Video Game reviews

Spider-Man

SYSTEM: Dreamcast

MAKER: Activision

PRICE: $39.99

The version is just like all the other versions of Spider-Man. It's a fun game with a few camera problems.

Grade: B+

Project Justice

SYSTEM: Dreamcast

MAKER: Capcom

PRICE: $39.99

This quirky Japanese fighter features team battles and a funny cast of high school kids. There are some hilarious touches, but the fighting wears thin, especially for those who aren't gung-ho on fighting games.

Grade: B-

GigaWings 2

SYSTEM: Dreamcast

MAKER: Capcom

PRICE: $29.99

The best thing about this shooter is that four players can pilot an aircraft at once. Too bad the game play is pure chaos, dodging an endless barrage of enemy gunfire.

Grade: C-

Mars Matrix

SYSTEM: Dreamcast

MAKER: Capcom

PRICE: $29.99

Yes, another shooter, and this one is as difficult as any I've played. Old schoolers may like the challenge, but there's just too much action on screen at one time for my tastes.

Grade: C

Spec Ops: Ranger Elite

SYSTEM: PlayStation

MAKER: Take2 Interactive

PRICE: $9.99

Ten dollars doesn't seem like a lot to spend on a game, but I'd rather blow my money at the arcade than on this one. Not only is it a simple matter of shoot or be shot, but it's dull and overly difficult.

Grade: F

Kiss Pinball

SYSTEM: PlayStation

PRICE: $9.99

MAKER: Take2 Interactive

There must be some demographic crossover that I'm not aware of. Are Kiss fans really into video pinball? If they are, they won't be after playing this one.

Grade: F
