    Ubi has improved virtually every aspect of the gameplay from the previous two versions, and introduced even more new options and gameplay types. With the solo campaign, co-op campaign and online multiplayer, it's almost like having three games in one.

    Builds upon everything that was so spectacular about Burnout 3, and just takes it all to a whole new level. It's fast, gorgeous and just an absolute blast to play.

    While feature-packed, Halo 2's Live interface will take a little getting used to. It's not that it's laid out poorly or anything like that. It's just that the sheer number of options you have available to you for Live play are staggering.

    Not only is this new shooter one of the most beautiful-looking games ever made, but it’s quite possibly one of the best single player adventures ever.

    The story to San Andreas is by far the best of any GTA game to date. As you progress, you will experience turning points to this story that drive you to see the next cutscene, something that has never been done in a GTA game before.

    What do you get when you mix an upstart console with an upstart game developer? You get a flagship title called Halo.

    By far, the best RPG I've played since "Final Fantasy 7."

    Issuing orders and planning strategy for a day in the life of a solider highly trained in Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT), is what Full Spectrum Warrior is all about.

    The squad based combat was a great idea and the developers executed it perfectly.

    GT3 simply is one of the best looking racers to date on any system. In fact, it's one of the best looking games available for the PS2, even being two years past its initial release date.

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow takes things to the next level, improving on virtually every aspect of the original, and adding great and innovative new on-line multiplayer capabilities as well.

    In Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition, or GOTY, both of those expansion packs become available for the Xbox Morrowind fan. Hundreds of hours of gameplay have been added to the 200+ hours in the original, making this one of the largest RPG's ever.

    As you walk through eerie forests, spooky castles and haunted mines, the game pretty much thrusts you into the feeling of despair.

    The graphics are marvelous, the sounds enthrall you, the character models are remarkably realistic looking, the environment is engrossing and the controls are optimized to control Gordon Freeman and all of his actions.

    When people get together and play as a team, the game truly shines. Battlefield 2 is the ultimate package. You’ve got gorgeous visuals, excellent gameplay and superb sound.

    THUG 2 is much more than "just another sequel" and could only offer the player more if they included a skateboard inside the game case.

    The campaign is the most intense ten hours I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing in videogame. Online the game has been vastly improved.

    When it comes to video games based on the Star Wars universe, gamers have often been disappointed by games that lack compelling stories, interesting characters and sub-plots, and truly enthralling gameplay. Not to fear, Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic (KOTOR) finally delivers.

    RS3's team-based gameplay, combined with good AI troops and enemies, and a cool voice command system that's incredibly simple to use make this game amazingly fun to play.

    As great as the first Project Gotham Racing (PGR) was, the second installment has improved on virtually every feature of the first, while adding a few new ones to boot.

    Madden 2005's Franchise mode is unrivaled at any level by any game. The level of creativity that can be expressed in this game is amazing.

    ESPN NFL 2K5 is the single greatest football game ever made. Even with a $49.99 price tag, this game would surely have been a huge seller. However, the $20 price makes this game a steal.

    Spider-Man 2 is the definitive superhero game, and a benchmark for all future comic book titles.

    This game is one of the best 2D to 3D translations I've seen from Nintendo, since "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time."

    For those of you that have sat behind the wheel of your favorite console racing game, STRAP YOURSELF IN! This is not your ordinary race-to-the-finish driving game.

    From the second that they catch you in their radar, these boys are all over you like white on rice and these guys are not afraid of trading paint to put you into a guardrail or two. Just getting through the course without getting pinched is an accomplishment in itself.

    I’ve never seen a game like this before, where the graphics, sounds, and surroundings actually make the game creepy.

    Replicating the playing of an actual guitar was no easy task, but Harmonix pulled it off with flying colors.
