    An all around mess of a game, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing is officially one of (if not THE) worst examples of digital boxing we've ever seen.

    It's a repulsive cocktail of inconvenience, design missteps and frustration that fails to entertain on any level. Quite simply, if you buy this game, you are wasting your money.

    I think that there's just too much to this game to be ported to the PlayStation with it's limited memory, and the design team didn't seem to cut corners in the right places.

    It's a totally weak rally game through and through, with bad control, no real sense of rally driving (unless you like to feel completely out of control).
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The game suffers from an excess of slowdown, doesn't move nearly as fast as the 32-bit version, and simply lacks any of the addictive qualities that made it so enjoyable on PlayStation.

    Like everybody in the office has said to me at one point while I was playing Godai, "I wish this game would Go Die!"

    Not fun, and not funny. Thus, this game fails on both levels.

    There are so many better options available in the "tycoon" genre, and this latest incarnation is an abomination to all that is holy and sacred. Stay far, far away.

    Do not purchase Evil Prophecy. Do not rent it. Avert your eyes should it be demonstrated near you. And, if ever you meet a suicidal man, direct him to this article and assure him that things can always be worse.

    What seems like an ambitious design turns out to be overly complicated, completely frustrating and totally confusing. Racing dragons sounds like a cool concept, but Dragon Booster doesn't end up anywhere near a cool DS game.
    • 35 Metascore

    It is simply no fun to explore, painful to play, and lacking of everything that makes strategy titles entertaining and addictive.

    I fail to see how a title with practically no gameplay value and a wealth of poorly edited animated clips and computer generated cutscenes can pass as a worthwhile videogame. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED: Never Ending Tomorrow is terrible.
    • 41 Metascore

    Holy hell, this game is terrible. At best.
    • 35 Metascore

    The gameplay is amazingly terrible, the audio and visual production is a joke, and the actual act of fishing won’t hold up against Radica’s Bass Fishin’ games, much less any actual DS or GBA cart.

    A classic arcade game is absolutely destroyed by horrendously clunky and totally unnecessary touch screen controls, and no amount of Pokemon-style collection can save it.
    • 43 Metascore

    If it’s about delivering a quality gaming experience to the younger crowd, however, the series has again missed the mark. Being a children’s product is no justification for sub-par quality.

    The DS version is simply a two-screen edition of the absolutely atrocious Game Boy Advance version released last year, and other than the addition of two player support, there's nothing new. And nothing's improved.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    There’s simply no getting around it; Legend of the Dragon is a sub-par effort, and should be avoided at all costs.

    Bore fest.

    It's certainly not worth 30 dollars, as its control, graphics, sound and any other aspect you can name are all found lacking.
    • tbd Metascore

    This is just a terrible game, and Jonathan Farrell needs to find himself a better job.
    • 46 Metascore

    Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong.

    M&M's Kart Racing is particularly poor, and, sadly, is actually not as appealing a product as Data Design Interactive's "Myth Makers: Super Kart GP." At least that game has items, shortcuts and four-player support, even if it is plagued by its own set of problems.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The gameplay comes across as messy and incomplete, the arrangement of hazards and threats from monsters is ineffective at best and boring at worst.

    Even the superior mouse and keyboard configuration can't overcome the technical issues. If you need a shooter, look elsewhere, because Legendary isn't close to what its namesake claims to be.

    • 25 Critic Score
    An undeniably bad product and not worth your consideration at all.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    A true cash-in project that ignores some of the great control fundamentals laid down with Nintendo's game for an unintelligent waggle-and-win design.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The gameplay isn't fun, the levels are too long, the sound is bad, and the story isn't interesting. There are more problems, but I'll leave my written flogging at that. Avoid this game at all costs.
