    The lack of a decent camera angle makes fielding a highly frustrating experience. Running under fly balls is not a problem at all. The dilemma is fielding the ground balls.

    I have played all three PS2 baseball games and TP is by far the most entertaining in terms of scoring a lot of runs, racking up a lot of strikeouts, and looking at eye candy. To hold TP to a simulation-standard would be putting it in the wrong genre.

    The new game modes are fun to play. However, the repackaged graphics and sound just don't improve significantly over last year's version. In some respects they are worse.

    The two-handed boxing controls give gamers unprecedented freedom. And while most of the game modes are easy, the Career Mode is no pushover.

    Personally, the game started out enjoyable and still is, but I have a feeling I will start to get frustarted with the rebounding and missing short shots too often in the near future.

    Well below average when compared to other all-text sports games. The interface is too multilateral, while there is a feeling that you have little impact on the simulated games.

    It's purely an arcade experience but it's incredibly fun and I was really impressed with Vicarious Visions' track designs.

    Not a huge improvement over "Championship Surfer," but it is certainly much better than the PS2's other surfing game, the horrid "Surfing H30."

    For overall quality, it's stuck somewhere between a rock (a solid "NBA 2K2" title) and a hard place (the underachieving "NBA Live 2002").

    Last year, I gave Gameday a 67. I feel this year's game is better on many fronts, but there are still glaring issues with the gameplay and GM mode. Once those flaws get ironed out, the potential to become a third fiddle in the football gaming symphony is good.

    I'm vastly disappointed with this game. I clearly remember being excited about last year's potential for the future. I thought 989 Sports would finally come through with a top-notch college basketball game, something that I don't believe has ever been done.

    A decent game that makes you crave more. More AI riders, more options, more depth. If it had these things it would be a must-buy title.

    The game is just boring sometimes and has a couple of ball physics and audio problems that prevent it from being one of the elite golf N64 games on the market.

    If you are looking for a football game that will entertain you for the long run, NFL Blitz is not a good choice, especially with games like "Madden 2001" out there.

    Definitely a quick fix and will leave you feeling empty after just a few tournaments.

    My main complaint with the AI is that it is often way too easy to beat in the traditional racing modes. The racing tends to suffer because of the ease of the game.

    The excellent legacy mode is already there, so the game is just a few gameplay tweaks away from greatness.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    The limited number of race modes and rudimentary career mode limit the replay value of the game. So while the game is fun, its fun is limited.

    While Shootout 2001 is not a bad game, it's not as good as "Live 2001" for the PSX.

    The stereotypical supermodel would be a good way to describe this title. The first few moments spent with Wreckless will really impress, but once you start investigating a little you'll notice a lack of substance.

    Hardcore racing fans might get a kick out of it, but the rest of the crowd would get content just beating it over a couple day rental.

    HRK has High Heat beat in graphics, but its gameplay lags way behind.

    This game could be worth a rental though as by the time the rental is up, you will probably have gotten all you can from the game.

    While FMX is competent, its Career mode lacks magic and its racing and freestyle components do not outshine those of other motocross titles.

    After playing GD 2003, I won't think of the series as a laughingstock anymore. The game has earned my respect, but it still has a while to go.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Like many of the also-rans, it failed primarily to the questionable secondary AI. There are some bright spots in the game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    The AI is a pushover, the course design is rather bland, the trackside graphics are blander, and the game length is too short.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    While the graphics hold up their end, the gameplay just isn't there for simulation fans to keep them satisfied for the long haul.
    • 78 Metascore

    It really is a shame that Midway and Black Box included such blatant computer assist since it ruins the longevity of what would otherwise be a solid game.

    A new, non-Fifa (i.e. non-totally crap) soccer experience for North American soccer fans and, as I said before, it's not a horrible game - on the lower difficulty levels it's reasonably fun and it also has a ton of teams and competitions.
