INTERVIEW - Niel Wiser, President & Founder of UltraPrime Network
Articles Archive | 01/19/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The Evolvers: A well selected name for what could constitute an entirely new perspective on massively multiplayer gaming. For years there have been videogames that have attempted to mimic the look and feel of Hollywood: vampire slayers, star trekkers, bounty hunters “ slews of voice actors trying to mimic other people in the name of a good videogame. It's amazing how rarely they succeed. Similarly, there are times when storylines built with the controls of a console or played out on the screen of the PC are used to produce a feature film. Resident Evil. Final Fantasy.

Zapper
game: Zapper
review | 12/22/02 | Jason Frank
We sent Jason to review both the GC and GBA versions of Zapper and what did we get? One review. It figures -- Jason can be difficult like that sometimes. But we can sympathize: It\'s hard to deal with mediocre games that cover well-trod territory and fail to really stand out in any way. Click here for the whole sad story.

Robotech: Battlecry Review (PS2)
game: Robotech: Battlecry
review | 12/10/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
TDK Mediactive has singlehandedly made Robotech fans very happy this fall. Their take on the franchise has been very successful. Robotech: Battlecry is stylish and fun to play. Unfortunately, this is a season swamped with giant robot games, and the biggest thing going for this one is the story. Robotech fans, check this out. Click!

Myst III: Exile Review (PS2)
game: Myst III: Exile
review | 12/01/02 | Monica Hafer
Ubi Soft has brought the venerable Myst series to console systems, and, as anyone familiar with the franchise would guess, the style and focus of gameplay doesn\'t quite jive with what most console gamers expect. Many reviewers have reacted to Myst III: Exile like our reviewer, Eric. (Click here to read his review of Myst III: Exile for Xbox.) The pacing and mechanics of the game are unusual on the console, but this is still one of the most popular franchises in the history of gaming. So Monica, a long time Myst fan, reviewed the PS2 version of the game and gives us the other side of things, showing for the right gamers, Myst has still got it. Click here.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder Review
game: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder
review | 11/24/02 | Eric Qualls
om Clancy is one of the season\'s hot properties, and Island Thunder, the expansion pack for his firmly instantiated Ghost Recon, is another release that doesn\'t disappoint. Ubi Soft has done right by the \"Clancyverse\", adding a whole new story and eight new missions to an already successful game.

Red Faction 2 Review
game: Red Faction 2
review | 11/08/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
THQ has scored more than an ordinary hit with Red Faction 2. Building on the original installment of the series, RF2 offers an amazing story of the kind we don\'t often see in videogames. Sure, the Geo Mod technology is still there, and still fun as hell, but this one is about telling a good tale, and we commend its success.

What's in a Game? A Linguistic History of
Articles Archive | 10/09/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Here at Gamesfirst! we like to talk about games--interactive art, we'll tell you, and the future of art and storytelling”a force more powerful and more frightening than its parent, the movie, or its grandparent, the stage”both terrifying in their own way, in their own time. But did you ever wonder where the word "videogame"came from? "Video" meets "game"--it sounds like a pretty straightforward etymology to get to the word that brings us all so much joy, but what we have here is a strange union between two ancient words who's roots stretch across recorded time”and further, in fact, into the dark night of prerecorded time.

Tenchu 3: Wrath of Heaven Preview
game: Tenchu 3: Wrath of Heaven
preview | 09/04/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
Activision will give us another installment in the venerable Tenchu series. Tenchu 3: Wrath of Heaven continues the story of Tenchu: Stealth Assassins, putting you back into the shoes of Ayame and Rikimaru. It looks cool, packs a load of new features, and let\'s hope it contains lots of cheesy translations. Click here.

Atari Revival Review
game: Atari Revival
review | 08/25/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Nostalgia gaming is a hot topic these days. We hear from gamers who insist the old-school was the best school of gaming. If you\'re one of these retro gaming addicts, check out Atari Revival -- it packs Combat, Missle Command and Warlords into a pretty new graphical skin but keeps the same old-school gameplay. Click here for the story.

Test Drive Review (Xbox)
game: Test Drive
review | 07/18/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Va, va, vroom, Test Drive is a pretty package. Lots of multiplayer modes and tons of cars to drive give it some quality bang for your buck. Take some spins around the track, admire the tight controls, and get your fender ripped off by a two foot tall fern. It\'s got issues. Get the whole story -- click here.

No One Lives Forever Review (PS2)
game: No One Lives Forever
review | 07/03/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Sierra brings its classic FPS franchise to the PS2, and all we can say is that Cate deserved better. No One Lives Forever is a disappointing console port, right along the lines of Half Life for the PS2. You can\'t beat the story and some of the gameplay in NOLF, but it is severely flawed.
