    It's clear that Flip's Twisted World aims to not only evoke comparisons to high quality 3D platformers like Super Mario Galaxy, but also high-concept puzzle platformers such as Braid, And Yet It Moves, and A Boy and His Blob. However, the unimaginative level design, overall bugginess, and general lack of polish really stop it from achieving those goals.

    FlingSmash is full of interesting gameplay ideas that would've been a lot more fun if the game controlled well, or at the very least, compensated for the poor controls by being a little more forgiving.

    In summary, Namco Museum Megamix is, for all its ambitions, an average classic games collection.

    Shaun White Skateboarding has a good hook with the transforming environments, but the bland level design and unsatisfactory gameplay make it, at best, a mediocre skateboarding game.

    Hot Pursuit on Wii doesn't even pretend to try to live up to the standards set by its HD siblings. Avoid this one at all costs. Go play Mario Kart or Excitebots instead.

    If you've never played a Worms game before, only own a Wii, and want a low barrier for entry, then I highly recommend this game. However, if you've ever played a Worms game before, or own any other video game system released sometime in the past decade, find a Worms game for that system, as it is probably way better than this neutered Wii version.

    Tron Evolution is a serviceable licensed game that doesn't do anything bad, but it also doesn't do anything great. The short adventure will likely entertain fans of the franchise, but outside of that, it's not worth playing.

    There is nothing inherently challenging about the mechanics of Samurai Defenders, because it is ultimately the same tower defense game we have all played before.

    I did not play all of it, but I did play enough to find AI flaws, get bored, and generally not like it at all.

    An unremarkable game that plays like a standard soccer title with Disney characters thrown on the rosters -- and that's about it.

    While NHL Hitz 2003 would be a great mini game in a console game, maybe something one would see in a Midway adaptation of "Animal Crossing," it’s not a deep or fun enough game worthy of a $40 purchase.

    The graphics and sound are rather bland, and novice players will spend a lot of time blundering through their mistakes until they figure out how to play the game through trial and error. Not much fun at all.

    It is the one of the ports you were afraid would flood the GBA when you heard it had SNES-like capabilities. It is quick and dirty, and tied in to another product to boot.

    If you already like Duel Masters, have lots of the cards, and like its game mechanics, go ahead and get the GBA version. It sports a whole lot of what you already like. But if you are like me and are getting quite burned out on the whole card battling scene, this game most definitely will not change your mind about it.

    Unsurprisingly mediocre. Its attempts at realistic physics are interesting, but the gameplay and level design make the spinning more of a liability than a fun new element to an otherwise familiar formula.

    A dull title with next to no actual gameplay to be found...Most people are going to fall asleep playing this game.

    It's easy to see why this game never made it over to the states in the first place. It's nowhere near as much fun as the previous games in the series, and it's hampered by bad level design and boring gameplay.

    This is what happens when you get an old, dated license and have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

    This game will only last you few for a few hours, if you're lucky.
    • 56 Metascore

    A mediocre game in just about every department.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game that could have been great. But due to the glaring control issues and lack of player rewards, it becomes a chore rather than a game, and most players will probably be bored or frustrated if they bother to play it.

    Completely average and exactly what you'd expect from a licensed GBA game. There's very little bang for your buck.

    The true test of whether or not this game is worthwhile for purchase is your tolerance for mediocrity. Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a perfectly acceptable racer that simply doesn't try very hard to please or impress.

    I never thought I'd say this, but not even cleaning up poop can save The Sims 2 (GBA) from being a pile in its own right. Sure, it's got an award-worthy presentation and cool mini-games, but when the central gameplay isn't worth its weight, I simply can't recommend it in good faith.

    There are some good things about the game, but unfortunately the bad outweigh the good.

    Running around trying to solve puzzles with trial and error just isn't fun, but it is an improvement over the last game.

    Christ, staying up and watching late-night weekend Cinemax or even renting any given title in the “Wild Comedy” section at any mom and pop video store gives you more than that. Where’s the filth?
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Well presented, but a bit uninteresting, repetitive, and limited. Most of the game is just running and shooting at enemies with the auto-targeting, which isn't amazingly fun.

    Neither a horrible nor excellent game, but it is most certainly disappointing in light of the time and money spent on its development. In regards to its claim to be an indispensable companion piece to "The Matrix: Reloaded," it's just as lackluster.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A very bland and unremarkable game plagued by poor control and design.
