"Most sports video games are arcade or arcade-like representations of the sport, where the gamer with the quickest reflexes usually reigns supreme.

That isn't the case here. Konami's Winning Eleven series has always been about simulating the real sport, and their latest release, World Soccer Winning Eleven 9 rules the pitch with whip-smart A.I., and soccer game play that's designed for the hardcore fan."

We have just posted our MLB '06: The Show review. Find out what Shawn Drotar had to say about it.
"Last year's finest PSP sports title returns for 2006 with more refined game play, an unbelievably good broadcast experience, and new online capabilities. The lack of roster options are glaring, however, and the interminable load times take some of the shine off of the overall package.
That said, MLB '06: The Show is still the best sports game on the PSP, as its numerous good qualities far outweigh its few flaws."

Test Drive Unlimited Preview (360)

XboxCore has posted their preview of Test Drive Unlimited.
"As with any 360 game, TDU looks pretty good. It is not quite at the level of graphical “wow” that GRAW and Oblivion have displayed but the game is still something to behold. I’m sure the people at Atari will take advantage of the 360’s amazing ability to pull off realistic HDR lighting to give some truly melting moments to your HDTV (racing through the Islands during sunset is the best example that comes to mind). The licensed cars include Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Dodge, Mercedes, Saleen, Shelby and Jaguar to name a few. The only confirmed motorcycle license is Ducati. You can bet that the models for these vehicles will be just as detailed as anything PGR3 put out there and maybe even more so since the team at Atari has had more time to mess with the Xbox 360."

"If you would have told me it was going to be March before I would get a chance to play an Xbox 360 college basketball game, I would have told you that you were crazy. But here we are in the middle of March and College Hoops 2K6 just hit the shelves. There are multiple reasons behind the delay, but it’s possible that releasing a game during the excitement of "March Madness "could be a good thing. While many of us are bitter that it took until March for the game’s release, many of us are huge basketball fans who are happy that the gaming's best basketball series has finally come to the Xbox 360."
