    With stunning graphics and realistic waves, Blue Storm will quench a player's thirst for quick racing excitement but may leave those looking for added depth high and dry.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most of the pieces are in place but they are rough around the edges -- even after seven patches. If, however, you are able to overcome the technical difficulties, a great game can be found.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game doesn't overwhelm players with options, and the modes of play are relatively straightforward. What RalliSport does best is provide gamers with a thrill of speed and a style of control that demands their full attention.

    Campaign missions tend to be repetitive and can become very tedious. The game's story lags and becomes stale quickly, resulting in a game that depends more on action and its war aspect then on plot. Even so, if you have a decent machine, Starship Troopers can be a blast to play.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's not nearly enough depth to this title, so replay value is completely dependant on how players enjoy the demolition derby action. If that's really all you want, then Totaled! should be viewed as a smashing success.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game could not have survived as a dungeon crawler alone, and thankfully the many side diversions offer hours of fun by themselves.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The biggest gripe is the missions aren't very long or difficult, even on the hardest setting. Enemies always appear in fixed locations, so players will be able to breeze through levels for the most part until the very end.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As fun and addictive as any of the high profile RTS games on the market.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An exciting ride that successfully expands on the aspects that made the original so popular.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The newly enhanced graphics and sound, coupled with the new age, may be reason for some to revisit the land of Myst, but the overall effect is one of "been there, done that."
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It is creative, beautiful, and most importantly, it is a great deal of fun from the very beginning to the very end.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What it lacks in new ideas is more than made up for in playful exuberance.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Controls are clunky, aiming is difficult, the world is noticeably less interactive, and the graphics are merely adequate.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While Ace Combat 2 is loads of fun, it can get a bit monotonous. Essentially, the mission objectives are all the same (blow up the enemy) and this could lead to some boredom. If you look into this game, be sure to play it in moderation -- play a few missions a day and then give it a break for a while.

    The most striking aspect of Sea Dogs is the 3D sailing and combat system. The feeling of being on board one of these 17th century vessels is almost perfectly captured, save for the lack of crewmembers being shown on deck.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    All three games in Sega Smash Pack are very playable, and retro collections of this type are almost always a welcome addition to modern consoles, especially when they are by and large faithfully reproduced.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s just a shame that one of your biggest opponents is the game interface itself.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's the kind of game that a big brother, or even Dad, might swipe from Suzy after bedtime.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great choice for those seeking a fun, arcade-style racer, but it also has enough depth and variety to keep players interested beyond the first few hours of play.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far from perfect but always engaging, getting mileage from the equivalent of a wink and a smile even despite the obvious faults.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game's depth allows many different strategies and styles of play, the multiplayer modes offer extended options, and the graphics make exploring each map a pleasure.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With a more reliable camera, some nifty voice effects and an advanced mode of play for more experienced gamers, this could have ranked as a must-own game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hardcore hockey fans should skate wide of this release, but most will enjoy this sleeper hit for what it is: a solid, fun game of hockey that strips out rules and penalties for a more action-packed experience.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even if the overall experience is a bit too short, the length to which it goes to inspire some real John Woo-style gunplay and adrenaline is impressive and definitely deserves praise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combat is fast-paced and aggressive, but balanced. The creature-combining mode is deep and involved, but accessible.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gameplay is addictive, but only to those who enjoy the specific genre.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Handles quite well and that's especially important as many of the puzzles require split-second timing and instant controller response.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There is enough of Tolkien's story and Jackson's presentation here to do the title justice, and enough classic action role-playing to make for an engaging, enjoyable game.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ultimately, Batman: Vengeance is hampered by its linear nature and lack of mental challenge, but the game is still heads and shoulders above all other Batman titles released in the last few years.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game is ideal for players who have never sat behind Crazy Taxi’s wheel. Veteran drivers, however, would do well to skip this fare.
