Speed Devils HHHH

Dreamcast The latest racing game for this platform is Speed Devils by Ubi Soft. It puts you in the middle of some fast and furious Gran Turismo- style racing action, hammering through various themed tracks on a quest to earn cash and upgrade your vehicle. With typically smooth graphics, some fully interactive backdrops, and a lot of very cool effects, this game is hopefully a taste of more good things to come.

Fifa 2000 HHHHH

PC CD ROM This, the latest version of Fifa 2000, has all the fast- paced, accurate gameplay that was seen on the PlayStation, but adds smoother, more detailed graphics. With the bonus of a mouse to help you navigate through the game's menus, and the inclusion of classic matches, as well as the obligatory LAN and Internet multiplayer options, Fifa 2000 on the PC is perhaps the best Fifa title to date.
