    The game is extremely action-packed and intense, and has a nice new variety of weapons and vehicles that bring a nice rich depth that adds nicely to a very popular franchise.

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

    SNK/NeoGeo fans will certainly welcome it into their permanent game library, but others are liable to be quickly frustrated by the difficulty and continue system.

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

    Going into and out of some of WWII's most intense battles will keep you coming back for more. If you can get by the average graphics and a couple of A.I. wobbles you'll have a great time playing this game.
    • 62 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.

    Unless you have a Gamecube and are suffering Zelda withdrawal or loved "Sudeki" with a passion, try out the more serious 360 games out there first.

    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.

    Visually striking and full of atmosphere, it's a fun but altogether shallow experience that you have probably played a hundred times before. But the lack of originality may be compensated by the license for fans.

    For those of you that are die-hard NASCAR fans, you’ll have to pick this up for the updated (but slightly out of date) roster, and the new features put in are decent.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.

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

    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.

    The game’s audio, variety of weapons and moves keeps you interested for a while, but the game isn’t that long and is very repetitive, which certainly kills any buzz you originally had.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Simple and fun action.

    For gamers hoping for a deeper, more unique game play use of EyeToy’s capabilities, this ain’t it.
    • 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.

    If you are looking for the next Grand Theft Auto for PSP, this is not it. The main story mode falls short and fails to deliver, but the additional modes add a lot of content and provides you with something to do, no matter your mood or amount of time available.

    A good weekend rental for kids who liked the Shrek movies, but a poor purchase unless you have several young’n’s who game together. It captures the movie’s attitude and charm well enough, but glosses over too much of its game play potential.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely worth a look, but gets a bit repetitive with the actual gameplay.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.

    Not what I would expect for the 360, but a good game nonetheless.
