    Was there ever any doubt that this game would rock?

    Whether you're looking at the graphics, the gameplay, the server response, the community activity, this is one staggeringly good game.

    Wow! What an excellent game! What's surprising about Mario Golf is just how sophisticated the simulation is. Fans of the real life sport will not be disappointed by Nintendo's cartoon interpretation of it, nor will fans of the Mario games be turned off by the complexity and "just one more time" challenge found on this cartridge.

    For the first time in a single player game, I truly felt I was playing my way through a pen and paper fantasy campaign.

    Bushido Blade is a classic. The sequel for this fighter is already creating waves in Japan, so it shouldn't be too long before we're embroiled in an even more sophisticated adaptation of the most horrific of activities.

    Calling this game huge is an understatement...All told, San Andreas is about four times the size of any previous GTA game.
    • 87 Metascore

    I am particularly impressed though with the customization abilities of the game.

    It is better than "FFVII" and "FFVIII." In fact, it may be the best PlayStation RPG out there.

    What it does have is a great story, fun puzzles, and epic battles. Any RPG fan would be absolutely nuts to pass on Paper Mario.

    So essentially, the graphics, the sound, the story and the puzzles are marvellous. They all add up to one fantastic adventure game.

    In the spirit of the whole new-beginnings thing, let me lift the poster-slogan from the old '70s horror movie "Phantasm:" IF THIS ONE DOESN'T SCARE YOU, YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD!

    Although the game is much like Tony Hawk 2, overall this makes the better total package, and the addition of the multiplayer alone makes it worth getting.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    There’s poo humor galore, but there’s also sly satire, clever parody and deep belly-laughs aplenty. To say nothing of the challenging gameplay, engaging storyline and whacked-out characters.

    Combining well balanced gameplay, excellent track designs and a killer soundtrack, Wipeout 3 is the high water mark for the techno-racer category.

    Just as "Half-life" and "Unreal" revolutionized the action genre, Deus Ex takes us to the next step and ushers in the Age of the Interactive.

    The brilliantly motion captured player movement, smarter players and broadcast style presentation are nothing short of awesome and really make for a complete hockey experience.

    Sure to be copied by many games to come, Sacrifice’s easy interface and complex play mechanics prove that Shiny’s creativity and desire to push the limits of gaming have produced another solid title that lives up to the hype.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    A rich, polished game from a developer obviously intent on improving the credibility of its franchise with a focus on solid gameplay, and not just pushing the same tired character into different locations year after year. Right Lara?
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Despite a few imperfections, a work of art. And like the best that Psygnosis has brought us, it is a title that every PlayStation owner should acquire and cherish.

    And of course, the true beauty of Vice City is total, absolute, glorious freedom...I guess what I am trying to say is this game is REALLY FRICKIN' GOOD.

    Trivial shortcomings aside, Age of Empires II: Age of Kings is a good-looking and feature-full 2D RTS that manages to provide hours and hours of solo or multiplayer gaming enjoyment. The kicker? With its extremely lean system requirements, you don’t need the latest and greatest computer in order to get in on the fun.

    A unique game with a perfect blend of great visuals and a totally engaging gameplay style.

    One of the best comic games to come along in years … and it's certainly the best X-Men game I've ever played.

    Another glowing aspect of StarCraft is its absolutely brilliant Campaign Editor. This is the very best make-your-own game interface ever made.

    The physics model in Hitman is a definite milestone in computer gaming. No other computer game to date has been able to achieve the realistic effects you’ll find here.

    Offers up the kind of gaming experience that you will never forget.

    It will seduce you, beguile you and turn you into an unproductive but satisfied mess. Those that can break away from its grasp and lead a life away from the computer screen are to be saluted.

    Just like the previous Crash games, CTR is utterly polished and addictive to a fault... That's right, you heard me, CTR is a better game than Nintendo's "Mario Kart."

    In my opinion, this is the best game available for the Nintendo DS and one of the best strategy games of its generation. A must have for any DS owner and if you don't have a DS, this is a viable reason to get one.

    Don't be fooled by its size. LCS delivers the full GTA experience in the palm of your hand. Definitely worth the time and money if you own a PSP.
