    A cheery-looking game world but lousy, sleep-inducing gameplay.
    • 62 Metascore

    The game's more successful at being "Virtua Barbie" for the urbanite than playing a mean game of basketball.

    Somewhere inside Nexagon: Deathmatch, there's an interesting concept trying to get out, but the arena combat, base building, and futuristic sports theme never gel. The lack of clear instruction, the fun-killing load times, frequently lame combat, and some bugs and pathfinding problems don't do the game any favors.

    Isn't worth the cost of an Extra Value Meal, let alone two.

    Mildly entertaining for as long as it will take you to win it, and you will win it, because unlimited lives and forgiving checkpoints make this something you can do all on a Sunday afternoon.

    A barely playable disappointment that'll spend less time in the hands of gamers than it will in the hands of the lawyers representing Lady Miss Kier.

    If you're a Disney fan, you'll be disappointed by the lack of any real Disney-ness to the game. Other than the grainy images of Mickey and crew, you get no sense of the characters' personalities, voices, or quirks. If you're a racing fan, the game's dreadful camera takes away any potential for high-speed fun and action.

    Sure the graphics are fabulous, but the gameplay, sound effects, replay value, level design, and camera system are so poor that few people will find this game fun.
    • 46 Metascore

    Commits the worst possible crime: it's simply no fun to play.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Horrid control combined with a poor interface leaves Combat Medic gasping for air on the battlefield.

    Is Tsunami 2265 totally devoid of value? Not completely, but it's close.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Just a third-person action game with a respectable storyline and an interesting soundtrack paired with gameplay that simply can't deliver the goods.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Although it had some great ideas (the RTS elements) and a cool storyline, the actual execution of the gameplay is mediocre.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A textbook case of the gameplay taking a backseat to the graphics... Auto Modellista's biggest problem is still the poor control.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Infinite lives can't make up for gameplay that rivals NES games for cheap deaths, many of which are caused by shoddy controls. RTX Red Rock is an experience in pain.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Couple the control and camera issues with the bland and slapped-together feel of the graphics, the glitchy control scheme, and a protagonist who does nothing for long stretches of time and then runs from danger, and it's hard to come up with a single reason (other than the big Lord of the Rings logo on the box) why anyone would want to purchase this game.

    If special effects trump all the complaints in this review, well, go ahead and enjoy, just keep the receipt around for when the novelty starts to fade.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    There isn't a single original or inspired moment in any of the game's 16 levels...The level design is so pathetic that the game first recycles a background tile set from Level 1 in Level 3!
    • 46 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    If you're looking for depth or a realistic simulation, look elsewhere. If you're looking for tense, adrenaline-pumping arcade action, you'll probably want to look elsewhere too. It's true that you might find simple glee as you blaze away with your bomber's heavy machine guns, but that wears thin in a hurry.

    Fails to deliver in almost every category. Nicely rendered monster trucks and official licenses hardly mask the disastrous elements that ravenously eat away at this game's soul.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    It’s also not an overly difficult game, nor an overly long game, nor an overly attractive game, nor an overly fun game.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Once again the problem is one of controls, perspective, and a complete lack of freedom.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The embodiment of third-rate gameplay.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    The worst thing, though, is the fact that once you've built the airport, the game is essentially over.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    The problem with the single-player experience is that the AI is horrible in two major ways.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The game isn't a complete donkey, but it's painfully undernourished in the fun department. A real Mickey Mouse game, to be sure.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Of the three versions, the GameCube release of X-Men: Next Dimension is the best -- strictly in a relative sense, of course.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With its silly premise, repetitive gameplay and graphics fit for the PSone, Evolution Snowboarding decends like an avalanche from the highest crest to the lowest valley.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Un-inspiring characters fighting un-inspired battles to get to un-inspired cutscenes just makes for a boring, tedious disc. If you hate RPGs there will be nothing in this game to change your mind.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Another annoying aspect of TMNT is its overly punishing difficulty. While you can coast through early portions by mashing away, later stages and boss fights can be stupid-hard.
