    The simple fact is that a dodgy camera, dubious controls, unspectacular visuals, repeated falling to your death and almost constant load breaks have all but ruined what should have been a brilliant game.

    It's a real shame that for every flicker of promise Boogie shows, there are twice as many setbacks just around the corner. For a karaoke/dancing merger, this is nowhere near as fun as it should be and for all the noise it makes, EA's Boogie just doesn't have the substance to succeed.

    Herbie Rescue Rally might entertain the kids for a bit, but they'll likely grow frustrated with the collisions and rather boring tracks that fail to deliver the excitement promised by the packaging.

    Even if you have too much time and money, Legendary still isn't worth a purchase.

    Maybe it's because I just don't like the main character, maybe it's because the story is dafter than my opening paragraph, maybe it's because it's a third rate GTA wannabe. In any case, this one should be avoided unless you really liked the first one, although this is actually a step back from the original.

    Seasoned gamers will find very little of interest here, regardless of how massive a Harry Potter fan you are (personally I love the books and the films).

    A classic example of a great concept that doesn't live up to its potential; there are some very interesting ideas on display but, like the vastness of space itself, they remain largely unexplored.

    At just £2.39 Ice Road Truckers will provide you with a couple of hours of inexpensive and inoffensive racing fun, but while it’s certainly not a game that will leave you feeling cold it’s also not one that will give you Goosebumps either.

    Despite its flaws, The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning on the GBA does offer a decent handheld-sized bit of side-scrolling platformer action, looking and sounding pretty good in the process. But disappointingly the game comes and goes in the blink of an eye, lasting only around two hours tops with no replay value to speak of.

    Trivial Pursuit is a potentially good game that's been brought down by some pretty major flaws.

    If the developers had made more use of the Wii's unique controllers and cranked up the graphics, I could have given this a better score. But, like ordering a Mixed Vegetable Soup at my local Chinese takeaway, I'm going to have to give Legend of the Dragon a number five.

    I came into Rugby 06 with an open mind, I was hoping for the FIFA engine with rugby elements and I was let down.

    Clive Barker's Jericho is as run of the mill as you'll find in a next-gen game.

    A simple game of Hearts and nothing more.

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix could have been so much better - the graphics are pretty good, the sound is passable but grates quickly and the mini-games are fun for a short while. However, the gameplay is tedious, the AI is glitchy and the plotline and speech are compressed.

    Despite some great presentation and a number of nice touches, it's ultimately extremely hard to recommend You're in the Movies to anyone.

    And while the graphics are fun, the translation into 3D has been totally mishandled and lost the whole appeal of the gameplay.

    A reasonable game that shows off every weakness of the DS and every technical deficiency - the under-powered graphics, the limited audio, the lack of full analog controls and the impact of the screen size on the ability to use the bottom screen for precise controls. But the gameplay is also just plain fun.

    Unless you love poorly done, "edgy" scenes of death, or you really, really like shooting things, The Punisher is a let down in almost every aspect and is easily buried by the quality of similar titles like "Red Dead Revolver."

    There's old-school, and then there's just old. Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek feels like one of those antique PC games that you occasionally find beneath your computer desk, lost amid a powdery mess of thick, gray dust and cheap, flimsy CD cases.

    Call me nostalgic, but even with Untamed's officially licensed music, the racing sponsors and celebrity endorsements, I'd rather play a round of Excitebike any day.

    When Big Beach Sports first arrived I smelled mediocrity a mile off - the worst trait for a reviewer.

    If you're looking for a decent rally/off-road game on the go then you could do worse than MX vs ATV Untamed; it's just too bad that the only other offerings on the system for off-road racing games are in the same series and are just as decent if not worse.

    Blitz: The League II unfortunately never rises above the moniker of a run-of-the-mill arcade game.

    With presentation that's lacking flair, no tournament options, sub-standard opponent AI, no rule variations other than 8 or 9 ball pool and limited stimuli to continue playing, Frontline Studios appear to have just gone through the motions with Actua Pool.

    Sure, it's easy to pick up and play, the graphics and sound are just about passable and there's a decent range of weapons, but if I had gone out and bought it I'd feel somewhat cheated as I played the first mission, only to find that there's very little new here.

    I finished playing WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 feeling cold and dirty, like I'd been doing something I shouldn't have been. I'm shocked at how badly THQ have dropped the ball with this one - in fact, they've climbed all the way to the top of Mount Everest to drop said ball!

    For the time being at least, my callous regard of film licenses remains justified. The cheap thrills on offer here are replicated with much more panache in titles such as "GTA: San Andreas" or "Driv3r." Steer clear.

    Even though there's loads to do, it doesn't alter the fact that this smelly port of Driver: Parallel Lines just reeks of lazy developing - simply put, it's hard to get into and a battle to play.
