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

    Diddy Kong may be a prize to little kids this Xmas of 97, but if you in the teenage or adult years.... This game replay value is slim to none. So rent if you're not buying this for your kids.

    For those who are amateurs and have not played much of the Tiger Woods series you may find yourself frustrated at crucial times.

    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.

    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.

    And your cars? Well, eventually you'll get some nice ones. Just set aside a month.

    Fast paced, 3D fighting at its finest level as of yet.

    Another thing that kinda irks me is the fact that the game pretty much flaunts a late 60's model Mustang muscle car as your main ride, but yet there is only like 1 mission that lets you drive it... its never the default car in any level.

    Most importantly, it is fun. Something that most games do not have going for them now a days.

    Overall, I was very happy with Sonic and kept me playing longer than Sonic on NeoGeo Pocket Color did.

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

    A much-improved version over its predecessor.

    This one is packed full of race courses, new and old, classic and new cars, network action, and a heck of a lot of options.

    One of the best racing games on a portable ever.

    Perhaps the most impressive mode of the game is the multi-players, in which Acclaim put more thought into. With special design deathmatch stages, Turok 2 has the same if not, better multi player funfactor of "Goldeneye 007."

    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.

    The moment I picked it up, it was hard to separate me from it. And as I've told many already, any game that can make me smile as much as this game does is definitely a gem of its own.

    Rogue Squadron doesn’t quite work as well as it should. Frustrating, repetitive gameplay and eye-straining graphics hurt this title quite badly. In fact, I doubt that it would score so highly if it weren’t for the Star Wars license.

    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.

    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.

    Controlling Max is a cinch, with responsive movement and a well thought out button configuration.

    "Timesplitters 2" will appeal more to those who were into "Perfect Dark" or 007 types of games. Red Faction II will appeal more to those who like games such as "Halo."

    The added features, and classic gameplay makes for one great game.

    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.

    Not a traditional type of game we expect to see on a home console. This quality PC conversion only begs the question, "why haven't we?" May the seaweed be with you!

    Hardcore gamers should absolutely love this game because of the challenge it presents, but regular gamers like myself might have a bit of trouble swallowing the frustrating gameplay.

    Casual sports gamers will often find frustration due to the computer AI.

    Once you get used to the unique style of play, it becomes second nature as any game does.

    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?!

    Truly a game of patience.
