Xbox Review - 'Deathrow'

by Tony "OUberLord" Mitera on Nov. 4, 2002 @ 5:17 a.m. PST | Filed under Reviews

The object of Deathrow is for you to win matches by whatever means necessary, either by scoring as many points as possible before time runs out, or by severely injuring your opponents and removing them from the field of combat. As the game begins, two teams of four players square off in a combat arena to compete in an intense, unmediated slugfest to determine the champion. As you engage in fierce hand-to-hand combat with highly intelligent AI opponents seeking retribution for not only themselves, but also for their fallen teammates, you'll soon understand the sacrifices necessary to become the supreme team of the league. Check out our brutal review!

GBA Review - 'LotR: The Fellowship of the Ring'

by The Cookie Snatcher on Oct. 20, 2002 @ 3:49 a.m. PDT | Filed under Reviews

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, is a single player lite-RPG where the player follows the storyline of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's saga. Throughout the game, the player will have control over the Fellowship members, at times controlling up to nine characters at once. This title is considered a lite-RPG since it will streamline the usual number-crunching found in most RPG's and simplify it to a more action-oriented, quick-paced format. Combat is turn-based, like most RPG's, but will provide a default AI that will control character actions if the player so chooses.

After the enigmatic disappearance of an American scientific expedition in the uncharted and frozen wastelands of the Antarctic, a military rescue team is sent in to investigate.

The game brings fear and suspense to unimaginable levels, with a compelling plot and unique gameplay elements based upon action, evasion, trust and fear.
