    It's the best fighting game on the planet! If you've already got this game in another form, though, and you aren't obsessed with it, then there's no real reason to upgrade.

    Without a doubt, the closest thing I've ever seen to a game that approximates a real honest-to-goodness game of pool...There is honestly nothing that you could want in a pool game that you won't find here -- well, with the exception of stale cigarette smoke and a fistfight or two.

    Comparing this to "NFL2K" on the Dreamcast, you can immediately see that the PS2 is pumping out zillions more polygons. There are reflections on helmets. There are weather conditions that look like the real thing.

    The videogame equivalent of a stained-glass window. Beautiful in composition, masterful in design, inspiring, magical, and yet sometimes distant and cold. It's a wonderful game, but it's hard to love.

    The best straight-action title on the Dreamcast, and by far the most brilliant Episode I related video game ever produced.

    This Spider-Man lives up to everything you wanted it to -- it's Spectacular! It's Amazing! It's Sensational! Most importantly, it's not a clone of all the other Spider-Man games!

    Above and beyond the course designer, the online play, or the graphics, this is what makes Links 2001 the golf game of champions in my mind -- the ability to create an even playing field for anyone who wants to join in.

    If you're looking for a story to unravel over 40+ hours and you don't mind wading through a few dungeons, you'll love Lunar 2. This is one classic that deserves the name.

    This is the "Jet Moto" or "Wipeout" of the PS2 launch -- a rare game that makes driving a hell of a lot of fun.

    Despite its flaws, Quake III on the Dreamcast is probably the best FPS game on any console, with the possible exception of the almighty "Goldeneye."

    There's so much fun to be had in finding new moves, beating your own scores, and trying to land a cool combo that you'll find yourself overlooking the problems and just playing, enjoying the occasional crash landing and forgetting what time it is.

    Hardcore sim fans may find it a little weak, but if you've ever wanted to get into combat sim games but were turned off by the complexity, this is the game for you!

    The best action/adventure-style game in the PS2 launch, so if you're looking for a beat-em-up with depth, DW2 is your game.

    "Armored Core 2" is a love-it-or-hate-it kind of game, and once you're hooked, you're hooked for life.

    "MDK2" may take you a while to finish. A long while. The game is difficult, to say the least.
    • Antagonist
    • 59 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Simplistic, annoying, and suffers from quirky controls and poor audio. It's also a hell of a lot of fun to play.

    It's a great game for what it does, but not everyone's going to enjoy watching polygonal people do stupid stuff on a bike.

    The most important thing, though, is that Raven seems to have actually made the world of Star Trek: Voyager -- dare I say it? -- fun; an impressive task in and of itself.

    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's the lack of single-player fun that really keeps this title out of the 90+ range -- but if you're looking for a great splitscreen FPS to play with your pals, this is the one to get.

    With a lot of creativity, Sonic Team has taken the boardgame to the digital age, and made a fun, sometimes frustrating board game that is a lot more than throwing some dice and moving around a rectangle.

    In spite of myself, I really liked this game. It's really reminiscent of "Track and Field" -- the old arcade game -- only more complete and much better looking.

    It's worth playing, and will definitely give you ten or so hours of gameplay goodness -- but it may also give you ten or so hours of technical difficulty.

    To my disappointment, the sequel didn't turn out as cool as the first one, but it's still an addictive game with most of the characters that fans of the original have come to know and lust, er, love.
