    Malice is, from top to bottom, about as standard and, unfortunately, boring a platformer as you can find. None of it is bad, but sadly, nothing about Malice is fun, interesting, exciting, new, or worth your thirty bucks.
  2. It's crippled by an over-reliance on the worst game design cliche ever invented: too much collecting. [Aug 2004, p.102]
  3. The story isn’t gripping at all which has been replaced with repetitiveness.
  4. It provides absolutely nothing that hasn't been seen and done countless times before and done better at that. Unless you're absolutely rapt with morbid curiosity about how Malice ultimately turned out, your time and money are definitely best spent elsewhere.
  5. Unfortunately, while brevity is the soul of wit, even at $29.99, it's hard to recommend a purchase of a game that can be beaten in a rental, and offers nothing beyond that in the way of replay value.

    Oh dear Aaron, this is disappointing. Uninspired level design, and outdated gameplay. A shame.

    C'mon. This junk shoulda' been canned after all. Looks, plays, camera all are from 2001, at best....
