Shooting

Jet Force Gemini

Game Description: After seeing his parents murdered by space pirates, Juno swore to fight evil in all its manifestations. Displaying lightning-quick reflexes and extraordinary self-possession, Juno is known throughout the Union for keeping calm in the midst of the most ferocious firefight. When drones stealthily board the Jet Force's scout craft, Juno provides cover so his comrades can escape. Juno is one of three characters you can play as in Jet Force Gemini. The other two are Lupus the doggie, and Vela the pretty-but-tough space adventuress.

Jet Force Gemini – Review

Almost from the beginning, people who saw the character designs were scratching their heads. Jet Force Gemini was supposed to be a juxtaposition of cute mascot-like characters and violent, gory action, but it never worked out. Even after they were redone to be more mainstream, they still looked unnatural and downright creepy. I was grateful that I spent most of the game looking at their backs but when it came to Vela (in her too-short skirt), I couldn't shake this uneasy feeling I had while playing as her.

Jet Force Gemini – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Jet Force Gemini – Second Opinion

Yet the thing that singly bugged me the most was the graphics or, rather, the overall art direction that Rare took. Yes, like Dale mentioned, the graphics are technically amazing and push the N64 to likes of which the system has never seen. But stylistically, the game is a mess.

Duke Nukem: Zero Hour – Review

Duke Nukem may have entered the gaming scene as kiddy shareware fodder for the PC, but somewhere along the way, he evolved into a technologically advanced first-person shooter (FPS) with a politically incorrect bad-boy attitude that brought him recognition. Since then, developers have tried unsuccessfully to plug his mug into more lucrative, mainstream console systems, some of which came in the form of third-person auctioneers.

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

Duke Nukem: Zero Hour – Second Opinion

Duke Nukem is an aged marketing concept, where a hulking guy destroys everything in his path and highlights the destruction with cool one-liners. It was worked to perfection in the 80s when Arnold Schwartzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were dominating the box office. But in the 1990s, even Sly and Arnold have conceded to the times and have changed accordingly.

Aliens Versus Predator – Second Opinion

When I found out Chi was going to review this game, I laughed. Movie licenses have had a history of failing miserably when ported over to video games and with the exception of GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64, I had little reason to believe this trend was going to change.

Aliens Versus Predator

Game Description: Aliens vs. Predator offers 40 levels of terrifying futuristic environments in which you choose to be a Colonial Marine, a Predator, or an Alien. It's "survival of the fittest" for your species, as you make your way through responsive game screens that adjust to your actions. Your environments range from planetscapes to colonial bases, where one wrong move could turn you from hunter to prey.
