---Burnout Revenge---
Console: PS2
Reviewer: John Jacques
Review:

I recently got Burnout: Revenge and I am pleased to say it is everything I expected it to be, and more---what's funner than zipping through traffic at 200 MPH in a tense race, then another racer rams you, and you smoke him into a wall?

Burnout is all about fighting dirty. In fact, it rewards you for it. Even the most simple races are intense, and the enemy AI is smart---but multiplayer action is the most truly amazing part of the game.

This isn't just about racing. There's so much to crashing---even Crash Modes in which you must crash and cause as much damage as possible.

I can't begin to describe Burnout: Revenge...I've been a hardcore fan of the series, and this game delivered the intense rating I was hoping for. Now I just wish I had a PS2 Online Adapter to go online and score some takedowns on n00bs =P

Score: 10/10

---Day of Defeat: Source---
Console: PC
Reviewer: John Jacques
Review:
This game is a realistic WW2 Multiplayer game in which players choose a side (Allied vs. Nazis) and try to capture 5 flags located around the map (two are near you, one in the middle and two near the enemy). There can be a heck of a lot of people on each team, and battles can last from hours to a few minutes depending on the teams.

The combat is intense and the recoil is realistic. Impressive graphics are borrowed from the Half Life Engine and you can really see them at work. Of course, you won't be paying attention to this when three people break out from a window and start shooting at you, using voice chat to yell their warcry (die, b*tch!)

In short, DOD:S is a great multiplayer game available on Steam. If you want a fun realistic WW2 Multiplayer game (and you know you do) this is the game for you.
Score: 9.5/10

---Fifa 2006---
Console: PS2
Reviewer: John Jacques
Review:
Fifa 2006 is an excellent soccer game. Not only are the graphics utilizing the full potential of the PS2, but all games are fun to play. The AI presents challenges, and custom characters make getting your character to score even more fun---especially with all the clips it shows of your people either celebrating or moaning.

Gameplay is essential in this game, and it delivers. The announcers don't annoy, and there's virtually nothing that can ruin the game for you---unless you're a sore loser =P

Tournaments can be tense. The unlockables are neat (from retro character bios, to coloured soccer balls to real life clips). You can even play Fifa '94. In short, this is a near-perfect PS2 Soccer Game. If you love sports or soccer, get this immediately.
Score: 10/10
