    What it lacks in flash, longevity and accuracy to the “Contra” universe (no weapon pick-ups??!!) Shattered Soldier compensates for with old-fashioned, thumb-blistering, bang-your-head-against-the-wall hard shooting antics of the 2D and 2.5D variety.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Every bit as good as the recent "Resident Evil Outbreak" game if not better in some ways.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In the end yours truly would rather park his limited NASCAR interest in Tiburon’s garage than Monster Games'.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It features one mother of an expanded Create-a-Wrestler mode, a deep Season mode and almost as many gameplay modes as there are wrestlers.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Emphasizes flashy visuals, corporate sponsorships and ease-of-use over the seedy aspects of street racing. The competitors’ AI goes from dumb to aggressive in the blink of a tail light too.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's Midway's over-the-top-and-drop-dead-funny execution of the genre's conventions, however, that give the game a dose of personality that makes it stand out.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its deep plot, decent battle system and engaging character personalities make Suikoden III an easy choice for players that value story-telling prowess over flashy visuals.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Competent but uninspired, Armored Core Nexus continues to cater to a dedicated following of PS2 owners that milk its customization features for all they’re worth.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A middle-of-the-road rally game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very good strategy game that could use some better animations and easier control.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has some bad control issues, but comes with plenty of boxers, solid AI, a new faster engine and some of the best boxing graphics yet.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The bottom line is, if you liked "Shinobi" then you'll most likely love Nightshade. With more unlockables and selectable difficulty's than it's predecessor (and replay value as well), Nightshade is a good buy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun game but its not "Ridge Racer." "Ridge Racer" always complimented the "GT" series well but with this game its two trying to be in the same vein.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Why Capcom didn’t name this survival horror game "Clock Tower 4" is beyond me. Other than the reduced gore, single location and reliance on canine companion Hewie to save Fiona’s backside at every turn this is basically the same game.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you can tolerate the outdated-looking frosting, the gameplay cake underneath "HHB 2002" is yummy-enough to be had (visual warts and all).
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Where Revenge drops the ball somewhat is in the surprising lack of stuff to do or find once all the racing circuits and characters have been unlocked.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good game all-around and a great continuation of the planned six-part saga, Episode II still falls short of what you'd expect from a supposed epic.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With solid multiplayer, a deep rich customizable single player experience and true next generation graphics, EA Sports first PS2 F1 game succeeds in many areas.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not quite the "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" equal but still worthy of your summertime void.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very amusing and well-designed first-person shooter that suffers from outdated graphics and an unfriendly control scheme, but also remains surprisingly engaging.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You’ll also likely be mad and happy that Tecmo added much needed new stuff while also butchering some aspects of its predecessor that should have never been touched.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A handful of extra modes that cater exclusively to the hardcore DDR player and some meaningless FMV extras makes DDRMAX 2 a rather poor evolution from last year’s DDRMAX prequel.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Deceptively simple and incredibly engaging.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Survives its transition from PC to PS2 with its gameplay depth and well-acted voices intact, but with its graphics severely chopped and its control scheme compromised by the Dual Shock 2 button layout.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Safe and well-executed, but predictable and innovation-free.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The ATV handles amazingly realistic and the ability to performs wheelies and other tricks makes it quite a joy.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The game generally just tightens up many spots to make it a contender this year. Of course with other offerings out there, 989 still might be your third or fourth.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Those of us that want our sports games lengthy, deep and polished to near perfection, however, will be dunking balls over at Sega Sports’ courtyard with "College Hoops 2004" while EA Canada gets its act together.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A collaboration of love for gamers who have been fanatics of either or both series.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Deep-enough to pass itself as a sim but accessible-enough to be considered arcadey, Bass Fishing Duel manages to walk the fine line between both without alienating either camp.
