    There's a good amount of content and game modes, but it's all based on the terrible core gameplay mechanics.

    Painfully low production values, unsatisfying action, and outright confusing controls.

    This game is clearly a rushed mess, and perhaps should have taken a nod from the Superman Returns video game and not been released until The Golden Compass inevitable DVD release.

    A real clunker.

    Myst DS is a game you have to avoid like eating Fritos before a first date.

    A sad story. The game had an interesting concept and a good amount of potential but it just never came together.

    The most that can be said in support of Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad is that it's mildly amusing, at first, to slice through countless zombies in quick succession, while watching the blood fly. From there it's all downhill: the sex and blood represent a dedication to offense, not art; there's no technique required in the hardest immediately available difficulty; the game was poorly executed on a technical level.

    With extremely dated graphics, poor sound, archaic mechanics, and a loser of a plot, this game just doesn't measure up to any standard. This dummy just needs to crash and be done with it.

    When your game makes you want to skip the egregiously tedious gameplay so you can see what happens in the utterly forgettable story, you know you're doing something wrong.

    Virtua Tennis 4, however, seems to take about a dozen steps backward, with few redeeming features able to keep your interest. Hopefully, they take a long hard look at their flaws and serve up a better product the next time around. Until then, where's my Wii Sports?

    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.
