    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The fast-paced combat is only marred by rather tedious and simplistic level objectives, but after seeing how bad a licensed game like this can get, the developers should be congratulated for delivering a game that looks, sounds, and plays better than most typical releases on the platform.

    Fatal Frame certainly has its share of scary moments without relying on blood or graphic violence, but the battle system is so hokey and repetitive that the game's potential is left underexposed.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The 1993 PC original might look blocky by 2001 standards, but the GBA version fares worse, with intensely pixilated visuals that detract from an otherwise admirable port of the classic first-person shooter.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With graphics prettier than Arwen and gameplay shorter than Bilbo Baggins, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ends up a mixed bag.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid value well worth a spin. Just don't expect much more than the original titles.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're expecting more than just a straightforward simulation, however, Q-Ball isn't going to do the trick.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unleashed's control is among the most frustrating of any racing game I've played in a long time. Maybe it's just the track layout, or maybe it's me, but I found my Porsche smacking straight into a wall or spinning out of control about every time I blinked.

    With graphics prettier than Arwen and gameplay shorter than Bilbo Baggins, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ends up a mixed bag.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Those looking for revolutionary gameplay or a game that pushes the envelope of the latest generation of gaming systems will most certainly be disappointed.

    Rez
    The tight integration of visuals, sound and vibration feedback is an accomplishment, but the player has unfortunately been left out of the loop.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Baseball Advance may not be a home run, but it makes solid contact in the areas of playability and fun despite the rough edges.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Oddly though, despite the game's limited premise, Britney's Dance Beat holds a curious mixture of addictive gameplay and fascination.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Suffers from the same problem found in other games in the genre -- a lack of detailed record keeping or performance statistics to encourage replay value.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Has beautiful graphics, intuitive control, excellent sound, and a fun co-op campaign offering three difficulty levels. It is also a rather dull experience when playing alone and doesn't push the genre in any way, shape, or form -- in many cases, it takes the genre back.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Extreme-G is what more titles should strive to be: something that is just plain fun to play. What it is about this game that makes it so great -- maybe it's the fact that the control is very precise, maybe it's the sheer thrill you get from traveling at 400 miles per hour on a sleek, futuristic cycle, or maybe, just maybe, it's the thumping bass beat that makes the racing even more enjoyable.

    • 60 Critic Score
    With improved animation, a more robust career, and a better choice of modes, it could have easily been a knockout instead of a contender. Rocky the game certainly has the heart of a champion, just not the tools needed to go the distance.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Think of it as a "Half-Life" and "Resident Evil" sandwich with some new innovations as condiments. But be forewarned: not everyone will enjoy the taste.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even with these improvements, State of Emergency is still a relatively shallow game that focuses on in-the-moment action, offering no real depth or continuity.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It isn't anything revolutionary, just very solid, balanced between simulation and arcade, delivering just enough technique to satisfy demanding players.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The characters are varied and some of the storyline is interesting but, unfortunately, it's too easy to become stuck or bored.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The game offers simple controls, fast action, and inventive courses with shortcuts so long they almost qualify as completely new tracks.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite the problems, players will likely find themselves coming back to the game, because it is just as entertaining as it is frustrating.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The presentation is really where Mobile Suit Gundam: Journey to Jaburo shines.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Outlandish costumes, ridiculous accents, and goofy expressions are wrapped around an intuitive control scheme that offers players the flexibility to perform a variety of moves, without making them complicated to perform.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sartre once noted, "Hell is other people." The Sims Online is strictly for those who would disagree.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game that won't bowl anyone over with deep gameplay and a compelling, cohesive storyline, but it's arcade sensability is strong enough to make it a decent enough diversion for fans of air combat.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rather than featuring play-by-play and color commentary, the folks at Tecmo decided that Bon Jovi-inspired rock music would be the way to go. This touch of bad medicine to an otherwise decent soccer game, gives Super Shot Soccer a bad name.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Accessible and exciting. It's also disappointingly easy.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It is designed specifically for those who enjoy using their minds, and it will occasionally even frustrate the best of those players.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not the worst puzzle game on the market by any means, but by the same token it offers little to entice fans away from the select few gems that have dominated for years.
