    NBA 07 on the PlayStation 3 doesn't have the entertaining story mode that the PlayStation 2 version has, but it does have most of that version's flaws, and some new ones, too.

    Unless you're a rabid fan who simply has to be in contact with all things Futurama, this game is playable enough to warrant a rental but little else.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The gameplay will have you shaking your head in disbelief and disgust as you encounter one badly designed puzzle, maze, or action sequence after another.

    Like a one million-horsepower sucker punch to the good feelings we've all suddenly developed toward Astro Boy games, however, the second release, Sonic Team's Astro Boy: No Subtitle, turns out to pretty much stink.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    This excitement always quickly fades, leaving you with a game with unresponsive controls and lackluster action.
    • 56 Metascore

    It's not a stunningly accurate sim, it doesn't provide the sort of overview of Mercedes-Benz cars that you'd expect, and its graphical presentation has more than a few flaws.

    Even if he had brought home the gold, it wouldn't have changed the fact that his skiing game is a shallow cash-in on athletic idolatry.

    • 49 Critic Score
    It disregards almost everything about Vikings that make them interesting. Its graphics are some of the worst on the PS2, the gameplay is dull and repetitive, and its uninspired multiplayer mode adds little value.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Ninjas, ninjas, and more ninjas can't save the technically flawed, uninspired Tenchu Z.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    A clunky bargain-bin racer that simply doesn't do enough to keep you engaged, no matter your level of motocross enthusiasm.

    Mind Quiz is a shameless rip-off of Nintendo's "Brain Age," only Ubisoft and Sega forgot to clone the variety and occasional fun of that game.
    • 47 Metascore

    Imprecise controls, shoddy level design, and bland characters spell doom for Death Jr.'s latest adventure.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Those looking for the Frogger they grew up with should probably look somewhere else.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    A Bomberman game without multiplayer is hardly a Bomberman game at all.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    An obvious attempt to cash in on the street racing craze by providing bargain-basement production values, unlicensed cars, and about as much excitement as a half-lit sparkler.

    From its bland, generic premise to its one-note gameplay, WinBack 2 does nothing that another third-person shooter hasn't already done better.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The screen size and button layout of the GBA prove to be limitations that this otherwise respectable port of SimCity 2000 cannot overcome.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    For Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, the meager options make it less attractive than one of Konami's dozen or so other, more fully featured Yu-Gi-Oh! games, and to players who don't already have an investment in the series, it has about as much to offer as a game of solitaire.
    • 69 Metascore

    The quick-and-dirty port does everything the DC and PS2 releases did--meaning it looks good for a Dreamcast game but pretty awful when compared with anything else released on the GameCube so far.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The game literally has so many flaws that it is impossible to mention them all in a single review.

    While Breakout is a fine starter game for young kids attempting to get a handle on their hand-eye coordination, all others might want to pass on this one.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Unless you're a rabid fan who simply has to be in contact with all things Futurama, this game is playable enough to warrant a rental but little else.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It's just too bad this solid gameplay engine is wrapped in such a shallow, ugly package.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Boasting nothing resembling extraordinary gameplay, it serves, rather, as a vehicle for the license.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Experienced and discerning gamers, however, would do well to steer clear of BLSC, as the game is simplistic and light.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    An experience that is absolutely marred by several problems working in conjunction with each other. It's just not a very fun game to play.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The updates really don’t do anything to improve the gameplay and in some cases actually detract from it.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The mobility of a box of trivia cards beats huddling around the TV nine times out of 10.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    There's little reward for all the indirect management you have to deal with, and the terrible interface sabotages the whole affair.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The poor AI and the limitations presented by the sole Ford license in particular keep it from being a truly entertaining game overall.
