NFL GameDay 2001 – Second Opinion

As I haven't played NFL GameDay 2000 or any prior version of GameDay, I cannot honestly compare it to previous efforts. What I can do is agree with everything else Ben has to say about the game, but I'll try to be brief to avoid parroting his every word. The two major points of the game that I have the most problems with are the graphics and gameplay.

NFL GameDay 2001 – Review

It's very difficult to think of NFL GameDay 2001 as a new release, because it's just a rehash of last year's NFL GameDay 2000. Actually, it's not even a rehash, because "rehash" implies "revision."

MLB 2001 – Second Opinion

This could have been a solid baseball game in terms of graphics, control and gameplay, but in the end, the game simply lacks polish. On the paper, I'm sure the developers felt the many features included in this year's entry would make it a serious contender, but the final results are so poorly executed that it has the same empty feel of walking a runner home to end the game.

MLB 2001

Game Description: MLB 2001 is here and you've never seen anything like it. Dozens of new camera angles zoom-ins and cut aways along with Vin Scully and Dave Campbell in the booth you'll be treated to the most authentic TV style present ation ever seen. New stadium graphics include all of the latest stadiums like S afeco Field in Seattle PacBell Park in San Francisco and Comerica Park in Detroit. New player models are scaled to their actual height weight and body styles as well as featuring the actual player faces right down to their facial hair. An all new franchise mode gives you the chance to build your team into a powerhouse. All this and more than 250 personalized batting stances and pitching motions work together to make MLB 2001 the PlayStation baseball video game for the next millennium.

The Legend of Dragoon Second Opinion

I genuinely liked the game and believe it could have earned a higher rating had Sony created a more original set of characters, stronger storyline and lost many of the clearly Final Fantasy VII inspired themes.

The Legend of Dragoon Review

When I first started playing The Legend of Dragoon, I told myself, "OK, when I write up my review, I won't focus on its similarity to Final Fantasy VII (FF7) like everyone else has." Well, here I am writing my review, and all I can think about is its similarity to FF7, and how stale and unoriginal the whole experience is.

The Legend of Dragoon

Game Description: A four-disc RPG epic, The Legend of Dragoon is set in a time of swords, magic, and dragons. Ten thousand years prior, the Dragon War pitted Dragoons—humans with the power to control dragons—against Enslavers, magicians who sought to enslave the humans. Now Dart, a young warrior, is on a quest to find the demon that killed his parents.

Syphon Filter 2 – Review

The original Syphon Filter was an all out mission-based action title that had a lot going for it to separate it from the pack. Using an over-the-shoulder perspective, it placed you in the role of Gabriel Logan (Gabe to his friends) as he chases after members of a terrorist group and tried to prevent them from destroying the city. Plus, while hes at it, he had to capture a top-secret biological agent called the Syphon Filter. The game hinged on me completing a series of main objectives (one per level), but in order to meet those objectives I had to complete smaller, more specific tasks in a predetermined order. These tasks ranged from hostage rescues to bomb defusals and, to 989 Studios' credit, they were meshed seamlessly into the overall storyline of the game.
