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

    With a simple-to-use swing interface and fast, fluid gameplay, Tiger Woods 2001 offers a level of playability that users will take pleasure in for a long time.

    What gives Cool Boarders 2001 its biggest style points, however, is something it shares with Tony Hawk: performance goals...This turns an average snowboarding game into a fun, engaging experience.
    • 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.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The enemies are repetitive, the puzzles are simple, and players aren't given much freedom to explore, but what is here is fun to play -- thanks to an interesting story, excellent sound effects, and well-animated visuals.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As a homage to the original title, Altered Beast: Guardian of the Realms is merely passable, thanks to its carbon-copy design; fans expecting a revitalization of the franchise should look elsewhere.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A delightful excursion for the young female audience for which it is intended, but there's enough action and innovation to make it interesting for boys as well.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The series’ debut on Xbox is not the head-turning affair it should be. While fighting hundreds of enemies is still addictive as ever, players sadly shouldn’t expect any improvements to the presentation.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Will appeal more to bikers who've had hands-on experiences than casual gamers looking for a fun sport with less subjective scoring and easier controls.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It offers solid platform-based gameplay and a good deal of enjoyment for those patient enough to reap its rewards.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While its unlockable content may not always seem worth the effort, and its innovative multiplayer features are less than they could have been, it's just plain fun to control a six-story-tall gorilla as it ravages a modern metropolis.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It is an original GBA title, not a port of another game from another time. That means that the developers have created an attractive game that takes advantage of the GBA's larger numbers of colors and faster architecture.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid light gun shooter that will appeal to any fan of this genre. It's just too short and fails to add anything innovative in the gameplay aspect (i.e. you're still on rails and there's no alternate paths you can take).
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Eventually, the greatest downfall of MTV Music Generator 2 lies in its replay value. After a while, the primary songs lose their freshness and a user might feel trapped in a world of fixed samples.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The point of the cut-scenes is simply to connect the different, playable parts of the game and, since those parts of The Messenger are so good, small cracks in the method of connection can be forgiven.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While story elements take a backseat to the action, they aren't missed as the mindless shooting speaks louder than words.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The familiar graphics, interface and gameplay don't add anything to the series, but if you're looking for a way to raise monsters on the go, it certainly fits the bill.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A beautiful and entertaining title that falls just short of the initial hype.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unlike many of the swimsuits featured in the game, there’s some breathing room for further development, but Hypnotix has once again surprised audiences by proving Outlaw Golf was neither beginner’s luck nor a fluke. The Outlaw series is here to stay.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is one wacky world the developers have created, and it perfectly captures the original title’s sense of humor, irreverence, and addictive fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A short-lived romp through vibrant, sugary sweet worlds that will leave players -- much like its pink protagonist -- with an insatiable hunger for more.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The online component is addictive and is almost reason enough to purchase Midnight Club II, but solo players will be yearning for things to do in the cities outside of competing in more checkpoint races.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easy, but long, and it will please most fans of games like "Super Mario 64" and "Banjo-Kazookie." It looks fantastic, it's a lot of fun, and it handles superbly.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The added scenario is fun but short, taking roughly one hour to complete. Yet the main scenario's graphics, storyline, bosses, and mysterious atmosphere are big plusses, and there are several times when you’ll find the hairs tingling on the back of your neck.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The arcade-style atmosphere goes a long way in creating an immediately playable game, but in light of titles like "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell," there's a strong desire for more involved missions (NightFire's attempt at stealth is almost silly in comparison).
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most of the terrain is stunning.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The AI is a glaring problem in an otherwise great game.
