    While on the highest difficulty the realism is still a little overwhelming, there are many driving aids to keep you on the track and keep the game fun.

    Simply the best hockey game ever released.

    The seamless controls and extensive levels can only be matched by the spectacular graphics and superior sound.

    Believe it or not this is one of the best of the PS2 launch titles, and one of the best puzzle games anywhere.

    Although "Fantavision" is more colorful and uses more graphic power than Super BaM, this game is far more addictive, and a lot easier to play in two-player mode.

    It is without a doubt the best sim-style boxing game on the PS2, and it makes "Ready 2 Rumble 2" look even sillier. But if you're expecting or are looking for a Rumble type game, steer clear of this title.

    One of the best looking fighters so far for the PS2, it eclipses "Street Fighter EX3" and "Tekken Tag Tournament" for beauty.

    Once again, Madden leads the field in video game football, and as of right now, there’s no one near him in coverage.

    This game is now the standard by which all other games have to live up to this year. It’s a great game with some serious chilly thrills...CB2K1 snatches the crown from the hands of "SSX" thanks to speed and style.

    It’s a fantastic college football game, and as of yet, completely without a collegiate equal.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s a rare game that combines style and simple, brilliant play, and a very worthy choice for King of the PS2 platformers.

    If you were looking for the ultimate NASCAR game, you’ve found it.
    • 66 Metascore

    The move to complete 3D freedom of movement and real-time environments adds a whole new dimension to the game, and finally makes it feel like it is a game rather than simply a series of static images and mental puzzles.

    Just the right mix of action, role-play, and strategy.

    It doesn't take a skateboarding fan to be a Tony Hawk fan -- this is just a fun game that PC gamers won't want to miss.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s a well-crafted and loving tribute to the original, but it definitely spices up the action with a new millennium look and feel.

    This is the best simulation of NASCAR racing yet.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Without a doubt the best flight sim available for a next-gen system. Ace Combat 04 shatters the competition.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    An instant classic.

    Sam (sets itself apart) by it’s sense of humor and easy to learn controls. It’s also one of the brighter shooters, with lots of outside and aboveground levels mixed in with all of the dungeon crawling.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Everything we could have hoped for – great new levels (with just a touch of the old levels left in), vastly improved graphics, and another great soundtrack.
    • 92 Metascore

    Essential. Brilliant.

    It may be a bit heavy on the micro-management, but if you’re at all interested in the God game genre, you’ll be hooked on this game for a long time.
    • 96 Metascore

    The way scientists and guards talk to you and each other, the huge stages that you can make a little bit more progress in each time you play, the absolutely amazing animation...it all adds up to a totally immersive gaming experience that makes everything else look quite shoddy in comparison.

    The first game was an undeniable classic that could easily be ruined in the wrong hands. We're here to tell you to pack those fears away in a box because this is the dream sequel.

    Some really sick stuff. The imagery and grotesque design of the enemies is disturbing, and the grainy film stock adds an element of brutal realism to an already upsetting game. Needless to say, we loved it...Not only disturbing and scary, it’s actually a lot of fun.

    If a copy of dis game should happen to fall off a truck somewheres in yas naybahood, pick it up. It's an offer you shouldn't refuse, capice?
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Without a doubt the most intriguing, most competent, and most encompassing game of the franchise. It's a great game, the best RPG the PS2 has to offer, and it does a good job of weaving story and structure together.

    This game will not be completed in a weekend – this is one of those rare games that will take a lifetime to play. Not a biggie – you won’t soon be bored with it.

    Fun, pure and simple - the scenarios and environments it's based on were paid for with blood, sweat, and tears. It's makes the game an honor to play.
