    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.

    It certainly isn't very innovative, but it is expertly crafted and balanced.

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

    So good, veterans may be tempted to replay the whole game from the beginning...a fine product. Unfortunately, the new areas add only about 15 hours of gameplay. While short for a full game, it is a tolerable length for an expansion.

    It's not for everyone, but those who spend their afternoons daydreaming of driving at 200MPH in an oval will not be disappointed.

    No longer 2D or turn-based, HOMAM on the PS2 isn't as deep as might be expected, but it's fast, easy to learn and the battles are incredibly fun.

    For the player who relishes a realtime space strategy simulation, nothing can touch the depth of this game.

    While we all know that a life of crime ultimately doesn't pay, a joyride with the fresh and fast Smuggler's Run is rewarding through and through.

    Although it's a short experience, Frogger 2 was nearly all fun.

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

    It's certainly not the game for everyone, but those of us seeking a slightly more sophisticated take on old-school beat-'em-ups will find many hours of blistering goodness.

    Fits like a familiar old glove (or gauntlet), but smoother, better-fitting and lined in fine, Japanese, brocaded silk.

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

    We can think of plenty of ways to blow a Benjamin, but few would offer quite as much bang for the buck.

    While paling in comparison to its celebrated predecessor, "Chrono Cross's" great character design and intriguing combat system ensure that the game is anything but the misfire it could so easily have been.

    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.

    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.

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

    Every aspect from the story to the sound will be completely familiar to anyone who's dabbled with the series before, and while this latest adventure doesn't do much to advance the series, it's a fine little game nonetheless.

    The addition of passable graphics, surprisingly good production values and quirky, fun gameplay make picking up this $9.99 title a pretty easy decision.

    Thankfully, lackluster graphics and singular thrills do not a poor game make.

    The track editor is what really sets the title apart, though, allowing players to easily make a variety of tracks and race on them immediately.

    The AI even seems capable of adapting to a gamer's tendencies; a play that worked great in one situation may not work so well if used in the same situation a second time.

    While this "odyssey of obesity" may not be for everyone, beneath the dated look lies more than enough quality gameplay to appease "Dragon Warrior" fanatics and nostalgic retrogamers alike.

    One of the better PSOne kart racers we've played recently -- with crisp, colorful visuals, loosely demanding gameplay and a great soundtrack.

    Not the best in the genre, and a little sugar-coated, but tight controls and good graphics are what they are, and this game's got them.

    It looks great, plays smoothly and comes packed with that fuzzy warm feeling that invariably comes from the Disney experience.

    With one nagging exception, there's really pretty little wrong with the game, but it doesn't exactly push any boundaries either.

    It's got bottomless depth, good AI and everything we loved so much about the series. It just doesn't have much new stuff to talk about.
