    Coming in completely under the radar, RC de Go! could be the most enjoyable PlayStation racer of 2000 that you'll never play...

    All the bosses in "Strider 2" look awesome, and hopefully, will inspire younger players to realize what a real side-scrolling action game should be like.

    Should puzzle fans give Puzzle League a whirl, even if they don't dig on Pokemon? Hell, yeah.

    TWINE revels in fact that it poaches the concepts pioneered in GoldenEye, and N64 gamers should too, because we haven't had it this good since 1997.

    One of the cleanest of the launch games, despite the fact the game takes on a cartoon-y, B-movie art style than the potential for realism that most other developers choose to trumpet.

    While Sega GT's daunting learning curve and super-realistic handling may not be everyone's cup of tea, the game managed to grow on me after extended playing.

    Apart from the major issues of online play, the graphics aren't showstopping, especially when you consider that the game was in development for nearly three years.

    A twitchfest that relies on lightning reflexes and good ol' ninja skill, not the patience to sit through poorly acted cut scenes. That's a compliment, by the way.

    Hell, anybody who enjoys a well-made game should get a more than a few kicks out of UFC.

    What sets "Fur Fighters" apart from the average action-adventure title is its excellent control, interesting puzzles and wonderful characters.

    Fishing gurus will love the idea of big catches, and video game addicts will thoroughly enjoy the strategy behind reeling in each different type of fish.

    Sometimes, you just need to blow stuff up. You'll have a hard time finding a better game on the Dreamcast to satisfy those brutal urges than the delightfully cartoony, but fiercely addictive Gunbird 2.

    Far from being the most perfect fighting game, but it's close to being the most enjoyable one.

    But if you're looking for more than a distraction for the kids, a learning tool perfectly disguised as a game, then consider Nintendo's Hey You, Pikachu!.

    The tracks are absolutely boffo. The control's equally dynamite.

    The best representation of the home beat-'em-up genre since "Streets of Rage 2" and "Guardian Heroes"--but it still doesn't match up to those great games.

    Falls victim to the same fate as Namco's "Tekken Tag Tournament," it offers nothing new except a prettier prom dress.

    Never mind that the story is fantastic--especially because it's based on real history -- the one thing that will get this gem some serious press is the overload of eye candy.

    I'm glad it's finally here, and I can't wait to hear about the wild adventures you create!

    New characters and updated graphics that only the PS2 could offer, and on the other hand... well, terrible slowdown and sometimes unbalanced gameplay are just a few of the many flaws early adopters found themselves clamoring about.

    Both games are directly targeted at the budget level, and are steals for gamers that have never owned the PlayStation versions, or just never had the chance to really get into either one.

    A solid racer, which will either be slighting boring, or completely enthralling depending from which side of the crowd you come from (sim vs. arcade).

    Still missing that fun factor and variety that has elevated the better known beat 'em ups of the past.

    The game's mechanics are just too elementary for any gamer older than thirteen, and even that might be too old for this decidedly kiddie fare.

    If you don't believe physical strain should be the end result of a video game session, then, as Bono might sing, walk on.

    Such a non-step forward in game play that any visual victory it achieves rings hollow.

    Somehow, despite these behemoth obstacles, the game does capture a good portion of the original game's magic, and overall, isn't a bad investment if you enjoy RTS games.

    While the game's flaws didn't bother me that much after I'd played for a while, the initial shock of not being able to control your fielders may be too much for many baseball fans to take.
