NFL Extreme HH

PlayStation American Football games have tended to disappear off the map in recent times. Unfortunately, with titles like NFL Extreme, by Sony, it seems unlikely they will make a comeback. The game features all the players and teams from the NFL, as well as exhibition, league and play-off options. But from there on in, the game takes a rapid dive - the poor graphics coupled with the slow and repetitive gameplay provides little entertainment. Sadly for Sony, NFL Extreme is more likely to fumble than to score a touchdown!

Devil Dice HHH

PlayStation There were many unusual games in 1998, eg Kula World, where you had to guide a beachball around a 3D maze. To continue this weirdness into '99, Sony have come up with Devil Dice. You, the player, take on the role of a cute little devil, who has to guide lots of dice around a board, and match up numbers to win points. You can either play in one or multi-player option, and it is the devil who survives that wins. The graphics are smart, and the gameplay is intense. Devil Dice is a complicated little number, so if you snooze, you'll lose!

Buzz Bumble HHHHH

Nintendo 64 Some of the biggest hits of 1998 were on the N64, with games like Zelda and Banjo Kazooie exploding into the charts. However, it was not only the big titles that caused a stir, but some of the small ones too, such as Buzz Bumble, by Ubi Soft. The game casts you as a super bee who has to defend the garden from a group of nasty wasps. With excellent graphics, a first-person shoot-em-up style, and superb two-player options, Buzz Bumble makes for some very addictive action. Buzz Bumble is a great game, so fly down to the shops, or miss out!

LS Links '99 HHHHH

PC CD-Rom Golf games have been around for a long, long time. Titles like Microsoft Golf and Actua Golf have captivated players for years. Now, Eidos are looking for a piece of the action with their new title, LS Links '99. The game features some of the most realistic action you're likely to see in a sporting title. From the crowds watching the match, to the differently-powered strokes, LS Links has it all, and then some. LS Links '99 is one of the best golf games to date - just remember, winning isn't everything, it's the only thing.
