Eidos Interactive Games
Championship Manager Season: 02/03
This text-based soccer management game from Sports Interactive will be released in Europe in time for Christmas 2002.
World War II: Panzer Claws
Panzer Claws is a decent game, but if you're looking for another Earth 2150, or even an Earth 1942, you won't find it here.
The game is very middle-of-the-road in most aspects of its execution.
TimeSplitters 2 may very well be the best split-screen multiplayer-focused first-person shooter ever created.
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Hitman 2 fixes virtually all of the problems of its predecessor and stands tall on its own merits as an outstanding action game.
Legaia 2: Duel Saga
Legaia 2 is a good game that can be recommended to hard-core fans of console role-playing. But it's suitable only for that crowd.
Spring Break's actual gameplay never strays far from the G-rated management template that everyone's been trying to copy since RollerCoaster Tycoon.
Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain / Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver / Fighting Force (Collector's Edition)
It's one of the most accessible and uniquely addictive strategy games this year.
Way of the Samurai
Those expecting Way of the Samurai to be the next Tenchu or Bushido Blade will come away disappointed, but all others should find the game pretty entertaining, warts and all.
Blood Omen 2
It's worth playing to those lonely for another vampire game or wanting a change of pace from all the first-person shooters.
While the game is both quirky and Japanese, it simply isn't compelling or challenging enough to really engage its target audience of hard-core rhythm gamers.
Mister Mosquito is a thoroughly original title that brings to a new audience, through parody, a touch of what makes Japanese culture so appealing to so many Westerners.
Another five or six months in the cooker and Herdy Gerdy could have really been something special.
EOE: Eve of Extinction
Yuke's has taken the classic beat-'em-up gameplay and mixed it with the evil corporation motif, creating Eve of Extinction, a game with lofty aspirations but only moderate means.
Salt Lake 2002
This game will feature six official events based on the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
Top Trumps: Doctor Who
Eidos creates a virtual version of the card game populated by the weird denizens of Dr. Who.
Freedom Fighters 2
Io is currently working on a sequal to its critically acclaimed third-person squad-based shooter.
Undercover: Dual Motives
Undercover: Dual Motives is a prequel to the PC gam Wintersun, in which players relive the early days of physicist and reluctant spy Dr. John Russell.
Inspired by the film and television series, this game follows a 2,000-year-old swordsman as he fights rival immortals in modern-day New York City.
This is a remake of the classic hack-and-slash arcade game, Gauntlet, with voice communications, 40 maps, and a choice of four characters.
Championship Manager 2009
Championship Manager 2009 was cancelled, with development rolled over to Championship Manager 2010.
Tomb Raider (1996)
Tomb Raider is simply a smart game, bursting with great touches.
Flight Unlimited II
It doesn't have the globe-spanning sweep of Microsoft Flight Simulator, but it renders its own little corner of the world with admirable fidelity.
If you didn't care for Tomb Raider's third-person perspective and camera angles then Deathtrap Dungeon will probably leave you cold.
Dominion: Storm Over Gift 3
Its lack of distinguishing features renders it entirely tedious for real-time veterans, while its difficulty and bland presentation make it the wrong choice for newcomers to the genre.
Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines
A genuinely original game of tactics, planning, and precision.
Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft
Those who lost interest in the series with Tomb Raider II may want to give it another look with the third.
Thief: The Dark Project
Its emphasis on stealth, strategy, and ingenuity, coupled with its strong narrative structure and excellent mission design, adds up to a game that's stylish, serious, rewarding, and unique.
Gangsters has many interesting features, but they don't come together in the big picture.
Warzone 2100's highly navigable 3D engine, unique campaign structure, and multiplayer gameplay should please most real-time strategy fans.
Myth: The Fallen Lords
This fantasy game unfolds around a richly woven plot, involving an epic struggle between the undead and spirit forces of Dark and the living forces of Light.
Fox Sports Golf '99
If you're looking for an addictive golfing sim that looks and plays unlike any other, it's definitely worth a look.
Final Fantasy VII
Never before have technology, playability, and narrative combined as well as in Final Fantasy VII.
Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty
Beyond the Call of Duty ends up feeling like a shadow of its former self, being both shorter and more frustrating than the original.
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Crystal Dynamics' long-awaited sequel to Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain is a far different animal from its predecessor.
Although Revenant is also a great-looking game that's fun to play, it constantly threatens to break apart at the seams.
Official Formula 1 Racing
Official Formula 1 Racing achieves only moderate success either as an arcade racer or as a serious simulation.
Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
It is an acceptable game based on its own merits, but, set against its own legacy, it is for all intents and purposes indistinguishable from those that have come before ...
It's a real-time tactical action game with very little underlying strategy.
Thief II: The Metal Age
The mission design is more consistent than the original's, and some of the missions are among the best in any action game to date.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire? (2008)
Perhaps like Regis Philbin himself, the game appreciates its own mediocrity, but it executes its blandness extremely well.
Omikron: The Nomad Soul
Omikron's purported innovation and originality amount to nothing more than the senseless combination of unrelated but very familiar play styles.
The story is well-conceived and fresh, following the lives of 24th century humans who have finally mastered cold fusion, and buzz around the solar system like busy bees.
