    A highly enjoyable game, however everyone's tastes differ, and many people may be turned off by the puzzle solving and want more action.

    Very fun, though still plays a lot like the first Spiderman game I played on PlayStation (which isn't a bad thing, but hoped for a somewhat different experience).

    Although a few downsides, it is pretty much a good platformer that fans of classic games and Kirby games will defiantly need to pick up.

    All in all, this is easily the best fighting game on the market along side "Vampire Chronicles."

    The graphics were great, the sound was good, and the gameplay was just addictive beyond belief.

    A refreshing change from the old 3D fighter molds we see a lot of today. The character's unbalanced strengths is definitely a weak point and can make this a frustrating game for some, so I give you that warning.

    Simply a great game.

    The lastability isn't extraordinary, but it is decent.

    The best multi-playerS game for parties, sleep over or a past of time for kiddies & young adults alike. Hudson Soft has taken the game boards of the family room table and crush it all into a game cartridge that is well worth the purchase.

    If you want an off-road experience without getting the keys of your truck taken away from you forever resulting in you having to drive the family vehicle, a mini-van, by all means purchase this game.

    The game may not be completely up to par with the competition in other areas, but the career mode is definitely the best to have.

    I highly recommend this game to anyone who has any interest in fighting games, especially those who were disappointed with "Tekken 4" or people who have a craving for the Mortal Kombat series.

    ICO
    Though the shortness of a game may sound like a flaw, it’s really not. In ICO’s case, a longer length would have made the game quite tiresome as puzzle solving & pulling the girl from he pits of hell could tend to get a bit repetitive.

    With the PS2 RPG release list suffering, Dark Cloud could easily be named the best offering in this genre to date.

    For those who are amateurs and have not played much of the Tiger Woods series you may find yourself frustrated at crucial times.

    Once you have a highly tuned car, the game becomes a lot more enjoyable as you now have a fair chance against the other cars. It will take a long time to get to that stage.

    A perfect example of how it SHOULD be done... somehow the full size game has been crammed into the impossibly tiny (they are small aren't they? geez!) GBA cart.

    The only thing about these simple controls is that the game’s response seems too sensitive to each use of the d-pad. Simple, and yet, they still have some gripes.

    Definitely good in the sound department as long as you don't mind that there is no music.

    Truly a game of patience.

    Once you get used to the unique style of play, it becomes second nature as any game does.
    • 92 Metascore

    The one drawback in my opinion would be the replay value, as many people would find it pointless to replay the entire game just for a few secrets, since the story is the main reason to play a game like this.

    Game mechanics may be tedious, but they are also very enjoyable nonetheless.

    And your cars? Well, eventually you'll get some nice ones. Just set aside a month.

    There's one disappointment - the lack of animation. You may see two or three birds way out flying, but closer surrounding area are completely static; trees leaves do not move, glowing electronic billboards don't animate, ocean water is stiff as stone, and there is no detectable change in weather condition....Still the overall package is very sweet.

    Like a "Battletanx" meets WWF type of game; instead of the whole game being based around a B-Movie type plot, the game is based around an intense post-apocalyptic battle tournament.

    A solid platformer, but also at the same time is somewhat generic.

    Its lastability is the only drawback of the title.

    If you ever wished you could use the Goldeneye sniper rifle in a more realistic context, this is your chance. It's also one of the best action-strategy games available on any system.

    It's great looking, amusing at times, and the Star Wars themes never gets old.
