    The coolest addition is the ability to raise more than one monster at once, adding a level of strategy to picking the monster you enter in a particular competition. [Jan 2004, p.60]

    GTA's still king, but True Crime: Streets of L.A. rocks the spot. [Jan 2004, p.60]

    The game doesn't last that long, but you'll be constantly entertained. [June 2002, p.60]

    The collest part of AC2 is the monthly episode update. [Feb 2003, p.49]
    • 84 Metascore

    Intense. [Dec 2002, p.63]
    • 89 Metascore

    While AoM sports the best single-player campaign in any "Age" game, it's still no award-winner. [Jan 2003, p.66]
    • 81 Metascore

    Strikes a near perfect balance of fun and realism, and it should be on any baseball fan's must-try list. [May 2003, p.50]

    Other than the lackluster practice mode, everything in FIFA 2004 is spot-on.

    The most beautiful MMORPG currently available. Its environments are second to none, and the character models are elegant and, frankly, a pleasure to behold. The world also feels more alive than any other.

    • 83 Critic Score
    More than any strategy game I've played, DT2 forces you to think five moves ahead at all times. [Nov 2003, p.52]

    Raster productions has done an excellent port of the single-player missions from both the Xbox and PC versions of RTCW. [Aug 2003, p.35]

    If Ratchet had more personality, this game might've been more fun. [Dec 2002, p.68]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Other than the lame enemy A.I. and the sometimes wacky camera, the major downside to Clock Tower 3 is its short playtime. But it's very fun while it lasts. [May 2003, p.46]
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The biggest change - the flattening of "Frequency's" cylindrical play field - ends up as more of a curse than a blessing. [May 2003, p.49]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    What I like most about The Hulk is the fact that the Hulk plays the way you'd expect him to. [July 2003, p.53]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    May be the best directly movie-based title I've ever played. [Jan 20003, p.42]
    • 72 Metascore

    • 83 Critic Score
    Apart from the minute-to-minute madness, Chaos Legion rocks a pretty cool amount of depth. [July 2003, p.56]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    I wish I had played [it] before I played "Gallop Racer." In almost every regard, G1 is a superior product with much more depth and sophistication. [July 2003, p.59]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The drawing system is brilliant - simple sketches transform with ease into wonderfully animated creatures. [June 2003, p.50]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The game plays out like an extended TV episode in which you have to solve a great mystery - only this mystery gets solved mostly with guns and ammo. [Sept 2003, p.63]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Among the fastest and most intricate 2D fighting games in existence. [Mar 2003, p.48]

    A great online game. [Dec 2002, p.76]
    • 79 Metascore

    If you like strategy, but don't want something super hardcore (like say "Dynasty Tactics 2"), this is your game. [Nov 2003, p.53]
