  1. A great title...It's only good for playing with friends.
  2. At times engaging and at others frustrating, but still sporting a striking visual design, Fuzion Frenzy is worth a rental for your next party or to check out for an eventual buy.
  3. 83
    Hands-down the best party game out there. None of the fluff or simplicity of "Mario Party," and bigger, brighter game concepts than "Crash Bash."
  4. With its frantic pace and gorgeous visuals, it’ll have everyone in the room clamoring for a shot at the action.
  5. Once you look past the seemingly innocent façade, you will find yourself tossed around the proverbial meat grinder.
  6. Fuzion Frenzy is actually worth playing with your friends. Not just for laughs either, but for the entertainment value. It's hard to believe, I know. But this game is a blast.
  7. 80
    Just the fact that this game has such variety in a limited genre is more than enough reason to give this game a spin. It's interesting to see how they jazzed up party gaming.
  8. The only real stumbling blocks on its way to being the Super Star is the lack of customization options.
  9. One of the best "party" games I've ever played.
  10. Fast, furious, four-player party action that satisfies the old-school gamer and casual gamer alike. [Dec 2001]
  11. Fast, fun, and graphically pleasing. It's an awesome party game, and it's shortcomings in story, character choice, voice work, [and] single-player mode can't change that.
  12. After the initial love wears off, you will find it harder and harder to get the passion back—unless you’re playing with 3 others.
  13. In all my life, I have never played a party game that has kept me interested for so long and as much fun as Fuzion Frenzy can be.
  14. Unfortunately, if you don’t often host gaming sessions with your buddies, you won’t get the same satisfaction competing against AI bots, especially with the lack of a reward system.
  15. It works in an amateurish sort of way, and it makes for a fun, yet thoroughly unimpressive title.
  16. This isn't the kind of game that will hold your attention for an hour, and if you have that much time to kill, there are plenty of other games out there to be enjoyed, both solo and multiplayer.
  17. 70
    Good but unspectacular graphics and above-average sounds almost forgive the simple-but-clunky controls.
  18. 68
    There are three AI settings, but 'easy' is little more than an excuse to explore the game types without any real competition. 'Medium' and 'hard' pit you against 'way too hard' and 'next to impossible' opponents, respectively.
  19. Can be fun for short periods of time. The longest game will last about 45 minutes, at the end of which you'll have little desire to come back for more.
  20. The majority of the mini-games are terrific fun, but it does mean that playing this game solo isn’t nearly as enjoyable as playing it with friends.
  21. This nuts multiplayer "party game" is, happily, something of a treat. That said, shun solo mode like the plague. [Jan 2002, p.96]
  22. Mindless fun. [Dec 2001, p.108]
  23. 60
    It's offbeat, diverse, and boisterous, and the cool graphics and variety of things to do give "Frenzy" a singular distinction in the Xbox library.
  24. What keeps FF from being a truly superb game are the vague onscreen instructions and the confusion that often results from cramming too many special effects onto the screen. [Jan 2002, p.26]
  25. The single-player experience becomes dull after a few games thanks in part to ruthlessly difficult computer opponents.
  26. As a rental for a night with friends, Fuzion Frenzy rocks.
  27. It might be best just to rent it whenever you're planning to have company, and steer clear of buying it altogether.
  28. One of the least exciting party games I’ve ever played. [Jan 2002, p.228]
