    A monumental letdown, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

    I did like playing the game for the extra modes outside of the normal story mode, since they actually offered up some killer objectives and nice gameplay.

    A just-above-average portable action-platformer that, while enjoyable throughout in most instances, is marred by repetitive gameplay, a short campaign with no replayability and an archaic password save system, which is my biggest pet peeve with GBA games and one flaw I'll never be able to forgive in this day and age.

    The game is way too simplistic for sophisticated gamers and becomes too much of a challenge for the kiddies.

    Beatmania had the makings for a solid rhythm game with its sweet turntable peripheral, accessible-yet-challenging gameplay and plethora of game modes and options, however when the most important element to this type of game -- the music -- is so forgettable the entire gameplay experience is essentially ruined.

    It follows the beloved storyline with a wonderful cinematic flair, top-notch audio design, colorful yet simple graphics and a basic set of gameplay mechanics. However, a lacking of innovation and overall gameplay and graphical polish stunt the game's full potential and leave it as a just-above-average title only fans of the material and/or genre will find any value in.

    It’s obvious that much of the graphics and simplified content were held over from previous experiences programming for GBA titles, however the 3D battles and some of the mini-games show that the team behind the Harry Potter line is starting down the right path.

    While the city is large in itself and fun to explore and the cinematic cutscenes are semi-inspiring, DRIV3R is a continuously frustrating and boring affair.

    The only reason to play Larry is because of the Quarters minigame and the humor. The comedy is absolutely side-splitting in most of the game, bringing back memories of "Road Trip" or "Old School."

    It is definitely the best Crash-starring game to come along in a long, long while, but in comparison to today’s top platformers Crash Twinsanity can’t compete in any way, shape, or form.

    Lacks everything which makes the genre fun and engrossing.

    So many corners were cut and details rushed that whatever good content is there is overshadowed by the mistakes.

    Unless you are a true comic fan and know nothing about games, avoid this title like avoiding the Scarecrow's neurotoxin. Instead, save your money from the rental and see the movie, which far exceeds what this game presents.

    This shoulda been fine-tuned more before being shipped, and that’s the bottom line.

    Most of Battle Nexus is the same thing as the last game, except this time, it’s been beaten, bruised, and bludgeoned with a rabid sturgeon repeatedly, then given a thorough colonoscopy with said sturgeon.
