    With plenty of extra modes, flashy graphics, and excellent voiceovers, this could be the next step towards perfecting the 2D side of the Playstation fighters.

    Overall, this has made an old ToeJam and Earl fan very happy. I still would rather it be even more like the original title, but the final product is definitely great.

    Camera angles at its best. There is no need to control the camera angle if it's already position in the best possible matter – which seems to be how the camera works all the time. This is perfection at work.

    With awesome graphics, dead-on voice acting, an ingenious battle system, and a strong story plot, you would be crazy to pass this game up.

    After last years disappointment, Visual Concepts has brought WSB2K2 back to being a excellent baseball series again.

    Although it doesn't have the insane special moves or high character count of "Marvel vs Capcom 2," it does offer a tight gameplay engine for skilled fighters, and wonderfully smooth graphics to complete the package.

    If you like soccer games, and are fortunate enough to have a PS2, you NEED this game. As far as the imperfections of the game, let's face it - EA needs to give you a reason to buy Fifa 2002, right?!

    Visually, be prepared to be stunned.

    While it is not long, it just is too much damn fun to put down or not play again.

    The music is outstanding. It sets the mood perfectly for each scene and makes you feel like you are really in the game.

    JSRF isn't going to wow you with its realistic factor, but it will blow you away by showing off a colorful and very beautiful cell shaded world.

    Since this is one of the best fighting games to date, you don't even have to be a die-hard fan to enjoy this.

    The music soundtrack is dead on, with fast and funky tunes delivering the adrenaline rush you so badly need to make you feel like a badass.

    Don't get me wrong, Ratchet and Clank is an awesome platformer in length and gameplay and just about everything, just I preferred "Sly Cooper’s" gameplay more.

    Great RPG and certainly the best one on the PS2 currently, however, I feel it isn't as great as past FF's have been due to its lack of freedom.

    The game also includes a cool behind the scenes footage of the game and interviews with coverboy Marshall Faulk, John Madden, Al Michaels and Melissa Stark.

    A sleeper hit that is not only enjoyable on the eyes, but the action, the story, and the maturity of the game really spice up the title. While the game is short, a game that leaves you yearning for more has to be good.

    Graphically, R4 outshines almost all the other racing games, with impressive lighting effects, a very high frame rate, and no visible slowdown at all.

    A multi-player hit. Believe me people, you and your friends will spend hours on end battling it out to the very end. Whether it's 2 on 2 or if you think you're a badass 3 on 1.

    With all the knowledge they acquired from previous Star Wars flight combat games, the latest graphics engine on the world's most powerful console, an exceptional story with a cast of three, and a reworked control setup, Star Wars: Starfighter offers one helluva ride.

    With a standout graphical look to it, and the great traditional RPG style, Paper Mario is certainly one of the best RPG games out there.

    The backgrounds are some of the best public arenas presented so far in a game.

    While this game is Tekken three with tag team and better graphics, it really is a fun game to play. This is probably what Soul Calibur was to Dreamcast, although not as great.
