    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Often frustrating due the limitations associated with a linear narrative, its lack of incentives to replay missions, and its stubborn attitude in not providing clear visual feedback on how well the player is doing at any given stage.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you’re looking for depth, look elsewhere, but those who miss the style of games made popular on the Dreamcast should welcome this with closed fists.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, this version of Unreal Tournament does lose a lot in the translation. Although the basic game is very much the same, this title was created to be played online.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Those looking for revolutionary gameplay or a game that pushes the envelope of the latest generation of gaming systems will most certainly be disappointed.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Wipeout Fusion does not stray too far from the formula created by the original, the small pieces it does alter often detract from what made the previous titles so great.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rez
    The tight integration of visuals, sound and vibration feedback is an accomplishment, but the player has unfortunately been left out of the loop.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It captures the essence of "King's Field" and builds upon its foundation; which means those turned off by From Software's previous first-person RPGs will find little excitement here.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Veteran RTS gamers may be put off by the simplicity, but novice players should be able to jump right into the plastic wars quickly.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The company also has a reputation for releasing fairly polished but rather dull titles, and WDL is no exception in this area, either.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It seems almost threadbare in places due to the lack of attention in the physics, design, and multi-player aspects. Casual racing fans will probably get a kick out of it, but the hardcore gamers will be left wanting more.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unleashed's control is among the most frustrating of any racing game I've played in a long time. Maybe it's just the track layout, or maybe it's me, but I found my Porsche smacking straight into a wall or spinning out of control about every time I blinked.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    New tactical, turn based war battles which offers total control, upgraded graphics and new special effects on spells and animations.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    When compared to its shooter contemporaries, "Einhander" and "G. Darius", Thunder Force V comes up lacking. Einhander has vastly superior graphics and more innovative gameplay. G.Darius has better looking bosses and backgrounds, longer levels and a killer two-player simultaneous mode.

    The colorful manual includes a Strategy Guide as well as comprehensive details on the combat, exploration, and role-playing aspects of Vanguard Bandits.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun for the three minute speed-fishing rounds, setting the pace for those who might not otherwise get into the sport. While it can be an enjoyable game with fluent gameplay and nice graphics, don't expect it to resemble a fishing trip.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rather than featuring play-by-play and color commentary, the folks at Tecmo decided that Bon Jovi-inspired rock music would be the way to go. This touch of bad medicine to an otherwise decent soccer game, gives Super Shot Soccer a bad name.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Kids of nearly all age levels will become quickly enthralled with the adventure.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it lacks extreme excitement, Stuart Little 2 is a cute game. And children who do not require an extensive challenge for a game to be fun will enjoy the adventure -- at least for a Little while.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-done extension of the show and will at the very least amuse and entertain Dexter enthusiasts.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Riddled with decent attempts at notability, and whether successful or not, overall the game provides plenty of furry rodent fun with no messy cleanup.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It does an admirable job of re-creating the cartoon license; infusing it with enjoyable, if repetitive beat-'em-up action.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The overall design and presentation is the game’s strong point and helps to make up for the fact that there isn’t a whole lot of substance underneath.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The 1993 PC original might look blocky by 2001 standards, but the GBA version fares worse, with intensely pixilated visuals that detract from an otherwise admirable port of the classic first-person shooter.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    On a purely technical level, the collection is rock-solid, with graphics, sound, and gameplay that are generally accurate to their arcade counterparts.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Baseball Advance may not be a home run, but it makes solid contact in the areas of playability and fun despite the rough edges.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For young dinosaur enthusiasts it would be an appropriate choice as it's based on a peaceful premise and contains no graphic content or gore.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Although the game is short-lived, some thought and creativity clearly went into the production, and there are just enough extras to keep Britney fans happy.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Apart from a new trivia quiz, the collection delivers just about what you'd expect from such an anthology.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Madden NFL 2003 is far from perfect, it is a solid all-around effort that runs circles around the competition.
