    It may not have the cult personality of the "Dance Dance Revolution" series but it definitely has hooks that are capturing.

    The game may seem easy and cute, however don't let it fool you. This is a seriously challenging game. A winner in our books regardless.

    Without the really well balanced online play I would have REALLY given this game a beating. However the multiplayer aspects continue to be a draw.

    Quite simply the most amazing game I have ever seen, and that does include "Madden 2001"... The real problems appear with the AI which is dumb as can be.

    A lot of fun, offers great music but could use a more sensitive, less frustrating controller.

    Not for little kids, senior citizens or the easily-discouraged, Dropship demands serious commitment and many hours before revealing its true worth. Once it grabs you though, Dropship makes "Ace Combat 4" and "Lethal Skies" come across as trainee rookie simulators.

    One of the best PS2 mech titles in the market today, one that stand head-and-shoulders above better-publicized competitors like TDK Mediactive’s “Robotech: Battlecry” and Bandai’s “Gundam: Federation Vs. Zeon."

    A fun and unique title that stands out from the crowd of sequels and me-too clones. Coupled with good gameplay and fantastic control and it's the first big hit for Take 2 on the PS2.

    A Grandia worth playing, it just fails to reach that level of Square.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With everything from killer combos, tons of unlockable content, and a mere forty dollar price tag, what's not to love?

    It’s a FUN and tight-controlling sim, whose full impact is held back by the awkward animation routines of the players on the court and the inane Waltonisms Mr. Bill gets away with uttering.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A unique trick system combined with beautiful graphic design are enough to give it a whirl. Difficult is the key word.
    • 74 Metascore

    If what you want is a sim, look elsewhere...It looks great, sounds great and most importantly plays great.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The more aggresive and less deep cousin of "Kessen" (the system's current champ for armchair generals who dig the strategy more than action, the exact opposite of "DW2"), and a fine way to kill an afternoon without having much to show for it.
    • 65 Metascore

    Tolerate the fog, put-up with the controller and live with the repetition of dying over and over again, and you too will be hooked.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Good-looking stuff even if what most gamers will recall from their time with Dragon Quarter is being blinded by the darkness and a PSOne-sponsored shade of the color brown.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    At less than a buck per game the 24 titles in this compilation are videogame royalty that more than earn their keep in gameplay worth though.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The graphics are mediocre and the level design too linear (and simplistic when it comes time to solve its puzzles), but the length of the quest and simple Zelda-inspired action (not to mention the worthy-of-its-own-movie-series soundtrack) entertain more than disappoint.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good-looking college football title that, despite being high on gameplay modes and playbook strategies, isn't quite as fine tuned to the sport it portrays as "NCAA Football 2003".
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Innovation is a word not in the minds of Namco developers, since they're too busy keeping the races fast, competitive and fun for gamers of all age.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Has a handful of minor flaws (the lead character's limited control over his 12-member mercenary team, PC-like graphic stutters, lackluster multiplayer mode, etc.) that prevent it from reaching the heights of immersion and addictive fun that characterized its spiritual predecessor, "Hitman 2."
    • 78 Metascore

    IT'S TOO DAMN EASY AND UNCHALLENGING.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This odd mixture of survival horror, atmospheric visuals, brain-dead puzzles and action clichés manages to come together despite itself, creating a PS2 exclusive that delivers more than the sum of its disparate parts.
    • 69 Metascore

    From a silly laugh track sound effect playing back when Scoob & Shaggy get into (or out of) trouble to the sight of obviously rubber-suit monsters nearby, “Night of 100 Frights” delivers the sights, sounds and goofy things that made the Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon such a timeless hit.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the most enjoyable (and expensive!) guilty pleasures of 2003 so far, but one that falls short of its predecessor’s ahead-of-its-time greatness.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Worth the forty bucks IF “Legaia 2” or “Suikoden III” left you hungry for more.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Learn to live with the darn “Tonight Show”-type BGM tunes, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2’s over-the-top madness will win you over as well.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun stuff for shooter fans starved for PS2-worthy eye candy, but it doesn't offer anywhere near the degree of excellence we've come to expect from the talented group of people over at Treasure.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is the very definition of 'niche' product, but one with enough gameplay depth (particularly betting on the outcome of races and creation of your own breed of champion horse) and visual splendor to make it worth a trip to the rental store.
    • 78 Metascore

    In the right frame of mind and with enough patience, "MGP2" is an absolute blast for players who want their racing semi-realistic, hard and with a convincing sense of virtual speed hitting their windshield (i.e. the TV screen).
