    At 800 gamer points ($10.00) the game is way overpriced for its few fleeting moments of fun.

    2D fighting games are struggling to stay alive in an ever-growing industry, and developers need to really pull out all the stops to wow us. Unfortunately, Chaos feels too much like the same old thing.

    You might find a few minutes of amusement playing against your friends but why bother? There are a lot better games out there.

    By charging above the bargain price-point, this game should've done more.

    Although Nintendo and Paon must be applauded for trying to do something innovative, a racer like this simply does not work with a rhythm based control scheme. Those Wii owners looking for a quality racing title would be better off waiting until next year for Mario Kart Wii.

    There's much more worth mentioning here - the lobotomized AI, the nonexistent collision detection, the bare-minimum sound design, and cliché characterizations - that make Alpha Protocol feel like a four-year old game.

    Fan boys will get they’re fix, and that’s about the extent of FBM’s scope, providing little to none entertainment value past the first 30 minutes.

    It’s just broken. It’s so broken in fact that one wonders if they weren’t trying to intentionally botch the game- it’s just that bad.

    There are the seeds of a good Family Guy-based game here, but they're buried under some extremely repetitive and annoying gameplay.

    Twin stick shooter fans have many other places to look to get their fix on the XBLA and almost all of them would be a better choice than 0 Day.

    This downloadable reincarnation could've introduced Maverick to a new generation of flight combat fans who haven't seen the film. With lackluster campaign missions, empty-looking levels and awkward dialogue between every other character but your own, this is almost guaranteed to not happen.

    Calling this game a nice $30.00 coaster would be a compliment, as it would mean that you’d actually have to go into a store and buy it. Instead, avoid it like the plague and hope that it gets buried somewhere in a New Mexican Desert.

    There are a lot better stealth games out there so there is no reason to waste your time and money on this mess.

    Legendary could have been and should have been so much more; especially with it's awesome premise. Instead, we're stuck with a game that feels like it's more set-up for a sequel than as a standalone game.

    The game looks ugly, the controls are poorly done, and the storyline gets dull in a hurry. There is some decent action here and there, but quite frankly the game is so bad it smells worse then bad weed.

    Sparse level designs and first-generation-like PS2 graphics are combined with unintelligent and unoriginal gameplay for the most corrupt television-to-game package in a long time.

    Simply put, there are a lot better bike and extreme sports games out there.

    Battle royale effectively spruces up an otherwise dull game, but even this mode isn’t an ultimate savior.

    It's El Stinko for this title, folks. Unless you're some diehard fan of ICP (or Tera Patrick, maybe?), you should steer clear of this at all costs.

    Having a platformer that punishes players for missing jumps would be fine if determining where a jump begins is clear or even grappling areas, but that's not the case here. Couple that with the combat system that has frequent problems registering hits and you have one frustrating to play game.

    EA Games screwed up the controls so bad that's it hard not to miss that important jump, and that means you have to go through some overly tedious levels all over again. The bottom-line is that the gameplay is so horrible here that I think nobody will cry if this cat gets run over by a car.

    Strike one: Piss poor gameplay. Strike two: Abominable graphics and sound quality. Strike three: A plot so thin, it would have no bearing even to collective fans of the anime.

    From its recycled characters at each port to its recycled gameplay every couple of minutes, I’d suggest you read a book about the Civil War rather play this game.

    Bomberman: Act Zero is Hudson Soft’s attempt to try something new and having it blow up in its face as if the company just laid down a bomb and became trapped in between boxes.

    CSI is so boring that it almost makes you want to kill yourself so you can be just like the dead bodies in the game.

    Digital Leisures should be ashamed of themselves for releasing such a pile of crap.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    But with boring gameplay and dated graphics, nothing's worth fighting for in this budget-like game at a non-budget $40 price. It’s not even worth the quarter it costs in arcades.
