    There is simply so much depth that even after 4 months of playing this game, and years of playing the preceding titles in the series I am still amazed by something every single match.

    Fast, smooth, detailed, and colorful...THPS3 simply makes the previous games of the series look like battered stepchildren.

    The game uses DTS Interactive and SurroundSoundScape audio technologies to deliver a dynamically enveloping and completely stunning audio presentation.

    SSX
    With tight gameplay, huge environments, and stunning graphics, SSX is the most enjoyable snowboarding game ever made, and it is easily one of the best games available for the PS2.

    It's so good, I find it humorous that ESPN uses Madden for its pre-game show.

    I've been playing soccer games for more than 15 years, ... Now while there have been many excellent live-action soccer games over that period nothing comes close to either Evolution or GameNight.

    In the end, I want substance over style, and NCAA Football 2004 is the poster child for that.

    Incredible, and if you buy one live-action soccer game this year, make it either "ISS Pro Evolution" or ESPN MLS GameNight.

    The best fighting game I have ever played. I don't think the game is perfect, but is solid in every area.

    I don't know if Keanu Reeves is a gamer, but if he is, he would probably say, "Whoa, these are some most excellent graphics...dude!"

    EA must have been hanging out in newsgroups, forums, and review sites listening to consumers complain about the passing game as the secondary AI has definitely improved for the better.

    A refreshing break from typical graphics-oriented games.

    Updated Career mode? Check. New tricks? Check. Online play? Check. Hopelessly addictive gameplay? Check! Yup, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 just about has it all.

    The great AI, realistic QB decisions, incredible off season, and improved graphics makes this the football game of choice.

    Just flat out fun to play. Is it better than "Sega GT?" Yes. Is it better than "F-355?" Yes. I can honestly say that it's the best racer on the Dreamcast and on any system for that matter. "Whoa! Man, are you saying this is the best racer of all time?" Yep, that's what I'm saying.

    If it weren't for the beautiful graphics, great sound, awesome gameplay, and enormous replay value NBA2K1 would have nothing going for it.

    If it had a couple more adjustments for force feedback and pedals, and had the ability so save unfinished races, it would almost be as perfect as a racing game is capable of being today.

    The gameplay engine is brilliant, not only for its attention to detail, but also for its perpetual challenge. I don’t think I can categorize the gameplay as “easy to pick up, but difficult to master” but I never think I’m being cheated by the CPU.

    To say that Madden 2005 is the best of all the games is accurate, but is it the strongest year-to-year improvement? To that, I say no. Nonetheless, Madden is king.

    Even in a year when EA's FIFA series was pretty solid, Winning Eleven again reigns king because of its excellent game engine and overall depth.

    Without a doubt one of the best console racing games I have played in the past few years and deserves to mentioned in the same with the likes of "Gran Turismo," "Ridge Racer" and "Sega GT."
    • 91 Metascore

    I love both games, with ESPN being a better gameplay game and Madden holding the edge with game modes and options. But, graphically, the two are similar and so is the replay value.

    I'm not saying Street is more or less realistic than "Live," but Street is better at being an arcade b-ball title than "Live" or "2k3" at being a sim.

    The catalog of user created courses and online flexibility make you consistently want to come back for more.

    As the parity of sports games increases (almost all games have the same game modes and similar solid graphics), the difference comes in the A.I., and this is the one area where ESPN truly shines. This is my pick for the strongest PS2 baseball game on the market for this 2004 season.

    College Hoops is the second best sports game I played in 2004, with Madden taking the top prize.

    If you enjoyed "SSX Tricky," you will love SSX 3--it's as simple as that. Even if you hated "Tricky," you still might dig this sequel.

    The advanced controls let you take unprecedented control of virtually every aspect of the game. With it the running game is improved and the defense rises to a new level. All this boils down to one great football game.

    If I could sum up my over 5000 word review in one word, it would be "Wow."

    Sure, the graphics aren't what we'd expect from a PS2 title, but the gameplay is what counts, and 2K2 has it.
