    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game is rated "E" for everyone, and it will likely find ways to bore and possibly annoy everyone who plays it.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Most gamers won't be able to think straight, let alone execute the tons of mouse clicks necessary to keep from being overwhelmed.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If you like your trivia game shows dry, humorless, and without flash, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Trivia Challenge budget title from Gunnar Games is a must for your collection.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This "nail-biting thriller" has more plod to the plot than most Agatha Christie novels, and use of the psychic abilities of the protagonist, Joseph Shamley, is sorely needed to make sense of some of the baffling leaps in continuity.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The translation is nearly arcade perfect. The only thing missing is a full-sized sniper rifle, which ends up making a big difference.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the more annoying aspects of Real Pool is the control system, which is extremely unintuitive.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Just plain old Bust-A-Move, the same Bust-A-Move that we've been playing for the last decade.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This is definitely a game that needs a little tweaking before it will ever become a serious PS2 franchise.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The simple fact of the matter is that the Championship Mode, which by all standards should offer a wealth of challenges, is much too easy and predictable to keep even casual fans interested for very long.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The storyline for this game is dull.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Only enjoyable if you equate fun with frustration, but most gamers have long since outgrown that philosophy, as have most games. Yet Gradius III and IV clings to its roots like a long rotting tooth.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The action tends to get repetitive, which is not helped by the lack of enemy variety.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If you're really hungry for a brainless slasher game with a medieval theme, you might want to give this one a try. For the more discerning gamer, you should consider purchasing a 32-bit PlayStation game (such as "Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver") and wait until something better comes around.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    At its core, Sunny Garcia Surfing has the making of a good surfing simulation, but the final product is so barebones that it seems more like a technology demo than a game.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointment.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The racing environments suffer from the PlayStation 2's notorious texture limitations.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, the game drains any excitement out of controlling a dragon and quickly becomes a mediocre flying shooter.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It has some serious flaws in the gameplay that ultimately keep it from joining the ranks of the truly inspired wrestling titles.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Yet another Olympic-style contest failing to deliver gold when it comes to the most important aspect of any title: gameplay.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game swings and misses in so many areas that it ends up alienating arcade fans and simulation fans alike.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The main disappointment is that Mad Maestro! doesn't really simulate the feel of conducting an orchestra.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The underlying gameplay, which basically consists of herding animals, just isn't enough to prop up the game in its current form.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately FireBlade's visuals are a notch below most offerings for 2002, but the control is what ultimately keeps this title grounded.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, these "real-world" feelings are nothing more than lapses in programming in this action/simulation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The story is fairly solid, though sci-fi based, and the background and environments are quite beautiful in places, but the voice-acting, pace, gameplay, and interface conspire to set the entire production only slightly above amateur material.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Feels like some goofy little game you might download for free on the Internet and play for a couple of minutes.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An awkward interface, combined with a limited plot, makes for an unfulfilling rote adventure.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There are several logic flaws that severely diminish the game's storyline.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's very short and predictable, leaving the graphics to stand on their own as the best feature of the game.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An inordinate number of doors slows the pace down as the hero must usually search for switches to open them, often having to kill monsters to get there, and all too often, the monster doesn't show up until Rick reaches the door.
