    • 51 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    There are simply too many issues that override the tidbits of "good" sprinkled throughout.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    There is no "The Life" or any career-mode variant present in the game, the NBA Replay mode is a novelty that wears thin, and the mini-games leave a lot to be desired.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Everything in place functions okay, but there’s not one single aspect of the game that excels in terms of quality, and there are just too many problems that ultimately cripple the overall package.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A serious franchise update. The game fails to impress on just about every level, and ironically enough, manages to stay fun and entertaining thanks to a fully realized online battle mode and the all-important vehicle alterations.

    • 84 Critic Score
    This is a much better version than the already-decent PS2 version, and is mostly identical to the Xbox 360 version (the only difference being the addition of those Sixaxis motion sensing gameplay controls), so if you've been looking for a great NHL title to slake your appetite, look no further.

    Atrocious gameplay. Avoid this one at all costs, unless you're a huge Gundam fan. A huge, huge fan who hasn't played a video game since Tetris. But even then, no promises.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Visually it does the job, albeit with a few minor quips here and there - but it does have a good frame rate to be thankful for, and that's imperative.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Exactly what it should be: a fun-filled romp down memory lane for the old-schoolers, and an entertaining glimpse into the past for the younger gaming class. Besides, one of the best new features is something we can all identify with- you can save.

    Deviations from past Final Fantasies may turn off some players, but this game is so classy, it’s like mouthwash for the nasty taste FFX/X-2 left in gamers’ mouths. It redeems a hallowed series which had begun to spiral into teeny-bopper, pop-idol-infested hell.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A definite upgrade, plain and simple. It may not be quite enough to summon new fans this late in the day, but that Story Mode and extra modes/content is always intriguing, regardless of whether or not you’re familiar with the franchise.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    Reservoir Dogs has more major flaws regarding the core gameplay, and because it takes a more direct and linear approach, can't cover up the minor problems with open-ended adventure.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    It's a well done port that runs superbly well on Sony's little unit.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    I never felt like it was particularly new or fresh in terms of gameplay mechanics, but it does tackle a setting and issues that rarely come up in the world of video games, because the industry, media, and (sadly) many gamers are too caught up in getting all googly-eyed over empty violence to appreciate when a game tries to rise above such shallow meanderings.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    It's too bad there was never much beyond the most basic of maneuvers, but the fact remains- just about anyone can pick it up and play the whole way through with little difficulty, and still have fun doing it.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Family Guy won't last you very long - maybe 4-6 hours - but for the most part, the ever-changing palette of gameplay styles and top-notch Griffin comedy remains appealing throughout.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A lot of the game's potential falls flat in the face of occasional mediocrity and blandness, which is in turn offset by bright spots that sometimes pop up during the course of your adventure.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Whether you picked up the stellar "Okami" or not, give it’s B-game cousin a shot if you’re a fan of challenging games with great mechanics. Oh yeah, the music rules, too!
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    An appealing introductory sequence, a huge selection of fighters, multiple and diverse gameplay modes, the option to create and train your own character, and several destructible arenas just waiting to get demolished.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    They do a good job placing you in the Scarface atmosphere, and Tony Montana is as big a badass as ever. With all that music, with all that attitude, and with all that charisma and panache, it can't help but hook every avid fan of the movie.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    Just Cause is fun for a little while, and if you get sucked into the atmosphere and style, you just might finish it. But there are too many pitfalls that routinely impede your enjoyment.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    There is a giant amount to get used to, but if you take to the style and the atmosphere, you just might lose yourself in role-playing bliss for many, many hours.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    In the end, this title really isn’t half bad. If only beating Billy senseless during the end credits wasn’t the most fun we had with the game.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Simply one of the best games of the generation and I’d even wager to put it up with some of the best of all time.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    This game just doesn't have the shine, polish, or refinements we should expect from a third game in a franchise. To be brutally honest, the Samurai Warriors series was never very good, and unfortunately, that's the way it's going to stay.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    With sub-par control, a story that could be great but gets lost in a sea of loose ends, and very uninspired, tedious, and infrequent combat, Rule of Rose falls well shy of the intended mark.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    NASCAR 07 is, quite simply, another NASCAR game. There isn't anything too special about it or anything that makes it stand out, but then again, there also isn't anything to really get in a twist over.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    It’s not a must-play gem due to too many easily noticeable flaws, but Yakuza’s positives greatly outstrip any negatives. And if you’re a fan of a good story, look no further.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Ultimate mode would test even the best players to their limits. I say this because the entry price is $39.99, which is deserved, but not appropriate for those who’ll get frustrated just trying to make it through the first level. But if you’ve ever had late-night liaisons with a lady dressed in black leather and cracking a whip, then you’ve probably already bought it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    It’s a fantastic game, to be sure, but it’s catering to a very specific set of gamers.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Just a completely average game.
