    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent, adrenaline pumping game that is nearly identical to its arcade and Dreamcast counterparts.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The ability to play with three other skilled hunters adds to the twisted fun, and is what ultimately raises The Reckoning just above an average rating.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Successfully blends the crazy jumps and impossible physics of "Crazy Taxi" with the crime-oriented theme of "Driver." The graphics are clean, the music is catchy, and the game is fun to pick up and play.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Easily playable but just as easily forgettable.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, all of these nicely designed elements are somewhat wasted due to the irritation caused by actually flying the planes.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No matter which game you prefer, this is a great collection. Except for the forgivable absence of the lesser known "Super Pac-Man," this game has everything a fan could ask for.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A title that will appeal to all but the most hardened of action fans, offering substantial reward for your time investment and a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment that few other games can provide.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the more original puzzle titles available, and it has a good amount of depth and mystery in its gameplay and scoring elements to keep players interested for a long time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An all-around solid effort that does exactly what it aims to do: offer players a preview of what Sony’s online service is capable of using one of the company’s best-selling and most recognizable PS2 games.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Although the game applies properties of physics to problem solving, it is so delightfully entertaining that gamers of all ages won't realize the depth of learning involved.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even though very customizable, Close Combat: Invasion Normandy's gameplay can get very repetitive after repeated play.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Reprises the old addictive favorites on the Game Boy Advance without any control, playability or screen limitations, and offers an excellent means to introduce the games to new fans or a trip down memory lane for veterans.
    • 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."
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slowdown and jerky animations seem more prevalent as each new expansion pack is installed; an understandable symptom of the now massive amount of objects and interactions, but less excusable considering that the system requirements for Unleashed are nearly double those of the original game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's absolutely gorgeous and while it doesn't have lots of levels, it's fast and furious with an unforgiving amount challenge!
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The single most endearing attribute of this title is its simplicity and ease of use, regardless of which aspect of the hobby enthralls you.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A genuinely fun game that's even better if two players get together via Game Link cable.
    • 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.
    • 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
    • 80 Critic Score
    Simple, intuitive, and very easy to pick up on! If you liked the multiplayer interaction of Mario Party, are eager to see classic Nintendo characters beat each other senseless, or are starved for a fighting game, then this is the one for you!
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Offers some of the variety and entertainment that was promised from the launch but ultimately failed to materialize.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Don't expect to win based on skill or shrewd decision making. In fact, this is one of the most random playing board games I've seen! Mario Party is a great idea, but the simplistic nature of gameplay coupled with extremely short mini-games will leave most players feeling unsatisfied.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With beautiful graphics, plenty of options and an easy-to-master swing meter, the game is both appealing and accessible to the casual fan.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it suffers from a few somewhat glaring flaws, it contains a deep narrative structure and a surprisingly interesting adventure motif that should excite fans of the genre and those who like complex storytelling.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    More a refined version of Dynasty Warriors 2 than a completely new game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Pure Contra goodness. Most of the hallmarks that make the series great are here, including finger-frazzling gameplay, the indispensable two-player cooperative mode, constant shooting action, and giant bosses with well-hidden weak points.
