Big Bumpin', Pocketbike Racer and Sneak King - Rank F

I hope that image above summed up the sheer idiocy of these games. No screenshot is necessary. I picked them up because I have a perverse affinity for obscurely strange pop culture oddities, and the fact that all three could be had for $10. They're just plain awful, but there's a certain humor value to be enjoyed in the weirdness of the Burger King.

Big Bumpin' is a collection of bumper car mini-games. It's actually possible to have a few minutes of mindless fun with it, provided you have friends over. It works online, but I can't imagine that any group of friends would have enough copies to go around. Pocketbike Racer is a horridly wretched Mario Kart clone, but it's worth popping it in your Xbox once just to see the bizarre opening FMV, and for the strange sight of the Burger King racing against the Subservient Chicken and Brooke Burke(?).

The real prize here is Sneak King. You take on the role of the Burger King - while avoiding Metal Gear-esque cones of vision, you stalk hungry people, spring BK menu items on them, and finish off with a celebratory dance. The creepier you are (like popping out of a trash can) the more points you score. It's just a surreal cross-section of pop culture that is perversely enjoyable for an hour or so.

All three titles include the original Xbox and Xbox 360 versions on the same discs, and Achievement whores can flagellate themselves for the 200 points available on each game.
