Worthplaying has posted some screenshots of Need for Speed Most Wanted.
"Need for Speed Most Wanted delivers a unique, fast-paced and gripping ride in the racing genre as players build up their Rap Sheet and street cred to move their way up the Black List to become the most wanted racer on the streets."

Talk Xbox has posted their review of NBA Live 06, giving it a 9.2 out of 10.
"EAs NBA Live 06 delivers with its incredible new gameplay feature, Freestyle Superstars. The game focuses on showing a difference between player types aside from merely what position they play. EA has also provided a great boost in visuals, and the addition of an Xbox Live enabled All-Star Weekend is huge. This game is sure to provide hours of fun for many, and I recommend that all NBA fans pick this one up."

Pro-G has posted their review of Burnout Legends, giving it a 9 out of 10.
"Overall Burnout Legends is a great PSP title. It is another port - of sorts - but its use of older games makes its content seem fresher than other ports that have hit the handheld early in its life. As a game to pick up and play every now and again or to play with friends, Burnout Legends can't be beaten on the PSP."

Game Freaks 365 has posted their review of Madden NFL 06, giving it an 8 out of 10.
"With a solid franchise mode and impressive technical qualities, Madden NFL 2006 PSP is perfect for handheld pigskin fans or anyone looking for a good new sports game for their PlayStation Portable. In fact, if you liked older football games where momentum wasn't a factor, this is even better. It's definitely worth a try."

Fragland has posted the following reviews:
  • Virtua Tennis World Tour (PSP - 90.5%)
    "As far as I'm concerned, Virtua Tennis World Tour is the PSP's first must-buy title. Its gameplay is very deep and addictive, it delivers outstanding graphics and it can last you weeks. If you happen to have a friend who also owns the game, you're definitely in for a treat! Too bad 'our' Kim and Justine aren't in it..."
  • Everybody's Golf (PS2 - 23.1%)
    "Everybodys Golf is not the golf-sim we al know that but isnt it a party-game either? It sure is because if you want your guests to leave, just put this on and they are guaranteed to leave within fifteen minutes except of course for the ones that fell asleep with the controller in their hand!"

XGP Gaming has posted their review of NBA Live 06, giving it an 8.4 out of 10.
"What could have been improved upon, though, is the AI in the game. Yes, its much improved from Live 05, but does any NBA AI ever get it right? No. You can eventually dominate the AI with ease. Often times theyre left standing as you run from end to end with a dunk finisher. Alternatively, theyll sit while being easily ripped (have the ball stolen from them for the nerds). Im not sure if we should expect any NBA AI to ever get it quite right, but they are much improved. They do call defensive and offensive plays, depending upon the situation or the score for that matter. I was running a game with the Dallas Mavericks, naturally against the Spurs, up by 3 with 30 seconds and they played hack-a-shack on Dampier. I was a little amazed, but it happened. I canned the free throws and yes I know I shouldve subbed Dampier out. However, the fact that they even hacked him was more impressive to me. Im not saying this is usual AI activity but the point is they react a lot better than before."

Worthplaying has posted some screenshots of Burnout Legends.
"Burnout Legends sets the bar for on-the-go automotive anarchy, combining the series' trademark speed, destruction and depth. Gamers can look forward to eight gameplay modes, including crash, road rage and pursuit."

ToTheGame has posted their review of NHL 06, giving it a overall score of 8 out of 10.
"Definitely an improvement over last years installment, NHL 2006 puts excitement back into hockey. Though its been able to take a few steps forward, its not without some fallbacks such as the lackluster dynasty mode, the unrealistic slap shots, and even the lack of auto-saving features for your roster or dynasty mode."

TeamXbox has the scoop.
"Instead of just playing through some arcade-friendly pigskin matches, Blitz: The League will feature a complete Campaign mode, which follows the action of a user-created team both on and off the field. Much more than a typical Franchise Mode, Campaign in Blitz: The League not only features all of the drama of a reality TV show, but also highlights the down-and-dirty front-office dealings that seem to be a part of every pro program."

Next Level Gaming has posted their review of Burnout Revenge, giving it a 91 out of 100 for the Playstation 2 console and a 92 out of 100 for the Xbox console.
"Where does Burnout go from here? Even moving to the next generation, what more can they do? Obviously it's going to be graphics, but they packed a lot into this game, and I don't know what more they can do. If you are even remotely a racing fan, then this is more than a must have."

G4 has posted their review of Madden NFL 06, giving it 4 stars.
"Wed love to say Madden NFL 06 is the clear choice for your football dollars, but its the only choice this year, so it wins by default. The big addition to the series, QB vision, is a love it or hate it proposition, and we're not convinced it even adds to the realism. Most of the other additions are the result of EA playing catch-up with the NFL 2K series. With that said, Madden NFL 06 is a solid-playing game of pigskin that will pacify hours and hours of your life."

Game Zone has posted their review of NHL 06, giving it an 8.4.
"Many people will come away from NHL 06 feeling kind of confused, at least I did. I mean there is no denying EA when it comes to slick presentation, fluid gameplay, and topnotch animations, but its breakneck pace, and broken goalies will definitely take away some of its charm. Anyone who can look past these shortcomings, or who actually prefers the arcade style of gameplay, will be in hockey heaven; everyone else might want to look elsewhere for a more realistic experience."

I'll be posting a thread to answer questions about gameplay tonight. I've played about 20 games so far and I'm seeing something new every game. The Q&A will be for gameplay questions only. Just figured I'd give you guys a heads up.

TeamXbox has posted some screenshots of Madden NFL 06.
"Reflecting the focus on the passing game in the NFL, Madden NFL 06 has changed passing for the first time in ten years with the all-new QB Vision Control and QB Precision Placement and introduces the all new NFL Superstar mode, where you can live the life of an NFL Superstar."
