    The video game equivalent to a straight-to-video B-movie: it can be entertaining in spots, even though you know the whole is painfully lame.
    • 57 Metascore

    The game itself is average. The controls don’t do enough to make the game stand out. The extras and bonus features are pointless.
    • 70 Metascore

    The lack of character customization is another issue, with fixed classes and no input allowed on individual skills, attributes, or spells other than purchasing armor, weapons, and accessories each time you visit town.

    FPS fanatics looking for a fix before the big guns are released might try Chaser, but all other gamers beware. You'll probably want a chaser of a different kind to wash down this title.

    Either way, Jaws Unleashed is best thrown to the sharks. Having your actual torso bitten off by an actual great white might actually be preferable to this.

    Without a sound tactical game, Desperados 2 is only fun so long as you enjoy trying to guess what the hell the developers were thinking.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Console-style role-playing badly needs to move forward, and games like this are just keeping it stuck in the last century.

    For some, Shellshock may represent the true horrors of war; for us, it simply embodies the terror of a bad game.

    Warriors Orochi is really only for the hardcore fans of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises. We freely admit that we’re not one of those. You either like it or you don’t. You either care about the story or you don’t. Put Average Joe Gamer and this reviewer down in the “don’t” column.

    No amount of clever quips and Master Chief parody characters is worth slogging through a shooter that makes Dark Sector look like an inspired stroke of genius. By the end of the game, no amount of clever enemy character names or profanity-laced outbursts by Neil Patrick Harris can distract you from the fact that you’re simply not having much fun.

    The real problem is the bland graphics, micromanagement, and repetitive gameplay. Good RTS games know that and tend to create missions you can complete in a variety of ways. Not so here.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Feels like a generic platformer with Looney Tunes characters pasted on top of it. All of the irreverent one-liners in the world can't save it, and neither can half-hearted appearances by supporting characters.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The team-building aspect and gambling mechanics are great, and give the game a bit of a role-play feel, which serves to nearly offset the horrible load times and mediocre fighting action—but not quite.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Everything about the game feels clumsy. The graphics are mediocre, the gameplay is middling and repetitive, and the completely shallow glorification of drug use is either appalling or just plain stupid.

    We can't stress how much fun we had with Super Off Road. It truly is one of the more timeless arcade racing games.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    More than once we snapped back from a gaming haze, wondering why we were still playing.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While the counter-attacks and the beasts add something to the lacklustre gameplay, everything else from cameras to enemies makes it a chore to slog through one end of a level to another.

    Light on substance and heavy on style. If you're a One Piece madman who simply has to have everything to do with the series, it's not a horrible game. It's just not exceptional. As a multiplayer party game, it's good for a quick fix every once in a while.
    • 35 Metascore

    The whole thing feels exactly like what it is: tacked-on product placement.
    • 36 Metascore

    While it's definitely the safest route for publishers looking to make a buck on the hottest movie of the month, it sure doesn't make for engaging gameplay.
    • 59 Metascore

    Even factoring in the many heart-pounding battles with gangs of bloodthirsty zombies, there's no denying that most of the game is spent walking around hallways trying to find a key or some other random object.

    A middling action/adventure, The DaVinci Code has some interesting elements and puzzles, but tries too hard to be a jack of all trades. The presentation is mediocre, the combat extraneous and out of place, and the levels uninspired. The puzzles and teamwork elements are the high point, but overall, this is yet another forgettable attempt to cash in on a popular franchise.

    If you ever run into one of the erstwhile developers of Stainless Stell Studios, you should probably buy him or her a beer and let them cry on your shoulder; it’s gotta hurt to see a game you made that obviously started out with a lot of potential get released in such an unfinished state.

    Yet another DS title that feels like it should have been part of a larger overall game, rather than the entire focus of the product.

    The ability to make your own dance patterns is not a dumb idea per se. Dance Factory would be an interesting gimmick if it was attached to an otherwise good DDR clone.

    Arena Football may be an engaging sport to watch in real life, with the excitement of packed arenas and the promise of frenzied action on the shortened field, but the developers did a poor job in conveying that sense of atmosphere in the game.

    The rest of the Grand Theft Auto series is dirt cheap now, and offers better gameplay in a far more massive world, with vastly superior graphics. So, unless you have absolutely maxed out on all things GTA, it’s unlikely that Liberty City Stories will be anything but a minor curiosity.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The tiny, blocky graphics do little to immerse you into the park, and the unwieldy controls make relatively simple actions needlessly difficult.
    • 64 Metascore

    The other issue introduced into the game thanks to the PSP hardware is a downright horrible camera.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The same players who found relentless, party-balancing corridor fighting ultimately frustrating in a cute, cartoony game like "Evolution Worlds" won't find it any more refreshing here just because it's wearing a darker, spookier "Aliens" costume.
