Speed Devils

Game Description: Fast-paced, arcade-style driving action hits the Dreamcast in the form of Ubi Soft's Speed Devils—only this time, it's personal. The first thing you'll notice is the game's emphasis on presenting recognizable rivals throughout the races. Instead of competing against faceless "computer" foes, you meet 17 rival drivers with distinct personalities; these defining characteristics come out in their driving tendencies. Yu Kioto's calm demeanor, for example, is reflected in his calculated, mistake-free driving. It's a cool feature that gives the single-player game depth: you not only have to handle wacky obstacles as you roar around the track, but you have to handle each driver differently.

NHL 2K – Second Opinion

Having not played a hockey game seriously with the exceptions of NHL Hockey and Konami's Blades Of Steel for the NES and Wayne Gretzky Hockey 64 on the Nintendo 64, about all I can add is that even a relative novice like myself found the computer's "defense" to be a bit on the easy side. Admittedly, I wasn't having my way with the computer the way Ben seems to have, but I could see that there were times when the opposing team didn't want to even show up (kind of like the Buffalo Sabres in this year's playoffs).

NHL 2K – Review

There's no doubting the amazing audio and visual advancements that NHL 2K so eagerly showcases. Combine those with easy-to-handle controls and solid gameplay and you have a strong case for the most enjoyable hockey simulation ever. This game gets back to the basics, whereas the most recent hockey games on PlayStation and Nintendo 64 have been following an ugly trend of overly complicated gameplay. NHL 2K is the most fun I've had playing hockey since EA Sports' glory days on the Sega Genesis.

NHL 2K

Game Description: In the tradition of NBA 2K and NFL 2K, two of the finest console sports games to date, Sega's NHL 2K aims to score big as the most realistic hockey simulation game ever seen. Those who've witnessed the capabilities of this game's predecessors know what to expect: hyperrealistic gameplay, TV-perfect camera angles, jaw-dropping graphics, expert game commentary, and other fine details that capture the spirit of the sport.

Chu Chu Rocket! – Review

Though the conflict between cats and mice has been well-documented in storybooks and cartoons, there haven't been many videogames based on the subject (and the ones based on Tom and Jerry don't count). Once again showing what they can do when they're not bogged down by the Sonic franchise, Sonic Team has created an absolute masterpiece in Chu Chu Rocket!—a raucous cat-and-mouse affair that never grows tiresome.

Chu Chu Rocket! – Second Opinion

...it seems their creators spend so much time focusing on tightening the gameplay that they don't focus as much on the game's length, and this only hurts the game.

Chu Chu Rocket!

Game Description: Online gaming has arrived on the Dreamcast! Chu Chu Rocket is the first game to fully utilize the Internet connectivity of the Dreamcast. This simple (but very addictive) puzzle game is strongly reminiscent of the traditional "cat-and-mouse" game. Your goal is to herd some intergalactic rats (the strangely-named Chu Chus) into a rocket, while avoiding some whacked-out space cats (a.k.a. Kapu Kapus) that are in fast pursuit.

Gran Turismo 2

Game Description: Get all the tire-screeching excitement of real-life racing with Gran Turismo 2. Tear through 20 hair-raising tracks from Seattle to Tahiti in one of more than 500 incredibly detailed, brand name autos. Then customize your car by purchasing parts with your winnings.

Gran Turismo 2 – Second Opinion

I know that the very sight of my mediocre rating for such a highly touted game as Gran Turismo 2 will bring down the wrath of hundreds of fans crying "blasphemy." But before anyone ignites a torch or hurls a stone, please read through my review and try to understand my perspective first.
