    This game is neither as creepy as Blair Witch Volume 1 nor as adrenaline-pumping as the other "action" games on the market, and in the end is something of a disappointment.

    More gory than spooky, and even that is pulled off with minimal skill. But there's still some fun to be had, at least until the next survival horror game comes out. Oh wait, there's one now....

    The problems with the framerate and inability to save my game made me want to break the CD into tiny pieces.

    Unfortunately, while the story is well-told and intriguing, the gameplay is unwieldy and frustrating -- and after all, we aren't watching a movie, we're playing a game.

    The whole multiplayer aspect was wasted, essentially a glorified deathmatch where players can either be bugs or humans, but once again there's just not a hell of a lot to do and the whole things feels tacked on just so they could slap "multiplayer" on the side of the box.

    Frantically pounding buttons just to win a grapple is not my idea of fun.

    One of the most novel gaming premises to come along in quite some time, (but) its poor gameplay mechanics and woeful graphics ultimately relegate it to that ignominious coulda-been, shoulda-been pile of underachieving PlayStation action titles.

    "PGA European Tour" exemplifies boredom.

    Every gamer who doesn't play D2 because he read this review means that at least the two days of life I lost playing it weren't totally wasted.

    Unfortunately, actually playing "Strider 2" also drove me to tears, but not the joyous tears of teenage nostalgia, oh no: the bitter tears of disappointment. And boredom.

    It's one of the most disappointing titles I've seen in a long time.
