    There are some good concepts here, but they get bogged down in some technical problems and major game clichés. Looking good is one thing, but not being able to run smoothly on qualified machines is another.

    While World Championship Poker featuring Howard Lederer: All In for PS2 isn’t the worst poker game ever made, it’s in the running.

    If you have a really young girl that just wants to play the most simple and repetitive of touchscreen games, there are still numerous other DS titles that have more to offer in that regard. As for everyone else, steer clear.

    For hardcore FPS players looking for a way to keep their skills up while playing by themselves, El Matador might be worth picking up at about $10.

    You might be better off getting a different collection of games or downloading these from the internet for free onto a PDA.

    If you have a really young girl that just wants to tap left, right and the A button, there are still numerous other GBA games that have more to offer in that regard. As for everyone else, steer clear.

    Sony NBA 08 for PSP has all the problems as its PS3 big brother only ... bigger?

    March Madness 07 will make you mad it’s March and the only college hoops game you own is this one; stick with "College Hoops 2K7."

    It's a good flight simulator for the DS, but it feels incomplete and lacks difficulty.

    Outside the rabid RPG fans, who will be intrigued for the unique design, there isn't any engaging experience with Rising Star for more casual players. Even the most rabid of RPG fan will yawn through the poor design.

    It's hard to play, but if you like the tabletop version of the game you'll enjoy having this one on the go.

    In the final analysis, however entertaining the movie might be, Eragon is an experience that’s better to read than it is to play.

    Yes, it’s free. It’s also repetitive, tedious, unambitious and boring. You know how they say “time is money”? Don’t spend your time on this game.

    You may be considering this game because you’re familiar with the film, but if you’re looking for a good “cooking” minigame collection, you’re much better off going for one of the Cooking Mama games. Sadly, Ratatouille: Food Frenzy is just (one more food pun, please!) half-baked.

    Jackass fans, take the $30 you would have spent on this and buy Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 instead. Just pretend the title screen says Jackass Skateboarding and you’ll never know the difference. It’ll certainly be a lot more fun than this piece of garbage.

    Destined for the bottom of the bargain bin. Stay away from this one.

    If you have a choice, play the much-better Game Boy Advance version of Monster House.

    Tries to do a lot of things and wind up not doing very many of them well. It's a good effort but you can find a lot of better titles out there.

    Fans of the show will adore it. Anyone else is more likely to scratch their head in puzzlement and move on to more complete fighters.

    If you really like Godzilla and have a Wii, then you might want to consider waiting for the price to drop before picking this up. Even then, think twice. Your money might be better spent filling out your Godzilla DVD collection.

    Sidetracked is a perfect example of a great idea that didn’t get the proper work to make it shine. With a little more effort, the game could have gone from mediocre to must own.

    If you loved the movies, you'll enjoy the game. The game itself won't do much to endear itself to people looking for solid gameplay.

    Tedious and repetitive at best, boring and uninteresting at worst, there’s really no reason to buy Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean ... especially if you bought either of the previous two.

    While River King: A Wonderful Journey has acceptable graphics and a wealth of locations and varieties of fish to catch, the main problem is that the game just lacks challenge and any feeling that much effort was put into the RPG aspect of the game.

    Fish Tycoon on DS is like that "monster bass" you see from the shore by the weed bed, compared to the tiny baby bass it becomes once it jumps on your hook and you land it. Which means, yeah, I was expecting Fish Tycoon to be better on the DS. It's worse.

    Think of your least-favorite, most painful to endure pirate movie (like maybe The Pirate Movie), multiply it by 10 and turn it into a PC game, and you'll get the idea of what it's like to play Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales.

    This just doesn't cut it. There was some potential, and looking at pirates outside of the frilly shirt and rapier era is a good idea. Swashbucklers was executed so poorly it may scare other developers off the concept.

    A sub par game that missed its potential. There could be more to this title, but developers rushed the title to the door. While this game is bound for the bargain bin, it does have some qualities that make it worth checking out when the price drops.

    If your young one really wants to play a mystery-solving game, get them Hotel Dusk or one of the Phoenix Wright games, which actually involve some problem-solving. If, however, your kid is a die-hard Nancy Drew fan, just get them one of the books – it’s cheaper and you don’t have to put up with shallow, boring gameplay to get to the story.
