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 …

Smarties Meltdown (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 07

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 …

Charlotte’s Web (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 05

60 Second Gamer

If previous knowledge and experience is anything to go by, Charlotte’s Web was probably thrown together in a 6-8 week window for a very small amount of money. And it shows. You play as Wilbur (the pig), Charlotte (the spider) and Templeton (the rat) across 19 mini games set on the Zuckerman Farm. Wilbur is …

Let’s Make A Soccer Team! (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 04

60 Second Gamer

Somewhere along the way, Football Manager got it right. Finely balancing what is, essentially, a number of spreadsheets, and making them entertaining. At the same time, Let’s Make A Soccer Team resolutely fails in its effort to convert the beautiful game to the RPG sphere. Your role is to act as club chairman. This explains …

Dr Dolittle (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 03

60 Second Gamer

Welcome to the start of brand new, honest to Grud 2016 60 Second Gamer! We start with perhaps a less well known game, Crash N Burn. This was published by Eidos on the PS2 way back in 2004. In many ways it’s a Burnout clone. There’s fast paced racing action, lots of crashing and plenty of …

Underworld The Eternal War – 60 Second Retro Gamer Episode 65

It seems that most developers just can’t get licensed tie-in games right. Such is the case with Underworld The Eternal War. Only released on the PS2 and not made available in the US, we can say with honesty that you’re not missing much at all. Aside from the incredibly linear gameplay, textures are poor and …

60 Second Retro Gamer – Episode 51 – Lassie (PS2)

A podcast is also available at www.randomstoat.com or through iTunes. Blast know no limits when it comes to acquiring licences for well known franchises (see some of our other videos for more – and what’s worse is there’s a lot more we’ve yet to cover), so it should come as no surprise that in 2007 …
