    To recap: The price is too high, the content is lacking, the game's fighting framework is the very definition of shallow, and its violence manages to come across as both puerile and dull.

    As awful as repeating any of these single-player mission sounds, it’s something that you’re going to have to get used to. Due to the unfair advantages of the enemy, including the fog of war that prevents you from seeing what lies ahead, you will constantly be surprised by waves of enemies as you push forward without the ability to obtain any intelligence or reconnaissance.

    While the Wii version is an oddly enjoyable experience, the DS version is a complete disappointment.

    While the graphics and hole designs are inviting, the frustrations caused by the controls and Barker himself successfully put a damper on the entire experience.

    Unfortunately, if the Wii version of AITD is any indication as to where this series is headed, then nostalgia may be all that is left for its many fans.

    This is the style of arcade game that was around in mechanical form since the early 50s. It's just an on-rails shooter that never lets up. You never move from your position while shooting down swarms of Japanese aircraft with your AA gun. It's so easy to play it's ridiculous.

    The biggest problem with BUM:ZoD (actually BumZod is kind of a cool word…ya bumzod!) is directly related to the narrow track design that awaits you on every track. Crashing, smashing and bashing into the sides is something you'll have to get used to because there is no discernible way of NOT doing it.

    The problem with Prison Escape is that it's just a buggy little piece of crap. If I were playing this game for my own enjoyment instead of reviewing it I would take this back to the store so fast I would be able catch myself coming out of the door withit.

    I had to look twice to see if perhaps this copy of the game was actually a PSX game accidentally packaged in a PS2 wrapper. Frankly, this game plays so poorly I'm surprised that it's not on a cartridge.

    It looks bad, it plays bad, it's unoriginal, it has no replay value and it's too short. Maybe it's a good thing it's not that long of a game. You can play it through in an afternoon.

    The lack of realism, physics, graphics and good level designs would make any gamer pine for the Super Nintendo just to play a decent game for a while.

    A text-based, gladiator management sim, Coliseum asks the question, "How long can you last?" The correct answer is: Long enough to get a real, wicked, #%*!-ing headache.

    Gamers DO NOT GIVE A %$#@ about concept art. I understand that it's an easy extra to toss in, but does anyone in their right mind actually look forward to unlocking this useless nonsense? Do they just sit there and stare at it? Who cares?

    There is no reason in the world to own this product when "Pictochat" basically does everything at least, equally as well.

    The story is lame, the gameplay is repetitive and the entire control system is compromised in one way or another. Let the developers fix their mistakes before you throw any money in their direction. Don't even rent this one.

    Throwing rocks at cars would be a more fun than shooting rats in NRA Varmint Hunter. Playing this game made me feel like a hobo at a garbage dump with a metal detector.

    Atrocious. And not "atrociously good fun" either. Simply atrocious. It's like biting into an Oh Henry and discovering that it is indeed, a big fat solid chunk of stanky human dung and undigested peanuts.

    With terrible graphics, boring game objectives, frustrating, at best, controls, and mind-numbing character interaction, Escape from Bug Island sets a new low point for Wii games and video games in general.

    I would like to say to all of the vampire enthusiasts out there, if you have ever wanted to see if you would survive a vampire attack, here's your chance to find out. For everyone else that doesn't desire to know that a vampire would end their life in two hits, stay away from it.

    The ESRB rating for this game should be changed to N for nobody, and the number of players should be changed from 1 to 0. Can we call another developer to come and Pimp My Game?

    The PSP version has so many things against it: the gameplay is terrible, the story is non-existent, and the entire game experience ranges from boring to enraging, depending on how long you've been playing. I feel almost guilty giving ANY game this bad of a review. But trust me, this one earned it.

    Kids beware THQ has made a crumby product in hopes of gaining a quick buck.

    This title is amateurish all the way around, and I would have been more forgiving if the game were just a mistake, but it seems like these people are determined to create low-quality games to sell for a low price and fool the minds of those who can't or don't want to pay much for their games. This is the kind of game that brings the Wii down to embarrassing levels, and everyone should be against that.

    Not only have no changes been made to the gameplay since its release nearly two years ago, but the newly reformatted control scheme just feels unnecessary. Controlling your clunker with the Wii-mote feels overly loose and unresponsive and any other use for the controller just involves shaking the Wii-mote up and down throughout the title's tediously boring mini-games.

    While everything basically works as it should, steering is still made difficult by a mixture of poor camera angles and claustrophobic tracks.

    Seriously, even if you are a fan of the original game, you will be hard-pressed to find the appeal of this title and will be disappointed in the end. Play the original, it’ll be cheaper and more entertaining in the long run.

    Dragon Ball: Evolution is probably a terrible movie, but I can say with all certainty that it is a terrible game. Poor graphics, a non-existent soundtrack, long loading times, and sparse play value make this title one that you should definitely skip.
