    The gore alone will keep you entertained at first, but once you discover the game's detailed graphics and subtle effects you'll be hooked.

    Although the length is a bit disappointing, "Another World" and the Agent Academy do help keep things interesting beyond the (very fun) main game.

    A game that will torture you with terribile acting, when it isn't putting you to sleep.

    D2
    Although D2 is as stylish as other Warp titles have proven to be, it just isn't any fun. A myriad of other complaints make this a rental, at best.

    "But there is no joy in Mudville -- Visual Concepts has struck out."
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a well done arcade shooter and the perfect game to toss in when you have some time to kill.

    Much to my disappointment, Iron Aces turns out to be a really great idea dragged way the hell down by far too many bad design decisions.

    I've never been a fan of vehicular combat titles, and this game hasn't changed my mind.

    It isn't that the game isn't solid and fun. It's just that most players will wonder why they didn't just stick a couple of bucks in the arcade machine instead.

    I really don't see me pulling it out to play as often as I'd like thanks mainly to a complete lack of levels. Razor Freestyle Scooter is a very good game, a solid game, but doesn't do enough to push it past simply being a distant "kiddie" Tony Hawk.

    A mediocre effort and use of the license. With only 22 wrestlers and subpar graphics and gameplay, the game should only appeal to desperate Dreamcast owners.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that has some problems, but its great storyline, great characters, and trmendous amount of humor moves its minor gameplay flaws into the shadows.

    It's fun and replayable -- what more could anyone want?

    Sets a standard for AI programming, and it's a good game... if you like raising and training virual pets... Don't be surprised if you complete the game in one sitting.

    Even with all its modes of play, a bad game is still a bad game, no matter how many servings it offers. Sno-Cross is simply a bad racing game.

    Control and camera issues, and the strange stop-n-go gameplay that Illbleed sports may be too annoying to make people want to endure the game's six levels. If you can get past those problems, then you may find something that is actually pretty enjoyable.

    The feeling of surfing has never been realized so well, and the game itself is just a joy to play. If you're interested in a change of pace, consider picking this one up.

    ZR will just drive you nuts. Satisfaction, it seems, goes to the quick, not the dead.

    While it may look like Tempest, and sound like Tempest, it just ain’t Tempest.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    You get amazing graphics, good gaming music, and some arcade style gameplay that is fun for the casual gamer, but might leave feature-loving gamers looking for more.

    The variety of ways to progress in the game should keep them glued to the set. But be warned: there's very little here for us older gamers.

    The game's attempts at arcade racing are very flawed, through poor level design which completely misses the scope for amazing "in your face" arcade levels, poor unrewarding game physics and also through badly implemented extra modes.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While this is not a perfect real-time strategy game, it is simplified enough that most hardcore Dreamcast fans will probably find it to be enjoyable, without having to worry about all of the problems, like resource management, that plagued some PC gamers.

    Not only is the game lacking in innovation, but it's dragged way, way down by uneven and confusing mini games, far too many load-time interruptions and horrible, sophomoric music.

    Creative abortion.

    The game stunk. Bad graphics and terrible gameplay ruined a game with a cool license and awesome soundtrack.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A masterpiece of lazy design strapped onto a fantastic idea, this game uses its license to fool unsuspecting fans of Raimi's films, and of survival horror games in general, into thinking it might live up to its title.

    Death Crimson OX dies the slow death of mediocrity. While no single element of the game is horrible, none of it is good either.
    • 43 Metascore

    Not an awful game. It just isn't a good game. It isn't anything. It feels like it happened by accident (an artist tripped and accidentally made a McGrath model).
