Halo 2

Overall: The missions are great. The Graphics are awesome. The Dolby 5.1 sound is awe inspining. This is an A+ game. First-person shooting at it's best.

Gameplay: Controls are smooth. I do miss the scope on the pistol and the night-vision on the sniper scope. LIVE play is where this game really shines!

Graphics: Graphics are awesome. Really wish they would have included 720p support. The split screen for Widescreen HDTV play stinks. There is no option for top/bottom split screen. You have to go into the XBOX setup and set it to an non-widescreen mode for the top/bottom split. Playing with the screen slpit left/right is like playing with blinders on. Sucks. Graphics alone are a 5.

Audio: Sound is best on a Dolby 5.1 system. You can hear someone come up behind you. It really give you a scense of being in the game.

Suggestions: Need more split screen options. Everything else ROCKS!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup

Overall: Piece of EA junk. The online game is a joke. I waited for a year and spent $50 for this drink coaster? Horrible title. I am a huge NASCAR fan. Could not wait for the online version. I am sad that the release date ever came. What a waste of money. The lobby stinks. Cars jump around on the track. LAG. LAG. LAG. When and IF you do finish a game you get dropped form the session. No return to the lobby, just dropped. You cannot even talk in the lobby. You must "type" in your chat session. This game blows chunks. I hear that the single player is good but who cares? I buy games for their LIVE content. Also, it clearly states that EA has the right to drop online play 30 days after the 2004-2005 season or whenever they feel like it. Too bad I cannot rate this game below a zero.

Gameplay: Multi-player is junk. Dropped games. LAG. LAG. LAG. EA should take notes from Project Gotham 2. It has spoiled me as far as good on-line functionality. It is only 4 player multiplayer. I can see why it is only 4 player. LAG. LAG. LAG. This game is a turd.

EA's servers must be running on a 486 DX/4 with 16 MEG of RAM. It is unplayable. It is unbearable. Also there is not rear-view mirror in 2 palyer mode. No way of looking back to see who you are about to run into. This game bites.

Graphics: Visuals look the same as the past NASCAR titles. The sky looks more realistic. Way to go EA. Another EA title I can aviod next year.

Audio: Sound is good. Thank God for custom soundtracks. Other than custom soundtracks, the sound is nothing to even comment about.

Suggestions: How about a user friendly on line lobby. How about being able to play a game then restart the game without having to re-create the wole !&%$@#* session. How about working out all of the bugs before release date. How about being able to race a multiplayer game without getting dropped or without the LAG.

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 RalliSport Challenge 2

Overall: Wow. I loved the first installment of this series. RC2 is an awesome racing experience. The graphics are superb. The mud. The rain. The car flips and jumps. It is just plain awesome. This is the off road equivalent of Project Gotham 2.

Gameplay: The physics of the game are much improved over the original. You can actually feel the mud and snow affect the car performance. The tracks/courses are really well done. 16 player multiplayer adds some chaos to the equation. It rocks.

Graphics: The grass is green. The mud is realistic. The graphics engine is wonderful. HDTV support at 480p makes the experience all the more real.

Audio: If you do not have Dolby 5.1 capability, do yourself a favor and get it. You can hear the cars behind, beside and in front of you. Custom soundtrack support completes the total sound package.

Suggestions: Add 1080i support for HDTV.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Nascar Thunder 2004

Overall: Good NASCAR series. Nice graphics and gameplay. Awesome NASCAR simulation. NASCAR Thunder 2003 is just as good. No real need to buy the 2004 Thunder because EA has chosen to shun XBOX Live and online users. No Multiplayer online makes this game useless.

Gameplay: Cars look awesome. The gameplay is smoothe as hell. The tracks are very realistic and totally fun to try and master. No Live multiplayer makes this game a flop.

Graphics: Graphics are the best yet. The smoke looks very realistic. The sun shines in your eyes enough to make you squinnt. The cars are nice.

Audio: Sounds like cars crashing and metal smashing. The engine roar could be improved but otherwise the sound is nice.

Suggestions: I will not buy any other EA title until they support online play. I am paying $49.99 for an XBOX title that has less features than the PS2 version. I don't think so. Save your money and buy Thunder 2003 for $19.99. Boycott EA Games until they offer Live support. No Madden Live, No NASCAR Live, no thanks EA.

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 Project Gotham Racing 2

Overall: WOW! I have had the game for a week now and it rocks. The first PRG was fun. I really enjoy the multi-player. Now with PRG2 they have added live support.

Gameplay: Controls are the same as the first PGR. You do have a horn now, which is very cool to blow as you are passing your buddies on the inside. Kudos system is cool, although I wish you could just have access to all of the cars and all of the tracks.

Graphics: Visuals are beautiful. Clouds, birds and even tumbleweeds. Tire smoke, rain, or the landscapes are visually stunning.

Audio: Each car has their own sound. The engine roar is good and the ability for custom soundtracks helps to complete this title.

Suggestions: The Kudos system is cool but we need access to all of the cars and tracks for multiplayer mode.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War

Overall: Nice FPS that seems like a cross between Half-Life and DOOM. Great action and awesome weapons. I love the spooky feel. I think I have been dreaming in German for the last few nights.

Gameplay: Kick-butt action. Loads of hidden areas and treasure. Smoothe-as-hell game play. Dark and creepy environments. Awesome ability to customize each controller button.

Graphics: Graphics are spectacular. Face detail, flame detail, and awesome architecture. Nice landscapes and extras (fields, forrests, snowy mountains, fog, cobwebs, and water).

Audio: Dolby 5.1 at it's best. The sound puts the player right in the action. Doors squeak and creak. Limbs crack under your steps.

Suggestions: Need more maps. An on-line tutorial would be helpful also.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge

Overall: Sweet game. Graphics are cool. The planes are fun to fly and the levels are a challenge thus far. Multiplayer rocks! Overall, a great game.

Gameplay: So far the single player mode is enjoyable. The controls, although they are not adjustable, are easy to pick up. Flying is a breeze. Dogfights galore.

Graphics: Beautiful mountains, canyons, clouds, water, mist, spray and fog. The lightning and stormy skies enhance gameplay. Very nice, although 1080i HDTV support would have been a welcomed addition. The ability is there, why not use it?

Audio: The soundtrack is great. It is almost like a John Williams soundtrack. A custom soundtrack feature would have been nice. Again, the ability is there, why not use it?

Suggestions: Hopefully we will have some killer downloadable planes and levels. The multiplayer is fun but a co-0p campaign option would have been a nice feature. Custom soundtrack and the ability to customize the controls would enhance gameplay also.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Blood Wake

Overall: Good game with challenging story line and gameplay. Multi-player is fun. Bloodwake rocks the beach.

Gameplay: Love the dynamics of the water. Hours of entertainment. The movies between levels are somewhat cheezy.

Graphics: The water looks very realistic. Great graphics overall. The explosions could be better but the graphics overall are awesome.

Audio: Sound is okay but soundtrack support would have been nice. Nice crashing waves sound and Dolby 5.1 is a wonderful addition.

Suggestions: Bloodwake needs co-op multiplayer mode. It would be great going through the levels with a team mate.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Unreal Championship

Overall: This game rocks. The sound is awesome. The AI is worthy. The graphics are UN-REAL!!! Even better if you have a Widescreen HDTV. Many, many hours of replay value.

Gameplay: Loads of game playing scenerios. CTF, DM, DOM, etc.... THe multiplayer if fast and fun. The guns are great. Much faster than HALO.

Graphics: I am playing UNREAL on a 61" Widescreen HDTV and the graghics are unbelievable. The levels are beautiful. The landscapes are unlike any I have seen elsewhere. The characters look awesome. Great lighting and blood.

Audio: Sound is good. Soundtrack option would have been nice. The music keeps pace with the action. Great ambient sound.

Suggestions: Days, months, years of multiplayer action. Please add soundtrack option next time.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Nascar Thunder 2003

Overall: Beautiful graphics, smooth gameplay, soundtrack support, and the ability to unlock #3 Dale Earnhardt. I am a big fan of Heat 2002 over Thunder 2003. The gameplay on Heat was just so much better. That has now changed with Thunder 2003. EASports has finally stepped up to the NASCAR palte.

Gameplay: Much better than Thunder 2002. Nice additions such as soundtrack support and better control/stability. Drafting is awesome. Thunder 2003 added a feature that allows you to see who is behind you and exactly where they are on the track. This feature is essential for blocking. Multiplayer, Lightning Challenges, and Thunder Plates make this a game with awesome replay value.

Graphics: Graphics are awesone. Jets fly in the background. Smoke and glare from the sun hinders your driving at times (just like the real thing). The cars look awesome and most come with additional "skins&

Audio: Thunder 2002 was lacking in the sound department. Thunder 2003 has resolved that problem. Engine sound is awesome and with Dolby 5.1 you can hear the cars and crashed all aound. You can also rock out to your own tunes while racing at over 200 mph.

Suggestions: Additional "views" would be nice for the full racing experience. I loved the "frame" view of Heat 2002. Awesome game.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10
