    Video games based on TV franchises don't always live up to the shows that inspired them. Fortunately, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an exception.

    The most intense and realistic boxing simulation ever created thanks to its deep and challenging game play, responsive controls, cutting-edge visuals, and something not enough boxing games have: emotion.

    • 77 Critic Score
    A good WWII shooter with great graphics and effects, but missing the finer points and freedom in the first-person mode.

    This game is obviously targeted to male adolescents, so the T&A and obnoxious commentary may turn off other potential consumers. But if you take Outlaw Volleyball for what it is, it will provide many hours of enjoyable action.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    While it lacks 3-D graphics and an impressive use of lighting and shadows found in its predecessors, the stealthy action game still captures the thrill of modern espionage.

    Unfortunately, there isn't an online option to let friends play over the Internet-based Xbox Live service.

    Beautiful but muddy environments, frustrating puzzles, repetitious opponents and clunky Kong controls.
    • 76 Metascore

    Unlike Hollywood horror movies that often get worse with each new sequel ("Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan," for example), Konami's scary Silent Hill series gets better -- and creepier -- with age.
