Oni – Review

Right from the start, I sensed something was wrong. I think in any game, if you find yourself dead within the first five minutes of playing, that's a bad sign. That's exactly what happened to me in Oni.

Starlancer – Review

Despite the fun of the intense, Star Wars-like battles and the small degree of strategy involved in some missions, Starlancer gives itself a black eye through numerous glaring flaws.

Triple Play 2001 – Consumer Guide

Parents needn't worry as it's cleaner than the real sport. Roberto Alomar doesn't spit on umps, and Albert Belle is well behaved. Baseball fans will likely be tempted by EA Sports' promise of playing as some of baseball's legendary players, but since they are only available to use in the […]

Played from a diagonal three-quarter view perspective, the most surprising thing about Diablo II is its simple and console-like gameplay.

Crazy Taxi – Second Opinion

Crazy Taxi's go-anywhere and go-through-anything policy made for a wild ride the first couple of days; but even that got old after going through the same old locations in the San Francisco-esque city you start in.
