    A fun, detailed and graphically lovely golf game that bodes well for future trips to the links on the PlayStation2.

    If you're after a simulation and you like collecting and upgrading your cars, you might want to wait for "GT 3," but if you're after an adrenaline fix and a fun racing game, then look no further.

    Capcom's Dreamcast Evil looks a lot smoother than the PSOne version does, and the character and creature models appear to be as gorgeous as the ones featured on the PC edition.

    Featuring dozens of challenging missions, a grueling tournament mode and an infinite number of customizable options for building, dissecting and re-working mechs, Armored Core 2 is gorgeous, challenging and thorough.

    The levels in Banjo-Tooie border on being too large -- it's rather easy to get lost in many areas. The level design, though, is superb, and the visuals are top-notch for the N64.

    While seemingly dogpiled with new buildings and features to impress the first-timer, it's actually become so feature-dense and micromanagerial... that only hard-core SimPsychopaths will really be able to appreciate the package

    There's more than 50 hours of continually branching narrative and vicious freeform combat awaiting those brave enough to enter its dark and twisted world.

    Absolutely outstanding, but there's still room for improvement.

    Not the Dreamcast wrestling sim we've been waiting for, but still a great deal of fun.

    There is innovation certainly, but under the startlingly brilliant control scheme lies a golf game every bit as staid and archaic as any in memory.

    Nice graphics and physics and a number of secondary features make for a satisfying ride, but it's ultimately lacking in the innovative thrills we've come to expect from Sony's highly hyped machine.

    The recipe might be getting old, but what comes out of the oven is still plenty tasty.

    It offers more than "Civilization 2," but not a lot more. Fighting has been expanded in strategically interesting ways, but additions to diplomacy, technology and interface are primarily cosmetic and flat.

    Even with the supported keyboard and mouse, UT is only a good game that will become a great one once the PS2 heads online.

    May feel like last year's version, but it still offers exciting football for one and all.

    An inexcusably shallow draw-in rate and the worst automap and world map combo ever seen in a modern RPG conspire to yank the coveted Direct Hit ranking away from what is, in all other ways, a stellar experience.

    Running at an unbeatable 60 FPS and loaded to the gills with impressive weaponry and unwary enemies, Timesplitters is the perfect FPS to debut with the PS2.

    The once elegant and powerful weapon of the Jedi has been reduced to a crude chopping device that will kill a given enemy in five or six hits.

    As dopey as the AI is, it really is a lot of fun to jump into a level where you know that you're completely surrounded and outnumbered and gun the hell out of everything that moves.

    The games themselves look good and play even better, but only against other humans. It's just not fun to play minigames against a computer, no matter how well they're both programmed.

    An attempt shagged to the left that lands just inside the uprights.

    A surprisingly fun action game that doubles as a great multiplayer title as well as a mind-bending puzzle game.

    Though it doesn't stand out technically, the physics and gameplay modes lend themselves to hopping right in and hitting the dirt.

    Despite some technical flaws and a difficult user interface, Shogun will please wargamers looking for a solid title.

    More complicated moves like an over-and-under are possible, but nothing compares to working your man down low with Shaq, holding down the turbo button while turning the corner for a gorilla slam.

    The gameplay itself is too complicated for casual gamers and the sound, while better than GameDay's, is still irritating.

    Despite its obvious deficiencies, from the unnecessarily irritating save system to the repetitiously moronic combat system, "Valkyrie Profile" remains an intriguing, often breathtaking roleplaying experience.

    Awful camera control and a dated engine ensure that, as thoroughly enjoyable as Legends 2 is, the series still has a ways to go before equaling the brilliance of its two-dimensional brethren.

    The characters within the game are incredibly well detailed, but the world they're placed in is bland to the point of boredom.
