Phantom Crash

Game Description: In the year 2031, Tokyo is suffering from massive air pollution and thermal island phenomenon. The Japanese government has moved its capital to Neo Tokyo City, a shelter city built on an artificial island. Shinjuku and Shibuya of old Tokyo have been closed off to civilians to protect them from collapsing buildings, and the vicinity has been declared "Trash Area." And now in the middle of Trash Area a battle game called Rumbling has started, in which participants pilot Scoobee, a highly mobile close-combat vehicle, to destroy the opponent, earn the prize, and climb the ranking ladder. Since the day it started being televised, Rumbling has thrilled viewers with the excitement of destruction and suspense coming from the invisible danger of optic camouflage. In 2031, Rumbling has become the biggest entertainment in the history. The gladiators of this new era aimed for just two goals: strength and style.

Phantom Crash – Review

If you've been following the release lists for a while, Microsoft's Xbox has been looking like the place to be for fans of big robots. There were an amazing amount of laser-firing ironclad games announced early on, and for gamers like me that was great news. However, I'm starting to wonder how many of these titles will actually deliver high quality action thanks to the subpar releases seen so far.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer – Review

Tokyo Xtreme Racer is all about modern day drag racing through what appears to be a realistic 3D recreation of Tokyos highway. Players start the game off by purchasing a car and then freely cruising about the highway.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer

Game Description: Glide along the nighttime highways in your sleek street machine, flash your headlights to challenge the opposition, and the high-speed race is underway in Tokyo Xtreme Racer. Go head-to-head against your Dreamcast or take on a friend in heated contests of fuel-burning bravado. Keep a close watch on the racing meter, because if it runs out the contest is over. You can earn tons of cash and upgrade your car as you take on faster and meaner racing gangs in Tokyo Xtreme Racer.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer – Second Opinion

For the most part, Chi nailed the same points I wanted to focus on. However, we differed on a few aspects of what makes Tokyo Xtreme Racer good or bad. We certainly agreed on how good a job Genki did modeling the cars in the game. Right from the start, the detail and graphical effects used really caught our eye and indeed are a sign of what awaits users down the road (no pun intended).

Jade Cocoon: The Story of Tamamayu – Review

As successful as Pokémon was, it has always lacked a compelling story or the sophisticated graphics to hold the interest of older players. Genki took notice and when they produced Jade Cocoon, they intended to come through in a big way. Genki abandons Pokémon's large sprawling story line (with a multitude of side stories) for one that could best be described as quaint.

Jade Cocoon: The Story of Tamamayu

Game Description: Try to save your village from a swarm of giant insects in Jade Cocoon: The Story of Tamamayu. Your goal is simple: you must travel through the forests surrounding your town and capture over 150 different monsters. When you capture a monster, you can either sell it for cash or train it to fight for you. If you want to combine the elements of particular monsters, breed them and create the ultimate weapon. Only you can save your village in Jade Cocoon: The Story of Tamamayu.
