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

    Not only is Stronghold Crusader Extreme dated in terms of graphics and sound, but the interface is also slow and cumbersome.

    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.

    As close to broken as it gets. Anyone looking for a virtual 8-ball or darts simulator will find it here, but they certainly aren’t worth the 40 dollar price of admission.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Steel Horizon sinks like the Titanic, but I can guarantee you that no one will glorify this disaster.

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

    The aesthetics of the game create an illusion of quality. God Mode, at its core, feels as cheap as the price tag might suggest. The one-note shooting can’t sustain the game through all five maps.
    • 51 Metascore

    Best to let this game sit on the shelf and take up its own space.

    It's a real pity that there are so many parts of Baroque that don't work, because the title also features some innovations for the dungeon-crawling sub-genre.

    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.

    The game as a whole just suffers from its poor production and a whole host of missed opportunities.

    If there's any good reason to purchase, rent or even borrow this game, I haven't found it.

    Hour of Victory feels like a chore to play. The gameplay is anachronistic and doesn't bring anything new to the genre at all. It actually feels like a few steps backwards for both the FPS genre and the WWII shooter.

    It's one of those titles where the more you play, the less fun you have.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Some elements of the game are playable but not all. Overall, it's too inconsistent.
    • 37 Metascore

    Not nearly enough craftsmanship went into the creation of the title and the end result is a meager offering.
    • 55 Metascore

    Although Grease: The Game has a few good moments, these are too few and far between for this title to be worth your time. The poor visuals, hit-or-miss mini-games, and short length make this a title that only the most diehard Grease fans need experience.

    You’ll breeze through this game in about two hours and have nothing left but three mini-games pulled directly from the story and perhaps a few collectibles to find. A real travesty when you consider that watching the film takes just about as long but is much cheaper.

    Unless you're the biggest Digimon fan on the planet, don't even bother to rent this mess.

    Hydrophobia's waifish, glossed-over narrative is overshadowed by its shoddy combat and irritatingly obtuse navigation. At least the water is nice.

    What's so strange about For Answer is its trading of extensive customization for actual gameplay. Sure, you can build the ultimate mech, customizing it to your heart's content, yet when you actually play the game, you realize its shortcomings.

    Completely useless A.I. makes playing this game by yourself absolutely infuriating, but if you can find a friend to play with, it at least becomes playable. Then it is simply just boring and repetitive.

    Although Turning Point had an interesting storyline, it still ends up being an incredibly limited and generic WWII shooter.

    The only thing that proved to be memorable about this game was how terrible it was. From the broken controls to the mysteriously disappearing audio, this game should definitely be avoided, even for die-hard fans. Although it might be tempting to play a game based on such an awesome series, the game channels none of the amazing spirit of the show.

    All of the things that The Sims is, Miami Nights: Singles in the City just isn't. It is repetitive and boring, and just can't deliver in the way that fans of sim-style gameplay could appreciate. Plus the characters are a little too creepy for my tastes.
