Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell

Overall: Easily one of the most enjoyable games I have ever had the luxury to play. I was drawn in from the start, and have not been disappointed since. Gameplay, Visuals, Audio, and Concept are in a word brilliant.

Gameplay: Realism is the key. You have to be quiet, patient, and a smooth criminal (I mean operative) to survive this game. It is a pleasant and refreshing change from all the run-and-gun games that have benn flooding the markets. It is much more challenging attempting to get through an entire level without the ability to save continuously. Although somewhat linear, there seems to be real depth to game, the story keeps you going and the action is great! Could the moves and your arsenal be any cooler! Overall, this is a fun game and with downloadable content you'll never put this one down!

Graphics: Stunning breakthroughs in lighting! Everything was impressive less the cutscenes, which were less than fluid and gameplay graphics were far superior.

Audio: Sound? I thought you had to be quiet to win the game?!? Soda cans hitting the floor, the sound of suppresors capping enemies in dark alleys really brought the game to life. Most games have an annoying soundtrack, the cycles so many times you have nightmares, not this one. There seemed to be a place and purpose for every sound. Great job.

Suggestions: Splinter Cell 2

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Halo: Combat Evolved

Overall: AWWWWWWWRRRRIGHT! Of course if you're reading this you most assuredly know that Halo rocks and kicks total ARSE! If have never played it, you must do so today. Leave work buy(not rent) it and go straight home and play it. All the reviews are true, it is the best shooter to date and with the ability to use vehicles, you will never grow tired of this one of a kind game!

Gameplay: Controls are fluid and easy to manipulate! Not a tiresome setup allows nonstop gameplay and no exhaustion.

Graphics: NOT JUST EYE CANDY, but an entire meal! Everything is visually stimulating from the game to the cutscenes! ENJOY! Seeing is believing.

Audio: Enriching acoustics really bode well for this game and everything from background noises to Marines shouting to beautiful sound of the needler exploding in your enemies sounds wonderful.

Suggestions: Already read my mind...Halo 2 with multi-player, and possibly X-Box Live! Keep up the great work!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Overall: When I first went to purchase The Two Towers, I was a little leery. With all the hype and exposure with the movies, I thought this is going to suck, another commercialized movie spin-off. I WAS WRONG! I take back all the things I previously thought, or muttered aloud. The game, movie, experience, or whatever you want to call it is pure genius. It makes me proud to own an X-box! The designers did the movie, the story, Peter Jackson, and The big JRR T himself justice by using the potential of the X-box to bring this game to life. Thanks to all. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing the game over and over as have my friends. It is a must have for any fan.

Gameplay: Although quite linear, it was a necessary evil to follow the story line. The combos are tough and sometimes it seems no matter what you do, you continually repeat the same move over and over again, but they sure look cool!

Graphics: Beautifully rendered goodness. When I first experienced the game, I had set the controller down and was really enjoying the opening cutscene, when I suddenly realized I was supposed to be playing! WOW! I am really not that stupid, but the seamless transition between cutscene, movie scenes, and the actual game is staggering. Most of the time they will cause you to do a doubletake. Neither the cutscenes nor the gameplay leave anything to be desired. The rich, lush backdrops of Middle Earth and excellent character models make for a very rewarding experience.

Audio: Goosebumps! The Lord of the Rings musical scores is awesome. Once again another tremendous accomplishment which continually reminds you of the movie. Am I in the game or in the movie, somebody pinch me. Truly incredible sound effects. The actual actors? voices helped with a total immersion into the game and Middle Earth.

Suggestions: Multi-player Cooperative Play

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10
