    I appreciate that they expanded the tricks, and added some real players to the mix. And the new Gamebreaker is nice. But overall the trick controls are just as difficult, if not more, than the first game. And not having online gameplay is a big big big issue for me.

    The game does little to add to the original title.

    The game starts out fun, but after awhile it can become very boring.

    If you already have any zoo games, you can just skip this one, as it does little to add to the genre so it is not a “must have”.

    While the game itself is short, the levels are pretty long; and there are no checkpoints at all! This is a massive pet peeve of mine.

    The graphics are somewhat weak in this game.

    Just not as good as I hoped. And not having online gameplay is a big big big issue for me.

    Given all its shortcomings this is not a title that I will be shouting about from the mountaintop.

    Even with the painfully long load screens and the lags in the game play I still enjoy this game.

    So, why will this game stay in my rotation? Simple. I will keep playing this game for the sole reason that you can play up to 5 person multiplayer with just one game card.

    If your idea of a good time is rubbing your stylus across the screen of your DS to simulate petting your dog, then you’ll have hours of enjoyment, but most people will choose to play a real game, and pet a real dog.

    Frustrating and slow gameplay may scare off gamers not ready to give the game an extended try. But I have to say once again that at least someone is stepping up and trying something new.

    I hate to say this after being such a fan of much of Peter’s and the Lionhead Studios work, but once again Fable turns out to be nothing more than a legend.

    The Xbox is so capable of performing graphics that could blow these out of the water. There is so much to like about this game, but people are going to be turned off by how bad these graphics have made a downgrade from its PC brother.

    A pretty good platform game, but it really offers nothing new to the market.

    At its core, this is an old-school RPG. So if you are looking for a turn based RPG that you can play in the palm of your hand or if you are just feeling nostalgic for the days of yore, then you might want to check this game out.

    Frustrating because on one hand it does offer and present many cool things to the tactical strategy game genre – and does those things well, but on the other hand has poor design choices that make the game an endeavor just to enjoy the good aspects.

    The replay in any of these titles is much less than what you would find with the PC version. The linear storyline, and structured game flow really cut down on the nearly limitless options that are at your disposal in the computer version of the Sims games.

    Other then some updated graphics there is really nothing new here.

    Midway and Pitbull Syndicate missed a golden opportunity to really give "Burnout Revenge" a run for it's money, knowing what I know about the series. But instead, this game goes after "Midnight Club." And it does it without online gameplay, which I can't figure out at all.

    Not a bad game, but it seems very rushed. It also feels like the N-gage game, which downright sucked. But the framerate seems much faster, and the fact that the map is at the bottom is cool.

    But it's a general rule that when you knock down your opponent, you should be able to stomp on them, pin them, or something like that. Well, not here. Unless you actually knock your opponent down and stun them, you can't grab them or anything until they get back up on their own.

    There are still the variables in the game, like how you choose to interact with other people, but the game is fairly limited.

    It has its ups and downs, but the goods outweigh the bads in the very end.

    What happens when a game does all of the little things right, but doesn’t deliver much in the gameplay department? That’s exactly what happened with Cars.

    I was rather disappointed with the single player game. I was able to finish all of the single player missions with just a few hours of gameplay.

    I have to say I am vastly disappointed once again. The game is a bit better than the original FIFA Street, but still not as good as I thought it would be.
