These games haven't got their sequals cuz of either publisher has gone " Interplay", or the games rights were sold off and left in a fault not knowing if it would get a swqual.

Heavy Metal Fak 2 was a very fun game with nice scenery and the broad was hot too for the game.

In its time it was one of my favorites. Very colorful game and I loved Julie's voice. Recently watched my daughter play it and my impression now was, "man that looks terrible". The models are attrocious. Shows how far we've come since then. I remember when it came out, it was top end eye candy. Now it's like, pretty bad. I liked it back in its day but couldn't get into it now. I could definitely get into a FAKK 3 though.

You wanna see soemthing that looks really bad, play Interstate 76 again if you can get it to run right on your computer. I installed it a while back again because I missed the fun game play and damn it looked like something that would have came out of Oprah after an all day buffet at Taco Bell. *

Uhg... yeah.

That was an awesome game, and very unique but the graphics are HORRIBLE. I really want to play it again some time, mostly just for the skirmish type games where you customize a vehicle and then pick a map, but the graphics actually make the game hard to play. Mostly because of the scenery cutoff distance and the flashing pixels that make everything look the same.

I can play a lot of old games that look like ass, but the original I76 is just too rough.

The Nitro expansion that had 3D hardware support looked much better but I don't think you could apply that to the original game.

The graphics weren't anything special, but the weapons were unique, the hand-to-hand combat was fun, the story was good, and it was a pretty long game for its genre. Hard as hell at times, too.

Oni was great. Bungie need to make a sequel and do a good job too!
