Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style – Second Opinion

Shaolin Style surprised me again after spending several minutes practicing with a few of the characters in the training mode. I immediately noticed the amount of depth and complexity that went into the vicious over-the-top attacks. It's clear that the developers put forth a solid effort in conceptualizing a wide variety of attacks for the multitude of characters in the game.

Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style

Game Description: Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style for the PlayStation is a violent and explosive fighting game. The characters are all members of the popular rap group Wu-Tang Clan, including Method Man and ODB. There are a total of 11 fighters, with some that have to be unlocked by completing certain tasks. Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style is the first four-player fighting game on the PlayStation, and it’s full of characters with individual moves and all of the flair and excitement that the Wu-Tang Clan is known for.

Turok: Rage Wars

Game Description: In a twist on its predecessors, Turok: Rage Wars ditches some of the involved storyline to bring you more unadulterated combat. Start in Scenario mode, as you try to unlock 14 different characters in your training for battle. With 19 ranks to achieve, 25 player skins to unlock, and 50 medals to attain, you’ve certainly got your work cut out for you. There are 17 playable characters in all, as well as 13 different Universal power-ups this game isn’t going to get boring any time soon.

Turok: Rage Wars – Review

Actually the third release bearing the Turok name, Rage Wars unlike its two previous efforts, jettisons the traditional one-player mode for full-featured multiplayer options instead. That's not to say that there isn't any semblance of a single-player game.

Turok: Rage Wars – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Turok: Rage Wars – Second Opinion

Well first off, being the defensive player that I am I take issue with the design of the levels as well as Chi's "cowardly tactics" comment. I like wide open areas that allow for some degree of hiding and I wasn't thrilled by the fact that I couldn't go too many steps in some levels without running into another player or opponent. The other thing is the sheer monotony of the single player. Don't get me wrong it is functional but it's obviously been made for those who couldn't get enough of four-player GoldenEye 007 and Quake 64 II and are dying to build up their skills here and later show them off against friends.

House of the Dead 2

Game Description: Prepare to send the undead back to the afterlife in this sequel to the arcade hit The House of the Dead, featuring all new gameplay modes and detailed graphics. Blast your way through six levels of intense action. Tons of branching paths offer the ultimate in replayability.

House of the Dead 2 – Second Opinion

I'll say one thing for House Of The Dead 2, it's easy to get into. Who needs a training mode in a game where you just point and shoot? I will argue for the addictiveness of the game because I think it is more so than Chi did.

House of the Dead 2 – Review

The home version of House Of The Dead 2 is a pixel-perfect console port of Sega's popular arcade gore-fest franchise and as far as light-gun shooters go today, it's as straight forward as it gets. You won't find heated 2-player competition like in Point Blank, no ducking feature like in Time Crisis, or any attribute build-ups like in Elemental Gearbots.

House of the Dead 2 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence
