    It's the kind of game that a big brother, or even Dad, might swipe from Suzy after bedtime.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A short-lived romp through vibrant, sugary sweet worlds that will leave players -- much like its pink protagonist -- with an insatiable hunger for more.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    N-Tranced will not hypnotize players with its ambitious design or extensive new features, but the quality of presentation and fast-paced arcade-style action make it easy to recommend.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly solid rendition of pinball that will please adults and children alike, proving games don't have to skimp on features just to appeal to younger audiences.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The mix of DDR-style gameplay and the Olsen twins makes for a winning combination, providing enjoyable, addictive gameplay injected with the personality of Mary-Kate and Ashley.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gameplay is addictive, but only to those who enjoy the specific genre.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a distinct lack of impressive new features, Donkey Kong Country is nonetheless an enjoyable platform game offering around 10-15 hours of play (expect to devote even more time to get a 101% completion rate) and generally pleasing visuals and sound even if they aren't up to the level of the Super NES version.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    For youngsters or avid puzzle fans, Hot Potato! is a refreshing title with crisp graphics and addictive gameplay.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In the end it’s the accessible gameplay and entertaining Dynasty Mode that will keep players interested, and for a first effort on the Xbox, the development team did an admirable job.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The old adage "beauty is only skin deep" basically sums up Dead or Alive 3 rather nicely.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The added scenario is fun but short, taking roughly one hour to complete. Yet the main scenario's graphics, storyline, bosses, and mysterious atmosphere are big plusses, and there are several times when you’ll find the hairs tingling on the back of your neck.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is one wacky world the developers have created, and it perfectly captures the original title’s sense of humor, irreverence, and addictive fun.
    • 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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A memorable but brief stay in feudal Japan with a quest that could be finished within six or seven hours.
    • 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."
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite the awkward fielding system, limited camera angles, and inability to modify individual aspects of gameplay, the powerful tandem of great visuals and extensive modes of play will surely satisfy fans of the series wanting more substance over flash.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the crisp graphics and bonus levels put the Xbox Spider-Man game slightly ahead of the PS2 and GameCube versions, indoor sequences are still problematic with an uncooperative camera that rarely stays behind the web-slinger as he flits across the room.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the few tough-as-nails games with the power to keep drawing you back to it, long after you've screamed enough words at the television screen to make a sailor blush.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Worth the wait, despite the fact that from a technical standpoint the sequel isn't a major step above the Dreamcast original.
