    How do you make a succesful movie to video game transformation? There have been many and many have failed to truly capture the movie that they're based on. I really don't know how you do this but I can tell you that Electronic Arts sure does.

    Although repetitive and flawed at times, Doom 3 is still one of the very best games to grace the Xbox.

    Max Payne is a gritty, blood-filled, third person shooter from Rockstar. If you are appalled by slow motion and gory killings, then you should look elsewhere.

    Another technical point of the game that’s stunning is the amount of zombies that can be on the screen at any given time.

    Although the online portion of the game is clearly the best part, the single-player hasn't been neglected by any means. If you are a Star Wars nut or looking for some hectic online action, go out and buy Star Wars Battlefront II, because it is quite possibly one of the best Star Wars games ever released.

    Yahorn! Let me try that again. Yahorn! Okay now that's better. With one simple word, I've separated those who haven't played Return to Castle Wolfenstein from those who have.

    The graphics will simply amaze you in this off the wall game.

    It brings everything that was great about the first two iterations, while adding jaw-dropping graphics and even more Xbox Live goodness.

    The environments are for the most part, spectacular. War debris is everywhere, worn out tanks lay forgotten amongst the destroyed buildings. All of it does relate for one hell of a war feel and setting.

    There were many enjoyable aspects, and each time I covered one, I found myself wanting to go back and experience it all over again, rather than sitting down to write about it. To me, that is the sign of a good game.

    With the main idea behind THUG being customization, it delivers on every level.

    Just looking at the cover of the game, you can tell that it is good.

    A definite must-have for fans of the movies and action junkies, pick this one up at your next opportunity and I'll guarantee you a good time.

    The graphics in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath are breathtaking. The in-game graphics and especially the cutscene graphics are, honestly, the best graphics I've seen of any EA game that's been on the Xbox to date.

    Amped 2 continues the tradition established by the original, but adds a few new twists to keep gamers interested.

    Almost every ingredient, from the engrossing storyline, to the solid graphic engine and wondrous sound options brings this game to the forefront of the action genre.

    Really, my only complaint with Pariah is the enemy AI.

    Terminal Reality and Majesco prove once again that videogame sequels don't suck - that is of course, unless they're supposed to.

    Otogi is a classic samurai-fighting, sword-slashing; destroy everything in sight action game. You don't need a good understanding of the story to just plow through the game, utilizing the wide array of weaponry and magic given to you.

    This game can be summed up quite simply: If you love tactical RPGs, then you will love this game.

    This is one game that is not afraid to lay it all out on the table and let the chips fall.

    Where Vietnam easily makes the most improvement, however, is in its visuals. Boasting a much more powerful rendering engine, the environments of Vietnam come alive.

    For a real challenge, you'll want to play on All-Star or Legend, because hitting in the other difficulties is just way too easy.

    You might want to keep a baseball bat handy to maintain order if more than four people are in attendance, as nobody will want to give up a controller and there is always a high probability of violence ensuing over who gets to play next.

    I don't know how Kush Games could have implemented their use of the ESPN license any more, because the presentation in this game is unprecedented

    Racing mixed with the streets and underground is something no one should pass on. Fast cars, fast women, and a customization mode any underground racer would be proud of spells nothing but fun.

    After playing for about 30 minutes the first time I put the disk in, I had to actually force myself to stop and walk away. My adrenaline was pumping so quickly, I thought my heart was going to jump right out of my chest.

    Ubisoft is hoping this time around that a revamped, "free form' fighting system will address the repetitiveness of the first installment, and a darker tone will create more of an edge that will hopefully generate more sales out of the gate than with "The Sands of Time."
