WES POWELL'S TOP TEN ATARI CONSOLE AND COMPUTER GAMES|
Here's my top ten....
NOTE:....I was too young to really get into video games when I had
the 2600. I'm going all Jaguar.
10. Hover Strike: Unconquered Lands
The update of BattleZone on Jag CD. Great texture mapped
graphics. Realistic gameplay and hovercraft controls. Fully
light sourced with animated landscapes and textures. Great
movie-like soundtrack and Battlesurround sound FX system....
This games almost an RPG...Great plot and storyline, superb
cinemas, excellent backdrops, and motion captured animation. I
like to call it a fully interactive Myst.
8. Missile Command 3D
This update of the classic is great. It's a virtual defense-fest
in a 3D world. I liked 3D mode a lot too....the ability to
upgrade your cities and missiles. Cool stuff.
7. Iron Soldier
I can still remember the first day I played this game. My jaw
dropped open at the site of a helicopter explosion above me....
and the site of the pieces dropping in front of me was amazing.
The variety in the mission objectives kept this game fresh....no
"get the pods" levels.
6. Virtual Light Machine
It's no game, but it definitely graced the Jag CD. VLM creation
5. Aliens Vs. Predator
hehe....need I even say anything?
4. Towers II
The thing that really draws me to this game is the story and
depth. It's unlike any other Jaguar game out there. Deep story,
nice graphics, nice music, witty puzzles, and superb character
3. Defender 2000
This game's not too steep for me. Others complain that it's too
hard. The game's a total blast! Untamed speed and power-ups
galore....Those flaming fingers on level 60 are killers!!
2. Tempest 2000
This game is undoubtedly one of the best and most addictive games
ever. The rush that you get from this baby is great. Jumping,
dodging, spinning, pixels flying towards you....totally insane!
This game has been my favorite since it was released. Luscious
shading, great cinemas, a ton of levels, lots of weapons, and
even some cool soft-techno tunes.
