About The Jeep® Brand
Freedom, authenticity, mastery and the capability to go anywhere are the hallmarks of the Jeep brand worldwide. It is a reputation earned during more than six decades of SUV leadership. The launch last year of the award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty CRD ("Clean Running Diesel") and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited represented new models and expansion of the Jeep brand. Later this year, Jeep continues to grow with the introduction of the Jeep Commander, an all-new three-row SUV. Jeep Trail Rated communicates the legendary Jeep capability that is designed into every Jeep 4x4. As the brand's lineup expands, Jeep vehicles will continue to be what they have always been -- the most capable.

"Besides five direct-feed gameplay movies, we've got four EXCLUSIVE movies from a demo video showing off nearly every single feature in the game. If you want to know more about Enthusia Professional Racing, you don't not want to miss these movies."
"Since April of 1964 the Ford Mustang has sold over 8 million vehicles and has generated a strong following of enthusiasts, aftermarket manufacturers, websites, and publications - all dedicated to this iconic vehicle."
"Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition has everything that an import tuner nut could ever want. Heck, this game has everything a racing fan could ever want. What it lacks in graphical delivery the audio department and sense of speed more then make up for."
"A couple of notes here from a defensive point of view. If you lock onto a receiver the whole time, the defense will get a SLIGHT awareness boost. This seeks to duplicate the idea of a QB staring down a receiver. You can also look off a receiver. Lock onto one receiver, switch your vision and make the throw. This will give the defense a SLIGHT awareness decrease. Bear in mind, that this is a minor + or -. You aren't going to look at a receiver and have the whole defense chase him so that you can quickly switch and catch a guy wide open. It will be a gradual difference as it should be."
"Ridge Racer DS also provides an opportunity to play against five friends with only one cartridge (using the DS download function). And while Gamestyle hasn't yet sampled this feature, we're reliably informed that it's nothing less than extremely playable; a sentiment which sums up Ridge Racer DS perfectly - and confirms its reanimated status in the highly-competitive racing genre."
"Overall this is an excellent title particularly considering its price. An absolute must for Hockey fans as well as anyone who likes sports games. It would be worth buying even at full price as it looks and feels every bit as good as a very good full price game."
"It's not all bad though. What the graphics lack in detail and effects, they certainly make up for with speed, having courses that hare past in a blur of mud, sweat and tears. We're also quite smitten with the multiplayer modes and track builder, which probably double the amount of time you'll spend with the game. This is a decent package that's worthy of more than a weekend run-through. Just a touch more realism and we might have recommended it."
"Rumble Roses is a wrestling game that had quite a bit of potential which was lost when the developers decided to make it girls only and include modes that really move it away from being a serious game. It's a shame because under the skin of absolutely stupid game modes, there is a fairly accomplished wrestling game."

"For the first time in 10 years, the Madden NFL Football franchise has revolutionized its passing game—giving Madden NFL 06 the most groundbreaking and innovative offensive arsenal ever created. The new QB Vision Control lets you scan the field, look off defenders, and make perfect throws within your quarterback’s unique field of vision."

"Head to head against the competition, I think that EA wins out. They have a fantastic online setup which certainly tips the scale to their advantage. Plus, I think that a baseball game, above all else, should be entertaining."
"Ridge Racer DS feels like a gaming anachronism. It is out of place in this time period, a visit from the past. It retains some of the fun originally found in the N64 title from five years ago, but mostly it has aged poorly. Collision detection problems and sloppy mechanics plague this otherwise fun title, and multiplayer is really the best aspect of the game."
"Although it is just spring training as I write this, I have been hungry for baseball since the Red Sox won the World Series last year. In truth, MVP Baseball 2005 is not a huge change over last year’s, but that edition was so good that they did not need to do more than add new players, adjust rosters and tweak a few things to produce a fine game. In the end, seeing that there was no massive game improvement this year, I had to give a slightly lower score."
