    Think of it as a "Half-Life" and "Resident Evil" sandwich with some new innovations as condiments. But be forewarned: not everyone will enjoy the taste.

    On a purely technical level, the collection is rock-solid, with graphics, sound, and gameplay that are generally accurate to their arcade counterparts.

    Despite a distinct lack of impressive new features, Donkey Kong Country is nonetheless an enjoyable platform game offering around 10-15 hours of play (expect to devote even more time to get a 101% completion rate) and generally pleasing visuals and sound even if they aren't up to the level of the Super NES version.

    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.

    Once you finally get underway, however, it becomes evident that the graphics suffer from the anti-aliasing problems that plagued the Japanese PS2 launch.

    The lack of modes is also surprising given the EA SPORTS name and the company's previous pugilistic pursuits, with one of the most basic career modes found in a boxing game and limited create player options.

    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).

    An enjoyable game, but it's AI shortcomings keep it from being great.

    Unleashed's control is among the most frustrating of any racing game I've played in a long time. Maybe it's just the track layout, or maybe it's me, but I found my Porsche smacking straight into a wall or spinning out of control about every time I blinked.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Little more than an average action-adventure title, with nothing to differentiate itself from the throngs of similar titles in the PlayStation 2 library.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As fun and addictive as any of the high profile RTS games on the market.
    • 78 Metascore

    In the hands of designers who will use Geo-Mod technology to mine its full effects to combine creative gameplay and a well-told story, it could be awesome.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The particle effects for the spells and treatment of the landscapes are well done, but graphics alone don't make the game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With tons of different mech-building options and a healthy two-player mode, fans of the genre will find themselves having a wonderful time for quite awhile.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A beautiful and entertaining title that falls just short of the initial hype.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There is enough of Tolkien's story and Jackson's presentation here to do the title justice, and enough classic action role-playing to make for an engaging, enjoyable game.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite being a stunning title in many ways, with some unique gameplay to boot, Luigi's Mansion ultimately fails to deliver a cohesive gameplay experience over the long-term.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The bottom line is this looks, plays, and feels like the classic Crash Bandicoot games that have dominated PlayStation sales charts since 1996.

    The main problem comes from Amped's lack of a racing mode, which takes away from the game's intensity.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If they continue to slap a year on the packaging along with a few half-hearted features, as they did with this title, their audience is going to ignore them.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game offers great control and enough fun to make it a worthy competitor.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far from perfect but always engaging, getting mileage from the equivalent of a wink and a smile even despite the obvious faults.

    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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A by-the-numbers port of the PS2 game, which was in itself an extremely questionable upgrade over previous titles in the series.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Though Kirby's path is fairly well set and there isn't too much call for free-roaming exploration, there are lots of power-ups and hidden areas to keep the game interesting.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like its predecessor, won't go down in history as any kind of a classic, but it does offer enough thrills and spills to keep most players interested through to the end.

    Unfortunately, this version of Unreal Tournament does lose a lot in the translation. Although the basic game is very much the same, this title was created to be played online.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The fact that it sticks so closely to the formula of its predecessors is both its greatest strength and biggest weakness.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With solid statistics tracking, a superb replay feature from various camera angles after each leg, and a diverse selection of race modes, cars, and tracks, GT Advance 2: Rally Racing offers heavy horsepower in the GBA racing garage.

    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.
