    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]

    Def Jam Vendetta makes its strange combination of license and genre work well. It is a wrestling game done right and a must play for any fan of the scripted sport.

    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.

    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.

    Easily the best soccer game I’ve ever played.

    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.

    This is just the kind of flatly tepid, uninspired, marketing department driven pablum I was afraid Microsoft would make upon entering the console wars.

    It’s pretty much a given that beating up Nazis is inherently fun, but the developers threw in some truly entertaining wrinkles into the combat to make the Nazi-bashing especially enticing.

    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.

    Beautiful. Stunning. Gorgeous. A heart stopping, melt-in-your-pants looker. High resolution sprites and meticulously animated everything combine to make one hell of an enjoyable visual mess.

    The story is only average for a RPG (make that above average if you love the air pirates setting), the combat system is mildly interesting but lacks much in the way of depth and the presentation is a bit dated.

    This could be the best looking console game yet... Sadly for fans of the sport, the beach volleyball gameplay is just plain lacking.
    • 72 Metascore

    The efforts put into the acting and story deserve a game with better graphics, less glitches, and more refined gameplay.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Nearly everything in the game can be beaten down, picked up, thrown or in some way interacted with, and to see the effect this has on a sprawling downtown metropolis is simply breathtaking.

    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.

    • 91 Critic Score
    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.

    A standard expansion pack and nothing more.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    In this game a good offense is your best defense-attacking indiscriminately is simply more effective than trying to use the clumsy block button. There is a target button similar to Zelda and Soul Reaver, but the difficulty in selectively targeting a particular enemy is troubling.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The action is heated enough to hold your attention and the cool touches like a fantastic damage engine make it all worthwhile.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It sounds great, as all Star Wars games do, but the graphics are bland at best and nauseating at worst, and the action is a redundant mess of blaster fire and jumping puzzles.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It still has some issues that need addressing for 2K4, but even a flawed NHL 2K3 is leagues better than EA Sports' latest.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    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.
    • 69 Metascore

    While not perfect, Haven: Call of the King works on many levels—as a platformer, as vehicular racing title, as a centerpiece for fine soundtrack work.

    Now that Splinter Cell has arrived all other stealth-based titles should hang their head in shame.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The control and missions revolve around simply blowing things up, but after the novelty of reducing everything to a cinder fades, what players are left with is an average shooter.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Although the Japanese influenced gameplay is engaging at first, countless deathmatch battles and only three arenas hurt the overall appeal.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Essentially the game takes the original premise, adds a few minor twists, and slaps some mediocre next-generation 3D graphics onto the product.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    It gives players a large variety of options for both online and offline play and provides hours of gameplay with two long quests, numerous side-quests and several multiplayer modes. [Import]
