Brave: The Search For Spirit Dancer – Review

VIS have succeeded in not alienating their young target audience, but sacrificed any memorable gameplay that could well have emerged from having a bit more fun with the design brief. It's a depressingly familiar pyrrhic victory...

Brave: The Search For Spirit Dancer

Game Description: Set in a fantastic world based upon the mythology of Native America, the game tells the coming of age story of Brave, a young Native American boy embarking on an epic journey to save his tribe. When his village is set upon by the evil Wendigo, and his friends are enslaved, Brave is sent to find the only one that can free them - Spirit Dancer, the greatest Shaman who ever lived.

Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick – Second Opinion

Mike B. is right in saying that Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick is better than the previous Evil Dead attempt, but that's sort of like saying that eating eight pounds of crap is better than ten. Technically, it is better but when you get right down to it, so what? It's still crap, and no amount of embedded sweet corn can make it tasty.

Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick – Review

THQ and developer VIS (the guys responsible for the mega-hyped failure State Of Emergency) began work on a new Evil Dead game: Evil Dead: A Fistful Of Boomstick. While not a great game on any level, the game does at least improve upon its predecessor.

State Of Emergency – Second Opinion

My first impressions of State Of Emergency were favorable. At the time, I was still being amazed with everything Grand Theft Auto III (GTA3) had to offer and the idea of a game similar (or so I thought) to Rockstars crime simulator in which the main theme would revolve around riots rather than car thefts seemed promising and original. Unfortunately, one problem in particular brought all my positive expectations to an abrupt end: having actually played the game.

State Of Emergency – Review

Given Rockstar's recent list of titles (Grand Theft Auto III, Max Payne and Smuggler's Run 2) and its latest PlayStation 2 venture, State Of Emergency, the company could be accused of poisoning the minds of young generations with videogames focusing on criminal and deviant behavior. While it may not be subject to legal "bad tendency," State Of Emergency outlines another kind of bad tendency among game developers: the tendency to stick over-the-top violence into videogames, for lack of more creative concepts.

State Of Emergency

Game Description: Like Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto III, State of Emergency offers the player virtually unlimited scope for mayhem, and huge, sprawling urban environments to explore through missions or nonlinear action. But this time the level of chaos has been upped considerably, as the game offers the potential for hundreds of rioters to be onscreen at once, each with his or her own AI, set of motivations, and loyalties. The environments are intricately interactive; almost any object (including body parts) can be picked up and used as a weapon.
