    Born on the Playstation 2, and it looks it. Muddy Textures, low detail. The large gameworld is technically impressive though.

    While there are some great games on this disc, total duds like Kozmik Krooz'r, Arch Rivals, and Pit Fighter, make MAT2 an uneven compilation in the end. For a better group of games, check out the first "MAT."

    It gets the series back on track, but its lousy on-foot controls and AI restrictions really kill a lot of the major fun factor.

    This is a classic example of graphics look better but the gameplay isn't as compelling as the competition.

    Graphics are not top notch, not even close to it. Make no mistake, this game is a port of a PS2 game brought to Xbox 360 and it looks even less impressive than the Xbox version.

    If they were allowed to finish this game before it was released, it would be a classic.

    The minor quibbles on control and visuals keep this game from becoming the defining golf game on the system. With that being said, the potential is still enormous.

    It's a fun beat-em up and a heck of a game. It has more hits than misses and is a definite rental for anyone looking to kill a weekend.

    It is inexcusable that the multiplayer mode is so underdeveloped. It is as if Rockstar came up with a nice innovation for a multiplayer mode and forgot (or simply didn’t care) to complete the programming of it.

    The game has a great tuning set up for your car, and the sound effects aren't bad, but the core of the game lies in the gameplay which is repetitive, and too slow.

    Only negative I have with this is the fact that most of the game can be beaten by repeatedly tapping the "X" button; varying control scheme would have been nice.

    Sure, the AI’s nowhere near present standards. Granted, its graphics engine is severely outdated. And, yeah, it’s not breaking any records in the sound department either. But therein lies its charm. If you’re like me and have been a longtime fan of the series, you’ll find this one as comfortable to slip into as a well-worn, unwashed pair of jeans.

    Turok manages to revive the ailing franchise. The dinosaurs look awesome and fighting them is just as cool.

    While the gameplay and controls could have used a little more work, Fantastic Four is a comic book brawler that may just beat out the summer blockbuster competition.

    It is not the best brawler on the market, but Shrek SuperSlam is a good one that gets held back from greatness due to some weak parts.

    Detailed and fluidly animated characters duke it out in impressively destructible environments. Framerate and texture issues hold the game back from graphical greatness.

    BlackSite has its ups and downs from the start. The story is interesting and the graphics are very nicely detailed. The technical hitches of the slowdown were rather sad.

    Any FPS player itching for something new and fresh should definitely check out Shadowrun, anyone else will probably want to save their money for something a little more substantial.

    The Godfather: The Don's Edition doesn't feel next-gen. Even with the new additions, it plays like a PS2 game.

    The game is decent for an on-rails shooter.

    If you have never played Battlefield 2 before, give it a rental. If you have... Avoid this and get the PC version

    If you need one game to get for the launch, NBA 2K6 is the way to go, simply because "NBA Live" is more of a visual presentation with very little substance.

    Metal Slug 3, at four years old, still remains one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences on the Xbox for those who are up to the challenge it presents.

    In terms of casual friendly training games, Mega Brain Boost is a good game. The problem is that it lacks the subtle refinements that would have improved the game considerably.

    I whole-heartedly endorse the rental of the title, as it's multiplayer will be fun for a week or so before it starts to grow old.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex Edition is what you'd expect to find out of it. It doesn't live up to the HD versions because the severe graphical hit the game takes, but the multiplayer is still a lot of fun to experience and that alone may make the game worth it for you.

    RIDE is a blend of two worlds: one that tests your patience versus one that feels surprisingly interactive. With some bugs and controller issues RIDE does come across as a bit unfinished, but Robomodo has fearlessly taken on the role of changing the genre and with that comes a learning curve.

    On a console over populated with first person shooters, there's nothing exceptionally special or unique about Pariah. If you really want to play it, give the game a rental.

    I'd call Mutant Storm Reloaded a poor man's Geometry Wars Retro Evolved, but the fact that it costs twice as many Marketplace points kinda makes that insult moot.
