Summary

All Star Baseball 2001 is yet another hit that release on N64. It still has the same superb gameplay from last year's, with a little extra in it. ASB2001 fixed most of the glitches I experienced in 2000. The gameplay is more intense, fun and exciting.]

If you want to talk about the graphics, it definately cannot be matched except for games such as LoZ Majoras MAsk, Paper Mario, ect...The game looks fantastic, as if it was on the next gen console after N64.

The sound unfortunatly... isnt so great. It would be way better if there were the sounds effects like...

-Make an actual bat swing and hit sound
-Players talking trash with others (good idea =] )
-Better wind sounds...
-The Crowd goes wild after homeruns, hits , ect... ( REALLY wild)
-Team cheers
ECT...

I guarentee it, if those features were on this game, I would have done nothing but score the sound 10 out of 10.

If you've enjoyed last year's game, there should be no trouble liking this game. It'll last you long, with or without friends. The season mode is also pretty well constructed. Scouting reports, injury, call ups from AA and AAA ect... , all that you expect from last year's.

Overall, ASB2001 is a superb game, definate improvement from last year's processor, and is a must-buy if you're a baseball fan. The graphics are completely unmatched, and you wouldn't be suprised how much you'll like this. Have fun

Summary

Tony Hawks Pro Skater for the DC is a port of the PS1 game. As with most ports, there is nothing new here aside from better graphics and sound. However, this is one of the most addicting, complex, and fun games I have ever played.

I bought this game in early 2000 after hearing all of my friends boast about the playstation version. I soon realized just how right they were as this game can be played for hours on end. Even without the manual that came in TH2, there are litterly millions of different combinations, lines, and trick sequences to do. I still play this game today and am constantly amazed at the amount of new things I am able to do and find.

The sound is incredible. This game easily has one of the best soundtracks of any videogame. From punk to ska to rap, it covers it all. You will probably find yourself humming the tunes walking to class or driving home.

This game has it all. Some of the best moves, levels, animations and music of any THPS game. Overall, despite its age, this is a game not to be missed. If for nothing else today, it serves as a timeline and starting point for the franchise and makes you appreciate just how much it has evolved.




One of the best game series ever.

Summary

Really awesome!!! There are a lot of goals you can reach for like for a High Score, Hidden Tapes, S-K-A-T-E and a whole lot more. There are also different modes like Graffiti and HORSE. And with some of the best skaters in the world including Chad Muska, Jamie Thomas, Elissa Steamer and of course Tony Hawk. Each skater with their own special moves and a whole lot of other great tricks. The graphics are great. Nice models and beautiful environments. It has some of the best graphics for the Dreamcast. This is indeed one of the best games ever made and I really recommend it. It is a must have!!!

Summary

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was orginaliy released for the Sony Playstation in 1999.The Dreamcast version came out about 1 year later and I have to say this game is true masterpiece.This game got me into skateboarding and this is one of the best skateboarding games you can find on the Dreamcast.Tony Hawk's Pro Skater has enough to keep you coming back for more and it's a pretty awesome game overall.Now you get to play as alot of famous Skateboarders with Tony himself,Bob Burnquist,Chad Muska,Elisa Streemer and much more.Each Skateboarder comes with their own custom Skate deck and it change the flow of the game sometimes.Now the graphics in this game are simply awesome.This is by far the best looking version of Tony Hawk when compared to the PS1 and N64 versions.Everything is given a massive amount of detail and the enviorments look simply stunning on Dreamcast.The controlls are also really simple and this game is just great to pick up and play and in no time you will be grinding and doing flip tricks in no time.The trick system works well.While your only limited to doing about 3 to 4 tricks per jump or grind it adds alot of challenge and realism that is not found in the newer Tony Hawk games.The challenges range from collecting letters,destorying items,getting a high score and much more.The levels are also really good as well ranging from some Skateparks,New York,Chicago,Skating Tournaments,Area 51 and more.The music is also really awesome as well with bands like Dead Kennedys,Goldfinger and Primus supporting the soundtrack.It fits the mood well and I like the music alot.Overall Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is a must own if you have a Dreamcast.It's amazing graphics and Intense gameplay will defenitly keep you busy for months to come and in my opinion this is the defenitve version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater to own.
