MechAssault Preview (Xbox)
game: MechAssault
preview | 09/16/02 | Jason Frank
Microsoft brings us a console version (meaning an original game developed for Xbox) of their award-winning franchise, Mechwarrior. MechAssault brings console gameplay to the series, and that\'s a very good thing. Supporting Xbox LIVE, it\'s only a matter of time before we\'re all piloting big robots. Click here.

UFC Throwdown Review
game: UFC Throwdown
review | 08/25/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Crave Entertainment brings us the latest installment in the UFC series, and fans of the franchise should be pleased with UFC Throwdown. Featuring the same in-depth, strategic fighting system, this is not one of those flashy fighters that zip along at a million miles per hour. This is the thinking feller\'s fighter. Ironic? Click.

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.

Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter Review
game: Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter
review | 06/28/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
Another installment in the Starfighter series, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter manages to make some good additions to the franchise but doesn\'t really make this one feel like an entirely new game. Sure, there are cool Force powers and new ships to fly, but it all feels very familiar. Thank goodness for the cooperative story mode. Click.

Breath of Fire II Review
game: Breath of Fire II
review | 06/23/02 | Matt Baldwin
Capcom brings us another phenomenal RPG for the GBA, and thank goodness. Breath of Fire II is a worthy successor to the franchise. While next-gen RPGs are few and far between, this old-school SNES port packs some classic gameplay in a tidy, pretty, and portable package. Click here.

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Preview
game: Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb
preview | 06/23/02 | Jason Frank
It seems like everyone these days wants to get out the old Indy and dust him off. Spielberg has Harrison Ford all lined up for another flick, not due until 2005, and LucasArts returns to the franchise with Indiana Jones and the Emperor\'s Tomb. So far it\'s looking great, and games might be the perfect vehicle to keep Indy alive and whippin\'. Click.

All Star Baseball 2003 Review (GC)
game: All Star Baseball 2003
review | 06/11/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
A new franchise mode that allows you almost complete freedom and some cool extras make All Star Baseball 2003 the best in the series so far. Acclaim has really outdone themselves with this one. Gamecube owning baseball fans need to check out this bad boy. Click here.

LOTR: The Two Towers Preview (PS2, GBA)
game: LOTR: The Two Towers
preview | 06/11/02 | Monica Hafer
The Lord of the Rings franchise has been fractured -- games are coming out from both Sierra and EA. EA has the movie license, and that will make all the difference. So far The Two Towers looks amazing, what with the hordes of orcs to cut down and the incredible interplay of film footage and game graphics. Click here to be amazed.

World Wrestling Wrestlemania X8 Preview
game: World Wrestling Wrestlemania X8
preview | 06/03/02 | Shawn Rider
Gamecube owners don\'t feel left out. You\'re getting your very own World Wrestling franchise with Wrestlemania X8. Sporting 35 playable wrestlers, 35 match types, and several arenas (Raw, Smackdown, Survivor Series, Wrestlemania, and Summer Slam), this should pack more than a punch. Click here for more.

RTX Red Rock Preview (GC, PC)
game: RTX Red Rock
preview | 06/01/02 | Jason Frank
In a move away from the Star Wars franchise, LucasArts is working on RTX Red Rock, a cool action-adventure title that offers up loads of combat plus a whole bunch of strategic problem-solving. A wide array of tools and gadgets is at your disposal. Now go save the world. Click here for more.

World of Warcraft Preview (PC)
game: World of Warcraft
preview | 06/01/02 | Aaron Stanton
Blizzard will throw their hat into the MMORPG arena with World of Warcraft. Building on the successes of their previous titles, both Warcraft and non-Warcraft franchises, this one is already playing pretty sweet. And then there\'s that top-secret new character race... Click here.

RE Preview (Xbox)
game: RE
preview | 05/30/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
There are a few Xbox exclusive titles that threaten the dominance of key franchises exclusive to other platforms. RE (working title) looks to be a serious rival for that other racing hit GT3. Absolutely stunning graphics and a cool single player sim game should make this a serious hit with the gearheads. Click here.

Unreal Episode II Preview
game: Unreal Episode II
preview | 05/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
UT is the multiplayer game, and for the past while it has overshadowed the single player title that spawned it. This year Unreal Episode II will remind us all just why this franchise became so popular. Insane graphics, great action, and a cool single player adventure make this game one to watch for.

EDITORIAL - Gaming Civilization and Its Discontents
Articles Archive | 01/01/00 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Yesterday, the arcade nearest to my house officially sold its soul”not to the devil, the government, or even a special interest group with some less diabolical agenda. No, it sold out to the thirteen year old mall crowd and their perceived need for franchise-like arcade huts and the seemingly infinite series of genre clones that go along with them. Don't get me wrong, one of the best things about arcades is the fact that they provide you with the opportunity to play games months before they make it to a console, and generally in better versions.
