    A mildly amusing game that half-heartedly struggles to maintain the feel of its predecessor while still maintaining an air of uniqueness. It'll definitely serve to entertain, though those who haven't played the original game may be a little lost.

    If you can't sit down with three other friends, don't bother, but I'll tell you right now this kicks the pants out of "Mario Kart: Double Dash!!" - yes, you heard me.

    Combine the lack of utilization of the DS’ unique capabilities and any improvements over the original with sloppy graphics, horrid controls, and a dreadful save feature, and the Rayman name begins a steady decline into mediocrity with this title.

    While the graphics (or lack thereof) may be a turn off, solid gameplay and storylines free from excessive details help keep Dawn of Souls from derailing like so many RPGs out there today.

    It's a youthful and entertaining way to fill some time; I happily played through it while doing laundry the other day and found that time just flew by.

    A must for hardcore Mario buffs, as well as those GameCube owners dying to get on the Dance Dance bandwagon.

    Feels too much like the average cart racer. And the fact that you take hold of a plane rather then a cart is entertaining, but still doesn't feel any different, and has just as many boundries (and some odd ones at that).

    The game isn’t fun to play, which is the only really glaring problem with it...It needs more polished mechanics, enhanced physics, and overall better ideas.

    Street mode play feels like the same thing over and over again, and the franchise mode also lacks spice. It’s hard to play this game and have unique experiences.

    Take decent sound and graphics, and inject unoriginal platforming with a kid’s license and you have Dinotopia.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's not bad, it's just too short and without enough substance.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The developer’s weariness with the franchise was accentuated by the drastic difference in quality between the flight and ground missions. The actual shooting in this FPS is only half complete, and it was greatly overshadowed by the in-game flying.

    Camera problems and lack of opponents turned me away from the overall good gameplay.

    Perhaps the best aspect of the game is that you will care a lot about collecting treasure.
    • 70 Metascore

    The worst part of the sound, though, is the soundtrack.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A solid game that might not make enough use of the license in terms of plot and overall presentation, but it’s certainly fun and there are a wide variety of obstacles and environments throughout the game although much of it may be frustrating.

    Good fighting, awesome link up features, and incentives to keep playing, it's just not Mortal Kombat.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A tedious adventure ridden with pointless, almost "Resident Evil"-esque puzzles.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A game that has aged and rusted, some visual and technical enhancements would have raised the game value.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Not the greatest adventure experience, and some shoddy controls make platforming sections a real nuisance.

    Disappointing considering NHL Hitz has a solid franchise mode where you can build a team from the ground up, and then play a series of games against other fantasy teams and eventually real NHL teams.

    There may be some people in this world who revel in this degree of complexity, but the rest of us mere mortals may wish for something a little less taxing.
    • 70 Metascore

    A mixed bag with some really awesome levels and gameplay; yet it has bland graphics and music.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It has some solid aspects, but tedium just overcomes whatever satisfaction I could have garnered.
    • 77 Metascore

    My main gripe is the lack of a batter-save and there really is no excuse for its absence.

    Jango Fett is quite possibly my favorite character in the current trilogy, and I think it was an absolute genius idea to formulate a game around him... The game, on the other hand, just kind of wallows in mediocrity.

    The rigid and debilitating controls work very much against the game. While it may be the prettiest soccer game on the Gamecube, it's not the best.

    The game itself is fun, but after a while the excitement fades and all that remains is a soccer game that you might pull out every once in a while for a quick Exhibition run.

    There just seems to be something empty in the gameplay. The fighting does not seem solid, and the tournament is less than exciting.

    With how quick the missions move, the whole thing gets glazed over. Having the graphics of the Xbox game could have really benefited this port. Multiplayer mode does not save the title, only hurts its image.
