    The action is fun, if a bit monotonous when it comes to combat and linear throughout.

    It seems little effort was made to make full use of what the Xbox is good at. In fact, you'll notice jaggies, lots of clipping, mild pop-up in some locations and a lot of slowdown in the Glitter Oasis level.

    One of the biggest complaints I have about the game is that very little of the gameplay is explained or even given much in the way of reason. You seem to just be doing stuff to keep from being bored to death.

    I understand the need to simplify things for use on the GBA, but even the fact that all the spells use the same art seems a bit disappointing. With that said, though, the graphics do what they should - carry the solid gameplay through.

    The biggest complaint I have with the controls is that the button responses seem to lag at times, especially during the boss fights, where hitting the button to charge an arrow may not work right away, costing you precious seconds.

    It seems to lack the personality that the first had. Is it a good action title? Yes. With multiple difficulty modes, two characters to play as and secret rooms to find, dedicated action buffs should have a good time with this sequel.

    Advent Rising certainly could have used a lot more work. If you're a sci-fi themed shooter fan, you can find this one for a decent price. You have to be pretty forgiving as there's a lot here that could use some polish.

    It's hard to find a Dragon Ball Z game that's fun, fast, and enjoyable. DBZ nuts should savor this one. For every one else - it's a solid rental at best.

    While this is technically a simulation, I still wish there was some car damage and the effects of said damage to reinforce not using other cars and rails to bounce your way through certain corners.

    Ghost in the Shell only works when it comes to the voicecast, which is pulled straight from the show's voicecast.

    Vastly better than "Superman 64," but it's still only mediocre in a genre of games that still struggle to be good games while recapturing their subject matter well.

    For those who want a cheap horror fix for a weekend, Obscure is sure to fit the bill. Just don't expect anything outstanding and you might just enjoy yourself.

    If you have some patience, then by all means get it. There's a lot to be enjoyed here if you can just endure the dragging pace of the story. If you're looking for faster action, then you may get bored with this one a bit too quickly.

    While I get the feeling that this game proves to be a sloppy port, it is still a good game at heart and has a wonderful timepiece story that fans of the genre will enjoy.

    Let's not kid ourselves - where Chaos Legion fails in becoming a top tier title like "Devil May Cry" is that it's extremely repetitive. Seig doesn't have a lot of moves, so expect to do the same combat actions over and over again.

    A lot better then the first "Survivor," but a lot more still needs to be done. There needs to be more story for one. Also, the length needs to be increased along with the difficulty.

    While I wished they had done a little more to push the story graphically, the challenge and solid 2D action were enough to keep me going.

    If you're looking for a good strategy RPG, skip this title as the linear path the game takes and the none-too-deep gameplay will pretty much bore you to tears.

    The music in the game is a mess, the vast majority of the game is eerily silent, with occasional ambient music. When you encounter a boss fight or hairy situation however, blaring nu-metal blasts repeatedly then instantly stops when the fight is over.

    Thankfully, the physics and handling are dead-on and really take some effort to learn well if you want to succeed.

    All the Simpsons characters and environments are lovingly and faithfully recreated, replete with references to specific events in episodes.

    Single player matches can be fun, except when getting into multi-opponent matches, where the computer decides that you're always the odd-man out. You'll be screaming for blood when it's you versus three opponents.

    Those expecting an action adventure game will be severely disappointed, however if you are looking for a great old school shooter in the vain of "Space Invaders," "Ikaruga" or "Raystorm," then P.N.03 is well worth buying.

    If you want to fly high above and put yourself into unique and highly intense battles that are actually fun, go try "Sky Gunner" or "Panzer Dragoon Orta." In the meantime, you can probably look at this title and see how not to make a good game.

    It’s as if the guys at Outrage struck upon innovative gameplay ideas but they just couldn’t mould a good game around them.
    • 62 Metascore

    Linear, and excessively so. Levels are placed before you with a "get from point A to point B" mentality, with next to no options in how you get there.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Those looking for some co-op action might want to give it a whirl as well, but don't expect this title to be as deep as some of the more high-end games offered in the past year.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    With lengthy load times, rare slowdown, the occasional clipping problem and an imperfect graphics engine, the basic "corridor shooter" feel of the single player mode can be bogged down and even become tedious to some.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Just feels like it needs something more. What the game gives you in terms of abilities is a great start but after a while may leaving you wanting more.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Even if the game had been optimized more and some of the mechanics streamlined, this game would be a hard sell for most gamers. But, for those looking for a deep and challenging strategy title, Generation of Chaos will fit the bill.
