    Bullfrog took on the near-impossible task of transforming a dedicated online game into a satisfying experience for the not-yet-online Playstation2, and completed it brilliantly.

    The AI is sharp, and even if it wasn't, you'd have to admire the tight multiplayer coding and thrilling multiplayer games offered on Sacrifice's free server.

    This isn't necessarily the Battle of Britain, it's YOUR Battle of Britain, and that makes it a game that anyone interested in that great battle, and flight in general, must have in their collection.

    Make sure your affairs are settled before you start playing this game, and pray that your relationship is strong enough to make it through the addiction.

    So far above and beyond the majority of real-time strategy games out there, it's tough to find any shortcomings at all.

    Realism aside, Half-Life provides some of the best unrealistic opponents seen to date as well. The creature design here is outstanding.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Having never played either of these back in the day, I can assure you that both of these games rank among the best RPGs ever made.

    The faces are the truest recreation of NBA stars I've seen, though the big heads do look a little out of place on the equally outlandish bods.

    You won't touch your PlayStation or N64 again.

    (The engine) not only renders huge environments and complex architectures with nary a hiccup, but can also handle massive amounts of enemies and, in general, kick your ass without a second thought.

    Looks so good that it took me a minute to figure out that the opening computer-generated cut scene was over and the gameplay had begun. The transition between cut scenes and gameplay is swift and seamless.

    It combines several of my interests: kooky Victoriana, bloody fairytales, lush writing, bratty girls with knives, and talking cats.

    At three in the morning, I realized that having me write about GT2 is pretty much like giving Stone Temple Pilots' frontman, Scott Weiland, a gig as a heroin reviewer.

    Quite basically, this game rocks... Plus it lives up to the peak level of story, animation, and performance that is expected from an adventure game these days, so it isn't just sitting back on its new control's gimmick value.

    A tense, violent, hyper-realistic, team-oriented online gaming experience like no other. Viva la Half-Life!

    The most visually innovative and stunning game to hit any console. Oh yeah, it's a lot of fun too.

    • 90 Critic Score
    More a series of interlinked tale-telling vignettes than a proper blast-'em-up, the small-screen heir to Austin Powers' legacy is nonetheless one of the finest offerings in years.

    Realistic season mode, improved graphics, and all of the WWF drama that you could wish for in a console game.

    The graphical update this gives the game is mighty impressive, even if it takes away a little bit of GT2's character.

    Whether it's eluding the NYPD's helicopter force's raining of missiles down at you or evading the powerful grasp of Venom, the action is relentless.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The DC controller's scheme is only adequate, and the number of pauses that occur during online play is too many.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A beautiful meld of both action and strategy that seems to hold a little something for everyone.
