    Though it lacks certain technical aspects that hard-core driving gamers may have come to expect, City Racer offers players from all walks of gaming genre a very inviting, as well as forgiving, chance to join in the video driving scene – a claim of which very few racers out there can boast.

    On the whole I probably enjoyed the first one more, simply because it came first and was a new experience. Some of the levels, though, make up for it, and bring you back to that level of excitement and tension which I don't feel any other game has ever matched.

    It contains solid gameplay, which involves a great amount of tactical decision-making.

    Players will wonder what could have been had Nintendo and Namco implemented a deeper single player experience. Where's the season mode? Thankfully multiplayer exhibitions greatly extend the game's life.

    At its worst, Shadow is a solid platformer with enough fun to keep hardcore Sonic fans in one place for a few days. At its best, it's an engaging gameplay experience that isn't jaded by its otherwise glaring storyline-related setbacks.

    It's the same thing that has been on a couple of different consoles. If you only played the original Code: Veronica, the only thing that X offers you is some new storyline elements and a few extra cut-scenes. However, if you've never played this game before, you should really give it a shot.

    As I kept playing it got boring, but worse, it got cheap.

    It may not be the best stealth game out there, and some weird control issues hold Rogue Ops back from being all it could be, but Nikki passes her first real mission.

    Simply put, the graphics are disappointing.

    Graphics wise this game is merely OK, but let’s face it, what kind of graphics does a dodge ball game really need?

    Unfortunately, there are major problems in the gameplay that will make just about any player go on strike.

    Even though it’s very fun, it’s just over way too fast.

    A game that definitely gets old quick.

    There’s something about driving around Springfield as Grounds Keeper Willie. He’s mega-awesome and anyone who disagrees is just lying to themselves.

    There is immense replay value, as the game contains 27 levels, and you can re-enter area once you’ve already completed them, should you desire to.

    It’s simple enough to come back to and won’t boggle you down with controls, but at the same time if you play long enough you’ll become bored.

    The experience was a mixed bag because it was loads of fun with all the different weapons, but yet again, the really annoying respawning of soldiers will turn off many gamers.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The straightforward nature of the levels begs for more openness, which isn't available. It was fun while it lasted, but even that wasn't that long.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Unfortunately Knuckles/Rogue gameplay, camera problems, some sound problems and limited replay value hurt the game in the long run.
