Spider-Man

Game Description: Take a look overhead—Spider-Man is arriving to the PlayStation just in time. As the beloved photojournalist-cum-webslinger, you'll freely explore New York's skyline, sewers, and hideouts to fulfill several missions. Use Spider-Man's superhuman strength to fight such notorious foes as Scorpion, Venom, and Rhino. Use his spider abilities to spin webs (any size) to disable and detain bosses, swing around buildings, and creep along walls and ceilings. And thanks to your spider-sense, you'll detect impending danger from a distance. There is no wealth or fame at the end of this game, however; action is your reward.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Review

Without a doubt, the first thing that drew my attention was that despite the game being presented in a tiny little screen with 2-D sprites, virtually nothing was lost in the gameplay department. The perspective of the game is now locked down to a three-quarters overhead view (more like the original NES game) without the benefit of any 3-D camera panning or close-ups.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color)

Game Description: A group of terrorists has captured an American cargo plane containing Metal Gear, the most dangerous weapon on the planet. It is now up to one man to infiltrate the terrorist base and destroy Metal Gear.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Second Opinion

I agree with Chi's statement that Metal Gear Solid is a technical achievement for Game Boy. Konami did an excellent job porting an elaborate 32-bit 3-D game down to an 8-bit portable system. With that said, I felt the game was far less compelling than Chi did. I would find myself putting the game down after a game session and later having to force myself to pick it up, only because I wanted to get my money's worth.

Strider 2 – Second Opinion

Like Ben, I enjoyed growing up in the golden age of arcades and have many fond memories of days riding to my local 7-11 to play the latest cabinet, or many evenings spent trying to connive my dad into taking me to Chuck E. Cheese only to spend three hours there without touching the pizza. However, the good feeling of those golden years gone by don't really carry over to the current incarnation of Strider 2. Based on my memories of the original arcade release and the nearly flawless Genesis port of the first Strider, I was ready to put my money down sight unseen and trust in Capcom to produce something as solid and fun to play as the first game. However, I was quite disappointed.

Strider 2 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Strider 2

Game Description: Strider 2 is a side-scrolling slice- and dice-'em-up that moves at a deliberately fast pace. Playing as Strider Hiryu, your moves are pretty simple slash, slide, and wall climbing which lets you concentrate more on having fun. Your goal is to make it through five major levels each capped with a deadly boss, and still have all your arms, legs, and personal effects intact. Included with Strider 2  is the original Strider, which many of us spent all our paper route earnings on when it ruled the arcades in the late 1980s.

Strider 2 – Review

Everyone knows that 2D is Capcom's speciality, and truthfully, I've never seen such an exciting combination of visuals as in Strider 2. People used to talk about how PlayStation couldn't handle 2D graphics as well as Saturn could, but I'm here to say that Saturn could have never handled Strider 2. I've never seen better graphics on PlayStation.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards – Review

To resolve this, Nintendo and HAL, a second party of Nintendo, created a game featuring a slow-moving character that was little more than a circle with feet and put him in a sidescroller, similar to Super Mario Bros. The result was Kirby's Dream Land.
