    Fast, slick, pretty and still fun despite only being related to the original “WipeOut” series by name, “Fusion” is as good as off-line futuristic racing can feel and play on the PS2 right now.

    'Best Damn Shooter on a Console.'
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Short and easy, but also polished and action-packed violent fun for the adult PS2 owners who haven't yet played "Code Veronica."
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    STILL a force to be reckoned with, it's just not the must have game of the year it has been in the past. Namco needs to focus heavily on "Soul Calibur 2" for a while and let Tekken take a vacation.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The controls are tight, the graphics good and the hidden stuff down by the Krypt ranges from junk to outstanding.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rough, outlandish and a hell of a lot of fun.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The eye-candy quota is attractive enough to make this a must-own for rally racing nuts (like yours truly), but “V-Rally 3” still holds on to its title as the best racing game of its kind on PS2 (and XBox as well).
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cel shading has never been as underplayed and better used in a PS2 game as in this one, and even the English dub and J-pop tunes fit like a glove with The 2nd Runner's anime-inspired universe.

    Zeke is a cool character and the gameplay is enjoyable enough for a good weekend of gameplay.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Features the most dramatic and gameplay-enhancing improvements yet seen in this series.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The fielding, hitting and baserunning still play second-fiddle to the intimidating pitcher interface though.
    • 81 Metascore

    What Bam!'s 2001 release "Driven" should have, but wasn't: a good racing engine tied to an unfolding story.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s a bit on the short side, but “Sly Cooper” also looks good, controls great and sounds pleasant-enough to deserve its own BGM soundtrack.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Delivers the goods big time despite not delivering the ‘Revolution’ its title promises.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The enhanced visual eye-candy (prettier explosions you won’t find on another light gun game, PS2 or otherwise) and solid frame-rate more than compensate for the now-grating voices and repetitive music that share speaker space with some pretty cool shotgun blasts.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though expensive and gimmicky because of its headset peripheral Karaoke Revolution’s pitch/length interface is forgiving enough (depending on the selected difficulty) to let even those of us cursed with shitty voices get into the virtual act and carry a tune.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Everything that the overhyped “Malice” (from the same developer) and repulsive "Catwoman" aren't.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Lacks soul or a reason for being other than cashing on a popular trend. Black Box’s follow-up to "NFS: Hot Pursuit 2" goes through its racing, style, licensing and online motions with a mechanical predictability that wasn’t present in either "Burnout 2" or "Midnight Club II." It’s still a top-notch arcade racer, but there’s definite room for both improvement.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By far the best espionage title available on any platform.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although it's a bit on the short side with only 11 missions and a tutorial mode, there are multiple ways to go about doing things which offers up some pretty hefty replay value.

    Just don’t expect to like Samurai Warriors if you’ve had your fill of (or never liked) "Dynasty Warriors".
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good choice for the casual baseball gamer who focuses more on multiplayer and online versus solid deep franchise play.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With tons of unlockable content, a unique cooperative play mode, a behind the scenes look at the making of the game, an excluisve music video from the band COLD, and an overall gameplay experience that will keep you coming back for more... what's not to love?
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hard as hell, scored like an epic sci-fi movie soundtrack, tighter control than Billy Joel’s car and more gorgeous than a dozen Victoria’s Secret models put together; Gradius V is a real man’s shooter (sorry ladies).
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its mix of "Dynasty Warriors" gameplay, "Starship Troopers"-type setting (complete with umpteen million giant bugs to kill) and interesting characters Crimson Sea 2 is an above-average hack-and-slash adventure.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A huge improvement in the controls and accessibility along with some killer tunes makes this remix a good time for those who love being creative. This once again is a party tool just screaming to be used.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The huge number of new golf courses and playable characters, along with slightly-improved control and user-friendly online modes (not to mention the returning golfers/courses from “HSG 3”), make Hot Shots Golf Fore! the best installment of the series yet.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Better-looking, more polished, funnier and longer (much longer) than its predecessor.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game's only original feature, a morale meter that affects gameplay based on a player's on-the-field performance, comes across as a tacked-on gimmick.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ironically, Deception's Konquest mode that the developer has been pushing so much is the games only real weak point.
