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 – 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.

Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling 2 – Consumer Guide

Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling 2 is an accomplished bowling simulation—thorough in its design and reasonably fun to play. You can't ask for much more than what this game delivers, aside from more appealing graphics and less-glitchy gameplay. The game also loses some shelf life due to the nature of its […]

Zombie Revenge – Second Opinion

When I first saw the score Ben gave Zombie Revenge, I thought two things: The new guy is out to prove something and he didn't bother to play through the game thoroughly. That's because I had relatively high expectations ever since I heard that Sega was going to be publishing it.

Zombie Revenge – Review

No game echoes this sentiment clearer than Sega's Zombie Revenge, a shoot-'em-up, beat-'em-up arcade brawler with zombies and gore to spare. Though the game does have its moments, there's nothing here that hasn't been tried before. Zombie Revenge just changes the scenery a bit, adding a Resident Evil-esque theme to a pretty basic formula.
