    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.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A major improvement over last year's version in terms of both the gameplay and the in-game features.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The ball physics, course modeling, new swing type, and huge number of options make this a must buy for Links fans.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The gameplay and AI is solid, albeit a little aggressive.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A modest improvement over the previous title, but it's still lacking as a single-player game.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore

    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.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    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.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Fans of arcade style games, such as myself, will appreciate the game. Its gameplay is fun, and the graphics are wonderful.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The gameplay is solid, despite the Pro Tour mode's complete lack of originality.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    While it lacks freshness, a combination of colorful graphics and realistic ball physics gives it broad appeal.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    With a graphics overhaul (989 Sports: think louder and brighter with your color scheme) and more forgiving gameplay, MLB could be comparable to High Heat Baseball in its depth.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    If the game had more depth or difficulty it would perhaps be the top arcade racer on the PS2--instead it's just a very good, though not great, game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The new addition of the lengthy franchise mode along with the addicting create-a-player portion of the game certainly makes the game more enjoyable.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The AI is a mixed bag. As mentioned before, their pitch selection along with their swing selection are realistic. However, the AI base running is not good at all.
