    Repetitive missions, bad flight controls, and too many robots make this game quite non-super. [Dec 2002, p.60]

    What keeps the game from taking off is the overly simplistic episodic nature of the missions set before you...The wacky control configuration also makes your heat vision, ice breath, X-ray vision, and superspeed incredibly difficult to use on the fly. [4 Oct 2002, p.157]

    It sucks when you can finish a game in an afternoon. Better than the previous version, though.
