    The animation is jerky and robotic. The dialog is juvenile but the voiceacting is some of the worst I've heard. The director must have been sick that day and let the non-English-speaking cleaning lady handle voiceover recordings.

    If you missed out on the slow motion craze a couple of years ago, then this might be the game for you to pick. On second thought, just try to find "Max Payne." The poor execution to the game is where the real harm is in Made Man.

    Like a mini-game disguised as a real game. It's very generic in terms of gameplay and graphics and despite the poor inclusion of the touch screen controls and dual screen, the handheld novelty of the game doesn't add any "wow" factor either.

    All of the races and objectives are fun to explore but leave no lasting impression. They don't compel you to want to replay them for any reason. Think of this game as nothing more than a series of half-hearted mini-games involving the Teutul family, who by the sounds of things, don't seem to be particularly interested in this game either.

    It wouldn't matter if Brad Pitt and a naked Angelina Jolie starred in this game, it's just not very good. It's a stale platformer in which every element has been dumbed down to its basic component and just barely manages to make use of the touch and dual screen.

    With no opening or closing ceremonies, or otherwise flashy presentation, the game is as boring to look at as it is to play.

    FFXI is a very hard sell to anyone that is new to the franchise. The easiest word to describe it is drudgery, what with its excessive traveling times, difficult leveling structure, and level requirements for anything cool.

    An experienced gamer would find this under-stimulating and be able to blow through it in a matter of hours. I've certainly spend more money, in less time, on worse things, but it doesn't take an accounting genius to tell me that I've got to stop wasting my money on games like this.

    I’m confident that you’ll eventually grow weary of the repetitious dungeon crawling.

    The problem comes when you stare too long: there are constant screen tearing and randomly dropped frames.

    It's a hack-and-slash, so there isn't any compelling depth lurking under the surface. The extra modes – Challenge and Trials of Tyris – are just extended hack and slash sessions. Where's the two-player support?

    A lesson in good intentions gone awry. Nearly all of its novel ideas misfire. What's so interesting about Inferno is the mentality that a patch was all that was needed to make a better game. The original was defined by a lackluster story, awkward controls, and merely okay gameplay – that's not a formula that needs a few tweaks, it's one that should be scrapped entirely.

    When you first put it in, you are immediately assaulted by offensively-bad graphics and a career mode that lacks substance. Top it off with a control scheme that’s too complicated to be anywhere near fun and you have the worst golf title of the year.

    The only real excitement that the game generates is when your life is in immediate danger. And that's only because you'll be threatened with the prospect of having to spend more time playing it.

    To make things even more frustrating, when you increase the difficulty, you also increase the employment of the stylus. Not only will you have to use the stylus to hit the ball, but you have to use it to move your player around the court.

    Be leery of the online gameplay, however, as you will face several members of the exclusive Pokémon elite and make it out barely alive. Let's hope that Nintendo's next venture online is a little more player friendly and not just for an exclusive club.

    While I think that the Wii version of this game could have been great, the uninspiring use of the motion-sensing controls in combat detract from the game's enjoyment. I found myself wishing that I could just hit buttons to attack instead of pointlessly shaking the controllers back and forth.

    A unique and fun game. Unfortunately, the game will only take between one and three hours to play through. Since there is no multiplayer or alternate play modes besides trial (playing levels over again to beat high scores), there is a serious lack of play value. This game was truly different, but ultimately, poorly executed.

    If you would like to play as the Fantastic Four but in a good game, play Marvel's Ultimate Alliance.

    It would be nice to play as each character in a Gauntlet-style format, but the lack of distinctive abilities for each of the four characters puts the kibosh on that dream. One could surmise that this game was doomed from the start.

    If you like to be tortured, you could just go to the store right now and pick up the game; you'll be very satisfied.

    The best area of the game is the online multiplayer, but even that pales in comparison to other possibilities like Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3.

    In the end Jackass: The Game fails to capture what made the show so funny, and this is not for a lack of effort. It does feel like they tried to turn it into a legitimate title, but this is just not an ideal show to do it with.

    The battle system is old and redundant, the visuals are lackluster, the music is non-existent, and there isn't even a multiplayer option.

    It's decent, but never goes the extra distance. Overall the game is dark, making a lot of the detail difficult to see. There's just a bit too much of the vision modes which seems to be a cheap way out of rendering detailed characters and environments.
