    It's hard to believe this is a Konami game, as it looks and feels more like the type of crap that put 3DO six feed under. The character design, models, and animation are painfully bad, and teh gameplay is so arduous it's almost insulting. [Aug 2004, p.57]

    In the final analysis, Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire is just not worth your time...and this coming from a Gundam maniac. [Jan. 2007, p.73]

    Aquaman is to underwater action what the man of steel is to airborne antics - crappy - and on Xbox nonetheless. [Oct 2003, p.73]

    I'm not joking when I say the people who purchase this game would be better off if the case was empty... The worst game I have ever played. [May 2003, p.62]

    An exercise in repetition and costume changes that's part ragged arcade fighter and part "oh God, why am I playing this?" [Sept 2003, p.80]
