    With unbelievable sweep kicks, rapid-fire hits, sky-high jumps, killer slaps and combos, and a whole host of weapons and special moves, Battle Arena Toshinden sets a new stage in gaming for the PlayStation revolution.

    The organization of the immense database allows both novices and experts to equally enjoy the challenge.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On a purely visceral level, the game is a blast.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly solid rendition of pinball that will please adults and children alike, proving games don't have to skimp on features just to appeal to younger audiences.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A memorable but brief stay in feudal Japan with a quest that could be finished within six or seven hours.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While patience is a much needed virtue for enjoying the game, most people, gamers or not, will be intrigued by the mystery presented by this riddle.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite being a stunning title in many ways, with some unique gameplay to boot, Luigi's Mansion ultimately fails to deliver a cohesive gameplay experience over the long-term.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game is ideal only for those who are interested in the PC phenomenon but can't (or won't) play it on a PC. The rest of us will be duly impressed, but may ultimately decide to get a life elsewhere.

    Despite good graphics and excellent sound, Rune falls short of its potential due to various flaws, glitches, and a lack of variation over the long haul. Rune is a prime example of not being able to judge a game by it's pretty exterior.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It is very short and should take only about ten hours to finish. As interesting as the puzzles are, they're a snap to solve and don't take an overly long time to solve.

    Hopefully, future versions in the series will focus less on the trappings of the first-person genre and instead concentrate on what makes a Jedi so unique: lightsaber battles and the use of Force in more meaningful ways than pushing buttons.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Driving fans will get bored and frustrated very easily.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The overall vibe generated by Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge is positive, one of a software company really liking a classic game and wanting to do all they can to make it better. What more can you ask for in a remake?
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The old adage "beauty is only skin deep" basically sums up Dead or Alive 3 rather nicely.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's nice to see a game come along that is proud of its action roots but attempts to bring more to the experience, creating a title that is fast and furious, but also clever and engaging for more than a few hours of play.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent game with the mammoth Star Wars license couldn't have come at a better time for the system.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the adventure mode has a short wick, a robust selection of multiplayer options extends the life of this title and certainly makes it worth investigating, particularly for younger fans of the Bomberman franchise.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It works hand in hand with previous titles in the series, drawing designers back with solid improvements and polished graphics.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're a strictly console gamer, the PS2 version offers the Half-Life experience in a satisfactory package with the added bonus of the Decay missions.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    AI is also frustratingly poor.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good arcade-style racing game, with aspects that won't likely appeal too much to purists who want racing realism. But, if you're looking for instant fun without a lot of car tuning and setups, it's worth a look.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Just enough to satisfy the average player without including statistical and gameplay options that would have stretched the release date and production costs out to an unacceptable level.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While Downforce does not run very deep, it does run fast, furious, and most importantly, fun.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The fact that it sticks so closely to the formula of its predecessors is both its greatest strength and biggest weakness.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    N-Tranced will not hypnotize players with its ambitious design or extensive new features, but the quality of presentation and fast-paced arcade-style action make it easy to recommend.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    And that's the real star of this game: its personality. Even if it's an easy, competent game, it won't bother you while you're playing it because everything is so darned fun.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Considering the relatively inexpensive price of "The X-Files: Unrestricted Access" (at the time of review the program was only half the price of most new games), this is an X-Files souvenir well worth the money to the casual watchers and a must-have for the die-hard fan.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game still needs work in the visual department, but few titles come close to achieving the same balance of fun and realism as offered by HH 2003.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    May disappoint some die-hard fans of survival horror because of its relatively short length and the way it occasionally trades action for atmosphere.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The voice acting in Septerra Core is amazing, and the mouths actually move with the voices! Unfortunately, the sound effects used in the game *REALLY* get on one's nerves after a short while.
