Burnout 3: Takedown

Game Description:  Racing gamers and adrenaline junkies are invited to get behind the wheel and experience unprecedented speed and action. Burnout 3: Takedown takes the action racing series even further than previous installments, now featuring a unique 'crash and burn' racing concept and a one-of-a-kind special effects engine that delivers spectacular visuals. The intensity heats up as players race, and often crash, their way through oncoming traffic in an attempt to claim the top spot.

Freedom Fighters – Second Opinion

Brad's right—Freedom Fighters' juvenile take on world politics is indeed a missed opportunity, particularly during these volatile times. It could have been the videogame equivalent of Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket or Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front. Instead, the game is content being as politically shallow as Stripes.

Freedom Fighters

Game Description: Freedom: The Battle for Liberty Island is set in a world where the Soviet Union won the Cold War. Now a fierce conflict is beginning to unfold in the streets of America. Red Army troops are pouring across the borders of Mexico and Canada shortly after a nuclear missile is unleashed on Washington D.C. Chaos sets in when breaking news informs Americans that their President has been killed and the Russians have invaded the country. Players take on the role of a blue-collar worker who evolves into a charismatic and fearless freedom fighter obsessed with finding and freeing his brother, who has been taken hostage along with other New Yorkers by the Soviets. You must recruit and lead an army of urban guerillas to take on the Soviet threat in the streets of New York City.

Freedom Fighters – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence

Freedom Fighters – Review

One school of thought says that videogames are pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. Taking a different view, some suggest that the power of a well-crafted interactive experience can be more significant than an afternoon of frivolous distraction. The answer likely lies somewhere in between, but for any game, it's important to consider the content and the context in which it is couched.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers – Second Opinion

Erin's right when she says that The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers works surprisingly well as a beat 'em up, but I think the reason why it works so well doesn't have that much to do with notions of Good and Evil. When I look at the stories Tolkien has created, I see a grand legend.

The Sims (PS2/Xbox/GameCube) – Review

For those whose should-know-better stubbornness can go round for round with that of the game's level designers, amazingly and in spite of its crudities and failings, Pursuit Force's pull factor never really wanes.

The Sims (PS2/Xbox/GameCube) – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Mature Sexual Themes, Mild Violence

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers – Review

While gamers who are not fans of The Lord Of The Rings will likely find The Two Towers to be nothing more than an average action title (especially given its short length of twelve missions), I feel that the true test of any licensed game is whether it is able to hold up under the scrutiny of the fans. The answer in this case is yes.
