    For right now I would only recommend a purchase to somebody who doesn’t become easily bored by the same course over and over again.

    Rumble Racing really is all about pin-your-noggin-to-the-headrest-and-flatten-your-cheeks speed.

    • 85 Critic Score
    A textbook example to other console developers on how to write videogame prose.

    It does have some issues, like the damage modeling, that keep it from being the ultimate hardcore simulation, but as a challenging arcade game this one certainly deserves a test drive.

    The great thing about MX 2002 is that it combines both of these kinds of gameplay--competitive racing and freestyle tricks--and does them both well.
    • 59 Metascore

    Dripping with looks.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Worth getting for the bizarre "commercials" that play when the credits roll, or when you're in the network waiting area looking for opponents.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you are looking for the most authentic title on the market, then this is it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    While not as spooky as a "Resident Evil," there is still a good enough atmosphere to keep gamers at the edge of their chairs.

    The game world is huge and the developers have done a wonderful job of making each area in the game very unique. I am constantly looking forward to visiting a new zone and discovering new adventures.

    Compelling and long-lasting.

    A much bigger oversight is the removal of the PlayStation’s split-screen multiplay in favor of a LAN-based multiplayer mode.

    • 85 Critic Score
    I wouldn't go so far as to call it quite the revolution it could have been, but it comes close. And in the world of action/stealth/strategy games, the series still has no equal.

    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the most beautiful, thought-provoking games I've ever played.

    For pick-up-and-play fun, NBA Live 2003 simply can not be beat.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the best action-movie games on any platform. Some frustrating camera placement and a save-game that takes some getting used to take very little away from the excellent sneak-and-peek gameplay.

    SSX
    Unless you’re expecting a true snowboarding game, it is hard to be disappointed with SSX.

    Aside from the so-so visuals, High Heat Baseball is the coolest baseball game on the market. If you are looking for life-like action and real baseball strategy, this is the title for you.

    Lends itself much better to multiplayer adventuring as there is no central character and, more importantly, the dialogue trees are kept to a minimum while the exploration and adventure are maxxed out.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A pleasant and exciting surprise.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is one of the “must have” launch titles. You won’t be disappointed.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the best looking, and surely the smoothest-playing 3D RTS (actually, RTT) games currently available for the PC.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is a well-done game and is very addictive but everything is just too flat.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Solid and extremely stylish (if unrevolutionary) RTS gaming.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    For what it is, a fast hack ’n’ slash, GDL is a great game. If you’re looking for an action RPG, this ain’t it.

    Like its predecessor, Thief II is subtle, deep and refined, words associated with the action game genre about as often as they are with fraternity hazing rituals.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A sublime, turn-based, empire-building, strategy game. At the same time, I can't help but feel like I have played it before.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is the game for real basketball fans to get.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Perhaps the best party game for the PS2 out there.

    Graphically, FreeSpace 2 is absolutely stunning.
