  1. It's a grand maze without dead-ends. [March 2005, p.84]
  2. The action is bewildering and frenetic, the challenge is minimal and the usual camera problems persist, but this is still an exuberantly entertaining game.
  3. Essentially an Xbox port with improved graphics. [Jan 2005, p.78]
  4. 70
    The only way that the game stands apart on the PC is the higher resolution for graphics. A gamepad is a necessity for the full experience but the presentation of the game suffers somewhat due to the complete lack of an instruction manual.
  5. A step in the right direction, adding a nice teamwork element to the game. However, it is ultimately mediocre at best, given its fair share of problems, including bad camera issues and overly simplistic gameplay.
  6. A poor man's take on the franchise's 16-bit salad days. [March 2005, p.72]
  7. Ridiculously fast, under-developed and frustrating to control. [Christmas 2004, p.119]

    I have played every version of this game and this one is the second worst. It is incredibly glitchy, when i try to play the game the camera just keeps spinning around and there is not way to stop it. go for the Gamecube version of this game, it's the best version. Full Review »
