    BMX isn't a bad game, it just doesn't do anything fresh to get a jaded player excited.

    A stress buster with mindless fun.

    You will be subject to gruelingly slow frame rates. I will not hesitate to drop you below 20 frames per second. I will blur the graphics until your eyes hurt. You will play bland level after bland level without so much as a whimper.

    Not only does it look gorgeous, but it does a remarkable job of bringing the surfing experience home. Unfortunately, it also brings the frustration and lack of variety that straight surfing brings, which leads to its inevitable failure in the fun category.

    The poorest excuse for a hockey game ever created. Not even the nice-looking player models can save this game from the recycle bin.

    More of a rental than a purchase, unless you're a huge football fanatic who requires every pigskin video game.

    The biggest problem area in Mike Tyson Boxing is the controls. They're not completely unresponsive, but there is a definite delay that affects the overall gameplay and fluidity of the game.

    More than likely to go the way of it's real-life ancestors -- except that no one's going to be looking for it so much as six weeks from now, much less a billion years.

    The control is a little clumsy, and there are a few bugs that'll drive you to drink.

    In and out of the ring, this product's nothing more than a jobber staring down the most brutal tag team ever to represent the "sport": "WWF Wrestlemania 2000" and "WWF Royal Rumble."

    Oh, I forgot to mention the horribly painful control and the truly pathetic graphics. Yep, definitely a Cruis'n title.

    Cloggy, rutty, a little bit old, and just a little too safe -- precisely the sensations one is trying to avoid with a game based on motocross.

    If you're desperately searching for a good motorcycle racing title, dust off the old Genesis and plug in "Road Rash." At least you'll have some fun with that.

    The graphics may be lackluster, but the music is worse.

    To clarify, it's your typical boy-meets-scrap-parts-that-will-eventually-become-a-killing-machine tale, minus any compelling death scenes or token nudity shots.

    It's a shame that the developers didn't polish "Rally Challenge 2000" a bit before they sent it out the door, because it has a really cool racing engine at its core.

    In an attempt to please everyone, the game's standard may be that of the lowest common denominator. At least the book is included in the package.

    If you haven't seen the game, prepare to witness some of the weakest graphics this side of the millenium. The 3D characters are nothing but big blocks of pixel.

    A singularly unpleasant experience. The AI is unremarkable, as is the series of challenges and tests you must go through to unlock all the vehicles and tracks.

    Horrible control, lousy graphics, and a migraine-inducing frame rate all add up to one of the worst games on the market. If you want skateboarding action, just stick to Tony Hawk.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One of the deepest games ever created. Too bad all the time spent with the options couldn't have been devoted to gameplay instead.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    When reviewing a game, I usually try to emphasize at least a few good points along with the bad, but in this case, I can honestly say that this game truly sucks.

    Maybe there are fans of the movie who would have their interests piqued by this title, but those fans should do themselves a favor and buy The Road to El Dorado coloring or sticker books. They would be just as fun and as interactive as the game.

    Falls into the same category as the Double Filet-O-Fish--while it may seem like an extraordinary idea at first, it eventually morphs into a complete catastrophe.

    Quite simply the worst game of hoops I've every played.

    The Hector "Macho" Camacho of boxing games: lots of style and flash, but no punching power.

    Fans of the cartoon obviously aren't sick of the Batman premise, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to tolerate this game.
