    Fast-paced, big on fun, and contains the best passing engine on any hoops game. [Feb 2003, p.67]

    The delights are mostly in the details - and the developer has taken the time to stuff this version full of neat little extras. [Apr 2003, p.73]

    For those with the cash, it's well worth it. [Feb 2003, p.95]

    It's an all-engrossing interactive soap-opera that grabs hold of you and never lets go. Consider yourself warned. [Feb 2003, p.64]

    Particularly thrilling is the motorcycle chase on the narrow freeway, evoking strong visions of what EA could have done had it been blessed with The Matrix license. The cohesion between 007's on-foot missions and driving excursions further adds to the cinematic feel, which is Everything or Nothing's strongest trait.

    Offers a more simplified, newbie-friendly version of traditional Tribes gameplay. [Jan 2005, p.92]

    Various artificially induced frustrations hold the game back from its true potential. Still, it's nearly there, and for those with strong jaws, it's an otherwise exceptional experience. The next game should be unstoppable, but it better well feature Eric B. and Rakim. [Nov 2004, p.122]

    The acrobatics alone make Warrior Within a must-buy. Rounded out with superb character design and vast Myst-like landscapes, this Prince is another winner.

    Boktai finely fuses the action with the role-playing, so it's well suited to fans in either camp. [Oct 2003, p.78]

    Still the best baseball sim there is. [Apr 2003, p.65]

    What really distinguishes this charmer is its finely honed sense of pacing: While the first game's notorious difficulty level is fully intact, the levels, objectives, and boss battles are mixed and matched to near perfection.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great-looking and playing racer with one major drawback: a tedious password save system. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    Ruby and Sapphire stick to the script - there are few surprises here. Yes, the world is all new, and yes, there are 100 new Pokemon, but it's still basically the same game. [June 2003, p.78]

    A totally new game. Unfortunately, it lacks the depth of the other games here, and therefore won't satisfy hardcore baseball fans. [Apr 2003, p.64]

    The third volume includes features that rocket its entertainment value to an entirely unparalleled level. [Dec 2004, p.115]

    Combat is intuitive and intense, it looks absolutely gorgeous, and it never gets boring. [Apr 2003, p.55]

    If Turbine can keep the quality content coming, AC2 deserves your hard drive, you Internet bandwith, and your $12.95 a month. [Feb 2003, p.71]

    • 80 Critic Score
    Two-player action can get a bit confusing, though, and the game will appeal to a niche audience only. But for those with the fever for quarter-crunching thrills, consider the eagle landed. [Oct 2004, p.94]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With great dialogue, beautiful art direction, and generally high-quality puzzles, it's worthwhile to indulge the designers' crate fetish just to see what comes next.

    Possibly the best reason to own a PS2 network adapter. The team-based miliary tactics work better online than off. [Feb 2003, p.93]

    Difficult yet engaging. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    Combining the reckless, breakneck speed and high-impact collisions of Burnout with the neon-tipped street culture of "Fast and the Furious" (and, more specifically, "Midnight Club II"), Underground is the new definition of white-knuckle.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A lot of fun, but if it has one problem, it's that it is too similar to the previous game. But hey, the first game was great. [Aug 2003, p.71]

    There are no more than a handful of truly danceable tracks. The rest are either slow, boring, or both. [Jan 2004, p.64]

    Squad-based, tactical strategy game set in the same universe as the classic Fallout rpg sets a new standard. [Feb 2003, p.94]

    Fighters plays up the action while devaluing its story with cookie-cutter bad guys, bad accents, and jingoistic sentiments. [Oct 2003, p.76]

    The Practice mode could've been more intuitive, like "Madden 2004's" minicamp mode. It was not only difficult to figure out, but also, ultimately, not even that helpful. [Dec 2003, p.86]
