    The visuals are a little dated but everything else about this package screams ‘class act.’

    If Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne does anything right, it's the game's uncanny ability to show rebellious and confused teenagers across the globe just how cool the devil really is.

    A wonderful mix of ironic humor, classic gameplay and gorgeous graphics.

    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
    The fielding, hitting and baserunning still play second-fiddle to the intimidating pitcher interface though.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It delivers on all pistons with plenty to keep gamers playing for months.
    • 69 Metascore

    How to put it politely? The music in Silhouette Mirage is utter and insanely crappy j-pop tunes that got stuck in my head in the worst possible way (headache!), almost tempting me to switch the TV's split-screen to get access to the audio of an annoying high-pitch sound of a test pattern in progress.

    "Goldeneye" fans looking for another adventure probably won't have too good of a time with this one since it needs more than one person to truly shine.
    • 80 Metascore

    Although it's a bit on the short side with only 11 missions and a tutorial mode, there are multiple ways to go about doing things which offers up some pretty hefty replay value.

    A really nice mix of "Powerstone" and "Rampage."

    Music has never sounded better than MTV Music Generator 2 which pleases us. Do yourself a favor and expand your own horizon by giving this a try.
    • 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!).

    If they can continue this pattern we just might have the best soccer game next year.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Unapologetic about being old-school hard... It’s a rude awakening to how soft and cuddled the masses have become toward games that demand as much from them as they do from the game-makers.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What Bam!'s 2001 release "Driven" should have, but wasn't: a good racing engine tied to an unfolding story.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    From graphics to cool weapons, and from in-depth online multiplayer options galore to the choice of using stealth or brawn to complete missions, Crystal Dynamics’ FPS shooter is just what the doctor ordered for the genre-deficient PS2.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Less-than-impressive graphics and underwhelming sound aside, we cannot help but recommend highly Le Mans 24 Hours to the simulation driving fans out there that are done (or stumped) completing "GT3: A-Spec".
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cel shading has never been as underplayed and better used in a PS2 game as in this one, and even the English dub and J-pop tunes fit like a glove with The 2nd Runner's anime-inspired universe.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Let's just hope that everyone goes back to the drawing board on PlayStation 2, and bring to the fans the ultimate and ORIGINAL "SW" experience they were denied on the 32-bit era.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Speaking of gameplay this is where the title just can't manage to break out from the norm. What we needed here was something full of new ideas, not just a revolution of the ideas already given in previous games.

    If you can live without its busted online brawls and missing wrestlers but love WWE matches then Smackdown! Vs. Raw is worth the fifty bucks.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Good graphics, solid controls, decent sound (including purposefully-campy English dialogue) and mucho replayability (especially from its two-player mode) make Wrath of Heaven the best Tenchu game of the trilogy.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It can be really fun when the wonky camera and the troublesome lock-on control don’t get in the way, but once the ride’s over there’s no incentive to go back (i.e. no multiplayer mode).
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Much like the original "Legacy of Kain," this title's quest mode has a really cool, creepy story that kept me wanting to see more and more as I took my little demoness through.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It allows anyone to be a kid all over again and create some imaginary world where everything is to your liking, the place where you would really like to go and have fun.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fast, slick, pretty and still fun despite only being related to the original “WipeOut” series by name, “Fusion” is as good as off-line futuristic racing can feel and play on the PS2 right now.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Other than the voices though, the rest of the audio package in "Legends 2" is just vanilla-plain decent.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its mix of "Dynasty Warriors" gameplay, "Starship Troopers"-type setting (complete with umpteen million giant bugs to kill) and interesting characters Crimson Sea 2 is an above-average hack-and-slash adventure.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    From fantastic special effects to authentic (though recycled) voices/music from the TV show, and from new useful moves (teleportation!) to a keen balance between overkill and authenticity to its source material in the graphics, this is it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Lacks soul or a reason for being other than cashing on a popular trend. Black Box’s follow-up to "NFS: Hot Pursuit 2" goes through its racing, style, licensing and online motions with a mechanical predictability that wasn’t present in either "Burnout 2" or "Midnight Club II." It’s still a top-notch arcade racer, but there’s definite room for both improvement.
