Silent Scope – Second Opinion

What really kills me is that this game could have really opened up some new possibilities in narrative and action. Can you imagine if Silent Scope was based on a similar plot device like the Hitchcock classic "Rear Window?"

Rumble Racing

Game Description: Rumble Racing is over-the-top combat meets NASCAR-style racing in this brilliant blend of two unlikely styles. In Championship mode, you’ll duke it out with other cars in a series of heats to determine who wins the five championship cups at stake. Along the way, you’ll unlock 12 of the 15 tracks that can be played in Single Race mode. Completing Championship mode will earn you the right to try your hand at Stunt mode, a timed event in which you must pull off crazy tricks. There are plenty of weapons and power-ups to keep the combat junkie happy, and the racing action is superb.

Rumble Racing – Review

Its pretty rare that a racing game comes out which is different enough to perk my interest. While Im not the worlds biggest racing fan, I do enjoy the scent of a freshly burned patch of rubber every now and then. Unfortunately, with the overabundance of driving games available on practically any system out there, the genre seems to have become quite over saturated from where Im standing.

Rumble Racing – Second Opinion

Whether it was intentional or not, Rumble Racing reminded me of a digital Matchbox racing game. The selection of cars seems to be pulled right out of a Matchbox toy set; each car looks like an over-sized version of the die-cast metal hotrods I collected as a kid. The stunts and over-the-top tracks all add to the extreme feel, making Rumble Racing a nice break from the likes of Driving Emotion Type-S or Gran Turismo 3: A-spec. Unfortunately, its flaws were too great to be hidden by any feelings of nostalgia I may have had.

Sega Smash Pack Volume 1

Game Description: If you’re just not getting enough variety in your video game diet, look no further than the all-inclusive Sega Smash Pack Volume 1. You’ll get immediate access to a dozen classic games, including: Golden AxeAltered Beast, Columns, Sonic the Hedgehog, Revenge of Shinobi, Streets of Rage 2, Shining Force, Wrestle War, Vectorman and Phantasy Star II. The two most modern inclusions are the Dreamcast version of Virtua Cop 2 (previously available only in Japan) and Sega Swirl.

Sega Smash Pack Volume 1 – Second Opinion

Like Brad, I have issues with Sega Smash Pack Volume 1. There are some true standouts in Streets Of Rage 2, Shining Force, Sonic The Hedgehog, and Virtua Cop 2 (even without light-gun support); all are shining examples of the Sega at its best in the pre-PlayStation age. The rest, however, are either throwaways like Sega Swirl and Wrestle War or games that do not stand the test of time like Phantasy Star II and Altered Beast. This has always been a sore spot of mine with these compilation releases.

Sega Smash Pack Volume 1 – Review

The Sega Smash Pack: Volume 1 is Segas version of the old-time compilation disc trend made popular recently by companies with a rich history of games—such as Namco, Konami and Midway. The disc includes no less than nine certified, triple-A, 16-bit classics out of the Genesis era as well as three other miscellaneous titles to add to the overall value of the purchase. The games listed on the back of the case are practically a "whos who" of the greatest cartridges available for Segas renowned machine.

RayCrisis: Series Termination – Second Opinion

I know that neither my playing experience nor playing acumen with side-scrolling shooters can compare with Ben's, but I know a below average shooter when I see one, and RayCrisis: Series Termination is such a game. It does have a few things going for it. I found Taito's gimmick to give players a say in determining the length of each level to be an interesting one and the graphics were quite nice.
