    Outstanding visuals, an ominous orchestral score, a well-scripted story with real plot twists, excellent voice acting and a host of brand new ships and weapons, Cataclysm is a sequel to Homeworld as much as "Aliens" was a sequel to "Alien." It’s better, has more action, and plays longer.

    Couple this awesome visual presentation with a solid game engine and then couple that with a painstakingly faithful Voyager plot and you’ve simply got one of the best Star Trek action/adventure games you’re ever going to come across.

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

    The audio is extremely well done because it is a major component of gameplay, not just presentation. I don't think I've ever spent as much time listening to a game as I did with this one.

    The game is full of the little details that define greatness. If Warlords Battlecry II isn't one of the early leaders for real-time strategy game of the year I'll eat my magical staff.

    Its innovative combat system, addictive click and kill adventuring, and solid story make it a title that keeps reviewers up late.

    For those who like the unique challenge of timed racing and the strategies that off-road rallies require, Screamer 4X4 is a must have.

    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.

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

    The thing that I enjoy most about this arcade style hockey is the big hits. You can actually practice the many skills you will need in this game, including driving your opponent through the glass.

    The massive number of features and solid gameplay more than make up for any of my minor gripes.

    Casual gamers will no doubt be driven off by its lack of special items and overall difficulty, but for those who can appreciate this type of game, it is a rich and beautiful experience that leaves one craving another sequel.

    Through careful scripting, disturbing audio-visual tricks, solid gameplay and a judicious use of cinematics, Fatal Frame manages to convey the disarming sense of feeling one's sanity crumble under the assault of otherworldly influences...At least, that's what the Voices told me to say.

    An excellent action game. Or is it strategy? Or perhaps action-strategy? Whatever it is, it is damn fun.

    The kind of product Westwood is largely known for--complete, compelling, full of great little touches, and just generally elegant (which is a funny thing to say about a game of pirates, pillage and plunder, but so be it).
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 86 Metascore

    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.

    The Jedi Starfighter is quick, but only has lasers. But...you can use the Force against enemy ships. Without a doubt, this is the big draw, and it's way cool.

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

    Just when Age of Empires II was starting to seem a little played out, Ensemble Studios has made it a game that might just keep you up late again with The Conquerors expansion.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    If you're a Resident Evil Veteran, this is the smartest and most polished of the series.

    The number of different ways you can play GTA III is astonishing.

    It’s a rare game that gives you the feeling of being a small cog in a giant war machine. An important cog, for sure, but the world doesn’t end just because you’re not in it anymore. Somehow, that says a lot about how realistic and immersive this game is.

    Striking graphics, realistic environments, interesting and diverse characters--what’s not to like? Really nothing.

    A well-told story set on a lush planet with varied environments and a strong action heroin makes FAKK2 one of the best 3rd person action games around.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a great game for those who tire of the endless tank-rushes of real-time strategy games past. Victory is determined not by the speed of the clicks, but rather the strength of decisions.

    I'm hooked. It's been a long while since I found myself staying up until 3:00 in the morning for days on end. Come to think of it, the last time I did that was when I used to play "Starsiege: Tribes."

    Currently the high water mark for the PS2.

    A must-see RTS experience with a rich single-player campaign and a whopping 14 styles of multiplayer competition.
