    The lackluster visuals, an unsophisticated setup, and tepid pacing render it more curiosity than keepsake, even for series die-hards.

    A mediocre sequel.

    Rather than working with the many strengths of the GBA system, EA Canada has tried to shoehorn impossible content into SSX 3, and the strain shows from moment one.

    When taken in isolation, Black Thorn is a competent, if somewhat uninspiring, add-on. When taken in context, it's overpriced, old-fashioned, and has been released with exquisitely bad timing.

    Looks like a tremendous mistake.

    It's a shame that the whole thing seems so rushed and inexpertly executed.

    Despite what high-school productions of Macbeth may illustrate, swordfighting is actually pretty hard work. So is making a good movie-based video game. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End for Wii fails at both of these tasks, and leaves you with a metaphorical pain in the neck and an all-too-real pain in the shoulder.

    If you can get graphics this good in real-time, why settle for a shooter-on-rails?

    And even if the training mode was more fun and well thought out, it still all boils down to how good the main game is...and frankly, the main game isn't very good anyway.

    Only the most blinkered Mobile Suit fetishist could love this clunky battle sim, which trades speed, finesse, and depth for...well, nothing, really.

    A real disappointment.

    Polygon counts are noticeably low, for both the characters and the levels, and to have an accomplished developer like Sonic Team not push the hardware is quite a disappointment.

    It's probably too much to ask that a single game capture all the nuances of a huge event like the Winter Olympics. But there isn't even the fun and spirit of gameplay that imbued the original "Track and Field," and that was on the Atari-bloody-2600! When a modern game is getting lapped by an 8-bit wonder, something is really rotten in... well, Torino isn't in Denmark, but you get the point

    And while the game generally looks and sounds just fine, you'll come away thinking about the interminably dull dialogue passages and unconvincing characters.

    It's hard to comment on what type of game Age of Sails 2 is, simply because most of it doesn't appear to function.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Extras like a free, waypoint-based track editor add charm. The same thing goes for online car-swapping features. But between a Super Nintendo-era audio-library, limp-wristed vehicular duels, and snooze-inducing stages, it's too little, too late.

    It’s dull, looks bad, gets boring very quickly and is thoroughly overshadowed by its competition.

    Like many games of this style, there is some vague, half-guilty pleasure in the mechanical repetitiveness of the game's combat. But ultimately, X-Men is in the time-honored tradition of licensed games -- rushed, derivative, and well worth avoiding.

    In the spirit of generosity, we'll offer that there's about 30 minutes of entertainment to be had.

    Team Ninja has headed in exactly the wrong direction: more throwaway minigames, the same frustrating friends system, less focus on the volleyball. Instead, it winds up seeming just as superficial as the bosoms of its stars.

    A mediocre game at best. Graphically and sonically, it stinks but with a better framerate, these issues and enemy AI problems could have been forgiven.
    • 53 Metascore

    Never more than a cheap imitation of something great, thanks to a host of technical problems and an overall lack of polish.

    The robot construction is simplistic in the extreme, the arenas are forgettable, and the actual combat is the epitome of boredom.

    A few fighting scenes and some great cinema sequences don't do much to jazz up this tired shooter.

    You might not enjoy looking back on the repetitive track design and poor graphics, but you won't recoil in shock or anything. It's more likely that you won't be able to remember anything about this game at all.

    If you are looking for a playable, original strategy game then you're best off looking elsewhere. And if you want ants, well, just buy an Ant Farm.

    It's one of the better wrestling games available on any platform - except for the one unfortunate flaw that it gets sort of old after only a few hours of gametime.
