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

    Offers fantastic action in its quality and quantity, but repetitive design.

    This is perhaps the best format for a game using the license to take, but I was expecting more interaction with live individuals, more research and searching for clues, more of an adventure game along the lines of those that appeared on the PC platform in years past.

    The controls are fairly well created however the game moves at a slow pace and unless you have mastered the combos before the match your robot will be laying on his back most of the game.

    While there isn’t anything that makes the game bad, its short length and uninspiring gameplay will leave you without any desire to return to the game for further play.

    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.

    A good single player building game that, although has improvements, lacks long-term gameplay abilities.

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

    Beyond some frustrating gameplay, Night of 100 Frights brings the visuals and sounds of the long running cartoon to life in this title, with a huge map to explore on your way to solving the mystery.

    It's biggest strength is its tutorial and teaching ability. The sheer knowledge of chess that can be gained by moving through the tutorials or by simply playing against the computer is amazing.

    The most disappointing game I have ever played. Expected to extend the superb gameplay, style, and attitude of the first game, Devil May Cry 2 fails to improve in any form.

    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.
    • 86 Metascore

    Due to its paltry length and lack of decent multiplayer options, I can’t wholeheartedly recommend this game. It is, however, a solid offering.

    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.

    A severe disappointment. Mediocre visuals and audio relay the game’s imprecise controls. Lacking innovative level design, the game is uninspired and extremely brief.

    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.

    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.
    • 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.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    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.

    DP:BfN has numerous elements that make the game cumbersome to play, and drain it of enjoyment.

    While there are many teams to choose from, the gameplay is uninspired, mostly due to the poor AI, which it won't matter what team you choose. You can see all that Ultimate Beach Soccer has to offer in less than ten minutes. OK, under five minutes.

    The game’s mediocre gameplay is accentuated by a lack of variety. Simplicity is essential for puzzle gameplay, yet TTA takes simplicity to the point of monotony.

    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.
    • 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
    There weren’t any killer mistakes, but all the little details like the unnatural character animations and the poor control setup start to add up.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    Weighed down by repetitive gameplay and non-obligatory item collection, the game is uninterestingly simple.
