    I'm still waiting until we get a modern assassin game out of this universe, but until then Black Flag breathes a whole new energy back into the series. It also looks stunning on the PlayStation 4 and offers a lot of bang for your buck.

    If you are just purchasing a PlayStation2, and are considering an investment in a good strategy/fighting game, look no further.

    With an intriguing Story mode, addicting Arcade battles, and a Challenge mode that truly puts you to the test, it’s no secret that the key features that made "GoldenEye" such a hit leaked its way into the TimeSplitters world.

    The gameplay is solid, the graphics are on par with the upper echelon of current games, and sound is very respectable.

    Not as groundbreaking as it should have been. It may be hard to admit, but "Virtua Fighter 4" has taken a giant leap compared to Tekken 4’s bunny hop. But now that Namco has hit the nail on the head when it comes to fighting depth and detail, it is time for change.

    More than good, really, more situated in the whole “amazing/incredibly addictive/cleverly balanced” extreme.

    Amazingly fun!

    Slugfest’s crowning achievement is the audio. It is absolutely, positively stunning, and I’d be hard pressed to find a better example of not only quality writing but a mix of subtle and flat our humor in a game.

    Make no mistake, Red Card 20-03 is NOT a soccer sim, though it does a good job of recreating a surface representation of the game. It IS an incredibly fun, addictive and enjoyable experience.

    A blast to play, even in extended sessions thanks to a good story baseline, plenty of simple pick-up-and-play gameplay elements, and a control scheme that’s as intuitive as it is fluid.

    There’s a good chance that this will be the final chapter in the series (as the ending suggests), and if it is, there’s probably no better way to close up the story and give the fans what they were looking for: closure.

    I can't find a single gripe with the game. The control is absolutely perfect (wait till you feel the transition from road to water, it's awesome), the sound is great, the interface is clean and gorgeous.

    A fun game that’s utterly and completely bone-chilling in some parts. If you’re old enough, this is one hunt worth going on.

    What it does well, however is mixes them into a delicious stew of action, RPG and strategy elements that end up tasting better than if they were eaten by themselves.

    There’s only so much Hot Shots you can take before you start craving something new and innovative about the whole experience.

    It strays from greatness thanks to completely frustrating AI that ends up cheating so badly, it’s not even worth playing.

    Irem has, possibly more than any game they've made in recent memory, crafted a shooter that is at once faithful to the challenge of the original shooters that came before it, and utterly accessible to anyone experiencing it for the first time, and they've thrown in a remarkable amount of depth and just plain fun to keep both sides equally true to the source material. R-Type Final is a blast, plain and simple.

    The execution may be flawed in a few ways, but the game’s adorable charm and earnest attempts to keep things fresh are just enough to make it a better game than its successor in nearly every way.

    If you can live with drop dead gorgeous tracks and great physics, you'll find a lot to love in Splashdown.

    With TXR Zero, gamers not only get a PlayStation 2 version of the game, but they get the best one, hands down.

    It might be a little light on content for the full price, but if you’re a fan of eye candy, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better source of pupil fodder on the PS2.

    Graphics whores or anyone with a penchant for experiencing truly surreal and wildly imaginative creations would do well to put this on their buy list.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The pacing, boss designs and core gameplay are pick up and play easy, but with all the unlockable goodies doled out for replaying the game and finishing up levels with a dead aim and speedy trigger finger offer enough for those perfectionists to get the most out of the game.

    Despite its goofy and, possibly to some, even tasteless look, HSGF! is one of the most enjoyable golf games on the market, and surely the finest I’ve ever come across in its field.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is more or less "Ace Combat 4" with a few slight upgrades and gameplay honed to near-perfection, but the formula's just a bit too familiar, and the lengthy missions may turn less patient gamers off before the story can suck them in.

    On top of making an online experience that rivals the PC version (though again, the two really exist in their own respective worlds and should stay that way), the single-player game can absolutely make you better when it comes time to take on someone online.

    Holy crap can this game be good, but just as easily and twice and often, it's so bad you'll hate yourself for retrying that race for the 20th time. If only the challenge were eased off just a bit more, this game would have been a must-have.

    Forced stealth quibbles and slightly iffy physics aside, Second Sight's offering of a decently complex story (or as complex as you're going to get for an 8-10 hour action game) with a couple of twists and a silky smooth, high-budget presentation is one of the best Free Radical has pulled off to date.

    This is an incredibly well-designed mech shooter, period. Genki has a genuinely enjoyable mixture of combat, upgrades and globe-hopping Snow Crash-like dances across servers, and it's a fantastic mix indeed.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Bizarre localization conundrums aside, this is a solid game through and through. It has more charm and character than a vast majority of RPGs being released these days and gives us a fresh new take on an already-innovative game from years ago.
