    The levels are linear and dull, and for some reason you can only take cover in specified circles in the environment, which takes away any sense of reality or spontaneity. [Dec 2004, p.168]
  2. There's two cops, Mike and Marcus. Where's the two player simultaneous co-op mode?
  3. For non-gaming dorks out there looking for some amusement in this title, the sonic aspects of it are where it's at.
  4. 36
    There's a lot of utterly stupid crap in Bad Boys: Miami Takedown, and yet it's kind of enjoyable in an "I love watching car wrecks" kind of way.
  5. One of the worst action games of the last 10 years.
  6. It isn’t the worst game ever made, but that just means that it fails to achieve distinction even by its badness.
  7. 20
    It looks appalling, contains some absolutely egregious gameplay, and subjects the player to some downright execrable dialogue. Whatever it is, Bad Boys is nowhere near good.

    I was given this game for free, just to sell it to EB. This game blows hard. Don't even bother to waste your time on a rental!

    Unless you're aiming to collect a complete library of all the GC games there is really no reason to own this title, the 2 main characters fromUnless you're aiming to collect a complete library of all the GC games there is really no reason to own this title, the 2 main characters from the movie didn't lend their voice talents to even add some character to this terrible mess, I know most people say this is a waste of time and energy but I feel I have to expand on this.

    -The character models... I'm not sure how to describe them other than to say they look like the two main characters from the movie, if you were to ask a racist to draw them in 3d.
    -The controls.... 3 different sets of confusion right here, Sometimes it's 3rd person, sometimes it's first person, sometimes you are locked into cover scenes for boss fights which feel like they are an inch away from being a quick time event... but they're not, they are just the games first person controls but locked out of doing certain actions.
    -The objectives, the only way to get a good rank in the game is to shoot the weapons out of peoples hands to arrest them... however the AI is awful and it never offers a time when criminals are not holding their gun directly in front of their face, chances are 9 times out of 10 you're going to make brain trifle spray on the wall rather than hit the gun given how bad the controls are for this mess.
    -Difficulty - Nope, some area's are a joke for how easily you can just blast your way through then suddenly it seemed someone said "hey... ya know rather than making more content, we could just make the game really hard with no checkpoint system" so they did that instead, if you make 1 mistake you can lose so much health you are going to be in a spiral to death after some of the unavoidable damage, that means you are just wasting more time playing on knowing that you will be re-doing the whole stage again from the start. Just terrible.

    That's it really like I said, unless you're aim is the full collection of GC games, don't buy this, that said if you are aiming to collect them all, try to get this game wrapped in plastic, at least then there is less chance of the **** getting out of the box from this tiny disk of crap.
