    Unless the girls that receive Barbie Groovy Games as a gift are too stupid to notice, Barbie makes only a few brief appearances in the game.

    There's no personality or story development here - all resemblance to any fictional character is virtually coincidental.

    The presentation is hideous. This is so bare bones I'm sure even a Russian would feel a little embarrassed about the lack of options, detail, story and gameplay. The music is terrible.

    You can throw in all the famous characters you want but if the gameplay isn't there you don't have a game worth playing.

    In my opinion it's just a little too little, too late.

    Punch, punch, punch, jump - and throw something. That seems to be the extent of the gameplay.

    So much of this game is derived from Pokemon that it's shameless.

    Multi scrolling levels give the game a 3D appearance which will fool some gamers for a while but it's hard not to get bored playing on the same plane.

    The game looks good, sounds good, has a great collision detection system, no drop in the framerate or any other noticeable technical flaws. But like so many sequels, it's just void of a soul.

    It features lots of characters from the series, perhaps all of your favorites, but if these fighters were real they'd be on the phone with their agents trying to stop this game from getting released.

    Where Flight of the Falcon goes wrong is in trying to make the GBA display 3D environments for an entire game.

    One of the worst party games ever invented.

    It's obvious that some care and talent went into the making of this game. Unfortunately it just didn't dribble down to the most important part - the gameplay.

    Only the most feeble of gamers or the very young will get any challenge out of this game. It should have been a mini game.

    Unfortunately it sounds like a wristwatch alarm. After an hour or so of playing Xevious, staring at your watch will seem like a refreshing change of pace.

    Virtually every motocross game released for the GBA in the last three years is better than this one.

    Releasing an older, inferior version of Bomberman on the GBA when there are already plenty of great, newer version available surely must be an indication of madness.

    The gameplay mechanics mutiny against what might have been an enjoyable, mindless, first-person shooter.

    From the gameplay to the graphics, Van Helsing is one poorly developed game. I don't even care what the excuses are, this game should not have been released in the state that it's in.

    Aside from those tree huggers that cling to "classics," the average gamer of today would have little use for such long, drawn out RPGs that just simply can't compete with today's RPGs. There's a reason the RPGs are really popular now and that's because they've evolved from what they were.

    In Dr. Mario, its all too obvious that Mario is practicing in Tetris territory without a license.

    Like the kart racers of fighters. It's a generic 2D fighter that has limited control and very little depth. Not recommended for hardcores.

    Bean there - done that - won't do it again.

    The entire presentation is flat and uninspired. With the exception of color, this game looks like it was destined for a watch.

    A collecting RPG in the tradition of Pokemon - shamefully so. But instead of expanding on this style of gameplay that's already been done to death, The Shaman King sees fit to simplify it so that it offers a challenge akin to turning a water faucet on and off.

    It may have a sophisticated graphics engine and a good assortment of aircraft but for a game that should be presented in 3D, it falls flat.

    I don't care how good the gameplay is - it's been done to death. It's like releasing the game of checkers over and over with different colored game pieces.

    Unfortunately the accuracy of the weapons is low. The controls are loose and sometime they don't even register a command. Very sloppy.

    Blades of Thunder reduces the thrills of chopper combat to that of delivering crates of Kentucky Fried Chicken to remote Indian reserves in the Canadian wilderness.
