    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).

    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.

    From a top notch graphics engine to some really fun multiplayer, FPS gamers will enjoy this just as much as last year. The only knock I can say on the game is that it is maybe a little too much like "COD2."

    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.

    The difficulty settings are well balanced to allow both the novice and veteran to get a good challenge every time they play.

    The perfect mix of action and strategy. The challenges within are tough enough to keep you interested, but not so easy that you will complete the game in a few days.

    The game that we have been waiting for. It is the best GTA game on a portable system and it made a smooth transition from console to portable.

    A marvelous example of great graphics and sound bundled with a great storyline.

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

    This is such an improvement over "WWE Raw" it's not funny.

    Another Climax masterpiece.

    A must have for the sports fan, and for anyone who even remotely enjoys the game of Tennis. It is the beat-all-end-all of Tennis games as it stands right now.

    The backgrounds look as gorgeous as any snowboarding game I've seen, with lots of lush snow, trees, houses and lodges, and other objects strewn about. The mountain courses are linked together, and well built.

    And it's backed up by authentic sound effects, some decent music, and the vocal stylings once again of veteran commentator Tim Kitzrow.

    "Tiger Woods" will remain the top golf game on the Playstation 2. But on the Xbox, Links is the way to go. Presentation and gameplay are very much equal between the two, but online gameplay is what sets Links apart. It deserves to be your golf game this year on the Xbox.

    What has struck me most about Outrun2 is that Sega has designed the entire game around the original single-player arcade game, complete with slick car and cute girlfriend in the passenger seat, branching track levels, and yes, that familiar music. It's the same game I remembered playing so long ago, but with a total graphical upgrade for starters, and so much more under the hood!

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

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

    One of the most real military games I've seen in a very long time. Even outperforming "America's Army," which was a pretty good game. This is by far my new favorite of the Tom Clancy games.

    And it's not so much the backgrounds or stadiums, which don't get me wrong look great, but the animation of the players. EA Sports has always managed to get the players running, tackling, goalkeeping, and kicking right on the money. Even better than last year's game.

    The controls are perfect for a hockey game while also only being as difficult as you want them to be.

    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!

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

    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.

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

    It stars popular characters, makes good use of music and sound effects, and has a lot of gameplay variety. Add those things together with some nice looking graphics, and you've got a solid title.

    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.
