(40-49)/100 = Possibly worth downloading. (50-69)/100 = Pretty decent game. Might want to check it out. (70-79)/100 = Worth the download if you like that type. (80-89)/100 = Very good, 9 outta 10 its worth the download. (90-99)/100 = Excellent game, a MUST download. 100/100 = HOLY SHIT I'VE NEVER SEEN A BETTER GAME! RATINGS are based on the game idea, graphics, sound, playability, ingenuity, versatility, and a lot of other words ending in `ity'. These games are based on what happens on MY COMPUTER ONLY, unless stated otherwise. I always first follow nfo directions, and if those don't work or are not available, I then try other ways. So just b/c it doesn't work for me, doesn't mean it won't work for you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- -<*><*> THE GAME REVIEW <*><*>- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- PEPSI VIRTUAL REALITY GAME [xx/21] _____________________________________________ \__¼ - ________¼ ./__¼ - ________¼ __/ \\__/ - \\ / \\__/ \__ | \\__ \\__ | \\__ /_____| ./_____________./___| ./ [=======|______/===================|______/=] VERY FIRST 3D V.R. GAME FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES... BROUGHT TO YA BY ROR 1996! =[*]= ARE OH ARE =[*]= [================================[06/29/96]=] Well stuff your product in my face and call me Ionizer. This is one of those games <or at least level 1 is> where you use the mouse to avoid steering your ship into the rocks and other milkywayish stuff coming at you. You try to pick up Pepsi cans on the way for energy. You can also shoot, but it don't seem to do much, hard to blow up the rocks. You see shit as if you were in- side the spaceship. The game has about a 15 second intro, that makes it look like if you drink pepsi you can do anything. The annoying thing is, that this lame intro that says, "It's your time, it's your chance..blah blah" doesn't let you abort it and go to the game. No sir homey-g, you must sit through it each time you wanna play it, making it totally a pain in the ass. Game ain't worth the wait of the intro, so ya know what to do.

The game didnt seem to realize that I was pressing keys. I changed the keys to what I wanted and it still didnt want to work. Then I tried the DOS version which worked perfectly fine. Well this one is fucked up or I my computer isnt able to run arcade games for Windoze 95.

PNC ain't really known for games, but when they have they don't usually fuck up like this, be careful guys. RATING: NA/100 VIRTUA FIGHTER RMX (WIN'95) [XX/04] OLD ASS REVIEW NO 3D-HARDWARE REQUIRED TO RUN!! COURTESY OF: 2 LEVEL PLAYABLE - DIRECT X INCL. FUSION ----------------------------------- This game is only a beta, and only allows you to select from 2 characters. The game looks pretty good graphically, quite close to the arcade version. The play is quite smooth, although you need a minimum of 16 Meg RAM to play. On a P-120 it was playable, but still too slow for my liking. I haven't seen the version of the game that requires the Diamond-3D hardware, so can't compare them. Is it worth the download? Don't bother... Games that run under Win95 are usually a waste of time. This game was far too easy... even for someone that has never played the game. I hate fighting games, and all these 3D fighting games are <yawn> all the same. I don't know why we bother with betas! Note: The game has no UnInstall option... and since it goes ahead and installs the Direct-X drivers make sure you run CleanSweep or UnInstaller so you can successfully remove this from your Win95! RATING: 60/100 Speed Haste * FINAL VERSION * (c) Electronic Arts - [3/3] ___ ______ / /_______________________ /___ // / \___ \____ \______ \ \_/ _ \__ / _ __// _ __/ \/ / /\ / / / / / / \ / / \/ / / / / /__/ /____/_____//__/ /__/_____/ / \_/__/\____\\____\\_/__/\__\_____\/ -----\__\/-------------\__\/(-hoson-)----- So nice of Hybrid to go and dupe themselves! They claim: "There has been one or two BETA versions floating around of this game, one was from a group called FBI and the other one we can't remember. Of course we bring you the real final. So have fun!" -HYBRID.NFO The funny thing is, they can't recall thay THEY were the ones who released this, back when they duped Nutella. Anyway, since this is supposed to be the `final', even though I don't see any significant differences, I'll refer to issue #21 on the Nutella review of it. "Here's the registered version of this racing car game that had a demo out back around mid December <it was not the full version, and this therefore is not a dupe>. It's basically a typical arcade style racing game. There's only about 5 tracks which you can race on. The graphics are pretty low stan- dard and the sound is upbeat. However, racing around in circles will event- ually bore you to death, since you can't shoot or anything, just race. Good control capabilities on turns though.

(C) COMPANY - xX/xX [==========================================] Uhh this is the review for Caesar 2 With New Cities, but the dumb group didn't make a file_id.diz with the name. Anyway, I don't see any "new cities" in this one that would differ from the previous one. I couldn't find my own review on it :P so I can't quote the review. It's a sim city game, dealing with some more ancient times. It's very good, and worth the download if you like Sim City. The sound effects <kinda like background noise> gets annoying after a while, but you'll eventually ignore it. Lots of options, plenty to do, and plenty to keep you busy with.

SPACE HULK 2: VENGEANCE OF THE BLOOD ANGELS (c) ELECTRONIC ARTS [XX/38] Are you looking for a shitty Doom clone, with a bad interface and shitty controls? Then that's what you'll find if you bother to download this Napalm release. The game is centered around the Warhammer universe, where you have to blast aliens and grab artifacts off alien vessels or some shit like that. Your first mission is to walk through a few badly modeled rooms and set them on fire, and try not to kill yourself. Supposedly, there's some strategy aspect to this game, but it's lacking. The graphics are poor (read 1-2 years old), and the sound is nothing special. Don't bother with this puppy, it's not worth your effort. And don't download the rest of the CD...um..I mean the voice and video addons.

RATING: MOVIE/100 GENDER WARS (c) GT INTERACTIVE [14/14] _ ________________________ _____ ________ _ REVIEW SECTION \\_____ \_____ \_____ \/ . \\_____ \\ COURTESY OF: dZG/\ __// _ |/ ____/. | \/\ __/ ARCH|VILE _/ \ \/ /_ _/ /_ | ! _/ \ \ \____\ \______\_________|_____\____\ \_ =======\___/===∙1911∙CD∙DIVISION∙======\___/ I followed the nfo exactly, and I was able to get to the menu, however... when I tried to load it up it needed a mouse, so I loaded my mouse, then it would go to the menu, but the second I moved my mouse (the only way to select from the menu) it would crash. When I got an even newer mouse version, it would just lock up. Dunno what to tell ya, it got to the menu, just couldn't do anything from that. Many others had numerous problems with it crashing and not being able to find files that are there, etc. I even had someone who had gotten it to work to give me step by step instructions but it still did not work. Good luck getting it to work. Here's a review on it thanks to Arch|Vile: This is the kind of game that you either love or hate it completely. Consider it a mix between X-COM and Crusader, where the Males Fight the Females. Throw in some Elite programming from SCI dudes, and you got yourself one helluva game. As soon as you start the game, you are given a choice between Male or Female. The difference is huge, since there are different levels, different people, different weapons and a different atmosphere with each of the genders. The main menu lets you pick Characters for the mission, each one has different factors that affect it's preformance. Initially you'd pick the bestest ones right away, but in a long run, it is better to pick the weaker characters for the first mission, because as harder levels come, you will need the strength, the speed and the firepower of the most elite soldiers/soldierettes. The game is viewed in 3D, by an angle similar to crusader and Relentless. I found the characters to be somewhat smallish, but nothing you can't live with. There are many interesting puzzles, considering you have to be in control of 4 people, many interesting ways to test your brain power in certain trap situa- tions, and other mini-mission tactics. The game is not turn based like x-com, but happens in real time. If you leave a character alone near a hoard of women, they will kill him in no time. Well the game is certainly interesting for a while, but i have the feeling only the strongest and most stubborn strategy fans will want to go with this one thru the end. Because of it's relatively small size, I still reccomend this d/l, nothing to lose really.

THE NEED FOR SPEED SPECIAL EDITION FOR WINDOWS (c) ELECTRONIC ARTS [XX/56] Here's the special edition of NFS. What's so special? Not much really, they added two new courses, a west like one, and a city type one. It has newer options for types of racing. Overall they made little improvements here and there, but not too much. You woulda thought they could have made a few more than just 2 new fucking tracks. Anyway it's still the same great racing game. It's still hard to beat the computer who just happens to know the exact angle and speed on that sharp curve. Anyway, a good car game, you all know what it is, here it is, just a little more improved. Also takes up a nice 133 megs as Napalm had not cared about the disk limit, but has now agreed to the 50 disk limit and this was released before that. RATING: 70/100 COMPLETE BASEBALL FOR WINDOWS /|______)\__________________ \_____ \ _ \______ \ / ______/ | / _ _/ / \ | \ | \ / \_____| \___| \ \_______/ |_____/ dB|_____/ ·───·────-─-PANDORA'96-──[1o/1o]─· I was able to tell what this was from the .bmp's b/c a lot of the zips had crc errors everywhere. This seems to be just a lame preview/promotion for this microsoft information thingi. It is just a compilation of baseball facts and audio/video clips. It has all the facts you could need to know and will let you get updated statistics. But this just appears to tell you about the program and does not look to actually be the program, so fuck it. RATING: 14/100 <had a few .bmp> ------------------------------- STORE CD REVIEW COURTESY OF: AH64D Longbow Apache (Store CD) ENTROPY ------------------------------- Well Janes and Electronic arts have done it again. First with ATF and now again with AH64-D Longbow. Janes being the leading resource for military/ weapons/nasa related equipment and Electronic arts being one of the leaders in computer gaming over the past couple of years. In case you have not guessed AH64-D Longbow is a Helicopter Simulator allowing you to fly both the Apache and the Longbow in a varity of campaigns from Deasert storm to panama giving you a varity of places to test out the Longbows features. Some of the features include the 'BOPUP' mode which allows you to hide behind a mountian, Aquire a target list, send it to your wingman who can then Bopup behind the mountain and take out your target pack of up to 68 targets. Those of you who loved Gunship 2000 will probably enjoy this. Those of you who are not into Flight Simulators that require you to think and have a keycard on hand then stay away. I ran this game on a P90 w/16 megs of RAM and well it was pushing it. I suggest at least to playit, as the graphics are AMAZING and the reality makes it feal like you are really there. RATING: 90/100 DEADLINE (c) MILLENNIUM/PSYGNOSIS [31/31] _ ________________________ _____ ________ _ \\_____ \_____ \_____ \/ . \\_____ \\ dZG/\ __// _ |/ ____/. | \/\ __/ _/ \ \/ /_ _/ /_ | ! _/ \ \ \____\ \______\_________|_____\____\ \_ =======\___/===∙1911∙CD∙DIVISION∙======\___/ Razor claims that the Dynamix release of this game was a beta and not the final version. So here is the final version. I don't see any differences, it's still the same game. It's a good game but it's way too complicated and hard to control. You just have too many guys to control and like they don't always do what you tell them to do, a reference card is definitely needed. Later on, a user named Scuzi, discovered that in the \substme directory, there is a file called DEADLINE.DSK, and if you type it, you will see the following: DEADLINE - PRE-RELEASE. Makes ya think again... Here's the review from issue #22: "Here's a pretty cool game where you are giving a squad of guys who have to break down doors and arrest people, or make the appropriate actions in hos- tage situations, and kill 'em if necessary. Only problem is trying to figure out how to do stuff. Some docs for this one might be a little helpful. It looks like fun, but it's hard to figure out how to do stuff. This game could be really cool, if it just had an easier interface and not so many complicat- ing things in it. Might want to check it out if you got some time and are willing to explore this. So you don't think it's immediately lame when you start, I suggest hitting the "live action" button and start exploring shit that way.

It is very real life like, and the game play runs smooth as if it were just like the real thing. It's a good game to keep and to have, but it will take up about 110 megs. I bet your parents would love it too, so be nice and give them a gift.

Hey! This is the pAth0s with his first ever Win95 Games Review. In advance, I'm gonna come right out and say: I might be wrong. I might say something won't install when it does, I might say something sucks, when it don't, and I might say anything that'll get your panties in a bunch. Big deal. I fuck up, live with it.

Software: Win95 Service Pack 2 beta (includes activeX, directX, and all that) All the latest drivers for the above hardware. Ratings System: 100 Max pts per area.

I don't. In the install, it asks if you want to copy over your "old drivers", pick no, and it'll fuck with em anyway. It doesn't actually nuke your old ones. Just changes to thier version of the directX driver. Anyway, it does install. The first time I tried running it, I was using my old drivers (cuz face it, even beta drivers from the manufacturer are better than MS's) and running in 800x600 32M mode. I got the familiar black directX loadup screen, then dropped me right out. I switch- ed to their driver (which only uses 640x480 mode, period) and in 640x480, the game worked fine. After playing the first time, I switched back to my drivers and it played ok as well. Kinda weird. pAth0Shout: A GREAT crack from Misha! This release was thought to be uncrackable by Prestige, and released UNCRACKED (big no-no) by Core Dump (I think RCN showed us what happened with this one..) How's that saying go? Don't send a boy.. pAth0Bitch: CD -for releasing an uncracked game and making me waste a couple hours to leech their version. Follow the directions in the .nfo and you cant go wrong.. ** Install Points: 75 if you like your drivers : 100 if you don't Game play: Smooth but slow. the players tired out way too quick. It seemed like they slowed down immediately after the first face-off of each period. It's got all the nifty features though, Win95 joystick support (with button config), lines editor, manual or auto goalie, support for up to 3 players, coach mode, diff. season options, etc.. The only thing missing was a camera angle option (there might've been one, but I couldn't find it). I don't think there's any fight- ing in this one, but you can injure players with good checks. Goals are hard to come by. I played a total of 4 complete games, and I think I scored 3 goals. (Maybe cuz I SUCK??) One game ended in a draw (a draw you say?? - yup.. Only 1 OT) I did everything, one timers, tricky passes, etc.. But we all know the computer cheats, so deal with it. Calls by the official are frequent, even the computer goes offsides a lot. ** Game Play Points: 83 if you're a hockey fan : 75 if you're not.. Summary: Not a bad game if you're into hockey like me. (GO BLACKHAWKS!) It did seem a little slow, but real smooth, which leads me to think that it's supposed to be that way. If ya got the system resources/hard drive space, you might wanna find NHL96, otherwise give this one a shot. ** Judgement: Grab it. You'll spend a couple hours playing this one. ┌─────────────────────────────────────┬─────────────────────────────────────┐ │ Cracked By: - │ Release Date: 28th June 1996 │ │ Supplied By: Pest │ Protection Type: None Located │ │ Stripped By: Pest │ Game Type: Baseball │ │ Packaged By: Shadow Master │ Game Rating: 95% │ ├─────────────────────────────────────┴─────────────────────────────────────┤ │ Requirements: PENTIUM, 16 MEGS RAM, WIN 95, 15 MEGS HD SPACE │ ├───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┤ ________________________/_|__/| ___________ \___ \ __ / __/ __/ / |/ ____/ __/_ | __/ _/ _/ _| \__ \ \/ / ) / _| / |___|\__\ \________ /___\__\__ \______\ +--------\___/÷e÷/aL!\/--------/_____\-----+ FPS BASEBALL 96 (WORKING/WITHIN LIMIT)[xx/31] Install/Setup Notes: None. Just run in 256 color mode like most Win95 games. If you do notice choppy behavior, make sure you're in 256 color mode, and reboot windows to refresh your memory. It should run fine. Ran fine for me at 800x600 @ 256. ** Install Points: 100 Game Play: Ok here we go.. Remember when I told ya to "live with it" up above? Well, this is probably gonna be one of those times. It's not that it's really THAT bad of a game, but at times it didn't even feel like I was playing the stupid thing. It uses joystick codes resembling those found in MKIII. Sure, there's a help file, and a joystick setup, but remembering all those joy/button moves is kinda annoying. Ok, granted if I woulda played it for longer than 45 minutes, I might've been able to memorize most of em, but it just really didn't spark my interest longer than that. Game speed was fine, as well as more than enough configuration options. Weather, ground type, stadium selection, player names/ numbers, and different volume levels for different sound types are all inclu- ded. It's even got some option that'll learn a combination of moves, presum- ably for things such as a double play and stuff like that. One of the cool things, is that the game play is broken up into 4 parts: Pitching, Hitting, Running, and Fielding. Each can be controlled by either the computer, joy- stick, or keyboard. This lets more than one person play on the same team. One can pitch with the joystick, and another can field with the keyboard. The graphics were pretty decent though, bringing the score up nicely. ** Game Play Points: 88 if you can spend some time with it : 72 if not Summary: Good graphics brought the score up alot. But definately not worth a lot of the hype associated with it, nor the 95% PSG gave it. But, we all know how release groups rate thier warez (Bios Flasher For The Spooge-0-Matic Kitchen Blender 110%!!) heh Anyway, an interesting touch (it musta knew I was reviewing it..) was that I hit a 398 footer outta the park the first time up to bat :) ** Judgement: If ya got the time to learn how to control this game (you need a life <G>) you'll want this one. If ya get frustrated easily, skip it. ▄▄ ████ █▀▀▀▀▀▀▄▄ ▐████▌█ █▀▀▄ █ ▄▄█ ████ █ █ █ ▌▐▄▄ ▄████ ▀▀ █ █ █ ▌▐███▄ ▐█████ █▄▄█ █ █▄▄▀ █ █████▌ ██████ █ █ █ ▄▀▀▄███████ ▐█████ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓▓ ▓ ███████▌ ▀████ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ █████▀ ▀▀█ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ █▀▀ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ ▒ ░░░░ ░░░░ ░░░░ Independent Releasing ╔════════════════════════════════╗ ║ FPS Baseball 96 HIGH END Audio ║ ╚════════════════════════════════╝ [06/30/96] [01/23] * To Be Used With PSG Release * Install/Setup Notes: None. Just un-rar according to the nfo. ** Install Points: 100 Game Play: Yup. They're the high end sounds alright. I played FPSB without, then with this audio pack, and it did improve the quality of the game. They do sound pretty good coming outta the home stereo (the ONLY way to listen to shit from your PC) ** Game Play Points: 75 Summary: Good to see that PSG didn't release this as well to gain extra points from one release. You prolly won't want to get this though unless you A> really like the game, or B> plan on burning the whole install to CD. ** Judgement: Burn it (to CD, you ninny -not literally)! ┌───────────────────────[ ■ NAPALM PC PRESENTS ■ ]──────────────────────────┐ │ │ │ FIRE FIGHT (c) ELECTRONICS ART │ │ │ ├─────────────────────────────────────┬─────────────────────────────────────┤ │ Supplier: MR.

FIRE FIGHT (c) ELECTRONIC ARTS [XX/28] Install/Setup Notes: It pretty much installed according to the .nfo, but there was some spag leftover from the packaging or something. It had an arj in the dir you unrar'd into, which wasn't anything important, just copies of the original uncracked .exe's.. It's a mystery to me too?!? However, the crack was good, amazingly enough for NPM. The release could've been shortened by a disk if the extra .exe's in that .arj file and the uncracked .exe's were left out. ** Install Score: 85 (Hey, it's from NPM and it actually WORKED!) Game Play: Pretty good game. Awesome grafix with parallax scrolling. Not just another pseudo-3d scroller either. In fact, it's not even a scroll type shootemup. Full 360 degree movement, complete with great weapons, and turbo boost. Ran incredibly fast and smooth on my machine. I'm really starting to get excited about the DirectX games. With just a handful of em out, and the protocol just starting to be used, a few months down the line should bring about some really nice stuff. Anyway, back to this one.. It only uses 2 buttons as default, but it does have joy/keyboard/mouse setup. There's a high res (640x480) and 2 low res modes (320x240 and 320x200 I think) so you can still play this on low end systems. Game sounds were good too. The sound of the cannon blaring through my stereo actually gave a kick to my woofers. hehe Even some decent speech in here as well. Good release! ** Game Play Points: 92 Summary: Good game, great grafix, sound, speech and FAAAASST! ** Judgement: Snag this one. Not your usual shoot-em-up! ╔═════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════ ║ Proudly Presents ║ %%[ Cyber Dillo for Windows95 (c) Pixel Technologies ]%% ╟───────────────────────┐───────────────┐────────────────────────┐──────────── ║ %%[ Supplied By ]%% │ Specie │ %%[ Release Date ]%% │ July 03/96 ║ %%[ Cracked By ]%% │ - │ %%[ Game Type ]%% │ Doom Like! ║ %%[ Packaged By ]%% │ Specie │ %%[ Game Rating ]%% │ ****/5 ║ %%[ Stripped By ]%% │ Specie │ %%[ Protection ]%% │ - ╟───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── ║ %%[ Requirement ]%% │ 486DX2/66, 8MEG RAM, 34 MEGS HD SPACE, WINDOWS 95 ╚═════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════ _____ /\. _ __ ._/|______|\___. \__ \/ | /_\ | \| _ __/ _ | | _ _ |/ | \| : | | | |__| | \/ | _ \ \ | | |___ | |__||__|__|__/__|\__|__|__| ____| +===[09/09]========PresenTs=\/=====+ | Cyber Dillo Win95 | | (C) Pixel Technologies | +==================================+ Install/Setup Notes: Just unarj and play. DirectX not included though. Easy enough to find. ** Install Points: 100 if you have directX : 50 if yer a lamer! Game Play Notes: HA HA HA!! What a GAG! I swear this is made by the same people who made Jumpin' Flash for the PSX. The .nfo says "Doom Like!" but I disagree. The only thing doomish is the 3d perspective, the rest is on acid. If anyone has ever played with the 3D world OpenGL screen saver in what I call "funky mode" and liked it, this is for you. It's almost the same thing, but all the objects are 70's disco type things. Bellbottoms and all.. Basically, you're an arm- idillo that has to roam around in a maze and find certain objects without getting killed. And oh yeah, you shoot TOILET PLUNGERS! Game play was incred- ibly fast, almost to the point of not being able to play it, and of course my gravis gamepad prolly didn't help much either. I even tried it with the speed turned all the way down, but I still felt like I was a bumper car at times. The tuneage was like totally gr00vey too. Even the sound effects resembled those of Jumpin' Flash. The only problem I had with this is that it didn't recognize my keyboard input all the time when I was doing the configuration settings. Had to keep hitting escape a lot to back out of a menu. It does have key/mouse/joy config (but only 2 buttons) and volume control. ** Game Play Points: 90 for acid-minded individuals : 30 if you're Bob Dole Summary: If you have ever done drugs (or currently under the influence) you MUST at least give this one a shot. If you don't do drugs, but want to know what it's like to do some LSD.. Get this. ** Judgement: Get it. You'll either love it or you'll hate it. -Welp, that about wraps it up for this week. Sorry if it's a little short: short notice, big week (I bet I leeched over 650M in a 7 day period-at 28.8), and I have to do a motorcycle rally/campout for the 4th of July weekend, but I'll be back next week with ALL the latest and greatest for Win95! Bitches, bombs, farts, and spag accepted at: [email protected] A couple quick greets and shouts to Kilmer, Arutha, Foul, V, and all of k0k! Tha Ionizer- RCN- Juan Juarez and the #W5 Net! And of course to all people striving to improve the scene in ANY way! It's YOUR world. YOU make it happen. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- <*>THE GAME OF THE WEEK<*> ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let's see now, Deadline, AH 64D Longbow, Need For Speed SE, and Frank Thomas Baseball...are all not elligible to win GOTW :) . So this week's GOTW is a tie between RAZOR and ROR for their releases of GENDER WARS and JEOPARDY. Although it's hard for me to judge a game I couldn't get to work, from the review and comments of people who did, they made it sound like it was worth the download. Jeopardy, although may sound boring to most of you, is actually a very good game, and would make a nice gift for mommy and daddy. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- <*>OTHER RELEASES<*> ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Screaming Skies (Win95) Gender Wars (Epic, Uncracked + Missing Disks) (See RazorCD review) War Lords 2: (INP, Dupe) Bruce Jenner's Decathalon (Prestige, Win95) Sim City 2000 Network Edition (Razor, Win95.
