    The current system is too cumbersome for an action-oriented game, and the inability to save anywhere only makes things even more frustrating.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The few bright spots are that combos are easy to perform and each character does indeed have a distinctive fighting style. Yet these are quickly dimmed by players whipping through the Story mode within eight minutes using a single button (Y) for nearly all of the characters.

    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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lacking just about everything that makes their top-shelf titles great, namely the depth of modes and the attempt at re-creating the nuances of the sport, Triple Play 2002 is an action-heavy game that needs a complete overhaul in player models, fielding, pitching, and options.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The biggest issues players will likely have are the annoying time-based objectives, sloppy control in pedaling from one spot to the next, and confusing environments desperately needing some sort of onscreen map or compass.

    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.
    • 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."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A big disappointment. While there is potential here for a great game, it lacks the depth, production values, and fun associated with a quality Star Wars title.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Yet another disappointing entry in Titus Interactive’s pitiable portfolio. Part man, part machine, all flop.
    • 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.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An unwieldy pitching system and terrible fielding result in a twin killing for those expecting to connect with a fast-paced baseball game.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mildly entertaining, though often frustrating.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    What should be an adrenaline-filled journey through busy city streets ends up being a dull ride, which is hard to believe given the exciting premise.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The simple, straightforward nature of gameplay is over far too quickly and the appealing aspect of smashing into buildings and cars is largely neglected.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Even if you're into surfing, you won't find this title entertaining, and it will probably just serve to make you even angrier. Avoid this game like you would low tide.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Where "Tony Hawk 3" is fast, flowing, and intuitive, Shaun Palmer is slow, disjointed and difficult to get into.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Tries to tie together "The X-Files" with something along the lines of "Red Dawn" but ends up being yet another boring 3D beat-'em-up that offers nothing new to the genre and everything wrong with it.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While it's entirely possible that a game based on designing and managing an office could be entertaining, Big Biz Tycoon's bare-bones attempt is disappointing even by the low standards of value-priced tycoon games.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's the fighting that lacks the real charisma of yesterday, or today for that matter.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    One of the worst games in Konami’s storied history, Frogger: The Great Quest doesn’t live up its title, its heritage, or its company...A froggin’ waste of time.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The title is barely playable in its current form, as each new game reveals a new bug or glitch in the rules, gameplay, or presentation.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    With poor graphics, controls and various plot holes, this is a horrible experience even for the most diehard Mortal Kombat fan.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Ostensibly a fast-paced, “adrenaline-style” rendition of football, the Game Boy Advance version of Blitz is a slow, bare-bones pigskin game that bears little resemblance to its souped-up arcade inspiration.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A slow, lifeless racer that’s never any fun.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Discordant level design, irritating controls, sub-par graphics and sound, and a general lack of the proper Ripping Friends spirit are the game's most notable features.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The shallow gameplay elicits more yucks than nyuks and the lack of anything new will have players quickly saying "Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye" to The Three Stooges' chances of earning a spot in their library.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The biggest issue players will likely have is fighting off sheer boredom instead of a pack of orcs, trolls, or scorpions.
