    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.

    On top of the fun factor, GoW is also a delightful treat for the senses with its artistic rendition of ancient Greece.

    Despite a few flaws, this is probably the best adventure game on the market today: a brilliantly plotted story with good characters, tough puzzles, and a 3D interface.

    Fans of console RPGs will recognize the smooth gameplay and brilliant Final Fantasty-style graphics. It does not have the depth of character interation or development as something like "Fallout" or "Baldur's Gate," but it is a fun ride, taking you into strange policies, and showing intriguing conspiracies and ambitions.

    It's nice to see that Midway has really listened to video game fans in the development of Mortal Kombat: Deception. The game is a considerable improvement over "Deadly Alliance."

    I love the game's soundtrack, which has old and newer hits, and completely fits the game's attitude. I never would have thought that skateboarding tricks and Johnny Cash would go together, but they do.

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

    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.

    Like a song you can't get out of your head. Its simple yet challenging gameplay will call you back again and again.

    The Tom Clancy games virtually invented the realistic shooter, and Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter moves that genre forward. If you're a fanatic for modern military action or you just like some brains behind your gunfire, you must pick up GRAW.

    Is it a fresh and unusual take on shooters, on horror survival, or both? Ah, let's just say it's fresh and unusual and leave it at that.

    The graphics are phenomenal, some of the best so far for the handheld system. The controls in the game are simple enough for anyone to jump right into, and the variety of gameplay will keep most players coming back for more.

    A solid follow-up to Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA), this game sticks to its predecessor's proven game play, adding updated graphics, a new story and a couple of extra Mario Bros., making for one of the most enjoyable DS titles to date.

    What the franchise loses in the transition from console to handheld, it makes up with intuitive control and the best multiplayer the DS has to offer. You'll be playing this one for a long time.

    If you're a fan of Final Fantasy VII, then this is the next best thing to a full-fledged sequel. If you aren't a fan, you'll still probably agree that it's an amazing visual experience.

    A great game with high replay value. This Square-Enix title will satisfy even the most hardcore RPG fans with its innovative gameplay and many features.

    Twilight Princess is a great game because it's full of so many activities, and just about every one of them not only finds a cool way to use the Wii control, they're just plain fun. This is a game full of creativity in its creature design, puzzle design, combat, and story.

    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.

    It is proof that a strong game accompanied by good, but not great visuals, can be a more compelling product than something with lots of flash, but no substance.

    If there is one fault with Soul Reaver it has to be some of the platform jumping required in the game. Not since the long ago days of my Atari 2600, have I been frustrated enough with a game to fling my controller across the room as I did while playing Soul Reaver.

    What especially impresses me is that although the presentation is smooth and competent, it is understated and lets the brilliant gameplay speak for itself.

    It may be a little too daunting for anyone other than hardcore gamers and/or boarders, otherwise, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater might very well be the perfect video game.

    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 patented pacing, mechanics and rewards of the adventure go down like a perfectly aged fine wine.

    Successful because it is simple. The game breaks down into a simple pattern that is perfect for the stop-and-start style of game play that is experienced when playing a handheld game.

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

    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.

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

    Super Mario Bros. Advance 2's awesome looking graphics are highly detailed and stay true to the game's source material, right down to the last pixel. Yes, down to the last pixel.

    Fun is the operative word here and this game delivers the brand of entertainment that gamers have come to expect from Sega and the Game Boy Advance.
