Midway Games Mortal Kombat: Deception

Aside from these issues, Deception is an impressive addition to the Mortal Kombat Universe, one that handily picks up where Deadly Alliance left off. The included game modes expands the replayability for Deception significantly, and the stability of...

Sony Sly 2: Band of Thieves

The limited replayability aside, every gamer with a PS2 should own this title. Sly 2: Band of Thieves takes the solid premise of the first title, captures the good elements and radically expands upon them to create one of the best platformers ever seen...

Konami Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

What else is there to say? Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence took a great game and made it better, added a whole other online game to the mix plus a wealth of extras and then chopped the price nearly in half. Considering the product they started with was...

Take-Two Interactive Software Red Dead Revolver

Had the developers of Red Dead Revolver paid as much attention to mining classic video game control as they did to beloved movie scenes, they might have had a perfect game on their hands. As it is, Red Dead Revolver is a damn fine game, proving that...

Sony EyeToy Play 2

Overall, Play 2 is a vast improvement on the EyeToy formula, and an engaging diversion for a short while. A strong experience for multiple players, this would be a perfect title for families or parties, although you might find yourself bored with the...

Sony Tourist Trophy

In the end, Tourist Trophy succeeds at providing a solid Gran Turismo experience with motorcycles. If you've loved that series, you'll like this. Even though I have mixed feelings about that series, I found a lot to like here. The use of bikes really...

Sony Gran Turismo 4

All that said, the largest reason why this isn't a fully complete review is not because of the lack on online play, itself a significant omission in current racing titles. No, the biggest reason itself was that due to the unlocked nature of the game,...

Sony Hot Shots Tennis

Fortunately, that aspect of the game, while flawed, is deep enough to keep coming back to time and time again. If you're new to the series, or on the fence about tennis games in general, a rental is probably best. Thanks to its depth and ease of use,...

Koei Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires

That being said, it is laudable to note that this is the first significant tweak that's been made to the DW formula in some time. Throwing many of the "expansion pack" elements aside for an actual shift in gameplay, the inclusion of planning elements...

Capcom Entertainment Maximo vs Army Of Zin

This isn't to say that Army of Zin is a bad game, however. It's definitely a worthy successor of Ghosts To Glory, and its numerous weapon and gameplay enhancements make it better than the first Maximo title by far. It's simply held back from greatness...

Vivendi Universal Hunter The Reckoning: Wayward

Minor objections aside, Wayward takes the gameplay found with Hunter: The Reckoning and the World of Darkness Universe and expands it to a fully fleshed out adventure. A much deeper, more involving story, packed with lots of secrets and more combat,...

Activision MTX: Mototrax

MTX Mototrax is somewhat of a mixed racer in the end. The career mode and the concepts behind the single player game are definitely innovative, and are a solid addition to the racing genre. However, a somewhat tenuous connection between modes, a...

THQ Juiced

At best, Juiced is a mediocre ride. It's got a few shiny bits in the form of the team racing and gambling portions, but then the rough edges come roaring out of the gate and kill whatever joy you had at playing the game.

Square Enix Star Ocean Till the end of Time

Overall though, Star Ocean, Till The End of Time is a great sequel for the franchise. An innovative battle system and plenty of secrets that can be unlocked makes Star Ocean appeal to even the largest RPG detractor. Even if you're not a fan of RPG's,...

Eidos Interactive Tomb Raider The Angel Of Darkness

I didn't buy into the grandiose hype surrounding Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness prior to its retail release, and in truth I've never been much of a Tomb Raider fan to begin with, so its many shortcomings came as no surprise to me and its many bright...
