FIFA 2005

FIFA 2005
3

While there’s nothing unforgivably wrong with FIFA 2005, this edition edition has so few new features that the publisher might as well have just shipped the same package as FIFA 2004. So it goes without saying that if you’re happy with FIFA 2004, there is no reason to upgrade. A bigger problem is that some […]

NBA Action 98

NBA Action 98
3

NBA Action 98 is a lesser known competitor to EA’s traditional line of NBA games. One of the most noticeable mistakes is the lack of 3D hardware support. This game supports several resolution modes, but even at the highest setting of 640×480 with 16-bit colors. The interface works well but still betrays the game’s console […]

2002 FIFA World Cup

2002 FIFA World Cup
3

It’s the world’s largest sporting event — the FIFA World Cup, with an audience of millions of viewers. It’s a big deal everywhere in the world, minus the US, but that didn’t stop EA Sports from throwing in an officially licensed soccer game. The PC version of 2002 FIFA World Cup, alas, is more or […]

Virtual Pool

Virtual Pool
3

With four different pool games including 8-Ball, 9-Ball, Straight Pool, and Rotation, realistic physics designed by physicists, geometry developed by mathematicians, and lots of full-motion video sequences, there’s quite a bit to go around in Virtual Pool. While the various 3D perspectives are adequate and the graphics are nicely detailed, it fails to present itself […]

Grand Slam

Grand Slam
2.5

Grand Slam was one of the first baseball games for Windows 95 to support 3D cards in its time, which made it somewhat unique in its own particular way. But despite the game’s forward-thinking technical aspirations, it suffers from a bunch of interface and gameplay issues. For one thing, there are no configurable camera angles. […]

Pool Paradise

Pool Paradise

Pool Paradise is a pool game that doesn’t take itself seriously. It starts by shunting you to a Tropical island of sand and sun – but not before receiving a 200$ loan from a literal shark to play said games. Playing against thirty different computer-controlled characters, you can earn more cash. With the additional cash […]

Field & Stream: Trophy Bass 3D

Field & Stream: Trophy Bass 3D
3.5

Fishing sims are usually low key, and while that’s certainly the case with Trophy Bass 3D as well, there’s still a lot to experience nonetheless. Solo anglers can take part in fishing trips, tournaments, or go all-out in career play. Trips are simple one-off lake expeditions, while tourneys are full three-day competitions against other anglers. […]

High Heat Baseball 2000

High Heat Baseball 2000

High Heat Baseball 2000 is the most playable, enjoyable, and best baseball game that you can have, striking an impressive balance between arcade and simulated baseball. If it were not for a handful of annoying bugs and glitches, High Heat Baseball 2000 would be a five-star effort. The most obvious addition to the High Heat […]
