Spotlight: Vintage game review

These reviews have been written in a short time period from late 2000 until spring 2001, when this page was calles RPG WorldWide and later on RPG Xanadu. I originally lost the reviews on a harddisk crash in late 2001, but thanks to archive.org, I was able to resurface them.
