    To make matters worse if this had been released back in the day when linear gameplay and generic platform problems were acceptable Twinsanity would've still been average. Today there is nothing redeeming.

    It seems that Antz Extreme Racing only took a few hours to chuck together, using some old sticky back plastic and some double-sided tape. It’s awful.

    Whatever the mission, the same problems rear their ugly head. The gameplay is dire; you don’t even want to see what the second mission is, let alone get to the end. The graphics are atrociously bad -- perhaps the worst on the GameCube.

    Kings Field – a name that has been emblazoned upon our minds by virtue of its sheer incompetence.

    This thing either found us in an incredibly bad mood (unlikely) or it’s one of the most insulting games we have ever had the displeasure to play (yes). Just don’t buy it.

    Don't get us wrong, we love jumping cars and smashing through barn doors, but the game is desperately in need of something else. A little thing called gameplay.

    You do this with the aid of obscuring camera angles, slow reactions, moves which force you to fight in the wrong direction, clumsy controls and a loading time that exceeds all expectations.

    An absolutely listless piece of software, which fails on almost every level to convey the action of its subject sport. If the big man himself sees this, he’s liable to bite the Darling brothers’ ears off.

    In fact, every element of Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown kinda loses its comedy sheen over time, inviting the doubts to creep in and fester in your mind: Could it be that Capcom aren't actually having a laugh? Are they serious about this game?

    The control system is still good but the rest of the game is still shockingly weak.

    Who would want to admit to buying this? We’d certainly be too embarressed to show this to any of our friends, enemies, neighbours, random strangers off the street, pet cat...

    With no training mode demonstrating how to best persuade a piscine creature into your boat, this game presents a painfully dull exercise in frustration.

    When a modern day Xbox game can't humble a 17 year-old arcade game, you know something has gone horribly wrong.

    This really is the most onerous, excruciating thumb-mind-and-soul-numbing experience we've had the sorrowful displeasure of witnessing. To play it is as concerning as listening to a long, drawn out joke that you have to pay attention to follow, only to realise the that the punchline is embarrassingly racist. The devil would cry. This is embarrassing.

    It's simply so nut-twistingly rank, so grit-sandwichedly unpalatable that any speechless incredulity invariably gets rammed into your brain with more than enough force for it to pop right out the other side, leaving you gasping with an enlightened sense of faecel awareness.

    Simply put this is the worst game we’ve seen on the Xbox. Before you even touch the controller you have to endure the pathetic excuse for graphics. The textures are about as bland as you can get, the visual effects are comparative to the Game Boy Advance and the vehicle models do anything but inspire.

    Akin to a dirty secret, such as catching your best mate's mother in bed with the dog, Stake is a something that is best forgotten for fear of some sort of mental trauma a few years down the line.

    It’s quite scary to think that one or two people might pick this game up on the strength of the Gravity Games license alone.

    With almost no exception, it is the worst game ever to be reviewed in these pages. It’s simply the most cynically created, idly designed and unbelievably unenjoyable title yet made for the Game Boy Advance.

    Just too basic to allow for any long-term appeal.
