    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.

    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

    Experienced and discerning gamers, however, would do well to steer clear of BLSC, as the game is simplistic and light.

    • 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.

    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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Not a good game. It takes the primary elements of the Pern novels and uses them to fashion a run-of-the-mill adventure game that offers very little actual adventure and too many frustrating mechanical issues.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    There are bits and pieces of Eureka Seven that come across as legitimate fan service, but the game is so wildly uneven and devoid of decent gameplay that only the most forgiving fans will be able to tolerate it.

    A clunky bargain-bin racer that simply doesn't do enough to keep you engaged, no matter your level of motocross enthusiasm.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Little more than a 3D version of the arcade classic "Ironman Ivan Stewart's Super Off-Road," without the fun.

    • 49 Critic Score
    From its bland, generic premise to its one-note gameplay, WinBack 2 does nothing that another third-person shooter hasn't already done better.

    SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters DS is an often entertaining game, which makes its shoddy production and localization especially disappointing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    RtCW has always been a pretty uninteresting single-player game, and without solid multiplayer to cushion the blow, the PlayStation 2 version of the game is a real failure.

    For a game whose main gameplay component is building up your characters, Digimon World 3 makes the process needlessly complicated and annoying.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Playing now will give you a sampling of the game's potential, but unless you are incredibly patient, can tolerate constant lag and design changes, and you have the time to devote considerable attention to your characters, chances are you will simply find Ultima Online extremely frustrating...In its current form, Ultima Online is a major disappointment.

    Pteredon's seminal Vietnam War-themed first-person shooter has been thoroughly retooled by a different design team. Though a few of the changes are constructive, the new developer, Coyote, has generally made a mess of what used to be a good game.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Problematic gameplay and run-of-the-mill presentation.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The game's graphics are uninspired and the sound is awful, and those elements in the gameplay that are subtly different from those in other real-time strategy games won't be noticeable to any but the most experienced real-time strategy players.

    It's disappointing to see a franchise that had so much promise fall flat, but 4x4 EVO 2's poor track design, uninspired graphics, and shallow racing keep it from reaching the status of its predecessors.

    While this version does have a small number of new tracks and trucks, as well as a handful of sundry tweaks, it also has the same unimpressive graphics and inconsistent physics of its Xbox counterpart.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    So unpolished that it's far more of a chore than a pleasure to play.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    But with so many major flaws, any of the game's strengths are hard to find and appreciate for any length of time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    While the game does a lot of things right, severe graphical issues surface at almost every turn and essentially nullify its strong points, leaving behind a game with lots of untapped potential.
    • 53 Metascore

    Not only is Alida built around one of the most tired clichés in the adventure genre (the deserted island filled with Rube Goldberg machines), but also Alida's game engine is woefully dated to boot.
    • 50 Metascore

    Of all the T3 games released this year, Rise of the Machines for the GBA is easily the best one; but once you get beyond comparisons to the rest of the motley Terminator 3 bunch, the game doesn't hold up on its own merits.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    This third-person action game might sound like a great idea if you're a fan of 50, Yayo, Buck, and Banks, but with its poor gameplay and worse attention to the G-Unit license, Bulletproof disappoints on all fronts.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The visual performance is poor, the puzzles are drab, and the story mode is laughably lame.
