    The multi-player modes and maps in "Gold Edition", which are exclusive features for this PS2 port that were meant to be selling points, are sabotaged by control and graphics that are far below the standards of competing FPS titles on the system.

    From its outdated graphics to button-mashing combos, and from its lame cast of new/returning characters to the needless addition of unnecessary gore, Bloody Roar 4 is weak sausage in a videogame system packed with succulent buffets of interactive brawling ("VF 4: Evo," "Tekken 4," etc.).
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There isn't a tree, mountain, character, location or special effect in this game that has any degree of personality or liveliness within its existence, making the whole engine seem like an assembly-line, cookie-cutter, by-the-numbers effort on the part of From Software.

    • 40 Critic Score
    A valiant attempt at creating a serene and relaxed scavenger hunt.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Rent "Gadget Racers" instead.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Sounds are OK and some (repeat, SOME) of the graphics are decent, but Dawn of Fate isn’t worth the gas money disappointed customers will spend rushing back to the store to beg for a refund.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Stay far far away from this unfortunate mess.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A handful of neat fire and particle special effects can’t hide the fluctuating frame-rate, generic track design and lack of originality that permanently doom Drome Racers to PS2 inconsequentiality.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    his game makes a mockery out of both its source material and the stealth genre it pretends to be a part of.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's just no way around it, the camera is terrible and contributes to making this game’s fun factor go way down.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Competent but inferior to its souped-up competitors, Final Four 2003 is an amusing weekend rental at best.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An adequate but flawed multi-beast shooter that's too overpriced and unpolished to be worth the attention of anyone but the hardest of Ian Livingstone hardcore fans.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    From its patchwork gameplay and its broken control scheme to its first-generation PlayStation 2 graphics and third-tier sound effects, nothing about this game is even worthy of a mention.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There is some mindless fun to be had playing along with friends, but not enough to compensate for the absence the Season, Franchise or Dynasty modes we've come to expect from EA Sports.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Paying full price for "Real Pool" would be an insult to every other good PS2/DC/PSX/N64/GBC title that you haven't played yet.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Someone over at Blade Interactive must have been asleep at the wheel when coding this game's sound effects and music.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The perfect April Fool's present for people that like to waste fifty bucks (or countless hours of their life) staring at a 'Loading' sign.

    Vicki is no Lara Croft and unfortunate[ly] for 3DO she's not even close.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    If you're over the nostalgia that the prequel inspired, and don't give a rat's ass about poor Daisy's plight, leave this turd for those who don't know better.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Maybe getting drunk would help me appreciate the simplistic gameplay and halfway-decent graphics that "Top Angler" is trying to pass as PS2 worthy.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    This has got to be THE WORST CONTROL IN THE HISTORY OF THIRD-PERSON ACTION GAMES.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The cartoony violence, blood spills and redneck appeal of Backyard Wrestling’s rural locales and colorful cast of characters wears thin quicker than the time it took its equally-shoddy sequel to come out.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Stay away, far, far away from this and let's hope "ESPN NFL Primetime" can give EA some competition.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    From generic level designs to Nina Williams’ busted right analog control, and from amateurish voice acting to an unbearable amount of never-ending loading pauses, this game is inexcusably poor and no fun to play whatsoever.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Delivers a zero-frills interpretation of a board game that is best enjoyed with friends gathered around a table, NOT a TV set hooked up to a PS2.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Dreadful, boring and not featuring an iota of the excitement and intensity found in its motion picture counterpart, Minority Report disappoints at every turn.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    I’d rather replay the boring parts of “Code: Veronica X” or the entirety of Agetec’s “Disaster Report” (a shitty-looking survival game we’re also reviewing today) than suffer through one more minute of Galerians: Ash’s broken gameplay and uninspired gameplay ideas.
    • 50 Metascore

    I don’t think my heartbeat rate rose above that of a dead corpse even once while playing Whiteout.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    If bad videogames were disasters then Salt Lake 2002 would be The Hindenberg explosion and the sinking of Titanic rolled into one.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Its dead-average platforming thrills, low asking price and beyond over-the-top visual style are this game’s saving graces.
