    The game’s mechanics are a breeze to master, but still offer up enough intricacies to make playing the game more about skill than random button mashing and luck.

    Sonic may never topple Mario from the throne of excellent adventure games, but this latest attempt goes a long way to prove that there’s plenty of room for two fantastic gaming franchises at the top.

    There's nothing new here, just more of the same Viewtiful Joe goodness.

    The gameplay is a dream. It's logical, well thought out, rarely requires any button mashing, and has a great tutorial that for the most part, walks you through the entire thing.

    Let me tell ya something -- XGIII is a flat-out, go-for-gonzo experience, the coolest racing game I've played in years.

    No matter which mode you choose, hours of adrenaline-pumping, white-knuckle racing will be at your fingertips. The developers did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of NASCAR racing.

    There is, however, a very high learning curve to the game, which I guess isn’t surprising considering how complex it is. The tutorial gives you only the minimum of basics and there are very few in-the-game resources for learning.

    I can’t remember the last time I spent so much time playing just a single game... Just ask my wife. We would be sitting at the dinner table and she would look over at me with that evil eye and say “You’re thinking of that @#!$% game again aren’t you?”

    Call me a glutton for punishment, but I've never been so addicted to a shooter. Maybe it's the fact the game keeps hammering me, but I can't get enough. I can't tell you how many times I muttered "this is ridiculous" or "you've got to be kidding" while playing the game, but I still love it.

    While it is a great game, it doesn't rate top honors due to the many issues with Battle.net and flaky support for Windows 2000.

    Feed the dog, kiss the wife goodbye, and tell work that you’re very ,very sick then start playing Commandos 2, and don’t blame me when you’re staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night thinking about how you could have completed the mission a better way.

    Much broader in scope and storyline than was its predecessor. There is much more to see and do in this game. Best of all, the much-maligned time limit from Fallout is absent.

    With a storyline that drew me in more than most games I’ve played recently, graphics quality that I thought was impossible on my TV, and a cast of characters that amused and delighted, I’ve found a game that I love.

    The number of tracks mixed in with the brilliance in design should keep you playing for quite awhile. You may not have the patience to try and unlock all 300 cars, you should find more than enough replay value just trying to learn the different driving techniques for the different cars.

    If you’re looking for a damn good skateboarding game, on any platform, start here.

    One of those exceptional games where the great gameplay makes up for mediocre graphics and sound.

    The best game I've played in a long, long time and I found myself totally addicted to it.

    This game takes the purity and excitement of America's favorite pastime and brings it to the Xbox flawlessly.

    Arcade mavens, it’s a no-brainer, buy it now. However, I can’t help but think that for hardcore sim fans the over-the-top antics may be just a bit too much.

    I literally got the bejeebers scared out of me when I played it during the midnight hour. Any game that gets under my skin like this one gets my seal of approval.

    Whether you are looking at it for the challenging single-player mode, the innovative cooperative two-player mode, or the "get to know your guests" party game mode, C&C succeeds.

    A patch away from gaming excellence. Recommended for "Baldur’s Gate" and "Neverwinter Nights" fans, after a good patch, this title will have all the goods.

    They did a great job of setting the timer on some missions to the point where you will either succeed by a few seconds or lose by a few seconds.

    An excellent game with plenty of character and story development, engaging plot and rich graphics. This game will undoubtedly appeal to the gamer of a more disturbed taste. I liked it.

    Although the controls can still be difficult to manage at first, Starfleet Command III is worth the effort.

    Make no mistake about it, this is the game most Civilization lovers have been longing for.

    While I wouldn’t call this title really high quality, it rests on the strength of good gameplay and a proven console game style.

    Boy, did System Shock 2 suck me in and not let me go. It’s been two weeks since I got this game and I look forward to playing it every day.

    As a MMORPG, Final Fantasy XI is definitely one of the best around and for those who enjoy them prepare for hours upon hours of fun.
