    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a tough nut to crack so only gamers looking for a tough challenge with time to spare need apply.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even though very customizable, Close Combat: Invasion Normandy's gameplay can get very repetitive after repeated play.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With beautiful graphics, plenty of options and an easy-to-master swing meter, the game is both appealing and accessible to the casual fan.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Veteran RTS gamers may be put off by the simplicity, but novice players should be able to jump right into the plastic wars quickly.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Those looking for an old-school arcade-style game with a significant boost in graphics and sounds will be satisfied with Silpheed: The Lost Planet. It doesn't disappoint.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has loads of style, especially in the front end. If you tally up the overall features of the game -- such as the complete design, the front end, the art, graphics, and animation -- instead of just the racing elements themselves, this game comes out way ahead.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The level of detail and control offers many ways to complete a mission and the differences between them are subtle but significant. Unfortunately, this is counterbalanced by the lack of diversity in the missions.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While the game is good overall, the traditional Battleship board game still holds its own as the best.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The potentially rewarding aspects of the game are hampered by an overly rigid structure that works at cross-purposes to its non-linearity.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The tracks have enough secrets to hold your attention for a while and the arenas, while too big for their own good, are still a blast, especially with friends.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rarely rises above the level of a typical side-scrolling combat title.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Could be a solid RTS if not for the lack of story and the cluttered and variant interface.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's not quite as special as the title suggests, but it has its moments.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If they continue to slap a year on the packaging along with a few half-hearted features, as they did with this title, their audience is going to ignore them.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Won't win any awards for originality, but as a movie adaptation it does a good job at translating the content of the film into a workable game without any major defects.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A big disappointment, primarily because the graphics are the best yet seen in the genre...Along the way both the gameplay and options suffered, making WWF Raw one of the more appropriately titled games available on the Xbox.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The novelty of the idea soon gives way to awkward controlling and discombobulating camera angles, resulting in an experience sometimes more frustrating than fun.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    With no challenge, fishing becomes boring and repetitive -- might as well go down to the corner store and pick up some wrapped bass for dinner.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Taken as pure fighting game, it could use some power-ups, more fixed arenas, more characters, and distinct moves.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are flashes of progress to be found in this title, and if 3DO continues to build upon Portal Runner's shortcomings, there is a possibility for a truly decent Army Men game in the future.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The biggest problem with the game is its repetitiveness. Subsequent chapters revisit areas you’ve already been through, and there’s zero interactivity within the locales.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's certainly much better than the awful Nintendo 64 Superman game, and it looks and feels like an interactive episode of the cartoon series. However, its gameplay is less than super.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fans of "The Matrix: Reloaded" will want to jack in for the stylish focus moves and original movie footage that fleshes out the events depicted in the film. Everyone else, however, will want to pull the plug and run to the nearest exit.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Offers nothing to improve upon past greats in the genre.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're into speed and tight combat control rather than detailed customization, GunGriffon Blaze is the game for you.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An all-around disappointment for anyone expecting substantial improvements to the core engine.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This game is worryingly addictive; it's not just a business simulation, nor just a power game, but an educational competition where only the forward thinker survives and thrives.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The graphics are clean, the action is fast and furious, and the gameplay is simple. Those expecting a brand new style of Blitz will be thoroughly disappointed.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Yet the action isn’t complex, and most enemies can be defeated within your first attempt by simply relying on rapid button tapping.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A solid but bland first-person shooter with no in-depth story or sense of fun to elevate it above any other GBA game in the genre.
