Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation

  • System: PlayStation
  • Price: $39.99
  • Company: Eidos

Tomb Raider's back one last time to capitalize on its name and lead character. The graphics sparkle, but the control has not aged well. Still, die-hard Lara Croft fans will enjoy it. Grade: B+

SuperCross 2000

  • System: Nintendo 64
  • Price: $49.99
  • Company: EASports

About the only difference between this version of SuperCross 2000 and the PlayStation version are some souped-up graphics, courtesy of the N64's Expansion Pak. Like its brethren, this game has 24 riders and 16 tracks, not to mention fairly poor control. Grade: C

Test Drive 6

  • System: Game Boy Color
  • Price: $29.99
  • Company: Infogrames

Smallish graphics and unexciting game play highlight this game. Sure, there are some real cars, but when you can hardly see them, what difference does it make? Grade: D+

Test Drive 6

  • System: Dreamcast
  • Price: $49.99
  • Company: Infogrames

The Dreamcast has its first serious racing game that is seriously good. With gorgeous tracks from around the world and 40 cars plus upgrades, this game provides its share of thrills, including a police chase mode. Grade: B+

Puzzle Master

  • System: Game Boy Color
  • Price: $29.99
  • Company: Metro3D

This new take on puzzle games has you trying to match three of four types of elements and gives you special power-ups including bombs and daggers to eliminate troublesome elements and bosses. While not 100 percent original, it passes the time. Grade: B

Disney's Story Studio: Mulan

  • System: PlayStation
  • Price: $39.99
  • Company: Disney Interactive

Geared at kids ages 4 to 8, Mulan does its best to capture the story with this interactive point-and-click game. Events include dressing Mulan for her visit to the matchmaker, Mahjong and karaoke to the movie's Songs. Grade: B
