Did someone got to play this gem?




Today I got the soundtrack and it brought back lots of good memories. I believe it was Dreamworks Interactive's  first game and interesting people was involved in it, like Steven Spielberg as producer, and the creator of Earthworm Jim. The sequel "Skullmonkeys" was very bad though, made for the PS , and even an uglier spin-off came "Boombots" which was the end of the company that made the game.

The first game was very good. It wasn't just eye-candy  (the whole game was made with ani-motioned clay), it also had a very cool story, weird voice talents and the music was fantastic, written by a composer called Terry S. Taylor.

I must've been 12 or 13 at the time.  I was at my brother's friend's house, playing basketball with them, and my brother's friend got me to help him get into that game.  They were like 10 or 11.  My brother's friend reasoned I was smart and would be able to think like an adult to answer the questions required to get in.  Funny stuff.  Don't remember much else about it except it was some sort of adult-themed RPG type game.  Pictures of naked chicks on the walls, and you could mess around in the bathrooms.  Something like that.

I've really got to agree with Neon on ESPN 2K5. I got it yesterday and it is just jaw dropping how well done it is.

Despite breaking Ricky Williams' leg on the first game of my season play (guess it REALLY will be authentic for 2005 now) it was really easy to slide into after playing Madden for years. I still haven't looked at the instructions for the controller; I mostly could figure them out by instinct.

But the character rendering  :shock:
The tackling animations  :shock:
The half time and post game reports  :shock:

BUY THIS GAME!
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hell Yes!!!!! :-D .......spread the word to the madden fanboys....as for the controls it resembles madden in some ways as for the runnign game...but you can do much more for example if you are running off tackle or a sweep or something w/ clinton portis [you know i got to use a former hurricane for my example  :wink:...... raikus,  sept 6 f$u @ miami...get ready for defeat but your options include:

1. tapping the A button rapidly for a speed bursts
2. push "white" /"black" buttons for left/right stiff arms
3. pull left/right triggers to juke left/right
4. i think B for spin move
5. Y to hurdle
6. also, if you are in the process of being tackled to can hit A rapidly to break free
7. then [if thats not enough] you can hold A for 2 seconds to charge up which makes all the before mentioned moves stronger and more effective...............my favorite is pressing Y when charged and you knock the sh*t out of the guy w/ your shoulder....
8. finally,you can menuever the right joystick in various ways to link these moves into a seamless combo........

.........it s phucking insane the amount and dept of the running game..

and you can do just about all those fancy pre-snap defenses moves that madden 05 contains like, .....double team certain players, and assign sinlge player blitzes...
.this game is solid on both fronts.........
and i agree w/ the graphics......the best hands down for a console football game... [notice the jerseys.... :shock: ].....and i agree w/ the half time /post game stuff its wicked how they use in game footage for highlights.... and i like all the other side line animations which i still find something new each time i play it...

all in all its simply the best........and its only $20..... :!: .....


i am glad you like it........ 8)

Sega sports games are quality all around. The basketball game are the best. I've been playing the 2k series since they were on dreamcast. Then they switched to espn nba basketball (and football, baseball, so on) and will never look back. People go with EA games (madden, nba live) just on name alone, if they went for the better product sega would win every year. Now the sega games are only 20 bucks so that will lure people.

My pants have officially been creamed after reading about San Andreas.

Thanks, Mog.

Rainbow Six 3:  Black Arrow on Xbox Live...if you play let me know.  I'm addicted.

Also, Burnout 3 is a very fun game.
