    While the core of the game is pretty bland, the trick system is excellent.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While the game is pretty fun, it isn't much to look at.

    Gets old fast. The multiplayer gameplay grows stale and can be boring, and the one-player game only takes so long to master, or become bored with. A golf fan might eat it up, but your typical gamer will probably put it down after a few days of extended play.

    A treat for fans of the original, but it won’t blow you away in any particular aspect.
    • 71 Metascore

    It begins to get old quick.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    An improvement in just about every way.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While Contra: Shattered Soldier is a short game, fans of the original will eat it up. It’s also a game for anyone looking for a challenge.

    Rez
    The music falls into the techno category, but it’s very bland until you start destroying enemies.

    The biggest and most important adjustment to the game is on the home run hitting. They are much fewer than in last year’s version and that is a huge plus.

    • 75 Critic Score
    Sure, it could have been a bit better, but if you're looking for a fun action game that doesn't require a ton of thought, you'll have a good time with this.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Isn’t a great game, but it’s a lot of fun. Look at it as the popcorn movie of the game world, it’s really pretty, but only skin (or polygon?) deep.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game is enjoyable to play through, even if the action can be competitive and the game isn’t as polished as it could’ve been.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game works in its purpose of being a great kid’s game based on a strong license. It’s basic, it’s not too hard, but it is all done very well and it’s not a bad game in the slightest.

    It doesn’t excel, but it’s the best portable football game you’ll find on the market, even with its only average graphics and sound, and generations old gameplay.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It’s one of the hardest 2D platformers this side of "Viewtiful Joe" and while the game seems slightly short, it takes quite a while to play through it successfully.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A no-brainer for anyone that enjoys RPGS.
    • 81 Metascore

    The graphics are one of the best parts about the game. The backgrounds are absolutely gorgeous, and the animations have all been re-worked.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This is a straight up card playing/building game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While it’s fairly typical at first, when you realize that you have to drop bombs at ground targets, the gameplay picks up quickly. While there is no true ending to the game, Xevious is a ton of fun and if you’re looking for a GBA shooter.

    One thing that Mace Griffin has going for it is its graphics. The real-time lighting on weapons and animations are just awesome.

    Why is this version so much different than the Playstation 2 one? I understand there were different developers, but the games are so much different and the Playstation 2 version is so much better.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    But the problem with the game is just that the story doesn't really do much to excite, in fact, it can be kind of dull.
    • 66 Metascore

    While a pretty easy game even with shocks and grim reaper, is a pretty fun ride.

    The space missions are an absolute blast, and it seems like the tank missions just screw us out of more flight in the name of diversity.

    Still the same girl you dated in high school, just with a new wardrobe and some nice jewelry. She’s still fun to hang out with, but nowhere you haven’t been already.

    While marred by a few technical problems, you won’t find a much better game that captures the spirit of a television show (and at a price point that most can’t beat).
