Video Game Reviews

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble

SYSTEM: Game Boy Color

MAKER: Nintendo

PRICE: $34.99

The technology behind this game floored me. Moving Kirby through levels requires players to tilt their Game Boys. It's as fun as it is groundbreaking.

Grade: A

Mickey's Speedway USA

SYSTEM: Game Boy Color

MAKER: Nintendo

PRICE: $34.99

Leave it to Nintendo to make a racing game work for Game Boy Color. The cars handle exceptionally well, plus it's cute.

Grade: A-

Smurf Racer

SYSTEM: PlayStation

MAKER: Infogrames

PRICE: $39.99

Smurf Racer is a pretty standard cart game. The only difference is that it features the Smurfs, although there are some voice changes. It's a good rent for kids who like the little blue guys.

Grade: B-

The Simpsons Wrestling

SYSTEM: PlayStation

MAKER: Activision

PRICE: $39.99

It has been a long time since a Simpsons game has come down the pike. While I appreciate seeing and hearing The Simpsons characters in a video game, this is pretty mindless entertainment.

Grade: C

High Heat Major League Baseball 2002

SYSTEM: PlayStation 2

MAKER: 3DO

PRICE: $49.99

High Heat is arcade-style baseball all the way. It isn't tremendously complicated, which makes it fun for fans and non-fans.

Grade: B-

Army Men: Air Attack 2

SYSTEM: PlayStation 2

PRICE: $49.99

MAKER: 3DO

This is the best Army Men title I've played. The PS2 graphics bring the miniature scenes alive, and the game play is addicting. Things can get frustrating though, which isn't so much fun.

Grade: C+
