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

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

    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.

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

    After playing the game for many hours, I realized why this game sold so many copies and won so many awards. Almost every aspect of the game is done to perfection.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Barreling your vehicle down the road towards your impending doom will cause uncontrollable giggling, with the excitement of a kid on Christmas, at the mayhem you're getting ready to unleash and witness during your replay.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The second installment of the Soul Calibur franchise simply bursts with greatness. The sequel to the already great fighting game is, quite simply, bigger and better.

    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.

    The sights and sounds in MOHAA are also amazing. Each pull of the trigger releases an ultra-realistic sound effect that 2015 recorded from authentic World War II weapons.

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

    The robotic army better watch themselves because it is all about your arsenal. There are plenty of unique weapons to obliterate the opposition.

    Now, don't think it's like The Jungle Book here; this isn't a jungle full of furry critters and swinging apes. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

    There aren't many action/adventure games that can compete with Ninja Gaiden. In fact, it may be the best game of all time in that genre.

    It's clear after playing Sega's latest, that all others will bow down when ESPN comes to your town.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The next generation of shooters has arrived. If you’re a fan of the series, or even if you’re just a fan of good military-style shooters, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter is a must-buy.

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