Amped 2 – Consumer Guide

SSX 3

Game Description: It's you against the mountain. SSX 3 challenges gamers to drop in and conquer a massive, living mountain rife with ego-crushing challenges and gravity-bending thrills. Sporting an all-new open-ended gameplay structure, gamers are free to ride anywhere gravity takes them, seamlessly boarding from one event to the next as they begin their assault on the mountain's three larger-than-life peaks. Gamers will need to overcome everything the mountain throws at them-from fierce lightening storms and breathtaking vertical drops to serpentine slope style courses and earth-swallowing avalanches-on their quest for the ultimate adrenaline rush. The mountain presents gamers with a world of open vistas and fresh powder for out of bounds exploration, filled with trick venues, rail parks, racecourses, and half-pipes with new tricks to master and new competitors to leave in the dust.

SSX 3 – Review

SSX 3 is fantastic, despite a few small issues. It can be oddly frustrating at times, yet it has enough merit to make it one of my favorite games this year. It doesn't necessarily refresh the nostalgia I had when it was SSX two releases ago, but it definitely re-introduces the fun lacking in the gaming slump I've experienced lately. With a solid array of courses and the addition of online rivalry, SSX 3 is very rewarding and, more importantly, ultimately fun.

ESPN NHL Hockey – Review

Hockey is a game of speed, finesse, grit and grind. Injury is commonplace, and the ability to shirk pain is viewed as a right of passage. Yet where actual players incur very real bumps and gashes, the pain I experienced while playing ESPN NHL Hockey was strictly metaphorical—a bruised ego.

Yanya Caballista: City Skater – Review

Initially, I was expecting a game like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, with free form environments and highly varied goals. Instead, I found an experience more like Jet Set Radio: a strictly timed affair where the goals are all painfully similar and figuring out how to get to the next goal is half the challenge.

Play Under Review - April 2003

In this edition of Play under Review, we take a look at each of the latest soccer simulations currently available in the U.S. As noted before in other editions of Play under Review, the crucial decision for sports games must be whether to be an arcade game or a simulation game, where a simulation game is concerned mainly with attempting to replicate an existing sport, whereas arcade games do not have to bother with many concessions to reality.
