    While the single player game is basic and ultimately boring, the game more than makes up for that with its online play.

    My biggest beef with Siren is that it's one and only really "key" feature, sightjacking, was played up to be a very useful tool that will be essential in your survival. What no one really bothered to mention is that sightjacking is about all the game really is (at least in the earlier portions of the game).

    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.

    Compare it to the user-friendly “FIFA 2004” and the overall-perfection of “Winning Eleven 7" though, and WTS ‘05 comes up way short.
    • 83 Metascore

    This is about as good as most fighters, but it's basketball and it's online too!
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The control system may be so new and fun that it's masking some of the game's problems. If so, then so be it for now because all we can do is love hitting this way.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A steep learning curve, buggy online mode, and lack of communication options between you and your allies make this title fall short in just about everything it set out to achieve.
    • 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.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You don't want to spend your hard-earned (or however you get it... don't ask, don't tell, right?) cash on a game that's just "good," do you?
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    I’m not a fan of the show, so its lack of originality and sloppy visuals (for a third-generation PS2 release) left me cold and unimpressed.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Highly addictive gameplay that seems to never end, generally impressive visuals, and a portal designed around an interactive worldwide community all combine to make this the best possible solution SCEA could have hoped for with regards to launching it's new 40GB Hard Disc Drive.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Tedious puzzles, monotonous action and some of the worst English voice-overs ever committed to DVD-ROM sink into oblivion what little chance Cy Girls had to impress an American audience not exposed to the original TV show that inspired its creation.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Every bit as good as the recent "Resident Evil Outbreak" game if not better in some ways.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The single player campaigns, while engaging, are somewhat lacking in cohesion.
    • 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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The association with Kurosawa’s classic ’54 epic notwithstanding, 20XX is just too mindless and repetitive a hack-and-slash experience to recommend.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A schitzophrenic camera, irresponsive controls, and slow gameplay make Worms 3D nothing more than fishbait in this reviewer's eyes.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Exceeded all expectations that I had for the game, and then some. It does everything a game of this calibur can possibly do, innovating on some aspects while integrating several new ideas, molding the genre into a fun, sadistic package the likes of which we rarely see.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the deepest sports games period. With online play, which I admit is not quite as exciting as football or hockey, an insanely deep franchise mode, and solid graphics and sound, it seems that this is the choice for fans of the long, deep experience of baseball.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fans of the movie "Dragonheart" and people who like games that run in the same vein as the "Dynasty Warriors" and "Panzer Dragoon" series' will enjoy Drakengard to the fullest while others will recieve a solid, yet short and lacking, gameplay experience that won't leave them completely satisfied.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is by far the BEST. BOND. GAME. EVER. And I say that without a doubt in my mind.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you can handle the intense trial and error style of gameplay, you'll more than likely love Rise to Honor.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    What it lacks in licenses and features (no online play!) WE7I more than compensates for with the most realistic, intense, attractive and all-around addicting soccer game to ever appear on PS2.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You'll be hard-pressed to find another mutiplayer adventure as engaging and addicting as this one on any console, and gamers looking to add to their admittedly slim online collections won't be disappointed in the experience that awaits them here.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The bottom line is, if you liked "Shinobi" then you'll most likely love Nightshade. With more unlockables and selectable difficulty's than it's predecessor (and replay value as well), Nightshade is a good buy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Buggy, clunky, littered with minute-long loading pauses (the tell-tale sign of a PC-to-console port gone bad) and framey as hell, this action title at least has a pretty cool premise that is enhanced by a well-told story and very good sound.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Marred by technical issues (slowdown galore, jagged edges, simplistic-to-a-fault level design) that make it third-best behind the GameCube and Xbox versions.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Delivers fast-paced combat, platform leaping action, and a decent story to boot. With all this fun, and a forty dollar price tag, you simply can't go wrong.
