Gran Turismo 3: A-spec – Second Opinion

It wasnt until after playing Gran Turismo 3 (GT3) for several more weeks did I finally "get it." I finally figured out that whether or not one will enjoy GT3 boils down to essentially one thing: the "feel" of the driving physics. You either accept it or reject it. You either love it or you hate it.

Final Fantasy Chronicles – Review

Final Fantasy Anthology seemed to be just what the doctor ordered for old-school role-playing game fans like me. After seeing what Square did with the Japanese version (called Final Fantasy Collection), I was more than a little excited to see the game on these shores.

Final Fantasy Chronicles – Second Opinion

After reading Dale's coverage of Final Fantasy Chronicles and being assigned the task of doing the Second Opinion, I was strongly tempted to simply write "Ditto" and call it done.

NBA Street – Review

Toss out any preconceptions you might have of league organized 5-on-5 simulation basketball. The setup for NBA Street is simple. It's 3-on-3 fullcourt basketball. Shots made inside the arch are worth one point. Shots made beyond the arch count for two.

Crazy Taxi 2 – Review

How could Sega release a game about cabbies and leave out New York City: the cabbie mecca of the world? Our tales of cabbies in this city are legendary—some rival the very things you are expected to pull off in Crazy Taxi. I could only conclude (and hope) that the developer would realize its error and correct it in a sequel. Sure enough Hitmaker did just that with Crazy Taxi 2.

The Adventures of Cookie & Cream – Review

Their most recent offering, The Adventures of Cookie & Cream, seems like a simple action/platformer at first glance, but it reveals itself to be decidedly different from other recent releases by making cooperative effort and teamwork the driving force behind the game.

NBA Street – Second Opinion

After playing for an hour or so I began to wonder if this was just another caricature video game along the lines of Midway's Ready 2 Rumble.

The Adventures of Cookie & Cream – Second Opinion

Cookie & Cream is inventive, amusing and gratifying. From Software took the chance and created this game and it should be rewarded for it.

Crazy Taxi 2 – Second Opinion

New York City may be the real-life mecca for cabbies everywhere, but the faux-NYC depicted in Crazy Taxi 2 isnt a place I particularly enjoyed driving in. While I loved the first installment of the game, I honestly didnt see much room for improvement.

18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker – Review

With the international success of Crazy Taxi, it only seemed natural that its developer, Sega, would follow up the smash hit with 18-Wheeler, another arcade-style occupational theme videogame. As the title implies, the difference this time around is the switch from driving a limber and high-flying car that cabbied passengers around town to driving a massive truck that transports goods from one location to another. This might sound like a good idea and loads of fun on the surface, but the execution of the title is so dreadful that the loads of fun ended up being just plain crap.
