    And really once you've been in two or three fights, you begin to simply say "ho-hum, now what"? You quickly get bored of things and start losing your concentration. By that time you also start losing interest in the game itself.

    The controls felt loose and sluggish, and so did the rest of the game.

    An excellent game for little kids but won’t provide much excitement for others. The gameplay is very simplified, and the action gets repetitive quickly.

    The camera in Astro Boy is absolutely inexcusable. Although you can manipulate the view using the L2 and R2 buttons (which you will be doing a lot), you find yourself looking straight into little Astro’s gigantic eyes again before you know it.

    It's all good until you actually have to start using your martial arts skills. Then it's a lesson in frustration.

    If any more Oddworld games are brought to the GBA, I really hope that they go back to the side-scrolling format. In fact, a direct port of the original Oddworld for Playstaion wouldn't be a bad idea, and would have surely come out better than this game did.

    I was really looking forward to this game, it is really a shame they didn’t fix the problems they should have during beta testing: control issues, AI problems, weapon balancing and character differentiations. Like I said, maybe they’ll get it right next time.

    It was fun at first, but got grindingly boring as I kept playing.

    This collection has more classic titles than many other collections I have seen, but more importantly, it has more good old school games than I have seen in any other game collection.

    The games biggest problem, as I have said before, is that it is coming into a market that is ridiculously over saturated with WWII and Vietnam shooters already, and it does not do enough to separate itself from the pack, so I have a feeling it will be doomed to slip by the wayside unnoticed by most.

    So here is the game in a nutshell. For 20 bucks you get a solid playing game that you basically could have had for the last 2 years. And if you're a Slugfest: Loaded player, there's simply no reason to even bother with Slugfest 2006.

    The moveset is extremely limited, the action can't be too fast-paced, and it's harder to battle in multi-player mode.

    The graphic engine and framerate really fail the gameplay engine, which had some very nice controller setup.

    Bottom line, this game is simply not worth taking the time to play.

    The slow single player mode along with unimpressive graphics, and a bad soundtrack really hurt this game. What helps it are the good online play, along with the easy controlls.

    This game is simply sub-par to it's Xbox counterpart, and for that matter the PS2 version as well.

    It’s a blood fest, plain and simple, if that’s what you want in your role-playing game go for it, if you are looking for depth, character development and dialog, well then look elsewhere.

    Frustrating controls and fighting engine, and really lackluster fun-factor keep this game on the store shelf.

    Just all over the board in terms of gameplay, graphics and sound. One minute you will enjoy it and the next you will be wondering what you miss because you are stuck and cant get to the next level.

    I think the ideas are there, and they are great. Unfortunately, the gameplay brought it down a few notches.

    The General Lee's controls are really rough. I don't think I have played a driving game that handles this poorly. It's so loose that sometimes it's outright hard to control.

    I seriously question the longevity of this title, even with multiplayer and a ton of unlockable stuff. I think this is a weekend rental for the most part.

    The first DoA Beach Volleyball game was actually a good volleyball game and the girls were built to look like realistically hot girls. This one has gone to just ludicrous looking girls with little else to offer in the game.
