    If you get frustrated easily, like when the ink runs out of your pen, then this game's for you. It will only last a few hours and then you can go back outside and continue trying to hit rocks with a stick.

    If this game were available for free in a cereal box I still wouldn't recommend it - but it would make it easier to swallow.

    About the only thing the developers got right are the graphics. Considering how low-res they are, it's not much of an accomplishment.

    Even at the budget price of fifteen bucks, save your money and hunt down an arcade version of either games. At least you'll have a few hours worth of fun instead of an eternity of mediocrity.

    Don't confuse this game with the console games however. Console games good; GBA game bad.

    There's absolutely nothing redeeming about this game except that it's price lower than a real game, so you won't get ripped off as badly if accidentally purchase it.

    Once you get past the graphics you will be confronted with a cold and sterile fighting engine. The game is barren in the area of options, menu and unlockables.

    This game is more of an action adventure without the combat. It's also a little shy on action and adventure.

    Murakumo at first looks like an expensive diamond but after playing it you to will see it’s nothing more then a polished lump of coal.

    Slot car racing is bloody boring enough without have to replicate it in a videogame. What's next? Snail racing?... It stinks.

    The game gets very old, very fast, especially in the four-player mode.

    Although the driving engine isn't bad at all, the automatic targetting system is more than a little chaotic and clunky.

    There's little you can do despite the 34 spells at your disposal. Getting out alive is left to chance and a lot of button mashing.

    Are we going to be forever destined to inferior products based on popular characters wading through a series of hackneyed mini games?

    There's nothing here that would warrant this game being on the Xbox. It doesn't look good, the sounds are average, the tunes are forgettable and the gameplay is unimaginative.

    Nothing is more embarrassing, or fun to watch, than something that someone thinks is cool, which falls flat while they really try to sell it with clueless enthusiasm. Just about every aspect of this game falls flat, from the gameplay to the soundtrack.

    The gang vernacular and the gratuitous use of swearing may make this game appear cool but you may as well listen to an Andrew Dice Clay recording and play with a string-less yo-yo.

    The sad part is that there are just too many problems that were not fixed before the release. The main thing is the controls of the game itself... It's a game with some cool gimmicks that try to hide a poorly made game.

    An uninspired action adventure game that rehashes the same old elements that we've seen throughout the series. There is little combat and what is offered is limited by a few moves and combos which are all practically divulged at the outset.

    Nothing more than a stagnant, relentlessly boring game. You can exploit everything the game has to offer in less than a couple of hours.

    Take away the Robocop license, pop culture sound bytes and you've got a totally generic FPS on your hands that is completely forgettable.

    FlatOut has all the makings of a great budget games, except that it's not great and that it's not budget priced.

    From the graphics to the gameplay this is a game that would be more at home on the PSX than either the Xbox or the PS2. About the only good thing about this game is that it's a budget title. I wouldn't expect any serious gamer to get more than an hour's worth of entertainment from this.

    From the gameplay to the graphics, this game screams budget title. It not only looks generic but it acts generic. The developers really missed the mark with this one.

    While "The Sims" can get deep, The Urbz: Sims in the City is a very light version of the original. This game is designed for girls that haven't yet grown out of the Barbie phase. The Urbz is the shallowest version of The Sims yet.

    187 Ride or Die is bad - but it's not so bad that it's good. There's nothing good about it, period.

    The load times are ridiculous. I have not seen a more frustrating design. It loads when you access a menu. It even loads after you pause it. There is no other reason for this other than sloppy design.

    Even longtime fans of the series are bound to be disappointed with the premise and the gameplay.

    Instead of a game that takes its inspiration from the show that it's based on, it appear to have been more inspired by "GTA" than anything else. And if you can imagine how bad a budget title of "GTA" would be, you can imagine how bad American Chopper is.

    There's no good reason on God's gray earth why anyone would want to play this street racing game when there are so many good ones available.
