    SSX
    PS2 people, you have your first must-own title. With gameplay that takes the best bits of all the games which have come before it, SSX practically redefines snowboarding excitement.

    With smart A.I., great controls, and a take-no-prisoners approach to football, it should earn All-Pro status again...a straight-ahead, hard-as-knuckles football game.

    offers enough challenge and replay value to be a good party game for younger Star Wars fans.

    GT3’s razor-sharp handling means you’re always battling your opponents, not the controls. The force feedback and analog responsiveness are particularly impressive.

    With a creepy, excellent story and perfectly paced, complex action, Undying oozes freaky atmosphere.

    Of course, the game feels best when played with the PS2 controller. The Xbox and the GameCube are fine, too, but their button layouts force sometimes awkward finger stretching.

    The game looks incredible on a P4 2.7 GHz with a Radeon 9800 Pro, but still looks extremely impressive (and played wonderfully) on an Athlon 1.7GHz running a lowly GeForce 3.

    A must-have for all fighting-game fans, but its easy-going control is also ideal for the casual gamer who just wants to get a bit of aggression out and look good doing it.

    A truly dazzling, inspired game that mixes a riveting story with a stylish look and absorbing gameplay.

    Simultaneously increasing the realism of the experience of big mountain boarding and tearing the throat out of board-physics as we know it, SSX 3 completely revolutionizes the snowboardercross concept.

    It sucks you into its weird world and doesn't let you go.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It speaks like no other game in the genre, loud and with feeling, and tells a story worth telling among all the explosions.

    A sports gamer's dream come true. The potent combination of smooth fast graphics, excellent gameplay options, and a tough as nails AI, makes this hockey game king of the rink.

    Totally revamped from the ground up, and it shows. Great graphics and the best gameplay the series has seen in years.

    Cheesy voice-acting by minor characters is the only real flaw here.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Excellent controls deliver a highly responsive feel and a huge roster of cool moves, including a new defensive ball swat.

    It's the best version of one of the best 3D platform games ever made.

    Compared to D2D, "Thunder's" cars don't handle as smoothly and its Career mode is heavy on complexity and short on fun. [Dec 2002, p.194]

    Its brilliance is in a seamless and convincing storytelling that begins with the opening cinematic and never stops unfolding, developing, and engaging. With each new expansion, each contact, crisis, and step closer to ultimate resolution, Alpha Centauri is a hell of a yarn.
    • 89 Metascore

    Unmatched in its field thanks to major improvements in every category combined with a deeply rewarding simulation experience.
    • 85 Metascore

    While Hot Shots 3 doesn’t revolutionize the series by any stretch of the imagination, it delivers sweet PS2 graphics and loads of slick refinements that make it another must-play game.

    Whether you've played the original or not, Freespace 2 takes its place among the greatest space-flight sims of all-time.

    The levels are not only more interactive, but they're also enormous - much larger than those from "THPS3." [Nov 2002, p.50]

    A masterpiece of epic proportions, the "Saving Private Ryan" of first-person shooters.

    Never has a game gripped my attention so completely, it was able to throw me from my chair while trying to dodge an attack, lean forward to be one inch from the screen, or throw my mouse off the table in an effort to get away from an enemy.

    The way things fly, catch fire, and fall not only carries consequences that add weight to your war of the worlds, but also creates situations that reward guile, guts, and instinct... Everything about Half-Life 2 is remarkable.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Not only the proverbial sequel-better-than-its-original, but it’s also deep, challenging, and intelligent on a level that action games usually don’t reach.

    Surprise, surprise —UT 2004 looks absolutely fantastic. From the sprawling battlefields to the tiny blades of alien grass, there’s not one visual detail that looks less than stunning.

    Like a new year’s line of automobiles, Onimusha 2 has a sleeker look, more bells and whistles, and improved standard features over its predecessor model, "Warlords."
    • 82 Metascore

    A rock ‘n’ rollin’, wrist-snapping slug of adrenaline on four-wheels that challenges you at every turn.
