    Despite minor qualms with the controls and the bosses, the game truly is a masterpiece and is one of the best ever in my mind.

    The random beatings you can inflict on people always makes for a good laugh when you’re with friends, and the versatility of this game provides you with the best of all worlds.

    It is an inexcusable fact that "OoT" had almost twice as many dungeons, considering it came out so long ago. The dungeons are the most fun aspect of the game and you will be left wishing for more. Also, with fewer dungeons come fewer bosses.

    By far the best sequel I've ever played.

    A larger and spicier serving of GTA3 with some minor, though beneficial, trimmings.

    While Mario has aged well, A Link to the Past feels a little old. Unlike other GBA ports, the game definitely shows its age graphically, especially when compared to Four Swords.

    Smooth gameplay, great graphics, quick load times...it has it all.

    Overall, it’s just "Super Mario 3," but that’s like saying it’s just a Lamborghini Diablo. This is the cream of the crop of almost all games, and to have your own copy to go with you wherever you go is worth the money for the game.

    An experience that is concurrently Star Wars and something else. KOTOR is not simply another franchise-supported derivative; it stands as an original vision, independently justified - an RPG for the masses and the few.

    With the depth of its franchise mode and the abundance of game modes, Madden 2004 has loads of replay value that you will treasure.

    A great game. Pretty graphics. Sweet tunes. Killer gameplay. Exclusive online competition. So damn good.

    An exceptional game, and promises to only get better from here. With only a few small repairs, this game could be the greatest to date.

    One of the greatest games of all time. Splinter Cell redefines what a game should look, play, and sound like. Perhaps most amazing is not that the graphics, gameplay, and sound are so good, but that they all blend together to form a whole so well.

    Brings back the old-school 2D brawler style with plenty of innovation and plenty of depth to keep the most hardcore gamers jaws dropped for hours on end.

    • 98 Critic Score
    With such a diverse assortment of characters in the game, its shocking that 99% of the gameplay is ridden of cheap moves and attacks, graphical flaws, poor sound quality, etc; perfect as you would call it.

    NFL2K3 has everything a football gamer could want. It has great graphics easy and intuitive controls, and the gameplay is extremely fun.

    If you play through it three times, you get a super ending, which is a nice incentive.

    The finest RTS game I have ever played.

    Luring the entire neighbourhood into my house then sealing the doors and removing the food and toilet is just one of the many indignities I have visited to those under my care.

    Nearly flawless, Advance Wars is the most challenging, deep, and interesting handheld title available.

    • 93 Critic Score
    The creators of the game must have had an affinity for the art of suspense because this game was a thriller all the way through. Top it all off with absolutely wonderful gameplay, be it puzzles or action, and you have the masterpiece that is System Shock 2.

    If your favorite RPG character was the rogue, your favorite hero a thief, or your favorite game as a child hide-n-go-seek, without a moment's hesitation go buy this game.

    I really haven't had a game get me so fired up in a while, and this one seems to be one that I couldn't go wrong with. If you were a fan of the original AoE, then you're probably going to love this sequel.

    A remarkable game blending the groundbreaking adventure elements the series is known for, with intense action, enthralling storytelling, and beautiful visuals and audio.

    A new generation, looking a lot prettier, playing a lot smoother, and sounding a lot better, but with very little innovation.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The unoriginality in unit appearance kind of killed the game for me and the good soundtrack that overshadows the game can get on your last nerve depending on how long you've been playing. It just continually loops.

    What makes MF fun to play is its intelligent design.

    One of the best sports games to hit the PC this year. While many of the hockey or football games have better graphics and improved gameplay, Tiger Woods 2003 is a whole new experience in itself.
    • 91 Metascore

    Another problem that I found with the audio was that the voices of soldiers and prisoners did not match up at all with the movement of their mouths.

    Takes stealth gameplay to the next level with unbelievable open-ended stealth gameplay coupled with gorgeous graphics, grim high-quality voice acting, and ambient music to always keep you on the edge.
