    Such a well-crafted, polished (aside from the camera), and entertaining experience that it managed to win over this jaded gaming cynic, inevitable merchandising tie-ins and all.

    Tremendously realistic graphics and audio bring the world of space travel to brilliant life. While the story serves as a driving force for the single player campaign, it never fully develops into anything worthwhile.

    A title that deserves credit for breaking the cookie-cutter mold that RTS games have fallen into. Even maps with simple goals can turn into endeavors that last for hours, if you take time to smell the roses and just enjoy playing with powerful, fully customizable avatar with the ability to raise a monstrous force.

    The crowning glory of Golden Sun lies in its stunning graphics. Great environments, characters, and especially fight scenes.

    What makes DB a good puzzle game is it’s intelligent design masked by a cute, cartoon façade.

    The graphics are astounding, the levels are very clever.

    Even though it doesn't offer much improvement over the original in terms of gameplay and presentation, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II stands as a solid role-playing game both sides of the gate can appreciate.

    The graphics are superb and the sound is awesome. The game play is very deep and the types of races are an excellent assortment of race types.

    The new story mode is nothing too serious, although I did have some gripes with the new style of level design, but the new multiplayer modes and upgrades will have anyone coming back for more.

    It’s unfortunate that the game is bogged down by a lot of glitches and flaws, but it is still an extremely entertaining title that is deep in every aspect.

    While the game is still a good one, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to someone who was looking for a good RTS.

    The dark and mature theme gave this game a distinctive feel and the graphics take the player in deep within the prison world.

    The music and graphics will blow you away, and the game is pretty fun as well.

    That's one of the beauties of a game like AC: there really isn't an end game, or a finale. The world just keeps going and going, with new adventures and new locations to explore constantly available.

    Great story and intriguing plot twists, complete with graphical and aural pleasures, will keep you coming back for more.

    Generic... enough said.

    The smooth mixture of classic baseball gameplay and new-school baseball violence works well, and had the game’s defensive system been better, MLB Slugfest 20-03 would’ve been the perfect arcade baseball game.

    A BIG game. After several weeks of playing I'm still only in the second chapter of a total of five.

    The levels are great, the tricks are great, but the implementation is just awful.

    It’s not as vast as or as free, but it is a nice fresh coat of graphics and slightly different concept to an otherwise tired genre make it worth a shot. While it doesn’t overcome Grand Theft Auto, it easily makes an appropriate rival.

    Most MMOGs take over a person's life, but with Time of Defiance, you can only play for an hour a day and still have as much fun as someone playing for 8+ hours.

    The whole time I played this game I enjoyed myself thoroughly... The world is gigantic and the people are so friendly that it just begs to be played.

    While not perfect by any means, there's enough fun in Bombing Run and Double Domination alone to make this one worth picking up for some multiplayer fun.

    Roadkill is the s---. Its combination of vehicular-action and mission-based gameplay make it one of the most well designed cross-genre titles of the year.

    Give this improbable but welcome follow-up the benefit of the doubt and chances are you’ll find it offers some of the most action, humor, and--dare I say it--fun you’ve had with a console RPG in a long time.

    The revamped gameplay manages to stay fresh, but is still able to keep that special something that made the original game so engrossing.

    Lovers of Morrowind will love Tribunal, and simply should not go without it. The improved journal alone is worth the price of admission.

    The game executes soundly, and feels more polished than the original Morrowind.

    Xenosaga's biggest strength - an incredibly deep, often thought-provoking storyline - could end up being its commercial downfall. The abstract philosophical references and heavy religious imagery bookending the sheer glut of cinematics may simply prove to be too much for the casual gamer to handle.

    The addition of weapons and dark powers to Jak’s arsenal of attacks make combat more intriguing; however, the grandiose Haven City is quite the opposite, serving only as a presentation piece and an inhibitor to tackling the superb gameplay found in the missions.
