    Falls flat in just about every way a Corvette or racing fan enthusiast could hope it would succeed...it's difficult to recommend it to even the most devout Corvette enthusiasts.

    This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.

    The other serious problem with Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure is a holdover from the original: its horrible boss fights.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    It may well offer you the chance to take your favourite team through the qualifying stages and into the World Cup finals, but the game's poor animation and simple tactics make it a completely lackluster experience.

    "PGA European Tour" lacks the needed bells and whistles to get a good rating, while the game's tired, sparse graphics and gameplay glitches prevent it from breaking even.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    It's buggy, the gameplay modes are shallow, and the graphics don't save it.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Looks solid visually, but the game has lost some of its gameplay speed in the transition to Sony's 128-bit console.

    This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.

    While it can be fun at times, there are so many annoying gameplay issues that the overlying feeling of hindrance is difficult to shirk.
    • 54 Metascore

    A dull and largely forgettable experience, which, considering the quality of the previous three Digimon World games, really shouldn't be too big of a surprise to anyone.

    Flushed Away is a generic run-and-jump game that's hampered by technical problems.

    • 43 Critic Score
    The DS version of X-Men misuses its characters, controls poorly, and is otherwise utterly generic.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The racing is boring and way too easy, the physics are bouncy and unrealistic, the rubber-band artificial intelligence is ridiculous, and you can easily beat every race in the game in a couple hours.

    Say good-bye to the historical authenticity of Strongholds past and hello to one generic, seriously flawed fantasy RTS.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    This cheap PlayStation 2 port carries none of the punch that can be found in the tabletop game due to a positively antediluvian design that sees you running down an endless succession of corridors hunting for keys.

    Although it lets you wander around a game board and participate in various multiplayer challenges as your favorite Crash Bandicoot characters, the game ultimately crashes and burns because the majority of its minigames are lifeless and uninteresting.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Even if you forgive the flimsy story, cliché characters, and derivative gameplay, it's impossible to look past the myriad game-stopping bugs, frustrating glitches, and glaring technical problems that plague this game.

    This is an incredibly slapdash and barren game that has absolutely nothing to offer you beyond monotonous, almost-broken fighting mechanics, tiny environments, and a bunch of lame unlockables.

    Flushed Away is a generic run-and-jump game that's hampered by technical problems.

    This may please whatever contingency there is of fans who still keep up with Bandai's answer to Pokémon, but for everyone else this is just a slapdash action RPG that seems more intent on punishing players with clumsy, tedious gameplay than actually engaging, or maybe even entertaining, them.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    An absolute mess, crippled by a terrible control scheme and frustrating missions that wear on seemingly forever. And even with six editions of the series supplying the narrative, it's a waste of a great license, offering very little to anyone looking for a franchise fix.

    Doesn't possess anywhere near the level of polish or charm of its Genesis namesake.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    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.

    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.
    • 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.

    Konductra’s fussy design and minimal production values make playing it feel more like a job than a game.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    When the game is over, which is very quickly, you'll hardly remember a thing about it.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 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.
