2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible & Sickening. Creating a wrestler is good though., 28 Dec. 2004
Any wrestling game on the xbox should be great. The console has the ability to create amazing graphics (Halo2, KOTOR, Splinter Cell, etc) and is simply a super computer that doesnt crash all the time. So there is no excuse for a game to be so bad, that it almost hurts to play. Raw 2 has a pathetic gameplay, the characters move so slowly that if they moved any slower they wouldn't be moving at all. They all have a very simliar set of moves, Scoop slam, suplex, 'club to back of head'. And for gods sakes, Lita cannot grab rikishi by the hair and throw him around in a 'giant swing'.
The graphics are reasonably good, and the create a wrestler is the best feature. You can alter any wrester and create a completely new one, and alter their entrance and include any music on your xbox hard disk. Thats about as good as it gets.
Too many times, HHH will be challeged by Jazz in a ladder match and lose, because the Ladder matches are almost impossible to win. Too many times your match will be interfered with by your enemy, who will run down to the ring and then attack your oponent, and not you. And far too many times, you'll hit Spike Dudley with a sledgehammer, a steel chair, a 2x4 wrapped in barbed wire and then powerbomb him through a table, and he'll stand up again and powerbomb you right back. Even if your the Big Show. I remember this one time i fought the Rock for 1 hour on Hard, and in the end i just gave up because he just would not stay down. And even when he was down for more than three seconds, there was the Referee to deal with. You have your openent pinned and the referee stands there and looks at you. Then walks over and counts one...<three seconds pass>..two...<5 seconds pass>.....Two Count as they kick out.
It's actually insulting that the xbox has such potential, but people in charge can't look at good games like 'Here comes the Pain' and incorporate some aspects into these games. In Raw, there is no back stage fighting. The Cell cannot be walked all the way around. There is no elimination chamber. There is no first blood match. (no blood at all). There is no last man standing match, iron man match, casket, buried alive..... Its just awful. But you can play a 1vs1 harcore, street fight, cage, cell, battle royal. Basic matches centered around the squared circle. And the weapons do little or no damage at all. And the referee is rubbish. And the interference is a joke. Along with the npc's ability stand up immediately after any degree of punishment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of ten stars......, 29 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Syndicate Wars (Video Game)
This is without a doubt one of the best games that i have ever had. It sets a futuristic atmostphere, and combines it with reasonable graphics and fantastic gameplay. I've had this game since 1998, and never tired of it to this day. Not only is it a great single playing experience, but it is also very enjoyable cooperative
Now that the Playstation is a dead system, and customers now buy PS2's, it is unlikely that this game will be bought. But the very fact that you are reading this suggests that you are considering the purchase. Do not blink. Buy this game, invite round your friends (upto 4 player) and play the best and most enjoyable game to hit the playstation throughout its existance. (September 2003)

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Really Poor, 3 Sept. 2003
I have collected the Ultimate Xmen series since issue one and enjoyed them all thouroughly, except this one. After reading the first two issues i was eager to read the next installement. To my horror, i saw that the story was pointless and the later artwok is terrible.
The previous two issues were great, well drawn and with fantastic stories. This issue seems really pointless and follows Xavier's son around as he blows people up. To make matters worse, the artwork at the final battle (there always has to be a final battle between good and evil) is pathetic. At times i did not know what the hell was going on! I would stare at the picture in front of me and say "What is that supposed to be???!"
What was so sad about this issue was that the first 3/4 of te book was drawn beautifully by Adam Kubert. Then Chris Bachalo takes over towards the end and spoils the rest of the book. What makes matters worse is that Bachalo was allowed to draw the entire of Issue 5 Ultimate war, which would have been amazing with a good artist. Instead it was defiled and violated by Bachalo's poor attempt at art.
As usual, this book has a fantastic script.......but the story seems utterly pointless and the artwok is of poor quality compared to the previous books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Close but no Cigar, 23 May 2003
This review is from: Tekken 4 (PS2) (Video Game)
All 3 Tekken games before Tekken 4 were stunning for their time. The first allowed a mix of storylines, great graphics and scenery. The second improved graphics added characters and moves, and the third was just so good it was in a league of its own. In fact Tekken 3 was so good the producers decided to make Tekken Tag with the same game engine, making it exactly the same but with an overload of characters.
Along comes Tekken 4. They have destroyed all of the respct for the characters wich has been built up over the years. For example, Lei is now an exact copy of Jackie Chan, talks and acts like a fool during his cutscenes. Hworang is badly voiced over, and Yoshimitsu now has wings. Ok, the game has improved graphics and an unmatchable set of moves, but there are only 15 characters to play with. The game takes about an hour to complete, and there is no hidden game like Tekkenbowl or TekkenBall. They have included Tekken force, which is impressive. Its a 3d version of streets of Rage and is very fun, just impossible to beat. Rent the game, or buy it and keep it as a one player game because there are not enough characters to sustain a muultiplayer experience. But Tekken Tag instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 1 Jan. 2003
This is truly a great game. The graphics do not stress the ability of the ps2, but are still good. The scenery of the missions are impressive, ranging from deserts, enemy camps, to big cities. In each of these locations you must remain aware, because of the vulnerability of your men to enemy attacks. It is very realistic in terms of weapons, vehicles, and injuries. If your man gets shot in the leg, he limps.
Go and add this game to your shopping basket. NOW, go on, NOW!
