    The game is full of the little details that define greatness. If Warlords Battlecry II isn't one of the early leaders for real-time strategy game of the year I'll eat my magical staff.

    For those who like the unique challenge of timed racing and the strategies that off-road rallies require, Screamer 4X4 is a must have.

    The style of the graphics however, does not appeal to me, technologically impressive though they are. It's the same way I don't like jazz music, but I know there is good and bad jazz, and that it requires talented musicians to perform it, but the genre of music just doesn't do it for me.

    Even if Madden NFL 2001 weren’t the only game in town, it would still be one of the best football games ever.

    Its mists, textures, particle blood sprays and lighting make it the best-looking shooter on the PlayStation 2, and maybe even a competitor for best-looking overall game.

    One of the coolest things about Fable is how your character's abilities and appearance change based on your choices. If you've been good, you'll look pure and sweet and innocent. If you've been bad, you'll look like you're touring with Marilyn Manson.

    I'm hooked. It's been a long while since I found myself staying up until 3:00 in the morning for days on end. Come to think of it, the last time I did that was when I used to play "Starsiege: Tribes."

    Red Dead Revolver could very well be THE game to keep the Old West genre from riding off into the sunset once and for all.

    Striking graphics, realistic environments, interesting and diverse characters--what’s not to like? Really nothing.

    More of the same "get me outta this 'bot-infested labyrinth" madness that made the first two games so deservedly popular. But thanks to the latest tech, the 'bot-infested labyrinths of Descent 3 are more nightmarish and addictive than ever before. Don't even bother trying to resist it.

    It was a long wait for the sequel, but Pyro spent the time innovating a game that was already innovative to begin with. You're gonna love this one.

    Combining solid game play, stellar physics, and some of the most vibrant graphics available on the PC, Age of Empires III is the alpha male of the RTS pack.

    Even with the dark-screen frustrations and camera hurdles, Tony Hawk 2 is, without a doubt, the best interpretation of skateboarding ever created for a portable game system.

    Duke Nukem 64, while certainly not the fulfilling banquet that Rare's Goldeneye proved to be this year, is definitely meaty enough to fatten you up. Even if you feel like you're drowning in first person shooters these days, Duke 64 delivers enough innovative secrets and bullet riddled action to silence your cries.

    It's just so frickin' wild and cool. You can get whole forests to come to life and attack your enemies, build huge monsters like the Hydra (yes, it grows more heads as it takes damage), and pound the enemy city into a crater with meteor storms.

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

    An excellent action game. Or is it strategy? Or perhaps action-strategy? Whatever it is, it is damn fun.

    Adds plenty to Diablo II, and not just a new episode. It actually changes the entire game from start to finish.

    Right from the opening strains of the song played in the opening movie, it's evident that Fallout 2 is going to be awesome. And it is. It perfectly recaptures what made the first so great.

    The game has plenty of swearing, and lots of gore. I like running around nearly dead--you leave a big trail of red wherever you go. Ok, so maybe it is over the top, but at least somebody still has some cajones out there.

    One of the best games released so far for Nintendo's 32-bit handheld.

    Everything that fans of AD&D have always wanted in a computer game. The only thing that will prevent it from being perfect for everyone is the very fact that it follows the AD&D rules so faithfully.

    Turok's flashy stuff notwithstanding, it is the game's incredibly rich and complex level construction and enemy AI that will keep your heart pounding and the sweat beading until the very end.

    There has not been a flight combat sim released on any console system that can even come close to the quality and value of this title.

    Jaw-dropping graphics, sound and gameplay herein combine and form a lone fabulous, must-have package.

    The audio is extremely well done because it is a major component of gameplay, not just presentation. I don't think I've ever spent as much time listening to a game as I did with this one.

    Might I remind you this is the game that finally combines using the Force and starship combat, a concept that is so cool it could chill all the beer at five consecutive Oktoberfests.

    I strangely feel a very strong maternal instinct towards my monkey (don't tell my children). I find myself telling him out loud what a good boy he is while rubbing his belly or explaining why I have to spank him.

    A well-told story set on a lush planet with varied environments and a strong action heroin makes FAKK2 one of the best 3rd person action games around.

    Added bonuses like the inclusion of the original side-scrolling turbo-cooling itty-bitty-bit masterpiece plus a tremendous hybrid of classic and new with 3D-ified straight and narrow, linear and delineated track design adds great gobs of icing to the cake.
