Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy – Review

Over the past few years, gaming has started to notice the value of having a main character duo as opposed to a lone hero. In some games, like Banjo-Kazooie, the teaming up is essential to advancing through the game's missions (players must utilize both Banjo and Kazooie to complete different objectives). Other games, like Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter aren't quite so ambitious in their use of two lead characters--the mute Jak does all of the work while Daxter provides the running commentary. However, theres no denying that the presence of a second lead character (or even a sidekick) gives these games an edge over their more traditional single lead character counterparts.

Stuart Little 2 – Review

Parents and children in search of quality game software haven't had an easy time despite the industrys recent boom years. Theres no shortage of inane titles lining shelves with only a cartoon license or television character as the selling point, but these kinds of shovelware arent acceptable. If a game is too simplistic and boring, its hard for parents to maintain interest in their childs activity. If the game isnt very good to begin with, or if the difficulty level isnt keyed in to young ones, the child will get frustrated by the gameplay.

The Mark of Kri – Review

The shift in videogames from 2D to 3D has led to the development of many new and interesting concepts, but some old favorites have found that making the jump to the next generation has been tougher than expected. It's arguable that old-school shooters may have had the roughest transition, but in my view developers trying to recreate classic beat-'em-ups like Final Fight or Streets Of Rage are the ones that have consistently stumbled time and time again.

The Mark of Kri

Game Description:  An intense and exhilarating fighting adventure experience, The Mark of Kri delivers graphic and gory fighting in a stylish cartoon universe. The gameplay is varied and involves exploration, strategy, and stealth, among other elements. With an engaging story line filled with conflict, magic, and discovery, the game follows Rau, a heroic warrior unmatched in skill and strength, as he battles through richly detailed environments to discover the truth about his family's dark secret. Featuring a completely new and innovative combat system, detailed character design, and clever gameplay, The Mark of Kri aims to breathe new life into the action-adventure genre.

FreQuency – Second Opinion

Frequency leads a relatively short list of music games on the PlayStation 2, which is a bit of a surprise since the popularity of the genre is continuing to grow. Music is at the very core of Frequency; many types of music are represented in the game and the gameplay lets players believe that they actually are performing and making the music happen by using their controllers to input beats for each instrument, such as guitars, synthesizers, and drums.

FreQuency – Review

Its not often that Im left stymied when reviewing a disc. Personally, I tend to get a clear vibe on something shortly after firing it up, and that gut feeling is rarely wrong. Until I encountered Frequency, I couldnt ever recall feeling so indecisive about a game. I got a lot of mixed signals while playing it, and just didnt know what to make of it.
