    The game is geared for realism and suspense - so ADD kids won't enjoy it while intelligent gamers looking for a level of realism will be heartedly entertained.

    Not what I would expect for the 360, but a good game nonetheless.

    The missions are fun, the environment rich, and the ability to really customize your character is very impressive.

    I haven’t had a gaming session like this in a long time. It’s one you kick the roommates off of the TV for or call in sick to work for.

    Its tight game design, multiple chat tools, and nods to story and questing amid the combat-heavy game play make it a worthy choice for those new to or familiar with the MMORPG genre.

    Casual gamers may not be bothered by the difficulty bug or AI glitches, but diehard Thief fans would be better off with the PC version, both for definitely available patches and the offhand possibility of future mod missions.

    The game comes highly recommended to those of you that have gone through the Tony Hawk franchise as it is, and should entertain you for months on end.

    Tremendously fun title to say the least.

    An absolute thrill to play with all the elements of both a top notch action and RPG title.

    The attention-grabbing graphic effects and tight control scheme that allows Psi-Ops players to wreck super-powered havoc on the enemy tips the balance in making it a good purchase for action game fans, despite its lone boss battle bug and minor design problems.

    It's arguably the best fighter/wrestling title out for any portable console, is the best ever in the long history of the title for PS2, and has a great gameplay experience that it's hard to imagine any wrestling fan not immediately falling in love with this game.

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

    My favorite PSP game. It has beautiful visuals, wonderful songs, cute characters, simple gameplay that’s easy on the go, and a lot of replay value.

    The over-the-top style and theme of the game along with some of the ridiculous moves you can pull on an opponent give the game a tremendous amount of appeal to the gamers tired of the "ultra simulators" that we've seen for years on end.

    But if you don't see the awesome graphics and sound, you will definitely be a sorrier person for it whether you know it or not.

    It is ALL about multiplayer gaming - which is a fantastically supported feature.

    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.

    It's a lot of fun to play, is fairly inexpensive, and you'll get a ton of hours of great gameplay out of it, not just for you but for the entire family.

    As a standalone game, it has enough features to reward serious players, but with several features that make it the ideal MMO for the player who only has a couple of hours a week to devote to it.

    If you can get over the uninspiring graphics, you can definitely enjoy some really fun gameplay and a nice new type of game for the Marvel comic universe.

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

    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.
