    Everything in Tony Hawk 2 is bigger, badder and most of all, better.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 98 Critic Score
    From the moment the title screens blinks on your television, to the time you finally force yourself to slap your dorsal fin on the "off" switch, you're bombarded with brilliance and visual splendor the likes we've haven't seen in ages.

    "Soul Calibur's"only detectable flaw... while professed SC masters may think that they can manhandle any selectable character, the ugly truth is that some of the game's characters are completely over- and under-powered.

    Sega's latest NAOMI-to-Dreamcast conversion excels in nearly all accounts, providing crisp visuals, strong gameplay and plenty of replay value--it's an ace all the way, and a game one would be foolhardy to pass up.

    Remodeled player models, higher resolution textures, even better lighting features all top the list of Dreamcast over PlayStation improvements.

    An improved running game, new player animations and--most importantly--online play, head the list of reasons why you must own this game!

    Even Sega fanboys like myself have to admit that when it comes to little details, Madden walks all over our beloved "NFL 2K1" like Nancy Sinatra in a pair of high heeled boots.

    The change in mood and the incredible new story are enough to rope anybody in for the easy thirty or more hours it will take to complete this worthy sequel.

    It's a game that's so amazing, if you don't own the system that plays it, you feel inclined to rectify the situation as soon as humanly possible.

    A knock-you-on-your-ass game that's so good it should be considered a felony not to own it.

    Quake 3 Arena is so damn good, scratch that, so damn near perfect, that it makes anybody who believes the future of gaming is not online look like a fool.

    Vagrant Story is that PlayStation title, the one all gamers have been waiting for, and one that's caused me to lose sleep, eat poorly (back to Chicken In A Bisket for me!) and shower on an irregular basis...all in the pursuit of gaming enlightenment.

    The graphics are amazing, the movies are great and the controls are simply fantastic -- "MDK 2" could be the front-runner for PC game of the year.

    In addition to the superb animation, the game sounds awesome... Its dirt bikes actually sound like the real thing--none of that high-pitched tin squeal you'll find in other sub-par racers.

    Good fun alone and an absolute riot in groups, you will have a tough time finding a music game that pleases like Sonic Team's colorful creation.

    The cream of the crop of online sports games and a must own addition to any Dreamcast owner's library.

    Besides bringing out the voyeur inside of me, I've found "The Sims" to be the most addictive and wholly enthralling game I've played in ages.
    • 93 Metascore

    Yet another intense racing experience that any fan of tire-melting action will worship.

    SSX
    A gorgeous snowboarder that gets its adrenaline from pulling off gravity-defying tricks, literally.

    With its refreshing design, cool music and engaging storyline, this game has to be one of the greatest RPGs that has ever exited the Squaresoft building.
    • 74 Metascore

    Virtually lag-free play, spot-on looks, and a tremendous amount of fun elevate 4x4 to the top of Dreamcast racers with little to no effort.

    With Joanna Dark, "Perfect Dark's" heroine, Rare succeeds over Bond, the spy at the top of his game, by matching him with somebody who would likely prefer him on the bottom.

    Not only one of the best racers on the Nintendo 64, but also one of the better kart racers in the last couple years.

    If you can get past the sometimes chugging on-screen action, and are just looking to have some good old fashion video game hockey fun, then NHL 2001 is just the game that will soak up your afternoons.

    The game play in this episode is so thought out and well-realized that I found myself actually discouraged that this would be Insomniac's last venture with the purple dragon.

    I, for one, will be giving multiple copies of Crash Bash and multi-taps to family and friends this holiday, and that alone should speak miles on just how addictive and fun this game can be in a multiplayer environment.
    • 77 Metascore

    A stunning example of unadulterated fun from yesteryear, tweaked only to take advantage of today's technology; the Nintendo 64 itself may age like vinegar, but the minds behind it continue to churn out fine wine.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Takes everything that was great about the first outing--the insane speed, the fantastic cast, the fun fighting engine, and the impressive pyrotechnics--and expands on every bit of it, without succumbing to the curse of most follow-ups: going overboard.

    I'll just put it this way: If you've been a Street Fighter fan for the past number of years, like myself, then "Street Fighter III: Double Impact" for the Dreamcast will be in your fighting collection, especially since you're getting two games in one.

    This version, "Bust-A-Move 4," almost makes it, but a few niggling shortcomings prevent it from wearing the "must-have" mantle.
