Colin McRae Rally 2005

Overall: I was weary of buying a racing game where you don't actually race at the same time as others on the track, but I've heard good things about this series so I took a chance. I'm so glad I did. This is one of my all-time favorite racing games.

Gameplay: The controls are great. The cars can be fine-tuned before a race to suit the particular track and weather conditions. Repairs to the car can also be made between races.

It is online enabled. You can race against others online and it also supports downloadable content. Their are several modes of play, including an extensive career mode where you work your way up thru the ranks of the rally circuit. Very addictive.

The difficulty may put off some, but gamers with skill or patience will be rewarded with a great racing experience.

Graphics: The graphics are very impressive. The scenery alone is breathtaking. The cars look photo-realistic and take damage as they should. Smaller impacts cause minor damage and more violent impacts cause more severe damage.

Audio: The music is unobtrusive techno during the menus. All the cars sound unique and authentic. You have a guide who rides with you and proves to be very valuable since he helps you navigate the track by describing upcoming turns. He talks alot during the races, but amazingly never gets annoying.

Suggestions: Custom soundtracks are rarely a bad thing on a racing game, even if it is only pre and post race, and you can't have too many cars and tracks. Overall an A+ title.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge

Overall: An arcade-style flight game. It's the closest game action-wise to the Gamecube's excellent Rogue Squadron 2 that I have played on XBOX.

Gameplay: The controls are as pick-up-and-play as you can get. The responsiveness of the controls vary somewhat depending on what plane you pick, but that's intentional. Overall, solid controls.

Graphics: The graphics for this type of game are very nice. Nothing that I haven't seen before, but better than the simuliar looking Blood Wake.

Audio: There is no custom soundtrack option. Which is a shame because the music is repetitive and bland. The guns and explosions are average. This is the games weakest aspect.

Suggestions: Allow custom soundtracks and have a multiplayer campaign mode.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Guilty Gear X2 Reload

Overall: A fast-paced, 2-d arcade fighting game. Has some very bizarre characters and some really inventive moves.

Gameplay: The controls are quick and responsive, which they should be in a fighting game. Also, the more powerful the move, the higher the difficulty of pulling it off.

Graphics: There is nothing here that is going to blow most of today's gamers away. However this is the best looking 2-d fighter I've ever played. Smooth animations and nicely detailed backgrounds.

Audio: There is no custom soundtrack option. The music isn't annoying, but it isn't great either. Power chords and heavy beats, it fits the game nicely.

Suggestions: Add custom soundtracks, and come up with more characters. There can never be too many.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Serious Sam

Overall: All fans of intense first person shooting action have no excuse not to own this game. After playing this game for several hours it will literally haunt you in your dreams.

Gameplay: The controls are tight and easy to learn. The action in this game is like no other. Fatigue sets in after the non-stop adrenaline rush of playing this game for a while. You'll know what I mean after fighting 3 dozen WereBulls at the same time in a closed arena. Multiplayer co-op is worth the price alone.

Graphics: The graphics are bright and colorful, which is nice for a change on an FPS. The levels are huge and so are some of the bosses.

Audio: The sounds are all passible. Nothing to write home about. It would be nice if Sam would make more of those remarks he says from time to time.

Suggestions: Make the levels more varied. Make sure the console sequal is just as long as this one. 36 levels! Bravo.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Project Gotham Racing

Overall: I've owned this game for about 9 months now. Yes I've bought and played many others in that time too, but I never get sick of this game. There's always something to accomplish. However, the perfection required to pull off some manuevers may turn some people off, but not me.

Gameplay: After playing Driver and Driver 2 for the Playstation, I never thought I'd like a non-mission based racing game again. Project Gotham has proved me wrong. The controls are top-notch. Best racing game ever.

Graphics: The graphics of the cars is amazing, and you can actually do damage to them! This may sound like a given, but it's incredible how many driving games these days don't show damage to the cars which takes away a lot of the realism for me. The only thing visually that could use a little polishing in this game are some of the buildings in the cities, but they're still pretty good.

Audio: In all my years of playing video games I have never heard a better soundtrack to one than this. Granted, actual songs in a game is a relatively new thing, but this game's music rocks!

Suggestions: Have more cars to unlock and work on some of the buildings graphics, other than that, a superb game.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Rocky

Overall: If you like boxing games you'll love this. If you like Rocky you'll love this. The best boxing game before this was Punch-Out! for the NES. It has finally been dethroned. You did it Rock!

Gameplay: The controls are very easy to master. It may take some time to learn some of the more devastating combos and get all perfects in the training excercises, but it's worth it. Very nice.

Graphics: The character models are very simuliar to their real-life counterparts. Damage to the fighters faces after a couple of tough rounds can be brutal. This is a good thing. This game has the most realistic looking crowds I've ever seen in any sports title by far.

Audio: With the original Rocky score and actual sound bites from the movie, how can you go wrong. Punches sound solid, too.

Suggestions: Do not ruin the legacy this title will leave by cashing in and making a sequel. I'm sure it will sell well, but let this be the game all other boxing games are compared to and maybe it will be remembered in 13 years like Punch-Out!

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Superman: The Man of Steel

Overall: The most appealing thing about this game is the cover art on the box. It should be called Superman:The Man of Sh*t.

Gameplay: The controls in this game are terrible. The action is unoriginal and repetetive. There is no interaction whatsoever with the enviroment around you.

Graphics: The best looking thing about this game is the way Superman's cape flaps around when he moves. I'm serious.

Audio: The score is forgetable. The voice acting is corny. However if you want to you can burn your own soundtrack so you can feel like you somehow contributed to this god-awful game.

Suggestions: Dear god, do not do what I did and waste your hard-earned money on this title. If you don't believe me at least rent it first! I turned around three days later and sold it at the mall for half of what I paid.

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10
