3.0 out of 5 stars buy Burnout., 25 Nov. 2005
this game is average, thats the best way to sum it up, it has its moments but overall its just o.k. NFS; MW is just like NFS 2 but with better graphics and car chases. the game play fine but is realy nouthing specail. the modding aspect is done well and adds a chance for the player to soup up thier car or give it a new paint job. if you want a realy fast racing game, get "Burnout ; Revenge" as it is a far better game thena NFS. if you want a game which lets you mod, get "Juiced" or "Forza motorsport" for xbox.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broken, 25 Nov. 2005
Sonic Team + 3D = competle failure. ok im probably going to get slated by "teh massive sonic fans" for this review but i realy dont care. if you ever owned a mega drive you will now how good 2d sonic is, however as we merged into the 3d era, sonic lost its charm and , well stoped being a good game. This game has loads of short comings whether it be its absolutly rubbish camera which gets stuck behind rocks around the screen or its failure to create a sense of speed. The graphics are moderate and the whole "sonic with guns" thing..... bahahahahaha. this game is o.k at best , with poor gameplay and a camera i still cannot get over. do yourself a favour and dont buy this game. if you are a true sonic fan buy "Sonic Rush" for the DS to see how a Sonic game should play, and if you still have Mega Drive, fire it up ,but please, please dont buy this awful game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Half Life 2 on the xbox, 19 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Half-Life 2 (Xbox) (Video Game)
Half Life was renown as the best FPS of its time. But does the sequal live up to the hype? well if you havent been living in a cave for the last year you know it does! Half Life 2 is a brillent game. The graphics push the xbox to its limit and the game runs at a solid 30 fps with almost no slow down! The gameplay is the standerd set up and plays well. but what really sets Half Life 2 apart from other games on the market is its varirty in level design and its compeling and mysterious story. The game takes place in a built up city, a swamp, a haunted town a miltary base and many more. Each level is built in a diffrent way an each has a unique feel to it. my only quible is the lack of mulitiplayer and the loading screens. If you are considering about wether to make one more purchase for your xbox, or arent upgrading to the 360 and you want a brillent game for christmas (or to last you ti'll then) then Half Life 2 is a must have. This game is totaly mind blowing, and the worst part of it is when it ends (after about 18hrs of gameplay). This is my last xbox game and a great way to send the console out with a bang.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAR CRY ....from a bad game, 28 Sept. 2005
firstly the press have been giving Far Cry Rave reviews 9+/10 have been given across all sots of magazines/ internet sites if you want to see videos or screen shots for this game vist IGN.com. ok for thoose of you who dont know what Far Cry is Far Cry is one of the best FPS games on the PC along side Half life 2 and DOOM 3. This version of Far Cry (instincts) is the now xbox exclusive console version of the game with a slightly altered story line and gamplay elements. far cry offers a huge range of vechiles to drive and wepons to shoot. the game takes place on a remote tropical island and each level takes place like a First person GTA game with literaly hundreds of routes you can take through diffrent levels. you start of stranded and hunted having to use skirmish tactics to take down your enemys.but later in the game you get injected with a serum giving you super human abilitys allowing you to weild huge guns , run faster and track enemys using thier scent and advanced sight system. i cannot stress how great far cry is and how it should definatly be one of your last xbox purchases (along side Half Life 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black!)before you (envitably) upgrade to a 360. great game smooth controls and amazing graphics with some cool touchs. definatly not your average shooter!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST RACER EVER?, 1 Sept. 2005
Hello,....firstly i will tell u waht i know about this game...its fast and furious and most certainly eye wateringly fast.....apart from high speed racing what sets burnout apart form the compertition is the ability to smash ur opents cars off the road and complety destroy them!...u will also race with perdestirain trafiic on the road meaning u will have to dodge and swearve out he way of oncoming traffic...and a new ability in Revenge allows u to ram perdestrain cars into ur opponents......apart form racing Burnout features a "crash" mode where u have to crash ur car into a load of oncoming traffic and see how much $$$ of damage u cause!!...burnout is blisteringly fast and not for the faint hearted..the game also has a massive single player and u can take the game online...the cars handle perfectly (note: this is an arcade racer) and the game is perfecty paced with amazing graphics....overall this is a contender for the best racer ever...it really is that good...and for thoose of u who have played Burnout 3 takedown...this IS a full blown sequal..not just a yearly update!!....buy it now.....if u like any sort of games u will not be dissapointed

5.0 out of 5 stars if you dont buy this your future wont be perfect, 15 Mar. 2005
shooters on the gamecube are a rare thing but shooters of this quailty on the gamecube are even rarer. this game has THE best mutiplayer ever and the longest single player game as well with story , arcade and challenge modes to keep u happy for ages ( some of which are soo hard its almost imposable)as if all this wasent enough i HAVE played this game and it has 4 diffrent types of monkeys including zombie and ninja monkeys. the game play is smooth and polished and the graphics are exerlent as well + this game has so many halirious one liners it will make you laught out loud. all in all a very polished + complete package

5.0 out of 5 stars DS Vs PSP, 6 Jan. 2005
many gamers will be asking themselves this question: DS or PSP. I my self have to admit am a Nintendo fam boy but think about the endless possibiltys of the touch screen. the DS has N64 graphics ( an arma 64 proccesor) and about the same processor speed. its battery life over takes the PSP by 4hrs (the PSP only has 6hr battery life)and if you want to play muliplayer with a friend they dont need to have the game to play it! the DS CAN BEAM OVER THE INFORMATOIN WIRELESSLY !!! even more inovation and muitplayer exerlence from Nintendo not to mention the Free texting caperbilitys (picto chat). stick that in your pipe and smoke it Sony

3.0 out of 5 stars run like hell : thats what i did when i saw this game, 26 July 2004
This review is from: Run Like Hell (Xbox) (Video Game)
run like hells good but not that good.its a fairly average game with nouthing new in it apart from a few quick scares.NOW let me tell you about a game called DOOM you are a marine on a space station on mars but you get exiled. in this place your sent to in exile you hear a message calling for help from your ( former )space station .on arriving all your old comrades are evil zombies and deamons are every where. you have to fight your way to hell to free your self from this living nighmare.now read the product description of this game. sounds similar dosent it but geuss which one was made first thats right doom was. does any one see a law suite aroud here.my advice bye doom 3 for the x box insted its a much better game any way

4.0 out of 5 stars the bond best so far?, 28 Feb. 2004
frist of all one of the reviews by ghgcole from watford has been copied stright from an issue of nintendo offical magazine (as if someone wouldn't notice). as for my personal veiw its a very glossy package but has no punch.there are 30 action packed levels on this game (and thats only one player) but some are very short lasting about five minutes.the one main problem with this game is the lock on system most of the time its good but it can tend to wacko on you.overall its not as good as golden eye but what is. there are also better shooters on the market eg:XIII or time splitters 2 but this is worthy of the bond title and your hard earned cash
