    Despite selling for a steal, Space Raiders barely justifies the price of admission. Hard-core audiences will scoff at the game's wasted potential.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The rather simple controls lack any sort of considerable depth that would keep the game interesting. In fact, most of the time, just hitting random buttons will pull off some pretty impressive punches, kicks, and flips.

    Amusing enough for an Old West-themed shooter, but the so-called new features are either gimmicks, or, as in the case of the auto-aiming, outright annoying. The game is decent for the most part, but doesn't do the great subject matter justice.

    Warpath isn't horrible, but it is incredibly uninspired. The design is, on every level, lackluster, as if the developers were so sick of the genre that they didn't even try this time.

    When it comes down to it, The Darkest Faerie plays like a Zelda knockoff and looks like a Spyro ripoff. Save for the mote system, there really isn't anything interesting going on, which would be fine if the execution were better.

    The game is also short. It shouldn't take you more than a day to complete the 13 levels. Though after tediously walking through gray room after gray room it could feel more like a year.

    The game creators obviously didn’t consult Palahniuk. Maybe he would’ve sat them down, and explained the yet-released ninth rule: Don’t make a crap fighting game and call it Fight Club.

    Dark Arena's graphics are average at best. Much of the architecture is plain-looking and the average enemy sports only a half-dozen character animations.
    • 55 Metascore

    Middling level design along with an over-reliance on mobbing the player with nearly impossible situations make Hunt a disappointing release.

    Lost Magic for the Nintendo DS combines all the fun of drawing letters, trying to remember arcane symbols, dying repeatedly, cursing like a sailor at having died repeatedly, and getting carpal tunnel syndrome repeatedly tapping a stylus against a touch screen in order to fast-forward through a series of conversations that manage to be simultaneously inane and overlong.

    It seems like the slightly retarded love child of Meteos and Tetris DS – a clunky excuse to use the stylus more than a fun experience. Both of those games – despite their own flaws – are miles better than Pokemon Trozei!
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    But this brief, easy, and repetitive experience never comes close to the games it’s emulating.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The mix of mission and circuit racing along with the interesting ranking system are offset by the poor mechanics and sloppy design.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The painfully simplistic controls and short nature of the mini-games aren't going to satisfy most players, even those who routinely fire up the Wii to play with friends.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The textures are model, character models are laughable up-close, and the game has a toylike look that doesn't really pay homage to the historical backdrop.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fix the navigation system, ease back on the creature auto-leveling, patch the game, and you’d be closer to something that rated three or even four stars than this unfortunate mess of a "Diablo" wannabe.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's exactly what you'd expect in a licensed third-person action/adventure. But that's the problem. We liked the additional characters and multiplayer options, but the gameplay and graphics are uninspired.
    • 45 Metascore

    NFL Tour has its fun moments, but the gameplay is just so damn shallow.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Nexus plays like a great game that misses the mark almost every step of the way. It’s slick, complex, and ambitious. But the potential here is never realized.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Feels like a great game that wasn't finished. It's not that the game's too short; it's that it's too sparse. More enemy types, weapons, and spells could have really fleshed this out into a hack-and-slash classic. As is, it feels like a demo stretched into a full length game -- and a short one at that.
    • 73 Metascore

    There’s something oddly compelling about the game. When you’re not online, you’re constantly worried about what’s going on. Once you meet up with other players, that worry becomes dread.
    • 61 Metascore

    The online mode and audio commentary show that the series holds promise, but even hard-core college football fans will feel frustrated by this game.
    • 55 Metascore

    Next to Silkworm and Ninja Gaiden, these efforts are just warm-up practice for the real thing. Even at a budget price, spend accordingly.
    • 47 Metascore

    A good game design need to fire in all cylinders. Mage Knight Apocalypse stumbles on so many levels, it’s a wonder they ever got it out the door.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    But there's nothing in the game that you haven't already heard blabbed around the water cooler. Besides, if you play the modest mess that is Lost: Via Domus you'll never again wonder if the TV series has jumped the shark. It can't possibly get this muddled.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The greatest crime depicted in the game isn't Syndrome's machinations, but the speed with which the lame design renders dull action out of such cool characters.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's the kind of game that pads itself out with random fights. And, worst of all, it's type of game that tries to pass tired techno-babble off as story. This crime is all the more heinous considering the fact that Mega Man Star Force 2 is aimed squarely at young gamers.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It has plenty of significant flaws mixed with some excellently done gameplay elements.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The concepts are solid, the story is excellent, and the characters sustain. Aesthetically it is a beautiful piece of work. It's just not all that much fun to play, especially when bugs have left parts of the game incomplete.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While the presentation is PSP-worthy, the gameplay isn’t. The default “nub” control makes it hard to guide players where you want them too, especially when trying to land a check or two on defense.
