    An unoriginal game that fails to improve on any of the games it emulates. It’s just another game in a long line of “me too” cookie-cutter platformers that fills the stores around Christmas time.

    The racing is fun for a while, and the appeal of launching your driver like a human dart can’t be denied, but even those who love that aspect wish you could skip the drawn out animation after awhile.

    The game's got a bevy of problems, including boring gameplay, a horrendous framerate, and lousy aiming.

    While seasoned gamers will be turned off by the game's countless cheap deaths, bad controls, inept camera and uninspired gameplay, Crash rookies might find something to like.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The game has so many technical flaws that you simply cannot enjoy the experience.

    For $49.99, it’s a definite pass; maybe when it drops down to budget price all you nature fans might give it a try. Just don’t expect much…at least it’s cheaper than a real safari.

    Chances are, however, that no one is going to buy or rent this game just so they can unlock the Edmonton Oilers' Wayne Gretzky that scored 50 goals in 39 games during the 1981 season.

    From Russia With Love is a perfect example of how not to port a game from the PS2 to PSP. It does absolutely nothing new and a host of things much worse.

    So in the end, there are plenty of great games out there, and without any doubt, this definitely isn't one of them.

    Cars Race-O-Rama takes a good concept and fails to implement it properly. The idea comes up well short due to erratic and somewhat unreliable physics, an overly bland atmosphere, a sense of definite repetitiveness, and a lack of mechanical upgrades that could’ve made the experience richer.
    • 60 Metascore

    Without a sense of direction or a goal, you never feel as if you’re working towards something, and the entire quest almost seems arbitrary.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Simply put, this just isn't worth your money. This would've been an acceptable game back on the PlayStation and maybe even early PlayStation 2 days, but the level of shallowness in game mechanics, the poor visuals, the boring story, the lousy audio, and the awful controls make it totally unacceptable for this generation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    I could mention other issues; like the fact that the whole game barely takes 3 hours to complete, the inclusion of a lame 2-D bonus game, or the lack of any sort of multiplayer features; but to complain any further would just be beating a very dead horse.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A lousy game through and through. Like “The Guy Game” it provides little more than a flimsy premise to hide the fact that all there is to do is see breasts on your Playstation 2. From both a game play and technical standpoint, this game is a mess.

    Reliving the real-life Olympics is a far better option that trying to experience them in a virtual realm; this game will frustrate, annoy, and soon tire most any gamer.
    • 58 Metascore

    Constantine (the game) is terrible... In the early days of the PS2, Constantine would've been cutting-edge; a fun action romp. But this is 2005, not 2001. We demand that games look, sound, and play better than this.

    NBA
    NBA is beyond lackluster and barebones, it’s downright sloppy. Launch title or not, this may very well be 989’s worst sports effort since the first PS2 "GameDay" title.

    Sometimes it worked; sometimes it didn’t. And it felt downright silly to be flinging the controller all over the place during battle.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A buggy, unfinished and uninspired game.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Nothing more than an awful game, with horrific visuals, arguably the worst framerate this generation has seen, poor audio, and cookie-cutter gameplay that'll bore you to tears. As a torture device, Blacksite works extremely well, so if you're into masochism, this'll do the trick.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    This is the epitome a game that was quickly thrown together with the most basic and juvenile concepts videogaming has.

    Racing games are supposed to be games of skill, not chance. Sonic Riders, despite all of its shortcuts and power-up items, feels like a game of chance. What's more, it's also a real pain in the ass to play.

    So, curse you Konami, for releasing Frogger: Ancient Shadow, which made me scream and throw my controller, and thank you Konami, for releasing "Frogger: Helmet Chaos" [PSP/DS], which I had some fun with.

    It's broken, it's brief, and it'll only make you wonder "what if" every time you play it.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    A very poorly done game, that suffers from uninspired gameplay, poor track design, redundancy, and innovation. Furthermore, gamers who enjoy a decent looking title will find that MX vs. ATV Untamed is one of the worst visual offenders out there on the PlayStation 2, as it features an absurd lack of texture detail and a never ending supply of ugly.

    Raccoon City is just [p]lain boring to me. There's nothing here I want to return to. The game can be fun with other people, there are a few patented Resident Evil scares, and the controls work fine (provided you're willing to put up with some clunkiness). But everything else about it is really…I dunno, "meh."
    • 52 Metascore

    Having varying objectives that may change at a moment’s notice add a little flavor to this very bland dish, but it’s not enough to save it.

    Slow, and stupid. Fielders will inexplicably hold onto the ball before moving to throw it, which in turn causes a whole lot of infield hits.

    If you’re into mindless shooting and action, Dead to Rights II might be a pleasant weekend diversion. However, if you’re looking for a game that improves on the original, delivers an interesting story, varied gameplay, and is worth $50, you need to look elsewhere.
