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

    The one other element that just makes this game so damn fun to play is the heist movie feel.

    The most interesting mode is a capture the flag type mode. I love it in first-person shooters so it only makes sense that I would love it here. While there is some lag in multiplayer games, it isn’t enough to make the game unplayable.

    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.

    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 level designs are, quite frankly, ingenious. Featuring curves, ramps, narrow paths, moving platforms, and obstacles of all kinds, the levels are as awe-inspiring as they are frustrating.

    There are a lot of difficult levels, a lot of difficult enemies. It’s awesome. I appreciate a good challenge in today’s games, and JAK II offers it. It’s plenty long too, and will keep you playing for a good time.

    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.

    What’s so cool about the game is that anyone can pick up and play, and can get into the deep simulation that the game is. I like that fact a lot. [Score = A+]

    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.

    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.

    If you’re obsessed with the series, though, and love the super hard modes, you might want to pick the game up. This is also the definitive version for folks who might not have played the game before either.

    The best party game in history.

    The best Sonic game released since "Sonic CD."

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

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

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

    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.

    An awesome sequel to Frequency and one of the best music games on the PlayStation 2.

    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.

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

    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.

    A treat for fans of the original, but it won’t blow you away in any particular aspect.

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

    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.

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

    The player models are much more realistic, players show emotion, and pretty much everything has been given a facelift. The animation, framerate, textures - it’s all very impressive.

    Gets old fast. The multiplayer gameplay grows stale and can be boring, and the one-player game only takes so long to master, or become bored with. A golf fan might eat it up, but your typical gamer will probably put it down after a few days of extended play.

    The best wrestling game on the market for any platform.
