    THPS2 takes the original game, pulls it into the garage, and puts the whole supercharger extras package on, and peels out to you. The skateboarding experience punches up 2-3 notches to a game that is definitely worthy of your attention.

    Talk all you want about the mighty Playstation 2. I'm sorry, I can't hear you, I'm too busy whoopin some guy in Cleveland's rear end.

    Maybe I'm just being picky, but I found the camera positioning quite annoying at times, especially in the last section of the final boss.
    • 93 Metascore

    The only reason I can't give the game a perfect score is the 4 player limitation on online mode.
    • 93 Metascore

    Not as smooth as "Test Drive V-Rally," but the trade-off is that the game almost NEVER slows down.
    • 93 Metascore

    Online play, new moves, better AI, and street ball. No basketball game on any other system is going to touch NBA 2K1 this year.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    I can't get over the look of the game. Even the feel and sounds of the players grunting, and the racket hitting the ball is just so realistic.

    What you have here is simply the greatest RPG that has ever been created. And while I put "Skies of Arcadia" right up with it, it's still a big number 2.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A simple, yet incredibly fun game.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game LOOKS like the UFC, FEELS like the UFC, PLAYS like the UFC.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is not only the best racing game on Dreamcast, it's the best racing game ever.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This thing is a joy with a good wheel. Very responsive, and very realistic.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is probably the toughest racing game I have ever played. I have yet to finish 1st in a race yet, and I have logged serious hourage into it...If you are a true racing fan, there is no excuse for not owning this game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the better driving/sims on the market, and could even give the heralded "GT2000" a run for it's money.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The new "wing" feature allows you to fly through the streets of San Francisco with added control along with the ability to create new stunts and tricks.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    And while the game itself is straightforward in gameplay, the difficulty of the puzzles are almost outrageous.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    I saw rendered worlds that looked almost hand-drawn in Looney Tunes cartoon fashion, with cel-rendered cartoon characters. In the end, add to that a solid and smooth framerate, and a great cartoon look. It's really like playing a Warner Bros Looney Tune.

    One cool thing Sega was able to do was cast Leonard Nimoy (the infamous Dr. Spock) as your narrator and guide to raising your Seaman.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game is packed with over 70 scenarios including everything from the original Railroad Tycoon II and their Second Century expansion pack, plus all new scenarios designed exclusively for the Dreamcast.

    The biggest difference in this and other racers is the adaptive AI. The other cars do not run the same line all the time. They will cut corners, and will try to run you off the road if need be.
    • 79 Metascore

    And maybe in the future, you can race through more than just one road in Tokyo.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Sure, it's not 3D in-your-face graphics, or a techno soundtrack. But I'll tell you what it is.....fun.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fantastic game, and a worthy sequal to last year's sleeper hit.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With online play, and a moving "Star Wars"-style storyline, you definately want to climb in the cockpit of StarLancer and take a ride around the galaxy.
    • 78 Metascore

    If you haven't picked up NFL Blitz 2001, and you want a fast paced, no rules, slamfest for you and your buds, then you need to go get this game. Still here??
    • 77 Metascore

    What Demolition Racer lacks in graphical power, it makes up in raw fun power.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    But beware, you'll need a little time to learn the controls.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is a game of strategy and time, so quick-gamers need not apply.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    You can see things like vapor trails coming off the wings, sun glare, nicely textured landscape, variable weather, and extremely detailed planes.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The off-roader's dream game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's a TON of detail, in both the textures and backgrounds, and your tank and enemies. Very VERY nice looking game
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    I think if you're looking for something new besides the next skateboarding game, you'll be more than happy with this game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a few new boxers, and an enhanced move set. Past that, you'll find it's the same old game, in a new box.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There's just something about it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You're flying down a mountain, and you look like your going to run into a rock wall, and all of a sudden, the wall MOVES and makes way to snow. Now if this was a science fiction game, then I could understand. But it's not.

    Where Speedzone really excels is in it's gameplay. This works well in both online and offline racing.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What do you get when you cross Activision's "Vigilante 8: Second Offense" with the greatness of Star Wars? Star Wars Demolition! And I mean this literally.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The most impressive thing about the "Royal Rumble" is that thanks to the power of the Dreamcast, Yukes threw NINE guys in the ring at once, and with no slowdown or issues.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    But if you're looking for a more paced driving with a purpose and a penchant for destruction, you'll have a smashing good time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The one saving grace for MTR is it's easy controls and it's semi-fun gameplay.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's bad one-player, it's even worse multiplayer.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's definitely the best of the olympic games out there.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    I really really wish Sega would say they were working something with some deeper gameplay. (subliminal message beginning) "Streets......of......Rage."
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Playing Sarge's Heroes is not very fun. It's difficult to change and use weapons, or even to move around.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    And the best part about Maximum Pool? ONLINE baby! Online play supports all games in Maximum Pool, both traditional and "maximum" hidden games.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a modern day sequel to an old classic arcade game. Gameplay is going to be simple, and the plot pretty mindless.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's fine if you're buying it for your kids to play (which really is the purpose of "Toy Story 2"), but Activision could have done a lot to make this better for us older folk.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's still tough to move Buzz around, and good luck trying to aim and shoot at a baddie.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you intend on playing by yourself, don't expect to win anytime soon. The computer players are cheap, if not downright nasty.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It needs a little polishing. However, given that, it's not a deadweight game, and if you're an Olympic fanatic, you can overlook the flaws in the game.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    I'm currently in gave 5 of my 52 game season, and I would be lying if I said I'm not enjoying the game.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's no real "collision detection". If you take a turn in the air, you bounce off that magical invisible wall and land right on your wheels with no damage.

    Where Andy MacDonald beats "Hawk" over the head with his own board is the sheer amount of playability in MTV Sports Skateboarding.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One thing ECW:AR walks all over the competition with are options and matches. I have never seen so many type of matches in a game before.
