    Worth the forty bucks IF “Legaia 2” or “Suikoden III” left you hungry for more.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The control gimmick of "Cookie & Cream" not only works like a charm, but also serves as the basis of one hell of a brain-teasing, pulse-pounding and reasonably-complex series of "Crash Bandicoot"-like forward-scrolling levels.

    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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Good-looking stuff even if what most gamers will recall from their time with Dragon Quarter is being blinded by the darkness and a PSOne-sponsored shade of the color brown.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A deep, mature, and original plot, beautiful cel-shaded textures and plenty of hidden extras (like optional bosses, treasures, etc.) make Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga one of the greatest role-playing experiences on the PlayStation 2 to date.

    This is the best NFS game to come out in years. We predicted that only having Porsche's would make the game dull but oh did EA prove us wrong.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The visuals are a little dated but everything else about this package screams ‘class act.’
    • 78 Metascore

    Multi-console owners should consider the Xbox version of Super Monkey Ball Deluxe (or either of the original Gamecube versions) over this slowdown-riddled and slow-to-load PS2 port.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The original PC version's RPG trappings have been watered down, effectively diminishing strategy and story-telling in favor of lengthy fetch quests and mucho butt-kicking action.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This unusual marriage of strategy and RPG (regardless of how inconsequential Gladius' storyline actually is) manages to work despite an acute lack of polish in the graphics (mostly blocky and undetailed with few exceptions) and the somewhat-huge interface (lots of variables to keep track of).
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rough, outlandish and a hell of a lot of fun.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game's wicked sense of humor (courtesy of the show’s writers/actors contributing their craft to the game) and Radical's virtual re-enactment of Springfield (along with its many inhabitants) will make even the most hardened "GTA III/Vice City" fanatic forget about the lack of weapons or mayhem.

    • 81 Critic Score
    Being the only 32-bit baseball title with up-to-date rosters, however, doesn’t mean a heck of a lot when everything else looks like the rehashed and barely-improved years-old product that this title actually is.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hockey has never been more action packed, violent and fun than this unique and oh so Midway approach to the fastest game on earth.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With the Dual Shock 2 available in every PS2 box, why do we still not have analog control here? Other than that the game plays as it always has, acceptable.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There’s just something weird about playing a Disney-sanctioned, watered-down version of "Tony Hawk 4" that will put-off as many grown-up players as it will enchant.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the single-player modes are merely OK is in its multiplayer and online modes that this third Offroad Fury game earns its worth.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Highly recommended for anyone with a sense of humor (that excludes you George Lucas... out, out, OUT!
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not for little kids, senior citizens or the easily-discouraged, Dropship demands serious commitment and many hours before revealing its true worth. Once it grabs you though, Dropship makes "Ace Combat 4" and "Lethal Skies" come across as trainee rookie simulators.

    In the right frame of mind and with enough patience, "MGP2" is an absolute blast for players who want their racing semi-realistic, hard and with a convincing sense of virtual speed hitting their windshield (i.e. the TV screen).
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    When it clicks it's such a magnificent marriage of concept and execution (particularly the control) that we wish everything in it had been as well thought and designed as the portions which were given more attention (like the graphics).
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The fielding, hitting and baserunning still play second-fiddle to the intimidating pitcher interface though.

    If they can continue this pattern we just might have the best soccer game next year.

    2005 is taking its first step to becoming one of the top games on the market by adding all the new features.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A unique trick system combined with beautiful graphic design are enough to give it a whirl. Difficult is the key word.

    Those who desire the more strict interpretation of European Soccer will find this style more to their liking. Those looking for fast fun gameplay will want to rent first to see if this taste appeals to their tastebuds.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Predictably-competent (but soulless and extremely short).
    • 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.
