    The wonky physics and a slightly limited variety of custom parts keep this one from a higher score, but Xbox owners looking to inject some originality into their racing experience would do well to check out Apex's unique approach to a somewhat stale genre.

    While not ground breaking in the graphics department the addition of psychic powers to your arsenal not only provides for some excellent new forms of combat it also provides for a great source of replay value.

    The perfect balance of non-linear gameplay and plot development, the game offers a unique experience that successfully evolves the gameplay of the original.

    A large and varied weapons arsenal, as well as vehicular-based play, makes XMP fun to play; however, its apparent influence from other games limits its originality and future playability.

    Its gameplay is solid while it still holds true to the original Tetris concept and is addictively fun.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most interesting and odd games that I have played in recent years.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gameplay is solid, fun, and addictive. On the other hand, graphics-though they are fresh-could have been better.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The new team system hastens gameplay a little more than past installments and offers a blend of elements from action to platform at the press of a button.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It has the longest lasting appeal of perhaps any sports title available, thanks to the outstanding dynasty mode and the great multiplayer modes.

    Where Dead to Rights really comes into its own is gameplay.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Past the technical issues and bland combat system is a universe that’s worth exploring.

    The real fun of this game, of course, is playing online (or networked) multiplayer games. Be warned; heed the system requirements. Otherwise, this game is unplayable both online and offline.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    The only problems were with the interfaces, which get confusing and messy, kind of like my desk, so I guess that is a little too realistic.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    A bit of a disappointment. I was expecting a little more action in the adventure, but it did come through when it came to the beauty and sound of the game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It's a good idea for a story but it has been overdone to death.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Overall, the game is clean and reminds me of the old "Pacific Strike" from Origin, though more playable and it doesn't crash my computer.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It truly is a fun game and the new campaign is a great new addition and makes for a whole different game.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The ability to develop individual units, in addition to a central lord, makes the game an attractive offering for those seeking compensation for their gameplay efforts.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The game looks nice, plays nice and is a blast if you can stand getting through the first few missions.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    In every respect besides multiplayer, Clancy’s Ghosts eliminate those damn pansy SEALs across the board.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Though there are certainly better options to be found on the PC platform, PS2 owners who can stomach the repetitive combat (not to mention the $9.95 monthly fee), have an extra USB keyboard and a healthy chunk of free time laying around, and want a solidly designed introduction to the MMORPG craze could do worse than to give Evercracka spin.

    The lack of text chat capabilities and a workable inventory system prevent Tribes from greatness.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Engaging gameplay full of intriguing gadgets and weaponry, a tightly-wound story, and intricate stealth-action. Unfortunately, there are a few problems with the game, mostly graphically, as the framerate varies, unlike the detail, which is consistently mediocre.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    With an improved control scheme and fluid action, the game fixes the problems plaguing the first title. Unfortunately, the action is broken up by unnecessary and frustrating platform challenges forced upon by linear level design.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    I recommend it to those out there who need these heroic kinds of games, because being a hero is definitely what this game is all about.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A blast to play for those who enjoy strategic and realistic games, and is one of the first of its kind on the Xbox... [but it] does host an array of problems including dull and uninspired graphics, atrocious lag in multiplayer, and some diminishing gameplay design flaws.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Could have been great, but has to settle for being good because of the annoying camera issues and the graphics shortcomings.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Despite its incredible presentation, the game suffers from intense button mashing and the lack of an announcer. The season mode has been implemented better than any wrestling game I have played making WWE Raw 2 one of the best wresting games to date.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Its aspects of action, while moderately engaging, are wholly unbalanced; in addition, the elements of strategy are watered-down for ease of play. Nevertheless, Wrath Unleashed plays much better as a multiplayer game.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Manhunt attempts to combine excessive violence with stealth-action gameplay, but fails to invoke a sense of value and worth in play.
