    A majority of time is spent going slowly to eliminate the threats before they close in on you. Spread this out over a few hours and your fingers won’t be the only things numb from the experience.

    If it weren't for the sloppy grappling system, Ultimate Muscle could have been a worthy purchase, especially for fans of the quirky animated series. The bold graphics, battery backup, ability to improve special powers, hidden wrestlers, and versus play are definite pluses.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game with potential, but the developers need to change the scope of the worlds as well as offer more varied objectives for it to be grouped in the same litter as "Super Mario Sunshine" or "Jak and Daxter."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Essentially offers little more than a few extra missions that lack the appeal of the original, especially in the area of strategic options.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    By failing to offer players a robust selection of characters and making the action more random chance than skill based, the developers have wasted a great license and opportunity.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While Crazy Taxi is still playable despite the faults, the platform’s limitations diminish the overall fun, making this taxicab racer rather pedestrian.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An average design effort that suffers from rushed production (the "save game" screen is primarily made up of huge blocky text and boxes) and a flawed engine.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The core gameplay is spoiled by a rare complaint for a racing game: it's just too darn fast.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    By building the entire title around only seven mini-games, My Street doesn’t have nearly enough depth to keep players occupied for extended periods of time -- even with online multiplayer support and a great character editor.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If Urban Yeti had twice as many levels and less restricting mini-games, old-school as well as new-school gamers would be all too ready to Yeti.
    • 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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There are several logic flaws that severely diminish the game's storyline.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Since there is almost certainly going to be another release in the series, pass on this and get "EggMania" instead.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The current system is too cumbersome for an action-oriented game, and the inability to save anywhere only makes things even more frustrating.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Has a few brief flashes of fun but no sustained action. Fanatics of the sport may keep it for awhile, but most gamers will recapture the hard disk space as quickly as possible.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Is Futurama fun for fans of 3D platform or shooter games? As Leela once said, "At the risk of sounding negative, no."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There is an expression that beauty is only skin deep, which fits Xtreme Beach Volleyball to a tee. Those who purchase this game will soon discover the beautiful graphics are hiding a shallow, pointless game underneath.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A good idea that fails to survive the transition from concept to actual gameplay.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This once excellent, oddly addicting title that appeared on the Saturn three years ago has become little more than a tedious chore to play.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With over 10,000 objects in the game's universe, there is quite a bit to see and no one's going to tell you how or when to see it in this open-ended space adventure.
    • 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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    All of the problems the off-road games have experienced in the past are as visible in this version as a Hummer with its high beams on.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Most significantly, Ruins of Myth Drannor does not accomplish the depth of story, the detail of character customization, or the engulfing campaign world that made the original Pool of Radiance such a memorable adventure.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The battles, the excitement, and the potential mix of science fiction with history, is all lost in a stilted game environment that was obviously crafted by Crichton's vision of what the game should be vs. the ultimate goal of creating a good game.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    More of the same uninspiring gameplay that makes the license unappealing to game developers. Its failure to adhere to simple precedents or develop surprising action involving interesting characters empties yet another promise of a quality title.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Perhaps Turok would have been more acceptable had it been released a few years ago, but the genre has, interestingly enough, "evolved" to the point where this game looks and plays downright primitive.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As an adventure, CSI should be considered DOA -- its gameplay, clueless.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There is nothing in this game that hasn't been done better in every single way than "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Besides proving it's possible to depict a fast-paced, three-dimensional environment on the GBA, Iridion 3D is yet another reminder of what gamers everywhere already knew: eye candy is no substitute for meaningful gameplay.
