    • 80 Critic Score
    The intense strategic gameplay alone makes it one of the better RTS titles released in recent years.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It features a tighter back story, a more streamlined and interactive combat model, the ability to play the game the way you want to play, and best of all, does so in an easy to understand, even friendly manner.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's one of the best sports games on the PS2, and it's definitely the best college game around.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although the game has a story, plot has never been the strong point of any platformer. In the case of "Klonoa" it's more saccharine than usual and indulges in the same plodding mumbo-jumbo found in console RPGs.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The gameplay is surprisingly tight.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the graphics aren't especially mind-blowing, they complement the game's overall feel and make the unbelievable story that much more appealing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While there's room for improvement in terms of graphics and sound, it easily makes up for it in realism.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of those rare titles that benefit from being played loud. All the background noise (or lack thereof) will play with your mind to the point that you'll be taking frequent breaks to collect yourself.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great flight sim that won't bog you down with complex controls.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not only adds more stuff to the Sims canon, it improves and more importantly expands the game in subtle but far-reaching ways.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The latest version of EA's yearly hit isn't the quantum leap ahead of last year's, but it's improved enough to keep it at the top, drinking from the virtual Cup.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Mission objectives are varied and quite satisfying, the graphics shine, and tons of replay value is provided.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not cutting-edge, but this gritty, violent, and incredibly dark adventure into the occult is just the thing for horror fans looking for something smart and very off beat.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A perfect complement to Maximo's music is its sound effects. Everything from sword and shield clashes to more subtle ambient noises are excellent.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the gameplay is still overly derivative of games like "Colony Wars" and "Wing Commander," and doesn't quite capture the "Star Wars" feel in the same way the "Rogue Squadron" games do, it's a massive step in the right direction.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Disgaea's loose, unorthodox gameplay, plus its tongue-in-cheek attitude, is just what the genre needs.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It has enough useful, new features to make it a worthy addition to the family, including the tremendous inclusion of Internet play and a fully fleshed-out career mode.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It blends the genre lines seamlessly in a fast-paced game that is both fun and challenging. The new story line and gameplay improvements will appeal to fans of the original and it also does a good job of bringing newcomers up to speed.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    From the moment DMX's "Party Up" plays in the background, you'll realize this is not your father's golf game. The action is fast, the commentary is rife with dry humor, and the desire to personalize your character is too good to pass up.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gamers looking for a vast, expansive trick system like the one in the "Tony Hawk" games might find their wings clipped in Downhill Domination, but the responsive physics and no-rules mayhem work surprisingly well. It's fast -- perhaps a little too fast.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though there are a few interface and gameplay quirks, "Shadow Magic" is immensely satisfying. Whether you're new to these games or a grizzled veteran, Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic"will keep you playing late into the night.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Painkiller is pure adrenaline. If you don't feel the rush while playing this game, you're probably dead.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One word of warning--if you’re only interesting in running around and shooting bad guys stay far, far away from this game. It’s impossible to run through this game like Rambo. You will die.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With some weapons, like the sniper rifle, you can't move at all if it's equipped. This is all the more frustrating after playing games like "Splinter Cell" where it's pulled off with aplomb.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Once you have access to multiple Forges (they're connected by magic portals), it's easy to get lost in the endless curving hallways.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With the lack of an online death match mode, playing cooperative missions via EA Online (only in the PlayStation 2 version) turns out to be the jewel in EoN's crown. For gamers and Bond fans, this is infinitely superior to nothing.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Really a nice game that continues to surprise and delight the more you play.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It offers up some solid improvement but doesn't stray too far from what made it so loved to begin with. It's not the groundbreaking title that the original was, but it's an excellent follow-up that delivers as promised.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even though it lacks the cooperative multiplayer feature, Halo: Combat Evolved retains the sharp graphics, heated action, and vehicle-based exploration that made the original such an awesome game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Certainly the most mature and well-balanced of Goodman's titles, and it succeeds more often than not.
