    The thrill of careening around turns surrounded by dozens of competitors? Check. A great simulation of the long road to victory? Check. Spectacularly destructive wipeouts? Check, just no fire.

    Rides the line between story and "freedom" well.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The customizable difficulty settings make for an entertaining arcade racer, while the detailed career mode and tuning garage give gearheads plenty to tinker with. Ratbag has produced another outstanding sprint car simulator.

    Factor in the ability to play the Summer Leagues and NBDL, and the game's shortcomings seem minimal.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An accurate F1 simulation while remaining accessible to the more laid-back player. However, it's still more a simulation than an arcadelike racing game.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The new single-player levels are challenging without being impossible and break new gameplay ground without abandoning the things that made the original great.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    So the engine is clunky and the pathfinding is bad. Ultimately that doesn't matter much. This is a great RPG.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Crashing through flaming glass hoops while pulling off death-defying aerial stunts at 98 mph makes it a hard game to turn off once you've perfected it, and a thoroughly addictive two-player mode will help you get there.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's insanely gorgeous... Beautiful graphics, fantastically designed maps, and slight changes in gameplay.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Taken together, the new touches are nice, but the graphics are one area where SOCOM II can't yet compete with its PC cousins.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A well-crafted game that's strictly for those who get off on blood, nastiness, and the darker side of the psyche. You know who you are.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Makes for surreal fun with a strangely addictive quality, and, if anything, it has seemingly endless potential. Like the stand-alone versions of the game, The Sims Online is what you make of it.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An invaluable addition to an already great game. The driving missions are a fun and sometimes useful diversion. But the real winner here is how you can more easily deal with their traffic problems.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the structure and sidequests are a little too hard core and not as good as we would've hoped for in the first true "Final Fantasy" sequel, Final Fantasy X-2 is a great game nonetheless.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Crowded races and difficult tracks unforgiving of the smallest mistake require dedication, concentration, high-end equipment, and lots of practice. Aside from these barriers to entry, NASCAR Racing 2003 Season looks and plays beautifully.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you can ignore the acting or enjoy it for camp, the rest of Gothic II is an incredible experience.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good and stylish mix of the factual and the fanciful.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An undeniably polished game. It will offer you months and months of new things to do and experience.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An incredibly attractive game with a vast world to explore and countless hours of entertainment in store for those willing to make the investment. But we warn you: those who venture to Vana'diel may not be coming back.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While Final Fantasy XI doesn't currently offer quite as much variety and depth as competing games --especially on the PC -- its superb graphics, sound, and dedicated community make it a match for the competition.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The level of player interaction and attention to detail rivals that of "Morrowind" and easily surpasses the "Baldur's Gate" series.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Anyone looking for a great hack-and-slash adventure will be more than satisfied with Onimusha 2. You still have to put up with funky camera angles, but the overall control is more than sufficient to get you though this 10-hour-plus trek.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the more interesting and entertaining strategy titles to come along in quite some time.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Precisely more of the same. It's bigger, stronger, and deeper. Even the flaws are repeated, as party members still need a lot of hand-holding.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The inclusion of online racing and the frenetic pace of the races will leave players with a dirt-eating grin.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Immediate enough to attract casual hockey fans, or even those who don't care for or know anything about the sport. It also provides a deep level of simulation and customization for those who know and love their hockey.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Quick, responsive controls do well to round out the positives here, but the time spent refining the countering-a-grapple system make Shut Your Mouth considerably more balanced and playable than some previous installments.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    For Potter fans of all ages, Chamber of Secrets is a must-have.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A wonderful year-end treat that offers ingenious level design and a ton of gameplay.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a real treat to see footage of the original arcade Defender and listen to the thoughts of the man behind it and of the folks responsible for the new one.
