Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat – Review

Looking at recent releases, there must have been some kind of competition among game developers to release B-class adventure games starring female characters. Two discs with cheesy titles hit shelves within a month of each other, and they're very similar in a lot of ways. While Drakan: The Ancients' Gate was first to stores, Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat was right on its heels.

Rumble Racing

Game Description: Rumble Racing is over-the-top combat meets NASCAR-style racing in this brilliant blend of two unlikely styles. In Championship mode, you’ll duke it out with other cars in a series of heats to determine who wins the five championship cups at stake. Along the way, you’ll unlock 12 of the 15 tracks that can be played in Single Race mode. Completing Championship mode will earn you the right to try your hand at Stunt mode, a timed event in which you must pull off crazy tricks. There are plenty of weapons and power-ups to keep the combat junkie happy, and the racing action is superb.

Rumble Racing – Review

Its pretty rare that a racing game comes out which is different enough to perk my interest. While Im not the worlds biggest racing fan, I do enjoy the scent of a freshly burned patch of rubber every now and then. Unfortunately, with the overabundance of driving games available on practically any system out there, the genre seems to have become quite over saturated from where Im standing.

Rumble Racing – Second Opinion

Whether it was intentional or not, Rumble Racing reminded me of a digital Matchbox racing game. The selection of cars seems to be pulled right out of a Matchbox toy set; each car looks like an over-sized version of the die-cast metal hotrods I collected as a kid. The stunts and over-the-top tracks all add to the extreme feel, making Rumble Racing a nice break from the likes of Driving Emotion Type-S or Gran Turismo 3: A-spec. Unfortunately, its flaws were too great to be hidden by any feelings of nostalgia I may have had.

007 Racing

Game Description: Your name is Bond—James Bond. You've got a stable of specially equipped licensed cars from the Bond universe that have been prepared with weapons and gadgets from MI6's infamous Q branch. 007 Racing for PlayStation delivers to game players a unique Bond experience that features over 15 missions of pursuit, evasion, protection, surveillance, and termination—all inspired by unforgettable moments from Bond films. Missions in 007 Racing take place within a new story line that's inspired by scenes and moments of the more memorable Bond films. Also, players will be assisted by—and pitted against—famous characters from Bond films. The game's multiplayer mode offers intense peer-to-peer combat racing.

007 Racing – Review

Electronic Arts, granted the license from MGM, took notice of Bond's affinity for fast cars, and 007 Racing was born. Unfortunately for Electronic Arts and its developer, Eutechnyx, every release that followed Rare's brilliant GoldenEye 007 has proven that the license can only carry a game so far. 007 Racing is a game that barely carries its license and succeeds only in driving it into the ground.

007 Racing – Second Opinion

007 Racing's developer, Eutechnyx, puts the following tag line underneath their logo: "Advanced gaming science." If 007 Racing is any indication of this pretentious moniker, than it's wrong on all counts.
