    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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The graphics are very dated, and aside from some of the complications and innovations it has a pretty old school RTS feel.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The story was bleak and the camera angles have you craving for some good ‘ol Resident Evil. The game engine allows for some neat stuff, but is very constrictive.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The game is very pretty, and features some huge, fun levels, but it just wasn't enough to keep me playing.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Bass 2002 seems to have tried to make this both a simulation and an arcade game, but has failed on both fronts, making this a lackluster experience at best.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Mediocre at best, but the straw that broke the camel's back was the fact that there is no battery to save your scores to. No battery, no scores, no fun.

    • 55 Critic Score
    They took an FPS and turned it into a racing game. I don't know about you, but that seems a bit weird, and once you play the game, it gets much weirder, indeed.

    When I first played SST, I considered it a guilty pleasure; by the time I finished I considered it a waste of time.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    This game was a frustrating mess, and I wouldn’t even recommend renting it for a couple of bucks.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    Had some potential, but thanks to mediocre gameplay and a rather incomplete storyline (both products of poor developing execution) Galerians: Ash has "bargain bin" written all over it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    Its aspects of action, while moderately engaging, are wholly unbalanced; in addition, the elements of strategy are watered-down for ease of play.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    Features a rarely used gameplay mechanic, but on the other hand, the game is totally unoriginal. The gameplay is entertaining, but the level designs are redundant.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    The GameCube is in dire need of some original, innovative exclusives and Spirits and Spells is far from being either of those. Instead, it’s more of a "Crash Bandicoot" wannabe title with poor controls that can be a major test in frustration.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    It attempts to focus on stealth, but fails. It features poor combat, and there are not any puzzles to speak of. The game lacks any significant focus, and as a result, lacks any specific strength. Of course, the god-awful controls didn't help either.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The terrible dialogue and silly horror aspects make the game feel much more like a modern ‘B’ horror story than a Hitchcock tale.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The environments are full of life.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The story mode follows the movie and offers some differing missions, but most of the action gets boring after a short time.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Offers a mixed bag of ingenious puzzles, open-ended gameplay, and horrible production values. Graphically, the game fails miserably representing a short game with mediocre play.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    I really don't understand why anyone would want to own this game unless they were a die hard fan of "Die Hard" (sorry).
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Examining Northland as a strategy game, it fails miserably with ridiculously tedious micromanagement gameplay that falls behind the times.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The fighting is slow and boring, with even slower controls, the graphics aren’t much, and the sound is just average.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It took me about ten hours to play all the way through this game, and if I had not been fighting the controls and camera, I would have finished in half the time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Starts off as a strong racing title, but begins to fall short with an unorthodox campaign system and poor sound track.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Graphics and sound quality were especially impressive, but its gameplay flaws destroyed any possible greatness it might have had.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It just got boring after a while. This game has some strong points, but it’s missing some essential depth in certain areas.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It just isn’t fun. It’s a classic case of a game trying to be all things to all people, but it lacks the wackiness of a game like "Mario Kart," the simulation accuracy of "Gran Turismo," and the polish of "SSX Tricky."
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Graphical scalability and an intuitive interface are heavily outweighed by poor graphics and sound, uninspired gameplay, and a lack of scientific information about the dinosaurs you are exploiting.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another average platformer in a genre waning in popularity.
