    Creating your own robots is cool, but pointless due to their terrible AI. Why invest a fortune in upgrades if your dumb metal buddy will probably get stuck on a first rock he encounters? [06/2016, p.55]

    Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture claims to be something more than a game, but that claim is completely groundless. [10/2015, p.50]

    Gameplay-wise Fahrenheit aged awfully and Aspyr did next to nothing to at least make it look decently. No one in our office could tell the difference between the original game and the remastered version (apart from widescreen modes). [04/2015, p.64]

    Deadline is worse than its predecessor in every aspect and finally it wore mi down with its insubordinate camera and terrible interface. [10/2015, p.61]

    I was fed up with Steel Empire after 15 minutes. The game is too easy, weapons lack punch, action sequences are anemic. [03/2016, p.73]

    You’ll need just 10-15 minutes to complete 10 free levels, and that is fortunate. [09/2015, p.69]

    I don’t believe games can breed psychopaths, but if any game was to evoke murderous instincts, it would be this one. You decide which of the suspects is guilty based on clues (shabby, obscure visuals do not help) and then you flick the switch of the electric chair and listen to him scream in agony. [11/2015, p.48]

    Fallen fails to take even the smallest step outside the basics defined in the 90s by Jagged Alliance and X-COM. [11/2015, p.55]

    Sometimes it manages to tickle the pleasure center of the brain, but these moments are like grains of sand in the desert of low budget mediocrity. [05/2016, p.63]

    Nothing more than an attempt to snatch some money. [April 2012, p.74]

    Isn’t it high time to stop resurrecting this stale series? [07/2014, p.60]

    On paper this was material for a blockbuster but good ideas were buried under incompetence and lack of experience. [May 2012, p.64]

    A generic top-down shooter that fails to deliver anything novel. [CD-Action 03/2013, p.76]

    Despite my numerous attempts to calibrate Move the controller's precision in Hunter's Trophy left much to be desired. It's an old, ugly game that can appeal only to retired hunting enthusiasts. [February 2012, p.63]

    Randal’s Monday is so packed with references to movies, books and other games that it’s bursting at the seams, but it never rises to the level of the works it mocks. [01/2015, p.77]

    Boss battles are tedious and companion's AI is disastrous (which might explain why the puzzles are so basic and repetitive – that dumb rabbit probably wouldn't handle anything more elaborate). And it's not really a game for kids because on occasion it's rather difficult (partly due to abysmal jumping mechanics). Each time I put the controller aside after playing this painfully generic game, I was tired and bored. And I hated my job a little. [1/2013, p.60]

    A low budget shooter with unbelievably dumb AI, rather ugly visuals (even though it uses Unreal Engine 3) and ridiculous dialogues. [January 2012, p.64]

    Generic missions, bland locations and poor humour make Bunch of Heroes an uneven battle not only against alien invaders but mostly against boredom. [January 2012, p.66]

    As a stealth game Chronicles crosses the thin line between acceptable simplifications and ridiculousness (the AI is awful), its visuals are bland to the point of being tiring and the story is stupid even for an Assassin’s Creed game. Workers of the world, just stay at home and... you know... do something else maybe. [04/2016, p.58]

    It’s extremely good at scare jumps but the point is that scare jumps are an awfully primitive tool. [07/2015, p.54]

    Invasion shows how a fast, properly executed gameplay can be turned into a tedious monstrosity. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.68]

    Pathetic AI and loads of bugs and flaws drag down what was a promising game. [07/2015, p.63]

    You’ll stay enamored by Deer God for two hours. Unfortunately the game takes five to complete and after the initial charm is gone it becomes repetitive as hell. What more, it creates space for an interesting story and fails to fill it. [05/2015, p.71]

    Switch off voice recognition in the menu and you’re left with a run-of-the-mill budget game that doesn’t have much to offer. [05/2015, p.72]

    Battle for Hogwarts is the most game-suitable fragment in the whole Harry Potter saga. Unfortunately Electronic Arts' vision is bland and uninspired. There's no feel of grandiosity and significance whatsoever. Just like in the predecessor the gameplay was boiled down to ducking behind covers and zapping enemies with spells. The saga is over. We can only regret the style. [August 2011, p.60]

    I expected Murdered to be an interesting, modern adventure game. Instead I got a very shallow story paired with irritating gameplay mechanics. [08/2014, p.52]

    Confrontation's potentially brightest feature – combat system – turned out to be abysmal and the game has nothing else to offer. [September 2012, p.56]

    Another online shooter – these three words sum up Team X nicely. It offers nothing that would keep you in front of the screen. What’s even worse – there are no people to play with. [CD-Action 05/2013, p.74]

    It’s not a new Rayman or even half of Ratchet & Clank. Kids should not burst our crying if you give them Zack Zero to play but why would you do that if there is plenty of other, better platformers? [CD-Action 08/2013, p.85]

    There’s a decent game in there somewhere, but it’s hard to notice it under all those bugs and shortcomings. [06/2015, p.75]
