    But the real star of this 2 disc set is DOA 2 Ultimate, which takes a game that I thought blew away the competition back then, and gives it a hypershot in the arm. It has become by far the best in the DOA series.

    Without a doubt the best in the series to date. If you love the franchise this game buy is a no-brainer.

    You are going to be blown away when you see how much of the console version of the series they were able to stuff into this little 1.8 gig UMD disc.

    Has everything that an import tuner nut could ever want. Heck, this game has everything a racing fan could ever want.

    What I think is the most significant about the game is that it takes the movie's story, but it doesn't deviate from the gameplay that makes Spider-Man so fun. And this time it's very open ended.

    It's got more Marvel Superheroes and Villans than I knew even existed. It's got the same rock-solid gameplay I've come to expect. And it's got some nice new team focus additions that make the game even better.

    Excellent, A+, great, great game. I can only think of one thing this game is missing; online gameplay.

    The thing that makes Sid Meyer's Pirates! a must-have Xbox game is the complete openness of it.

    It's got the same magic that The Sands of Time had, and then just slaps you around with how great the new gameplay is. I'm in heaven once again.

    Then I got this puppy online, and I was totally blown away. This is a great game.

    The best Smackdown game I've played.

    Dawn of Sorrow is what is right about Castlevania. And it's what the Nintendo DS should be doing in it's games, rather than trying to be something it's not.

    Not only does it have 20 of the hottest cars in the world, but customizing them is half the fun. And you can play this game online, which is a big must for the PS2 right now.

    Tomb Raider fans finally once again have that must-have.

    Don't get me wrong, I love this game, but every now and then I get annoyed because someone is lighting my butt up and I can’t seem to find out where the hell it is coming from. I just wish that Factor 5 threw in a camera angle button so you can see what is going on.

    Fighting is done with a combination of the face buttons on the controller. It's much deeper than the "GTA" fighting system, as here you can use your punch and kick buttons in combos, as well as jump and throw opponents.

    The game has a great fun feel too it, from little quirks like an arcade filled with Activision classics such as Pitfall, Call of Duty and River Raid, to a school girl outfit wearing nymphomaniac vampire and her power hungry business woman sister who continually fight and bicker; moronic ghouls (vampires grunts), cheating doctors that you can blackmail for some easy cash.

    The graphics in Tony Hawk's Underground 2 look so much better then the first THUG.
    • 72 Metascore

    There are enough countries, enough modes and good enough graphics and sound to make you forget you’re playing a handheld, and the controls should feel very natural (especially if you played on the PS2).

    This game will give any gamer a headache, but in the good way; the way that will keep you coming back for more, so stock up on Advil.

    This game is well worth the 90 score I have given it. If you want to get the hell scared out of you, check out Fatal Frame II Crimson Butterfly Director's Cut for the Xbox system. And stay scared!

    If you enjoy flight sims (remember, no combat), then I have little doubt that you will enjoy the breadth of options, landscape, airports and aircraft that this game will provide for you.

    It's the perfect mix of old school mech action with an arcade feel to it.

    MVP has hands down the best pitcher/batter interface there is. I loved it last year and I love it here too.

    The presentation has a little more flash to it than in previous years.

    You get the sense when playing King of Fighters: Maximum Impact - Maniax that you're not really supposed to explore that third dimension, since the first two dimensions are what SNK know intimately.
