WinBack: Covert Operations – Review

Click here to read reviewWinback may lack the team strategy elements of Rainbow Six, but what it does have is an innovative control scheme that maximizes the Nintendo 64 controller capabilities and allows for what I consider, for the first-time, the ability to manipulate a videogame character with real-world stealth techniques that are practically accurate.

Grandia – Review

The battle system in Grandia is one of the best I've ever seen and this is all the more impressive when one considers that the game's two years old now.

Knockout Kings 2000 (PlayStation) – Review

KK2000 plays like a no-nonsense, yet full-featured interpretation of boxing. If you've ever seen it in the ring, you can probably do it in the game (with the exception of having some idiot parachuting into the ring and, thankfully, the patented Tyson-ear chomp).

Knockout Kings 2000 (PlayStation) – Second Opinion

I agree with Chi here, in fact there isn't much I can find to disagree with. The legendary boxers are represented here much more faithfully than in the N64 version and the extras on the disc (boxer bios and 'classic fights') are pretty slick and are welcome additions. As Chi mentioned, this version is much more of a simulation and those of you who read my N64 review will know that the lack of this feature was mostly responsible for my low overall rating.

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing – Second Opinion

I can't disagree with any parts of Chi's review. As arcade boxing games go, I really thought only Nintendo could effectively create unique and oddball boxers in a great playing boxing game, but in this case, Midway has done a superb job in matching Nintendo's best efforts.

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing – Review

Through wildly imaginative characterizations that has more personality than Don King hyping his latest promotion, Rumble makes it easy to forget all the technology in favor of a vivid boxing microcosm. Rumble is a world that comes complete with heated ring rivalries, larger than life egos, and trash-talking bravado worthy of Mike Tyson after one of his 'patented' first round knockout (remember those?).

Pokémon & Transformers: Different Times. Same Crappy Movie.

When the curtain came up, all the hundreds of little tykes shut their yappers (just kidding!) and Pikachu's face blared on the giant screen, one memory shot into my head, Transformers: The Movie.
