    While the graphics hold up their end, the gameplay just isn't there for simulation fans to keep them satisfied for the long haul.

    Multiplayer is a bit more enjoyable than just playing the game yourself since you don't have to deal with the moronic AI.

    If it weren't for the remarkable performance of the play-by-play duo this score would be much lower. If you can somehow master the entire manual switching and controlling, Slugfest might be a fun game. I just can't get over how frustrating the game was.

    Despite a few nice features in Rivals (crowd noise, online play, and decent neutral zone play to name a few), overall the game falls flat. It's hard to get excited about this game knowing there are much better hockey simulations on the market.

    The online capability is a step in the right direction, but I think the game needs a complete overhaul of its interface and feature list to once again recapture its spot on the top of the hill.

    I had a lot more fun with the PSX version of Fifa 2001. Sure, it's also an arcade experience, but the passes don't move as fast, the tackles aren't as vicious and there isn't the useless shoot bar. Fifa 2001 PC is a huge disappointment and it's time the Fifa series got a major overhaul.

    A bare bones arcade basketball game short on simulation elements and long on minor flaws.

    With all the extra power of the PS2, all EA could do was add two more cars to the field. The 20 cars race in a pseudo-sim. This leaves arcade and sim racing fans alike scratching their heads.

    It serves as an adequate time killer (i.e., rental game), even if the gameplay is painfully uninspired and repetitious. Then again, fans of button mashers probably wouldn't have it any other way.

    A game with so much potential, Supercross 2001 is ultimately disappointing, and hopefully EA Sports can fix the framerate and some of the other problems for the next incarnation.

    A bad frame-rate, severely choppy animation, and a hard-to-spot aiming cursor are just a few things that seriously hinder Power Spike's promising but flawed gameplay.

    NHN isn't terrible, but it isn't close to being a great game either. Casual hockey fans shouldn't bother with National Hockey Night, and for the hardcore hockey fan this game is a rental at best.

    Besides a few cosmetic changes, nothing appears to have changed from last year's game. People buying MM2K1 who own MM2K are probably being suckered into purchasing a $40 roster patch.

    The AI is weak, scoring is plentiful on both sides of the ball, and there is little strategy involved. Enjoying the game is made even more difficult by sloppy controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    Even at the highest difficulty level the game provides little challenge.

    For me, I will stick with "Madden." "Gameday 2001" is still stuck in training camp.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Short, and I mean really short gameplay. With only seven events, the party's over before it even gets started.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    The AI flaws and problems with vehicle control bring the title down. The career mode is an interesting but not enough to maintain the title.

    There is nothing really good about this game except for the ability to wrestle with your favorite old-timers, as boring as that experience may be.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    The close camera makes the game less of a sim in that passing is hit or miss. The AI tends to show hints of brilliance followed by complete idiocy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    The game becomes nothing more than a button masher.

    If you liked Fifa 2001 then I'm sure you'll like this year's incarnation; however, those who've found the Fifa series disappointing in recent times should steer well clear.

    Despite a year off last year, Faceoff 2003 hasn't improved enough to stay with the competition.

    Fifa 2002 certainly isn’t as bad as last year’s version, but when push comes to illegal slide tackle, it’s not a great deal better and still doesn’t even come close to "ISS PE1" let alone "ISSPE2" in terms of realism, depth, and fun-factor, and both of those games are for the PSOne!

    If this game had come out 4 years ago, it may have been worth purchasing. It's in desperate need of a patch to fix the controller and menu issues.

    Somewhere along the line, Elite forgot about the driving. If the vehicle handling, dodgy control, and terrible AI could be addressed in a patch, Ford Racing could be a worthy purchase.

    While I thought NFL GameDay made some strides against the NFL competition, I don't think GameBreaker holds a candle to "NCAA."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    This is basic no-frills baseball. The presentation is filled with mediocrity and the lack of a franchise mode and decent AI just kills the game's entertainment value. It's the NFL Fever of baseball titles - a shallow baseball game.

    For a first year title, the learning curve is somewhat excusable, however, you have to draw the line at repeating those same mistakes the second time around.
