    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.

    A silky smooth wonder. The absolute freedom that can be yours in this game is unprecedented. With a large screen television and proper stereo amplification, Pilot Wings 64 truly takes us where no console game has ever gone before.

    If you have an N64 and you by some freak of causal virtue haven't been exposed to the grim, visceral cosmology that is Resident Evil, I urge you to check out Resident Evil 2. The N64 port holds up in stellar form, and it's packed with moments both atmospherically spooky and downright drop-the-controller scary.

    Don't pass up Robotron 64. Even if you are too young to remember the original, you're still not likely to find a N64 game with this kind of blessed simplicity ever again. This is one those "gotta beat my last score" kind of games that you'll be able to pull off the shelf and enjoy for the rest of your videogaming career.

    Turok's flashy stuff notwithstanding, it is the game's incredibly rich and complex level construction and enemy AI that will keep your heart pounding and the sweat beading until the very end.

    Nobody has developed a perfect basketball sim. Visual Concepts however has come the closest with NBA 2K2. By far this is the best hoops title on the market today.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Aside from the talented AI, there are a lot more impressive game features. One of the first things to come to mind is the incredibly deep playbook and coverage set.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    A pleasing solo affair mixed with remarkable multiplayer support once again more than cements id Software's status as the premiere name in first-person shooters.

    Halo has the best control of any console shooter I've ever played.

    It has the obsessive quality. This one goes beyond simple addiction. If you get into it, you will probably REALLY get into it, and want to want to redo the game until you’ve completely dominated it.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A thoroughly enjoyable simulation that is refreshingly different compared to the cavalcade of action, strategy and RPGs cluttering the marketplace today.
    • 84 Metascore

    You hardcore adventurers already love it, and you newbies out there are in for a real treat, and you are to be envied.

    If there is any down side to it at all it’s that there won’t be a "Baldur’s Gate III" and I will sorely miss my player character with whom I have shared such a wonderful adventure over the last three years.

    If you love the Looney Tune cartoons, you will love each level of this game.

    Though an exceedingly fun and rewarding game, NBA Street isn't very original or particularly noteworthy.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Earth not only plays great, it respects the feel of history and advancement, and by its very nature makes the player respect it too.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The game adds enough new missions, locations, structures, weapons and units to justify the purchase and will likely keep you clicking away feverishly until the wee hours of the morn.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    But in the end, this fantastic engine and solid concept is hobbled by routine shooter gameplay.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Despite a high level of difficulty, the game is proof positive that the original PlayStation still has plenty of life left within.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Its pulp-novel story, gunfights straight out of John Woo's head, the incredibly cool Bullet Time gimmick, graphics that will stun the most jaded gamer.

    It's weird, wonderful, addictive and groovin'.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Aside from these minor graphical niggles, the game does look mightily beautiful and plays smooth as glass, even in splitscreen multiplayer mode.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The on-screen skaters control well, but not quite as tightly as the PS2 version of the game. There is a bit more play in this version, with the end result being a control scheme that is slightly looser than one might expect.

    • 86 Critic Score
    It rocks, despite some small flaws. Good replay value can make a game go a long way.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This time the settings are richer and the environment is fuller and he's got help.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Puts its aging competition to shame with its polished visuals and offers a challenging, though sometimes frustrating, single-player experience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The game really has the Trek flavour pegged...Bridge Commander's sore spot is that mission structure is not nearly as open-ended as it could be.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you are patient, willing to work on developing an online gaming community, and looking to play a well-designed, team-based first person shooter Global Operations is the perfect fit.

    All it needs for 2002 is the ability to start a riot and you won’t be able to tell it from the real thing.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It gets hefty points for not being just a "prettified" version of the one available for PlayStation, N64 and Dreamcast.
