    With UFC, I experienced a sub-par game with great graphics and a main menu that you get to see a whole lot of.

    Bizarre neglected to focus on polishing MSR's overall driving experience. Not that MSR is a bad game, but there are at least a few other Dreamcast racers I would have to recommend before it. "Test Drive: Le Mans," anyone?

    While it has all the makings of a great game, its ho-hum presentation, standard graphics and gameplay, missing online play and overall lack of innovation make this a game to pass on if you can.

    While I really enjoyed the combat engine, I can't play through Starlancer and not think that it's a mere shell of a game.

    If you missed out on RE2, are interested exactly how the storyline of Code Veronica came about, and don't mind the semi-dated graphics, Resident Evil 2 is a gripping adventure at a budget price.

    It has its glorious moments and it has its "what the hell were they thinking" moments.

    Dreamcast owners looking for the "Diablo" experience on their console will have a good time with Record of Lodoss War.

    There are some real challenges and interesting missions here for those of you who are console flight sim enthusiasts (yes, all three of you).

    One incredibly lame game. When it isn't busy being ugly or hard to control, it seems to take great joy in killing you without allowing you the chance to first defend yourself.

    The gore alone will keep you entertained at first, but once you discover the game's detailed graphics and subtle effects you'll be hooked.

    A game that will torture you with terribile acting, when it isn't putting you to sleep.

    "But there is no joy in Mudville -- Visual Concepts has struck out."

    Much to my disappointment, Iron Aces turns out to be a really great idea dragged way the hell down by far too many bad design decisions.

    I've never been a fan of vehicular combat titles, and this game hasn't changed my mind.

    It isn't that the game isn't solid and fun. It's just that most players will wonder why they didn't just stick a couple of bucks in the arcade machine instead.

    A game that has some problems, but its great storyline, great characters, and trmendous amount of humor moves its minor gameplay flaws into the shadows.

    Sets a standard for AI programming, and it's a good game... if you like raising and training virual pets... Don't be surprised if you complete the game in one sitting.

    Control and camera issues, and the strange stop-n-go gameplay that Illbleed sports may be too annoying to make people want to endure the game's six levels. If you can get past those problems, then you may find something that is actually pretty enjoyable.

    ZR will just drive you nuts. Satisfaction, it seems, goes to the quick, not the dead.

    The variety of ways to progress in the game should keep them glued to the set. But be warned: there's very little here for us older gamers.

    The game's attempts at arcade racing are very flawed, through poor level design which completely misses the scope for amazing "in your face" arcade levels, poor unrewarding game physics and also through badly implemented extra modes.

    Not only is the game lacking in innovation, but it's dragged way, way down by uneven and confusing mini games, far too many load-time interruptions and horrible, sophomoric music.

    Death Crimson OX dies the slow death of mediocrity. While no single element of the game is horrible, none of it is good either.
