    Dragon Ball Z for the Kinect is just a mess.

    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.

    Painfully mediocre and flawed at its very core.

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

    It isn’t that Akaneiro is terrible. It might have been released earlier than it perhaps should have been, lacking gameplay features that would have made its freemium faults less egregious.

    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.

    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.

    Sonic Team, I’m just going to spell this out for you. This is not what we want from a Sonic game. Don’t go back to the drawing board. Don’t try to re-invent Sonic’s image again. Just give us the stuff that works from your last few successful titles and call it a day.

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

    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.

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

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

    It's one of those titles where the more you play, the less fun you have.

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

    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.

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

    Some elements of the game are playable but not all. Overall, it's too inconsistent.

    Alone in the Dark can be played in a day. You can actually skip levels if you get too frustrated, but you can save a lot of frustration by just skipping the game entirely.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    A game should have compelling enough gameplay that a standoff is tense and enjoyable, not dull and monotonous to the point of drudgery.

    You may begin to find yourself suffering from the Too-Much-Sameness disorder. Symptoms include boredom and the unwillingness to complete the game.
