    A superb title, a lot of hard work has gone into this one and it shows, cinematic, challenging, absorbing and great fun.

    Good varied tournaments, and its fun to see the pros in the game.

    Strongly recommend a rent for the kids, a buy for kids that loved the movie.

    The innumerable customization options are enjoyable enough, but the overly difficult game play and poor controls keep the game from being much fun for casual mech fans or anyone new to the series.

    For those of you that are die-hard NASCAR fans, you’ll have to pick this up for the updated (but slightly out of date) roster, and the new features put in are decent. However, if you’re looking for a ground-breaking NASCAR title, you’ll probably be disappointed with this release.

    A decent game that's best played in the story "Life" mode.

    This leaves Nightshade’s appeal divided pretty evenly between those who will play at it, improve, and get better, and those who will quickly dismiss it as too hard. For those who stick with it to get high ratings in the stages, there’s a lot of value.

    The varied monsters made a nice gamepaly experience, as well as the variety of skills that the various heroes can perform.

    Great storyline, great originality, great sound.

    The PC highlights include the multiplayer version (which is definitely a lot of fun) and the much-much-much improved graphics (of course, you got to have the right tools for the job).

    A fun adventure title that gamers will enjoy. It's a nice, straight forward game that has some good graphics and cut scenes from the movie.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A solid title whose best features include the humor, story, and amount of modes the game offers.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Simple and fun action.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A slight update to an already classic game that doesn’t make you forget about the original.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The design team did a good job in offering multiple campaigns, scenarios, skirmishes, and the board-game option.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It can provide some fun, especially its two-player cooperative mode, but it lacks the options and polish of the other action RPGs available.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    A pretty decent game that isn't anything spectacular, but for fans of the movie and people that enjoy bash-em shoot-em type of games involving multiple players will definitely enjoy the game.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A decent game that's best played in the story "Life" mode.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The controls were too loose for a game like this.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Good graphics, fun in-game play, good mini-games, not a whole lot of depth with season mode.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The gameplay is not meant for people looking for a realistic racing simulator, but rather the newbie looking for something fun and simple to get rolling with.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The graphics are absolutely stunning and the characters are well designed.

    This was a decent title, and comes highly recommended for kids who love to play with the dance mat.

    A lot of games these days rely on ridiculous move combinations to advance levels, or increased difficulty means that your enemy has more health and you deal less damage. DW5E actually keeps it real by making the difficulty based on skill more than the other cheap tricks developers are using these days, and the AI is first class.

    Definitely worth a look, but gets a bit repetitive with the actual gameplay.

    More mature gamers will find themselves a little underwhelmed, but on its own it's a nice looking, nice sounding, and fairly fun title.

    Easily the most impressive feature of the graphics is the level of detail with the fluid motion with all the characters in the game. It's almost a combination of 2D characters running around in a 3D world, but there's no denying that the graphics are amongst the best on hand-held devices at this time.

    The perfect game of the sexually repressed immature male in your life ... and in other words, I thought it was pretty darn funny.
