    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.

    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.

    There isn't much to get excited about with Pocket Pool. Not even the models and their cheesy videos are likely to scintillate you.

    Dragon Ball Z for the Kinect is just a mess.

    For a storyline that is both pointless and lame, considering it takes place almost three years ago according to the show's storyline, The Shield leaves a lot to wish for. Better gameplay, more responsive controls, no bugs or glitches or, even better, for games like this never to be made.

    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.

    The unfortunate part is that this game is so basic that it can only serve to entertain newbies. It's got less depth than the average tutorial.

    Painfully mediocre and flawed at its very core.
    • 47 Metascore

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

    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.

    Resource management is boring at the best of times, and, in Shattered Suns, it's a yawn-festival.
    • 43 Metascore

    Most of the game feels like a cheap slog through enemies that won’t die.

    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.

    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.

    Omerta is a great idea, but it drags too often and enthralls too little.
    • 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.

    Curious to see what a decent platformer was like on Atari 2600? Then, Yogi Bear on Wii might make for an interesting history lesson. If you're after contemporary fun, however, steer clear of this unimaginative drek.

    It all comes down to the basic fact that a work of art, created specifically for a mature audience, should not have been forced to compromise the way that this game has been. Gamers who have been waiting a long time for this game to come out, or even just gamers in general, should definitely stay far away from Manhunt 2. While it is definitely not the worst game I have ever played, it is definitely one of the biggest letdowns.

    The game was just that painfully disappointing. It's its own fault, though. It was touted by its team as a spiritual successor to Guardian Heroes, one of the best Saturn games of all time and a great side-scrolling beat 'em up in any context. The comparison, though, only holds up at the shallowest level of the surface, falling apart as soon as one scratches that away.

    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.

    Terrible. There is a split-screen multiplayer option, but I can't imagine anyone who'd want to participate, and why would they? Sluggish controls, poor attention to detail, lack of customization, and unbalanced difficulty all makes Showtime Championship Boxing a dud.

    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.

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

    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.

    Maybe Imageepoch just wanted to experiment. I can’t fault them for that, and they certainly had guts in putting this game together. NIS America, too, for bringing it overseas. I’m only sorry that the concept and effort didn’t come together into a cohesive whole.

    Repetitive and uninspired missions abound as do glitches that can make completing missions more difficult or even impossible without reloading. The lack of a co-op mode for the campaign is also a huge letdown.

    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.

    It may be a great GBA game but it should have been completely overhauled for the PSP, to the extent of creating another sequel in the series. What you're getting here is a game where the expiry date was written over with, "Coming Soon to the PSP."
    • 32 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    A game that you should certainly pass by. It has few, if any, redeeming qualities, and I'm hard-pressed to imagine the sort of person who could actually have fun with this title.
    • 38 Metascore

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