Off-Road Redneck Racing Review (PC)
Off-Road Redneck Racing, comes with the "Leonard N’ Bubba Seal of Approval." Ostensibly related to 1997s Redneck Rampage, the potential to combine backwoods potty-humor with over-the-top racing gameplay (think Dukes of Hazzard meets Midtown Madness), seems chock full of possibilities.  Zoom, zoom, zoom here.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Releases in November
Word on the street is, this Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty thing is going to be pretty hot. Although Kojima and his team have "submerged" themselves into their secret labs to complete the long-awaited blockbuster sequel, Konami has just released information about the MGS2 launch. Click here for the release.
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon Review (GBA) 
Konami resurrects their classic franchise on the GBA, and it's super sweet. Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is an old-fashioned side-scrolling, whip lashing, vampire killing adventure, just the way we like it. Click here.
Sega Announces Crazy Taxi Movie
Sega has announced that there will be a Crazy Taxi Movie. The film is planned for a summer release, although which summer isn't known for sure, and will be directed by Richard Donner. Sega hopes the film will bolster the Crazy Taxi franchise. Click for details.

Hunter: The Reckoning Preview (Xbox)

July 3, 2001

Interplay will unleash an insanely cool horror game for Xbox around the beginning of next year. Hunter: The Reckoning takes place in the White Wolf universe. But it's not a slow-paced RPG. This is a multiplayer dream, with hordes and hordes of the undead to blow away. Click here for the gory details.
Krazy Racers Review (GBA) 
Konami complimented the GBA launch with their very cool cart racer, Krazy Racers. Although it's living in the shadow of MKA, due in a couple of months, this little cartridge packs plenty of good times. To the starting line.

Fire Pro Wrestling Review (GBA)

June 28, 2001

Bam! Entertainment brings the noise into the ring with Fire Pro Wrestling, a GBA title that rivals in gameplay many console wrestling games. With over 150 pre-fab wrestlers and 1200 moves, plus a create-a-wrestler mode, this one will keep you busy for awhile. Get over here!
Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure Review (GBA) 
Majesco brings us another SNES port with Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. Everything about it is pretty great, including the nice visuals and animation, except the lack of a save feature. Click!

Earthworm Jim Review (GBA)

June 25, 2001

Majesco was kind enough to kick us down their launch titles. Earthworm Jim is a classic 2D sidescroller, resurrected on the GBA. For those of you hankering for some old-fashioned EWJ action, or those who missed it the first time around, this might be one to check out. Click here for the review.
Iridion 3D Review (GBA) 
Amaze your friends and relatives with the insanely cool graphics the GBA cranks out in Iridion 3D. The look of this game is incredible, and the boss characters are amazing. Still, it's got some pretty simple gameplay. Click here.
Silpheed Review (PS2) 
The fine, fine folks at Working Designs offer up another excellent import. Silpheed is a high quality shooter, in the classic sense of the genre, with pretty graphics and some cool little twists. And, like all the best shooters, it is damn hard. No pansies need apply. Click!

Rival Schools Project Justice Review (DC)

June 20, 2001

Rival Schools is back, and we are so happy about it. The cult-classic original was incredibly fun, and in Rival Schools Project Justice the greatness has just gone 3D. It's a slow summer for fighters, but you can't go wrong with these high school heavyweights. Click here.
Eighteen Wheeler: American Pro Trucker Review (DC) 
We wanted a mighty convoy; we wanted to hit the gate doin' 88 and yelling, "Let them truckers roll!" We got a big disappointment. Eighteen Wheeler: American Pro Trucker proves that any idea, no matter how good, can become utterly unfulfilling. Roll on, mama.

Red Faction Review (PS2)

June 19, 2001

THQ gives us what we want in Red Faction. The latest FPS for the PS2, and the first to include a really good single-player storyline, also incorporates Geo-Mod technology for revolutionary gameplay. Viva la resistance! Click here.
Super Mario Advance Review (GBA) 
Mario is back, at least on the GBA. Super Mario Advance combines Super Mario Bros. 2 with Mario Bros. Arcade, giving both games some real spiffing up and added voices. It's even better than classic gaming. Click here.
Mars Matrix Review (DC) 
Capcom's latest top-down shooter is another title bringing back classic gameplay. Mars Matrix is a phenomenally fun shooter, and insanely difficult. Who else but Capcom would bring us a game where you have to suffer to win? Click here for the review.
