    While the graphics aren't as good as I expected from this PS2 title, they are still a huge jump up for PlayStation owners. The reported slowdown hardly detracts from enjoying the game.

    The ball physics, course modeling, new swing type, and huge number of options make this a must buy for Links fans.

    While the stronger features like the new pitcher/batter interface are outstanding, I'm not sold that this is the king of the mound. The major problem is with the defense, and I think defense wins championships.

    ASB04 has made some very good strides on the graphics side, but I have to admit that, for me, the hitting is still too much of a chore.

    The strongest college basketball game on the market this season by a good margin.

    This is the best yet in the series. The addition of licensed cars, more rivals and highways, and a few new gameplay twists make this one fine racer.

    While MVP will likely fall short of fulfilling gamers wanting a true simulation, the game blends realism and arcade successfully, just as many other EA games have done in the past.

    MLB
    It is the best handheld baseball game I have played. This is due in large part to the easy pickup and play nature of the game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The gameplay and AI is solid, albeit a little aggressive.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The animation sequences are nothing short of perfection, with pull-down tackles and wrap-around sacks utilizing many frames of action.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Some of the major AI problems (specifically the lack of fast breaks and effective CPU team defense) mentioned above definitely took away from my enjoyment of the game.

    A huge improvement from NBA Live 2002, bringing back the enjoyment that had been missing before. Obviously the FreeStyle Control has a huge role in this revival.

    Forget about all of the claims that Tiger Woods 2003 has realistic physics - it doesn't. But they aren't ridiculously bad and don't take away too much from the overall experience.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A modest improvement over the previous title, but it's still lacking as a single-player game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The game flows like no other basketball game out there, but a few flaws keep NBA Live 2004 from running away from its competition.
    • 89 Metascore

    With such new additions as the ladder match, more in-depth championship modes, and new wrestlers, WWF No Mercy is definitely a good investment even with some of the AI problems found in the game.

    Unlike other racing games that offer the same type of race mode over and over again, Demolition Racer offers a collection of modes that will keep you interested and busy.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It fails to fully address some of the graphical problems in the game, but it does improve the depth of this single player only title.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    While it lacks freshness, a combination of colorful graphics and realistic ball physics gives it broad appeal.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    VB may fall short in terms of graphics and options, but the bread-and-butter of any game, the gameplay, is outstanding. You won't find a better, more enjoyable boxing game than this.

    A truckload of fun to play and a must-buy for hardcore rugby union fans (who aren't exactly spoiled for choice in this genre). Casual fans of the sport may want to rent first, and see if they like the control scheme.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The atmosphere is there, but the game style, more so than a lack of animation or AI, is not correct.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The running back strength is excessive, and some of the secondary play is suspect. If these parameters were addressed, I'd probably switch allegiance yet one more time since the overall graphical and audio presentation of NFL 2K2 is the best around, and the tighter control makes for a fun play.

    Fans of arcade style games, such as myself, will appreciate the game. Its gameplay is fun, and the graphics are wonderful.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Although the game is lacking in the audio department, the game's depth is what makes it special. For die-hard Nascar fans, I would give two thumbs up in buying this title.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The gameplay is solid, despite the Pro Tour mode's complete lack of originality.

    NHL 2005 does have many things going for it, but it just is not as good as "ESPN NHL 2K5." There are no glaring problems with EA's game, but it just was not as fun as it had the potential to be.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Delivers graphically and excels in the running game, but its passing game comes up short.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The secondary play continues to be a sore point, and the CPU still can't run the ball effectively with the default AI settings. On the positive side, the human-controlled running game is as good if not better than "NFL2K1" on the Dreamcast.

    Clearly the first impression High Heat makes is one of an ugly girl. It's ugly. Real ugly. But once you get into the game you'll uncover a pretty good baseball game.
