    Sydney 2000 can't even compete against the equivalent Commodore 64 game that's well over a decade old.

    A real step backward for the Delta Force series.

    It's an unusual idea, and certainly an interesting one, but as you play, you'll find that Combat Medic probably wasn't the best idea for a game.

    Clearly one of the most flawed games of 2002. So flawed, in fact, that a 30MB patch has already been released, and another is on the way.

    When the game is over, which is very quickly, you'll hardly remember a thing about it.

    The only thing Breed has going for it is its wide variety of vehicles. But in a game with so many serious problems, it's hard to enjoy them for long.

    It's an idea that has been tried before and done better.
    • 55 Metascore

    It is by no means authoritative, and it certainly won't convince newbies that the sport makes a worthy computer game.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    This is one of the worst turn-based tactical games in quite a while, thanks to bad gameplay, horrendous storytelling, lackluster graphics, and more.

    Even by 2003 standards, Airborne Troops is an extremely uninspired shooter that borrows endlessly from other World War II games, yet still manages to get almost nothing right. Thus, by 2005 standards, Airborne Troops is a wholly poor effort.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    A disappointment from top to bottom. The soundalike song performances are sketchy, the entire gameplay and lyric display systems are deeply flawed, and the decision-making that went into the editing and censoring of the game's songs is totally scattershot.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    An uninspired and underdeveloped execution of a boilerplate game design. There are some frustrating portions, and the whole game feels rather drab, though for what it's worth, it's not broken.

    • 42 Critic Score
    Maelstrom can't even get the basics right, and the few features that sound interesting on paper end up being completely useless.
    • 65 Metascore

    Bankshot Billiards 2 doesn't play a great game of pool, and as the most expensive Xbox Live Arcade game available, it represents lousy value for the money.

    Sonic the Hedgehog may share its name with the Genesis original, but this game is even more broken than most of the other recent Sonic games have been.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Road to Respect shoehorns the Sopranos license into a clumsy, poorly designed action game that isn't the least bit enjoyable to play.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Konductra’s fussy design and minimal production values make playing it feel more like a job than a game.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Eragon relies entirely on tedious, unenthusiastic gameplay that's way too shallow to sustain interest for more than a few minutes.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Had the battle sequences not been so maddeningly frustrating and frequent, Evil Dead: Hail to the King would at least weigh in as a decent Resident Evil clone, but they work to make the game almost unplayable.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Simple and forgettable.
    • tbd Metascore

    It hasn't done anything to add to the game's fun factor or overall length. As such, most players will have their fill of Operation Armored Liberty in an hour or two.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    A mediocre platformer, and its racing aspects just make things worse.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    An uninspired and underdeveloped execution of a boilerplate game design. There are some frustrating portions, and the whole game feels rather drab, though for what it's worth, it's not broken.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Stays true to the roots of its license, but that doesn't make it a very interesting or entertaining game.
    • 56 Metascore

    Unlike EA's game, Street Hoops is shallow and incredibly dull.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    First-person shooters and real-time strategies are more at home on the PC because they require a mouse and keyboard to be enjoyed to their fullest extent, and Conflict Zone on the Dreamcast is a prime example of why this is the case.

    It's hard to recommend Death Crimson OX to anyone but the truly desperate light-gun fanatic.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The few improvements it includes do little to address the flaws of the original game, and since the new game is just more of the same endless waves of enemies, it can't really be recommended even to those who might have enjoyed Beach Head 2000 in some way.
    • 67 Metascore

    Many of the interesting concepts in T:A llose their appeal shortly after the umpteenth quest to help some tortured soul in town.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The game can be fun at first, but that fun quickly dissipates as the same basic formula is reapplied again and again, and you'll soon realize that if you've played the first level, you may as well have played the whole game.
