    The fun of it, however, is pretty thin, and City Crisis is probably best as a one-night rental and no more.

    Victim rescue is pretty unrewarding. All you need to do is stand over a victim and right click, and they vanish.

    Despite nice effects like the lighting on the torches in dungeons and the water effects that let you see the fishies swimming along, the whole game grows rather old rather fast. This happens because the game is indeed old.

    But the FPS of the characters rendered their movements choppy and the general artistic schemes – the pudgy blue Pimmons and boringly animated Amazons – were less funny than they were just not to be taken seriously.

    Mad Maestro!'s repetition, missing variety and sundry flaws make it the runt of the litter so far.

    This game is both frustratingly easy and frustratingly difficult.

    The primary problem with Mall Tycoon is that you don't get nearly enough feedback from your shoppers.

    It should work; it should be entertaining, even if not incredibly complex. Unfortunately, the game appears to have been coded by definite grown-ups with no sense of fun.

    This seems less a case of a fun-filled movie inspiring a game than of a development company getting assigned a game by their publisher and told to crank it out quickly.

    Acclaim employees take note--varying stats alone do not a satisfying roster of combatants create...that's where novel animations and sound bytes should've come in.

    It took forever for Kirby to make it to Nintendo 64 but truth be told, after this formulaic and instantly forgettable cartridge, nobody’s likely to start whining about how long it takes for the ol’ pink pudge to make his return. Pass on this one.

    If this is some kind of punishment for all those people who complained "Onimusha" was too short, then Metro3D have produced what might be considered the ultimate gaming hell.

    Playing this game reminded me of being at a family outing when I was a kid and picking up a coke can to take a drink only to find out that one of my relatives had used it as an ashtray.

    With a boring story and uninspired game play, there is hardly reason to recommend this game, especially with the market filled with RTSes and RPGs that stand head and shoulders above KUF.

    This is the kind of plague that should see Pac-Man quarantined and approached only by trained disease control experts in the shelter of a hazardous materials suit.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Not only is the gameplay un-revised on this much more powerful platform, but much of the former joy in the series has been drained away. The characters, levels and gameplay are essentially flat.

    Wake up designers; a 5.56mm round grazing a forearm doesn't kill.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The problem is, the raw mechanics of the game are simply quite the logistical chore, with very little chance to even sit back and enjoy the otherwise-entertaining detail animations which might lend some humor to the game.
    • 37 Metascore

    Equal parts aggravation and disappointment.

    It is the fight system that fails Kakuto Chojin... once you discover each AI fighter's weakness, you can defeat them effortlessly with any character.

    Just reviewing this game has proven to be an agonizing experience.
    • 54 Metascore

    Even worse are the environments; some of the most amazingly desolate, dreary realms to be included in a game.

    Bringing gamers a sense of nostalgia may be alright in space shooters and RPGs, but in a racing game, especially in the visuals department, it just isn’t right.

    I truly fear poor old Robert Louis Stevenson is turning over in his grave at the atrocity that has been committed in his name.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    It takes some special effort to make a game so frustrating in all of its aspects that it seems to have been made by gaming sadists with the express intent to torture innocent gamers.

    Hmmm...step on a landmine, play Green Rogue. Landmine, Green Rogue...Ah! Landmine it is!

    If the lame fighting mechanics, bad music, boring environments (each city is represented by a bare wooden stage with a different backdrop curtain) and lack of gameplay modes weren't enough, the single biggest problem with Kabuki Warriors' single player game is that it is RIDICULOUSLY easy.

    For the large group whose main interest in a Britney Spears videogame is sexual voyeurism, the inability to watch the breast-enlarged, navel-exposed, hip grinding onscreen display is a real let-down.
    • 39 Metascore

    The game's lack of focus, poor design, and beta-like release state will put it not in the forefront of strategy discussion boards, but rather the back of discount software bins.

    Most everything about the PS2 version makes us cringe, especially since we know how much the PC version of Unreal Tournament rocks.
