Ninja Gaiden

Overall: Great adventure, I loved playing this game. I took a long time to get good at it but the wait was worth it. Everything about this game is excellent.

Gameplay: Not a button masher, you must acquire skills to defeat this game. A bit repetative at times but need to hone your techniques.

Graphics: At first I was annoyed with the camera angle. Why could these idiots not do was Halo et al are using for camera angles. But as time wore on it was fluid to me. Why does everything have to be the same. A little diversity is good. Perhaps there is a better system for visual orientation out there and if we get stuck on the same old stuff we will never know.

Audio: Accurate and effective sound. It did not annoy me in anyway is what I generally grade sound on. usually I have no sound

Suggestions: Another adventure. Keep up the good work.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II

Overall: Its a good game. Purely a hack and slash adventure. I love the co-op mode. However, I am (was) a long time fan of the Baldur Gates PC series. This is not a RPG. KOTOR and Morrowind are much better. I was hoping that with the success of KOTOR that we would see a return to the glory day of BG. This did not happen. In its own right it is a decent game, I just cant give it high rating.

Gameplay: Too Easy. Too Short. Too repetative. However, it does pick up the pace in the extreme mode. I like the unlockable characters.

Graphics: Not much of an increase from BG DA. It is clean, and does not distract. Oeverall it is acceptable.

Audio: Ok. Personally, I have my xbox set up beside a TV, so I generally have no sound on the xbox while I watch a hockey game or other tv show..

Suggestions: Find you roots. Look back to Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale and the rest of the PC games.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Kung Fu Chaos

Overall: I love this game. After falling in love with Halo, I was hard pressed in finding a xbox game that blew me away. Kung Fu Chaos has done just that.

Gameplay: Fun to play alone. Fun to play with others. Fast action. Dialogue that actually makes me laugh. Movie sets are diverse and great to play. The game is not too difficult however attaining a 5 star performance has proven very challenging. I love this game.

Graphics: Awesome. Gritty. Details are perfect. I love the wires during jump sequences. Characters are wonderful.

Audio: Scripts for characters is bang on. Director is very funny. I wih only for more on taunting. The sound track is decent and true to style. Fight sounds are great.

Suggestions: I love the genre and the uniqueness of this game. Perhaps you can take on Bollywood next. Keep up the good work. Keep it original.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Elder Scrolls III : Morrowind

Overall: Love Hate relatationship with this game. At times I think it is the greatest rpg ever. So immense, rich and rewarding to play. Other times I curse the names of the designers of this game for being so lazy. Why so many crashes? Why so many cheats? I loved this game until I could love it no longer. I give it a high rating due to the time and enjoyment I had playing. I hope that in any new ventures they correct the errors.

Gameplay: I love playing this game in first person. I was rapted in the development of the character and the story line. There is so much to do. However as each character advances the more the become the same. Secondly, there are just too many cheats, from mud crab merchant to the attribute enhancing cheats. I guess if I had better self control these would not be a problem, however this game supplies too many opportunities to capitalize on these cheats. And Save often the game crashes way too often. But this game is truely addictive. I would play all night long.

Graphics: At times this is an amazing game to experience and watch. Others it is a disappointment. Spell effects comes to mind.

Audio: Good, spells could be better. perhaps more spoken dialogue rather than the typed choices. Does not deter from game

Suggestions: Please correct the constant crashing. Have no Cheat Codes. Differentiate the Characters. Fighters should always be fighters. Magic Users should always be magic users. etc. I love your world. make It bigger.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 House of the Dead 3

Overall: Very Little. i guess I got the game and the light gun out of arcade envy. I was never any good or rich or ahd enough time to master this game in the arcade. At first I was please with the sound and action but since playing Halo. This game is amatuerish. It took only a day to finish and I have not played it since. I think the only thing good about the game is to increase the chance of seizures.

Gameplay: Not fit for the Xbox. I know its unfair to compare everything to Halo but this is not even in the same universe. Too linear. Too easy. Too boring.

Graphics: Wow Green blood or Red Blood. Hell Doom had better graphics. Lots of flashing lights. I don't know. This should not be a console game.

Audio: Loud, weak dialogue. I think they did a good job with the Shot gun sound. I figure the USmilitary is using this game to extract information from the Al Queda kingpin they recently caught in Pakistan.

Suggestions: The House of Dead is Dead, Time to develop a new franchise. Let this one rest in arcade peace

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 NBA Inside Drive 2003

Overall: I like this game. It is another good multiplayer to add. I can not compare it to another b-ball game be cause it is my first. I see no reason to buy another. I am the same with NHL 2003.

Gameplay: Easy to pick up. The fact that my knowledge of basketball lets me whoop my nephews !&%$@#* at this game tells me there is some realism in its play.

Graphics: Limited to just the players. Being from BC I like to play little stevie nash, with that long and flowing hair. Its not that detailed but on a level with EA's NHL 2003. Crowd was a little disappointing.

Audio: At least the colour coverage is not annoying. Everything seems to sound realistic. Hey its a basketball game.

Suggestions: Keep on building your franchise, just don't expect me to buy new versions.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4

Overall: Very slick, very playable. Most enjoyable. I like the look and the sound track. This is the first of skateboarding game I ever played and It hooked me. tried TH 3 but I think that TH 4 has alot more to offer in the career mode. I you do not own a skater game buy this one.

Gameplay: Easy enough to learn, challenging at times. Please eliminate the cheat codes. I am human and subject to many urges. I seem to have an inability to avoid using cheat codes. free wheelie and be like eric are a death blow to the challenge of the game. The career mode has kept me entertained for many hours the pro challenges still havbe not be finished.

Graphics: Very good. of the quality one would expect from a franchise such as this. I like the movies that come with and are bought and or earned throughout the game

Audio: Sounds are very appropriate and realistic. I really enjoyed the sound track. I love your choice of AC/DC as main song

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding

Overall: A near perfect single player game. Beautiful; graphics, sounds and easy yet challenging game play. The biggest draw back iw the lack of head to head multiplayer play. This game kept me interested for many hours.

Gameplay: Easy yet challenging. The carrer mode was entertaining. The progressiveness of unlock levels leads to appropriate development of skills required.

Graphics: absolutely fantastic. Everyone I have shown this game too, many non gamers are usually breath taken. this transends age barrier.

Audio: I love the sound track. boarding sounds seem realistic. Everything I would expect considering the visual standards.

Suggestions: I hope that Amped 2 has head to head multiplayer play. more terrain and larger runs. keep up the quality looks and sounds.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 NHL 2003

Overall: Great game play, easy to learn fun to play with lots of friends. Great game to share with those who dont game often. Yet Don taylor is horrid. I live in Vancouver and really enjoy his nightly sports program. But his comments during the game are pathetic. So turn down the volume and enjoy this game.

Gameplay: Quick, fun and easy to learn. Good for non-gamers. four man play is the best, we usually play a quick game during intermission of the Canucks Game. I also like the fact that the local EA have made the Canucks a great team to play.

Graphics: Everything look good. Graphics are fluid and very enjoyable. little highlight movies a little too much at time.

Audio: Don Taylor Sucks. Shut up no colour man in the business sounds as dumb as this. You are better than this. The occasional upstairs where norman keeps his mother is okay.

Suggestions: Fire Don Taylor.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Project Gotham Racing

Overall: Good game play, great visuals, and realistic sounds. Good individual play as well as a multiplayer format. I like this game alot.

Gameplay: I like to career mode. Arcade play has kept me occupied for hours. Here is an instance when a cheat code is welcomed. Too much is blocked off and too few cars available. I love the courses and the handling of the cars. the kudos is an interesting version for game play.

Graphics: Looks are great. The Cars ,the venues are all top rate. What else can a guy say to make up a hundr

Audio: Its loud, whiney and lots of crashing. Its darn good. Sound track could be better but i like the "radio" stations idea.

Suggestions: Allow for car customizing.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Shrek

Overall: My niece gave me this gift. I expected to enjoy this game. I tried. My niece tried. it now sits in the back of the pile and is never played. Proof is in the pudding. Rent the game if you have to. Otherwise it is a waste of your money in my opinion.

Gameplay: Honestly, I got bored way too fast. I can not tell you how it ends because I never tried. Kicking and farting is good in the bedroom but tires fast for this game.

Graphics: This is why i thought it would be a good game. The graphics were nice, clean. They are of a high quality.

Audio: Unimpressionable. Quite frankly I do not really remember. I think this speaks volume for my overall attitude towards this game.

Suggestions: A mountaineer will often state they climb a mountain because it was there. Just because someone makes a good movie does not mean we need to make iot into a video game. And if you do make it good

Overall Score: 3.0 / 10 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell

Overall: Top notch Game. A pleasure to paly. Not your shoot em up rollercoaster ride like halo but a great suspenseful thriller

Gameplay: I love it. sneaking around and using you wit and guile and smarts. If I was a cold blooded secret agent I would guess that this would seem realistic.

Graphics: Fantastic. the looks add so much to this game. so much to admire. I really hope that this is a start of many

Audio: Although some of the dialogue is repeatiive I really enjoy the sound effect. Tossing a can to distract a guard just sounds right.

Suggestions: Keep em coming.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Unreal Championship

Overall: I think you need to have two things to really enjoy this game. A good sized tv and xbox live. I have neither. I like the game and I rate it fairly high. but it is rough, not an overly polished game.

Gameplay: I cruised though single play on easy mode, and have run it through on harder levels. I like the team games and rules. The arena are good. but i am disappointed with the weapons. Im not sure if it is there play or the fact that I can not tell the difference between one and another.

Graphics: ROugh. split screen with 4 is trying on a small screen. I think that the maps have decent designs and decent looks to them.

Audio: Loud. comments of bots are rough like the offerall game. They definately could be better. lots of loud noises.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee

Overall: A recent purchase with a platinum hit series. Cheap price I thought what the hay. I find the game enjoyable. Something to play with my niece and nephew. I do think it is a step back from some of the more recent issues I have been playing.

Gameplay: I find some of the game play artificial. I know this sounds funny talking about a fantasy game. I like to play a game and feel natural about what is going on. I like the characters and the story line.

Graphics: Very nice. Visually this game is of high quality. I love the design of the characters and feel of this oddworld.

Audio: I like the sounds in the game. Voices and scripts are well done. Hopping sounds get a little grating at tinmes.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance

Overall: Size does matter. As much as I love this game, the best rpg with multiplayer, I was a little shocked when I reached the finish. yeah there is the gauntlet thing but what I got was a really hard version of what I had already mastered. That being said this is a really enjoyable game. I am a baldur game fanatic for the PC, this console version does not embarrass it self.

Gameplay: I like the game play. especially in multiplayer. I am a little disappointed in the lack of diversity in characters. Things I really like was the quick access to spells. I 3ed rules added to this game.

Graphics: The spells and characters are good. I love that bartender a little too much. Did she get hired for the extreme volleyball team? Its a nice world to explore visually.

Audio: I thought the voice acting was excellent. The sounds were very appropriate and added to the experience.

Suggestions: Make it bigger, add more mini games such as the Gauntlets. Perhaps add some xbox live arena stuff. And definately add more character diversity. Keep up the good work. Perhaps a IWD cross over.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Jet Set Radio Future

Overall: I first got this game when I got my xbax last November. I was quickly not impressed so I focused on my other purchases like halo,amped, pjr, etc. Recently I game JSRF another shot. This is not my game. I'm not sure if it dates me but I just can't handle the music the goofey dancing or the dialogue. I found the game play too simplistic however I must admit I did not go very far. Not my cup of tea

Gameplay: The storyline is to annoying for me. This game techn ically is too simple as compared to Tony Hawk 4 where i can at least do a kick flip on perpose. Te hracing is just not enough for me.

Graphics: The look does not work for me. I guess it is stylistic and arty in a way be not my thing. The dancing characters drive me nuts

Audio: I hate this part the worse, I guess technically It is not bad but I rank the dialogue and script up there with Don Taylor's NHL 2003

Suggestions: I'm not your target audience so who cares what I say

Overall Score: 4.0 / 10 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Overall: I am a huge Harry Potter fan outside the gaming world. I am very much anticipating the arrival of book 5. I have enjoyed both movies, and when I first began to play this game I was very happy to have something to play on the xbox with my neice. I hate this game. mostly because I can not pass the stupid avifor spell test. The camera view ruins this game. I will not buy another EA game because of this disasterous game.

Gameplay: Very,very,very,very fustrating. The controls and the way you view something is reverse than the way I am used to and they don't have a simple control adjustment. Too much writen on this piece of junk game

Graphics: Visually it is beautiful, what I would expect. Nothing wrong with the visuals, except that I can not tell you what the majority of the game looks like, because I can't jump across one gap.

Audio: What I would Expect. I am sorry but i have nightmares with the sounds of the stupid ghosts in the room in which I can't jump across the gap.

Suggestions: Put some thought and effort into your game development you a-holes.

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 Halo: Combat Evolved

Overall: By far the best I have played on the xbox. It was my first purchase and continues to be a must play for me and my friends. I a reason unto itself to purchase xbox.

Gameplay: single play: fast, chalenging with a very interesting story line. of course you eventually reach a level of expertise that one can challenge the game solo on legendary levels. Somehow the game remains fresh. Add this the cooperative play and split screen.

Graphics: The first time through I would often stop and stare rotate my camera aroung to look up to the sky and see the beauty. the covenent look great and the flood are just as good.


Audio: The dialogue of the grunts as simple and repetative as it is still gets a chuckle out of me. Weapons sound realistic and I have a great fondness for melee. That crunching sound is worth the opurchase price.

Suggestions: Look to quake arena for some of the multi player maps. I really like the wizard level due to its quaintness. Many of the other multiplayer map are very large. second, Perhaps you can add the option of adding bots to these levels. Keep up the standards and you will be hard pressed to go wrong.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10
