    A slightly frustrating and resolutely average game which does nothing to capitalize on its source material or distinguish itself from other games, and displays worrying signs of rushed development and technical inadequacy.

    The franchise has become an exercise in monotony.

    In creating only six levels they decided to make this path system that actually frustrated me in the Fairy Woods level where "many paths look the same and you don’t want to get lost."

    I usually love kid's games, but this one was an exercise in monotony. I really had no desire to keep going.

    Star X had a lot of promise – the game opened up superbly. But as the game went on – with twenty-three levels in all, I just didn’t feel like going on.

    Surprisingly one-dimensional in gameplay. The accelerator is the key to winning. I never caught on to the fun experience of the racing or strategy, if there is any in the game.

    Like the difference between a fight in real-life (scrappy, brawling, inelegant) and a fight from your favourite movie (balletic, graceful, dynamic), buy this if you like to see two blokes battering each other into submission. If you like a bit of style, skill and excitement with your violence, don't bother.

    The execution just wasn’t there. The entire game seemed to walk across the line between mediocre and good. The gameplay, while having the right concept, just isn’t as fun as it might have been.

    It is simply not fun...and what pains me even more is that the dog-fighting mechanics could easily have made this an amazing game!

    Too short and not enough fun to be recommended for anymore than a desperate rent. You might find it entertaining for a short time if you are a huge fan of Donald.

    Decent as a virtual pet game, but anyone over the age of seven will get bored fast so matter how much they enjoy Pokemon.

    There was certainly enough material to make Kong a perfectly decent ‘me too’ platformer, but apparently gameplay wasn’t the focus during development.

    A mediocre fighting game. The unique battle system simply does not make up for the short and simple gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    The levels are entertaining to a degree, and retain interest for most of the game, but when inching towards the end with only two or so bosses remaining it becomes a chore that isn’t as rewarding as the work put forth to finish.
    • 39 Metascore

    The graphics system works, not too well, but every level is playable and enjoyable if it weren’t for having to start over completely after each life.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A short game. It has its flaws, but it can be an enjoyable title, if only for a little while, and the price is a little cheaper than other titles coming out this holiday season.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's too frustrating for an eleven year old and too mindless for anyone older, so it's hard to tell exactly who this game is for or even why it was made in the first place.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If it really was designed with the younger gamer in mind, the excessively long load times should really have been minimized. If the slightly older sibs/parents were also the intended audience, some more button controls during both the 3d and side-scrolling sequences would have been very much appreciated.

    There is some refreshing additions to gameplay, but the replay value is diminishing as this game gets older... It's old yet somewhat refreshing.

    A good looking, mediocre title that, though fun in a few respects, will only impress fans of the show. If you're into the cartoon, and enjoy its humor, you'll find a lot of fun in this licensed title.

    With some poor attempts to capitalize on the extreme sports genre, Beach Bandits doesn't have a whole lot to offer, even for the younger gamers this game was intended for.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Even with less than average graphics the basic gameplay wasn't too hard and it would prove easy for kids to get into playing as Bugs and Daffy.

    On paper, Narnia could have been so much more, but the predictable and often annoying gameplay mechanics, combined with unpolished presentations and weak sound effects take away from the overall experience.

    The gameplay here sucks. It is heinous, hideous, and despicable. The game's presentation, though, does shine through and makes the game bearable.

    It simply does not capture the spirit of the Daredevil character and his universe.

    A painful experience.

    One boring and frustrating game... The controls and sheer monotony simply ruin the game.
    • 79 Metascore

    It just doesn't feel like the same series we've come to know, and follows the traits of similar action games of today, rather then the simple style to that of our yester years. It has its fair share of problems sure, but still remains fun.

    You can tell this is a budget game through and through. There is no battery save, so your looking at a pass code system. Get your pad and paper ready.

    Climax Studios restricted themselves too much by maintaining this old style though; gorgeous environments fall short of their potential and elements to enhance gameplay were intentionally left out, and yet with more of a negative result than their exclusion from original games back in the day.
