A look at five features removed from the game that should make a comeback.
Best Buy has inadvertently (or purposefully) leaked more info on this year's FIFA.
A look at what EA Sports' new game(s) which are planned to be revealed at E3 might be...
- Madden NFL 06 Superstar: Producer Phil Fraiser Interview and Video Blowout (Multi)
Game Informer: "Say you want to playing just a basic game or you might not want it to be as in-depth as the game is with the QB Vision - can you turn that off?"
Phil Frasier: "You can. There is an option in settings to disable it and it can be disabled per user so say if Iím playing you and you want to use it and I donít, I can actually turn it off while you keep it on. So that way you get all those precision elements and all that control and all the bonuses and I can disable it and receive no penalty."
- L.A. Rush Preview and Movies (PS2, Xbox, PC)
"L.A. Rush looks to live up to its namesake for its nonstop arcade action, nice variety of vehicles, and slick presentation. Letís hope the still unseen areas of L.A. are as entertaining as what weíve witnessed so far, but it seems like Midwayís going in the right direction. If you had fun tearing through San Francisco, itís time to terrorize L.A."
"So we got a game started and grabbed a couple Xbox controllers. First thing we noticed is that EA hasn't started to make use of their ESPN license just yet. The pre-game show uses EA's own commentators, and all the graphical overlays are reminiscent of previous games. But what we did see were a lot of new animations and cut-scenes."
"Control remains the final frontier for wireless gaming, and it's a tough issue for developers to contend with. At its core, Wimbledon 2005 is a decent tennis game that doesn't completely triumph over the limitations of its platform. Your performance will improve greatly as you play, but you'll still be cheap for using the automatic swing mechanic. Maria Sharapova Tennis is a superior choice all the way around."
"The game is a port of the successful PlayStation 2 and Xbox street racing game. The game should be out in the US right now."
"Codemasters have released the playable demo for their upcoming cricket game, Brian Lara International Cricket."
"Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition is one of the best arcade racers on the market. For racing fans that arenít into the simulation thing of having to keep your finger on the brakes the entire time, racing in circles and moving slow, this game is for you. Fast moving, action-packed, wicked customization options and great music; you really canít get much better than this."
- More Pro Evolution Soccer 5 Screenshots (Multi)
"Konami has seized upon Brazil's fabulously entertaining demolition of Argentina in Wednesday's Confederations Cup Final by releasing three new screenshots of Brazil playing Argentina in Pro Evolution Soccer 5."
- Formula One 05 Review (PS2 - 7/10)
"F1 2005 is genuinely capable of being one of the most intense and comprehensive takes on Formula One available on the PS2. On the track the controls are punchy, the spectacle convincing enough and the simulation perhaps excessive, which guarantees it a large audience. And the inclusion this year of ten-player online options (albeit limited to 50Hz display mode only, rather than the options of 60Hz and progressive-scan which make it into the rest of the game) is a darn sight more impressive than last year's ghost car effort - and works as well as any PS2 Online game might be expected to do. But whether you'll enjoy it probably comes down to that question of how you'd learn to swim. If F1 compels you and you don't mind home-schooling, then this is a good buy. Otherwise you might want to stick with Gran Turismo."
- MLB 2K5 (Xbox 88/100)
"MLB 2K5 is not the best baseball video game on the market, but that does not mean its bad. The presentation, graphics, and audio, as well as improvements in the online mode help overcome the gameís weaknesses. The game needs gameplay tweaking and an improved GM Career mode for next yearís version, but on the whole this game is definitely worthy of a purchase."
- MLB (PSP - 85/100)
"Despite a few shortcomings, this game is a blast to play. It is the best handheld baseball game I have played. This is due in large part to the easy pickup and play nature of the game. Itís not a full simulation yet itís not an arcade slugfest either. Itís one of those games that gets the balance just right."

- Burnout Revenge Demo Videos (PS2, Xbox)

- Mario Superstar Baseball Videos (GC)
- Madden Premiere Party (Sports)
- Tiger Woods 06: The Preview (Sports)
- Pro Evolution Soccer 5 Screenshots (PS2, Xbox, PC)
- Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Screenshots (PSP)
- Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Gameplay Footage 1-2 and Video Review (PSP)
- L.A. Rush Hands-On Preview (PS2)
"Considering the two titles that arrived just before Enthusia, the game seems to have been stuck between a rock and a hard place. Thanks to GT4 and Forza, the expectations on a driving game were elevated to a point at which Enthusia finds a lot of trouble to even compete. Were the game released in January or even at some point in winter of 2004, the hiccups of the game mightíve come across differently."
- Tigar Hare Revs Up Project Gotham Racing 3 Trailer (X360)
"The HDRI photo-real trailer dramatically exemplifies the games slogan, ďLife Begins at 170,Ē as it introduces three high-end race cars from the game, the Ferrari F430, the Lamborghini Murcielago and the Saleen S7, as they streak in furious competition through the streets of Gotham."
- FlatOut Instruction Video #1 (Xbox)
"FlatOut delivers a thrilling combination of high-octane racing, smash-em-up demolition derby action and death defying stunts propelling the driver through the windshield."
