    Borderline shovelware -- but without that $20 price tag. I'd encourage you strongly to stay away from this game -- as a racing game, it has very little to offer. Cruising the city gets old quickly, and the multiplayer mode is about as exciting as the rest of the single-player game.

    The majority of missions have you destroying weapons and taking down terrorists. The bonus levels are just rehashes of things from single-player. There's little to hold your attention for very long.

    With a decent amount of work and attention to details, the sequel could be worth playing. Unfortunately, this one is just not ready yet, and that is written in the frequent bugs.

    Resource management is boring at the best of times, and, in Shattered Suns, it's a yawn-festival.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Almost every aspect of the game, from premise to execution, is highly derivative and substantially lacking. The for-the-whole-family appeal is certainly present, but your money is better spent taking the gang out to experience the real thing.

    Gameplay becomes redundant quickly. It's very unbalanced.

    As racing games go, Need for Speed Undercover is a weak offering. The Wii controls offer nothing particularly interesting (though it's worth noting that the game is compatible with the Wii wheel accessory and Logitech Speed Force Wheel) and even four-player multiplayer does little to relieve the game's significant problems.

    Hardcore Dynasty Warriors fans will probably get this title for the storyline alone. More casual fans of the series stay away!

    Overall, the problem with Ski and Shoot is not so much that it's a truly terrible game, but that the subject matter simply doesn’t translate into a fun gaming experience.

    It’s a real shame the game is so deeply handicapped by the archaic visuals and half-broken controls. Pick this one up on DS and have a blast!

    Don't buy this game. It's not worth your time, much less your $30. If you're a Wii owner who really wants a boxing challenge beyond that of Wii Sports, there's nothing to do but wait.

    Just be sure you know what you're getting yourself into with this version of the game, as this mature character and the teen ESRB rating don't seem to mix well.

    This game was about as close to "painful" as I've seen in recent memory.

    Frankly, it's time for this series to die. It's been continually plodding along, getting little love from anyone outside the Mega Man hardcore. Capcom refuses to update the formula in any meaningful way, and as such it's clear that they don't really care.

    SFG seems larger than it is because each campaign has its own flavor and unique perspective, but slogging uphill through one nation's campaign is such a test of patience that it's hard to imagine what would drive someone to willingly play through a second or third time.

    There is just so little content and the levels are so repetitive that Wild Things spends its cache of charm in the first few minutes, and once its gone, you'll be left asking yourself one question: When did the Wild Rumpus get so boring?

    Considering there's nothing else to do in this game besides the single-player, that mode needed to be really good. Unfortunately, what we have instead is a missed opportunity that only frustrates and angers.

    Creating a worthwhile karate or martial arts sim on the Wii would have been a great idea, but unfortunately, all you can expect from All Star Karate is a bunch of waggling of your hands and shaking of your head.

    A complete disappointment on all fronts and shouldn't be played by anyone.

    There's basically nothing to keep you coming back. The inclusion of Download Play is nice, but likely will rarely be used.

    Parts of the game aren't entirely bad, but its simplistic approach will leave golf fans feeling cheapened. At best, this is a golf game for people who dislike golf.

    This game feels like an afterthought to the next-gen versions.

    Fighters Uncaged doesn't offer nearly enough content, and much of it is hidden behind artificial content walls. Most of the fighters are much the same.

    The game mechanics are barely competent, and there's not a ton of noteworthy things to do. You'll probably become bored very quickly after you've done the same few things over and over.

    While the obnoxious ads shouldn't be taken into account when critiquing a title, its poor execution of nearly every aspect of gameplay warrants plenty of scolding. Placing players in a position early for failure, then failing to reward them with engaging gameplay or satisfactory basketball action is simply unacceptable.

    You've probably played this game before. If you haven't, you probably don't want to, and this isn't the best version to start on. It doesn't add enough for old fans or do enough to reel in new players.

    Resistance: Burning Skies feels like an unfinished proof of concept. It works, in that it functions and does what it promises to do, and even has some great ideas from a technical perspective, but the game that surrounds it never put me on the edge of my seat, or compelled me to play through it, unable to stop at a checkpoint and take care of important events in real life. It doesn't suck one in and its multiplayer, despite a level-unlock system and eventual access to the upgrades from the campaign, feels tinny and incomplete.
