Madden NFL 2005

Overall: Anyone who is not in Australia who reads this review, you should feel very privilaged knowing that instead of buying Madden 2005 you an go and buy ESPN football 2K5, I've followed Madden over the years and it is still a very good game, but after ESPN football was released in Australia last, there is really no proper way to go back to Madden and not be saying throughout the game, dodgy, ESPN looked so much better, or they couldn't have made that throw in ESPN. Madden falls way short of the best football series available in ESPN football.

But just remember it's still football!!!!!

Gameplay: You have to love the hit stick, except the only time in seems to increase your chance of making your opponent fumble is in training camp against your own teammates!!! Allthough it's still great just to line up somebody and let them have it. The passing and blocking in this game are terrible. Throws made to players like Randy Moss who are one on one with a crappy safety are not completed but when you are against a team with a bad offense with no QB or WR's, catches are made with Patrick Surtain, Sammy Knight and Sam Madison all covering that player at the one time. The run blocking is really so bad you just have to see it for yourself, the best T in the league Jon Ogden will be ran around by a DE that you have made with no stats and break up your run. Luckily the pass protection is quite good, but is at times totally ridiculous.

Graphics: I must seem like I'm going on and on about ESPN football compared to Madden but in ESPN you can go a randon fantasy draft team with out knowing any of the players, and you can go to a replay and name all of the players just by looking at their faces. In Madden they can't even get the face of the co-MVP's from last year in Peyton Manning and Steve McNair's faces right. And the bodies of the players, they look like they've all been on a diet with nothing but straight fat and have just got out of giant bowling ball buffing machines.

Audio: The music is decent, the bumps re decent but there is commentating on this game from back on Madden 2003. It's of course John Madden and Al Michaels doing the commentary and it's very annoying to hear them say things like, number 7. when talking about Michael Vick and always having to go to instant replay just to find out who made that tackle.


Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 ESPN NFL Football 2K4

Overall: Basic NFL game but easily the best one that has ever been made, even if you didn't like the previous ones you'll love this game and never stop playing it.

Gameplay: Fantastic gameplay. Tons to do with normal matches, that can have the starting rosters scrambled so you end up with people from all the teams in the league, fantasy draft games in which you get to pick your QB, HB, FB/WR, WR, WR, TE, K and defence.
There is also franchise mode in which you can do a fantasy draft, or even simulate your team and go with what you are given, there is the new feature of 1st person football that works well on offense but on defense has alot to be fixed. In the franchise mode there is even end of year awards, trading blocks, scouting reports for the draft including the workouts and combine, and excellent free-agents system and you can see of if any of your players have made the pro-bowl (allthough it is dissapointing that you can't play in it) It has fantastic controls, with great, extremely realistic passing, where if you make a mistake, it'll be picked off straight away. The running game is excellent but with some easy blocks being missed, the excellent power moves like the stiff-arm and shoulder charge makes sure you are ready for anything and making you think whether you should charge up for a power move or use speed to get away.

Graphics: The best looking game on the Xbox (doesn't matter what anyone else says) you can get a random team and without knowing who is on your team you can play and got replay and go around the ground just looking at peoples faces, you will be able to work out who is who for nearly every player in the game. The crowd also looks good, but too bad it is the same people over and over going for different teams. The grounds are top notch and all the teams uniforms are great, it's also great that you can use alternate strips.

Audio: Great sound with the ability to have songs off your Xbox hard-drive playing while in menus, the commentating is the best you will ever hear in a game (except for maybe the next one), just for fun get your team into the redzone then give it to your HB and have him run the other way and listen to the commentating (classic). Crowd noise is good, but they could be alot lowder. Special crowd noise for particular players would be great to see(hear), how good would it be if the Eagles were playing the 49ers in SF, and whenever TO caught a ball everyone would boo?

Suggestions: Make another billion. Make the crowd louder, some minicamp drills like in Madden would be good, it would also be good if in a franchise you could take your team and go train with them to improve their stats.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Minority Report: Everybody Runs

Overall: Absolute crap, this game is horrible, I thought it would be allright but it's just crap. Horrible blurring, dodgy combat and stupid team mates.

Gameplay: When you shoot your main gun it blurs the whole screen, when you are fighting the combos are crap, your team mates are stupid, the only good part is the poorly controlled jetpack.

Graphics: Looks horrible, blurry, no detail, scratcy looking, totally crap.

Audio: Sound? the game is so crap you don't even notice the sound. They talk? The guns make noise, nothing special.

Suggestions: Make a half decent game.

Overall Score: 3.0 / 10 Blinx: The Time Sweeper

Overall: What an awesome game, I'm not the biggest fan of platform games, but this was totally awesome, very addictive. Time manipulation rules!

Gameplay: Great control, lots of replay value, you can buy lots of things, funny monsters, but the camera is a bit dodgy. Love controlling time.

Graphics: Looks great, I love the look of Blinx's fur and the face he makes when he runs away from the time monsters. Great looking water and awesome twisted buildings.

Audio: Great sound, totally frantic, nice and fast makes you hurry up, keeps you right in the game. Highly addictive.

Suggestions: Keep it up, bring out a 2nd, make it a little less frustrating.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer

Overall: Great game, they finally got a surfing game right, great fun, lots of tricks and THPS contols. Lots of great looking levels.

Gameplay: Great control, tons of courses, lots of boarders and cool cheat ones. Lots of great looking moves. Tons of fun.

Graphics: Looks awesome, all the beaches and waves look great, the boarders and tricks are done very well. I love the look of the water.

Audio: Really needed a custom-soundtrack, most of the songs were really boring some of them were allright though.

Suggestions: Great game, custom-soundtrack.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon

Overall: I've been wanting to play this game for quite a long time, and I was pretty dissapointed, it looks and sounds pretty good, but some of the controls are a bit dodgy. Your team-mates don't do anything unless your being shot. The worst part is wandering around bored out of your brain untill someone kills you.

Gameplay: Control problems, nothing too serious, but they don't seem to match the controller. Your team-mates are sheep who just follow you around and then pick off all the bad-guys before you can shoot one. Very boring journey unless there's bad-guys surrounding you.

Graphics: Looks pretty good, even after alot of people have told me that there not very good, not as good as smooth as they could have been, but they do the job, the sniper guys look absolutely awesome. There's alot of great detail in the weapons.

Audio: I like the loading music, it gets you in the mood to go and hunt some bad guys, the only bad part aboot the sound is that there needs to be more of it. The gun noises are great.

Suggestions: More excitement, smoother gameplay. More than 2 players.

Overall Score: 4.0 / 10 Sega GT 2002

Overall: Quite a good game that sounds really godd and looks pretty decent. If you like changing parts of cars to make them better, to go faster and to make them look better, this game is for you, I loved it how there were so many cars and tracks to use and to race on. The cronicle mode is really good for fans of older cars.

Gameplay: Tons to do with lots of cars and different modes to keep you busy for a very long time, the only beef I have with the gameplay is the damage system isn't as good as other racing games, it is very hard to win and get enough money to buy a half-decent car, and sometimes when I was racing an automatic car the gears would get stuck switching between 1 and 2, and you couldn't stop them from doing it.

Graphics: Quite a nice looking game, not really pushing anything but they do the job, it would have been better if when you started going really fast the screen started to blur or something like that, because you didn't feel as though you were going very fast.

Audio: Everything is in place here, a custom soundtrack always does the job, the car noises are great and all fit in to place.

Suggestions: Make it look a bit better, make it faster and a bit easier. With a better racing experience.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Jet Set Radio Future

Overall: What an awesome game, one of the best looking games ever and without a doubt it's the most stylish game ever made, lots to do with a great story mode and an awesome multiplaer mixed with great control, this is an awesome game.

Gameplay: Great control with an awesome story mode, great multiplayer, nice music and great visuals. The grinding in this game is great with the amount of combos you can make out of it.

Graphics: Brilliant, stunning, totally awesome, thats a few of the words that describe this game. The sparks when you grind are great great, the character animations are brilliant and the levels are nothing short of stunning. A+++++

Audio: Totally awesome, some really nice songs, the voices sound great, especially the DJ guys voice, acustom soundtrack would have been nice though.

Suggestions: Keep it up.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Mad Dash Racing

Overall: Mad Dash Racing- Just enough MAD, Way too much DASH and not enough RACING, it's a nice idea for a game, it's pretty cutesie poo, aimed at little kids, far to repetative and boring.

Gameplay: The control all seems in place but far too cute and repetative, not enough to do and not enough variation, you'll end up playin it with your eyes closed.

Graphics: Looks allright, but not what you would expect on xbox, but its all little kid looking, so I guess its allright seeing it fits in

Audio: boringggggg..... I ended up turning a cd on in the background to keep me awake

Overall Score: 4.0 / 10 Elder Scrolls III : Morrowind

Overall: WHat an awesome game, I didn't really like RPG games until now, this game is awesome, so much to do, great adventure with tons of detail, awesome characters with lots of great clothing, armour, weapons and accesories to get.

Gameplay: Great control, tons of things to collect, brilliant levels with tons of design, so much to do. This game could keep you going for as long as you want it to. Lots of stat building and training to do, hopefully in the 2nd the combat will be better, i.e more realistic.

Graphics: Great looking, with the best effects for a long time, the rain and water look great, the detail on the characters is awesome too. The only bad part is that when other characters are far away from you, they walk funny.

Audio: Quite boring, but that is the way it is supposed to be, the music matches the game brilliantly, and the voices of the characters is awesome.

Suggestions: Make it faster to travel and fix the combat.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

Overall: Not much of an improvement on the PC versions, looks a bit better but doesn't add anything over the originals. Needs alot more speed.

Gameplay: Control is quite nice, could have been a bit better, needs more speed, feels like your going really slow. Lots of modes to explore.

Graphics: Looks pretty good, but it's the same in every other NFS game so far, they all look great, not on the level of PGR, but there pretty !&%$@#* good.

Audio: Needs custom soundtrack, pretty boring sound, the cars and sirens sound pretty nice.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon

Overall: This game looked as though it could have chalenged DOA 3 for the title of best fighting game on the Xbox, but unfortunately, it has turned into one of the worst games on the Xbox. This game is lacking in every way. There is only one character and if the great man was alive today he could kick the crap out of the makers of this game. There is no multiplayer. The graphics are pitiful and the sound is boring. There is 2 things you can do in Brice Lee. There is practice mode, where you practice moves, unfortunately there is not alot of these. And there is story mode, which invloves you running around beating up loads of bad guys until you advance to the next level.

Gameplay: This game was fun for the first 2 minutes, until you reealize that it is boring, repetative and there are barely any moves or combos. The controls work but there is not nearly enough to keep you interested, in between levels there is a shop to buy more moves and lives but this is not nearly enough, to make you want to keep playing.

Graphics: This must be the worst looking game ever, the animation is slow and jerky, the levels and level design is dreadful, this becomes apparent in the jungle level. Even the opening movie for the game looks horrible, this belongs back on the Sega Megadrive.

Audio: Boring, lots of strange sounding fighting noises, the music all over is crap and since it is such a horrible game this does not help, but it cant hurt something that is this dreadful.

Suggestions: I wish Bruce Lee was alive today so he put his foot up your "you know w

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 Street Hoops

Overall: I don't really like basketball but this is a great game, tons to do and some awesome moves. The passing is a bit dodgy at times but it's not a major problem. Most people will like this game even people like me who don't like basketball. Anyone who likes basketball will love this game.

Gameplay: Tons to do, great career mode that will kee you going for ages. Tons of great costumes to get as well. Lots of teams to play with.

Graphics: Doesn't look all that good but it does the job, but this is XBox- it should look awesome.

Audio: Great songs oncluding DMX, which makes me give the sound a 5 out of 5.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 The Sims

Overall: I'm pretty sure everyone knows what the Sims is from the PC version, this is just the same thing but with some new options. I don't think it is all that good a game, partly because it is pretty much the same as the pc version and there is nothing really all that special added to the Xbox version.

Gameplay: Exactly the same as the PC version, you do jobs and talk to people. It gets pretty boring and annoying after a while especially that the fast forward has to be held in for pretty much the whole day and it isn't fast enough.

Graphics: Looks just like the PC version but there is a fair bit happening on the screen, but it's isn't anything really good.

Audio: very annoying sound, the characters voices sound like crap and the music is so boring that ya have to put a cd on in the background considering there is no custom soundtrack.

Suggestions: Fix all the little annoyances.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 Apex

Overall: This is a great racing game, but it isn't helped by the long list of annoyances. The main selling point for this game was the fact that you were meant to design your own cars. But you don't, you just get given a few blueprints and are told to pick a car. The racing side of this game is great, no slowdown, fast, fluid action. The graphics are brilliant and the sound is absoulutely pathetic, this is a great game but there are too many faults. PGR keeps its title as best racer on the Xbox.

Gameplay: Great conrol over the cars. There are plenty of cars but the good cars have to be unlocked, most of the one's you get at the start are pretty crap. There are a ton of courses and they are all great. One of the worst parts of the game is that it has great damage effects but if you total the car against a fence, you still go at exactly the same speed and your car still goes perfectly straight, what's going on there? Dream mode is great fun except for the face that you have no say in what the car is going to look like except for the colour. The multiplayer is great fun.

Graphics: Brilliant graphics, the best looking racer on the Xbox. The lighting is awesome, the tracks ALL look great and the cars are wonderful. The replays are especially great, the corwd looks great and you can see a long way in front of you. Lots of different camera angles, I hate racers with only 1 or 2 camera angles. You have to have a good eye to find a falut in this games graphics.

Audio: What the hell went wrong here? The sound in this game is horrible. The engines sound great, but when you crash, where's the noise? After you crash, most of the time part of the car ends up dragging along the ground making sparks, but theres no scrapping noise. The custom-soundtrack is horrible, you can only have one song list on at a time and it only plays one song from the list that you DON'T get to choose for the whole race no matter how long the race is.

Suggestions: Xbox would be nice as well as a system-link. Fix the custom-soundtrack. Designing your own car would be sweeeeeeet! Needs more options. Much better sound needed.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Turok: Evolution

Overall: Great game, a bit repetative, but it's what you would expect, it's pretty much go around killing dinosaurs until your finished the level then move onto the next one and do exactly the same thing, it's good that there is a few levels where you get to fly, while shooting down dinosaurs.

Gameplay: Good controls with lots of nice weapons and fair bit to do, nice levels, the multiplayer and sinlge player mode are pretty good, it would be nice to have a 2 player co-op career mode.

Graphics: Nice looking dinosaurs and levels, the weapons and players look nice, some of the surroundings could use a bit of fixing.

Audio: Nice sounding, could use some better music, the dinosaurs sound allright and the guns sound pretty goood.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Burnout

Overall: I saw a demo movie of this game showing some of the crashes in it and decided I had to play it. After playing it I found out that the demo movie showing tons of crashes was pretty much the whole game, blowing up your car by crashing into other vehicles and walls was pretty much the whole game, this game also has quite a nice racing feature as well, this game provides alot of fun in multiplayer and some chuckles in single player mode, but after playing it for a while it wears a bit thin, the turbo booster saves this game from becoming bor in five minutes adding another level of madness.

Gameplay: Brilliant multiplayer, if both of the people playing have played it alot it wears quite thin, that's where the racing feature of the game kicks in and helps out. This game has got very good handling with an excellent turbo boost and lots of great slides, there is alot to unlock to keep you interested in the single player mode, so if you love fiddling around with your cars and looking after them this game isn't for you, if you want a quick bash where you can desroy lots of purdy looking vehicles, this game if for you.

Graphics: Looks quite nice, not on the level of PGR, but it has better control than PGR, the tracks look nice, and all the vehicles look pretty good too. The best part about the graphics is the crashes, they look brilliant but you have to keep coming up with different types of crashes or they all look pretty much the same after a while.

Audio: This was the most dissapointing part of this game, here is a demolition derby style racer, and it doesn't have a custom soundtrack. That's just crazy, the cars sound nice and the crashing noises are great, but it really needs a custom soundtrack, the music is quite boring in this game. Definately needs improving.

Suggestions: CUSTOM SOUNDTRACK!!!!!

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Matt Hoffman Pro BMX 2

Overall: Not that good a game, needs more attention to detail and the trick pulling needs to be fixed. Good fun in multiplayer. The carrer mode is a bit dumb.

Gameplay: Control needs fixing as do all BMX games, more to do and a better level progresion would be nice.

Graphics: Looks allright, not the best, but not the worst. the bikers, bikes and levels look pretty good, the tricks could have been better.

Audio: Great music, as you expect with all extreme sports games. Some nice songs.

Overall Score: 5.0 / 10 Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

Overall: An allright game, nothing special, would have been better if it was more like Splinter Cell, it wasn't really stealth enough, you could just run around shooting anything that moves, buy Splinter Cell instead.

Gameplay: Allright gameplay, the main characters look doesn't really fit in with the stealth part of the game, needs more advanced weaponds like in Splinter Cell. Sometimes frustrating.

Graphics: Looks O.K, nothing special, looks more like a GameCube or PS2 game, not good enough compared to other XBox games, needs too be alot smoother.

Audio: Sound suits what the game was supposed to be like, but in the end it doesn't match the gameplay, beacuse it isn't stealth and scary enough to match it.

Suggestions: Make it like Splinter Cell and get a new main character.

Overall Score: 6.0 / 10 Dead or Alive 3

Overall: Pretty good fighter, I don't think it's as good as every says it is. Nice controls and lots of combos to learn and master, lots of arenas and fighter.

Gameplay: Lots to do, multiplayer was good, there was something not right with the tagging in tag mode, good story mode that all fitted into place, and the movies were awesome.

Graphics: Looked great, if you want to see how good a game can look just have a look at this and the movies that come with it.

Audio: Good fighting game music, the way they all talked in Japanese was annoying and the puching and effects sounded great. But the different language, even though it haad subtitles, pretty much wrecked the immersion.

Suggestions: Keep it up, make them talk English, get the tagging right.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Blade 2

Overall: Allright game, I like games where you can cut stuff up and shoot people, gore filled games, this had lots of that but there were alot of things that made this game no where near as good as it could have been.

Gameplay: Controls were strange, but i loved how the right joystick was used to fight more enemys at once, but that led to camera problems, not that much to do considering it was pretty much story mode only, could have used more weapons and multiplayer story mode.

Graphics: Looked a bit dodgy, but you expect that when you see it's on the PS2 as well, the graphics were pretty good, but they could have been way better.

Audio: Sounded pretty good, it was good that Wesley Snipes actually used his voice in the game, good have used some of the music in Hunter:The Reckoning.

Suggestions: You should be able to use the sword whenever you want and there should be multiplayer and more to do.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Rocky

Overall: Great game, iv'e waited ages for a good boxing game, and this is great, your opponent doesn't !&%$@#* foot around all the time, lots of moves and combos to learn and a great career mode.

Gameplay: Great fun, tons of combos and special punches, tons to do in training mode and great multiplayer.

Graphics: Looks great, especially when you see the boxers faces after they've taken a beating, they look great, the stadiums and movies are awesome.

Audio: Who doesn't like the ROCKY theme?
With it and the crowd and lots of punching noises it sounds great and makes you want to keep going.

Suggestions: Great game, keep it up, if you bring out a 2nd, don't disgrace the ROCKY name.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 UFC: Tapout

Overall: I love fighting games, and I'm a huge wrestling fan, and with this being the only other wrestling game apart from legends of wrestling available before WWE:RAW came out, I just had to play and I wasn't dissapointed, it is totally awesome.

Gameplay: Great controls that are easy to get used to, easy free flowing action, but one player mode is a bit repetative with not much variation, but you will never get sick of multiplayer.

Graphics: Looks awesome, the fighters, announcer and the referee look great, the octogon and cage look great, so does the crowd.

Audio: Great fighting sounds, punches kicks and bone cracking sounds great, so does the announcer and crowd.

Suggestions: Keep it up, training modes would be good, more variation, mini games/fight.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding

Overall: Great game with tons of tricks, runs, boarders, unlockable and superb control, this game is a must for anyone whole likes snowboarding.
Best snowboarding game ever!

Gameplay: Great control with tons to do, and with multiplayer you will probably never get sick of this + it can get quite challenging.

Graphics: looks great, great looking courses with great trick animation and great looking boarders.

Audio: Custom soundtrack and lots of songs allready on the game, plus lots of songs allready on there.

Suggestions: Keep it up!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 TimeSplitters 2

Overall: Quite a good game, the best multiplayer shooter since the 2 Bond games on the N64, tons to do, The 1 player story mode is a bit bare, but the multiplayer makes up for it.

Gameplay: Tons to keep ya going in Arcade and Challenge modes but the horrible control takes a long time to get used to and is still really crap after ya do get used to it.

Graphics: Looks pretty good, but a bit simple, it looks a bit too cartoonie, but it's not all bad, allthough not a very strong part in the game.

Audio: The sound matches the surroundings beutifully, none of the music is out of place, but a custom-soundtrack would be good in multiplayer.

Suggestions: Better controls, and a less repetative Story mode.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Fifa World Cup 2002

Overall: Great soccer game, but no where near enough to do, exhibition or world cup, 2 easy to score goals and it's very easy but it looks and sounds great.

Gameplay: Great controls and fun to play, but no where near enough to do. Good multiplayer.

Graphics: Looks brilliant, you can tell who each player is, just from a quick look at them, stadiums and fireworks look great.

Audio: Sounds good, it's soccer, all it needs is the crowd and commentators, nothing special.

Suggestions: Just remake the N64's ISS 98' and update it, make it look better and have real names and you've got the perfect soccer game.

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10 Hunter: The Reckoning

Overall: Sweet game, who doesn't like running around at night shooting, stabbing and chopping up zombie, giant disgusting monser things and rats?

Gameplay: Fun to play, needs more weapons, some bosses are just pathetic, but it's fun, can be repetative though.

Graphics: Looks great, awesome looking blood effects and the fire at the start is pretty cool, overall it looks great.

Audio: SOunds pretty good, it all fits in with the scary surroundings.

Suggestions: not really, more gore and weapons.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Rallisport Challenge

Overall: Great looking, looks absolutely brilliant, I was dying to play this game for a pretty long time and I wasn't dissapointed, except for the handling, but you get that in all rally games.

Gameplay: Lots to do, lots of cars and unlockables, tons of tracks and alot to keep you going for a fairly long time, all good except for the handling (sometimes.)

Graphics: How good does this game look? seriously this one of the best looking games ever and definately the best looking racer ever.

Audio: Sounded great, nice tunes and great carsounds.

Suggestions: Keep it up.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Serious Sam

Overall: Looked like this game would be alot of fun, and I wasn't very dissapointed, as soon as I started playing it I felt like I was playing a mixture of Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein.

Gameplay: Yeah, great control, totally frantic and lots of fun to play, only bad part was you had to kill a certain amount of "bad guys" before you could hove on, and it was very simplistic.

Graphics: Looked fun and pretty good in a dodgy kind of way, it looked pretty old and fighting off tons of "bad guys" I think it would have been a bit better if they tried to make it a bit scarier.

Audio: Sounded goo, nice gun effects and nice walking sounds. Would have been good with some heavy rock in the background.

Suggestions: Keep it up, better graphics, more free gameplay.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003

Overall: I've been waiting for this and Outlaw Golf for quite a long time now, and I was extremely dissapointed with Outlaw Golf so I was absoulutely dying to play this game and I'm not at all dissapointed.

Gameplay: Great gameplay which kicks the crap out of Outlaw Golf, great gameplay and control, hugely realistic, absolutely brilliant.

Graphics: Looke great, the courses look great but some times the faces look a bit weird, best looking golf game for a long time.

Audio: Great songs (especially because I'm a huge Silverchair and Saliva fan) awesome sound effects and great commentators.

Suggestions: Keep it up, custom soundtrack + XBox live with downloadable courses.And golfers.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Outlaw Golf

Overall: I've been waiting for this and Tiger Woods to come out for a fairly long time, so as soon as I saw it was in, I hired and to tell you the truth, I was very dissapointed, it had everything to become a great game with all the features and different modes that you dont find in other golf games, but the makers didn't spend enough time making it real enough.

Gameplay: The worst part was the gameplay, what ball seriously rolls that far when you hit it onto the green, there was lots to do but it was too poorly made.

Graphics: Looked great, everything looked in place and it all worked but once again the gameplay spoiled it for everyone.

Audio: Seriously, how annoying can one commentator be??? the things he said were funny the first 10 times he said it but after that it's just annoying, would have been good with a custom soundtrack.

Suggestions: Concerntrate more on the golf part of the game!

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 MotoGP

Overall: I'm not really that big a fan of motobikes or racing them, but after seeing great reviews for this game I decided I had to play it, and I wasn't dissapointed, it really is a brilliant game that everyone should own. Great Appeal.

Gameplay: Great gameplay with perfect controls that emerse you in the game, with tons of things to unlock and lots of courses, plus great multiplayer fun.

Graphics: Looks awesome, looks like you are actually racing, bikes, riders and all the tracks look great the only bad part is some of the weather effects make it so you can bearly see where you are going.

Audio: Great effects but the music that goes on while you are racing is pretty crap, but that is luckily fixed with some good tunes from your own custom-soundtrack.

Suggestions: Keep it up, better non-custom-soundtrack music, keep the custom-soundtrack and make a 2nd one.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Unreal Championship

Overall: After hearing all the hype and knowing how ggo dthe first was I knew I had to play this, I was a little dissapointed with the depth and long loading times but overall it was allright.

Gameplay: Frantic, fast paced action, nothing like a game where you run around reall, really fast shooting things and blowing peole up. Is quite repetitiver though. Multiplayer is awesome- i'll never get sick of the multiplayer

Graphics: Looks great, but thats what you expect on X-Box, great looking levels and characters, the guns look great.

Audio: Nice effects and voices, would have been better with a custom-soundtrack though, because the game can get boring because of the dull music.

Suggestions: Better music and more variation.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 WWF Raw

Overall: Being a huge wrestling and WWE fan I bought this game as soon as it came out and it looked awesome but it is lacking alot of depth with no custom-soundtrack, no PPV modes, an out-dated roster, no proper career mode alot of wrestling fans are just going to skip this and wait for the 2nd.

Gameplay: Not enough to do lacking alot of depth with no custom-soundtrack, no PPV modes, an out-dated roster, no proper career mode make it pretty dodgy gameplay, but in the ring it gets better.

Graphics: Looks brilliant, the entrances are awesome and the wrestlers emotions look great, easily the best part of the game.

Audio: Some of the in-ring music is annoying after a while, luckily the crowd sounds great to cover it up. Definately needs a custom-soundtrack for in the ring and for in the create-a-wrestler section to make up for the crap roster.

Suggestions: More depth, career mode, custom-soundtrack, better roster, more game modes, more specialty matches, play it online, put a royal rumble in there, don't forget RVD,BOOKER T,HBK etc...

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Legends of Wrestling

Overall: Being a huge wrestling fan, as soon as I bought my X-Box I wanted to hire this game to see if it was any good, and I'm not really dissapointed it is quite a good game, but strictly for wrestling addicts only.

Gameplay: Allright gameplay, a fair bit to keep you going and a custom soundtrack in create-a-wrestler mode was awesome but the controls were a bit off, and button bashing- owww!

Graphics: Probably the worst part of the game, the wrestlers all looked like they'd just got out of a swimming pool full of grease, plus they didn't move very well.

Audio: Custom soundtrack + a wrestling game = awesome, the sound was great and listening to all the old themes was great. The only bad part aboot the sound was that the entrances were too short so you didn't get to listen to much of the entrance music.

Suggestions: Try to make it more like RAW or RAW 2, with tons of wrestlers, make it look better and keep the custom soundtrack.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell

Overall: Tons of appeal looking at pics + movies of it, great reviews. So I was dying 2 play it, and when I did I wasn't dissapointed.

Gameplay: Great gameplay, perfect controls, lots of awesome gadgets to fiddle around with, and theres sumfin really satisfying aboot finishing a level withg out being seen.

Graphics: Awesome graphics that move sooo... smooooothly, great lighting pus awesome shadow effects. Looks really sweeeeeettt.

Audio: Great sound that emerses you in the game and makes u want to keep going and going....., gets you in the whole covert mode.

Suggestions: Keep it up and bring out a 2nd!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Madden NFL 2003

Overall: Great appeal, I didn't know much about American Football but after seeing the reviews, seeing game movies 4 it and playing a demo of it I was hooked straight away. Tons to do- never gunna run out of things to do.

Gameplay: Great gameplay, with smart opponents and team mates, makes you feel like your really in the game, the only thing that could use changing is the run button changing from offense to defense.

Graphics: The players, stadium and everything look great and realistic, the weather effects are great, great camera angles and the action replays are brilliant.

Audio: Great songs, awesome tunes, the crowd and the effects with things like tackles were great, the only thing that needs improving is the crowd at the end of the game doesn't get very excited.

Suggestions: Great work keep it up.!!!!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Project Gotham Racing

Overall: Great appeal, until you play it then
you wonder why you bought it or
hired it. It was appealing until I
played it.

Gameplay: GAMEPLAY- don't make me laugh-
hahahahahahahaha- the
gameplay is such a kabitser. It's
horrible. You tap the button and
nothing happens a bit harder and
you slide all over the place, what
car slides out every time it turns.
And it feels like its as slow as an
elephant with no legs.

Graphics: It actually looks half decent but you
dont get to see much of the
graphics because you dont want
to play it any more after 5 mins.

Audio: Custom soundtrack and some
good songs on there, this is the
only good part of the game, but it
still isn't enough.

Suggestions: make a game that is half decent!

Overall Score: 2.0 / 10 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4

Overall: After the first 3 have been soooo....
good this is a must play/buy, it's
the best out of the 4 and is totally

Gameplay: Great gameplay and wonderful
controls just like all the THPS', the
best career mode yet and lots of

Graphics: Great looking skaters, parks and
tricks, that absorb you into the
atmosphere and make you want
to keep going and going.

Audio: Great songs including AC/DC at
the start of the game with TNT,
great songs including SOAD- and
a custom soundtrack.

Suggestions: Keep it up- bring out a 5th, and
make more levels.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 FIFA Soccer 2003

Overall: The most appealing soccer game
since World cup 2002, great
looking lots of teams and a great
overall atmosphere.

Gameplay: Great gameplay that actually gives
you challenge not like some other
soccer games, not too easy to kick
goals like most soccer games
and lots of teams and lots of real
great looking players.

Graphics: Great looking, you can tell who the
players are the first time you see
them and the stadiums and crowd
look great.

Audio: Good sound-effects, some good
songs too. Would be good if while
you were playing you could have a
custom soundtrack going in the

Suggestions: Custom soundtrack, penalty
shoot-outs, create-a-player/team
and X-Box live would be great.

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10 Deathrow

Overall: Great overall appeal, when u start playing you don't want to stop until u know everyting about the game and until you have unlocked everyting and beaten every team.

Gameplay: Great gameplay that makes you want more and more, the characters do what you want them to do when you want them to do it and it will take you ages to get sick of.

Graphics: Great graphics, especially of every different player, great graphics especially with so much on the screen at the one time.

Audio: Custom soundtracks are always great on any game and lots of swearing- what moe do you need. Just make sure you play it loud.

Suggestions: Keep up the good work and put in a longer career mode with more teams.

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10
