    The gameplay just can’t measure up to the excellent graphics. Each of the huge levels become tedious due to no-brainer puzzles and a poor combat system.

    Put simply, BRPF thrives on button mashing. For those unfamiliar with the term, this means that even the most skilled player can fall victim to a first-timer's frenzied and haphazard button presses.

    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    An appropriately nasty, brutish and short-lived game.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The game falls short of putting you in the cockpit. The whole idea of a dogfight is non-existent. The enemy crafts move too quickly, abandoning any thought of pursuit.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The story is only average for a RPG (make that above average if you love the air pirates setting), the combat system is mildly interesting but lacks much in the way of depth and the presentation is a bit dated.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The forbidding graphics and refreshingly mature storyline are a plus, but the somewhat wonky controls and melodramatic dialogue tend to become tiresome quickly.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Little more than "NBA 2K1" with Michael Jordan, the Memphis Grizzlies, glitchy zone defense and an afterthought of a street ball mode.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A surprising good dancing game, featuring excellent graphics and motion-capture work.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    JC2 shows promise initially, but a quirky sense of humor and an endearing fairy sidekick aren't enough to save it from becoming repetitive.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The sound of skates on ice is particularly grating here, sounding more like nails on a blackboard than thin knives of steel dragging across a slab of frozen water.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The animation and voice acting are really spot-on, bringing the characters to life better than many motion pictures. Unfortunately, the combination of a disorienting camera and consistently sloppy framerate go a long way towards negating Herdy Gerdy’s fun factor.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Racer Revenge's staying power is virtually nonexistent.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The action is solid, the presentation is average with flashes of brilliance, and the story surrounding it is alternately fascinating and flat.

    If you really go for the flavor of early-90’s style graphics and gameplay, and if you have the patience of a rock, then by all means enter and be saved. As for us skeptics, it will take a lot more than nostalgia to win our faith.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    It’s fun in small doses, but frustrating whenever you try to get into it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Full of unrealized potential and will likely be quickly forgotten as new games succeed where this game failed.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    It’s like Tetris, only with... No, wait. It’s just Tetris.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The gameplay is alternately fun and frustrating, the graphics are both striking and stilted, and the sound... No, the sound’s laughably bad all the way through.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Thanks to a ludicrous save scheme, once you start, you had better not stop until you reach the end.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    In the form of fine visuals and interesting gameplay, it has some redeeming qualities. It doesn't have the depth or character designs to make it a memorable fighting title.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An interesting concept marred by a poor save system, lackluster visuals, a frustrating time system, and slow-as-molasses gameplay.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Essentially the game takes the original premise, adds a few minor twists, and slaps some mediocre next-generation 3D graphics onto the product.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Gamers willing to stick it out will be rewarded with a lengthy quest and plenty of challenge, but King's Field: The Ancient City is unlikely to create many new converts.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    To be honest, if the graphics were anything less, gamers would put this game down in a heartbeat.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The only facet of the game that even comes close to satisfying is the abundance of match types.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Uninspired level design, zero challenge, and lackluster graphics will keep many gamers from giving this one much thought.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Weak graphics and shallow gameplay aren’t much incentive to continue playing.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An interesting conundrum of challenging gameplay and flat out irritation.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It sounds great, as all Star Wars games do, but the graphics are bland at best and nauseating at worst, and the action is a redundant mess of blaster fire and jumping puzzles.
