"Burnout Revenge lets gamers rip through rush hour traffic and lay waste to scores of rubbernecking roadhogs in an over-the-top scene of vehicular mayhem."
"Get behind the wheel and experience the sensation of racing actual cars. As in the real world, Enthusia emphasizes pure driving skills and ensures that winning is a result of ability rather than how much money has been spent tuning a car. Maintaining a subtle balance between the power of the car and the driver’s skill, Enthusia promises to deliver the ultimate driving experience for racing fans of all abilities."
"While the real NHL remains in a holding pattern, the virtual NHL continues to drop the puck on consoles everywhere. Sony's new PSP has shown a strong commitment to sports gaming in its launch lineup, and Gretzky NHL is its hockey entry. The PS2 version got an excellent score from Operation Sports; will its little brother be as successful?"
"989 Sports took the year off from their PS2 basketball series, ShootOut, but instead of that, they've come through with an NBA game for the launch of the PSP. Does the game deliver a solid NBA experience for Sony's new handheld, or does 989 clank one off the rim?"
"MotoGP4" continues the series’s tradition of realism and speed with an advanced physics engine, authentic rider animations and multiple weather conditions for a truly intense racing experience. Players can take part in the thrills and drama of professional racing across all three engine classes from the 2004 season, including MotoGP, 125cc and 250cc throughout 16 accurately recreated tracks from around the world. Boasting a larger selection of playable racing legends than ever before, "MotoGP4" lets players choose from greats such as Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey, Mick Doohan, Wayne Gardner and the late Daijiro Kato. "MotoGP4’s" commitment to racing realism extends beyond the tarmac -- allowing players to conduct parts tests between races to upgrade the performance of their bikes."
"Last night I was surfing around looking for the new Madden/NCAA previews that were due to come out, and judging by the high traffic at most of the preview sites, I was not alone. I really didn’t know what to expect, so I did go into it with an open mind. Judging from some heated debates I have gotten into over the past month on various forum boards out there, I can safely say that I was probably more optimistic than a good number of people who seem to be quite angry at Electronic Arts. So, brimming with anticipation, I was hopeful for a visible sign that EA was going to address Madden/NCAA’s graphics this year."
In addition to the Sweepstakes, Activision and the Jeep brand hosted a contest where consumers were challenged to design the “sickest skate park” for the chance to win the ultimate “Rail Rated” prize package of skateboarding gear and apparel.
Neversoft, the developers of the Tony Hawk’s Underground series, is currently judging contest entries and the winner will be announced online at www.thug2online.com/railrated by April 22, 2005.

"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."
