    One of the PS2’s better looking debacles. On a sheer destructive scale it’s a beauty.

    It offers no challenge for the solo player and is unplayable online, even after the hefty patch. If it wasn’t already hard enough for KoF to compete with Street Fighter, this release has made it even more difficult for it to do so in the future.

    Tony Hawk RIDE is rubbish.

    A deeply flawed game. From the terrible image tearing to the offensive voice-overs, it’s as big a failure as I’ve seen from a major Publisher for some time.

    Oh God, where to begin…? The utterly, mind-bogglingly dreadful character design and animation? The hugely irritating Californian-princess voice over? No, No! Even better, how about the generally sub-PS2 environments and enemies? How about the fact that the near-silent, samey, uninspiring bad guys keep floating up into the air when standing too close to the scenery? Or the sucky frame rate?

    Plagued by poor and outdated graphics, horrid voice acting and some of the dumbest AI of the year, the potential hit quickly turned into another bitter miss. Too bad.

    The lack of any challenge and enjoyment in single player, gameplay dull enough to send you into a coma, and complete lack of what games should be about, fun, means that ATV Quad Frenzy is about as appealing as a punch in the face. Utter rubbish.

    A real mess.

    Shellshock 2 is truly a bad game. It's short, it's ugly and it's uninspiring. Just what Rebellion were thinking before releasing this travesty is beyond me, because it doesn't have a leg to stand on in comparison to most PS2 FPSs, let alone anything the current-gen consoles have to offer. Leave this one alone.

    With the lack of challenge, the absence of fun and no attempt at providing an experience for it’s target audience, EA has managed to produce one of the worst ‘games’ (if it can even be called that) that I have ever had the misfortune to play.

    No one is going to cough up cash for two games that, to be honest, can be played with bits of paper if you have the time and inclination to make them.

    Not only a contender for the worst game of the year, but also the worst game of all time.

    Given the new found popularity Limbo of the Lost has gained over recent weeks this may go down as a cult classic. However that’s not to say that the game is so bad it's good, the game is so bad it's an insult.
