    A slightly flawed masterpiece, but a masterpiece nonetheless.

    Grind until your wheels fall off, because that's what we do almost every single day.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Stunning 3D backgrounds, convincingly animated (to put it mildly) characters and superfluous effects are carried out in fine style with no hint of slowdown, all the while running in glorious high-res.

    Once you get the controls down, you're in for the greatest board meeting of your life.

    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.

    Joanna looks good and she knows it, with spectacular Ram-pak enhanced graphics.

    You watch in amazement as enemies dance and react to your gun fire, the AI gets progressively stronger throughout the game, with enemies that will avoid you and eventually out think you.

    Not enough for you? If this isn't the ultimate football game, you need to suit up and play for real.

    One can't go without mentioning the fantastic multiplayer mode. Unlike PC shooters, where ambush seems to be the name of the game, GoldenEye concentrates on fast, frantic fun. Everyone can see each other's screen, and radar is provided for additional assistance, so hiding is a virtual impossibility.

    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.

    Visually, Gran Turismo set new standards right down to the finest details including the brilliant lighting effects. And just wait till you see the replays - amazing.

    The game is nearly perfect, with stunning graphics, great sound, and controls that enhance rather than detract from the overall cinematic experience.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is a racing game – a good but flawed one, a technically masterful piece of work that still has not gotten the gameplay of racing against other drivers quite right. In some ways, it’s actually a step backwards from GT2.

    Those gamers new to the adventures of Link and Zelda may want to do some background work and play Ocarina of Time before they jump headfirst into Majora's Mask.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the best Advance games at launch...But you’d better be in for a learning curve – although a small one.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A triumph of style with a touch of whimsy, this Fantasy is the perfect finale to an era of PS RPG gaming.
    • 94 Metascore

    Quite possibly the game of the year – if you liked "Onimusha," then Devil May Cry will definitely possess you.

    Once again, Madden leads the field in video game football, and as of right now, there’s no one near him in coverage.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Simply, one of the best RPG's ever made, and one of the finest games for the PlayStation console.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The essential 3D first person multiplayer experience of our time.

    • 90 Critic Score
    The game lasts about 12 hours for the average player, but it is an action-packed ride the whole way. Definitely worth the cash.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A game that captures the essence of why most of us started playing games in the first place -- skill, speed, innovation and style, with gameplay that's as fun to watch as it is to play.
    • 94 Metascore

    It's not simply an all out brawl where the one who punches the fastest wins, but rather an elegant and more balanced fighting game, where knowing the combos is not enough - knowing when to use them and how to counter them counts for something as well.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Put simply, this is the best racing game you can get for yourself right now and is the sequel every Gran Turismo fan could have wanted.

    While it is sometimes glaringly obvious that this is scaled down, Alpha's famous speed and depth comes across perfectly. All the combos, special moves and ISM's are in place, as are the characters.

    What the hell is that ethernet modem for if you can't take the Hawk online? Because of that, this Hawk rates slightly lower than the PS2 version.

    SSX
    Stellar arcade-style fun and one of the best games for the PS2. It's only hampered by some mild slow-down and a steep difficulty curve.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Internet game play is also the game's biggest plus -- "Unreal Tournament" on the PS2 is still a one-player game.

    It's all the fun of the original in the palm of your hand.
