    The gameplay of F1 2001 is the best yet for the series on a console. The nagging issues of super grip and limited tuning options have been addressed and the game has rounded the corner on its way to becoming a potential sim lover's dream.

    Some of the elements need to be fine tuned in next year's version, such as presentation and audio. With these problems asides, the depth of the Legacy mode, increased Xbox Live features, and better gameplay make this a good buy at $20.

    If you can handle the twitchy racing style of the expert mode, the tuning options are numerous. The game features a good damage model, and the support of the Logitech force feedback wheel adds to the realism of the game.

    I just wish that the details of NH were as good as the foundational components such as the physics and graphics engines. The yellow flag bug will ruin a great offline race.

    If you have a moderately fast computer and decent video card, you should be able to really enjoy Nascar Racing 2002 Season.

    The combination of graphics and intuitive gameplay make this game a success.

    Certain flaws in NBA Street V3 held it back from getting a better score, such as the gameplay feeling awkward at times and the annoying announcer.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Even though the other two versions of this series are more fun, the incredible customization depth, tons of unlockables, and the addition of online multiplayer make up for the V3's flaws and make it the best of the three games in the series.

    MLB 2K5 is not the best baseball video game on the market, but that does not mean its bad. The presentation, graphics, and audio, as well as improvements in the online mode help overcome the game's weaknesses.

    It's not yet great, but I think more of a stepping stone toward greatness, and the NHL series seems to be finally moving in the right direction.

    The game is virtually a carbon copy of the PSX version. However, the AI and control was tweaked just a wee bit in the positive direction.

    Not only do you have to be able to play street ball, but you also have to be able to break some ankles and score with style, not just a wussy 15-foot jump shot, which likely would get rejected/goaltended in the game.

    The game play is top notch and the graphics got a great upgrade.

    The game isn't the "NBA Jam" of soccer, but the propensity for high-scoring games gives it a different feel from "Winning Eleven."

    If you prefer a quicker-paced game buy "High Heat," but if you like a more methodical and in-depth game, buy WSB.

    Truth is, beyond the crassness of its Story mode, THUG 2 is not radically different from last year's game. There's not a whole lot new here aside from a few gimmicks and some off-the-wall elements.

    It is fun. I looked forward to each game I played and enjoyed every minute of it.

    Hands down the best series on the PlayStation...The Madden series leaves PSOne gamers on a high note as they take the series to the PS2 and X-Box.
    • 76 Metascore

    A very challenging game with the computer constantly hitting clutch shots when the game is on the line.
    • 85 Metascore

    Flaws in the graphics and lack of improvement in 24/7 mode are outweighed by the positives of improvements in gameplay, the Association, and online.

    For football sim fans, we want to be able to customize just about every aspect of the AI. 2K3 attempts this to a certain extent, but it still has a ways to go.

    This new edition could have been so much more (and some of its features should have been in the original).
    • 81 Metascore

    One of the best action-sports titles available, rivaling the great Tony Hawk series. Granted, the audio-visual presentation could have been better, and many bugs and glitches were left intact.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Overall, even despite some of its shortcomings, this game is a good enough improvement over last year's game to warrant a purchase.

    Despite a small field of cars, NASCAR 2001 gives the virtual racer a sense of the thrill of NASCAR racing.

    A game that does its license proud. It's the most complete boxing game to come out recently.
    • 91 Metascore

    ESPN's fatigue problems and lazy secondary play detract from the game, but the first person view, running game, and overall presentation show ESPN is a strong contender.

    Rallisport Challenge 2 should win the award as the best looking game on the Xbox. Its graphics are nothing short of amazing, but the audio package is typical for racing games.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A major improvement over last year's version in terms of both the gameplay and the in-game features.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Lack of a decent replay, lack of injuries, the occasional quirky fielding, and squatty player models. But honestly EA and Treyarch have put forth a nice product, making several improvements over the PSX versions of the game. The implementation of the pressure-sensitive buttons adds a whole new dimension to the game.
