    Basically the developers took everything that was right about GT and multiplied it by a factor of ten in GT2.

    Abe also manages to remain challenging while never becoming irritating. Words cannot express how important this is. [Overall Score = 97]

    Maybe it's because the cinemas that push the game forward are so amiable and bizarrely infectious with their dubiously likeable characters and ridiculous story that you simply can't escape the essence of the game.

    Even at its most frustrating lower points, Tomb Raider 2 satisfies, and when at it's peak of effectiveness, the game is a soaring masterpiece. [Score = 98]

    Tony Hawk definitely contributed all of what he knows that makes skating fun and incorporated it into a game that lets anybody feel like a professional skater.

    Don't wait any longer if you don't have this game -- THPS 2 is the most fun and solid purchase any Playstation owner can make.

    Valkyrie Profile comes highly recommended and is by far the best role-playing game I've played so far this year.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the best games of the year on any platform.

    The story is rich and interesting with just enough plot twists and turns to keep you on your toes, but not too many to make you scratch your head in confusion...Without a doubt, one of the finest games for the GBA to date.

    There is a perfect blend of simplicity and complexity that makes this game so highly addictive.

    Graphically the game looks fantastic. The game is insanely colorful and the sprites are well animated.

    With a pleasant mix of a fantastic storyline, great character development, good pacing of action and adventure, pleasing graphics, and challenging, but fun puzzles, makes Golden Sun practically the “dream” game for fans of the RPG genre.

    Just another bright and shining jewel on the Miyamoto crown of accomplishments! This often overlooked masterpiece will finely get the time in the lime light it deserves.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the most innovative titles to come out for any platform in quite some years.

    The music in The Minish Cap is simply wonderful. Around 70 percent of the music is composed of previous Zelda music, but redone to fit the new game.
    • 97 Metascore

    The game most easily comparable would be "Half-Life," but even that just pales to the overall scope and vision of Halo.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It is gorgeous, full of different modes to play and things to unlock, and most important of all, fun to play and accessible.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A visually and aurally overpowering game with playability to back it up.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    If you purposely waited those extra months in hope that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the Xbox would be the definitive version, you made the right choice.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It is online gaming at it's best, and nothing really compares. You can single handedly blow away your enemies, team up, or whatever, it's up to you.

    Game play is where Pro Racer Driver leaves most games behind. The computer A.I. is top notch, and reacts like a real driver and not just robot drones that are either set in one pattern, or trying to wreck your car purposely.

    The simple yet addictive gameplay, amazing and strategic boss battles, and wonderful sense of style make it a keeper and a must have for any Xbox owner.

    A fantastic and gorgeous “arcade style” rally racing game...that has finally bypassed GT3 in terms of visuals...The best racing game of the year, arcade or otherwise.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the most amazing aspects of this game is how the world responds to your actions. It is very open ended, and the decisions that you make during the course of your adventures directly affect the outcome of the entire game... One of the greatest RPGs that I have played thus far.

    The bottom line is a basketball game that has almost airtight controls, wonderful graphics, along with the most immersed franchise mode you can find, (outside of working for your local team’s front office) can only described as a finely tuned and polished basketball game worth buying no matter what system you own.

    Make no mistake about it, this game does not trounce, destroy, walk all over, or replace "Grand Theft Auto." It is a better game though, as it is more refined and makes a nice addition for those who like the genre and are looking for more.

    From the huge open mountain to the convincing radio station to the numerous events, this is one cool experience.
    • 91 Metascore

    First Person Football is the monster addition though. With everything in the gameplay that was updated for 2K4, I don’t know how they found the time to add this big of an addition. First Person Football is a game unto itself, and you get it for free.
    • 84 Metascore

    The best Rally game on the market, bar none.

    What really impressed me about Thief: Deadly Shadows was its exquisite attention to detail in all regards. From the graphics to the sound to the level design, every aspect of Thief: Deadly Shadows seems lovingly crafted by those who genuinely cared about what they were doing.
