    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 minigames are easily one of the high-lights of the game.

    It’s a fan’s dream come true.

    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.

    Still the same girl you dated in high school, just with a new wardrobe and some nice jewelry. She’s still fun to hang out with, but nowhere you haven’t been already.

    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.

    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.

    One of the biggest improvements to the game is the full-fledged air battles.

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

    The game looks ten times more impressive that its predecessor, and really outshines almost any other console first-person shooter on the market right now. Explosions look extremely realistic, and the enemies are modeled and rendered pretty well.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    Perhaps the game with the longest playtime of any released in this series, ZELDA not only features a long quest, but a Master Quest that doubles the length of the game.

    The gameplay is very nice, but we’re lacking seriously in the visuals department. While the levels are huge, there is this thick fog around most of them.

    Midway has perfectly translated SPY HUNTER into the 3D world and everything feels just right.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    The levels are huge now. While they were pretty big before, they were basically straight forward. Not anymore.

    What’s so awesome is that you get to hear good music come together while playing an addictive game.

    With the game’s ability to trade and battle with friends, plus incredible amount of Pokemon to capture and train, you won’t be putting these two down anytime soon.

    An improvement in just about every way.

    The epitome of what a wrestling game should be like.
