1st Annual One Man Awards
The Visual Awards
Best Visuals (Technical) – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
The one game this year you had to see to believe!
You think this looks good? You should see it
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
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,
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
"MY EYES! THE GOGGLES, THEY DO NOTHING!"
Runner Up – Twisted Metal Black: Online (PS2)
