Lowrider

Game Description: The first video game of its kind, Lowrider simulates the American phenomenon of low riding - sprucing up cars, lowering the floor to the legal limit, and outfitting them with major hydraulics, booming sound systems, and detailed artistry to compete against other vehicles in hops, dances and cruise shows. Lowrider enables single and multi-players to compete in tournament and street events in five U.S. cities. Lowrider offers an authentic experience with 18 different vehicles, 18 categories of car upgrades, and a custom paint tool for personalized hood ornamentation.

Lowrider – Review

The PlayStation 2 may be last in terms of this console generations' raw power, but nobody can touch its software diversity. For gamers like me who crave the offbeat and unique, the choices available on Sony machines have spanned an incredible range; everything from the most standard genre offerings to games that are so deeply niche that you can hardly believe someone invested enough time and money to create them. They may not all be good, but I'm glad that they're there. Variety is indeed the spice of gaming, and going strictly by that criteria, nothing's spicier than Lowrider.

Viewtiful Joe

Game Description: In this fighting action game from Capcom USA Studio 4's Atsushi Inaba, players take control of an average, well, Joe as he's transported into his favorite movie. In his new environment, Joe discovers he has all the abilities of Hollywood action-hero when he becomes Viewtiful Joe. Using cel-shading techniques, VJ boasts a unique visual style that blends colorful 3D environments with a twisted take on traditional 2D gameplay. Joe's power stems from his skillful martial arts attacks, high-flying acrobatics, and time-bending special effects. Players can slow down or speed up time when attacking/ dodging enemies, as well as zoom in on the action to execute different attacks.

Viewtiful Joe – Review

Capcom's Viewtiful Joe is an all-too-knowing parody of genre cliches in various forms of entertainment, from videogames to television to film. It's exactly the kind of game where one might expect a hearty wink after an enemy says, "Who do you think you are, some kind of Rock Man?"

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand – Review

I can do without a lot of the pseudo-religious preachiness that certain games inflict on the player in the form of hefty non-interactive dialogue. While a game can spout out socially relevant and morally suggestive dialogue all it wants, it's just as easy for gamers to impatiently scroll through the text while letting their eyes wander around the room and not paying any attention to the message that the game is so painstakingly trying to convey.

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand

Game Description: Playing Boktai requires sunlight. The solar sensor responds to the player's environment and reflects the amount of solar energy (sunlight) in the game at real time. When there is strong sunlight, solar energy charges up quickly. When weak, it charges up slowly. Sunlight is required mainly to charge energy to the solar gun which is the player's only weapon, and to fight the boss at the Pile Driver. And during moments other than these, the sensor will detect solar energy, causing the game content to change. In Boktai, with the real time clock inside the cartridge, game contents change over time from daytime to nighttime, just like actual time in our world. The Undead that are active during the night stay quiet in the dungeon during the day.
