    With a standout graphical look to it, and the great traditional RPG style, Paper Mario is certainly one of the best RPG games out there.

    Camera angles at its best. There is no need to control the camera angle if it's already position in the best possible matter – which seems to be how the camera works all the time. This is perfection at work.

    This 3D polygon world is absolutely astounding.

    From the second you put this game in; you will not want to stop playing. It might consume your life until you finish it, or until you get stuck that you can't deal with the stress anymore.

    Overall, a very fun game to play, though a warning goes out to anyone who can get frustrated with games, as this game's difficulty can really frustrate and anger you at times as it had me.

    Great RPG and certainly the best one on the PS2 currently, however, I feel it isn't as great as past FF's have been due to its lack of freedom.

    The one drawback in my opinion would be the replay value, as many people would find it pointless to replay the entire game just for a few secrets, since the story is the main reason to play a game like this.

    The missions are too short, the controls too slow, the graphics too dated, the characters too dull.

    It absolutely is the best looking, sounding, and playing N64 game. It should not be missed.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    The music almost has a Mario-like atmosphere to it although with some weird Japanese sound to it, which is great to hear while playing a platformer.

    If you ever thought you'd see a fun Tennis game, this is certainly it, and probably one of the most fun games in any genre.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A highly enjoyable game, however everyone's tastes differ, and many people may be turned off by the puzzle solving and want more action.

    ICO
    Though the shortness of a game may sound like a flaw, it’s really not. In ICO’s case, a longer length would have made the game quite tiresome as puzzle solving & pulling the girl from he pits of hell could tend to get a bit repetitive.

    If you're starved for a platformer you'll find plenty to do here, but personally, I'm content to let the apes run free. For now.

    The best graphical looking game of 2001.

    Though some view this as just Banjo-Kazooie with some minor improvements, take it from me, it is far from that. Definitely a candidate that is well deserving of being this years "Game of the Year".
    • 90 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    With awesome graphics, dead-on voice acting, an ingenious battle system, and a strong story plot, you would be crazy to pass this game up.

    Edges out "Red Faction 2" just by a hair. "Red Faction"'s single player mode is much more intense but lacks the cooperative campaign mode that Timesplitters 2 did.

    It's got the greatest rally driver endorsing it, all the cars, absolutely jaw-dropping graphics, realistic handling... but somehow, it just DOESN'T QUITE make it.

    Simply a great game.

    If I had to compare, I would say it is Need for Speed with better graphics, faster frame rates, better shortcuts, minus the cop’s pursuit, but equals the same fun.

    The most realistic and best hockey game you’ll find on the market anywhere.

    Improves upon NBA 2k2 in almost every single way.

    The lastability of this game is endless. Because this game is so much fun, plus is online, you can be playing this for years to come.

    An amazing game, which is much better than its predecessors on the PC.

    • 97 Critic Score
    It's chocked full of speed and action throughout that should satisfy almost any Sonic fan.

    Definitely not for fans of simulation Basketball games, but then again, this game is so much fan, it may be.

    Graphically, R4 outshines almost all the other racing games, with impressive lighting effects, a very high frame rate, and no visible slowdown at all.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    With a small drawback if you're coming to this game for the music, it is the best cycle game out there, not to mention one of the best N64 racers there is.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The best cart racing game that can be found on the Playstation, and possibly the current best on any system.
