    This standalone prequel is a nice touch for fans of Second Son, but there’s absolutely nothing within to entice series newcomers to jump in.

    As a huge Halo fangirl myself, it absolutely breaks my heart to see Halo tarnished in this fashion. This should have been a solid slam dunk for 343, not an utter disappointment.

    Frankly, I'd rather play as a short fat bald guy and fight against lifelike opponents (with believable AI) than as a chick in sexy underwear desperately evading relentless fire from foes with supernatural aiming abilities.

    Sometimes even the brainless chopping, and gallons of spraying blood that are KISS: Psycho Circus can be fun, and enjoyable. Overall, it left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    The frustration and boredom grow critical as you realize that some of the assignments are repetitive and may require mad piloting and luck, rather than a well thought out strategy for achieving them.

    You can't use the flashlight and manipulate objects at the same time. Although you're holding the flashlight with just one hand. Who knows, maybe "Doc" suffered a stroke?

    If five enemies stand on one spot, you kill four of them and the fifth one was incidentally looking somewhere else at the time, he won't have a clue what happened, and better still, he won't realize anything happened.

    When you get down to the basics, Chaser doesn't offer any particular innovations in terms of gameplay...Thanks to several technical mishaps, topped with AI flaws, this game won't accomplish much with heavy FPS competition looming right around the corner.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    In a nutshell, while I had some fun with the vehicles and the massive scale of some of the battles, AI bugs, stupid design decisions and awful sounds coupled with dated graphics really didn't help me to immerse myself in it at all.

    It's a shame that this game should loose all of its visual finery just because it was unsuccessfully ported from the Xbox. All of those nifty visual treats that made the game rock on the Xbox were just gone, which came as an overall disappointment.

    It can get tiresome, it can get too easy...it does have one big downside - your creature lacks the personality it had in the original game.

    Once your army is assembled, you'll encounter little or no resistance from the enemy troops, which essentially kills any sense of accomplishment a player might have after successfully finishing a mission.

    The main story is not original enough to make you complete a chapter. Also, getting use to the camera is tiring. This pisses me of every time I play a TR, and being a game player, I demand satisfaction in this sense!

    ETM has a solid combat system that's addictive at times, but the game doesn't offer any gripping features that might increase its replayability. Also, it's mostly linear throughout the entire course of the plot.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    The game's storyline although genuine, leaves plenty to be desired...The game is comparable to Activision's recently released title "Spider-Man: The Movie," but it's far less attractive and ultimately more frustrating.
    • 75 Metascore

    Black and White 2 might be one of the shallowest games I have ever played. In fact, I am depressed that a developer like Molyneux has been able to continually botch up awesome-sounding ideas so thoroughly for so long.
    • 63 Metascore

    I certainly don't feel the incentive to play the game again, and I'm afraid neither will anyone else (especially not until they fix the save option thing).
    • 69 Metascore

    Anything that was good about Armies of Exigo is irreparably ruined by the woefully cliché story, simplicity, repetitive mission objectives and often dimwitted AI. I would have forgiven it all that, if only it hadn't been so boring.

    All in all, Area 51 is a pretty standard first-person shooter with little if any original content, an unintelligible storyline, and game options typical for the genre, packed with some intense combat and an occasional feel you're actually onto something, while in fact you will only be browsing levels in search for bigger, badder, and meaner opponents.

    What a way to end such a reputable and generally good real-time strategy series... Both C&C 3 and Red Alert 3 were way better than this game.

    This game could've been far more exciting for hardcore Blade 2 movie fans if it weren't for the game's remarkable shortness.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    An altogether playable, yet mediocre and average game in any sense.
    • 60 Metascore

    What the developers tried to do is wrap "Dungeon Siege" into a sci-fi package resembling "Mass Effect" and have failed miserably at it. While it certainly lacks the depth and epic atmosphere of "Mass Effect" and similar top releases, it also doesn't live up to the rich content and immersive settings of the "Dungeon Siege" games.

    EA had a chance to deliver a really cool game and to improve upon the sequel. They seemed to have failed on both fronts.

    If you like Enemy Territory enough that you're willing to play another somewhat flawed version of it, you may enjoy Brink.
    • 81 Metascore

    To the Moon is a formulaic tale told in the wrong medium. It's far too uneven to be taken seriously by anyone who isn't enthusiastically ignoring its flaws. I'm sorry to say this was the most tedious time I ever had with a game.

    Zoo Tycoon is somewhere on the verge of turning from nice fun for long winter nights into arduous work that would make your eyes, hand and brain hurt.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Not only is the game easy and uninventive, but it also has few units, a poor AI, and happens to be one of the least stable games I played in a long time.

    There is also one major thing that literally butchers gameplay; in Platoon, your soldiers will not respond to enemy fire even if the enemy is standing three feet behind them and firing. To make your men return fire, you first have to “tell them” to turn around.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A sloppy console port... To top all the negative aspects, the game is rather short and, quite frankly, hardly worth its current $30 price tag.
