    Poor production values and a woefully dated game engine make us pine for what could have been, and we are left with this modern relic.

    It goes where no Trek game has gone before -- and it should stay there!
    • 72 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An incredibly monotonous, extremely boring family game devoid of fun.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite its humongous selection of teams and clean-looking graphics, this version of Sony's college-hoops franchise is just as horrible as last year's "NCAA Final Four" on the PSX, thanks to lackluster, unbalanced gameplay and an incomplete control scheme.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A surfing game that even the biggest poseur would classify as fairly bogus.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A below-average game with little in the way of compelling gameplay.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Will likely prove more frustrating than fun for those who strap themselves into the cockpit.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fails to deliver a compelling gaming experience for so many reasons that it should've stayed in paperback form.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If you could save the game anywhere you wanted during the RTS and RPG modes, it'd be easy to put aside its lack of originality and recommend it as a reasonably entertaining game, something to tide gamers over while they wait for the next really big RTS or RPG.

    On paper, the idea sounds great (and the game has been a huge hit in Europe), but the final product flat out stinks.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even though the multiplayer games offer a bit of fun for a few hours (blowing your friends up is always entertaining), WDL falls short of our expectations by failing to deliver the kind of unadulterated explosive combat we had hoped for.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This "Resident Evil" wanna-be falls flat on its undead face.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With subpar efforts such as this, it's painfully clear the series needs either to end or evolve.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fails in so many areas that the entire experience ends up being one long exercise in frustration.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A significantly underwhelming racing title that is outpaced by EA's superior NASCAR 2001 in almost every respect.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It'd take a miracle to thaw this one out.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lame graphics, poor audio, and a definite lack of features once again reduce the beleaguered franchise to NIT status.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even though Freestyle Motorcross's outlandish trick selection and arcade-style flair make it somewhat entertaining, the simplistic gameplay, poor graphics, and limited selection of riders simply don't make it compelling enough to belong in your library.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With sloppy controls, an uncomfortable camera, poor voices, and awful music, BLSC has little to get excited about, even if you're a hard-core "Toy Story" fan.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If you feel the itch for some wacky, freewheelin' racing action, you'd be better off getting out a copy of your favorite kart racing title and saving yourself the pain, the money, and the aggravation of getting that maddening laugh stuck in your head.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This lame first-person shooter with no visual or visceral delights is an insult to the brand name that is Resident Evil.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's pretty damn cruddy.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    "Fighter Destiny 2" is not a total crime against humanity, but it's pretty close, and given the fact that it plays almost exactly the same as the dusty original, there can be no doubt that the fighting throne certainly doesn't go to this pretender.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Although the actual car models are quite nice, the N64's infamous fog--which makes for about 10 feet of visibility, even in sunny conditions--and the blurry, washed-out textures undermine the game's few good points.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game that blends all the fun of a long tedious board game with the excitement of staring at a loading screen!
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While there are a few interesting spots and plot points, Evil Dead the game has managed to turn one of the most original and entertaining of all B-horror-film franchises into nothing more than a boring, uninspired, and pedestrian attempt to cash in on a license.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While Chicken Run isn't an exceptionally awful game, it reeks of unfulfilled potential, most notably in the gameplay, which is highly monotonous and downright frustrating.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Although the sheer volume of wrestling personalities and gameplay options prevent it from being a complete write-off, it still ranks somewhere between late-night infomercials and the Jerry Springer Show for outright entertainment value.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An Olympics-licensed title that could have been great is marred by a shoddy control setup and lack of production.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    If you consider yourself even a casual gamer, don't be enticed by the pretty box: tap the buttons in your mind and run far, far away.
