    The gameplay was not extremely bad, nor were the graphics. However, these were not particularly good either, and they were bogged down heavily by abysmal voice acting, a story that failed completely to create the desired effect, and more bugs than an entomologist's wildest dreams.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    With outdated graphics that showcase choppy animations and low-resolution textures, and below average audio, plagued by horrible voice acting, the game’s presentation fails.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The whole game concept is worn and exhausted, the graphics are shallow, the gameplay is repetitive, and the sounds are poor.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    A lack luster game that had fewer strengths than weaknesses. Featuring repetitive voiceovers, an unorganized interface and a story that never becomes as exciting as it sounds.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Its graphics proved it worthy to at least be played, but its horrible gameplay flaws caused it all to just end up in a tangled jumbled mush.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Combine a quickly aging game with a sloppy porting process and you have a lackluster game that can only claim high amounts of gore as a selling feature, although even that comes off flat.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Simplistic in concept and design, and tends to feel like a mini-game that was included in a more ambitious product.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    If the developers concentrated on one console version at a time, then maybe there would have been more depth and polish besides the fascinating dinosaurs.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Definitely more fun multiplayer than alone, I'm still not sure how long you'll want to play this one after the novelty wears off.

    • 42 Critic Score
    RHEM harkens back to the days of classic PC puzzle-adventures like Myst. Unfortunately, RHEM doesn’t possess quality graphics and audio to make it palatable while sitting and contemplating its tough puzzles.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    The game ultimately fails due to flawed and shallow gameplay.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Fighting games need deep, balanced gameplay to rise to the top, but X-Men: Next Dimension is severely hampered by shallow, unbalanced fighting action.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    The game is worth at least one run through, but after that the experience relies on inconsistent online gaming where the biggest challenge is finding someone to play with.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With the exception of new culture specific powers that are only available in multiplayer gaming, there is nothing in EEAC that enhances the gameplay experience or adds to what is available from the core Empire Earth game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Because of this control scheme, moving your sub is a constant frustration, as positioning your sub is very hard, and precise movements are damn near impossible.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A graphically eye catching title offering multiple game choices and services to use in the development of your perfect casino, but looking past this glitter and technical stability is a title offering no long term gameplay or challenge even to novice fans of the genre.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game is simply lame and feels like a cheap project that was not thoroughly designed. What could enhance gameplay? Nothing, if you ask me.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A mediocre "Dance Dance Revolution" in Jungle Book clothing.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Nothing short of an utter failure. Though Seven Studios did many things right, the horrible gameplay drags the rest of the game down.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Thrown in the face of a history of outstanding action gaming, Chaos Legion may just be one of the worst action titles of the year. Imperfect controls and lackluster gameplay.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Overall, the game puzzles are too easy, which makes the game boring at times.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite great graphics and wonderful sound quality, a shallow plot, sketchy gameplay and a rip-off feel make this title one you could leave on the shelf.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite a moderately intriguing story, the game suffers from jarring controls and a clunky combat interface. While the visuals are generally good, the audio is lacking for a survival-horror game and a few glitches prevent a truly enjoyable experience.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The gameplay is repetitive and not very engaging on any level. The graphics are just plain ugly and the voice acting is laughably bad.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Its main flaw is a lack of depth, whether it be in the graphics department, menu options or gameplay itself. What little strategy The Third wave involves is mostly geared towards stumping the clumsy AI.

    xXx
    One major flaw in the game’s level design, is how not one of the levels seems to have anything to do with the movie.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While the game is graphically impressive, and it has very tight controls, it's just no fun. Lara has been reduced to a simpleton, and so has her game.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the major problems with the game is the maps all look very similar. This causes another problem, which way do you go? I found myself getting lost a number of times just to have to run around to get back to where I needed to be.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The graphics are simply poor. The sound is painful to the ears at time, although it stuck very close to the original game.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It is worth a rental for the interesting four-player battle mode, but this one interesting feature cannot save a game that is lacking in so many other areas.
