    The mix of realism, accessibility, and dazzling visuals makes this one of the best boxing games available on any console.

    By the time you finish the game, you’ll have ingested almost a full novel’s worth of text. Button-mashing "Diablo" junkies may balk at this, but Planescape: Torment really isn’t for them in the first place.

    Not only does it add to the original product, but it seems to morph it into something slightly different and new, something definitely a bit more comedic and a bit larger than life.

    Jaw-dropping graphics, sound and gameplay herein combine and form a lone fabulous, must-have package.

    It's just so frickin' wild and cool. You can get whole forests to come to life and attack your enemies, build huge monsters like the Hydra (yes, it grows more heads as it takes damage), and pound the enemy city into a crater with meteor storms.

    • 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.

    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.

    The game has plenty of swearing, and lots of gore. I like running around nearly dead--you leave a big trail of red wherever you go. Ok, so maybe it is over the top, but at least somebody still has some cajones out there.

    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.

    Adds plenty to Diablo II, and not just a new episode. It actually changes the entire game from start to finish.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic shooter. The levels seem to be just right in length, have lots of enemies to gun down or evade, and the scripted events make the missions seem logical and important.

    What makes Frequency really special is the way it sinks its hooks in and challenges players to outdo themselves just one more time.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Everything that fans of AD&D have always wanted in a computer game. The only thing that will prevent it from being perfect for everyone is the very fact that it follows the AD&D rules so faithfully.

    I strangely feel a very strong maternal instinct towards my monkey (don't tell my children). I find myself telling him out loud what a good boy he is while rubbing his belly or explaining why I have to spank him.

    I think I keep saying this, but Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights is fun. And that's about what all these words you've just read amount to.

    If you want to get online and play action games against other people, Tribes Aerial Assault is a must. The consoles have never seen anything like it before.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A dangerously detailed and addictive experience for the power-mad behavioural researcher in all of us.
    • 86 Metascore

    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.

    Dungeon Siege is simple, and it is this simplicity that makes it an amazingly fun fantasy action RPG.

    It was a long wait for the sequel, but Pyro spent the time innovating a game that was already innovative to begin with. You're gonna love this one.

    Right from the opening strains of the song played in the opening movie, it's evident that Fallout 2 is going to be awesome. And it is. It perfectly recaptures what made the first so great.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Its mists, textures, particle blood sprays and lighting make it the best-looking shooter on the PlayStation 2, and maybe even a competitor for best-looking overall game.

    Stuntman has problems but it's unique and engrossing and definitely worth your time.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Simply a brilliant fighting game, and it seems that the best thing that ever happened to PlayStation 2 gamers
    • 86 Metascore

    The worlds and characters the designers have created here will charm your boots off.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A game for people who want a nice, long haul game, not a game that lasts a few bowls of chips. Such games risk repetitiveness and boredom, but Dark Cloud 2 stared these dragons down.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Grinding through the seven gigantic levels at snappy speeds, you'll quickly--and happily--realize the controls are tighter than Ebenezer Scrooge's rectum.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Above all else, this game is spooky, stylish and most importantly, fun from beginning to end.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 89 Metascore

    This top-down RPG is without a doubt the best PC RPG we have played in years. That's not an exaggeration. Years. I can't think of another game that comes even close to Fallout's excellent character generation and skill system, great story, and classy delivery.
