    Worlds above what the first game was, with the greatly improved graphics (beautiful Cel-Shaded graphics)and game modes.

    The game is addictive. I just couldn’t put it down until I was done playing.

    NBA
    I am blown away by the quality of NBA. It's not perfect, and I think going forward, there needs to be some tightening of the computer AI. But other than that and the freaky free-throwing, this is one impressive handheld Basketball game.

    More or less the PS2 version of the game, and that is not bad at all. You'll have just as much fun with it too. Great single player stuff, and head-to-head multiplayer is ok.

    My complaints are only two; the computer is too freaking hard at times, and Xbox Live was nowhere to be found. But other than that, NBA Ballers is all up in the hizzouse!

    It's not the controls or the FPS feel that started to get me into the game. It's the variation of the missions and your specific goals that make PDZ so interesting and addicting.

    The right stick controls also take a lot of the learning curve out of Street that made the first ones so hard to learn.

    It's a must have for any DDR fan, yet easy enough to get started with! With three difficulty levels, and tons of songs to play, anyone will enjoy this game!

    It has a very good storyline backed by some great character design and some very good scares.

    So much better then the last version. And with saying that, the last version was also great. One problem I did find was how hard this game was. You can set the level of difficulty but damn even the easy is tough!

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

    I must say that I was actually very impressed with the sounds in SWAT: Global Strike Team.

    I was very impressed with almost every aspect of Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors. It is a very fun game that is easy to pick up on the controls. The graphics look amazing and the new engine is very sweet.

    Shooting has been made a lot easier. That experiment of hitting the circle button twice to shoot is thankfully over. Instead, it's like a normal hoops game where you hold down the button until you get to the peak of your shot, and then let go.

    This game could have been a complete disaster but in the end it really turned out to be a gem. With saying this, many people will not like this new concept.

    Computer AI is the big problem, it's sometimes frustratingly hard, and unrealistic. But that's it. Everything else about ESPN College Hoops is gravy.

    The characters in the game look incredible with a lot of detail and animation. The animations get repetitive after a while, but they are very smooth; and sometimes bust-out-loud funny.

    It brings the comic book to life right in front of your eyes.

    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.

    I can see the series getting a little tired, and it doesn't quite have that magical "aura" that the first couple did. But nonetheless there's plenty to keep you busy.

    Coming back to commentary once again are the hilarious team of Tim Kitzrow and Jim Shorts. These guys are two of the funniest commentators I've ever heard.

    The game is great, but I must warn you. It is extremely hard in the later levels. And it might not be for everybody.

    Look, the only real downside to this game is that it's pretty much a near identical port of MotoGP 3. A couple new tracks, a couple new bikes. But overall, it's the same game with a new coat of paint. That paint just happens to be the prettiest coat you've ever seen. New MotoGP players are going to drool over this game. Veterans of the series have a reason to trade their current versions in. Even as a near port, this is still one helluva racing game.

    The open-ended gameplay and un-lockable items keep things interesting enough and the sweet 3D graphics round out a solid game which is well worth the price tag.

    Nothing is more basketball than humiliating your opponent with ball handling and dribbling, and the Freestyle Control offers the gratification and humiliation experienced by any player no a court that was just faked out in front of a sell-out crowd.

    And most important, who doesn't love a good crash where the driver flies out the window into a tree? There is a little of something here for everyone who is just looking for a little fun. Definitely worth the purchase.
