This is a fun game. I really didn't give it much of chance because it's not the type of game I enjoy. I played with Definition, and Sir Earl and we enjoyed ourselves for a while and then it was like " put Halo back in."

Overall: This is a good party game for when you have friends over, but it is not a very good game to play on your own. being a launch game, it has no XBOX live access, which is another downside. Overall, this would probably be a pretty good purchase as it probably costs about $5.
Gameplay: This game is kind of similar to mario party without the board. there are lots of mini games to play on your way to being the best. there is a small selection of characters to choose from, but it is enough. you can play with up to 3 friends and duke it out to see who rules. The wide variety of mini-games is a definite +.
Graphics: The visuals aren't great, but it was a launch game, so you can't blame it too much for that. The character models aren't great either, but it is an arcade style game, so I doubt they were trying to be realistic.
Sound: some of the characters like zach can get rediculously annoying with some of the things they say after they win a round. best way to prevent this: only win with non-annoying characters and don't let the annoying ones win.

Overall: Fuzion Frenzy is a party game that can be enjoyable at any age. It's not like Mario Party, but it's definately fun. I questioned the game when my brother brought this game home. However after a while it seemed to be a game that anyone could play. Variety of games to choose from.
Gameplay: I like how there is a variety of choices. New games that aren't seen anywhere, and they are all fun. Just watch out some of the games are sometimes addicting.
Graphics: Not a graphic game, but it's not a game I feel needs to be. It is fun to play, and its easy to see so it all works out.
Sound: Sound goes with the game great. Really couldn't complain here. I guess with custom soundtrack it could be better?
Suggestions: Make another one, game doesn't look fun but I think it is.

Overall: Fusion Frenzy is a party game that allows users to participate in many multiplater minigames with AI or there friends. Very easy for anyone to pick up but also very enjoyable for all ages!
Gameplay: Pick up and play is the motto for this game. Each minigame is different so virutally anyone can be good at them. There is no storyline at all but still a great party game.
Graphics: The graphics are decent, by todays standard they are nowhere near the top. They could have done much better with the level designs and models.
Sound: The sound is very unique. I guess it does fit well with the style of game this is, but it is very unique from what you are probably used to for an Xbox game.
Suggestions: Give it some online capabilities next time.

Overall: Surprisingly, I enjoyed the demo on my Halo disc more than the actual game. But it is one of the best party games out there for the XBOX.
Gameplay: Simple, and easy enough for everyone to enjoy. All of the mini games are interesting and very interactive.
Graphics: Beautiful to look at. The lighting is impressive but not the best looking game for the box. The characters are all unique and look nice.
Sound: Ok sound. the music is what stands out the most. nothing too impressive though. it could have been better in this department.

Overall: Good game. Great multiplayer game. Very very easy. The only game I can play with my sister(she can't use both analog sticks too hard for her)
Gameplay: NO storyline but you gotta love the great multiplayer. A load of good Mini games a great game for beginers.
Graphics: Good graphics for it's day. I like how the cages look such as in the Sumo mini game. I wouldn't reccomend this game for an extreme good graphics game though.
Sound: Weird... Weird... Weird... Sound. The music is really weird but some how good. It sort of jst flows around with the game. Also the players voices are cool because they range in the way the sound.
Suggestions: Make the same game with a storyline. More characters and more mini games! This is a good game though.

Overall: How can you not love this game???? Funnest multiplayer game that i've played since Halo, and it reminds me alot of Mario party for the KiddyCube. There isn't much to say about it, except that it is a game where 4 different players compete in various challenges, and most of these challenges are AWESOME! I picked it up for 10 bucks at EB, and its a great pickup. I would recommend it, just because of the great multiplayer. If you don't have any friends or siblings, dont get it. But its a must buy for those of us who have friends :)
Gameplay: Hmm, where to start? The gameplay is VERY similar to Mario Party, except that there are less characters to choose from. My favorite mini game has to be twisted system. It is a simple game, as most of them are, but it is INTENSE! The thing that you run around moves faster and faster and you have to dodge bars everywhere! With 3 other people screaming beside you, it is a really great time. I just can't say enough about this underrated game.
Graphics: The is the games only downfall. The characters are simply done, cartoonish, if you will. There isn't much to the backrounds, they are just simply drawn out. I don't konw if they could have done a better job, since it was such a simplistic game. But they did a good job at what they attempted to do, so that gets them a 3.5 in my book.
Sound: Not much sound in this game. Characters make noices depending on this game. There is backround music during the games, but it is typical for this type of game. Not a very good quality, but its the basic music that we all know and love from Mario Party.
Suggestions: MAKE IT LIVE! Imagine this game on Live. It would be cheap, and intense! That would be awesome.

Overall: This was the Xbox's anser to the Mario Party craze. Its a decent attempt and does provide fun with its mini games if you have 4 players.
Gameplay: If your by your self i give it a 3.0 but if your at a party i give it a 5 so i averged it out. The gameplay is all mini games and the controlls are simple yet responsive. You should get a few kicks out of playing FF.
Graphics: Average graphics, character models, and level textures. This game wasnt made to impress you on the visual aspect.
Sound: This game has all the necessary sound effects that is needed for a game like this. It is the generic bonks and whaps but does the job.

Overall: This game is so fun to play. It seems like a little kids game. If it is, then i am a little kid i guess. I love it. Its so incredibly fun with lots of people.!
Gameplay: The gameplay is so cool. They have a million different "mini-games". Its so cool. My favorite "mini-game" is TWISTED SYSTEM. There are other awesome ones too. They are well thought out.
Graphics: The graphics are very cartoony, which they are meant to be, so its very cool. I really like them. Even throughout the games, when they get faster the graphics are smooth.
Sound: The sounds are cool, the cartoonness voices go right along with the graphics. They are so funny, we make bets over this game....
Suggestions: Fuzion Frenzy 2, only with more games.

Date reviewed: December 9, 2003.

Overall: well you have 6 characters to choose from i believe, i cant remember rightnow, but around that much, there are about 42 mini games that are very competitive, from button mashing to game to have at a party. what i really like about this game is you can join when you want to in a middle of a mini game or quit and let the computer take over. its so convenient
Gameplay: you have about 40 mini games to play against the computer or your freinds etc. up to 4 playeres, and there is team play sometimes.
Graphics: i thought the graphics on character models and environments were very smooth and i couldnt find any jagged areas. water looks cool
Sound: sounds are great, you hear the shouts from the characters clearly and the announcer, also the sound effects are original to me
Suggestions: not much, just add more mini games for more fun!

Overall: This game is good of you've got some friends over. It can get pretty boring when you're just playing against a computer. The competitive edge is really what makes this game an OK buy.
Gameplay: Gameplay is nice and simple. Controls are simple enough and to be good at this game u just have to be a quick thinker.
Graphics: This game doesn't have the best graphics. They could be omproved. It's not too bad though so it really doesn't matter
Sound: Sounds are kind of interesting. Character's voices are not all that great. You can use your own music anyway so it's all good.

Overall: Overall this game could of been better. There aren't enough options to keep me going back to it. But it is good for when you got some friends over at your tired of playing Rainbow 6.
Gameplay: The controls are fairly simple. Before each match the loading screen allows you to see the controls for that particular game. Overall gameplay was good.
Graphics: Obvisioly not met to the Xbox standards but, not horrible either. I like the way some of the sprites were used, you have to see it to know what im talking about.
Sound: Some of the techno background music was ok. I usually dont favor the techno music but, it was fairly decent. Sound effects were average too.
Suggestions: Add more options to the game and better singleplayer modes

Overall: Huge slection of mini-games packed or should I say fusioned to bring you one heck of a party game frenzy.
Its one heck of a fun multiplayer game and even if yo9u have nobody to play against, single-player is still a load of fun when playing against the CPU.
Gameplay: There are various mini-games to choose from and liklihhod is that you will like at least a few. Each mini game is very simple with rules and require few buttons to manage thoughout its level. Its a game good for any age, but more enjoyable for younger ages.
Graphics: For its type of game it looked good. It was colorful and alive. It was just as fun to sit by and watch someone play as it was to play because the design will give you a seizure. LoL!~
Sound: All the sounds were as good as they needed to be for such a game. And of course it used one of XBOX's best features: the ability for custom soundtracks. Mentioning the having or lacking of that tool is always something big on sound for me. Good for this game to utilize such a tool... =P
Suggestions: I could picture this game being good fun on Live...Take the next(assuming there will be) fuzion frenzy LIVE!

Overall: all the minigames are the same. Collect orbs and smash opponens. I rented this game thinking the demo was fun but found only repetitiveness.
Gameplay: Two buttons is pretty easy to learn, and also leaves you with not much to do in the game except jump and attack.
Graphics: Graphics are respectable and allow you to clearly distinguish objects. Camera angles are good and allow everyone to see whats happening.
Sound: The music is annoying as well as the anouncer. The voices are as out of place as Yu Gi Oh. That kid is like 10 and sounds like he's 30.
Suggestions: Make a better varity of minigames like in Mario Party.

Overall: Overall 5 cause i wanted it to have more games. It had lots but i'm greedy and wanted more. But good game still.
Gameplay: I like this game a lot. Like Mario Party in a way but more futuristic and exciting. Not bad for Xbox's first crack at this kinda game.
Graphics: Visually it's good but there really isn't a lot of detail in the game. Smooth designs though and interesting environments.
Sound: Haven't played this for awhile now so i can't really remember the sounds too well. But for the most part it suited the game well. Not too amazing though.

Date reviewed: October 30, 2003.

Overall: Not as fun as the Mario party games in the past, but the only party game available on the Xbox, and because of that this game is probably a must have.
Gameplay: You get constant comments about Xbox games needing a multi-player game, this game needs a single player game where you can go through levels, or unlock characters, or give your player more abilities (faster, stronger).
Graphics: Not great, your looking at the game from above, and so the graphics are good, but it looks like your players are little dots running around.
Sound: Good soundtrack, but you can add your own, which was a strong point in the xbox. Players yelps and grunts do get a little repetative, so crank up the music.

Gameplay: the games are really easy to control. the water levels are a little harder but give a little time and they are easy to control.
Graphics: it takes the XBOX advantages & makes a great looking part game. i think one of the best looking games & it was a launch title!
Sound: the music is fun to listen to at first but after a while u start to mute it.

Gameplay: Kinda varies depending on if you have 4 players or not.... I'd give it a 5 with 4 players, but with only one player, a 2...
Graphics: Nice graphics. Very smooth gameplay, nice explosions and such.
Sound: Music? Boring if I can even remember any...

We need a taunt button...
Suggestions: Hmm... unlockables... an even harder mode, hard is still too easy. Way too many of the repetitive games. Seems like there are about 5 game ideas floating about and used 10 different ways...

Overall: This game really is something out of the ordinary. It is a great party game with over 45 wonderful mini-games. It is what you would expect from a party game only better and best to play as multi player the only thing wrong is that the games are repetitive.
Gameplay: It has some very good games and some not very good for example Sumo is a very good and addictive game. All the controls are easy and all similar, It has great characters and fun tournaments.
Graphics: This game has surprisingly good visual, It is better than alto of other games!!!!
Sound: The sound is great with a good soundtrack and the voices of each characters are wonderful. They have done some great sounds with this game.

Overall: Fuzion Frenzy is action-party game developed by Blitz Games and Microsoft. It features over 40 mini games, as well as a great tournament mode and a cool multiplayer mode for 1 to 4 players. It is a game with average visuals, a great soundtrack, and simple gameplay. Fuzion Frenzy is a game for all ages and for all members of the family. Fuzion Frenzy is the only available party game on Xbox. It isn't too serious (for 17 year olds) and it isn't too childish (for 8 year olds). Fuzion Frenzy is definitely not a typical Mario Party game, although it is a game with party action and humor at the same time. Fuzion Frenzy isn't a game that I would spend all my time playing, because after sometime it could get boring. It isn't worth buying, because a demo of it, is just as good.
Gameplay: In tournament mode, you go through different areas each with several rounds (mini-games). The winner is the player with the most points. Then there is the more simple mode, called mini-game mode, where you can just play any mini-game you want as many times as you want. There are different controls for each mini-game. The objectives of each mini-game are explained clearly. Some are fun, others are boring, some are easy, and others are hard. The objective of each mini-game varies. There are a few characters to chose from and each mini-game can be played from 1 to 4 players.
Graphics: Some details in Fuzion Frenzy might be impressive. However, the overall visuals and graphics are not that good. The good thing is that they don't really have to be, because it's just a simple action-party game and not a highly detailed 3D shooter.
Sound: The sound effects and noises in the game are quite cool. The soundtrack and music in the game fits in well with the whole point of the game. It's also cool to see what each characters has to say after specific mini-games or tournaments.
Suggestions: A sequel to Fuzion Frenzy would be pointless. Although, I do suggest an online version of Fuzion Frenzy, so that people can play it online with other people all over the world. A few improvements in visuals and sound might have been necessary, but everything else is exciting to play.

Overall: If you have parties a lot, have lots of friends come over, have several family memembers, or just are not that great at video games and looking for a game to play then this is definetely for you! This game is easy to master and fun to play with lots of people! I really reccomend!

4.5 - Really fun and addicting but not perfect.
Gameplay: Some games are better than others. You will notice the good ones right away (ex. SUMO!) and you will keep coming back for more. Personally I like playing just minigames of my choice but the actual game with scoring is really fun if you are competitve and don't want to pick the games or want it to be a suprise.

4.0 - Most games are really fun but some just suck.
Graphics: Not much to say here other than nothing great and nothing really bad. No really high detail but no really plain levels. Overall it is decent.

3.0 - Little above average. Nothing too special.
Sound: Decent sound. Same as visuals not the best but not horrible. Some of the songs are catchy but who cares when you have custom soundtracks.

3.5 - Decent but custom soundtracks!
Suggestions: Make a Fuzion Frenzy 2 with the following Improved Audio/Visuals
-More characters
-Online Play with Xbox Live and scoreboards in games like Twisted System
-Even more games. Keep the good ones from the original
-New gameplay types/challenges

Overall: A fun party game to play with the family or friends in short doses. At first glance it appears to be more of a kiddie game but it does have several games that are very challenging and fun to play. This is not a game to play by yourself though as it becomes boring rather quickly. This game is perfect for someone who is looking for a game that they can play with their kids as well as their adult friends and have a good time.
Gameplay: There several different types of mini games ranging from tanks to tron like vehicles to running around on foot. There is even a game type similar to the Konami Dance Dance Revolution games which can be very challenging. The controls are very simple with most of the games only requiring the use of the left stick and one or two buttons. Making it so pretty much any body can pick up a controller and jump in with no problem.
Graphics: Nothing awesome nor anything bad here too look at. Everything chugs along smoothly and the colors are bright and vibrant. Most of the time your so busy playing that you don't have time to notice if the graphics are good or not.
Sound: The music gets annoying but luckily this game supports user soundtracks like more games should. The character voices are real annoying but luckily they rarely say anything except at the end of a match.

Overall: FUZION FRENZY is very under-rated in my opinion. there is nothing mind
blowing about the graphics.... but. that is not what the game is about really. its a fun party game.... and its meant to be played with 2-4 people. the more the better. There are so many different games in this thing..... I have had it for 4 months...probably played it every other weekend and parties at my place.... and I STILL havent played all the levels there are. plus...its easy to pick up....anyone can try it and have a really good time. you dont have to be a gamer.

Gameplay: my only other complaint is that you ALWAYS have to play the same level at
the end of a tournament game.... and....thats kinda lame...since its like everyones least favorite part of the game. but. its a small drawback compared to how much fun you have playing the rest of it.

Graphics: One great part of this game is that ALL 4 players are on the same playing
screen at the same time. THere is no "spliting" the screen. the
environments fit all 4 playeds (from a high camera angle) and it totally
works. I seriously wish there were more games like this.
I got Whacked thinking it would be like this.... but the multi player stuff is really not as good....(that game splits the screen and ther eis no "tournament....only single round games). Fuzion Frenzy is much better than Whacked. I dont know what else to say. if you want to have soime fun with friends and you are tired of blowing the crap out of eachother on halo.... try this game. its simple and its really fun. not since mariokart/hots
Sound: sound if a little bit of a drawback. there is like.....one sing that repeats forever. its kind of funny in a way (because you will find yourself saying "hip hop you dont stop" to your friends for the next 3 months) but at the same time....they could have recorded a few more songs.
:) Still. sound is not really what the game is about.

Overall: Great game can play for hours. Good multiplayer game. Tons of mini games. 6 characters. Compares to mario party....but better!
Gameplay: Theres tons of mini games with pretty e-z controls and most of the games have their own originality and you'll want to play some of them over and over!
Graphics: Pretty good lots of color but on a couple of the games the views really suck but on most of them there pretty good and when you get used to it its fine.
Sound: Really good sound effects fireworks have a really good sound and the music is catchy. Overall really good.
Suggestions: #2 with more characters more games and a little more depth to the game if possible. As good as it is theres no way i would have bought it for $50 but i got it for $15 and its now 20 so id buy it.

Gameplay: good gameplay, pretty straight forward, buttons are pretty easy to learn especially as you develop favorite games
Graphics: not that great, but what do you expect from a party game, the graphics do their intention and they actually are pretty good
Sound: decent sound, although some of the voices get annoying after they win a match or even during gameplay, but making your own album on their makes up for it in every way

Overall: As party games go, this is one of the funnest. FF is a tough game to rate, because it is so good when you have 4 players, but it bites as a single player game. For purposes of this review, I'm rating it with the perspective of multi-player as that is the games main intention. So, if you have 3 friends, then by all means get this game. Especially considering it is a cheap title (I got mine for $20 at BB)
Gameplay: There are about 50 mini games that make up FF. Most are a blast (I like Sumo, Rhythm, and Victim the best). There is the occassional stinker (I don't like the tanks or some of the other "military" games). The controls are very easy, and the game is simple for beginners. This is truly one of the best party games ever. It's a blast to get your friends together and play.
Graphics: The graphics are what you would expect from a game like this, and work perfectly. If you are expecting it to look like DOA3, Halo, or Splinter Cell then you'll be disappointed.
Sound: Contrary to what some others have said, I like the hyped up announcer, and enjoy screaming "Fuzion Frenzyyyyy" with him. I really, really hate a few of the characters voices. Dub ("Your baseline needs tind Zack are the most annoying. The rest of the sound effects are good, and it gets bonus points for being able to play your own soundtracks.
Suggestions: A few more characters would be nice. Do away with the tank and other "military" games.

Overall: When you read this review, please keep in mind I am rating it based on MULTIPLAYER gameplay ONLY. The single player "game" will keep you occupied for as much time as it takes to open the box. Quite honestly, I feel it's just "filler". With that said, let's get on with the review.
Gameplay: What happens when you mix a couple of your best buddies, grocery bags of junk food, and Fusion Frenzie? You guessed it! HOURS of pure fun. The game is packed to the rim with many distinctly different minigames. There are enough that you probably won't play the same minigame twice for a good length of time (unless you are like me and you go ahead and select your favorites every time).

Most of the games take place on futuristic landscapes, and while the controls vary for each game, a helpful screen will show during load times to make sure everyone is on the same page. Even parents and people who may not usually play videogames might want to give Fusion Frenzie a whirl. The gameplay is just right that competition will be fierce amongst friends, and friendly enough for the whole family. The only way this game could be improved is to make it online with downloadable mini games. Still, great gameplay none-the-less.

(Note that points were deducted for an apparent lack of a REAL single player game--that's worth your time to play)
Graphics: With these so-called "party games", usually visuals take a backseat. While it's clear that the developers cut some corners, overall the graphics were surprisingly good (especially in the cooling-rod level). Water effects were also nicely done. In comparison with other Party games on the other consoles, this game would get a 5.0 score. Comparing this with other titles on the XBox would probably yield a 4.
Sound: The fact that this game supports custom soundtracks really helps. The only problem is that this feature was VERY poorly implemented. The track will only play during the level (which doesn't last, in most cases, as long as HALF of the sountrack). After the level is finished, the sountrack will stop. This can be such a pain that you might eventually just mute the television and bring out the old CD player for music. This isn't where the sound problems end for Fusion Frenzie. The character voices (especially Zac's) can really get on your nerves. Many of the same catch phrases are simply repeated over and over. Audio could've definately stood some improvement.
Suggestions: Downloadable minigames.

Overall: Okay the game had a great idea, but it didn't go very well. I probally see no time and effort for this game not that great.
Gameplay: The game is to kid easy and gets boring after you win every game.
Sound: Basically there is no sound and it can be very annoying most of the times.
Suggestions: Still no Mario Party.

Overall: This is a multiplayer game. If you don't plan on playing it w/ 2 other people, then you may want to reconsider buying it. Part of it's appeal is that it's cheap ($20), the other great thing is all the games are easy to learn. The hardest controls are 4-buttons or 1 control stick and 2 buttons. Thus, my mom and dad can play it when they come over. As a 1 player game it's a 2.0, as a 2 player game, it's a 2.5 or 3. Three or more people....
Gameplay: Game play is easy to learn. There are many mini-games: some suck, some are very entertaining. You notice that many of the games seem very similar to other games from the past: DDR (today), Tron (80's), Snakes (80's). Other than the stupid bug smashing games, it's pretty fun party games.
Graphics: The graphics are pretty good. They stick w/ a cartoony theme, so nothing is too special. The environments are diverse and very fitting.
Sound: How much sound is needed in a party game?? I'd like to see some more taunts or something during the game, instead of just after them. The sounds were average.
Suggestions: During the tournament mode, you should allow a custom list of excluded games. I hate the bug smashing game, and never want to see them in my tournament games.

Overall: this is the ultimate party game, right? wrong !! it's like a game boy game that somehow jumped to a console. if you want to have a multiplayer party, get Halo, Unreal, Ghost Recon, Medal of Honor ... if you want same screen muliplayer get Hunter or BG. and for everyone that rated this high: the rating system completely breaks down if bad games like this get a 4 and great games get a 4.5 or 5; you gotta use the entire scale !!
Gameplay: this may be the games only redeeming quality. there are over 40 mini-games that are unique from any other game you'll play. however, a majority of them aren't fun and you won't play more than once. the rest suffer too much from the video and audio sound to constantly play.
Graphics: i don't think the development team put a whole lot of time in here. this is just standard graphics. a lot of games suffer from the lack of a real 3rd dimension. you'll think you're close to an object, but you're not, this is part of the gameplay problem too.
Sound: annoying!! the announcer is terrible, sounds like some richard dawson wanna be. the music is not rememberable at all and the sound effects are almost non-existant
