FIFA 99 HH

Nintendo 64 Fifa Soccer has always been a top notch game, but even on the powerful N64, it seems the soccer series is now running out of puff. While the animation is impressive, the gameplay has almost become too fast - a typical move averages around three passes before a shot - and the overcomplicated handling system can cause great frustration. Hopefully EA will go back to the drawing board before releasing Fifa 2000.

TA: Kingdoms HHHH

PC CD-ROM With the new Command & Conquer title being delayed, GT have snuck in and unveiled their competitor, Total Annihilation: Kingdoms. It maintains all the great features seen in the TA series - superb real- time strategy set in a 3D environment - but now incorporates magic as a weapon. With skeletons, dragons and wizards at your finger-tips, Kingdoms is truly a stroke of fantasy genius.

Beavis & Butt-Head H

PC CD-ROM GT Interactive have launched another Beavis and Butt- Head title this month, the aptly titled, Bunghole in One. Using the TV show's 2D cartoon style, it combines the weird, adolescent world of the two strange kids, with the mundane pastime of miniature golf. Although the game does, at first, entertain with its bizarrely themed holes, the simple point-and-click routine soon becomes very tedious.
