    One thing that really impressed me is that when racing against the computer the cars will actually change places.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    This is still one of the best multiplayer games ever.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Decent-looking and extremely fun,...fast, tough, fun and a solid 2D blast from the past that is priced just right at $30.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    One sweet and fun "Spyro"-like (game) for PSX owners with a sense of humor.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Despite forcing players to spend what seems like an eternity unlocking 90% of the good stuff at the start Hot Shots Golf Open Tee is a winner.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Won't be remembered as a breakthrough title but it will be remembered as one of the most original and risk taking games ever produced on the PlayStation.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Quality RPG gameplay wrapped in 2D nostalgia, and a good buy for those seeking maximum real-time battle bang out of their hard-earned bucks.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Despite a few rough edges (blurred textures, loading pauses galore, etc.) this is easily the best licensed golf simulation ever released on a portable console.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    SCEA has pulled this one off by sticking to a formula that works mixed with the greatness of the movie.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The gameplay hasn't evolved too terribly much but it has improved.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The "Gran Turismo" of motorcycle sims on PlayStation. It's as simple as that
    • 72 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The improvements are great and make the game closer to the vision of a great 3D X-Men fighter but it’s hard to recommend a game that is so lacking in depth that it becomes quickly tiresome.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Inspired sports lunacy of the highest order.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    This is not a "Gran Turismo 2" simulation-type of driving game, but it sure plays like one on TV (when hooked to a PSX of course).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Warning though, this one is for those with plenty of patience and FPS experience. Novice players need not apply.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The racing in NASCAR Thunder 2002 is solid, fun and deep. Racing a career almost feels like an RPG when you take on the role of NASCAR's most famous teams and drivers.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A stellar representative of a bygone era of gaming that put more emphasis on skill and personality that textured polygons or sex appeal.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A solid game that surprised me with its heavy action and interesting scenery.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although there is little different this time, the game continues the same path that made Lara a superstar.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    For its $10 asking price "Stage II" (and Midway's other Psygnosis refugee "Team Buddies") cannot be beat in replayability. Buy with ease.

    • 84 Critic Score
    The redesigned mission structure and expanded universe of tricks from the next-generation installments of Tony Hawk 4 made the cut.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    I had the lowest expectations when I booted-up "Sarge's Heroes 2" on my PSOne, only to be pleasently surprised that it actually looks and plays like someone at 3DO put love and heart into creating it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Solid and consistent. If you loved 4 then you're almost certain to love 5. On the other hand if you've always hated Megaman then move on as this is truly more of the same.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    That's the best part about this game -- it's easy to just pick up and play.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Fans will love its cruelty toward the good guys, but newcomers will want to rent to see if its reliance on "Tomba"-like skill collecting and fishing carry it over its rough spots.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's a great multiplayer game for parties, especially with those non-gamer types.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    If you own the Dreamcast version of this game consider yourself lucky and treasure it, because this PSOne port is an adequate but ugly and muffled-sounding facsimile of the genuine article.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's not one of those blockbuster games that everyone must have but it is a somewhat original take on a genre that continues to provide fun and entertainment.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It does enough things right to merit the attention of the few gamers still willing to put up with 32-bit "RE" gameplay (circa 1996) in the year 2001.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Unless you have a personal connection with any of its 28 songs though, this DDR is best left for gamers that don’t know any better. [12/31/02]
