    Parasite Eve has been one of the only RPGs since Final Fantasy 7 to genuinely deserve any kind of hype, or at least anticipation.

    Barking Dog's attention to detail and their sincere desire to improve almost every aspect of the original has resulted in an extremely solid title that easily stands up to any real-time strategy game released this year. I am impressed.

    I have been playing MW4 ever since the beta came out around a month ago, and I still don't think I will be putting it down for a while. MW 4 has everything that MW 3 failed to offer.

    It looks great, and more importantly, it plays great.

    A surreal Viking-inspired experience that turns itself into is a somewhat simple hack 'n slash action game, but a very, very fun one, at that.

    The opportunity to fight using Star Trek ships is something that all Trekkies should salivate over.

    The commraderie, exciting combat, and RPG elements make Shattered Galaxy an incredibly unique and addictive game, able to take parts from other strategy titles and turn them into something that feels completely fresh.

    To be blunt, I haven't been this addicted to one single game in a long time.

    FIFA not only sports fantastic controls, but beauty to go along with it's other two outings ("Madden" and "NHL"). Is it just as good as the other two? You betcha!

    Tecmo has gone the extra mile by including tons of extras in addition to the already spectacular gameplay and graphics that was already there.

    The game also has replay value up the wazoo. Not only do you get to storm through 25 levels of insanity, but you have many extras to unlock as well.

    This game is all around faster (than "Madden 2001") which makes the controls feel even tighter.

    NBA 2K2 has set the bar for the rest of those basketball titles. No one has even come close to capturing the fundamentals of the game like this series does.

    One of the best NASCAR games I've ever played. With a full 43-car field displayed, the atmosphere of NASCAR racing is front and centre, drawing you in from the get go.

    A shining example of bringing together a wide variety of different ideas, executing them with a ever-engaging style, and delivering a polished product that is a thrilling experience from beginning to end.

    The control is spot-on, player ratings make a huge difference in checking, skating and passing, and it just feels like real on-ice action. ESPN NHL 2K4 has ironed out most of the wrinkles from last year, and turned the presentation up to 11 - you won't find a better playing, better looking, or better sounding hockey game available.

    This game is “near” flawless.

    Graphically the game is astounding! This is easily the best-looking racing title on the PC this year.

    Every course and environment in SSX is stunning.

    This might not be the year that Sega's series tops Madden in the sales charts, but we might look back at 2003 as the year Sega's NFL 2k3 became the better game.

    The amount of control you have over your character in Jedi Academy is one of those things we all asked for while we were playing "Jedi Outcast."

    GT3 doesn't disappoint. The AI could be better, but everything else kicks too much ass to worry about it.

    It combines an atmosphere that will have you changing your shorts at least twice per playing session with beautiful visuals and balanced gameplay that requires some actual thinking to make it through successfully.

    A strategically intelligent game with a polished edge keen enough to slice through many jaded preconceptions about the future of RTS titles.

    A nearly perfect conclusion to the Child of Bhaal saga, combining deft storytelling , an intelligent abilities system, and the trademark high quality fans of the series have come to expect into one superlative package.

    With airtight controls, improved defensive and offensive AI, more animations, a deep and rewarding franchise that allows you to actually own a team this season, John Madden football looks to big in a great position to continue their reign as the undisputed champs of video football.

    I found myself hopelessly addicted to this pseudo-dungeon crawl, and I have a feeling it isn't just me.

    A no-brainer recommendation. The story moves along nicely, and the battles load quickly and provide you with enough strategy to stay reasonably interesting.

    Despite my inability to pin down what really makes this title so special, it is easy to say that it is exactly this reason that I feel that it has actually one-upped the respected Pharaoh.

    It's the best thing since Sliced Bread, other than its sequel, Sliced Bread II: Electric Boogaloo.
