    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."

    Suffers from drab graphics, boring and simplistic level design, repetitiveness, underwhelming sound effects, and poor enemy AI.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Another average platformer in a genre waning in popularity.

    Fans of third-person action games will find the gameplay in Van Helsing satisfactory with several hours of enjoyment but beyond the fact you get to fight movie monsters from the past, the game just falls short with lack luster environments and limited gameplay.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Graphics and sound quality were especially impressive, but its gameplay flaws destroyed any possible greatness it might have had.
    • 63 Metascore

    A decent RPG for the young crowd, so if you own a Gamecube and want to introduce your little ones to the role playing genre, its a good place to start.

    No fun. For one, its concept is utterly ridiculous and it might more exciting to collect bugs than to play as one. Secondly, the gameplay is very tedious and is not fun at all because of the grid-like pattern the stages are arranged in.

    Replay value of Scream Arena is low due to its repetitive, yet enjoyable, gameplay.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    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    With outdated graphics that showcase choppy animations and low-resolution textures, and below average audio, plagued by horrible voice acting, the game’s presentation fails.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

    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.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 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.

    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.
