NBA Live 2000

Game Description: One of the newest additions to EA's sports lineup, NBA 2000 features more action, more slamming, and more attitude. Broadcast-style camera technology brings you to the heart of the action. Next-generation facial animation with added speech links gives the players more personality and attitude. You can go five-on-five or one-on-one on the street court, with the greatest names in the NBA, past and present, as NBA Live exclusively brings you retired names in the NBA, including the greatest all-time player, Michael Jordan. Play with one of five All-Star teams from the past decade or create your own classic matchups.

NBA 2K – Review

However, the 128-bit generation is now upon us and all of the old must change now due to the ground-breaking hoops title for the Dreamcast by Visual Concepts, NBA2K. This is a game so accurate to the actual sport of basketball that it requires no imagination on the part of the user and certainly made me a true believer.

NBA 2K

Game Description: Visual Concepts hits the hardwood with NBA 2K. Feel the intensity of the last two minutes as you take control and try to bury your opponent with a clutch three-pointer or a devastating dunk. In fact, NBA 2K sports over 100 dunk animations, so, if you’ve seen it on TV, chances are you’ll see it in NBA 2K. You’ll also recognize your favorite players and coaches, thanks to the detailed player models. See if you can take your team to the Finals and stake your claim as NBA Champions with NBA 2K.

NBA 2K – Consumer Guide

NBA Live 2000 – Second Opinion

With his review, Dale has thrown down the gauntlet on the myth of NBA Live's dominance over the genre and I'm right there beside him. I'm totally baffled as to how a game with so many flaws can get so much praise from the media. This game is far from flawless (as some have actually described it!).

Grandia

Game Description: An evil army commander is looking for the last remnants of magic in the world, and intends to use the magic to take over the planet. Take the role of Justin and his friends as they explore the world and try to put a stop to the madman. With 60 hours of gameplay, there are plenty of things to see and do. Can Justin and company unravel the secrets of an ancient race and save the world? Play Grandia and find out.

Grandia – Review

The battle system in Grandia is one of the best I've ever seen and this is all the more impressive when one considers that the game's two years old now.

Grandia – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Mild Animated Violence

Grandia – Second Opinion

I must admit, early on in the game, I wasn't overly impressed with Grandia. I liked the overall production values with the exception of the terrible voice acting, but I had issues with other elements. I found manually rotating the camera-angles to be an awkward and disorienting experience for a console RPG.

The New Tetris – Consumer Guide

Bottom line, there is no reason to buy this game if you own a previous version of Tetris (or 3 or more like Chi and I do). The New Tetris tries to offer something new with the focus on forming squares, but it could be too much of a departure from the norm for Tetris veterans.
