    If you have a burning urge to spend $20 and have already gone through the other puzzlers on the PSP, Luxor the Wrath of Set isn’t the worst puzzle game out there. It’s just really uninspired.

    Sadly there’s no traditional one-on-one mode, so players aren’t given the chance to inflict heaps of damage on one another.

    Enemies in Blade II display some of the worst AI to date. They tend to attack only when you get close to them. There are no variations in enemy attacks.

    Worse than the usual mediocre movie spinoffs, which is saying something. Youngsters might have the attention span to find completing the game entertaining, but everyone is better off playing Ultimate Alliance—a vastly superior game.

    If you're already wary of Japanese strategy RPGs, then be sure to stay even further away from Gladius. It's got as many menus, and its battles are slower and less rewarding. LucasArts clearly tried to make everything look and feel good, but Gladius is ultimately done in by the leaden gameplay.

    We can’t stress how much fun we had with Super Off Road. It truly is one of the more timeless arcade racing games.

    The camera is even worse than in the main mode -- odd, when it could've just taken a zoomed-in version of the isometric view that games like Baldur's Gate have used for eons.

    "King's Field" was a slow, clumsy, fairly-boring-to-look-at first-person hack-and-slasher with a legendarily lousy framerate. Deep Labyrinth is all of those too, except that its framerate isn't bad enough to pass into legend.

    The major control issues are a hurdle many gamers won’t want to overcome. They ruin what would be an otherwise fun game.

    A beautiful but deeply flawed game whose mediocrity is all the more frustrating when you consider that gameplay could have been vastly improved with a few simple fixes. With a controllable camera or targeting system, the game would easily transition hateful to average.

    If this whole review sounds a little down on what appears to be a competent video poker game, it's because in this reviewer's opinion, World Poker Tour is missing the two key ingredients in any good poker game. Money and intimacy.

    More open-ended environments, greater character customization, trickier puzzles, and smarter enemies would have all made for a memorable trip.

    Ace in Action is a mindless shooter that’s too short, too easy, and a poor fit with the source material.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It just fails to reach the bar set by the best racers on the system, not to mention it doesn't come close to enjoying the level of polish or fun present in the console iterations of Underground.

    The most puzzling omission, however, is Garou: Mark of the Wolves (1999), which makes the Fatal Fury saga painfully incomplete.

    Two years later, this doesn't look any better than Cavia's earlier efforts -- its visuals are marred by aliasing that's unforgivable at this stage, and the animation blending is so primitive that you can't even reload while moving -- while its design doesn't try very hard at much of anything.

    Takes an amusingly bizarre sport and runs with it, but just doesn't run far enough. Even the power-up--laden off-road courses feel uninspired, with unremarkably physics and control, middling graphics, and a general air of boredom throughout the whole production.
    • 66 Metascore

    From the bland characters and bland graphics to the underdeveloped control system to the weak upgrades, there isn’t much to this game.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The missions feel boring and repetitive after a while, and the combat is a mess. While the story is solid, and the overall presentation of the game is pretty good, the floundering gameplay manages to sink the entire fleet.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Just simply on the jittery, crunchy, slow, and empty side.

    From the thin level design to the promising but ultimately limited combo system, Sidetracked seems more like a proof of concept than a final product. It does break out into some very cool moves once in a while, but most of them can be had for free, simply by tuning into "Adult Swim."
    • 66 Metascore

    Certainly the higher-level player vs. player content has potential, but it should be a crime to require a player to wade through hours of mind-numbing gameplay to get there.

    Here's the harsh truth about My Street: It's not a great place to visit, and you definitely wouldn't want to live there.
    • 44 Metascore

    Suffers from a lack of replay value: Once you get the hang of its flawed controls, it is possible to get a gold medal in each event within an hour or so of play, leaving little reason to ever touch the game again.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The stuff that fills the holes between the normally brief – albeit mostly fun – combat takes up way too much time, and feels so banal and lifeless, it manages to overpower the good bits and drag down the whole experience.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even though this is a budget title at about 20 bucks, there's no way the graphics and the frustrating gameplay justify the expense. You're better off saving up for something with more lasting appeal and more, well, fun.

    For most gamers the only enjoyment you'll get out of the game will be mocking it with your friends.

    If you're already a fan of point-and-click adventure, then you'll probably dig it. If not, then get out the tissues and be prepared to be bored to tears.
    • 51 Metascore

    Isn't a complete disaster, but it's undoubtedly the worst outing in the franchise's history. Its unresponsive controls and shallow gameplay are what holds it back from seeing its true potential.

    Maybe if the characters were more iconic. Maybe if this would’ve been a true sequel instead of a party game. Maybe if the game were fun. Maybe if monkeys could tango.
