    Unless you hate life, avoid this. [Apr 2003, p.72]

    Having every move consume HP is somewhat unbalancing when enemies already do so much damage, and the reworked HP/LP setup can be bafflingly random. [July 2003, p.72]

    A plodding pace serves to slow down the showdown - something as simple as escaping from a steel cage is an extended, boring affair. [Sept 2004, p.81]

    Even if players know a song front to back, the pace is awkward and destroys a sense of rhythm. [Dec 2004, p.104]

    As a trivia contest, The Guy Game is merely average. As social commentary, we weep for the future.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While this may at first seem like a great way to pit all of Capcom's best fighters against each other, in reality it makes for an unbalanced mess. [Jan 2005, p.102]

    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Actually manages to make use of the touch screen in an interesting, though not vital, manner. It's too bad that the rest of the game is awful. [Feb 2005, p.111]

    This game is a big, fat whoopie cushion waiting to be sat on. [Apr 2003, p.73]
    • GMR Magazine
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's one of those games that nobody really asked for, so that leaves only one group of people who will be buying Starsky and Hutch: suckers. [Nov 2003, p.88]

    Nothing more than a crappy checkpoint racer. [Sept 2003, p.69]

    Armageddon, real or video style, should not be this uninspired. [Jan 2004, p.91]
    • GMR Magazine
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A delicate blend of "You Don't Know Jack," "Girls Gone Wild," and repeatedly smashing your head against a concrete wall. [Oct 2004, p.116]

    If you play only one game set in Middle-earth this year, don't make it this one.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Incredibly dull and uninspired, full of weird A.I. behaviors, bad graphics, and crushingly boring ennvironments. [May 2003, p.72]
    • GMR Magazine
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    All would be forgivable if the core gameplay were decent, but it sadly consists of pressing one button over and over again. There's absolutely no sense of rhythm, and results seem arbitrary at best.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    This game is so bad that it's insulting to both the talent behind it and the poor bastards who'll end up playing it. [May 2004, p.87]
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Something this bad defies description. [Sept 2004, p.95]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    An affront to Mega Man fans, card-battle enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere. [June 2004, p.83]
    • GMR Magazine
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The popular Japanese anime gets butchered here, and the in-game characters seem to have been modeled after the developers' nose goblins. [Mar 2004, p.93]
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Eight-bit "Double Dragon" was more fun and more complex than this ostensibly 32-bit outing. What are they doing with all those bits, anyway? [Dec 2003, p.104]

    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Kids will quickly tire of the slow pace, and adults will just hate the mindlessness of it all. [Dec 2003, p.87]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Then there's the weak, arbitrary enemy A.I., the impenetrable interface, and the absurdly incomplete documentation. [June 2003, p.70]

    • 50 Metascore

    Including a coin-op arcade game called "Fag Hunter" in the game world is not only not funny, it's disgusting and hateful. [July 2003, p.73]

    It may go down in history as the least necessary game of all time. [Feb 2005, p.113]
