    A solid, enjoyable romp Vampire Night may be, but it adheres strictly to the same trite concepts we've seen recycled so many times before.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    On a purely technical level, the collection is rock-solid, with graphics, sound, and gameplay that are generally accurate to their arcade counterparts.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The storyline is weak, but the emphasis is on challenging action with little room for plot development.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With the tag combos, tag meteor combos, and dozens of special move-laden combos, there's plenty of depth here for fighting game fans.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The competition is rough and cutthroat at times, but only by mastering the intricacies of 14th-17th century European commerce and politics will you become the richest, most powerful and evil man in Italy.
    • 74 Metascore

    If you like your games with less thought and more explosions, you'll have fun with Land Warrior. Those expecting another Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six will want to look elsewhere.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It is a huge game with a fairly engrossing story, but thanks in part to a few design flaws, it's hard to keep playing all the way to the end.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Often frustrating due the limitations associated with a linear narrative, its lack of incentives to replay missions, and its stubborn attitude in not providing clear visual feedback on how well the player is doing at any given stage.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, this version of Unreal Tournament does lose a lot in the translation. Although the basic game is very much the same, this title was created to be played online.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This game has more than enough depth with its mini-games and driving modes, but what is most fun is the wanton nature of its car crashes.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With a story line based very closely on its movie counterpart, Hey Arnold! The Movie is similar in play and repetitive fun to "Super Mario Bros.," yet boasts the improved graphics of the GBA.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For young dinosaur enthusiasts it would be an appropriate choice as it's based on a peaceful premise and contains no graphic content or gore.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's far from perfect, but Sega's franchise is finally back on track after a prolonged slump.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Less demanding players will be more tolerant of the game's repetitive nature, while others will yearn for something juicier to sink their teeth into.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Yet another delightful and highly original game from DMA Design. If you're looking for a long and challenging game, or a more adult-oriented title, Body Harvest fits the bill.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's likely that fans of the series will find The Sims: Vacation more of a luxury than a necessity.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's simple but oddly addictive.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Gameplay is complex enough to feel realistic, action-packed enough to be exciting, and easy enough to learn for players who are flight-challenged.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The single-player experience becomes dull after a few games thanks in part to ruthlessly difficult computer opponents.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The replay value is inexplicably weak, because getting all of the treasures, statue pieces, and rubies is not as complicated as it sounds.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Although the game is short-lived, some thought and creativity clearly went into the production, and there are just enough extras to keep Britney fans happy.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Certainly a unique first-person shooter and despite the feeling that this particular variety of horror and suspense seems a tad contrived at times, gameplay is actually fresh and warrants a good look by fans of both first-person shooters and survival horror.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Offers a new twist on old gameplay, and as such it might be a title worth the time for those players who like the idea of totally free movement. In all other areas, however, it is quite marginal.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-done extension of the show and will at the very least amuse and entertain Dexter enthusiasts.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Wipeout Fusion does not stray too far from the formula created by the original, the small pieces it does alter often detract from what made the previous titles so great.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While the game is not as deep as a "Blaster Master" or "Metroid," the exploration element, the ability to switch between three distinct characters, and the large worlds are well worth a look
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even with the ordinary combat and rather tedious puzzles, Blood Omen 2 still manages to be compelling enough to keep you playing to the end, which is a testament to the overall presentation and varied locales.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The colorful manual includes a Strategy Guide as well as comprehensive details on the combat, exploration, and role-playing aspects of Vanguard Bandits.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sadly, the most innovative aspect of the first title has been diminished to the point where Buffy isn’t much different than a routine 3D slugfest. An easy recommendation for loyal fans of the series, but the game's appeal would be lost on the casual player.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-conceived concept suffering from a somewhat lackluster execution.
