    Overall, you could complete this game in around five hours first time, plus maybe another hour if you want to bother collecting 100% items.

    The problems with the game though far outweigh the positive aspects and whilst this overall design probably looked good on paper there's not nearly enough variety to sustain your interest.

    Frustration is high when playing Wreckless, time limits are short, and the arrow is useless when it points through a brick wall, controls can be awkward and traffic is dense and irritating, never feeling the need to move out of the way of the large truck heading down the wrong lane.

    Rarely have I seen such uninspired awkward gameplay for a GameCube game, well nurtured visuals yes, but the game has not one interesting or surprising moment.

    It doesn’t look good, it sounds terrible and is way too easy. Sure it’s supposed to be a kids game, but kids don’t mind their games looking good and they’re also better at playing games than a lot of developers seem to think.

    The extras are nice but not worth the purchase of a game you already own, especially since the DC version runs smoother.

    It's really a shame they couldn't think of a way to keep the battles interesting for a longer time, the lack of variation really kills the game.

    The biggest problem with LA Heist is that although it's on the so called 'next gem' consoles it's not as enjoyable or immersive as SCI's stab to the genre some years ago.

    An enjoyable, challenging, and generally good FPS game. The lack of multiplayer obviously lets it down, but this is still a great shooter.

    Its still great fun but if it more time was spent on the graphics and camera angles it would of made a amazing game.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 27 Critic Score
    It's got annoying gameplay, slow speech and dialogue scenes which are un-skippable, and a camera that just wants to do everything but help you play the game - (stopping in mid battle whilst still getting bombarded with cannonballs to try and move the camera to behind your character). The results are a perfect mess that just isn't fun.

    It is without doubt the worst thing on the cube. The Graphics, Gameplay, Sound and Lifespan are all extremely poor, and I still can’t believe two of the most respected company’s in the business have put their names on it. Laughable.

    The loading times will put you to sleep. The difficulty doesn’t even seem to change when you increase the settings. The gameplay becomes too repetitive and has little to no variety.

    Football purist may not be interested, but if you like over the top arcade sport sims in the tradition of "NBA Jam" and "NHL Hitz," this is an excellent choice to satisfy your football needs during the winter.

    • 57 Critic Score
    The problems are just too numerous to mention ranging from clumsy controls to frustrating camera angles and that's before you even get to the rather weak AI of almost anyone you decide to battle with.

    Definitely one for the younger gamers (and by that I mean the under tens) and fans of the boy genius who'll no doubt find enough to entertain them.

    Not even for preteen fans of the Disney characters. They will cry tears and disappointment, rage, and anger. Like my brother when he played this game. "What have they done to Mickey?"
    • 39 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    While not as bad as the majority of critics are reporting it's certainly not worthy of a full price title.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    A dull, uninspriring pile of nonsense. Poor graphics, awful sound and a severe lack of gameplay make this a game that is best left on the shelves.

    He, who didn't get caught by the beyblade mania, will have enough after about 15 minutes, because there is just not enough depth in the game.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Stay far away from this game.
