Future Tactics: The Uprising – Review

Ah, Future Tactics … currently a red-headed stepchild of the videogame review world. Saddled with poor cover art and positioned as a budget release, nearly every write-up I've read takes delight in putting it down, many of them aggressively. Not being independently wealthy, I held off on a purchase myself until I saw a demo running.

Future Tactics: The Uprising

Game Description: The future looks grim for humans unless you've got what it takes to save the world. In Future Tactics: The Uprising you can lead your team of rag-tag human survivors against the multi-dimensional creature overlords who have taken over Earth. Game focuses on action, not stats, and the terrain is reformed as you attack blasting holes in walls, making craters out of meadows and sending boulders flying like toys. Customizable 2-player battle mode lets you modify handicaps, power-ups and victory conditions. Or play 19-level story mode and earn points to upgrade to more powerful weapons.

Far Cry – Review

Far Cry doesn't have an original bone anywhere in its well-sculpted body. Blasting my way across a tropical archipelago, I kept getting a sense of deja vu, as if I'd visited these places and shot these people before. It just hadn't been anywhere near as pretty in the past.

Far Cry – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence

Far Cry

Game Description: A huge, open FPS that takes place in an island paradise, featuring enemies that work as a unit and sprawling, open-ended environments., Help Jack Carver save a mysterious woman and escape from a strange island in Far Cry, one of the most impressive first person shooter games of all time.

Red Dead Revolver – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Red Dead Revolver – Review

It's been a long, hard road for Red Dead Revolver. Starting life as a game in Capcom's stables, it was headed for the glue factory before Rockstar came along and gave it a second chance. With all the ups and downs on its way to retail, it became a real underdog of the industry, with scores of people wanting to see it overcome the odds and succeed. I'm glad to say that the game's well-wishers should be pleased with the final product-in my opinion, Sam Houser's rescue efforts have paid off in spades.

Red Dead Revolver

Game Description: A blazing arcade-style third person game fueled by precision gunplay, Red Dead Revolver is a classic tale of vengeance on the untamed frontier. The addictively fun, innovative combat scheme rewards accurate and ruthless elimination of backwater lowlifes. Ride down outlaws on horseback, fights bloody duels aboard trains, command stagecoaches and more in your quest for justice. Punctuated with dark humor and filled with the elements that make the Wild West so compelling, Red Dead Revolver's story is told through full motion cutscenes and breathtaking in-game visuals.

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast – Second Opinion

If Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is "a beacon of light" as Keith calls it, I don't want to follow. This game should change its subtitle from "Jedi Outcast" to "Faces of Death" because it isn't so much an interactive adventure set in the Star Wars universe as it is the most elaborate and punishing three-dimensional mousetrap ever conceived.
