What a sad waste of monkey money - 0 stars
on 2 September 2005
I too like other reviewers have also played the prior 2 fantastic games on the game cube and was eagerly awaiting this release for the PS2. What a disappointment. The game is virtually unplayable, the graphics are appalling and really pixelated - shocking for a PS2 platform - and just doesn't seem able to keep up. The edges of circles and platforms seem rushed, like graphics from the first tomb raider game all boxy & not smooth like the Cube version. The timing is dreadful, I was clearly in 4th position in party game race mode, but apparently I was 1st for a good 10-15 seconds. This happened a lot. The sound is worse than dreadful, not able to keep up with game play and graphics, sounding like someone screwing up tin foil in some areas (not my speakers). How can they get it so wrong?
I cannot express my disappointment enough. The Nintendo version is class and is one the best games I have played in years but this is an embarrassment and one I will not be keeping.
Nintendo, Sega, Sony or Microsoft:- whomever is responsible for this poor excuse of road kill you should be shot.
You get no rating (ignore the one star at top I had to put that in to post review) for trashing a perfectly good game.
I want my money back. Purchase at your peril.
