    Overall, this world is one you are not going to want to miss and I highly recommend it.

    The Hawk series soars to its highest echelon in its Xbox incarnation by besting the other earlier releases on the PS2 and GameCube, especially in the graphics department and giving meaning to the old saying "saving the best for last."

    • 98 Critic Score
    A stunning, involving experience that, though not for everyone, will appeal to both the gamer looking for a long, structured action/adventure game and the one looking for loosely organized chaos.

    A spectacular game.

    I simply know that as a total package there is no game on the planet that can captivate me more than THPS3 and for many hours on end no less.

    I already can‘t wait to see what the series has in store next.

    The best survivor horror game ever made. It's also one of the best action games I've played in a very long time.

    Taken together, with its hundreds of moves per fighter and addictive modes and polished graphics, Virtual Fighter 4: Evolution is a marvelous game.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    It’s a fairly simple concept but its complexity and the way it draws you in is amazing. And the replay value is through the roof!
    • 95 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    Only the graphical bugs, slow-down and other nit picks associated with the fact that the game is pushing the aging PS2 to its limits keeps this from being the first perfect entry into the series.

    With around 10-15 hours of play, outstanding music, the best gameplay system ever conceived, and the two original Prince of Persia's included…you will certainly get your money's worth with the Prince.

    Everything about it is done right. Control is easy to grasp, the audio, graphic, and level designs are top shelf, the storytelling is head and shoulders above most other games, and the Insanity Meter ads a sick twist – it gets the adrenaline pumping.

    • 96 Critic Score
    An absolute must have for any serious hockey fanatic.
    • 95 Metascore

    Better physics, smarter opponents, and a huge leap in its visual presentation make GT3 a racer well worth playing.

    The sound effects are even more disturbing than previous games with crunching bone sounds that will leave most people cringing the first few times.

    It combines a balance of tense action, puzzle solving, story, and fun that has yet to be equaled on in the FPS arena.

    The one factor of the game that can be deemed perfect, revolutionizing, unique, fun, addictive, and challenging, has to be the gameplay system. Bioware has created a different type of RPG, for the non-RPG types.

    The stats engine of All-Star Baseball 2004 is top of the line.

    The most impressive feature this time around isn't Pandora Tomorrow's lighting and shading effects or it's near perfect gameplay. It's the playability over Xbox Live
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The combination of style, wit, creativity, spycraft, cool locations, great gadgets and the overall sense of fun make this one a must have for FPS fans and a recommended game for casual gamers.

    As a lifelong fan of both text-based and table-top baseball games, I can honestly say that OOTP4 is the best baseball game I have ever played. The recent releases of its two biggest competitors, "Baseball Mogu"l and "PureSim Baseball," are both top-notch, but, in the end, OOTP4 out options them and certainly provides a smoother, more compelling re-creation of America’s pastime.

    Whether you’re a fighting aficionado or a green rookie, there’s plenty to enjoy about this game.

    With all of the play modes, excellent multi-player setup, great graphics, and absolutely amazing level design, this game stands high as a shining example of what a first person shooter should be.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Every convention of the FPS genre is done to perfection, tweaked, and then turned on its ear. Only the multi-player options of the game disappoint. Still, if the game featured no multiplayer options at all, it does so many things right that it would still be in the running for Game of the Year.

    A perfect introduction to the game.

    The new setting is far more appealing than the modern Liberty City of the original. And it seems more dynamic and interactive also, since players can explore inside buildings and rob businesses, which could not be done in the original.

    • 95 Critic Score
    A brilliant and highly polished RPG masterpiece.

    Without peer in Flight Simulators. If you only have one flight sim, this is the one!

    With the engrossing single-player missions, stellar multiplayer, and the incredibly detailed world editor, WC3 is my early choice for PC Game of the Year.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Great quests, solid story, very good voice acting, challenging battles, and engaging dialogue and characters make this an RPG that stands head and shoulders above the competition.
