Burnout 3: Takedown

Game Description:  Racing gamers and adrenaline junkies are invited to get behind the wheel and experience unprecedented speed and action. Burnout 3: Takedown takes the action racing series even further than previous installments, now featuring a unique 'crash and burn' racing concept and a one-of-a-kind special effects engine that delivers spectacular visuals. The intensity heats up as players race, and often crash, their way through oncoming traffic in an attempt to claim the top spot.

F-Zero GX – Review

F-Zero GX is a game that only my father could love. No, the man has never played a videogame in his life (except for one extremely brief and humiliating game of Ms. Pac-man in the entrance to a K-mart many years ago), but F-Zero GX would probably appeal to him nonetheless.

F-Zero GX

Game Description: F-Zero GX gives you the chance to hurtle through space as one of the best pilots in the galaxy!

Driv3r – Review

I've been known to sip a cold one or two (or three) when I do my gaming. I know it's probably not a very professional thing for me to do—imagine Ebert hitting the bar before his afternoon screening of The Manchurian Candidate. But videogames are time-consuming endeavors.

Driv3r – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Language, Violence

Driv3r

Game Description: The fun and thrills of the original Driver, combined with all-new gameplay mechanics, bringing you the next great racing-action game! Play as Tanner, the undercover cop from the first two hit Driver games. This time he's out to bust an immense car-theft ring—but his secret is about to be uncovered. If Tanner doesn't work fast, the mission is over—and so is Tanner's life.

Mafia

Game Description: Start out as a hitman, enforcer or getaway Driver -- you'll have to complete missions to earn the respect of other mobsters, plus Don Salieri himself. Deal with rival Morello family while controlling your rackets -- see if you can run all the gambling, extortion, smuggling and prostitution in the city. You'll need patience, skill and accuracy with a Tommy Gun as you fight your way through 20 dangerous missions. High-speed car chases, bootlegging, assassinations, bank robberies and more -- you'll have to do it all and avoid getting caught by John Law. Just remember, your actions have consequences -- don't hit any innocent people unless you want heat from the cops, and don't cross Don Salieri unless you want to wear cement shoes!

Mafia Review

Mafia Screenshot

While the story is a great one presented in an engaging fashion, it's just not enough to save Mafia as a whole. The bland graphics, clunky controls, and atrocious load times (nearing 40 seconds in some instances) are nearly insurmountable shortcomings. Mafia and publisher Gathering may make you an offer, but believe me, it's one you can (and probably should) refuse.
