    The problem is that its main competition, EA Sports' Madden series, has most of the same features, plays a much better game of football and looks a lot better doing it.

    Controlling everything with the DC controller, especially over the often lengthy missions, will lead to cramped, achy hands, and the necessity for quick command issuing just doesn't fit well onto a gamepad.

    It's not a horrible game, but the one other pool game available at launch, "Q-Ball: Billiards Master," is just a tad bit better.

    It's fine for players looking for basic off-road action, but those looking for hardcore realism or arcade action should look elsewhere.

    With medical miracles and the highest average lifespan known in our short existence on this planet, we have to think that we've evolved beyond hitting each other over the head with frying pans and retractable boxing gloves.

    Everything that's done right here is on a prom date with wrong, and the wrongs manage to dance all over the rights' feet a little too often.

    Those who enjoy lackluster game values, cliched dialog and a motley collection of sophomoric characters will find this a competently produced title that won't be hard to get through.

    A decent game that could have been great if it had been released three years ago.

    The sort of videogame that needs to have the epilepsy warning printed in 72-point Helvetica bold. This game is so colorful, fast and disorienting that we came close to passing out a couple of times and poking ourselves on the "Seaman" microphone.

    The golf ball "rolls" like a ping-pong ball on an air-hockey table...TW2001 slices into the rough when it comes to actually playing the game, and that's a shame, as nearly everything else is top-notch.

    Though occasionally enjoyable, endless game crashing bugs, bouts of tedium and a few badly designed elements make it a miss.

    A pretty weak entry from Ripcord, Spec Ops II won't overly offend or overly excite anyone.

    Unfortunately, it also has crippling flaws that suck fun out of gameplay like a starving Nosferatu gnawing on a rat.

    As it comes out of the box, the awkward controls, ordinary story and mediocre multiplayer prevent us from recommending this marginally fun game.

    It is an utterly routine shooter with a handful of different ships to fly, awkward controls, and robotic enemies that on their worst day aren't so much dangerous as they are sort of "pesky."

    It's such a banal misuse of a popular franchise that its mediocrity really shines through.

    It's a gun game without a gun, and there's really no way to get past that one glaring omission.

    Unfortunately the grappling in the PSOne version of UFC is quite a bit less complex than the Dreamcast version's, with only one button combination used for most throws and one for counters. This makes successfully grappling an opponent much harder.

    Crave's "Sno Cross" is a far better game and is five bucks cheaper at $9.99.

    What was cute and fun, if a little simplistic, on the PlayStation is unimpressive and difficult on Dreamcast.

    A passable shooter that will please Nintendo-owning fans of the genre, but it won't win any awards for originality, ingenuity or design.

    Though "PGA" plays the simulation angle well, the easy putting, occasional quirks in control and lackluster graphics that actually affect the gameplay adversely all leave this title mired in mediocrity.

    It certainly does not have the basketball depth of "NBA Live 2001," and we'd only recommend it to die-hard college hoops fans who simply have to play as a Division I team.

    It contains an interesting and cleverly told story and takes great pains to build an atmosphere, then smashes the whole house of cards to the ground, violently, with a cheap cop-out ending.

    In short, this interactive bit of testosterone-laden tomfoolery is just like the movie.

    With bland graphics, poor gameplay balancing and -- worst of all -- terrible controls, so much of the game is so much of a drag that it falls short of the anemically rising levels that set the 3D action/adventure standard.

    The graphics are fine, the options plentiful and the details lovingly polished, but the core gameplay -- the part where you're in a car racing against other cars -- doesn't do much to advance the genre at all.
