    The whole idea of platformer as scavenger hunt, though, has aged as well as a tuna sandwich left out on a hot California day. Sadly, this bear is starting the smell just as bad.

    Underneath the pretty particle effects and the elevator-style muzak, you have not only a nifty diversion, but also one hoohah of a two-player game that deserves more respect than it's getting.

    Unfortunately, while nice visuals, a humorous character, innovative play mechanics and good replay value are promising, the sluggish control and annoying camera problems will certainly frustrate most "True Believers."

    "Tenchu 2" remains something of a letdown, since it's missing too many of the elements that made the original so great, and doesn't fix any of the problems that plagued its predecessor.

    Let's get this out in the open -- "Seaman" can, and will, bore the hell out of you.

    Unfortunately, what could've been a pretty good fighting game turns out to be barely average, if it weren't for all the nice extra features this title has.

    Despite how much fun it is to t-bone another car at top speed, the general hollowness of the game dampens your fun before the weekend's over.

    It will just leave you with an empty feeling both inside your body and your wallet.

    Even snowboarding fans will find the game's steep learning curve frustrating more than anything else.

    Nintendo 64 owners will immediately be put off by the game's graphics, as well, which range from decidedly so-so to downright 'coyote ugly.'

    The game can never decided what resolution it wants to run in. Never before have I seen such a problem in a game -- it's so bad you can even see the textures on your car go from respectable DC quality textures to ugly N64-esque textures... one word: lame.

    If you absolutely love to shoot things and don't have enough blast-o-thons in your personal library already, by all means, support this tired series.

    While the visuals are decent, Virtua Athlete 2000 is little more than a rehashed version of "Decathlete" for the Saturn, with little replay value, originality, or depth.

    Somewhere along the way, the developers forgot to make the game fun... because playing through JMSC2000 is a boring, mind-numbing chore.

    Sub-par crapola.

    What makes it so disappointing is because it has such a great premise, stars a groovy character, and looks so damn good that you want to almost cry when you realize that the wily demon of mediocrity has left his fingerprints all over the game.

    From the horrid character design to the stiff gameplay, this game isn't worth the ROM it's written to.

    This is easily one of the worst racers for the Nintendo 64.

    In a game so reliant on running in straight lines and jumping from one ledge to another, maddeningly loose control is unforgivable.

    A hollow "V8" clone with none of that game's charm, and a lame drizzling of "Star Wars" atmosphere -- just enough to justify putting the name on the box cover.

    It's as if every major flaw of the aging PlayStation platform was meant to be exposed with this game -- from the over pixilated textures to the terrible draw-in distance... this game is just plain fugly.

    Almost everything that "Mario Party" did right, Sonic Shuffle does wrong, and to add insult to injury, it expects you to sit through repeated, lengthy load sessions to get to the next sequence of absolute un-fun.
