    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.

    A diversely beautiful and deadly environment filled with amazing characters and a myriad of possibilities. For any fan of the original, this is a must have – it's just too good to pass up.

    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    Rather than simply adding three new campaigns and 18 additional scenarios, new civilization powers for all 23 cultures, from Ancient Greece's flaming arrows to Rebel Forces' cloaking, bring new excitement to many epochs with some interesting changes or enhancements to gameplay.

    The voice acting is almost infallible, and would be quite at home in any Saturday morning cartoon. That said, the writing is inconsistent.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A treasure trove of interesting and creative ideas, all melded to form a title that falls short of a classic, but will fill in the niche void for the console's RPG fans.

    Simply put, Final Fight One is the arcade game shrunk down to portable size. It offers nothing more or less than what you'd expect from such a transformation.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Yes, the graphics are less than desired and the camera and control can be bothersome. But the quest as a whole -- action, platforming, story and challenge -- is so satisfying that the problems can be overlooked. Be sure to give it a shot.

    • 80 Critic Score
    While it might not be quite as feature intensive on a technical level as the "The Chessmaster" series, it's an enjoyable, well-made chess simulation that provides the essential elements of the game and even manages to break some new ground.

    A great example of how to make an entertaining comic adventure.

    • 80 Critic Score
    There is a sense of teamwork involved in the multiplayer competition that makes the action far more rewarding than if it were merely a straightforward deathmatch against everyone else.

    Although it doesn't bring anything new to the table, Sonic Advance is an enjoyable 2D platformer that will meet players' expectations.

    After conquering the human opponents, the toughest challenge is to move into tournament mode and take on Jeanette Lee. Better make sure you're at the top of your game, though, because she doesn't enjoy losing.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Leveraging great depth, wonderfully simple play mechanics, and competent graphic touches, this game should last as long as an official baseball season.
    • 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!

    Whether re-fueling in midair, trashing a multi-million dollar aircraft by miscalculating your landing corridor, or blowing enemy fighter jocks from the sky in a blaze of glory, the level of sophistication in F-14 Tomcat is as welcome as it is surprising.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the enemy selection could have been more diverse, and the camera angles more intuitive, the quality of the environments, control, and music is high enough to live with some of the shortcomings.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    When you factor in the Fantasy Mode, Madden Challenges, and crisp gameplay with the same control scheme as found in past Madden games, you have a winner.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While each game features gameplay a step above the other, a few flaws carried themselves from title to title, never being fully resolved.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It offers great tracks, real-world bikers, encouraging music, and a huge satisfaction factor.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hip, smart and fun. Whether you play alone or with friends, it's a game any quiz-show lover should add to his or her collection.

    The AI is a glaring problem in an otherwise great game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A dream come true for those who didn't think it was possible for a console title to approach the level of depth found in a PC role-playing game.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With an innovative interface that allows the game to switch between three distinct and unique characters and modes of gameplay, MDK 2 provided enough of a hook to keep me coming back repeatedly.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An ambitious adventure game of epic proportions, especially from the perspective of a roach.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    After a few minutes swaggering around with these mechanical monstrosities, players can’t help but be floored by the intense pyrotechnics and raw power found within this game.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The sequel has 30 new weapons, new enemy robots and 30 additional levels, but the overall effect is diminished by repetitive gameplay.
