    Everything to love from the first two Tony Hawk games is back, along with more outrageous levels and more outrageous combos thanks to the revert trick.

    The first person controls work well for the most part, but we just can't ignore a few control issues that crop up at the worst possible time.

    A gaming triumph and a prime example of the reason we play games in the first place. It instilled in me a sense of awe and wonder with a game I honestly haven't felt in the series since A Link to the Past first hit the Super Nintendo.

    A game that not only looks and plays better, but also fully realizes the dream of anyone looking to fully manage their own professional team.

    The game features the absolute best training mode ever made for a fighting game.

    Although it doesn’t take advantage of the system’s capabilities, THPS3 on Xbox is still a fine port of a fantastic game.

    Now that Splinter Cell has arrived all other stealth-based titles should hang their head in shame.

    The ESPN presence makes the biggest difference...surprisingly, something as small as that goes a long way toward sucking you into the game.

    Easily the best soccer game I’ve ever played.

    Given the game’s top notch presentation, tight and accessible gameplay with considerable depth and veritable endless buffet of modes and secrets to unlock, Soul Calibur 2 is a no-brainer purchase for fighting fans. [Import]

    Little more than "NBA 2K1" with Michael Jordan, the Memphis Grizzlies, glitchy zone defense and an afterthought of a street ball mode.

    Say hello to one of the finest PS2 games yet, and the best snowboarding game ever.

    What Eternal Darkness might lack in top-notch graphics it more than makes up for with fantastic gameplay and spine-chilling atmosphere.

    Armchair quarterbacks will find plenty to like here, from the extremely deep, almost sim-like gameplay to the ability to develop a custom playbook, to the new mini-camp, which lets you unlock hidden features and teams as you play.

    Apart from the remarkable gameplay, graphics and sound, SSBM sports enormous replay value.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Clever, challenging, unique and packed with things to do. In short, it's what every game should be. Problems with the camera and some potentially maddeningly frustrating points are all that holds it back from perfection.

    With its romance, its peripheral "end of the world" premise, and its memorable cast, FFX is a game for the ages.

    Unfortunately, this version of Capcom's seminal survival horror title doesn't play as good as it looks. As a matter of fact, it plays a whole heck of a lot like the original Resident Evil.

    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.

    Tennis 2K2’s solid gameplay and impressive presentation prove that the Dreamcast still has some steam behind it.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Lush graphics and feature film-quality animation complement the fun gameplay and tight controls.

    The game falls short of putting you in the cockpit. The whole idea of a dogfight is non-existent. The enemy crafts move too quickly, abandoning any thought of pursuit.

    I shudder to think of what it looks like on HDTV... The gorgeous presentation here will likely win all the critical accolades, but there is a tricky genius to Orta's gameplay as well.

    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.

    It still has some issues that need addressing for 2K4, but even a flawed NHL 2K3 is leagues better than EA Sports' latest.

    Offers a heady, elating sense of flight, adrenaline-charged combat, perfect controls, and breathtaking visuals that will humble titles played even on the mightiest PCs.

    Graphically, Jet Set Radio Future is one of the most gorgeous games to grace a console.
    • 87 Metascore

    Not only fun to play but also quite breathtaking in its level of graphic detail.

    Every aspect of the game works tightly in conjunction, delivering an enormous amount of gaming.

    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.
