    For racing fans who want a perfect mix of compelling gameplay, unequalled excellence of presentation, and a few sore thumbs, WipEout Pure will not disappoint. Ready? Go...

    A work of gaming genius... There's no other game coming out in 2003 that'll touch The Wind Waker.

    • 97 Critic Score
    Not as flashy as the competition. But its technical prowess and sheer depth give it an edge over every other game on the market -- even the vaunted, upcoming "Soul Calibur II," if only slightly. The game's immensely addictive, fun, intricate, and super speedy.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    The experience will stay with you for a long time -- everything from the action to the masterful story...Game of the Year on PS2? No arguments here!

    • 96 Critic Score
    Featuring a lovely variety of online-multiplayer games based on the best trick system in gaming, THPS4 is terribly addictive and ridiculously fun.

    • 96 Critic Score
    While the story isn't quite as moving as the original, Klonoa 2 has a wonderful mix of action, great control, nice challenge (if you try to really complete the game), and just beautiful presentation.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    It's the best version of an extremely excellent game, on the most powerful system of this generation, and that's something to relish.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    One of the finest games I've ever played. I'm still reeling from how incredible my experience with the game was.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    If "Resident Evil" was likened to "Night of the Living Dead," then think of Silent Hill 2 as "Twin Peaks," minus the damn fine coffee, but plus the atmospheric gloom and cast of insane deviants, with the entire mixture then taken out back into the woods, shot, hacked into small chunks, and buried.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    Plenty of tracks, options, characters, and personality -- there's a lot to like.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The Xbox version beats the other two in all the right ways.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Deeper than Marianas Trench, but fortunately, it's much easier to dive into. The most realistic, well-rounded and technically impressive fighting ever made.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Possibly the finest snowboarding game ever. SSX 3 offers an insane amount number of challenges, near-limitless replay value, and tight gameplay from start to finish.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It's a stunning comeback for the franchise, a fantastic mix of the fresh and the familiar, and enough content to make this the only game you need for the next few months. [**Reminder: GameSpy's "How Our Ratings Work" equates a 5-Star review with 95.]
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The A.I. is stellar, being random and properly intuitive; the level design is impeccable; the HUD display is laid out with precision, optimizing gameplay to the max. On and on, I could go. To think, Ubisoft Shanghai finished the game in little over a year's development time. A miracle, by modern gameplay standards. [*5stars=95 on GameSpy's scale]
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    One of the top strategy games of the year, on any platform.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Challenging. Addictive. Innovative. Accessible. Deep. Polished...after 30 hours, I'm still completely hooked. The customization options are a complete success, and I'm sure I won't put Tiger 2004 down until I've collected every trophy, medal, and item in the game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    I've enjoyed playing Halo on the PC far more than I ever did on the Xbox, and the inclusion of Internet multiplayer with new levels and modes is a huge addition...When everything's clicking, it's the closest I've seen a shooter come to providing perfect combat
    • 86 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The action in Max Payne 2 is as adrenaline-pumping as anything you'd see on the silver screen, and you're in control. Or dangerously close to spiraling out of control, as Max often is. Despite the length, this is top-quality entertainment.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The best PC RPG of the year, and possibly one of the best RPGs I've ever played...It's got that obsessive/compulsive quality that keeps pushing you to solve just one more quest, to finish one more task, to go up one more level just to see what new stuff you can get.

    • 95 Critic Score
    The GBA option captures the spirit of the game so much, even hardcore fans should want it as an alternative for when the TV or PC is occupied or when they're on the go.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The best version of these two games on <I>any</I> platform. The improvements are enough that you may want the Double Pack even if you've finished both games before.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    A brilliant action game from beginning to end, and is packed with so many amazing moments that it's my leading candidate for the best PC game of 2003, and there's a good argument to be made that's it's the best WWII shooter ever.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    A broader, deeper, and more addictive version of the brilliance found in its predecessor. And while it isn't quite perfect and the graphics show some age, it's clearly one of the best games released in 2002.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Simply the most polished and responsive action game we have seen so far this generation, and it's my belief it will likely remain so till the end. It fulfills the half-forgotten promise of the Xbox: to provide a gaming experience you can't get anywhere else. [*Note: GameSpy equates 5-stars/Ed Choice with a score of 95.]
    • 90 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Absolutely the best skating game for the system. The PS2 is the best at THUG life, and you owe it to yourself to insert your own digital presence into the game and take your skittles to the online arena.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Simply put: Korsun Pocket is a gem of a game and is one of the best wargames ever designed.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Possibly the finest snowboarding game ever. SSX 3 offers an insane amount number of challenges, near-limitless replay value, and tight gameplay from start to finish.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    From the main story mode to the arcade mode to the multiplay, there's not a weak spot to be found.
