    From generic character designs to an underwhelming audio presentation (in a LucasArts game??!!), and from its close-to-unwatchable frame-rate choppiness to the endlessly boring fetch quests across Mars, RTX Red Rock is a laundry list of what NOT to put out on the crowded 3rd person action/adventure PS2 market these days.

    We can only sigh when playing and seeing such massive amounts of slowdown, dark level design and poor control.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mindless action/adventure fare of the wrong and ill-conceived variety.

    Software that would have even embarrassed the Sega Saturn in its worst days. I'd rather be chasing me some of 'em Duke Boys than been caught dead replaying this turd.

    Not even fans of the cancelled TV show will find anything remotely resembling fun or enticing gameplay in Dark Angel to justify the rental expense.

    For an extra $5 and a trip down the Greatest Hits section of your software retailer you could get better PSX action games. But since when is common sense a virtue?

    Vietcong could suck the sheet metal from a Sherman tank at 500 yards. This is by far the worst game on the PlayStation 2 and the dumb bastard that pays forty dollars for this lackluster frisbee deserves every second of the torment that it spits out.

    You know Konami has screwed-up royally when a 15 year-old beat’em up wipes the floor with their current batch of Turtles games.

    What the hell is happening to the Sega that I knew and loved through the Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast eras?
    • 46 Metascore

    Catwoman isn’t a game as much as a licensed train wreck.
    • 46 Metascore

    For a few brief seconds when you are adequately surfing, this game can be fun, but it is so unforgiving that the moment swiftly ends and you are ready to break the disc.

    Even faithful fans of the TV show will have to extract their Powerpuff Girls fix from the far superior motion picture DVD than this hellish misfire.

    Despite new licensed wrestlers, dozens of new songs and new additions meant to appeal to rural America’s prurient interests (i.e. porn stars as playable wrestlers) Backyard Wrestling 2’s bad graphics, poor collision detection and awful dialogue sink it into the pit of holiday expendability.

    I’ve decided to rename it “Chaotic Thunder”. See the game is such a chaotic mess that it’s hard to describe.

    I’d rather have root canal without anesthesia than to ever put myself through the pain that is playing this game any more than I had to already!

    Once you go it alone, it becomes increasingly clear that your teammate AI is straight out pathetic.

    A year ago this would have been a slight-step above "Army Men"-like badness, but in late 2001 it just doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of justifying its existence as stand-alone PS2 software.

    No sensation of speed in a snowboarding videogame = no fun!
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    If you like punishment or enjoy suffering through hours of boring quests and downright horrible fighting, then by all means go out and purchase this stinker at once. There’s so much wrong with this game it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what makes it awful as it is.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Bland and boring, this is a game to avoid unless you are the most rabid of ATV racing fans, tanked out of your mind on Schlitz, and have precious little else to do.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Seldom has a videogame bored, depressed and insulted me the way "Army Men: Green Rogue" did.

    Rent "Driven", along with Square's "Driving Emotion Type-S", as it's suggested in page 47 of Dr. Jack Kevorkian's favorite book, "Final Exit".
    • 38 Metascore

    There’s nothing in Skateboarding's control, look, sound or execution that comes even remotely close to looking like the game was made with PlayStation 2 technology in mind.
    • 36 Metascore

    All the licenses and potential that Paris-Dakar Rally has as an enjoyable rally experience, however, go to waste in a game that makes the event it portrays seem more boring and dull than it should be.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While I recommend you rent this, buying it would be a grave mistake.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An arcadey boxing game that doesn’t measure-up to Midway’s years-old "Ready 2 Rumble Round 2."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Although suffering from flaws on all fronts (particularly control), I think I can point to the reliance on item collecting as the primary culprit that brings The Great Quest down hard.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Its mini-golf courses (trick obstacles and all) and players are so below the 32-bit standards even low-budget titles should aspire to offer.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Not even pictures/video of gorgeous Hooters girls in skimpy outfits could prevent our violent seizures and brain-hurting flashbacks when we played “Road Trip”.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's as if 3DO felt that the horrendous Core-designed, Eidos-published PS One game "Ninja" deserved an equally-flawed sequel that doesn't look much better than Activision's "Tenchu" games.
