    I've played better games on the PSX, in terms of appearance, gameplay, sound, graphics and re-playability.

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

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

    If real Fords performed the way they do in Ford Racing 3 we'd all be driving Toyotas.

    Imagine an aging Max Payne with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis, failing eyesight and prone to fits of epilepsy. That's what you can expect when you play as Jack Slate in Dead to Rights: Reckoning...This game gets no points for trying. Dead to Rights: Reckoning, in no uncertain terms, sucks.

    It's not the most challenging of games but there are some side-scrolling moments that liven up the pace.

    The end result is a game that features the 3Ds - less depth, less detail and less difficulty.

    I hereby decree Dredd vs. Death to be an inferior product. My ruling is that the game should be executed.

    There's some fun to be had in the Time Trial mode, but only because you don't have to struggle with the inadequacy of the rest of the game. Online play may eventually offer some fun as well, but right now it doesn't seem to work.

    What you're really fighting in this game is the rules - and boredom. It's boredom that drives me to consume fried delectables, and I can tell you I must have gained eight pounds playing Empire of Magic.

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

    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.

    Lego is trying to change its image with the futuristic racing game, Drome Racers. It's like Barney doing a porn movie - but much less interesting.

    This new difficulty didn't make the game any better, it just made it more difficult. It's like having to make friends with an asinine neighbor just because you feel obligated to be nice.

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

    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's doubtful you'll find six other online players but you can set a trap and invite six of your friends to play via LAN. It will be the last you ever see of them. Make sure you take their keys.

    There is no doubt that it gets challenging near the end but you should be able to breeze through most of the levels in a day.

    There is something about this game that just feels completely outdated. This is extremely disappointing for a PS2 game, and I think perhaps it was simply rushed.

    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.

    The concept is gimmicky and the gameplay mechanics don't do anything to deliver a satisfying experience.

    The game just feels sloppy and unfinished. It controls poorly, looks bad, and completely misses the point of the Resident Evil franchise. Honestly, I wouldn't even recommend this game to Resident Evil fans. If you want a better co-op zombie shooter, you should probably just go back to Left 4 Dead.

    How difficult it is to get your ass to a real bowling alley and play a damn game? C'mon man, this is ridiculous. Next thing you know some developer is going to come out with a videogame of a videogame.

    A dated game that is today belittled by the very games that it helped inspire. I can't believe that this game hasn't been tweaked. It's nearly identical, warts and all to the DC port.

    Apocalyptica may not accurately portray the end of the world but it does nothing to preserve the future of gaming as we know it. Let us hope this is not a sign.

    Just about everything about this game is below par. The script is lame and does little to highlight the characters' personalities or the almost adult-oriented context of the comic book theme.

    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.

    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.

    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.
