A look at what EA Sports' new game(s) which are planned to be revealed at E3 might be...
"If you are a fan of simulation racers and have been looking forward to this game, the wait is over. I would highly recommend going out and picking up a copy of this game."
"Overall NCAA Football 2006 offers up a pretty impressive range of new features for all you college football fans. The new Race for the Heisman mode gives you a great opportunity to get a feel for the game from a player perspective, while the rest of the different modes compliment the new additions. The lure of online play for both the PS2 and Xbox only sweeten the deal."
"As one of the "Other", tip the balance between the forces of Light and Darkness using your racing skills. Choose your side wisely as every vehicle possesses a unique magic power that may lead to victory or ruin."
"That’s right, despite the continuing woes of the NHL, you’ll still get to enjoy hockey action on your Xbox with NHL 06 this fall. This year’s game is all about control as you’ll be able to deke and dipsy-doo like a pro."
"Asphalt Urban GT is a solid racing game that will last most racing fans a decent amount of time. At times it feels a little rushed, and the game play can become very frustrating, (especially when a bad collision loses an entire race in the last few stages) but the game has licensed cars, famous cities, runs at 60 frames per second and is very easy to pick up and play."
"Take your game to the street - literally! The venerable
NBA Streetseries makes it's debut on the PSP platform, so now you can hoop it up anywhere. Does the game lose anything in translation, or is it still the king of the arcade court?"
"Online play is now standard after it did well for Konami in the PS2's "Live Ware Evolution" this January, with a few refinements. Obviously online support was in the European Xbox version of Pro Evolution Soccer 4 and to a certain extent the PC version (although its peer-to-peer implementation was lazy to say the least), but Konami only releases the series on PS2 in Japan, so its inclusion there is good news for PS2 owners here."
"Enthusia racing is not going to be to everyones liking, players who want to try something a bit different may take a liking to it but despite all the nice new touches there are better racing games on PS2."
"Ultimately, I felt unsatisfied with Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition. I suppose I don't have the same love for cars that Detroit and the West Coast have, nor the love for arcade games that Frogger and George Costanza have, considering how much more I enjoyed Gran Turismo 4. The "special moves" associated with the cars felt unfulfilling, as I couldn't help but think how stupid it was to drive in slow motion or plow through opponents like Mr. Plow of 742 Evergreen Terrace. Online play was a huge relief, and is, arguably, where the meat of the game lies, and I could probably see myself returning to play soley online. At its heart, the racing was quality and the tuning options were sound, but it just felt like so much more could have been done."
"Even though THUG 2 Remix has just a few new features, stripped down it's still just a port of the PS2 game. This is not a bad thing. It still has miles and miles of replay value. It nice to know a game like this can be taken anywhere. Because there's really nothing better than being able to grind rails, spin nines and land the big combo in true portable style. A true Hawk fan will consider this an excellent addition to their PSP library."
"Yes it's simple and probably meant for kids, and you can get a small amount of fun out of Wrestlemania 21 for a relatively short period of time, but behind the shiny superstars it has a pork pie for a brain. That's the most positive thing we can say, sadly."
"Electronic Arts announced today that Raymond Felton, point guard for the 2005 NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Champion, North Carolina Tar Heels, will serve as cover athlete and spokesman for NCAA® March Madness® 06, scheduled to be released this fall under the EA SPORTS™ brand."
"Namco Hometek Inc. today released new screenshots, a trailer and the official box shot for "MotoGP4," the latest installment in the acclaimed motorcycle racing series exclusively for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system. Featuring all the official bikes and riders from multiple engine classes and a realistic physics system, "MotoGP4" delivers the most authentic racing experience ever on two wheels. "MotoGP4" will be available in stores this August and is not yet rated."
