execute this mission. Jump into the cockpit of your specialized fighter plane and take on all comers, as you journey towards your toughest opponent, the Medallion itself.

Giga Wing – Second Opinion

Like Ben, I was eager to get my hands on a mindless 2-D shooter like Giga Wing. It was supposed to be a welcome break from the huge involving RPGs I've been playing of late. I never intended to scrutinize Giga Wing too severely as I usually lower my expectations for arcade ports and this type of game in particular. That's what makes the game such a sad case—it only needed to be at least average to garner a positive review from me, and it couldn't even do that.
