    4-0 out of 5 stars mostly response to the xbox 360 fanboy
    to make this relevant: i own the orig ps2 and love it, so therefore i would love gameplay on this. as for the differences i understand that there are technical issues but for peopl elike some of my dorm friends who only play casually and value space this is perfect (they love it).

    to the xbox 360 kid review: honestly, get your facts straight before spouting nonsense like that. i wont touch the tech aspects (such as the different TYPES of ram involved in both units, the amount of vram, the teraflops they can poop out, floating point numbers, or any of that). what i will talk about is your talk of gameplay. it is true that square is departing from the ps. oh no, ffxi is coming to xbox! scary. oh wait no it's not. k i'm being a jerk, yes it's true that the games aren't going to be exclusive to ps3. however, I've got two words for you, and this is a HUGE deal in console wars: backwards compatibility. and before you spout of "the 360 is backwards compatible" it's only partially backwards compatible. on top of that the playstation line has a far larger game library to draw from.

    i'm not claiming one's gonig to be better than the other, but i'm defending the ps line before people just write it off when the xbox 360 comes out this year.

    and as the previous poster said, ign does NOT claim that the xbox 360 is far superior.

    and also the ps2 slim is nice if you're only casually using it and need the space/decor.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Should Have Been Free!!
    Sony thinks that they can make up for the PS2s short-comings by releasing a new one right before the next-gen consoles are released?! This should have been exchanged for all of the old PS2s cause they break the DAY after the warranty finishes. Sony has lost yet another customer. Save your cash for the Xbox 360.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Original PlayStation 2 is better
    Don't buy this, the original PlayStation 2 is better than the new design.

    5-0 out of 5 stars In response to "a kids review"
    this "kids review" stated that ign.com said the 360 was more powerfull overall.they said nothing of the sort.in fact, with only number to go off of, ign was reluctant to call a winner.

    however, if tech specs are all we have, then the PS3 is clearly the winner.pushing 2 teraflops, it's twice as fast as the 360, and boasts a GPU twice as powerful as the top-of-the-line NVIDIA GPU on the market today that usually run about $500 apiece.this does NOT mean that the PS3 will cost $1000 dollars (that would be ludicrous), but it DOES mean that it's graphics prowess will be unmatched.combine that with dual RAM of 256 each, plus a 7xCell processor (that's 7 microprocessors in one chip!) verses 360's 3 core chip, and you can start to see the advantages.add bluetooth wireless controllers (7!) and it's clearly the winner.

    5-0 out of 5 stars XBXO 1.5 vs. PS2

    I don't even know if the XBOX 360 can compete with the PS2 this fall. The PS2 is releasing great games. XBOX 360 games look mediocre and not next generation.
    Microsoft can release a new system ,but without games to back it up they will end up losing more money on their ambitious project.

    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. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Guild wars got it RIGHT
    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

    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 Awesome!, even with the knowledge of Ruby and Sapphire!
    Hi, I am really excited about this game it just brings the Hoenn region to life and installs new tactics for creating as better gameplay experience. I plasyed this at one of the game stores and have not yet bought it yet, but that game has moved to the top of my list for games to buy!

    Sincerely, Terrence mcgee

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game..is awesome! Much better than Ruby and Sapphire!
    This game is much more funner and challenging. After you defeat the elite four, you can go to the Battle Frontier. The Battle Frontier is absolutley awesome! Over all, I will give this game a 9.3 outta 10! Thank you nintendo for making this game so much better! For those who don't have the game, you will love it! It's much more advanced than boring old Ruby or Sapphire. IT'S much more FUNNER! And it's only a measily little price of 35 bucks. That's a pretty good deal! So get the game today! It's AWESOME!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Few Flaws
    This game, overall, was very good. I believe that even those who have Ruby or Sapphire would like this game. One reason is the new Battle Frontier. this leaves you a major challenge once the core of the game has been completed. There are also many plot changes that make this game, overall, a good buy. ...

    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 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

    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.

    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 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 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
    this game is awesome the only bad thing about this is that you can't block the bosses lightsaber like in episode3 for gba (count dooku)
    You should buy this game it was very fun

    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

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good game but just more of the same.........
    If you played the first two games in this series you'll be right at home.You're able to run and gun more than in the past and it's nice not to be punished as much for setting off alarms.The controls, graphics (unfortunately you're usually in the dark), and sound are top notch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best X-Box Game 9.9/10
    X-Box Magazine rated this game 9.9/10 and it should have been rated as 15/10 (fifteen!).It kicks!Best features: you can save your progress at any time; you can save as quick save OR as save so you can back up to a prior save in case you blow it.Great ammo.Great storyline (I won't spoil it).Plus the online X-Box Live games rock!I just finished this game and am in mourning, waiting for Chaos Theory II...or whatever the next Splinter Cell is...They really outdid themselves.PLEASE!Publish the sequel!

    5-0 out of 5 stars AN EVOLUTION IN STEALTH GAMING
    This is by far one of my most favorite games right now. I don't really have the money to buy it but I've been renting it from the movie store, and I can't put it down. This is one of the most addicting games I've ever played. There is nothing better than sneeking behind a guy so close you can read the label on his coat and then stabbing your knife into his back and dropping him without a sound, or ripping your hand through a paper thin canvis and pulling a guy through it. This game has more ways to take out your enemies than the first two. Such as now being able to choose between lethal attacks when your near an enemy or just knocking them out. One lethal move is when you approach an enemy from the front, Fisher pulls out his knife and grabs the guy head and forces it down while stabbing him below the shoulder blade all by pulling the right trigger. Or if you pull the left trigger and your behind someone then Fisher will pull out his knife and hit them with the handle in the side of the head and knock them out. There are countless other things fisher can do to take out his enemies. The enemy AI is amazingly done, they will notice little things like a door open or a light turned off. My complaints are that the maps are horrible, they provide almost no help. Also some of the missions have some really hard puzzles to solve, for those reasons I would give it four and a half stars but I'll settle for five.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It Rocks In HD ! ! !
    I PUT THE GAME ON MY HDTV :)
    & IT LOOKS SOOOO GOOD!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You can SAVE your progress at ANY time!
    I never got in to the first two Splinter Cell games, so you don't have to be a veteran of the series to enjoy this third installment. I'll start with my 2 favorite things about this game. In Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, you can pause the game at ANY moment while playing and save your progress EXACTLY where you're standing. When you load your game from a saved file, you start exactly at the spot where you saved, NOT way back at the beginning of the level, NOT at some prior checkpoint, but right where you were at that moment you saved your game. When you know you're about to walk into a tricky situation, take a moment to save, then proceeed. If you botch the job, re-load your saved game and try again from the exact point you saved at without having to restart the whole level all over again. I LOVE THIS! EVERY game should have this "instant save anytime" feature! The other great thing about this game that EVERY game should have is 360-degree camera control: you use the controller's right thumbstick to move the camera anywhere you want to get the view you need of your environment. Snapshot saving and total camera control make SUCH a BIG difference in eliminating the frustration that comes with so many other games.

    This is a game about espionage set in the fictitious near future. You play a stealthy field operative for a top secret arm of the U. S. government, running covert operations that the government cannot legally acknowledge. Each mission consists of a set of objectives like "find out who is providing arms to these rebel guerillas" or "hack these systems and plant some decoy files."You gather information by observing the environment, eavesdropping on conversations, interrogating people, searching file cabinets, and accessing computer terminals. You spend most of your time sticking to the shadows to stay out-of-sight and keeping silent to avoid detection.

    You must complete your primary objectives to progress to the next mission. You are scored a success percentage at the end of every mission, but score doesn't count for anything except personal satisfaction. You achieve high scores by not alerting anyone to your presence and not killing anyone, rendering enemies unconscious in a variety of ways (except when your objective is to eliminate a particular target). When you see people in your path, you can either find a way to sneak around them or you can sneak up and grab them from behind to interrogate them, then choke them unconscious to remove them as threats (be sure to hide the bodies so others don't notice your handiwork). Stealth and low body-counts are encouraged, but you can still progress through the game if you don't score highly on your stealth tactics. You can tear through the game with guns blazing killing everyone if you want (except for the missions where your objective is to NOT kill anyone). But I get a kick out of sneaking aboard an ocean freighter, creeping unnoticed through over 30 armed guards, planting tracking devices on crates of illegal weapons, and escaping without anyone having a clue that I was ever there.

    This is definitely NOT a fast-paced action game. It's methodical and quiet, requiring patience and a little planning. It doesn't require lightning-fast reflexes. It's not insanely difficult, but it's a good challenge. The graphics and sound are very good (but the music is funky). The controls are easy to get the hang of. You can access an in-game map of your terrain from the pause menu (another feature that EVERY game should have), which helps to keep on track and avoid getting lost. The game has somewhat of a realistic feel to it, so don't count on arcade-like fantasy stuff like being able to double-jump 3 stories into the air or pick up power-ups that make you invincible for a short time. The story is engaging, and you're equipped with some pretty cool spy gadgets. This is a very well-put-together game. It feels a bit like watching a "Mission Impossible" type of spy movie. ...

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great fun, but not a repeat
    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 Great Game, Awesome Sequel
    First of all, I'm not 13, so don't expect a illiterate review. But on to the game! This game is very good in many areas, but it does have its share of flaws. I love the story line on this game, because you can choose to become a powerful Jedi or a fearsome Sith, which in turn makes the replay value high because you'll want to beat it twice to see both outcomes. Also, the weapons in this game rock. You can wield anything from plasma torches and lasers to mines and lightsabers. The color of your lightsaber, as the Star Wars junkies like me reading this know, depends on which side of the force you choose. Give in to the Sith(which is what I did) and you'll get a flashy red lightsaber. Become a Jedi and you'll wield a nice blue one. Either way you choose, the story line and action is great.
    Now every good game has its share of flaws, and this game is included in that category. First, the main flaw for me is the fighting. This may not bug everybody, but it does me. You actually tell the command to go into combat mode and then it fights and swings swords for you. For me, killing and destroying things is the whole purpose of fighting/RPG games. It's not that big of a deal, but it does bug me. The next flaw is the camera. I'm probably being picky on this, but when you round a, say right corner, usually you tilt the right thumbstick right. But it's the exact opposite with this one. You have to either press it left or go all the way around your character. This can be very annoying, especially if you've got a droid on your tail. Finally, the last flaw is the graphics. The characters faces and body types look good, but man the backdrops and items look terrible. As wierd as it seems, I've come to rely on Star Wars for pretty decent graphics, but it seems here they focused all on the characters and none of the surroundings. But this doesn't really take away from the game, so it may or may not bother you. It did personallybother me, considering the Xbox's standards.
    Minor Quibbles aside, this is destined to become one of the greatest RPG's ever. I've never played the original KOTOR, but I've heard it's great. Even if it's half as good as this, it will be awesome. Great job guys and all we can hope for is Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic III. Hope this helped!

    3-0 out of 5 stars What Happened?
    I have been a big fan of KOTOR games ever since the first one came out.In the first game Bioware did awsome.They came up with something new and brilliant.With KOTOR 2 i felt that that imagination was lost.this could have been due to the fact that Obsidian made this one one.THe second game was a fun game to play through twice.Which of course it what you should always do play as a good guy then as a bad guy.But after that it just lost of of its replayability.The first made me want to play the game over and over.But with this one it lost that aspect.The main problem wiht this game is that it feels sloppy.THere is so much going on that at times it is hard to keep everything straight.The first one had a great structure.It was an open ended game but it did a good job of guiding you throught the storyline.This one doesn't do that for you at all.And the sloppiness doesn't just stop at the gameplay it continues into the weapons upgrades.This was a great idea but just seemed half baked to me.Even though this game has its problems it is still a great game.The characters in this game are great to be around during the game.You can even train some of them to become jedi themselves.I enjoyed this game but was also dissapointed at the lack of the greatness that the first one held.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of The Best Games of 2004
    This game is a huge improvement over KOTOR.

    Pros: Better facial expressions, you start out in the story as a dispanded Jedi, you can pick three classes; Sentinel, Councal Member, or Knight, you can choose area of specialty; Force, Weapons, or Master, More force powers, Really high replay value

    Cons: Really their isn't really anything wrong with this game
    This is the diffibate ultimate Jedi experiance. If you want really fast lightsaber action pick up Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not even close comparing to the original!
    I'll get straight to the point since many of the other critique pretty much already mentioned what I wanted to mention.

    To be fair, KOTOR 2 is not a bad game. However, it doesn't even come close to KOTOR 1. Why is that? Because in the original game, I felt alive while playing it. The story in KOTOR 1 is simple, straight forward, yet very addictive. Even after playing KOTOR 1 the 5th time (and knowing the game inside out), I still feel very addictive to it. However, after finishing KOTOR 2 the first time, I don't even want to play it again.

    Furthermore, KOTOR 2 is more philosophical (it may be interesting, but unneccessary - look at KOTOR 1, it is so simple, yet very entertaining). While playing KOTOR 2, I have the feeling of playing it just to see how it ends, not to enjoy the game plot along the way like in KOTOR 1.

    Bottom line, after along day working or studying, if I have a choice between KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2 to play to relax my mind, I would definitely choose KOTOR 1 (eventhough I have played it dozen of times). I don't ever want to touch KOTOR II after playing it the first time because I consider a waste of my time to play KOTOR 2 the second time.

    It's just something for KOTOR team to consider!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's More "Star Wars" than "Star Wars"
    ...or perhaps I should say, KOTOR2 explores the idea of the "Force" and those who wield it with such depth as to make the Star Wars movies - and to a lesser extent, KOTOR1 - seem juvenile.

    I commend Obsidian for asking challenging questions about morality and causality, and for making characters realistically deep.It makes for a very engrossing game that plays like a great novel.

    This game would be enjoyed by anyone with an appreciation for psychology, philosophy, or the Star Wars story.It is a good sequel to KOTOR1 and sets us up nicely for a KOTOR3.

    Details: The soundtrack is terrific.The game will slow down occasionally, and I had one crash.I finished the game in 30 hours, completing most side missions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great game
    Obviously this a Tetris style puzzle game.The music is amazing and goes with the game the way a fat kid goes with cake.This game is way better than Tetris ever was.Lummies has a colorful backround and is VERY addicting.This is a very good pick up and play game.I perfer this game over Mercury although I like both.I am also an action gamer and don't even really like puzzle games!

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE BESTEST!!!!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars New twist on tetris
    I've seen a few variations of Tetris since it was first released.. well the first version I ever saw was on an Apple IIc that was a pirated and completely in russian.

    Lumines is pretty simple, form 4 small blocks of the same color into a square by shifting, sliding and spinning 4 block combos that drop from the sky.Make high score, start over. You could add on that you can also play head to head with other PSP players or try a few of the other modes with specialized goals.
    For some reason I get drawn into a cycle of playing one game after another cause I messed up just a little bit on the last one and could have done better.

    Each time you last out a level (timed, so your not penalized by making bonus points like you did in tetris), you open up a new "skin" with a different song and visual background/blocks.

    This was the third game i've bought for my psp so far and it is the most addictive.Even though its not as flashy or involved as some of the other titles, its definately packed with fun.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Tetris wishes it was as cool as Lumines
    Okay so a lot of other reviews will focus on things like the amazing music, flashy graphics, rotating skins, and so forth.But the fun of Lumines is mostly in gameplay, which requires a lot more skill than tetris ever did.

    Everybody's going to compare this game to Tetris because it has four-part pieces that fall onto the screen where you place the pieces in order to get points and clear blocks.Let me be clear in saying that this is ALL they have in common.Clearing lines in tetris is easy, and the only skill involved is being able to move the piece fast enough before it falls.

    Lumines is a whole new kind of game.Each piece is a 2x2 block where each little block is one of two colors.Your goal is to make squares of 2x2 blocks that are the same color.This sounds easy enough, but it isn't, always.Not only can you make blocks of 2x2, but these blocks can overlap each other, so a block of 3x2 works, or any other combination of shapes where the 2x2 blocks can be found.This means there's a lot of strategy in laying down a block in order to maximize the number of cubes it makes.

    What's also innovative about this game is the "timeline" which scrolls across the screen, clearing the cubes you've made.That's right, a cube doesn't disappear as soon as you've made it.. it takes a few seconds, which allows you to stack multiple pieces together to form more and more overlapping cubes before the timeline swipes them away.but if you don't do it quick enough, you'll only get part of your cube cleared and be left with the rest.

    The skill and strategy involved with dropping each piece in the right place at the right time is immense, and takes far more brainpower than tetris ever could.That's what makes this game so fun.

    Another little feature I will mention about the skins, some of them seem designed specifically to be harder to see, so that placing the blocks isn't as easy as it was with other skins.On other levels the timeline will move slower or faster, further changing the dynamics of the game (you'd think a slower timeline would let you create more blocks, but if you've got a full screen it can be a nightmare waiting for your screen to open up).

    I should point out that there are a few annoying bugs in Lumines that, for instance, won't save your scores all the time.The instructions are also pretty unclear about the details of the vs. modes, where you can attack your opponent (which moves the border of your screen over one, giving you more room to work and your opponent less), but they don't tell you exactly how to attack.Finally from what i've read, you cannot score higher than 999,999 which is a bit ridiculous for a system of this level. Hopefully someday there will be a Lumines 2 that fixes these problems, but in the meantime this game is good enough for me.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Perpetual Harmony
    Tetris quite frankly bores me.It dominated a large sum of my time and now I dread its remade counterparts.Why do I enjoy Lumines?It breaks out of the norm so many block puzzle-games take.A new perspective and enjoyable mix-up of gameplay makes it a favorite for the PSP, although I would not go as far as calling the game revolutionary or mind-blowing.

    If you've played "Rez" or any other games set to music and beats you already know how these games strike an incredibly fun chord, and why they are must buys.But if not the I'll let you in on the twist, with each stage clear new eye-candy appears in the background and a tune begins.With the beat of the song a timer swipes across the screen stack as many of the square style blocks before the time between beats is over and rack up combos.Then watch to your amusement as your towers fall causing chain-reactions multiplying in more blocks made, and a higher score.

    I admit to playing the game in a trance-like state watching the blocks flow and hearing the music blend to find myself going on half an hour of play without noticing.Unlocking new songs, and backgrounds give just enough initiative to keep playing you up into the night.

    Overall Lumines is fun but not my pick over a console game with more of a story.It's perfect for a portable platform and a great game for the PSP.
