    The gameplay is smoother than ever, the presentation has increased and the brand new Owner's Mode is a real delight to play.

    This just goes to show you what the GameCube is really capable of achieving.

    Maxis could have included a few more items and ideas rather than wait for the first expansion pack release. Even with that misfortune, The Sims 2 is the type of game that almost anyone can enjoy.

    In this game you have not one, but two choices of a season mode. We have the return of the Dynasty Mode, but we also have ourselves a second option: the Owner's Mode.

    A decent gem in a genre so diluted by horribly rushed games, or other games that maybe already done what this game does.

    It’s fast, fun and absolutely gorgeous. If you’ve already picked up "Call of Duty 2" and are looking for another shooter to add to your game library, look no further than Quake 4.

    Do you want a near-perfect combination of both, and the game that takes on almost all the qualities of a successful launch title? Do you want this reviewer’s most enjoyed game on the Xbox 360? Get Need for Speed. Be the most wanted.

    From early on in the game, it becomes very apparent that Tomb Raider: Legend has the heart of the previous games at its core.

    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is easy to get into, fun, exciting, challenging and downright addictive.

    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.

    The unique ways to dispose of your enemies, along with the various abilities Rayne has, keeps you pushing forward, though each stage does seem to have its own area that you'll want to skip over.

    Serious Sam is a true mindless shooter. There is no story, no real idea of what you are accomplishing, and it is almost impossible to run out of ammo.

    Embark on the ride of your life as you prepare to careen down SSX3's three peaks with your favorite characters, including four new riders. It's you versus the mountain in this extreme snowboarding challenge.

    NFL Street brings the 'street' style of gameplay to America's favorite contact sport.

    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.

    With more than 50 areas to explore, a random dungeon generator - so that each time you play the dungeons are unique - and over 10,000 randomly placed items, this game has a little more depth than just your regular garden variety hack n' slash RPG.

    One of the most important factors of gameplay is the layout of the controller. Square Enix has done an excellent job of making all of your tasks simpler by utilizing the DualShock 2 efficiently and naturally.

    This inconsistent AI provided some major frustration, as well as some pain to my controller as it came in contact with one of my walls.

    The opening sequence screams "Saving Private Ryan" (or better yet "Medal of Honor") at you, as you're sitting next to several of your comrades on your way to storm a beach and capture some enemy bunkers.

    If Madden NFL 06 is the blueprint of what’s to come from this series, then we as gamers are definitely in for a treat next year and even further down the line.

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

    If you like Tom Clancy, first person shooters and outdoor combat, this game is a must buy!

    Enter Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder, an expansion pack, to give fans of the original more of the same heart pounding, squad based action.

    Throughout the game, you'll be thrust into different roles. Before it ends, you'll have been an American, Russian and British solider. Each of these soldiers will have their 'day in the sun' so to speak.

    The AI itself makes a formidable opponent. While not perfect (it has problems using defense cards properly), it certainly will challenge you in many ways.

    The Owner's Mode is pretty nifty. You not only control the team rosters, but now you control absolutely everything on the team.

    SkyGunner is everything that shooter fans have come to expect.

    Imitation is the finest form of flattery, and Sammy Studios has gracefully given a nod to the previous masters and has moved on in its own direction.

    The Pearl Harbor level is the most adrenaline pumping half hour I've ever had in a game. There are planes, explosions and soldiers dying right and left.

    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.
