    I know...that is as near perfect as you can get but that is the way I see The Sims and the new expansion, The Sims: Vacation! I have all the expansions. I play the game several times a week for an hour or two...or three! As a consenting adult well above the age level determined proper for this game, I enjoy every aspect of the game.

    Rise of Nations revitalizes this genre because it blends the mechanics of real time and turn based strategy games into one. As weird as this may sound, the game does this flawlessly and expounds the gameplay a hundred fold.

    Nothing you see and nothing you read can prepare you for this game. Beyond Good & Evil is a masterpiece through and through.

    On a slower machine, frustration sets in. But when played on a machine that allows the total scope of this game to shine through, it is a fantastic journey. Tough, you bet – but a lot of fun.

    At this point, NBA Live 2001 should be the only basketball game you need for some time to come. It offers a little of everything, and although it's certainly not perfect, you have to appreciate that EA didn't skimp on the details or merely repackage last year's edition.

    Nice to see a game that gets back to the basics of FPS genre with puzzles, storyline, TONS of killing bad guys, and end-of-level bosses.

    When you finish it's time for a ride and what a ride it is! Playstation makes you feel as if you are there taking each twist and turn with the console. This has to be almost as good as IMAX, without leaving your living room!

    It offers some pretty fundamental improvements over the Xbox version and stands as one of the best PC RPGs out there.

    I admire Final Fantasy X's emotional and spiritual depth. There is never a time that we can't feel the pain and the struggles of our heroes.

    Overall this is the best F1 racing game to date, every detail, has been covered. The game plays great, the graphics are top notch, the sounds are realistic, and the ability to tweak and adjust everything in the game is fantastic!

    This program intrigues, and delights. The characters have personalities, the game board is huge and the storyline is liable to go in almost any direction – or so it seems.

    The best racing game of the year..."Gran Turismo 2" and "3" are just as good, but they are definitely not better than Splashdown.

    Every single aspect -- the controls, the gameplay, the graphics, etc. -- has been improved 110%. You may not notice all of the improvements at first, but the game will suck you in immediately.

    I was extremely surprised when I found out that there are over 70 songs in this game. Each year Neversoft crams more and more songs in their games, and it is amazing! The sound effects are also top notch.

    The game is a whole lot faster than the previous game. There is so much going on at the screen at once, it might be hard for players to keep up, but that will never be the case.
