    A slow, lifeless racer that’s never any fun.
    • 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.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    One of the most irritating aspects, other than the stiff animation, boring levels, and ridiculous system for buying moves, is the sound during the action sequences.
    • 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.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The majority of games are an unplayable mess.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    New Legends is so beaten by "Dynasty Warriors 3" on the less powerful PS2 in visuals, control, theme, and playability that you have to pause and scratch your head to figure out how the Xbox is being taken advantage of.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    If players can overcome the gloomy graphics, irritating camera, and puzzling gadgets, they can look forward to swinging from rooftop to rooftop, punching dozens of enemies using two moves over and over again, ducking behind walls like "Metal Gear Solid," and even taking to the skies in an awkward controlling Batglider.

    It's the fighting that lacks the real charisma of yesterday, or today for that matter.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Yet the biggest complaint is the sheer boredom one has from doing the same thing over and over again throughout 29 levels; the distances between pickup and drop-off points are so long you begin to count pixels or how many times objects "pop" into view.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Imagine a slow, confusing version of "Grand Theft Auto" minus the crime and the fun.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The underlying problem is that despite being the originator of the first-person shooter, Wolfenstein 3D just doesn't hold up nearly ten years after its original release as PC shareware.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Superman’s problems, however, lie in the game’s control and play mechanics. The action is tedious, the moves are sluggish, and the enemies are annoying.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Players remotely interested in the genre should boo these Kabuki Warriors off the stage and wait for a more promising title to appear.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Where "Tony Hawk 3" is fast, flowing, and intuitive, Shaun Palmer is slow, disjointed and difficult to get into.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    An atrocious two-on-two basketball game that's completely devoid of the excitement and energy of its namesake.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The computer AI is cheap one moment and then brain-dead the next, but the most irritating aspect by far is the overall sluggishness of the action inside the ring.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Shoddily produced in almost every possible way, Sports Illustrated for Kids Baseball is an inert rendition of the sport that ranks among the worst games based on the national pastime.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Sneakers has a stench not even a pair of Odor Eaters can mask. It is hard to believe this was the title Microsoft touted for its Japanese console launch, and after playing you'll understand why the system failed to entice the buying public.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A pile of Dooku... In total, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Mace Windu will slog through eight tedious lightsaber fights and three horribly pixilated driving sequences while trying to save the galaxy from a sinister alliance.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Even the game's trick system is automatic; there's literally nothing that takes any skill for you to do.
