    • 87 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    A hard, gritty adventure that should be enough to hold off the "MGS" cravings until the domestic release.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    Still shots don’t do justice to its clean interface and pretty graphics justice; Lumines has to be seen, played and heard to be fully appreciated.

    WWF Smackdown 2 know's its role and that is the best wrestler on the PSX.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    We can safely say that we highly recommend "Valkyrie Profile" as one of the PlayStation's best RPG's on 2000.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    While I still prefer "Vandal Hearts," this is still the best turn based strategy game on the market.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Exactly a remix. We are scoring the game the same as the new additions do not change the game's overall appeal. Both titles are equally well done but of course if you never played the first, then skip it and hit this one up.

    • 92 Critic Score
    Nearly as enjoyable as the original. Despite all the frustration, I kept returning for more of the Wheelman's exciting life. Tanner is certainly "da man"!
    • 74 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The kind of sequel that might disappoint many with its lack of change and innovation. At the same time it's a by the book sequel that continues the exciting play of the original.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The sound effects are horrible because they replaced a lot of Arcade sound effects with lower sampled and wimpy sounding effects. This is really the only downfall of this game, aside from the frame dropping.

    • 92 Critic Score
    Mirra stands as the best BMX game on the market.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    If you get into this one, it give you that same feeling you had from watching the cheesy 80's Ninja movies all over again, except for the embarrassing dubbing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    One of the finest efforts yet from Sony. This is truly a surprise in this day of next generation consoles.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Arc The Lad Collection is a love affair with the single most impressive packaging I've seen in ANY media, that includes music and DVD's.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The only requirements needed to have a blast playing Ridge Racer on PSP are (a) a pulse, (b) the skill to be competitive in a driving videogame (not everyone’s cup of tea) and (c) some historical perspective of what this series has meant to Sony in both sales and as a measuring stick of its then-new systems’ power.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    With multiple endings, secrets and hidden items you'll find replay value deep within the game.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The best asset of Madden 2002 is still its overall sense of providing the complete package for hardcore simulation fans as well as casual armchair quarterbacks or groups of up to eight football-mad NFL fanatics.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    With a price tag of $9.99, Take 2 has the best game released for the PS One in quite sometime. Even at a higher price this title could compete for fans who love fantasy, dungeon, gauntlet type play.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The story and writing is so strong that I easily forgot about the archaic graphics and even more primitive battle engine.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Everything from shooting a free throw to running the lane works well in the game. There's really not much to complain about this year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    This compilation’s been given enough bells and whistles (unlockable art gallery, redesigned interface, prettier graphics, remastered soundtracks, CG intermissions, etc.) to appeal to a whole new generation of gamers weaned on the series’ trademarked formula of turn-based battles and high-quality (for their time) production values.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A sequel so polished and far-improved over the year-old Burnout that the former looks like a PSOne engine compared to the latter. The music is crap though.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An absolute blast to play, especially with friends online or off. If you love action RPG's then I can't imagine you'd find a better one than this.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Perhaps it's the fine tuning of the controls, or the training section that changed my mind. Whatever it was, I totally am in love with EA Big's newest title.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Gameplay aside, Mercenaries is loaded with tons of unlockables such as the ability to play as Indiana Jones, as well as opening up new vehicles and weapons (like the portable airstrike). Now how cool is that?
    • 98 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Maybe the level design of the original wasn't so special to you but for us it's a step down.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Truly one of the best one-on-one online games of its generation.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    When it comes to delivering consistent and playable virtual simulations of what goes on in NBA courts across the nation, "Live 2002" for PSOne is 'The One' (sorry Jet Li!).
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    NHL 2002 has finally unseated "NHL '94" as the only hockey game I would actually fight with other players over a controller in an eight-man multiplayer match.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A solid realistic arcade experience that has surpassed any of the other sports titles Midway touches.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With all of the variety and unlockable content, you'd be hard-pressed to find a game more gut-wrenchingly intense and disturbing as this one. That being said, it makes for one hell of a good time.
