    While the graphics took a small hit in the PS2 version, they have managed to tweak the control to near perfection.

    There’s a dramatic war story and fantastic scenary, and the trademark Ace Combat arcade gameplay is more solid than ever.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    One of the rare games that takes the best from lots of games, adds random dungeons, and a dash of its own originality, and ends up being a really great game.

    Currently the best real-time strategy title I have played since "Homeworld."
    • 90 Metascore

    An amazingly well put together role playing adventure that is easily one of the first candidates for game of the year.

    The missions themselves are so incredibly enjoyable and entertaining to play through, and are what make Thief II such a fantastic title.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    It’s the best that the genre has to offer thus far, and with a new detailed mapmaker, new weaponry and exceptional graphics, sound and game play.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    An absolute must-buy to any fan of turn-based strategy or real-time strategy. The mechanics are sound, the atmosphere is spot-on, and the scale of the battles is truly epic.

    Even if you aren't interested in the online portion, Activision and Neversoft have still nailed down another extremely solid sequel to the Tony Hawk franchise.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Not only has control of this environment been handled well, but the smoothness of overall presentation and gameplay seem to reflect an excellence from RTS titles that we should all be looking forward to in the future.

    With smooth graphics and animations, a true feel for the art of street ball, fantastic controls, and a multiplayer mode that brings out the trash talker in even choirboys make NBA Street a must have for owners of any major console.

    With AI that is light years ahead of EA Sports, a simulation experience that's second to none, and a fun - if somewhat fickle - online experience with Xbox, the serious hockey gamer should only look at one title this year.

    • 91 Critic Score
    Ratchet and Clank might have some of the most impressive environments yet in a game of this type.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Quite simply, the best arcade racer in years and a worthy follow-up to its PlayStation granddaddy...if you have a PS2, that is.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The best racing game I’ve played in months, and anyone looking to release a title in this genre now should look long and hard at what Rockstar’s been able to pull off here.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Seamlessly translates the PC experience straight to console players with simple controls, a clean interface, better graphics, and the same babble-talk that PC owners fell in love with.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The music is just plain amazing and it is perfect for the game.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Puts the word sequel to shame. Rockstar Games has really taken the time to put together a game that not only fits in perfectly in the GTA universe, but ups the ante for itself and others as well.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The real reason to pick up this version over last year's are the presentation upgrades.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The best racing game I’ve played in months, and anyone looking to release a title in this genre now should look long and hard at what Rockstar’s been able to pull off here.

    It makes nice use of various special effects and never slows down, but those with epillepsy problems will probably want to stay away. However, if you're familiar with raves, you'll feel right at home.

    Once you start this game you will find yourself thinking about it constantly.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Truly one of the most beautiful games I have seen this year.

    This game looks amazing. The character models and animation are clearly the cream of the crop...If you're not completely sold by now, then the Kumite will definitely put you over the top.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The story aspect actually helps the flow of the game. Instead of just doing random tasks all over the place, you feel more of a purpose and progression for doing those tasks.

    As far as realism, physics, and attention to detail, Colin blows away the competition.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    One of the best playing baseball games I’ve played in recent memory... This game is for purists.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A great game from a gameplay standpoint but fails pretty badly when it comes to the story. As a result, even though I've given it an A-, it turns out to be one of my biggest disappointments of the year.

    Despite the sometimes-baffling challenges (which, in all honesty, are pretty typical to the genre), EMI delivers exactly what the Monkey Island name promises-a lighthearted, entertaining, and well-written swashbuckling adventure game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Playing double is almost like learning DDR again from the beginning. That means that you get to have all that thrill of progression one more time! Seriously, it’s worth the price of an extra pad.
