    With better cut-scenes, more realistic driving physics, and a cinematic story, Mafia holds its own. While not as revolutionary as "GTA 3," it’s solid and oozes style.

    The only downfall of Curse is that it seems to end abruptly...That aside, The Curse of Monkey Island is a magnificent game that almost any adventure game fan should be able to enjoy. Its great fun and humorous attitude should appeal to most gamers.
    • 73 Metascore

    Definitely a title worth looking into for newcomers to the genre, since the learning curve is fairly small, while veteran RTS gamers will find quality gameplay with an emphasis on strategy.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Pays homage to 8- and 16-bit games with its emphasis on high-intensity action and level design that requires skill with the controller. Jet Force Gemini just may remind you of the frustrating, yet engrossing, fun you had back in the 8-bit era.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Due to its incredible content and easy interface, the game is one of the best of its kind on the market for both casual and professional players.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s not a title that has you playing for weeks on end, but it will be pulled off the shelf more often than you initially thought, if only to experience the fluid control and opportunity to trash talk opponents while initiating some of the most outlandish moves ever witnessed in a hoops game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Brings back the enjoyment of multiple tracks and fun, fast-paced racing, while at the same time adding new twists and more stages than similar racing games of the past.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The four-button (as opposed to six-button) control scheme takes some getting used to, but the game captures the spirit, the fun, the intensity, the depth, and the overall look and sound of the original remarkably well.

    So, for all of it's action and nerve wracking moments, if you only play games to beat them the first time through, I'd suggest renting Resident Evil 2.

    An exceptional game and one that stays with you long after you've switched off the power button.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Everything a fan of the original could hope for. Just don't expect to feel you're playing a whole new game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The title exudes a considerable amount of polish, possessing good texture work and splendid visual effects, with special mention needing to be made of the themed backgrounds in each of Story mode's worlds.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By incorporating not only new things to do, but new ways to do them, this add-on raises the level of the whole game, in a manner far beyond that of earlier expansions.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gameplay seldom strays from long-established RPG convention, but Golden Sun incorporates some of the best elements of classics such as the Final Fantasy, Phantasy Star, and even Legend of Zelda series, in its own distinct and unified style.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The many changes, both minor and major, will be a welcome addition to those who purchased the original, and for gamers who didn't, now's the time to get both.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Dynasty Mode is the main selling point and it is a lot of fun, especially the recruiting. After getting wrapped up in the Dynasty Mode you might even forget about Madden, at least for a short time.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Provides an important alternative to fantasy MMORPGs, and is designed well enough to warrant a look from anyone interested in the genre.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Where the original had lots of hack-'em-up action, this one replaces it with a puzzle (flipping and moving blocks into their appropriate locations). And they're hard – don't be surprised if you find yourself stuck for hours in one room.

    When in the first-person view, it is occasionally difficult to see what lies on the other side of Lara's back. It would have been helpful if she became transparent while in this mode, instead of making the player struggle with the angle. Fortunately, the instances where this affects gameplay are relatively few.

    If you can get past the driver's test (and the hideously hard last level), you'll find an addictive driving game that's jam-packed with crazy stunts, insane car chases and more thrills than a season's worth of Miami Vice.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Reprises the old addictive favorites on the Game Boy Advance without any control, playability or screen limitations, and offers an excellent means to introduce the games to new fans or a trip down memory lane for veterans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A title that will appeal to all but the most hardened of action fans, offering substantial reward for your time investment and a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment that few other games can provide.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    For first-person shooter fans, the ten hours you spend with Allied Assault will be most satisfactory. Nazis are fun and rewarding to kill, the missions offer diverse action, and the graphics are first rate.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The military model is the most simplistic with limited troop options and strategies. As war-gaming, it's barely more complex than "Civ II."
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With a simple-to-use swing interface and fast, fluid gameplay, Tiger Woods 2001 offers a level of playability that users will take pleasure in for a long time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What gives Cool Boarders 2001 its biggest style points, however, is something it shares with Tony Hawk: performance goals...This turns an average snowboarding game into a fun, engaging experience.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Successfully blends the crazy jumps and impossible physics of "Crazy Taxi" with the crime-oriented theme of "Driver." The graphics are clean, the music is catchy, and the game is fun to pick up and play.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The enemies are repetitive, the puzzles are simple, and players aren't given much freedom to explore, but what is here is fun to play -- thanks to an interesting story, excellent sound effects, and well-animated visuals.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As a homage to the original title, Altered Beast: Guardian of the Realms is merely passable, thanks to its carbon-copy design; fans expecting a revitalization of the franchise should look elsewhere.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A delightful excursion for the young female audience for which it is intended, but there's enough action and innovation to make it interesting for boys as well.
