Road Rash 3D Review (PlayStation)

The Road Rash titles on the Genesis remain some of my favorite “line-scrolling” racing games of all time.

Video Review: Dr. Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

Dr. Mario 64 was the final Mario game to grace the N64 game console in North America. It's also a sequel to one of my favorite puzzle games of all time, Dr. Mario.
