  1. Rather from the bold, unique effort I hoped it would be, it's a weak, contrived bore that never gets off the ground. A four alarm blaze? More like a soggy day-old campfire.
  2. 40
    Has its moments, but it doesn't offer enough reward for braving the flames.
  3. Misses the mark completely due to its slow pace and boring gameplay. Fire bad, indeed.

    My all time favorite game. This is a must have for any PS2 owner. I was completely enthralled the entire time I played this game. This is a game that is easy to love. The graphics still hold up well even today, the missions are downright fun and the hazardous environment around you makes the gameplay never have a dull moment.
    The only bad thing I have to say about this game is the item selection screen. I wish they had implemented hot keys so I wouldn't need to pause the game every time I needed to use the Fire Axe.
