    If you loved Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 or 2 on any other system, and you are a PS2 owner, this is a must have.

    The depth is unlike anything that most sports gamers will ever experience. There are so many different ways to play and enjoy this game, it is almost as if there are five or six different games all rolled into one.

    This is only marginally a racing game - it's a game of destruction and chaos that holds more in common with a first person shooter than with a true racer.

    Replay value like no other game that I’ve played to date.

    With tons of secret characters, missions, and tricks to unlock, you’ll be playing this game until the snow melts next spring.

    Instead of relying on graphics and frills, Konami is putting all it’s eggs in the gameplay basket. They figure that if they improve that and leave other parts a bit lacking people will still enjoy it. I suppose that’s not that bad and we can almost count on great playing games down the line.

    World Soccer Winning Eleven 7 International not only is the best soccer game I have encountered; but it is one of, if not the best sports games, period, for the PS2. Any fan of soccer must own this if you own a PS2. Any gamer that likes a sports game with substance also needs to own this.

    A good game and light-years better than 2k2... The sim engine and the inability to get sacks are parts of the game where improvements are needed.

    If the competition is Gran Turismo, there's no contest here. The complete integration of online play, full vehicle customization, better racing AI, and many other features raise Forza above the pack.

    With the tightened game play and unbelievably deep owners mode I honestly believe this is the best version of Madden yet.

    I must say that this might be the best sports game I have ever played. I think the replay value of this game goes up exponentially with the master league feature. Combine that with a physics engine that makes each game seem like unique, and this game is a “must buy”.

    You just never know how the AI will react, but at least they do take the timeouts and run the hurry up offense when they are down. It doesn't play dumb. In fact, the AI will go into a no-huddle offense, just to throw you off occasionally. How cool is that!!

    If you want a great game to play online, go with "Links"; if you want a great career mode, go with Tiger Woods. Both games are equal (I know, it’s a cop out) and you can’t go wrong with either one.

    The pinball running, even if you can circumvent it much of the time with the Y button, as well as the aging game engine knock this game 10% for me right away.

    Definitely justifies the purchase of a PS2.

    The bread and butter of this game is it's gameplay and presentation. The graphics are bar-none the best out there. If you are looking for football at it's best, look no further than ESPN NFL Football.

    A huge selection of cars, custom soundtracks, and all the extras makes this title a contender for game of the year. Throw in Xbox Live functionality; and you'll be playing this one for a long time.

    A lot of fun and the depth of features is beyond compare. Easily one of the most immersive football titles made to date.

    If you liked the previous two versions of “Tony Hawk” you won’t be disappointed in this one. However, if you expect or need some earth-shattering changes from the previous versions in order to upgrade, then your gaming dollars might best be spent elsewhere.

    If you’re a huge basketball fan, you need to have this game. If you’re not a huge basketball fan, you should still get this game.

    In an online world where racing games are usually about respect, caution, and not causing pile-ups, Burnout: Revenge is all about what you really want to do.

    One of the most ambitious attempts ever made to replicate arguably the most complicated sport on the planet, and in most cases, it hits the mark in spectacular fashion.

    The best gets better. No doubt about it. The guys at Neversoft got pushed by the competition and they responded.

    What's missing is fun, while Madden plays the closest representation of football (still a ways to go), it needs to interject the passion of the NFL into the game.

    The biggest and inexcusable disappointment is that we Americans and Canadians are being short-changed in comparison to our European counterparts with regard online play on the Xbox and PS2 consoles.

    Visual Concepts has started their series on the Xbox in outstanding fashion. If you are looking for the best the series has to offer, I suggest you go out and get this game.

    I’ve just had so much fun with this game that it’s practically renewed my interest in PC racing single handedly.

    I know that I'll be racing N02 online for quite some time, and it's the new crown jewel of online racing sims.

    It looks fantastic, sounds fantastic, and possesses unrivaled gameplay – online or off.

    By far one of the best looking games for the Gamecube, one of the best playing, and a heck of a lot of fun. There really is not anything to complain about with this game other than the difficulty.
