Games; This is bigger than Cartman's butt.

SOUTH PARK

Nintendo

WARNING: if offended by (beep) crude language, do not play this (beep) game and close your (beep) ears to all (beep) broadcast media over the next three (beep) months.

South Park should come with a built-in beeper beeper - pager  and, since it doesn't and is going to be bigger than Cartman's big fat butt, the only way to keep the kids away from it is to hide it while you guide Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and the rest of the brood through a series of adventures designed to save South Park.

A mysterious comet, that only approaches once every 666 years, is heading towards the town, the turkeys have turned killer, Cartman's mum is kidnapped by aliens and son of Skuzzlebutt is out of control.

The South Park heroes have to try and save the day, armed with a variety of weapons ranging from cow launchers to the Auto Egger that uses a live sniper chicken. This may be a PC game but it isn't a pc game ... these six one-player episodes are as nothing compared to the multi-play possibilities. Here you can get three pals and draw from even more characters and battle each other in a series of games, including Kick The Baby.

Just a couple of minutes into the first of the episodes is enough to tell any parent that wee Shooey, if he doesn't get to watch South Park on telly, isn't going to be allowed to play this.

This is when you have to take on the killer turkeys ravaging South Park, armed only with snowballs.

It isn't easy ... the snowballs can stuff those turkeys if you hit them right, but they aren't the most powerful weapon around.

ALL-STAR BASEBALL 2000

N64/PC CD Rom CD ROM Compact Disk Read Only Memory  

NOW you can recreate the whole summer by the diamond thanks to All Star Baseball All Star Baseball is one of the two most popular baseball board games of the last sixty years, and has been honored as one of the fifty most influential American board games of all time. It was manufactured by Cadaco-Ellis and designed by baseball player Ethan Allen (1904-1993).  2000.

All you have to supply is the skill, hot dogs and sodas.

Impressively, this comes with a huge list of stars from the American baseball organisation, the MLBPA MLBPA Major League Baseball Player's Association  - 700 of them.

Since Scots won't have heard of any of them, it's down to the playability to win them over.

A superb 3D sports graphics engine and over 600 motion captured playing moves means that it has probably not struck out.

Although still quite an obscure American sport for Scots, this is well worth working out the rules and going for a home run.

Boring, predictable and with the kind of sub-platform action we know and loathe, this should be avoided like the plague.

SIM CITY 3000

PC CD Rom

THERE are few games that have had quite the shattering effect Sim City had when it was first released.

There had been "God games" before - complex simulations that let you run the lives of the little computer people - but nothing matched the sheer pleasure of being able to build your own city, watch an eager population move in and its industries and commerce grow.

If you grew tired of demanding people, rising taxes and a dodgy dodgy - Synonym with flaky. Preferred outside the US  water system, you could throw in a random fire, earthquake, or even alien attack.

Since then the game has gone from strength to strength.

Town planners and architects have claimed it to be the world's first edu- game - try running a subway system round your underground power and water conduits.

The release of Sim City 2000 brought a whole range of new features and graphics to the game and a whole host of new fans.

There have been the inevitable spin-off programmes - Sim Tower took town- planning vertical and, Sim Ant let you plan out a bug's life - but nothing has ever matched the original Sim City.

Where could it go from SC 2000? I mean, the millennium hasn't even arrived, so what would you even call the next generation?

You can't say Maxis aren't confident. Enter Sim City 3000, 1000 years ahead of schedule.

At first it all appears to be just a number of cosmetic changes, the graphics are greatly improved.

You can zoom into the power of five, rather than just three - right down to pavement level, to see how the proles PROLES. Progeny, such issue as proceeds from a lawful marriage; and, in its enlarged sense, it signifies any children.  are coping with your design genius.

But the real improvements lie at the very heart of the game. The logic is greatly improved and the nature of the construction process is also easier.

This all results in a game that is easier to play and more fluid.

There are still all the hidden extras that any Sim player has come to expect, from special buildings to characters who pop up and offer you vast sums of cash.

And a few new ones that, as yet, remain for cheats columns everywhere

Sim City 3000 is more than a simple sequel, it's a game that takes a concept and develops it to new levels. A superb piece of game writing that everyone should own.

THE Dreamcast continues to go from strength to strength in Japan, despite the news of the new Playstation's impressive spec. Thanks to his latest outing on the Dreamcast there has even been a resurgence in the popularity of everyone's favourite hedgehog - Sonic. The crazy sights of the early 90s are beginning to reappear as hardcore fans are found dressing up as Sonic and attending Sonic parties, where the whole range of games are played in marathon sittings. Deeply strange. Clearly, these people they don't get out half enough.
