    The military model is the most simplistic with limited troop options and strategies. As war-gaming, it's barely more complex than "Civ II."

    Some ill-chosen puzzles, a fatigued conclusion -- no matter, really. You'll be smiling too much to give it much notice. This is nothing less than perfectly perfected perfection. If you like monkeys, anyway.

    An extremely entertaining shooter that is a must-have for any fan of the genre -- and that's not even taking into account the multi-player mode! Like GoldenEye before it, Turok 2 raises the bar for first-person shooters and is among the best titles available on the system.

    If you're in the mood for action and are either an excellent virtual pilot or a gamer patient enough to wait repeatedly for your life pod to dock or be rescued, free up some hard-drive space and test your space combat skills in Allegiance.

    It's got tons of depth and detail. Just make sure you download the latest patch for the game before playing or your results will definitely be less than they could be.

    The missions make the game an enthralling experience. This title certainly won't appeal to everyone, but for those who want a thinking shooter, give this one a try.

    Handles quite well and that's especially important as many of the puzzles require split-second timing and instant controller response.

    A game which reaches out of the box, grabs you by the throat, and won't let go. The game has consumed endless hours of my time, and the world of Norrath has visited my dreams more than Tyra Banks.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Certainly a unique first-person shooter and despite the feeling that this particular variety of horror and suspense seems a tad contrived at times, gameplay is actually fresh and warrants a good look by fans of both first-person shooters and survival horror.

    It's like being given the keys to Disney World and finding out the majority of attractions are not operational; you're left in a magical place with little to do other than to go on the same few rides that happen to be working.

    Comparing F-Zero X with other futuristic racers on the Nintendo 64 is rather difficult, since neither Extreme-G nor AeroGauge are in the same league. In a nutshell, Nintendo has another winner on its hands. One of the finest futuristic racers to grace a console.

    Not the system-launching revolution that it was perhaps cracked up to be. It is, however, a great fighting game, and a tremendous addition to any fighting fan's library.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A must-have for any veteran or new RPG fan. With the design incorporating the best of the genre and eliminating the rough edges, the character building, combat, questing, and a never-ending supply of monsters and items will keep you playing for a very long time.

    A highly enjoyable game. The learning curve is tough without becoming impossible, and races never seem out of reach to win even if you keep coming up just short.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most enjoyable tactical shooters released to date (circa 2002).
    • 85 Metascore

    While personality alone is not reason enough to buy any game, the humor and level of detail in Tropico certainly makes it a worthwhile investment.
    • 85 Metascore

    A solid shooter, certain to entertain any gamer looking for immersive gameplay, interesting characters and fluid action.
    • 85 Metascore

    Everything a fan of the original could hope for. Just don't expect to feel you're playing a whole new game.

    It's far from perfect, but Sega's franchise is finally back on track after a prolonged slump.

    While the options aren’t as extensive as those found in Madden, NFL 2K2 features the most complete presentation of any football game released to date.

    True to its word, a round of 18 holes can be played within 20 minutes, making the game extremely accessible for those who want some quick fun without getting bogged down in reading a series of meters or clicking through multiple menu screens before initiating a shot.

    Above all else, Freelancer is a fun, enjoyable experience that both veteran and novice players can quickly get into -- even those who have never mastered the art of dogfighting in space with a joystick.

    It's hard not to get excited when you see your wingmen engaging the enemy just so you can take out a specific target! Factor in the constant radio chatter and rousing orchestral soundtrack, and you have a game that effectively draws you into the Star Wars world.

    As with previous games in the series, the computer AI could have used a little tweaking; it just seems way too easy to score on your opponent.

    A solid, fun game that takes a baby step instead of a leap.

    Most home computer gamers will find this version of The Sims to be a novel diversion, but they will eventually return to their monitors and keyboards for the easy, open-ended play that is only available there.

    Anyone who enjoys frenzied shooting and zany physics will be very happy to own this one.

    By incorporating not only new things to do, but new ways to do them, this add-on raises the level of the whole game, in a manner far beyond that of earlier expansions.

    Whatever is going on inside his head, one can only hope it never goes away because that cranial cart wheeling has created one of the most unusual and spectacular games ever.

    Turok has some good points (namely the graphics and weapons) and some bad points (confusing level design and overuse of fog), but the overall game is still fun to play.
