Outlaw Golf

Overall: Outlaw Golf is by far the best golf game with respect to game mechanics available in the market today. It has a blatantly unique style, sense of humor (for those of us who are not golf nuts and do not like Golden Tee) and plenty of unlockables to keep you coming back.

Gameplay: Like I mentioned in the overall description, the game mechanics of Outlaw Golf are well thought out and, with minor irritations from the controls of the adjustable camera, incredibly easy to use. The game comes with plenty of tutorials to get you through how to play, so the learning curve isn't too bad.

Graphics: The visuals of Outlaw Golf are for the most part nicely done. It makes excellent use of the rendering capabilities of Xbox, especially considering that this is a golf game. There are definite good textures. My only gripe might me that at times, the branches of trees can be thoroughly misleading.

Audio: Each golfer has his/her own personality and voice. The voice acting is great and the sound effects are great. You can feel the crack off the tee. Unfortunately the announcer gets repetitive and annoying after a short while--but you can turn him off.

Suggestions: What happened with Outlaw Volleyball? I almost purchased it (before I rented it instead) on the merits of Outlaw Golf and was thoroughly disappointed with how the license carried over into a very mediocre game.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Jet Set Radio Future

Overall: JSRF is a unique title and an expanded dive into the universe of the original Dreamcast version. The graphics shine and the music is decent. However the gameplay itself, while it is fun for the most part, can become a bit repetitive and annoying.

Gameplay: The gameplay is fairly arcade standard, straight-forward if you read the manual, but not as original as original nor unique as the Dreamcast game.

Graphics: The game is an excellent example of how cool cell-shading can be. It certainly has its own unique playful visual style.

Audio: The sounds are repetitive, much like the original, with little variation, although in quality it is decent.

Suggestions: I would have kept what was familiar from the original, with respect to controls.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4

Overall: Like many others who have reviewed this game before me, I agree that it tried to do too much and broke too much away from the THPS3 formula which worked just fine. All in all, it's an enjoyable, if frustrating, gaming experience. The environments are expanded and the best feature is the suspension of the 2 minute time limit.

Gameplay: Not too much is new in the gameplay. There are certainly more crazy tricks to try out that you can both learn through goals and figure out for yourselves. These can certainly look cool, but can be quite hard to do. I'm glad that the guys at Neversoft tried to make this game harder than THPS3, but it's a double-edged sword and a steep learning curve. There are some goals that you will put off forever because they either a) don't make sense or b) will require patience, creative problem solving and a lot of focus.

Graphics: While you get a lot more, visually, in the game, the graphics do not appear as smooth as THPS3. More sharp edges to the characters' features and outlines. Everything seems to hold a sharp edge. The graphics aren't bad, not by a long shot, but they aren't my cup of tea.

Audio: The sound is pretty good for the most part. I am glad for the different music, which to me is a step up from the limited and highly repetitive music of THPS3. And, of course, you can make use of custom soundtracks which is always a good thing for those of us who love Xbox.

Suggestions: You tried to do too much. I applaud your efforts, but they came out somewhat disappointing in the execution. It lacks the simple joy of loading THPS3 and just shredding it up for a few minutes each day.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Halo: Combat Evolved

Overall: I remember when I first got my Xbox through EB Games. The excitement of setting it up and the ensuing debate of just which game to play first. I settled on Halo and sat back in wonderment (even playing on my cheezy old 13" tv).

This game has doubtlessly changed the way combat games (especially with intriguing storylines) will be made for the next 5-10 years. The originality factor is high, if a bit inspired by its predecessors Half-Life and even Doom--but it pays sweet homage.

Its system of controls has become the standard of almost every FPS on the Xbox since its release.

Gameplay: For the first time player, the controls take a little while to get used to, however they are intuitive and are adjustable for the most comfortable gaming experience.

You have the options of piloting all sorts of vehicles in concert with the storyline, which is arduous but has a great payoff.

Graphics: The visuals of Halo, like so much of the rest of the game's aspects, have set the standard level of expectations from us gamers. Some may find them slightly less than perfect, but to me they made a totally immersive gaming experience.

Audio: The sound of Halo is in depth and varies in style and mood as you progress through different areas and situations. All in all, the soundtrack itself is excellent, as well as the foley/sound effects. The voice acting is quite good.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Project Gotham Racing

Overall: Project Gotham Racing, along with Halo, was a real treat when the Xbox first came out. The ability to use custom soundtracks delivered on the initial promises of the Xbox. The graphics are still fairly tight, the sound excellent, and the gameplay intuitive and addictive. Right now you can pick this game up for cheap, so it's a great buy for the money.

Gameplay: Overall the controls are very arcade like and easy to use, working well with the traditional controller. Still timed games can make the addictive gameplayer edgy with the randomness of the soundtracks. Unlocking cars and being able to manipulate their look is excellent.

Graphics: Initially I was most impressed with graphics. A visual feast that I enjoyed far more than Grand Turismo 3 on my friend's PS2. With the release of Gotham 2, however, we can see how things improve over time.

Audio: The sound for the most part was terrific. Engine noises to music, everything is quite satisfactory.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10
