    The major issue is how quickly the single player mode can be completed. Within six to eight hours, most experienced players will have finished the game leaving only the multiplayer mode.

    This game has some of the most simplistic controls and easiest flying system around. Outstanding graphics and intense gameplay make this game fun that will last for a while.

    What Jedi Knight lacks in spark, it compensates for with the oodles of money that a giant like LucasArts can throw into the development process. Add to that good environments, great music, tons of options, solid gameplay, and smooooooth net connections and I can certainly say that fans of the genre won't be disappointed.

    Although not the best motocross title currently available, MTX Mototrax puts together a respectable experience that most fans of motocross should enjoy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Single-player control is frustrating at times, and strategy isn't as important as the brute force method because of this. Nevertheless, this game gets a boost from attention to graphic detail and audio.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The concept of combining animals together to create units is innovative enough to overcome other stagnant RTS aspects.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the really cool features of the Xbox version of this game is that you can go online through Xbox Live to check out the high scores for any of the games or upload your own for bragging rights. It really makes the games that much more fun to play.

    • 85 Critic Score
    I love this game, and I hate this game. It needs to be a lot longer, and cared for with a great deal more polish. As it stands, though, it’s still a great rental, and with its easy play style, I think you’ll like it as much as I did.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    I was a tad disappointed in the slowdowns but, given the beauty of the game, it was forgivable.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Simple, with a tight design, this title is well worth playing.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The game would have scored much higher had it managed to better balance its weapons’ issues, but it’s still worth buying if you are into flight simulators and don’t want to mess around with a computer game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The player graphics are absolutely adorable and the whole package is loaded with vibrant colors and comical animations.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    An impressive looking and playing game with strong multiplayer capabilities. Pick it up if you like this style of game or are in need of another game you can put into your “completed” pile.

    The best news yet, however, is that EverQuest: Omens of War doesn’t use the flagging/trial system that has been so prevalent in the last few expansions. Much to the delight of just about everybody, most zones are accessible right off the bat and should make both raiding and grouping a less frustrating experience.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you’re looking for lots of new, flashy graphics or big updates to the original AO, this expansion might be a big disappointment. But for my money, Anarchy Online: Alien Invasion is an excellent addition to the Anarchy Online multiverse.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    About as beautiful a videogame that you are ever going to see. Yes, it even looks better then the remake that came out earlier this year.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Other than totally lacking the "tension" of risking losing $500,000 to go for that million, it does a good job of capturing the gameplay and general feel of the game show.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Most importantly, last year’s control scheme has been reworked to now offer extremely responsive and fluid control of your fighters.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Codemasters have succeeded in doing what they set out to do. And that’s providing Indy Car racing fans with the most realistic and entertaining game to date. If you fall into that category, it’s a no-brainer.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Watching the beautifully rendered Godzilla lurch around the screen at your every command is a wonderful experience and the game plays as if the staff were all huge fans of all-night Godzilla-thons.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    When you are in the middle of the action, it is intense and very entertaining.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If you are not a big fan of wrestling games or rap artists, it will only be entertaining as a weekend rental.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    To be fair, there are a few simple puzzles to solve but nothing that is going to cause any great deal of thought. For Hulk fans however, destroying things on The Hulk missions will make up for its other shortcomings.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A well-selected assortment of gaming classics that could easily eat up weeks of your free time and is definitely worth a buy for any arcade gamer buff.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There's not a whole lot you couldn't live without if you stayed with the original and passed on the upgrade. However, those enhancements and fixes combined with the elaborate, well-researched and intriguing scenarios just manage to put this sub-product over the top.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A game for the serious online player who’s willing to pay for a monthly fee to adventure in what is the most detailed (virtual world) game on the market right now.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A remarkable game. It features a rich background that’s used fully in the involved and intricate plot and has fantastic graphics, voice acting and music that combine to deliver Raziel's and Kain's story to the player.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Offers a level of speed and intensity that’s difficult to capture in a game. It’s a complex balance to reach, but Acclaim definitely came close to achieving it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    With the colorful commentary and hard hitting action, those who plan on using the multiplayer modes won’t want to miss it.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The graphics give a good portrayal of World War II battlefields with detailed planes and reasonable texturing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There was something almost intangible about it that made me keep playing it. The more that I played the more I started to appreciate its humor, depth and just solid fun game play.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The main issue most will have is the controls and interface. If you can stick it out and get accustomed to the system, it does end up working well.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A pack for Sims addicts who love the first two installments, but still want more.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Could have been fantastic except for its game-slowing bugs and voiceover issues. Even with them, it's still addictive and I've found myself playing it until early morning.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    I don’t know about you, but I’m sold!
    • 89 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A must-play for any simulation fans. I enjoyed the campaign levels and spent many a late night striving to get that last load in for the gold star achievement.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    it's not going to be game of the year or even in the top five RPGs either but Sudeki still offers something worth playing and given enough time, most will come to appreciate the innovation and unique RPG it offers.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Despite the ultra clean graphics, the boredom factor lies in wait for experienced gamers. I played through most of the Comanche 4 campaign missions in a few days. But, those were a good few days.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The only problem I had with the game was the lack of the ability to easily reclaim your own buildings and units. Total Annihilation had the option, but it's missing in Kingdoms.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    An excellent single-player racing game. It has great features, and its simple control structure and ability to work effectively with slower machines make this an excellent game for almost any racing fan.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Extremely engaging and challenging. The control system for pulling off tricks was intuitive and was picked up quickly but some of the challenges were frustrating.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Shogo not only provides the action, it does it with a plot and an artistic flair not often seen in today's games.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Although it isn’t the best game in the world, Extermination really strikes a chord in me for being such a good evolution of the horror adventure genre.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Given the style of this game, there should have been better analog controller support.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Never before have I played a football game that really allows you to watch the blocking unfold in front of you (or break down) and then make your move.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The first one had some things about it that made you play it and say, “Wow, that was cool. I have never seen anything like that before.” This installment will have you sitting back and saying the same thing.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    While the game certainly has a flair for the illegal, the graphics are just average. Characters all look underworldly, but they also look to remedial and blocky.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It’s a niche game that will only appeal to fans of this genre. If you enjoyed "Zoo Tycoon," you are sure to like JPOR. All others who are interested should rent first.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A really fun little piece of skater action, and has a much more forgiving learning curve than a lot of Action/Adventure titles that have been coming out recently.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    There's no denying that the Counter-Strike formula still works and as such, is still a load of fun. It’s just a shame that Xbox owners are only getting a slightly upgraded game that’s over five years old.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Wonderful and genuinely absorbing.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Lacking in some story elements, BR3 is nonetheless a good addition to any collection, one that I can easily recommend.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The storyline itself isn’t the greatest, but it is very well done compared to what this genre of game usually sees and the high quality graphics back that story up very well.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A sold third-person shooter but gets a little old after awhile, the game’s saving grace is its well-written plot and myriad of dialogue jokes. It’s almost like playing a Monty Python script.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It’s nice that the judging criteria can be adjusted to fit the vocal range (or lack thereof) of any player and with downloadable song packs, chances are there is something to please everyone.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Fun and addictive, this one will keep you playing for hours. It's been a long time since I've found a puzzle game I enjoyed as much as "Lemmings," but Empire has a winner here.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It is still a conventional RTS game and has issues with longevity as it can become boring and repetitive, but with the thirty missions and with multiplayer capabilities, you should get your money's worth.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The addition of rewarding knockouts does add a new dimension to the gameplay, but sacrificing the difficulty of the tracks may turn off some players.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The lack of originality may not put it in the running for game of the year, but the well-designed gameplay will keep you busy for some time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Basically the same graphics engine and gameplay as the original, with some welcome additions like pirate cartels, new ships, and missions that fit requirements of most expansion packs. Unfortunately, it also has long load times and a few bugs.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Anyone who has an interest in Military strategy with a whole lot of sci-fi thrown in should definitely go buy a copy of MechCommander 2, you’ll get your money's worth from the amount of playing time you’ll invest.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The unique racing experience offered here stands out from the pack of futuristic titles with high-speed action and gorgeous graphics.
    • 71 Metascore

    I enjoyed this title immensely...Easy to pick up, but hard to beat.
    • 68 Metascore

    Fans of Rayman will love this latest release in the series; all others should rent it or hold on to your money for "Jax2."

    If you’re waiting for the next generation of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, wait for the next version.
    • 78 Metascore

    The only drawbacks to this title are its relatively high difficulty later in the game and the fact that it really hasn’t changed at all since the original Armored Core.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The combination of racing and challenges makes Toy Story Racer a must-have for kart racing fans. With all the different challenges to complete and the different characters to unlock, you will have many fun hours of gameplay.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The biggest change in the sound is the addition of Comedy Central's Dave Attell as the announcer. He does a great job, but his list of comments is so short that you end up getting sick of hearing the same old jokes over and over again about 30 minutes into the game.
    • 79 Metascore

    For those without "Half-Life" or the motivation to download the hefty mod files, Day of Defeat is a worthwhile contender for your time.

    The other thing that depressed me was that with everything Circle of Blood had going for it -- a great plot, good acting, wonderful animation and elaborate background graphics -- most of the puzzles were too easy.

    With astonishing new graphics, and a rock solid gameplay style that is mostly untouched from the previous games, Primal Fury was worth the wait.
    • 71 Metascore

    The end product may not be as flashy or brilliant as other titles, but it is fun. In the end, that's what matters.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The only thing preventing me from scoring this graphics masterpiece in the 90’s was the somewhat weak storyline and the tedium that got me down on more then one occasion.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Worth mentioning is the absolute best scenario/campaign editor encountered in any software.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A short-lived but creative single player game and lengthy but mundane multiplayer one.

    No heartfelt sense of victory remained after the beauty pageant had ended. A more comprehensive motocross biking game might have included racing, not just freestyle.

    The competitors in Tube Slider are brutal and extremely difficult to beat. Racing using these controls is nigh impossible at first and takes a while to get used to, resulting in an unappetizing first course of gameplay.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It’s really up to you – the person behind the controller – to decide whether the violent content makes or breaks Manhunt since the core gameplay mechanics of Manhunt aren’t all that compelling.

    While the game falls short of being truly awesome, Wolverine fans will find plenty to like about Wolverine’s Revenge and should definitely check it out.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A very difficult game that was frustrating almost as much as it was fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The beauty of this game is that you can play it at face level and just enjoy the battles or if you’re really into Pokémon you can research every little aspect in the game and try to collect ‘em all and become a human Pokédex.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The foul language and large amounts of brutality should be considered before buying. It does however offer solid stealth action gameplay and a unique experience.

    The music is great, with enough variety to please just about everybody some of the time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A respectable action-packed arcade game that will provide hours of entertainment. It’s certainly not the answer that hardcore flight-sim fans might have been hoping for, but then again, it doesn’t pretend to be.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    NFL Blitz Pro’s blend of a more realistic style of gameplay and hard hitting action definitely improves the single player experience without overly sacrificing the multiplayer gameplay.
    • 65 Metascore

    Full of great gameplay and action, great graphics, great sound, great control, and great frustration.
    • 80 Metascore

    Offers an experience that will entertain those looking for an easy to pick up golf game but lacks the depth Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 offers.

    What I got was DDR with the EyeToy thrown in as an afterthought. It’s still worth a try if you’re a DDR fan or have an EyeToy and want to try something a little different, but Dance Dance Revolution Extreme just doesn’t live up to its name.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    With graphics that are a living tribute to the power of modern console gaming and gameplay that is firmly rooted in the simply action-packed arcade games of the past, Silpheed is a very fun, very retro, shooter game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It’s surprising how well crafted the game is, especially taking into account the subject matter.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Isn’t as well implemented as I’d have liked. Enjoyable, for certain, but lacking that unidentifiable combination of speed and ease of movement that makes games like this great, I can’t say that Tony Hawk was a truly excellent title.

    Once you look past the seemingly innocent façade, you will find yourself tossed around the proverbial meat grinder.

    It should leave the most seasoned adventurer hungering for more. The hack-and-slash battles and the progressive storyline should keep the most demanding RPGer happy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    I wasn’t overly impressed with the weak storyline and drab voice acting, but I must give kudos to any game that scares the hell out of me. If it weren’t for that, this game would easily rate a 65.

    It adds new depth and action to the Fallout universe, while staying true to the rich history already built for the world.

    Building on the fantastic gameplay of the original with new cities, cars, and racing modes, Midtown Madness 2 will blow your socks off.
