    Nobody has developed a perfect basketball sim. Visual Concepts however has come the closest with NBA 2K2. By far this is the best hoops title on the market today.

    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.

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

    Outstanding visuals, an ominous orchestral score, a well-scripted story with real plot twists, excellent voice acting and a host of brand new ships and weapons, Cataclysm is a sequel to Homeworld as much as "Aliens" was a sequel to "Alien." It’s better, has more action, and plays longer.

    Its innovative combat system, addictive click and kill adventuring, and solid story make it a title that keeps reviewers up late.

    Currently the high water mark for the PS2.

    Through careful scripting, disturbing audio-visual tricks, solid gameplay and a judicious use of cinematics, Fatal Frame manages to convey the disarming sense of feeling one's sanity crumble under the assault of otherworldly influences...At least, that's what the Voices told me to say.

    The most well-rounded simulation in this highly-competitive genre.

    Aside from the talented AI, there are a lot more impressive game features. One of the first things to come to mind is the incredibly deep playbook and coverage set.

    The massive number of features and solid gameplay more than make up for any of my minor gripes.

    A must-see RTS experience with a rich single-player campaign and a whopping 14 styles of multiplayer competition.

    The number of different ways you can play GTA III is astonishing.

    The thing that I enjoy most about this arcade style hockey is the big hits. You can actually practice the many skills you will need in this game, including driving your opponent through the glass.

    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.

    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.

    This top-down RPG is without a doubt the best PC RPG we have played in years. That's not an exaggeration. Years. I can't think of another game that comes even close to Fallout's excellent character generation and skill system, great story, and classy delivery.

    What a classy, clever package. Without a doubt, Extreme-G has the coolest futuristic atmosphere I've seen on the Nintendo 64. Probe may have lifted design ideas for its game but they obviously took the time to borrow from the best. Extreme-G is simply magnificent to watch.

    I don't listen to rap music and I know very little about it, but I am enthralled by this game's easy control; wild over-the-top moves; and enjoyable story mode.

    This is a great game for those who tire of the endless tank-rushes of real-time strategy games past. Victory is determined not by the speed of the clicks, but rather the strength of decisions.

    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.

    The kind of product Westwood is largely known for--complete, compelling, full of great little touches, and just generally elegant (which is a funny thing to say about a game of pirates, pillage and plunder, but so be it).

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

    A silky smooth wonder. The absolute freedom that can be yours in this game is unprecedented. With a large screen television and proper stereo amplification, Pilot Wings 64 truly takes us where no console game has ever gone before.

    Just when Age of Empires II was starting to seem a little played out, Ensemble Studios has made it a game that might just keep you up late again with The Conquerors expansion.

    The game is beautiful and offers plenty of platform gaming excitement that wouldn’t be possible on the PS2 or even the GameCube.

    The worlds and characters the designers have created here will charm your boots off.

    If you want to get online and play action games against other people, Tribes Aerial Assault is a must. The consoles have never seen anything like it before.

    A game that makes you feel like you're sucking on a IV drip that's pumping adrenalin.

    The system has its fair share of racing titles to be sure, but most of those games feature balloon-headed cartoon drivers or vehicles that jump over city buildings. What a breath of fresh air then, to be able to play a game on the Nintendo 64 that is at once stunning to behold and completely satisfying in its realism.

    The Jedi Starfighter is quick, but only has lasers. But...you can use the Force against enemy ships. Without a doubt, this is the big draw, and it's way cool.
