  1. The game's mechanics are just too elementary for any gamer older than thirteen, and even that might be too old for this decidedly kiddie fare.
  2. The game was extremely easy to beat on both difficulty settings, but again, the game is geared toward children.
  3. With bright and vibrant colours, a steady framerate and Buzz himself to lead the way, this game is more above than below average this time around.
  4. 65
    Without the heart or soul of Toy Story, what you're left with is an empty space suit set adrift in the universe.
  5. The variety of ways to progress in the game should keep them glued to the set. But be warned: there's very little here for us older gamers.
  6. It's still tough to move Buzz around, and good luck trying to aim and shoot at a baddie.
  7. 60
    The music's jaunty, the sound effects "zappy"; it looks okay, it plays okay, and it's all perfectly diverting for a few hours or so.
  8. The control and camera angles are both horrible, the graphics are N64 quality at best (which is not what you'd hope for from a game based on the "Toy Story" license running on a 128-bit system), the missions are simple and repetitive, and even the humor and charm of the "Toy Story" movies are missing.
  9. In this confusing and muddled 3D platformer, Buzz just can't run straight, and that makes him one annoyed lead character in a crippled game that's really hard to like despite its eminently likable star.
  10. While Buzz is okay for the kids, for the rest of us it ends up feeling like a pretty hollow experience. The gameplay is just too limited and uninspired.
  11. BLSC has one heck of a stiff control that makes turning around or moving Buzz more painful and unnecessarily cumbersome than it should.
  12. The concept itself sounds intriguing, but the overall game feels somewhat monotonous.
  13. Experienced and discerning gamers, however, would do well to steer clear of BLSC, as the game is simplistic and light.
  14. If you are expecting anything remotely as cool as "Toy Story," you will be sorely disappointed.
  15. I just can't imagine gamers of any age getting any enjoyment out of this game.
  16. I wish there really were a Buzz Lightyear, because he would probably beat the crap out of the guys who made this game.
