    It misses on all counts beyond the purely visual - it's not similar enough to the movie to attract Shrek fans, it's not playable enough to attract platform game aficionados, and it's too difficult for the kids to enjoy once they've stopped laughing at the fart jokes.

    This is only a bad computer game, after all, even if it is one that is broken in almost every fundamental way and is an uncanny combination of tedium and insane frustration.

    The good news is that you'll have some fun with NFL Tour, especially with friends. But the joy will be short lived when you realize that the feature set is comparable to the original NBA Jam -- just pick a team and play. It's a thin package that comes off as more of a $30 budget title than a full-fledged effort.

    As is so often the case in this genre, the minigames miss as many pitches as they hit. We'd actually recommend the Xbox predecessor over this one, if it didn't suffer horrible performance problems when running on the 360.

    It's a rap-flavored karaoke program with a minor gameplay element and nowhere near enough songs. It's a missed opportunity... and that's whack, yo.

    The game's controls and user-interface are clean and intuitive: the analog stick and four face buttons are all that's needed to play, and the unobtrusive onscreen icons give you necessary information when you need it.

    An enjoyable diversion at a reasonable price.

    Is it playable and engaging? Yes, up to a point. But as a pure game it trips over its own feet more than once...For hardcore movie-lovers only.

    It's an ugly, boring and vastly unoriginal RTS.

    An intriguing idea, but it deserves a better game than this.

    There's no motivation for the player to keep going, no tension that builds, no interest in the new weapons, no in-depth strategies, in fact it's just a generally vacuous experience.

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

    If you're a big fan of The Weakest Link and have posters of Anne Robinson on your wall, then I guess it's fair to say you should seek psychiatric help – er, sorry I meant you should definitely consider buying The Weakest Link.

    The hell of the game is that the environmental puzzle setups look pretty good -- climb the wall, lash onto the nearest outcropping, swing to clamber chainlink fences, etc. It's just a shame the game actively fights your ability to navigate them.

    It's like a melted snowman -- something that could've been good, but instead turned out to be a goopy pile of mush.

    So-so graphics and pretty dull gameplay, but it does have a fairly decent physics model that makes it fun to play...at least for a short time.

    You shouldn’t be buying Combat Zone for its graphics, or the sound. You should really be getting this one for its gameplay. Thankfully, it does not disappoint in this respect, nor in the sharpness of the AI exhibited therein.

    A short-lived single-player mode combined with repetitive multiplayer gameplay make this game a title destined for the bargain bin, rather than greatness.

    Too dull and repetitive for the hardcore gamer, and yet too hard and unrewarding for young children.

    As generic and forgettable as the game's name.

    More like somebody's high-school programming project than an actual commercial game. And even then, it's only worth a D.

    Because of its shallow combat and poor presentation, the game loses its thrill very quickly for anyone not a devotee of the subject matter.

    Not only is this title sorely lacking for those kinds of innovative features, but it just doesn't compete with even the original "Midtown Madness" for gameplay and graphical variety.

    The ridiculous frustration in the early levels will deplete most gamers' patience.

    Talking of light, there are several periods playing as Rick that you'll be inching forward down rocky tunnels with virtually no illumination to help you and the 3D map that you can cut to when you're feeling lost is worse than useless.
