    • 70 Critic Score
    Although not shallow-enough to be deemed brain-dead, the antics of MX 2002 aren't going to make "GT3" gearheads sit up and take notice.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has some bad control issues, but comes with plenty of boxers, solid AI, a new faster engine and some of the best boxing graphics yet.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Although there is little different this time, the game continues the same path that made Lara a superstar.
    • 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.

    • 80 Critic Score
    While Spider-Man for the PS2 has its fair share of faults, it simply does so many things right, that you can't help but be sucked in by the experience.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Just as average, unremarkable and underwhelming as its predecessor where it counts: gameplay.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The story is cool, the voice-acting & music superb and the action sequences intense. The visuals are merely serviceable though, and emphasizing firepower over psychic abilities lessens the impact of the latter.

    Neither TransWorld Surf nor "Sunny Garcia" tap the videogame potential of surfing as far as the "Dave Mirra"/"Mat Hoffman"/"Tony Hawk" franchises pushed the interactive representations of their respective sports.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s also a pretty damn good piece of extreme sports interactive heaven, with sweet graphics and tight control at the service of one heck of a well-coded engine.

    • 77 Critic Score
    Living with outdated rosters that have legendary baseball greats to play around with isn't worth giving up for an update that looks/plays/sounds the same as last year's.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's still too boring and esoteric an experience for some of us to even take seriously. Add an extra point to our score for Save The Homeland if you're a fan of the series, or feel free to ignore whatever we say.

    • 77 Critic Score
    If you liked "Colony Wars," or if you like "Star Trek," you'll probably like this game. I didn't like "Colony Wars," and I don't like "Star Trek."

    • 73 Critic Score
    Unfortunately Toy Story Racer does everything just about dead-average.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The most fun I have had playing online as far as the first person shooter genre goes. This is one of those games you will want to have for sure just to see how good online play can be!

    If you can tolerate the outdated-looking frosting, the gameplay cake underneath "HHB 2002" is yummy-enough to be had (visual warts and all).
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    989 Sport's MLB 2002 continues the tradition of Deja Vu with an aging foundation that is still fun to play.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Worth replaying a thousand times over just to experience the balance of eye-candy, time-tested gameplay and soothing-without-grating music/sound effects.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Just mute that terrible music and you'll be set, mmkay?
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Other than the voices though, the rest of the audio package in "Legends 2" is just vanilla-plain decent.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If The Bard’s Tale played as well as it pokes fun at hack-and-slash RPG clichés we’d be talking about a ‘10’ here. The repetitive combat and reliance on tried-and-true RPG conventions, sadly, bring down the score.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It delivers on all pistons with plenty to keep gamers playing for months.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An acquired RPG taste worth sampling with a rental.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another new addition is icon passing. This actually works really well, especially for those who are more advanced gamers.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Learn to live with the darn “Tonight Show”-type BGM tunes, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2’s over-the-top madness will win you over as well.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The first PS2 motocross game that can actually go head-to-head with Nintendo’s “Excitebike 64” and challenge its unquestioned supremacy in this videogame genre.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A deeper, more challenging and ultimately more rewarding driving experience than "Auto Modellista” (PS2) or “Apex” (XBox).
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Takes the best of the first two games, skips that crapper of a third game, adds to the series ten-fold and once again threatens to turn your head into a nightmare hotel.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game's only original feature, a morale meter that affects gameplay based on a player's on-the-field performance, comes across as a tacked-on gimmick.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    At less than a buck per game the 24 titles in this compilation are videogame royalty that more than earn their keep in gameplay worth though.
