    Delivers a burly extreme experience that doesn’t feel like it was cloned.
    • 67 Metascore

    It isn't the best open-world game out there, but it does a sublime job of capturing what it feels like to be the head of a virtual crime family. [Apr 2009, p.81]

    A no-holds-barred chariot racer full of originality and pee-in-your-pants combat.

    It's not perfect, but it's a polished, exciting ride.

    Brings more than just fierce punches and kicks -- it features an engaging story and plenty of gameplay modes that offer a high replay value. Hands down, this is one of the best PS2 games.

    One could possibly spend hours on end playing this game, as they obsessively upgrade their shops to unlock more things to buy, until eventually you monopolizing businesses the entire Tamagotchi Mall.

    Filled with enough chaos and wicked humor to forgive the slight reliance on platform clichés, Whiplash really is a hell of a game. With a little more polish before release, this game could have been a true masterpiece.

    One of the freshest, funniest car combat romps to date.

    Elements of Destruction can get a bit repetitive, mostly because you only have 3 elements at your disposal - a tsunami, flood, or avalanche wouldve been cool - but the enjoyment gamers get from laying waste to a wide variety of environments and EoD's oddball humor (Doc Herbert sending cows flying at a farm in Canada while singing the country's national anthem) more than makes up for its shortcomings.

    Fights are fast and furious, and there’s no shortage of splashy, flashy special effects.

    One of the most challenging match-your-fingers-to-the-onscreen-button-presses game since the sub-genre’s conception.
    • 64 Metascore

    An enticing blend of action and RPG adventure. The game mixes the best elements of both genres, resulting in a title that is just a hair away from greatness. Musashi may not be Zelda's equal, but it sure is close. [Apr 2005, p.84]

    Its slick style, amazing graphics, and dark atmosphere really make it stand out.

    The learning curve is gradual but the action starts from your first race and never lets up. Fans of racing games will like this title especially ones who want a little something more.

    The fighting world has a brand new and addictive style of gameplay. Kengo pays homage to an art form that's rarely seen, and plays as a well-crafted and fun experience that no fighting-game fan should miss.

    By delightfully melding combat and puzzle solving with solid pinball physics, Mario Pinball is not only the first pinball action/adventure game, but it's also a damn good one at that. [Nov 2004, p.130]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Played alone, against the computer, the game is barely worth popping out of its case. But, having even one other human opponent ups the fun exponentially--you just can't get the same satisfaction out of trash talking against a faceless computerized enemy.

    Straddles the line between arcade and simulation nicely. Players move, look, and behave in a realistic fashion, but fatigue, substitutions, and playcalling don’t interrupt the fun.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Aside from a few minor frustrations, this game is definitely one you should put some time into.

    Sector3 seems dedicated to supporting Fumes post-launch, so fans of physics-driven racers shouldn't hesitate to pick this one up.

    For the most part, though, Spyro is a graphics bonanza with blasts of color and eye-catching nuances, such as rippling water, glowing flames, and shimmering portals.

    Once you get the hang of the game engine and acquire better strike craft, the game becomes a very pleasurable experience. Ace Combat Advance is the perfect stopgap between an air-combat sim and an arcade top-down shooter.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfect port of the PC version of the third installment of the Myst trilogy, and nothing is lost in the translation.

    This game was meant to be played with four players instead of two, but considering how much fun you get for the price, you shouldn't be deterred from buying it.

    I'm usually not the biggest fan of shmups because of their often ridiculous difficulty, but AirAttack is pretty forgiving, and I feel that it'll appeal to a wider audience because of that.

    This is one of those horrifically addictive games that'll drain your battery and your free time faster than you realize, so only pick Deep Deep Dungeon up if you don't plan on accomplishing anything of importance in the near future.

    A steal. Seriously, this game is worth far more than a single dollar.

    This addictive side-scrolling shooter is a pitch-perfect port of an SNES classic, and works tremendously well on iOS devices.
