    To put it simply, the game is horribly slow. The framerate is so devastating, that at a point during the second level, playing the game becomes literally impossible...One of the biggest disappointments in my gaming career.

    The senseless slaughter of innocents continues with our boy in the chicken suit, Billy being subjected to countless humiliating deaths thanks to a brutally merciless camera. Whether it's a sneak attack by a pack of bouncing bat things or a sudden drop that seemingly comes out of nowhere, rest assured you're going to be just as surprised the 1000th time as you were the 1st.

    If you can take the idea of spending about 20 hours driving around and only occasionally hoofing it for some alternate mayhem, The Simpsons: Hit & Run is perfect. It's infused with a great sense of humor, and there are plenty of things to do.

    Perhaps the single major flaw that stops Final Fantasy Tactics Advance from scoring a straight 10/10 is it's shop/inventory system. Purchasing new weapons and armor for your clan is basically a trial and error experience until you know who can use what type of weapon.

    It's seamless marriage of large scale action and RPG elements set in an ancient Chinese environment make it one of the more original games on the market today.

    A brilliant masterpiece in every sense of the word... Simply put, you must play this game if you have even the slightest interest in the strategy role-playing genre.

    While what's here is very good, the problem is that there are perhaps twenty seconds of original composition in the whole game! The rest just loops for all eternity, prodding you to skip past menu after menu just so you can escape the irritation of not-quite-grinding guitar and the like.

    You've seldom seen an interface as polished as this one.

    The word 'masterful' comes to mind. But then, it comes to mind in regards to nearly any aspect of the game you might care to name.

    Gameplay is fun and addictive but unfortunately it rarely gets the heart pumping like the real pinball experience can.

    The single, most atmospheric survival horror game around. It goes so far beyond the greatness achieved in the 2nd installment that one must wonder, where will it all go from here?

    More of the same.

    Perhaps Bioware were being too ambitious with the graphics, or perhaps they really did run out of time, but either way, there are moments when KOTOR moves like a dog.

    Just that sort of game. It sucks you in and won't let go until suddenly you're late for work or the morning sun is peeking through the blinds and you realize you stayed up all night again.

    If you can grin and bear the sometimes overly cutesy presentation, you'll find a game with more options for customization than us lowly gamers deserve (and besides, you can make some disgusting doodles as compensation).

    This wonderful plot, as charming and exciting as it may be, sadly interferes with what was once a staple of the franchise, the ability to play the first 8 stages in the order you desire.

    Its coolest feature is the glossy cover art. Dig inside and what you'll find is a game devoid of personality, thrills, and fun. In short, Enter the Matrix is everything it shouldn't have been, and nothing more.

    More of the same but without the heart.

    In so many ways that truly count, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is the best 2D outing the series has seen since "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night."

    'Very cool' can easily describe just about everything there is to say about this title. There aren't a lot of good puzzle games out there that copy the Tetris style yet somehow improve on it in some ways, but Super Puzzle Fighter II is one such game.

    With a few more dungeons and a lot less sailing, this is one title that would have definitely deserved to be considered perfect. As is, though, it's a flawed masterpiece.

    The level of detail is also amazing.

    An addictive game. Although the multiplayer part lacks in quality, it certainly makes up for it in the single player game.

    This sense of fun defies all odds. I never would have thought it, but these encounters with computer-generated pals can sometimes be even more enjoyable than the real thing.

    It's an experience you will tire of. The volleyball is good, and fun. The girls are gorgeous. The music isn't annoying. And there's the two-player mode. But just like real volleyball, the whole experience can only remain fresh for so long.

    An excellent game that successfully combines a unique blend of vehicular combat and stunning graphics to create one of the most exciting FPS Xbox experiences thus far.

    • 93 Critic Score
    One of the best shooters ever crafted for the Xbox or any system, a graphical delight with enough depth that even after you've completed it once or even a few times, you'll be likely to come back for another play.

    It may have its flaws, but at the same time LOTR:TTT is a hundred times better than the rest of the regurgitated flotsam that constitutes licensed gaming as a whole.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    As a result of the somewhat simplistic design (which allows you to enjoy Ghost Recon even if you've not played a lot of tactical shooters) and the valuable multi-player modes, this is one game that may not receive a really high score but still comes highly recommended.

    For the first time, story is really a driving force. No, it's nothing truly fascinating, but it's less shallow than fans might expect.
