Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball – Review

On paper, pinball sounds like an endurance test of the most banal kind. In practice, however, the game is brought to life by the pings, dings, numbers, lights, and everything else that makes the player feel like they're somehow "winning." It's man and machine in noisy harmony, and it's great. Well, great enough to make us forget we're just flicking a metal ball up a sloped table-top for as long as possible.

Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball

Game Description:  Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball revolutionizes the game of pinball by including themed multi-level tables, unique, challenging table missions, and exciting multiplayer mini-games.

EyeToy: Play – Second Opinion

Chris is right in theory. The EyeToy and EyeToy: Play have the potential to be "the killer app that can draw people who have never played a videogame in their life before towards the PlayStation 2." But in practice, there are still some problems preventing both the peripheral and the game from becoming a revolution in the way we play games.

Firefighter F.D. 18 – Review

What's going on with Konami? Their wavy-line symbol logo on a box used to mean that you could buy that game with complete confidence, knowing that no matter what it was, it would be a top-quality product good for hours and hours of playtime. These days, that peace of mind is long gone.

Lifeline

Game Description: In the first-ever voice activated action-adventure, work together with Rio by verbally guiding her through this heart-pounding adventure., Put down the controller and speak up! In the first-ever voice activated action-adventure game, players will work together with the main character Rio by verbally guiding her through this heart-pounding adventure. Compatible with any USB headset peripheral, LifeLine's unprecedented technology features voice-recognition of over 5,000 words and 100,000 phrases such as Shoot! Run! and Dodge and reload.

Lifeline – Review

Lifeline is a great idea. Not just a good or unusually creative one, but a truly great one. The player takes on the role of an "operator" trapped in a room on an orbiting space hotel. Aliens have invaded this hotel, and the only way to take action is by helping Rio, a waitress who survived the invasion. In front of you are a computer terminal with access to mechanical systems and a viewscreen employing countless security cameras.

Lifeline – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Viewtiful Joe – Second Opinion

Joe's creator, Atsushi Inaba, wanted Team Viewtiful to produce a game "portraying beauty in fighting." They have succeeded. Viewtiful Joe is an aesthetic marvel and, for the most part, a triumphant return for a long-neglected genre.

Culdcept – Review

I love the escapism and adventure that comes with today's videogames, yet there's still much appeal in the original definition's approach to chance, skill, and competition. Eschewing practically all pretense and current trends, Omiyasoft's Culdcept is a new member of a rare species—an offering that combines both types by acknowledging the video but emphasizing the game.
