    The graphics, sound, presentation, and depth are unrivaled thus far on PlayStation 2, putting the title on equal footing with "Madden NFL 2003" as the top sports games available on the system.

    The voice acting is almost infallible, and would be quite at home in any Saturday morning cartoon. That said, the writing is inconsistent.

    The single-player mission mode is where the game shines. Graphics are excellent and close-ups on characters reveal such subtleties as eyes moving independently and blemishes on the skin.

    The beginning of Myth II grabs you right by the throat and won't let go to the very end... While the story may be wonderful in Myth II, it's the gameplay that really shines, both in single and multi player, a claim that many games can't make.

    Dynasty Mode is the main selling point and it is a lot of fun, especially the recruiting. After getting wrapped up in the Dynasty Mode you might even forget about Madden, at least for a short time.

    A great game with a fantastic storyline, complex missions, and lots of mindless destruction, carnage and explosions. If you're looking for a mind-blowing single player experience, Shogo will not disappoint.

    The AI is a glaring problem in an otherwise great game.

    The core of the game is remarkable.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The actual story line is perhaps the game's weakest point, as none of the levels seem tied together in any meaningful way other than the Quantum Leap-like aspect of assuming the role of a character who lives in the time period in order to retrieve the time crystal.

    Roberto Benigni may have gotten a lot of press for finding humor in the Holocaust, but Oddworld does it too, only the humor is dripping black. Yes, I just said Holocaust.

    Certain classic enemies have also been upgraded, such as the imps, which now stare players down with glaring eyes before pouncing on them.

    The combination of action, treasure seeking, and character development is highly reminiscent of that other hit PC role-playing game, "Diablo II," with 3D graphics that go far beyond Blizzard's 2D beauty.

    Most of the terrain is stunning.

    The title exudes a considerable amount of polish, possessing good texture work and splendid visual effects, with special mention needing to be made of the themed backgrounds in each of Story mode's worlds.

    It's like being able to play "Symphony of the Night" in the back seat of your parent's car, but with all new levels and some nifty new features.

    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.

    This is a true PC gamer's game, complete with unfettered intention, esoteric style, and remarkable depth.

    While the options aren’t as extensive as those found in "Madden NFL 2002," and the graphics aren’t as optimized for the console as "NFL Fever’s," NFL 2K2 features the most complete presentation of any football game released to date.
