    While fans of the last installment may at first be disappointed in the apparent lack of notable new features and improvements, there are plenty of additions to be enjoyed after mastering the new options and levels.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Playing the game is a lot of laughs, and is the perfect pick me up after a long day playing intensely dramatic games.
    • 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.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely not the kind of game everyone will appreciate and, in fact, may be unplayable after five minutes for some gamers.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    In the end, I just couldn't get into Jedi Knight. Maybe it was because I'm not a big Star Wars fanatic that I found it quite boring and uninspired, but there was nothing here that grasped my interest.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It is creative, beautiful, and most importantly, it is a great deal of fun from the very beginning to the very end.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Shiny Entertainment's particular humor comes through most of the time, while the strategically satisfying scope creates a sense of anticipation on where titles such as this can possibly go in the future.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Accessible and exciting. It's also disappointingly easy.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Suffers a bit from being too close to its predecessor in terms of gameplay, but it does manage to scare up enough dread to be a worthy game for fans of the genre.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This game is worryingly addictive; it's not just a business simulation, nor just a power game, but an educational competition where only the forward thinker survives and thrives.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Controls are clunky, aiming is difficult, the world is noticeably less interactive, and the graphics are merely adequate.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most of the pieces are in place but they are rough around the edges -- even after seven patches. If, however, you are able to overcome the technical difficulties, a great game can be found.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most of the terrain is stunning.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The old adage "beauty is only skin deep" basically sums up Dead or Alive 3 rather nicely.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It isn't a terrible gaming experience, especially for those with an itchy trigger finger, but there is no improvement from previous games and some regression concerning weapon and monster design.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're a strictly console gamer, the PS2 version offers the Half-Life experience in a satisfactory package with the added bonus of the Decay missions.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    May disappoint some die-hard fans of survival horror because of its relatively short length and the way it occasionally trades action for atmosphere.
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It seems almost threadbare in places due to the lack of attention in the physics, design, and multi-player aspects. Casual racing fans will probably get a kick out of it, but the hardcore gamers will be left wanting more.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This is one bandwagon I'm not going to jump on simply because the name Links is involved.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game's depth allows many different strategies and styles of play, the multiplayer modes offer extended options, and the graphics make exploring each map a pleasure.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The military model is the most simplistic with limited troop options and strategies. As war-gaming, it's barely more complex than "Civ II."
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Handles quite well and that's especially important as many of the puzzles require split-second timing and instant controller response.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most enjoyable tactical shooters released to date (circa 2002).
