Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Review (GameCube)

Dragon Ball Z fans will be more than happy to see Dragon Ball Z: Budokai arrive on the Gamecube, as it successfully powers its way into mediocrity, thus becoming the greatest Dragon Ball Z game in history. It’s not for everybody, but if you love the characters you will love the game. Spark up your Power beam, prepare to get tossed through a mountain, and click right here.

Grabbed by the Ghoulies Review (XBox))

The wizards at Rare are easily one of the most beloved development studios around. Long the secret behind some of Nintendo’s best games, Rare has a new home and they’re starting to get their Xbox groove on. Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a bit too simple to be a hit for those looking for the Perfect Dark experience, but it will probably fare better with the kiddies and will no doubt find its way into a stocking or two. Click here for the full review.

Rocket Power: Zero Gravity Zone Review (GBA)

When it comes to the GBA, Gamesfirst reviewer Jason Frank is a living legend. Some people say he was born with a GBA in his hand. Many say he won his GBA atop Mt. Olympus in an oiled-up, blindfolded submission wrestling match with Zeus. Others say he got it at Target. All I know is that he takes on Rocket Power: Zero Gravity Zone, the latest in GBA skateboarding, right here right now. Click here to watch the master work.

The Haunted Mansion Review (XBox)

Based on the Disney ride of the same name, The Haunted Mansion delivers some surprisingly fun gameplay that’s easy enough for the younger crew to enjoy while still remaining fun for adults. Does it belong under your Christmas tree? Ask Eric right here.

Batman: The Rise of Sin Tzu Review (XBox)

December 7, 2003

Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu is something of a milestone for fans of the super hero; it marks the first time a Batman character makes his debut in a videogame, as Ubi Soft gives fans some beat-‘em up action Batman style. But while the Dark Knight fares well against the villain Sin Tzu, he gets a serious beatdown from the arch-nemesis of all videogame comic heroes: The super-villain known as Monotonous Gameplay. Click here for the whole review.

Max Payne 2 Review (Xbox, PS2)

Console gamers had to exercise a little patience when PC gamers were the first to get their hands on Max Payne 2, but the wait is over. Max is back, and this time he has company to liven things up a bit. Max is wasting bad guys and dodging bullets better than ever via the bullet time ballet, but the high point here is the superbly crafted narrative. Gamesfirst! editor Shawn Rider delves the depths of Max Payne 2, and the story begins right here.

Monster Truck Madness Review (GBA)

THQ is looking to bring a little racing action to your GBA, and Monster Truck Madness is a surprisingly fun title. Don’t look for any breathtaking innovation, but if you’re looking to fire up some Monster Trucks kart-racer style, read here first.

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi Review (PC)

Chances are good that you’re a little tired of the sci-fi warrior waxes alien/demon/mutant FPS routine (but you’ve saved a space for Halo 2 of course). Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi looks to add a little fear into your gaming environment, via creepy visuals, haunting soundtrack, and a goodly dose of the undead. What’s more, you can sport a musket loader, cup of holy water, a trusty wooden stake, and more. If your holiday season needs more undead, click right here.

Power Rangers:  Ninja Storm Review (GBA)

Can’t wait for the next Power Rangers’ GBA title? Not likely, and to tell you the truth we have trouble telling them apart anyway. On the upside, if you’re five you probably won’t hate it. Our GBA expert delivers a lightning fast, ninja-like spinning backfist to the Power Rangers right here.

Return of the King Review (PC, XBox)

EA’s highly successful The Two Towers drew high praise from gamers for its cinematic drama and hack and slash action. It wasn’t the most innovative treatment of the Tolkien classic, but it sure was fun to be a part of. The latest installment, Return of the King, looks to improve on that success, offering more characters, more cinematic feel, and best of all, multiplayer co-op. But can more hack and slash satisfy a Lord of the Rings enthusiast? With a single click, your quest for knowledge begins right here.

Scooby Doo: Mystery Mayhem Review (GBA)

Sometimes a well known name is all it takes to sell a game, so not enough work goes in to the game itself. Enter Scooby Doo: Mystery Mayhem, as Scooby and the gang try to score as much loot from gamers’ pockets as they possibly can--and they would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t have been for that pesky reviewer Jason Frank. Read here to unmask the mystery of Scooby Doo: Mystery Mayhem.

The Temple of Elemental Evil Review (PC)
