    Despite the lack of bots in Halo (something that I was extremely displeased with when I heard the news) the multiplayer aspect of the game can be extraordinarily exhilarating.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 98 Critic Score
    The amount of gadgets that work their way into the game is absolutely staggering, the feeling of playing James Bond will most definitely enter the minds of some gamers.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    It lacks the initial "grab" that the original had, but after a couple of courses, you're hooked on this new drug, and you won't want to stop.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    One of those games that keeps sucking me back in to play on harder levels or try to get farther in the alternate missions.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    The amount of detail displayed by the player models will simply astound you. Players look exactly like themselves from head to toe.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Just go get the game. Don't think, just run out and buy this game as quickly as possible.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    No other baseball title performs so well in so many departments - from visuals and animation to control and replayability. Clearly, the World Series Baseball franchise has regained the luster of its days on the Saturn.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It is quite simply the best multiplayer value you can find anywhere. That's including the all mighty "Halo."
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It's the best of the best folks, it's got everything that the other guys don't and more.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    JSRF is hipper and cooler than any game on the market. Other games are jealous, and rightfully so.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    Without a doubt one of the greatest games ever, regardless of console.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    A work of art that surpasses any mech game that I've ever played despite the lack of customization options.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Does Project Gotham Racing topple the PS2 giant? Not quite, but it's still one hell of a game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Intense racing, easy controls...The best racer out on the Xbox.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Aggressive Inline is stunning! There's no other way to say it.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The game developers have setup one of the best fighting systems this side of the original Mortal Kombat but the aspect where MK: DA truly excels greater then any fighter that I have played on the Xbox is depth.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Amazing visuals, strong audio, great depth both single player and multiplayer wise, beautiful presentation and solid all around gameplay makes Deathrow one of the hottest and most underrated titles of the year.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Some of the best money I have ever spent on an Xbox game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Simply spectacular.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A must own for fans of the space combat genre, or Star Wars fans.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The difficult AI (thankfully adjustable with the difficulty levels) helps to keep things challenging (and at times frustrating) while the story keeps the player hooked and coming back for more.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Graphics are great, not many complaints there - except the issue of clipping.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The controls are rock solid.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you're a hard-core RPG fan and looking for a game that doesn't lead you by the nose like Final Fantasy then Morrowind is the game for you.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With an amazingly good-looking package and an incredibly fun game in both the single and multiplayer modes, Blood Wake is a truly excellent Xbox game.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exquisite...By far the best basketball game available on the Xbox.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The lighting of this game rivals any on the Xbox. It's awesome to see skid marks from a previous lap remain in the same spot and to see falling rain clean off your tires and smudge up the camera for the game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Graphics, control, and sound all perform excellently without hiccups of any kind.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The music fits the frantic pace of the game play and the menus and player taunts, grunts, and hits are all done very well.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    P.S. to LucasArts - The Xbox has 4 controller ports and LAN capabilities…
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Easily the most enjoyable hockey game I have played in ages.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    The game is highly engrossing and playable, and more than makes up for the technical shortcomings.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    The addition of online play, coupled with the flexibility of the fighting styles makes for a surprisingly deep arcade fighter.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The formula of solid gameplay, plus solid sound and controls makes for a hell of a hockey game.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Gameplay can frustrate some, but for all that spend the time to learn the nuances and to learn the feel of the game will not be disappointed.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There's more under the hood than a simple half hour of shooting. Sure, the game is short, but with all of the extras included, the shelf life of this game extends longer than many other releases on the market.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Simply put, it's just plain fun, and I couldn't stop playing. The game plays great, but the only drawback to this is there aren't that many different modes.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of those Xbox games that couldn't be done on another console without comprimising quality.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Combining slick graphics, beautiful voice-overs, a great single player experience and a wide array of punches, characters and arenas, Rocky categorizes itself as one of the best boxing games ever created.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Solid in every aspect, with a few outstanding features (audio, some of the level designs).
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Despite being filled with tired cliches Max Payne is one of the most engrossing games released this year for the Xbox.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The graphics of NFL 2K2 are the only aspect of the game that lags behind just a bit.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's one hell of a good time.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Old school enthusiasts are virtually required to pick up a copy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The control scheme can be a bit difficult to get used to at first, but thanks to Battle Engine Aquila's instructive tutorial, the whole becomes extremely easy, extremely fast.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There will be times when you get so frustrated you'll throw the controller down in frustration, but 5 minutes later you're picking it back because the game is not only challenging, but fun.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Fun for the short amount of time it lasts.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This isn't for the serious hardcore fighter, though there is plenty here to like, but with the campy humor many may be put off.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Despite the fact that this looks like a PS2 game and has come control and camera issues, the story (and the execution of it) are stellar.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The game is an amazing hockey simulation with great artificial intelligence and online play as well as an acceptable graphics and sound department make NHL 2K3 the absolute best hockey title available.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The action and espionage genre come together in this game, and come together in a most impressive form.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Combining great graphics, humorous concepts, vast amounts of game modes, and its shares of improvements on the 2002 version, NFL Blitz 2003 managed to satisfy my every need for the fall football season.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Because of its simplicity, it doesn't take much sports knowledge to pick up and play, and that's a major reason why I loved it.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although Obi Wan sounds like a duck with a rock in his throat, it was funny and other voice acting sounded pretty much as it should.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The levels are not timed - in those that require you to meet a set point limit; it is very easy to just perform the same move over and over again to get the necessary score. The lack of difficulty in certain areas drops the replayability.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Digital crack, plain and simple.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The graphics in F1 2001 are definitely some of the best I've seen in a Formula 1 game. Incredibly high-resolution textures populate everything from the tires on all of the cars to the steering wheels that your driver attempts to tame throughout the course of the race.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Perhaps one of the biggest improvements over previous incarnations of Tony Hawk would be the soundtrack...Now you can skate to whoever it is that gets you in mood, be it the Ramones, Black Flag, or Color Me Badd.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game demands a certain passion for the action/adventure genre, old and new and school alike. It also requires some time, some patience, and then some more time.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Players who are able to overlook the games graphical problems will be well awarded with a deep and satisfying game.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Perhaps the greatest drawback to Mad Dash Racing is the interface, which can be confusing at times.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With better graphical flare than many of today's simulation and arcade sports titles, Hitz not only boasts more arcade action but also dishes it on fun platters one after another.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great game, Genma falters in that its short, repetitive and just plain gets old rather fast. After all, it is old. After playing Capcom's latest for the PS2, "Devil May Cry," Genma really only made me want to go back and play that game yet another time due to the game's similarities and the fact that DMC is obviously a superior game.
    • 76 Metascore

    From the music to the finer details, TransWorld Surf allows you to really immerse yourself in the environment. The music soundtrack is very well done and probably one of the best I have seen in any game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game features quality graphics, sound, controls, and options but doesn't really sign above the competition in any of the aforementioned categories.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you are patient and you are a hard core strategy gamer then you really cant go wrong with Commandos 2.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If not for the tough level progression we might have been talking about this game in a completely different (and much happier) light.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Truly shines in the multiplayer modes. Bleeped out swear words and barely covered naughty bits definitely put this in the "not for kids" category.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Short of a grand slam, but it still makes its presence felt.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite the lack of multiplayer and user soundtracks (two glaring oversights), the game is highly enjoyable to newcomers as well as veterans to the series.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With a respectable amount of tracks and a good number of riders to choose from Splashdown delivers in almost every department for an extreme racing title.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A totally different game from the original. It doesn't matter how similar the gameplay of both versions is, it's the little (and big) additions like a Dynasty Mode and a Create-A-Player feature that makes the titles a pole apart.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The graphics are standard, the gameplay is far too simulation for my liking and the frustration level is higher then in any basketball game that I've ever played before.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A carefully crafted and outstanding racing experience.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The excessive amount of FMV movies in the story mode is something that really hampers the enjoyment.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    When it comes down to it, no Xbox owner should go without at least trying the video game industry's very first four-dimensional product.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The right mixture of intrigue, fright, and gore make for the best survival/horror game currently out for the Xbox.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The depth in this game is really great - and not just in replay value.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The graphics are very good and the story is original...I would have expected better. The dialogue and music bring the game down.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    As it stands it's a poorly put together title that is just a good-looking, rotten apple.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The submissions and grapples system is the best out there.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Multiplayer is definitely a weakness with Dark Summit, and hurts the replayability quite a bit.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The crashes and A.I. can lean more towards frustration during some races, so if you have a temper you may not wish to play Test Drive for too long.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The graphics, sound, and game play all do a great job of conveying the mood the game is trying to establish.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Overall, the game is fun to play, if lacking in certain technical areas.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The trick system is easy but limited, a flaw that should not have happened. All in all this game is a good buy.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A bit on the short side, but it's a satisfying game nonetheless.

    I don't know about you, but any of the NBA games I watch on TV there is some defense happening on the court. No lie, I played NBA Live 2002 on the hardest setting and still burned the opposing team by over 30 points. The AI in this game has some serious issues.
    • 71 Metascore

    It comes respectively close to being a good game...If they don't take off some of the theme music I'm going to go on a rampage.

    A deep, involving adventure in the land of Middle Earth. However, that adventure was filled with too much yawns to make it a definite stay in my collections.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game's smooth turnover from third-person shooting to almost flight simulation makes gameplay quick and exciting.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This game is definitely for the multiplayer and that's what makes it enjoyable. If you're looking for solo-play action then you definitely need to look elsewhere.

    The variety in gameplay is great, something for virtually everybody.

    A rehashed version of last year's game is about all you'll find in this latest installment of a still-promising game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    With a few more customization options and some robust (and online) multiplayer options, this could be the premiere series in the genre.

    For the old timers, nostalgia is enough reason to pick this one.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Does rather well on all fronts, but even so, doesn't really have an element that makes it stand out from the crowd around it.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The graphics, sound, and gameplay are all dismal at best.
    • 70 Metascore

    This isn't the kind of game that will hold your attention for an hour, and if you have that much time to kill, there are plenty of other games out there to be enjoyed, both solo and multiplayer.

    Short and not so sweet.
