    It's still a very good game once you learn to live with its shortcomings, and I wouldn't suggest that any THPS addict shy away from buying it, but don't expect THPS on two wheels.

    While the camera problem cannot simply be swept under the rug, it doesn't destroy the game's overall playability and replayability (getting the Symbiote Spidey outfit is a blast).
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The 24 mini-games that make up the whole present a pretty good cross-section of every gaming style imaginable. They're all handled well.

    More scenarios, more themes, more shops, more fun.

    While the task of rebuilding the village is fantastically addictive, the repetitive gameplay is a bore.

    Hellish steering, steep difficulty and satanic AI. How it manages to be fun despite this boggles the mind.

    The first thing that should be done is to fix the frame rate problem. Next, throw some cops in there -- after all, I am breaking the law.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Fresh graphics, tight controls, and completely addictive gameplay make this a definite must-have title. To sum it up in one word, it's smugglelicious!

    It is with out a doubt the best real-time strategy game on the market today. The multifaceted game play and shear volume of missions should keep you battling for spice until your eyes turn blue.

    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.

    The super-sugary-sweet music and the cutesy characters are enough to bring you to tears.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The combat aspect could stand another tweak or two, but the intriguing story -- a blend of creepiness and conspiracy--keeps these discs in the console until the final credits run.

    • 85 Critic Score
    The first game on the PS2 that has made me look forward to owning one of my own.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game's depth and challenge factors are found sorely wanting. But what's on display isn't bad, remains perfectly replayable, and outfoxes the competition by a long shot.

    This new release is not to be overlooked as an excellent continuation of a classic and fun series.
    • 79 Metascore

    Sporting sharper, smoother graphics, and a few new odds and ends, fans of the RE series who haven't tromped through the many PlayStation iterations will appreciate this conversion.

    The graphics aren't quite up to par, but the game makes up for it with tons of innovative and enjoyable missions, excellent physics, and enough planes and customization options to please even the most demanding flight-simulation fans.

    The overwhelming production of this game immersed me in the story. So, when I finally tore myself away from the one-player game to give the online multiplayer a try, I quickly realized that Starlancer had silently blown a huge hole in the side of my head.

    It's got a great golf engine, loads of options, replay value, and offers a serious challenge without taking itself too seriously.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great visuals coupled with great atmosphere and music makes this a must-have for fans of the genre.

    The collision physics make flipping pedestrians over your car seem realistic, as well as barbarically satisfying.

    Much like Nell Carter's thighs, the courses are large and in charge.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Players expecting next-generation gameplay to accompany the update in the graphics may find themselves a bit disappointed. But if mind-numbing powerslides pulled off in polygonal heaven is your thing, then RRV does indeed fire on all cylinders.

    I'm not saying that the 2001 version is a bad game. It's just one that suffers from the same engine that has been tried over and over again for the lifespan of the series.

    • 85 Critic Score
    A unique, humorous, inventive, challenging, and highly addictive action-puzzle game. High replay value, terrific multiplay.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    We deserved stronger gameplay, better AI, better graphics, and better physics.

    Cool, complex, and full of action, Earth 2150 extends the tradition of classic sci-fi RTS warfare with a few new twists.

    "Heavy Metal" magazine is known, well known in fact, for way-over-the-top action, violence, and gore... There is none of that here.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Certainly a feast for the eyes, but questionable AI and control issues keep it from instant-classic status.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The best new feature is the school... There's no more need for those huge strategy books--this mode covers everything and reinforces it in a way no book could.
