    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A staggering achievement in video gaming -- not only building on its stunning predecessor, but actually eclipsing it.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is the most beautiful fighting game ever to grace a home console.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Nothing on Dreamcast comes close to matching this game in terms of action and fun.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Oh yea, oh yea, glory hallelujah -- this is the game we've waited so long for.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    So vastly improved over its predecessor that it easily wrests away the title of "Best Football Videogame of All Time" and easily scores a direct hit.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A great experience. It's as close to a perfect rendition of the D&D universe as we've ever seen.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There is no masking this one; it is, to mince no more words, a wonder.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    If nothing else, Final Fantasy IX is a work of utterly sumptuous beauty, with gorgeous environments, jaw-dropping cut-scenes and detailed characters.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    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.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Delivers on every level -- gameplay, graphics, sound and, especially, originality. Greedy as we are, we can only complain that there isn't even more goodness.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Even though the graphics are almost identical to the last version, everything else has been upgraded enough to make this sequel better than last year and, by default, the best racing game of all time.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    SSX
    Beautiful graphics, huge courses, great multiplayer and infinite replayability round out the package to make this hands-down the best game on the PS2.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Those who haven't already bought a copy of it should promptly have their heads examined.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Perfectly walking the line between arcade racer and sim, it delivers fantastic, deep, engrossing racing action without the endless twiddling of a sim or the ridiculous control of an arcade racer. There are no weapons or powerups, either.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Smoother than The Glide, bigger than The Diesel and cooler than The Iceman, NBA 2K1 is as about as good as basketball gets.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    If you're severely allergic to overly cute-and-cuddly games, take some Dramamine before heading off on Mario's adventure.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The ability to control, design, influence and sometimes destroy the lives of little virtual versions of ourselves is mysteriously engrossing.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    With its gorgeous graphics, brilliant storyline and perhaps the best combat interface ever designed, Vagrant Story is one of the greatest dungeon crawls ever to be unleashed on the gaming public.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Although almost ridiculously simple, "Virtua Tennis" is more addictive than chocolate-coated, sugar-frosted crack.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A game published by Nintendo where players avoid globs of feces and urinate on flaming demons is something that simply has to make you laugh.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Jaw-dropping graphics. The level of detail on each player is almost silly.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    While its direct competition is the Dreamcast's "Virtua Tennis," those who pass up this one because of cutesy characters and backgrounds will miss out on one of the best games for the system, hands down.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    More creative minigames, a slightly higher difficulty level, superb level design and some of the best realtime graphics the PlayStation has ever seen all make Year of the Dragon a winner.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The original Dreamcast game blew us away, and there are so many improvements to this version it'd be impossible to list them all.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    But for sheer fun, there are a few games that can compete with Tony Hawk 2's excellent mix of tricks, bails and hidden swag.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The best adventure game in years. That's one of the easier ways to describe The Longest Journey. It's also the longest, the most rewarding and the most mature.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    So imaginative, colorful and funny that it serves to remind us how insufferably gloomy and witless most shooters are.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The MOST FUN 2D fighter game of all time.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the most compelling, beautiful and impressive pieces of code we have played in a long, long time. It is also insanely addictive.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It has improved graphics, better controls, smarter AI and a new momentum meter that adds to the drama.
