    Epic Mickey is a game that falls short in the part that counts: the gameplay.

    The unlockables, missions, and wide variety of characters save the game from being terrible, luckily.

    Despite its bells and whistles, Black Ops just can't escape the fact that the core gameplay just isn't fun.

    The good news is that I had an enjoyable time playing the game even without being very familiar with Naruto, so it stands to reason that real fans will like it even more.

    It's bad when great games from yesterday lose their steam. It's worse when that very same game's mechanics are implemented in an all-new title.

    This game ambitiously combines several gameplay ideas but never figures out how to balance them against each other for a refined experience. If you're the kind of gamer who can be taken in by artful storytelling even in the absence of polished gameplay, give it a shot.

    While Chronicles of Narnia has solid graphics and sound, a lengthy adventure, and an excellent story, its repetitive "fetch-and-retrieve" gameplay wears thin over the course of seventeen levels.

    Atomic Betty is quite short, clocking in at just under two hours, with absolutely no replay value. It features a password save, which is quite simply inexcusable.

    The potion problems bring down the rest of the game's brighter spots.

    Despite some good aspects, I can't recommend Mazes of Fate unless you're willing to tolerate a half-decent game for 20 hours.
    • 63 Metascore

    Offers quite a bit for a fighting game, but unfortunately where the game falls flat is in the basic fundamentals of what makes any game good, fighter or not.

    Amusing and well worth it if you love SpongeBob SquarePants and enjoy a run-around-collecting-items type of game.

    The gameplay has serious setbacks, but possibly the worst part of Sonic Adventure DX is its cut-scenes. Featuring an atrocious English translation and mind-numbingly horrible voice acting, Sonic Adventure will, at best, leave many players embarrassed for Sega, and at worst, leave them disgusted with the game.

    A fine installment to the series. However, it remains a very basic platformer whose ideas lack originality and, in many ways, feel a little out of date.

    How on earth doesn’t this game have a simple auto-save feature?

    A pretty generic kart racer that is enjoyable, but flawed where it counts: the racing. It's a little too easy to win races, and once you beat it all, there's very little for you to keep coming back to.

    Sonic Heroes’ biggest weaknesses are its combat system and related controls. While the three-formation system provides a refreshing choice in combat styles when facing a handful of opponents, the system quickly becomes disorienting in larger battles.

    Unfortunately, one of the biggest flaws within PSO III becomes quite apparent once a battle begins. Everything takes an inordinately long amount of time.

    If you just got your GameCube at the reduced price and demand Mario Party action, please buy this game instead of "Mario Party 4." Otherwise, stick with the Party you’ve got.

    A tale of two games. One is a set of button-smashing mini-games with questionable entertainment value. The other is one of the greatest creative tools ever released for consoles. The problem is, you have to play a lot of the former to really experience the latter.

    A great shoot ‘em up game that allows you to destroy almost everything in your environment and lets you take your frustrations out on hordes of other 101s. Guns, plasma rifles, tanks, helicopters: you name it, you use it.

    The Great Juju Challenge is respectable with some high moments, but the last set of levels aren't quite as fun, and the final Proving Grounds battle is outright frustrating and repetitive.
    • 71 Metascore

    The main problem with the level design, and you've heard me say this about many other games, is that the strictly linear missions want you to complete specific objectives without usually telling you what those objectives are.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's just not as fun as the previous games in the series. Too much of the formula has changed, and almost none of it for the better.
    • 80 Metascore

    It seems obvious, now, that this game is for the hardcore Need for Speed fan. If you love the series, get it; it's a marked improvement.

    Sonic Gems Collection is packed with rare games, but "rare" is frequently confused with "good". Is this disc interesting enough to rent? Absolutely. Is it worth $30? Not really.
    • 57 Metascore

    If you're looking for a great kart game, stick with "Mario Kart." If you really have the urge to play a kart game featuring Namco characters, then by all means, pick up Pac-Man World Rally.

    Billy and Mandy's gameplay is chaotic and exciting but ultimately gets boring after an hour or two, even when playing with other people.
    • 73 Metascore

    Unless you’re starved for “tactical” action, there is little reason to buy Conflict: Desert Storm 2. While it is an improvement over the first one, the two games are largely identical and suffer from the same identity problem.
    • 54 Metascore

    The visuals are both the best and worst part of the game.
