    The multiplayer action and graphics are solid, but insanely repetitive gameplay, sluggish controls, and an impractical utilization of unlockable items handicap the title.

    Although Sub Rebellion isn't the best-looking game on the block, it is still a lot of fun to play. Huge bosses have numerous targets to destroy and the action can get intense.

    Although Capcom vs. SNK 2 doesn’t break any new ground, there is enough depth here to keep any 2D fighting game fan happy.

    It isn’t a bad game; it’s just not exceptionally good, either.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Fast and frantic.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    The music alone will draw you back for a few repeat plays, just don’t expect it to last much longer than a single rental period.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    While containing a wealth of songs to master and many bonus games to unlock, the relatively difficult control mechanics may hamper its appeal.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    A unique title with controls too complex for an arcade title and action too ridiculous for a simulation.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    While multiplayer accessibility is limited, head-to-head play is better than it ever has been before.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Instead of going back and fine-tuning the game's fundamentals, the developers let the broken stuff stay broken and added in some cheap new bells and whistles.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    The shoddy AI compensates for the game’s substandard targeting system.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Because it demands a lot of precision during play, sometimes the fun gets lost in the shuffle.
    • 69 Metascore

    While not perfect, Haven: Call of the King works on many levels—as a platformer, as vehicular racing title, as a centerpiece for fine soundtrack work.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    The efforts put into the acting and story deserve a game with better graphics, less glitches, and more refined gameplay.

    Even without the bells and whistles that other recent rhythm-based games have offered, PaRappa the Rapper 2 is a lot of fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    It just can’t match up to the PC and Xbox versions due to the difference in graphics quality and the lack of an important gameplay element.
    • 65 Metascore

    While it may get 10 out of 10 for style, this title is plagued by clunky controls and a rather short shelf life. [Import]

    There's nothing wrong with 80's cartoons, and this strange hybrid of snowboarding and adventure is actually pretty fun, despite its shortcomings. Sometimes, two great tastes really do taste great together.

    People with ADD will drop out first, followed by those looking for instant graphic gratification, then the casual gamers, and lastly the diehards.

    Although the Japanese influenced gameplay is engaging at first, countless deathmatch battles and only three arenas hurt the overall appeal.

    WSB for the Xbox feels much more like an upgrade than a complete overhaul...This game is easily the best baseball game on the market, but as fans of the genre know, that's not really saying much.

    A unique title with controls too complex for an arcade title and action too ridiculous for a simulation.

    It’s pretty much a given that beating up Nazis is inherently fun, but the developers threw in some truly entertaining wrinkles into the combat to make the Nazi-bashing especially enticing.

    This could be the best looking console game yet... Sadly for fans of the sport, the beach volleyball gameplay is just plain lacking.

    Unfortunately, this version of Capcom's seminal survival horror title doesn't play as good as it looks. As a matter of fact, it plays a whole heck of a lot like the original Resident Evil.

    The strong multiplayer establishes Bomberman Online as a worthwhile purchase. Though the story mode is challenging, once finished, there is little incentive to continue play.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    It’s like Tetris, only with... No, wait. It’s just Tetris.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Too short and on the easy side.

    JC2 shows promise initially, but a quirky sense of humor and an endearing fairy sidekick aren't enough to save it from becoming repetitive.

    Blitz is still a fun game, but it's in danger of joining NBA Jam and its cadre of rehashes ("NBA Hoops", "NBA Showtime") in the realm of the utterly irrelevant.
