Mega Man X6

Game Description: Can anyone stop Megaman? Far be it from the makers of this series (Capcom, incidentally) to quit while they’re ahead, as the Megaman franchise continues to get better with age. Since Zero expired in the last installment, Mega will have to work alone as he tries to save the Reploids in this chapter. Make your way through eight enemy-infested levels of play, defeating boss characters and stealing their weaponry. A randomized mapping system, variable endings, and all-new Nightmare System ensure the title will deliver the highest replay value possible.

State Of Emergency

Game Description: Like Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto III, State of Emergency offers the player virtually unlimited scope for mayhem, and huge, sprawling urban environments to explore through missions or nonlinear action. But this time the level of chaos has been upped considerably, as the game offers the potential for hundreds of rioters to be onscreen at once, each with his or her own AI, set of motivations, and loyalties. The environments are intricately interactive; almost any object (including body parts) can be picked up and used as a weapon.

State Of Emergency – Second Opinion

My first impressions of State Of Emergency were favorable. At the time, I was still being amazed with everything Grand Theft Auto III (GTA3) had to offer and the idea of a game similar (or so I thought) to Rockstars crime simulator in which the main theme would revolve around riots rather than car thefts seemed promising and original. Unfortunately, one problem in particular brought all my positive expectations to an abrupt end: having actually played the game.

State Of Emergency – Review

Given Rockstar's recent list of titles (Grand Theft Auto III, Max Payne and Smuggler's Run 2) and its latest PlayStation 2 venture, State Of Emergency, the company could be accused of poisoning the minds of young generations with videogames focusing on criminal and deviant behavior. While it may not be subject to legal "bad tendency," State Of Emergency outlines another kind of bad tendency among game developers: the tendency to stick over-the-top violence into videogames, for lack of more creative concepts.

Mega Man X6 – Review

The simplicity of some of these games is probably what makes them so memorable. With the Mega Man series, Capcom offered players some of the best platformers of their time, all the while avoiding complicated aspects.

Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat – Review

Looking at recent releases, there must have been some kind of competition among game developers to release B-class adventure games starring female characters. Two discs with cheesy titles hit shelves within a month of each other, and they're very similar in a lot of ways. While Drakan: The Ancients' Gate was first to stores, Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat was right on its heels.

Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat

Game Description: In Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat, you'll take to the high seas as fearless pirate Katarina de Leon. You'll master a dozen pirate ships, from a simple gunboat to a massive man-of-war. There are 12 vessels in all, drawn from history and legend. You will discover and explore increasingly dangerous and fantastic island worlds, and develop swordplay skills to defeat evil pirate bands and loot their treasures. The game includes witch doctors, mermaids, mythical beasts, skull apes, and other beings to befriend or battle. The hand-to-hand battle system allows you to swordfight with two-handed combo moves, while ship-to-ship combat lets you to go head-to-head against the computer or another player.
