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

    Fun but frustrating at the same time and only a few steps from being brilliant, Maximo is a must play.

    The greatest Boxing game on the PS period!

    The audience of "Jerry Springer" is right: we love lesbians!

    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.

    It’s worth the cash only if you’re an FPS junkie without access to a Nintendo 64 or XBox, where “Perfect Dark” and “Halo” provide everything that Red Faction II clumsily attempts to incorporate.

    Incredibly fun physics which give you the feeling of actually riding on a waterbased vehicle.

    It’s hard to imagine how the single-player Ace Combat experience could get any better than in The Unsung War.

    In the end yours truly would rather park his limited NASCAR interest in Tiburon’s garage than Monster Games'.

    Even someone like me, a NASCAR illiterate, has to profess amazement at how much fun running around in circles trying to beat 43 other drivers can be.

    With tons of unlockable content, a unique cooperative play mode, a behind the scenes look at the making of the game, an excluisve music video from the band COLD, and an overall gameplay experience that will keep you coming back for more... what's not to love?

    Slick interface, colorful graphics that display cool characters/shapes/colors and the best control interface ever conceived for a music game make this $30 PSOne the definite 32-bit representative of Konami’s perpetual cash cow. [12/31/02]

    If it were just a little less linear, a little bit longer and a little less unforgiving in some of its latter stumpers (lots of 'littles' for a game trying to compensate for its lack of... well, you know!)

    This is by far the BEST. BOND. GAME. EVER. And I say that without a doubt in my mind.

    solid game that will get it's deserved audience and hopefully become the blockbuster the Dreamcast kept it from being. Hunt on zombie killer!

    What Midway has done so well is to clearly give the gamer arrows and clear circles to help define each goal. Although you can really fly through the levels at top speeds, these help indicators really keep the game moving at a fun pace without making things frustrating.

    There’s not much here that will entice replayability once the game’s numerous secrets have been uncovered.

    Daxter's shtick notwithstanding (he hasn't made me laugh since the middle of last year's adventure) Jak 3 stands tall and proud as a testament of what polished gameplay and cutting-edge graphics can do when the host system's Emotion Engine is maximized.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The ill-advised addition of needlessly graphic displays of violence, backtracking galore and contemporary music/voices take attention away from Warrior Within's excellent new combat maneuvers, still-outstanding environmental puzzles and lengthier quest. The PS2 version is also saddled with periodic bouts of slowdown and no online support whatsoever (sigh!).

    The best tennis game ever to appear on a Sony system...Add online support next year Sega, and you've got yourself a killer-app.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This classic next-generation action experience overflows with class and attention to detail, welcoming 80’s veterans and young newcomers into its pseudo-intellectual (!) interpretation of classic Greek motifs and 3D action platforming.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Control is dead-on perfect, and the gameplay is so polished and fun that it compensates for the somewhat lackluster graphics/sounds and the absence of customizable options.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A steady stream of competent enhancements (especially online) and a return to the original franchise’s goal-based gameplay a fresh experience does not make. Story mode is just plain dumb, and the art design has been needlessly changed for the worse.

    This is about as good as most fighters, but it's basketball and it's online too!

    Deeper-than-a-Bible-sermon battle commands, philosophical in nature, cinematic by choice and at times infuriatingly self-absorbed (non-interactive 45 min. cutscenes??!!), Monolith Software’s first chapter in what will be a multi-chapter episodic RPG arc has to be admired, reviled and thoroughly experienced from start to finish.

    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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Live 2003’s identity crisis and average-at-best graphics are inexcusable. It belongs next to “ShootOut 2003” in the rental bin while “NBA 2K3” spins happily ever after.

    Though expensive and gimmicky because of its headset peripheral Karaoke Revolution’s pitch/length interface is forgiving enough (depending on the selected difficulty) to let even those of us cursed with shitty voices get into the virtual act and carry a tune.

    It's pure FIFA, American style the way I've come to know and love it. Go Burn!
