    While on the highest difficulty the realism is still a little overwhelming, there are many driving aids to keep you on the track and keep the game fun.

    It soon becomes a tedious exercise in reversals and grappling, but until you master your technique to that point, it's a great game.

    "Mario Kart's" (at least the original one, anyway) biggest strength was its multiplayer mode and of course DKR does what Nintendo did but better.

    Every target is superbly animated and detailed - walker droids walk with consummate ease, meteors float around ominously, end of level bosses look as imposing as they're supposed to...it's all great.

    It’s a slick, smart, very Golden-Eye-ish game and will certainly appeal to a mixed crossover audience that wants action, espionage, and a movie-feel to their game.

    From the clean lines of the characters to the neo-corporation look of the cities to the lightning-fast action and rail, wall, and banister grinding, Jet Set Radio is something you'll want in your future.

    An instant classic.

    Where the game takes a steep drop from the PS2 version is in the controls - and this is totally because of the cumbersome design of the GameCube controller...[But it's] still a giant orange ball of fun.

    The best Advance multiplayer game to date (and you only need one cartridge), Bomberman blows up the competition when it comes to fun.

    Another addictive dungeon romp. Kiss your free time and hordes of demon butt goodbye.

    Of the three, this version of Tricky has the best controls and graphics. That makes this the best version available.

    It's refreshing to see a quasi-RPG game that doesn't go for the high-brow, rules-specific combat of RPG's - but if you're looking for an RPG with more clout, stick to "Final Fantasy X."

    There’s so much to do, so many secrets to find, and so many objectives to complete that this game will not be finished in a weekend – this is one of those rare games that will take a lifetime to play.

    The kudos system, overall structure, and addictive qualities of this game easily transcend any minor flaws.

    You either love it because you loved the first one, or would rather play something more traditional in the fighting genre.

    There's not a lot holding DOA3 back from becoming X-Box Game of the Year: it's that good. Every time you pop this disc in you're instantly amazed by the leaps and bounds that the X-Box engine has achieved.

    Rallisport does more than just win over casual racing fans - it make an otherwise niche genre something fun and exciting - hey, Sony did it with golf and Hot Shots - Microsoft is just using a different set of drivers.

    Not a game for everyone, but fans of 2D shooters and developer Treasure will definitely want to pick up a copy of Bangai-O.

    NFL2K2 is the easiest to play right out of the box, with appeal to newbies and players who don't have a ton of football experience. Madden is still the sim gamer's favorite, while NFL Fever is the flashy go-between that links all three games together.

    Sam (sets itself apart) by it’s sense of humor and easy to learn controls. It’s also one of the brighter shooters, with lots of outside and aboveground levels mixed in with all of the dungeon crawling.

    With the exception of the very tight turns in the game, it's as easy as shelling peanuts once you get a few practice rounds in.

    The only problem Driver has is that the whole thing gets old pretty quickly.

    It has great competitive factions, a large line-up of diverse skaters, and some of the most mind-blowing, thumb-numbing, breathtaking tricks yet seen on a console snowboarding game.

    It's a great representation of how to handle a superhero in video game form, and surpasses other lame efforts like "Superman N64" and "Batman Forever" (remember that crap?).

    The things that made Sonic a hit back in the old days make it a classic now - fast game play, interesting intricate levels, and detailed and colorful graphics.

    If you thought that "Resident Evil" was scary, well let me just tell you Resident Evil is akin to Disney's Bambi compared to this... If you want a game that will surely help you soil your undies kids, than Silent Hill is what you want!

    Despite its graphical limitations, statistical miscues and outdated rosters, this is still one of the best basketball games for the Playstation.

    Most importantly, "Ground Control" doesn't let itself get weighed down with useless options and nerd-pleasing, making this a RTS almost anyone can enjoy.

    Steeped in style, sleight in substance, and superior in overall satisfaction.
