    How does that happen?

    Mostly the name attachment.

    Without the superfluous "Baldur's Gate" title, its a boring hack and slash game that pales compared to other examples of the genre on both the ps2 and PC. With it, the standards are much, much higher.

    Like the reason dislike Deus Ex 2, except Deus Ex 2 is better for its genre than BG: DA is.

    Maybe on the PC, but not on the PS2. Not when it came out, anyway. It hit during the PS2's first year.

    Dynasty Warriors 2 was a ps2 release title.

    No I cannot say good-bye Halo you stupid moron, where is the multiplayer Biznotch. Wheres the game of the year award. The game is incredible but nothing compared to the classics like Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, or Halo. But really the only problem with this game is that the controls are wierd, but since the Gamecube controller is not designed for FPS I congratulate nintedo on the effort. Great Game, the zero is just to get the attention of the itiot who said it was better than Halo.

    Burnout Revenge

    Well I have to say I dont know what Ea was thinking. First they come out with Burnout 3 it was amazing, I love it sooo much, the crashes the sparkes everthing I like. When I saw the new one online and saw the videos I knew right of the back that it would not be good. I totaly agree with (Red Rose) a person that left a comment on this game. They just took the name and made a game and it was crap, I dont understand why people like this its sooo dumb, Ex, ok the cars look better I give them that much, Now I loved the 3 one because the sparks were sooo cool and great, now the sparks look sooooo fake its not even funny, I got a chance to play this and right of the back I crash in a wall and grind it and the sparks look so fake, The other think I hate is that now you can blow up as you are crashing haha thats soo dumb come on the 3 one you had to hit people in mid air or just hit them to get boost back now you can be lazy and just blow up. That is sooo lame. Other thing I dont like is how crash mode is, In the 3 one you had to aim and crash and then blow up and get a high score. NOw you can just drive into tracffic and hit them and just sit there as they some how blow up, like alll the cars blow up now thers noo real damage at all its like EA did not want to do crash scense showing damage and stuff and just made the cars blow up and turn into flames, to me that makes no sense and wish that nexts time if they decide to make an other one to bring back more realsic sparkes and better crash scenes, We can only hope. I give this game 3 because of its name and how the cover looks.

    there's not enough entertainingly bad reviews, most are just one-liners.

    Feels like it’s just a block of jello. It could have been molded into something new, but instead, Capcom just left it as is, a block. It’s uninspired, generic, and there is no reason to play it.

    P.N. 03 won't keep anyone interested for more than a couple of hours. The longer you continue to enjoy the game after that is directly proportional to the time you spent watching reality TV shows.
    Blue Falcon gave it a3:
    1st thing I would say about this game is the character is awesome. She's stylish, deadly, graceful, unique, and even hot. The HUGE thing that ruins the game is the repetitiveness. Both the levels and enemies are all the same - it's ridiculous. Imagine playing Super Mario Bros level 1-1 with only koopas as enemies. As you advance you're still playing level 1-1 but with more koopas. That's what it's like.

    Participating in this thread makes me sad.

    Im sick of seeing Mario kick bowser's ass. Yes besides that this game is very bad. I rented it and i couldn't stand it!!! It got a 4 because i thought it had amazing graphics........dont buy this game it's like foreign Dilbert for preschoolers.

    Fremen warrior gave it a 3:
    I liked this game but I was very disappointed. It wasn't like the other mario games, you don't get to use koopa shells and throw them at stuff or get a fire flower. It just didn't seem like a mario game at all much like Luigi's mansion. At least that had boo's but it still wasn't a classic mario game. Am I the only person that was disappointed?

    So just what is a "foreign Dilbert for preschoolers."?

    I don't get how can ANYONE call the characters "loveable". Our "hero" is a moron with a never-ending need to behave EMO even before the stupidiest of situations. I recognize that the way on how you battle is certainly out of the box and entertaining once you learn how to handle it (it's learning curve is WAAAAAAAAAAAY long and hard). In fact, it is it's only redeeming point. The art sucks (way to much Hip-Hop crap, in my opinion and it's not original at all in the style itself. Pointy hair anyone?) and the music is downright annoying. Specially the one you ARE FORCED TO LISTEN FOR THE MOST PART OF THE GAME, the one with the girl singing which enters in a f*cking endless loop. This is, by no means, the best DS game. Excelent gameplay, nothing more. NOTHING more.

    Certainly not as bad as some of the comments on other games.

    To be fair, I broke a controller at that bit in Max Payne 1. I mean shit, I was playing it on PS2 and must have fell off that baby blood trail at least 10 times.

    Does not match the old TF... got rid of grenades, faking death, demopacks, and much more. The maps seem to be shorter and the over all feel just leaves me unsatisfied. All these years of waiting for this? I say take it back and maybe in a year or two more you may just have the right stuff.

    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: 74 (netjak)

    Unfortunately, they reviewed the GBA version, with Four Swords tacked on. Four Swords was what drew every complaint.

    Edit to avoid double post:
    Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Average: 90. Low: 58 (XenGamers)
    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.

    Guess somebody never actually, you know, changed the camera view. Or touched the throttle. I spend most of my time slowing down so I don't ram into the back of enemy craft.

    Average user score is 8.5.

    Say, who here likes Killer7?
    While it has an amazing cell-shaded, anime-influenced look that’s both stylish and striking, it also has totally unnatural and unnecessarily complicated controls that make it impossible to play. (40)
    It's hard to say what it is concerned about: the story has all the coherence of a fever dream, whoever wrote the dialogue must have spent his or her formative years huffing rubber cement, and there's more compelling art direction in the printed manual. [...] Presumably the developers decided they could disguise the minimalist environments and dull monster designs with cel-shading, but this effect doesn't save the graphics any more than wrapping kitty litter in cellophane takes off the stink. It isn't post-modern, or stylized, it's just dull. The aural environment isn't much better: most of the time there's little but your own footsteps and gunshots to listen to, save for the occasional irritating cackle or inconsistent music. [...] Killer 7 is certainly off-beat, but it's on the lonely side of mediocre, and even a rental will ultimately feel like wasted money. Capcom's put out a lot of good games: do yourself a favor and grab one of them instead. (30)
    Sure, the game is grim, dark and violent. But it's also the most self-indulgent piece of junk that's come across our desks since Felicity: The Complete Series. In case you're still curious, you curious freak, the game stars the Killer 7, a merry band of weirdo assassins. Use all seven to navigate levels, battle enemies, solve puzzles, etc. It's an adventure game of the point-and-click variety. At best, playing the game is like having someone shout in your ear for 15 hours straight. At worst, it's like getting a high colonic with balsamic vinegar. (0)

    Picking a class and then doing what that class does is your only real contribution to the team. Not much direct interaction with other players.

    The only reason you should own this game is you bought the Orange Box. Graphics are entertaining for the first time playing but graphics alone aren't enough to make a game. Reasons against (or for, depending on your age) are simple: Valve took a game like DoD that is class based, removed all teamwork required aspects such as capturing any given point, dumbed down any gameplay they could find, and then asked the creator of Loony Toons to be the head graphical designer. If you are on the fence about this game, just imagine a Buggs Bunny version of Call of Duty, minus any objectives.

    And this guys just wrong.

    Perhaps the same can be said about all team based FPS!

    That's actually absolutely wrong. I've been playing a clan on the PC Gamer server for a long time, and just because your random servers don't use team work doesn't mean the game itself doesn't require good team work. Go play a good server with people who know how to work together, you'll be really amazed.

    Favorite game of all time is Shenmue, but it has great reviews. The lowest Critic review was 60, but the average was 89.

    Rotten Tomatoes has recently allowed people to comment on reviews. They usually fall into the category of "What movie were you watching? You obviously didn't get it." and "You thought Clone Wars was good, what the fuck do you know?"

    It's completely silly to argue with critics. The latest Batman inspired this legion of superfans that would all but punch you in the face if you even questioned the greatness of that movie. You should all aspire to never be that person, ever.

    Seriously. Look at this.

    Actually the mention of bad Halo reviews made me think of this:
    (Note: I have not played these games since they are rated "M" and aren't allowed on the Fellowship U campus, so I am basing this mini-review on Secular media reports.)
    The Halo series is a very popular first person shooter game that first appeared on the original Xbox. The single-player campaign is set in space on a giant ring-planet (that is why it is misleadingly called "halo", it has nothing to do with angels or anyone holy) where human soldiers are battling aliens for possession of the halo. The player controls the Master Chef who in a surprise twist turns out to be more than just a military cook... he's also a super soldier (I think this was the plot of a Steven Seagal movie I saw before I was born again, only that was set on a Navy ship and he fought terrorists instead of aliens. But it's the same general idea.) It's a war game, so there's lots of violence, but it's against aliens (God hasn't said anything yet about aliens, so I guess that's morally acceptable for now).
    However, the alien forces are called "the Covenant" and are depicted as having strong religious values and a desire for Salvation, so they are undoubtedly a reference to Christians. The Halo planet itself is probably a reference to the rainbow God gave as a sign of His Covenant with us (Gen. 9:12-17), which means the game's objective of keeping Halo from the aliens is really about destroying God's relationship with His creation. Typical for the Secular media, the Christians are alien bad guys and must be either led away from God or killed. Also, there's a naked woman in the game, only she's a computer and translucent, but I'm told you can still totally see stuff.
    Where the Halo series gets really bad is in its online play, which allows teams of players to fight each other to capture the flag or other objectives. Unlike in single-player, here the players are trying to kill other humans (who are actual real people, not just AIs), desensitizing them to the murder of their friends and classmates (although the games are rated "M" most players are underage). Players swear and use blasphemies constantly in the voice chat, but that's not the worst part. When a player kills another player, he goes to the corpse and does something called "tea bagging". I'm not going to describe this since it's gross, but, according to Skeet, it's something that homosexuals do to each other. Why would they do this in a game!? (That's not the only homosexual content. The human soldiers are referred to as "Spartans" -- the real Spartans were notorious homosexuals. Come to think of it, homosexuals have also stolen the rainbow symbol from Christians and are using it to separate people from their God by leading them astray into the "Gay lifestyle". Maybe Bungie included "tea bagging" to further their anti-Covenant theme into the multiplayer campaigns.) For violence, nudity, swearing, promoting homosexual activities and promoting the destruction of the Covenant, the Halo series gets ZERO CROSSES.
