As would be expected of any comic-to-game adaptation, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 does not entirely replicate the storyline, but it does a surprisingly good job of recreating the key allegorical events: the attack on New York City, the atom bomb-like explosion in Stamford, and the escalating violence between the two factions of superheroes. While the game changes much of the end of the storyline, opting to have the two sides unite against a sentient virus and removing Captain America's poignant surrender and subsequent death-by-assassination, it still conveys important truths about what it means to surrender freedom for the sake of fear, and why even the seemingly powerful are so eager to give up their rights.

Transformers: Autobots has a few good ideas held back by terrible production values and an execution that's so sketchily erratic, only a dedicated Transfan would be willing to put up with it for more than a few levels.

If Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is "a beacon of light" as Keith calls it, I don't want to follow. This game should change its subtitle from "Jedi Outcast" to "Faces of Death" because it isn't so much an interactive adventure set in the Star Wars universe as it is the most elaborate and punishing three-dimensional mousetrap ever conceived.

I can recall back to my childhood watching the Star Wars Trilogy
. I have rather fond memories of the movies and even dreams that have never been able to manifest themselves in any other media other than my imagination. It's rather disappointing when I think about it, especially considering the multitude of opportunities LucasArts has had to capture the experiences of the movies. Don't get me wrong, they have produced gems like Star Wars: X-Wing
and The Super Star Wars
games, but on the same note, they're also credited with flops such as Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer
and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter
. In fact, it seems all of their recent attempts have been lackluster at best.
Game Description: In the tradition of the multi-award-winning Star Wars: Jedi Knight, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast features rebel agent Kyle Katarn in exhilarating first-person action. Players assume the role of Kyle as they employ a unique mix of weapons, Force powers, and the lightsaber in both single- and multiplayer modes. Jedi Outcast features expanded and enhanced use of the lightsaber, with new attack and defense moves. Tap into the powers of the Force, including jump, push, and Jedi mind tricks. Employ combat or stealth, depending on the situation. When a fight is necessary, be at the ready with an arsenal of weapons: stun baton, Bryar blast pistol, and blaster rifle to name but a few. Explore breathtaking Star Wars locales such as Cloud City, the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, Nar Shaddaa, the smugglers' moon--plus some never-before-seen locations. Multiplayer options include capture the flag, free for all, team FFA, duel, weapons only, and Jedi master.
Game Description: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, which has been a bona fide hit on every console it has graced, has staked its claim on the Game Boy Advance. The idea is still to perform hundreds of complicated tricks for points, and players can still ride as T. Hawk or any of a dozen pros in the game. Players can create their own skaters from scratch, too, by selecting appearance, gear, clothes, and more. Heck, you can even create your own ideal skate park by building ramps, rails, pipes, and other challenging obstacles.
