    The awkward controls mean that the other problems with the gameplay probably won’t be noticeable as you wrestle with the controller.

    There's a quaint and mostly enjoyable familiarity to it all, but it's something only fans of the television series will appreciate, and then only momentarily. For anyone else, well, the horse is already dead.

    This is an awful, awful, awful game. Don’t even buy it for your enemies. Don’t even think about it. You’ll never get the time back you spend playing this rubbish.

    You can’t help but feel cheated by the lack of polish overall on this game as a PC gamer. Spark has taken the tried and tested graphical powerhouse that is the Unreal III Engine and churned out a straight port of a console game that takes all the power of the modern PC and totally ignores it.

    Plagued by poor and outdated graphics, horrid voice acting and some of the dumbest AI of the year, the potential hit quickly turned into another bitter miss. Too bad.

    At the end of the day it's a pretty average racing game here, it has a lot in common with Excitetruck, but is a pale imitation of it really.

    A real mess.

    The lack of any challenge and enjoyment in single player, gameplay dull enough to send you into a coma, and complete lack of what games should be about, fun, means that ATV Quad Frenzy is about as appealing as a punch in the face. Utter rubbish.

    Shellshock 2 is truly a bad game. It's short, it's ugly and it's uninspiring. Just what Rebellion were thinking before releasing this travesty is beyond me, because it doesn't have a leg to stand on in comparison to most PS2 FPSs, let alone anything the current-gen consoles have to offer. Leave this one alone.

    There is nothing good to say about this game. I imagine it was pretty poor on the PSP, and it’s even worse with shoddy Wii controls added.

    Indeed, If a more damning indictment were needed, it actually took me longer to write this review than to play through and get bored of all the activities in More Game Party. So that's it then. Game over. Or in this case, it never really began.

    Not only a contender for the worst game of the year, but also the worst game of all time.

    Given the new found popularity Limbo of the Lost has gained over recent weeks this may go down as a cult classic. However that’s not to say that the game is so bad it's good, the game is so bad it's an insult.
