    • 70 Critic Score
    The game offers great control and enough fun to make it a worthy competitor.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A few more single-player missions, a deeper story line, interactive backgrounds, and some additional tweaking on the technical front could have pushed the game over the top.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Playing the larger missions is more tedious than fun because of path finding and unit management problems.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It just performs exactly like a superhero-based game should, delivering solid gameplay, a smooth learning curve, and enough variety to keep the levels fresh.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Shiny Entertainment's particular humor comes through most of the time, while the strategically satisfying scope creates a sense of anticipation on where titles such as this can possibly go in the future.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Many have complained about Mission: Impossible's trial-and-error gameplay. Is it me, or do those same people seem to have forgotten that "GoldenEye 007" had the same type gameplay, especially on its higher levels of difficulty?
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid title and those with the appropriate means will find it challenging until the bloodlust has worn off and repetition sets in, which, for some, will take quite a while. For the rest of the population hemmed in by slow ISPs, the game will be little more than a source of frustration.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most home computer gamers will find this version of The Sims to be a novel diversion, but they will eventually return to their monitors and keyboards for the easy, open-ended play that is only available there.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The varied styles of fighting combined with a fresh crop of interesting characters are strong enough to make you want to sample each one.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In the hands of designers who will use Geo-Mod technology to mine its full effects to combine creative gameplay and a well-told story, it could be awesome.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid platformer that only has some minor flaws. The sound was probably the weakest area, but it definitely isn't crucial for this game. It just would've been the icing on the cake.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ultimately, the story makes the game, albeit with interspersed and occasionally annoying action sequences. But each combat has a purpose, which makes gameplay challenging and rewarding.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The automatic save feature makes playing a considerable non-hassle, while the multiple difficulty settings guarantee enjoyable gaming at all skill levels.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Factor in the number of performance-enhancing equipment and items to earn, and it comes close to the addictiveness of titles in the "Hot Shots Golf" series, which is clearly what the developers were shooting for all along.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Games rarely have any sense of culture at all … but those looking for a relatively enjoyable adventure with lots of wit should prepare for a trip to feudal Japan. You won't soon forget it.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A beautiful looking game, with animation as smooth as a Disney cartoon and a distinct style of artwork that could easily lend itself to a movie.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the PlayStation 2 version lacks many of the options available in its PC and even Dreamcast counterparts, the same adrenaline-filled action can be found.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best things about this compilation is that by scoring certain amounts of points in various games, players can unlock original Activision television commercials.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While gameplay differs in style, developer Climax Group manages to hold the line on the environment and overall fantasy feel of the original title developed by Mythos Games, Ltd.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Perfectly suited to the multiplayer environment of a college dorm room.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ultimately, players will want more from this title because the fighting system is so enjoyable -- far surpassing the combat found in games like "State of Emergency," "Eternal Darkness," and "The Mark of Kri."
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An extremely entertaining shooter that is a must-have for any fan of the genre -- and that's not even taking into account the multi-player mode! Like GoldenEye before it, Turok 2 raises the bar for first-person shooters and is among the best titles available on the system.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The camera issues will frustrate more than a few players. The variety of missions is a plus, but the casualty is a lack of cohesiveness.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With solid statistics tracking, a superb replay feature from various camera angles after each leg, and a diverse selection of race modes, cars, and tracks, GT Advance 2: Rally Racing offers heavy horsepower in the GBA racing garage.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The particle effects for the spells and treatment of the landscapes are well done, but graphics alone don't make the game.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gamers looking for big changes in the series, though, won't find the experience much different than earlier King's Field titles.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fans of the original Frogger will appreciate the basic concept of hopping around while avoiding obstacles (there are even logs to hop on) while modern gamers will get their expected dosage of objects to find and puzzles to solve.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it would have been nice if both characters offered entirely different storylines or if there were some bonus games thrown onto the cartridge, the bright colors, humorous enemies, and finger-twitching gameplay is well worth a purchase for anyone who grew up with Mega Man or is curious how this title character made his start in the industry.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lacks scenarios, ready-made cities from the developers, and some new features -- the first person "streetside" view was discussed during development, but is absent.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hacking enemies to pieces never seems to get old. That said, the sequel offers little challenge and doesn't take very long to complete.
