Four new reviews up, reintroducing Gamebits writer Robert Boyd and introducing newcomer Evan Wade. All four of today's reviews beef up the Xbox section, which someday will be as large as the console itself. Kudos to Namco for rushing copies of Dead to Rights to the press; few publishers are so astute as to recognize the importance of timely reviews.

Strangely enough, one envelope came to me from a publisher empty, save for the product info sheet. It seems someone helped themselves to a review copy of the game while it was in transit. In all my years of reviewing games, I've never seen this happen. I can imagine the beady-eyed evildoer, hunching his back and laughing wickedly at my misfortune… darn him.
