    The only problem with F1 2001 is that you have to really love F1 racing. If you don’t you’ll find this game boring.

    The purists choice for outstanding baseball action...a fun, authentic, and accurate baseball sim.

    Despite the rubber-band AI, this is still a fun, addictive kart racer.

    The game has no direction or purpose, and its one of the few games that seems so dull on the PlayStation 2.

    PC gamers who have had no prior exposure to this game will definitely want to take a look, as this is still the same great game it always was.

    Packs more playability into one disc than some RPGs do with three. A true sleeper.

    It's one of those simple games that you know you'll be coming back to long after the latest racers have run out of gas.

    The beautiful rendering of the cars, the colorful tracks, and the responsive controls all come together in one cool, portable package.

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

    The music is really good, and the challenge is incredibly hard.

    A great action game, a competitive extreme sports title, and the best bike racing game ever made for the PlayStation.

    A game that’s easy to get into and fairly simple to play but that’s heavy on both strategy and skill – a rare combination.

    A must if you want a great portable fighting game.

    Best of all, the enemy's AI is fairly ruthless and will put up a good fight.

    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.

    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.

    The only real problem is a distinct lack of creativity.

    The graphics are superb for a GBA game, with colorful characters that take up a good chunk of the screen, and bright, detailed backgrounds.

    Be forewarned: This game could grow on you, one of the subtlest treats for the Playstation.

    It does what every great game should -- keeps you guessing as to what might happen next.

    One of the things that made Doom so much fun back then, and still carries over today, is that feeling that danger (and madness) lay around each corner.

    If you're a friend-less hermit living in the mountains of Montana you may not get the full experience from this game, but if you've got people to play with, it's easy to overlook Timesplitters' flaws.

    This would be considered a mission-pack add on in the PC world, but for fans of the series, it's a great new game with additional elements that enhance an old, but stable, gaming engine.

    It’s a fast and fun (and accurate) basketball game with more additions and improvements than ever before. It’s also the best basetball game on the PS One.

    This is the best simulation of NASCAR racing yet.

    Once you get the hang of things, Wetrix can be an addictive and fun puzzler. Don't feel bad if you can't be bothered to dip your toe in, though - you won't be the only one.

    A ton of alternative playing options (two-player versus, puzzles, timed play, and more), and hidden characters to unlock, so the game never gets boring.

    There are only about three really great N64 first-person shooters, and this is one of those three.

    Although there are a few minor annoyances, it’s unbelievable speed, mind-blowing tracks, and great upgrade selection make this a definite sleeper hit for racing fans.

    It's a more in-depth game than High Heat, which is why All Star moves slower and the games seem longer.
