Triple Play 2001 – Consumer Guide

Triple Play 2001 – Review

Like most of this year's baseball releases, Triple Play 2001 seems to be stuck in mediocrity. It could be argued that this is a case of the PlayStation's limits finally being met, but I think it is far more likely that developers have simply given up on doing anything even remotely interesting on the five-year old console in favor of its new big brother, the PlayStation 2.

Triple Play 2001 – Second Opinion

This title could have been released two years ago, and I still would have proclaimed the graphics and animation to be hideously shoddy. If this is the best they can do with 32-bit, 3D graphics, I'd gladly see the return of sprite-based 16-bit graphics for baseball games that I can recall as being much more attractive.

Triple Play 2001

Game Description: Get ready to take on the greatest baseball heroes of all time in Triple Play 2001 from EA Sports. Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, and Ted Williams are among the classic players you can control in this realistic baseball game. Play solo against Triple Play 2001's enhanced artificial intelligence (AI) or go head-to-head against your buddies. For added realism, experience the game from either the behind-the-fielder view or the outfielder's perspective. The improved AI offers more strategic hitting and player and pitcher substitutions. The umpire even argues and gives high fives. Great plays are rewarded with unlocked extras and cheats, including special players and power-ups. Triple Play 2001 features an exclusive 500 Home Run Club license.

Diablo II – Second Opinion

Junk food. You yearn for it, you stuff yourself with it—salivating with each morsel—then hours later you end up with a sick, empty feeling in your stomach and a funky taste in your mouth. In a strange way, the more I played Diablo II, the more I believed it was interactive junk food.

Diablo II – Review

For the uninitiated, Diablo II is the sequel to the popular medieval RPG title that once again cast players in the role of an adventurer out to put an end to the newly resurrected Prince of Darkness, Diablo. Played from a diagonal three-quarter view perspective, the most surprising thing about Diablo II is its simple and console-like gameplay.

Diablo II – Consumer Guide

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

Diablo II

Game Description: In Diablo II, players return to a world of dark fantasy. As one of five distinct character types, players will explore the world of Diablo II, journey across distant lands, fight new villains, discover new treasures, and uncover ancient mysteries. The Collectors Edition includes the four-CD game, a 24-minute Diablo II movie on DVD and in letter-box format, the 70-minute soundtrack, and the D&D Diablo II pen-and-paper box set for playing D&D in the Diablo II setting.

Crazy Taxi – Second Opinion

Crazy Taxi's go-anywhere and go-through-anything policy made for a wild ride the first couple of days; but even that got old after going through the same old locations in the San Francisco-esque city you start in.

Crazy Taxi – Review

Originally a stand-alone arcade game designed to be played at amusement centers, the home translation of Crazy Taxi is meant to be a short, but wild ride through a fictional city that somewhat resembles San Francisco. As the title implies, the object of the game is to pick up passengers, cab them to their requested destinations, and make the most money in the process.
