    A slightly flawed masterpiece, but a masterpiece nonetheless.

    It won't make you stand up and cheer, but it will keep you busy - like a good game should.

    • 90 Critic Score
    The best version of this game lives on the Box - accept no substitute.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Better on the Box. Sharper, fuller, and more variable detail, excellent sound, and precise controls are all contained herein, along with the patented Crash game play that makes this such a fan favorite.

    If you have an X-Box, this is the game to beat for playability and entertainment.

    It's the same Gauntlet, and we're tired of running it.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It doesn't damage the reputation of fantasy games, but it doesn't make any spectacular leaps and bounds with it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's more like a reworking of "Prince of Persia."
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fast and fun.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The seamless controls and extensive levels can only be matched by the spectacular graphics and superior sound.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What it lacks in the variety of teams it makes up for in the variety of options.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A tired remake of "Tomb Raider" without the intrigue.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Simply the best rally game for the PS2, and directly in competition with Rallisport for the hearts and minds of rally racing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This one is just for the old-schoolers who want to remember when gaming was a niche and not a business.

    One of the best looking mini-baseball games ever.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    NBA 2K2 still showcases the best basketball game out there - steady game play, dazzling visuals, realistic sound.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The camera angle problems are not show-stoppers - Pac-Man is still fun to play and easy to pick up for the most part.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An awesome shooter with superb graphics, and the thumb-numbing game play is challenging but not too hard.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Triple Play 2002 will appeal to a large range of fans, but will especially appeal to those who are scared off by more complex or technical baseball games, like "All Star 2003."
    • 77 Metascore

    NFL Blitz isn't about football - it's about fun, and it delivers that message with extreme results.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's a beast-changing, head-slapping, jaw-ripping brawler with attitude and style and sex - always a good combination.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Cleaner looking than "Triple Play," but lacking solid mechanics in the pitching and fielding.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Needs a little more time in the development pot - there's real sparks of fun and imagination here, but the sluggish pace outstrips the game's pick-up-and-play feel.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's not simply an all out brawl where the one who punches the fastest wins, but rather an elegant and more balanced fighting game, where knowing the combos is not enough - knowing when to use them and how to counter them counts for something as well.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A retake on the original product that yields surprisingly sharp results because of the compacted nature.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game is a lot of fun to play, regardless of how loose the controls are.
    • 73 Metascore

    EA took a static sport like snowmobiling and gave it the Tricky makeover, adding more detail, more depth to the levels, and more care in the level design.

    Hot Shots Golf 3 takes the game into a whole hilarious new direction - but the realism it loses may hinder real golf fans.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This would be considered a mission-pack add on in the PC world, but for fans of the series, it's a great new game with additional elements that enhance an old, but stable, gaming engine.
    • 71 Metascore

    SpyHunter is a lot more like those cop chase shows than you think - you may have reservations about watching (or playing), but once you get hooked, you're in for the whole hour.
