    Great speed, perfect control, gorgeous/detailed visuals, plenty of licensed cars, well-designed locations, customization options galore and a menu/option interface to die for easily make V-Rally 3 the best rally game of 2002.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A complete package that includes a convincing storyline, likeable characters, solid action, some of the best control ever and voice acting as icing on the cake.

    The ultimate “MGS” fan’s dream come true. And, with Solid Snake now front and center throughout the proceedings (Snake Tales anyone?), this “MGS” sequel can be enjoyed the way it was meant to: with as little Raiden as possible!

    Worth replaying a thousand times over just to experience the balance of eye-candy, time-tested gameplay and soothing-without-grating music/sound effects.

    HHB 2003 has it all. Good looks, great presentation, solid AI, fun unique game modes and plenty of style.

    Despite its flaws (mostly remnants of four-year code still at the core of this engine) LOK: Defiance is a polished, challenging, entertaining and adult interactive experience to die for. I can’t recommend this game high enough, especially for those that quit playing the series out of frustration (and will find in Defiance all the answers that left them scratching their heads).

    Its always fun and like the good china best saved for the special occasions when you want to impress.

    And when you factor in downloadable content with the upcoming release of the PS2 HDD, SOCOM’s reign as the PS2’s top online game doesn't look to be ending anytime soon.

    It’s no "Wind Waker" (then again, what is?) but, in its own quiet and subtle way, developer Level-5’s dungeon-clearing RPG is as amusing and polished an entry into the genre as anything Miyamoto has designed for the past two generations of Nintendo consoles.

    Sands of time you collect can actually allow you to "rewind" the level, changing the mistake you made. As unbelievable as this may sound, it doesn't make the game too easy because the balance between being able to use it is well done.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The emphasis on improved graphics, realism and vehicle/track variety come at the expense of a missing online component, better AI for the CPU drones and the return of the dreaded license tests. The good overwhelmingly outweighs GT4’s handful of tolerable negatives though.

    If your a hardcore Konami fan you just might like what's here, especially the cool online play.

    Ico isn’t a new type of game but rather one taken to near perfection. Rarely does a game gel like this and it’s simply the work of a master.

    The best reason to play SWON is the story and writing. This is Lucasarts afterall so that should not be surprising to anyone.

    It's just this close (fingers a couple of inches apart) to being one of the deepest and best-designed single-player adventure games of all time.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The addition of the style system, a concrete storyline and a slick new arsenal of moves makes this entry arguably the best in the series so far. However, don't be mistaken, Devil May Cry 3 is hard as hell.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is by far the BEST. BOND. GAME. EVER. And I say that without a doubt in my mind.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Definitely a solid game and the best in the series, just a tiring genre that is no longer as exciting as it once was.

    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.

    A textbook example of how to make a sequel.

    With solid puzzles, a great story, creepy settings, the most disgusting monsters ever and puzzles that simply rock, Silent Hill 2 has gained my respect in the survival horror genre.

    The intuitive IsoMotion controls, top-notch visuals and dead-on college basketball atmosphere are just better at capturing the spirit of March Madness than the EA Sports game that utilizes that name.

    A handful of new gameplay tweaks, new hovercraft racing classes and a PSP-worthy visual overhaul make WipeOut Pure the best installment in the series since 1996â??s "WipeOut XL."

    It's a testament to the addictive gameplay and perfect control of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 that, despite its dated graphics and average-at-best sounds, it still manages to become the best rally racer on PSX.

    If you liked Spyro, you have to try this, it's simply that fun.

    If you've got a Multi-tap and an education, this bad boy's gonna last you a while.

    It's not for those seeking deep simulation style 'football' but it will do for everyone else.
    • 73 Metascore

    Quirky, fun and appropriately-priced.

    Damn if it isn’t the most complete and up-to-date pigskin simulator $40 can buy. For traveling NFL fans with access to a portable PSOne this is a mandatory upgrade.

    The demonic and fittingly adult storyline goes hand in hand with the updated and modernized look, it's almost as if a Clive Barker movie went RPG.
