    I predict that diehards will cherish this game for ages. Unfortunately novice players will get frustrated after the love affair with the graphics ends and the real challenges begin.

    The details and references to the TV show will provide non-stop amazement.

    A very solid and entertainingly violent approximation of hockey that has its weak points (sound, fighting) but overall hits the spot just right.

    Full of strategy, tactics, bullets, and explosions, this title is a fun diversion from current squad-based shooters.

    The only big complaint to level against Godzilla is that it's a bit too simple...Call some friends over and have a blast with the multiplayer mayhem, but don't expect to be glued to the controller after they leave.

    Replay value of the main story mode is limited at best...[but it's] a fresh and fun gaming experience that you shouldn’t pass up.

    A big step in the right direction.

    The most competent Tony Hawk mimic yet.

    What really makes the game are the wealth of offensive and defensive maneuvers to choose from.

    It's still not a very deep gaming experience, but this latest installment is clearly the best since "Mortal Kombat 2," and arguably the best yet.

    Character designs are notably generic and boxy. Animation is quite stiff and the sluggish framerate does nothing to help matters. On the plus side, the environments are absolutely massive, and exhibit plenty of variety, creating a cohesive and believable alternate universe.

    Questionable camera controls, choppy graphics and sometimes frustrating gameplay are all but forgiven in the context of the rest of the game’s charms.

    The background graphics, however, ruin the overall effect. The backgrounds, while using very moderate levels of cel-shading, simply don’t look congruent to the car’s graphics.

    If players can get past the clumsy menu system and uninspired graphics, they’ll find themselves a great game.

    The multiplayer action and graphics are solid, but insanely repetitive gameplay, sluggish controls, and an impractical utilization of unlockable items handicap the title.

    Outlaw Golf's attitude lies solely in presentation, and while some may initially be turned off by the title's seemingly juvenile humor, the game's personality quickly grows on the player.

    The inclusion of four unlockable classic Pac-Man arcade games really help increase the replay value.

    A top-notch golf game perfect for anyone looking to make some digital divots.

    A beautiful action adventure that incorporates a dash of RPG and a dose of fighting game, Eve of Extinction suffers from a dull, weak plot.

    It has a few nagging flaws like the lack of a good third-person view or in-menu loading screens, but it is playable and should keep motocross fans busy.

    With the recent release of the online Sims for the PC, the PS2 port seems to fall short of greatness. Especially when you add in the slowdown issues and repetitive gameplay.

    An intelligent action title that injects some strategy into the usually mindless action genre. Although the graphics are unremarkable, and the difficulty can be unfair, the gameplay has a lot to offer.

    With an enchanting soundtrack by Yasunori Mitsuda and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, exciting turn based combat, and 80 hours of gameplay, there is a lot to like about this RPG.

    The graphics are amazing, but it’s the gameplay that will win you over.

    A great game... [but y]ou'll need to ask yourself if your attention span can tolerate a game requiring planning and strategy with sporadic action as the payoff.

    Those who hang on will discover one of the most versatile and engaging battle systems out there, along with a highly customizable magic system.

    While the gameplay isn't quite as solid as NFL 2K3's, it almost makes up for that with its thoroughly college atmosphere.

    • 75 Critic Score
    Almost every individual aspect of the game except for the camera is well executed, but the two key components of the title still don't go seem to belong together.

    For the already initiated, the new levels aren’t even worth a rental and getting used to skating with the Xbox controller can be like getting used to a splinter in your eye.

    The biggest problems with online play are the surprisingly frequent poor losers who will abandon a game at the last second to keep you from being credited with a win.
