  1. There’s just no way to make Aquaman more exciting than beached jellyfish. It’s time to let the scaly superhero sleep with the fishes already.
  2. The battles are well-executed, if a little slow, but the overall experience is one-dimensional. [Oct 2003, p.140]

    Much like Aquaman himself: pathetic...unoriginal, uninspired, and sleep-inducing.

    I will say one thing about TDK and Aquaman: The comic book character is unbearably pitiful and TDK managed to translate that perfectly into a just-as-pitiful game.
  5. Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.
  6. Call me crazy, but punching an enemy while doing the doggy paddle doesn't exactly generate a whole lot of excitement. [Oct 2003, p.131]
  7. In case it isn't abundantly obvious, this game is bad. It's horrible. It's awful... might just be the worst game on the Gamecube.
  8. Unfortunately, no matter how much you change his appearance or try to play up his role as King of Atlantis and his responsibility for patrolling the majority of the planet, Aquaman still sucks.

    They destroyed another hero with repetitive game play and idiot things.
    And you know what happen if you (somehow) beat the game?
    IT CRASHES
    I give 1 only because you can return the game to the store.
