    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.

    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.

    One of the best Sea-Doo racing games released.

    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.

    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.

    To our delight, Rage has done a wonderful job of putting the movie into game form, and at the same time has made a game that is actually good.

    I guess the biggest problem is that SMUGGLER’S RUN 2 is point-to-point racing.

    The great graphics and sound enhance the realism already set forth in the engine (no pun intended). If you like trains at all, pick up Train Simulator.

    I really enjoyed listening to the music of Summoner 2. The orchestrated music is done perfectly, and really fits the game’s theme.

    While the voice acting isn't a total waste, it seems like the writers decided to have the characters babble on about nothing at times.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    The problem is that it just gets old quick. Lots of enemies, attack, cure, wash, rinse, repeat. It gets old.

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

    The one downfall of this game is that it becomes easy over a short amount of time. Even against the toughest teams, the game becomes fairly simple once you have mastered how to scramble and pass efficiently.

    A game that any player can just jump into and have a great time.

    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.

    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 biggest addition I could ask for would be some sort of hard drive support for online downloads.

    It's the best of its kind on the consoles with the historical details, cinematic gameplay and fun factor overwhelming some unoriginality and glitches.

    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.

    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."

    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.

    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.

    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 updated version features a brand new dash feature allowing the player to navigate dungeons and towns much more quickly. This is a very welcome addition as in the original game making your way through these areas quickly became tedious.

    The biggest downside to the game is that it is very deep and does require a lot of patience. For instance, after you complete your turn, you have to sit through the computer’s entire turn. After a while this can get tedious, especially in a long battle.
