    Although Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed shows a lot of potential – the few areas it misses are so detrimental to the gameplay that you would be better off giving this one a pass.

    A decent game. It has several features and modes that I enjoyed. I particularly liked the soundtrack and the sound effects. I did like the Shipyard the most out of the entire game. Sadly the voice acting could have be a LOT better.

    The only thing really saving this title from utter mediocrity is the fact that some of what would be considered problems in a normal game (sloooow combat, bad voice acting) could actually be considered odd strengths, thanks to the Godzilla license.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2 is a complex game for the Yu-Gi-Oh! battles and an interesting way to go around and collect and trade the cards you need. But the storyline is pretty incidental to the game and how you play.

    Yu-Gi-Oh GX: The Beginning of Destiny is another generic Yu-Gi-Oh game with two major sections of gameplay that really do not blend to make a decent game.

    I think this game is a great family game. However, this game only took me about 45 minutes to complete. A young child with some gaming skill would probably have this game beat with an hour and a half.

    This is a third-party game with not very high aspirations. Don’t let the “Wing Series” emblem on the cover fool you into thinking that it is official or historically accurate or anything of the sort.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragons is an average game but there is just too much that could have been better in the main gameplay for a better score.

    I’m an old fan of the Crash Bandicoot license, and I have always loved the games for their clean, family friendly fun. Whether a blockbuster or a barnburner, I have always shared the Crash titles with my kids – and they have always had smiles on their faces. Mind Over Mutant is a different story in that it actually brought tears of frustration – for all of us.

    So in the end C.O.R.E. is decent. If the controls scheme was better it would have been a lot more enjoyable. For the most part it is a system of trial and error, as I became Swiss cheese for more times that I can remember.

    Kung Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors, for all of the charm of the movie, is a shoddily assembled game on the Wii.

    Really the game's major downfall is the clunky controls which make navigating the grid an exercise in frustration and all but cripples the fast-paced gameplay of the board game.

    Just a sub par first person shooter with a few good attributes.

    Planet Minigolf, at least in its current form, is a huge failure and epic disappointment for me. I've been counting the days till its release since it was first announced, and now I am counting the days until it is patched so I can actually play it.

    For a game that began life as a gritty and realistic gladiatorial combat game, I was sad to discover that the process of watering down the content to a more family-friendly level has also diluted the entertainment potential of this title, especially since so many fighting games do wonders with a Teen rating and similarly outrageous characters.

    If there's any real fault of Crime Lab, it's that it doesn't do anything particularly new or interesting. It's a well-crafted game that anyone looking the pass the time on a bus ride or a lunch break could have a grand old time with, but it does little to tantalize the senses of capture the imagination.

    This game sucks, but it sucks like being addicted to heroin sucks. Once you take that first hit you can't help but want another. So try to stay away from it, because otherwise you'll end up having to explain those Ashlee Simpson CDs.

    But no matter how big of a fan of the source material I am, there's no getting around the fact that this game is just like a dozen other forgettable titles on the GBA today.

    A few months ago, the table poker video game was a novelty, but as more and more of these games hit the shelves, the quicker the novelty wears off.

    With normal graphics, background music that tends to be forgotten, and low replay-ability, Geist is better off on the store shelves than in your Gamecube, at least until it hits the bargain bins.

    The uninspired music, the trite voice acting, the horrible gameplay, and the lack of challenge makes this one of the worst titles in the Ninja Turtle series.

    If you really feel like inflicting some permanent damage on an unsuspecting 5 year old then by all means pick this title up. Otherwise, just put in LittleBigPlanet and be considered the cool adult in the room.

    Ultimately, this game is an attempt by an indie company to make a good-looking, story-driven action arcade game. Bottom line, if you're looking for a really dynamic, fast-paced combat game, you'll want to consider looking somewhere else. If you're interested in seeing what an indie developer can do with a genre that hasn't really been tapped yet, then feel free to check it out. This game is different from your usual shooter, attempting to add depth (wow...bad pun?) to a possibly worn-out style of game. Did they succeed? Not really. I feel bad, because I wanted to like this game, but it's really just a beat up car with a nice paint job.

    I was really looking forward to Wheels of Destruction: World Tour, but with no real story or campaign mode for offline play, and not enough competition to fuel the laggy and limited online modes, this game is in dire need of a complete overhaul. In a world where Twisted Metal exists; this game doesn't stand a chance.

    This was doomed from the beginning. I played it with an open mind though and found some enjoyment out of collecting cards and managing my decks. Once the battles started all that enjoyment went away I went back to disliking card games.

    In summary, I'd say the biggest weakness with 1914 Shells of Fury is the feeling that you have little control over what happens.

    While this would have been the best Warriors game to date, the frame-rate issue and other technical problems really eliminate it from contention. Hopefully KOEI will patch this game to make it more playable, but with their obvious disregard for their fan-base I doubt it.

    Considering the relatively short gameplay length (the entire storyline can be completed in a single sitting), and the frustrating controls – there’s little reason any seasoned gamer would want to go through all of the trouble.

    A nice visual and audible replication of the anime, but it still lacks the in-depth story of a true anime.

    This game probably had promise but turned out to be your standard first person shooter with the addition of some popular rap music thrown in.
