Spider-Man: The Movie – Review

The transitional relationship between movies and video games can often be compared to that of oil and water. One simply doesnt mix in the other. Movie-based games often hide behind the illusion of presenting players with the chance to relive the motion picture story through the eyes of the protagonist. In most cases, however, the character is guided through a distorted version of the film that is barely recognizable in a game that seems to have been neglected in its production. Before I even started playing Spider-Man: The Movie, it already had two factors going against it—the first being that it is based upon a film. To this day I can still remember the movie-based atrocities released during the Super Nintendo/Genesis era that did little more than provide gamers with some horrendous gaming experiences. The other stereotype I blindly branded Spider-Man with was the expectation of playing nothing more than an ordinary 3-D beat em up. After all, the last Spider-Man game I played was on a 16-Bit console in which there was little else to do other than line up villains for beatings. To my surprise, Activisions take on Spideys movie proves that an exception to the rule is always possible.

Project Gotham Racing – Review

If the devil is in the details, then Project Gotham Racing is old Scratch himself. Not only does the game feature real world cars, locations, and an eye for the most minute of details (like the water splatter coming off the tires on a rainy track), but it also features real world radio stations and DJs spinning tunes for your driving pleasure. These arent your generic themes, either; the game features tracks by real bands such as Gorillaz and a variety of hip hop acts as well. Tired of the in-game soundtrack? Then take advantage of the Xbox hard drive and rip some tracks of your own. Project Gotham Racing allows for players to import their very own music for use while driving.

James Bond 007 in Agent Under Fire – Review

Unfortunately, despite some redeeming qualities, Agent Under Fire ultimately feels like yet another attempt to slap a lucrative license onto derivative gameplay in an attempt to fatten the bottom line.

Sega Soccer Slam – Second Opinion

In sports games, there is a clear split between two different groups. One group of games does their best to simulate a sport, whereas the other group takes the sport and changes it in an obvious manner. This latter group is widely referred to as the arcade-style sports games, and Sega Soccer Slam definitely falls into this category, and for the most part it works. By using fewer players, Sega allows for greater detail being attached to each player, as well as other numerous touches, including almost entirely polygonal crowdsa very welcome sight in a sports game.
