Majestic Review (PC) 

September 9, 2001

pic3.jpg (5828 bytes)EA is running up a great record this year for innovation in gaming. Black and White would have filled the quota for most publishers, but EA brings us Majestic, an online, episodic conspiracy game that gets all up in your business. We love it so much that we've published the picture to the right, which could get us killed. Check it out.
EA Sports Football 2002 Review (PS2)
Another football season, another great year for EA Sports! As luck would have it, we’ve an opportunity to cover both the college game and the NFL with NCAA Football 2002 and Madden 2002. It’s a great time to be a football fan--get the pig skinny here.

Soldier of Fortune Review (DC) 

September 5, 2001

Crave gives us one of the last FPS titles for the Dreamcast. Soldier of Fortune is a port of the PC hit, which features, prominently, lots and lots of gore. It also features strategic, mercenary, military action, but we like the gore. Click here for lots of blood and guts.

City Crisis Review (PS2) 

September 3, 2001

Take Two brings us a game with a bit of a different focus. Rather than blowing stuff up, you're saving people from fires caused by other folks blowing stuff up. City Crisis puts you in charge of a rescue chopper, helping the cops, and generally playing the "other" side of videogame archetypes. Check it out.
Motocross Mania Review (PSX)
It feels like I say this too often, but some of Take Two's Got Game! series (the cheap games) are pretty fun to play. Motocross Mania, however, is not. If dirt bikes are your thing, stick to MX2002. Hope you don't find this in your Xmas stocking. Click here.

August 20, 2001

Max Payne is a story-driven third-person action game with Film Noir themes that follow a lone man's gritty descent to the violent night of New York City, from graffiti-scarred alleys and cockroach crawling hotel rooms to sleek and sexy skyscraper heights; the wail of police sirens are constant and a restless echo stirs in the darkness.
