    Malice is so generic and mediocre that its release only serves to spoil what little status it had as the punchline of a joke.
  2. Lastly, for some reason, the rumble feature with the controller is done way too much. The controller shakes during this game more than any other PS2 game I've ever played and all I did was jump.
  3. The gameplay is the equivalent of chewing a piece of gum all afternoon - inoffensive, but you just want to spit it out after a while. [Sept 2004, p.99]
  4. This is an average platformer. Everything from the double jump and the by-the-book boss fights to the pickups and the 'special moves' feel...well...overused.

    The parts of this game that work are way to easy. Can't say anything about the end of the game though as the game always freezes while loading the level called "the head eater". Its not a disc read problem, the ps2 just freezes. It seems to have issues with slim ps2's (others have also reported this). Don't waste your money on this one. Its a turd. Full Review »
