    For anyone with a passing interest in the sport, we recommend dusting off those lawn darts and firing up the barbeque.

    Tenchu just hasn't changed a whole lot since its inception six years ago, and that was hardly acceptable when "Wrath of Heaven" originally came out, last year. It's even less so now.

    Fans of F1 racing may be able to put up with the game's lack of features and frustrating nature. This simply isn't a racing game, however, that will appeal to a mainstream audience or win any new fans for the sport.

    A lackluster follow-up to the exceptional Generations, particularly because the enhancements here are non-existent.

    The control setup here is undoubtedly unique, and works great for the most part. It's just not intuitive or interesting enough to build an entire adventure game around.

    The lack of character customization is another issue, with fixed classes and no input allowed on individual skills, attributes, or spells other than purchasing armor, weapons, and accessories each time you visit town.

    Although it's an excellent representation of "Law & Order" in playable form, there just isn't much to play.

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

    The series makes a blind leap into a new genre, only to fall flat on his face satisfying neither the fans of puzzle or action games.

    The novelty of the premise wears thin after about an hour. This is not good, especially for a game that takes about 25 hours to complete.

    While The Moment of Silence does offer a compelling storyline that will keep you at least mildly interested through to the game’s multiple endings, the agonizingly slow pace of things within sections combined with the frequently laughable dialog will turn most gamers away.

    While it's not the unplayable mess of the "World War II Online" debut, Eve is still firmly in the beta stage in all respects except monthly fees. [19 June 2003]

    While being well-coded, it just doesn't offer the excitement which should come with the Race of Champions.

    Game Over. And I couldn't be happier.

    But anyone looking for a good brawler on the GBA needs to look somewhere other than Dragon Ball GT: Transformation.

    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.

    Its galling brevity combined with the inability to actually watch many of your tricky labors make it a one-shot deal at best, with little replay value -- except perhaps in real life.

    Light on substance and heavy on style. If you're a One Piece madman who simply has to have everything to do with the series, it's not a horrible game. It's just not exceptional. As a multiplayer party game, it's good for a quick fix every once in a while.

    Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam isn't a sell out on par with hawking Bagel Bites but it's close.

    Loose controls and repeating levels marred what could have been a break out hit for a series that desperately needed one.

    There's just not enough to juggle in this low impact virtual theme park to keep sim junkies mesmerized. Roller coaster crafting is way too dumbed down to make the process feel like creation.

    Both the 360 and PS3 versions aren’t the greatest first-person shooters ever made, but they’re decent enough to satiate your apparently endless need to keep fighting the same war over and over and over again. Don’t bother with this game on the Wii, though.

    Unfortunately, when the best part of a game is the absurdly vulgar audio, there's definitely a problem in the overall design.

    While Madden NFL 2005 is playable in its current form, most will tire of the shaky visuals and slippery controls faster than Mr. Madden slaps ham on a hoagie.

    Soon enough, Dawn of a New World settles down to standard fantasy-quest plot starring standard fantasy characters.

    Avoid this one; it's a hairball that's not worth coughing up the cash to play.

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

    While there are many characters to unlock and compete with, it takes a long time to see any of them thanks to the incredibly slow rate at which you acquire powerful cards.

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

    Mana and magic system aside, the game’s primary selling point is the same as so many other RPGs: a couple dozen hours of content. And if merely killing time is the goal, then it could fill the bill.
