Group S Challenge

Lately we’ve seen an abundance of racegames being released on XBOX. It all started with Project Gotham and Sega GT 2002, and Burnout 2, Racing Evoluzione and DTM are just the top of a long list. Apparently Capcom had some spare time and tought “Why not make another XBOX racegame ?”. And so they did […]

Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix

Soldier Of Fortune 2, or just SoF2 in short, was a game I loved to check out. This hit was released over a year ago on pc, but due to time constraints (yes, even then I had time constraints already) it didn’t live a long life on my harddisk. My heart therefor bounced up when […]

Colin McRae Rally 4

When you go to your local games store and you’re in need of a rally sim, you are most likely to buy Colin McRae. Not such a strange thing you might think if it weren’t for the fact that it would be part 3 for the PC and part 4 for the consoles. I’m not […]

Burnout 2: Point of Impact

The Xbox hasn’t been blessed with decent arcade racers. Sure at the launch you had Project Gotham Racing but after that there has been a void that no racing title could truly fill. Many have tried but all of them failed. Burnout 2 is the next one on the list that has high potential. How […]

Indycar Series

Whoa, a racing title from Codemasters! Sublime graphics, realistic sound, hours of exciting gameplay and an experience that you won’t ever forget. That’s the feeling I had about Codemasters racing games before this one. The TOCA series are much loved by the gamers both arcade and sim fans. However, when you think about Indycar racing, […]

Brute Force

The rumours are true; I have been associated with the “No first and/or third person shooters on consoles” club. We used the abbreviation NFAOTPSOC because that sounds better. We are keyboard and mouse fanatics and proud of it, imagine playing quake or any other fps on a game pad, come on! However, when Halo arrived […]

Batman: Dark Tomorrow

Batman, nannannannannanna Batmaaaan, Batman nannannannannanna Batmaaaan, Batman nannannannannanna Batmaaaan, Batman nannannannannanna Batmaaaan. For those who hasn’t got it yet, the following words will be about the game Batman: Dark Tomorrow. A must-have or just another miss-used movie-license? Or in the case of this piece of software the question should be: a game of just a […]

X-Men: Next Dimension

Although X-MEN 2 is banging at the gate doors to conquer us all, we bring you this X-MEN: Next Dimension (XM1) review at the very last moment. As opposed to what I was expecting, this is not a third person beat ‘em up game but a regular arcade fighter like Tekken and Mortal Kombat. Even […]

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

The most exciting, creative and lucrative job in the world, that’s what our bald-headed 47 has. As a hired killer he travels all around the world to eliminate his targets. The first episode of the Hitman series was actually one of the most frustrating games I ever played, but this time IO Interactive wanted to […]

Nightcaster: Defeat the darkness

Nightcaster is a pretty old title for the US people and it’s probably already a budget title by now. I got the game a few months back and it took me a while to finish it between school, thesis and finals. It’s actually your basic rpg with a world that has fallen into eternal darkness […]

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

Being a fan of the Mortal Kombat series since the beginning, I was really looking forward to this latest installment. Deadly Alliance starts off with Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, two evil sorcerors from the underworld, joining forces – and thus creating the “Deadly Alliance” – and killing Liu Kang, world’s greatest warrior ever. Their […]

MechAssault

Halo was the so-called centerpiece that came with the launch of the Xbox and now, with the launch of Xbox Live the designated piece-de-resistance is MechAssault. Generally speaking Mechgames aren’t my cup of tea, but when I saw the astounding graphics of MechAssault I threw my prejudices straight out the window. So it was with […]

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4

As a first console review of this newborn Xbox ‘fanatic’ I have decided to live a part of my childhood again in a virtual way. Yes sir, your Fragland administrator has been a hardcore skater (ehem) during the younger and certainly wilder part of his life … should I try this again nowadays, I would […]

Dead to Rights

The Wachowski brothers could obviously never have guessed what effect their life work, The Matrix, would create. Not only did they become millionairs, a lot of recent movies used the much acclaimed bullet time. But this nifty trick also found his way into the gaming industry and has already filled our hearts with happiness. Max […]

NFL Fever 2003

The past 2 months I’ve been playing some Xbox rpg’s for your reviewing pleasure and now that they are finished I had a little time to do a sports title. Personally I think that a console is still the best way to play a sports game like Fifa or Tony Hawk but I had no […]
