    The game is supposed to be pure action and loads of fun, and Fistfull of Boomstick certainly delivers.

    Liberty City looks phenomenal and there's plenty of life and atmosphere that impresses. The different textures, solid framerate and incredible diversity make this one of the most impressive PS2 games yet.

    The best Warcraft game, possibly the best strategy game, released yet.

    The big improvement over the PlayStation game is the laws that govern each battlefield... It helps diversify the battles quite a bit and keeps things interesting.

    A fantastic game that no GameCube owner should be without. I enjoyed it and my girlfriend absolutely loved it.

    ICO
    One of the biggest things ICO has going for it is the incredible environmental graphics. The power of the Playstation 2 creates a world that you can almost feel and smell. [Grade = A+]

    The minigames are easily one of the high-lights of the game.

    Probably the best racer currently on the Xbox. While the game does have a few flaws here and there, if you have any interest in racing at all, don't look any further than this.

    The sheer size-factor of the game is overwhelming.

    You might be surprised that this game isn't an Xbox game when you first see it on the TV. It looks great and while it does have some telltale signs of being a PS2 game, it's still absolutely gorgeous.

    The biggest improvement though comes in the form of the framerate.

    The first thing gamers will notice is that the levels are huge, the goals are plentiful, and basically its everything you know and love about Tony Hawk, except bigger.

    What does change up quite a bit is the amount and complexity of the puzzles in the game. It's actually pretty refreshing to have so many situations that require something besides combat.
    • 93 Metascore

    One of the best Xbox games out there, unfortunately, by the end it has been repetitive and linear a bit too long.
    • 88 Metascore

    Incredibly fast, but the Xbox shows no signs of slowdown during gameplay. And really, it's saying a lot, but Jet Set Radio Future is probably the best looking Xbox game on the market right now.

    The beat ‘em up is a genre that has quietly faded to the side and hasn’t had many revolutions on the consoles in recent years. X-Men: Legends takes that style of gameplay, adds a ton of depth to it, four-player support and quite frankly is one of the best X-Men games I’ve ever played.

    While there may not be many differences between this game and its predecessor, this still is the best motorcycle game on the Xbox.

    The game looks awesome for a GBA title. The 3D engine used for the game looks great, and since there isn’t a whole lot to animate in space and there are only a few ships on-screen at one time, there isn’t much slowdown on this beautiful game.

    My jaw dropped when I saw the Raiders white road jerseys, the shadows and player models and even the animation. This game looks absolutely stunning and is the best looking football game have ever seen.
    • 95 Metascore

    There’s not really a grand innovation to the gameplay, and the concept of seeing how much havoc you can cause hasn’t changed much from the last game.

    Fans of the series and of great action-RPGs in general should quickly don The Minish Cap. While it's not the longest or most challenging Zelda ever, it's more than worth a purchase.

    There’s a lot of attention to detail in the levels and environments, from weather effects to volumetric lighting. It all makes up for the simple character models and sometimes less than spectacular visuals.

    The most disappointing part though was completely raping each boss in the game with a flurry of missiles. There is little challenge. This shortens the game into four or five hours, making it quick and dirty for game players.

    It is best with four friends though: my girlfriend, two other friends and I discovered this after we lost 10 hours of our lives in one sitting. If that doesn't say something about this game, nothing else will.

    To be perfectly honest, this is one of the best looking Game Boy Advance games on the market...[and] one of the best arcade style racers on the Game Boy Advance.
    • 84 Metascore

    Still one of the best NES games ever, and perfect for the GBA.

    It's an absolutely beautiful game and really sucks you right into the world. I don't know that I've been as immersed in an RPG since "Knights of the Old Republic."

    While the gameplay is pretty tight, it’s the addition of charisma and squad mates that sets the game apart.

    With a good plot to keep you involved in the one player action and huge networking capabilities, this is one that will keep you entertained for quite some time. Just blow stuff up. Oh, and blow stuff up. And don’t forget to blow stuff up.

    Unlike "Steel Batalion" which could take months to learn how to play, you can learn how to play MechAssault in just a matter of minutes.
