    Everything from the pointless showdown mode to the almost complete absence of anything to unlock makes the game feel raw in a negative, unfinished way. Not the hardcore, wrestling kind of fans know and love.

    The developers' attempts to create a zany story, the game leaves you without a sense of purpose.

    Once you get used to the quirky, low-budget sensibility One Must Fall: Battlegrounds is a decent fighter, especially for online play. But the random crashes really put a damper on the fun.

    There’s something decidedly satisfying seeing your hard work and meticulous planning pay off with a trip to the Super Bowl. But that trip is fraught with so many pitfalls – the most annoying being the rigid scheduling issues – that you’ll need superhuman patience to see it through to the end.

    Suffers from outdated technology being applied to a game design that doesn't really know what it wants to be.
    • 67 Metascore

    It's too bad more attention wasn't paid to crafting a more compelling gameplay engine, but this is one case where style over substance isn't such a bad thing.

    The physics appear sound and there are plenty of ways to tweak your vehicle, but the game has no spark. Easy mode is too dull and not at all true to the sport, and normal and pro modes are too demanding.

    Quaint graphics, recognizable characters, easy gameplay, and many mini-games give Barnyard some staying power with its target audience. For older gamers, the game is entirely standard and boring.

    Yet, gameplay is still the biggest flaw, with inconsistent AI (the computer never runs and doesn’t manage the clock effectively in the second half) and electric football-style physics.

    If every mission is going to take place around the same five blocks, try giving the different areas a bit of character instead of exploding walls. Make bosses that are fun to beat up and not just another thing you throw cars at until they stop moving. Just getting rid of the multitude of minor glitches could have easily raised the score.

    The real lesson here is that there's a place for a run-of-the mill shooter. Just keep those aspirations modest. Throw in teammates and base defense, and you can throw your entire project into turmoil.

    The laughably bad voice acting will irritate, the ornery puzzle situations will annoy, and everything will be over so quickly you’ll wonder why you bothered in the first place.

    Just not a good game, no matter how much you love the Gundam universe. It's repetitive and unchallenging and not at all up to the system's capabilities.

    It’s a shame that the one good idea in this streetball title had to be overshadowed by bad execution and a mediocre presentation.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The overall speed of the game slows down substantially when there's too much activity on screen.

    Between the dull punchfests, the insanely accurate enemies, and the extra difficulty created by forcing the player to rely on autotargeting, completing Dead to Rights quickly becomes an act of will.

    Driv3r tries to be more than just a driving game, but it looks like Tanner should get his butt back behind the wheel and stay there.

    This is more in the line of a free Flash game on the web, or something Namco could have pitched at DS download kiosks.

    As lousy as the dragon combat is, when someone picks up a dragon game, they want to eat humans, not be one.

    Visually, the game has a rather muddy and faded look -- it just isn't up to snuff. Although car damage can affect driving, none of it shows up in the visuals.

    There's almost nothing to recommend here save for the novelty of doing a flipside grind into Frankenstein.

    If you can't go anywhere without your Chococat pencil case, go ahead and pick up Roller Rescue. We're sure you'll manage to delude yourself into thinking it's great.

    The load times sometimes last longer than it takes to complete a few of the actual minigames, and there’s nothing novel going on in this game, but with no competition on the PSP it's a decent choice for quick, clean fun.

    Keep this one on the bench and hope that some off-season workouts can elevate it to starting status.

    Plays just like it looks: a lumbering version of "Crazy Taxi."

    It’s got some excellent gameplay ideas that are marred by sloppy execution and balance issues. A lot of these problems could have been fixed in the PC port, but they haven't been.

    It's a good premise but the game proves to be boring over the long haul... it's just too simplistic and easy to hold your attention for more than a couple days.

    A good-looking but brain-dead, thumb-numbing game.

    Van Helsing really isn’t a good game. Which means, in the context of flick-based titles, it's about average. If you’re tired of the "Devil May Cry" clones, then Van Helsing is definitely not for you.

    By diluting the elements that set NFL Blitz apart from other football games, Midway has left the door open for its game to be compared to "Madden NFL 2004" and "ESPN NFL Football." Unfortunately, there is no comparison.
