Gamer Feed has posted their review of NBA Live 06, giving it 3/5 stars.
"Just like last year, EA's promise that things would be different tricked me into purchasing an NBA Live game and this version, much like the previous one, is ultimately disappointing. The developers failed to create any sort of balance, and even though the defensive intensity has been bumped up several notches this is still a run and gun basketball game. Beware of journalists' bloated review scores and stay far away from NBA Live 06."

Game Zone has posted their preview of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.
"Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland is the next progressive step in the series, taking the game in a different direction for the T.H.U.G. series of games, but adding to the franchise in a very solid way. For those who can’t get enough of the video game industry’s top skateboarding franchise, the playground is about to get a lot richer and definitely more enjoyable."

G4 has posted their review of MotoGP 3, giving it 4/5 stars.
"This game is the Ninja Gaiden of racers. It's as deadly as it is beautiful; but if you can tame her, she'll purr like a kitten. The online options are vast, the two single-player modes will have you playing for months, and you get an actual sense of accomplishment when (or if) you win a race. Get out of that four-wheeled heap and wrap your legs around what MotoGP 3 has to offer."

Worthplaying has posted the following:
  • SSX On Tour Preview (PS2)
    "In the preview build, there were only two playable modes, downhill racing (which is pretty self-explanatory) and trick. In the trick mode, your player competes against fellow snowboarders or skiers and tries to outscore them with all of their possible moves. The competition is a straight downhill battle, and you have to avoid traffic and unwarranted billboards that just seem to crop up in all the wrong places."
  • PureSim Baseball 2005 Gold Edition Available for Online Purchase (PC)
    "Matrix Games is delighted to announce that its exciting new sports simulation, PureSim Baseball 2005 Gold Edition, is now available for sale through the Matrix Games Online Store. The digital download version is available immediately for $29.99 with a $39.99 boxed game to follow later this week."

Next Level Gaming has posted their review of Top Spin, giving it a score of 83 out of 100.
"Top Spin might be a stop gap for 2K Sports while it finishes up Top Spin 2 for the Xbox 360. Or it could simply be a way to expand the brand name to a new audience. And for what it is, a port, it does the job for Playstation 2 Tennis fans."

GameBiz has posted their review of MotoGP Ultimate Racing Technology 3, giving it a score of 9 out of 10.
"Moto GP 3 is a top notch motorcycle racing game which is realistic and the best on the market at this time. If you are a Moto GP fan then this is a definitely recommended, especially if you have access to Xbox Live. Some people will be put off by the precise controls needed in the Moto GP mode but those people are catered for in the arcade style "extreme" mode."

UGO has posted their preview of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.
"The Tony Hawk series has included increasing amounts of customization over the years - you can make your own graffiti tags, customize your look and clothing, and pick from many types of decks. While no one thing seems specifically expanded for THAW, the game invites you more openly to try them out, by making missions out of certain customizations. The way you gain stats is also a little more open, with certain challenges that give you stats if you can complete them. These challenges change periodically as you go throughout the game, so while you will eventually want to max out your stats, you now have some choices as to how it's done."

Modojo has posted their review of NBA '06, giving it a 3 out of 5.
"However, improvement is improvement and NBA 06 is much improved and certainly worth a look. The fact that the game looks better is nice, and the gameplay's actually worth checking out once you get the hang of it. Next year, we should have a real monster on our hands. As is, it's still maturing, but its fangs are getting sharper."

TVG has posted an interview with the Producer of GT Legends, Rod Chong.
TVG: "How did you managed to source all the information for GT Legends cars and what has been the hardest aspect so far in putting it together?"
Rod: "It was reasonably straight forward researching the cars. We went to several FIA GTC-TC races and photographed all the cars and worked closely with the drivers, owners and mechanics of these amazing machines. Everyone involved was quite helpful. The FIA organization also gave us access to the FIA Homologation booklets for some of the cars."
