Madden NFL 2002
The game manages to one-up last year's Madden in most categories.
Mario Party 3
Hudson's dedication to solid, addictive puzzle gaming that makes for a wholly enjoyable multiplayer experience is apparent.
Dr. Mario 64
Dr. Mario is a legitimate and satisfying puzzle game that is executed rather nicely in this four-player-focused package.
Pokemon Stadium 2
If you do have a Transfer Pak, want to get more out of Gold or Silver, and enjoy a lot of battling, then Stadium 2 is a complete package and is definitely worth picking up.
Aidyn Chronicles: The First Mage
The developers fared well in bringing some role-playing game conventions into the third dimension, but they weren't as successful with others.
Conker's Bad Fur Day
The premise of the game is gimmicky, but after its sordid skin is peeled away, a true gem of a 3D platformer is revealed.
Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers
The game is brief, but the tale it tells provides plenty of classic Scooby-Doo antics.
With stunning graphics, excellent sound, and extremely solid gameplay, Paper Mario is a quality game on all fronts.
Mega Man 64
Those who missed out on the PlayStation version could still find a good bit of entertainment value here, but this dated title simply can't compete on the same level as current software.
Disney's Donald Duck Goin' Quackers
Those who want a deeper, more satisfying platform adventure should probably save this for a weekend rental.
Star Wars: Episode I Battle for Naboo
Even with the graphical faults and the general lack of innovation over its predecessor, Battle for Naboo is still a fun mission-based shooter, as well as one of the best Episode I titles to hit the market yet.
WCW Backstage Assault
It's hard to recommend a wrestling game that doesn't contain any actual in-the-ring wrestling.
Razor Freestyle Scooter
Ride Razor scooters through levels filled with ramps, rails, and half-pipes.
Looney Tunes: Space Race
Space Race probably wasn't the best game to port to the PS2 untouched, though Looney Tunes fans ought to give it a look.
Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
Based on the cartoon series, you take on the role of the new Batman and must save Gotham City from the Joker and his henchmen.
The challenging breadth of the adventure, the richly detailed graphics, varied gameplay, killer sound, and multiplayer mode all fuse into one amazingly fun experience.
WWF No Mercy
If you're still drooling over Wrestlemania 2000, then the roster updates, graphical refinements, bonus secrets, and new modes found in WWF No Mercy should be more than enough to keep you going for another year.
