    Sure, its graphics are ugly, but its action is first-rate...It's one of those rare games in which almost everything is destructible. [Jan 2004, p.65]

    A console-friendly RTS that delivers lots of tactical action without the headaches of ports like "Commandos 2." [Sept 2003, p.59]

    All very clear cut stuff, but simplicity is a big part of the game's appeal. [Sept 2002, p.46]

    The best looking baseball game on the market. [August 2002, p.44]

    While its gameplay is neither fantastic nor bad, overall, it's a solid action-RPG that does a great job of capturing the phenomenon on which it's based. [July 2003, p.50]

    While Nemo is a short game overall, most of the levels are pretty fun, and I found myself repeating them to beat my playtimes and to win starfish, which open up minigames and concept art. [Aug 2003, p.29]

    • 75 Critic Score
    About as challenging as a wordsearch, but still fun for on-the-go gaming. [Jan 2003, p.48]

    Easily worth its weight in gold as a multiplayer game, though; the depth of the options available to you are staggering. [Nov 2002, p.70]

    You'll definitely get into it if you're into classic shooters, but if you've been reared in the modern era, it may simply be too frustrating. [Jan 2003, p.54]

    Cooperation is key. It's easier and faster to do everything with the help of other Sims. [Mar 2003, p.55]

    Since it uses the same engine as the GBA "Tony Hawk" games, the skaing and grinding action works very well. [July 2003, p.52]

    True RPG fans (like me) will eat this up. [Feb 2003, p.51]

    Forget about the old-school gameplay and squatty heroes of the original games - Twilight features expansive 3D worlds, cool anime-style characters, and radically reworked gameplay. [July 2003, p.57]

    The deeper I got into the game, however, the more I began to realize how little has changed in the Pokemon universe. [May 2003, p.39]

    My only real complaints are technical: The framerate is often unacceptably choppy and load screens pop up too frequently... Still one of PS2's best adventure games. [Dec 2003, p.64]

    Hardcore DDR fans will see the flaws, but DDRMAX2 is still a blast. [Nov 2003, p.52]

    Are you into horse racing? OK, then you'll absolutely go giddyap over GR03. Are you into racing games in general? Then you ought to give GR03 a test ride. [June 2003, p.50]

    There's an awful lot to play through, and regardless of any quirks, the thing caused me to have a damn good time whenever I picked up the joypad. [Jan 2003, p.46]

    Creepier than any of the earlier games, and as an exercise in horror, it's terrific. Just get ready for a high frustration factor. [Jan 2003, p.60]

    • 75 Critic Score
    The gameplay is really solid. It just doesn't feel like Splinter Cell, so calling it that seems a little misleading. [June 2003, p.42]

    • 75 Critic Score
    A pretty fun game, but it essentially ends ujp being more of the same. [Jan 2003, p.67]

    My biggest beef with the game is that it never really feels like your hits are connecting. [Dec 2002, p.64]
    • 64 Metascore

    The missions are somewhat predictable. [Apr 2003, p.50]
