SOCOM II: US Navy SEALs – Review

Calling SOCOM II a sequel is being generous. The game feels more like a well-conceived expansion pack than an out-and-out new title. Yes, the game features a beefed-up single player campaign, new online maps (along with the ones from the original game), improved graphics, and a much more stringent cheater-catching system, but when one gets right down to it, this is more like SOCOM 1.5 than II.

MechWarrior 3 – Review

From the action-packed opening title sequence to the chattery mission briefings, MechWarrior 3 bristles with life and excitement. Credit much of the liveliness to a proper usage of the Battletech universe.

MechWarrior 3 – Second Opinion

I've been aware of the MechWarrior series since it's inception. I was sans-PC at the time, but I lived a bit of that world through Chi. I was also a huge fan of giant robots, especially Voltron. Controlling a giant robot and taking on giant monsters was a dream of mine always and I was thrilled to hear that that was essentially what I would be doing in MechWarrior. Sure I was disappointed to learn that there was no blazing-sword nor any lion-head attacks available, but the concept of giant robots was still intact.
