    Some great new characters join with old favourites to bring a pretty decent story line and some great fighting action.

    But even if you only go online with this game for a month or 2, it will be wholeheartedly worth it.

    Overall the whole thing is immensely enjoyable with a soundtrack that will get you linking your GameCube up to your stereo straight away.

    The simplistic controls greatly add to gameplay, as it is easy to pick up and start playing right away.

    Absolute enjoyment! A very well made game, not flawless, but great fun.

    EA puts more emphasis on realistic gameplay making the experience less approachable. Passing, for instance, needs to be executed pretty accurate otherwise you’ll lose the puck easily.

    The control system however leaves you in the dark at times as it could be a bit more practical and intuitive.

    Gladius isn’t a game for everyone, only the RPG enthusiast will fully appreciate the gameplay, which with 2 story modes, good for at least 45 hours each, is a time-consuming endeavour.

    2002 FWC suffers from a lack of teams, little weather and time of day conditions and the frustrating inability to change the stadium and match duration while setting up a game, this has to be done in the options.

    It's varied enough to please even the most critical of gamers and it's fair to say that you're likely to encounter almost every genre of gameplay on this tiny disc.

    The graphics are top-notch, the sound is catchy and simply lovable, the controls are delightful and the gameplay is original and just so much fun. But the whole thing is dragged down by the frighteningly short game time.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The sound and story are nothing special but the gameplay is top notch in both one player and party games.
    • 88 Metascore

    Career mode in AI is amazingly fun because there is so much to do and see in each level.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Hugely entertaining while it lasts, but lacks ambition when you want it most. You get the feeling sometimes they're saving the really good stuff for the sequel, just teasing us for the time being with a game that feels a lot like a trailer for its successor. But a damn good trailer, mind you.

    Dead to Rights though appears to have the right amount of each gaming component so that it's the closest yet to a big budget action movie on a home console.
    • 84 Metascore

    Aside from seeing the film on big screen, this is the most intense Lord of the Rings experience available.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The arsenal of moves has expanded substantially, the most obvious of them is that you can run around, climb rooftops and controlling vehicles. The latter is poorly executed and is hardly fun, because the cars physics aren’t exactly convincing.
    • 79 Metascore

    It may be an old idea now and critics will argue that it's simply an updated Playstation 2 game but when it's this much fun it really doesn't matter.

    Redwood created a magnificent detailed Middle Earth, and fans of LOTR will be pleased because of that. Yet for those who regularly play RPG's the game offers nothing you have seen before, it suffers from repetitiveness and a more than mild difficulty level.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    An enjoyable, challenging, and generally good FPS game. The lack of multiplayer obviously lets it down, but this is still a great shooter.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A nice combination of action and puzzling, soaked with humour, keeping the experience fresh most of time.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Hardcore players will surely appreciate the gameplay experience and overlook the little control issues.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Now we want Batman, Superman, Punisher and all the other masked musclemen to follow suit! Please.

    Being a Tony Hawk clone doesn’t mean that this isn't a quality title with plenty of fresh features, well worth of giving it a try.

    Gameplay is very cinematic, and it feels as close to a Bond movie as is humanly possible...You feel like you really are Bond, and if you think about it, what more could you want from a Bond game?

    Stay clear of this game if you don’t have time to play lots of it though, because after you get used to life on the farm it’s hard to turn back.

    It brings new life to the bongos.

    You’ll have a great time playing Wario World without any doubt, but it’ll be over before you want it to be. If you don’t want to spend money on short games, try to rent or borrow Wario World, it’s really worth playing.

    Even after all these years, the loveable yellow circle with the eating disorder still has what it takes to entertain gamers everywhere.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Don’t play this game unless you have the rest of the day to thrash out your anger on the small, cute zoo animals.
