    The environments are amazing, when on the deck of the tank the rain effects are extremely lifelike, along with rain drops hitting the ship and characters.

    It's a great party game for those in the need of a quick fix, but there's plenty of depth for those that desire to see it, as evidence in the copious amounts of secrets, strategies, and subtle nuances.

    Once you get used to it, however, tricks will come second nature, and you'll enjoy the view of the humongous levels, which explode in dazzling colors and glorified details.

    DMC’s lightning fast gameplay presents an experience that will make you play until your thumbs bleed.

    The reason why Maximo excels at what it does is because it simply aims to do one thing well – be a great action platformer.

    This game is so beautiful and addictive that I fear the quality of the writing in this review has greatly suffered, since I find it difficult to concentrate as the game beckons to me even now.

    An intense and fun romp to play through again and again.

    The most surprising, not to mention well-working, change in direction is Final Fantasy X's short-and-sweet storyline.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The gameplay still feels as fluid and tight as it always has, right down to the execution of some excellent running plays, defensive stops, sack opportunities and the ability to switch players on the fly with ease.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With its awesome gameplay, its slick presentation, and the classic theme of the '83 coin-op respected in full, Spy Hunter for the PlayStation 2 is one of the biggest surprises of the year.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Plain and simple, Halo is "Perfect Dark" taking place on a different world with a slightly modified story.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you don't have the patience or your dedication level doesn't extend past that of the average mule, then you'll probably want to skip out on this game...here's yet another excellent title that'll probably be overlooked by 90% of the gamers out there.

    Because Dead or Alive 3 utilizes nearly all the controls on the Xbox controller and does it with such ease, that alone is an incredible achievement.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Beautiful huge environments, a killer career mode, great trick system, and flexible audio setup make this game a must-own for any extreme sports gamer.
    • 89 Metascore

    If you give it a chance, however, it is likely that your dreams for the near future are going to be red, yellow and blue as you imagine ways of organizing a better day.

    • 85 Critic Score
    First comment that comes to mind is 'smooth'. The players have a good sense of motion in the game giving it a very realistic feel which is expressed more-over in the way 'motion capture' seems to never miss a beat.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    At some points, it exceeds the word challenging and becomes insanely difficult, even for the most experienced gamers.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This game offers a lot more in the way of content and polish over the original.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Damn good, and rivals just about any First Person Shooter on a console to date.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There are those ever-pesky inadequacies in the engine which project simply dreadful draw distances in addition to creating the dual annoyances of fog and slowdown.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    THPS2x does not have much more to offer than the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 as well as the fact that it is a port, even though it is still a great game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The gameplay is absorbing, and you’ll find yourself learning quite a bit about the nuts and bolts of racing.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The worst thing about this game is that saving a season fills up every last inch of space on the ill-named Memory Card 59.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It takes mind-blowing environments and mixes them with realistically moving and sounding characters that create one of the best pseudo-realities ever.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game’s monsters are also brilliantly designed. Many of the game’s monsters are enough alone to make it a horror title.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While nothing is overly spectacular, the game is very solid, never seems to 'drag its feet', and the storyline always pushes forward.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Extremely fun...The main flaw in Wreckless is in the area of control. The car handling dynamics are extremely loose to convey the feeling of being well...Wreckless.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Project Gotham's trademark feature, the Kudos meter, is no doubt the best feature in the entire game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Without the dramatic weather effects, this game would be teetering on slightly above average status.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The sound is one place where the game sort of falls back a bit.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What makes Fifa stand out the most is the fact that they're so many options and tournaments to choose from that I lost count.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The only thing to beware of with XG3 on GameCube is the somewhat limited helping of race tracks and a specific style of racing that doesn’t exactly jive with all types of people.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Limited single-player depth, as well as a few other minor issues, keeps UFC from being truly great.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Cinematic presentation, chilling Gotham City atmosphere, a good comic book story, and decent gameplay make this game stand out above the rest of the licensed games on their way this year.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Regardless of how innovative the concept was, more needs to be done to change it up and make it a worthwhile buy for Tony 2 owners.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    In all my life, I have never played a party game that has kept me interested for so long and as much fun as Fuzion Frenzy can be.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    There are match-ups and inconsistencies with the real NBA that are simply unacceptable and frustrating, especially when certain players successfully dunk numerous times when their real-life counterparts wouldn’t even dare to attempt such.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    If you are looking for some quick fun for you and your girlfriend pick this one up, but for anything else, the monkeys are only good for a rental at best.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The gameplay frustrations and problems with high polygons are what knocked the game’s score down the most. In all, I have to say: pick it up and have some fun. It’s worth the time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While it doesn't deliver the experience many were hoping for, there is very little wrong with this game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    As for sound, you'll probably feel the same way I do if you play this game frequently: Can the announcer please just shut up?! I mean, for just one second?
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    I have to mention and give two thumbs up to the excellent manual for this game.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The best action/adventure game on the Xbox. The spell system is fun, the boss encounters are well done, and there is enough game here to make you feel like you got your money’s worth.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's something a bit anticlimactic about the game... When you pull into the lead, win a race, or improve upon your lap time it would make the experience so much more gratifying if you got some acknowledgment, whether visual or audible.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Just plain fun.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Delta Storm’s controlling is efficient and simple.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tight controls are a huge redeeming factor in this game. All the vehicles in the game are very easy to maneuver.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The control is tight, the graphics don't look too shabby, and the sub-stages that break up the platforming action are second-to-none.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It became apparent to me after thorough play-time that Microsoft fell short with this title.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game contains so many AI flaws that playing it from a simulation fans standpoint, it doesn't do a good job representing basketball.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great graphics, a solid story, good sound effects and a slick multiplayer mode are undermined by a derivative, unispired and boring first player experience.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even with it's oversights, traveling around Springfield has never felt so real or alive and players (fans) dying to know what the town really looks like won't be disappointed.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Complete and flawless, the cinematics just make the entire game worthwhile. Watching Mr. Freeze deliver a blast from his freeze ray, I damn near feel out of my chair.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    This brings me to the combat system, the primary reason the game falls apart. A chunk of the blame belongs to the button configuration.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The platforming design and gem collecting feel like the sort of gameplay one would expect in an old-school game--and I don't mean this as a compliment.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The graphics are cute, but they don't nearly show off the true power of the Xbox like Project Gotham does, the levels are challenging but a tad bit on the difficult side, and the characters aren't as interesting as a Sonic the Hedgehog and friends.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Amidst the craptacular voice acting and sub-par story, the compelling control configuration and nifty implementation of Force powers save this game from trash compactor annihilation.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Final Four 2002 is by no means an awful game; the developers simply left a lot of room for improvement.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Proves to be yet another fine example shabby port of a decent PC title, that just falls apart when brought on to a console.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    It’s your typical, run-of-the-mill racer with a unique “concept” and nothing more.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    From the get-go Cel Damage is rather dull. The small shreds of a story that were fed to you throughout the opening sequences of the game are not carried over at all into the actual game.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Shaun Palmer may play like Tony Hawk, vaguely, but in the end you'll realize that it's nothing more than a rushed, sub-par entry into a genre that is already being dominated by EA Big's SSX series.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Rez
    Depth is definitely one of Rez's shortcomings, and sadly, it shows.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Casper fans would be well advised to stick with the comic books.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The best feature in the game is without a doubt the music, which ranges from soothing tunes, to intense scores that set the mood for the action – it's some of the best music I've heard on the PlayStation 2 in a while… now, if only the action were there, we'd be set!
