    A poor excuse for a game. Whatever made the Insomniac-developed Spyro titles so great obviously has vanished from the game's inner fray forever.

    It feels rushed in so many aspects, and has virtually no replay value. What few positives the game does have are easily overshadowed by all that went wrong.

    One smart idea Activision/Creat Studios did was making this game simple enough for anyone to pick up and play, even if the controls don't handle too well at times.

    In the ranks of Xbox wrestling games, let alone all-time wrestling games, this one ranks quite low, mainly because of its poor execution and obvious lack of polish.

    Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days has no redeeming qualities and isn't even worth a rental, unless you were into the first game and want to see where the story has progressed. Really, though, even then, there is not enough in here to warrant paying $60, or even $40.

    Appropriately, during the ending credits John Lee Hooker sings, "Lord have mercy, don't let me go to Vietnam." Gee, I guess he must have played this game too.

    What you have here is a competent, playable, fun football game pretty much ruined by game-killing bugs, freezes, flaws, and debacles.

    There is certainly enough content here, but the poor controls and graphics don't give players any incentive to check it out.

    The arcade business is on life support along with the light gun shooters that were once a prominent arcade attraction, so you probably have lots of quarters stacked up these days. But, don’t cash them in for Time Crisis 4 at full price.

    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.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 37 Critic Score
    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.
