    Pressing alternating buttons as quickly as possible is only challenging (and fun) for so long, but with the exception of a few events, that's all this game is.

    Marred by technical difficulties, ultimately simplistic design and a painfully complex interface, RPG Maker is less a dream come true than a nightmare that never seems to end.

    With so many interesting alternatives to real life available on so many systems, why stick with one of our most repetitious and grueling sports?

    From the moment this underwhelming title stumbles into action, gamers will be hard-pressed not to notice its painful mediocrity --CB2001 makes the annual SCEA father-son hackeysack tournament look like a paragon of x-tremity.

    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.

    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.

    Well, it sucks. There's really no getting around it. It has great ideas and some innovative design, but a horrible grappling engine and the worst collision detection ever seen in a wrestling title overshadow all of the good.

    Longtime fans of Lara's exploits will find more of the same ride, but we can't recommend paying the full admission price.

    It's not a terrible game, and if someone were trapped on a long flight with nothing but this game and a PSOne, they could do a lot worse.

    Featuring partially-fully-destructible environments, a nifty corral of over-the-top tanks and attitude to spare, Thunder Tanks shoots for the moon, but ultimately lacks the firepower to entice gamers into coming along for the ride.

    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.

    Ugly visuals and a much uglier framerate fail to bolster a lackluster stunt system that's neither visceral nor deep.

    Melodramatic dialogues precede and follow each fight, and they're handled with the same mildly illiterate aplomb as most anime translations -- meaning that they're longwinded, heavyhanded and occasionally unintelligible to all but the most diehard of fans, which is just how we like 'em.

    Erratic control and graphical limitations on top of too many niggling requirements make this game experience less than enjoyable.

    Problematic gameplay and terrible control mar an essentially goofy and slightly fun offering.

    Now imagine the whole game, from start to finish, lasting about 15 minutes -- even with limited continues. Oh dear.

    Twitchy controls, dull track layouts and boring gameplay guarantee this title a place right at the back of the starting grid.

    Failing to pull through with what could have been a very interesting premise, however, EA has given us the keys to Bond's wheels but included with them jagged visuals, uninteresting level designs and some of the least polish we've seen in a while, making this game something of a clunker.

    As infuriating as getting rapped on the skull rapidly and repeatedly, but otherwise just normal.

    Dino Crisis 2 serves up two playable heroes in the form of military agents Regina and Dylan and, unfortunately, they're both rather stock and devoid of personality.

    A mostly retrograde move -- less impressive in almost every aspect than the gems that inspired it. It's by no means the worst game we've played, but only the most rabid of Star Wars fans (of which there are plenty) should take this one for a spin... hover... whatever.

    With one part uninspired gameplay, a liberal dash of visuals scraped straight from the bottom of the barrel and a grossly unpolished finish, developer SandBox has crafted a monster of a game, and it's barely got teeth, much less hind legs, to stand on.

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

    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.

    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.

    Sadly, the horrid control scheme from the original is left untouched, leaving the player to cry in agony.

    We come not to bury Spider-Man, but to lament that more could not be done to make the Nintendo 64 version of the game as sharp as its counterpart.

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