    A worthy companion piece to the regular DDR titles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fun reminder that quality RPG gameplay and good storytelling can easily survive technological transitions.

    After playing through the gorgeous levels, I couldn’t help but think that Z-Axis was becoming awfully close to being as good as Neversoft.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Sure, there's a little blood and the replays really show off some of the sport's unforgiving brutality, but it's only enough to warrant the game a Teen rating from the ESRB so parent's shouldn't have to worry about their warping their children's fragile little minds with this one.

    It spanks the crap out of "Gauntlet Legends" in depth while still having the hack ‘n slash a non RPG fan will be drawn to.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Lacks the true simulation aspects of PC titles, but at least the series now plays, sounds, looks and controls as close to perfection as humanly possible.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Rarely does a 3D action game become more fun to beat after its been completed a first or second time. That’s exactly what R&C and its truckload of gizmos delivers.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Takes the best of the first two games, skips that crapper of a third game, adds to the series ten-fold and once again threatens to turn your head into a nightmare hotel.
    • 80 Metascore

    The problem I found here is that swithcing between characters in your party and trying to control them all at once is pretty hard. It's nice that Enix and Tri-Ace added the option to choose but we feel that the standard is the way to go.

    The online play is fantastic, the new wall moves add to the arcade feel and the music simply rocks. I highly recommend this game!

    The best game in the series since the original. Online or off, the game has plenty of replay value, tons of weapons and cool levels and a player customization feature that rules. Don't be put off by the controls because they actually rock.

    What EA Sports' "NHL 2002" is to videogame hockey,..."PGA Tour 2002" has become to videogame golf: the simulation standard-bearer to beat.

    Had Jak II delivered a gameplay revolution as dramatic and massive as its graphics (BEST LOOKING ACTION PS2 GAME... EVER!), excellent sounds (which take into account non-English speaking players), buttery-smooth controls and solid interface this could have become the PS2 equivalent of "Super Mario 64."

    Red Faction joins the ranks of the PS2 triple-A titles. Solid control, a good story, an incredible atmosphere, and a long adventure make Red Faction an awesome package.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This classic next-generation action experience overflows with class and attention to detail, welcoming 80’s veterans and young newcomers into its pseudo-intellectual (!) interpretation of classic Greek motifs and 3D action platforming.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s graphics notwithstanding, this is THE PS2 title XBox and GameCube loyalists will jealously write angrily about to Santa in their Christmas letters.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    New modes, better AI and less of the floaty artificial feeling from 2001 makes Madden 2002 a football game for the ages. It's going to be hard for anyone to make a better pigskin game than this.

    If you can handle the intense trial and error style of gameplay, you'll more than likely love Rise to Honor.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The most fun I have had playing online as far as the first person shooter genre goes. This is one of those games you will want to have for sure just to see how good online play can be!
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While the single player game is basic and ultimately boring, the game more than makes up for that with its online play.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This may be the best single player experience (EA has) come up with yet.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The licensed rap music has got to go for "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005," please! Other than this licensing snafu by EA’s music department the 2004 edition of the prettiest, fun, complete (online play rules!) and user-friendly golf sim on the face of the planet is well worth the $50.

    To the poor souls of sports gaming without access to more powerful systems or used copies of last year's edition, "FIFA 2002" is an amusing and deep virtual prelude to the biggest sports tournament in the world.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We already have a great title here that is quite a surprise and should be on any "Crash Bandicoot" fan's list.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's one of the best, if not the best, basketball titles I have played on any system. That alone makes this one of the best purchases for your PS2 this year.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The closest an interactive experience has come to re-enacting the utter chaos and undeniable fun that is being a part of an ongoing epic battle in which you (alongside either a friend or a complete stranger online) play an important role.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Despite not going anywhere near as deep as it’s MLS brother, FIFA World Cup 2002 is simply a joy to play.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Uneasy control prevents the game from becoming a ten out of ten but we are still very pleased.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you are a fan of the series, NFS: HS is the second best in the series second only to the original 3DO version.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is about as good as most fighters, but it's basketball and it's online too!
