    While the adventure mode has a short wick, a robust selection of multiplayer options extends the life of this title and certainly makes it worth investigating, particularly for younger fans of the Bomberman franchise.

    Those who haven't played a fighting game in a long time might also be impressed, but the weak visuals will be a major turnoff for the average gamer.

    The fielding still needs some work, animation could use a bit more variety, and there should be more extensive modes and features, such as an ability to tweak computer AI so players can fine-tune problem areas. This game is a definite hit, but it’s a few yards short of a home run.

    Niggling problems such as overly cheap AI still persist, but for the most part, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance manages to breathe new life into the gameplay while still retaining the Mortal Kombat feel.

    A suitable challenger to "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3" for best extreme sports game on the PlayStation 2.

    The swing meter is the only real obstacle to your enjoyment, as it completely changes the way the game feels and plays from more traditional titles.

    The interface in GK3 is simple point-and-click with keyboard support.

    The amout of things to do in this game is staggering. From the Private Actions to the Skills, this game will keep you occupied for many, many days.

    But what really sets Ecks vs. Sever apart is its emphasis on story, and the way its missions consist of more than just straightforward running and shooting.

    Worth the wait, despite the fact that from a technical standpoint the sequel isn't a major step above the Dreamcast original.

    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.

    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.

    • 50 Critic Score
    It’s hard not to be disappointed by the resolution and graphics, which is more a fault of the screen rather than the game.

    Though most of the few changes to the original Super NES games were good ones, there are a few annoyances in the PlayStation versions. The most noticeable of these is the speed of play.

    While there isn't much for fans of the popular PC version of Starcraft to get excited about, those new to the series will enjoy engaging, addictive gameplay coupled with an incredibly protracted single player mode.

    It's nice to see a game come along that is proud of its action roots but attempts to bring more to the experience, creating a title that is fast and furious, but also clever and engaging for more than a few hours of play.

    For an older, previously exposed group of kids, Disney’s Lilo & Stitch will extract resounding approvals and applause.

    Unfortunately, other than the graphics in the user's manual, BAM! Entertainment's title holds little fire, with frustrating game graphics and difficult gameplay.

    One of the most fun flight simulators to date.

    Of greater concern are the problems with the hit detection -- far too frequently, an enemy soldier is only stunned by a bullet through the head. Predicting how many body shots an enemy can absorb before death is nearly impossible.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Filled with such a carefree and upbeat attitude, from the movie-quoting riders to the ridiculous courses featuring cannon-blasting pirate ships, rampaging dinosaurs, and rollicking waves, that it’s easy to forgive any shortcomings.

    While its unlockable content may not always seem worth the effort, and its innovative multiplayer features are less than they could have been, it's just plain fun to control a six-story-tall gorilla as it ravages a modern metropolis.

    It works hand in hand with previous titles in the series, drawing designers back with solid improvements and polished graphics.

    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.

    Baseball Advance may not be a home run, but it makes solid contact in the areas of playability and fun despite the rough edges.
    • 80 Metascore

    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.

    This game will keep you hooked all the way up to its finale. Even after completion, you may opt to go through it a second or even third time.

    A must have for history buffs and a good choice for other gamers who have the time, patience and will required to master the intriguing gameplay.

    The game could not have survived as a dungeon crawler alone, and thankfully the many side diversions offer hours of fun by themselves.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A great looking game with a tried-and-true wrestling engine behind it. Unfortunately the modes of play and options are lacking, and casual fans only interested in the recording artists will quickly tire of the structured format.
