    It's tricky. Plunge in with the right attitude though and this will keep you happy for months.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Constantly surprising, always delightful, never less than utterly stunning, this journey through the looking glass into a new and perfectly formed world is escapism of the very highest order.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's still by far the finest crafted game of its ilk on the N64 and it positively oozes class from every pore.

    No matter what your tastes are, after just an hour in Mario's new world, we can guarantee that you?ll not want to move from your chair. Ever.

    But don't take it that lightly: it's cute good- looks and sense of humour don't detract at all from what is an exquisitely crafted game of tennis.

    One of the most rounded and comprehensive packages you're ever likely to see, something that makes it worthy of recommendation to all discerning Pokefans out there.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Far from being the cash-in we'd all expected, this is one of the best puzzlers money can buy. Excellent stuff indeed.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A truly relentless wrestling game that will smack your head into several metal posts before grabbing your feet, twirling you around and launching you several furlongs over empty space.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A great game, but it's never going to replace "Goldeneye" or "Perfect Dark." Both games do things bigger and better and more often.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There are so many modes, multi-player games and features that could easily have you seeing less and less daylight as time goes on.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The scope for customisation, combined with the excellent battle system, a beautifully drawn game world, and an engrossing (if somewhat cliche) story means that Grandia 2 easily rivals the likes of "FF."
    • 94 Metascore

    If you own a Dreamcast, you really would be an unadulterated fool not to purchase this game. For JSR, quite simply, rocks.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Bizarre Creations haven't done much but develop Metropolis Street Racer, mapping out San Francisco, Tokyo and London in fantastic detail for what I can safely say is the best racing game that I've ever played.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The best console RPG since Squaresoft's "FFVII" on the PlayStation. Get ready for a monster phone bill.

    It's in full-on four-player mode that Power Stone 2 attains genius status. As long as you've got three mates up to speed on the game, you literally won't be able to put your joypads down.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Quite simply fantastic. The most universally appealing Dreamcast title yet.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    More action-packed than the original was.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Put simply, this is the best 2D beat-em-up that we've played on any format so if you're a fan of the genre and choose to veer away from stunning 3D fighters like "Soul Calibur," this is the game for you.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Polished to a piercing gleam, considered beyond mortally tangible thought, it's the best beat 'em up we've played in years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The characters actually have... well... character. We know their history, their allegiances, their grudges, and even the colour of their panties in certain circumstances.

    It's safe to say that UFC is bloody hard, in all senses of the word.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The only downsides are that there are no female players (come on Sega!) and in Exhibition mode you can only set up one set matches - there are no full-on grand slams.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's one of those games that's simple to grasp, but bastard hard to explain.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The grand-duke of the soldier sims. If you have even the slightest interest in the subject matter, it's a must.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's going to take something pretty damn special to knock this off the top spot. Now suit up and scramble soldier
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    More game play, more parks, more sounds and more options than you can shake a stick at - Tony Hawk's just got better.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A blaze of fiendish difficulty and strategic brilliance. You're about to be sorted.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Play it loud, on a big-assed TV, until you've mastered every character, your girlfriend's left you and the bank has repossessed the goldfish.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Don't expect depth, merely an ongoing rush of a pure gaming high. Bliss!
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It would be churlish to criticise the game for a bit of net slowdown because, whether you're playing online or offline, this is without doubt the best basketball game ever. Nothing but nylon!
