    Just because its targeted at youngsters doesn’t mean it has to be terrible.

    Even with my enjoyment of the movie, the game just didn't do anything for me. I was having so much fun playing "Burnout" and Italian Job just seemed to lack it.

    There are hints of potential in Monsters 4x4, but underdeveloped gameplay, a horrible camera, and some of the worst songs and sound effects ever in a GameCube title plague them into pettiness.

    Like that hot popular girl in high school - gorgeous on the outside but no personality on the inside. Mario Pinball Land is just too generic, and though it has the Mushroom Kingdom cast supporting it the gameplay is fully capable of causing splitting headaches.

    The two-player mode adds no value to Space Raiders because there isn’t enough substance to the gameplay in the first place. There’s no sense of challenge and there is little fun since dodging and shooting at the same spot in a street is so undeveloped for games these days.

    It is slow, annoying and simply boring.

    Both due to the limitations of the platform, and the poor execution of pretty much every game style presented, this game will bore everyone, regardless of age or sex.

    Okay, I will admit that I did have some fun with Charlie’s Angels as I am a sucker for beat-em-up titles. The game is shoddily put together, graphically ugly, and sometimes difficult to play because of game mechanics and cheap AI.

    Scream Arena takes a line from the movie and creates and entire game from it. It’s so thin that the single line in the movie is more entertaining.

    If you want a Pokémon knock-off that's good, go for "Pokémon Snap" or those great party games in Pokémon Coliseum, as those are at least enjoyable. Pokémon Dash is really only for those who like a racer that's fun for about an hour.

    On one hand, you have gorgeous visuals, tense action-paced music, and a hefty single player mode (8 levels which should take you around 30 minutes to an hour each). However, the other side of the coin features linear missions, sloppy controls, framerate issues and an overall buggy design.

    An awful videogame with no redeeming value.

    Acclaim had to rush the GBA version of the game in order to make the holiday rush, and let’s just say it was a disastrous decision.

    Simply put, there's just not much substance. Almost everything there is to experience can be found in the first couple of levels, and what little is added to the game later on certainly doesn't make it worth a play-through, much less a purchase.

    A subpar racing game. I had a somewhat fun time blazing through Story Mode, but with a lack of tracks, no real reason to play the other modes, and the fact that you'll get bored of it in less than an hour, it's hard to recommend this game.

    I cannot recommend this game due to its poor graphics, side scrolling glitches, bizarre gameplay, and mediocre ... well, everything.

    It has its moment’s graphics wise that make me wish they had done more right gameplay wise, but they didn’t, and in the end, it’s the gameplay that matters.

    And while playing with another person is a little livelier, the atrocious camera will soon make things more frustrating than fun.

    To put it bluntly, this game is not good at all...The utter repetitiveness of hearing the same 20 second beat again and again made the sound more pain than pleasure.

    Remember the 30 day time limit in the original Pikmin and how amazingly stressful that was? Well picture that and multiply it by five. I almost felt like I was baby sitting and not getting paid. Boring, frustrating gameplay that will leave you in tears of anger.

    It doesn't help that the AI is ludicrously tough, and as cheap as possible. The AI can pull off moves that the gamer couldn't possibly do as fast.

    In case it isn't abundantly obvious, this game is bad. It's horrible. It's awful... might just be the worst game on the Gamecube.

    The average replay value I’d approximate for any player of this game would be no more than five minutes. Heck, halfway through one game, you won’t even want to finish the game.

    I absolutely, without a doubt, hate this game. It’s incredibly easy, can be beaten with no problem in less than three hours, and is above all else, not fun.
