    The graphics are stunning, especially some of the effects on your visor. From steam fogging it and forming condensation, to water running off of it, there are a lot of cool visual effects. The morph ball transition is seamless and gorgeous.

    What’s awesome about the gameplay is that you can just pick up a controller and start fighting. Three buttons (block, kick, punch) are all that are needed to master a basic set of moves.

    As I played through the game there was no slowdown and everything looked crisp and just right.

    The sound is incredible, though. With some of the best music I've ever heard in a videogame, the game is haunting and chilling in all the right places.

    Offers gamers a quality racing title with weapons, and the ability to keep players' attention for years.

    What makes Pikmin so fun is that you are seeing the world from new eyes, and exploring large beautiful environments.

    Home Field Advantage is huge in this game, and momentum for INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS is just as large. In one game, my QB had a half where he completed two passes, and then a second half where he tossed six touchdowns. It’s amazing the difference in your players based on confidence level and that all feeds off of home field advantage.

    Another giant step for this relatively young series.

    I honestly can't fathom going back to driving a car in the next installment of "Grand Theft Auto" – the world is just so much cooler when you can explore the whole city, meaning everything up in the air as well. Manhattan becomes a giant jungle gym for Spider-Man to play in, and it is a blast.

    It’s a fan’s dream come true.

    The most interesting mode is a capture the flag type mode. I love it in first-person shooters so it only makes sense that I would love it here. While there is some lag in multiplayer games, it isn’t enough to make the game unplayable.

    The best Sonic game released since "Sonic CD."

    There is a decidedly cool sense of style to Ratchet & Clank. The game feels much like the classic sci-fi movies, very rounded and artistic, almost retro at times.

    This is a game that needs to be played on Surround Sound (Pro Logic) or with a good set of headphones. It needs to be loud in the room, and it needs to be dark. It should be like any good horror movie.

    From a graphical standpoint, the game is mind-blowing. The characters and vehicles all look good, but what's really impressive is the backgrounds around each race and how fast they go screaming by.

    The multiplayer is the best reason to play the game. It’s not worth it for the one-player alone, rather for the great experience with a group.

    A fabulous game. The way it submerges you in George Lucas' universe and takes you on a wild ride is unmatched.

    From the moment the first cutscene runs, you are totally sucked in. Your heart rate jumps as you walk through the hallways, and no feeling is worse than being out of ammo and wounded… everything about this game sucks you into the role of the characters.

    The cel-shaded visuals look beautiful, as does the stunning anime sequences scattered throughout the game.

    Perhaps the game with the longest playtime of any released in this series, ZELDA not only features a long quest, but a Master Quest that doubles the length of the game.

    There's quite a bit of value in the title. Tons of subquests, and a second quest after you complete it, but the main run-through is just not as satisfactory as Ocarina's was.

    Midway has perfectly translated SPY HUNTER into the 3D world and everything feels just right.

    The sound is the best part of the game, with all of the fight songs, and one of the best crowds ever.

    There are a lot of difficult levels, a lot of difficult enemies. It’s awesome. I appreciate a good challenge in today’s games, and JAK II offers it. It’s plenty long too, and will keep you playing for a good time.

    The best wrestling game on the market for any platform.

    Its great controls, super-realistic physics and astounding graphics will leave you searching for a towel.

    It brings everything from the Playstation HAWK 2 and crams it onto Nintendo’s portable.

    More than just an expansion - technically, I think the game could be considered a sequel with all the depth that is in the game. If you have Reign of Chaos, this is a must buy for you and RTS fans everywhere.

    This is the best game to be released this year, even eclipsing "Wind Waker." [Grade = A+]
