Minimum Review

FEATURED VOXPOP shandog137 Background: I own and have completed every entry in the Ninja Storm series, so there is inherent bias but luckily this isn’t a review.

GR's Best of 2006 Awards

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
The sports genre moves like a hunting crocodile, which is to say, not much at all. It just sits there, barely breaking the surface, looking like a bump on a log until WHAM! It catches your head in its jaws, death rolls, and by the time you get your bearings its 5:30 am on a Wednesday. We love it when that happens, that's why we're giving these games awards.

 

SPORTS GAME OF THE YEAR!

Fight Night Round 3

Publisher: EA
Developer: EA Chicago
Platform: PS3 | Xbox 360

 

Still one of the best games for the 360 and undisputed heavyweight champ for the PS3, Fight Night Round 3 is harder to drop than Jake LaMotta. With staggering visuals, sweet controls and a bevy of legendary fighters, this game wins on the scorecards and by knockout at the same time.

 

RUNNER-UP!

NBA 2K7

Publisher: 2K Sports
Developer: Visual Concepts
Platform: PS3 | Xbox 360

Proof that “Next-gen” isn't just about buttery sheens, clay mannequins, and high definition layers of sweat, NBA 2K7 looks real and plays like it, too. A Pixar movie’s worth of smooth animations drive the realism further down court, pleasing both our critical eyes and jaded gamer thumbs. Finally, there’s enough depth here to keep the jams sky-high until the next great basketball game from 2K Sports.

 

Winning Eleven 9

Publisher: Konami
Developer: Konami
Platform: PS2 | Xbox

Striking an impeccable balance between realism and light, responsive gameplay, Winning Eleven 9 lives up to every bit of hype it's not getting. Increased A.I. pressure, a clean interface and sweet controls will make you thank the designers for putting together such a well thought out gameplan, and the long-awaited addition of online play (Hear that, FIFA?) takes the slickest soccer franchise global. This world cup overfloweth. Asi me gusta!
