    Tries to avoid the woes of its predecessors by injecting some modern, albeit derivative, gameplay, but fails to really explore the platform it is built upon.

    Overall the story and concept of Warlords Battlecry III is very well presented. However, the lack of an upgraded graphics engine really gave me a sour taste in my mouth.

    Unfortunately, the game suffers from poor visuals that can make the experience of feeling like your actually flying an airplane somewhat lacking.

    Hardcore adventure players can still aquire some decent gameplay out of this title, but may find it rather simplistic due to its apparent targeting to new players to the genre.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has some semblance of plot similar to the movie, which it represents, attempts to recreate a comparable atmosphere, but ultimately fails to innovate or even successfully imitate previous games.

    The crashes are a great gimmick, but after the first couple of hours the replays become more of a nuisance than a positive effect.

    The courses are well laid out and challenging at the higher levels, but they are no different than a normal oval pavement track offering players nothing to see but the other opponents' vehicles.

    Only the most hardcore gamers will be able to look past the occasionally monotonous gameplay and poor audio and visuals to enjoy Shenmue II.

    It’s fun and some of the brutal visuals can be a blast to behold with friends, but on the whole, the game is just ok.

    While it adds some RPG elements and has some of the best, most colorful, artwork of any game, Otogi is just another hack and slash action game. Well, an action game with very poor camera controls and a confusing menu system.

    It might be worth a rent if you are really bored and have nothing but an Xbox and a weekend alone. I would suggest taking up reading or writing or some other monotonous hobby than to waste your time on this game.

    Frankly the music in SH sucks.
    • 57 Metascore

    While battling through hoards of baddies as the mean green fighting machines is fairly entertaining, especially in co-op mode with a friend, there just isn’t enough to here to make it worth anything more than a possible rent.

    Tries to avoid the woes of its predecessors by injecting some modern, albeit derivative, gameplay, but fails to really explore the platform it is built upon. As a consequence, this game is average at best.

    With a combination of repetitive tasks, mundane fighting, and the fact that the game only takes five hours to beat, Legacy of Goku is not a game, it is an insult to the fans.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    It's never a good sign when you start having problems before you even get to play the game. The installation proved to be quite a bitch.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A severe disappointment. Mediocre visuals and audio relay the game’s imprecise controls. Lacking innovative level design, the game is uninspired and extremely brief.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Monotonous combat, a lackluster story, and poor visuals are countered by moderately intriguing characters; however, this isn't nearly enough to salvage the game.

    The multiplayer game is the only place where the game shines with its ability to play on four GBA’s with the link cable with a single cartridge. With deathmatch and a couple other fun games, the multiplayer game has some fun left in it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The gameplay is as deep and as tight as previous games in this genre, but the gameplay is so perfectionist that the game is just not that much fun to play.
    • 83 Metascore

    As with all console versions of PSO, serious design flaws significantly detract from the game, namely poor enemy AI and sensory awareness, horrible targeting, and a thin plot.

    With some many other superb GameCube titles available, Wario World drops down to the bottom of the library with its below-average visual presentation, far too easy gameplay, and the promise of a great greedy game.

    In terms of longevity, don’t come in expecting much. This game will take most gamers 15 hours at the most to play through, and that’s if you can make it through the slow and dull opening hours.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    The game certainly has potential, but various flaws-bad user interface, poor presentation, fairly weak AI-kept it from truly finding a place in my heart.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The graphics are only average and the gameplay is plagued by a couple of nasty control issues.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    An entertaining, sidesplitting funny game in spite of some significant technical issues. The horrid camera needs constant adjustment, and enemy targeting is spotty.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    DP:BfN has numerous elements that make the game cumbersome to play, and drain it of enjoyment.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    So the graphics suck, the control is appalling, the intro is masturbatory, how is the gameplay you ask? Not too bad.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The lackluster sword fighting, terrible interface, and nasty bugs detract from the experience a great deal. Excellent naval combat isn't enough to make up for these issues.

    This generation of gamers may overlook this gem in the rough due to its rather hideous outward appearance. Sure this game is repetitive, but it serves as a great distraction and provides some downright wholesome fun.
