    The changes aren’t substantially different from Madden NFL 2003, and the excitement level has diminished since the release of "NCAA Football 2004," a game that offers better commentary, more diverse modes, and simply more "energy" than this chapter in the long-running Madden series.

    While an excellent game, it just lacks that particular oomph the original had. Perhaps, being a sequel, it couldn't have the same impact as being something completely new.

    Some gamers will be quickly bored when they find out all there is to this game is snapping pictures, while others, especially younger audiences, will want to gather as many photos as possible to show their friends. Players should be warned that Pokémon Snap can be easily finished within a weekend.

    The complete package of visuals, audio and gameplay is worth checking out if you're a fan of RTS. My only gripes are the slightly dumb AI and somewhat shoddy controls but those aren't enough to dampen the experience.

    With the two Ps, patience and practice, World Driver Championship becomes an engrossing gameplay experience unlike any other on the system. Realistic driving simulations are a world unto their own. You'll start to see white lines in your sleep.

    The game's replay value is bolstered by its multiplayer modes, where you can select from the entire cast of the Voyager crew and battle online.

    An exciting game, it does have its shortcomings -- most notably the game being very short.
    • 87 Metascore

    Certain classic enemies have also been upgraded, such as the imps, which now stare players down with glaring eyes before pouncing on them.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Chances are the majority of players will try some of the single-player game, become frustrated or bored, and then move on to the outstanding multiplayer modes.

    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.

    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.

    What really drives it home, however, is the unsurpassed realism and detail.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a short ride, but one that's filled with wondrous images, an engrossing story and solid, thoroughly entertaining gameplay.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Utterly immersive in its use of character attachment and amnesiac story-telling, it is a game that will honestly give you the sweats...It's all about replacing your shorts every half-hour or so.
    • 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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The core of the game is remarkable.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is a title filled with such joyful exuberance, from the peppy soundtrack to Yoshi's adorable mutterings, that Nintendo fans cannot help but grin from ear to ear while playing.

    I only wish something new and exciting could have been added. Gran Turismo 2 is an impressive game, just not an impressive sequel.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is the freedom players have to go about their missions however they desire, the single most important element preventing many good games from shooting up to the level of great ones.

    Far and away the best portable football game at the time of its release.
    • 97 Metascore

    The animation on each Marine you encounter is remarkable, possessing almost endless moving parts and distinct facial features, while the lighting, textures, and massive landscapes prove Halo and the Xbox to be without equal on the console market.

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

    As the passionate announcer exclaims during the opening sequence, "the soul still burns," though neither as fiercely nor as brightly as longtime fans may have hoped for.
    • 71 Metascore

    Each game is short on substance but long on fun.
    • 89 Metascore

    A great game. While it's low on the pathos, the cheery nature of the quest is rivaled only by Working Design's "Lunar" series.
    • 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!
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As much as in the original WarCraft and all the Blizzard games that followed, the player is placed in the story with a perfect perspective on each different race’s dreads and hopes.

    Nintendo 64 owners have reason to be scared. At long last, Resident Evil 2 sinks its teeth into the system. With a high graphic violence quotient and chilling zombie horror reminiscent of Night of the Living Dead, Resident Evil 2 is not for the faint of heart. Rather, it is for the survival-horror enthusiast with a taste for action and blood.
    • 69 Metascore

    It manages to feel fresh due to the non-linear nature of its gameplay and the way it places its levels within a narrative context.
    • 89 Metascore

    The game is preferable to the PS2 version as it has noticeably smoother frame rates and quicker load times, as well as the ability to Quick Save at any point.
