it has a multi page story showcasing them, havent red it fully yet, but they were dissapointed because madden wont be online, but they said great things about 2k3, and fever too. ill tell u more when i finish reading it.

edit: now that ive read it, here is what i have to say about the three big football games of 03

madden- increased gameplay speed,k new goodies such as expanded football 101 mode and a very deep create a play mode, a new mini camp mode (a sort of trainer thing), but sadly, no online play

fever- biggest changes being polished and online play added. defensive ai is much better, more realistice tackle animations, presentation got an overhaul making it smoother and more realistic, a play editor, xbox communicator support during games on xbox live.

2k3- the most realisic animations of any football game, increased ai, replay and commentry even deeper than before,espn liscense(takes over the games interface), a much better franchise mode then before

i was suprised too! i like morrowind alot, im not sure why it scored so low....

i played crazy taxi 3, it is fun, nice graphics, but i just dont like the game play of the previous ones, they get really repetitive....i havent noticed any substantial new gameplay elements yet, but there was only one level in the demo and all u did was pick up people

If you want to know buy it jade. theres a lot of pages. as for crazy taxi the graphics have almost not improves at all from its predecessors. The only thing changed really is the lighting and the cars look a little better. The cars just appear after u get so close. The game lags like crap. Im really dissapointed. But hey we got a early demo, and now i know not to waste mt money and save my money for dead to rights and other good games.

Same here man. I loved the previous Crazi Taxi games (I only played the 1st one on Deamcast), and based on the demo, this one didn't really seem to offer anything new. The graphics seemed maybe seemed just a bit better, but nothing spectacular. However, the one thing that bugged me most was that the one level they offered was also extremely easy compared to the first level of the the first one.

Street Hoops, on the other hand, actually impressed me more than i was expecting. If you like B-ball games, this one seems be really good, and it has incredible graphics as well.

i thought the demo was really cool. there are alot of neat moves u can do when dribbling by pressing x or y. and if u press x or y when u pass they will to like a behind the back or between the legs pass. its really cool. the game controls like most basket ball games....5 on 5 play, but there is 1 on 1 play in the real version i hear. also, there is rap music during the game from dmx and ludacris and some other rappers. the opening vidoe is awesome, with all these real life trick moves.


tamim, the only demo they clearly stated was sega gt 2002, but they say there will be other cool demos and jaw dropping movies!


they say there are previews for dave mirra xxx, mortal kombat, and nija gaidien, the big stories will be the next halo and xbox live. reviews will be buffy and legends of wrestling
