    The music's jaunty, the sound effects "zappy"; it looks okay, it plays okay, and it's all perfectly diverting for a few hours or so.

    This will gain friends more because of it's online compatibility than the quality of the actual game which is a very average and graphically unimpressive racer-by-numbers.

    The gaming equivalent of a vapid summer blockbuster: shallow, but fun while it lasts and a lot more enjoyable if you experience it with a friend.

    Fans of gun games would be far better served grabbing a copy of "House of the Dead 2" + Sega's gun.

    If this game was part of a bundle then I might play it again, but only when I was very drunk and had forgotten how poor it was.

    It's not a bad game, but there are many other games of this type that play a lot better and ultimately simulating the large vessels from the "Star Trek" universe is it's undoing.

    The PS2 marketing machine has done it's job. Now Sony have to back it up with quality software, not limp, glitchy sequels like this.

    It's obvious that this was a rushed attempt at getting some software ready for the PS2's launch and it's a shame.

    I'm not given to venting my spleen, but I really didn't get off on this title.

    People looking for a more realistic and rewarding football experience go for "ISS Pro Evolution." If a fast and not too taxing kickabout is what you want, well, you know the score with FIFA games by now.

    An utterly pointless game in every way. Unless you're a Disney fanatic who's always wanted to drive Mickey Mouse round a load of bland go-kart track, this is not for you.

    Vacuous pap...It's not one of the worst travesties to ever soil a console, but merely a very average shooter that shouldn't have had the Star Wars license put anywhere near it.

    The most fun you'll have with this one will come from the first few tries - after which familiarity will rapidly breed contempt.

    About as worthwhile an investment as Russ Abbot's Party Atmosphere single, although it has to be said that the single represents considerably better value for money.

    One wag referred to this game as the Timothy Dalton, rather than the Sean Connery, of Bond games. Balderdash. This is the George Lazenby - no, wait, the Woody Allen, in that crappy Casino Royale 007 spoof, of Bond games. Licensed to kill? On this evidence, James shouldn't even be licensed to drive.

    If you've got shorts, Simpsons Wrestling really should be eating them.

    While "SSX" may well be the best game on PS2, Surfing H30 is surely the worst - that's some claim.

    A complete and utter waste of time and money for anyone who isn't a die-hard shoot 'em-up junky.

    If you've only got an attention span of ten minutes this is great. If you've got an IQ in double digits you should take this as a direct insult to your man/womanhood. Absolute cack.

    Slow paced, repetitive and with a weak storyline, DV is unlikely to please the usual RPG gamer, and will probably only appeal to the most ardent of Dungeons & Dragons freaks, and to players who just want a bit of mindless orc killing to occupy ten minutes here and there.

    If the design document for Sonic Shuffle contained anything more than the sentence "Make a clone of Mario Party but with Sonic characters" I'll be very much surprised. (But) Sega HQ left out the all-important instruction of: "Make sure you don't leave out all the good bits".

    Its shallow nature may also put people off, but it's a laugh for everyone in multiplayer.

    If you've played other wrestling games -- especially "Smackdown" -- you'll find it hard to believe the developers thought they could get away with this.
