    Its weak event lineup will leave it in a prime spot to be overcome once "International Track and Field" enters the competition.

    Nothing more than a fun, nostalgic 2D platforming romp that will only appeal to true hard-core fans.

    A graphical and technological marvel that offers slick graphics, smooth online play, and groundbreaking communication features. You owe it to yourself to experience it.

    Definitely more interesting than most third-person action games, though it's hindered by a variety of interface problems.

    On paper, the idea sounds great (and the game has been a huge hit in Europe), but the final product flat out stinks.

    Ends up being a quirky gem in the Dreamcast catalog thanks to rock-solid gameplay, great graphics, and a loopy sense of humor. Best of all, players are guaranteed to see improvement in their typing if they log some time into the game.

    If you could save the game anywhere you wanted during the RTS and RPG modes, it'd be easy to put aside its lack of originality and recommend it as a reasonably entertaining game, something to tide gamers over while they wait for the next really big RTS or RPG.

    A good diversion for bored cyber-deer hunters itching for diverse creatures that stalk back, but it's obvious that this series is falling somewhat behind the curve.

    Although the sheer volume of wrestling personalities and gameplay options prevent it from being a complete write-off, it still ranks somewhere between late-night infomercials and the Jerry Springer Show for outright entertainment value.

    Boasting some of the most impressive physics and visuals ever to find their way into a current-generation console racer, VP is another of those damnable "must-have" titles for anyone who appreciates a finely tuned driving experience mated to state-of-the-art graphics.

    Even though the multiplayer games offer a bit of fun for a few hours (blowing your friends up is always entertaining), WDL falls short of our expectations by failing to deliver the kind of unadulterated explosive combat we had hoped for.

    Although the game may look like a kids' title, Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers has enough depth and challenge to keep even the most seasoned gamer busy.
    • CNET Gamecenter
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    By no means a bad game, but it's going to require a lot more than a quick tune-up and lube job if it ever wishes to turn the corner and become a great PS2 racing game.

    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite its humongous selection of teams and clean-looking graphics, this version of Sony's college-hoops franchise is just as horrible as last year's "NCAA Final Four" on the PSX, thanks to lackluster, unbalanced gameplay and an incomplete control scheme.

    Despite its flaws, serious Quake III fans will want to snatch this up right away.

    Although slightly better than "NFL GameDay 2001," and we mean slightly, GameBreaker 2001 falls way short of our expectations because of its poor gameplay and spotty AI.

    Despite the graphical shortcomings, Star Wars Episode I: Battle for Naboo offers some of the best shooter action on the Nintendo 64, especially now that the system is hurting for good titles.

    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Most gamers will enjoy the game's straightforward approach, and there is plenty for hard-core fans to sink their teeth into.

    While there are a few interesting spots and plot points, Evil Dead the game has managed to turn one of the most original and entertaining of all B-horror-film franchises into nothing more than a boring, uninspired, and pedestrian attempt to cash in on a license.

    Despite its flaws and little imperfections, it still manages to deliver a fun gaming experience...though we can't help but feel that it's missing something...(multiplayer).

    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This game not only has everything that an add-on pack should have -- fresh units, a new campaign, and new multiplayer maps and modes -- but it has one thing that most don't: a goose-egg price tag.

    • 40 Critic Score
    Fails to deliver a compelling gaming experience for so many reasons that it should've stayed in paperback form.

    • 60 Critic Score
    The slow-paced gameplay and monotonous platform-style action is likely to grate on your nerves and provide more than a few bouts of exhausted frustration.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Casual gamers, however, should skip this title (unless they're WWII plane enthusiasts), because the learning curve is steep.

    • 70 Critic Score
    An incredibly deep and versatile tactical battle simulator, which is fun at first, but not complete enough to provide a compelling long-term play experience.

    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Even if you're a huge fan of the Batman cartoons or comic books, steer clear of this disaster of an action game.
    • CNET Gamecenter
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A light and fluffy offering that's just right for kids, albeit a bit too shallow for more mature gamers looking for a challenge.
    • CNET Gamecenter
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solid, fun to play, and irritatingly addictive.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The premise is twisted, and the game looks hauntingly beautiful; if only it weren't lacking in a few key gameplay areas, it would easily be one of the most fun, interesting, and memorable games of the last few years.
