    • 80 Critic Score
    A deep, well written, good-looking and designed game that comes close to the greatness of any of the games it imitates.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It allows anyone to be a kid all over again and create some imaginary world where everything is to your liking, the place where you would really like to go and have fun.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s not much here that will entice replayability once the game’s numerous secrets have been uncovered.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Everything that NHL 2003 does “NHL 2K3” can perform just as well, except for the fancy presentation aspects that EA Sports has polished to near-perfection (and which Sega Sports is still learning to implement properly).

    Though its graphics aren't as pretty as "Burnout 2's," HP2 delivers the goods: intense races, cool real-life cars being driven at law-breaking speeds, hundreds of virtual miles of terrain over which to race, a pumping soundtrack.

    Every single kung-fu move that I had hoped I could perform, I can. Every single slow motion cinematic I had hoped would be present, certainly is. And every single story detail I could have hoped for is present and accounted for.

    This is an above-average port that tries to compensate for its reduced difficulty and average visuals with minor improvements (new level, binoculars, etc.) that have dumbed-down the XBox version’s stealth-reliant gameplay a little bit.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Graphics, control, strategic thought, brawn and even the so-cheesy-you-get-used-to-it rock music and voices work in tandem for an intense experience unlike any other on PS2.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A tongue-in-cheek and over-the-top brawler that conclusively proves wrestling games can be fun when gameplay and quality control take precedence over star power or licenses.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Good graphics, solid controls, decent sound (including purposefully-campy English dialogue) and mucho replayability (especially from its two-player mode) make Wrath of Heaven the best Tenchu game of the trilogy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A really nice mix of "Powerstone" and "Rampage."
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The destruction-oriented Hulk levels, killer graphics, good audio and a wealth of bonus goodies, however, make "The Hulk" a blast to complete.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If they can continue this pattern we just might have the best soccer game next year.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Speaking of gameplay this is where the title just can't manage to break out from the norm. What we needed here was something full of new ideas, not just a revolution of the ideas already given in previous games.

    While R-Type Final is the hardest of the hardcore shooters, most gamers may find it too hardcore. However, for the series' already steady fanbase, Final provides a solid, exciting, and most of all... fun, experience that's well worth the $29.99 price tag.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily the best NCAA basketball game in ages.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Unapologetic about being old-school hard... It’s a rude awakening to how soft and cuddled the masses have become toward games that demand as much from them as they do from the game-makers.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Deeper-than-a-Bible-sermon battle commands, philosophical in nature, cinematic by choice and at times infuriatingly self-absorbed (non-interactive 45 min. cutscenes??!!), Monolith Software’s first chapter in what will be a multi-chapter episodic RPG arc has to be admired, reviled and thoroughly experienced from start to finish.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Control is dead-on perfect, and the gameplay is so polished and fun that it compensates for the somewhat lackluster graphics/sounds and the absence of customizable options.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even someone like me, a NASCAR illiterate, has to profess amazement at how much fun running around in circles trying to beat 43 other drivers can be.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best tennis game ever to appear on a Sony system...Add online support next year Sega, and you've got yourself a killer-app.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Awesome combat and a beautiful set of landscapes to do it in put the beat ‘em up back on the road to recovery.
    • 85 Metascore

    If you’d rather play a fast and offensive football game over a slower more realistic one, NFL2K2 is for you. It’s the fastest and easiest to play of the big two. If not for the sloppy AI, it might actually be better than Madden.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Once you complete each campaign mission, the game unlocks an alternate campaign that allows you to switch sides and fight for the forces of evil! How cool is that to get to be the bad guy after you save the day!
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily the best console Simpsons game ever. Considering that the lot it’s in is comprised primarily of crap that isn’t surprising but the fact that I like this game better than Crazy Taxi might be.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    About as visually-appealing, user-friendly, fun and deep as Koei can make a strategy simulation without watering-down the formula completely, which makes it ideal for newcomers to the genre or the "Kessen" universe.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    How willing you are to invest time and effort into mastering Guilty Gear X2’s intimidating (and deep) list of moves and potential combos will determine whether this will be a casual distraction or your next obsession.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Music has never sounded better than MTV Music Generator 2 which pleases us. Do yourself a favor and expand your own horizon by giving this a try.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Incredibly fun physics which give you the feeling of actually riding on a waterbased vehicle.

    The boys and girls at Black Isle Studios put over 100,000 hours into the development of Dark Alliance II and it shows. Dark Alliance II is a great experience to enjoy either alone or with a friend and greatly improves upon almost every feature available in its 2001 predecessor.
