    Was there ever any doubt that this game would rock?

    One of the best comic games to come along in years … and it's certainly the best X-Men game I've ever played.

    A pure celebration of the movies that inspired it. It is a terrific action game with a degree of depth and a great collection of surprises to collect. The game is also peerless in the presentation department and you can play it with a friend.

    This is one of the best games I've ever played involving cars, asphalt and disregard for public safety. It is a must have for any gamer's collection, anybody who ever had fun smashing hot wheels cars into each other, or anyone who likes destruction.

    Playing Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is like tearing open your presents Christmas morning and discovering to your shock that you got everything you asked for. No pairs of socks.

    Easily one of the best comic based video games to ever hit home consoles. It's a fanboy's dream in terms of living out the life of a superhero. Just remember that it's only a game … leave the underoos and silly string at home.

    The track designs in Double Dash are positively bursting with activity. If you thought Mario Kart was intense on the N64 (with it's notoriously cheap catch-up AI-which I'm happy to report is noticeably absent this time), you ain't seen nothing yet!

    In the spirit of the whole new-beginnings thing, let me lift the poster-slogan from the old '70s horror movie "Phantasm:" IF THIS ONE DOESN'T SCARE YOU, YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD!

    The finest, most polished, most complex and satisfying action-adventure videogame I've ever played...It blew me away because I was still swept up by its fairy tale-light, Disney-esque, bogusness, in spite of all my resistance.

    There’s poo humor galore, but there’s also sly satire, clever parody and deep belly-laughs aplenty. To say nothing of the challenging gameplay, engaging storyline and whacked-out characters.

    A pure classic if I've ever seen one. It is infectious fun with superb depth. This is a must buy that will keep you interested for months on end.

    Wow! What an excellent game! What's surprising about Mario Golf is just how sophisticated the simulation is. Fans of the real life sport will not be disappointed by Nintendo's cartoon interpretation of it, nor will fans of the Mario games be turned off by the complexity and "just one more time" challenge found on this cartridge.

    To say that Rayman 2 impressed me would be a tremendous understatement. About the only blemish the game has is its lack of any multiplayer contests.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Easily one of the most enjoyable and rewarding videogames I have ever played. The zany touches are quite brilliant but the challenging and original gameplay is what really makes this cartridge rocket.

    To say that the Snowspeeder freak in me is satisfied with this game would be an enormous understatement. This is one hell of a fulfilling interactive experience that plays and plays and plays.

    What it does have is a great story, fun puzzles, and epic battles. Any RPG fan would be absolutely nuts to pass on Paper Mario.

    Rockstar Games has done the unthinkable, turning murderous greed into an honest to God art form with Grand Theft Auto 3.

    It is a breath of fresh air for football fans that enjoy Madden, but are looking for something more innovative and different...[It's] better than "Madden NFL 2002" on the Xbox!

    The improved puck control alone makes this game a gourmet meal for diehard hockey fans.

    Still one of the great ones all these years later, even with dated graphics, poor voice acting, and the inherent limitations of a gamepad.

    Quite simply, this is a must-have flight simulator for war buffs or flight sim nuts alike, and will surely remain as a resident on your hard drive for a long, long time.

    Tony Hawk himself really likes the game and loves getting online with his PS2. You could end up playing against the "man" himself if you're the lucky type.

    The true King of Fighters, and it is a perfect showcase for what kind of games the Xbox is able to deliver.

    I have played SSBM every day since I got it and I cannot get enough of this game.

    I am absolutely thrilled with this game and already I can’t wait to see where Red Storm takes it next.

    Let’s trim it down to a single conclusion: if you like RPGs, get this game. Right now.

    First-rate graphics, awesome motion captured animation, smooth 3D scrolling, as well as authentic riders, bikes and tracks... It has it where it counts, in the fun category.

    It's fun, it's exciting, and it's challenging -whether played against the artificial intelligence or your big sister.

    The Pacific based action in CFS 2 includes stunning locations that really show that the battleground was truly a tropical paradise, and well-detailed aircraft to take to the skies. This is really one title not to be missed!

    The replay value of Shogun: Total War is immense.
