    But what Blue Planet did was to add elements of animation to the backgrounds, which are at once beautiful to look at and extremely distracting.

    A great action game – much better than the original.

    One of the better looking shooters around, with spectacular special effects, "Gunship" is a worthy contender for "Freespace"'s throne.

    Just what fans of the series had been waiting for, a solid game that's even more real than before.

    Once you've played a while, and realize that a full franchise mode is missing, along with create-a-player and free agency trades, you'll realize that Drive didn't drive hard enough to compete with 2K2 or Live.

    Either too easy or too hard, depending on the setting. You will seethe with frustration on the highest difficulty setting, and easily outscore opponents on the easiest setting. There is no in-between, which makes a great game really frustrating.

    You'll want to play the game with the Japanese voices and English subtitles on. It looks cool (like your playing a Kurosawa film),and the Japanese voice acting is far superior to the English voice acting.

    Shooting fans will love it, and Star Wars fans, too -- but hardcore gamers will wish something more original was piled on to this "Rogue Squadron" update.

    If you're a FIFA newbie and own nothing but a PSX, FIFA 2001 is by far the best soccer sim out there.

    Once again the AI needs tuning and the graphics need optimizing. Otherwise, though, this game is still as fun on the PS2 as it is on the PSX, and with the new range of customization options, you're sure to find a gameplay style you like.

    Hands down (pun intended) the benchmark for football games.

    This is one beautiful title to look at, despite the rather lackluster character designs.

    This is what a PlayStation to Nintendo 64 conversion should be - enhancing the original to make the most of the new host machine.

    Parents should strictly heed the Mature rating on this game – everyone else, take your shot. Literally.

    A definite improvement over the first 3D title in both control and camera viewpoint.

    This game rivals Tony Hawk for the Advance, and takes better advantage of the engine than the poorly tuned Mat Hoffman.

    The graphics look gorgeous.

    This is classic Ridge Racer that plays like a turbo charged (and ultra-cute) version of the original arcade game.
    • 91 Metascore

    For all its graphical splendor and high level of polish, the game’s inherent flaws are its high level of difficulty and relative lack of depth.

    This is a game you'll probably keep coming back to periodically even as the years progress -- its simplicity and charm will likely ensure it a lasting place in your game library.

    Although not terrible complicated or intricate, it’s still a great game with a good interface and lots of scary stuff.

    Brief, nonsensical, infuriating and exhilarating, this is the perfect antidote to bland wrestling games and sub-par RPGs. Sexy fantastic!

    It’s just a little too frustrating without adding anything that’s really all that new – the Crazy Hop doesn’t really fundamentally alter the game all that much, meaning the game feels more like a Crazy Taxi map add-on pack than anything else.

    While it's not going to set anybody's house on fire, it's a title with broad appeal that's as worthy of being a top launch title for the system, as the original Ridge Racer was.

    Fun, exciting, tough, and educational - don't let that last part scare you. By the time you realize you've learned something, there will be thousands of slain warriors at your feet.

    An awesome shooter with superb graphics, and the thumb-numbing game play is challenging but not too hard.
    • 82 Metascore

    Fluid handling, detailed cars and tracks, varying weather conditions, and an impressive 43 cars on the playing field all add a sense of depth to a game that was once known as the smallest niche in the race market.

    Its solid visuals, imaginative tracks, tight control, and over-the-top physics model make it a winner in the arcade racing genre.

    This is as close as GameDay ever got to Madden for the title of best Playstation football game ever.

    One of the best things about Train Simulator is that like its flying cousin, this is basically an open-source graphics and physics engine that anyone can expand on and add objects, trains, routes, and activities to.
