    It's very generic, very hard to control, and it simply doesn't hold your attention. It's not the worst generic fighting game out there, but it's certainly not one of the better ones.

    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.

    No matter how hard you try, you're going to have trouble having fun with Star Force 2. It does a number of things right, but sadly its battle mechanic is too huge a problem to overlook.

    Raven Squad starts with a brilliant concept and doesn't bother to flesh it out into a fun or compelling game. It's practically a gift to competing developers. In that regard all it lacks is a note reading, "Here's a template for a hybrid FPS-RTS; do something useful with it, because we don't feel like it."

    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.

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

    In the end this game feels less like a thrilling adventure and more like an eight to ten hour endurance test. It's a good looking game, though the visuals will never 'wow'.

    The Infinity Gauntlet may be geared towards a younger demographic, but it certainly has potential to attract an older audience with its recognizable cast and witty scripting.

    Quick exhibition matches, both locally and online, as well as a few memorable minigames are enough for a quick fix. The odd career mode, however, is more frustrating than fun.

    Hardcore turn-based strategy fans will soon tire of the "in-space" novelty and recognize that Immortals is nothing more than an unoriginal, formulaic budget title.

    Think of an offline version of Phantasy Star Online, but with poorer visuals, limited move-sets, uninteresting music, and repetitive gameplay that offers no real rewards. You'd then have the latest Dungeon Explorer.

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

    I love what Vicious Cycle and D3Publisher tried to accomplish with Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard. Unfortunately, the satire and humor isn't enough to save the title from its contrived gameplay.

    Fun games can be simple, and simple games are often fun, but there's a tedium at the heart of Super Motherload that it just can't shake.

    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.

    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.

    If you thought Hooked! Real Motion Fishing was going to be the Wii fishing game you've been waiting for, guess again. The poor graphics, terrible music, limited content, and the nearly useless Wi-Fi multiplayer make this another Wii fishing title with almost nothing rewarding to offer.

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a text-book example of a rushed movie tie-in that does nothing for either the movie or the gaming industry. Leave this Mummy in its wrapper.

    While no particular aspect of the game is downright terrible, there's just nothing I can really point to and say, "See, this part of the game is awesome!"

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

    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.

    Battle of Giants: Dragons is a pretty tight package, but it's presented with little consideration for the player. The gameplay is absurdly obtuse, with objectives that amount to little more than slowly meandering through uneventful levels and engaging in battles that yield little reward.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    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?

    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.
