Conclusion: NFL Blitz 2001 is a fun game and I enjoyed playing it. It's fast-paced and there are a lot of touchdowns and vicious hitting. The game, though, feels like NFL Blitz 2000 with new rosters and schedules. The party games are a new feature that will be enjoyed by many, but I doubt if it is enough for someone to go out and buy the game. If you enjoyed the Blitz's of the past, you'll surely enjoy this one.
Excerpt: All right soldiers weapons check! Fall in line! All right maggots, let's lock and load and move it out! We got fritters that need fryin! Turok:Rage Wars, the newest member of the Turok family is clearly the most violent, relentless and unforgiving title of the series. Plain and simple its kill or be killed. Eliminate all resistance. This game ain't for pansies. Only the strong survive. With the influence of the expansion pak, graphics are no doubt impressive.
Excerpt: It started last September with two Game Boy games: Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue. With that, Pokemania crossed the Pacific and spread across our nation like wildfire, spurring otherwise mild gamers and youngsters into a collecting frenzy . Now for the first time on Nintendo 64, gamers can feed their hunger with Nintnedo's Pokemon Snap.
Excerpt: You might as well shoot me now; I’ve become a fan of Pokemon. This blatantly fluffy kiddie title has all the ear-marks of great gaming and gracefully omits the blood and guts and death and violence that so many games seem to need in order to play well.
Excerpt: George, Lizzy, and Ralph have returned to ravage the world in Rampage World Tour, for the Sony PlayStation, Sega Saturn, and Nintendo 64. There are no princesses to save, races to win, or bad guys to defeat. The objective is simply to destroy as many villages, towns, cities, and metropolises as possible. [PSX version reviewed here] World Tour is the sequel to a game which appeared in arcades about a decade ago, and then on every imaginable home system.
Excerpt: "-Butch, whose motorcycle is this?
-It's a chopper!
-Whose chopper is this?
-Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead."
(Q. Tarantino, R. Avary, "Pulp Fiction") SŁOWA WSTĘPNE
Chopper to... śmigłowiec. Nie wierzycie, to sprawdżcie w słowniku. I tym śmigłowcem przyjdzie nam naparzać w rozliczne zabudowania wojskowe, przelatujące myśliwce, helikoptery, bombowce, biegających we wszystkich kierunkach komandosów, wreszcie krążące przy ziemi czołgi i inne opancerzone...
Conclusion: Grafisch en geluidstechnisch zit deze game gewoon heel goed in elkaar, een waar feest van herkenning voor de fan. Dat dit spel geen topper is, komt toch vooral door het feit dat je net een beetje teveel vrijheid mist en het spel wat beperkt is qua Pokémon en originaliteit die er snel afgaat. Maar goed: Wie had gedacht dat foto’s maken van Pokémon zo leuk kon zijn?
