    From Amazon.com

    To help you start your PSP collection, we've created this special bundle, which includes the Intec "Dock It" docking station, Sandisk 256 MB Memory Stick, and Wipeout Pure game in addition to the Sony PSP value pack which comes with the AC adapter, battery pack, 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, earbud headphones with remote control, soft case, hand strap, and of course the PSP system.

    The era of no-compromises handheld gaming has arrived. Get ready for immersive, 3D gaming on a console that is poised to change the way we think about portable devices. With wireless internet, video and digital music playback, and incredible data storage and connectivity options, the Sony PSP--or PlayStation Portable--is a complete solution for the mobile digital lifestyle. Sony has hit the mark by combining both horsepower and groundbreaking features into a package that weighs just a hair more than half a pound.

    Design
    The PSP's exceptional performance comes from a 333 MHz processor that dwarfs the speed of competing handheld consoles. Add this polygon-pushing muscle to 4 MB of fast DRAM and 32 MB of embedded RAM, and you've got a device with graphics rendering capabilities close to that of the PlayStation2. And because no game is complete without audio, the PSP is generously appointed with built-in stereo speakers, as well Dolby Digital 7.1 surround soundcapability. Sony has also pulled out all the stops with the PSP display. The bright, 4.3-inch LCD sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution--plenty of real estate for heavy gaming action and widescreen-format movies. All of this is powered by a removable, and rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.



    Screen machine: The 4.3-inch display sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution. Movies and games on the go have never been more gorgeous.

    From a controls perspective, the PSP is made for gaming. If you're familiar with a PlayStation controller, you'll be a pro at the PSP's controls in no time. Directional buttons, as well as an analog stick are provided. Meanwhile, the familiar left and right shoulder buttons, as well as triangle, circle, cross and square buttons are integrated into the device's slim case. Finally, home, select, and start buttons give you quick access and control over the PSP's important functions.



    To have and to hold: The PSP's easy-to-master controls are cleverly integrated into the device's slim profile.

    Supported Media
    At the heart of the PSP is a new, proprietary media format known as the Universal Media Disc, or UMD. Each UMD can hold 1.8 GB of data, enough room for rich and complex games. UMDs, which are housed in a protective cover, slide into the rear of the PSP. Sony has declared the UMD an open format for developers and media content owners, so movies, music and other media are on the horizon from third parties. Sony has also signed on many popular game developers for the platform, so a deep library of titles is on tap.

    While the UMD is great for read-only media such as games and movies, Sony solves the problem of data storage with the addition of a Memory Stick Duo slot. With Memory Stick Duo media, you can store your saved games, downloaded online content, personal video and audio files, and more. When you want access to these files from your PC, simply use the PSP's USB 2.0 port to turn the device into a fastportable media drive. Then, drag and drop files such as your photos, MP3s, and videos onto the PSP, just as you would any other removable storage device. The PSP ships with a 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, and additional media with higher storage capacities are available.



    Major media: Sony's PSP-compatible Universal Media Disc (UMD) can hold 1.8 GB of data.

    Connectivity
    The PSP blows away the competition in the connectivity department. Indeed, the PSP's ability to connect to the internet, and to other PSPs and USB-based peripherals, is a real advantage. At the top of the list is Wifi connectivity, or IEEE 801.11b. Use this wireless internet standard to connect to other gamers around the world for hot multiplayer action--all from your couch, or your local Wifi hotspot. As mentioned, the PSP's USB 2.0 port is great for PC connectivity, but it also opens the PSP up for a whole range of future peripherals. Sony has plans for the PSP in other ways, too; the unit's infrared port speaks of remote control capabilities in the near future.

    A Digital Companion
    If you haven't already guessed, Sony has positioned the PSP to be much more than a gaming device. Out of the box, the device is ready to serve as a portable video player and photo viewer. By using the new H.264 MPEG-4 video standard, Sony obviously has its eyes on making the PSP a robust video device with support for feature length movies and more.In addition, the PSP offers a great way to transport and share your photos in JPEG format. And let's not forget the music. Load up your favorite MP3-encoded songs onto a Memory Stick Duo and you've got a portable audio powerhouse. The device also supports Sony's ATRACaudio codec, so you can play songs acquired from Sony's Connect Online Music Store. Sony even ships a nifty pair of earbuds--complete with an inline remote control--with the PSP.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Freakin' Sweet
    First, this is not a kid's review, I just used this because it was much easier. At first, i was going to buy a Nintendo DS, but then i saw this. The DS cannot compare to the PSP. This system is AWESOME!!! Were do I start. The graphics are by far the best I've seen for a portable system. The lineup for games is basically the PS2 lineup, with future games like 007 from russia with love, Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Madden 2006 And NBA Live 2006. Now that new movie companies are publishing DVD's the movie line up is good too. The MP# feature will be nice too. But i did find a couple of downsides though. first, it did not come with a USB cable, but "supposedly" they already lose about $60 on each. Second, it scratches easy. Third, the battery only last about 5 hours. And lastley, Memory cards are Expensive! But hey, I love my PSP, so If you have the money, go for it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GODLY GREATNESS!!!!!!!!!!
    First of all...This system is god!!!!!!!Im sure thewrte are the wackos that think the Ds os good well i got news for you IT ISNT!!!!!!!!PSP has movies, music, and games and............other suff!!!!it just rocks!and now for some true facts:
    PSP is god
    DS sucks
    end of that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really worth the money
    This machine is incredible!!I bought mine on June 4days ago at TOYS R US, and even the cashier said it is worth the money.I readthese reviews on the PSP saying there is dead pixels, what a total lie whoever is saying that they do not have a mind.This system does it all.Oh and if you buy it make sure you cherish like if it's your child, never let it out of your sight.PSP is simply beautiful.

    1-0 out of 5 stars PSP- a real gamers review
    First of all let me start by saying that most of the reviews on this site are by people who are casual gamers. I personally have been playing games for most of my life and have owned every major console avaliable. The PSP has several major flaws that the competitors do not.

    The first flaw i have seen is the games, the launch titles are mainly football and racing games. i myself am not a sport or racing fan and find no interest in these titles. Although if you were would you really like to play 4 different racing games that are really just the same.

    The second flaw is the console durability, the console is easily broken, i know you are meant to look after it but for a portable machine it is going to be dropped at some point in the consoles life. It has several manufacturing flaws as well, such as dead pixels, scratched screens, unresponsive buttons, and disc that like to fly out the back of it if the console is manipulated.

    The third flaw is the price, it is very expensive for what it does. It can play MP3's and movies which is great but it does at a substandard quality and you need a memory stick in which to store it. It can not play DVD which means you have to buy the UMD which are far more expensive and will only work on the PSP. while you can buy more high quality products such as a portable DVD player and an iPod for around the same price.

    So overall there are far better alternatives to what the PSP can do, for example: portable DVD player; MP3 player. Also having owned a Nintendo DS it is a far more innovative product, with the touch screen bringing wider possibilites for the games. Also if you despartly want the graphics of the PSP in a portable console then please wait till the GBA 2 comes out on the market. it will be far better and have the quality of product that we have come to expect from Nintendo.

    Thank you for reading my review, and i hope that it has helped you in your choice of handheld consoles for the future.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice
    one word describes this: nice. as with all other Sony products. Stunningly beautiful graphics on a large (4.3 inches i think) screen, analog, cool looking handheld is amazing. I have one myself. The music and the video just adds to the perfection of the PSP. But, there're some cons. 1st of all I would have to say the games are quite pricey, and that the psp may be a bit heavy for some, and as for the dead pixels, i believe it was the ones for sale in north america that may have them, because i saw 2 that had them, and of course mine doesn't, and also with the battery that doesn't have that long of a life, but.... who would play with a handheld for 4 hours? (thats how long psp battery would last) the verdict: cool looking system with crazy graphics, so get it for sure if money allows, but you may have to charge it often, and watch for the dead pixels. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Short but Sweet
    Star Wars Episode 3 may dissapoint some hardcore gamers, but for fans of Star Wars, it will no doubt entertain.

    The RotS game is a very fun play. It has a somewhat deep combat system (not as deep as the Lord of the Rings games)The actuall combat moves arent mapped out like in the lord of the rings games, but different combos of buttons will produce different moves.

    RotS is a good looking game. Some elements arent particularly great, but it still looks good. The lightsaber animations are phenominal, although the majority of animations arent so hot. The character models are good, the enviroments are ok, some blanness shows here and there, and if there is a big explosion the framerate drops a tad.

    Now, while it is a good, even above average, game, I have to say it is one of the shortest games I have ever played. On the hardest difficulty, you can beat it in 5 - 6 hours. The levels were probably drug out as much as possible, but they could have added a space fight level, like in the begining of the movie, or levels that dont revolve around just Anakin and Obi-Wan. Like maybe some clone vs. battledroid levels where you play as Mace Windu, or a level where you play as Yoda and you fight Emporer Palpatine. Additions like this would have added serious time to the game, and a bigger fun factor.

    While the games combat has different fight combos, it isnt forced enough. You can get through the game by hack-n-slashing.

    Overall, if you are a fan of the movie, you will undoubtably love this great addition.

    Concept- Make the ultimate Jedi simulator

    Presintation- 8.3- The box art is good, the menues are nice and polished, and there is scenes from the movie woven into the game.

    Graphics- 8.0- Overall, very nice. Some good lightsaber animations and some good enviroments, but mostly everything is good to par.

    Sound- 9.0- Star Wars games always sound good. My only problem with the sound is almost all the voiceovers during gameplay are almost as bad as in the movie.

    Gameplay- 8.1- Combat is fun, could have been deeper, and the force powers are used well. The levels are particularly done well, but are ok. The camera has some problems too.

    Playability- 8.4- you can get through the game hack-n-slashing. But it still is good.

    Overall- 8.0 - Good game, could have been better (like most Star Wars games) Star Wars fan boys will love it.

    Replay Value- 8.5- You probably wont play the single player campaign much after you beat it, but there are so many unlockable levls (including one great level where you play as Yoda) Two player duels with unlockable characters and arenas (including darth vader and ben kenobi in the original Death Star)

    5-0 out of 5 stars "yah its pretty sweet its .........................AWSOME!!"
    THIS GAME IS PRETTY SWEET, IT HAS SWEET JEDI COMBOSAND STUNNING KILLS. IT HAS A GOOD STORY PLAY AND THE GRAPHICS ARE GREAT. THE MULTIPLAYER IS AWSOME BECUASE YOU HAVE SO MANY CHARACTERS AND LEVELS. IN CO-OP YOU HAVE LIKE FIVE LEVELS TO PLAY WHICH ISALL RIGHT. THE BONUS LEVELS ARE SWEET BECUASE IN ONE OF THEM YOU COULD PLAY YODA WHICH YOU CAN PULL OFF SOME SWEET MOVES. THIS GAME IS GREAT AND II SUGGEST YOU GET IT.

    P.S. "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cool, but no KOTOR.....
    This is a really cool game, graphics and all. But, I was expecting it to be a Knights of the Old Republic game--more RPG than an arcade/action type game. So, if your expecting KOTOR #3, forget it. So, as a stand alone Star Wars game, I give it 4 stars. But, because I expected it to actually be KOTOR #3 when I bought it, really overall I'd give it 3 stars.

    3-0 out of 5 stars What have I done?!
    OMG!!!This game is way worse then the movie.I mean the deaths aren't even the same!And the actors don't do the voices!The only 3 good things about this are:graphics,action,new ending.Nuf said!

    4-0 out of 5 stars you'd think battling the sith would be tougher!
    Star wars episode 3 is a decent game with exceptional graphics, plenty of fighting and a variety of wonderful unlockables, yet the easy gameplay leaves you wanting more. Even at hard mode this game is incredibly easy to beat. It is also pretty short and next time I hope lucasarts produces a challenging jedi game allowing you to play through all 6 episodes. ...

    Features

    • Built for Competition - After learning the game and building up your first character, you may choose to test your skills in head-to-head competition or guild warfare. The game is designed to reward player skill and teamwork, not time spent playing, so you won't need to spend hundreds of hours leveling up your character to compete.

    • Unique Streaming Technology - ArenaNet's unique streaming technology forever eliminates the concept of patching a game. You don't have to wait a month for the next big patch to experience new content. Instead, the game constantly and intelligently streams new content to your computer in the background while you play. The world can change continually. This allows us to build a much more dynamic game world than any thathas existed before.

    My experience with mmorpg's include DAOC, SWG, PS, EQ II and WOW...yes I am a geek. Guild wars got it right

    MISSIONS & TRAVELING:
    There are missions to do if you choose to, missions basically lead a player from one town to another. The missions use waypoints to make it easy. You can choose to group with henchmen (AI) or other players. It does not take long to form groups, longest I have waited is 3 minutes (no kidding). Traveling from city to city that you have been to is as easy as opening up the map and clicking (no more time sinks).

    LOOT:
    Loot drops are automatically assigned to each player of a group. There are 3 different types of quality loot: white (least rarest), blue, purple, yellow (most rarest). I am level 15/20 and I have only seen yellow loot drop twice, super sweet stuff. I love searching for loot drops fun :)

    PVP:
    2 types of pvp arena and capture the flag. Capture the flag is played in groups of 8, 6 teams and is for the level 20s. If you don't want to level a character, just make a level 20, the game allows you to do this to play capture the flag only. U.S, Europe and Korea compete in capture the flag and the winners are announced in system messages. Arena is AWESOME. No need to find a group, just click join and you are randomly grouped with others for a 4-on-4 battle, fun because it is so balanced. Skill is the only thing that matters, did I say super balanced :) I often find myself in 2 hour sessions saying just one more battle and you get experience.

    EXTRA:
    There is NO monthly fee. The load times of this game are fastest I have ever seen, 1 sec for me. No more time sinks. I should have bought this a long time ago. If your going to buy 1 game for rest of 2005, it should be guild wars.





    4-0 out of 5 stars Game is not for All MMO players
    this game is a good game but its not for all MMO playersits mainly for those that get board easily hehe who are low income and also for those that whine about kill steals

    I like this game as it is set to where you can do most things solo at a early lvl and later on when you are established in a guild you can play for the higher lvls or just look around for a group granted there is some that rush through and some that dont know what they are doing there are always people like this in games but it is rewarding when you find a group that knows what to do and dont leave anyone behind if possible

    i have a lvl 10 elementalist ranger at the moment and i have solowed for the most part with myself or 1 person in game or npc groupof 3 others with myselfthe group max is 4 now i believe i havent done any pvp yet but from the reviews ive read i doubpt i want to there are some invisable walls but you arnt lead down a path all the time you can cut crossed country in alot of areas

    Economy is like all other games can be high in areas as people are greedy most of the stuff is found and sold on a auction channel of sorts but most basic thigns are bough from npc's

    the avatars in my opinion as a female very beautiful atleast the elementalist but yes as in all games you have scruffy looking fellows too

    The bottom line here is what one man's or woman's opinion of a game is not always the opinion you would give a game my advice is try it if ya dont like it sell it used or something like that or see if there is a trial or spend all your time reserching it and let somone else dictate rather you will or wont like a game you will never know till you play it for yourself.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Beware: MMO-Lite..All that glitter is not Gold
    I frankly just burned my $50 bucks with this game. This game is Bad with a Capital 'B'. There is something seriously missing from this game(if you are a Star Wars fan..'the force is unusally weak with this one'). I find it hard to fanthom how so many people are claiming this game to be the next best thing since sliced bread. Trust me its not.
    This game doesn't feel like an mmo its mostly a persistent single player online game. One of the main attraction of an mmo is to be able to see other people running around in a persistent world. You can wave them, help them out, have a chit-chat or maybe even duke it out if they are hostile to you. There is no such aspect to this game. Every mission is 'instanced'; its just you or your guild or AI henchman(AI lacks and they feel like 'npc's too). You dont get to see anyone else.
    They are invisible walls in this game everywhere. Unlike many other mmo's you just can't walk over to where you please like in a real persistent world. Instead you are forced to follow and play along a path chosen for you. For e.g...you are going on the road and there is a nice water-fall you see some distance away. So you decide to walk down the hill and check it out. Surprise...there is a invisible wall blocking your way. You have to stay on the road..it was all just a illusion or some cosmetic matte painting. This cuts down the real virtual world factor right there and than. Your only chance of seeing a group of people is in the cities and the way the game is setup you wont be spending much time in cities anyway.The city further lack the community feeling with no inns, housing or gathering places everyone just stands in the middle of the town.
    As far as rpg element is concerned, the classes and their powers are poorly setup. Only 8 of your skills can be used at any time. I want to be able to use more than 8 skills sometimes. Combining two clases is a good idea but the 8 skills limitation further cuts down the charm of this aspect.
    There is no player run economy as to speak...you sell stuff to npc's ho hum. Player run economy is an absolute must in my view for an mmo to get some sense of realism.
    PVP is where this game really falls apart. This mmo strong point was its 'pvp aspect'; however this is where it fails the most. Instead of providing a real war like feeling that is so well done in 'World of warcraft' this game throws you in team based instanced arenas. Just imagine playing a online fps like 'Unreal tournament' or 'Counter-strike' with fantasty characters as well as weapons and you will get the complete picture. Dont expect to be the ubber champ if you haven't first played the pve aspect of the game lvl 20 + and unlocked specials skills. Because you get the standard Lvl 20 template for those classes if you decide to just go pvp but not the special skills that you can unlock if you had tried the pve aspect first. Some of those pve learned special skills are clearly superior to the standard pvp template and players already know this aspect and have learned to exploit it. So it means that whether you want to do pve or not you will have to if you want to be really good in pvp and reaching to lvl 20 is still a time-intensive pve grind. Now i come to my biggest complaint when it comes to pvp. So many people are touting strategy and true skill-based pvp in this game. Well the truth is far from it. Unless you have established guild with people you know you will be thrown into random 4 man teams with each player specilizing in certain skills like 1 is ranger, 1 is tank etc.. You are forced to group to pvp whether you like it or not, forget about any sniper or solo support role. Not to my surprise this random team of unknown people falls apart rather quickly. Most of the teams i have played in like to just rush in or charge without any ryhme or reason and resulting mayhem causes utter confusion with the victor being a warior or someone who can mash buttons the fastest. Or everyone just go into different directions once they get into arena and you are pretty much on your own and good luck here if you a pure ranger. There is no strategy atall that i have seen any team discuss or even apply so far. Another huge pitfall is those invisible walls blocking you from striking at the opposing player. If say you are on a hill and you see the opposing players down below. Well you think that you have a strategic advantage here dont you escpecially if you are a full fledge Ranger/elementalist. Surprise...you just cant attack them in most cases because of those invisible cost-cutting walls and have to run down the long winding preset path to get them and in the meantime giving your position away. So forget about launching a surprise attack on anyone in most cases which is one of the major forte of true pvp. You will see many more pitfalls especially the feeling that there is no real war going on in this game. There is really no gain or charm from pvp except just for the thrill of doing pvp. You character dont gain anything. PVP should be a integral part of the game rpg aspect not some side wrestling match.
    Last but not least, the character creation is worst of any recent mmo's I have played so far. Some of characters look like misfits out of a bad Gothic heavy metal group...just have a look at the game 'Necromancer'. Others look like drag queens(sorry not to offend anyone its just a quip). Ontop of it you just have few templates and cosmetic choices to apply. As a result most people end up looking much the same with a real bad wadrobe case. And dont get me started at the Warior template. Supposedly the warrior is the start all and end all class. What we get is an over-weight and bald extra reject from the Gladiator movie.
    This is the end of my rant. If you look at my other reviews I give credit where its due and discredit where it is also due. This game is far from what some people are making it to be. There is a reason this game is not charging you a monthly fee and it shows. Read all the reviews and make a educated guess its just that there are far better 'real mmo's' out there too. Dont let fanboy's or overly exicited people mislead you. This game tries to do a lot of things all at the same time while cutting costs but in the end ends up doing nothing well. No-monthly fee here is a double-edged sword here. I for one will throw this game into my garbage can and they can forget me ever getting buying their other expansions. I got suckered once because of all hoop laa that surrounds this game...but no more.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Some aspects are very good, others need some work.
    The first thing that should be stated forthright about this game is that it shouldn't be classified as a massive multiplayer online (MMO) game.Much of the game takes place in private zones that approximately 8 people can access at a single time.There are towns and outposts that can harbor many more players, but these are merely gathering areas to form groups for your private instanced area; the vast majority of this game takes place in very small groups that do not interact with anybody else.In nearly all other MMO games, you're interacting with a large number of people all the time.I suppose there are perks to having your own private area to share with a few other people, but I found much of the playable areas depressingly lonely since there is little, if any player-player interaction.

    The game is divided up into two spheres: Player-Versus-Environment, and Player-Versus-Player, with specialized characters devoted to each.Player-versus-environment characters can explore the world AND engage in player-versus-player combat, but player-versus-player characters are restricted to just that: player-versus-player combat.As you progress through the main storyline and other side-quests with your player-versus-environment characters, the skills and items that you discover will be unlocked for any future player-versus-player character you create.If you haven't unlocked any items and skills and would still like to enjoy player-versus-player combat right off the bat, the game comes with several pre-made characters you can use solely for player-versus-player combat.There are six classes of players: warriors, rangers, monks, mesmers, necromancers, and elementalists.Each character has a primary profession and a secondary profession, allowing for interesting combinations of characters such as a player that is primarily a necromancer, but can swing a sword almost as good as a warrior.Some skill combinations don't really work too well, but the fact that there are a potential of 30 different classes combinations is pretty refreshing.In addition, even if you're the same primary and secondary profession as another character, you most likely have a different set of skills, of which you're only allowed to have 8 equipped at one time).This also aids in helping your character feel truly unique.

    The main storyline is very good, and I enjoyed progressing through each quest as more of the main story was revealed.When you play through the main storyline, your character and whoever you're partnering up with, be it other human players or computer controlled "bots", are the focus of the quest, and your actions in the storyline make it seem like you're actually doing super-human deeds instead of some trivial task like delivering a package.It is your character that saves entire cities from certain doom, it is your character that holds off armies of undead as they march towards your location; nothing you do is trivial.

    But once the main storyline is over, all you're left with is player-versus-player combat, which I personally did not enjoy.There are many strong strategies that people have already figured out for player-versus-player combat, so some battles are more luck than skill.Whenever I played in the player-versus-player arenas, I got the feeling that I was just playing some glorified first person shooter like Unreal Tournament, but with swords and spells.You can go back and try to unlock more items and spells, but this gets very boring and tedious quickly.I tried to play through the main storyline with a different type of character, but didn't find it as enjoyable or engaging as the first run through.

    However the main thing makes this game unbearable isn't so much the game mechanics as it is the people who play Guild Wars.There is no community, and you will never see the same person more than one time.Also, in a game that requires a lot of team play and coordination, there is an overabundance of people who simply don't care for tactics and are bound to get your character killed with their carelessness.

    The best part of Guild Wars is the fact that there is no monthly fee, and the steaming content that updates as you play.I'm sure ArenaNet will be able to do some interesting things with their streaming content system, but there really wasn't enough substance in the game to keep me hooked for long after I finished the main quest.The player-versus-player combat did not appeal to me, however if you believe that you'll like it, you'll most likely enjoy Guild Wars.If you're going to try this game, I strongly recommend you do so with a group of people that you already know, as there is no player community to speak of.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than any MMO EVER!
    I've played almost every mmo out there and this game is definately a step above. I thought since there was no monthly fee that there would be a huge lack of content but boy was I wrong!!! I have played it since release and there is so much to do and so many styles of play that I feel I will never grow tired of it. I've cancelled all my monthly fee games to play this one and I haven't regreted it since! ... Read more

    The Sims was one of the most popular games ever made. In it, players micromanage the lives of a family of virtual people, or Sims, and influence their paths toward success or something akin to a nervous breakdown. Its open-ended blend of cartoonish behavior and everyday living is unique in an art form otherwise obsessed with carnage and sports. With The Sims 2, longtime fans now have a deeper game with lots of ways to customize and share their experiences. The game will also attract first-timers because the goal-oriented gameplay and the luridly fun starter families make it easier to get into the action right out of the box.


    Now Sims are born with the traits of their parents, families grow, and Sims grow old.

    The People in Your Neighborhood
    The game starts at the neighborhood level. Here you can create a housing development from scratch or start with one of three premade neighborhoods, each with its own theme. From there, you'll settle on a house and a family of Sims to control.

    The Sims 2 body shop
    Create your own Sim (above) or your own house (below) from scratch with advanced tools.
    The Sims 2 house-building tools
    Aside from the basic needs carried over from the previous game, Sims now have aspirations, wants, and fears. The wants and fears are the day-to-day things that occupy their minds, like wanting to see friends or get married and fearing death or being rejected for a kiss. Satisfy their wants, and they become more efficient at completing tasks you assign them. Realize their fears, and Sims become lethargic, cranky, and unresponsive to your commands. Aspirations are the big-picture things, like raising a family, becoming wealthy, and gaining knowledge. Succeed here and you'll be able to buy odd gifts for your Sim to improve his or her life, like a money tree that pays dividends or a "fountain of youth" water cooler.

    What Else Is New?
    Of course, you wouldn't be able to juggle all that if it weren't for the improved "Free Will" option, which makes it easier for Sims to fulfill their basic needs. The artificial intelligence of the game is noticeably improved; they won't turn on radios just as a family member is going to bed but, strangely, they do occasionally put their dishes on the floor.

    Another big change in the series is the concept of the lifespan. Now Sims are born with the traits of their parents, families grow, and Sims grow old. Not only does this go hand in hand with aspirations (growing up is the first aspiration that a baby Sim will have), it provides a limited time with which your Sims can achieve their goals.

    Sims in live mode
    The Universal Control Panel helps you manage your Sim family.
    A Family Affair
    The Sims 2 not only lets you create just about any type of Sim in any type of family, build elaborate houses, and even create a neighborhood from scratch, but it also allows you to start the game in medias res, with premade households. These families all have backstories that are smart spoofs of soap-opera plots--lots of scheming, romance, ghosts, and family fighting. Parents of teens shouldn't worry, though, because nudity is tastefully blurred out and "woo-hoo" between Sims takes place completely under the covers. The ESRB has given this a Teen rating. If The Sims 2 were a film, it would likely land between PG and PG-13.

    The makers have included some nice tools to help share the universe you've created. For example, you can capture in-game stills and video to show friends the private moments, family interactions, and house parties of your Sims. You can even package a household to share as a blog or an album on a special Web site.

    The Sims 2 is for patient gamers. Like life itself, the game is filled with mundane details, like getting ready for work and doing dishes. The game also demands a level of creativity from its players that the run-and-gun game genres wouldn't know what to do with. But those who stick with it will be rewarded with an absorbing, amusing diversion and a virtual family history that they've created themselves. --Porter B. Hall

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Sims2 for Windows
    Hi, I have the sims2 game. My friend and I really enjoy playing it! It is so much fun. People just need to try it out and see if they like it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Sims 2
    Yes, I am a Mac user, and yes, I can't wait until May 30th!!
    I have played The Sims 2 before, and it is SO COOL!! I love to go to the park, stand under the trees. It feels like you're right there with them!
    I may not have to wait, though, if I get the Windows computer I've been wanting so badly. And if I don't get that computer, then I'll just get this on May 30th. Oh, lucky me.
    Well, anyway, I've always liked building the houses, and now I can make so many changes (especially when I do the cheat -- hee hee!)
    All my friends like The Sims, especially me. So I root the sequel on!

    -- Nina S.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Sims 2 for Mac - Why the Wait?
    I've waited since the slightest infromation of the Sims 2 to get it, with much impatience. And now, I find out that it's not coming out for Macs until May 30th? I really, can't wait this long. All of my friends have it and I just watch them play it in raging jealousy. So not fair. I wish Maxis would have waited until May 30th to release the Sims 2 for Mac and PC, then I wouldn't have to watch all of my friends play it and brag and stuff. I played it at my friends house, and I was glued to the screen until I had to go home! I can't...wait...until...May...30th. I'll be so mad if Maxis pushes it later for Macs like they did for PC!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars finally...
    Well I'm really excited that they're coming out with sims 2, but does it have to be in may? the 30th? But luckily I'm getting a new computer, so I really don't have to wait. But its a really good game, and you guys should enjoy it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Super game
    Sims 2 is the best game I've played. Now you can actually choose the color of your Sim's eyes and hair, choose what type of cheeks, eyebrows, nose, chin, lips (ect) you want!!! And this time, Sims actually GROW UP!! It's much more reallistic than the other Sims. May 30th is waited with impatience.... ... Read more

    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 Pokemon Emerald
    Pokemon Emerald is pretty fun, but when you beat the game, there's not much more to do. It has some strategy involved, so that makes it kind of educational, but not really. I also never see a Game Boy Advance game break, so that makes it durable. So overall, it's a great game. The free tin is good, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this thing is outdated, but it's still fun
    the GBA SP was a success for nintendo (they rock!!!!) as GBA WAS getting pretty old. this IS A GREAT HANDHELD, but DS IS BETTER. this sysytem plays any GBA, GB, AND GBC games. it also has a light up screen which is great for playing late into the night. so for those of youwho still have a game boy or game boy color, you're missing out on all the fun! and the price is 80 bucks, so go out and buy one NOW!!!!!!!! WELL? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?!?!?!?!? GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO AAND BUY IT.... NO, I MEAN NOW!!!!!!!!!! NOW WHY ARE YOU STILL READIN THIS?!GO AND BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IIS YOUR FINAL WARNING! GO AND BUY IT NOW! .....3....2....1......0....UHOH, TIMES UP! YOU.....ARE.....DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really Cool!
    I love this version,Orange and Green. They have never done that in gaming. The graphics are alot better. The Cartidges are smaller(duh everyone knows that). But I perfer the DS. Finnaly, An actullal GameBoy with lightup screen. The controls are in the right place,fold up. It's just not as fun as other systems. It plays GBA,Game Boy Color and even Game Boy. I have a Red one of these. But the Green/Orange idea is one of the best ideas since the DS came out. It's 20.00$ cheaper so buy one now to enjoy the gameplay.

    4-0 out of 5 stars THIS ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is a must-have. I got one in Easter (2003?).
    HITS/MISSES
    + built-in light, with a button to control it.
    + rechargable
    + charge indicator[it disappears when it's charged]

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Invention Ever! By Maggie
    Ever since I played my friends Gameboy, I wanted one. I saved up money to buy it. Then for my birthday I unrapped a present and it was a Gameboy! I immideatly began playing it! It was soooo cool. The graphics are crystal clear. Perfesct size. Plus it's got really cool games you can buy. There are some games that you can't buy for Playststion, Xbox, or Gamecube. I love it. I definitly don't regret putting it on my birthday wish list!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game System For The Money.
    I'm a 35 year old man and -- I admit it -- I bought this thing for myself.Once you've made the initial investment in the hardware, the games cartridges themselves are relatively inexpensive(...) making it a good system for the casual video-gamer (like me) or the serious hobbyist.

    Game cartridges are also within the monetary grasp of many older children's allowances, so a GameBoy Advance could be used to teach children discipline with money.In other words, buy your kid(s) the hardware (and at least one game) to start with and then let them purchase other software when their funds permit.And, of course, game cartridges make inexpensive presents when birthdays or holidays come around.

    As for me, game play is very enjoyableand I'm thoroughly impressed with the graphics considering the screen size and pixel depth available to the system. (Currently I'm playing my first two cartridges: Spider-Man 2 and Star Wars III: Revenge Of The Sith.)

    Overall, for young or old, the GameBoy Advance is a great system (even surpassing its gimmicky touch-screen sibling, the Nintendo DS).The only thing an adult player has to consider is that the majority of games are marketed mostly to those in their early teens and younger.Other than that, its excellent.To top it all off, a GameBoy Advance can also play movies and TV shows with GameBoy Advance Video cartridges.

    In short, if you're looking for an affordable expandable video game system, either for you or for your children, get this. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant installment in the series
    I've been hooked on the GTA series for years, and while I haven't finished the game yet, so far, I can say this is the best one yet. Unless it really tanks in the end (which I seriously doubt), this is quite simply one of the best games I've played in a very long time.

    While the exclusivity contract Rockstar has with PS2 may be torturous for us PC snobs, (as the PS2 people get to play months before we do), this actually works out, because it gives RS time to iron out the bugs and glitches, and what we end up with is a rock solid program with none of the usual technical issues so common with PC game releases.

    The game adds a pseudo role playing element, as your character (CJ) can now improve in a number of skills (driving, flying, boating, various weapons, etc). At the same time, RS didn't over complicate the system. Skill progression is an automaticfunction of simply using the skills. It's very nicely done.

    The missions are a blast, and even better integrated into the overall environment than in VC (for example, in VC you collected "packages" for no apparent reason, while here you are spraying gang tags, which is the same exact idea, but makes a whole lot more sense giving the world you are playing in).

    Be warned, if you just play through the story line (doing the missions given to you by the game), you will only see half the game (or less). The side missions and odd jobs are, in my opinion, what really makes this series shine. They are both fun and rewarding (extra skills, weapons, money, and so on). In fact, strategically doing side missions can turn a story line mission from nearly impossible to fairly easy (as you'll have better weapons/skills/cars to work with). You won't see every side mission in the game without some sort of strategy guide, but even should you forgo a guide, there are enough side missions that you'll run into a lot of them just in the normal course of exploring the game.

    My one minor quibble with the game is the music. I loved the radio stations in VC. But here there are only 2 or 3 I can listen to without them driving me nuts. I get that RS is trying to keep with the time period (early 90's), but I could have used a little less gansta rap and a little more alternative. If you're one of those that stores music on their computer, you can have the game play your own custom song list, so it's not such a big deal in any event.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best within the systems
    This is a great game. I got it for PS2 when it first came out last year an I loved it, but I couldn't wait for the PC release. I picked up today an I was hooked all over again. This is such a great series. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars They still have the nerve to charge $50???
    Look, San Andreas is a great game, no question.If you get any GTA game, get this one - it's truly HUGE and it truly has it all - "it" being your basic carjackings, your hood tagging, your drive-bys, your pimping, your stealth B&E missions, basically every form of sociopathy known to man - in its best incarnation yet.

    The problem is that RockStar is still trying to wring $50 out of this re-release on a dying platform, this late in the game.I mean, are you serious.I have this title on PS2, and I WOULD get it for XBox too just cuz I know the graphics probably knock it out of the park - but come on.Wasn't even the GTA3/Vice City double pack like $30 when it first came out?

    So, screw it.I'll stick with my low-res, high-loading-time, feature-poor PS2 version till they come out with their next-gen installment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars So much to do, so much time.
    GTA San Andreas is a big improvement over the past GTA games in the series! There are just so many things to do. My personal favorite is the co-op mode. I also like customizing my ride, doing drive-bys (in cars and helicopters), jumping off of a building and parachuting, plus the simple goodness of shooting the hell outta whoever you want. Also the Xbox version has smoother graphics than the PS2 version and you can add your own custom soundtracks to the game. Overall, the Xbox Version of GTA San Andreas is much better than ANY other game of the GTA series, even the PS2 version of San Andreas. Buy NOW! (P.S. I'm not a kid, I just lost my password.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Emerald
    Pokemon Emerald is pretty fun, but when you beat the game, there's not much more to do. It has some strategy involved, so that makes it kind of educational, but not really. I also never see a Game Boy Advance game break, so that makes it durable. So overall, it's a great game. The free tin is good, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Creeper/ Reaffirms my love for video games
    Before I got this game I was racing RallisportS 2 and Project Gotham 2.So I rented this game having heard it was great and I popped it in and I wanted to go get my 7$ back from the video store.But I was stuck with it so I figured I'd see what it is all about.

    All of sudden when I started winning a couple races and getting a little acclamated to great vast world this games offers, I was hooked.Hooked real hard.3 days later I played for abot 18 hours straight.

    A few things I love about this game

    1. Stunningly beautiful.While driving I just reaffirm to myself how beautiful this game is visually
    2. Realistic Car Damage.If you ram into another car to try to knock it off the road so you can pass it, you end up messing your car up so bad that you'll get passed and lose.
    3.If you screw up on a turn, you're going to wreck.None of this pull the E-brake junk on this game, you're going into a wall or spinning off into a feild.


    Just some things I was thinking about.If you haven't tried this game, do so immediately, and make sure you play it for about 2 hours.That's when I couldn't put it down.It's kind of intimidating at first, but that passes very quickly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game rocks !!!
    Forza motorsport is the best racing game i have ever played. It blows away GT4 by far. The damage is very realistic unlike another certain racing game (lol).and the cars are just as cool. I definetly recomend this game for all you XBOX users.It will not disapoint.In conclusion if you have an XBOX get this one it rules.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Racing Game
    I recently got myself an XBox and was advised to rent and try before I buy. Blockbuster was out of Halo2 so I got this one home to try it out (I am a big fan of racing).

    Before I say anything further I'd have to mention that this is my very first game on XBox so I cannot compare it to any other games.

    Was I glad I rented it? Yes, Will I buy it? Yes.

    It's a little pricey at $40+ when compared to other games but then again it has a great game in it.

    As for the game itself it has a whole bunch of race tracks and customizable cars (categorized into Classes from R to D) with time trials, free runs and ofcourse the race arcades themselves.

    I'd suggest spending $7 and renting it before paying $40+ for your own copy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars the coolest game ever
    This game is the coolest game. It deels with sweet rides and awesome tracks . Buy this game you will never regret it!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Controls are god-aweful.TOO TWITCHY!!!!!Way too sensitive.
    This game is really disappointing.Why?Because the controls are too darn twitchy, way too sensitive.Move the analog stick a little to the left or right (by a little I mean maybe 1/4th to the extreme left or right) and the game behaves almost as if you're ARE turning to the extreme left or right (lock to lock).

    Want proof?Go to the major video gaming websites (gamespot and IGN) and watch the videos they have for Need for Speed Underground rivals. The vast majority of videos show cars crashing into walls left and right.And keep in mind these cars are most likely being controlled by video game writers.In other words, not even these veteran video game players (video game writers) could control these cars well.

    My other complaints with this game:

    -The 'drift' races just plain s*ck.With the game's twitchy controls, doing 'drift' races past the first 2 or 3 is very, very frustrating.

    -The upgrade system is very unorganized.When a player upgrades a part, there's nothing telling the player how the upgrade will affect the cars performance.Its a crapshoot.

    -This game just isn't as fun as other PSP racers (Namco's Ridge Racer in particular).This game just isn't fast enough. After winning a few races, the game gives you the option of doing a 'quick race' in a 'souped up, maxed out' car.In other words, you can do 1 race in a fully spec-ed out car for a quick race-its supposed to give you an idea of what the player can eventually reach.But these races are mundane compared to the later races in Ridge Racer.Compared to Ridge Racer, this game feels like driving in grandpa's car (and Ridge Racer controls A LOT better).

    My recommendation, get Ridge Racer (a very, very good game) or wait for Midnight Club 3 Dub edition to come out at the end of June 2005.Ridge Racer is alot more fun than NFS:UR and Midnight Club 3 SHOULD BE better than NFS (I have faith in Rockstar).

    So Need for Speed does NOT get my recommendation.You should pass on this one (I'm selling my copy to some s*cker on Ebay).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Need for Speed: Underground Rivals......
    Need for Speed: Underground Rivals is everything you know and love about the Underground series but in portable form. Ditching the open city environment of Underground 2 in favor of racing like you did the first Underground, Need for Speed Underground Rivals delivers the goods of pure street racing and it does so in style. It should be mentioned, though, that certain elements of Underground 2 were also added to make this version of the Underground series a step above the console versions.Compete against rivals in 10 all-new tracks, and customize as well as compete against high-performance tuner cars from the U.S. and Japan. You'll be just as amazed with Rivals as you were when you first saw Need for Speed Underground on the PS2. The sense of speed is blistering. Control and handling is dead-on. And, the graphics are simply amazing(just check out the wet-slick streets you race on as well as the motion blur of the lights as you pass by or the sleek look of the cars you race in and tune up). Out of them all, this has to be my favorite thus far. The one thing I love most about Rivals is the riveting soundtrack you're listening to while you race. Loaded with lots of your favorite artists, it'll, definitely, keep the excitement going while you race...believe me.
    I've read reviews where people go on about how Ridge Racers is so much better a racing game on the PSP(only because it supports 8 players in multiplayer while Rivals supports 2). In my opinion, the only game to ever hold a candle to the Underground series is the Midnight Club series. Until the PSP version of Midnight Club comes out, Rivals will be the ultimate street racing champ in my book and my most favorite racing game of all. Besides, Ridge Racers is an entirely different type of racing game and should be judged on its' own merits(which it is, indeed, an awesome game itself).
    Street Racing fans and regular racing fans alike will love NFSU Rivals for what is....a classy street racer that will keep them occupied for weeks.



    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Street Racer
    While you may want to wait for Midnight Club PSP, (comes out 6/14), this game will appeal to a street racing fan or even maybe a casual racer.There are over 60 cars and graphics are very much like Juiced, a game for PS2.They have added 2 cars to this game and now have over 60 very different cars that you can fully customize.This game has a good career mode.One thing that was an improvement from NFSU2 on the consoles was all the extra driving around.For people who are new to NFS, in Underground 2, EA made you drive around the city to look for races mostly so they could show you all of the endorcements that the game got.Overall, this game is nearly identical to NFSU , but is in no way a port.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good but not good enough
    This is fun but the graphics are bad.They are the graphics you would expect from a ds (horible). its worth a rental but don't buy it.This is not nerly as good as everyone says.I think everyone who gave this a five must have rated it the first day befor the relize how quicly it gets old (It gets old very Quikly).I think they also did not consider the horible graphics when rating this.don't let the other revewers fool you.

    as a final statment the graphics are the worst graphics I have seen on any psp game so far.

(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.

    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

    5-0 out of 5 stars most fun in a starwars game till its sequel
    i cant posibly think anyone would hate this game if they played it. It is most fun/funny starwars game yet. a perfect 10. BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is not just a kids game!You will LOVE this game!
    This game is fun for the whole family.I figured at first that my little boy would be the only one to really play this game.My husband and I both thought it would be fun but we did'nt realize just how much fun until we are now hooked to playing it!!!The sounds of the light sabers are just like the real movie and the people all look just like real legos!The game is'nt very difficult but it holds your interest.There is over 30+ playable charaters to use.The game combines all 3 of the first movies in to one full game.I really like that about it, its like having 3 different games but for one price.There is tons of hidden things to find in this game.I highly recommend it for kids and adults!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My sons 6-11 love it
    I haven't played the game, but I got it for my Star Wars fan son when it first came out. All of my sons like this game and keep returning to it. They are figuring out how to unlock the 4th episode level. If you have a young one and they like Legos and Star Wars, I guess you have a winner here.

    5-0 out of 5 stars May the fun be with you
    Lego Star Wars is the greatest Star Wars game on earth. When you destroy something or someone it shatters into a buch of lego pieces. Star Wars+Lego=Fun. And its not only for kids. Many adults enjoy playing Lego Star Wars. The game is extremly fun. You can use the force to throw yor enemies or you can take your light saber out and chop em into lego peices. Or you can blast them with your pistol if you are Padme.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beware the Inch-High Jedi
    This is probably the best Stars Wars game made.As far as i'm concerened, any Stars WArs game where you get to use a lightsaber is the best (there are enough games with blasters).When you turn on the game you start out in Dexters Diner, a place where you chose your level and buy characters.You get to play through episodes 1,2 and 3.
    WHats good is that if you haven't seen episode 3, the game doesn't spoil that much, it gives you enouggh info so that you know what you're doing in the game, but not enough to spoil the movie.While you are travelling through the star wars universes, you collect LEGO studs, the currency of the game.At dexters diner, you can buy characters with them.YOu can also buy hints and extras, but I think they are a waste of studs.After you collected enough characters from the light side and dark side, you can go out to ddexters parking lot to wacth and join unorganized fights.They are a little easy but fun. When you collect suds you're jedi meter fills up and if you fill it up to the top you will get a piece of a special ship.TO complete fill the jedi meter in every level.You also collectt mini kit parts which you can use to make ships to put in the parking lot.If you get every ship you will unlock the games ultimate secret (sorry i don't know what it is).A good way to collect studs is to get all the mini kit pieces in a level, which will give you about 50,000 studs.Try to complete the ones in boss levels because they are small levels and pieces are easy to find.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Coolest Little GadgetEver
    My daughter bought this toy from Target and brought it home. We were playing with it in the living room, and after it guessed three of the items I was thinking of, I was addicted. Ive been borrowing it and bringing it to work. This is the perfect party toy to leave out on the coffee table. We have played with this on the subway and people just crack up because 9 out of 10 times it is correct. Totally amazing and neat gizmo for adults and kids. I have decided to buy myself one now, and this will be a cool little present for christmas for everyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Out of this world fun!
    When I tested this at the store, I was instantly convinced to bring it home and share with everyone in the family.Everyone was amazed, you can see very surprised facial expressions from most of them, and spooked expressions from others thinking it was possessed (reallly funny!).My Mom began referring to it as "he" instead of an "it" - - it's a very smart little computer. It exactly guessed a carburator, urethra, star, it called love an "emotion", rainbow and on and on.I would say it gets it right 99% of the time. Highly recommend this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great machine
    A fun, easy to use game that will keep you occupied for hours. A great gift idea or to use at your home/office, this machine asks 20 questions to narrow your choices and is also good for parties. Highly recommend.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very good
    this toy is very cool
    i just got it yesterday
    it is cheap(as in prices)
    it is very educational that i brought it to school and my teacher loved it
    if you dont have it get it

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very impressive and fun!
    I just tried the 20Q with my coworkers and it was astonishing.I am used to small electronic games fitting into the "who buys these things" category because they usually disappoint or don't hold your interest.Not this one.It is correct most of the time (at least so far).It correctly identified many common objects but even correctly deduced concepts such as "love."Let me suggest another game -- you pick something you know it won't know and then pretend it is describing whatever you were thinking of.I picked myself, answered the questions accordingly and it came up with "Soulmate!" ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best racing sim on the market
    This is, without doubt, the best racing sim on the market. Models are outstanding, physics are tops, sounds are awesome, support is excellent, and the 3 new add-ons are definitely meant for the American market: the creators of GTR have already added 3 ovals to satisfy left-turn-itis... You have 3 levels of difficuly: Arcade, Semi-pro, and Simulation. Simulation is very difficult, while Arcade is quite easy. Lots of cars, lots of tracks, lots of options. Have fun!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars drivers heaven !
    this is the best experience i have ever made in racing game !
    forget about gran tourismo 4. i am now on the game since 1 week and playing it nearly 12 hours a day. my opinion now, this is the most realistic and hardcore game of all categories...

    and i love the porsche`s in it... :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars GTR FIA GT Racing Game PC
    If you have any interest in racing games, and you own a PC, then this is the game for you. Two words: Incredibly Detailed. You can customize nearly every aspect of the game.For example, want to drive in the cockpit view but can't see over the dashboard? No problem - use the hotkeys to adjust the drivers seat. You can even tell the game to add driver head movement so you can actually look through a turn the way real drivers do.You can adjust every part of the car to make it handle exactly how you want it to handle.
    The graphics are fantastic.You can adjust so many graphic settings that it should run on most computers.The car detials are exact, though most of the race car sponsors are unfamiliar to me.The cars have different paint schemes and customizations.Even the cockpits are exact replicas of the real sports cars.
    The gameplay is near perfect.That is, you can modify the game to make it as hard as you want it to be.The cars all exhibit real physics with down forces and tire wear just to name a few.The game gives you three modes to play, from Arcade mode to Simulation.Remember, this game is designed as a simulator, so the game has a steep learning curve.I recommend a good two analog stick game pad to get the most out the game. And practice changing the setting to make the game comfortable to play.
    Overall, the game is fun and deep, with excellent graphics and sound.What more could you want in your race car driving simulation?

    ---Update: For a game with so many settings, you can't adjust the number of laps in the arcade mode.Seems like they should have added that.Also, the game is very hard.I have spent most of my time playing in Arcade mode.Just be prepared to practice, ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the first
    Fire Emblem was one of the best games on the gba.Final Fantasy Tactics advance was another one.What this game does is take elements from both of them and combines them into one of the best handheld games ever.The first fire emblem was an extremely challenging game.This one is too, but now you can roam the map and join in skirmishis as in ffta.The character upgrade choices also make it superior to the first game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better Sequel to a Great Game
    It is a time of peace, suddenly, your country of Renais is attacked by your ally, Grado.They are after the Sacred Stone, but why would they want the very thing that sealed the Demon King away centuries ago?

    Welcome back to the realm of Fire Emblem.This installment had nothing to do with the other game (which is a little disappointing) but it still is as good as the first.So, what's new this time around, well first off, there's a difficulty selection available from the start (you had to unlock it in the first).There's beginner, which explains the game and has a tutorial, normal, for those of us who played through the first one and know much of the controls, and difficult, for those who want a challenge.

    I got to say that I'm glad that they've added this feature so we don't have to listen to the idiotic tutorial (its good to look at it if your a beginner, but its still annoying).Anyway, the core of this game is essentially the same with some added features.

    These added features include that of choosing what you want your character to turn into.For example, in the first game, thieves could only become an assassin.However, in this game you have a choice of an assassin, which is a killing machine (if you have the Killing Edge equipped), or become a Rougue, which is a thief who doesn't need lockpicks to open doors and chests.This adds a lot to the game too.

    The other neat feature is the ability to walk on the world map and choose where you want to go.This system, I would compare it to that of FF Tactics Advance because you can run into monsters who are also new to the series.

    There's also a Tower of Valni that is like an endurance round.You can leave whenever you want to, and its not required that you go there.

    The storyline this time around is predictable but still can be classified as good.I mean I figured from the start what was going to happen, and most of your predictions will come true.

    My favorite thing about this game are the main characters, Eirika and Ephraim.They are twins but seem to be complete opposites.Eirika is the peace loving princess who hates war, and Ephraim is the one who runs off trying to find pride in fighting.

    So, should you pick up this game?Yes, if you liked the first one, but wanted more or if you haven't played the first.No, if you are tired of the gameplay from the first game because all you are going to get is the recycled form of the original.

    PROS
    - Good game with good stratergy ideas
    - You have the choice to choose if you want the tutorial
    - The added walk on the map feature is very useful
    - The ability to choose what your unit will become

    CONS
    - The story is way too predictable
    - A lot of this game is recycled from the old game (can be good or bad)

    5-0 out of 5 stars I haven't seen this yet
    i haven't seen this game yet, but i'm sure that pigs are cool. you may find that this looks kqueer, but you know that it's true. just sayin hi to all those solar hills sons in this world

    2-0 out of 5 stars As a game, Sacred Stones is average. as a sequal, its a joke
    Basically, what we have here is the same game.
    Seriously. Intelli Sys recycled like 60% of the content from FE1(7 in jpn)? The only "new" things here are what you'd already expect in a sequel anyway: a new plot and new character designs.

    Why would anyone pay full price to play exactly the same game all over again? It boggles the mind. On the pc we have what are called "expansion packs". This "sequel" does nothing new what the previous game hasn't already done. And the previous one, which I've reviewed, wasn't that impressive either.

    In short, go ahead and buy this if you liked the first one and want more of the same. If the previous Fire Emblem didn't do much for you however, don't expect anything different.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
    This game had pretty big shoes to fill from the first fire emblem for gba but it certainly filled them. I really liked the choice for promoting units and the extra battles for level ups. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Totally, completely, AWESOME!! :) :) :):):)
    This game is great. The graphics are good, the variety of characters is astounding, the unlockable parts are cool. This game is awesome, action packed, funny, and cool all rolled in one. How do I know this? I've seen the trailer. I've seen many screen shots. And I've read other people's reviews. I have not even bought this game. I don't even have a penny saved up for it yet(I'm saving for something else). But, IF: you have the money; IF: You like games that has funny stuff; and IF: You just LOVE Star Wars, Legos, and Roleplaying games: THEN BUY THIS GAME! IT'S AWESOME!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome

    5-0 out of 5 stars :)
    so I felt pretty dumb buying this game.. looks like a little kids game.. sounds like a little kids game - but I love star wars! so I bought it and brought it to school - by the end of the week 5 out of 6 people I showed it to had bought it. the lego idea is really cool - I went and saw revenge of the sith and I kept thinking about how buildings would look as legos.. but anyways. I'm not even remotely good at video games - I don't think I've ever finished a game in my life.. though i have many. I haven't finished this one yet - but I have high hopes. This isn't hard to play - when you finish levels you can go back and play through them again and with different characters that youve unlocked - which is very amusing to a star wars fan.. :)

    2-0 out of 5 stars Too short and gets old FAST
    I'll make this short, I BEAT THIS GAME THE SAME DAY I GOT IT. It barley covers episodes I, II and III, note how on the description it says that the game covers the most exciting and memorable scenes from all three movies? WELL THAT'S ALL THEY GIVE YOU! The day after i got it it was still kinda fun but then i played it a little more and it just got plain BORING.DON'T make the same mistake I did. I would rather save my money and buy actual legos or a different game. ... Read more
