Acclaim

Ferrari F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa – Review

Of all of the countless racing games that have been released over the last few years, only a small few have managed to be true pioneers in what is possibly the most over-saturated genre in video games.

All-Star Baseball 2001

Game Description: The All-Star Baseball series slides into a new season with tons of new features and gameplay details. All 30 Major League Baseball teams (with more than 700 players) play ball in each of the 30 MLB stadiums—all rendered in realistic 3D. Players can even assemble the first ever Hall of Fame team, featuring Reggie Jackson and Nolan Ryan. A new batting practice mode warms up players against different pitches, locations, and deliveries. Once primed, it's time to hit the diamond for some realistic baseball action in exhibition, season, playoff, or home run derby mode. Batters choose from over 100 stances and home run swings. The advanced batting interface allows players to adjust the sweet spot for power or contact hitting. Pitchers are offered plenty of options as well, including a pitch after-touch feature that allows throwers to control the ball's movements after release.

All-Star Baseball 2001 – Second Opinion

When I first played Acclaim's All-Star Baseball 2000 last year, I was convinced that this was as good as baseball could get on a console and quickly proclaimed it the best baseball game I've played in recent memory.

All-Star Baseball 2001 – Review

Unlike so many other baseball games before it, All-Star Baseball 2001 simply takes the time to put elements of the game that so many other games choose to ignore. This means that pitchers actually throw wild pitches that get away from the catcher or fielders misplay balls by overthrowing the receiver or booting the ball. Base runners get picked off for leading too far or caught stealing on a pitch out. Batters develop hot and cold streaks.

All-Star Baseball 2001 – Consumer Guide

Turok: Rage Wars – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Turok: Rage Wars

Game Description: In a twist on its predecessors, Turok: Rage Wars ditches some of the involved storyline to bring you more unadulterated combat. Start in Scenario mode, as you try to unlock 14 different characters in your training for battle. With 19 ranks to achieve, 25 player skins to unlock, and 50 medals to attain, you’ve certainly got your work cut out for you. There are 17 playable characters in all, as well as 13 different Universal power-ups this game isn’t going to get boring any time soon.

Turok: Rage Wars – Second Opinion

Well first off, being the defensive player that I am I take issue with the design of the levels as well as Chi's "cowardly tactics" comment. I like wide open areas that allow for some degree of hiding and I wasn't thrilled by the fact that I couldn't go too many steps in some levels without running into another player or opponent. The other thing is the sheer monotony of the single player. Don't get me wrong it is functional but it's obviously been made for those who couldn't get enough of four-player GoldenEye 007 and Quake 64 II and are dying to build up their skills here and later show them off against friends.

Turok: Rage Wars – Review

Actually the third release bearing the Turok name, Rage Wars unlike its two previous efforts, jettisons the traditional one-player mode for full-featured multiplayer options instead. That's not to say that there isn't any semblance of a single-player game.
