Dino Crisis 2

Game Description: Dino Crisis 2 picks up where the original left off. While continuing Dr. Kirk’s research into Third Energy, the government has opened a rift in time. Now, an elite team of operatives must travel back in time and rescue any survivors and recover the Third Energy device. You take control of Regina and Dylan as they use their special talents and maybe a weapon or two to get through the mission. Along the way, they will encounter 10 species of dinosaurs that are looking for a human snack. It’s up to you to save the Third Energy device and return home safely in Dino Crisis 2.

Giga Wing

Game Description: A mysterious object called the Medallion has been fought over by good and evil for thousands of years. It's up to four courageous fighters to seek out the Medallion and destroy this agent of power that has been blamed for every war that's ever been fought. You're one of these noble men who've been selected to execute this mission. Jump into the cockpit of your specialized fighter plane and take on all comers, as you journey towards your toughest opponent, the Medallion itself.

Giga Wing – Second Opinion

Like Ben, I was eager to get my hands on a mindless 2-D shooter like Giga Wing. It was supposed to be a welcome break from the huge involving RPGs I've been playing of late. I never intended to scrutinize Giga Wing too severely as I usually lower my expectations for arcade ports and this type of game in particular. That's what makes the game such a sad case—it only needed to be at least average to garner a positive review from me, and it couldn't even do that.

Giga Wing – Review

The generically titled Giga Wing—an overhead perspective, vertically scrolling airplane shoot-fest—is another console release in the same vein as Strider 2. Once again, Capcom is responsible (in this case I would call them the guilty party), only this time Sega's Dreamcast is the target.

Strider 2 – Second Opinion

Like Ben, I enjoyed growing up in the golden age of arcades and have many fond memories of days riding to my local 7-11 to play the latest cabinet, or many evenings spent trying to connive my dad into taking me to Chuck E. Cheese only to spend three hours there without touching the pizza. However, the good feeling of those golden years gone by don't really carry over to the current incarnation of Strider 2. Based on my memories of the original arcade release and the nearly flawless Genesis port of the first Strider, I was ready to put my money down sight unseen and trust in Capcom to produce something as solid and fun to play as the first game. However, I was quite disappointed.

Strider 2 – Review

Everyone knows that 2D is Capcom's speciality, and truthfully, I've never seen such an exciting combination of visuals as in Strider 2. People used to talk about how PlayStation couldn't handle 2D graphics as well as Saturn could, but I'm here to say that Saturn could have never handled Strider 2. I've never seen better graphics on PlayStation.

Strider 2

Game Description: Strider 2 is a side-scrolling slice- and dice-'em-up that moves at a deliberately fast pace. Playing as Strider Hiryu, your moves are pretty simple slash, slide, and wall climbing which lets you concentrate more on having fun. Your goal is to make it through five major levels each capped with a deadly boss, and still have all your arms, legs, and personal effects intact. Included with Strider 2  is the original Strider, which many of us spent all our paper route earnings on when it ruled the arcades in the late 1980s.
