More like A to Y, actually. 😂

Review of videogames from back in the day…

Game Zone: Blast from the Past

I’m not sure what happened, but this latest entry in 989 Sports’ football (as the rest of the world calls it) franchise kicks major butt over the previous installment.

Bigger is the name of the game for 2005

With 2005 just one day away, we look ahead to what’s in store for the videogaming industry. It’s going to be a busy year. With the introduction of its PSP, Sony will be making a bold move to break Nintendo’s domination of the handheld market. And fans of popular games such as “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” will be pleased to learn their favorites finally will be available on other platforms.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

While 2004 has been a strong year for video games, it’s one of the latest releases that has truly made an impact on me. Regular readers of this column won’t be surprised to learn that my pick for game of the year is Rockstar’s “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”

Game Zone: The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II–The Sith Lords, Crash ‘N’ Burn

The idea is to race cars and crash your competitors out of the race. Simple idea. Simple game. Unfortunately, there’s nothing more than that.

The videogames everyone wants for the holidays

Video games aren’t just for kids anymore. The Entertainment Software Association’s most recent data shows the average age of gamers is 29. While many games still are marketed for the kiddies, video gaming these days is hardly child’s play.

Tony Hawk’s Underground 2

When it’s all said and done, you’ve got to give your props to Tony Hawk. Though the extreme athlete is getting a little long in the tooth (dude, he’s in his 30s!), he’s got a nice little franchise going with his eponymous skateboarding videogames.

Game Zone: Mario Pinball Land, Law & Order: Justice is Served, X_Men Legends

Doing Dong! Unless you haven’t watched TV in the last few years, you’re probably familiar with the foreboding two-note intro that starts every episode of “Law & Order” and its spin-offs. The latest in the “Law & Order” PC game franchise takes you into the world of an Anna Kournikova-ish tennis star who is found dead the day before she’s supposed to play at a big tournament.

Game Zone: Tales of Symphonia, In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies, Kim Possible 2: Drakken’s Demise

Kim Possible is kind of a mix between Sabrina the teenage witch and Buffy the vampire slayer. Cute, perky and very athletic, this cartoon character is a popular high school cheerleader by day and a crime fighter at night.
