The 1st Annual One Man Awards
Written By: J. Michael Neal

The Visual Awards

Best Visuals (Technical) – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell (Xbox)

The one game this year you had to see to believe!


You think this looks good? You should see it in action!

Runner Up – Ratchet and Clank (PS2)

Best Visuals (Artistic) – Rez (PS2)

If you could fly inside Moby’s head, this is what it would look like.

Runner Up – Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox)

Most Atmospheric Visuals – Resident Evil 0 (GameCube)

Gorgeous, creepy as hell, and… really creepy… and gorgeous pretty much sums up the visuals in the latest Resident Evil title.

Runner Up – Splinter Cell (Xbox)

Most Cheerful Visuals – Mario Sunshine (GameCube)

Just what Mario vacationing on a tropical island should look like!

Runner Up – Kingdom Hearts (PS2)

Best Water – Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance (Multi)

God. Somebody’s got to put the engine behind the water effect in this game to some good use!

Runner Up – Splashdown (Multi)

Coolest Effect – Soft Bodies (Splinter Cell, Xbox)

Out of all the incredible programming tricks seen in this game, none is as remarkable as what was done with ‘soft bodies’. Try fooling around with the plastic curtain in the morgue to see what I mean.

Runner Up – Lighting (Splinter Cell, Xbox)

Special Achievement – Hitman 2: Stealth Assassin (Multi)

Rag doll physics. Who can’t enjoy flopping dead bodies?


  Fly my pretties, fly!

Runner Up – Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (For making the battle of Helm’s Deep every bit as epic in the game as it was in the movie.)

Worst Visuals – Gravity Games Bike: Street Vert Dirt (Multi)

"MY EYES! THE GOGGLES, THEY DO NOTHING!"

Runner Up – Twisted Metal Black: Online (PS2)
