    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.

    Jedi Knight II ranks up there with the giants like "X-Wing Alliance" and the original "Jedi Knight." It's just that good.

    With tasty graphics and gameplay that is sheer madness, Half-life 2 is sweeter than a chocolate-and-honey lollipop coated with sugar, and it provides twice the rush.

    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!

    Employs the most effective and rewarding controls ever developed for a platform-action game... An instant classic.

    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.

    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.

    It may be the best PC game of a good many years. I can picture other gamesmakers checking out the game, and then just surrendering...I am floored by this game.

    Vegas has drool-inducing visuals, extremely good AI, and controls so intuitive and fitting that you’ll think the gang from Ubisoft Montreal came over to take your measurements before they sent you the game.

    One of those games that is so good, even the credits rock.

    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.

    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.

    It is just the "Total Package" (yeah I know, I am embarrassed of myself for that one), combining great gameplay with fantastic visuals to create one of the finest sports game ever.

    • 95 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    If you play this game over and over like I did, then you will find something new and challenging each and every time you plug it in.

    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!

    As good as it gets when it comes to platform games. I even like this game better than "Super Mario Advance."

    Above all else, this game is spooky, stylish and most importantly, fun from beginning to end.
