Dino Crisis 2

Game Description: Dino Crisis 2 picks up where the original left off. While continuing Dr. Kirk’s research into Third Energy, the government has opened a rift in time. Now, an elite team of operatives must travel back in time and rescue any survivors and recover the Third Energy device. You take control of Regina and Dylan as they use their special talents and maybe a weapon or two to get through the mission. Along the way, they will encounter 10 species of dinosaurs that are looking for a human snack. It’s up to you to save the Third Energy device and return home safely in Dino Crisis 2.

Dino Crisis 2 – Second Opinion

My feeling on Dino Crisis 2 is that it's too little, too late. I have a good respect for the original because it tried to do a few things differently then most survival-horror titles, and while it wasn't anything earth-shattering, I still appreciated the effort.

Dino Crisis 2 – Review

For such a young genre, it has quickly gained a feeling of "been there, done that" in the few years since its explosion onto the scene. In fact, looking back at the list of games that qualify as survival horror, I'd pick only three as being the best representatives of what this type of game has to offer: Resident Evil for starting off the craze, Silent Hill for making things truly chilling and Dino Crisis 2 for putting an entirely different spin on how the game can be played.

Diablo II – Second Opinion

Junk food. You yearn for it, you stuff yourself with it—salivating with each morsel—then hours later you end up with a sick, empty feeling in your stomach and a funky taste in your mouth. In a strange way, the more I played Diablo II, the more I believed it was interactive junk food.

Diablo II

Game Description: In Diablo II, players return to a world of dark fantasy. As one of five distinct character types, players will explore the world of Diablo II, journey across distant lands, fight new villains, discover new treasures, and uncover ancient mysteries. The Collectors Edition includes the four-CD game, a 24-minute Diablo II movie on DVD and in letter-box format, the 70-minute soundtrack, and the D&D Diablo II pen-and-paper box set for playing D&D in the Diablo II setting.

Diablo II – Review

For the uninitiated, Diablo II is the sequel to the popular medieval RPG title that once again cast players in the role of an adventurer out to put an end to the newly resurrected Prince of Darkness, Diablo. Played from a diagonal three-quarter view perspective, the most surprising thing about Diablo II is its simple and console-like gameplay.

Koudelka – Review

Koudelka first gained media attention at the 1999 E3 show. Anyone who saw its looping demos admitted that the game showed promise. It sported impressive CG graphics, rich prerendered backgrounds and was made by a collection of developers who once worked at Squaresoft—all the things needed to garner some attention and positive early reviews.

Koudelka – Second Opinion

What makes survival horror games so annoying is how exploring and finding items in the prerendered backgrounds almost always proves to be a rigid and awkward experience. Koudelka makes this quality about a thousand times worse by adding random attacks—more typically found in RPGs—to the mix.
