World Series Baseball 2K1 – Consumer Guide

Baseball purists will not like this game. It has player stats and updated team rosters, but the non-interactive gameplay and its dearth of features make it one to pass up. Arcade baseball fans may prefer this game's less cerebral approach to the game, but it is such a poor game, […]

World Series Baseball 2K1 – Review

Seaman is a tough game to review. Since the overwhelming majority of titles released these days are rehashes of games that have been done time and time again, a rare gem brimming with originality is something to be cherished.

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.
