  1. The setting for a really interesting adventure is present and the hero has a really nifty aquatic gift, but the end result is disastrous thanks to poor execution and a weak story with no real payoff.
  2. It totally lacks imagination or polish. Toss this one back. [Nov 2003, p.102]
  3. There’s just no way to make Aquaman more exciting than beached jellyfish. It’s time to let the scaly superhero sleep with the fishes already.
  4. A subpar effort marred by weak graphics and terribly repetitive gameplay. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.87]
  5. It's a bad game that needs to be reviewed so other gamers out there can avoid being sucked into the whirlpool of uninspired gameplay, bland graphics, and generalized mediocrity that colors the entirety of the title.
  6. 25
    The gameplay is old and unoriginal, the graphics are decent, the sound is horrible and the game itself is a real waste.
  7. Aquaman is to underwater action what the man of steel is to airborne antics - crappy - and on Xbox nonetheless. [Oct 2003, p.73]
  8. Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.
  9. A pathetic example of rushed development, and no one should be forced to witness the results. Sadly enough, Aquaman’s first shot at videogame stardom would have been more appropriate on another console five years ago.
  10. I'd say it was as horrible as the N64 "Superman" atrocity, but since Aquaman has always been a lame character, having a crappy game is at least conceptually sound, given the subject matter. [Oct 2003, p.139]
  11. 20
    If you like boring, repetitive, badly done combat, then run, don't walk, to the store and pick this bomb up.
  12. If you see this game on a store shelf, swim, don’t dog paddle, as fast as you can in the opposite direction.
  13. The graphics blow, the control is as responsive as Anna Nicole Smith's husband, the animation is an insult to those 60's Hulk cartoons with the retarded theme song.
