    Dino Crisis 2 serves up plenty of heart-thumping mayhem, awesome graphics and sound, and enough dinosaur bloodlust to keep even the most experienced dino hunters on their toes.

    A first-person shooter that has you shooting Nazis in the head for a better score.

    Next time, the developers should do something about the voice acting and maybe add a more intuitive real-time mouse-swing system, and then we'd have an undisputed champion.

    Solid graphics, fast and furious gameplay, and awesome online multiplayer battles make this an arcade racing title that should not be overlooked.

    The lack of mouse support is both shocking and somewhat unforgivable... (yet) EMI will provide hours of intelligent and silly gameplay.

    Perhaps the biggest complaint about EQ over UO is the utter lack of an interesting dynamic economy and the structures UO allowed you to build before they ran out of room.

    The architecture is incredibly designed, ranging from vast, open structures to dark, claustrophobic corridors. The story is intriguing. Its deep, unexpected twists and turns will draw players deep into the game, delivering a rich experience.

    Although the fundamental Tekken formula has changed a little, the mind-blowing graphics will draw in even the most casual gamers.

    The true star of the game is its speed. Never before in a racing game has the feeling of cruising at over 100 MPH been so perfectly conveyed.

    Fantastic and beautiful third-person action among three races, with a wonderful sense of humor.

    It's extremely satisfying to take the U.S. to the World Cup finals (hey, a guy can dream, can't he?), Arsenal to the top of the English Premiere League, or simply play out bitter rivalries like Celtic vs. Rangers, or heck, Chicago Fire versus Deportivo la Coruna...could happen....

    Dazzling graphics couple with intense and addictive play.

    The high degree of difficulty is matched only by the high degree of bad music.

    The only real problem here is that the game still plays a bit too fast.

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

    In terms of options, "Blitz 2000" rests on its laurels, though a four-player simultaneous mode may be enough for die-hards to pick this one up.

    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.

    One of the most visually stunning games for the deuce. This, coupled with engrossing arcade gameplay, kept me coming back for more. It's a must-have for your PS2 library.

    The empire component, while solid, is a little bit shallow, the AI is weak in crucial areas, and the game is also buggy on some systems.

    A beautiful meld of both action and strategy that seems to hold a little something for everyone.

    The game's lack of speed and overwhelming number of moves make it less of a draw for non-fans, but fans will be thoroughly floored.

    Although Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix suffers from minor control problems, the amusing and entertaining storyline, as well as the impressive graphics, made me want to come back for more.

    Although Sega GT does indeed look awesome -- better than any PlayStation game could possibly look -- it's nowhere near pushing the envelope of the hardware capabilities the way "Gran Turismo" does on the PSX.

    It came as quite a surprise to me when Rush 2049 was not only a blast to play, but offered up an impressive amount of replay value as well.

    All in all, this is another fine addition to the genre, but how many can one gamer take?

    If the storyline were simplified, the objectives more clearly stated, and the technical glitches ironed out, then this game would be an absolute classic.

    If you're tired of the same old shoot-this-guard, find-this-key, flip-this-switch gameplay, give "MDK2" a shot -- you won't be disappointed.

    A guaranteed sleeper hit. While its edutainment background seems at odds with the subject material, these two worlds collide rather splendidly.

    Featuring powerful graphics and intense gameplay, CFS2 makes up for all the mistakes of its predecessor, and then some.

    The aspect of contacting and interacting with demons was also an element that I fully embraced. It broke the monotony of simply killing and killing in order to gain experience points.
