Unreal Tournament (PlayStation 2)

Game Description: Tackle the challenges of Unreal Tournament on the PlayStation 2. Blow the opposition to tiny bits in a Deathmatch or become part of team and take control of the map in a Domination game. For something a little different, play Assault, where one team is trying to defend a base and the other is trying to capture it. Surviving to fight another day is only half the battle in Unreal Tournament.

Unreal Tournament (PlayStation 2) – Review

It's clear that Infogrames wanted to take advantage of the hype surrounding the PlayStation 2 launch, and it had to strike while the iron was hot. That meant that like every other publisher under the sun, it needed a port or an update to an already popular game—and Unreal Tournament was as good a choice as any.

Driver 2

Game Description: Fine-tuning the white-knuckled car chase formula of its predecessor, Driver 2 features more of the same high-speed, inner-city vehicular mayhem, and casts players once again as Tanner, a hard-boiled undercover cop who's posing as a badass getaway driver—this time, to stop an international mob war. With computer-animated cinematic sequences doing the lion's share of the storytelling, players must guide Tanner through more than 40 action-packed missions in four different city settings, this time on foot—which primarily allows Tanner to carjack other vehicles—as well as behind the wheel.

Driver 2 – Review

Flash forward to present day, and I find theres bit of irony and vindication. For the sequel, Driver 2: The Wheelman Is Back, is now being universally panned by gamers and press alike for the same reasons that Dale and I pointed out two years ago over the original. (Just goes to show you how hype can cloud ones judgment.)

Koudelka – Review

Koudelka first gained media attention at the 1999 E3 show. Anyone who saw its looping demos admitted that the game showed promise. It sported impressive CG graphics, rich prerendered backgrounds and was made by a collection of developers who once worked at Squaresoft—all the things needed to garner some attention and positive early reviews.

Koudelka – Second Opinion

What makes survival horror games so annoying is how exploring and finding items in the prerendered backgrounds almost always proves to be a rigid and awkward experience. Koudelka makes this quality about a thousand times worse by adding random attacks—more typically found in RPGs—to the mix.

Koudelka

Game Description: On Halloween, 1898, a troubled yet determined medium named Koudelka is driven by the spirit of an unknown woman to the ominous Nemeton monastery. Once a place of worship, it evolved into a prison where the sentenced died horrible deaths. There, along with Edward, the adventurer, and James, the bishop, she will discover horror, danger, and adventure in the ruined and haunted abbey. Either they will solve their mysterious quests, or they will die trying.
