    Astoundingly beautiful. From the sunset, to the rain effects, to the guard animation - everything is very well done. There’s dynamic cloth effects, beautiful lighting and most importantly, some incredible textures to round it off. [Grade = A+]

    The levels are huge now. While they were pretty big before, they were basically straight forward. Not anymore.

    From a graphical perspective, Insomniac continues to amaze me with their vibrant worlds that just explode with color.

    Up Your Arsenal may be the best game on the PlayStation 2. This is "Mario 64" level quality folks. If you own a PS2 and don't play this game, I'll come to your house personally with a Sheepinator and remove you from the gaming gene pool.

    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.

    What’s so cool about the game is that anyone can pick up and play, and can get into the deep simulation that the game is. I like that fact a lot. [Score = A+]

    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.

    The best party game in history.

    From the little details on the cars up to the driving physics, everything is dead on. I know a little bit about racing concepts (speed limits? What are those?), and the game executes them with near perfection.

    With the incredible soundtrack and the emotions that the game invokes, Frontline is one of the best games of the year.

    One of the best games to hit the market this year, portable or otherwise.

    Probably one of the best looking games on the Xbox, no questions asked.

    This game really shines with its environment models. Every part of the environment seems real, from the grass swaying in the breeze or the ripples on the water as you run through it.

    The one other element that just makes this game so damn fun to play is the heist movie feel.

    While the game obviously plays like a 2D shooter, the backgrounds are 3D rendered and the game just combines the technology of today with the old-school gameplay perfectly.

    An awesome sequel to Frequency and one of the best music games on the PlayStation 2.

    One of the best, most challenging games ever made. Ninja Gaiden is as close to perfect as a game can get. The game sports cutting edge graphics, great sound and the best fighting engine that has ever been created.

    The graphics are beautiful. The back drops are excellent and the character models look great. Color abounds in this eye-candy filled title. I wish some of the animations and moves had been changed up a bit, but what are you going to do?

    While the game might be old - it's still one of the best games ever made. [Grade = A+]

    Even if you're alone, the sheer amount of options, trophy collecting and hidden characters make this game worth playing again and again. It's easy to learn but incredibly challenging to master and collect all the trophies.

    The player models are much more realistic, players show emotion, and pretty much everything has been given a facelift. The animation, framerate, textures - it’s all very impressive.

    The game is gorgeous. The CG sequences are absolutely beautiful.

    Without a doubt the most realistic basketball game ever to hit the market. It’s got everything a fan could want: franchise mode, online mode, create a player, and the best gameplay around.

    One of the biggest improvements to the game is the full-fledged air battles.

    With the game’s ability to trade and battle with friends, plus incredible amount of Pokemon to capture and train, you won’t be putting these two down anytime soon.

    The best football game of the season. Unlike a lot of football games, the changes to this game aren’t just cosmetic. The result is the most realistic football game you can own.

    What’s so awesome is that you get to hear good music come together while playing an addictive game.

    The game looks ten times more impressive that its predecessor, and really outshines almost any other console first-person shooter on the market right now. Explosions look extremely realistic, and the enemies are modeled and rendered pretty well.

    The gameplay is where NFL 2K3 really shines.
