  1. Official Xbox Magazine
    Not only is this not very challenging, it's just plain boring after two or three levels. [Feb 2003, p.70]
  2. The A.I. featured in the game is pretty much an utter embarrassment.
  3. 40
    Unfortunately, the rather simple controls lack any sort of considerable depth that would keep the game interesting. In fact, most of the time, just hitting random buttons will pull off some pretty impressive punches, kicks, and flips.
  4. 39
    Dynamic action elements careened downhill into a muddy bog of repetition, lack of vision and general malaise, leaving gamers with a dummed-down, half-baked game.
  5. The unfulfilling combat system and poorly implemented stealth mode turn up the frustration factor to a level where even the most die-hard Alba fan will turn back to reruns rather than finish this game.
  6. Suffers from unforgivable repetitive levels and strikes in the gameplay department that are hard to forget.
  7. The manual actually lists such devastating moves as Punch, Punch, Punch. Or you can top that one with Punch, Punch, Punch, Punch. And even Punch, Punch, Punch, Punch, Punch. (I am not kidding, it's actually in the manual)
  8. Xbox Nation Magazine
    [Cameron's] going to want to dump every copy of this interactive embarrassment bearing his name into a cold, harsh place that never sees the light of day. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.89]

    This game was amazing. With its intense action, Max shows her true attitude.
