Overall: The most anticipated game for XBOX owners has lived up to its hype and more. The single player has many interesting twists including playing as the covenant. This is probably the best game for XBOX yet.
Gameplay: The game play is incredable with dozens of gun combinations and new weapons. The unclusion of the sword is an amazing idea as well as the creation of bosses. Not to mention the marines and other friends are worth a crap.
Graphics: The visuals are similar to the original with a few improvements. Shooting birds out of the sky was suprising at best.
Audio: The sound is pretty much the same. You can't take out the original music and it still be Halo.
Suggestions: Improve the load time on Live.
Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Mortal Kombat: Deception
Overall: This game is pretty much the same as Deadly alliance with only a few changes. One of the changes that makes the game much more fun are the interactive levels. Another difference is the Live factor. The Live addition is what makes this game worth anything.
Gameplay: Playing Mortal Kombat on Live is a blast. The only complaint I have is that the servers can be slow. The Konquest mode is in the form of an RPG but is lame at best. You basically wonder around aimlessly and fight a bunch of people. One improvement is the addition of more fatalities. Without Live, this game would not be worth the money.
Graphics: The visuals are the same as Deadly Alliance with some character modification. It isn't the best but it is pretty much what I expected.
Audio: The music is cheezy, but again, the same as Deadly Alliance. I wish they would have allowed for soundtracks at least.
Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing
Overall: Overall...this is a great game. It is very different from all of the other Bond games which was much needed considering that last few games were very lacking.
Gameplay: The gameplay was awsome except for the targeting. It can be very frustrating when you targeting system target a guy that is far away instead of the guy two feet in front of you.
Graphics: This is the very best part of this game. The visuals are sensational! A great inprovement from the last couple of Bond games.
Audio: The sound is only surpassed by the visuals. The computer yell and screams when you shoot them which makes the game that much more fun.
Suggestions: Fix the targeting system.
Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 NHL 2K3
Overall: The reviewers before me have pretty much summed it up. The menus suck but once you are on the ice...you forget all about the menus.
Gameplay: The gameplay itself is amazing with the exception of the menus and the friggin line changing. This game is so much better than EA. With EA any jerkoff with a stick can make a goal. NHL 2K3 makes you work for it.
Graphics: The graphics are par. Nothing spectacular. The camera angle is very anoying. There is no middle camera angle it is either really high or really low.
Audio: The sound is also par. This game didn't fully use the XBOX but it does finally bring a good hockey game to the XBOX.
Suggestions: FIX THE CAMERA ANGLES!!!!!
Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
Overall: This game is an excelent addition to the Mortal Kombat series. I have been looking for a fighting game worth owning that wouldn't get old after an hour of playing. I believe I have foud it.
Gameplay: Mortal Kombat is known for its gore and mass blood, but they have topped themselfs with this game. I have not been able to put it down since I rented it.
Graphics: The graphics are not the best I have ever seen but they are pretty impressive. I just wish they would have made this game for the XBOX only. I still enjoy the story lines and the mass amounts of blood.
Audio: Sound is really nothing special. The music gets a little repeditive but what game doesn't. The voices are very clear however which is the reason I gave this a 4.5.
Suggestions: Make the next one on the XBOX port only!!!!
Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Nascar Thunder 2003
Overall: I have never really been much of a Nascar fan but I love the games...this game is by far one of the best. When you start off in career mode your car sucks and you have to work your way up which makes the game a lot more interesting.
Gameplay: Who doesn't love a good racing game? But with the career mode, the replay value is golden. This game is an absolute blast.
Graphics: The crashes look incredibly real. The parties after you win a race and the ability to do donuts after a win is awsome.
Audio: The engines roaring...the cars crashing...you can't beat Nascar!! I also love the music. The ability to play your own music makes this game even that much better.
Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Elder Scrolls III : Morrowind
Overall: I was scetchy about this game at first because it starts off sooooo slow. However once you get into the game and learn the controls...the game absolutly explodes!!
Gameplay: The gameplay is amazing. There is so much to do that there is no possible way to do it all. Believe me I have tried.
Graphics: The visuals are great. When someone talks to you it actually looks like they are talking. The fighting wasn't as appealing as hoped but still excelent.
Audio: Sound is great. Music is a little cheezzzy and goes on forever but kill the music and the game sounds are good.
Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Halo: Combat Evolved
Overall: Halo is the greatest game I have ever played. I have never played a game that can have 16 people in one map sitting in the same room. I can't say enough about the greatness of this game.
Gameplay: The replay value is incredible because of all the multiplayer. I have beat this game at least 6 times with 6 different people on my team.
Graphics: Visuals are outstanding. This is one of the greatest features in Halo. (The sniper rifle kicks @&&)
Audio: I love how the marines talk to me and scream when I shoot them. The sound of the machine guns are awsome.
Suggestions: HURRY WITH HALO 2!!!!!!!!!!
