    All in all, it's a decent game it just doesn't offer anything spectacular.

    This game is not an exercise game per se but you will get up and moving and have fun with it. I am happy to say that with the inclusion of some of the extra modes it looks like the developers cared enough to put some other extras into it. Overall, it's a good game (but not a great one) and if you already have the Active Life mat then this is a no-brainer.

    This game got released too early. Had it been released around the holidays, and with the collection of bugs and broken quests eliminated, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a great gift for gamers. As it is, I can only say that it's beautiful but tragically flawed.

    An all-right RTS game but compared to current RTS games it's lacking.

    "Fight Night 2004" is better on all levels, but if you are a Rocky fan or just want to go head up versus a buddy, Legends will give you the action. Just make sure that you time your combos right and know how to block and maneuver, because all it takes is one punch to throw you down.

    While it is creepy, and does have a solid story the mixed presentation and weak controls mar the experience.

    Though Star Wars Galaxies does have the potential of becoming a better MMORPG, the current version of the game is dull and lacks in quality.

    Once it drops in price a bit, go ahead and add another point or two to the score, because it’s really a victim of poor pricing than poor gameplay.

    Alive offers a great racing experience. It's just a shame that everything outside of the actual racing is sub standard. The frustrating levelling up system almost ruined the entire experience for me and the lack of tutorials leaves a lot to be desired.

    I’d actually have to agree these criticisms I just don’t think it detracts from the overall arcade-like vibe that I want from a game like Time Crisis 4.

    Despite some satisfying leap-tall-buildings-in-a-single-bound moments above the skies of Metropolis and providing the best Superman adventure yet (again, not saying too much, if you examine the history of Superman games) with some moments of solid adventuring before getting too repetitively stale, Superman Returns just isn't that super.

    The action is very good, even if you can almost ignore finesse and button mash through a lot of the game, but there's not enough for me to keep coming back.

    But it’s nice to see that Nintendo is at least vaguely on track with this series – maybe we’ll get a traditional entry next, and maybe this time they’ll let us configure the controls.

    Loki: Heroes of Mythology may not bring anything really new or exciting to the table, but if you enjoy this sort of game you will find hours and hours of enjoyment and after all, that’s really what it’s all about isn’t it?

    Fans of the soldier shooting genre are better off sticking with the current and upcoming Tom Clancy games than looking at the weak shadow of a game that SORM ultimately turns out to be.

    Overhaul Games didn't ruin the goodness in their effort to be loved, but they did make it harder to get to and enjoy. As a game, it's not what I would call the definitive experience, and I can't recommend people going with it when there's a better path out there.

    It's new, it's fresh, it is ruined by a faulty camera!

    Demon Stone’s gameplay cannot match the quality of the game’s presentation.

    While F.E.A.R. 2 still delivers in its action and grim setting, especially for fans of the original, FPS games have evolved since 2005, and the very innovations that made the first game stand out have now become cliché and drawn out.

    Once you become intimately familiar with the levels, Hitman becomes a lot of fun, and the game is practically made for infinite replayability. The problem is, getting to that point is so messy that it's more confusing than fun.

    While there is no doubt that True Crime is an ambitious game and that it does offer up a plethora of gameplay, the quality of that gameplay is somewhat lacking.

    Maybe my only real complaint is that during Challenge mode there's a half-second delay from the completion of a line of tiles to the time is disappears.

    The biggest thing I felt was missing was the all-important fun factor.

    I love the animation and look of the game and some the technical fighting aspects, but there's not much else.
    • 75 Metascore

    It does provide a short bit of fun, but that quickly ends as the repetition sinks in its claws.

    Playing Raging Blast 2 reminded me of all the fun from the anime series, but it also reminded me of all the shortcomings of that series as well.

    It’s not a terrible game, but everything about it, from the gameplay on down, has been done a great deal more effectively in a slew of other GBA games with considerably more gameplay muscle.

    If you want to play baseball on the Wii, try The Bigs or MLB Power Pros. Even though Sluggers does have fast paced action, giant baseball super pitches and fireball star hits, as a baseball game, Mario Super Sluggers is too simplistic for the average game player.

    Hands down, this is one of the weirdest games I’ve played this year. But it’s also the funniest.

    Like Gotham City Imposters a few months ago, the component parts of Nexuiz are sound; the weapons and shooting good, and the "hook" of the mutators offers some variety but there just isn't the player base to make it worth checking out unless gunning down bots isn't a deal breaker. And it should be reported that unlike Gotham City Imposters, getting connected and staying connected to a match of Nexuiz was never a problem.
