This strange Japanese Xbox exclusive can best be compared to SEGA’s Seaman, where essentially it is a voice recognition program. That said, because it is Japanese, I am limited to following a guide when playing, taking much of the fun out of it, if there is any fun to be had. Check out the intro, after the break.
While I have been waiting for some new goodies to be delivered, I have been busy getting my Xbox collection up to speed. One of the major titles I was looking forward to picking up was Toe Jam & Earl 3, the sequel to the Mega Drive classics. The game features full 3d environments, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your perspective. Lots of randomization allows for many replays, so I am looking forward to jammin’ into the game.
Ah, another Capcom game that has seemingly killed a series. Dino Crisis 3 on the Xbox is a huge departure from the previous two games, which initially debuted on the Playstation. I could type a whole big story about it, but I’ll just say this : Dinosaurs, in SPACE!
Return to Castle Wolfenstein was one of my favorite titles on the original Xbox. The single player provided a solid experience, but the multiplayer was the true highlight. It featured many of Xbox Live’s best features.including content download and scoreboards, all of which we have come to expect in today’s games. And if I am remembering correctly, the game supported at least 16 players per server, something that some modern games can barely do. Nothing will be as fun as playing on the Beach multiplayer map, over and over, without the screaming kids that litter most online services today. Check out the first 5 minutes or so of RtcW below, and pick up the game sometime!
