007: Racing for PlayStati by Electronic Arts, Inc., Eutechnyx Limited. In 007 Racing you can get behind the wheel of James Bond's car. You must complete missions which range from collecting something and getting out alive to much harder and complicated things. Your car is armed with many weapons including mines, rockets, lasers, smokescreens, and more. Then, if you get bored playing by yourself you can eliminate your opponent in multiplayer missions where you have to destroy the other car, or a game mode called "Pass the Bomb", where you must pass the bomb to the other car by touching it before you blow up. 007's varied scenery-from the streets of New York to the jungle roads of Mexico-is detailed and moves smoothly as you speed by, but the screen is often blurry with pixels. It's a breeze to control your vehicles-including the Aston Martin DB5 and BMW Roadster-yet some objectives are tedious and frustrating, such as setting multiple limpet mines in precise locations within a time limit. 007 Racing offers mild fun that will appeal for sure only to gamers who love both Bond and action-driving games
Sequel to Namco's groundbreaking PSX combat flight simulator. Ace Combat 2 puts you back in the cockpit as a mercenary pilot out to foil a world-threatening terrorist plot. You'll proceed through 30 missions in which your success will allow you to buy weapon upgrades, parts and other gimmicks just like in the original. AC2 offers sharper graphics and sounds, more planes and options, dual shock support as well as adding a much-needed analog joystick support. While it's not a game you'll play over &over forever (even though I did), it has enough replay value to make it worth your money. This game is a great example of what a sequel should be. Everything was improved from graphics to story line. And if you don't believe me, go to your rental store and pick the "darn" thing up!
You are an ace fighter pilot who works for an organization called "UPEO". The player has to accomplish various missions, from taking out a special aircraft carrier, to taking out enemy satellite systems in orbit around earth. The player can earn ratings from A to D. The higher the rating, the higher the chance that the player can acquire new kinds of planes. The game has many enviroments. From normal arial missions to Stratospereric missions and even outer space missions. Once you understand the controls of the game, they're amazingly easy to use and very intuitive. The HUD with its virtual horizon and whatnot is invaluable, as is the little pointer to your next target. AC3 does everything necessary to make people who aren't even into the genre enjoy the game, from tight controls to cool menus. Sure, you may get frustrated at first by the way the beginning planes handle, but in the end you're going to be having an absolute blast. Pick this game up if the genre interests you, and if not, at least give it a rental. You may enjoy it despite yourself.

Actua Golf is a golf simulation with full 3D terrain and characters. It comes with two courses to play at (country and tropical), customisable characters and multi-view shot tracking and action replays. Actua Golf uses similar game controls as older golf titles did. With a swing meter, where you have to time correctly to hit the ball right. The game features two difficulties and various game modes such as foursome, fourball challenge and skins. Commentary in the game is provided by Tony Adamson, Pat O'Brien and Peter Aliss. Absolute Playstation: I was a little unsure of the credibility that Actua Golf boasted but apart from the odd problem with opponents taking multiple shots, this turned out to be a thoroughly playable golf game. The competition format is an excellent idea where you cannot enter a Pro Tour until your golfer becomes a scratch player which adds to the lastability of the game. The game plays similar to PGA Golf and includes a similar environment but if I had to choose between the two I would say that the honors were even.
Actua Golf 3 is a golf simulation game featuring eight courses. You can completely customize your own character. With a new character you start with amateur tournaments until you have removed your handicap. Then you can participate in the pro tournaments. To hit the ball in this game the player will have to use his analogue stick and swing that much like a real club. The game features commentary by Peter Alliss and Alex Hay. Absolute Playstation: Golfing games in the past have had so little to do with the popular sport that takes place on the greens and fairways all across the world. Anyone who has thrown a golf club down in anger will tell you that accurately striking a small white ball with a thin metal stick is a little more difficult than pressing a joypad button three times in succession. Gremlin have finally cracked it by implementing a new control system that allows the club to be swung using an analog stick. It works a treat and actually feels as if you are swinging through that ball. If Actua Golf was a Par and Actua Golf 2 a Birdie, then Actua Golf 3 is definitely an Eagle.

Square's Chrono Trigger got everything right. The self-proclaimed "dream team" of scenarist Yuji Hori (Dragon Quest), producer Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy), and character designer Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball Z) created a quirky, enjoyable romp through time with a cast of endearing characters, memorable environments, solid RPG gameplay, and unparalleled presentation. Needless to say, fans have clamored for a sequel ever since. Which is why, after nearly five years of silence, the announcement of Chrono Cross drew so much ire. Where was the legendary dream team? (Only Sakaguchi contributed to Chrono Cross.) Where was the cast of characters we had grown to know and love? And who the hell was that Thundercats reject named Lynx? Things looked grim for the Chrono Trigger faithful. When Chrono Cross was revealed to have over 40 playable characters, many lost faith in the game entirely. Had Square thrown all pretense of a coherent story out the window?
