  1. If you get your kicks from smacking gangs of vomiting men then you’re probably quite at home with the shallowness of Minority Report.

    Better than "Spiderman," but it still could have been better." [Jan 2003, p.58]

    Its boring, unimaginative combat lays shame to the fact that Philip K. Dick (whose short story the movie is based on) came up with a pretty original idea to write about.

    Repetitive above all else, the majority of the stages play out almost identically: kick butt, run away, kick butt again, run away again, repeat, and so on. [Jan 2003, p.30]
  5. Each level just feels like the last level.

    It doesn't take a mutant psychic with precognition to figure out this one's a renter. [Feb 2003, p.138]
  7. We forsee you buying this game, enjoying it at first, getting frustrated at certain parts, then putting it on your shelf after you’re done and rarely playing it again.

    Everybody runs. In the case of the lackluster 3D-adventure-cum-beat-em-up Minority Report, rest assured, they're not running to the videogame store. [Feb 2003, p.71]
  9. Minority Report does not capture the essence of the movie and ends up being a tiresome wade through piles of repetitive enemies.

    A bit of this and a bit of that, and the results are poor plot points and lousy stage design.
  11. Falls into line behind countless other film conversions, boasting low production values, an obviously rushed release and highly conventional gameplay that struggles with the controls.
  12. What made Treyarch’s "Spider-Man" engine so special was its versatility. In MR, most of the versatility was taken away by simply focusing on the fighting aspect, giving the game a repetitive feel to it throughout its 40 levels.
  13. If you’re a fan of the movie you’ll be bitterly disappointed at the butchering the license has received, whilst even action fans will be put off after they’ve punched, kicked and thrown their way through the first 10 missions; avoid!!!

    Too bad those psychics couldn't have predicted how lame this franchise would turn out, they might have been able to stop it long before production started.
  15. 50
    A game full of lousy gameplay and poor visual effects that will only make you ask, “Why?!” ... Clearly belongs in the bin of horrendous movie-to-game translations.

    Decent is about the most I can say for it... Frustrating, checkpoint-free stages only furthered my desire to quit playing. [Feb 2003, p.108]

    Lacking in atmosphere and imagination, this game pales in comparison to the brilliant film it bases itself off. With a broken economy, gadgetsLacking in atmosphere and imagination, this game pales in comparison to the brilliant film it bases itself off. With a broken economy, gadgets and weapons that simply don't work the way they should, dull sequences that feel like they go on forever, this game is a real disappointment and I salute anyone who is actually able to go on and finish it.
