    The novelty will wear off quickly. This is more of a platformer than a virtual pet game.

    There are enough gameplay elements to take your mind off how bad this game is for a while, but it eventually catches up to you.

    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.

    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.

    Supreme Cuisine could have been a great opportunity to bring the excitement and entertainingly tense cooking battles in kitchen stadium to life on the Wii. Instead, the game provides an uninspiring, and frankly boring, culinary mini-game experience that apes Cooking Mama without including some of the more fun aspects of the cooking video game genre.

    Fans abroad have consistently praised other versions of the game for its uniqueness and difficulty. However, Pop'n Music for the Wii doesn't feel unique or difficult; it just feels like a lot of frustrating shaking set to bad music.

    You'll complete the game within a couple of hours, with little more to do than unlock self-gratifying awards.

    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.

    Broken online play, lack of caution flags, and the inability for the pack of cars to spread out. You'll have fun for five minutes, then become incredibly frustrated.

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

    Despite its many promises, this game falls short, with redundant gameplay, unreliable controls, and lackluster storytelling.

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

    The plodding and imperfect gameplay, poor visuals, nonexistent story, and terrible controls combine to create an experience best avoided.

    All of the environments are imaginative, colorful, and filled with Shrek-inspired detail. They are a great sight to behold, but alas, they are all too short. I would liked to have seen double the amount of tracks.

    Alien Spidy is so close to being an enjoyable, active puzzle experience, but it lacks the fluidity, both in gameplay and in progression, that would allow it to be a truly memorable and engaging experience.

    The cutscenes are among some of the worst acted I've ever seen. The writing is equally as amateurish as the acting. Never mind the bad grammar, but the whole hip hop vernacular is just cliché after bad cliché.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    The game’s challenge is non-existent, the longevity is severely lacking, the scoring system is a mess, and going through each track to get high ratings is a chore.

    The actual gaming portion of this package is painfully unintuitive and fails to deliver any sort of experience of lasting worth. A food analogy properly sums it up. Pizza, salad, and cake are all good on their own, but haphazardly mash the three together results in an unpalatable mess. Sadly, such is the case with What’s Cooking.

    The cutscenes convey the Ghostbusters franchise as good as one could expect. They are filled with great graphics, great voiceovers, and movie-quality sound effects. The rest of the game has trouble living up to the cutscenes. In fact, the game has trouble living up to standards of a good DS game.

    Maddeningly obtuse design more often than not makes Spare Parts an exercise in irritation rather than fun.

    Ten minigames for thirty+ dollars, with only room for one more local player? It's less than an hour's worth of not-so-fun fun.

    Samurai Warrriors: Katana is a Wii killer. It is the kind of electronic swag, like the abominations coming from Bold Games (Orbs of Doom, Kidz Sports, etc.) that will make fans turn away from the platform. Nintendo needs to get control of third party publishers. They are making the Wii seem like a Fisher Price console.

    While it does have a few redeeming qualities, Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys is brought down by its unimaginative and poorly executed gameplay mechanic. There's no real plot either, which is a shame.

    Although the game does look and sound like the TV show, the gameplay is reminiscent of a budget game. I had to look closely to make sure the box it came in didn't have a hole drilled through it.

    The lack of play modes in this title is really appalling. Just having the main story mode as well as a multi-cart multiplayer option is not enough to keep you coming back.

    But face it, there's not one game that you can't find instructions for and play online for free.

    If Hummer Badlands were an actual arcade game, it would make on average, about a quarter an hour. It's just too easy.
