    While what's here is very good, the problem is that there are perhaps twenty seconds of original composition in the whole game! The rest just loops for all eternity, prodding you to skip past menu after menu just so you can escape the irritation of not-quite-grinding guitar and the like.

    The graphics are surprisingly good and showcase exactly what the Gameboy Advance is capable of.

    If SWRS3:RS were a person, I would have diagnosed it with a bi-polar disorder of some kind. Moments of sheer unbridled happiness come as quickly as they go, replaced with a gut-wrenching sadness that leaves the player feeling empty and bewildered inside.

    I have no difficulty recommending this one for retro gamers, as it's the best package I can recall Midway sending our way, but others might want to steer clear.

    Those familiar with the series are likely to feel right at home thanks to GitS's nicely designed 3d environments that appear to have been ripped straight from the TV series...In the end though it's the gameplay that matters. And in that regard Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex has come up decidedly average.

    As with the gameplay, the weapons of Dredd vs Death also manage to walk the fine line between licensed glory and gaming mediocrity.

    It's never a good sign when adjectives such as linear, bland and dull spring to mind after a mere 2 hours behind the pad, but that's exactly what happens here. [JPN Import]

    While the game is enjoyable enough for a short romp, and the weapon selection offers a bit of replay value, I can't imagine why I would want to play this game in a month, let alone in a year.

    To put it simply, the game is horribly slow. The framerate is so devastating, that at a point during the second level, playing the game becomes literally impossible...One of the biggest disappointments in my gaming career.

    Its coolest feature is the glossy cover art. Dig inside and what you'll find is a game devoid of personality, thrills, and fun. In short, Enter the Matrix is everything it shouldn't have been, and nothing more.

    The senseless slaughter of innocents continues with our boy in the chicken suit, Billy being subjected to countless humiliating deaths thanks to a brutally merciless camera. Whether it's a sneak attack by a pack of bouncing bat things or a sudden drop that seemingly comes out of nowhere, rest assured you're going to be just as surprised the 1000th time as you were the 1st.

    While playing Gungrave, I found myself glancing at the clock over and over, seeing how much time had passed. The game felt really, really long as it droned on and on. The sad part is that the game is actually quite short — it's just that damn boring.
