    The inclusion of familiar characters is no doubt a bonus to the game and the way the developers have tried to move the gameplay from those games to a new medium was very ambitious and in some cases did not come off, but others like Samba De Amigo and Space Channel 5 can very easily be ported to a new control system.

    If you simply need a game to continue the style of titles such as "Grabbed by the Ghoulies" then The Haunted Mansion will definitely suffice, but don't expect the same level of graphics quality or gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A decent game which is heavily pulled down by the lack of save points.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It may be a little cheaper but its worth forking out the extra for "Flatout" unless the modes unique to this game really impress you.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Possibly the best choice for those wanting a Sims game without having to do the house decorations and design, and for those who just want to be able to keep playing and playing without worrying to much about time management and having to deal with mundane tasks in an on going fashion.

    Novices, however, should start with simpler fare such as the Baldur's Gate games, which are easy budget pickups these days, or the excellent X-Men: Legends for that matter.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The problem with A&A, besides the negative points brought forward above, is the WW2 and RTS genres of gaming are two very prestigious genres, and it doesn't do enough to top what else is out there on offer.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The huge amount of vehicles makes the repetitive nature of the game not such a big problem and the physics of the game keep it in the realism side of things, but also offers pick up and play.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It's a decent game but it’s by no means the AAA title the original game was.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    If you go in with a mindset of finding a 2D version of GTA3 with a few small problems you will probably enjoy the game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A game that won't appeal to fans of traditional role playing games but is very much suited for those who want to get into the genre without being defeated because they didn't use a particular style of armor or haven't leveled enough.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It's not the best game for Xbox Live, but its by far not the worst either.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The new additions probably aren't enough for owners of the PS2 version to shell out the full asking price again for the Xbox version but for those new to the franchise it offers a decent experience which should keep fans of ninja games happy for a while, despite its flaws.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Just why multiplayer was left out really will be never known, but it is a mistake that Brian Fargo, a reknowned game developer, should not have made.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Really only for the die hard Bond fans and those who just can't wait to get some Xbox Live 007 action.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game for the most part works quite well, but the repetitive nature, boring levels and lack of variety in mission objectives keeps this from being as impressive as a "Rainbow Six" game.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While the gameplay is well supplemented with the ability to control time and space in certain aspects, the problem is these aspects are too scripted, and even when the game isn't telling you exactly what to do and how to do it, it is still too obvious what works where, basically creating predictable and unimaginative gameplay.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It features a great variety of modes and decent gameplay mechanics but when it boils down to it the different modes are built around the same engine just with different attributes such as length of time, tasks at hand etc.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Whilst the game does have camera issues and the combat can be clunky at times, if you're looking for something to keep you going after a game like "Pandora Tomorrow", then Alias offers some decent action based gameplay.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The online play keeps the game from being a complete 'once-n-shelve' title but if you're only a casual gamer without the online ability or an interest in the franchise from the past there is better tactical action games already available on the market.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Despite the easy style of the game, it can be enjoyed by both adults and children.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Only a single player game with not much to offer in comparison to better known platform franchises.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The visuals are simply amazing, particularly for a title from this genre, and the depth of the units isn't too shabby either, however it lacks that finishing polish and precise execution that would have made it that much better.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Although the single player campaign is fairly in depth in terms of adding parts to your cars and offering quite a number of tracks, the fact you only have four cars to choose from really hurts the game in the long run as does the way the game becomes relatively hard very quickly.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Once you look past the fairly average and repetitive gameplay between puzzles, some decent gameplay can be found and the storyline is something which really helps the game remain interesting once the repetition begins to hit.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It is a shame that the storyline wasn't fleshed out a bit more with unique levels as it would have made it a far better game but really, only the comedy saves this one from becoming an average title.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There isn't much wrong with Downhill Domination other then the fact that the source material doesn't make for a great video game in terms of length or replay value.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you simply can't get enough of street racing games then SRS will suffice, but for those owners of other games of this nature, there is nothing new on offer here.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're after a game where the rules are almost as basic as shoot anything that moves then Kill.Switch will appeal to you, but for a more in depth storyline and military experience, its best to look elsewhere.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The driving sections of the game are superbly executed and feature some great gameplay but the on foot sections can cause a great deal of frustration.
