    • 40 Critic Score
    There are significant flaws in every aspect of the game that drags down the quality of the racing experience, minimizes replay value, and reduces immersion in the game.

    In all sports games, but especially baseball, long-term engagement involves such fundamentals as tracking statistics, drafting players, and building successful teams. ISP2k3 fails to provide this.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Falls short in almost every aspect of a western style shooter. Fans of the arcade style of run and gun gameplay will find some value in the game but for the most part fans of the shooter genre will find an excellent concept for a game gone a stray.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    The graphics are somewhat outdated for being on the PlayStation 2 and unfortunately the gameplay lacks as well.
    • 49 Metascore

    My advice: do yourself a favor and stay clear of this well-marked landmine.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Even the inclusion of some new game variations (for Tetris anyways) cannot eliminate the feeling of having been here, done that, and seen everything there is to see many times before.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    There are no interesting weapons to find, no magical armor or shields, no amazing magic spells to learn, and no interesting enemies.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    Not only is the gameplay not fun, it is downright boring. The button mashing beat ‘em up is a genre that needs to be done away with and this game is a perfect example why.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    Underachieves in all aspects of game design. The level design and gameplay are boring, unimaginative, and repetitive.

    "What in the world was Midway thinking?” That was the exact thought that went through my head as I continually played this travesty of a game.
    • 58 Metascore

    If half the effort was spent on improving gameplay as was exerted in acquiring licensed products, then the game would have been much better. Sadly, this is not the case.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Offering no new gameplay styles, limited map enhancements, and unorthodox NPC AI, Aliens vs Predator 2: Primal Hunt seems to be just that, a primal update to an excellent storyline driven series.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Unoriginal and repetitive.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    No soul, no panache, no cool. The extremely repetitive gameplay and poor controls, along with mediocre graphics and a sub-par plot make this title a strong candidate for the bargain bin (or maybe even the round file).
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    This game stinks like raw, untreated, sewage. The gameplay is short lived, repetitive, and poorly balanced.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The controls and gameplay are as poorly designed as the graphics and audio.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's tedious, frustrating, poorly designed, lacks any sort of graphical flair, and is all but guaranteed to induce boredom within the first ten minutes, never mind the approximately two hours it takes to finish the game.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It baffles me how a game like this could be made. I cannot fathom why, during the development process, someone did not just say, “Enough is enough,” and scrap the project entirely.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Lacks any great game modes, the controls are wacky at times, the AI needs some major work and the name just doesn’t fit.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Exceptionally bad. The graphics are terrible, the sound is worse, and the gameplay is boring and slow.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While the lack of strategic depth and animal-centric theme might have made this a good candidate for younger gamers, an under-developed audio/visual presentation will probably lose their attention quickly.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 28 Critic Score
    The concept is interesting, if somewhat strange, but the slow, difficult, gameplay and poor graphics make the fun come screeching to a halt.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    It is never a good sign when most of your fun comes from laughing at the game, and you derive enjoyment in continuing to play so you can find what else is wrong with it. Skip this one. It represents a low water mark in my library of arena fighting games.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 24 Critic Score
    It’s a shame when a good-looking game gets ruined by the fact that it’s not any fun to play.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    To put it bluntly, I needed to force myself to play this piece of unpolished drivel. First, the control has the most atrocious interface I have ever had the displeasure to witness.
    • 42 Metascore

    If you’re a fan of stealth gameplay, avoid Mission: Impossible: Operation Surma because it involves neither tactics nor stealth. Even if you are an avid Mission: Impossible fan, this game has little to do with the franchise other than its name.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    It's a rush job, pure and simple, and it really is a shame that a once respectable series was reduced to this level of pure and utter deplorability.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 14 Critic Score
    Although I have no gripe with the stable of boxers included here, I think the game would have been a lot more enjoyable if other equally despised personalities were licensed for the game. Just imagine the possible matches, Tyson versus O.J. Simpson, Hussein versus John Rocker, Bin Laden versus Enron board members. That would be fun no matter how bad the game sucked.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 12 Critic Score
    It didn’t look good, it didn’t play good, and it didn’t sound good. You’d probably have more fun playing backgammon online with your mother-in-law.

    In [Shrapnel Games'] 5 reasons to own Space HoRSE: They don’t make games like this anymore...Thank god! This one makes me want to go back to my Vextrex.
