    Its graphics and challenging gameplay make it more fun to be on the field than reading box scores.

    Low "immersion factor". Two-bit, two-frame main character animation. Sluggish and awkward combat mode. Completely unoriginal puzzles. RPG elements are nothing more than a decoration - something to put on a box.

    The original is not without its faults but still excellently done, while Spearhead resembles a Space Invaders MOHAA mod with occasionally well-directed semi-interactive action scenes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    In short, the game is a complete turd that wastes the idea of its central mechanic and couples this with platforming gameplay that would have been woefully underwhelming a decade ago. Nothing else is anything to write home about, from the characters to the story to the sound design.

    The whole game feels like an insipid GTA clone that overemphasizes mindless destruction. For some games, this is enough, if it's done with style. In Mercs 2, it just feels pointless and without soul.

    A Machine for Pigs takes Amnesia's formula and shows us how to screw it up. The idea had huge potential, but it's squandered on what frankly is a cheap and uninvolving game. This was an extremely disappointing experience.

    Though the visuals have their upsides, the camera is ATROCIOUSLY AWFUL.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The environments are practically lifeless, with poor textures and hardly any additional detail in the background, the characters are uninteresting, the narrative has been oversimplified and, finally, the hack'n'slash combat isn't different from the average generic console game we often see today.

    With very little effort Harry Potter the Prisoner of Azkaban can be finished in a single evening which indeed stands out as a serious drawback. Once you complete it, chances are slim that you'll want to try the whole thing again.

    The franchise took a disastrous plummet into the world of broken, mediocre shooters, where it blatantly doesn't belong.

    All I got out of The Bureau was stress on the battlefield and boredom in the base.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game’s one saving grace could be the wealth of content, like items and stuff you can do. That seems irrelevant in a game that has little depth and very few elements that could keep you playing.
    • 64 Metascore

    There's nothing distinctive about the world we're allowed to explore.
    • 63 Metascore

    Even if the controls on the PS4 weren’t so terrible and I could have finished the game on the console, the story and puzzles in the rest of The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 still would have brought the game down.
    • 63 Metascore

    The good things about this game were only so-so, and the low points could almost redefine low. For all the effort I put into playing this game, in the end I was left very unsatisfied.
    • 61 Metascore

    Nothing more than a mediocre "Diablo II" clone, with several "Baldur's Gate"-like elements - a 2D isometric action RPG.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    In the end, it's not a question of taste or player skill. Dark Void is filled from top to bottom with lousy design choices, technical flaws and overall crappy and uninteresting gameplay mechanics.

    The spirit of the series isn't there anymore. They've streamlined the gameplay to better suit mainstream tendencies. By doing so, they killed off the very spark that made this series stand out from heaps of generic action games. To sum up, Ninja Gaiden 3 sucks in so many ways, it's almost impossible to find any redeeming features.

    If you’re bored out of your mind and you need an RPG fast, well, then stay bored. You don’t want to be even more bored. it’s probably best to return to games like Diablo 3 and Divinity: Original Sin, both of which offer ten times the content and ten times the fun.

    Conquest isn't a very fun game. Thanks to all the aforementioned drawbacks, there's virtually nothing to enjoy about the single-player (we strongly advise you skip that).
    • 56 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Shallow, lacking any gameplay. Made me wanna kill somebody.
    • 56 Metascore

    If you are willing to go around the many gamepleay weaknesses, however, and after several patches, you just might have a passable RTS experience on your hands. But chances are most of you won't tolerate the frequent technical issues, AI glitches, etc. Even though the game uses a unique setting, its lack of originality and gameplay depth might easily dissuade many gamers from playing.

    I lack words to properly describe my disgust with this game. This game looks like somebody made the developers design it at gunpoint.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    There aren't any significant improvements over the original; it's essentially the same old enchilada.

    You won't find any lasting qualities in Duke Nukem Forever and it doesn't have anything to compete against numerous modern games that have so much more to offer.
    • 54 Metascore

    The only thing good about this game is the scenery and the weapon mechanics, but even that isn't going to rescue this game from fading quickly into obscurity and the bargain software bin.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A dreary atmosphere, blatantly outdated visuals, AI bugs, and many other issues inherited from the game's predecessor, all contribute to an overall disappointing experience. Also, if you happen to be a fan of Battlecruiser Millennium, chances are you'll be bored with facing similar gameplay and practically the same content (same universe map, same ships, etc.).
    • 53 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Nothing more than a total cock-up, an uninventive and technically poor copy of several games, primarily Counter-Strike, which was meant to achieve a lot and actually achieved nothing.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    After all that's said and done, Medal of Honor: Warfighter is nothing more than a broken action game that falls way behind other shooters.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    A feeble attempt to imitate one of the best CRPG games ever. It can, however, in no other way be compared to "Baldur's Gate" thanks to its many gameplay drawbacks and numerous technical flaws including the countless bugs which will soon kill any desire to play this game.
