    Dull, tedious, repetitive. Any sense of creativity seems largely wasted.

    Aside from the novelty of trying to rap a few of your favorite songs, this game is more than lame. It would be useful for up and coming rappers to hone their chops but do we really need to perpetuate this dumbed-down art form? Get the karaoke game and learn how to sing.

    The best tip of all is to avoid this one altogether.

    Like the kart racers of fighters. It's a generic 2D fighter that has limited control and very little depth. Not recommended for hardcores.

    Are we going to be forever destined to inferior products based on popular characters wading through a series of hackneyed mini games?

    Not only does the game look bad with last decade's graphics, but the controls are way too loose making any kind of sudden changes in direction virtually impossible.

    The biggest complaint is that the games suffer from slowdown, especially when the scrolling can't keep up to the speed of the character.

    I can't think of a more awful looking game. The textures are so low res that the water looks like a meadow. It reminds me of Atari's Duck Hunt. At any moment I expect the snickering dog to appear holding a fish in his paws - snickering at what a fool I've been to have purchased this game.

    As stupid as this blend of car battling and wrestling may sound it's not a bad game but it's certainly not going to make any reviews' top ten list.

    The animation is choppy and the control response isn't very smooth. There are some collision detection problems where some hits don't register even though you can clearly see them connect on the screen.

    Nothing more than a stagnant, relentlessly boring game. You can exploit everything the game has to offer in less than a couple of hours.

    Not only is Evolution Snowboarding a lame snowboarding game but it's a lame fighter as well, so you know what that makes the whole game don't you?

    It's a shell of what might be a new Christmas classic which is, in one way, sad but the fact that the movie may be around for along time may tempt a developer to do this game justice in the future.

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

    There's nothing here that would warrant this game being on the Xbox. It doesn't look good, the sounds are average, the tunes are forgettable and the gameplay is unimaginative.

    Few kids possess the capacity required to make sense of this scrambled, onscreen action in real time. It will just frustrate all those that play it except the odd MENSA member.

    The game's biggest problem is the programming of the AI. When you assemble your team, little do you realize what idiots they all turn out to be. It's like they're all on crack or something.

    Here's a game that almost accomplishes the impossible - it virtually embarrasses bowlers. And that's not an easy task given the mullet-loving, trailer-dwelling life forms that festoon the substratum of the high-glossed lanes.

    The AI follows a scripted battle plan that remains virtually unchanged regardless of what strategies you implement against them. To that end the game doesn't have much of a real-time feel.

    A collecting RPG in the tradition of Pokemon - shamefully so. But instead of expanding on this style of gameplay that's already been done to death, The Shaman King sees fit to simplify it so that it offers a challenge akin to turning a water faucet on and off.

    While "The Sims" can get deep, The Urbz: Sims in the City is a very light version of the original. This game is designed for girls that haven't yet grown out of the Barbie phase. The Urbz is the shallowest version of The Sims yet.

    Don't even bother going online. The game is virtually unplayable.

    Everything about it is low quality, from the music to the terrible cutscenes.

    A really uninspired racing game. It seems to be aimed at kids as young as a fetus with the exception of the sudden increase in difficulty that even gave me a headache. And not because it was challenging but because it's annoyingly difficult due to the lack of control.

    Nothing is more embarrassing, or fun to watch, than something that someone thinks is cool, which falls flat while they really try to sell it with clueless enthusiasm. Just about every aspect of this game falls flat, from the gameplay to the soundtrack.

    It may have a sophisticated graphics engine and a good assortment of aircraft but for a game that should be presented in 3D, it falls flat.

    Once you get past the graphics you will be confronted with a cold and sterile fighting engine. The game is barren in the area of options, menu and unlockables.

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

    It is quite unfortunate that the company that essentially invented the music genre has produced such a poor title, but Rock Revolution just doesn’t have any redeeming qualities. From the poor music selection to the bad visuals, this game doesn’t stand well on its own, and can’t even be considered good as a supplement to current music titles.
