    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.

    Its gameplay is solid while it still holds true to the original Tetris concept and is addictively fun.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though the weak storyline, too-easy-for-its-own-good firing controls, and a few other small errors take away from the game's fun, and keep it from being a truly great game, it still isn't enough to take down the solid gameplay complemented by the game's unique transforming ideas.

    Excellent controls and a streamlined interface make playing a breeze on the smaller system. Unfortunately, the game lacks the variety and length of gameplay that its big brother has.

    What’s the point of eliminating wave after wave of identical baddie if you can’t even buy anything worthwhile with the credits earned? My advice: keep your hard earned credits and use them to put a bounty on the head of the poor schlup that implemented the moronic money system.

    Adds some needed worldly interaction into The Sims, which is a welcome addition to the game.

    Rally Trophy claims to be the only Rally racing game based on historic automobiles… So What!?! Historic or not, they are still just tools used to get around the same old boring tracks.

    A remarkable turn-around, MLB 2005 manages to combine depth of play with ease of control for a solid baseball title that stands out against the competition.
    • 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.

    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.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Past the technical issues and bland combat system is a universe that’s worth exploring.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A fun smash-everything experience with slick controls and fast, furious gameplay, and it will leave action fans satisfied. However, due to its short lifespan and repetitive nature, it is really a game more suited for rental than purchase.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    In every respect besides multiplayer, Clancy’s Ghosts eliminate those damn pansy SEALs across the board.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Graphics were great and were perhaps the best aspect of the title, all except for those arthritis-like frame-rates.
    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A great game if all you're looking for is some TIE-blasting and AT-tripping fun. Having said that, innovation is not this game's strong suit. The new content, mainly the on-foot missions, only serve to detract from the rest.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A fast-paced snowboarding game with good looking graphics and outstanding course design. The time trial and gate challenge are both highly addicted modes, but the trick attack I found to be rather useless.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The game is not incredibly long but still should take about 10-12 hours to beat the first time through.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
