    Ubisoft just can't seem to miss. They are on the verge of having a hitting streak reminiscent of Joe DiMaggio's 56 game run in the 1940's, and in doing so are on the verge of becoming one of the most successful publisher/developers around.

    Everything works well together and Clap Hanz should be complimented by improving on an already successful formula.

    If you are looking for a topnotch flier, you can call off the search. This one is a must-have for any PS2 owner.

    It has everything a gamer asks for: a great story, art design, excellent graphics, HD support, excellent sound, awesome gameplay and a creative premise all rolled into a package that is extremely entertaining.

    Ubisoft just can't seem to miss. In early August, they find themselves once again delivering a sure fire hit with Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow.

    The character models, environments and dare I say it 'boob physics' are the best ever seen in a fighting game, and maybe in any game out on the market today.

    Top Spin is THE game for tennis fans and even not-so tennis fans like me.

    To simply say this is a 'viewtiful' game to play would be an understatement.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay has breathed new life into movie-to-game adaptations. It is the wonderful mixture of graphical beauty and seamless gameplay, that we've all waited for.

    If you love college football, you will love this game.

    Courts range from Standard to Gimmick. Standard courts are just as they sound. Gimmick courts are courts with bizarre little features added on to make it either easier for you or harder for you, depending on how you play.

    As much as this review has so far been my picking apart Oblivion’s flaws, I’m compelled to get across to you the point that I do love this game and enjoy every minute I’m playing it.

    Just pick up a copy of MechAssault, along with an Xbox Live starter kit, and the wonders of online gaming on the powerful Xbox await you.

    Maybe its name has allowed it to slip under the proverbial radar. This game isn't about incarcerated inmates waiting to die. In fact, they should have called it Profanity-laced, Ass-kicking, Super, Glowing, Futuristic Frisbee Fest 2002.

    Aside from the gameplay changes made to MVP, EA Sports has also drastically overhauled the Dynasty mode. EA has managed to snag AA and AAA farm teams for all 30 of the MLB teams.

    What EA Sports has achieved in MVP 2004 is creating one of the deepest and most re-playable baseball games I've ever encountered.

    The gameplay this time around is much more refined, and even more mainstream one could argue, in an effort to appeal to a broader range of gamers. The missions are much more hectic, intense and dynamic.

    The level of replayability should keep you occupied for months and this is the version you have to have if you are a multiplatform owner, simply because of the special online co-op play.

    For those of you sticking with the Xbox this holiday season, I highly recommend picking up Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, as it is most definitely one of the better shooters released on the Xbox this year.

    You should like this game even if you have never played a flying game before. Crimson Skies doesn't get old very quickly nor does it involve redundancy or tediousness as seen in some other games.

    Have you ever wondered who would win a fight between Roy Jones Jr. and Muhammad Ali? Alternatively, have you ever wanted to mimic Rocky and become a contender? EA Sports gives you that chance in EA Sports' Fight Night 2004.

    It contains all the elements that made the first 3 so great, plus improved controls, graphics, and many more goals.

    Although some Rainbow Six veterans might not enjoy Lockdown, it's one of the best online games available for the Xbox. Those of you sick of shooting the Covenant should check out Lockdown, because it has a lot to offer.

    All in all, Road Trip gives the player exactly what we all cry for over and over again: Depth, Shelf-life and Affordability. This is no $50 three-hour tour that the average player can breeze through and then forget about.

    Beyond Good & Evil is easily worth the 9/10 I award it, and maybe even a bit more based of the power of the story alone. Hurry up and go buy it.

    Viva Piñata is more than just a game…it’s an experience.

    There is so much depth involved with the tremendous amount of variables, that you can get your party decimated in a short few seconds, even though you have all of the upgraded armor and weapons that money could buy.

    The game is damn good. Although there are still issues that need to be addressed, all of those things are overshadowed by the amazing gameplay.

    Hard hitting, bone breaking, smash mouth.

    At first glance, NFL Street 2 seems simple to master. However, after you scratch the surface, this is one of the deepest games available for the Xbox.
