    Though its easy learning curve and flexible gameplay are clearly designed for the less than hardcore, it is surprisingly entertaining and good for a quick thrill.

    It's the arcade mode that drives this game home, and even though it's as deep as a stack of good Jaguar games, it's still fun to play.

    Its lack of originality only adds to its charm.

    While we all know that a life of crime ultimately doesn't pay, a joyride with the fresh and fast Smuggler's Run is rewarding through and through.

    This version of Sarge's Heroes seems to be the most workmanlike, competent and graphically solid of the bunch.

    The quintessential Harvest Moon, and Natsume will be hard-pressed to top this one in terms of added gameplay, additional farming tasks to complete, areas to explore and women to woo. For fans of the series, this is a must-buy, and a must-see for those looking for something a little different.

    While we've never actually driven a pickup or an old-school Cadillac, we would be willing to bet that it would be a lot easier to drive them in real life than it is in Speed Devils Online.

    It's fair to say that the interface stands out as one of the best we've seen in years. Shame we can't say the same about the game.

    This level is fairly fun and is one aspect of the game that keeps Andy MacDonald from being a huge, steaming pile of crap, instead making it passable into the realms of midsized steaming pile of crap.

    Is EX3 the worst fighter we've ever played? Absolutely not -- however, its mediocre fighting engine and uninspired visuals are yet another example of a once noble series gone sour.

    All we can tell you is that the game has mediocre graphics, poor sound, stability problems, an awkward premise and a whole lot of standing around. It may be utterly realistic, although the lack of any falling damage and the fact that wooly rhinos can magically sprint up sheer cliff walls make us doubt it.

    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.

    An improved version of last year's disaster is still not worth the having.

    As it stands on Sega's magic box, there's only the junk of civilization's decay to be found -- and it smells like someone's stinky afterthought that's been left to stew in the sun.

    As a pinball game, the tables are too barren and as an action/platform-like game, the pinball control is out of place.

    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.

    Plain, cold and uninspired, ESPN NBA 2Night has all the grit and soul of an Egg McMuffin.

    A thin game that is sometimes fun, but mostly routine, and with less depth and imagination than the great games it is copying.

    A waste of an excellent license and a great opportunity.

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

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

    There are too many nagging problems, from the stuttering animation to the strange, stooped-over look of most of the players, as if they couldn't stand up straight.

    Misses the mark by just a tad, but that shouldn't halt the admiring throngs.

    With its myriad bugs and lack of real multiplayer component, Jet Fighter IV is the sort of game that should have spent a few more months in the hangar.

    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.

    The music isn't quite as good (as its predecessor), and the gameplay has been simplified so much that it fast becomes mindless and quite repetitive.

    An ugly, hollow mess that disgraces its storied predecessors in every way.

    Is Gunman Chronicles a good total conversion? For the most part, yes. Is Sierra trying to milk the Gordon Freeman cow one too many times? Absolutely.
