    The underlying gameplay, which basically consists of herding animals, just isn't enough to prop up the game in its current form.

    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.
    • 49 Metascore

    This is definitely a game that needs a little tweaking before it will ever become a serious PS2 franchise.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Wrapping up this stellar package is slowdown, something inexcusable for a game comprised of 2D graphics on a 128-bit system, unintelligible speech that sounds like someone pressing the slow motion button on a cassette recording, and the typical butterflies with giant baby heads and large alien brains as bosses.

    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.

    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.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Doesn't feel like the return of a classic game so much as a poorly executed retread of a tired one.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Sonic the Hedgehog is no longer a character who can be depended upon for quality games, unlike a certain Italian plumber, a limbless alien, or even an orange bandicoot.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A 3D platformer with nice visuals and unrefined, uneven gameplay.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Only diehard supercross racing fans will be able to eke out any enjoyment at all in this inept GameCube title. Steer clear.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Uninspired.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A stuttering frame rate in a high-speed racing title absolutely kills any fun players will have with the game, and it's a shame considering how close the graphic engine tries to replicate the SSX experience.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It is the combat that is the most disappointing aspect, despite the game offering such elements as piloting buggies, donning a space suit before exiting space stations, and using jetpacks.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The main disappointment is that Mad Maestro! doesn't really simulate the feel of conducting an orchestra.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's a confusing and uninspiring game that leaves you frustrated and wanting to play something else.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mildly entertaining, though often frustrating.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, these "real-world" feelings are nothing more than lapses in programming in this action/simulation.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Once you advance through Arcade Mode, which spans 11 fighters, there’s nothing here to hold your interest. No career, no create-a-boxer, no save feature to improve on top performances or knockout times -- not even a two-player contest, which is inexcusable.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Defender proves that more is not necessarily better, especially when it comes to modes of play. Rather than take a rock solid format and enhance it through multiple variants of the same basic theme, the developers have created a mess and tried to cover it up with different versions that all have weaknesses.
    • tbd Metascore

    While Torus Games' update of Space Invaders is fine for what it is, there aren't nearly enough new features or additions to make it worthy of a purchase.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Sadly, the third time is not the charm for this series, and the developers would have been better off remaking either of the first two games and throwing in a few enhancements to increase the replay value.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Surprise, surprise: The Incredible Hulk is yet another boring superhero title on Game Boy Advance, which seems to be the refuse container of choice for action games with little to no redeeming value.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game ultimately fails because of its repetitive level design and a control system that’s more irritating than fun.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Players are ultimately better off with "Hunter: The Reckoning" for a similar style of game that at least features multiplayer support, different characters, and experience-based attributes.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Not only is the control awkward and difficult to master, levels are poorly designed and seemingly impossible to complete.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An awkward interface, combined with a limited plot, makes for an unfulfilling rote adventure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    And for a sport that cries out desperately for a highly usable text-based game, that's too bad -- unfortunately this one never really gets a handle on the ball.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dated adventure with sub-standard full-motion video, puzzles that had been used numerous times, trivial item collection and drab conversations with bizarre characters. Potential oozed from the box, but was never achieved.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Missions are over before you can blink, and frankly, they're not much fun.
