    This great engine and these great visuals are draped over gameplay that is just so-so.

    • 74 Critic Score
    Fun and immersive while it lasts, but unfortunately it’s a short ride with little replayability (save, maybe, for the multiplayer modes).

    What was supposed to be Red Faction’s raison d’être – French for “cool feature designed to make it seem like more than just a cheap Half-Life clone set on Mars”--[the Geo Mod technology] turns out to be its biggest disappointment.

    An absolute blast to play through one time exactly and only. If you have to backtrack at all (which unfortunately you do) the fun rapidly diminishes, which adds up to zero replay value.

    Titles such as "Etherlords" have blown the genre open, and in comparison Disciples II seems markedly dated.

    Definitely not for the casual gamer or anyone into pretty graphics, Sid Meier’s Antietam! is great game nonetheless, providing an accurate and historic simulation of one of the bloodiest (i.e. casualty-filled) single days in American history.

    The graphics are dated and Ryundo's bad-boy character has been done to death. But those are only small faults in an otherwise excellent game.

    Team Sabre's single player game is not bad. It's got a good balance between action and strategy, and it has a very good orders system that covers everything you want and more.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent shooter and it has its merits, even on a console where new software is getting mighty scarce. However, if you were only going to own one, this probably wouldn't be it.

    If you've already got last year's Bomberman Tournament for GBA, you probably don't need this one as well, unless you're a Bomberman freak.

    DOA XBV's laid back approach is refreshing. Like a real vacation, nothing is particularly urgent in the game, which is almost unheard of--almost every game out there is about WINNING or DYING.

    Vampire Night isn't the best light-gun game out there, but it's still a decent game and certainly the best looking light-gun shooter on any system.

    You'll find yourself irritated with the pace, yet unable to stop. Diggles then, succeeds greatly at engaging game players, yet not so well at entertaining them.
    • 72 Metascore

    Nothing if not original.

    Perhaps the coolest part of WarioWare is that it has lots of nods to Nintendo history. There are minigames based on classic Nintendo games, like The Legend of Zelda (touch the fairies to rescue them) and Metroid (pull alien critters off of Samus), and many more.

    It certainly doesn’t take top ranking for hoop games on the PS2, but it has a lot of nice features to offer.
    • 71 Metascore

    Beyond the HD pack, nothing has been done to evolve the game as a whole.
    • 78 Metascore

    RPGs live and die on factors other than graphics and while LUNAR is weak in the graphic department (other than the first class anime sequences), it makes it up in spades in the more important areas such as plot, characterization and game system.

    A far cry from the grittiness of "Rainbow Six."
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even the new additions to the franchise lack enough depth to warrant picking this up if you already own "Here Comes The Pain."
    • 65 Metascore

    A decent game. It looks pretty darn good, has a swell sense of speed, and the music adds to the frantic pace (though the sounds bites in the game are kinda repetitive).
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    I like the new modes because each one puts the player on the defensive at some point, and I love being the centre of attention in a multiplayer game and facing overwhelming odds. Yeah, I'm a masochist, sue me.

    Through no fault of the developers, some of the physics of riding a bike (as opposed to a skateboard) make this game less fun than playing the Tony Hawk series. Think about it, a skateboard can go both ways, a bike cannot.

    With no horrible complaints or exciting highs it is just another basketball game for the PS2.

    If you like swordplay, if you like good story, if you like Asian ambiance, you'll like The Way of the Samurai.
    • 72 Metascore

    Vastly improves on the original "Civilization: Call to Power" but still falls far short of the original, original "Civilization" series.
    • 60 Metascore

    The game is completely customizable in almost every category including graphics and difficulty.
    • 86 Metascore

    More of a strategy-focused game than a real dog-fighter, Allegiance is as simple or as complex as you want to get. Just don’t expect to save the universe from the cockpit of your starship.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a fun game. The more people you get gathered around the PlayStation (up to eight) to play, the more fun it is.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game's biggest problem though is its paltry length... In the end, CSI is lots of fun for fans of the TV show, and is a decent adventure game in its own right.
