    In the end, I just couldn't get into Jedi Knight. Maybe it was because I'm not a big Star Wars fanatic that I found it quite boring and uninspired, but there was nothing here that grasped my interest.

    It's the type of game you can essentially play with your eyes closed if you push the buttons fast enough, and most players will breeze through it in an hour or two with little resistance.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's a shame more levels weren't built around these activities or the mazes, since the platform action gets tedious.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A solid attempt at watercraft racing that will satisfy less demanding players, but it's a hard game to recommend when earlier games in the genre have done just about everything better.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Offers an overabundance of boring mini-games that emphasize dumb luck over skill, and since this title is little more than a collection of mini-games, it suffers because of it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It’s too simplistic and oftentimes annoying due to a hyperactive camera.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    For all its features, it turns out be nothing more than a standard, free-for all slugfest.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, other than the graphics in the user's manual, BAM! Entertainment's title holds little fire, with frustrating game graphics and difficult gameplay.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The game feels as if it's a throwback to shooters made prior to games like Unreal, and while reliving a few scenes from the movie is enjoyable, it's just not enough.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There is enough here to use as a jumping point for a potentially exciting new series.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Despite a new locale and seven characters, this Diablo clone does little to rise above its progenitor.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It’s hard not to be disappointed by the resolution and graphics, which is more a fault of the screen rather than the game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The title offers wonderful graphics and some fun levels, the majority of which involve the title character, but the disjointed story line, uneven action, and problematic camera take away from the enjoyment most will have while playing.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Decent graphics and sound, and a full complement of NASCAR drivers and cars, gives the game initial appeal, but questionable gameplay ensures limited long-term usage.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A by-the-numbers port of the PS2 game, which was in itself an extremely questionable upgrade over previous titles in the series.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Starts out promising and gradually becomes more tedious the further you delve into it. It’s repetitive, and it’s repetitive not because of the sheer number of enemies thrown at you or the simplistic nature of objectives, but because of the paltry set of moves you can initiate with the main character.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Driving Emotion Type-S is to racing what fingernails are to a chalkboard.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Much like Myst, the puzzles in Riven usually offer no explanations or any hints as to why you need to do them and what it will do. Most of them are extremely vague and illogical which leads to a very frustrating experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A by-the-numbers side-scrolling action game with linear levels, repetitive enemies, and boring combat.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    What begins as an interesting premise quickly deteriorates into a largely annoying trip due to restrictions placed on a player's freedom and the developers artificially ramping up the difficulty by refusing to let players know what they are supposed to be doing before the film starts rolling.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Chief among the problems is a camera that doesn’t react well to the sudden changes associated with jumping, with imprecise controls being a close second. The end-result is a series of ridiculously difficult stages simply because you don’t have the tools to respond to the tasks at hand.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's unfortunate so much effort clearly went into the game with the result being a lackluster presentation that is not enough to truly showcase its good qualities.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're buying this game expecting something as refined and polished as one of Capcom's fighting games, you're going to be disappointed. Others looking for something new will be disappointed as well.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The lack of two-player support, varied objectives, and its relatively short length keep it from being a must-have title, but the combat is fun and the environments are different enough to keep you interested until the final scene.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Simple graphics, awkward camera angles, dumb enemies, limited animation, and some questionable control decisions undermine an interesting fighting system peppered with some role-playing aspects and flashes of Matrix-style action.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If the gameplay were up to par with the graphics, this would be an amazing simulation. It's a good first step, and if improvements are made in respect to physics and general playability, Ford Racing will become a must have.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Like any good fighting game, two players can enter the ring to seek their destinies in head-to-head battles.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Deserves two ratings: one for players who are plane-enthusiasts and one for the casual gamer. The first rating is high due to the incredible level of accuracy and detail; the claim on the box of being the most realistic commercially available flight simulator would be difficult to argue. Conversely, the second rating would be low since the appeal for gamers who crave a bit of action or a solid story line is so small.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Collision detection is questionable at best. It’s often tough to tell whether it takes two hits to down certain enemies, or if the first hit simply didn’t connect.
    • 65 Metascore

    You may find that Yoshi's Story can be a wonderfully irresistible experience. It's like Super Mario Bros. 2 in that it's quite a bit different from the usual Mario fare. Many people loved Super Mario Bros. 2, whereas some didn't. That will be the case here as well.
