Black & White Review (PC)

May 15, 2001

Revolutionary. Overwhelming. Ambitious. Deep. Innovative. Inventive. Complex. Engrossing.  Welcome to the world of Black & White.  Destined to be a classic, Peter Molyneux's long-awaited epic is a formidable offering that challenges, pleases, and continually thinks outside of the box--well, at least if there's poo involved.  Follow me, Creature...

Rumble Racing Review (PS2)

May 14, 2001

EA brings us a great new kart style racer in Rumble Racing. It's all the fun of the kart genre with none of the cuteness. These vehicles are mad, bad, and dangerous to drive. Amazing stunt and power-up action makes it a whole lot of fun. Get yer motor runnin' here.
Konami Announces E3 Lineup 
Konami will have a whole slew of games to show off at E3. Probably the most anticipated of them are Metal Gear Solid 2 and Silent Hill 2, both due this fall for PlayStation (PS2, of course). They will also be showcasing some cool GBA stuff, including Castlevania.
Check it out here (or else we'll send the nurse after you).
Infogrames to Showcase 35 New Titles
Ah, the French. C'est incroyable that Infogrames will show off a whopping 35 new titles for a whole range of systems. Included in the lineup are titles like Unreal Championship, Alone in the Dark 3, and a whole series of TransWorld extreme (or action, as is vogue these days) sports games. Cliquez ici.

Waterloo: Napoleon's Last Battle Review (PC)

May 9, 2001

Napoleonic wargamers have been lobbying for this one ever since Sid Meier's Gettysburg! hit the street, and Strategy First and Breakaway Games shoulda had a sure winner in Waterloo: Napoleon's Last Battle. Unfortunately, the aging SMG game system might not have been all that suited for column/line/square gaming anyway.

Simpsons Treehouse of Horror: Night of the Living Review (GBC)

May 8, 2001

The Simpsons finally get a decent game, and wouldn't you know it had to come on GBC? Go figure! At any rate, The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror: Night of the Living is a fun sidescroller with lots of variety and endearing Simpsons characters. Not to mention a twisted sense of humor. Click here.
WorldWinner.com Review (PC) 
We've been losing money on WorldWinner.com. I guess my Brickout skillz just aren't quite enough to pay the billz. This "not a gambling site" site lets you wager on classic games like Chess, Checkers, Solitaire and the like. It's snazzy, and quick, and you can win money. Click here.

Ultima Online: Third Dawn (PC)

May 4, 2001

Ultima Online: Third Dawn now comes with 3-D graphics and looks pretty impressive compared to its 2-D predecessors.  The isometric perspective is preserved--now it’s all in polygons.  Spell effects are impressive, most of the monsters sport new designs, and everyone will like the spiffy looking dragons. Venture here for more...
Europa Universalis Review (PC) 
At first glance, Europa Universalis may look like the old board game "Risk" on steroids; start playing and you'll quickly change your mind.  If you must build EU up from an ideal of Risk, imagine that you're playing it as a final test for your college studies in European History, Religious studies, Economics, Wartime Strategy and Government.  It is by far one of the most complex and historically accurate Strategy games ever made.  Get the details here.
