    5-0 out of 5 stars Great game, one of the best PS2 games for young kids!
    I play this with my 6 year old all the time. He loves it. It looks great and the gameplay is great. Not too hard and you really have to play as a team to progress. He can also make progess with his buddies also.

    BTW, re: the review ofA. Sybilrud below. I am playing this on one of the original PS2 machines and it works perfectly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Legos with a Jedi Twist
    When I first heard about this game I was a bit hesitant to get it because it looked like it appealed to a younger audience. My best friend suggested I buy this game so I took his advice. When I first started playing it I was hooked.

    I think that fans of old school Star Wars (IV-VI) will enjoy this game as well because you can actually kill Jar Jar Binks.

    I'm currently playing Episode Two, but you can play them in any order you wish.

    I'm hoping that they continue the series and make a Lego Star Wars based on Episodes IV-VI.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Will not work on older model PS2s!!!!
    I actually haven't played this game before because I only got "disk error: can not read disk" messages upon isserting the disk.When I brought it back to the playstation store in San Francisco, they told me that since the game is made on CDrom's instead of DVDroms (like most games) it will not play on the older style PS2's.Only the new slim models have the ability to play CDrom titles.
    Note: the game box says nothing about this.

    Other than that major issue, I've heard it's a great game.:o(

    5-0 out of 5 stars Star Wars fans, check this one out!
    While 'Lego Star Wars' may appear to be a kid's game, it's sill lots of fun for the older gamer.With so many unlockable characters, hints, and cheats, this game is great for Star Wars fans of any age group!

    In this game, you'll play through various parts of Episodes III, and III, from your landing on Naboo, to escaping the droid factory, and reliving the final duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan.If you haven't seen 'Revenge of the Sith' yet, don't worry about the game spoiling too much for you.I played the game before watching the movie, and I was not disappointed with that arrangement.

    Even though this game is rated "E" for everyone, and it is pretty easy throughout, some of the younger players may have difficulty in various sections, especially the levels where you're piloting a vehicle.In fact, some of the older players may have a heck of a time with the podracing level.Don't be surprised if your little gamer at home asks for assistance in some points.And when it comes to achieving "True Jedi" status (finding a certain number of "Lego studs" in each level), or finding all of the Minikit fragments, the little ones will more than likely need a little bit of help.However, this brings us to a great aspect of the game...

    When any game is in progress, all one has to do is press the start button on Player 2's contraller to join in.Press start again and choose "Drop Out' to exit.This provides a great way for parents to help their young ones through tight spots and some of the harder puzzles (albiet none are REALLY hard).However, I would not recommend this tactic for the vehicle levels, because if one of you crashes, you both start over.

    Using the Force to manipulate Lego blocks to build bridges, platforms, etc., is perhaps the most entertaining aspect of the game.Not only that, but there are special objects only a Sith Lord (i.e. Darth Maul) can use.Be sure to use your unlocked baddies in Free Play mode.

    That said, Free Play mode is what really makes this game great.Playing through any and all the levels (minus the vehicle levels) with any and all the characters you've made available is loads of fun.Nothing like making Darth Maul face himself at the end of Episode I!With over 30 characters available, you have quite a few to choose from.Each character has certain abilities you will need to fully complete each level (finding all of the Minikit pieces, especially).This adds more gameplay time to an other wise relatively short game.

    The graphics, while not the best the PS2 can dish out, are still superb when it comes to showing us the Star Wars universe in Lego form.The music and sound effects, thanks to Skywalker Sound, come right out of the movies into the game.Even the Droideka's (destroyer droid's) blasters sound movie-accurate, not to mention the lightsabers!The music does cut out sometimes, but not frequently, and not enough to really bother you.

    The only major problem I had with this game is the lack of camera control.The awkward, and sometimes jerky, camera angles make many of the jumps and obstacles both difficult and frustrating.You'll jump straight towards a ledge only to find out you missed by a mile.The right analog stick is unassigned to any action, which could have been used to help the player control the camera.While it will definitely aggrivate you when you try to jump from platform to platform and repeatedly fall and miss, you just come to accept it.Hopefully they will fix it if they do make a sequel ("To be continued..." is said when you beat the level behind the door marked "?".)

    If you or your little gamer aren't fans of Star Wars, this game will probably be no more than a pleasant little distraction; a good way to kill a few hours.But if you ARE a fan, then this game is worth buying, even for the older fans.It might seem a little "kidified" to you, but you can tell LucasArts and Eidos took this game seriously.

    I anxiously await a sequel with Episodes IV, V, and VI, and if you play this game, you'll understand why!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lego Star Wars
    Star Wars is good because it's just like the movies. It has episode 1,2, and 3. One of the minuses is you have to figure out what to do and that's sort of hard. Overall it's a great game to play. Try it!!!!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you thougt Vice City was awsom.GTA is just Beginning!
    Man, I dont see how GTA can get any better.Unlike the previous GTA Games,This one you have stats.Such as Fat,Stamina,Sex Appeal,Muscle,Hunger,And lots more.Just one Island is bigger than all of Vice City.Each island represents a popular city, and they are,Los Angelas,San Francisco,and Las Vegas.You can even bye drinks, play arcade games, even Bet on Casino games.Like on Vice City, The aircraft only go up to like 50 feat.Here they go up to like 1500 feat.Oh and did I mention you can swim.This is defiently the Best GTA Game ever.Get it.Its worth every penny.(Caution:Not for kids under age 17)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Greatest game I've played
    I rented this game for 1 week. The 2- player part is hard to find but it is worth it. In 2- player mode you can shoot people and the cops will chase you. (OBVIOUSLY) And the money you get from 2- player you can keep. The 1 player mode roxxx!!! you can costumize Carl and you can beat up other gang members ND jack their guns and money. Overall I give this game a 4.5!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The games price won't lower which is telling you it's a good
    The game is great one thing that bothers me is the control it's no more directional buttons but analog which makes it harder to control,but other wise then that the game is long and great and is worth buying oh yeah Not for children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars gta:San andreas
    the best game ever made keep it up rockstar please keep carl jonson.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great game.
    CJ ran away from home after his brother died, but now its time to go back. His mother was shot in a drive-by that was intended to kill his other brother, Sweet, and he has to go back to bury her. But he ends up staying longer then that.

    The gang Sweet is the leader of is called Grove Street Families, but since CJ left the gang has gone from ruling the town to just another gang no one really cares about. There's a huge crack problem thats made everyone completely change into different people, and now that CJ's back, Sweet needs his help to get Grove Street back on track.

    There are other things besides the main storyline, like all GTA games. One new feature is that you can buy clothes from different stores (that you unlock as you progress through the game) and mix and match. Your clothes determine how much respect you get from gang members, and how many compliments you get from people on the street.

    The clothes that raise your "sex appeal" the most, halfway, are the "special" outfits, that you can only get through missions or... dating. Yes, that's right, dating. If you get your relationship to 100% with certain women, they'll give you outfits.

    There are a few downsides, nothing that affect the overall gameplay. Blocky hands, wierd movements when talking, driving controlls suck, things like those that don't affect you. Other then that, I recommend this game to any fans of GTA or rockstar games, and anyone who's mature enough to handle it. ... Read more

    This is the best game i have ever played...i use to play tokyo extreme racing zero but i got bored of it within a couple days of buying it so i never got to finish it.i love this midnight club dub edition so much i can't stop playing it...i'm a girl and i already got up to 65 percent within one week... i go to school full time and work full time so that tells you how much dedication i have in this game.i love the fact that it has the slow motion for you to use when you know ur gonna hit the wall so it helps you steer...i also like the cars that they provide in here because its so realistic and its the cars you wishyou can have but since you can't in real life you have it at home on ur game! its the GREATTTTTTTTTTTEST!!!!!! yu will not regret buying it i promise yu that

    5-0 out of 5 stars one word...
    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the best game ever!!!!!! It's so fun to run into innocent people's cars. If you buy it and don't like it you belong in a mental innstitute. I swear, you will not be dissapointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
    This game is excellent as soon as you put it in. You can customize so much stuff on your car it makes you think if you're really customizing a car. The controls are perfect and there is so many cars and bikes to rise it will keep you playing for hours to unlock them all. If you want a simulation buy Gran Turismo 4if you want the best racer ever buy Midnight Club 3.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game!
    This game is an all around awesome game! However, the question will always be asked, "is it better than NFSU2?". I own both games and have no clearcut favorite. Although I do find myself slightly gravitating towards Midnight Club 3. The only reason I say that is I think that it does a much better job simulating the street racing lifestyle. When you look at the car details and game backgrounds, Midnight Club 3 is by far the winner. I think that NFSU2's graphic's are slightly cartoony. I think Midnight Club 3 just has more style in it's customization. NFSU2 is all about getting your car a "10" visual rating, where as in Midnight Club 3 you can pick parts that you think really complete the look of your car. And you don't HAVE to use that ugly carbon fiber. However I leave the decision compleatly up to you. It's a matter of personal prefrence, and they are both great games!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game is TIGHT!
    It's like Pimp My ride and The Fast and the Furious in one. You can customize yur own car and evrything. when its snowing in detroit you can do donuts and when you customize your car, hydrolics are the first thing to buy. if you put on the no damage cheat - ontheroad - you can crash into as many things as you want, and your car wont even get dirt on it. its really annoying and fun when your in the middle of a race and a cop is right on yur tail. I just rented it but i know im gonna buy it. you will not waste your money on this game, its worth every penny. And the soundtrack is the best. its got 50 cent, twista, petey pablo. but it also has really stupid disco songs too, but this is the funnest racing game ive ever played. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Battlefront
    This game is amazing it`s like a desert storm game Star Wars style. The game gets very repetitive after a while but, it`s still a good game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best StarWars Game To Date!
    Alright, now... there has not been a single StarWars game that has been released before this one that is really any good ( to me. ) I always thought it would be a very good idea for StarWars to make an all out battle game like this. I basically got my wish in this game. In playing this, I found that it was exactly what i wanted.. pretty good A.I., bodies fly when hit by grenades, good graphics, air craft and ground vehicles... it's fantastic... but there are also some problems; glitches, if you will. For instance, on Dune Sea on Tantooine or maybe the Docks on Kashyyk, you can fly or jump onto the cliff or hut ( depending ont he level ) and you can prone down to be unseen. I found this ' glitch ' awhile ago when I first got the game, but it's not very useful simply because they are not in good positions. Changing that subject on the game, i'll tell you what i think about the A.I. I found that there are times when the A.I. just stands around in a corner and does not move at all ( for whatever reason ) , so to settle that, you could kill him ( on your team or not ) but if he is on your team, you could use one of the commands using the PS2 D-pad, such as ' Follow Me ' or ' Move Out ' . About the levels, there are about 8 or more ( i'm not sure right now ) different planets to play on, and about 16 levels. ( 2 on each planet, if you do the math. ) Just about all the levels are fun and unique in their own way, and you could simply place your character on a roof-top and go into ' first-person ' view, and simply watch the battle. You can also play in Galactic Civil Wars or The Clone Wars, The GCW having the Empire and the Rebels, and TCW having the Clones(Republic) and the CIS(The Evil Dudes). Either way you play, it's fun. ( Although if you are playing the in TCW and you are on the Republic side, you have to play against the Driodekas, which are very hard to exterminate. You would know that if you saw the star wars movies or played this game. ) There is also a few game modes as well, which allow you to play the battles in order, starting from the Episode IV, A New Hope. It even shows movie clips if you play in this mode. Though this is rather fun, there are really no awards except ( for what I find extremely lame for your hard labor playing this game ) concept art. I thought maybe I would be getting a Jedi and would be able to use his light saber. ( Which you can see A.I.ed players using on certain levels. ) But hey, with StarWars Battlefront II coming out, you WILL be able to play as the Jedi! One last thing to say about a flaw in this game; the difficulty levels. Easy is too easy, on Medium most cases you are the only one doing anything, and on Hard.. well.. I can't honestly say I even played this mode yet.. at least that I remember. Anyways on a last note, I got this game the first day of it's release and I do not regret it, this game is well worth your money, but only if you play a few times a day/week.

    This game is an absolute blast the first few times you play it. There are many modes so that no two plays are alike. However, it is not the type of game that you play a million times over even after you've beaten it. Overall, a great buy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's racing without the ridges
    This is the first game I bought for the PSP and it's a great one. It really shows off the power of the system, the sound is incredible, the graphics jaw dropping, and it's immensely playable.

    One minor gripe though is that the basic tour is waaaaaay too easy. Your car easily outpaces anything else on the track and finishing in first place, a mile up the road from the competition in all 30-odd races is no problem at all. Knowing you're going to win every race and spending every lap out in front on your own gets a bit tedious. The Pro section is a bit better however - although could still be a bit harder to get that podium finish! The controls are nicely customisable and intuitive and the cars have suitably different handling characteristics to make the game challenging.

    But overall a great PSP game - really playable and a huge 'wow' factor from all my mates - well impressed ;-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing racer for the psp
    For a launch title, Ridge Racer is an amazing game. It really shows off the great graphics on the PSP and the gameplay is great as well. Everything is near perfect on here. The graphics, sound, and controls are all outstanding although if you don't like arcade style racers you may want to avoid this or give it a rental. The game's use of power sliding works well and is fun although the game seems to be a bit easier because of it. Since the game require more streaming off the disk, the battery is life is shorter although I really don't mind it at all. Anyway, if you want a racing game for the PSP, one of the best is already out there waiting for you to pick it up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars when in doubt, just keep drifting
    the problem of this game is this.. simply by deliberately drifting the car, you can avoid hitting the boundary, hence the reduction of speed.. although drifting too recklessly could slow you down.. but a well managed but a bit aimless drifting can help avoiding penalty.. and put your car back onto the right direction and track...which i think is a flaw... this makes the game a bit easlier to finish.. and a bit routine

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ridge Racer.......
    Think of this Ridge Racer as a 'best-of' collectionthat has all the best bits of the ten-year long previous Ridge games and you pretty much got the idea of what this Ridge Racer holds in store. It boasts the largest selection of tracks in any previous version(24, to be exact), with a selection of 58 different cars, as well as upgrades for your cars. It's possibly the biggest and best Ridge Racer to date. Add to that, 8 player head to head competition(something that no other racer has, right now, except for Wipeout Pure) which can get really intense- at times-...let me tell you.Speed and control are dead-on, which is important with this type of racer. The graphics...well,...let's just say are simply amazing. Some of the best I've seen on the PSP so far. It's one of those games that shows the PSPs' graphical prowess. It's much sharper and realistic looking than the version of Ridge Racer for the Nintendo DS(which, in my opinion, looked downright horrendous). It's the second racer I've got for my collection(Need for Speed Underground Rivals being the first)of PSP games and is another that has kept me addicted playing for weeks on end.
    If you're a Ridge Racer fan that wants to take a drive down Memory Lane for some all-out racing fun, this game is definitely for you.If, however, you're not big on the series...this game won't do much to change your mind about it.
    I'll admit, I'm not much of a Ridge Racer fan myself but this game has been a blast to play. I love it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fourth best racer on PSP
    This game has PS2 graphics and decent steering.This game is obviously better than the DS port it is lacking a realistic game play.It is too much of an arcade game, and I don't mean like a street racer, I mean like a game where you put in the 50 cents and drive.Also, like the other RRs, the cars are bunched up in small groups which you easily pass in half a lap so most of the time you are just driving around alone.The commentary is horrible.I bet Evenderr Hollyfield now wants Mike Tyson to bite off his other ear off too after listening to the commentary of the game.This game is ok but with the other good PSP games this might be one you want to pass. ...

    Using the technology from this 8MB Memory Card (left over from the dead Terminator), you should be able to construct another Terminator robot and send it through time.

    If you create a bad Terminator robot, you should definitely soup it up like the A-Team van, with some crazy special powers that will help it destroy mankind.If you create a good Terminator robot, just make it like normal (and P.S. thanks for saving mankind).

    The official 8MB PS2 memory card is good if you have only a couple of games.otherwise you need to buy more than one.It is said that it runs 200 times faster, which isn't entirely accurate (usually about 185 times, but 200 is supposed to be the max).I bought this thing used for $17 dollars.That's expensive.If you have an oldr model of Playstation, it would be better to shell out $100 for Final Fantasy 11/hard drive bundle.The hard drive is 40 gigs, which is 5,120 times larger than this memory card.If you have a slim ps2, you can't use the hard drive.In that case, buy the 2 pack memory cards from Sony. It runs from $32 to $40, so get that package.Overall, a fast, reliable card, but Sony needs to produce larger cards.

    3-0 out of 5 stars be aware
    ill tell you it is a good memory card but over time it will erase everything if you action replay max and if you use it on the getaway game it will erase every thing so if you have it just to let you know that

    4-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A GOOD MEMORY CARD
    MEMORY cards are quite dear and hold 8 blocks of Memory,games like The Sims ect. take up alot of Memory space so saving other games are more difficult to save,i do Prefer The GameCube memory cards b-cs they have more space so ide often have to delete memory from Magic Gate 8MB(8 Memory Blocks) to save my newer games.The PS2 is backWards Compatible with its predcessor`s games,PS ONE wich is very useful but PS2 is a different console and PS2`s Memory Card`s can`t save any PS ONE game(and PS1 Mem. Cards can not save PS2 games)So ide recommend that if you are buying PSX games for a PS2 to buy/Make-sure you have a PS ONE memory card if you i am concidering getting a PlayStation 1 Memory Card for my PS2 so i can save these PS1 games ime concidering buying;WWF In Your House,WWF WarZone,WWF SmackDown! 1,WWF SmackDown 2:Know Your Role!(I am a WWF/WWE fan),GTA1,GTA2,Driver 1 and Driver 2 and all of these games are popular and very fun to play thats Y ime gettin a PS1 Memory Card and And these games though PS2 games are more Fun now and better graphix.Only get a 8MB card if you have&play 8 games.JOHN CENA AND RANDY ORTON are the best WWE superstasrs!!!!1 ...

The Hard Disk Drive comes pre-installed with Square Enix's highly anticipated massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy XI.

    PlayStation2 with HDD and separately sold Network Adapter
    The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) slides into the back of the PS2. The separately sold Network Adapter attaches to the HDD.
    In Final Fantasy XI, PlayStation 2 and PC players can create communities, as well as alter-egos that can be completely customized by race, sex, nation of origin, trade skill specialties, and numerous other physical traits. These communities co-exist in the world of Vana’diel. Users can immerse themselves in an expansive, original storyline that eventually builds the world’s history. Vana’diel is made up of vast, never-ending environments with more than 100 areas to explore. It is composed of three unique nations--one of which players choose to inhabit--and once players start their adventure, they may congregate, chat and do battle with the forces of evil, creating Vana’diel’s history through these interactions. Communication tools have been incorporated into Final Fantasy XI to assist in interaction between players, including easy-to-use chat and messaging systems.

    3-0 out of 5 stars BIGGEST FINAL FANTASY FAN
    Let me start by saying that I'm a big, big, big Final Fantasy fan. I have played and beaten every single Final Fantasy game ever made. I say this because my review of this game is not great.

    The Good:
    The graphics: are great which is nothing out of this world for any final fantasy game since this series probably has the best graphics of any other.
    Online: You get to interact with players form all over the world, which is a good change since you are playing with real people for a change.
    Music: Also not strange that this is one of the better parts of the game.

    The Bad:
    Everything else.
    The whole game is about leveling your character. And this takes so, so, so long its ridiculous.
    The world is so big that getting form one place to another takes forever specially when you are in the beggining of the game. ITS HUGE.
    There is almos no story line here so you will probably spend 100 hours doing basically the same thing which is LEVELING.
    Once you manage to get to a decent level (45 and up) the game gets just a little intresting.
    You also spend such a long, long time getting the hang of skills such as fishing, or gardening or woodworking or things like this to get other things that you then have to sell at the auction house and wait more to get money to spend on better tools such as fishing rods and then spend a lot more time doing the skill.
    The most looked for character in the game in party play is a white mage but for this character, to get to a high enough level to start fighting in a party takes longer since they are not very powerful and they die easier because they don't have a lot of HP

    Anyway, I could go on and on and on and on about the bad things about the game. I guess there are certain people who have the time to play this game A LOT and like the online thing. For me it just didn't do it and I would sadly have to say that this is the worst game in the series. Which still makes it much better than most other games. You have to hold it to a higher standard since it is a Final Fantasy game.

    RECOMENDATION: If you are not used to online games, at this cost I recomend you find out what the game actually is by reading, asking friends or if you can by actually playing it. If you know how an online game is played such as everquest and you like it then this is a great game for you. If you like more of a story driven RPG like myself then don't for any possible reason buy this game, even if money is not an issue its just a waste of time.


    3-0 out of 5 stars *Getting Started
    Well I am currently new at the online gaming deal & trying to get set up with this Final Fantasy X1.I have the Playstaion2 thick version & finding out that you need one accessory after another just to start. I had to buy the new Hardrive& Fantasy Game version than the Network Adapter & than found out in order to keep from rebooting you will also need a router which i went with a Linksky's but still waiting to get it to hook up.I give the game 5 stars cause I know the game will be worth it,but i give overall three stars due to the complexity of just getting started....

    I called playstaion2 & they walked me through setting up the network adapter/Harddrive than got to the on screen keyboard & found out now i need to attach my computer keyboard to the USB port on the front of playstaion2. To my-luck my keyboard has a 6-pin din hook up and now it wont connect to the USb port, so now i am deciding between the keyboard adapters or just plain buying a USB keyboard cause the Adapters are as much as a keyboard.

    Now i find it very frustrating to have to buy all this additional accessories & feel that Sony could of made this a little easier to get started but if you want to play, you have to pay and they know this....My only fear is that once i get my router I know i will be in for more problems getting it set up and working with my DSL/playstaion2 but I only hope I dont have to buy anymore would of been cheaper just to buy the new playstaion2 version & then the Final FantsyX1 PCversion which is what i should of done to begin with.To avoid all this non-sense..

    All in all though I am looking forward to eventually getting started cause I am a "Final Fantasy" FAN & know it will be all worth it in the end....c-ya online soon

    5-0 out of 5 stars Humanity is so dumb sometimes
    1. this game is fantastic (this comes from an avid player of all FF games and video games in general).This mmoRPG is more of an RPG than any other game in the FF series.You play the ROLE of a character and have complete freedom.

    2. If you didn't know there was a monthly fee, you need to READ boxes and research items beore you buy them.

    3. If 13 dollars a month is too much for you get a job...Seriously people.Even with minimum wage in this country you can make 5 dollars an hour.That's 3 hours a month and this game is payed for.You people are DISGUSTINGLY lazy!!!I don't care how old you are (I started working when i was 14).This is NOTHING in comparison to the bills you people are going to have to pay when you a. start driving b. have to pay off a mortgage or even c. pay off student loans.

    4. don't complain if you haven't played the game for more than 1 month.

    5. I work full-time and play in a band and i STILL have time to level my character and enjoy the game thoroughly.I have a LVL 42 PLD and a LVL 38 WHM (although i only play the PLD now and am considering deleting the WHM).

    Anyways...yeah this game is incredible.I suggest it to anyone who has a sense of responsibilty and who would like to delve into the world of online gaming.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good, but be warned.
    Final Fantasy XI for PS2 is great, especially if you don't have a powerful enough computer to run Final Fantasy XI for Windows. However just a fair warning, and this isn't really stated clearly enough: YOU CANNOT USE THIS PRODUCT WITH THE NEW SLIM PS2!! Just in case you dont know or were wondering. It is not possible to hook up the HDD to the new PS2. So if you are interested in this game, it is well worth the money, but only get it if you have an older PS2 (SCPH-500XX or SCPH-390XX).

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but...expensive.
    This game is very fun.You can play with other people from Japan, U.S., Mexico, China, and more places in the world.If you don't want to see people from other countries, than you can just change your options.
    There are four countries.They are the republic of Bastok, the kingdom of San'doria, the federation of Windurst, and the grand duchy of Jeuno.
    There is racism also.The races are humes, elvaans, tarutaru, mithra, and galkas.In some of the races, you can choose to be either male or female.
    There are a ton of jobs.They are warrior, monk, white mage, black mage, red mage, thief, paladin, black knight, beastmaster, ranger, bard, summoner, samurai, ninja, and dragoon.When you first start the game, you can only choose the fist six jobs.The other jobs, you must earn by doing quests.
    There are some people that need help in Vana'diel.(Oh, and Vana'diel is the name of the world in which FFXI takes place at.)The people will tell you what to do.If you complete it, you will be rewarded of given nothing at all.(Don't worry!Most quests will give rewards.I only know one that does not.)The more quests you do, the more famous you become in the country and Van'diel.You're mog will even be happy.
    A mog is your so-called servant at your mog hour house.Your mog house is where you live in Vana'diel.To go to your mog house, all you do is step one foot into the residential area of a country.All countries in Vana'diel have residential areas.
    In FFXI, you can choose the country you want to serve as only at the beginning of the game.You choose any country you want to live at except for Jeuno.If you are not satisfied with your country, than you can apply for citizenship for a different country.You don't have to start the game all over again.For example, let's say you choose to be a mithra from Windurst.You want be a citizen of Bastok.All you do is go to Bastok, look for the federal area, and ask a lady for a citizenship application.It is not as hard as it sounds.
    You need money to survive in Vana'diel.The currency there is called gil.Gil can be obtained by completing quests, selling items, or defeating specific monsters.If some players are generous, they will give you gil.That is very rare, though.
    I could go on and on explaining but, there is no reason to.After a week or two, you will get the hang of it.You probably will also start making friends but, remember some stuff.
    1.Don't give away personal information such as your age, sex, address, phone number, or anything like that.
    2.Watch what you say!The Fianl Fantasy XIgame board people have some people playing the game looking for any mischief.This means that some players are actually supervisors.It is okay to use mild profanity but, don't use stong profanity.If you say something unfriendly to a person and they don't show up anymore, your game might be canceled.All I am telling you is watch what you say.
    3.Remember the warning "Game experience may change during online.You can't control other people.The game is rated "T" for animated blood, and violence.Some people might sing a song with bad words in it.
    The fees are high for this game.You buy what are calle "content ids."Content ids are what you use to make a character.You must pay for it.It cost 12.95 a month for FFXI and 1.00 a month for each one after the first one you purchased.You can purchase up to 16 content ids for FFXI.
    Not that many people talk about Tetra Master.Tetra Master is a card game that comes with FFXI.It is not that much fun.It is a magical weird way of "Yu-Gi-Oh!."You play with other players.
    I don't know which FFXI pack you should buy.The pc or PS2.The PS2 one is 99.88.The pc one is more than two-thirds cheaper.The problems here is memory and money.The PS2 version is more expensive than the pc version but, there is so much more memory available in the HDD.The pc version is cheaper but, memory here is the problem.FFXI takes up over 8,000 megabytes.That could cause a problem when it comes to installing new files.In any way or so, I suggest the PS2 version.
    I hope you make up your decision.The game is very fun.My character is a hume named Deene who's nationality is Bastokan.I hope to meet you in the game! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tekken 5
    I loved the game it was the best fighting game mony could ever buy if you don't have your lame.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The King Of Iron Tournament 5
    When Hon-Maru is destroyed, Somebody starts The King Of Iron Tournament 5. We all really like games like Tekken 5, But some play GameCube, XBox... Tekken 5 is the latest game or tournament. The characters in Tekken 5 are Nina, Anna, Baek, Xiayou, King, Marduk, Lee, Julia, Ganryu, Christie, Kzuya, Heihachi, Jin, Devil Jin, Mokujin, Wang, Kuma, Panda, Roger Junior, Bruce, Raven, Feng, Asuka, Paul, Law....

    The Story Battle is the most exciting game. It tells why these characters enter the Tournament 5. After you defeat, Jinpachi mishima, Heihachi's father, you unlock one of the character's movie. You also earn Fight Money to Cosdtumize your characters.

    The Arcade Battle is where the Ranking Matches and Demotion Riskes occurs. All you need to do is fight, fight.... I already became a Tekken Lord by using Nina Williams. Before you will be a Tekken Lord, you have to be promoted to 9th kyu, 8th kyu, 7th kyu, 6th kyu, 5th kyu, 4th kyu, 3rd kyu, 2nd kyu, 1st kyu, 1st dan, 2nd dan, 3rd dan, 4th dan, 5th dan, Shihan, Expert, Master, Virtuoso, Champion, Legend, Sage, Warlord, Conqueror, Deity and Tekken Lord. Very long right?. By the way, You can make your player name.

    The Practice Mode is where you do your moves, I always use Nina. They have 3 choices. Defense Training, Vs. CPU, Freestyle.

    The game is so perfect. Please buy it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars You should buy
    This in every way can be better than the other four. The fighting is better and the character custimazaion is good but not as good as virtua fighter. The characters are all better. There are some strange ones but that dosent matter it's still fun. Also the story is much better. But the boss is extremely diffucult and he is very cheap. But that hust takes a little practise to gt by. Also it adds acade history which fetures the first 3 tekkens. It is a very cool feature. And than Devi wiithin which is sorta like the privious Tekken force modes but it is its own story.

    So if you are like me and a huge fan of everything Tekken this will be a great piece to your collection it is worth it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great..!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Barnone the BEST FIGHTING GAME!!
    First of all, I have to say you cannot compare Tekken 5 to Virtua Fighter evolution, Tekken 5 is far superior! VFE is so boring and easy that it took me only 3 hours to totally beat the game in normal mode. Just 'coz you can't beat the Boss in tekken 5 means you can blast it.
    The Boss is tough, perhaps a cheater but that's the point! Finished the game.
    Hint: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BEAT THE DEVIL WITHIN MODE to get DEVIL JIN as a character. Just use jin a lot in medium mode and get his ranking in arcade mode to at least 1st DAN. If you breeze through the stages to get him ranked higher(perfect wins), you'll get him quicker.
    Tekken 5 RULES! Virtua Fighter was ok, Dead or alive is even better than virtua fighter evolution. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the better games.
    This game is amazingly fun and addicting. I started playing 2 or so years ago, and i'm still playing it. It will only take you a couple of weeks to reach Heavy Mode and maybe a month or 2 before you can beat MaxX UNLIMITED.
    To play this game, you step on the arrows on the dance pad corresponding to the arrows scrooling up the screen. Some songs are exceptionally fast (320 BPM: MaxX UNLIMITED), others are really slow (140 BPM: So Deep). The fast ones may seem impossible to read at first, but after some time, it'll be easier to read than a picture book.
    Personally, the hard songs are really easy over time. Believe it or not, i have "AAA"ed MAX 300, MaxX UNLIMITED, and The legend of MAX, and im one of the best players in Ohio.
    And by the way, if you go to buy the Japanese version of MAX2 or Extreme, have fun with PARANOiA Survivor MAX (Hardest song in DDR history) ;)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Much better than seditary gaming!
    I love this, I still don't understand how anyone can actually do the advanced levels (seems impossible to me).The thing that I'm not sure about is if it will save info for 2 players?Overall fun and a good workout for body and mind and spirit.

    1-0 out of 5 stars "Patrick Swayze Would have been proud of me"
    Last Friday, my aunt Chris and uncle Chris (no joking they have the same exact name; on a side note though, for laughs I like to call uncle Chris aunt Chris, lol)came into town to go to some formal dinner of some sorts with Mom and Dad. I was supposed to go to 9 Mile with Lyle and look at guitars with him but Mom and Dad said I had to baby-sit Chris and Chris's 12 year old daughter (my cousin) Trisha.

    She was kind of spoiled but that's what happens to most only children. Anywho, she brought over this new virtual reality game for the PS2 called Dance Dance Revolution 2. Whereas the point is to stand on these pads and, you guessed it dance. Lyle ended staying over to keep me company while bratty Trisha played with her High Brow toy. She ended up having two of those virtual reality pads so two people could play. When she offered, Lyle immediately stated, "NO WAY, those are strictly for girls and Asian guys", I quickly followed his lead to save face with him (he was a little irritated that we had to skip guitar browsing, so I didn't want to push it).

    Around 10:30 Trisha went to bed so Lyle and I watched Black Dog (a great Patrick Swayze movie, by the way), Lyle went to bed right after the movie ended, but I told him I wanted to stay up a little bit to practice my harmonica. After about 15 minutes when I thought he would be a sleep, I kind of betrayed him and turned on Dance Dance. I played and it grew on me really quick. Before I knew it, I was dancing like my feet were on fire. After about twenty minutes I thought how fun it would be to go head on head with someone else. Since I dared not to wake up Lyle or Trisha, I had an ingenious idea.

    What I did was I boxed in the second pad with the couch, loveseat, and chairs, then I tied a bog biscuit to a string and hung it from the light fixture above the pad. Then I woke up Morris (my dog) and did a quick grappling bout with him to riel him up. When I found him ready enough I put him in the furniture enclosure and showed him the dog biscuit. The match was on! We played straight for about a half-hour. I danced like there was no tomorrow while he jumped up and down trying to get the treat that was just inches from his grip. In the end I pretty much annilatted Morris, I think he only beat me like once.

    In conclusion, Virtual Reality is finally starting to show some promise. It's been a long road for it. I just hope the world can show the future generations of virtual reality the tolerance and acceptance that Morris, Trisha, and I have.

    Now at the Review writing section it asked me 2 questions.The first was "How much fun is this game?".Well thats easy.It is a Tuttleman approved 5 stars of fun.The second question was "How do you rate this game overall?".The problem is that I could never admit to Lyle that I actually liked this crazy contraption.Do you know how many cool points I would lose if Lyle knew I was (for one night only) a solid-gold lord of the dance with feet of fire!?ALL OF THEM.So I'm rating it 1 star over-all, just in case Lyle asks me what I rated it.That way I won't technically be lying to Lyle.Later.

    5-0 out of 5 stars DDR Rocks!
    This game is fun, addicting, and healthy for you! DDR Max 2 is well worth its price. Although most of the songs in it are not all that common, the music selection is still pretty good and I would recomend this game for any beginners in the world of DDR.

    It teaches you the basics and also allows you to choose harder options for those of whom are already hooked to the arcade version.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
    this is one of my favorite video games, you have fun and get fit at the sme time! I would recomend this for everyone who loves to "get down." ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Roll with a goal!!
    Upon hearing about this game, my knee-jerk reaction was that it would be the most boring game in existence.I mean, seriously, how fun can it be to roll around a ball, picking up various items along the way?!Apparently more fun than anyone anticipated (judging by others' reactions and ratings)!

    Other reviewers have been doing a great job describing the goal of the game; that of rolling around a sticky ball (katamari) and picking up progressively larger items.Once you get the katamari a certain size (as determined by what mission, stage, level you're on) the King of the Cosmos turns your katamari into a star or constellation.

    What many of the reviewers seem to have missed is the goal of each level.The overarching theme is to make stars and constellations, in order to restore all of the stars to the sky.However, each level has specific nuances.For instance, when trying to make the constellation Taurus, the goal is to pick up the largest cow you can find.Additionally, you may want to try working on making the constellation of Gemini.In this level you need to try and pick up two (a pair) of each item.Your score is then calculated for however many pairs you have.

    The game is fantastic, simple (in controls and purpose), but still challenging... with time limits to produce a certain-sized katamari.I do not own this game, and have only played it once, but I guarantee that I will be purchasing this game in the near future!It's a great game.Give it a chance!I think you'll like it!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Humorous, infectuos and weird
    So, you are pint sized prince who rolls katamari, a ball that everything sticks to. As things stick to katamari, ball grows and larger are the objects that you can merge with katamari. Almost all levels are time trial (I dislike time trials) and you have a size ball must reach, so you roll around and learn what levels look like in order to make katamari grow faster. All levels are medium or easy, except Poland.

    Game is logical, which we haven't seen in a long time, and it is really attractive: imagine rolling 5 cm big katamari to pick up nuts and batteries in the beginning of the level and , after some time, rolling katamari big enough to pick up people, cars, buildings, and , finally, clouds and rainbows.

    There should be a sequel soon, and I'd like to see levels that are different visually (Saudi Arabia looks like Russia). Some levels could have special restrictions, like it is forbidden to roll people, some levels should have interesting geometry, let's say sliding down the street or possibility to roll down the roller coaster. It would also be nice to have more levels with large katamari, and more levels in general.

    The main reason game got 4 stars is camera...but, BUY! Game is weird but also really fun to play!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars ????????????? But FUN!
    the developers of this game were obviously on an overdose of every drug ever created! This is the wierdest game i have ever and ever will play in my entire life! But in a good way . . . the game actualy has shadow of brilliance combined with block and and solid objects. The game however is VERY fun! which makes me wonder about drugs . . . (just kidding, drugs are bad!)all ages will find a whimsical joy in this odd, fun, and blurry brilliance. Its a bragain, u have no excuse!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fun, Fun!
    This is a great game for anyone, no matter the age.
    If you can use the Playstation controller, you can play this game.

    Plenty of others have given good descriptions of it, so I just wanted to echo a 5 star review.

    If you have kids, you will be playing right along with them, I'm sure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tripped Out
    I first played this game at a buddies house and was hooked on of all things, the tunes.Basically this game is like the others have said - the stars are gone and it's the son of the King of Cosmos' job to put them back to the sky, and re-create the constellations.So, the son goes to earth and with a ball called a Katamari, he rolles up anything from ants to skyscrapers so that a giant ball of stuff they can be elevated into the sky and turned into stars.

    The thing about this game that's so addictive are the little challenges to it and finding different things that you missed the first 4 times you rolled on a level.You wind up enjoying watching others play it because you look at the details of all the objects that are around you in the game - and how impressive it is!(the amount of detail)The gameplay to this is simple and fun - one of my friends likened rolling the ball to driving the Warthog in Halo 2; not so bad of an analogy.But that's all you really need - you don't use the buttons really or anything else; just the analog sticks, which make it a game that almost anyone can play and enjoy.

    Definitely recommend it.I enjoyed the game and the tunes in the game were cute if anything else.Try not to think too much of the 'plot' of the game... there really isn't one although there is a small story to carry along which is more of a gag for the tripped out herb heads.But this really is a pretty easy game that you can just pop in, take your mind off things, and play.I guess my only gripe would be that it wasn't very long at all... even though I wound up playing it for about 3 hours straight when i got it.Check it out! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Technical problems keep it from being great
    Advent Rising was announced a few years ago as the first in a trilogy that was epic in scope.It has all the workings of a great project as well.The original story began in the director's mind and he knew it would be such a grand story that he enlisted the help of notable sci-fi scribe Orson Scott Card to help work the script.Card worked on the script, getting the dialogue right and also assisted with the overall story.On top of an excellent author, they employed an orchestra and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to perform.All of these should spell out to be a recipe for sucess.And it does, sort of.

    What holds this game back from glory are the myriad of technical issues.To begin with, the game is beautiful.Graphic-wise, it reminds me of Halo 2.Halo 2 had no loading after the initial load and the graphics, while nice, suffered at times from having to be rendered quickly.The same goes for Advent Rising.In fact, while you are watching a cutscene, the game is busy loading the next sequence.What this does is put a tremendous strain on the engine.If the engine is strong, it shouldn't pose much problem.But, unfortunately, this sometimes spells disaster for Advent Rising.

    The first 40 minutes of the game did not give me a great first impression.During the training sequences, the game locked up three times.I had to replay the same sequence about 4 times to get through it simply because I did something the game didn't like and it froze.The game auto-saves onces you hit certain check points and if you have to reset the game, you're starting back over from the beginning of the checkpoint.Things became much better as the game progressed and I don't remember the game freezing again.

    Added to the lock ups, the game stutters when there's too many things going on at once.I don't mean when little things are happening, I mean when you have a squad of 3-4 people on your team shooting at 4-6 enemies and there's two drop ships coming in and launching missles that explode with huge flames.When that happens, the game's audio begins to "click," the frame rate drops very noticeably and things become a bit annoying.But again, this only really happens when there's a ton going on.

    Unfortunately, more technical issues abound.Namely in the sound.With the beautifully orchestrated music pounding, the screams of people fleeing certain destruction, the explosions, the lazers tearing apart buildings, you'd expect to have a lot of sound.Unfortunately, in the cutscenes the sound tends to be muted.To give you an example, on my surround sound receiver (which the game supports by the way), I usually keep the sound at 10-11 for a decent, full sound that doesn't also piss off my neighbors.For this game, generally I have to have the sound on at 16-17 and it's still muted.I know the reason is probably because the game is loading the next scene and the engine is faltering because of it.

    A love it or hate it device is used for targeting.Called "flick targeting," you use the right stick to change between your targets, effectively "flicking" it in their general direction to lock onto them.For those who use their right stick to change the camera constantly, like me, this can take some time to get used to.But, if you can train yourself not to change the camera as much will find it works pretty well.Where it can get into a problem is when you are trying to run from the enemy to get to cover.When this happens, and you try to reorient the camera to find some place to run, it can become frustrating to continually lock onto targets.Also, when you receive your power to levitate objects, this becomes even more of a hindrance as you not only lock onto enemies now but also moveable objects.Click the right stick (R3 button) helps with this problem because it releases the camera but it still causes moments of annoyance.Honestly, though, it's a great system to handle more than one enemy at a time.

    At the heart of the game, past all of the technical problems and targeting woes is a great story.The beginning of the story with the Seeker's attack of your home world reminded me of what Halo 2 was missing.Here we saw devastation on your homeworld, we fought on the homeworld and it generally stressed the feeling of your world at risk.From there, it's an epic event after epic event as the seekers cause untold problems, a few plot twists occur and a few deaths propel our protagonist toward his goal.It's a great story and the dialogue is terrific, bring to mind movie quality.The voice actors are a charm to listen to, and there are a couple funny moments.Card's influenced can be seen everywhere.In fact, I was waiting for the main characters to break out in a discussion of Varelese and Ramen in terms of aliens (read the Ender's series if you didn't get that).

    For all that's good in this game, and there's plenty do not get me wrong, I feel semi-disappointed.This game has been pushed back countless times.Mostly, it's been pushed back to help fix the frame rate issues, and other technical problems I've noted.And so when the game was finally released I was shocked when the very things that made it miss release date upon release date were still causing problems.What is most annoying is that we are this far in the Xbox development cycle and bugs abound.We are currently waiting for Xbox 360 to come out and countless games have been made that are more beautiful and less buggy than this game.It's disappointing to see that even this far into the Xbox life problems are still occuring.Maybe the game was too grand for the Xbox and should have been an Xbox 360 launch title.Whatever the case, this game is really good, regardless of the problems.If you can overlook the technical issues above, you will find not only a good game, but a good game with a heart.And that's hard to find today.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Fun Epic Sci Fi Shooter ,Flawed But Fun.
    Advent Rising is a third & first person shooter that is a fast pace Sci-Fi Epic like gaming experience that is best desribed as a star wars/halo2 mix. But Advent Rising is still a unique game in its own right. You play in 1st & 3rd person which can be changed while playing. There are about 11 different weapons ranging from ballistic to the alien variety & they all have great response,sound,& power. You are able to equip & fire from both hands by using both triggerssimular to halo2 ,&most weapons have alternate fire modes. You can perform Melee attacks & will get advanced melee's as you progress in mastery levels 1-5.The Mastery Level is a reward system ,as you use a weapon or power you will automaticly gain level ups such as more damage or better accuracy,also it'll open up alternate fire modes on special power & weapons you can gain up to 5 levels on all weapons & powers.You eventually will aquireSpecial Powers simular to force powers in star wars games. These powers include LEVITATE ,which gives you the ability to levitate enemies & shoot them in mid air ,also liftinanimate objects &you can also throw enemies off cliffs, SURGE which is a type offorce push to damage enemies & if you hold trigger for a stronger surge blast,NEGATE which gives you the ability to make a shield & its advanced stages you are able to put up multiple sheilds ,4 when maxed out,alternatly you can carry a shield ,AEON PULSE which gives you the ability to shoot pulses from your hands in which damages the enemy, TIME SHIFT which gives you the abilty to warp time & attack enemy at a great speed which causes alot of damage to enemy,it basicly looks like a quick sprint into the enemy ,kinda like a running charge at a blurring speed,& finally SHATTER which you can shoot ice shards, which look more like blue spheres on screen, & its advanced stages can freeze an enemy. All Weapons & Powers also have (alternate) modes of fire & powers in which becomeavailable as you advance in mastery levels 1-5. All powers use energy but as you gain mastery levels you will use less energy.You automaticly are awarded the power ups as you fight or use powers,you can look in your weapons & powers menu to see there effects.You have different vehicles to drive that resemble halos warthog, & there is an enemy alien tank that looks quite good. The land vehicle (scythe) 4x4 ,is very responsive & has verystrong boost power. You can also operate anti-air turrets when available.For the most part your on foot.This game is a pure 1st & 3rd person shooter with an added very helpful force type super powers, these powers arent thrown in just for fun or looks you'll definalty use them & need them alot, I found myself prefering to use the force type powers more & morein the later stages ,because in Advent Rising the more you use anything the stronger it gets with the mastery level up system.You can equip a power to one hand & a weapon to the other hand for an endless array of good combinations ,or you could just use the powers ,whatever works for you.The graphics are good & they get better as you advance in the game, but I do have a "S" cable so keep that in mind.Overall Advent is a very fun game ,but could use some polishing up on a few things. The targeting system is a little herky-jerky .You use the right analog stick to change & hone in onto targets . Adversly you also use the right analog for the camera pan & tilt. Things makes things a little unbalanced when in a firefight as sometimes when you are trying to look into a certain direction the targeting ring will lock onto a different target than you intended. But I had no serious problems that hampered my game experince with the targeting system . I think it would have been better to have a cleaner smoother targeting system or even a free form target system like most first & third person shooters have. But you can adjust the Targeting systems sensitivity in the options menu.There is also alot of slow down when the screen gets full & on one occasion the sound got messed up. But even with these game flaws Advent Rising is still a very fun shooter with nice level detail which is 95% linear but still very EPIC movielike in design. I noticed there are some simularities to halo2 in the design of some of the levels in Advent,with vast open spaces & the like.But dont let me mislead you Advent shouldnt be compared to HALO2 .Id say Advent is a loose mix between a star wars type game & halo2. The cutscenes are nicley done with Greatstory content & good voice acting & there are a ton of clips to be seen. Advent gameplay is good but when the framerates slow down ,which is often,is gets stiff. And the camera could be a little smoother,but your still able to see in (3-d) all directions like other 1st & 3rd person shooters. But even with all of these flaws Advent is still a very fun shooter.I beat the game on Normal difficulty in 3 days ,the story was very good ,just make sure to watch the entire CREDITS because at the end there's a surprise Boss battle with another ending & it definatly opens up for the sequel. You have 4 difficulty settings Easy,Normal,Hard,& Ultra. Its a fairly challenging game thats not too easy ,& not too hard ,but you can change difficulty while your playing to suit your needs.Its a very good start to a game series ,hopefully with some fine tuning ,sequels to this game will take note of gamers comments & improve on it. In a nutshell Advent Rising is kinda like watching a very good Epic movie storyline while you get to partake in being the star.Advent Rising is a fun overall Sci-Fi gaming experience regardless of its flaws. Definalty Worth Playing.Im looking forward to the sequel.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Advent Rising- The Beginning of a Legacy
    Advent Rising is the first in the Advent Trilogy. This is a great start for a franchise that is sure to have people talking for a long time. The game does have it's glitches, but they seem small and unimportant compared to the game's great aspects. I am really suprised by the low scores that have been given by IGN, GameSpot, etc. I think this trilogy will be a compelling, original experience, that will have it's fair share of glory before it is through.

    First, I want to state that Tommy Talarico Studios has done a phenomenal job with the music. The music was what really brought together the whole experience for me. When the humans started to be attacked, I got a real sense of tragedy that only great music can deliver. Throughout the entire game, I was drawn in by the simple, yet effective, melodies. Advent Rising has some of the best audio of this year.

    The next thing I want to talk about is the story. You play Gideon Wyeth. The younger brother of renowned captain, and playboy, Ethan Wyeth. The story is that you and your brother are to escort an ambassidor onto an alien shuttle, so that your races can become allies. The aliens, who are called Aurelians, warn you that the Seekers are coming to destroy the humans. The story draws you in so quickly, that you will find it hard to put the controller down, even to go to the bathroom. Some of the cinematics are very long. Advent Rising compensates for this by letting you pause during the cinematics, and letting you skip them, or restart it, but I digress. Back to the story. Very early in the game, you are faced with a tough decision. Both your brother Ethan, and your fiance Olivia are injured. You can only save one. It makes little difference in the end who you choose, but I found the outcome very sad.

    Next comes the gameplay. This game is very interesting, because it is kind of a Third Person Action Shooter RPG. Let me explain. There are a variety of elements in the game, that keep it diverse and fun. The RPG element comes into play, when you have used a weapon or ability so much, that you become more proficient in the skill. Later in the game, you learn from Kehlem, an Aurelian, how to levitate objects. You gain different unerthly skills throughout the game, which you can become more proficient in.

    Overall, Advent Rising is amazing. It is an original, fun, and extraordinary experience. The stunning visuals, beautiful music, and compelling gameplay, come together to deliver a refreshment from the same old games. This is a sure contender for game of the year. Advent Rising is the first in a trilogy that will take the gaming world by storm.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Game, but has a few bugs
    I am a 24 year old gamer and feel this game is truly unique.It is nothing like Halo except that you are human killing aliens.The game is beautiful constructed and the storyline is captivating--it vaguely reminds me of star wars.I recommend at least renting this game if not buying it.

    The only problem with the game is that at certain times your character jams.For example:You use one of your super powers and you float into the air, but then never come back down.It can be very frustrating.Plus the aimng system is very touchy and at times you lose where you are shooting.

    With all said, It is a great game and should not be over looked.Rent it at least.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A little buggy, but tons of fun!
    I was mesmerized by my first glimpses of the game and had been waiting patiently for Advent Rising to come out.I was overjoyed when it finally hit the shelves, but became bit worried when when I read a few reviews before the fact, and found their verdicts to be mediocre at best, poor at worst.Undaunted, I bought the game to see for myself, and personally, I wasn't disappointed.The storyline, which pits humankind as a race of myth, destined to save the universe against the Seekers, a race that is bent on destroying them(and written by the great Orson Scott Card, no less) keeps you riveted, wondering what is going to happen next; the music is a top-notch orchestral work of beauty, and the gameplay is fast, intuitive, and pulls you in. However, the negative points will severely turn off some more nitpicky gamers, in that there is a major bug in the realm of frame rate.Some areas of intense battle slow down severely, and subtract from the experience.
    Also, there is a problem with the targeting system in that it is EXTREMELY tricky and twitchy, switching from one enemy from another at the drop of a hat, and losing sight of the main character in intense combat moments.This can be frustrating, but like the frame rate problem, can be overlooked.Also, the sheer amount of obvious work and love put into the game makes up for these problems.
    As it is the first in a planned trilogy, those problems hopefully will be addressed in the later games.All in all, Advent Rising is a game well worth its money, and plagued by overly harsh reviews.I say give it a try; if you're a bit nervous about it, rent it first and see.Aside from the framerate and targeting system, the game is a masterpiece, and like other reviewers have said, NOT to be compared to Halo.If its two major problems had been addressed properly, however, I believe that reviewers would have been kinder to it.But it is a game not to be snubbed for its shortcomings.It's tons of fun and a worthy addition to anyone's Xbox library. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great game and workout!
    This is my first time ever playing ddr. I have read several reviews on how people got into shape playing this game because it was so much fun and addicting. They were right! The only complaint I have about this bundle pack, when I bought it, the salesperson said it came with the eye toy. I was sooo disapointed to find out it didn't. My sister works in a music store where they sell the bundle pack, and she also thought that it came with the eye toy due to misleading advertising. In the fine print it says sold seperately. The makers of this game need to make it more clear that it does not come in the pack.

    I got this game today. It did not cost me much. My brother and I had to pay thirty dollars each. Anyway, I like this game. It's pretty fast. I have not been to weight loss mode yet, but I heard it's cool from the other reviews.
    Hope you enjoy this toy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Some good, some bad.But fun overall.
    I play dance games a lot.I own all the console games and think this is one of the better mixes for PS2.I'll go over the pros and cons catagorically...

    Graphics:The graphics are nice for a PS2 DDR game.However, I have been playing DDR Extreme in the arcades for a couple years now and the graphics are not the same.If you go to Japan, this is the same overall graphics as DDR Festival.

    Music:The music is top notch despite several cover songs that were used in Karaoke Revolution.

    Scoring:The scoring is now back to the way 5th Mix in the arcades handled the points.This would be ok if this game didn't have the Extreme moniker on it.

    Gameplay:Gameplay is excellent, but I have a gripe in the song selection menu...Non-stop and challenge modes are available, but are always selectable in the song selection menu.In other words, you can play everything up to your last stage and STILL choose to play a non-stop or challenge course.In the arcade, challenge and non-stop mode are available at the difficulty selection screen for good reason.

    For the normal person who is just getting into the DDR craze, this is a good stepping stone.For those who are hardcore DDR players, this is still a good investment.You may be just a little let down however.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Never Bored
    I got this gift as a Christmas present. I play it just about every single day. There are so many different modes, characters, and songs that you can unlock. You have fun while playing, excercising, and dancing.

    When I play I don't even seem to notice the time. The dance pad is excellent, and still is in the condition it was when I opened it. I've had no concerns with this product what so ever. It's very entertaining to have a couple of friends over and challenge eachother.

    The songs are great, and there are so many different sorts to choose from. There are slow, fast, extremely fast, and medium song melodies. If you're stuck inside on a rainy day or something, and you still want to excercise, play this.

    It even has a Workout mode where you can keep track of your weight, and what it seems you've moved to after each session of DDR.

    Overall, this is one of the greatest games.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great exercise!
    After playing this game at a friend's house, my son wanted it so bad he paid for it with his own money.He plays it almost everyday and it has become a great form of exercise for him. This is one video game that I really enjoy watching him play! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Blasting Illegal Aliens Has Never Been More Fun
    I didn't expect much from this game; I thought it would be a poorly manufactured bunch of crap like the "Run Like Hell" PS2 game that was coughed up months ago.I was wrong.

    Overall, it was well designed and fun to play.There were lots of checkpoints and the on-screen arrows of my next destination was extremely helpful.I only wish my actions could've determined the fate of my compadres.In the beginning, I could let them do all the fighting while I hide in the corner like a sissy and save my ammo.I didn't use my mutant abilities that much, as it didn't really appeal to me.The difficulty level went from easy, to fair, to ridiculously hard in the missions where you fought the Grays.I almost quit playing because it just seemed unfair to take on countless enemies.Persistence was the key, along with a little luck.I give it 4 1/2 stars!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most amazing graphics i have ever seen in a game
    This is probably the best first person shooter to come out for ps2. I like this better then both halos. Its fun, scary, challenging, and crazy cool. And o yea did i mention the graphics they are very nice, and are much better then halos graphics. I wouldnt reccomend this for little kids though, it has tons of curses and is very gory one guy gets his head ripped off and they show it. Overall i think it is an amazing game if your thinking about getting it GET IT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Area 51 is creepy, fun and addicting
    This is one of the best FPS games I've ever played (Halo was the best). The only thing I don't like is that the game is kind of short. It's pretty long, but still short, I love games that take a long time to complete so it mught be just me.

    The one thing i love is that the blood stays the whole time and doesn't disapear, it's so much more realistic. The gore is great. It's not overload, but when you hit something blood comes out, so it's just perfect, not too much, not too little.

    THe people who do the voices are great. David duchovny sounds exactly like he would if he were actually the guy in the game, and Marilyn Mason is the creepy voice that Edgar has.

    This game is also creepy. There's a lot of dark places, so you use your flashlight often. The only bad thing is when you reload in a dark place, your flashlight is hidden by your arm and you cant see if youre in a big battle. the scariest thing is when you walk around a dark corner and an enemy jumps down from the ceiling.

    THis is one of the funnest games ive ever played and the storyline is creative and is intriging.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great concept, good game
    I have long anticipated this titles release, and i wasnt dissapointed that i paid about 50 dollars for it before i even rented it. For the playstation version, which i have, it has great graphics, especially in the campaign mode. There are a few problems, some of which can be easily fixed. You are started with an inverted view, meaning you move up when you press to go down, which is easily changed in options. Next, it takes the longest time to get online because you have to go through multiple downloads and sign-ons. When you get online, there is relatively no lag, but there is an odd points system that makes little or no sense at all. There are some really interesting game modes, my favorite being the last human mode where you try not to be mutated by the "chosen one" and his victims.

    The campaign however, is the best part. It isn't short by any means because i can normally beat them in most games in a few weeks. Even at easy, it is fairly challenging. It has a well thought out plot line, very well thought out. It has very well placed check points and easy combat interface. The campaign will stretch your mind and poke at your problem solving abilities as there are many places that need further examination to pass on.

    There are a good diverse group of enemies, each type being harder and appearing at specific levels in the game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must for FPS fans
    Well where do I start?Just like the game there are so many fun twists and turns that it's hard to pick out a good spot to start talking about this game.Anyway the storyline is your HazMat Specialist Ethan Cole, who is with HazMat Team Bravo, sent into the treacherous Area 51 compound to find out what exactly happened and why did HazMat Team Delta go missing.Once you step into the base things go from bad, to worse, then to just downright ugly and hellish.

    I am a huge FPS and shooter fan, and have played the original Area 51 and Area 51: Site 4 arcade machines.When I heard Midway was coming out with a FPS Area 51 game I couldn't wait.As soon as I got it and popped it into my PS2, I was immersed from the start.The graphics are jaw-dropping and the fluidity of the character movements were just downright smooth as hell.The action is far from lax too.From the get go you're thrusted into the mayhem that the mutated inbatitants of the base throw at you.Mutants, leapers,and later on in the game Cloned Human Spec Op soldiers, come at you out of nowhere at the most unexpected moments of the game, thus making you stay on your toes and making your finger hover over the R1 button at all times.Bottom line:You just never know when something will come at you from around the corner of a hallway.

    The plot and the story of the game itself is great also.Conspiracy theories, plot twists, and sudden changes in the game that will shock you will keep any gamer from putting down that controller, yes it is THAT good.I can't say much about it because I don't want to spoil anything, but I can surely say that you will always be surprised at what occurs during the game as you make your way down through the base.In Area 51 you'll always want to find out what happens next.

    Of course, no FPS is complete without a set of AI controlled teammates.But sometimes those teammates hamper you more than help you.In Area 51, these teammates actually give you cover fire, shout at you where enemies are coming from, and actually shoot to kill and not just weaken enemies for you.

    What about controls?Controls are a snap to learn and easy to use.Nothing too complicated here.

    The voice acting is an excellent point too.David Duchovny plays the role of Ethan Cole real well, giving the gamer the impression that yes Cole may seem like a soft-spoken HazMat specialists, but can sure prove his worth during battle.And Marylin Manson compliments Edgar real well.I feel that Manson does the job right by voicing the creepy looking Edgar and giving the game a chilling feel everytime his character speaks in the game.

    Overall I love this game and the action is second-to-none and I feel that this is 50 bucks well spent.If you're a FPS fan or a fan of the Area 51 series, I highly suggest you buy this game.You won't be sorry, and chances you won't leave your PS2 until you finally complete the game.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Like Putting money in Acid.
    I am a HUGE Metal Gear Solid fan, and I have every Metal Gear Game.I thought woah a new Metal Gear Game.So I got it, I didnt want to play it for an hour.It is reduced to a card game,a pethetic card game, and the story lines take you about 50 minuts.This is mostly reading, not a game.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Metal Gear Ac!d, A different Direction
    I am a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, the three titles are easily my favorite PS games, so when I picked up AC!D, I was certainly hoping for something similar. I knew the game was turn based and used cards, It was still something quite foriegn to get used to. The other thing that disapointed me was the lack of cut scenes and voice acting, although I understand the PSP just can't muster the power for them all. Even with my initial disapointment though, I was suprised to find how fun this card based game was. Be warned though, there is quite a learning curve. The first true mission took me easily 30 minutes, but from there the level completion times lowered. It's strangly addictive, to the point where I take it to school (I'm currently a Highschool student) and play it during the passing periods. The "cut scene" animations (they're drawings with subtitles) are extreamly detailed, and very impressive. Overall, this game is certainly a good fix for any Metal Gear Solid fan, or for anyone who wants an action/turn based game.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Metal Gear Tactics
    Final Fantasy Tactic meets Metal Gear meets Yugio. Everybody out there who have played the previos Metal Gear games will probably shy away from this title simply because it's a card based stragety/stealth game. The game is turn based, you must use your "cards" to move around the levels, use weapons, and interact with the environment. The gameplay itself is sometimes difficult and some of the missions are really, really, long. On a ligher note Snake is the main character, and you can customize your deck with over 200 unique cards to choose from. the starter deck give your about 30 cards to start with, but as you progress your deck allowance increases and you can buy cards, and unlock cards by finding the hidden packages in the levels. Wi-fi multipler is a plus to, allowing you to pit your deck against your friends and to trade cards.
    In conclusion this game is a new unique look at the Metal Gear world. I would only suggest this for hardcore Metal gear fans, and tactics junkies might enjoy this as well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good not perfect
    when i first heard that metal gear was coming to the psp i was exited like every metal gear fan was when i played it i was expecting the same gameplay from the old games,but they turned into an rpg sort of despite that the game was good but if they kept the gameplay the same it would have been perfect so i would reccomend this game.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A breakthrough in genres?
    You must understand that this game is COMPLETELY UNLIKE the fast-paced, nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat action that has defined the series and revolutionized the stealth genre.

    If you are expecting a handheld version of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, you will be sorely disappointed.

    However, if you enjoy the strategy of card-game mechanics like Magic the Gathering, and like the idea of mixing this smoothly with a turn based strategy like Final Fantasy Tactics, all with the standard stealth gameplay the Metal Gear series is famous for, then you'll find the recent iteration quite satisfying.

    You have a "deck" you build before each mission which you draw from during gameplay.You "hold" 6 cards that each contain separate actions which you can "play" to perform the actions you would normally associate with the Metal Gear Franchise.You draw 2 cards from your premade and shuffled deck at the beginning of each of your turns.Management of the cards becomes more and more important as the game progresses and you are rewarded with new and "rare" cards which become available to your deck-building if you perform missions stealthily (not being spotted) or efficiently (not having to kill anyone) or quickly.Also packs are scattered and hidden in many locations which encourages exploration.

    Enemy soldiers pace the playfield which is mapped in a grid as you dodge their patrols.They do this in "turns" which cycles through until it is your "turn" to act.You can flatten up against the wall and "knock" to draw their attention to make movement around them easier.You can "crawl" under vehicles or through crawl-spaces to avoid detection.You can set traps with Claymore mines, toss grenades, fire silenced Socoms, perform special attacks with rare character cards.200 cards in all allow for a wide spectrum of strategies for you to custom build your decks.

    Time management becomes crucial as you spend "time points" (strangely called "cost") for the time needed to perform the action noted on each card.Some of these cards provide time management support which reduces the demand in time that each card's action may take.There are cards which also increase the number of actions you may perform on each turn, but will leave you wanting to draw more than 2 cards quickly if you're not careful.

    The 2 player option allows you to WiFi challenge a buddy in a strategic, stealthy, card-based face-off to the death.

    If this sounds tedious to you, steer clear of this game!This is not the game for you!

    If you enjoy Turn-based Strategies and enjoy card-based mechanics and deck-building, you will really enjoy this game! ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A droning and lifeless series continues
    Koei has made several games for the series Dynasty Warriors, 7, if I remember correctly. The games in the series and Koei's new Samurai Warriors series have all been very fun games. However, so many games in this line have been made, the series is becoming stale.

    The entire game is some linear button-smashing killfest where you run to enemies for them to attack you, such horrendous AI. You fight along an army, however the soldiers rarely attack and are quite stupid. It is impossible for your allies to really do anything and to win the battle, you seriously have to design some quick, blitzkrieg battle 'strategy' to kill the enemy commander by cutting a thin line in the enemy troops. True, killing masses of enemy drones around you is fun, but it just gets old rapidly.

    In each series, there is a sort of graphic improvement and is a large factor in my favor of a game. There is a better storyline for your character, another major factor for me. There are also many bodyguard options, that is rare for this series. You can also learn some history from the events which this game is based on, but there are several inconstincies in the story and I found it much better if you want this information, to buy a cheap book, this story is popular in China.

    Still, this game is a complete disappointment. The sound is awkward, the gameplay is old, and there is little the preivious games did not have. Someone who continuously buys the games in this series and still is addicted to this game has a very weak taste in gameplay.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Dynasty REPEAT
    DW. 2, 3, 4, all great. But this is the same hack n' slash gameplay we've seen! I'm sick of this game! I could buy DW 4 and save some damned money!!! I'll leave it at this. It's like watching the same movie over and over and over and over and over and over and over again! The camera angles sometime get annoying. If your a DW fan, pick it up, otherwise, this game isn't going to turn you into one.

    3-0 out of 5 stars More dumb fun, but a bit hackneyed now...
    CAVEAT: I love the DW series, having purchased all of them (even the original for PS1). I love this game as well, although it seems to be the most shallow of the bunch.

    48(!) characters join the fray this time as you once again take control of a personality of the time of the Three Kingdoms and do battle with your nemeses. Each character has their own storyline, complete with events seen only in that character's story (this is a plus, as it was quite tedious to fight through each kingdom multiple times in order to see all the characters in DW4). Weapons no longer need to be upgraded (another plus), and orbs are now rare items found by playing on hard mode. A "chaos" mode has been added, and it is NOT for the faint of heart (the difficulty is more like Very Hard mode in DW3:XL, as opposed to DW4:XL, but no one drops any meat buns!). The graphics are much better in this installment, and True Musou is actually more valuable than Musou in this game.

    However, this game suffers from the same slowdown issues as the previous games (which is really unforgivable now, as this is the same game engine that has been used for six previous installments of DW). The siege weapons are even more useless here than in DW4 (unfortunate, since I thought that this could add a bit of depth to the strategy portion of this game). The camera is incredibly frustrating (not as much as, say, Samurai Warriors, but it's still pretty bad). Character balance is rather poor, though not as bad as previous installments (Lu Bu and Zuo Ci are incredible, Zhang Jiao and Meng Huo are horrible, the rest are OK). While large battlefields are nice, the game is frustrating until you obtain a horse saddle (another rare item).

    All in all, I love the game. Why 3 stars? Well, I'm trying to diminish my bias. The fact is, if you are a fan of these games, you've probably already purchased this. If you didn't like the others, you won't like this one. And if you have never played a DW game before, this is probably the best of the lot. Still, I would have enjoyed a bit more originality and variety in this one (really, it plays exactly like DW2, which is five years old).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Huge leaps and bounds, major improvements in gameplay.
    I had most definitely not expected this.I had a love/hate relationship with Dynasty Warriors 4, and Dynasty Warriors 4:Empires was so bad that I popped in for two days and then sold it off.Dynasty Warriors 5, however, seems determined to correct every flaw about the two above games and the results are surprisingly impressive.

    DW4:Empires was a stinker to me because of endlessly respawning enemy generals, a tiresome "stronghold" system, worthless allies, and an inability to build up your fighters since they start at Level 1 at every new game.Much to my delighted surprise, all of the above problems were fixed.

    - The gameplay is now a hybrid of DW4 and Empires where enemy generals stay dead when you kill them (thank heaven), checkpoints and supply bases can be realistically captured without having to wait at one location for 10 minutes to defend it against endless enemies.The system of taking down enemy supply bases works very well; you actually see a marked turning of the battle in your favour as you proceed.
    - No more levels where you kill a dozen enemy generals only to have a single, artificially enhanced enemy reinforcement pop up next to your commander to ruin your game.Your commander is no longer a dummy that can die with a poke.Obviously, this allows you to do more fighting and less running around saving your allies' butts.
    - Fighter training is back (which was impossible in Empires), though a little more difficult than before because now your weapon doesn't go up in levels at the same time the character does; you have to find these weapon items while playing the levels, and the quality of weapons you find is proportionate to the difficulty of the level.Tougher than DW4, but manageable, and the system is logical enough.
    - The biggest surprise:Allied AI became far, far superior.DW4 players will remember this hyper-annoying situation where if you slaughter every one of the enemies except their commander, your allied soldiers will run towards the commander like idiots, not attacking, and pushing the commander around so much that you can't get at him.That is, happily, history.Allied generals are now almost as skillful as enemy generals, and your bodyguard (now only one, rather than a team of eight at once) is now very helpful, aggressively attacking, healing themselves and you, getting you out of jams.About time!
    - Happily, they kept the control system from Empires so that now you can fully control where your combos face.This was like a breath of fresh air.Now if you miss a hit, it is indeed your own fault, and not the computer messing you up.
    - Marginally better voice work.Some of the changes in voice actors were for the worse -- Zhou Yu, Cao Cao and Lu Bu had good voices in DW4; now they sound silly.And new character Xing Cai is abysmal, sounding like a six-year-old reciting bad dialogue.But the overall quality of voice work has improved, with fewer stiff deliveries.Diao Chan, Yue Ying, Sun Ce, and Lu Meng all sound far better than before, and Jiang Wei's character lost that horrible accent and is now quite nice to listen to.
    - Improved graphics.Seems like they added some shadowing, and the look is now more textured, a little grittier.
    - Improved map design.You still have to do some running around, but aside from the labyrinthine "Battle of Chen Cang" level, no more levels like that insufferable He Fei map from DW4, where you had to run along the length of the map six to seven times to beat the level.
    - The "peons" -- enemy footsoldiers -- are more numerous and less hard to kill.The later soldiers in DW4 were so hardy they were tiresome to fight; no such problem here, at least at Normal difficulty level.

    - No more duels.I personally don't miss this feature, but I know that one of the top requests from DW4 players was the ability to challenge computer enemies to duels.Instead of refining the duel system, they've dispensed with it altogether.
    - No more customized officers of your own design.This was one of the more fun aspects of Empires -- gone with the wind.
    - The new Musou Mode will not be to everybody's taste.Now, instead of choosing a side and having all of the officers of that side available to you, you choose a character who has a specific story arc, and you can't swap fighters midway.There are advantages to this -- more varied storylines, deeper gameplay -- but the downside is the inability to switch characters, and now you *have* to master every single character to finish the game.
    - Enemy generals do an insane amount of damage.It's just not fun in any context to face an enemy that can take half your life bar with one single combo.It's nice that enemies do less of the "block you to death" trick, but to have to pay for one mistake with half your life bar is excessive.It doesn't ruin the game, but it mars the enjoyment.
    - Cao Pi, Pang De and Xing Cai are all pretty unappealing as new characters.Cao Pi's moves are pathetic, Xing Cai is slow and unremarkable (terrible voice, too), and Pang De looks like a nameless general.It's as if they ran out of character-design ideas.Ling Tong's nunchaku are neat, but why not have a character use a mace ("liang ya pang", or "wolf's tooth club"), a whip, a quarterstaff, or tri-sectioned nunchaku?
    - Character balance has actually suffered.The new weapons system, where each weapon has a "weight" rating which affects how fast you attack, actually skews the game even more -- the fast, powerful characters become overwhelmingly strong (Jiang Wei is almost unstoppable with the new weapons system), while "alternate", more joke-like characters like Zhang Jiao, Xu Zhu, and Diao Chan are now nearly feeble -- the slower characters are crippled by heavy weapons, short-ranged characters get overwhelmed by the increased number of peons, and slow-moving characters will get pummeled by the insidious enemy AI.They should have given these harder characters a little something to balance the odds.

    Overall, this game has successfully restored my faith in the series.It was more appealing to pick up than DW4, and leagues above Empires in design and gameplay.Highly recommended for fans of brawler games -- not perfect, but the best example of this game series I've seen and played yet.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A better DW
    Despite comments about this being the same as the others, sure it is the same idea, but it has many changes.Look at how small the characters are in DW 4 and how dark the environments are.In DW 5 the characters are huge, and the environments are not only interactive but the landscape is much brighter.The fog is lifted so you can see far far away.The castles are amazingly detailed, as well as the surrounding environment.Character stories are all based on their own experiences.Some have many battles others only a few.Lu Bu fans will be amused by his story, but let down by the shortness of it.Each player can use the assorted items, orbs, harnesses, and even a tiger, that you find...And each officer gets 4 weapons to choose from. Thats right, no more leveling up your weapon, you must find them.The weapons even come in light, medium and heavy.This controls the speed of your swings.Also, the new evolution combo system allows for high number combos.Your bodyguard is but one person, not 8.He/she can be any of several types of guards, with different special skills earned by fighting.You can have 8 guards in stock, but only take one with you.After missions you sometimes can hire new guards, too.Combos are a little different from DW4.Some characters have newer moves.Characters... You must unlock them as always, forcing you to be every single person.I got Lu Bu from doing Sun Quan, go figure.The music is the same as always.Also, if you are given a task, and choose to do something else the mission changes somewhat.Oh, and the maps are much bigger than in DW4.Good luck if you dont have a horse.The AI appears to be smarter.There are forts and gates in this one.Gates are the usual, but forts provide many different things and you must bring them down as well.New to the series is musou rage icons which super power your character, and double musou with your bodyguard.That is something that is a must see.You can clear 100's of enemies with that. Cons are that you do not have a create an officer mode, or bodyguard.Good- graphics, gameplay(2 player in all modes), and new story delivery.Aside from the best DW.. DW3, this beats the pants off DW 4.If you like DW, get it, if you are new to the series(where have you been?) you will not be disappointed. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best PS2 game!
    This game is awesome! The single player game's levels are challenging and expansive. All of them have multiple pathways and let you go into the missions with recommended weaponry, stealth weapons, or heavy weapons. On most levels, heavy weapons are your best bet. The AI is very smart. One example is when you disable a light, some enemies will use a torch or flashlight to try and find you. Another great improvement is the ability to save ANYWHERE! This is a great feature and makes it much easier to complete levels. The game also has co-op gameplay, where you and a friend team up to complete levels. When playing co-op, just make sure your friend is good at the game, and if they aren't good at it, make sure they can follow directions. Because if 1 of you dies, its failed mission. Now down to the core of the game: multiplayer online. The multiplayer is why i rated this game 5 stars. It is amazing! You can either be a spy or a mercenary. When you're a begginer, i recomend being a mercenary, because it's much easier to kill spys. When you are a spy, you have to jump on mercenaries or sneak up behind them and brake their neck. Mercenaries just have to shoot the spys. Overall, this is a mustbuy if you like the stealth genre and have a PS2, Xbox, or good PC. If you have a gamecube, but not a good PC, you dont know what your missing with the multiplayer mode.

    5-0 out of 5 stars i love this game
    i think this is the best splinter cell game in the universe.The graphics arent a good as the xbox's but its pretty much the same game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!!!
    I love this game and heres my pros and cons
    Now assault mode
    More moves like neck break and more weapons of lethalness
    Fun to play
    Bashing doors open and knocking out the bloke on the other side
    Graphics (Most realistic PS2 game)
    Tense gameplay
    Hacking computers, keypads whatever is difficult
    This is a must buy for anyone except under 15s because theres a horrible torture scene in mission 1, theres strangling, neckbreaking, drowning and blood if u look closley when killing and swearing but not too much only s**t and son of a b*tch and it is difficult. So buy buy buy wether u like it or not. Splinter Cell is now for run and gun fans becuse theres 3 modes u can choose when starting a mission which are stealth, assault and Reddings reccomendation (Reddings repleaced Brunton from Pandora Tomorrow). So theres something for everyone here. I wont be buying anything else for a while because I'll try to finish it 9 times (Mixture of the 3 1st then just stealth mode and then assault mode). I feel like owning a PS2 for just the following games
    GTA Vice City and San Andreas
    Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and this
    50 Cent Bulletproof and The Warriors (When they are released)
    Buy this and all the games mentioned above but wait a while for 50 Cent Bulletproof and The Warriors because Warriors is out end of the year and 50 Cent Bulletproof around same time I think. Thank you for reading this review and I hope u found it useful in helping u with your PS2 game choices.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
    Splinter Cell Chaos theory is an incredible game. It is a stealth game. The focus is light and dark: hiding in the darkness and sneaking up on guards thtanever heard or saw you. You can use non lethal attacks like punches, knees, or choke-holds, or lethal attacks like neck snaps and throat slits. The graphics pushn the ps2 to the limit: many cutscenes can be mistaken for movie scenes. Do not believe any bad review you hear. There is also a co-op mode and an online, spies vs. mercenaries, mode. The level design, sound, and story are great.

    Graphics-pushes the ps2 to the limit. 9.9=4.95
    Gameplay- stealty, light and dark, play 9.6=4.8
    sound- good msuic, but nothing spectacular 8.5 4.25
    fun factor- if you do not enjoy stealth games, you will after splinter cell chaos theory 9.5=4.75
    note: the game is very hard

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Version
    I own the X-box version of this game and it is incredible. I rented the play station one just for fun. I knew it wouldn't come close, but I just wanted to see how it stacked up. This game is of very mediocre quality by to days standards. The first splinter cell that came out for PS2 is better than this one. The PS2 Chaos Theory sort of looks like an early prototype of the X-Box version before detail, texture, high quality graphics and nonlinear mapping were put in. If you don't have the X-box though, it's still a pretty fun game, so I'd recommend at least renting it. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A tremendous disappointment and the worst Star Ocean ever...
    It seems that Till The End of Time has garnered much praise by reviewers. Why? I don't know. Star Ocean: TtEoT is the one of the biggest RPG disappointments I've played for the PS2.
    I'm a pretty hardcore RPG fan, but after exhaustively playing everything in the PS2 RPG world, I was on my knees begging for a decent RPG until the good RPG's begin release in June 2005. I stumbled upon Star Ocean and fondly remembered the Star Ocean for the SNES, a remarkable adventure, so I picked it up. At the beginning, I was amazed with the game's setting. It takes place in the distant future between federations of planets and insane technology, which you would think would lead to a good story and environments. Unfortunately, I spent 95% of the game in dungeons that seemed to come straight out of Diablo.
    Back to the beginning, I noticed one thing immediately: the characters are flat as cardboard. They are complete stereotypes of RPG's, and react the same exact way as their stereotype dictates. Don't expect any character development, you're looking at the wrong game. The game's story and dialogue is altogether amazingly cliche and lame, with the typical selfless teen hero and his girlfriend who hangs with him everywhere who need to save the world from a terrible force. Awfully familiar, isn't it? If you've ever played an RPG, you've played this game.
    What people consider the saving grace of Star Ocean is the battle system. In a nutshell, it's real time and you can switch between your characters as you attack the enemy. Unfortunately, you can't even see all the enemies on the map from one viewpoint, and the other is too far with the camera to properly battle. To add to the problem, the Comp controlled characters are iddiots and require almost nonstop attention to keep them from dying, because dying is permanent until you can get to a heal point.
    What really kills the game besides the story, the characters, the somewhat glazed graphics, the stupid AI, and the somewhat unpolished feel is the save system. There are not nearly enough save points. Probably about 2 for the entire game. The dungeons in this game are huge and unmapped, as in YOU explore them and YOU map them out. The dungeouns are huge and littered with enemies. Because of the difficult battles, huge dungeons, lack of save and healing points and unmapped dungeons, I had to run back to town often to save my characters from certain death and to get healing products. If they had just approached this like they did FFX, where the map is clear and linear right in front of you, and there are plenty of save points which also act as healing points, this game wouldn't have been nearly as frusturating, but after dying from the umpteenth time due to no save points, I completely lost interest.
    What could have and should have been a great game falls completely flat. Unchanging stereotypical characters, a terrible story, frusturatingly large dungeons and lack of saving/healing points, terrible AI and a general lack of polish relegate Star Ocean to a disgrace, a game not fit to carry its series' name similar to Final Fantasy 8 or Sword of Mana. I guess I'll have to wait Till the End of Time to play a good RPG.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Star Ocean
    This game was not as good as the second one. since the dungeon designs looked same, the battle system was not that fun. still the story makes up for it and the background visuals.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Star Ocean is full of Five Star value
    The game has excellent graphics (though sometimes they may look a little off...) and the story is also very good. The characters are pretty likable, and depending on which characters you prefer depends on which ones go with you til the end of the game. Depending on your relationship with them can also change the ending. The game has a ton of cut scenes, but I have yet to find one cutscene I didn't like. BUT, the switch from the "easy" level to "normal" is a hard one-I felt like there was a huge difference in the monster's power. Overall though, it's still a great game.

    4-0 out of 5 stars it's official
    i got a chance to play this game when i first played it in my friends house. it wasn't the best rpg ever made. but the gameplay is worth playing and the graphics are nice. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Basketball, not at its best
    Ok, as yall might know me, im Gamer8. To the game. This game is sorta like the first NBA Street game for the PS2. It has some flaws, such as lighting. Also, at points of the game, you might say, is this game worth $50.00? Well, its worth about $30.00. 1.- Its not a good game for portability. 2.-Lighting is bad at times 3.-Can be hard for beginners. So I suggest that you must know what the first few NBA Street games are about before buying thsi title. PS:Its a fun game after a while

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just like the other ''STREET'' Games
    This is an awsome game for the psp. You should definetely pick this game up at a store. There are party play games which include ''shot blocker'' and ''arcade shootout''. There is wireless head to head mode. This game also includes ea's pocket trax which is when you get to listen to any of the songs from the game. Also King of the court mode. So pick this game up its awsome!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars 2nd best PSP game to Wipeout Pure
    Wow!This game has almost identical grahics to the PS2 games and has 4 more levels than THUG 2 for PS2!There are also new characters.The only dropoff of this game from the console is the fact that there are only 2 shoulder buttons instead of 4.If you have play Tony Hawk on a console before and have enjoyed it, then this is a must buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars same story line but better stuff
    in this game there are 4 new levels and more charecters. the graphics ar not as good as the ps2 version butt they are pretty sweet. you have all the create a modes except create a park which is a bummer. i had a glich on mine and my whole body disapeared. i put all the stuff back on my guy but no board because you cant put it back on. the 4 new levels tie in with the story mode. in story mode you get to choose which level you want to go to. you still have the levels you do not choose you just have to go back there unless you dont this game!! the game play is the same as the ps2 version except in here, you run all weird. HERE ARE THE CHEATCODES: (DONT CAPITILIZE IN GAME) PERFECT RAIL-TIGHTROPE. SOME SECRET CHARECTERS: BIRDMAN. type these in correctly and they wiil work. only for the psp though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hawk fans must buy this game
    THUG 2 Remix for PSP may not be the perfect game for anyone, but if you are a big fan of the Tony Hawk series, then this game is your dream come true. When I made the decision to buy the PSP, I actually didn't even consider buying this game because I already had the PS2 version. Then I read that the PSP version contains four brand-new levels, and realized that I must buy it because I could never stand to miss any Tony Hawk levels. But after thinking about it, I realized that I would have ended up buying this game even without the new levels. Why? Because I love playing Tony Hawk games. It is the type of game that I can pick up any time and start playing, even if I'm not working on any particular goals. Having a Tony Hawk game at my fingertips 24/7 is why I bought this game.

    There is plenty of gameplay here. There are more levels than I've bothered to count and you can play through them in both story mode (where the goals are kind of stupid) and classic mode (where the goals are like the older games and you have a 2:00 time limit). Plus, there is easy, normal, and sick difficulty levels, so the truly hardcore have a whole extra level of challenge to keep them playing longer.

    I bought this game two weeks ago and I still cannot stop playing it, even though I already played through it on my PS2! If the Tony Hawk series even remotely grabs your interest, you should get this game.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good but not worth the price
    gewd game if yur a thug fan. however, the price of it just isnt worth it, you mite as well buy teh ps2 version of it instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perty good launch game for the psp
    Okay, for a launch game on the psp i thought this game was really really good. this game was offered to previous consoles but this version for the psp has more features like new levels. i also have never played THUG 2 on the consoles so this game was fresh for me.if u have played THUG 1 0r 2 then it might take a little take getting used to the handling and buttons of this game. ok now im gonna seperate eac aspects of any game into categories and rate each one, the categories are, control, sound, graphics and picture and finally how fun it is.\
    Control-8/10: nice controls, kinda took me time to get used to it and i even had to look in the manual cuz ive played Thug 1 and some things were different. kinda feels weird when u make ur own spray becuz the analog stick is a little touchy. but it is easy to get used to. also kind of confusing without l2 and r2 buttons but is still easy to overcome. but the game controls r easy and make busting combos an easy task which is great
    Sound-10/10: one of the best soundtracks ive ever heard in a videogame ever! plus u can edit the playlist to your preference which makes things better. voices sound perty good. i recommend using earphones for this becuz to get the most out of this game the earphones work great. the built-in speakers do the job but earphones maxmize the fun.
    Graphics and Picture-10/10:ok, im very very picky when it come to the look of the game but this game blew me away. possibly one of the best graphics so far in a game put onto a handheld. i mean handhelds r known to lack in the graphics department, but this game look almost the same as ps2 graphics, who knows, maybe furture games for the psp might even match up to ps2 graphics! i liked the detail put into this game. goodjob activision!
    FunFactor-9.5/10: this game overall was one of the best psp launch games so far(cuz i havent tried any other ones yet). perty funny stunts and cutscenes. and having Bam as a main dude in the game just makes things better. he actually made me laugh in one of the cutscenes. just beware kids cuz of the rude behavior presented by some of the skaters. might be a little hard for little kids and some ppl might be offended by the rude language and behavior but i really dont care... really fun multiplayer action. great to play with your buddies. you can even play a game of horse with just one psp, so even if your friends dont have one yet you guys can still play 2gether on one psp, u just pass the psp around when its their turn. how awesome is that! ...
