    It's nice to see that Midway has really listened to video game fans in the development of Mortal Kombat: Deception. The game is a considerable improvement over "Deadly Alliance."

    The gameplay is truly a remarkable achievement... Aesthetically pleasing, lots to do, lots of options, lots of ships and weapons to buy, and a great story. Sounds good to me.

    RoK has given gamers the opportunity to take the road less traveled and, if gamers will only grasp onto these new possibilities, this will make all the difference.

    Blast Corps is a cartridge worth it's weight in explosives. There's no game like this available for any other console but something tells me, we'll be seeing plenty of copy cats in the future.

    Simply a brilliant fighting game, and it seems that the best thing that ever happened to PlayStation 2 gamers

    It is hideously complicated---and woe to the foolhardy player who does not pay attention to the game’s tutorials and attack-formation options---but somehow it works, and provides not only a stark, beautiful treat for the eyes but a staggering change to the genre of the real-time strategy game.

    [Its] combination of great racing, beautiful graphics, and fun multiplayer make it one of the best racing simulations on the market.

    Yes, there's a fairly steep learning curve, and yes, accelerated simulations such as "M1 Tank Platoon II" might look a smidgen better, but those are minor quibbles. If you like tank simulations, or have ever thought you might like tank simulations, this is the game for you.

    The defensive controls for World Series Baseball have to be the best out there, bar none.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the truly rare games which induces that special kind of gaming exhaustion caused by sleeping two or three pitiful hours at night (while you dream about the game) before getting up to do it all over again.

    A beautifully designed, quirky game. If you like Zelda, you'll love it. If adventure games and bus rides are your thing, pick it up.

    Even if Madden NFL 2001 wasn’t the only game in town, it would still be one of the best football games ever.

    Bustling with alien activity, brimming with challenges and boasting the largest collection of controllable vehicles you've ever seen in an action-adventure game, Body Harvest is a blast from beginning to end. It was definitely worth the wait!

    A great game with high replay value. This Square-Enix title will satisfy even the most hardcore RPG fans with its innovative gameplay and many features.

    The patented pacing, mechanics and rewards of the adventure go down like a perfectly aged fine wine.

    The graphics, the busy environments, the interactivity... every element taken by itself it pretty praiseworthy, stick 'em all on the same disk and they add up to good things.

    A few new weapons, a 3D take and cleaner visuals can't hide the fact that this is essentially five year old game play that Nintendo could have done in its sleep. Although I found Mario Kart 64 to be eminently playable, I just couldn't shake the feeling that it was a knock off of the first game.

    First-rate graphics, awesome motion captured animation, smooth 3D scrolling, as well as authentic riders, bikes and tracks... It has it where it counts, in the fun category.

    An outstanding update of the Dreamcast version–-does truly replicate this most unique of races, while not forcing players to endure a full day of gaming.
    • 87 Metascore

    One of the best PS2 games on the market. It combines well-paced action, a strong story, and AD&D rules into an exciting romp through the most famous city on the Sword Coast.

    The game is so cute, so catchy, and so compelling, that its appeal is truly universal.

    It’s beautiful, it’s challenging, and it will keep you occupied for a long, long time.

    Grinding through the seven gigantic levels at snappy speeds, you'll quickly--and happily--realize the controls are tighter than Ebenezer Scrooge's rectum.

    Comic book fans will love how the game faithfully adapts the experience of being the Hulk, and people who have never even picked up a comic will enjoy the wanton destruction the players are capable of wreaking.

    Fun is the operative word here and this game delivers the brand of entertainment that gamers have come to expect from Sega and the Game Boy Advance.

    One nice touch is that "finishing" a mission is not necessarily the same as finishing it--any scruffy nerfherder can earn the game's bronze medals, but it takes a serious attention to detail (and the ability to succeed without overzealous use of the targeting computer) to earn Gold medals.

    While it's a shame the Xbox Live stuff never materialized, Tony Hawk 4 still manages to top its previous outing on the Xbox.
    • 74 Metascore

    I love the fact that the game's exploration is open-ended.

    SimGolf does manage to provide a game that is especially simple to play and continues to be fun long after you've managed to turn a profit.

    The replay value of Shogun: Total War is immense.
