    Come on already! Stop pinching pennies and live a little, man. Splurge on a quality game, one that offers solid gameplay and true entertainment. Things you won’t find in Motocross Mania 3.

    Anyone older than 3 that picks this game up for themselves should really have their head examined. The reason is simple: Animaniacs is a child’s game through and through, but the gameplay is way too frustrating for the intended audience.

    Difficult controls and gameplay that somehow manages to be hectic and boring at the same time are packaged in an uninspiring shell of so-so graphics and sounds (which were so unremarkable that the developers had the good sense to include an option to mute them entirely).

    Legend of the Dragon is a disappointment for a fighting game. There is a general lack of anything that stands out to make it worth paying attention to or purchasing.

    The coolest thing about Damnation is the cover art, and you can enjoy that as you watch this game go from the shelf to the bargain bin in record time, and even then I can’t recommend a purchase or even a rental.

    Even the pin action is in question; with beautiful pocket shots rendering less than expected damage, and sure-bet spares often being lost somewhere in the shuffle.

    The PSP has been floundering as a system for years now and its uninspired games like these that will contribute to its ultimate demise. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a great movie and a fun game on the consoles but avoid this PSP abomination at all costs.

    f this is the future of the Kinect, then the future is looking bad. Like post-apocalyptic bad. A bowling game could have been a must-buy for the Kinect. If Wii bowling has proven anything, it is that people of all ages and genders love virtual bowling, and pretending to do it can be a total blast. This is not the bowling game that the Kinect deserves, and I would advise waiting until somebody crafts one worthy of the Kinect's impressive abilities.

    Just how big a fan of Rave Master are you? Are you big enough and crazy enough to shell out thirty bucks for a crappy game, a less informative manual, and some mildly pretty colors?

    If your nostalgia for the early 90s extends to muddled graphics, tinny sound effects, and tepid gameplay, you'll be thrilled with this game. Otherwise, you'd be better off playing an original action game.

    The worst part is that Asphalt 6 on the iPhone costs $5 and looks and probably plays better than this $40 installment of the series. If you want a racing experience on the 3DS, I hear Ridge Racer is a lot better. Don't waste your time or money with Asphalt 3D.

    This would make for an okay budget title, but at a $40 price tag, it's a complete rip-off. Unless you're a die-hard puzzle fan who happens to spot this in a bargain bin, Mind Gym 3D isn't worth it.

    At the end of the day, Confrontation just isn't a very good game.

    AMY
    AMY is choked full of interesting concepts, clever puzzles, and a truly terrifying gameplay atmosphere, but whatever potential this game has to be great, or even good, is torpedoed by the unforgiving checkpoint and save system.

    I hate trashing any game, but Gundam was just so confusing, unwieldy, and mentally frustrating, I cannot be kind.

    Somewhere in the desert, next to that landfill full of ET Atari 2600 game cartridges there is a growing pile of Bomberman: Act Zero…exactly where it belongs.

    If you like tasteless "edgy" games that have mind numbingly repetitive gameplay, then Crime Life: Gang Wars is right up your alley.

    I feel sort of bad ripping this game so badly, but I went into it really hoping to be blown away, and came away feeling like I, and anyone else unfortunate enough to have fallen for their ruse, had been duped.

    Sadly, the sound is the best part of Air Conflicts, but who really cares about sound when the game looks below average and is virtually unplayable.

    As the glut of new consumers begins to wise up to the ways of the gaming world and the profit potential for a critically panned game starts dropping, such games will likely fade out a little bit. For now, keep checking reviews and making informed decisions about the games you purchase--or you may well end up throwing away $30.00 of hard-earned money on a game like Wonder World Amusement Park, and that would be a shame.

    Cubixx HD is probably a great game for people who like a challenge because as you get closer to the 50th level you have many more enemies on screen and tons of laser chasers following you so you really have to think on your toes or fingers, whatever the case may be. At the low price of 9.99 on PSN it's not at all expensive, but just not the sort of game I would pay that much for.

    Ultimately, Stronghold 3 is a promising game that really could have used another year or two of development time.

    I would not recommend this game even if you are a very die hard adventure fan as it is does not follow any kind of logical path for solving a mystery nor tells a very good story.

    Find a good book and read, or get a real game, but stay clear of Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars. It is that bad and if you don’t want to take my word for it then check out the other ratings, the average on the internet is somewhere around 2.5 out of ten. Yes, it is that boring and dull.

    You do nothing else while playing but hit the start and end button, occasionally buy things for your store and manage employees.

    A lame-ass game. Mucha Lucha: Mascaritas of the Lost Code is a horrible piece of work that should have never been released.

    The execution however was so deeply flawed I don’t know why it even shipped.

    TerraWars is the worst game I’ve played in several years.

    For the love of everything that you hold dear about your children do not buy them this for their GBA if they like Yu-Gi-Oh. Buy them cards instead, at least they’ll get half way decent art work and will have other kids to play with.

    I like the Final Fantasy Tactics games and was initially impressed with the presentation of Spectral Souls, but after the very first battle I was convinced that this game was going to be long and agonizing, and it was.
