    With the current-gen, you get more bang for your buck.

    The GameCube finally has a kick-ass RPG that they can call their own. I am simply blown away by Tales of Symphonia. The graphics are beautiful, the music is awesome, the voices are top-notch and the game play is to die for.

    A test of your strategic skills. From the tactics-based fighting, to the persuasion of the Dark Assembly, to the creation of characters, every aspect requires you to consider how your decision will affect you down the road.

    I love it. I became addicted to this game very quickly. My wife is starting to get jealous now.

    A beautiful compliment to the AOM saga, and this is a title that I will definitely slow down to play.

    I’m of the belief that you should always leave your audiences wanting more instead of wishing for the experience to end. While some might consider that a sign that a game is too short, I was satisfied and indeed wanted more.

    The graphics in NFL Street look good with a slight edge going to the Xbox version of the game. The Xbox version looks smoother and cleaner while the PS2 version looks a little rough around the edges.

    In my honest humble opinion Silent Hill 4: The Room is by far the best of the Silent Hill series.

    This game does for the arcade racing genre what "Rallisport Challenge 2" does for the rally section. It's just that good.

    All I can say is WOW! This game is amazing! Shadow Hearts: Covenant is in my opinion one of the best RPG to hit the scene this year.

    The game has something that many games are missing these days, and that is emotion.

    I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Future Perfect is the best FPS ever. But I will tell you that if you give me a choice between this game and any other FPS (including either "Halo" game), I’ll choose to play Time Splitters.

    I sat in awe every time I went into battle because the colossi were so cool.

    What can I say, this game is massive, and the expansion adds on even more to the title.

    Sit down with fable, take it slow, and really enjoy all that there is to be seen here. I think fable isn't about genre defining gameplay, it's about creative invention. It pulls players in and makes you actually feel like you are a hero and not just controlling one arbitrarily.

    I have found almost NOTHING wrong or flawed in NFL 2K5. It is what I would consider right now the perfect Football game. It is a must have game.

    The AI in the game has been greatly improved over last year. People who like to run the same few plays over and over will need to learn to change their game, or they will get left behind.

    The king of platform games has made a triumphant return, and he has shown that he has not lost a step.

    The gameplay is fun and innovative, the graphics are simply breathtaking, the cut scenes look simply amazing. Textures are done with detail and look sweet.

    This game is almost perfect. There’s a large chunk of video game history packaged together in one disc. If you’re a Mega Man fan at all, you owe it to yourself to run out and buy this collection.

    The most impressive feature of Everything or Nothing has to be the visuals. The game makes gamers feel like they are in the middle of James Bond movie while providing top notch graphics.

    The tilesets offer a little more variety than modifying lighting on older tilesets to accomplish the same visual effects and thank Mordenkainen they improved the system for setting creature waypoints.

    And when I finally got a hand of the great online play for the Playstation 2 I was just blown away. It is fast and silky smooth. And the botom line is that the game is just fun and exciting to play. Your heart will race while you try and duck gunfire from the Nazis.
