    Even with its twitchy control and funky camera angles, it's a top-notch action/adventure worthy of the moniker. Excelsior!

    The best NBA hoops game on the system.

    Even though the gameplay is up to par, the graphics need to keep up with the times.

    Great graphics and sound, tried-and-true gameplay, and wall-to-wall blasting mayhem make this a winner.

    • 80 Critic Score
    With more than 50 WWF superstars, a fantastic array of matches, and unparalleled, blisteringly fast gameplay, it's the only squared-circle brawler you need to buy. Anything else, especially the horrendous "WCW Backstage Assault," isn't worth your time.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even though it offers the same style of gameplay, its alternate story line, engaging action, and excellent musical score will have you sneaking behind enemy lines until the wee hours of the morning.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its engaging mix of humor, excellent graphics, and superior multiplayer mode, this is one "Army Men" game that's worth checking out.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The added improvements, like the new wings, will ensure gaming pleasure for months to come.
    • 80 Metascore

    Paradigm has done an excellent job of re-creating a cartoon universe with colorful characters, hilarious animation, and eye-popping visuals that are fun for all ages.

    This year's game has excellent graphics, a great frame rate, fluid gameplay, and plenty of new features.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There could be a bit more variety to the sound clips, but it doesn't matter much--after the fourth or fifth time you hear "Pi-ka-chu!" you'll be pushed to the brink of madness anyway.

    Packed with a plethora of wrestlers, features, and gameplay options, WWF: No Mercy is all the wrestling game you'll ever need and then some.

    • 80 Critic Score
    If "GoldenEye" was the Sean Connery of Bond games, and "Tomorrow Never Dies" was George Lazenby, then The World Is Not Enough is a likable Roger Moore--showing its age, in it for the money, and prone to bouts of slowdown, but still sporting that old Bond magic.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although the game may look like a kids' title, Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers has enough depth and challenge to keep even the most seasoned gamer busy.

    D2
    A great story-driven game that takes elements of several genres to create a worthwhile experience.

    Classic blast-everything-in-sight gameplay that's wildly entertaining and highly addictive.

    It's a lot harder to get the full fruity experience that is Samba de Amigo without the maracas. Unfortunately, the maraca controllers -- which are sold separately -- will set gamers back 80 bucks a pair.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great Street Fighter game, but only for purists.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    UFC doesn't KO the rest of the Dreamcast's brawling lineup as the best title on the system, but its solid fighting-game engine and distinct mixture of realistic fighting styles and brutal moves make it one fun, tough customer.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though crappy brakes take away some of the game's drivability, the superb graphics and special effects still offer a winning combination for DC off-road enthusiasts.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent home translation of an arcade hit, but could use a bit more tweaking to truly shine.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ends up being a quirky gem in the Dreamcast catalog thanks to rock-solid gameplay, great graphics, and a loopy sense of humor. Best of all, players are guaranteed to see improvement in their typing if they log some time into the game.

    While it's certainly not a revolutionary offering, NFL Blitz 2001 contains a nice variety of gameplay modes and exhaustive editing features that should keep fans of frenetic arcade football happy.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Boasting some of the most impressive physics and visuals ever to find their way into a current-generation console racer, VP is another of those damnable "must-have" titles for anyone who appreciates a finely tuned driving experience mated to state-of-the-art graphics.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A squad-level shooter that's easier to get into than "Rainbow Six" and tons more fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A solid combat flight sim that rivals many PC games for challenge and realism.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This game whips "Sydney 2000" for overall fun, graphics, and playability, and "Virtua Athlete 2000" in depth.
