    Although games of this type don't need to be flashy to be enjoyable, Dungeon Dice Monsters takes an embarrassing, bare-bones approach to presentation that does little to bring the player into the game's world.

    Performance gets choppy in certain parts of the city (Istanbul especially). Cars tend to pop into view and there are never more than maybe four or five other cars onscreen at any given time.

    The action and violence are satisfying enough to make the game marginally recommendable, but only barely. Add in the complete lack of any multiplayer options, a terrible ending, and Clive Barker’s Jericho feels like a game where the good parts are overwhelmed by the shortcomings.

    The greatest crime depicted in the game isn't Syndrome's machinations, but the speed with which the lame design renders dull action out of such cool characters.

    Remarkably lacking.

    Improving your rider's living conditions aside, there's nothing here that hasn't been done countless times before.
    • 57 Metascore

    But the lack of definable strengths and weak multiplayer options make it really easy for the average gamer to leave it on the store shelf.

    Bruce Campbell voices Ash's dialog, which should please fans of the movies, but his deadpan delivery might come across as bad acting to those not familiar with the distinct style of his character.

    Even the most determined Man U follower stuck in the bowels of America would be better off editing together a team in Konami's masterpiece than taking the easy way out offered here.

    Even as a budget title, Elite Warriors: Vietnam is an underwhelming game. The AI is buggy and ineffective, the missions are stale, and the strategic elements feel hollow and, ultimately, pointless.

    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.

    It may be junk, but at least it's well-made junk.
    • 65 Metascore

    Almost engaging. Despite dripping with cliché, the world is a fun one to visit. It would be much easier to stomach the numerous design flaws had they delivered on their promise in the storyline.

    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.
    • 72 Metascore

    It's passable in short spurts, but if you’re looking for something deep and challenging, look elsewhere.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A generic click-fest with the occasional cutscene of Colin Farrell riding on a horse and the sounds of Vangelis blaring in the background. Ick.

    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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A depressingly face-value take on a dystopian future that works neither as a game or a parody, except of itself. There's some humor in each arrest procedure, but it wears thin quickly.

    With its fair share of gameplay issues and dated presentation, this Samurai walks away with his blade between his legs.
    • 44 Metascore

    It's just a shame that more care wasn't taken to make his life seem less repetitive and more diverse.

    Dark Messiah is a frustrating title, since moments of fun are outweighed by long stretches of tedium.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Doomed to be a bargain bin special, Without Warning is strictly middle-of-the-road from top to bottom. There are a few shining moments in the game, but heed our warning and leave this one to rest in peace.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It’s too unresponsive, there are rare fouls (outside of the ridiculous dive button), the replays are appalling, and the game just doesn’t feel enough like soccer.

    What frustrated us most about Republic is that we can see a hint of greatness. We saw many ways to influence the game, but they're all reigned in by the mission design. In its current state Republic: The Revolution plays more like a failed coup.

    Perhaps the biggest disappointment is the way Reservoir Dogs mangles the movie's complex story.

    Far Cry Vengeance is the game that will make you think twice about coming within 100 yards of a first-person shooter on the Wii.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game just never firmly establishes a sense of direction. All told, you're basically thrown into a scenario and told to care, with no supporting material to help an intelligent human being establish anything remotely resembling suspension of disbelief.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A solid disappointment. Fans of the series will find nothing to like here and real-time strategy gamers have plenty of better games to play.
    • 66 Metascore

    Perhaps the most puzzling element of Grand Adventure is the lack of a four-player mode, which is an essential ingredient for the fast-paced, item collecting, button-mashing style of fighting game.

    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]
