    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.

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

    The best party game in history.

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

    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 gameplay is where NFL 2K3 really shines.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Logitech has done a lot to help out with this with its new force feedback steering wheel. With a full 900 degrees of rotation, the wheel will fight you around turns, and gives gamers the best possible control interface for this masterpiece of a racing simulator. I can’t imagine playing GT4 without it.

    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.

    Although the characters you meet along the way try to guide you through the game, Arcanum really leaves most of what happens up to the player.

    Sometimes a friend and I just sit back and see how many enemies we can take out before we die - forget the mission, fighting bad guys is the way to go!

    One of the best survival horror games on the market, even giving RESIDENT EVIL a run for its money.

    The camera has been improved a good deal, although there are still a few times when you’ll be racking your brain and craning your neck to see where your character needs to go.

    The epitome of what a wrestling game should be like.

    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.

    It’s filled with action, and has enough RPG elements to keep it interesting (although the replay value would be subdued for a non-fan because the extras are for the fans).

    Tons of replay value, decent graphics, good sound, and a lot of fun.

    While the gameplay seems like it’d be perfect for the "kill enemies, wash, rinse, repeat" syndrome, it never gets to that point due to some excellent pacing, not to mention that the fighting never seems to get too repetitive.

    With this level of A.I. Allied Assault is no walk in the park.

    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.

    A Dragonball fan’s dream. It is the first "true" American game based on the series, and Infogrames really came through on this one.

    The gameplay is addictive; there are tons of items in the environment to destroy, tricky enemies to sneak by, and some puzzles to figure out.

    The visuals have been given an upgrade too. Now some of the songs feature the music video for the song playing in the background. It’s really cool and one of the better features to be implemented in the game.
