Rumble Racing – Second Opinion

Whether it was intentional or not, Rumble Racing reminded me of a digital Matchbox racing game. The selection of cars seems to be pulled right out of a Matchbox toy set; each car looks like an over-sized version of the die-cast metal hotrods I collected as a kid. The stunts and over-the-top tracks all add to the extreme feel, making Rumble Racing a nice break from the likes of Driving Emotion Type-S or Gran Turismo 3: A-spec. Unfortunately, its flaws were too great to be hidden by any feelings of nostalgia I may have had.

Knockout Kings 2000 (PlayStation) – Review

KK2000 plays like a no-nonsense, yet full-featured interpretation of boxing. If you've ever seen it in the ring, you can probably do it in the game (with the exception of having some idiot parachuting into the ring and, thankfully, the patented Tyson-ear chomp).

Knockout Kings 2000 (PlayStation) – Second Opinion

I agree with Chi here, in fact there isn't much I can find to disagree with. The legendary boxers are represented here much more faithfully than in the N64 version and the extras on the disc (boxer bios and 'classic fights') are pretty slick and are welcome additions. As Chi mentioned, this version is much more of a simulation and those of you who read my N64 review will know that the lack of this feature was mostly responsible for my low overall rating.
