    When it comes down to it, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat lays a solid foundation for the series on the consoles, but doesn't quite live up to the high expectations we had for it.

    Having no real 'action' elements to speak of or cutting-edge technology requirements, it gives you a solid experience that actually challenges the mental aspect of the player, rather then their reflexes.

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

    Not only do you get to workout in the privacy of your own home; this virtual gym offers a lifetime membership, a one-on-one personal trainer, thousands of food recipes and is open 24 hours a day, every single day of the year, whenever it's convenient for you.

    The fact that it's the first PS2 game to actually use two DVD discs shows that it's a much larger game than any before it, but it still doesn't live up to what it could have been.

    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.

    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.

    Hunter: The Reckoning is a fun game. The single player mode is enjoyable on its own, but this was made to be a party game.

    The gameplay is smooth as butter and the Skill Stick System is easily one of the best additions to sports games in recent years.

    Yes, we’d love to see the ESPN license used to a greater extent and even have leagues online. But, we did get a game that plays extremely well and looks gorgeous.

    One of the strongest aspects of the game is the outstanding story.

    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.

    A very good basketball game. There are things that could've been done better but doing one of the things just right, like the Superstar characteristics, seems to make all that moot. Even with the noticeably skewed player ratings, the game is quite fun.

    Many people still aren't sure what to expect from the game, and neither was I when I picked it up, after debating between it and Gladiator. When I got home, however, I was very pleasantly surprised.

    Prey has a great storyline, although it seems basic at first. It’s innovative, looks gorgeous, and is extremely fun to play.

    I've never had so many weapons available to me in a game before. It's almost overwhelming.

    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.

    For players fed up with over-simplistic puzzles or seemingly unnecessary backtracking to find out-of-place items to put into even more out-of-place statues then you are in for a delightful treat.

    If you're on FPS junkie, then I'm sure you'll have a hoot with the game and it'll be worth your time and money.

    What makes the humor so great in the single-player portion of the game is the wonderful voice acting.

    Somewhat reminiscent of a cross between James Bond and Mr. Clean, Agent 47 doesn't bring much that's new to this latest addition in the series.

    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.

    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.

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

    It's a game no one who enjoys a good mafia theme should miss. With superb voice acting, a hell of a story and the ability to control an entire city, The Godfather is an experience you shouldn't at least give a long rental.

    Those of you that haven’t had a chance to check out the franchise yet owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, as it is one of the best online games available on the Xbox 360.

    If you're a fan of action, blood and gore, then this game deserves a spin.

    Fans of the first Dark Alliance, game will love it, but I found that, closer to the end of the game, the storyline felt very thrown together and I wasn't completely satisfied with the way the game ended.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The strength of this game is in its replay value. You can lose hours upon hours of your life simply checking your CD/DVD collection for monsters to add to your encyclopedia.

    • 81 Critic Score
    The clean graphics, quirky music and amusing characters and situations you’ll run into help keep things fresh.
