1.0 out of 5 stars True Crime or True Failure?, 22 July 2004
When I bought this game, a few months back, I always used to think that GTA has brought these 3D action Shoot 'em up games to life, with all the weapons and cars and the pedestrians and then when I saw TC for the first time, this was something alot more different in many senses, yes, the cars were'nt real and yes, the weapons were, but the storyline is the best article I could talk about, because without that, it would be a failure.
You basicly start out new again, after being suspending for god knows what, does'nt say in the intro, so, you start off in the Shooting Range, brilliant! Get those arms and rounds hot and pumping and we are ready to go, massacre and incinerate 10 targets and your in, your badge back, your life back on track. But, for one thing only, them nasty Triads MUST die.
This is where the all action comes through in full effect, walking out to your shiny car with the intigrated siren like you see on Starsky and Hutch, turn that on and rush to the HQ, not a hard task, and this time, your have to rush, foot to floor and we are rocking and rolling, listening to rock and discrimination words and language can be heard from the radio, great! Or not? Not really, the game has no pull on it, you can't get addicted which is bad, because when you do, it's the same schedule, the PS2 goes off and the JoyPad is on the floor smashed up, it's so annoying and not even realistic!
Now your an official Det again, the mission is simple, just kill any law breaking perps and get the praise for it, there is a meter at the bottom of the screen and if you kill any innococent it'll go down into the minuses and you will be phrased and shamed the 'Bad Cop' however, if you kill the baddies you'll be praised and crowned 'Good Cop' everytime you finish and mini-game you will earn points will be increase your cop rating and your badge numbers, and with the badge numbers you can use them for training at the shooting range, combat training, car training, and they all earn you some kind of plus.
The only bad thing I rate against the game is the life-span, it takes about 2 hours to get the boss, him being a dam Martial Arts Genius is going to help the idea and situation, because I was killed within 2 shots of his highly powerful moves, the backgrounds and the building are pretty poor, like you see of Vice City, them black windows when they is nothing in them, square items and sometimes square cars, it's all pretty lame when you get into the game. If and when you kill the General I estimate you will be about 90 and a half years old and the game will be about 1000 years old due to the release of new games everytime you click your fingers, see, I did it and True Crime 500293 came out about 6 seconds after the first!
If you want to buy a very boring, lame and pittiful game which lasts less than a visit to the WC, then this is the game for you, it costs less than a paperclip and acts like one aswell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream danger, live it! Mashed is here!, 22 July 2004
This review is from: Mashed (PS2) (Video Game)
Do you dream danger? Do you? Mashed is just a few clicks away, the highly addictive game is so superior it has had thousands of buyers hooked on it for days upon days on end.
When I tested the Mashed PS2 game, I knew what to expect, tacky graphics, unrealistic cars and weapons mounted on your car? Are you mad? Yes, Mashed is mad, mad is it's middle name. But, was this just another Destruction Derby, or a Gran Turismo Hardcore style? Look at my rating, have a guess for yourself.
Yep, Gran Turismo, off-road mangling, mashing, bashing and incinirating car game that'll have you hooked and wanting more, the game has brilliant effects from the car to the booty of weapons upon choice, from MiniGuns to Side Mounted Shotguns, to FlameThrowers to Mines, it's all here, you just HAVE GOT to end someones day, and that day is now, with over 15 cars to chose from, your feet will be stuck to your pedal 24/7, just like your fingers, the game boasts brilliant, brilliant, brilliant tracks to chose from, from side-widing levels to straight drag races, just brilliant!
This game is the best feat of mashing car rage you will ever encounter, buy it or miss out, and when the track, the weapons and the car is waiting, you know what to do!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sims Bustin' Out Review, 22 July 2004
When I bought my new Sims Bustin' Out, I realised, this is different, this is not the normal Sims we used to play..It's darn better!
The Sims Bustin' Out has some fab effects and some great missions you endure to unlock brilliant new furniture and other items, all the classic stuff is still here and even though they have added more missions and effects, the zest of this game is still alive as I feel, there is great gameplay and some good potencial for family fun.
The best part of the game I thought was great, is the Moving Out idea that the creators thought up of, when you move away from Dudley, you can unlock cars and you can visit different places suchas the famous Club Rubb, Moms House etc. The missions last about 2 hours each, and some are relativly easy and straight forward, the game span is atleast 4 weeks if not more.
The only thing I can say about the Sims Bustin Out, aswell as the former Sims for X-Box, GameBoy Advance etc is the boredom you recieve after playing on it so much, the first few days you are glued to your JoyPad, there is no and I meen no escaping your PS2, your hooked 100% and then, then when you finish most of the main missions, it's just a normal living, going to work coming back, going to work, coming back, that's it, nothing.
But, I rated this 5 stars, and I'll stick to my word, if you want to buy a potencial family packed fun, addictive game that does'nt cunger up violence, sexual activity or any irational parts that should be in a 18 or even 16 then you should buy this.
