    Despite a moderately intriguing story, the game suffers from jarring controls and a clunky combat interface. While the visuals are generally good, the audio is lacking for a survival-horror game and a few glitches prevent a truly enjoyable experience.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The gameplay is repetitive and not very engaging on any level. The graphics are just plain ugly and the voice acting is laughably bad.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Its main flaw is a lack of depth, whether it be in the graphics department, menu options or gameplay itself. What little strategy The Third wave involves is mostly geared towards stumping the clumsy AI.

    xXx
    One major flaw in the game’s level design, is how not one of the levels seems to have anything to do with the movie.

    While the game is graphically impressive, and it has very tight controls, it's just no fun. Lara has been reduced to a simpleton, and so has her game.

    One of the major problems with the game is the maps all look very similar. This causes another problem, which way do you go? I found myself getting lost a number of times just to have to run around to get back to where I needed to be.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The graphics are simply poor. The sound is painful to the ears at time, although it stuck very close to the original game.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It is worth a rental for the interesting four-player battle mode, but this one interesting feature cannot save a game that is lacking in so many other areas.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 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    The graphics are somewhat outdated for being on the PlayStation 2 and unfortunately the gameplay lacks as well.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
    • 38 Critic Score
    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.
    • 24 Metascore

    "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.
