    "Twisted Metal 2" is light years beyond Small Brawl. Small Brawl is more akin to a Gameboy Advance game than a full fledged PSX SKU.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Not even at the reduced price of $25-30 should you waste your time and money on such a rehash.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Despite unresponsive controls and average graphics riddled with a jerky frame-rate (elements that would normally kill any racing game’s enjoyment) Blazin’ Trails delivers a surmountable and fun but challenging struggle for first place.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    In the end this probably should have been called Generic Bass, a more fitting term.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The real problem here is that unlike the competition, Sony hasn't really added anything of value for those who consistently purchase the series year after year.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A decent light gun shooter that's much too similar to its dated predecessors (the original "Time Crisis", "Virtua Cop 1 & 2", etc.) to be worth more than a rental.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Although its graphics are dated and its sounds poor MIDI-like compositions, your imagination and your patience are the only limits to what you (and only YOU) can achieve in the game.

    Let's hope Traveller's Tales takes note with Crash 4 and helps all of us forget about Crash Bash.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It's merely coasting on the competency of an engine that's good-enough to recycle last year's features without improvements, rule changes or a playable Michael Jordan.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    An evening-long game that's high on production values but low on replayability.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Those turned off by the awkward controls and odd viewpoint won't like this one either but it's the only game where you can be this bad. Too bad that experience wears tiredly.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Untold Legends’ lengthy single-player campaign and multiplayer options compensate somewhat for its underwhelming sound, forgettable story and mindless hack-and-slash gameplay.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It falls squarely in the middle of fun and boring as it's both. The repetitive nature of the game just takes out any fun that might have occurred in the beginning.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    For a reasonably well-made, cheap, good-looking and great-sounding FPS based on a license ‘inspired’ by the hit motion picture series, this “MIB The Series” game delivers the goods.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Unfortunately Toy Story Racer does everything just about dead-average.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Had Konami not chosen to foolishly peruse an automatic switching control scheme, "ESPN MLS Gamenight" could have snuck into the 'must have' category of a "Virtua Tennis" or a "Fox Soccer '99" (kidding!).
    • tbd Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A competent but no-frills rendition of a racing event that puts as much emphasis in the long time it takes to get ready to race as in the all-too-quick races themselves.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Devoid of the humanity and humor of its motion picture counterpart, the leads of Lilo & Stitch on PSOne might as well be item-collecting and enemy-hopping albino alligators or mentally-challenged snails.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    [It] isn't for kids of the easily-frustrated, and should be tackled only by the hardcore puzzle nut that wants "Lemmings", "The Sims" and an average Japanese living arrangement rolled into one supremely hard PSOne nutcracker.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Not a bad game, just dated and uninspired.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Guess what mom and dad? A bone without meat will still make Jr. crave the addictive gameplay and cutting-edge visuals that the PSOne simply can't squeeze anymore.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    I can't see long-term value on a game that doesn't offer enough customization options or a Franchise mode to make it a lifetime investment.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    It's a mediocre game that never gets too bad to advise a complete avoidance.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    This game will turn your 32-bit console into an NES, but the control and two-player fun that can be had with All-Star Slammin' D-Ball more than makes up for its outdated appearance and MIDI-like soundtrack.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    ShootOut 2003's outdated graphics, mediocre controls and workmanlike gameplay have some merits as companions on a road trip spinning in a PSOne w/LCD Screen. $29.99 is a bit steep a price to pay for a roster update though.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    $10 more would get you "Gran Turismo 2" though, and, if you don't have that one yet, trust us it's worth the difference in price.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Raw is exactly what the name implies, raw. The game is confusing, boring and frustrating.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If “PTO IV” and “ROTK VII” rock your boat then this is a must-own PS2 DVD.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not even a framey and slightly-buggy engine (collision detection issues galore!) can prevent this title from being a must-own recommendation for Star Wars buffs.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While not deep modewise, I found the game charming enough to keep my interest and ultimately give me enjoyment.
