    Logitech has done a lot to help out with this with its new force feedback steering wheel. With a full 900 degrees of rotation, the wheel will fight you around turns, and gives gamers the best possible control interface for this masterpiece of a racing simulator. I can’t imagine playing GT4 without it.

    The space missions are an absolute blast, and it seems like the tank missions just screw us out of more flight in the name of diversity.

    The sandbox nature and tight, polished gameplay make this one of the first games in 2005 you should play.

    Fans of the series and of great action-RPGs in general should quickly don The Minish Cap. While it's not the longest or most challenging Zelda ever, it's more than worth a purchase.

    My favorite mode is still the one where you must pick your team from a random group of players and go at and opponent in the same situation – putting square pegs in round holes has never been as much fun in the NFL.

    If you can get into the whole sexual suggestiveness of the title, you might have some fun, otherwise, invest your money somewhere else for some actual gameplay.

    What does change up quite a bit is the amount and complexity of the puzzles in the game. It's actually pretty refreshing to have so many situations that require something besides combat.

    Do not play this game alone or with one other person. It just isn't that fun when you don't have a minimum of three or the ideal four players for the game. This is a party game, and no one likes someone who likes to party alone.

    The minigames are easily one of the high-lights of the game.

    You might be surprised that this game isn't an Xbox game when you first see it on the TV. It looks great and while it does have some telltale signs of being a PS2 game, it's still absolutely gorgeous.

    For a handheld like the DS this is the perfect little obsessive compulsive game to keep you occupied for five minutes while you wait for a table, or as a game your girlfriend can swipe from you and figure out that touching is good.

    It doesn’t excel, but it’s the best portable football game you’ll find on the market, even with its only average graphics and sound, and generations old gameplay.

    This is a great looking racing game that really pushes these early capabilities of the DS and does it while running at 60 frames per second. The problem is that the gameplay is just uninspired.

    It's an absolutely beautiful game and really sucks you right into the world. I don't know that I've been as immersed in an RPG since "Knights of the Old Republic."

    It's the best of its kind on the consoles with the historical details, cinematic gameplay and fun factor overwhelming some unoriginality and glitches.

    In one of the most bizarre games I’ve ever played, Sonic team has taken some elements of "WarioWare" and combined it with the style and quirkiness of a game like "Space Channel 5."

    It’s one of the hardest 2D platformers this side of "Viewtiful Joe" and while the game seems slightly short, it takes quite a while to play through it successfully.

    That's the big thing this title has going for it. It's fun to experience this amazing world, and if there was something focused on during the game design it was making sure that the world was a good place to go play in.

    I like how the game has been tightened up. The new driving missions are much better, the difficulty has been toned down (though maybe a bit too much), and the new weapon mods and Light Jak powers add something new.

    I felt so screwed out of some sort of satisfaction, screwed out of more levels off of the Halo, screwed out of many hours of my life that I just poured into one of the most amazingly bad excuses for a single-player first-person shooter campaign. I was bored, I was tired and by the end of it, I was just really pissed off.

    Up Your Arsenal may be the best game on the PlayStation 2. This is "Mario 64" level quality folks. If you own a PS2 and don't play this game, I'll come to your house personally with a Sheepinator and remove you from the gaming gene pool.

    Easily one of the most addictive party games I have ever played.

    Isn’t a great game, but it’s a lot of fun. Look at it as the popcorn movie of the game world, it’s really pretty, but only skin (or polygon?) deep.

    The one point of Magna Cum Laude that stands out is the fairly hysterical humor of the game. Borrowing pages from movies such as "Animal House," Magna Cum Laude has some of the funniest lines ever uttered in a video game. The characters and the dialog bring unprecedented humor to the consoles.
