Super Monkey Ball – Review

When I first heard about Super Monkey Ball, I was looking forward to a couple of other high-profile GameCube titles, like Star Wars: Rogue Leader and Super Smash Bros. Melee. Super Monkey Ball had nearly slipped under my radar screen since the arcade game from which this game is ported never saw the light of day outside of Japan, and I knew very little about it.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance

Game Description: Experience the massively popular world of Baldur's Gate as never before! Dark Alliance thrusts you into an epic adventure filled with intense action, intricate puzzles and sinister intrigue: where your mastery of cold steel and devastating spells is the only thing between you and ultimate evil. Play as one of three amazing heroes, each with unique powers, appearances and skills and hack and slash your way through more than 40 action-packed levels and battle over 35 vicious creatures including Gelatinous Cubes, Frost Giants and Dragons.

Extreme G Racing III – Review

Although the core concept of the game—race jet-powered bikes on gravity-defying tracks while dueling with other racers—remains unchanged, some remarkably subtle changes (not to mention some not-so-subtle ones) have transformed Extreme G from a mediocre trend-follower to a well executed, exhilarating racer.

Extreme G Racing III – Second Opinion

When the novelty of the new features wear off, Extreme G III shows the chinks in its armor. Although vast, the environments in the game are rather plain and in many areas, they are downright barren. Admittedly this probably responsible for the silky smooth framerates we praised it for, but more variety in the surroundings would have gone a long way toward giving this game some personality.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X – Second Opinion

Whenever I play Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, I'm always reminded of something a character once said in a cartoon show I used to watch a few years back. "New packaging, same product. Losers." While Code Veronica X does not deserve the latter part of this statement, the first sentence found in it pretty much sums up my opinion of this game.

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

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X – Review

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X isn't what I'd call a great game. But it's hard to criticize it for what it is. In my opinion it's really hard to judge the RE franchise at this point for conventions that it obviously has no intentions of significantly altering, for better or worse.

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.
