    Old-school graphics and unprecedented difficulty level make this one a loser for all but the most dedicated retro-game freaks.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A brilliant lesson in game making as well as in history--and like history, it repeats itself again and again and again.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Until SCEA sits down and actually works to iron out some of the game's bugs and takes steps to improve the realism, GameDay will be mired in Madden's shadow for many seasons to come.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    But for the feel of nostalgia bolstered by the still-capable technology of the PlayStation, this game can make you feel actual delight--something that's tough to do in these cynical times.

    Credit should be given to Infogrames for even producing a volleyball game, but Power Spike's a bit like getting sand in your shorts -- not much fun at all.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're looking for your first PSX golf title, this is the game for you. But if you're a veteran PGA Tour player, the 2001 edition of the series may not be worth the upgrade.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This game should have never left the training room.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A terribly average game, Chronicles is about jumping, falling, dying and reloading from the memory card every few minutes.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combination of the beautiful visuals, awesome sound effects, simple control, and hysterical power-ups really makes Looney Tunes Racing an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, the whole thing is noticeably short-lived.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Blocky graphics, a complete lack of challenges or fun mini-games, and really bad stabs at humor make this game a drag.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The lack of a franchise mode kills the replay value. The graphics are so-so.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The adrenaline-inducing arcade action makes up for the game's flaws.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    And if you're too cool for this stuff, hey, grow up and get over it, because you're missing out on a terrific game.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're looking to feel bored and frustrated, pick up Sonic Shuffle.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A spectacular arcade-style racing game with pretensions to realism that fall far short of other driving sims on the market. The unrealistic aspects of the game, however, are far overshadowed by an incredible presentation and visual touches galore.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Although the graphics and the sound effects could have been improved in some areas, there is one thing that remains a constant throughout the game: it is damn funny the whole way through.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Like fine wine or stinky cheese, Ms. Pac-Man just gets better and better as time goes by.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This game is excellent, although its predictable and simple story combined with average character designs and dialogue prevent if from becoming an instant classic.

    • 50 Critic Score
    In an attempt to please everyone, the game's standard may be that of the lowest common denominator. At least the book is included in the package.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    I liked this game simply because it's Star Wars, but also because it's a fun, if basic, combat title.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Has it turned out to be everything fighting fans had hoped and dreamed of? In a word, no. But the game is still a good fighter.

    • 90 Critic Score
    A tense, violent, hyper-realistic, team-oriented online gaming experience like no other. Viva la Half-Life!
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The lack of mouse support is both shocking and somewhat unforgivable... (yet) EMI will provide hours of intelligent and silly gameplay.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    If you like wall-to-wall bloody action in cool locales with some interesting puzzles and lots to do, Rune may be what you're looking for.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you enjoyed either "Delta Force I" or "II," you'll like this game as well. It is more of the same, with some gameplay, graphic, and multiplayer improvements.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even more tragic is the fact that there is no way for you to turn the tables and play as the Arachnids. I don't know about you, but I wanted to be the first kid on my block to suck a human brain out of a skull with a three-foot long proboscis.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Uninspiring and bland gameplay, load screens while racing (seriously), unresponsive control, and horribly outdated graphics.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It doesn't feel like you're playing pool, and these have got to be the most outdated-looking graphics seen on the PlayStation2.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tiger plays poorly and finishes last among this year's golf sims, and that's not the only flaw in this game's realism.
