    An action-packed espionage thriller, Syphon Filter’s intense gameplay combines with tight control and a slick style to deliver the PlayStation’s best third-person action game.

    In order to outshine Tekken 3, a game will need to have a ton of moves (T3 has over 100 per character), multi-hit combos (all T3 fighters can pull off 10-hitters), outstanding graphics (T3 has no breakup on the fighters, no "blind spots" where clipping occurs, and no slowdown), and seamless gameplay that includes juggles, counters, and linking moves.

    Fun, addictive, and exciting -- you couldn't ask for more in a game. Tony Hawk may not have the graphic flair of the Dreamcast, but it goes to prove that looks aren't everything.

    • 100 Critic Score
    If you have something you need to get done right now, a paper, a report, just hold off on buying this game until you're finished because other tasks don't stand a chance when playing THPS2 is an option.

    Practice makes perfect, and Wipeout makes you scream. [The control] takes some time, but you'll be able to corner hairpins faster than a debutante on prom night.

    Its unique modern-day setting along with terrific characters and a dark story make Persona 2 an engaging game from start to finish. It's truly a must for serious RPG fans.

    It's classic side-scrolling action like it was originally designed to be played. The two selectable characters and brain-spraining puzzles mean you'll get more than your money's worth in replay value.

    NHL 2001 takes this year's PlayStation Championship (against Sony's "FaceOff"), but it was a tight seven game showdown.

    If you want a game that's more tailored to individual play rather than team cooperation, then NBA Live is a great choice.

    With sharp new features, graphics, and controls, Knockout Kings 2001 owns the PlayStation boxing ring.

    "Final Fantasy IV" is an outstanding and epic work that impresses despite its advanced age...Although the visual and audio aspects have aged poorly, "Chrono Trigger" is nevertheless an invaluable offering to its genre.

    Even restrained by the PlayStation’s limited horsepower, the player models look reasonably good, and they move incredibly smoothly and with lifelike realism.

    Graphically, Dino Crisis 2 boasts some of the best work the old PS will ever have to offer, with great CG flowing near seamlessly into the action the player controls.

    It's one of the best games to come out for the PlayStation in 2000.
    • 92 Metascore

    It's large, it's intense, it's huge, and it looks and sounds great. Vagrant Story is a true classic action/RPG in every sense that will hook you in from the start and never let go.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Another masterpiece from DreamWorks and EA. Captivating graphics and sound combine with relentless, addictive action to deliver one of the year's best games.

    Overall, Super Circuit handles like a front-runner, but sometimes the windshield needs cleaning.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Set against a myriad of beautifully rendered 2D environments, the detailed visuals convey a feeling of dread.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A huge, fantastic, creative, and wickedly fun RPG that doesn't seem to care that it's "just" on a GBA. It's easily the best RPG available for the GBA-and may just be the best RPG for any console system this year.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Blazing fast speeds with sharp graphics, pulsating sounds and good controls.

    • 82 Metascore

    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.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's a must-have for the Game Boy Advance, and proof positive that great game design transcends technology and time.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    So good that it will easily make diehard pocket fighters forget all about the great genre titles on the short-lived Neo Geo Pocket Color.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Portable and pure, Namco Museum is an old-school must-own.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    An inexplicably rewarding, utterly bizarre, and impossible-to-put-down battery-sucking gem that feels like it was born to live on the Game Boy Advance.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    In the realm of today’s high-powered next-gen role-players, BOFII is an excellent time-killer—not to mention one of the better entries in the series.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A thoughtful, huge, rewarding classic.
