    An average basketball game...All in all, Visual Concepts didn't really push the bar too much as they've done in previous versions.

    Great graphics, boring commentary, good sound effects, good gameplay with a few major problems in the game play and ability to run online leagues. I would only suggest this game if you plan to play the game online if you can overlook some of the stuff I mentioned.

    I can ignore a lack of game mode additions, but when the gameplay feels untouched, the overall appeal decreases.

    The recruiting systems are addicting and there is enough glitz and glamour to establish a college environment. The gameplay, in both of EA's college games, needs some more work, especially with A.I.

    There's no question that F12K's presentation is top notch, and it's just frustrating to think that if some of the work put into the presentation had of been channeled into improving the physics and AI, then F12K could have been definitive console F1 simulation.

    "Swing Away Golf" may lack the visual realism and quick load times of TWPT2001, but it offers more bang for the buck, with crisper, more detailed graphics; more replay value; and ball physics that are about as accurate.

    Assigning a final overall score for this game is quite difficult. A score of 78 seems low for a game that is easily one of the best sports games on the PS2.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The gameplay really hampers the overall score of the game and probably prevents it from achieving what it is capable of.
    • 77 Metascore

    The graphics are clean, but camera flaws ruin the fielding in the game.

    What I get out of this game is just a fun time. I have this thing about freedom in a game and I would be happy with just the free roam mode this title offers.

    I am anxious to see next year's version. 989 Sports in general is becoming more respectable - I don't know if they got new designers or more budget or what, but the quality of product is looking up.

    I gave "Final Four" a better overall score than College Basketball 2k3 on the basis of game play.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Although it has some cool secret characters and a neat build-a-mountain feature, the single-player modes are a little too easy.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, the game lacks significant depth and as such doesn't grab your attention for extended periods. The difficulty takes a giant leap near the end and may frustrate gamers more than endear them.

    Unless you have an extreme fascination with the X Games or worship the switch-stance prodigy Bob Burnquist, you should save your $50 and wait for Mr. Hawk's forthcoming 128-bit appearance.

    Apart from having cool flatland tricks and an interesting road-trip theme, Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 is rather stale.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Just don't expect the thrill and excitement of your first few hours of play to continue for a long time.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Would have failed as a traditional racing game, since the racing itself is rather boring and uninspired. The limited trick list and lack of common features, such as a track editor and create-a-rider mode, also detract from the game.

    Acclaim's "Freestyle Motocross: McGrath vs. Pastrana" has a better freestyle mode, but the racing in CM2K1 is a lot more exciting and if I wanted to do spectacular tricks and stunts I'd just play "Dave Mirra" or "Tony Hawk 2."

    Apart from having cool flatland tricks and an interesting road-trip theme, Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 is rather stale.

    CM3 has only a fraction of the features of "CM2" and fails to add significant upgrades. While the sound, driving, and stages are excellent, the game ultimately comes up short.

    Online play is definitely the main selling point of MTX: Mototrax and what sets it apart from other motocross titles. Other than that, though, the game does not deliver anything terribly new or innovative.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Questionable baserunning AI, lack of tuning options, and some fielding issues.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    One of the neatest extreme sports games I have played; sadly, it is also one of the most stale, gameplay-wise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, MS Golf 2001 Edition is marked more by what is missing from previous versions of the game than it is by anything new that has been added.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The lack of USB wheel support and no mirrors bring the ranking down significantly. Every time I gear up for a race I think of how much better this game could have been.

    The game is a work of art visually; you won’t believe you’re playing on a handheld. Unfortunately, the gameplay isn’t up to the same level as the graphics. [JPN Import]

    Plays too fast to be considered a serious sim.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The overall gameplay feels almost unchanged from the previous NFL Fever games.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Essentially what I expected it to be, which is to say, a $30 "patch" for the dismal "TW2K."
