Tolga races in with news of old-skool car malarky. In Knight Rider: The Game the player takes on the role of KITT and must complete several action-packed missions featuring all of the old-time favourites from the TV series, such as Michael Knight, Devon, Bonnie, Garth, KARR and Goliath.

TechNoir finds gaming goodness… I decided shortly after buying a netbook to explore its gaming potential. Figuring that there was not a lot of chance of playing anything recently released (except maybe games made by PopCap), I started to seek out older games that I’d heard of, but missed out on first time around. DethKarz was one such game. It plays like Wipeout on wheels, doesn’t need massive amounts of time (so is good if you’re playing on the train), and runs perfectly on this bottom-of-the-range netbook. I play it on my lunch break at work.

InstantSonic again with some gaming goodness! Released in 2003 for the PC, PS2, and X-Box, Beyond Good and Evil is a game in a genre all it’s own, mixing platforming, racing, stealth, action, and adventure into one bag. Add a bit of Pokemon Snap into this mix, minus the Pokemon, and it’s GotY every year! You assume the role of Jade, a photographer for hire and adventurer. Her world, Hyllis, is under constant attack from a alien race called the “Doms,” who seek to take control of and assimilate every being on the planet. Jade is hired for her prowess by an unknown benefactor to take pictures of a rare, elusive species of animal, but soon finds out things are not all what they seem… Continue Reading
T3hCynic found this, another oldie but goldie! Again, I remember this coming out, was a riot!
Muscle cars. 1970s muscle cars. 1970s muscle cars with WEAPONS. What’s not to love?
The creation of a simple batch file to kill explorer when you enter the game and bring it back up when you exit is required to make this game work nicely. This was an awesome game back in the day, and I’m happy that I’m finally able to play it without having to regress to an older version of Windows (currently running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit).
Reddwarffreak again, this time mobile and fast….
Hot Pursuit 2 draws primarily from the gameplay and style of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit; its emphasis was on evading the police and over-the-top tracks featuring lengthy shortcuts. As with the game’s predecessor, the player also has the option to play as a police officer trying to arrest speeders. To do so the player rams the speeding vehicle multiple times to disable it. The player must turn on their lights and sirens while in pursuit, and they automatically turn off after arresting the suspect. Police can call for a road block, spike strips, and request help from a helicopter to assist in chasing the target vehicle. At the end, the player is awarded for the cars busted. In the PlayStation 2 version this mode is called You’re the Cop mode while in the PC, Gamecube and Xbox versions it’s Be the Cop mode.
Comments: runs good on samsung n130 as long as you map the keys to something else as arrow keys are too small LOL and turn settings to low, medium-low 1024×600 naturally supported
