    Realism is one of the major reasons this title is so amazing. After playing for a while it feels as though you have actually been to Hyrule.

    Tricky has everything that SSX has and, along with tons of DVD extras, gives us all another reason to crash those slopes again this year.

    The courses themselves are also graphical masterpieces. The size of the skating environments in THPS3 dwarfs the levels that were found in THPS2 and each level comes to life with rich detail.

    From the music on the radio to the individual sub-missions that make up a large part of the game, GTA3 pulls it off with amazing ease.

    While this season's team doesn't bring home the stuff that gangsta rappers' grills are made of, they do turn in a solid, respectable, silver-medal-winning performance.

    Having to get excited about what GT3 can do for the PlayStation2 gamer is like having to get excited for Christmas--it's a done deal. What's even better is that GT3 is best played with a cold beer open and sitting on the table next to you.

    Having never played either of these back in the day, I can assure you that both of these games rank among the best RPGs ever made.

    If you liked "Diablo II" and you are aching to get back in and play some more, there is no better reason than LoD.

    I've come to the conclusion that if there is even a glimpse of something with even the tiniest bit of fur on it, peeps will flock to it in droves, and it's to this I also attribute the success of "Basic Instinct."...BR3 is best left to the novice.

    Dated technology, distracting controls, and some downright sloppy programming undo what could have been a great game.

    The main problem with the gameplay, as it was with the first, is that there's no real reward for shooting well. As long as you duck at the right time you can hit a very low percentage of your shots and still finish the game.

    If you like to play in a digital sandbox and have an affinity for humor-leaning sci-fi, Startopia is not to be missed.

    The finest NASCAR racer to hit any console--setting a new standard that EA will have to follow.

    While there's still plenty of room for improvement (the inexcusable lack of a four-player mode), this game does so much innovative stuff, and does it right, that it's hard not to classify it as a must-have title.

    It's simple, robust gaming at its best.

    It is with out a doubt the best real-time strategy game on the market today. The multifaceted game play and shear volume of missions should keep you battling for spice until your eyes turn blue.

    Just know that you're in for a short ride that will leave you yearning for a full-fledged sequel.

    The graphics, however, are the game's strongest suit. Viggo's Revenge sports the same cartoony characters and environments as the DC version, but they have been a tad improved thanks to cell shading technology.

    The challenges are too weak. The game moves way too slow.

    Max doesn't do anything particularly wrong, it just doesn't do too much that's new.

    While the task of rebuilding the village is fantastically addictive, the repetitive gameplay is a bore.

    Think of it as falling in between "Ridge Racer" and Gran "Turismo." If you are a car fanatic who would rather spend $1,000 on nice rims than pay off a student loan, this might be the racer for you.

    Even if it doesn't offer the most innovative gameplay, you're still guaranteed hours of mayhem-filled fun.

    If you are looking for all-out arcade excitement that has made Midway notorious, you will definitely find it in CART Fury. Unfortunately, the novelty of this high-octane action burns out rather quickly.

    Much like Nell Carter's thighs, the courses are large and in charge.

    Fans of mission-based first-person shooters like "GoldenEye" will be dancing in the streets and signing Greek folk tunes. Yes, Zorba, this game is that good.

    An entertaining, mission-based driver with hilarious commentary and fairly engrossing gameplay. This is definitely a sleeper hit for the aging PlayStation.

    If you liked the first one and are bored its levels, this game is perfect for you. If you never got a chance to play the first one and want a solid trick-based game for the PSX this, too, is a great choice.

    Excellent outlet for novice users and musical geniuses alike.

    There are wonderful individual combos and terrific moves that link each of your three selected characters together in order to defeat the common foe.
