    This game is a must have for any skateboarder or skateboard fan, and if you are a person looking for a game that will hold your attention span longer than an infomercial about George Foreman's lean mean cooking machine, by all means head to your local game retailer and purchase a copy of this game.

    Control wise, this setup is a major improvement over the stiff and cumbersome control scheme of RE series. Everything moves swiftly, smoothly, with dead on response to your button action.

    Move over "Final Fantasy IX," I think we have new #1 contender for RPG of the year, and it is "Chrono Cross."

    Great. It's just too short. It's original, stylish, cool, enjoyable, and is definitely meant to be played LOUD. I just couldn't believe it when after a few day's sporadic play I'd defeated all three gangs.

    NFL 2k3 seems to be aimed at more for those who have a touch of arcade football within them while "Madden 2003" is for the hardcore simulation gamer. Overall I would choose Madden 2003 as the winner of the football crown for this season by just a hair.

    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.
