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

    Fast and furious action, great sound and gameplay -- it's the best 2D fighting game ever made.

    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.

    Is it the best 2D fighting game around? Those that argue that "Marvel vs. Capcom 2" or "Street Fighter Alpha 3" are better forget that it's basically the same engine. SFIII:DI will put you to the test with better AI and harder opponents.

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

    There's not a lot holding DOA3 back from becoming X-Box Game of the Year: it's that good. Every time you pop this disc in you're instantly amazed by the leaps and bounds that the X-Box engine has achieved.

    This is one of those games that just screams out fun whenever you play, even though technically apes aren't the same as monkeys. An absolutely essential part of any platform fan's collection.

    The sounds of Max Payne double the intensity of the game. From the beginning monotone opening to the deadpan, and deadly noirish conversations that Max has with the enemies, the game is a treat for the ears as well as the eyes.

    Lara herself is well designed and animates superbly, whether it be while shooting a gun, traversing treacherous mountain ledges or swimming through violent rapids.

    Great graphics, excellent sound, solid control, and lots of replayability. Eons of fun!

    Easily one of the best (if not the best) racing games on the Dreamcast. It's certainly the best GT-style circuit racer on the platform.

    As good as "Tomb Raider 1" was, 2 is twice as good!
    • 86 Metascore

    Steeped in style, sleight in substance, and superior in overall satisfaction.

    All said and done, Knockout Kings 2002 does not have a contender in sight, leaving it as the definite king of the ring.

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

    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.

    One of the best wrestlers on the PlayStation, Smackdown 2 puts all the other jabronis to shame with its quick action, cool graphics, and exciting game play.

    Cute, funny and continuously enchanting - it's what good gaming is all about.

    Graphically, this could well be the PlayStation's finest hour. The lighting effects are nothing short of incredible, with each environment sporting realistic and amazingly effective touches on each surface.

    Graphics are very impressive; this is one area that R4 totally rules over Gran Turismo. The effects and graphics are nothing short of mind-boggling.

    The extensive Franchise Mode (which includes this year’s Houston Texans) is the best in any football game ever, and the Madden Cards once again hype the game’s replayability.

    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.

    It has great competitive factions, a large line-up of diverse skaters, and some of the most mind-blowing, thumb-numbing, breathtaking tricks yet seen on a console snowboarding game.

    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.

    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.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    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.

    The kudos system, overall structure, and addictive qualities of this game easily transcend any minor flaws.

    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.
