    The concept is well and good, and works well – except for the fact that you still must slow down to use Knuckles and Tails (or the equivalent member in one of the three other teams in the game). These are the moments that the game truly lags, and once again the shoddy camera has come back to once again make the game a pain.

    The graphics and sound are largely pulled from the Game Boy Advance game. So we're running some graphics far below the GameCube's level.

    The coolest new addition to GameDay is the voice-recognition features. Those of you who bought SOCOM: US Navy Seals, and have the VR headset will be able to call your plays, send men in motion, and even hike the ball.

    The biggest problem I found was control. Nag all you want about the AI, its not that big a deal. But I hardly ever felt like I was in true control of the car that I was driving.

    The game does suffer from a bit of a slowdown when there are numerous zombies on-screen.

    Maybe wrestling and rap will suit you more than me, or maybe it won’t.

    Some steps in the right direction have been made, and with a little refining, the 2005 version should be competitive. Still, you probably will prefer "NCAA Football" over this.

    The lack of gameplay ingenuity, long load times and crappy graphics will turn most off. But Simpsons fans will love the game anyway.

    Quite simply, the game offers nothing that you can’t get in the other games, and can’t have a better time getting in the other games.

    The one point of Magna Cum Laude that stands out is the fairly hysterical humor of the game. Borrowing pages from movies such as "Animal House," Magna Cum Laude has some of the funniest lines ever uttered in a video game. The characters and the dialog bring unprecedented humor to the consoles.

    This is a great looking racing game that really pushes these early capabilities of the DS and does it while running at 60 frames per second. The problem is that the gameplay is just uninspired.

    The graphic engine doesn't seem to have been touched, nor does the gameplay engine.

    Changing the gameplay system is a step in the wrong direction though, and really takes away from what could have been the best wrestling game yet.

    I can't say the controls are all that precise. While the controls are designed for anyone to pick them up and play (unlike some flight sims where you need to look at a manual before you turn your plane to starboard), they just don't have a good feel to them.

    This is about the hardest game I've ever played. Rarely do I get frustrated at a game, but I found myself constantly pausing this game and walking away to blow off steam.

    While there isn’t much there, it’s fun to play while it lasts.

    A big problem I’ve had with the game is load times. You can walk across large plots of land with no slowdown whatsoever. But enter a house, and be prepared to sit for a while waiting for the game to load.

    While Kung Fu Chaos is marketed as a party game intended for four players, I keep finding the single-player mode more riveting and fun.

    The cool thing about the online mode is that you can join games already in progress.

    There are a couple of very ingenious puzzles, but these are few and far between. Often you find yourself wishing you had to do something more interesting, as the game gets repetitive.

    A rental at best. It's too short, and too repetitive to be a purchase.

    Even the fans of the show may want to "try-before-you-buy" because there really isn’t much to do after beating the game once.

    The moves and modifers require a lot more memorization and button tapping. It's frustrating and there is quite the learning curve on the controls, so you can't just jump in.

    One of the more graphically impressive GBA launch titles. From the 3D menus to the in-game 3D environments, Iridion does drop jaws with its impressive graphics. Unfortunately, the rest of the game takes away from this sense of euphoria.

    May be one of the easiest golf games I've ever played.
