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

    The best fighting game currently out for the Xbox.

    While the gameplay skews a little heavily towards the puzzle side, it’s worthwhile for anyone who is fan of a good game.

    Don’t play this game at night. Really, it’s just a bad idea. I mean, unless you have Sigourney Weaver or Arnold Schwarzenegger sitting in the chair next to you with a flamethrower and a smile, you’re never going to get to sleep afterwards.

    If you can get past the cheap deaths, bottomless pits and no save points, you’ll have a great time with this remake of a classic.

    In one of the most bizarre games I’ve ever played, Sonic team has taken some elements of "WarioWare" and combined it with the style and quirkiness of a game like "Space Channel 5."

    The only downfall is that you might find it a little short, but it still is one of the most unique titles I've played in a while and comes recommended.

    That's the big thing this title has going for it. It's fun to experience this amazing world, and if there was something focused on during the game design it was making sure that the world was a good place to go play in.

    My favorite mode is still the one where you must pick your team from a random group of players and go at and opponent in the same situation – putting square pegs in round holes has never been as much fun in the NFL.

    What makes War of the Monsters unique is its effect combination of ranged and close-up attacks.

    You should buy it because of the ridiculous courses, because of the energy level, because it’s a racing game that really does overwhelm you and in a lot of ways challenges you to be smart and play with your head – to a much greater extent than SSX.

    If you’re looking for a good action RPG game that you can just jump into and blow some stuff apart, it’s a pretty good bet that Crimson Sea 2 will fill your needs.

    As good as Madden 2004 is, I distinctly remember playing this game before. Twice actually. I know there isn’t a ton that can be changed, and I know that the console versions don’t change much, but there can be something done here I’m sure.

    It just seems to be not nearly as epic as "Grand Theft Auto". However playing for the different paths extends the lifetime of the game considerably.

    If you haven’t played this game, you need to. The game featured big tracks, jumps, engine heat, and a track editor. The only downfall was you couldn’t save tracks – the GBA fixes this.

    It's the best of its kind on the consoles with the historical details, cinematic gameplay and fun factor overwhelming some unoriginality and glitches.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It appeals to all gamers of any age, gender, or style of gaming. It has a bit for everyone, action, puzzles, adventure, comedy and it set in a popular film world.

    The sheer replay-ability and open-ended nature of Animal Crossing is what makes it so much fun to play. There are so many different things to do, so many bugs and fish to catch, and so much interior decoration.

    While the controls leave much to be desired, this is one of the few must-owns for any Playstation 2 owner.

    It's only too bad that a few extras couldn't be included. I would have loved to have a couple of the NES sequels on the disc. Also, all the technical aspects (graphics, sound) are dated (as they should be).

    The game is beautiful. Textures all look good and the game uses the right color and landscaping to make it feel perfect.

    Deadly Alliance has done the job which was required of it: make the series respectable again.

    A lot of fun, and definitely worthwhile if you have a lot of friends. For solitary gameplay though, you might want to pass this one up.

    A fan's dream come true. The game is true to the series, and will quench any fan's thirst for a video game based on the series. I recommend that most action fans look into BUFFY. Even with some of the annoying faults, the game isn't to be missed.

    If there's a single problem with the gameplay, it revolves around the overly simplified putting mechanisms. It's just too simple to make 30-40 ft. putts and I do it regularly.

    For a handheld like the DS this is the perfect little obsessive compulsive game to keep you occupied for five minutes while you wait for a table, or as a game your girlfriend can swipe from you and figure out that touching is good.

    This world is giant: get really high up in the air and you can see most of the videogame. That’s an incredible feat, something I don’t think I would have imagined feasible on the Playstation 2.

    The gameplay remains true to the original and the two-player mode is a blast. While there are some glitches with the multiplayer and the one-player mode is lackluster, the game still remains an arcade classic.
