    Better than "GoldenEye 007" in every aspect, making it the best first-person shooter at the time of its release. With much deeper Solo Missions and a completely customizable Combat Simulator, Perfect Dark definitely was worth the wait.

    It shouldn't be confined to live under the shadow of the ["Metal Gear Solid"] because it is much more action-oriented in design. The bottom line is that Syphon Filter is an excellent slab of gaming goodness.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game play is smooth, using action points for movement and combat and the inventory system is easily managed. Fallout has one of the best character development systems of any computerized role-playing game and the graphics and story make for an excellent gaming experience.

    Mixing elements of empire building, resource management, life simulation, survival and brawling with complex strategies and tactics in a gorgeous fantasy setting seems too good to be true.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An impressive fusion of stunning graphics and solid gameplay.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Nintendo fans trying to fill the void left after the release of "Perfect Dark" will find TimeSplitters 2 to be the perfect fit.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a true PC gamer's game, complete with unfettered intention, esoteric style, and remarkable depth.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Far from being a fatal flaw, however, this lack of definition is sporadically encountered and can be viewed as a minor annoyance and is, in fact, somewhat offset by impressive designs of larger non-human units, such as ships or flying machines.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not only does it offer more of everything, but it also makes enough changes so that even the old material from the original game feels new and exciting.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Graphics and animations are charismatic, and it is truly enjoyable to build, defend, and even siege the greatest citadel in the land.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The use of bright colors and attractive character designs accent the uncluttered playfield to create an overall pleasing visual experience.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    EA's "NHL 2003" is a solid game, but 2K3 is a gem. The intelligent play of the computer players in 2K3 -- unparalleled by any past or present -- makes NHL 2K3 the best hockey video game to date.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Though complicated and with the occasional fault, it could be remembered as the greatest Final Fantasy game through the 32-bit era.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The actual story line is perhaps the game's weakest point, as none of the levels seem tied together in any meaningful way other than the Quantum Leap-like aspect of assuming the role of a character who lives in the time period in order to retrieve the time crystal.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Multiplayer fans will benefit the most, as the expansion offers new maps and a whole new environment for legalized mayhem.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While the backgrounds are 2D, they are rich and diverse and those spot explosions, though pixilated, feature high quality light sourcing.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Once you get past the incredible visuals, you realize that this is just a prettier version of "Gran Turismo 2," which is in no way a bad thing.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A must-have title that, if nothing else, represents the missing "link" of Nintendo classics destined to appear on the color handheld.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The meticulous planning may discourage the action fan, and the exorbitant storyline may initially dissuade the die-hard role-player, but both will find familiar elements and enjoyable new challenges in this well-built game.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The perfect sequel. It gives us more of what we want while not changing the heart of the gameplay too much.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Torment's sub-quest structure is probably the biggest attraction for me. These are the best kinds of quests: multiple solutions, the best usually being the peaceful, conversational type and rewarding with experience points.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A complete and accurate helicopter simulation that should please hardcore combat flight enthusiasts. Not just one, but two attack helicopters are featured and the designers don't skimp on the flight characteristics of either.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Small issues aside, it's hard to go wrong with the generally realistic, technically superb and enjoyable gameplay found in Triple Play Baseball.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game is reminiscent of a well-written novel that is funny, suspenseful, and, yes, epic in scope.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A unique option lets you customize weapons, armor and character abilities.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An extraordinary adventure game. With its great story, beautiful artwork and fabulous voice acting, you'll be missing out by not giving this game a whirl.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Finding the perfect balance isn’t easy, but those who do will discover a subtle style of gameplay that demands more than other programs of the genre. While not for the uninitiated, the title is well worth the time and energy invested in learning.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A brilliant and unique game that features lots of cool ninja weapons, such as throwing stars and the grappling hook, realistic Japanese scenery, stealth and patience tactics, etc. Players who like their games to be linear and planned out beforehand won't like this game; neither will the players with no patience.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One area that would enhance the game would be expansion city packs. The game is incredibly fun and is limited only by the fact that only two cities exist. This suffices for the single-player modes but limits the potential of multiplayer and cruise modes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's a pity the single-player story mode isn't a little more engaging, because it's the only thing keeping Neverwinter from getting the maximum rating.
