    This is one instance where a lot of appeal and a sizable dose of flash and panache can make up for some simplistic control and unimpressive depth enhancements.

    • 75 Critic Score
    Without the camera's awkward behavior and minor flaws in the story AirBlade would have easily found a slightly higher score.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    While visually diverting, Okage is only slightly above average overall.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It’s depth will hook hardcore racing fans, but its difficult AI will have mostly everyone else frustrated.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Offers a good amount of playability for anyone even remotely interested in motocross or racing games in general.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The biggest problem here is how tedious some of the objectives can be, but the story is interesting enough to keep you playing, and it's a decently long experience as well.

    Oni
    Had the control scheme been less complex and easier to learn, that would have gone a long way toward fixing the problems.

    Heavy Iron gets much respect from me for making this such an authentic Scooby-Doo videogame.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great game. It's simple gameplay will take you back to the old school days of pure gaming goodness.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A load of fun.

    • 75 Critic Score
    UFC fans should be more than satisfied. It’s not as polished as I would’ve liked, and the depth is somewhat hindered by overly similar modes of play.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    High time demands put on the gamer by the "no saves in dungeons" design... won't bother hardcore fans but may tax the patience of the more casual fan.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tedious gameplay, horrid loading times, and a first few hours of gameplay hell make the game rather uninspiring. But getting past the first few hours will reward the gamer will a slightly better gaming experience.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There isn’t much fun to be found in the game despite its solid gameplay mechanics.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    This game is basically made for the DBZ fans out there than don't mind putting up with some sub-par gameplay as long as they get to play as their favorite DBZ characters.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Sure, the story is a little weird, and yes, the music isn't quite as good as it was in the first game, but PaRappa 2 is a solid effort, nonetheless.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A fun enough concept but lacks a certain next-gen sparkle.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The interface is clumsy, and the long load times can offset the fun factor. Even so, hardcore strategy fans should have fun with this.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Incorporates a moving story with surprisingly addictive gameplay, while adding a dash of comedy to spruce up an otherwise sinister plot. The environments are beautiful and highly detailed.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best new PS2 titles out there, and despite some creative drawbacks, the sound effects and graphics are nicely done and draws you in to the experience.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, frustrating AI, boring course variety, and uninspired tricks give this game a slightly above average, generic feel.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Hardcore fans will love the action and the realism, but casual gamers just looking for action-packed racing fun may want to look elsewhere.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The non-stop action can get a bit repetitive and ultimately tiresome, and the sound effects may begin to wear on the nerves after a few hours of playing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Great graphics, good sound, mediocre gameplay. We were soooo close.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Quite disappointing. It's choppy framerate, second rate graphics, and bland textures affect both gameplay and fun factor. These characters have character, and it simply doesn't show up on the PS2 version.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The new multi-player options and superb gameplay could actually keep you playing until MGS 2 in October. I've played precious few PS2 titles that are better, and Winback is certainly one of those games that will seem impossible to put down.

    • 70 Critic Score
    It has most of the necessary ingredients to turn four friends with beer (or soda, for the tykes out there) into a night of simple, over-the-top, tank-based explosions and partying. Don't expect a one-player game though.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although it is hampered with framerate issues and a bit of a clumsy interface, the game delivers on mostly every other aspect.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's the best pool title you can get on any system right now... In the end, the question you have to ask yourself is, will I really spend enough time with this game to warrant a $50 purchase?
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Loads of potential. As for this year's game, it “bumbles and stumbles” out of the gate to a third-place finish behind Madden 2002 and NFL2K2.
