Fire Emblem, Half-Life 2, Eternal Darkness, Bad Boys 2 and Superman 64 of all things step into the firing line.

We asked, you delivered. Well, a couple of you did. Praise be to squaylor and Talha, both of whom chipped in over the weekend, and while we're at it praise be to recovering lost email archives from Zip Disks we don't even remember using. It's thanks to that small miracle that some of the works of Robo_1 and Kami have been resurrected and beaten into shape here today. Having failed to get them up back in the day, it seems only fair to indulge Kami in one of his priceless rants about a really bad old game, in this case Superman 64.

Still, we want more. We want to know about games that everybody else likes that you hate, and we want to know why you hate them. We also want to know what you think of the Nintendo DS if you've had a chance to play with it, and what you make of stuff that's filtering through on import that won't be with us here in Europe until 2005. We want it all. If you've been playing anything lately that you'd like to tell the world about, send it in (instructions at the bottom of the page) and we'll print it. Because we love you all.

Anyway, on with your reviews:
