    Backyard Soccer should, indeed, be buried in someone's backyard and then stepped on forever by kids playing soccer on a make-believe soccer field above its burial ground.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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”.

    Horrible control and subpar graphics ruin what could have been a special fighter on the PS2.

    My biggest beef with Siren is that it's one and only really "key" feature, sightjacking, was played up to be a very useful tool that will be essential in your survival. What no one really bothered to mention is that sightjacking is about all the game really is (at least in the earlier portions of the game).

    An arcadey boxing game that doesn’t measure-up to Midway’s years-old "Ready 2 Rumble Round 2."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Without the intense craziness of true Midway arcade charm, though, even the multiplayer wore thin, leaving me wanting to go back to games like FIFA.

    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!

    Vicki is no Lara Croft and unfortunate[ly] for 3DO she's not even close.

    NAMCO is asking fifty bucks for the privilege of having our fingers sore and our pride hurt from playing a virtual masochist's dream come true.

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

    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.

    Its precariously short length (half-a-dozen brief stages plus Boss battles) and exorbitant price ($60 packed with a GunCon 2 and $45-50 by itself) couldn’t have come at a worst time.

    While I recommend you rent this, buying it would be a grave mistake.

    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.
    • 57 Metascore

    Stay far far away from this unfortunate mess.

    I don’t think my heartbeat rate rose above that of a dead corpse even once while playing Whiteout.

    Competent but inferior to its souped-up competitors, Final Four 2003 is an amusing weekend rental at best.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A godsend for those who prefer almost no control over their players.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Shoddy control and awful collision detection only worsen what could have been a decent game otherwise.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game that plays like the 8bit days and that just won't cut it in this economy. Call this one Top Gear Letdown.

    Oh, my how the great have fallen...$50 for Parappa 2 is "highway robbery."
    • 54 Metascore

    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.

    The programmers behind Neo Contra make some puzzling changes to the series’ classic formula that shoot the whole project to hell. It’s as if KCET ("Gradius V") wanted to destroy Contra instead of reviving it.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    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.).

    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.
    • 59 Metascore

    A valiant attempt at creating a serene and relaxed scavenger hunt.
    • 64 Metascore

    If you love this series on PC then stick to it there because the essence of what makes HMM is just hinted at on PS2.
