Sydney 2000 (PS1) review – 60 Second Gamer 16

60 Second Gamer

The official video game for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney gave us 12 events and the ability to both name our olympian (with a name like BAP) and choose their country. It’s the little things that count. But unlike Konami’s own unofficial series, Sydney 2000 doesn’t hold up quite as well. Graphically it’s less impressive, …

60 Second Gamer

In an alternate history, the Nazis invade America. Thankfully you are a blue collar construction worker who happens to be extremely handy with a gun and hand to hand combat. It’s a lucky turn of events seeing as the invading army lands right on top of you. What are the chances of that happening, eh? …

The Flintstones: Bedrock Racing (PS2) – 60 Second Gamer 14

60 Second Gamer

Welcome to Bedrock, a hotbed of racing since the stone age. Maybe. The game offers 12 characters and 12 tracks to race around. Quite a substantial number, you might think. Nope. Tracks and courses are unlocked by collecting all 8 dinosaur eggs per track and getting a top 3 finish. By collecting the two dinosaur …

International Track and Field (PS1) review – 60 Second Gamer 13

60 Second Gamer

After their Track and Field games achieved success in the 1980s, Konami resurrected the series in 3D on the PS1. This is International Track and Field. Oh yes. While it lacks any long term replay value in single player, there is much to be said for the multiplayer side of the game. This is where …

60 Second Gamer

Have you ever wanted to be a hip hop superstar, but lacked the bling, gold teeth and thug life attitude to do it? Then fear not! Because 50 Cent: Bulletproof might just be the game you’re looking for. Unless, you know, you don’t want to be a hip hop superstar. If that’s the case then …

The Sum Of All Fears (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Ep11

60 Second Gamer

How do you make a tense action thriller, starring Ben Affleck, translate to a first person video game? Not like this, that’s for certain. He doesn’t even show up, the lazy so and so. What else did he have going on in 2002? Not much. Controlling a surprisingly out of breath squad of three (just …

Naughty Bear (PS3) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 10

60 Second Gamer

On paper Naughty Bear is a good idea. A cuddly toy bear, spurned by the other bears around him, goes on a kill crazy rampage to teach them a lesson. The reality is somewhat less impressive. I know – sad faces all round. Your role is of course to kill everybody before they can either …

Mr Bean (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer 09

60 Second Gamer

This will come as a surprise to our regular viewers, but the *Mr Bean* game on PS2, released by Blast Entertainment, isn’t that bad. I know, I was surprised too. Based on the animated Mr Bean TV series, you must save Teddy who has been kidnapped. Working your way through a number of garden-themed platforming …

Knight Rider 2 (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 08

60 Second Gamer

So Michael Knight and KITT are back in Knight Rider: The Game 2 (or Knight Rider 2 to keep things simple) for another, quite possibly unwanted sequel. Reprising much of the story from Davilex’s first game, you must work your way through a story and, indeed, a game, that have had almost no effort put into …

60 Second Gamer

In a change from our usual focus, this week’s game is one that, surprisingly, isn’t too bad. You are Blue, a blue Smartie who is given a power suit and the job of rescuing all the other Smarties that have been kidnapped by the evil Dr Sour Sweet. Your power suit lets you collect a …
