    What we get is a boring cartoon button masher which quite honestly should have come out on Xbox Live instead of a $50 disc.

    The gameplay is flawed, the controls are horrible and the on-rails racing creates a game that almost plays itself.

    Mildly entertaining as a whole. It features good music, decent graphical aspects, but its severe shortcomings slow down whatever good concept the title originally held. I recommend renting this title first before deciding to buy it. If you’re looking for a real off-road experience you better off getting THQ’s BAJA.

    Maelstrom will practically feel like a nostalgic trip down memory lane with all of the bugs you knew and loathed.

    It reeks of "shovel-ware," a game that was stripped of both function and price then sent to retailers in the hopes of turning a quick buck. The gameplay is shallow and often needlessly frustrating, with few attacks really being entertaining, but most lacking any sort of humorous overtone.

    I have no patience for a game that has as many bugs as this one does. There’s no excuse for it except laziness or just a sheer contempt of the game playing public.

    Consistently poor design decisions were what seem to have drained all the fun from this title, a pity because it’s not like the market is saturated with Squad-RTS titles.

    Boring, difficult (due to poor design) and repetitive.

    Winx Club: Join the Club is a bad game and really not worth your time to look at much less subject your child to.

    Don’t even bother to get this, the average rating for this game is above 50 percent from all the reviews and mine won’t make it any better. The game is not really up to a standard that would make it playable unless you just don’t care much about graphics.

    After a decade of jumping on arrows, shaking maracas, and pointing out grooves onscreen, I think I am finally burned out on dance games. I had hopes that Just Dance might help revive my interest in the genre, but sadly it only made things worse. Just Dance just isn’t that great of a game, period.

    Earlier this year, I was pleasantly surprised by NERF: N-Strike Elite – a far better on-rails shooter than Cybertron Adventures is. And given that the Wii has so many other on-rails shooters like Dead Space Extraction and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, that there is no reason to waste your time and money on Transformers: Cybertron Adventures.

    Flat, short and repetitive. In a phrase, "this game is 'Double Dragon,' in 3D with gratuitous boobs". Sound like your cup of tea?

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Stealth Force Edition should be avoided entirely.

    Blackwater is a definite step in the right direction to providing the motion-based FPS like the one promised when Microsoft announced their Kinect camera peripheral. But between the controversial backstory, the dicey subject matter, the terrible presentation, and the sketchy controls, it is a game that is better left on the shelf. If you want a better Kinect shooter experience, check out Gunstringer.

    We all know that sex sells, especially when it comes to nerdy, dateless, video gamers. But when you use sex to sell a totally broken and dysfunctional game built on a sport that I truly love, well, you have gone too far.

    The only positive thing I can say about the game is that the designers at least nailed the look and feel of the show, but how hard was that when you have all the artists, and actors?

    I honestly have to say that I had fun with this game just because the gameplay is so outrageously bad.

    If you happen to run across Furu Furu Park for a ridiculously low price it may be worth it but mostly it isn’t.

    The sheer frustration of the flaws of each minigame was just enough to want to forget about the game altogether.

    Big League Sports is a miserable game that should have been released as a $10 Wii Ware title than an actual retail offering. Avoid this game at all costs. It’s neither fun nor original and has no place in your Wii game collection.

    The stunts are repetitive in nature, not very difficult and very hard to control. I take pity on this game. It could probably be a hit on a console, just not on a GBA.

    Dead Mage Studios have said they are going to put out an update to fix these issues but for the time being we will just have to make do. Garshasp shows potential but it needs some fixes to make it worth that $19.99. At only three and a half hours of gameplay and with all the constant bugs and glitches, I can't condone the pricing when you are going to be regretting it more and more as you play through.

    If you play Street Supremacy for longer than an hour then you must really be hurting for entertainment. The Team Battle career mode is a cool concept but the poor controls and dismal racing action won’t support it.

    If you are interested in owning a piece of PSP gaming history then get a copy of WTF, but don't open it. Much like Pandora's Box, once opened the evil that lurks inside can never be put back and it will surely consume us all.

    I was completely disappointed. It tries to be exactly like Mario Kart, but it doesn’t even come close to that level of enjoyment. This genre does not need any more lame imitators. It needs innovators.

    An utterly useless waste of 800 Microsoft Points.

    If you enjoy flailing your arms around aimlessly for hours, then this Wii game is for you.

    If you really like the show, and can deal with plenty of bugs and broken gameplay you may find Law & Order: Criminal Intent enjoyable. I doubt it, but anything is possible.

    The graphics are bland, the sound is grating, and the gameplay is about as much fun as watching paint dry. There are better things you could do with twenty dollars.
