World Soccer Winning Eleven 8 International

Game Description: World Soccer Winning Eleven 8 delivers a wealth of new moves, tricks and more in-depth gameplay. This includes new free kick and penalty kick techniques, an innovative indirect free kick move and a new dribbling system that offers more control as gamers go one-on-one against opposing players. Winning Eleven 8 will also include an on- screen referee - another first in the series. Further adding to the realism of the game, Winning Eleven 8 will feature 136 club teams, 57 national teams (including the Italian, Spanish and Dutch leagues under the official license), and control of up to 4,500 of the world's greatest soccer players. Players are brought to life through photo realistic graphics and authentically modeled features, as well as individual styles of play, movement and ball control.

World Soccer Winning Eleven 8 International – Review

Winning Eleven 8 is simply yet another step in the right direction, both for the advancement of quality sports games and for the slowly progressive principles to which Konami's series has held close—even throughout years of being outsold by the flashier, gimmicky FIFA games.

Hot Shots Golf Fore – Review

The first thing gamers who spent time with Hot Shots Golf 3 will notice is that this installment looks more like an expansion to that game than a brand new title. Yes, there are tweaks and additions (most notably the long-awaited inclusion of online play with Sony's Network Adaptor) but underneath it, this is HSG3 with a new coat of paint. The courses from the last game are back, as are many of the players and caddies along with several new courses, new characters (including unlockables like Ratchet and Jak), and the return of mini-golf. And while the game may seem more like an expansion than a new title, it's really not an issue since so much of the material is included to refine the HSG3 experience. Because of this, players who spent hundreds of hours with the previous game will still find a lot to like in this update—the additions are almost entirely there to make the game more complex and more realistic (or at least as realistic as a game featuring a dog caddy can be…).

Top Spin – Review

I confess—I don't know the first thing about tennis. Sure, I watch it on TV every now and then when something big is happening, but I never paid much attention to it or really understood all of its rules and nuances. After playing Top Spin, though, I gained a newfound appreciation for the sport.

Ribbit King – Second Opinion

spent a little time with story mode, although the story isn't one that matters. It's an excuse to play frolf. That said, I appreciated the aesthetic of the graphics utilized. I was immediately reminded of those old Rankin Bass holiday specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, except with the stop-motion puppets replaced by computer graphics.
