    A half-baked, incomplete, predictable, buggy, broken mess of a game that punished players for purchasing it. It pulls together to be one of the most improperly executed titles in recent memory. There's no getting around the fact, 007 Legends is a bad game.

    Fails on its own with boring level design and sloppy, unsatisfying gameplay. The vulgarity of the setting just makes it worse.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The game tells its story horribly, your character is both improbable and without any personality, the AI is terrible, the gameplay lackluster, and graphics middling. Even as a budget title, which Turning Point is certainly doomed to become, the game is hardly worth the bother.

    What's more troubling is the absurd number of glitches littered throughout the game -- in gameplay, graphics, and sound.

    They made the world, but forgot to put a game in it. There's so little friction here that a sharp gamer can easily blow through the game in four or five hours.

    I think Boogie is a horrible game. It’s so bad; I’m nearly offended that I even had to play it. Sure it’s aimed squarely at the casual market, but casual gamers aren’t necessarily stupid gamers.

    A poorly conceived, poorly executed mess. It’s an insult to the intelligence of gamers everywhere, and that’s no mean feat.

    The great selection of poker styles is ruined by limited play options, a horrible presentation and crappy player A.I. Save yourself some cash and just buy a deck of cards instead.

    Play the first level of Cake Mania and you've played them all.

    At least we now have a low bar for Grand Theft Auto clones.

    If you’re yearning to do something other than dress your cat as Baby for the tenth time, then I highly recommend checking out your local internet provider for a slew of better flash games that won’t cost you a dime. Dirty Dancing – The Videogame is a cheap attempt to cash in on a twenty year-old movie.

    We could go on to describe the pointless level design, sloppy controls, and graphical glitches galore, but how much more convincing do you need? Don't buy it!

    Bad Day L.A. aims for the biting wit of the "Dave Chapelle Show" but ends up more akin to the jackassery of "Mind of Mencia." Just sort of sad and unfunny.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A simple, unpolished action game. The music is comprised of simple, repetitive loops that are just begging for the mute button, the voice acting is absolutely atrocious, the plot of each campaign is held tenuously together by the slimmest of threads, and the most important part of a game, the gameplay, is shallow and unsatisfying.

    The game isn’t completely without merit, just seriously lacking in fun.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It moves really slowly through some of the most boring levels in the history of the genre, and constantly drops new enemies into the scene completely out of nowhere. It’s just not fun at all.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Awful plot, abysmal gameplay, crappy graphics, and spartan sound bytes: these features do not a winner make.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A short diversion at best -- not something you should spend your hard-earned cash on.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The game fails on every level. The controls are a mess, the camera is terrible, and the presentation is offensively bad.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It’s difficult in a mean, nasty way. I’m sure there are some people out there who are up for a challenge like this. Those people are idiots who have no life. If you really like to be punished this much, I recommend checking out your local S&M bar. You’ll likely find the developers of this game there holding a whip with your name on it.

    Evil incantations have adversely affected the game's characters and the game engine itself. Simply put, Nightcaster II has problems.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A series of frustrating elements add up to an overall inferior experience.

    Sneak King is the gaming equivalent of the Whopper – tasty at first, though nothing special, and it makes you feel kind of ill by the end.

    Crossfire wouldn’t pass muster as a PS2 game, let alone a PS3 launch title. Onlookers will probably mistake it for a PS2 game at first glance. It’s not like we expected a Gundam game to set the world on fire, but even for a Gundam title, Crossfire is a special kind of bad.

    This is some of the weakest, button-mashy gameplay you'll ever experience.

    If you like boring, repetitive, badly done combat, then run, don't walk, to the store and pick this bomb up.

    Strictly for Barbie collectors or fans of the show who have no understanding of what makes a good videogame, American Idol is a cheap rip-off of other, much better games, and an overall unimpressive attempt to cash in on a popular TV phenomenon.

    A steaming pile of unplayable cel shading.

    It's fun to set up teams and track standings, but the soccer is lackluster.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It looks appalling, contains some absolutely egregious gameplay, and subjects the player to some downright execrable dialogue. Whatever it is, Bad Boys is nowhere near good.
