    The game has all the same fun as the PC version, a very nice XBox Live multiplayer support, and all the visuals and sounds that made the PC game such a hit.

    The storyline is very solid and arguably the best in the series so far.

    One fantastic thing about Doom 3 is that the game gets better the more you play it, and the further you get, the better the weapons, the bigger the monsters, the more diverse the environments, and the greater the thrills.

    Considering one NCSoft account lets you play all their titles, this is definitely worth your gaming dollar.

    A great purchase for anyone of practically any age who loves fun video games, no matter the genre. Platform veterans in particular will find tough, addictive challenges that have been missing from jumping games featuring checkpoints and infinite lives!

    The new multiplayer maps and modes give Call of Duty a good lift to add more variety to the game play and add modes that have always been popular in the online community.

    It's a great game to pass around so "everyone can play" and offers a real nice long term gaming experience with all the levels and future downloadable content.

    Here is my big gripe: I don’t play online. I don’t enjoy playing online. I would like to have the chance to accumulate a few achievements and gamer points by playing the game at home, offline. Is that too much to ask for???

    The best feature of the game, by far, is the original script, story line, and depth the game goes into for the London Underworld and how easily it sweeps you into the whole genre.

    A good game with a great longevity factor.

    For what used to be my favorite arcade game of all time, this is a wonderful new edition that stays true to the original. The graphics have been wonderfully redone, and the sounds still sound great.

    A fantastically cool game for the people that love a good mix of FPS action and RPG adventure. The game has a good story-driven flow to it that is fueled by the gothic themes usually associated with the vampire stigma.

    The varied monsters made a nice gamepaly experience, as well as the variety of skills that the various heroes can perform.

    Easily the scariest game I've played since the original Suffering, and it has that beat hands down. The immersion makes you feel like you are so far into the game that you might want a friend nearby to remind you from time to time that you are not in actuality fighting for your life.

    A superb title, a lot of hard work has gone into this one and it shows, cinematic, challenging, absorbing and great fun.

    I thought the graphics and gameplay were the 2 most outstanding features of the game.

    It's totally fun and addicting to play.

    The main plot can be completed in a rental period though, so skilled gamers should rent first to see whether the fun of Spidey's web slinging offsets the repetition of the game's missions.

    Kids and the parents who shop for them or nostalgic Atari 2600 gamers will find it a decent purchase, but it’s recommended they rent it first as well to see if the unique control schemes aren’t too frustrating.

    An immersive and cinematic game featuring a storyline plenty of action enough to spare.
    • 61 Metascore

    Easily the most impressive feature of the graphics is the level of detail with the fluid motion with all the characters in the game. It's almost a combination of 2D characters running around in a 3D world, but there's no denying that the graphics are amongst the best on hand-held devices at this time.

    The perfect game of the sexually repressed immature male in your life ... and in other words, I thought it was pretty darn funny.

    A fun adventure title that gamers will enjoy. It's a nice, straight forward game that has some good graphics and cut scenes from the movie.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The game's original atmosphere and crazy events are a lot of fun to play, and you'll find yourself itching to play it some more as soon as your buddies come back.

    The design team did a good job in offering multiple campaigns, scenarios, skirmishes, and the board-game option.

    Even with its new dynamic industries, it lacks the depth to its game play to keep the attention of players expecting a challenging economic or building simulation.
