Shooting

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.

Duke Nukem: Zero Hour

Game Description: The greatest action hero in gaming is back in Duke Nukem Zero Hour, exclusively for N64!

Duke Nukem: Zero Hour – Consumer Guide

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

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.

Aliens Versus Predator – Review

Only in this day and age could a game of such amalgamated ideas like Aliens Versus Predator (AvP) exist. But did the game take its creative direction from the six movies featuring the two sci-fi antagonists, or was it the never-developed screenplay for the vapor film (of the same name) that never materialized? What about the series of Dark Horse comics? Then again, wasn't there already an AvP game for the underachieving Atari Jaguar system?

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

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.

Kingpin: Life of Crime – Consumer Guide

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

Kingpin: Life of Crime – Review

The so-called mature premise of Kingpin revolves around a fallen gangster who is now out for revenge and domination over the underworld. No heroic macho lead character or buxom heroine here, just a thug out to do no good. While politically incorrect, it's certainly conceptually interesting and has a similar appeal to films like GoodFellas and Pulp Fiction, which also revolve around bad people doing bad things.
