    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.

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

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

    If I could turn the sniper rifle on my character in Sniper: Path of Vengeance, it would have been a much shorter but more satisfying game.

    The tutorial sets the stage for a pleasurable experience, but shoddy game modes, AI, and visuals kill the moment.

    Blades of Thunder reduces the thrills of chopper combat to that of delivering crates of Kentucky Fried Chicken to remote Indian reserves in the Canadian wilderness.

    The videogame resembles the cartoon so well that I instinctively reach for the remote to change the channel. Hey, look, there's a great show on the making of mop handles.

    The environments are flaccid, the gameplay tepid and the overall product is just plain limp.

    The game feels empty and sterile. The airport never comes to life despite your best efforts. The game didn't hold my interest any longer an hour and I just didn't care to track down any help on the net.

    The various gameplay elements are just too shallow to hold your interest. You only have one button for combat and once you learn how to sneak around guards you've pretty much aced the game.

    Even at twenty bucks, which turns out to be two bucks a game, there are games that I wouldn't ever consider putting eight quarters into if they were in an airport arcade and I had a ten-hour layover. I would just opt for a nap instead.

    Lords of Shadow 1 suffered from feeling like a God of War clone with poor platforming. Lords of Shadow 2, on the other hand, no longer feels like a clone. It just feels like a generic action game. It has a story you don’t care about, a mashy combat system, and generic enemies and locales. The only good thing about this game is its voice acting, but even Robert Carlyle can’t save this one.

    Murakumo at first looks like an expensive diamond but after playing it you to will see it’s nothing more then a polished lump of coal.

    The game gets very old, very fast, especially in the four-player mode.

    The load times are ridiculous. I have not seen a more frustrating design. It loads when you access a menu. It even loads after you pause it. There is no other reason for this other than sloppy design.

    I found it cliché, repetitive and not very much fun.

    There's very little to do in this game, and from start to finish it will take you only a few hours. The levels are repeated incessantly, and there is almost zero variety in the missions.

    The game makes you suffer the stress of not knowing what to do or where to go and that makes for very uninteresting and uncomfortable gameplay.

    This game actually has less content than the original, and with no other improvements, it's hard to recommend this even at a $30 price point.

    Mortyr 2 is exactly what you would expect to find in a litter box. It's kind of dried out so it doesn't stink too bad, and it's clumped with the litter so it doesn't look that bad either but let's make it clear that it's still a piece of crap.

    Although the challenge is formidable, the game is relatively short. The developers were hoping that the difficulty of the game alone would add to its length.

    This game is just too unrealistic to make it tick. Airborne Troops manages to get off the ground but it doesn't take long before it crash-lands somewhere behind enemy lines - with nobody bothering to recover it.

    The brawling gets old fast and the game's design isn't conducive to using guns, making for some boring, linear gameplay, The lackluster narrative doesn't help.

    P.N. 03 won't keep anyone interested for more than a couple of hours. The longer you continue to enjoy the game after that is directly proportional to the time you spent watching reality TV shows.

    You can throw in all the famous characters you want but if the gameplay isn't there you don't have a game worth playing.

    Only the most feeble of gamers or the very young will get any challenge out of this game. It should have been a mini game.

    FlatOut has all the makings of a great budget games, except that it's not great and that it's not budget priced.

    If you're looking for a revolution, you've come to the wrong place - unless you just want to go around in circles.

    Even die-hard fans of Ghost Rider may be offended by this game attempting to pass itself off as representing the Spirit of Vengeance.

    Combines some of the best elements of past games but still fails to deliver what should be a near-perfect gaming experience. It's like a stew that just doesn't blend.
