    I was truly amazed by how much fun this game actually is. The planes all look amazing, the action is exciting, and it is an admirable attempt to bring high-flying antics to the Playstation... That said, it's the very simplicity of the gameplay that scuppers the game, as it is at times far too easy.

    It took a while, but the N64 finally has a Ridge Racer title to call its own, and a very good one at that. RR64 is packing great sound, graphics, and just about everything else for the first one of the series on a Nintendo console.

    There are only three words to describe most of the game’s controls, which are simple, precise and responsive. The games controls are just perfect and are some of the best I have played with in any racing title out on any console.

    Its gameplay has evolved to a funfactor of hell yes!

    Its lastability is the only drawback of the title.

    Definitely good in the sound department as long as you don't mind that there is no music.

    Visually, be prepared to be stunned.

    The graphics were great, the sound was good, and the gameplay was just addictive beyond belief.

    The daunting task may seem like an obstacle in the way of enjoying the game, but a unique adventure like this doesn't come along very often. So, a definite buy for any N64 owner looking for action that can't be found anywhere else.

    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.

    The only thing about these simple controls is that the game’s response seems too sensitive to each use of the d-pad. Simple, and yet, they still have some gripes.

    All in all, this is easily the best fighting game on the market along side "Vampire Chronicles."

    With the PS2 RPG release list suffering, Dark Cloud could easily be named the best offering in this genre to date.

    Given the free-flowing, non-linear nature of the game, gamers will either love the freedom to cruise around, or hate the lack of a real objective.

    I highly recommend this game to anyone who has any interest in fighting games, especially those who were disappointed with "Tekken 4" or people who have a craving for the Mortal Kombat series.

    Very fun, though still plays a lot like the first Spiderman game I played on PlayStation (which isn't a bad thing, but hoped for a somewhat different experience).

    The game sucks you in to it, and wont let go.

    A fantastic multiplayer.

    Even with an online mode for competitions by rules set on the game's site, it just isn't enough that to keep you coming back to fish some more.

    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.

    The best multi-playerS game for parties, sleep over or a past of time for kiddies & young adults alike. Hudson Soft has taken the game boards of the family room table and crush it all into a game cartridge that is well worth the purchase.

    I enjoy every moment of this game, the deathmatch mode is intense, I find the campaign mode to be a challenge, and the online multiplayer mode will definitely appeal to most people. This is a great game.

    There is no shame in being inferior to a groundbreaking title like SSX. And while CB2001 has its share of flaws, you'll still get a thrill seeking challenge.

    There's one disappointment - the lack of animation. You may see two or three birds way out flying, but closer surrounding area are completely static; trees leaves do not move, glowing electronic billboards don't animate, ocean water is stiff as stone, and there is no detectable change in weather condition....Still the overall package is very sweet.

    The game offers a great ride while also telling us a little more about the inner stories of Episode II that were not mentioned in the movie.

    And finally, the main item which has caused the most commotion over is the cloth world map. Die hard Lunar fans have purchased the game solely for this. Again, Working Designs has out done them selves with another first in the Video Game industry.

    Finally a game that boasts graphics that we have been promised would come out of our PS2s.

    Game mechanics may be tedious, but they are also very enjoyable nonetheless.

    A just as addicting game as last years game, and improves pretty well upon it too.

    Very decent. Old fans of the 2D installment and first time players should look into this title.
