    The game combines elements like the RPG-leveling system from Fire Emblem, the "zone of control" mechanism from Military Madness, and Advance Wars-style terrain bonuses and village capturing to create a game that's incredibly deep and satisfying for those experienced with the strategy genre.

    Turismo rockets to the top with unbelievable depth, raucous arcade action, challenging sim gameplay, and more cars than a mall parking lot. It’s worth every penny.

    A deeply rewarding simulation experience... Once again, the Xbox version has the best overall effects and looks the sexiest.

    The controls are dead-on perfect, but somewhere along the way, someone forgot to take advantage of the PlayStation 2’s processing power—something that’s readily apparent in the sights and sounds.

    Has it all—Spider-Man not only looks, sounds, and plays remarkably well, but it also places you firmly in the comic-book world of its hero.

    The bar for online gaming has not so much been raised as obliterated. For once, a game lives up to its expectations.

    The overall attention in the Secret Armory is impressive, and the quirks that made the main game so memorable are definitely present here.

    It's all about presentation, and Jak 3 presents the action in an engaging, meaningful way that keeps you glued to the very end. [Dec 2004, p.100]

    This year, the design guys as Visual Concepts have turned ESPN NFL 2K5 into the most entertaining show in video-game football. [Sept 2004, p.98]

    This is the breakout, must-buy hit that WiiWare needed to justify its existence. LostWinds is a beautiful and unique exploration-based platformer that takes full and natural advantage of the Wii's control setup.

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

    This is Grand Theft Auto the way you love it: all of the innovation, charm and thrills from its past installations neatly tied together in a creative package worthy of any DS owner.

    Intensively addictive. The battles are lightning-fast, the controls are completely stress-free, and there’s still something primordially fun about filling up those Pokédex pages.

    Whether you’re a hyperactive kid, an inebriated adult, or just someone who doesn’t have any hangups about looking a little goofy to have a good time, the EyeToy will make you smile for the camera.

    The key to Twilight Princess' genius lies in its ability to evoke, and fulfill, a feeling of nostalgia, to return you to the bygone days when you first played a Zelda game.

    Other baseball games might have a more unique feature or two, and several absolutely have better graphics, but only High Heat delivers such consistently riveting gameplay.

    Boktai couldn't have been done on any other system; it is uniquely Game Boy Advance, yet not at all like any of its other titles. A paradox, a conundrum, and creativity incarnate.
    • 90 Metascore

    There are no branching pathways or mulitiple endings, but if you're looking for a rip-roaring adventure, you can't go wrong.

    If looks could kill, DOA4 would be called Murderer's Row. This game is beautiful; even while you're beating the tar out of your opponent, you'll notice that your surroundings are among the finest you've seen in any fighting game... Hands down the best installment in the series. [Jan 2006, p.38]

    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.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Without a doubt the best looking fighting game ever, with nuances like muscle rippling, facial expressions of pain, fear, and anger, and caustic lighting effects that dazzle the eyes.

    Sparkle might be a copycat, but it's also a fantastic game.

    A prime lesson on simple yet addictive gameplay with awe-inspiring visuals—a blend that no gamer should miss.

    Visually, the game is just beautiful—the eye-popping lighting in particular is remarkable. The audio also shines.

    Visually, MP 2's dazzling, organic-looking environments represent a quantum leap for console-based shooters.

    A freakin' work of art. It is, without a doubt, the best-looking console game to date, and the most psychotically intense World War II shooter to boot.
    • 92 Metascore

    WarCraft III doesn’t revolutionize the RTS genre, but a well-executed story, drum-tight gameplay and a long shelf life as a multi-player title make WarCraft III a must for and PC owning strategy fans.

    The graphics are among the best to ever grace the Game Boy screen, a vibrant canvas decorated in brilliant crayon and eye-popping pastels-Yoshi's Island is a veritable work of art.

    This immersive sci-fi epic delivers both an expansive story and electrifying first-person combat, making it one of 2001's best games.

    The gameplay in March Madness is nearly identical to that of its big brother "NBA Live 2004," which is a big plus. The frantic pace, the tighter defense, and the importance of set plays is actually a much better fit for the college game than it is for Live.
