    A deep and ultimately rewarding game that apes soccer completely. From the pace to the strategy to the subtle nuances, it's all there. [Apr 2003, p.62]

    It's also an enjoyable game with a huge collection element (there are hundreds of different clothes, shoes, and other accessories that will actually have an effect on your stats), unconventional game modes, and fantasy courses and golfers.

    With great dialogue, beautiful art direction, and generally high-quality puzzles, it's worthwhile to indulge the designers' crate fetish just to see what comes next.

    It's an all-engrossing interactive soap-opera that grabs hold of you and never lets go. Consider yourself warned. [Feb 2003, p.64]

    Every stage looks utterly fantastic, with detailed architecture filling every corner of the screen... [and] the controls are simple enough to keep the action intense. [Feb 2003, p.62]

    Does away [with] the traditional overworld, but introduces full voice acting. Artistically beautiful, as always. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    This Greek mythology-based action game is an update of the arcade and NES classic in name only. Fun combat and great music. [Feb 2003, p.93]

    Intensely beautiful, highly playable, and downright inspired, R-Type Final is a somber but fitting end to a legendary series. A stellar combination of style, substance, and class.

    NCAA stands as (at least) "Madden's" equal and easily justifies a $50 expenditure... Improvements galore and online play (with chat) make NCAA second to none. [Sept 2003, p.72]

    As complete and comprehensive an epic as we have ever seen, and it succeeds on all levels, both plot-wise and game-wise. [Mar 2003, p.55]

    There's so much new content, it's more like an excellent sequel to the original. [Sept 2003, p.70]

    If you're a D&D nerd then you already know, but buy this one for the multiplayer and user-made mods. [Feb 2003, p.94]

    To get the most out of this game, start the expansion pack with a brand-new character. We imported a high-level cleric - Beaverskull Bablicious - from NWN and found Undrentide to be too easy. [Sept 2003, p.76]

    Extremely realistic attack chopper sim that's not for the weak of hear or impatient of trigger finger. [Feb 2003, p.94]

    Still the best baseball sim there is. [Apr 2003, p.65]

    Takes everything The Two Towers did well and improves upon it in every way.

    Possibly the best reason to own a PS2 network adapter. The team-based miliary tactics work better online than off. [Feb 2003, p.93]

    After numerous shoddy attempts to bring classic Contra gameplay to a next-gen system, Konami finally gets it right. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    The invention-building feature, which lets you create new weapons by combining photos of different found objects is nothing short of genius. [Mar 2003, p.68]

    This highly anticipated sequel throws a real curveball early on in the game. It was probably the least confusing part of the story. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    An underappreciated work of art with challenging puzzles, fantastic lighting, and engrossing character relationships. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    Did you know DMC was going to be "Resident Evil 4," before it was spun off into its own series? Oh, you did? Nevermind, then. [Feb 2003, p.92]

    With the underlying mechanics perfected, Commando gets down to the business at hand and provides a Godzilla-sized block of fun. [Dec 2003, p.72]

    Combining the reckless, breakneck speed and high-impact collisions of "Burnout" with the neon-tipped street culture of Fast and the Furious (and, more specifically, "Midnight Club II"), Underground is the new definition of white-knuckle.

    It's somehow mind-numbingly mundane and brilliantly addictive at the same time. [Jan 2004, p.92]

    All the hardware that makes modern warfare hell is here, and from the moment you see the enemy hightail it at th efirst sound of your F-4 Phantom's engines, you'll know why every FPS - be it set in the future or that fabled galaxy far, far away - is out to imitate the Battlefield formula.

    On the downside, you're going to have to bite your lip and accept the fact that the Xbox version does look a bit better. [Sept 2004, p.84]

    If you've ever played "Jagged Alliance 2" and thought "Hot diggity, if this took place in World War II and was in 3D, it would rock," here is your dream game.
