    The hands-down winner if you plan to play online.

    The surprising thing about Scaler is the game is just plain fun to play. The gameplay is robust with reasonably challenging puzzles to solve, the control system is enjoyable as Scaler is easy to move and smooth, and the story is humorous with a solid plot.

    This title isn't perfect, is a bit too short, and doesn't always have the best controls.

    With downloadable content, multiplayer games, and a voice feature, it’s getting the most out of your broadband connection.

    To say the least, this was an exhilarating feeling. Even with its slow, lumbering bulk, it was truly satisfying to pilot my favorite of all childhood sci-fi vehicles.
    • 69 Metascore

    My favorite part is definitely how the game doesn't really point you in one way or the other, whether to be somewhat good or despicably bad, a feature that something like Manhunt should've included.

    Surprisingly, this game still manages to entertain, and is easily one of the best party games I still own.

    This is only a $20 game, so I’m perfectly happy seeing a game that’s got repetitive gameplay and slightly off visuals, especially when the game designers went out of their way to make Evil Dead fans happy. ‘Nuf said, play on.

    The most interesting element of this robust racer is the trick system which uses a blend of well-timed button mashing and joystick movements to give you access to seemingly endless array of cool air tricks.

    The only real complaint to be found is the game’s length, as it must be completed in a specified period of time, thirty of Olimar’s days.

    I like it so very much and wish there was more to do once I made it through the 16 tracks. Buy this game, enjoy it and then sell it for the latest and greatest from the Big N.

    I'd highly recommend Wario ware, Inc. Mega Party Game$! as a buy for anyone who's into Tetris like fun or has children or a wife who may be looking for some idle fun.

    Good, very good. Excellent playability, a large selection of game modes, five good courses included, and improved graphics over the last version. What would I like to see? More pros, better chatter from the pros and players, and I would also like to see a build-a-player mode.

    Although the single player campaign is a little disappointing, the multiplayer features and fabulous gameplay, combined with stunning visuals, make MechWarrior 4 nearly an instant classic.

    With a combination of stunning graphics, high-octane action and sweet multiplayer gameplay, NHL Hitz 20-02 comes off as one of those rare titles most PS2 owners will not want to miss.

    Offering a compelling mix of solid graphics and college-specific gameplay, along with the best dynasty mode to date -- NCAA Football 2002 is without competition.

    If you're already a bona fide Sims addict, go out and buy this pack now. It's priced as low as $17 in some places and is definitely worth the money.

    Remarkably satisfied with this title.

    It's a nice diversion from the run-of-the-mill military strategy games, and it's different enough that casual fans of strategy games might be lured into the glory of being a firefighter.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall, it looks terrific, but there are some issues. Environments are a bit blocky, textures are a bit drab, and there are some noticeable framerate hitches, but Tak and the Power of Juju still looks great despite these faults.
    • 83 Metascore

    Gamers looking for twitch action or a strategy game with a strong emphasis on combat might be disappointed, but gamers who prefer to meticulously oversee things rather than execute them directly have something to look forward to.

    The appeal of online warfare with this attention to the extras (turrets and vehicles) makes this an awesome online gaming experience.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the most original takes on a first person shooter to come along in quite a while. The game's clever blend of shooter and real time strategy almost warrant dubbing CCR a Real Time Shooter Strategy.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The graphics are stunning. I can honestly say this one area where this game leaves all the rest in the dust.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    I normally want to kick off a few points for a title that closely matches it's original, but in this case, the gameplay is near rock solid.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Yes, this game slowly creeps under your skin and doesn’t let go.
    • 91 Metascore

    Soaked in detailed graphics and nerve-wracking sound effects, this is a game for the hardcore gamer who wants to be a part of World War II for better or worse.

    Quake is fun. Quake is cool. Quake is the best game of its type I have ever seen. Quake won't let me sleep at night. However, Quake could be better.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Doesn’t have a lot of spit & polish, and at first glance would seem to be a pretty crappy game, but that’s only skin deep. Get underneath the hood, and you’ll find an enjoyable fight engine, lots of extra material, and an impressive amount of content for a fighting game.

    If a 10-inch thick blade rammed through his heart has no effect on him, why should Sin Scissors' demon weapons affect him?
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game still suffers in gameplay because you’ve got to micromanage your population, telling people to go forth and do things one at a time, but at least your metropolis gets to be inhabited by a populous and intriguing people.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Just fun, mostly enhanced by its multiplayer mode. It’s definitely worth it.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    After spending a fairly short amount of time with the game, I found the controls very smooth, but what really makes this game such a blast to play is the inventive combat system.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With the chance to play a myriad of characters in many different ways, this is my favorite RPG of the year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    On the negative side, Republic Commando is extremely short, and extremely brutal.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic game in a genre that is, sadly, rarely tapped. Its single player mode is more than worth the money, unfortunately the multiplayer modes do little to add to the game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Cinematically seamless, you'll only get thrown out of the gameplay by pre-rendered cutscenes, because everything else is handled in the game engine.
    • 80 Metascore

    Everything Diablo should have been. Better story, more diverse action, continuously loading world, and better graphical interface. Highly Recommended.

    Something that finally takes the EyeToy to the next level, turning a toy into an honest to God controller.

    • 90 Critic Score
    It may not be as expansive as other real-time strategy games, as it focuses solely on combat, but Myth: The Fallen Lords is bloody, good fun, especially when you move into the multiplayer arena.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Online play, I might mention, is excellent. Though currently sparsely populated, Wings of War servers tend to draw dogfight specialists, so your chances of getting more skilled when fighting online is very good.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    In addition to a stunning physics engine, MX vs. ATV has really nice graphics. Well designed courses, high detail models, and simply a great attention to a nice, clean look makes this one of the nicer realistic racing titles I've seen.

    With fantastic visuals that don’t seem to have suffered all that much from the transition from the Xbox, Full Spectrum Warrior will be sure to delight tactical strategy fans looking for something different.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The most interesting features I found were the cost system, which determines the relative order of actions in the game, and the equipment bonuses, which can vary depending on how you equip each item in relation to another item.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's reproducing essentially the same game we've played for years in the arcades on a handheld using that can literally fit in your pocket. And it performs well too, without any graphical slowdown that I could notice.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Fans of the movie can’t go wrong here, and likewise, fans of free-roaming, non-linear action titles have a lot to love here as well. It might not be an offer you can outright refuse, but it comes pretty close.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Every bit as fast and furious as the original, this game kicked my ass.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    So overall it's a buy, except possibly for those who might find the apparent wishful-thinking anti-Americanism of the setting disturbing (It depicts Washington DC as a post-nuke grease spot with a ruin of the Washington Monument in the middle.)

    Bottom line, if you liked Rise of Nations (and there were few who didn’t), Rise of Legends will be right up your ally.
    • 90 Metascore

    At times challenging, and at others simply frustrating, you’ll need keen wits and grace under fire to deal with the obstacles presented in this title.

    On the PSP, it really shines, offering up a portable dungeon hack that matches its consoles counterparts in just about everyway -- something you can rarely say for a PSP port.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    So satisfying is the experience, that you’ll forget that some of the multiplayer levels aren’t laid out that well, either being way too big, or sardine tiny.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There’s a ton of things to do but don’t give up on it too early. It may take a couple of times playing before the full scope and possibilities of the game is clear.
    • 81 Metascore

    Quake 4 is fun. It’s not the evolutionary or revolutionary kind of fun, but it’s kind of old school FPS fun that the Quake series helped usher into the gaming world.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A surprisingly enjoyable title that blends the sensibilities of old school arcade games with the complexities of modern gaming, making for a title that’ll likely please just about anyone, gamer or not.
    • 81 Metascore

    By stepping from an action packed exploration and puzzle game into a full blown action title, Dawn of Dreams has managed to breathe new life into this series. I heartily recommend it.

    In the end, the best thing that I can say about Amped 3 is that it’s fun, and simply has enough to do to keep you entertained for a good long time.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With the little additions, I’d say that this is definitely the version to own, as it simply has that much more to offer.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It helps all the more if you can recognize the subtle genius in zerging an enemy base with a battalion of Lothlórien elves, but even if you can’t, it’s still worth a long look.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If there were a few more hours here, it would’ve been a really A+ title, but as it stands it’s still a good purchase.

    Def Jam succeeds by using its license to the fullest and provides a satisfying Hip Hop themed fighter.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Be careful should you choose to pick this up, it has a nasty habit of making addicts out of your family members that normally don’t care for games.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The slick gameplay, the innovative assassinations and the fact that between hits you are dealing with a rival agency that is eliminating your contacts and coming after you, makes this a first class action title.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you can get past the stiff difficulty, it has all the elements of a great RPG with its intriguing storyline, compelling combat and deep game mechanics.

    On its own merits Valkyrie Profile is easy to recommend, but given the relative lack of high quality RPG’s on the PSP, it’s a definite must buy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Pretty much an unqualified success. It provides a strong primary gameplay mode, something that’s complex and yet easy to get into, while still rounding out the game with enjoyable minigames.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With great multiplayer (I mean, it’s a sports game, so it figures), and a wealth of different gameplay options, this is a title that should keep you entertained for a good long while.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall, this is my favorite Arcade game for the simple fact it is original. The humor, graphics, puzzles and challenge level all feel great.

    The MS Flight Simulator X is resource-intensive, so even though there are low settings for all graphics and activity options, to get the most out of this latest version of the state-of-the-art civilian flying software you'll want to run it on the fastest hardware you can get your hands on.
    • 89 Metascore

    Even though the characters aren’t as customizable as some other games, I found myself more involved molding each one so I don’t necessarily think this is a hindrance.

    The game is easy to pick up with its user-friendly interface. As a matter of fact, I was more than surprised with the amount of offensive and defensive capabilities the game contains.
    • 75 Metascore

    Simply put, great graphics, sounds, control, gameplay, and variety in levels all make for a great game playing experience.

    Aquila has an intuitive interface that keeps you heading toward the enemy, blazing away. With four different craft configurations and a variety of weapons with which to fight the enemy, there’s plenty to blaze away with.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Ultimately, all of these elements, gameplay, visual design, and even an orchestral soundtrack, are all brought together to support an ambitious narrative that starts with the opening of the game, and doesn't end even once the credits roll. In one word, the story in this game is compelling.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game itself does a good job of masking the appearance of the field, maintaining an illusion of 3D, and keeping the graphics consistent.

    Conflict Vietnam is both the best among the conflict games and one of the best among the Vietnam shooters today. That isn’t to say it’s a superb game, but it has its moments and can make for a pretty intense ride at times.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fun game chock full of interesting new elements and unlockable goodies, but it would drive any serious baseball fan absolutely batty, so I’d say if you’re into the in-depth, detailed gameplay you should give this one a swing and a miss.

    Instead of walking you through a calmly paced, occasionally tense New York from the film, you'll have all sorts of ways to smash and crash your way through this game.

    The greatest and most unfortunate part of this game is that it's almost a carbon copy of the original Knights. While this isn't a bad thing, because it was a solid gameplay design to begin with, there's not much more beyond a couple of interface improvements, some new powers, and a brand new story.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Fun, if not deep, compelling, if not always thrilling, humorous, if not always hilarious, but make no mistake, it's always entertaining.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This game is downright awesome. It is fun to play, lasts you a good ten hours or so, and with the addition of various unlockables and other options, it is worth playing again.

    Gun
    To get the full effect of Gun, the side missions are a must as the game can be ripped through rather quickly without them. Take your time, enjoy the experience and story, and you'll be glad you did.

    The only real flaw that I saw is the tendency for lag to creep in during a four person game, as the Gamecube does get a little stressed by the amount of processing required.

    Might be a bit too streamlined and stylized for some, coming off as more simplistic than artistic, but I personally love it. P.N.03 makes you feel as if you're in control of a laser-toting ballerina with death at her fingertips, and that's all good in my book.

    The game’s mechanics are a breeze to master, but still offer up enough intricacies to make playing the game more about skill than random button mashing and luck.

    There is, however, a very high learning curve to the game, which I guess isn’t surprising considering how complex it is. The tutorial gives you only the minimum of basics and there are very few in-the-game resources for learning.

    I can’t remember the last time I spent so much time playing just a single game... Just ask my wife. We would be sitting at the dinner table and she would look over at me with that evil eye and say “You’re thinking of that @#!$% game again aren’t you?”

    • 89 Critic Score
    Call me a glutton for punishment, but I've never been so addicted to a shooter. Maybe it's the fact the game keeps hammering me, but I can't get enough. I can't tell you how many times I muttered "this is ridiculous" or "you've got to be kidding" while playing the game, but I still love it.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    While it is a great game, it doesn't rate top honors due to the many issues with Battle.net and flaky support for Windows 2000.
