    A few secret characters, some more levels and a greater variety of techniques for each character would have made this an A+ title.

    Easily the best soccer game I’ve ever played.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Simply too great a package for any RPG lover to be without.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Every aspect of the game works tightly in conjunction, delivering an enormous amount of gaming.

    Tennis 2K2’s solid gameplay and impressive presentation prove that the Dreamcast still has some steam behind it.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Questionable camera controls and sometimes frustrating gameplay are all but forgiven in the context of the rest of the game's charms.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The action is heated enough to hold your attention and the cool touches like a fantastic damage engine make it all worthwhile.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Nearly everything in the game can be beaten down, picked up, thrown or in some way interacted with, and to see the effect this has on a sprawling downtown metropolis is simply breathtaking.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Chaotic, violent, and oh so naughty, State Of Emergency is a fun title marred by some truly annoying camera and control problems.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Although the handling is solid, and the visuals sport some cool effects, the inclusion of only 12 tracks does serious damage to the lasting appeal.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The appeal lies in stringing together simple moves into devastating combinations, not memorizing counterintuitive button sequences.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The control and missions revolve around simply blowing things up, but after the novelty of reducing everything to a cinder fades, what players are left with is an average shooter.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It looks fantastic, it controls well, and it’s the kind of meaty gaming experience that could keep you busy for weeks. Be warned, though, the difficulty here is off the scale.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A standard expansion pack and nothing more.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Despite the control flaws and graphic blemishes this game is a marvelous presentation of soccer, albeit slightly watered down for the masses.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Although unforgiving design elements detract a bit from the overall fun factor, Maximo remains an exceptionally enjoyable and well-made game.

    • 83 Critic Score
    NCAA Football, usually regarded as the redheaded stepchild of the sports world, has finally come into its own this year with refined gameplay and jaw dropping graphics to match.
    • 78 Metascore

    Rez
    The vibration gets so intense that your hands nearly become numb from overstimulation.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    With intuitive control, superb graphics, and a catchy soundtrack, Splashdown is an excellent Jet Ski racing game.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It still has some issues that need addressing for 2K4, but even a flawed NHL 2K3 is leagues better than EA Sports' latest.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The added force powers are handy, but they don’t dramatically change the way the game is played.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Imaginative tracks, cool tricks, a real sense of speed, and loads of unlockable stuff all add up to a racing experience that is not to be missed.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A really fun game with great music, solid graphics, and a good degree of difficulty, but its very basic gameplay and lack of options doesn’t give it a whole lot of staying power.

    • 83 Critic Score
    A choppy framerate and a low resolution display (for those of us who haven't yet upgraded to HDTV) keep UC from matching its PC counterpart.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Uniquely strategic gameplay, pulse-pounding action, and even a bit of stealth.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Def Jam Vendetta makes its strange combination of license and genre work well. It is a wrestling game done right and a must play for any fan of the scripted sport.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's got an engaging storyline, interesting characters, lots of plot twists, and a host of nifty options and gameplay features.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    More appealing than the original.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Essential fun and surprising depth combine to make this one of the best party games on the Xbox.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Multiplayer modes, over 20 varied stages and thirty characters that can be unlocked give the game enough substance to keep you interested for weeks.
