We have just posted our NBA 2K6 review. Find out what Mark Fossen has to say about it.
"Everyone knows all about clouds and silver linings, right? Well, the agreement that gave EA Sports an exclusive deal with the NFL was one heck of a dark cloud, and it didn't appear to be lined with much of anything, except perhaps more clouds. When that deal put the kibosh on the stellar ESPN NFL from 2K Sports, a portion of that development team went to work on the NBA title. With some of the finest minds in sports gaming adding their genius to a title that was already a sim-gaming favorite, would there be a silver lining after all?"

We have just posted our Burnout Revenge review. Find out what Clay Shaver has to say about it.
"I probably shouldn’t tell you this story (and kids, please don’t try this at home), but when I was a lad I used to play a game that involved Matchbox Cars, modeling glue, black construction paper, and a pack of matches that I wasn’t suppose to have. Now, for legal reasons, I won’t get into the fiery details. But, let’s just say, I could make a better crash stunt then a sweep’s episode of “The Fall Guy."

We have just posted our Burnout Legends review. Find out what Shawn Drotar has to say about it.
"The popular arcade racer has a rabid following, and with good reason - It's one of the most exciting and spectacular titles ever played on console. Armed with an amazing sense of speed and violently visceral crash physics, Burnout's style of play harkens back to classic video game design, where fun and excitement reigned supreme. Now, Electronic Arts delves deep into Burnout's history - creating what's essentially a "greatest hits" collection for its first release on Sony's new PSP. While the PSP is not short of racing titles, Burnout Legends deserves to take a spin in every gaming fan's PSP drive."

Games Xtreme has posted their review of Virtua Tennis: World Tour, giving it an 8.8 out of 10.
"This is the 2nd time the game has ever appeared, it was released on the Dreamcast at the end of the consoles life so a lot of people would have missed it. It's widely considered to be the best tennis game but, if you dislike Tennis I'm not sure if this would sway you. It's by far one of the best launch games and seeing as it's in the PSP top 3 charts in Game most people would agree. It will last you forever especially in Multi Player."

The official rFactor website has some information about their upcoming patch.

Reduced video memory usage, and automatic texture reduction if video memory is filled to capacity. An in-game usage meter is also provided.
Many graphics optimizations including shadows and headlights. Go ahead, try Max Shadow Detail.
Basic administrator features for the dedicated server. Additional features in future updates.
New information displayed in Replay Fridge (driver names, lap times, speed, etc.).
New expanded and accurate results files which will be compatible with RaceCast XML parsers.
Much reduced tendency for AIs to rear end the player, and many other AI improvements. They have been given a firm warning about their recent behavior.
Blue flag and full-course yellow improvements and changes.
In-game field of view (FOV) option.
Improved online play including additional collision checks to prevent remote vehicles from appearing to go through walls., most notable at Joesville and the rFactor 400.
New track layout: Sardian Long, a very challenging city course that requires patience to allow the rhythm of the circuit to unfold. Requires stamina.
Tons of bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements."

PALGN has posted their review of NBA Street Showdown, giving it a overall score of 7.0 out of 10.
"It's likely that we'll see a future incarnation of this series in the very near future, and when that happens we hope the rosters are updated and some of the issues we've had have been fixed up. If you're a fan of NBA but are sick of the serious updates, then it is hard to go past this game; even though it seems more like a reworked port than an entirely new title."

Next Level Gaming has posted their review of Gretzky NHL 06, giving it a score of 74 out of 100.
"Overall, Gretzky NHL 06 offers some pretty cool features, but the gameplay is a little too arcadey for my tastes. The game just doesn’t feel like a true hockey game to me. The pace of the game is way too fast. While the game doesn’t appeal whole lot to me, there are plenty of people out there who will absolutely love this game."

GameDaily has posted their review of FIFA 06, giving it a rating of 4 stars.
"FIFA '06 may not be as strong a sports title as, oh, NBA 2K6 or even Madden, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in quality. It's just how you approach the excitement of the sport in general, so if you're a hockey fan, this will be your idea of utopia for the year."
