    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."

    Multiplayer deathmatch modes work just as you’d imagine them, although I can’t be but a bit disappointed. Unlike a game like "UT 2004", Doom 3 only comes with the option for four-player deathmatches, and there is no Co-Op mode like there will be in the upcoming Xbox version.

    The reason to play isn’t the gameplay, rather the story and the cinematics.

    The physics engine makes everything look better as it is very lifelike.

    The biggest problem with this is that the backgrounds don’t look as rich and colorful as they did in the two previous installments.

    Fans of Transformers will love this.

    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.

    The sandbox nature and tight, polished gameplay make this one of the first games in 2005 you should play.

    I like how the game has been tightened up. The new driving missions are much better, the difficulty has been toned down (though maybe a bit too much), and the new weapon mods and Light Jak powers add something new.

    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.

    The defensive improvements and online leagues are a huge step in the right direction.

    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.

    Easily one of the most addictive party games I have ever played.

    For fans of the series, this may be the best game yet. It combines a Classic and Underground mode into the same game, adds new gameplay elements, and really captures the feel of a bunch of skaters goofing around.

    There are tons of bright, varied colors and it’s definitely eye-candy. This isn’t the best I’ve seen (Iridion 3D, Pitfall and Tony Hawk 2 look incredible) but it’s still pretty. I still can’t believe this is all on a handheld.

    Everything from the design of the bosses to the absolutely incredible levels screams personality.

    If nothing else, the four-player mode of the game is worth the entire purchase price. Highly addictive and fun, you’ll be playing this for hours.

    Camelot made a great game engine, and until someone can come along with something better, this is the game to beat.

    There is some slowdown from time to time, which typical of the platformers of this age. For the most part, though, it's a perfect translation.

    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.

    Where the game really shines in my opinion is the control. I don’t think I’ve ever played a Game Boy Advance game that handles as well as this one.

    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.

    A vast improvement over the first game. The game is much sharper in the gameplay and in graphics, and is a much more enjoyable experience all around.

    One cool thing about this game is that, for owners of Deadly Alliance, you can hook up with this game and go head to head with a friend.

    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.

    While you may feel like you're in familiar territory if you've put in many hours on any of the previous games, the series always presents new challenges and addicting gameplay along the way.

    Probably the best Dragon Ball Z game to date, and I’m talking about any platform.

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