    There's so much to see and experience beyond the main quests, and being able to play through as the various character type as well as play the game on-line gives the title an exceptional longevity score.

    A pretty decent game that isn't anything spectacular, but for fans of the movie and people that enjoy bash-em shoot-em type of games involving multiple players will definitely enjoy the game.

    This was a great concept on paper but somehow they managed to take what was a original game with great characters and a interesting story and turn it in to a lifeless soulless game.

    An in your face, kick butt, super game that offers some of the best graphics, sound effects, and action ever made in a game to date. The art direction is amazing, and the game is facilitated by a story that will recapture audiences.

    An addicting, impressive, and most importantly fun game. The graphics are very nice, the sounds are equally impressive, and the gameplay of the soccer and the amount of modes available make for a tremendous gaming experience.

    The neatest thing about FFVTTR is that you truly interact with the environment – you can destroy buildings, and even pick up lampposts to swat opponents. This is a serious innovation and really makes the game stand out.

    The best racing simulator ever made. That goes for all platforms and systems back to the beginning of time - GT4 is simply the best ever. The cars are amazingly detailed, the courses rich and diverse, and the amount of things to do in the game is impressively overwhelming.

    It's totally fun and addicting to play.

    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.

    With a tremendous amount of on-line support and features, its a great game to play with your friends in cyberspace.

    The choice of following General George S. Patton’s campaigns was both logical (as the best US Tank General ever) and engaging. The Blitzkrieg system works well with no flaws experienced, in a graphics rich environment.

    It's funny, there really isn't anything absolutely revolutionary or remarkable about the game, but you'll find yourself playing it for hours on end.
