    While technically the game is just a better done fps than usual, it is just so gosh darn fun.

    The sound in Halo 2 is the best I have ever heard in any game... Each weapon has such a distinctive sound now that you know what is going on in the next room before you even get there, from the rattle of a SMG to the haunting whistling of a Hunter's beam.

    Oblivion is so deep it is hard to escape its grasp. Few things keep it down, such as loading times, and a few problems with visuals and sound, but the gameplay, the most important piece is dead-on.

    On the enemies, you can see individual scales shining perfectly in each light source, see through their translucent wings, and be dazzled by their massive energy attacks.

    The multiplayer in Chaos Theory is incredibly addictive.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    With a robust single-player mode that includes a ton of unlockables, even those who don't plan on playing online should still consider picking up this game.

    If you have XBL you will enjoy yourselves for months if not YEARS to come.
    • 93 Metascore

    If you already have the PS2 version or you can find the PS2 version for cheaper, your probably better off buying that, as the game doesn't really take much advantage of the Xbox hardware.

    • 90 Critic Score
    With a very interesting combat system as well as the ability to interact with and climb on almost everything, The Sands of Time is by far one of the most fun and memorable games in the action/adventure genre yet.

    Microsoft did the impossible, not only did they put out a superior game on their first spin around the track they did it in a big way that will force every other racer hoping to compete to evolve in more ways than one.

    • 92 Critic Score
    A great game. It just has an arcadey feel to it, but I guess Sega is trying to appeal to the common user and not the hardcore football fan.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    The essentials of this game are near perfect.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    A masterpiece.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Sure the controls are a little clunky and the soundtrack is awkward, but Advanced Warfighter shines on the 360 with it's graphics.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    Nothing short of stellar. These guys did a bang up job on the new multiplayer levels and are well deserving of your hard earned money.

    It allows up to sixteen players to take the battle online and delivers on all accounts a satisfying WWII shooter. If you do happen to have Xbox Live (which I hope every Xbox 360 owner at least attempts to get), go immediately to the ‘headquarters’ mode and play that to death.

    • 92 Critic Score
    More than just a progression of Burnout 3, it is a full-blown experience that is loud, explosive, and filled with energy... Every turn, every depth-defying jump, and every cataclysmic crash is extremely stylized, and tons of fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With its rich story, inventive surroundings and characters, there is definitely just enough depth to keep you coming at least one or two more times after completing it once.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A fantastic title that delivers what people expect in presentation and gameplay—nothing more nothing less.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The average length of the game showcases the only real drawback to the game: its lack of substantial replay value. However, the open-ended structure, combined with the fact that every minute of the game is a satisfying experience, warrants at least a second time through.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Though it can be a bit strenuous at times, this title is definitely a blast.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is the perfect blend of style, substance, visuals, and sound you will find on any system... but you will blow through the game very quickly, it is a bit on the easy side sometimes, and without HDTV you can’t truly experience it.

    • 95 Critic Score
    We've waited forever for a good RPG, but not only have we gotten one, Bethesda has left us stunned.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A scary romp into the dark trenches of the mind that is ironically using a formula used for games of the same name for the past fifteen years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Offers the most realistic and comprehensive game of hockey you'll find on any platform. With a stellar gameplay balance, huge number of features and a lengthy list of improvements over last year's title, it's safe to say that ESPN NHL 2k5 is a must-own game for any fan of hockey.

    • 91 Critic Score
    The live ammo critters are filled with great texturing and visual genious. The live ammo actually blinks and interacts with the environment often found in the game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Whether you're a pubescent teenager, who likes to get cheap peep shows from games, an Xbox gamer looking for something new to play, or a DOA fan, there are better choices out there but none quite like Dead or Alive 3.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    If you are a casual gamer who can wait for Madden you should probably just wait.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The best addition, the QB Vision cones will is also a definite change that will at least warrant NFL fans this game a rent.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A great game that fans of the first game shouldn't hesitate to add to their collection. The chances that it will have the same lasting impact as the original are unlikely, mostly since the game just hasn't changed very much.
