    This is perhaps the finest use of the PlayStation2's power so far. Twisted Metal: Black represents a superlative combination of frame rate, detail, and gameplay.

    Perhaps the most impressive new feature in Volume II -- and the reason you'll want to go buy this game (today, if the stores haven't closed yet by the time you read this) -- is a revamped campaign engine that operates in both the single-player and multiplayer game modes.

    An exceptionally cool game. It's got a fun, interesting story; intelligent level design; and provides a great mix of stealth and action.

    With enough questions to keep most casual players entertained for weeks, an enjoyable and fully customizable presentation, and a lightning-quick ALT-TAB program-switching function, Rules Of The Game is perfect fodder for that lunchtime sports trivia interlude.

    All in all, Dogfighter is a heck of a lot of fun and a great way to release any pent-up frustration caused by years of parental nagging.

    A standout among some recent disappointments in the first-person shooter action genre.

    A remarkable new mech combat/fighting game hybrid that -- while gorgeous to look at and often wickedly addictive to play -- offers a surprisingly fleeting overall gameplay experience.

    Take a blender, throw in a copy of "Diablo II" and "Baldur's Gate II," season with vodka, and what do you get? Konung: Legend Of The North, a real-time, role-playing game from Russian developmental studio 1C. It's a Baldur-ish spin-off that, despite its budget price, does quite a few things right.

    Nothing you've played previously will properly prepare you for the authentic and often distressing portrayal of aerial warfare served up by Microprose in B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th. Never has a title so humanized the genre or brought it to such a personal level.

    The game gives you countless rooms to explore and the impression of freeform gameplay despite the fact that the game is actually quite linear. The downside is frequent disorientation.

    Some players will be offended by the manner in which some cultures are portrayed. This is the most damning criticism that can be levied on America. Otherwise, it is a solid piece of work that is a great deal of fun to play, regardless of which campaign one chooses: Native American, Mexican, outlaw, or settlers.

    Despite its minor frustrations, Away Team is still one of the more enjoyable additions to the ever-growing library of Star Trek games.

    Oni
    After three years in development and two years of hype and anticipation, Oni fails to meet the expectations Bungie created for it.

    Perhaps the finest cartoon-to-game conversion I've seen. Everyone is sure to be impressed with at least some aspects of the game, and some will find it just perfect. That those folks will invariably be the youngest members of your family almost goes without saying.

    For all of its strong design and competent game play, however, Red Faction still never quite adds up to the "Half-Life" it aspires to be.

    Combines a wide-open, free-roaming world with nifty physics, torturous terrain, awesome special effects, and more environments, vehicles, and gameplay modes than any other off-road title.

    Technically speaking, one of the most important things this expansion pack does is bring Icewind Dale up to visual par with "Baldur's Gate II."

    This extremely challenging game cries out for documentation, of which there is virtually none. And the nonsensical, sometimes juvenile back-story and completely incomprehensible and disconnected scenarios spoil what could have been a more superb title.

    In the end, though, the playing experience offers more than enough good, clean fun to offset its weak points.

    I still find UO the most ambitious, flexible game design in the current field of MMRP games. I just wish the food were a little tastier after seven years of cooking.

    I'd really like to shimmy up to the crow's nest and holler at the top of my lungs that AoS II is without a doubt the be-all and end-all of naval warfare sims. But until they squash all of the bugs that seem to pop up with amazing frequency, AoS II may be looking for a stiff wind to guide it safe passage for several more weeks to come.

    Draws from all that has come before, mixes it with cutting-edge graphics, and churns out a forgettably generic off-road racer.

    A fun game, with great audio files of worm banter and amusing animations.

    With its shocking horror sequences, macabre pre-rendered backgrounds, and terrifying in-game ambience, RE3 will give PC gamers a shocking treat.

    It has buried within other commonplace RPG elements the most innovative approach to game storytelling I have seen in years.

    On a purely conceptual level, the "Project" is an absolutely first-rate product that shows the RTS genre still has plenty of life left in it when others thought it was dead.

    The game is fun; its combination of humorous action and territory-grabbing resource management make for interesting gaming. Unfortunately, I couldn't help feeling an overwhelming sense of deja vu.

    I stand in awe of the vastness of its scope and the inventiveness of its design. However, it takes forever to learn, and one can't help getting frustrated along the way.

    The best part is that, after the first few Krig-bound missions, much of the campaign takes place elsewhere in the galaxy in a variety of new planets and on new terrain effects.

    Be warned, this is a game with unprecedented story depth but at the price of pacing. Some key soliloquies can drag on for 15 minutes.
