    Gun
    It tries to be a big free roaming blockbuster but ultimately fails on too many accounts to make it what it wants to be.

    It’s a decent racing and dogfight hybrid that will appeal to some but leave many others feeling a bit let down by the repetitiveness and the lack of online play. [JPN Import]

    Addictive battle system.

    Maybe it was the developer switch or maybe it’s just that the Wii controls don’t fit the game, but SSX Blur is unfortunately a clunker. That being said, if you can get past the controls there is a ton of content to experience and unlock.

    The game is fun, but it has some tedious parts such as the helicopter stage or the parts where you are on top of the small ship. So if you want some good boss and mini-boss fights then this game is for you.

    The game isn't bad, but it's really nothing special.

    The game's missions were designed with portability in mind and the longest of them would only take an average person around 15-20 minutes to complete. Although with the short single-play, a long lasting multiplayer experience is always there waiting, granted you know a few other people with a copy of the game as well.

    But those who’ve played Outrun 2 and found themselves bored of it after a few days will find nothing here to reignite the flame.

    It's a great multi-player game, but single player can get very tedious.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    In the end the single player blows, online is fun, and the replayability is lessened by the lack of complexity. It’s a very uninvolved RTS.

    A solid if not heavily flawed title with the best online capabilities of any PSP title to date. So if you can get past the controls and the pacing this might be an ok purchase for you.

    It’s not the best RPG out there, far from that. But it’s still pretty fun o play, although it might need some getting used to.

    For the hardcore there’s not much here that you’ll be playing for more than an hour other than the training mode which gives you a lot of challenges but ultimately falls flat.

    It’s a shame that such a well thought out RPG story mode got destroyed by long loading times and lack luster driving mechanics.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Somewhat shallow, somewhat lacking in content, but a decent diversion for MMO fanatics if they’ve got no other online addiction at the time.

    A great addition to the series for fans and probably a decent rental for most. While things have been upgraded and new elements added on, it's still NFS and it still gets repetitive and boring after awhile. It's like EA's "Madden" of racing.

    While it’s true that for 70% of each stage while you are just mashing buttons and sending enemies flying, N3 is an enjoyable mindless romp, the fact of the matter is that the other 30% is so bad it definitely qualifies as “broken”. [JPN Import]

    The lack of stage types and offline multiplayer hinder the game's longevity a bit, but overall, Act: Zero plays well, the new FPB mode is fun, and the Standard mode still offers classic Bomberman fun. [JPN Import]

    The final big problem for Red Steel is its learning curve. You have to use the Wiimote + Nunchuk together in motion and in button pressing. This can lead most seasoned gamers to be thrown off for a good hour before picking things up. And with a short length of only 9ish hours, it’s a learning curve I’m not sure many will be willing to go for.

    Shin Budokai is miles better than Budokai 1 and 2. It still suffers a bit from being too simplistic, but still features much more depth than DBZ B1 and B2.

    A very average to mediocre game that’s held together by a good story and cast. [JPN Import]

    Take one part Sonic, add in one part racing, mix with two parts cheap deaths, and you’ve got Sonic Rivals. Fans may like it but I think most should steer clear.

    The graphics are really basic for a PS2 game, but the cinematics look incredible. The on-foot mode is just plain boring, ... and most of the game concentrates on that mode, sadly. [JPN Import]

    Overall the mission design is boring and repetitive, the graphics are so-so, the online is blah, the customization is awesome, and the overall experience isn’t worth the price of admission. Pass. [JPN Import]

    So honestly if you want to play this game to the fullest grab a Dreamcast, four controllers, and a copy of "Power Stone 1 & 2" as this port isn’t worth a damn unless you people to play with.

    I guess the biggest problem I had with Untold Legends 2 was the polish and synchronization of elements within the game. The story never felt worthwhile, the gameplay has lots of options but ultimately boiled down to mashing x, the sound and music always felt really out of place, and the multiplayer mode, while solidly constructed, left a lot to desire.

    If you want Tony’s latest upgrade then go for it, but if you’re looking for complete reinvention of the series you might want to hold out until next year.
